martin corey Bowed double bass, electric guitar, glockenspiel, a woman singing an Indian-style devotional song, strings, bagpipes? , a free-jazz saxophone solo and that's just the intro. Certainly the craziest thing you'll have heard in a long while. Lyrical and well up for a bout or two of furious head-banging, Dolphy Kick Bebop are difficult to pigeonhole. Their brand of mayhem is accessible and enjoyable, but impossible to dismiss as trivial or frivolous. It's as wild and edgy as they come. Mighty! Favorite track: B2 - Buddleja II.

Lars Gotrich With a name like that, I half-expected some big-band spy-jazz a la Cowboy Bebop. In an alternate universe, China's Dolphy Kick Bebop soundtracks those space-pirate rascals with 420-friendly free-jazz and sax-squealing drone-doom. Favorite track: B3 - The Ostrich and Another Woman with Anemia.

pooloflight Intense and very organic mix of progressive rock, drone, free-jazz and psychedelia straight out from China. Was very surprised to hear Kyuss- inspired stoner rock elements as well. So much commitment and devotion on this record! Marvelous artwork and design. Favorite track: A2 - Buddleja I.
On the night When I considered the essence of the God I became aware of an image: I lay in a dark depth An old man stood before me He looked like one of the old prophets Suddenly a door opens on the right Onto a garden full of bright sunshine (*From The Red Book by Carl Jung) On the following night I was led to a second scene Slightly I, sensed the path Flowing out on me The door closed behind No one’s arrived Yet I was glad And I am glad
Ain’t no use for my juice


▼WV044: Dolphy Kick Bebop - Briefvisit

Founded in 2014, with only a few cult live shows, Hangzhou based free psychedelic project Dolphy Kick Bebop 海豚踢 has never stopped exploring the edge of avant-garde music. After a silence of two years, Dolphy Kick Bebop 海豚踢 is back with their latest full-length album "Briefvisit" on WV Sorcerer Productions. Comparing to their highly appreciated first EP "Smoke a Haiku Cigarette" out on Space Fruity Records in 2018, we can find more drone, free jazz and improvisation elements in "Briefvisit". Influences also include African jazz roots, tribal percussion, Japanese free improvisation / noise sound, and of course the 60-70s prog rock. The raw guitar fuzz, the double bass and saxophone echo each other, with various acoustic instruments improvisation part, this album speaks to the mountain winds in humid Southern China and to the flaming fires that burst.

組建於2014年,有着為數不多但是直擊內心的燥熱現場演出,杭州前衛迷幻搖滾樂隊Dolphy Kick Bebop海豚踢一直沒有停止他們在前衛音樂邊緣的錯位探索。經過成員變動和精心的準備,時隔兩年,Dolphy Kick Bebop海豚踢在WV Sorcerer巫唱片帶來了他們的最新全長專輯《Briefvisit》。和上一張在北京Space Fruity Records廠牌發行的飽受好評的EP《Smoke a Haiku Cigarette》相比,這張專輯加入了更多了長音、自由爵士和即興元素,同時也保留了豐富的吉他與貝斯段落,我們可以聽到非洲根源爵士樂與部落式的打擊樂、日系自由即興的隱忍與瘋狂,當然還有六七十年代迷幻搖滾樂的厚重影響。粗礪的吉他失真、跳躍的原聲低音貝斯和薩克斯演奏交相呼應,加上各類原聲樂器的即興段落,這是一張炙熱豐富的現場專輯。從潮濕南方的山間微風到崩裂燃燒的熊熊火焰,這也是一張需要完整聆聽的概念專輯,從霧氣瀰漫的山野深淵邁入明亮刺眼的光芒之門。

推薦給The Plastic People of the Universe、高柳昌行、Pärson Sound和Albert Ayler的樂迷,一起體驗知覺短路。

“The elusive psychedelic improvisational outfit Dolphy Kick Bebop, out of Hangzhou, return with their latest journey into the abyss with Briefvisit, out on WV Sorcerer Productions. There’s a mystical quality to the way the band’s music unfurls - as elements of Krautrock, free jazz, and prog rock simmer in a haze of sun-baked psychedelia - leading you down a path that's difficult to turn back from. Sprawling and abrasive in its musicality, lucid and seductive in its aura, it engulfs and spits you out anew.”
- LiveChinaMusic

"A tacit understanding between band members, a complete ritual."

“只看Dolphy Kick Bebop這個名字,還以為《Briefvisit》大約是張節奏復雜的爵士唱片,事實上他們相當迷幻,有時候也很重,一些Drone甚至Stoner蕩出混沌的力道,但仍然擁有爵士的感覺,並超越了技術的局限,只能說海豚踢被強有力的直覺驅動著,在那些漫長的演奏裏,曾經在德式或者日式迷幻搖滾中令人出神的原始感隱隱浮現,彌漫著南方的神秘潮氣。”
- 陳郁
