With “Electrified” [re:jazz] present a second collection of electronic edits. Most tracks are previously unreleased and related to originals from the 2008 studio album “Nipponized”. There are also some edits of older titles from earlier albums on this CD, previously only available on vinyl or digitally. The spectrum of mixes ranges from house to reggae and the participating artists are coming together from different countries and genres.

The idea stems from recent gigs with [re:jazz] trying to play older pieces from their 2003 remix album live. The idea was to release a completely new album with remixes, and contrary to previous concerts, the live program will be adapted accordingly. An intriguing approach and a challenge for all who have experienced [re:jazz] in concert before.

The lineup starts with Kiki Navarro from the Pascha club on Mallorca, who reinterprets and turns the secret hit from the 2006 album Expansions into a Balearic pearl with Gabrielle. The British producer Shur-I-Kan turns “MG44BB” into a hypnotic uptempo club tune, which refuses to be categorized into a certain style, but definitely soars into different spheres, borrowing slightly from trance. Hailing from the U.K. as well, producer Atjazz treads broken beat paths with a bow towards 70’s style boogie elements on “Written In The Stars”. “Skin Against Skin”, edited by Budapest producer team Savages Y Suefo, is a relaxed downtempo tune based on rolling hip hop beats. Mop Mop from Italy are creating a cheek to cheek dance house tune. Munich based Radio Utopia are responsible for the classic ballad of “Nipponized”, “You’ll See”, which turns into an electronic pop gem under their producer’s hands. Once again, our man from Gonkyburg in Sweden Mr Andreas Saag aka Swell Session did it. After his remix of “Release Your Mind” for the “[re:jazz] (re-mix)” album the new Swell Session Remix of “Donaueschingen” is a fine British style hip hop track with a cool bossa feel. Dusty delivers a real jazz-not-jazz freestyle version of “Rita”, like his exotic DJ sets that electrify with ambitious jazz melodies and heavy percussive beats. It shows how one can combine both worlds electronic and real jazz in one tune without any compromisses! The original big band album cut of “People Hold On” from the 2006 release “Expansion” is transfered into a gorgeous 60’s soul-jazz influenced remix from classy French in vogue’s “Metropolitan Jazz Affair” (aka Patchwork and Mr Day), featuring a elegant trumpet solo by Stephane Ronget. [re:jazz] also were able to win over well known Japanese jazz singer Akiko for the recording of “Twiggy Twiggy”. Akiko is the first Japanese female singer to release on Verve (Universal Japan). With The Dynamics [re:jazz] found the perfect remixer for this tune as the crew from Lyon does something very similar with their soul/reggae cover versions as [re:jazz] does in the jazz field.
