Nu Jazz (Music subgenre)
Nu jazz is a subgenre of electronic music that combines elements of jazz with the synthetic sounds of electronic music and appeared at the end of the 1990s. The genre is not precisely defined. Stylistically, influences from Brazilian music and Latin jazz can be observed, as well as a proximity to drum’n’bass.

Gondwana Records
Soul And Character
As a DJ and musician, Matthew Halsall became a label operator. Starting with a local focus on Manchester’s contemporary jazz scene, the trumpeter, composer and bandleader has since given his imprint Gondwana Records a fairly international focus. And stylistically, too, they are getting broader and broader. What the releases have in common, is »a sense of soul and character that, when you then face the artist in person, feels true and makes you feel a strong, deep connection between the person and the music«.
