JACK & JOINTZ
release: April 7, 2017
A story that only can be written due to the internet. 2 German producers based in 2 different towns met on Facebook. Quincy Jointz from Freiburg is one of the leading German producers and DJs of NuFunk. He combines 70s Funk feelings with Hip Hop flavors with today’s sounds. He is known worldwide for his music, remixes and the successful „Lime Sorbet compilations“. As he was searching for newcomer producers for the „Lime Sorbet compilation vol. 5“, and made contact with Thorsten Walter (based near Stuttgart).
Finally, they met for the first time in person during the summer of 2015 at a DJ-gig at the legendary “Waldsee-Club” in Freiburg and decided to work on a new music project together.
They were searching for a singer for one of the jazzy, discoid House-tunes. Quincy worked up courage to ask one of his favorite singers to cooperate: Ashley Slater. Everybody knows his 90s hit “Turn on, tune in, cop out” from his band Freak Power (together with Norman Cook aka Fatboy Slim). This ended up kick-starting the first track towards this album, with other tracks coming thick and fast, they asked vocalists, Scarlett Quinn (Kitten & the Hip), Red Star Lion (Dub Pistols), Judith Menner and Nadine Petry to sing on the album.
