Review: Szabolcs Bognár, the creative force behind Àbáse, presents Awakening, an album that encapsulates a profound journey through life’s cycles and spiritual reflections. Recorded in just four days at Berlin’s Brewery Studios, Awakening draws from a rich tapestry of influences—classic Lagos Afrobeat, traditional Hungarian folk, Yoruba rhythms, house, techno, and hip-hop—woven together with exquisite modal improvisation. The album’s recording process was notably organic, capturing mostly first and second takes with minimal editing, showcasing the raw and intimate performances of Bognár and his collaborators. Highlights include 'Menidaso (My Hope),' a powerful Afro-infused piece featuring percussionist Eric Owusu’s evocative invocation, and 'Shining,' a tribute to J Dilla, enriched by the laughter of Bognár’s daughter, Flóra. 'Bloom (Flóra)' stands out with its delicate interplay between piano, strings, flute, saxophone, and Mini Moog, embodying the album’s spirit of wonder and melancholy. The improvisational 'Sun Is Away,' inspired by a late-night nod to Sun Ra, features contributions from Sun Ra Arkestra members, adding a cosmic touch to the album. Awakening is a showpiece for Àbáse’s ability to explore the continuum of life and music, creating a deeply moving and authentic listening experience.

Review: Hungarian producer and keyboardist Szabolcs Bognar, known as Abase, explores cosmic unity through his music, now based in Berlin at the forefront of the city's burgeoning jazz scene. His latest album, Awakening, released by Analogue Foundation and Oshu Records, reflects a period of personal milestones and introspection. Recorded swiftly at Berlin's Brewery Studios, it blends influences from Afrobeat, Hungarian folk, Yoruba rhythms, and more, infused with Coltrane-esque improvisation. Tracks like 'Destruction Everywhere' and 'Menidaso' merge spiritual jazz with Afrobeat, featuring vocalist Eric Owusu. 'Awakening' marks a profound musical journey, emphasising unity, dialogue, and self-reflection in a transcendent listening experience.
