great honour to share my listening experience of Croatian artist
Fortadelis' issue Jazzed Up. Previously I did it about Stimulus which
is also a marvellous listening experience. As the title suggests this
9-notch outing is about jazz...at least partly. Indeed, all the
modern/nu/acid jazz facets are elegantly represented over there.
Moreover, Fortadelis is a potent artist who needs no other artists to
remix the tracks to give it an additional value but instead of it he
creates by himself it by shifting from the electronically swinging
jazz and serene synth fusion and yacht pop glimpses to more immersive
areas like deep house based numbers. There is just one little but.
All the tracks were originally created by German Marco Köller and
Fortadelis would change them into more sultry and sunshiny flickers.
All the time one can feel an overwhelming dynamic impulse which is
the main driving and unifying power giving no chance to deviate from
a listening course. All in all, if you need an uncompromising
crossover issue of electronic jazz, moody reflections, and refined
club dance, you should pick it up. A cut above being issued on such
platform as Cyan Music, and Jamendo.
