MANKOORA: Sonór Tropicàl (Vinyl 7″)

RENEGADES OF JAZZ: Sonór TropicàlRenegades Of Jazz returns to his experiments in tropical sounds under his Mankoora alter-ego after a short break of – oohh – only nine years or so with new vinyl 7″, Sonór Tropical. On the A-side, the title track is an understated piano-led Latin-jazz breakbeat shaker served with a side of violin and a deceptively chunky bassline.  In fact, it’s exactly like a Latin version of those early

RENEGADES OF JAZZ: Neverthless

RENEGADES OF JAZZ: NeverthlessSince 2011, he’s invented the genre of ‘northern jazz’ and put out two albums’ worth of it (plus a remix LP of one of them), created an epically atmospheric Lucifer-themed concept album (plus a remix of the same), dropped an afro-beat inspired long player (and, again, a remix of the same) and now, creative powers as fertile as ever, David Hanke a.k.a Renegades Of Jazz, releases his

KENO: Around The Corner

KENO:  Around The CornerRating: ★★★★★ The new year is finally upon us but what lies around the corner from producer David Hanke? Appropriately enough, it’s a new sample-based cinematic downtempo LP entitled Around The Corner under the nom-de-plume Keno. Which means that ‘the producer with a thousand names’ (well, alright five at least) has added yet another moniker to a growing list that already includes

RENEGADES OF JAZZ: Moyo Zaidi (2017)

RENEGADES OF JAZZ:  Moyo Zaidi Naturally after Renegades Of Jazz’s full-length afro-funky Moyo Wangu outing last year, Moyo Zaidi was only to be expected.

Birds Bees Diesler Gloria Adereti Renegades Of JazzAh ‘the birds and the bees’- that classic British euphemism for having a certain awkward chat – you know – the one about where you have to explain what is wrong with putting a house beat under a soul vocal. Luckily Renegades Of Jazz is on hand to talk Diesler and Gloria Adereti through this embarrassing subject and, what is more, to ensure that at the end of it Birds & Bees

RENEGADES OF JAZZ: Afro Cookie (2016)

Afro Cookie Renegades Of JazzHaving invented ‘northern jazz’ and essayed his hand at a Lucifer-themed breakbeat album, David Hanke – a.k.a.
