Rising from the rubble of Planet Battagon’s cosmic collision of shimmering improvisation and bass-weight electronics, producer, multi/instrumentalist and veteran drummer, Nathan “Tugg” Curran (Basement Jaxx, Kano, Bryan Ferry) returns with London-based ensemble, Edrix Puzzle’s latest celestial disturbance, ‘Coming Of The Moon Dogs’.

Edrix Puzzle is a relatively new constellation on the starchart of the London jazz firmament. This trio of professional improvisers is led by the drummer/producer Nathan “Tugg” Curran, famous for the grooves he lays down behind the drum set of Basement Jaxx, as well as in the projects Gorgon City and Planet Battagon. His playing in Edrix Puzzle veers towards rolling funk figures, which might have swirled down in the maelstrom of dark currents flowing from Martin Slattery’s woodwinds, if it weren’t for the dynamic double bass lines of Tom Mason, providing a secure anchoring. The Portuguese percussionist Oli Savill sits in, adding a battery of beats from mysterious sources, that together with some warped tape echos make for an alien setting on Edrix Puzzle’s first EP: Rise to Eris.
