Black Decelerant – “two”


Another stunner out of RVNG Intl. The label’s roster of artists who straddle the line between ambient and jazz is already strong, and they now add Black Decelerant, prepping a second volume of reflections from the duo of Khari Lucas, aka Contour, and Omari Jazz. The album explores improvisational jazz themes and blends them with meditative textures, allowing space and reflection. The duo intend that the space to allow for “meditations on themes of Black being and nonbeing, life and mourning, expansion and limitation, and the individual and collective.” The first cut, ‘two,” wafts in on cold air and a spectral signal of brass. The fogged surroundings of the accompanying video compliment the song’s gauzed air. It carries a sense of trying to remember these themes across time, passed down through storied recounting that begins to muffle the details once its etched onto thrice dubbed tapes. The new record surfaces June 21st from RVNG Intl.
