The Hype:

Okino brothers Shuya & Yoshihiro, started out as DJs in the 80′s, then began producing in the 90′s and in the early 2000′s their careers took off when hailed by noted DJ & renowned BBC Radio 1 on-air personality Giles Peterson. Meet Kyoto Jazz Massive. They’ve seen works signed to Composte, Yellow Productions, Toshiba EMI, and many others, with over 84 remixes under their belt, appearing on over 64 compilations, and lending their name to even more production credits. For Nite Groves they were most known for their exceptionally eccentric and esoteric remix of Ananda Project‘s “Bahia” 10″ single off their acclaimed Morning Light album. Here they come back to King Street / Nite Grooves and show a deeper side on the latest Abstract Jazz Journey compilation. Jazzy House Master Rainer Truby (of Truby Trio) compiled and mixed the first one back in 2005 and we felt it was time to bring it back to feature some more great talent, namely KJM. Eighteen House-based songs with sprinkles of Jazz, Afro, Latin and Deep flavors are all thrown in the mix. It starts off with a beautiful exclusive version of Lady Alma Project‘s “Dreams,” and the lovely melodies don’t stop. It continues on with tunes like their own Shuya Okino feat. N’Dea Davenport‘s “Look Ahead” (Kyoto Jazz Massive Recreated Mix), Bah Samba feat. Anna Cavazos‘ “Lost Without  You,” Namy feat. Josh MilanFrom Now On,” Groove AssassinAfrik Bounce,” Kerri Chandler feat. Jennifer MorrisonLet Him In,” and many more. It also includes the Terry Hunter Bang Jazz Main Mix of the recent  Top 10 Billboard Club Hit Namy & Barbara TuckerI Can’t Wait.” All of these and more are here for you to get your mixed bag of grooves on.  Buy the whole comp and get the 76+ minute continuous mix as a free bonus!
