Quasimode - The Land Of Freedom : : .

Artist: Quasimode
Title: The Land Of Freedom
Released: Dec. 2007
Format: Unmixed Audio CD
Label: Geneon
Genre: Jazz, Latin, Groovy Club Beats


An amazing second full length set from Quasimode easily one of the most soulful combos working in the current club jazz underground!

Quasimode consists of Yusuke Hirado (Piano), Takahiro "Matzz" Matsuoka (Percussions), Kazuhiro Sunaga (Bass), and Takashi Okutsu (Drums). The sound is based on the authentic jazz which was prevalent in 60s and 70s, and they absorb the groovy club beats as well. This makes it stylish and danceable.

The band coversome of the same territory as their Japanese contemporaries Sleepwalker, an older style of soul jazz played live, mostly with acoustic instrumentation in ways the hearken back to the best older work on labels like Impulse, Strata East, and Black Jazz.

The Land Of Freedom captures on disc the live energy that Quasimode exude when they play in clubs, often to audiences of 2-3 thousand capacity. With such an exploding jazz scene growing in Japan it was clear that Tokyo wasn’t big enough to hold all the talent coming from there. One can only hope this rocking band make it to a club near you soon.

Rodrigo Sánchez - En La Playa Al Sol : : .

Artist: Rodrigo Sánchez
Title: En La Playa Al Sol
Recovery: Dec. 2007
Format: Unmixed Audio CD
Label: Chin Chin
Genre: Lo-Fi, Nu Jazz, Latin


En la playa al sol, an album like a tasty cocktail, which combines contemporary Latin, Jazz, Soul & Lounge styles in the best possible way. Celebrating the lust for life without being trivial. Flavoured with a healthy helping of jazz this album arranges a deep atmosphere of soul and sensuality.

Rodrigo Sanchez (musician & producer), has a passion for electronic instruments, the album sounds neither static nor sterile. A great experience of how eclectic and spirited electronic music should be. In february 2006 his deep house remix of Club des Belugas "Wildcats gotta move" (not included on this album) stayed for 8 weeks in the Top Ten of the German Club Charts with peak position #3.

Nidia Ortiz from the Dominican Republic creates with her incisive and lyrical voice a delightful summer-like Caribbean atmosphere. Brenda Boykin, the jazz lady from California (Bammie nomination 1997 for Best vocalist of the Year / Montreux Jazz Festival Award Winner 2005/ supporting Al Jarreau and Club des Belugas), deliberately decided to collaborate with Rodrigo Sanchez and seduces the audience again with her extraordinary souly-jazzy voice. Rodrigo Sanchez remixes - Bah Samba (vocals Alice Russell) and Sandboy, two respected stars of the Latin-Lounge and Nu-Jazz scene, perfect for this album. You will never have enough of it!

Kira Neris - Behind Closed Doors : : .

Artist: Kira Neris
Title: Behind Closed Doors
Recovery: Dec. 2007
Format: Unmixed Audio CD
Label: Futuristica
Genre: Nu Jazz, Downtempo


My album of the month.

Based in Strasbourg, the man behind the Kira Neris project is a truly unique individual. Motivated by an absolute passion and desire for all things radio and music related from the age of 11, it was inevitable that one day he would produce his own creative masterpiece full of the influences of his formative years. Having explored most genres and styles,from a brief affair with Rock to a longer relationship with House and Dance music, Jazz and Classic Groove are now his regular partners in producing what is without doubt original and captivating music.

Inspired by the character from Star Trek Deep Space 9, he took the name 'Kira Neris' finding that there was a co-relation between his music's thought provoking melancholy and the character's complex personality. He continues to challenge himself by working on a range of diverse musical projects, constantly finding new inspiration in artists like Prefuse 73, Jelinek, Herbert, Theo Parrish, 3 Chairs and Moodymann.

The Cinamatic Orchestra in my head and Llorca & St. Germain in my feet.
Only enjoy it.

01 - Kira Neris - Open Doors
02 - Kira Neris - Through Dimensions
03 - Kira Neris - Scampering
04 - Kira Neris - Theme
05 - Kira Neris - With all his Might
06 - Kira Neris - Un Ete Sans Fin
07 - Kira Neris - Brak Peat
08 - Kira Neris - Sweet Twilight

V.A - Alien Cafe Chloé Says : : .

Artist: V.A
Title: Alien Cafe Chloé Says
Released: Dec. 2007
Format: Unmixed Audio CD
Label: Blue Flame Records
Genre: Lo-Fi, Nu Jazz, Downtempo


The project Alien Café developed from the formation Serendipity, which already has a debut track on the Blue Flame label compilation “Home Service”.
Serendipity is rooted in the experimental duo UFO Walter (Bass, Programming) and Christian Willeczelek (Drums, Programming), who created a musical playground in order to have a basis for a free interaction of all possibilities between bass and drums. Then in accordance with the meaning of the word Serendipity (a “lucky coincidence” or “the gift to find something you never looked for”) the project gained the gentle and clear voice of Nikola Materne (Vocals). Thus the project Alien Café was born.

Luciano - Live Kristal Bucharest : : .

Artist: Luciano (Lucien Nicolet)
Title: Live Kristal Bucharest 27.10.2007 (Selection)
Released: Nov. 2007
Format: Set (Selection)
Label: Live Set
Genre: Minimal, Micro House


Born in a small village in the heart of St Croix, Luciano aka Lucien-N-Luciano spends his first years in Switzerland, which he departs in the summer of 1988 to follow his mothers' roots to Santiago, Chile. Not only the distance in miles, but the distance in music cultures between these two continents intrigues and seduces the twelve year old and soon he starts to play what was going to be his very first instrument and a critical influence in his muiscal career - the spanish Guitar.
Luciano's music is widely appreciated because of its graceful melodies, love for detail and colorful patterns merging into an amazing rhythm one can enjoy at home or in a club. Rhythms rise and fall like a gentile tide of bubbly ocean, big string arrangements spread across vast expanses of air, while a micro burst of sound pop out from under the smooth, texturized grooves.
