From the streets of Birmingham, via collaborations with names such as Jose James, Dizzee Rascal and ARCo supporter Gilles Peterson, to the studios of Derbyshire, Atjazz Record Company is proud to present our debut release from talented artist and remixer Ben Marc: Wait.
Giving us a taste of the style that fans have come to know from Ben we start with “Wait”, a tranquillising vocal note that resounds and reverberates over a layered and counterpointed percussive beat, dotted with elegant notes and snaps of melody.
Stepping further into Ben’s background as a fan of reggae & dub with “Safe Sounds”, a pressing hook slowly builds and we develop a deeper understanding of the intricate levels of production as the track unfolds in our ears and works it way through our senses.
We couldn’t let this release go by without giving it the full remix treatment and Atjazz duly obliges with the first effort which, in true style, pays homage to the original whilst putting a classic, rhythmic jazz-infused tint on proceedings.
Finally, prolific artist Si Tew arrives with his interpretation of the cut. In typical Si Tew style his dub is more pensive and deeper than the usual fare and it’s all the more impressive for it. With its light melodic notes and bursts of bass this is a perfect note on which to complete an exciting debut.
