The Bruknahm Project represents a new direction for the progressive label of the Knitting Factory. The project is a co-operation between to producers/composers: Saundi Wilson, son of jazz-drummer Philip Wilson and Sebastian 'SibaGiba' Bardin, who has produced for artists like Maceo Parker and Lester Bowie. The more experimental jazz idiom is integrated into their eclectical music, but the duo is also attracted to dance-oriented electronic music, breakbeats and hip hop. Striking is the selection of improvised avant-garde jazz and even samples that have been extracted from composed music. The music is sharply produced with an alternative edge and beautiful, though never dominant, beats of drum and bass.
