Rejoicer - Energy Dreams (LP)


Label: Stones Throw Records – STH2396
Format: LP
Country: US
Released: Aug 31, 2018
Genre: Electronic, Hip Hop
Style: Leftfield

Rejoicer (Yuvi Havkin) is an electronic producer from Tel-Aviv, who splices together funk, hip-hop, breakbeats and jazz. He's helped cultivate Israel’s modern beat movement, and fostered a community of international artists who contribute to his Raw Tapes label. Now signed to Stones Throw, Energy Dreams is his debut on the label. Energy Dreams' name, track titles and visuals — created by Yuvi's Raw Tapes co-founder Guy Glikshtein, aka Jengo — draw on the psychedelia of spiritual jazz, and are inspired by visions Yuvi saw in a series of lucid dreams shortly after recording the album. The radical potential of jazz informs both Yuvi’s philosophy on life and his music, which shares a nonconformist take on the genre with the likes of Thundercat, Hiatus Kaiyote, Badbadnotgood or Flying Lotus. With more than 20 releases to his name under several aliases, Havkin also plays in the band Buttering Trio, and has collaborated with the likes of Mndsgn, Georgia Anne Muldrow, Oh No, among others.

Though it is an almost entirely instrumental album, Energy Dreams is graced by the presence of a number of guest musicians, who help to bring out Rejoicer's beats just that little bit more and contribute to some of the record's high points.
