Ferge X Fisherman - Blinded By The Neon
Keine Bewertungen

This is a concept album, a rap tribute to the art of storytelling in song. Contemplation and a lonesome hero, the early morning hours and a bittersweet emotional cocktail called self-doubt, mixed in equal parts of love and the side-effects of success and the life of an artist, are the inspirations for "Blinded By The Neon", the debut-LP of jazz-hip hop group Ferge X Fisherman. Remarkable, to say the least. Not surprisingly, Tom Wait's solemn album “Heart of Saturday night” – and via that Frank Sinatra's masterpiece “In the wee small hours” – were the inspiration for this modern masterpiece by Fritz Fisherman, the MC from Nuremberg, and the internationally acclaimed producer Ferge from Regensburg.

Thematically, “Blinded By The Neon” revolves around the protagonist's shifting feelings about self-awareness and his equally ambivalent relationships - with his own art and with himself as an artist in his social environment. Musically, the arc of the album spans from the sweet melancholy of jazz samples and tastefully embedded strings to freaky beat maker-aesthetics and on to melodic gospel and soul. The concept of the album determines the musical route and takes (or rather: pulls) the listener on a journey through the protagonist's complex world of ideas. With the Lakeside Boys as live band, having made a name for themselves at about fifty concerts ranging from the main stage of "Free and Outside" to a BR Zündfunk concert to the Taktraum Festival or the Bardentreffen, Ferge X Fisherman demonstrate how impressive and elegant the balancing act between electronically produced hip hop and live instruments can succeed.

They combine the best of both worlds and make the record (and their live gigs) a dynamic, varied pleasure for the listener, which does not lose its attraction even after repeated listening. The best thing to do is let yourself be blinded by neon, not only via the accompanying LP.
