Victim of Love
He’s the belated world champion of soul and starts out his second record, where he has left it with »No Time For Dreaming«. And he even goes beyond.

»Antibalas« is pervaded with magical melodies from the soul of the 60s and the feverish heat of African percussion. It still manages to not get entrapped in ethno-Jazz or other styles of that sort.

Daft Punk – Homework (1997)
In 1997, the French duo Daft Punk released their debut album »Homework« and since then have had an almost unprecedented career. At that time, the album was not yet mainstream, but creaky, crackling house music.

Jazz is more hip than it has been for a long time. The output is large, the return mediocre. But with »Natten« Kopenhagen’s Bremer/McCoy deliver a fantastic work.
