UVVU short for UltraViolet Voltage Unit is "...head music for the Matrix generation" UVVU is music that unites jazzy funk grooves and world elements with ambient sound effects forming a richly layered "sound painting" Malcom Black who is also an artist in the conventional sense, painting vivid abstracts, transfers his vision of the world into the studio applying many of the same layering techniques to the audio realm. The music is transforming, taking you away into distant lands and past lives.
UVVU was formed in 1999 by producer/engineer, bass player Malcom Black and jazz pianist Americo Carrasco after jamming at an art opening. After the release of their CD 'Ultraviolet Voltage Unit' Americo left the project to pursue new projects in the outer galaxies of the urban zones.. Malcom contines to produce featuring various artists.
World music, jazz, blues, funk, love songs without lyrics, exotic sounds, ethnic instruments, melodic and tribal percussion, strange noises, nature, industrial noise and machines all have their place in our groovy ultraviolet world.
