Dimensions extends its influence with the start of its label -- Dimensions Recordings. The label launches with a 12-track compilation across three separate discs, An Introduction. Part 1 has an earthy, worldly feel to it. From the Swahili sung harmonies on Mim Suleiman's "Pole Pole", to the Afro influences of Swiss collective Alma Negra's "Onga", both tracks work raw percussion with just enough swing. Istanbul's Kerem Akdag provides the jazz-tinted, deep roller "Getdownsoclose", making use of lush pads and rushing snares. Maryland's James Tillman closes with soulful vocals on "Wander", which sit gracefully over transcendental keys and compellingly loose drumming.
