Kira Neris

nu-jazz // downtempo

At 11 years old, Hervé Poudoulec begins hearing and feeling music over the radio. His mind collects fragments and wonders what to do; pondering from Rock to House, Dance and Jazz; amassing over 4000 samples before experiencing The Cinematic Orchestra’s ‘Motion‘ – helping to align hidden vibrations. Kira Neris graciously strides from downtempo and jazzy affairs to voluptuous dance vibes with an earnest underlining.

Marvelous samples enriched in soulful harmonies.

    Wow, what amazing find! For some reason, I’m feeling a “Quantic meets St. Germain in a jazz lounge” vibe from these tracks…

    hey Kyle, I really enjoy your picks for aurgasm. Your finds are amazing! Thank you for Kira Neris… it’s excellent.

  3. Syven :

    Enjoyed learning about Hervé Poudoulec. Spontaneous self-expression is something I can readily identify with, there is a real calming serenity about this guy’s music and so it is very much in tune with what I think of jazz – which I expect to have an air of spontaneity rather than fixed arrangement.
    I like that attitude about Jazz, that Miles Davis attitude of “I will play it first and tell you what it is later”.

    Simply…….magnificent. I am trembling lightly.

  5. John H :

  6. Sirsparrow :

    I really loved this artist. I even went out and got the rest of their album. Really loving it. Reminds me a lot of Lemon Jelly! and the Avalanches.

  7. Rob :

    Heard it…bought it. Thanks for all the great tunes.

  8. Kyle :

    Quantic meets St. Germain.. that’s a great combo. I can definitely hear Lemon Jelly with the Avalanches too. I’m amazed this is Hervé’s first musical outing, and reading about him, his method of creation/inspiration, has been interesting as well.

    I’m glad you’re enjoying this.. cheers

  9. Alex :

    What a sound! Very lovely rithm.Congratulations!

  10. Alan :

    Just lovely music. I feel like I’m sitting in a cafe in Paris.

  11. Drizzo :

    First track is great, though the second is not bad, it’s a bit difficult to exclude the Bobby Hebb sample without hearing the original in your head.

  12. Haizee :

    Beautiful stuff. Reminds me of Koop. Thanks for the magic Aurgasm…

    I´ve enjoyed this very much until I found that it´s in fact Lonely Woman from Horace Silver in disquise…
