Fans of this Parisian nu-disco chap, a member of Venice Beach no less, might be in for a shock with this new release. With a swift change of direction, "Jazz Soul Scent" (the clue's in the title) sees DJ Moar deliver five tunes of authentic jazzy soul and RnB. With lazy late '90s beats (think Fugees or Erykah Badu) gently guiding some choice neo-soul and accomplished vocals from Sarsha Simone, this is a different but credible departure for Moar.
A special dedication to his formative days praying at the good church of hip-hop, cutting and pasting in Sunday school, Venice Beach member Moar gets down and does the caterpillar. An eclectic ensemble of loops and compositions, this lick shots from Senor Coconut to Bambaataa and back again with its frenetic arrangement of swinging drums, cheeky samples and crafty editing. Highlights include the bongo and fuzz box fusion of "2 vs 2" and low-swung bass shuffle and swing of "Bump On". Moar please!
