I'm Back... Sort Of

This site continues to get hundreds of visitors a day, despite me having done anything on it for a long long time. So here's the deal; I am totally ignoring the following...

  • Complaints about bitrates
  • Complaints about missing files
  • Complaints about which site is hosting the file
  • Complaints about anything not listed above
I would dearly love to engage in...

  • Discussions about music
  • Discussions about artists
  • Discussions about labels
  • Discussions about new releases
My email is readily available, and I would love to hear from you. I don't know how often I'll be posting, just whenever it strikes my fancy.

What is Acid Jazz?

Acid jazz (also known as club jazz) is a musical genre that combines elements of soul music, funk, disco, particularly looping beats and modal harmony. It developed over the 1980s and 1990s and could be seen as tacking the sound of jazz-funk onto electronic dance/pop music.

The compositions of groups such as The Brand New Heavies and Incognito often feature chord structures usually associated with Jazz music. The Heavies in particular were known in their early years for beginning their songs as catchy pop and rapidly steering them into jazz territory before "resolving" the composition and thus not losing any pop listeners but successfully "exposing" them to jazz elements in "baby steps".

The acid jazz "movement" is also seen as a "revival" of jazz-funk or jazz fusion or soul jazz by leading DJs such as Norman Jay or Gilles Peterson or Patrick Forge, also known as "rare groove crate diggers".
