Lemon Popsicle - Jazzhead

Lemon Popsicle JazzheadThe first thing that strikes you about this is that it's not particularly, y'know, jazzy. I mean, there's some ragtime/New Orleans-style pianos, sure, but it's essentially just a rollicking little tech-houser. Still, this is a dance music reviews blog, not a court of law or the Advertising Standards Agency or anything, so we'll let 'em off.

Remixes of Jazzhead itself come from Jim Rivers and John Dimas & Cosmic Cowboys. The former accentuates the jazzy elements of the original a little with some nice brushed-snare sounds, the latter pair add just the lightest sprinkling of disco dust, but all three mixes will do the do.

And speaking of dust, you also get bonus cut Dust Village, which is a perfectly serviceable little chugger in its own right, with an energetic kinda roll to it, some wonked-out organ-y sounds and just occasionally, a chap saying 'house' so you know what kinda music it is. Which is always helpful.

Out: This week

About: This comes on respected German label Dieb Audio. They're having some website 'issues' right now, apparently, but for now you can find 'em on Facebook, MySpace and Soundcloud.
