Quotes: This compilation is a highlight! it has to be in your record collection! The GAP

Info: 1. ”Bird Song” Earthbound Remix (Slow Version): A great rework of the masterpiece ballad “Bird Song” by the Straight Ahead boys Earthbound from Switzerland. Putting the original in a deep off-beat environment, they created a slightly darker and very dense atmosphere for the track. This remix is different to the 108bpm version, which is on the “In The Picture” 12” (JCR 017).
The Underwolves recently did a remix for The Eastenders track “Original Style”, which is out now on Poets Club Records. The remix is also on the “Inside 03 – compilation” Poets Club Rrecords.

Title: Bright Nights (Rima Techno Chimp Dub Mix) / Bright Nights (Rima Fusion Mix) / Bright Nights
Cat No: JCR 029-1
Format: 12″

Quotes: Already a cult item among the jazz dance underground, their second album is a delight! The Observer / Waltz for Koop’ is something special and unprecedented: a jazz-meets-electronic-dance-music album that actually sounds like jazz. The Independent / Waltz for Koop’ is a lovely, summery record…utterly carefree and pretty throughout. The Independent on Sunday / Near-perfect! Muzik / a wonderful though hopelessly romantic record. Mixmag

Info: “Bright Nights” is the second single release of Koop’s wonderful album “Waltz For Koop”. After “Summer Sun”, “Bright Nights” is another track graced by the no fuss-vocals of Yukimi Nagano. The original version sounds like a soundtrack to those frail, still moments in the wee small hours of morning. Brushes merely whisper the drum-pattern and a hesitant vibes+voice-melody repeats until it succumbs to sleep. It’s pure pleasure listening to this track. Rima aka Domu and Volcov from . . . →

Alternative Press / deceptively organic and wholly inventive. Wired Magazine / In Between unfolds in unexpected ways. New York Times

Info: Somethin’s Missing (Could this be the debut.) I bet it would have been quite strenuous for you as well. Your shoulders are aching and your eardrums are somewhat smothered by the flow of heart-warming words: 10 1/2 times around the world and everyone is concerned about you: your opinion, your address, your album-release-date. The job here is to break a sound that the world hasn’t been waiting for, but before you can say „Japan-tour“ you are already on the road and you just can’t find the brakes. A strange sensation… . . . →
