Debut album from super-project feat. members of Floating Points live band, Zongamin, Vanishing Twin, Lux Prima, JeanGa And George.

Parisian cinema composer Jean-Gabriel Becker is best known for idiosyncratic soundscapes, has worked alongside Massive Attack on acclaimed film soundtracks and recorded with John Foxx. Susumu Mukai, originally from Osaka, Japan, is one of London's most sought after musicians, whose list of collaborators includes Floating Points, Vanishing Twin, Alexis Taylor and Fimber Bravo. Together they've created fresh new music that floats effortlessly above traditional genre delineation, with a dubbed-out and experimental melange of modern acid house, post punk, global grooves and clattering beats.

Still not complying to genres, 'Time Very Near' is their spectacular new album, which gathers sounds and inspiration from an ever-expanding palette of influences, assembled into something amorphously intangible that's simultaneously refreshing and sharp, meandering and cosmic, futuristic but timelessly vintage.
