When he started his Renegades of Jazz project back in 2010, David Hanke described it as "an attempt to bring jazz back to the dancefloor". In essence, that means fusing live jazz playing - double bass, horns, keys, percussion - with grooves inspired by soul, funk and breakbeat. It's a successful formula, as this second full-length - an all-star affair featuring collaborations with many notable players and producers - more than adeptly proves. Highlights come thick and fast, from the Middle Eastern-tinged exotica of "Why Oh Why" and spiraling, bruk-tinged Diesler hook-up "Rokko Loko", to the skittering Hammond funk of "Little Hurricane" and early Dynamic Syncopation spy-funk thrust of "Chiffre's Henchmen".
