MetaQuorum

Founded in March 2014 by Dmitry Ermakov, MetaQuorum brings together seasoned musicians with a passion for their craft. Refusing to be pigeonholed into any one genre, MetaQuorum melds a variety of styles from Prog through Funk to Electronic Jazz Fusion to create unforgettable music landscapes. The result?
"After listening all the way through, I can’t wait to start again. It’s a dynamite record full of refreshing sounds, melodies, and textures. If you’re into outsidethe-box instrumental music with a heavy dose of futuristic improvisation and a mind-melting sound, Witchcraft Jazz is for you."

Album: WITCHCRAFT JAZZ (2018)
Witchcraft Jazz is MetaQuorum's second studio album. MetaQuorum's unique Meld style of Progressive Music was developed further here using a range of techniques combining score with improvisation and state of the art recording and mastering techniques. The line-up has also been expanded (see About the Artist). The album is enjoying an enthusiastic reception: international radio play and reviews, including in regional North-East UK: NARC Magazine:
“It’s not simply this melting pot of cultures that gives MetaQuorum their inventive sound though; their music is a riot of styles – from prog, funk, jazz, rock and electronica – and diverse influences – from Mozart to Zappa, quantum physics and the wild open landscapes of the North Pennines – all coming together in a form Dmitry likes to call Meld." By Claire Dupree, February 22, 2018, NARC. Magazine. Full interview @

The Crack Magazine:
"This bunch are based in the north-east but have a truly international feel and are led by Dmitry Ermakov, a Russian born composer and keyboardist. They take great delight in seeking out the boundaries of jazz, electronica, funk and prog and then gleefully mangling them, resulting in a release that sounds like it should be soundtracking a cool crime drama that is being broadcast on one of the moons of Saturn. It’s discordant, occasionally daffy but always lands on the right side of interesting." http://www.thecrackmagazine.com/view-editorial/5230 and large international print magazines such as Progression Magazine and Fireworks Magazine (coming in June). Here are more snippets from the web reviews so far:
“After listening all the way through, I can’t wait to start again. It’s a dynamite record full of refreshing sounds, melodies, and textures. If you’re into outsidethe-box instrumental music with a heavy dose of futuristic improvisation and a mind-melting sound, Witchcraft Jazz is for you.” March 4 2018 @
https://thepopbreak.com/2018/04/10/review/ “This Witchcraft Jazz album of MetaQuorum is an hour of amazingly crafted tunes in ever changing positive cheer up moods and very addictive. If you think this is not your music, I recommend to listen anyway right now. And if you like Snarky Puppy then I recommend you to listen too! This album is a real must in the jazz rock genre. Highly recommended.” Full review @

"What the hell is this? I grew up listening to Weather Report, Al di Meola, Earth Wind and Fire, Caldera, Chick Corea, Jeff Lorber, all the great jazz, funk, artists.
Wow, this music puts a smile on my face. It sounds familiar but not quite. It is absolutely brilliant. Seriously mind blowing. It's witchcraft!"
