You’d be forgiven for thinking Atjazz has been pretty much omnipresent in the last few years - remixing a plethora of artists, recording collaborative tracks with a who’s who of quality dance music producers, not to mention nurturing new artists on his Atjazz Record Company imprint. Yet the question he has been asked most is “when will there be any new Atjazz material?”
Well, Martin Iveson aka Atjazz is back with an answer, albeit in the form of questions of his own with this 3-song release…
The first song/question posed “Does This Qualify?” sees Atjazz digging deep into his love of jazz & dance as way of an answer.
“Well, Does It?” reiterates the question. This recording shares the same message yet flows into what is widely known these days as ‘Deep House’ rolling out electronic hats and kicks yet keeping his usual soft centered sound.
His last question is directed at the listener and also to himself - “Happy Now?” Easy there Martin we say. We’re guessing you’ve had this release pent up in that head of yours for some time. “Yes!” he answers. “People have asked me over and over for new Atjazz material and with my label and artist obligations I just haven’t had a moment for myself, so now it’s done are we happy now?”…
I guess we’ll leave him to cool off a bit then! But this is a labour of love and we can really hear his emotions flowing. A trio of songs for you all to enjoy as Atjazz takes things back to his own sound, and not a minute too soon.
