Various Artists : Jazzanova – The Remixes 1997-2000

A luxury rather than a necessity...

Berlin-based producer/DJ collective, boasting spectacular surnames like Knoblauch, Barck and Krettschmann. Here’s two CDs’ worth of their remixes, which feature strong elements of jazz and bossa nova (hence their name).

Necessary or evil? A luxury rather than a necessity but their remixes of 4 Hero and MJ Cole are classy, open marriages of state-of-the-art rhythms and sleek retro grooves.
