Composer, producer and performer JEF STOTT has been deftly navigating the realms of world fusion music for over a decade, where he has consistently been at the forefront of the International Global Bass movement. He released his 10th full length studio production ARCANA in April 2012 on Six Degrees records. His sound is a conscious inspired blend of the highly articulated electronica compositions fused with the mystery and depth of an inner ethnography.
Jef is a highly accomplished lifelong multi-instrumentalist, adding a live performance element to his live shows with Arabic string and percussion instruments (oud, saz, santoor, daff, riqq etc), guitars, bass and has lead several live ensembles on stage. As a trained anthropologist, he has made an in depth academic study of the instruments of the Middle East with master teachers including Hamza el Din, Omar Faruk Tekbilek among others. Jef often works and performs with master musicians and dancers from the Middle East, Northern Africa, the Balkans and India as well as top shelf fusion artists from the West Coast.
