£8.50 + VAT

Keyser & Shuriken

(Tibor Mozsik and Gábor Vályi) – accompanied by Ambrus Tövisházi aka Erik Sumo they are known as the Crate Soul Brothers dj/producer collective – have been DJing together for more than seven years. Their love for good, soulful music and old school breaks has driven them in the last few years to promoting the culture of sonic delights in Budapest and from New York to Sarajevo – wherever they get a chance to play. During the years they've spent behind the decks they have built reputation in the worldwide scene as fanatic record collectors and selectors of old and new jazz, bossa breaks, rare grooves, funk, afro beat, latin jazz and a wide selection of chilled out and more dancefloor-oriented sounds from the past and present. They have a two hours live show on the legendary non-profit Radio Tilos every Thursday. Their eclectic menu can be accessed around the world on http://blog.tilos.hu/cratesoul. Their rarely-made tunes and remixes have been regularly played by Gilles Peterson, Patrick Forge, the Jazzanova, Rainer Trüby, Nicola Conte and Tom Wieland among many other respected djs.
This compilation is about 70s funky fusion with a lot of groove. If this is what you are after then every track here is the winner. Some of the big names from the Hungarian scene at that time, like Gabor Szabo, haven’t been included because they were building their careers abroad. This compilation is concentrated just on Hungarian releases. With this selection you will get not just the section through Hungarian rare records and the part of jazz history from that country that you can enjoy listening at home but also a nice selection for your DJ bag if you are into jazz dance and funky fusion. Some of the tunes like Dimenzio’s Bamba already has conquered the club scene and were reworked and sampled by trendy DJs and producers.

SIMON HARRISON @ basic soul
excellent as always. Played them out and of course the heads came running :-)

SAMMY GOULBOURNE @ the other side
Someone’s upset the nice folks at Cosmic Sounds, cos they’re about to open 2 cans of Hungarian ‘whoopass’ on an unsuspecting public! These tracks easily equal and in some ways surpass tracks on those first Cosmic Sounds 'Rare Gems' compilations - and make no mistake, they were massive! Just try and stop me playing all the tracks…
STEVE WILLIAMS @ ukvibe.org
When you think you have touched every coner of the music along comes this unbelievable product.  My ears are honoured.


ENNIO STYLES @ stylin'
Lots of my favourite Hungarian jazz tunes on these, and plenty more that I've never heard before. I should just give these tracklistings to my Hungarian record dealer as a wants list! Tom Wieland and the Crate Soul Brothers prove themselves to be deep collectors as well as great producers and DJs. I've played quite a few of these tunes on Stylin now: Theme of Ahmed Jamal, Behind the Csitari Mountains, Kemenysepro and Bamba.

PAUL GAMBLIN @ black & blue
We have just barely touched the surface in finding and acquiring beautiful music from planet Earth.  It is always a pleasure to be diggin' and discover or unearth a gem from a country that you know little about, or how the music (in this case Jazz - Latin/Soulful/Funky Jazz folks) played such a crucial part in releasing a feeling of "free expression" that you and I probably always took for granted.  Listen to these two albums, check how some of the standards and classics we love, are interpreted, changed and rearranged - again.  These cats from Hungry had somethin' going on back in the day and I'm seriously grateful to be hearing these artists for the first time.

Excellent comp!

JAZZ MAN @ jazzfusion.co.uk
The excelent Hungarian jazz scene with this compilation of mainly 60s rareness on London's Cosmic Sounds. Great stuff, keep it coming. Jazz Man
GREG VICKERS, Hamilton, Ontario
This one has definite emphasis on the funk and soul aspects blending heavily in the palette. bouncy organ and keys, groovy bass, even some latin-styled percussion. check the sublime caper-style funk on BERGENDY's 'blue light', or the full-blown latin jazz stylings on the JÁNOS GONDA SEXTET's 'afro-cuban'. other highlights include the bullfighting homage of ANDOR KOVÁCS 'olé' (is he lifting a bit of 'jesus christ superstar' in there?) and the laid-back flute and keyboard flirtation on the DEBRECAN JAZZ GROUP's 'stroll in debrecan'. hungary has it going on ... not only the best looking women in the world, but some of the grooviest tunes you're likely to hear
