Jestofunk's debut album 'Love In A Black Dimension' is one of those that have inspired many people in general and a lot of dj's and producers in particular. Outstanding Italian jazzdance-deephouse-reggea-dub-funk without any pretention. Many tracks of this album have been heard on different kinds of dancefloors, bars and garden parties all over the world. 'Can We Live' is pure (dancefloor) madness and the 'The Ghetto' cover belongs to one of the better reinterpretations of this classic song. No coincidence that both tracks were produced in collaboration with living legend and vocalist Ce Ce Rogers. From uplifting booty shakin' tracks to smoked out downtempo lovesongs: This album has it all, very special guests: vocalist Ce Ce Rogers and trombonist Fred Wesley.

A word on those "Moai" what those socalled archaeologists don't tell you is these Moai are found in 9 meters of undisturbed sediment, impossible for such a small island to lay down so much sediment in a 1000 years more like 10,000 years when the island was bigger. What is the meaning of it all ? For me it is clear they are standing in remembrance, commemorating a terrible disaster that befell their world, there would be no more survivors, they had to move on into an uncertain future, sadness. It would be more apt to call these 'Moai' what they are... Atlanteans
