Jazz Cat
LP | 2018 | US | Original (Cold Busted)
21,99 €*
Release:2018 / US – Original
Genre:Hip Hop
Austin hip hop beatrepreneur The Deli made serious waves with previous Cold Busted album Vibes 3, featuring the song “Flowers.” This track shook up the Spotify world with over 14 million plays and inclusion on at least 500 playlists. Anticipation is strong for a follow-up from The Deli and, with his new album Jazz Cat, he delivers with gusto. Filled with the smoked-out, laid-back cut-and-paste rhythmology that The Deli is known for, Jazz Cat contains 15 enticing beat compositions. The title cut shows where he’s at, transmitting an old-is-new-again feel through scratchy snare snaps, loping piano chords, and faraway — both in time and place — city sounds. Other highlights include the dreamy lounge pressure of “Virgo Flip,” “Fractals” and its shimmering vibraphone atmospheres co-produced by Lungfulls, the ‘hip hop party happening down the street’ vibe of “Spring,” and the crucial, jazzy beat construction of “Going Home.” Dig in … wIth Jazz Cat, The Deli trips the night fantastic.

There’s plenty of highlights on the release: “Morning Glory” with its rocksteady beat, “Natural High” and its psychedelic vibe, “Unconditional” with its beefed up Motown-like feel, “Call It A Day”’s dreamy funk affair, and the reminiscing rhymes of Awon, a figure in the new emerging ‘jazz hop’ scene, flow rhythmically while DJ Damented’s scratch skills add a next level vocal chop to the beat on “Sweet Memories”. Deciding to include this one in the crate should be easy, much like the cut’s vibe.

The mesmerizing vibes continue as Tokyo-based beat-slinger Bugseed drops the dreamy “Mindless” straight to the platter. Tajima Hal (Hermit City Recordings) closes out the single in style with “All Day,” featuring cut-up beats, looped guitar and vocals, and an otherworldly flavor.

Poldoore’s The Day After, his brilliant second album for the Cold Busted label, garnered heaps of praise, loads of play, and a multitude of heads nodding to its crafty beats. The next step is to revisit these songs with a collection of delicious remix treatments, contained in the upcoming The Day After Remixes. For an advance taste, Cold Busted has gathered two of these cool versions for a special 7“ single. Rotterdam’s rising production talent Moods, already well-known for his remixes on SoundCloud, tackles ”Hard To Forget“ in a dreamy, unforgettable style. The vocal hook is filtered and accented against boom bap rhythms while a lovely, cut-up string section adds emotional gravitas. ”Midnight In Saigon”, featuring vocalist Astrid, is the single’s next selection, and here it’s remixed by Los Angeles producer extraordinaire B. Bravo. He gives the track a cool FM soul vibe, adding G-funk melodies, chunky guitar, and a bubbling R&B bass line that wonderfully compliments the source material. DJs and true funk fans rejoice ... this whole record is on point

Akshin Alizadeh, the man from Azerbaijan, is the lucky one tapped from the label’s roster to remix Marlena Shaw’s “Woman of the Ghetto.”The producer’s strong funk and nu-jazz influences, as well as his ability to combine funky grooves with punchy hip-hop beats, are on full display once again. Rightfully dramatic orchestral strings give way to bluesy rhythmic wah-wah guitar plucking, slightly cabaret-ish piano, pitch bending keys, and a totally sultry sax. The percussion sounds like signature Alizadeh with a flickering hat pattern, well placed snare rolls, and punchy interplay with the kick.

Release:2018 / AU – Original
Genre:Hip Hop
Australian rhythm-twister Shinji refers to his music as “eclectic hip-hop instrumentals with no regard for genre or tempo” and promises that he’ll “ ip even the most obscure samples into soulful beats.” This modus operandi is evident in his debut long-player for the Cold Busted label, In Colour. Twelve captivating beat constructions reveal the breadth of Shinji’s record collection and the absence of stylistic boundaries. This makes for an impeccably cool listen, working both for the beat-heads and in the headphones. Highlights include the chunky soul groover “For Some Reason,” the spacey Spanish- avored guitars and percussion of “Pioneer,” “Menace” and its evocative electronic treatments and drum breaks, and the delicious ‘70s soundtrack funk of “Grand Mash.” There’s something juicy for any discerning listener within Shinji’s inventive sample concoctions. In Colour, loud and clear.

The mix-and-match methodology goes into overdrive at Cold Busted HQ as a new 7” combines universally lauded beat maker Emapea with fiery tunes from Blue In Green and The Deli. Emapea is making serious waves after his latest albums for the label – Zoning Out Volume 1 and Seeds, Roots & Fruits – have enlisted many new fans to the Polish producer’s cause. Here he takes on Japan’s Blue In Green, transforming “Rainy Streets” into a head-nodding elevator ride to a classy high-rise penthouse. Solid drum hits and scratched horn riffs make for a pleasant journey. On the flip-side, Austin’s The Deli gets the Emapea treatment as “Flowers” is deftly remixed in a jazz-hop style. The original version was a huge track on Spotify, and Emapea respectfully lays boom-bap rhythms and deep scratches over the ghostly impression of a jazz trio fading into the distance. Lovely vibes from Cold Busted all ‘round.

He is known for his atmospheric instrumental production which incorporates sound elements from extensive use of jazz and soul samples. His latest release, Bloomsday, is a collection of 19 essential instrumentals."If you were to grab tracks at random from Bloomsday, you might not have guessed that those songs came from the same album. However, when you listen to the album in the way that it was arranged, it will all start to make sense, and you can start to hear how Esbe connects the dots from one song to the next. Esbe draws from a lot of different styles and influences, whether it be soul, hard bop, cool jazz, bossa nova, boom bap, down tempo, jungle, house, or drum and bass, just to name a few. This might sound like he’s unfocused or trying to do too much with his music, but Esbe has a good sense for not overcrowding his individual tracks. Each song might bring in a couple of different elements, but he keeps his arrangements clean, with just the right amount of interesting samples to build from, and the patience to let them unfold at a steady pace, without forcing anything. There are plenty of obscure samples that you won’t place, but he also manages to pick a few key spots to drop some well-known samples, but then re-purposes them in interesting ways in which to give them new life.Bloomsday will take more than one listen to really sink in, but it will eventually sneak up on you and reveal its cleverness in really subtle and interesting ways. Esbe has a large musical vocabulary, but he also knows when to pick his spots, piling it on thick at key moments, and backing away at others, giving the listener space to breath and soak in all the different musical ideas floating around here." - scratchedvinyl.com

Release:2017 / US – Original
Genre:Hip Hop
Hailing from within the heat of Florida, Brandon* is a gifted producer whose musical style is an eclectic blend of Hip Hop, Jazz, Lounge, and Latin flavors. Tough beats move alongside swirling strings, soundtrack-ish atmospheres, and nostalgic orchestral arrangements, all seemingly lifted from obscure vinyl thrift store finds in the sunny retirement capitol. It’s a refreshingly perfect mix of elements, resulting in ‘beats music’ that is amorous and enchanting. This is even more apparent on Brandon*’s latest long-player on the Cold Busted imprint, titled “Dreamscape Part 4”. The producer’s other Dreamscape releases explored his distinct sound, and this latest brings this to further maturity and acclaim. From the bombastic Bossa of “Cabana Chat” to “Oasis” gentle acoustic guitars to the tropical jazz vibe of “Rio Dio”, “Dreamscape Part 4” will delight and captivate, and nicely compliments an exotic cocktail.

Release:2016 / US – Original
Genre:Hip Hop
Funky Destination is an exciting retro-styled funk project formed by Vladimir Sivc, also known as Mr. Louie. Hailing from the town of Osijek in eastern Croatia, early on Louie honed his guitar skills and started developing the funk foundation that would guide his sound. A move across Croatia to near the Adriatic Sea introduced Louie to new friends and encounters with turntables and DJ’ing. All of this came together to create Funky Destination, a full-on ‘party time’ project fusing live, organic instrumentation alongside classic-sounding beats, sending the dance floor into a nostalgic frenzy. “Funkadelic Stereo Adventures” is the latest Funky Destination album for Cold Busted and it fulfills on the evocative title’s promise. The set includes ten blazing tunes that bubble with choppy, wah-wah guitar, swinging drums and percussion, delicious horns and bass lines, and, occasionally, stirring vocals of the soulful persuasion. The album’s opener, “The Ocean Of My Mind”, is a prime example … lovely island-influenced vocals, disco strings, latin-influenced horns, and booming drums all combine for some serious heat. Other highlights include the ’70s soundtrack-worthy “Sweet Of Love”, the hip hop flavor of “The Game Of Shades”, and the gritty high speed chase of “Where Are The Blues Brothers”. Groove no further … you’ve reached your destination.

Release:2018 / US – Original
Genre:Hip Hop
Cold Busted presents Exquisite Spirits, the latest from D.Dahlinger, a self-described “Northern California-bred, Japan-based dusty dollar/yen bin loop digger.” The follow-up to 2016’s debut album Brisk Temps (and his appearance with Pigeondust on Cold Busted’s Only On Vinyl 2 compilation), Exquisite Spirits is another brilliant exercise in tough, boom-bap beats at meditative tempos and engaging sample source genre-clashes. D.Dahlinger’s influences are wide-ranging, with Paul’s Boutique and Paid In Full hotly tipped alongside psych-rock and shoegaze, as well as the attitudes of west coast skateboarding culture thrown in. A relocation to Japan also created noticeable inspiration, giving the music a wandering flavor that often feels like solemn exploration. A prime example of D.Dahlinger’s distinctive sound is the curiously titled “B,” which dreamily combines glistening harps, compressed vinyl noise, and lovely piano over a solid beat foundation. There’s also the pensive build of “Color Scheme 13,” with a gentle flute that deceptively calms the listener before the approaching sonic storm; the molasses intro of “Wind Back Up” which increases in tempo to reveal an intricate construction of samples and melody; and the deft trip hop thump of “Anyone’s Out There,” featuring layers of D.Dahlinger’s trademark hypnotic embellishments. Exquisite Spirits lives up its name, being both haunting and hard-to-ignore ... beats designed for the ages.

Genre:Hip Hop
Emapea, the renowned beat-maker from Poland, burst upon the scene with multiple compilation appearances on Cold Busted, an inclusion on Mark Farina's Mushroom Jazz 8, and his stunning debut album Seeds, Roots & Fruits. Fans and headz worldwide have been clamoring for a follow-up, but all Emapea wanted to do was just 'zone out.' And that's what happened, with the release of Emapea's twenty song album Zoning Out, Volume 1. Emapea's cuts are meant for the listener to get lost in – but they're not only for chilling, or when deep in thought, but also for getting in that crucial head-nod zone, like when the DJ drops the dopest beat. Expertly crafted and sequenced, the album presents a boom-bap journey that's dreamy and spacey while remaining tough and jazzy. "Check It Out" exemplifies the mood with its smooth drums, chiming keys, subtle sax riffs, and hip hop shout-outs. The vibe expands on "Motion", adding an exotic, worldly flavor to the seductively loping rhythm. And "Classy" features a smokey saloon piano melody that cruises smugly out of jeep-beat speakers. This track was recently featured on a limited postcard record, mailed surreptitiously to lucky Emapea supporters. Zoning Out, Volume 1 defines Emapea as an artist to watch on the international beat scene. Pay attention as Volume 2 will be continuing the journey in later months.

The sandy beaches of New South Wales, Australia, give way to dusty beats of Aussie producer Shinji in this funky seven inch single on Cold Busted. Taken from his forthcoming album In Colour (coming in April 2018), this single features two retro-tastic tracks that will send the beatheads swinging across the floor. “Second Wind” opens up with heavy Rhodes piano chords accompanied by a crucial rhythm and streetwise horns. Evoking the soundtrack to a TV detective series from the ‘70s, the cut unloads serious action in a 45-slinger’s DJ set. Flip the record for “Grand Mash,” which begins in the hip hop zone before soundtracking a movie scene of the pimp-mobile once again in pursuit. Groovy horns, tough beats, and a way-cool-for-school spoken interlude move this one to the top of the crate-digging charts. Shinji strongly delivers the goods, queuing things up nicely for his sure-to-be essential long-player.

Limited cassette edition!Belgian producer Poldoore (born Tom Schillebeeckx) has revealed The Day After, handily providing a sequel to his well-received previous album on Cold Busted, The Day Off. Within its eleven distinctive tracks Poldoore has further developed his vibe-rich sound, creating deft blends of funk, soul, lounge, and reggae topped with punchy drum breaks. The Day After is filled with highlights and shows Poldoore’s keen ability at crafting floor-effective instrumental head-nodders as well as delicate melodic arrangements featuring talented guest vocalists. “No Face” and “A Higher Intelligence” (featuring Kabanjak of Ancient Astronauts) are examples of Poldoore’s fine-tuned beatology, mixing hip hop samples and tough DJ-ready rhythms over impressively produced musical elements. The result is much headier than the usual ‘instrumental hip hop’ fare, with cuts equally at home in the clubs as in the earphones. But it’s with the vocal tracks that The Day After really shines. The lovely and soulful “Midnight In Saigon” presents vocalist Astrid who entices the listener with her intoxicating melodies, while London-based rapper Barney Artist adds compelling verses to Poldoore’s proper beats on “Broke For A Minute”. A pleasant surprise also comes in the form of “The Road”, a skankin’ reggae prime-mover featuring Thievery Corporation collaborator Sleepy Wonder, as well as sax and flute from Garrett Kobsef who recently recorded with Grammy winners Morgan Heritage. These ambitious moments heighten the resonance of Poldoore’s The Day After, placing it firmly in the realm of something special.

Genre:Hip Hop
Es-K & Loupo team up again for their “Symbiosis EP” presented by Cold Busted Records.Transmitting crucial beats from Burlington, the Vermont-based producers Es-K and Loupo have crafted a smooth, introspective long-player for the Cold Busted label titled Symbiosis. Holland-born Es-K (Essential Knowledge) is known for his monthly Spontaneous Grooves series (where a collection of tracks are created in one sitting) and his vital 2016 album Passages. Fellow VT rhythm-wrangler Loupo is also on the rise, with a recent album on the Melody Soul label named Good Company. This new collaborative release, “Symbiosis”, is a brilliant meeting-of-the-minds, blending the styles of these two talents over the course of ten tracks. The result is deep and meaningful as well as groovy and ‘headz approved,’ showcasing the duo’s penchant for envelope pushing in terms of atmosphere, melody, and rhythm. From the opening chords of “Aqua” – reminiscent of expansive works from the likes of Lonnie Linston Smith – Symbiosis sets itself apart in the realm of beat-conscious production projects. Sparkling Rhodes piano, a winding jazz bass line, and an overall pensive vibe lead midway into a funky drum part, which almost seems curiously added as an afterthought. The fusion-istic instrumentation and understated, downbeat rhythm flavor continue throughout “Symbiosis”, shining on cool cuts like “Road To”, the tough, slow motion stepper “Gavel”, “TwoTone” with its jerky beats and film noir attitude, and “CooLit”’s cosmic quiet storm meditation. Es-K and Loupo are onto something unique and special, and Symbiosis lays out their fruit of their sonic exploration for all to enjoy.

This third seven inch release in Cold Busted's reggae series leads with "Sufi Dance" from Greek beat-wrangler Mister T. A master of multiple funky genres, Mister T shows his acumen for the island sound on this smooth track, first appearing on the Cold Busted compilation Dub 2. Carried by steady guitar chord chops and a melodic horn line, "Sufi Dance" features a heavy drum beat and echoed-out sound splashes of both an earthly and metaphysical nature. Frankfurt-based producer Krystian Shek – a veteran of Pete Namlook’s FAX +49 – 69 / 450464 label as well as his own Thai Dust imprint – displays his own dub-matic bona fides with "Postbox 1902", a new track exclusive to this release. This one struts forward in an irie fashion, powered by cool guitar plucks, calming Rhodes chords, and a deliciously upfront bass and drum rhythm section. This wax is primed and ready for the DJ's spinning platter, and both these cuts appear here on vinyl for the first time. Big up!

Release:2017 / US – Original
Genre:Hip Hop
Under the glow of moonlight, Zak Damundo has arrived on the Cold Busted label scene with his fantastic debut album 3am. The alias of San Francisco DJ / producer Zach DeVincent, Zak Damundo presents eighteen original and sampled beats that are mixed continuously in the physical realm (CD and vinyl), but also available digitally as individual cuts. An underground dance music veteran, DeVincent is the host of SWIM on Digitally Imported Radio, an affiliate of the Bay Area's independent hip hop TV program Distortion 2 Static, and has released tunes for the likes of 5 and Dime Recordings, Acryl Music, Looq Records, and Open Bar Music. 3am is aptly titled as the tracks transmit a dead-of-night vibe, with loose rhythms, spacey samples, and lush melodic constructions. The continuously mixed version shows Zak and the album in their element, as a solitary evening journey motoring through city streets is sonically intimated. Individually, the album's cuts are prime movers for the crafty selector, perfectly elevating the after-hours lounge DJ set. 3am opens with "Soul" which draws from 'quiet storm' '80s funk in the low end and dreamy, ambient '90s electronica through its swirling pads. The stylistic combination is infectious and continues throughout this evocative album. Other highlights include the echoed guitar chops and rising pads of "Comedown", "Drift"'s pristine, laid-back jazz-funk textures, the dramatic strings and piano over a boom-bap beat in "Say Goodnight", and the lovely, immersive hip hop soundscape of "Venice". Zak Damundo is on point, and 3am is recommended for any nocturnal hour.

Among the standouts are the opening “Hit The Breaks”, combining harmonica, ’60s style fuzz guitar, heavy beats, and some crucial vocal scratches; “Let Them Be”, with Miss Glue’s lovely vocals providing a counterpoint to acoustic guitar cut-ups; and “Watch The Clouds”, featuring gentle piano, a loungey string section breakdown, and wistful vocals from Squashy Nice. Back To The Essence should be ingested whole, as its plentiful tracks radiate fun, funk, and good vibes. It’s like a virtual block party dropping down wherever its cuts are playing.
