It’s a magical masterpiece. The blend of instruments is spellbinding backed up by a firm solid bass line. Malia’s voice flows from the vinyl with a clearness & pervasive force no listener can fail to follow, which leaves you eagerly awaiting her next delivery.

Sensual, Cool Electropop Jazz On Vinyl LP! Swiss electronic musician Boris Blank, one-half of the legendary techno duo Yello, teams up with Malawi-born jazz singer Malia on this 2014 recording of electronic soul music.

"The production values are, predictably, top-notch; if Blank has learned anything in his decades of music-making, it's how to create atmosphere and there's plenty to spare on Convergence. There's an out-of-time quality to the eleven tracks here, the same mysterious sort of implacable elegance one might find in the heavenly bodies that emerge from the opening sway of 'Celestial Echo' and into 'Embraceable Moon''s fragile skitteriness. It's easy to see why the two artists felt like a collaboration would be a good fit. Malia's vocals have just enough roughness to wear Blank's compositions comfortably and confidently, whether she's wrenching the heart on 'Turner's Ship', themed around Joseph Mallord William Turner's famed 'The Slave Ship', or healing it with the supernatural sultriness of 'Touching Ghosts'. If you're looking for an album packed front-to-back with some of the most stirring electro-jazz compositions you'll find outside of a Twin Peaks soundtrack, or you just can't wait for that next new Yello album, Convergence will be soundtracking your nights and days for some time." - Electronic Beats

"Convergence is brimming with snapshots that are made for eternity. As modern as timeless, this electronic soul music has the potential to make you deeply happy." - Jazz Echo

"Malia and Boris Blank create a surprisingly harmonious work full of sensuality and the subdued elegance of a martini. Their songs tell stories of bondage, disappointment, spirituality, humiliation, lust and love. Their music combines jazz and electronics into a sophisticated conglomerate. A stroke of luck for us, that these two artists, so far apart, found each other for 'Convergence'." - Laut.de

"Convergence is one of the most sensual and elegant albums we have heard in a long time. Its almost timeless aesthetics avoid clichés mostly associated with electronic soul music and seamlessly bring together two artists with a unique approach to their work – but most important of all: it's got soul and sensuality, both in a very elegant and airy way but still has enough artistic weight to carry the promise of becoming a long term companion." - BlankTON
