Fat Jazzy Grooves #14

Various - Fat Jazzy Grooves Vol. 14
Label - New Breed
Released - 1996
Style - Future Jazz, Acid Jazz, Instrumental, Dope Beats, Hip-Hop

1 Nutsek - Mood
2 Beats Of San Francisco - Respect
3 Hustletron - Maximizer
4 The Prunes - Rashaan
5 I-Cue - Pass It Around
6 DJ Smash - Kikit

I'm not sure how many of these were actually released, but the Fat Jazzy Grooves series came out on New Breed in the mid-late 90s and they are so so dope. Lots of Downtempo/Future Jazz/Hip-Hop Instrumental beats. My favorite from this bunch is Hustletron's Maximizer because it reminds me of a tweaky Ultramarine groove. Great stuff!

Man, if Ultramarine is a reference point then check me in. Nuff respect.

wow,thanks... my friend used to have one of the earlier FJG comps, around 1992 when I was in college. You think you'll be getting any more?

XMP said...

Yes we've got some ultramarine around *somewhere*. Will have to find it. And yes, I definitely plan to find some more of these comps and post since there seems to be a bit of interest. Thanks!
