Hamburg-based drummer/composer, Silvan Strauss flips crunchy Madlib-soaked beats with hazed-out contemporary jazz on debut album Facing, forthcoming on artist/producer Farhot’s label, Kabul Fire this November 2022.

Featuring UK jazz luminary, Joe Armon-Jones (Ezra Collective, Nubya Garcia) and a medley of Hamburg’s most exciting new jazz talent, Strauss’s Facing connects the dots between Badbadnotgood, Yussef Dayes and Kiefer across ten finessed, lo-fi beatscapes and experimental, jazz rooted electronic. 

Across its ten tracks, Facing is full of intricate patterns, tricky time signatures and complex stylistic fusions but here lies the talent at hand, it sounds fun, light and accessible. Incisively focused on the listener, never over-playing, Strauss’s Facing is a coherent and balanced debut album that throughout its 22 minutes never loses sight of the end goal; A rare success for a debut album.

“I wanted to make it so that people love to listen to it. It’s a little wonky, sure a few imperfections but fuck it, it’s fun and alive!” - Bandcamp
