Jazz & Milk turns TEN! To celebrate a decade full of music the Munich based label offers a limited vinyl 12″ edition which comes in a hand-drawn and numbered sleeve – 300 copies available only! Since 2005 Jazz & Milk offers an experimental playground for international artists. On Ten Years of Jazz & Milk four exclusive tracks are brought to you by the likes of Sam Irl, Mieux, Todd Simon & The Angel City All Star Brass Band and label founder Dusty.
On the A-side label artist Sam Irl brings Dub culture onto electronic dance floors. Dreams is a forward driven introspective dub track built around a heavy steppas-influenced rhythm and deep bassline. Expect his full-length solo debut album to released later this year on Jazz & Milk!
Mieux is an upcoming duo from Vienna, famous for their lively Boiler Room performance last year or rather recently their latest album “Are You Happy”, which was heavily featured by the likes of Gilles Peterson, Billboard and many more. With Technotrap they contribute a playful and dreamy uptempo tune that cleverly balances a straight-forward driven beat with harmonic and repetitive melodic figures.
Label head Dusty joins the EP with a slow-house MPC jam called Heavy Lights. After a dreamy intro the track soon fades into a hypnotic direction based on percussive vibes, big bottom samples and heavy hitting snares.
Todd Simon‘s arrangement, blending multiple versions of a classic for his 21-piece ensemble featuring himself on Flügelhorn and Alan Lightner on Steel Drums. Recorded live to tape in an 80 year-old studio located in the heart of Hollywood.
