The Remixes 1997-2000

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Michael Endelman
Oftentimes, a remix collection provides a crystal-clear window into a producer's artistic essence. Such is the case with The Remixes 1997-2000 from German DJ/production team Jazzanova. Their rerubs of arty drum-'n'-bass group 4 Hero, acid jazz act Incognito, and Japanese beatmeisters United Future Organization reveal a cosmopolitan style that is more about cool-headed manipulations of rhythm and tone than any sort of electronic trickery. Like fellow world travelers Masters at Work and Thievery Corporation, Jazzanova draw heavily from jazz and pan-Latin styles. And though they lace the music with clave rhythms, bossa nova sway, and American swing, Jazzanova's remixes...

Oftentimes, a remix collection provides a crystal-clear window into a producer's artistic essence. Such is the case with The Remixes 1997-2000 from German DJ/production team Jazzanova. Their rerubs of arty drum-'n'-bass group 4 Hero, acid jazz act Incognito, and Japanese beatmeisters United Future Organization reveal a cosmopolitan style that is more about cool-headed manipulations of rhythm and tone than any sort of electronic trickery. Like fellow world travelers Masters at Work and Thievery Corporation, Jazzanova draw heavily from jazz and pan-Latin styles. And though they lace the music with clave rhythms, bossa nova sway, and American swing, Jazzanova's remixes never attempt to duplicate any of the above styles. House music, trip-hop, and drum 'n' bass are also part of their sound, but the hyperdetailed drum programming rearranges those rhythm patterns into organic explorations of syncopated funk that, amazingly, never seems to repeat themselves. Above all, Jazzanova embrace a warm and luscious sound that soothes your nerves, while the drumbeats keep the body in motion. Essential listening for anyone who finds techno too clinical, house too monotonous, and trip-hop too languid.
All Music Guide - Rob Theakston
Berlin-based collective Jazzanova has set the standard for production in the electronic jazz world. And this double CD/five-record set is a testament to that. Spanning only three years, the group has assembled their entire remix output onto a disc that is utterly indispensable for those who appreciate their brand of innovative soul. The discs assemble original workings from diverse artists such as 4 Hero, Incognito, and Azymuth, and morph them into well-produced bossa beat jazz workouts without forsaking the original intent of the composition; a refreshing concept in a world of overly produced remixes that ignore integrity and strive for pretentiousness. These principles are no more evident than on the remix of Har-You Percussion Group's "Welcome to the Party." Originally a composition that appeared on Ubiquity's outstanding New Latinares compilation, Jazzanova turns this honest, simple piece into an extended workout, complete with a shimmering piano breakdown that would have the snootiest of jazz purists bobbing their heads and shaking their hips. Serving not only as a must-have collection for followers of the group, but also as a primer for people unfamiliar with their sound, this remix compilation is absolutely essential.
