Mix CD "Southport Weekender vol.7 by Jazzanova & Mr. Scruff

英国はサウスポートで開催されている大型フェス"Southport Weekender"の連動企画Mix CD第7弾。今回はJazzanovaとMr. Scruffという人選なのですが、そのMr. Scruffサイドの国内盤レヴューを担当しましたのでご紹介w
Mr. ScruffというとNinja Tuneでのブレークビーツ製造家という印象が強いかもしれませんが、実はというかやはり英国人のDJらしくModern Soulのハード・コレクターでありまして本作はその愛好家っぷりが遺憾なく発揮されたSoulfulな内容となっています。45 Onlyのmost wanted track ! Momie-OからGloria Scottまで、相当好きなんですよ彼。またこの手の音源にありがちな旧譜オンリーな選曲ではなく、Theo ParrishやCrue-l Grand Orchestraといった現在進行形の音も違和感なくすべりこませています。Hip Hopのmix cd等に見受けられるquickでサクサク展開していく構成ではありませんが、じっくり聴ける味わい深い作品となっています。(個人的には彼が作る曲よりも断然好きです。こういう曲作ればいいのにw )。因にJazzanovaとMr. Scruffどちらに軍配が上がったかと言えば圧勝でScruff ! (好みの問題を越えてしまった...頑張れJazzanova)

試聴 (15曲目から)


After a really enjoyable gig at Southport Weekender back in May, I am very excited to announce that myself & Jazzanova have collaborated on the latest Southport Double Mix CD! It is rare that I stick to one type of music for a mix CD or a DJ set, but I have been inspired by so much soul music over the last 25 years that it was a real pleasure to dig into the archive & pull out some of the amazing soul music that has inspired me so much. This mix is my tribute to Southport.
In contrast, Jazzanova serve up a divine deep house & disco platter that represents another side to the event.

Mr. Scruff

2bo4.jpg

Two Banks of Four are Dillip Harris and Robert Gallagher.
One djs on Sunday night and learnt his trade in New York, the other mcees on Saturday night and is still wondering why he never learnt a trade.
They both live in London.They both are involved in various musical projects.
They have both been on walks around the capital to make recordings of trains,the river police,and people shouting.
Neither have now, or at any time, been members of the conservative party.
Both have worn clarks.Only one rides a bike.They both have copies of Doug and Jean Carnes "power and the glory" but only one was given a copy of "black renaissance" (by one of the okino brothers).One shaves his head, the other does not.
Both went to dub basket east to mix the record with the Pheasants.
One eats a good cold noodles for dinner (when atsko is cooking), the other likes to reduce his sauce till ready.
They both have various names and have a record coming out on red egyptian jazz.
Though neither make jazz music, one has a photograph of himself on top of a train in india as the sun is rising.The other may well buy a velour tracksuit from Ridley Road market.


2BO4 are cosmic, junkyard & spiritual jazz !!!
"Shadowlands" is this week's Radio Dig push song.

The Dynamics / The creator has a master plan

The Dynamics / The creator has a master plan

TheDynamics.jpg

The Dynamics was created near the end of 2003, after the release of Steve McQueen, a Patchworks 7 inch. The Dynamics music is a witness to the influence of American soul on Jamaican music. Their unique sound retraces the connections between soul, reggae and dub, mixing old-school flavours and modern production techniques. The result is deep, dynamic and characterized by strong vocals and an effective stage presence.


Patchworks (selection and mixing) :
He produces for various labels (Q-Tape FR, Acid Jazz UK and Still Music US). Patchworks is currently recognized as one of the more prolific and esteemed French creators. His productions go from deep house to soul and jazz). By producing the Dynamics sound, he follows an old childhood dream, vocal soul bands and reggae music.

Dapper Ray AKA Mr Day (singer, song writer) :
He is one of the founders of the Lyon today scene. Dapper Ray is probably one of the most highly respected soul and deep house French singers. His Influences, like Curtis Mayfield or Smokey Robinson bring a real soulful flavour to the band. Just like Patchworks, he works with a number of different labels (Rotax FR, Glasgow Udg UK, Guidance US).

Stevie Levi (singer, MC, song writer) :
Originally from Bristol UK, Stevie recently moved to Lyon France to join the Dynamics. His style would be somewhere between Horace Andy, Marvin Gaye and U Roy, a wide range of influences. He brings to the band his original stage presence, warmth, passion and a rarely seen energy !

Mounam (singer, song writer) :
Originally from Cameroon, Mounam is a main figure of the Lyon music scene, with a 10 years evolution through all the Afro-American styles (gospel, soul blues and jazz) in europe. Mounam can often be seen on special featurings for Zora Young US, Patchworks, Colorblind, FR or Slovo UK.

Flab Master Flab (stage effects) :
From Boston US, Flab describes himself as a musical hobo. From working in recording studios for the last 10 years, he brings a great range of influences to the band and a unique technique of effects. On stage, his vintage equipment feeds the Dynamic sound with a proper timeless dub quality.


Love Pharoah... Pharoah's jazz classics reggae cover !
