Quotes: A world without Compost – UNTHINKABLE! Maybe you the listener will not accept the `Future` word in the title as easier as others or that other word, `Jazz` sits along side it. Open your mind is all that Michael (Reinboth, CEO) is saying – embrace the age that we live in as well as respect the past. Paul Gamblin (DJ & Black&Blue Radio Show) / Just a so extraspheric and brilliant sonic mosaic in tones and tunes: for moments extremely humanoid and ready to be exported to planet X. Crystallic perfect jazz for a film of secret agents and affairs of sensual passion. Helene Ramos Galagarza
Info: The term „Future Jazz” has been overused quite a lot recently and many of the “similar” compilations out there have become complete interchangeable. That is not the case with FSOJ however, now in its 7th edition, which has earned a “top class” reputation worldwide. Michael Reinboth knows all too well, the proliferation of releases in this beloved music genre, and so he consciously avoided big names and selected a unique mixture of new talents and truly underground-acts. The tracks from well-known acts featured on the compilation are all, as in the case of Peter Kruder and The Amalgamation of Soundz exclusive to FSOJ. The compilation features an eclectic mix of musical styles; Deep House, Downbeat, Drum & Bass, Nu-Jazz etc., but it always seems difficult to categorise this sort of music. More important is the blending of different cultures (India, Hungary, UK, USA etc.) and musical backgrounds to be found on this compilation. Many of the tracks featured on this album, were underground-club hits in the past few months; Djs like Rainer Trüby, Jazzanova, Alex Attias, Gilles Peterson, Peter Kruder and LTJ Bukem have included them on their playlists and magazines such as Straight no Chaser gave “strong buy” recommendations for these now limited availability and in some cases no longer available 12 inches.
