We recently posted up a preview of our next release which is by Leicester, UK based guitarist Sebastian Buccheri, under his Jazzdefector guise. In ‘Solo’ we have a short album of late night reverb-drenched guitar improvisations that will appeal to fans of Robin Guthrie, Loren Connors or Harold Budd. It’s available now on Whitelabrecs in a very low run of just 50 CDrs.
We released the album to our mailing-list subscribers last weekend and many copies have sold already. At time of writing there are some left – to find out more or to secure your copy, you can click the link below or on the image above to listen.

“Jazzdefector is a Leicestershire based guitarist called Sebastian Buccheri. Sebastian’s most recent work includes an album for Cathedral Transmissions, an EP on our sister label Audio Gourmet and he’s also had a record out on Assembly Field.
His sound is typically reverb-drenched guitar but not necessarily pure drone; instead, Sebastian’s work sees the guitar compositions take centre stage. He has recently begun performing live with artists such as Yellow6 and Cluster and in his album for Whitelabrecs, much of the work is improvised live and fed through a chain of pedals and plugins.
In ‘Solo’, you’ll be struck on the jazzy yet intimate tone of the 12 short pieces which is best enjoyed late at night in solitude. Fripp, Eno and Budd are inevitable influences but Sebastian also enlists Jazz greats Miles Davis and John Coltrane as guitar legend Jimi Hendrix.
He wanted Solo to adopt a loose label of ‘Ambient love songs’, focusing on love as an emotion but without being too specific. This means that individual interpretation can allow it to relate to the listener.“
