About The Speaker

Combining riotous free improvisation and deep groove, UK-based outfit Ill Considered have joined forces with New Soil to release their expansive catalogue of eight vinyl-only albums digitally for the first time.

Comprised of bassist Liran Donin (Led Bib), saxophonist Idris Rahman (Wildflower, Soothsayers) and producer/mixer/drummer Emre Ramazanoglu (David Holmes, Leo Abrahams, Noel Gallagher, Steam Down, Theon Cross, Wildflower, Etienne Daho) Ill Considered are not wasting any time.

Ferociously energetic and relentless productive, the outfit recorded and released nine albums in two years between 2017 and 2019, tearing through an improvised yet fully-formed repertoire in single-take sessions that display a unique versatility and sense of invention.

As saxophonist Idris Rahman explains: “We are trying in real time to shape the music with repetitive hooks, dynamic builds, moments where we diverge into chaos and moments where we hit a climax as if we’d rehearsed it. We’re always looking for those points and listening to each other to feel where we’re going to go next.”

Fusing the dynamism of the UK jazz scene with an improvised punk energy, the band’s sound is not easily pigeonholed.
