Description of Kidboy Disparate EP

Kidboy is an upcoming producer and versatile musician based in Granada who is always searching for a balance between organic and electronic sounds. On his debut EP he teams up with vocalists such as Ohmega Watts, BluRum13 and Julio Cesar Rodriguez and a bunch of excellent jazz musicians. Bored by too many monotonous releases out there Kidboy wanted to present a diverse EP ? with percussive Broken Beats, heavy basslines sounds and Latin instrumentation on the one hand and very mellow and jazzy Hip Hop tracks on the other!

The EP starts off with Yo Me Voy De Aqui a progressive dj-tune filled with organic latin samples and an enormous sub bassline ? one truly for the dancefloor! Also on the latin tip, Chang?? De Manteca features cuban singer Julio Cesar Rodriguez on vocals and percussion, Cesar's Salad pianist Jo Junghanss on keys and Andrew Linch on sax on top of an energetic Broken Beat.

Eventually Kidboy takes you back into the 90's ? the golden era of Hip Hop ? with organic beats, jazz driven instrumentation and sophisticated rapping. The Culture features Ohmega Watts, a virtuoso rapper from the States who has released on Ubiquity and already worked with well-known acts such as Quantic, The Bamboos or Breakestra. A Moment To Think presents BluRum13, known for his project One Self with DJ Vadim and Yarah Bravo, who came to Granada to collaborate with Kidboy.

Artist:Dusty
Title:Keep It Raw Remix
Label:Jazz&Milk
Dusty's Keep It Raw EP gets an amazing remix treatment by some of the good names out there. We believe that Solo Moderna took the title seriously when doing his remix for Loco Para La Pista - this is something crazy for the dancefloor and it absolutely works! Medicine man Romanowski from San Francisco collected special herbs on Voodoo Island to brew his great remix of the track called Voodoo. Watch TV, the man from Spain turns the the jazz driven Tap Tap into a smashing and progressive piece that is just waiting to be played out loud! Last but not least the guys from Vono Box are keeping it raw, adding the right dose of phat beats and effects to the title track. Once again, this record bridges the gap between melodic jazz grooves and clubby productions!
Artist:Bad Jazz Troupe
Title:Looking For Jupiter
Label:Jazz&Milk
You could probably live without bad Jazz, but you don't want to miss the Bad Jazz Troupe! Disregarding any kind of mindless rule - musical or otherwise - this reckless band revamp traditional rhythms and styles with modern production techniques. The Bad Jazz Troupe bring together raw Afrobeat, Jazz and Funk elements with the latest achievements of the electronic revolution in the world of music. The result sounds fresh and original and yet reminds one of those days when Jazz was still something unruly, naughty and rebellious.

The initiators of the project are two "bad" boys in otherwise quiet and peaceful Munich, Germany. Jerker Kluge, much sought-after bassist and composer (The Boogoos, The Hi-Fly Orchestra, Cesar's Salad, Radio Utopia), provides an invaluable musical basis with selected players of the local Jazz and Funk scene. Their organic sound is infused with energetic beats and hypnotic loops by DJ, producer and labelhead Dusty (Jazz & Milk). In 2009 he created a dancefloor hit by remixing the Afro-Funk of The Boogoos. Jerker and Dusty decided that they will continue acting in collusion and so they founded the Bad Jazz Troupe.

In the band's live performances highly skilled and creative musicians merge sophisticated arrangements with brilliant improvisations on top of Dusty's inimitable percussive beats. Purists also get a chance to experience this sound at thome: on the A side of the vinyl EP they will find an electroacoustic fusion of musicians and producer and on the B side the original studio recordings of the band.
