Taking inspiration from the master John Coltrane, Jafrosax morphs a 20th century spin on the raw energy of the master. Produced by Pantone artists Yukihiro Fukutomi (who recently dropped his “Equality” album) and Jazztronik, this long player cobbles together the elements of new and old with a wicked spin on the future. With established vocalists from Gothenberg, Koop and Hird, Yukimi Nagano and Philadelphia’s Vikter Duplaix are amongst the wealth of talent assembled on this project.

The introduction track with vocal cassanova, Vikter Duplaix “In The Morning” is a mellow spring affair with his life affirming sensual lyrics sitting on top of a sweet Brasilian house vibe from Jazztronik released as a promo 12″ in the summer and found it self in every quality DJ’s box. Spearheaded by the spine tinkling vocals from Yukimi the tracks “Wait And See” and “Drawn 2 U” highlight why she has been dubbed the Billie Holiday of the modern era. “Wait And See” sits with high tempo broken beat action exploring the depth and mood of Yukimi’s voice that set’s this stereophonic experience. “Drawn 2 U” has found fans worldwide especially from Dimitri From Paris who will feature on his forthcoming Defected In The House CD coming in January. The title track brings the aural chaos with hyper energetic feeling as a flagship track for Jafrosax’s unique style linking into the Detroit techno baron’s ‘underground resistance ’timeless classic ‘hi tech jazz’ gets the Jafrosax makeover to sterling effect. Beat maker of the moment DJ Mitsu The Beats stands tall alongside his local outfit Gaggle to team up on the beats backdrop for Jafrosax to work the musical canvas.

Also featured as bonus tracks for the club heads and and the dance floor sees “Drawn To You” get flipped by fellow Tokyo neighbours and King Street recording artist’s Studio Apartment who speed up the beats and increase the raw energy for a pure dancefloor shakedown. Included as well is the brothers LEE from Faze Action launch their new studio moniker Orto freshening up the tough UK beats for 2006.

All in all a bonafide piece of solid music for you to wiggle your hips or stroke your beard if you prefer! Welcome Jafrosax.

The album JafrosaxNew Standard Of The Future” (Pantone) is going to be released February 03, 2006.
