Various Artists Jazzanova: The Remixes 2002-2005
- Words: Peter Nicholson
- Label: Sonar Kollektiv
Gotta feel for these boys from Berlin, whose first collection of remixes saw such success; now everyone‘s gonna wonder "How does this compare?" For better and worse, it‘s not more of the same. While the¸ber-fat broken beats and super-moody strings on Masters At Work‘s "Our Time Is Coming" certainly recall pre-2002 work, on the whole J-nova breaks new ground with crunchier, more futuristic sounds-among them, the crispy ride of Marcos Valle‘s "Besteiras Do Amor" and the squelchy sci-fi Western flavor of Calexico‘s "Black Heart." Dig the new breed.
