At the risk of defying musical category, “It’s About Time” combines electronic music
with different genres. Or is it the other way around? Fishman's debut solo album is where cyber-funk and ambiance
meet with big tunes. The unusual blend of harmonically rich textures
was inspired by rediscovered obsolete electronic equipment, a desire to try
something new and if possible - go beyond.
