Review: After a pair of well-received 12" singles on Mad Mats' GAMM imprint, Jazzy Jens pops up on Basic Fingers with a couple of admirably reverential re-edits. The first sees him tackling Mascara's recently re-released, string-laden disco-soul classic "See You In LA", a track featuring early vocals from Luther Vandross. Jens' edit is perfectly pitched, utilizing the repirse outro from a different Mascara track ("Jet Plane Ride") as a thrilling, piano-laden intro. It has "end of night anthem" written all over it. "I Want You", meanwhile, turns another soulful classic into a horn-laden chunk of breezy dancefloor goodness via the addition of some well-judged disco beats.

Review: The latest in a string of excellent GAMM releases, Swedish edit/remix maestro Jazzy Jens has a ball with The Undisputed Truth's progressive early-70s soul classic "Smiling Faces Sometimes" on "Undisputed". Speeding it up a little and adding just the right amount of extra percussion and delay to certain vocal phrases, he keeps the original's vibe nicely in tact whilst also making it a DJ's delight. Backing "Undisputed" is "Guarapera", a nicely arranged romp through some vintage Latin rumba and modest disco beats.
