Dream About You by the group Jazza Experiment, based in Lisbon, Portugal is a song that critiques modern existence through the eyes of one who is ‘woke’ to discover what life has become. The song documents the observations of the protagonist who, in a final attempt to prevent the horror he encounters finds himself stuck in this time. The song is a message and a call to reevaluate the direction we as humanity have chosen.
The production masterfully made by Jazzafari tapping into his unlimited musical scope acts as the perfect canvas for Synik to weave a story that is cinematic in its approach. An enchanting saxophone solo by Bernardo Tinoco ends the song. With images captured by Nuno Modesto and editing by Jazzafari the video is minimalistic focusing on the protagonist who finds himself in this nightmare.
Jazza Experiment combines the numerours talents of Jazzafari (vocals/ lyricist/ bass/ MPC/ effects/ synths/ composer/ producer/ video/ artwork), Lana Gasparotti (keys/synths/composer/artwork) (Portugal), and Synik (rapper/ guitarist/ composer/ lyricist) (Zimbabwe) connected by a common love for music. They already boast two other releases, Trust and Purple Flowers currently on rotation on Portugal’s airwaves and they are set to continue to create their space-jazz offbeat music that captures the imagination.
