Info: Here comes the first 12” of Intuit´s new album “Intuit”! Welcome to the wonder of Planet Birth, with this first single accompanying the fabulous and high acclaiming debut album! The first remix is by Xantoné Blacq (Vinyl Junkies). We are very happy that 29 year old newcomer (“Searching For The Sun”) Xantoné from London found time beside producing his first solo album, to contribute some deep jazz funk with a little disco flavor to his version of “Planet Birth”. He added more seventies synthesized sounds to the original afro jazz version & of course Xantoné did not pass on the unique lyrics by Andy Bey, how could he!“Bubblin´ Jam” happens just like that, jammin´ with Ray Obiedo on the guitar, and Doug Carn drops over for a piano solo. That Franck and his baritone also turn up at the studio – nobody could have known. The result´s this fine journey into the world of funk & jazz harmonies. Toshio Matsuura needs no introduction. He´s been a founding members of U.F.O., and also co-founder of Brownswood Studios with U.F.O. and Gilles Peterson! With „Western Sunrise“, Toshio creates an easy flowing bossa, with slight percussion as the balance point. He also set value to the vocals of Andy Bey (of course!!) The track lets everything end in harmony: From the Black Forest (Germany) to London, London to Japan, back to Germany – what a journey into sound!
