Reminds me of Red Snapper, but still, Jacuzzi Project sounds quite different and more dense. Full of energy, groovy, eventually less trippy, but still filled with lot of different tasty aromas and perfumes, Jacuzzi Project delivered their own genre and style of nu jazz, a powerful mixture of broken beats and nu soul, a twist of psychedelic and juicy brasses with funky basses. Colorful mixture, a nice combination of explosive free jazz sounds and licks with scratching electronics and modern beats and grooves.
On “Sweeeeet Muse”, Rashid – bass, Yuri Bulychev – electronics , Vlad “Vladushko” – drums, Dan Vanarikov – sax, Nata “Jacuzilla” – voice, and Larimovich – microphone managed to find the right balance between jazz and electronic music, and avoid being full of cliches. This music probably live sound much more killer, still, the record have enough power and energy captured.
A very-very nice surprise. And not so: Russians have great schools and huge art tradition, Jacuzzi Project just confirms once again its values.
Recorded, mixed and mastered in Dnepropetrovsk, Ukraine in 2010-2011. Digitally released by 3pbeats Records on Juno, iTunes and Amazon.
