The album is an “homage to the Blue Note Jazz sound of Thelonious Monk, John Coltrane, Herbie Hancock fused together with the classic Chicago House and Acid sensibilities of Larry Heard, Armando, Adonis et al”, shares Soul Jazz.

The Red Notes follows Moss’ A.R.E. Project EP collaboration with Shabaka Hutchings and Sarathy Korwar – one of our favourite 12″s of 2017.
