LJ024 – Let´s Have a Ball Together



Early supports by Giom, Q-Burns Abstract Message, Soul Minority, Atnarko, Mark Farina, Rune Lindbaeq, Lawchair Generals and Tommy Largo

Brazilian-based house music label Lunatic Jazz has prepared this boldly eclectic collection of five great tunes coming from the label’s beloved artists. After the well-received compilation Our House, released at the end of last year seized upon the chance to bring even more new, intelligent sounds to its groovy catalog. Lunatic Jazz contacted some of its favorite artists and asked a very simple question: what´s the craziest sound you´ve made lately? With styles ranging from downtempo to tech-house, indie-dance to psychedelic house, the aptly titled Let´s Have a Ball Together is the answer.

Colors Sound System, the DJ/producer duo from Sao Paulo, Brazil, has been building a solid reputation as off-kilter house music composers. In addition to Lunatic Jazz their music has been released through Candy Music, Blunted Funk, and Conya Records with support from the likes of Quentin Harris, Groove Armada’s Andy Cato, and Mark Farina. Colors Sound System’s percussive and psychedelic “MDMA” opens this collection and should inspire many frenzied late night hoedowns.

Manuel Sahagun is a beloved house music talent from Buenos Aires, Argentina with a respected discography through labels like Kolour, Flavour and his own Candy Music. Manuel contributes “Trip To Guayaquil,” a smooth and groovy breakbeat track that lowers the tempo while increasing the vibe.

In 2010, DJ Ino released one of Lunatic Jazz’s favorite albums Kids On Boogie (House Cafe Music Records). As the Spanish producer finishes his first EP for Lunatic Jazz this compilation delivers a taster in the form of the sleek, dark tech-house builder “Le Ciel.”

From Winnipeg, Canada comes Purespace Recordings artist Joe Silva. Here he tries a different tact with the smooth, downtempo cut “I Don´t Remember” which features some beautifully haunting female vocals. After the huge success of his two past EP´s on Lunatic Jazz, this producer continuers to show his passion for groovy electronic soul music.

Filoops releases for the first time on Lunatic Jazz and it´s a great debut. “Crazy Indian Bike Rider” is a nasty, tripped-out, and funky track that’s perfectly at home on the label. It´s a tasty bit of what´s coming soon from the Belo Horizonte-based Filoops, an agenda that includes some future contributions to Lunatic Jazz.

Lunatic Jazz Records just celebrated three years and 23 releases from carefully selected, prestigious music-makers such as Funky Transport, Prztz, Asad Rizvi, Anhanguera, Joe Silva, Sound Diggers and Gabriel Black, all of whom have played their part in the São Paulo label’s rise.
