We had the chance to get the visit of Renegades Of Jazz last week at Paris DJs. A long afternoon of sharing memories, vinyl obsessions and of course the now world-famous Djouls' salad (a quick one, though, there's been better ones in the past). The man brought copies of his latest EP on glorious 12 inch vinyl and of his upcoming album on CD, 'Paradise Lost'. We'll come back to the album later on, first let's give this 'Fire EP' a rightful listen. This is Renegades Of Jazz' first release on German label Agogo Records, and a really strong single to begin this new adventure, featuring Aspects, the fantastic hip hop crew fro Bristol on vocals. Between a funky & uptempo car chase soundtrack and rave hip hop turntablism, this should bring fire on the dancefloor indeed! Add to that 3 remixes by Skeewiff, Smoove and Cadien and you know this is one for the vinyl DJ bag.

Press Release :
Dear friends and music lovers,

It's exactly five years ago when the idea of Renegades Of Jazz was born and I started making music under this name. I remember uploading my first drafts to MySpace and well... a lot has happened in the meantime. One album and several singles have been released on Wass Records and I've done a lot of remixes and collaborations since this day. So this 6th October is kind of special day for me - 5th anniversary and today is also the release of the first single of the second ROJ album. After signing to Agogo Records we now release "Fire" an uptempo track featuring the Bristol based Rap combo Aspects.

The EP also features three excellent remixes made by funk breaks legends Skeewiff, Bboy breaks head No.1 Smoove and electronic breakbeat purveyor Cadien.

The scratches on Fire have been done by DJ Monsta from Latvia, one of the finest DJ's around.

The Fire EP is now available on 12" vinyl and digital from all good shops.
