This monster tune came out at the end of ’96 and was probably hammered for the next 2 years. But, rightly so, to be honest, Global Communication’s ‘Space Jazz’ mix is fantastic.

Jazz Carnival
Far Out Recordings/UK/12
Yes this is the ’70s jazz funk classic with a tiny bit of extra programming to make it a little more floor friendly. However, on the flipside from the original is a wicked deep techno workout from our friends at Global Communications. Eerie string sounds hover over substantial beats, a thick, heavy ‘washing machine’ style bassline and delicate key sounds. Not unlike the sound of Larry Heard, Chez ‘n’ Ron and Maurizio having a deep jam. A very, very must have record. Chris Orr
