I can’t believe it over a year since we last updated this blog. No excuses, We had other fish to fry. But, as the caption says: “It’s a New Day…” We had thought about updating of the music mixes of our mentor DJ2tee, but to be honest he has had enough exposure on the blog. If you want to check out his work, then this is the place: https://www.mixcloud.com/tony-todd/ Highly recommended, but then we would say that wouldn’t we! Instead we though we would concentrate on some of the Weird Jazz Collective musical melanges produced by ourselves and other mixmasters.
Firstly, we start with a mix by obscure UK DJ Uncertain Messenger. A shadowy figure, that to our knowledge, has never posted on MIxcloud. This mix appeared in our Dropbox by magic and features some old school downtempo stuff that UM used to play at Club Atlantis back in the day.
Next up, a mix features some old school jazz and hip-hop from Hamburg DJ Deutsche Byte and Wilmslow’s DJ Red Shift. If you like your hip-hop jazzy this mix will float your boat for sure. Some real classics in the mix!
For the next brilliant mix we hired Australia’s DJ Mr Lob to navigate you through dangerous latitudes of phantasmagorical music to an island where sweet tinges of sunset skies and dark woods harmonise with your musical soul. It is not down in any map; true places never are. Fire your torpedo’s of jazz Mr Lob, let no one in the musical doldrums be spared. Okay that was a bit pretentious, but the mix is brilliant. More excellence in mixing can be found here: https://www.mixcloud.com/MrLob/
Our guest mixer for another stellar mix was the man know as Nick Eachus AKA Nike Sparx who hails from Wallasey a town on the mouth of the River Mersey. Nick is know for his “Cabin Fever” mixes which present an eclectic mix of musical genres. Like those, this exclusive mix he has made for Weird Jazz Collective, features a wide-range of sounds and textures. If you like this mix, then check Nick’s output at: https://www.mixcloud.com/NikeSparx/
And, finally Weird Jazz Collective are proud to present a mix by DJ Hetty Morris. She is virtually unknown outside of her locality, but is worshiped by a small coterie of loyal fans. Hetty, who hails from Warwickshire in the UK is known primarily as the singer in the band “The Little Vagabond” who are known for their odd melange of folk and jazz music. Hetty for the most part, keeps off the radar, but Weird Jazz Collective, through an intermediary, managed to get hold of this exclusive mix. We hope you enjoy it. We did.
