NEW SINGLE RELEASE:

MY FAVORITE THINGS

THE FIRST SINGLE OF OUR FORTHCOMING ALBUM “LIVE AT THE EMINENT STUDIOS” IS  RELEASED 27TH OF DECEMBER! THE HEARTFELD SOUND OF MUSIC CLASSIC IN ALL HER BITTERSWEET GLORY.

ALBUM PRIORITIZE

released in 2023 on their own label comes an album that is written, played, mixed and produced by Arthur Flink and Satindra Kalpoe. A studio album in the true sense. Available on vinyl, cd and digital.

ANDRE DADI ON PRIORITIZE: 

‘Trompettist Arthur Flink is geen onbekende in de Rotterdamse jazzscene in het algemeen en de nu jazz scene in het bijzonder. Met zijn bands Monsieur Dubois en State Of Monc oogstte hij tot ver over de landsgrenzen enorm veel bewondering en de kans is bijzonder groot dat dit met zijn nieuwste project FLiNK ook gaat gebeuren. Samen met drummer Satindra Kalpoe (Anouk, Relax, Tasha’s World) en bassist Luciano Poli vermengt hij hiphop en dub met soul en jazz en creëren zij samen dubjazz. Na hun debuut It’s Dangerous (2019) is Prioritize hun tweede album waarop zij hun vier jaar geleden ingeslagen weg verder uitdiepen. Nog steeds varieert hun muziek tussen robuuste, Rotterdamse oerkracht en oogverblindende schoonheid en subtiliteit, waarbij Flink en Kalpoe elkaar tot het maximale weten op te jutten of juist af te remmen. Hierdoor ontstaat een uniek jazzgeluid waar niet mee te spotten valt. Rauw, melancholiek, stevig, hartverwarmend, maar ten alle tijde oprecht.’
