‘Nightfall’ was deliberately created with a looser, live-played feel to it and sits perfectly as an exclusive alongside the instrumental-led electronic sound of MCDE’s fabric mix. It evolved over a couple of years during various jam sessions of Danilo’s, with contributions by jazz artists Peter Schlamb playing vibraphone and piano, and Francesco Geminiani on Buchla synthesizer and saxophone.
The track is also available on double vinyl and as part of the mixed CD compilation for fabric Records.
"I was recording a jazz quartet led by my friend Hermon Mehari, a Kansas City trumpet player, at my old studio in germany in 2018. Peter was playing vibraphone and piano on that session, and in between some of the recordings for Hermon, Peter just jammed along to a sketch of mine which consisted of the raw 808, a baseline from an italian synthesizer, and the piercing lead sound from an Arp Omni keyboard.
Another buddy of mine in Paris, Francesco Geminiani, ended up bringing his Buchla synthesizer to the studio here one afternoon, and we added this as well as some saxophone. I then just combined both sessions, added some more percussions and a bit of guitar to it and then did the final mixdown of the song.
