Compilation of the month
Jazzanova 'The Remixes 2006 - 2016' (Sonar Kollektiv)
German collective Jazzanova are celebrating 20 years of impressive remixes with a three-part compilation series, with each release covering a different period in their career. This final instalment shows where the heads have been over the last decade, with their take on house remixes partiucularly grabbing our attention. Their smooth, silky version of Outlines’ ‘Listen To The Drums’ sounds like early Maya Jane Coles, while their huge-sounding rework of Atjazz’s ‘Parallels’ (feat Dawne B) features guitar licks and dramatic pads. Other highlights include the Balearic-inspired take on Malika Ayane’s ‘Dimentica Domani’ and a remix of Paul Randolph’s ‘Believer’, which evokes a moody Theo Parrish.
