Jazxing first went public on a Very Polish Cutouts release - which they shared with the always excellent, Eddie C - back in 2014. Since then the duo have graced their hometown, Gdansk, based Polena Recordings, and both VPC-offshoots - Maciek Sienkiewicz`s Father And Son Records And Tapes, and Zambon`s Transatlantyk imprint - as well as recently delivering a brilliant remix of Luca Averna & Chris Coco for Grant Williams` Eclectics. Jazxing now have a debut LP, Pearls Of The Baltic Sea, good to go, on Brighton`s Higher Love.
The 8, new, original tracks - no edits here - play super authentic homage to the `80s Cosmic Classics found on Daniele Baldelli`s mixtapes, and early `90s Balearic pop. The productions betraying the pairs background, performing in reggae and new wave bands.
Due on September 16th, the album is trailered by the digital single, W Uścisku. With a chorus that translates as “I`m in your arms, hold me in your arms”, it`s a downtempo groover, a slow, acidic, shuffle, that features some very fine vibes virtuosity, and the passionate rock vocals of Kamio Kozlowski - of fellow Poles, Van Cyklop.
Heavy Water rushes in on a siren-like synthetic fanfare, while dramatic, rattling percussion promises some kind ofimminent lift-off. Mr. Basejam doesn’t disappoint, delivering a dynamite, deep, bass-heavy chug, tested by depth-charge sonar blips. A menacing LFO arpeggio propelling the piece out onto the peak-time dance-floor. Its snarlsoftened slightly as Ron launches that fanfare once more. Moody, magnificent, body-moving, it drops down to a congabreak, and then hits you with some real horns, before bringing that bolshy bastard of a beat back. Ltd edition 10" vinyl available from Juno
