The Big Sun Authority

Purple Eternity Records, 2021

Album by Big Shit Posse / Released February 13, 2021

In the summer of 2019, after disbanding his previous jazz ensemble to open a new chapter in his artistic work, Aldtie Mann put together a new dynamic group after his intention: Big Shit Posse. The reason, as always, is that something had changed. One could not just go on like this. There was a whole new set of ideas and sketches. The band started to perform their first live shows in the summer of 2019 in bars and clubs across Berlin, performing the newest compositions by Aldtie Mann, which have been refined and revised from show to show. With the use of electronics, implemented sometime in 2020, and special compositions that take place in front of extended loops, Aldtie Mann refined and sharpened the band’s profile and achieved its original sound. One of the most crucial live performances took place on October 29, 2020, where Big Shit Posse performed in its final, revamped lineup, playing the most advanced versions of Mann‘s latest compositions and a reinterpretation of a piece from his former project Club Jazz Debakel, unleashing the band’s massive sonic spectrum and its full dynamic energy.

‘The Big Sun Authority’ is the debut album by the newly introduced band Big Shit Posse, containing edited live recordings from the last live show they performed in 2020. The album is the first step into Big Shit Posse’s evolving body of work, presenting the band’s powerful and energetic live performance first hand.
