Jazzanova are maybe best remembered for their early Compost Records releases from the German scene – tracks that really helped reintroduce jazz and Brazilian modes to the contemporary dancefloors back in the 90s! In the years since those now-classic releases, Jazzanova have moved more strongly towards a role as remixers, lending their strong sense of history and sonic depth towards a range of other artists – often with an approach that really transforms the original tune, and makes the whole thing feel like a fresh Jazzanova track! This collection of work from a decade in the studio really lives up as a strong testament to that role – and showcases the Jazzanova touch on sublime cuts that include "Ordinary Guy (Jazzanova rework ext version)" by Joe Bataan, "Naze (Jazzanova rmx)" by Spinning Motion, "Believer (Jazzanova rmx)" by Paul Randolph, "Skybreaks (Jazzanova rmx)" by Heritage Orchestra, "Parallels (Jazzanova serial rmx)" by Atjazz with Dawne B, "Listen To The Drums (Jazzanova rmx)" by Outlines, "Dimentica Domani (Jazzanova rmx dub)" by Malika Ayane, and "Stimela (Jazzanova rmx)" by Hugh Masekela.

A comprehensive guide to the club jazz sound of the past 25 years or so – that sweet blend of jazzy roots and contemporary rhythms that first sprung to life in London at the end of the 80s – then grew through dancefloors on the German, Italian, and Japanese scenes of the next decade – as well as work from the American scene too! The book offers a deep discography of all the best work in this mode – from early releases on labels like Acid Jazz, Mo Wax, and Ninja Tune – through the big wave of excellent indie sides from the late 90s, as the London scene gave us broken beat, Germany gave us Compost and SonarKollektive, Tokyo gave us UFO and Nobokazu Takemura, and Italy gave us Schema and Right Tempo – then the whole thing went back to basics in the 21st Century, as a range of acoustic combos renewed the music from around the globe! But there's also a lot of surprising strands here, too – and the book offers up hundreds of listings – each with full color cover images, titles and dates in English – and a small review of the record in Japanese. The format is similar to other Japanese discographies we stock – with more than enough content for English speakers – and the book is almost 300 pages in length, and very thorough. Book
