Serious flavor from the UK n’ just in time for Summer! GJs & Stutt Munx on the remix tip



Jocasta is a product of the soul, reggae and drum n’ bass melting pot that describes the music of Bristol, UK. When you also take into account that both of her parents are professional musicians with a jazz flavour, you begin to realize where Jo’s earliest influences came from. She simply had no choice; there was no way she couldn’t become a unique singer and songwriter. As her musical palette continued to evolve, further inspiration from icons such as Etta James, Ella Fitzgerald, Aretha Franklin, and even ska legends Madness all made a lasting impression on her. Which brings us to her debut release on MoreHouse, “Girls Are Evil.” The title sounds a lot harsher than the tune is intended to be. It’s part cheeky slapstick, and part retaliation to girls that simply love to bring you down. Jo’s fresh vocal & lyrical styling on “Girls” clearly tag her as ‘one to watch’. The package includes 5 uniquely different remixes, along with 3 instrumental versions (8 mixes in all) to satisfy a variety of musical tastes. Remixes come courtesy of MoHo’s own Groove Junkies, and UK star’s on the rise Stuttering Munx. In her own words Jocasta says - “Luckily the person I wrote this about has no idea it’s about them, which also makes me a little bit of a bitch and a hypocrite…but aren’t we all!” Girls truly are evil :-) Enjoy! TRACK DESCRIPTIONS Groove Junkies Classic Vox Evan & Parrish on the classic house tip. Tasty rhodes pads, rhythmic synths, lush strings, flute, sax, horn sections, live bass and crisp beats serve as a perfect backdrop to Jocasta’s quirky vocal. Strictly for the soulful heads. GJs Dislectrotek Mix & Dub Somethin’ different from the fellas. As the mix names imply, the music beds for these 2 remixes feature various elements of disco, a tinge of electro, and tech house. Quirky, funky and fresh best describes both mixes; with a more minimal vocal approach and different bass line offered on the dub. GJs Regga House Mix GJ’s pay homage to the original ‘ska’ version and house things up regga style incorporating elements from the OG. Replete with horn sections, sax, flute, live bass and driving afro/soca beats. Just in time for the pool & beach parties. Stuttering Munx Go Deep Mix Tim & Johnny show off their versatility and take a brief departure from their signature progressive tech house production style. The guys deliver a deep house gem that’s dark, brooding, and just plain nasty! Original Version Midtempo ska/pop at it’s very best. Fans of bands like No Doubt and even Ska pioneers, Madness will seek out this ‘feel good’ radio friendly nugget. Written by: Joanne McNab EARLY BUZZ Frankie Knuckles "I am really LOVING this."

The Groove Junkies Classic Vocal kicks off with a very strong vocal with a very unique sounding voice. This track has very catchy piano riffs and a brilliant Saxophone solo which sets this mix apart from the rest, this is ideal for the Lounge Bar scene around the world. Next is the Dislectrotech Mix, slightly tougher bass but with that same soul as in the Classic Mix, the vocals are stripped down and the sax isn’t present as much but it still has that edge. The Dislectrotech Dub does exactly what it says, deeper with less vocal but in a more repetitive way but it still works so well. The Regga House Mix is up next with an Afro Caribbean feel to it. This has a new feel and energy and even the vocal sounds different, you can just imagine this being played on steel drums with the wind pipes blowing away in the background. The last vocal workout is by new guys the Stuttering Munx. This is a very strong production with a slightly more mainroom sound, a tribal-edged version with some very nice loops and effects. It’s a very nice package ideal for those outdoor summer moments, and a big one for the Soulful vocal lovers and all the House heads. Enjoy with a nice cold beer.
