about

Rocksteady Disco is extremely excited to release this multi-faceted EP from one of American dance music’s most prolific musical minds: JKriv. First up, is “Aguaxirê”— a deep Afro-Brazilian house cut in praise of the Yoruban orisha Oya. Full of moody Detroit-style pads, driving percussion, acid basslines, live trumpet (performed by Escort mainstay Nathan Warner), and an expertly plucked sample, this 9 minute odyssey is crafted for ecstatic dance floor use. Moving to the B side, we hear J rework the música popular brasileira classic “Ive Brussel” into a pool-side day party anthem, complete with a full overdub of the bassline by J with his Fender Jazz bass. Following that is a traditional deejay edit of “Deep Cove View”, a breezy and chilled out Brazilian jazz fusion cut with plenty of piano, slap bass, and vocal scatting. J flexes his production, performance, and arrangement prowess here, delivering 3 tracks ready for the party, the after hours, or the after-after hours.

"Now this is a match made in music heaven. Aguaxirê is a burner and when that acid comes in... oof. Can’t wait to see this work a dancefloor. Loving the smoothouts on the flip too." -Bamboozle aka Eli Soul Clap

Supported by Zernell [Grimy], Cordell Johnson [Excursions], Dicky Trisco, Chris B, Jose Marquez [Fania / Tribe], Dino Soccio [Pleasure Of Love], Marc Meistro [Sol Power], The Silver Rider [Whiskey Disco], Pete On The Corner, Marty Mars, Craig Smith, Souldynamic, Eli Soul Clap, and more.
