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.

The Hype: King Street’s stepsister label Street King recently released a vibrant single “Global Apocolypse” by one of Spain’s hottest rising House producers, Pach DJ. House producer Mihalis Safras’ Remix of the tune gave us all the deep thrusting percussion, bouncing baseline and looped up synth that one would expect from a peak hour pumper. Fellow Greek countryman Lee Burton raised the pH with a drop of acid and EU producer Mikee delved deeper into the machine with some borderline industrial samples. Now we’re adding “Danza Loca” to create a further crank up the heat. On remix duty are italian producers, the Deepshakerz who hit us with a funky rolling rhythmic tribal instrumental mix that’s sure to get clobbers flocking to the dance floor. Their Dub is a bit more hifi with snares and other popping percussion. And it’s off & poppin’ just like that.
