I also have this on vinyl, my bro and I used to go down to Dingwalls, Candem Town every Sunday afternoon and boogey to the ellicit grooves! Wow, those days!!

I am trying to locate Black Dahlia by David Troop - it's off the album 'Freedom Principle - Acid Jazz & Other Ellicit Grooves Vol 2'... does andyone know where I can get it? I do have the vinyl but I got no way of converting it to mp3.


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".
