NAANVA: Rivulet EP

NAANVA:  Rivulet EPBack awhiles just over a year ago, a track by the name of Flowers Of Spring landed on the monkey’s virtual doormat from someone called Naanva. All preconceptions of this being some sort of world music project instantly dissipated as a Cotton Club-style jazzy intro quickly became imbued with the sound of b-boy drums and then it was all about how the jazzy influences alternated

RENEGADES OF JAZZ: Hip To The Jive (2011)

Rating: ★★★★★
Here he is, look, the only man to have done anything original (and good) with jazz and breakbeats since A Tribe Called Quest pretty much. That’ll be Renegades Of Jazz then – a.k.a. David Hanke – a jazz renegade if ever there was one. Put aside your notions of shitty old acid jazz and pretentious chin-stroky tossers – this isn’t anything like that kind of pretentious noodle wank

DJ MOAR: Cumbia’s Beat / B-Batucada (2011)

More from Parisian funky breaks afficionado DJ Moar in the shape of this sweet little mid-tempo, latin b-boy breaks gem out (correctly) on seven inch at the start of next month.
