Brussels-based producer, DJ and multi-instrumentalist Kuna Maze aka Edouard Gilbert shares his new EP My Fish Is Burning including jazz-bruk-banger titled Bill. The lead-single features keyboard player Dorian Dumont, who adds some extra magic touches to Kuna Maze’s layered jazz instrumentation and syncopated broken beat production.
Talking about the wonderfully bizarre EP name My Fish Is Burning (a nod to a Detroit - legend) Edouard says: I was listening to a Moodymann interview on radio, and at one point he says to the interviewer; ‘hold on I gotta go, my fish is burning’. I don’t know why but it made me laugh, like he planned an interview while cooking his fish meal.
