Overview: After his debut track “Messicho” on White Gardenia Vol.1, Dutch producer, photographer and drummer Robert Repko is ready to come back to release on Jazz-O-Tech with an adventurous jazzy trip, combining both acoustic and electronic vibrations. Future and past blend in a tribadelic mix of sexy, mystic and melancholic sounds, embedded in a transcendental feast of beats that characterize this 4 tracker EP called “Trop Fonk”.
Inspired by rhythmic based music, Duke Zilla was drawn to jazz, funk and african beats while playing as a drummer with different bands from an early age; by shifting to producing, he applied a more electronic feel as well as a luscious club element.His debut EP tells a cinematic like multi-layered story of space travelling in hypnotic soulful atmospheres. Always with a drum driven approach, providing the backdrop to imaginative underground sounds.
Jazz-o-Tech‘s is a new record label based between Berlin and Milan.The label‘s signature style is an elegant combination of improvisation, acoustic “live” sounds and electronic music grooves mixed between jazz and techno music, promoting experimentation and eliminating boundaries between two forms of avant-garde, electronic music and Jazz.
