Shazz and Jean-Marie K met in 1992 at "Respect For France", the first electronic music tour organized in French clubs by the famous Fnac Music Dance Division label, a tour that, for the first time, had a stage composed of sets of DJs and lives of artists like Shazz, Laurent Garnier, Ludovic Navarre aka St Germain or ScanX.
Shazz, an inescapable artist, leaves his indelible imprint on the mythical labels Fnac Music Dance Division and F Communications with titles such as "Milky Way" (Aurora Borealis), "Acid Eiffel" (Choice), "Back In Manhattan" under his own name, or the "No Work Today" of Nuages. He also produced a number of notable albums, "Shazz", "In The Light", "Beautiful", "Heritage", on majors or labels like Sony, Universal Music or Pschent, with titles such as "Innerside", "El Camino", "In My Life" or "Mirage". Some of his tracks are remixed by the greatest producers of House Music and Techno like Osunlade, Blaze, Kevin Yost, Joe Claussell, Ron Trent or Laurent Garnier and Carl Cox for Aurora Borealis. He continues to explore new musical horizons in total independence with "EPilogue" released in 2016. He is currently working on his new opus.
Jean-Marie K, pioneer of the French scene and former A&R of Fairway Records, he pursues his DJ career playing in Parisian clubs like le Rex Club, le Palace, le Queen and in international venues by appearing in clubs and big festivals throughout Europe like Sonar, Dimensions, Mystery Land, Love Parade, and Mayday. DJ resident on Radio FG, he held his residency for 9 years with his show "After FG" with DJ’s like Carl Cox, Sven Vâth or Roger Sanchez. As a producer and remixer he released his music on labels such as Suruba, NRK, Id&T, Jays Records, Betrieb Records or 96 Music for his House project KnR alongside The Avener.
These long-standing friends were left with an ambitious project the re-release of Shazz's most outstanding titles over the past 25 years! The SHAZZer Project was born out of the desire of these two enthusiasts to help discover or rediscover Shazz’s emblematic titles from his albums or F Communications releases remixed by big players of the electronic music scene.
"SHAZZer Project" you're back from the future!
