Jazzanova – Dance The Dance (Atjazz Remix) (Sonar Kollektiv)

Among the very rare compositions speakin’ of which superlatives are missin’ as far as I’m humbly concerned. By the likes of Berlin-based collective of DJ’s/producers Jazzanova who, for almost 20 years now, have established their reputation while putting out some of the most fascinating futuristic jams one can think of. Some would speak about Nu-Jazz, others about Future Jazz, when not Broken Beat, but who cares at the end? Written by group member Claas Brieler (who happened to be our correspondent by the time I was in charge of the edition of French mag Coda), one of the highlights of the 2002 released ‘In Between’ album on Jazzanova/Compost Records, with Tampa-based drummer/percussionist/singer Doug Hammond vibrantly givin’ all their dimension to its uplifting lyrics on an atmospheric cinematic jazzy feel.
A jam that would receive the remix treatment courtesy of Atjazz 9 years later as a part of the ‘Upside Down’ album on Sonar Kollektiv, with the latter expanding its futuristic feel in an incredible blend of fragments of Classical, Jazz, cinematic, and House vibes over a devastating funky bassline somehow reminding of Roy Ayers‘s ‘Run, Run, Run’.
