Move On (feat Capitol A - 4/4 refix) - (5:08) 125 BPM
The Soul - (5:09) 120 BPM
Jazzy Sport is a great name for a label, no? Is it a euphemism for something a bit rude or, if not, what exactly is a jazzy sport? Anyway, here we have Brisa who delivers the philosophical "Move On" the re-fix of which does sound like a warped record. The original though, is a positive slice of infectious breaky hip-house. The digital flipside is a stylistic flipside too: "The Soul" being a raw, vintage sounding rare groove er, groover. Who knew?
This seven-track collection gathers together the vinyl-only cuts from Georg Levin's 2010 album Everything Must Change, adding various alternate versions and instrumentals. The title track is the former Sonar Kollektiv mainstay's best track since "When I'm With You", his impeccable 2000 debut. It has just the right mix of heartfelt soul, electro-funk swing and smooth dancefloor bump. It's presented here in both vocal and instrumental versions, with the former standing out. Stevie Wonder cover "That Girl" is good fun, too, especially the Dub Mix, which throws in some sprightly house-not-house drums and killer synth bass hooks for a more floor friendly vibe. The EP closes with vocal and instrumental versions of the ultra-smooth "I Need To Understand".
Pound for pound, dollar for dollar, euro for euro, yen for yen - whatever currency tickles your tastebuds, this collection from Tokyo's most creative electronica stable guarantees stimulation. Saturated in new-beat, hip-hop, jazz and wholesome experimentalism, this 16-track set covers a beautifully broad ground with highlights flying in from every angle. From the horror film staccato strings of "Money" to the lush, lazy west coast beatsmithery of "Word Up PSS" to the frenetic shuffle bump groove of "Space Language", you'll be pounding this out of the nearest system for years to come.
