    'Dialectic Soul', the debut LP from drummer Asher Gamedze is now up for pre-order. 5*, 'Incredible' and 'LP of the Year' reviews are already arriving. Robin D.G. Kelley wrote that "it will render you completely incapacitated for the rest of the day. It's a piece of music that you'll not forget".

    Asher introduces the themes that constitute the album; free drums representing autonomous African motion, the saxophone reflecting deeply & honestly on the violence of colonialism. The teachings of Coltrane, Biko, Makeba, Malcom & others inspire the music's positive manifestation of resistance.

    "Fundamentally, it is about the reclamation of the historical imperative. It is about the dialect of the soul & the spirit while it moves through history. The soul is dialectic. Motion is imperative. We keep moving."
