Editorial Reviews

Ancient Lights is the debut album from Uniting of Opposites, the new musical venture from Tim Liken, Clem Alford and Ben Hazleton, bringing to life a melting pot of cultures and inspiration; using new technology as an opportunity to explore and merge aspects of jazz, electronica and traditional Indian musical styles. The band was established when, within the myriad forms of jazz, Hazleton met Alford and begun studying the classical Indian tradition in order to open [his] ears to new melodic and rhythmic possibilities. As a lover of all types and styles of music, Likens involvement fused together their collective musical journeys, creating Uniting of Opposites. Coming from a DJ/producer background, Tim Liken started making music in 1995, setting up one of the UKs original garage labels, Ice Cream Records, later spawning the monikers Double 99 and Tim Deluxe. Clem Alfords musical journey began when he purchased a sitar and a Jayasri Banerjee record before hitch-hiking to India in 1968 to be taught sitar by Pandit Sachindra Nath Saha (Banerjees father). Over the past five decades Alford has recorded for EMI and collaborated with western musicians and pop groups to film composers, including Amancio DSilva, John Williams, John Mayer, John Dankworth and Hemmant Kunar. Having been named Young Jazz Musician of the Year in 2003, Ben Hazleton is predominantly a jazz double bass player and has played with many of the British Jazz greats, performing regularly with The Tony Kofi Quartet and The Jonathan Gee Quartet. Named after the Ancient Lights English property law, that gives home owners the right to receive natural light, the LP brings together creative musical forces, colliding to continuously redefine the music itself and express a fluidity thats found at the heart of Uniting of Opposites ethos.
