RENEGADES OF JAZZ: Fire (2014)

Fire EP Renegades Of Jazz AspectsFire is the first single off forthcoming LP Paradise Lost from ‘northern jazz’ don Renegades Of Jazz. Turns out he’s enlisted fallen rap angels, Aspects for mic duties and they employ their impressive powers of rhyme and rhetoric to spread the commandments of the adversary – you know – thou shalt add an ‘l’ to the end of any word ending in a vowel, thou shalt drink scrumpy and only

RENEGADES OF JAZZ: Soul Boogie/ L.O.V.E. 1000 (2014)

Soul Boogie Renegades Of JazzKeen readers of MB will know that Renegades Of Jazz has been dropping 45s like they’re hot recently. Apparently it’s all stuff he had waiting around that nobody else wanted to release so he set up a new imprint, Rawkingcuts, to release them. What? Who didn’t want to release these two? B-boy breaks informed by groovy soul jazz (Soul Boogie) and b-boy breaks informed by sixties

RENEGADES OF JAZZ: Assignment B-Boy (2014)

Assignment B-Boy Renegades Of JazzYour mission David (should you choose to accept it) is to create a brace of b-boy friendly breaks out of big band horn riffs and the sort of library music that might accompany sixties and seventies car chases. What do you mean ‘that’ll be a piece of piss’? Oh I see, well, yes, your record does appear to indicate that you have some experience in this sort of thing

RENEGADES OF JAZZ: Rock To The Rhythm (2014)

Rock To The Rhythm Renegades Of JazzRenegades Of Jazz‘s last single Break This Chain broke a stylistic chain of releases of his ‘northern jazz’ style with something more akin to a hybrid of his Mash & Munkee project and good old-fashioned sampled breaks a la The Wiseguys’ second LP The Antidote. Tellingly, that was released on new label Rawkingcuts rather than his Hiperbole imprint or Wass. Here’s another effort very much in the same

VARIOUS: We Are Friends (2014) Free download

Various We Are FriendsNow I know pan-European co-operation is not exactly de rigeur this year what with recent events on the eastern side of the continent (not to mention the persistence of piss-weak ‘What corrupt bankers? It’s immigrants!’ narratives beloved of governments) but a more hopeful model (and message) is provided on We Are Friends, a free twelve track drop of funk, soul, breaks and a dash

RENEGADES OF JAZZ: Gonna Break This Chain/ Gimme Some (More)(2014)

Gonna Break This Chain ROJRating: ★★★★★ Man, looks like I broke out a new pair of Puma Suedes just in time! Renegades Of Jazz is about to go totally off the northern jazz reservation with the totally off-the-chain funky soulful b-boy breaks of Gonna Break This Chain. It doesn’t get much better than that right? Wrong. Digital flip Gimme Some (More) is a phat 100 bpm slab of instro-hop tweaked with ‘golden age’ of soul

RENEGADES OF JAZZ: Sidewinders (2014)

Sidewinders Renegades Of JazzRating: ★★★★★ Renegades Of Jazz returns with Sidewinders, a twelve-strong musical arsenal of heat-seeking ‘northern jazz’ missiles so catchy you’ll be unable to ignore them even if you can fly like Maverick and will probably end up moving to them even if you dance like Maverick. Anyone who has previously experienced the work of ROJ will know that we’re talking one of the few outfits aside

SMOKEY BANDITS: Debut Remixed Vol. 2 (2013)

It seems like only two shakes of a mustang’s tail since everyone’s favourite Balkan/ Mex-American breakbeat outlaws Smokey Bandits struck a deal with one wild bunch of remixers and now here they are again with another lot. Well actually with one survivor from the previous lot – Renegades Of Jazz. But then he’s the fastest jazz-slinger in the west so no one messes with him. Probably why he’s

SMOKEY BANDITS: Debut Remixed Vol. 1 (2013)

George Fotiadis and Quasamodo enlist the aid of a wild bunch of remix bandoleros on what the ‘Vol. 1’ tag would indicate is only the first in a collection of remixes of Smokey Bandits‘ debut LP Debut. Buffalo soldier Blend Mishkin dubs up the riddim on dusty reggae cut Smoke From The Attic, Washington bandidos Empresarios increase the beat on A Son’s Lament, and remix rustler

RENEGADES OF JAZZ: Green Leaf Woman/ Verano Del Corazon (Resense 036)(2013)

It’s always a mark of quality when you see the names Renegades Of Jazz or Resense adorning a release and here they both are on Resense 036 which slipstreamed Ree Keen’s Resense 035 into my inbox. Yes, the Austrian label has teamed up with German artist ROJ in a summery union of party grooves. Green Leaf Woman is a organic breaksy rework of what sounds like energetic west
