RhoDeo 1814 Grooves

Hello, been away last week (postings were scheduled) hence no re-ups, consequently there will be plenty next week, that is presuming WO III hasn't been started by that silly person in the White House...

Today a very well picked & stylish collection of acid jazz/ jazzdance/ hip hop at first, expanding into trip hop, latin grooves, trip hop & jungle on later releases. Most tracks compiled by dj Patrick Forge of Da Lata fame. The combination of funk and jazz with hip hop beats and Latin rhythms, originated in the late 1980s from the club revival of old jazz and funk records (weird grooves). The sampling of jazz and funk, with the aim of finding a hook or groove for a new song, is also called acid jazz. The genre was especially popular in England, where groups such as Incognito, Jamiroquai and Brand New Heavies made good decorations in the nineties with a smooth jazz funk sound. Jazzdance shares many style characteristics with fusion and jazz rock, although jazz dance (through the use of danceable drum loops) is more focused on the dance floor. ..... 'N Joy

The Rebirth of Cool series was one of Patrick Forge's projects that would last through-out the 90's. He was involved in quite a bit at the time of this one and the time represented a pivotal juncture in musical paths and careers. Several genres were on the verge of taking off; from underground to electronic to nu-bossa and break-beats, Patrick was in the middle of it all - and then some. Also spinning with Gilles Peterson and the radio shows, to various other projects that existed and would soon exist like Batu and Da Lata, these were truly exciting times. And meshing with a general musical sentiment, you had this series in a time when acid-jazz and music from all over the world was kind of coming together.
