2021 Reissue of "Mutations" the second work of The Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble from 2009. Not reissued since 2012 The Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble now finally makes all sold out releases available again on all formats.

The series of reissues starts with their genre-determining second output "Mutations". An act combining profound musical sensibilities, deeply emotional harmonies and an acute ear for genre inter-breeding, The Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble placed itself and the confluent of dusty, gritty jazz and low-end doom-laden drones, and came up with a sound which is at the same time warm and dark, brooding and misty, cinematic and dynamic. The ensemble's music - mournful, mercurial and thoroughly spooked - has the lingering impact of the silent movies (Metropolis, Nosferatu) that served as their initial inspiration.

The production is that much more spooky, rich, and atmospheric, and the song structure that much more purposeful and realized. It seems they have struck a perfect symmetry in the studio as a group, feeding off one another and performing cohesively. There is not a wasted moment to be heard. Mutations will slide its greasy fingers up your spine and linger there until you like it. (Pop Matters).

The Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble takes dub, jazz and electronica into new areas of shadowy cinematic enchantment (Rock-a-Rolla). The 8 pieces (40 minutes) of "Mutations" are the perfect connecting link between the ensemble's s/t debut album from 2006 and their second full length "Here Be Dragons" (2009).
