ISLE OF JURA

The first in a series of compilations by Jura Soundsystem is a blend of Dub, Ambient, Downtempo, Boogie and Proto House with a focus on music never before released on Vinyl, sought after out of print titles and some special versions edited specifically for the album.
.
The intention with this project was to delve deeper into the reissue pond and unearth some lesser known tracks and artists. Highlights include Smackos (AKA Legowelt) Ambient epic ‘We Can Watch Alf In The Hotel Room’, never before released on Vinyl, the Dub / Psych hybrid of Minus Group’s ‘Black Shadow’, Kash’s sought after ‘Percussion Sundance’ and special edits of Ken Dang and Tabou Combo. The end of the album includes some soothing Ambient tools. 

Isle Of Jura continue to navigate the uneven terrain of the collective wantlist here, jumping licensing hurdles to deliver an official reissue of one of THE all time cosmic classics. Taking us back in time to the sultry summer of 1976, the reissue specialists explore the early work of British/Nigerian soul/dub/funk ensemble Ozo, shining a light on the unique "Anambra", a spiritual, ritualistic expression which became a staple at Mancuso's Loft and Baldelli's Cosmic parties. Fusing African & Nyabinghi drumming with the Buddhist mantra "Om Mani Padme Hum"a mystical flute riff and soulful chants, Ozo created a slow burning moment of true dancefloor transcendence. Here we get both the extended 12" mix and the edited version, backed for the first time by later variation "Anambra River", a deep, dreamlike and mystical reprise which ups the tempo and intensity for a seamless midset flow from Dadawah to Morricone.

STAFF COMMENTS

Patrick says: Another amazing reissue from Isle Of Jura here, treating us to a fully official pressing of this total Loft classic from Ozo. Spiritual vocals dance with gorgeous flute while the ritualistic drums clatter on and on.

Brian Bennett

Voyage : A Journey Into Discoid Funk

Isle Of Jura’s first LP reissue, the highly sought after ‘Voyage – A Journey Into Discoid Funk’ by Brian Bennett originally released in 1978. A cosmic disco classic completely re-mastered from the original master tapes by Matt Colton. 180g vinyl. Bootleged badly in the past, re-issued with love now, the sound quality is top notch!
