Uriel - Under Compulsion


Under Compulsion

Art Edit

Released: 2nd September 2016 | 10 track leftfield/idm album


The Uriel moniker is a pseudonym of Scott E. Hodgson, electronic composer and co-founder of Beau Monde records and was originally used to pioneer the Future Jazz sound. Inspired by Detroit techno's originators statements of jazz as inspiration, Scott sought to create an even more obvious electronic homage to the genres of Sci-fi Jazz and the machine funk of Parliament. The Uriel style evolved as retro blaxploitation soundtracks and easy listening from the late 60's and early 70's came into vogue, by creating original pieces inspired by this era, but always with a modern twist that set them apart. Latin beats and disco soon joined the Uriel style, alongside Scott's love of Miles Davis' and Herbie Hancock's electric fusion period, to complete the picture.

"It's superbly paced, full of highs and lows, light and shade, and it's probably the most exciting and involving listening experience of the year - the musical equivalent of Leon”."
Peter McIntyre, Mix Mag
"Frankly you don't need the film, the album tells the story."
Richard Fraser-Skinner, Staright No Chaser
"Under Compulsion is good enough to restore your faith in the new school of jazz...Chuck out your chintz and reach for the real thing."
Rob Da Bank, Mix Mag
