As the summer ends and the balmy evenings become a distant memory Jansen Jardin provides a chance to reminisce with the sedated, jazzed out keys of a mysterious Portuguese producer named, Someone.
‘Beat’ is a superbly crafted and beautifully played combination of Rhodes piano, languid electronics and sparse percussion that brings to mind the work of Metro Area, had they been perilously addicted to Qualudes. In these times of cut ‘n’ paste mixes of re-edits of remixes of edits, it’s wonderful to hear an original piece of music, full of melody, musicianship and riding such a wonderfully simple yet deliberate groove.
The first remix comes from the enigmatic Texan producer, Vermin, who turned in an excellent mix last year of Rhythm Odyssey’s ‘Move Groove’ on the Lipservice label. Vermin transforms the original track into a seriously wonky, lolloping house groove aimed squarely at dance floors that like it raw and loose! The man given the job of rounding up this truly excellent package is the original master, the Big Bear himself, Stevie Kotey. Stevie has been the mastermind behind so many great tracks over the years and yet again he comes through with a sublime slice of disco action. Keeping the musicality of the original track he pushes the tempo a little higher and delivers a gorgeous, jazzy, dubbed out late night rendition with that ever present Kotey swing.
