Matthew K DJ Chart 26th March 2002
1. King Britt Presents Obafunke: Bush Workout (Karma Giraffe)
Yet more proof that King Britt is a fully fledged genius. Collaborating with
African musician Obafunke, the result is a 15 minute voodoo groove.
2. Rednose Distrikt: Nana (Hum Hum)
Coming through Rushour this slow motion house track features some awesome
Rhodes action resulting in one of the funkiest tracks in ages.
3. Org: Organic Language (Revirth)
This has probably been floating about for a while but those Japanese 12's
are so hard to track down, I've only just discovered it. Immense production
with broken beats, double bass AND a Calm mix on the flip. AWESOME.
4.Susumu Yokota: Could Heaven Ever Be Like This - Bugz In The Attic Mix
Watch out for Bugz In The Attic this year as they are on a serious roll at
the moment. This is perhaps their best remix yet with an equally exciting
Kyoto Jazz Massive mix on the flip.
5. Jazzanova: Days To Come - Ian O'Brien Mix (CDr)
Mr. O'Brien has now moved to Glasgow, and this is a forthcoming remix from
the much hailed Jazzanova album.
6. Various: Music & Movement Vol 1 (Climate)
Double CD of utterly stunning music, with countless Japanese nuggets finally
getting a release over here. Compiled by Nik Weston, this is the perfect
indicator of where music is just now. With an 8 track vinyl sampler to
follow, this is comiplation of the year so far.
7. Kaos: The Renegades EP (Compost)
The greatest label in the world continue to astound with a gorgeous
downtempo 4 track EP.
8. Nina Simone: See Line Woman - MAW Mix (Verve)
First vinyl release of track from forthcoming Verve remix album. Masters at
Work do their finest on this Nina Simone classic.
9. Suv: Do You Remember (Full Cycle)
Drum' n 'bass is back and its releases like this that are the reason why.
Brilliant latin instrumentation fused with outrageous beats to devastating
10. Ayro: Drink / Let This (Omoa)
Second release from this exciting new Detroit label. Watch out Jazzanova,
these guys are serious contendors with their broken beat productions.
11. Phil Ranelin: Remixes (Hefty)
Very exciting remix album of this early 70's spiritual jazzer. With the
likes of Kirk Degiorgio on remix duties, this is one for the Cinematic
12. Ras: Rhythmic Altered State (Best Seven)
Forthcoming on this Sonar Kollktiv offshoot, this CDr shows yet another
genius talent from the Jazzanova family.
13. Plej: Sampler CD 2000 (CDr)
These guys are going to be massive. Following the release of their mega rare
debut 12" (does anyone actually own a copy) they follow it up with a taster
of their future releases. These guys need to be signed.
14. Zero 7: Distractions - Bugz In The Attic Mix (Ultimate Dillema)
More Bugz remix buisness. Sounding like no one else around, this is a
15. Joseph Malik: Take It All In & Check It All Out (Compost)
Album due soon and if this is anything to go by it will be genius.
16. Massive Attack & Mos Def: I Against I (Melankolic)
There back and this shows them at their finest. Their most hip hop
production in 10 years, this is an awesome record with the mighty Mos Def.
17. Aromabar: All I Want (Infracom)
Those Europeans give the London crew a run for their money when it comes to
dreamy 2 step. This is wicked.
18. Various: Disco Not Disco 2 (Strut)
Revisiting those 1980's moments again, this is a worthy follow up to last
years excellent first volume. Includes the mega rare dub mix of Eddy Grant's
'Timewarp' along with other forgotten classics.
19. Citrona.net: Vitamin C (White)
Again from the States, this lovely double vinyl gives us a some subtle jazz
influences over an old style Kruder and Dorfmeister production. Very nice
20. Block 16: Morning Sun Remixed (Nuphonic)
The original Block 16 album was arguably the finest long player in
Nuphonic's catalogue and this remix album is full of gems. From Dubtribe
taking on the Bim Sherman track to Attica Blues highly underrated Charlie
Dark reworking the Jon Lucien track, this is very exciting.
21. The Tarantulas: Different World Now (Tru Method)
Brilliant triple vinyl showing further developements in the broken beat / nu
jazz sound. Watch out for this - its very special.
22. Us3: Get Out Remixes (Universal Jazz)
2 remixes, both brilliant. Truby Trio do the big bassline buisness, while
Afronaught give us a broken beat monster.
23. Baby Mammoth: Frozen (Pork)
These guys never fail to impress with their excellent productions and this
is yet another example of mid tempo groove mastery.
24. Su Paka Pooh: Sunny Side Garden (Disorient)
Following on from their amazing cover of the Art Ensemble of Chicago, here
we have a full length album from these amazing Japanese producers.
25. Nu Spirit Helsinki: Album Promo (CDr)
Only 100 in circulation and forthcoming on Guidance, this is already going
to be one of the years best albums and we are only in January. Watch out for
26. Fenomenon: Visjon Nord EP (Nuphonic)
One of Nuphonic's brightest hopes give us their second EP after a long wait.
Its worth it though with a varied selection ranging from the jazzy downtempo
grooves, bossa beats and a remix from Compost's Butti 49.
27. 4 Hero: Hold It Down - Teebone & The Exemen Mixes (Talkin Loud)
The remixes keep coming with some amazing sub bass 2 step buisness.
28. Victer Duplaix: Sensuality (K7)
Following on from the blinding DJ Kicks compilation here is yet more
evidence of Victer's stunning future music.
29. The Shiba Experiment: Hanadokei EP (Bambola)
Fantastic future jazz house from Japan. With 3 excellent tracks on offer,
the forthcoming compilation on Bambola should be something special.
