Byron the Aquarius – HighLife EP

I’ve finally gotten my hands on Byron’s HighLife EP and after listening several times I’m still unable to decide which track is my favorite. I’ve heard Byron tackle Hancock’s 1965 Maiden Voyage several times, most recently with Farnell Newton HERE, but he really seems to own the track on Aquarian Voyage. The standard is transformed from a reflective piece into an upbeat call to action with a 50 year facelift that’s sure to get dancefloors warmed up. Run Sa on the other hand, a tribute to fellow Birmingham musician and space traveler Sun Ra, finds Byron assisted by Dimitri Walker on ¬†drums to craft a frenetic groove you’re helpless to resist. Grab the High Life EP HERE and let us know which is your favorite, if you can…
