De-Phazz – No Jive
De Phazz is a delightful combination of jazz, hip-hop, r&B, soul and pop. The music is layered with strings, scratches and found sounds. The end result is beautiful and intriguing. Here on No Jive from the 1997 long-player Detunized Gravity, everything is evident. The brainchild of German producer Pit Baumgartner, the lineup of artists that appear on De Phazz offerings has changed from CD to CD, with some notable regulars given frequent billing.
While this track dates back to 1997, the band continues to produce new music. Their latest long-player is Audio Elastique. (2012) You can check out the band by visiting their web site (German). Give them a listen!
