Thrilled by various DJs he had seen on TV, Long Arm from Russia – who had played the piano until then – started collecting records together with a friend of his and developed a passion for jazz. Writing songs, listening to music and playing in various bands, it’s his love for music that has defined his whole life. Now, he has arrived at a mixture of HipHop, electronica, jazz and downbeat. Long Arm has found a musical home on Project: Mooncircle, and since he perfectly fits into the label’s roster, he’s now released his debut: The Branches. The press releases agreed: »The Branches album is a reflection of a world, where human feelings and natural powers are bound together. Everything is correlated in this world«. And there’s absolutely nothing else to add, really. Long Arm has created an album almost impossible to beat in its homogeneity. Thoughtful, sometimes melancholy, instrumental HipHop, humming drums, dreamy melodies and and mystical vocal samples. With Key Door, the album reaches its peak tempo-wise and even brings up a few memories of Hidden Orchestra. The only guest to appear on the record is Teknical Development of Obba Supa in the title track. Long Arm – more of this, please!
