Stonebridge – Jazzy John’s Freestyle Dub (#4)
|Stonebridge||Jazzy John's Freestyle Dub||Zoom Music|
Published by : Rondo Music Licensed from Swemix
This falls into the rare category of a downbeat record that both house DJs and beat fiends played in the early 90s, its crossed the musical boundaries when DJs would warm crowds and take them on journeys through genres. Heavy breaks and funk samples put together sublimely – it just oozes style! Zoom (a London label) licensed this record from a Swedish organisation founded in the mid 80s called Swemix (also known as Remixed Records) with Stonebridge (real name Sten Hailstrom) being one of the partners in the label. Swemix remixed club records for the DJ’s (without the megamix approach of DMC) and their story is really interesting if you follow DJ history, check it here. Stonebridge has moved onto commercial house music notoriety (including “that” Robin S – Show Me Love mix) and his remix list reads like a who’s who of pop. This slowdown gem doesn’t even feature in his discography so I can certainly confirm it is a LOST RECORD!
Is this a Lost Record: YES. Completely!
