Rocksteady Disco is extremely excited to release this multi-faceted EP from one of American dance music's most prolific musical minds: JKriv. First up, is 'Aguaxire'- a deep Afro-Brazilian house cut in praise of the Yoruban orisha Oya. Full of moody Detroit-style pads, driving percussion, acid basslines, live trumpet (performed by Escort mainstay Nathan Warner), and an expertly plucked sample, this 9 minute odyssey is crafted for ecstatic dance floor use. Moving to the B side, we hear J rework the musica popular brasileira classic 'Ive Brussel' into a pool-side day party anthem, complete with a full overdub of the bassline by J with his Fender Jazz bass. Following that is a traditional deejay edit of 'Deep Cove View', a breezy and chilled out Brazilian jazz fusion cut with plenty of piano, slap bass, and vocal scatting. J flexes his production, performance, and arrangement prowess here, delivering 3 tracks ready for the party, the after hours, or the after-after hours.

Aguaxire: JKriv plays the Juno 106, Roland SH-101, Minimoog Model D, MPC3000, horn arrangement; Nathan Warner plays the trumpets
Ive Brussel: JKriv plays the Fender Jazz Bass, Maschine; Rob Dipietro plays the surdo, tamborim; Diogo Strausz plays the atabaque
Mastered by Pontchartrain
