2020 has been a strange year and we all had to stay home a lot. Looking for indoor fun during lockdown - we started to revisit old multitracks to see if we can improve the sound of 10 year old recordings. The results were great, so we moved on to the next track... and after a few weeks the whole Colours Caffé album got remixed. Back in 2010, Colours Caffé was our first home mixed material, 'rescued' by Ty Tabor's (King's X) amazing mastering job. So this year, the principle was the same: to make this album sound best, using all the mixing experience and knowledge we gained in the last ten years. Following the success of our third album, Senki madara, we got very confident in our audio materials and dynamic sound.
During this remixing process the band suffered the unexpected loss
of our keyboard player, Enyedi "YeDi"Zsolt.
We dedicate this release to the loving memory of Zsolt.

Got hooked after the first 5 minutes.
A lengthy genre pioneered (arguably) by Yes, but taken further by Fragile, and missing from the latter yes albums.
Fragile are their own band, leaving the tribute tag behind.
Yep.... more to explore.
Looking forward to receiving the CD. Wish their was an option for an autographed copy though.

Ukrainian musician/composer/producer Antony Kalugin is amazingly prolific. Amongs all his other projects this was already the 13th Karfagen album (released in early 2022). Of course, a new one is ready to see the light of day in early 2023 ;-)
This album is (as all his stuff) clearly 70s oriented, "golden-era prog", extremely rich in melodies and arrangement ideas. Some jazzy, folky, classical influences included and very well sounding, too :-)
Almost disappeared in the deep wishlist 8-o
