audioJazz - Contortion EP

Cats Like That
Tech Again
Black Dragon
Your Love is Liquid

Jazz-influenced harmonics and tech-inspired roots mix to create the distinct and eclectic sounds of audioJazz. DJ Bai-ee and musicians Dirty Turk and K Koltz collaborate to create imaginative music inspired by the house scenes of NYC and Chicago. The audioJazz sound is deeply rooted in house music’s past but feels like something soon to come, ‘future old school’ if you will. The trio has ties to New York and Oakland but came together in Chicago, bringing each of their pronounced influences to the group. The result is an exploratory selection of deep house with an inclusive attitude, often featuring vocalists and musicians from across the country.

Following up on last year’s acclaimed “Momentum” single, audioJazz continues to showcase the diversity of their collective with four tracks of dissimilar style in the Contortion EP. “Cats Like That” combines classic jazz elements with a subtle drum swing, an echoing piano riff, and a bellowing bassline, accented by the narration of Roy Hardgrove. “Tech Again” peppers hypnotic bells across a dark minimal soundscape building into a mysterious atmosphere suiting the darkest of warehouses. “Black Dragon” features memorable keys chiming over heavy swinging drums as the sharp pad stab and room-shaking bass line break to highlight a haunting bridge and vocal drop. The final cut, “Your Love is Liquid,” brings soothing downtempo vibes like a pleasing afterglow. Christina Tamayo’s seductive vocal combines with engaging lyrics as trickling pianos and lush pads ride on top of a rolling sub-bass motif.
