Vinyl of the Week: Son of Nyx

I would like to share my other passion with you - MUSIC! Each Friday I will share with you an album I am currently enjoying. Might be an old classic or a brand new drop... This week...⁠

Kicking off today, I am keen to share with you 'Son of Nyx' by Tamil Rogeon who is a Melbourne-based violist, violinist, and orchestral composer. This is his first full-length release in three years, which came out just last month.⁠

Named after the Greek God of satire, Momus, 'Son Of Nyx' is an emotional six-track prism of exploratory modal jazz, afro-Latin percussion and boundless string-led composition, featuring some of my favourite and most exciting musicians working in Melbourne today. ⁠

I have been observing Tamil's journey for many years evolving from violinist with the Hip Hop outfit True Live, later forming the jazz-influenced orchestral electronic group, The RAah Project, exploring electronic jazzy sounds with trio Harvey Sutherland and also the outfit Bermuda. ⁠

With Son of Nyx, Rogeon has returned to where it all started for him: “After studying jazz for ten years and then leaving it for various crossover projects, it seemed an important thing to do. I felt it was the right time in my life to put out a record like this.”⁠

He is launching the album along with many special guests tonight at The Night Cat on Johnston Street, Fitzroy.
