The Heliocentrics are back with their second album for Now-Again, the psychedelic-funk follow up to their debut for the label, Out There. Drawing from funk, jazz, psychedelic, electronic, avant-garde and "ethnic" music The Heliocentrics have returned to develop their epic vision of psychedelic funk, while exploring the possibilities created by their myriad influences - Latin, African and more.
Drawing equally from the funk universe of James Brown, the disorienting asymmetry of Sun Ra, the cinematic scope of Ennio Morricone, the sublime fusion of David Axelrod, Pierre Henry's turned-on musique concrete, and Can's beat-heavy Krautrock, The Heliocentrics create a brand new kind of psychedelia. Drummer Malcolm Catto and bassist Jake Ferguson are the Heliocentrics' masterminds and producers, and guitarist Ade Owusu, percussionist Jack Yglesisas and keyboardist Ollie Parfitt hold constant presence within this ever-evolving ensemble.
With 13 Degrees of Reality, The Heliocentrics establish themselves as one of Now-Again's most eclectic, exciting acts, alongside a roster that includes Dimlite, The Whitefield Brothers and Mr. Chop. They're at home at this imprint dedicated to releasing the best in global funk and psychedelic groove.
