During the course of writing and recording their upcoming debut album for the Annabel (lee) project of mellow, moody jazz, classical and folk stylings, (www.myspace.com/seachild) Richard and Annabel took a little time to explore their shared love of dance music.
My Mistake builds from a cooking jazz loop into a deep, moody club tune featuring clavinet, flute and Annabelĺs beautifully plaintive vocals. Already tested on the Jazz Cafe dancefloor by Dom Servini it caused quite the funky buzz!
Remixes come courtesy of a trio of unfeasibly talented multi-instrumentalist producers.
Scrimshire Mix: Producing music that fuses all his influences in jazz, soul, Latin and folk the rising star of Wah Wah 45s took time from working on his next album to create this wonderful mix for us. It emerges from earthy acoustic guitar and bongos into an Afrobeat journey with a pathfinding organ solo that will really take you there. Check his runnings at www.scrimshire.com and www.wahwah45s.com
Cortes Bossavantgarde Mix: This warm, funky bossa nova version was created by Cortes, which is the mix-de-plume for Peter Shallmin, head of Kolonki Records based in cool Siberia! A seriously good label pushing a diversity of sounds from latin, funk and deep house to jazz lounge and electronica. Brushes, percussion, cuica, guitar and bass all played by the man himself. www.kolonki-recordings.com
Young David Mix: Having played piano, keyboards and guitar in various groups, including a jazz orchestra and a 10-piece soul band, Young Mr D hails from Birmingham but now spins his magic out of Stockholm. Here he conjures up a hypnotic deep house mix pulsating with warm technology. Check out his awesome new Bubble EP on Universal Vibes. www.universalvibes.com
