ANTHONY NICHOLSON - DIRTYDISCOJAZZFUNK 12" (JAZZ DIARIES)
2020 was a huge year for The Jazz Diaries imprint. We're excited to enter 2021 in strong form with our latest signing, legendary Chicago based producer Anthony Nicholson! Having released records since 1992 (under a plethora of aliases), Anthony’s discography is one of the most respected and sought after collections in dance music. Once again taking on his given name, the ‘DirtyDiscoJazzFunk EP’ sees Anthony channeling his undeniable talent for creating mind expanding, groove driven house music, alongside some truly impressive musicianship. Anthony explains: “I try to create this music with the intentions of inspiring a soloist to deliver a honest performance when they’re playing on the track. The arrangement sets the tone. In the case of this track (DirtyDiscoJazzFunk), it sounds relentlessly funky." Throughout the 12”, high energy, tape-saturated drums meet fusion licks and swirling Rhodes/Wurlitzer pianos, as synth stabs and a rock solid rhythm section steadily work the compositions in a heady dancefloor-moving frenzy.
