I Asked You A Question Released Today!

February 8th • 2016

Dear friends,

 

I'm very excited to share with you that the new album is now avaialble for purchase on iTunes & Bandcamp!

 

"I feel like i dreamt about this music when i was a child. Some of the colors and energies Nitai and I created here are familiar to me in a weird nostalgic way. "

- Rejoicer

 

Keyboards were always part of my musical entity. I’m lucky to have Rejoicer as a producer. Besides being there for me and open minded to any concept, he has the ability to stretch ideas without taking away from the artistic and musical direction. That kind of a workflow was different from other recording sessions I had. On this album we made beats, combining acoustic and electronic elements; editing, sampling and the result is an empirical but genuine attempt to get the right balance between the two. Hope you enjoy this milestone as much as we enjoyed creating it.

 

Lastly, an immense gratitude goes to all of you who support the music.

 

Love,

Nitai

January 7th • 2015

Dear fans!

 

I'm deeply excited to share with you the news about the new album, coming out on February 8h, 2016. 

 

In the last six months I have been working on a new project with the colorful and creative producer Rejoicer (Yuval Havkin) from Raw Tapes Label.

The result is a new album- "I Asked You A Question"  consists of a variety of tunes, created together in the studio, exploring the realm of keyboards and beats.  

 

In this kind of creative process, we recorded a few ideas and built a story around each one of them.

Keyobards were always a part of my musical entity together with the Piano, so I'm very happy and greatful to have had the opportunity to capture it and marking my new way as a leader and pianist.

 

"I Asked You A Question"  to be released on February 8, 2016 on Raw Tapes Records and will feature Kurt Rosenwinkel, Georgia Anne Muldrow and more. 

 

Pre-order is available from January 25th on iTunes, Amazon and Band Camp.
