STRAIGHT NO CHASER
London based , Belgrade émigré Zeljko Kerleta releases his most assured album yet. When he's not sorting out those licenses for rare East European jazz compiklations (check his Rare Gems series), Zeljko is tirelessly promoting the new sounds of Serbia and this compilation sees tracks from the old and new side of things reworked for the dancefloor. Kicking off with Butti 49's update of Dusko Gojkovic's Quo Vadis Samba, the album includes alternative takes on Janko Nilovic's Giant Locomotion from London's Block 16 and Belgrade's 'Painkiller Septet' alongside So Hayashi's space jazz version of Jan Wroblewski's 'Katorna' and Ex-Robot's broken jazz reworking of Kerleta's own 'Move With Time'. File next to Compost and watch this label grow. (Andy Thomas)

PERRY HEMUS (Woodlands Records)
Wow, really fantastic - well done!!
I Love Panoptikum especially but all the remixes are v. solid and I look forward to playing them out.

NIK WESTON (Mukatsuku PR)
Favourite tracks by BUTTI 49, MFP COLLECTIVE and SIMBAD

TOM WIELAND (Les Gammas/ Panoptikum)
It´s getting better all the time. cool artwork! My fave tunes are Bojan´s painkiller + the Simbad, detroitish one. wicked!

PETER ISAAC (Jally Jazz)
Stunning collection of obscure tracks from European artists, all remixed by contemporary producers. Highlights include Butti 49's easy samba mix of Dusko Gojkovic's 'Quo Vadis Samba' and Block 16's dead funky flute led remix of Janko Nilovic's 'Giant Locomotion'. There's tons more music spread out over 2 slabs of vinyl and the vast array of sounds take in jazz, house, samba, bossa, nu jazz beats, funk and techno. A very impressive collection, and although many won't recognise any of the names here, this shouldn't deter taking a closer look.
DAVID BASSIN (Free Fall, Bay Area)
What a fantastic album!
The first Cosmic Sounds Remix album was one of my favorite compilations of last year and it's safe to say that Volume 2 will wind up on the best of 2004 year-end list. As with Volume 1, artists and producers were asked to select a track from the CS catalog and work their magic. Butti 49, Electrosacher, So Hayashi, Block 16 and others did just that and the result is practically the definition of "future jazz." From slammin' samba and modern afro-beat, to slinky, spooky grooves and plucked, Middle-eastern-flavored strings, there are a myriad of unusual flavors that all come together brilliantly for a most satisfying collection.

DUSTY GROOVE (http://www.dustygroove.com)
Eastern European jazz classics -- remixed! The sound here is really tremendous -- a fresh take on a sound that's still mostly underground -- 60s and 70s recordings from former Iron Curtain nations, most of which are groovers based around the modal, fusion, or funky styles that were big at the time in the west! The set brings together 9 older recordings -- previously issued on Cosmic Sounds in the originals -- with remixers that have a strong appreciation for the grooves, and who open the tracks up without losing any of the charm of the original. The stunning thing is how jazzy the whole set feels -- with most of the solos or instrumental tones still very much in the forefront -- backed by remixing that sets the work firmly in the mode of the best newer work on labels like Compost or Schema.

The remixes are intellectually arranged, absolutely superb!!! Another fine compilation!!!!!
STORE RECORDS (https://www.storerecords.net)
Zeljko Kerleta's Cosmic Sounds imprint has always strived to find that perfect balance between jazz of the traditional variety and nu-er electronically minded material. This compilation reflects that mindset perfectly, offering forward-thinking reinterpretations of a variety gems from the imprint's back catalogue. The Eastern European connection is evident, and with the beat technicians on show here hailing from all corners of the continent, the record has a distinctly all-encompassing feel. Zeljko Kerleta's own "Move With Time" is revisited by Robot, better known as Belgrade resident and guitarist Vlaca. He provides an avant garde re-rub that moves against the clock, with ugly bass stabs, queasy stumbling keys and theatrical guitar stretches. Sinbad, a London based Polish keyboardist, provides the final overhaul of Janko Nilovic's "Giant Locomotion". Sinbad gives the track a beautifully deep reinterpretation, as haunting strings, almost Detroit sounding cosmic keys and a hulking separated bass meet. Butti 49's revision of Dusko Gojkovic's "Quo Vadis Samba" sees those much in demand Norweigan's remould the cut into a live-bass stormer. A mournful brass band sounding melody is countered by defiant parps, as broken step slapped percussion joins effortlessly cool keys for a fun knees-up. As well as unearthing forgotten classics and overlooked musical masterpieces, this selection proves that the label also has an eye on the movers and shakers who are willing to push boundaries and form new musical concepts.

RUI TORRINHA @ groovment, Portugal
Zeljko's label is one of those essential imprints if one wants acquire the multiple jazz forms in a world wide extension. Second volume of the urban jazz saga 'Cosmic sounds Remixed' brings together an interesting international team of electronic nu-jazzers who have undertaken the mission to further consequences than just adding beats and quirky sounds to the original pieces. Recommended for like minded crowds. Been playing it regularly on my 'Cooltronica' daily radio show and some freestyle dancefloors around. (7/10)
Favourite tracks: MFP Collective's 'Katorna' and Sinbad's 'Giant Locomotion'

VALANCHE STEWART @ urban landscapes
It's a terrific merging of classic jazz and modern sounds. The remixes, on the whole, are very respectful in keeping jazz at the forefront. Well done!

DJ PETKO @ B-92
