Weekly Bits 16/2009

My favourite free track this week comes from Greymatter, who reworked Azymuth‘s Carambola. The track was remixed by Mark Pritchard and Roc Hunter back in the year 2000 and this new version brings back some memories.

Jonny Miller was so kind to send me a copy of the latest Jus’Listen digital release. I had no time to review it, but can still recommend giving it a try. It features two tracks from Daco and Chimpo, the latter being a favourite!

For the last 10 years, Mark “Snowboy” Cotgrove has been working on a book about the Jazz Dance scene in the UK. On 300 pages, From Jazz Funk & Fusion to Acid Jazz features many interviews, photos and other documents from the seventies to the mid-nineties. The book is out now!

There are two more bits from the previous week I don’t want to leave unmentioned. Remix Magazine did an interview with Harmonic 313‘s Mark Pritchard, focusing on more techy things like the production process of the album When Machines Exceed Human Intelligence. Should be an interesting read for all you producers out there! Another interview comes from Evil Monito Magazine, who had the chance to speak to legendary DJ Bob Jones.
