Press Release :
EP 5 contains four classic tracks from Northern Europe compiled by the master distiller Jacques Laverne with a rare 2003 vintage.

First up on the A side are Beatphreak who are the self proclaimed breakbeat and bass junkies are Jason Holmes DJ and Producer and Django Programmer engineer. Beatphreak are based up in Lancaster have DJ'd throughout the UK and Europe including 333 and have represented the Fat City crew for many years. They construct a mixture of turntablism, funky breaks and DJ sets mixing up crispy cuts and fat bass licks digging in the crates of hip hop and funks rich history. Jason Holmes has been a regular DJ at Manchester's Friends and Family club and Beatphreak remixed Case 358 by Ben Horn on the last release from Jacques Laverne.

We are delighted that they are releasing 'Gospel Nights' and 'Soul Power' with us and they have also added a chunky remix for the B side. On the flip side are Danish based Blue Foundation with their rare and unique blend of dark massive beats and deep abstract soundscapes. Blue Foundation are Tobi, Kir, Bo Rande, Japanese DJ Tatsuki and slam poet MC Jabber. 'Bassment' is a haunting instrumental, where as track 2 'Old days' is a more uptempo affair which would grace any dancefloor.

Blue Foundation have released material before on April records and Moshi Moshi and were part of the infamous 'Jack To Phono' release which launched Jacques Laverne Records back in 2001 with the track 'Abstract Movement part 2'. Back in the native Denmark they are very well established and have played Roskilde Festival and were also touring Japan back in 2001 with big praise from DJ Krush and the Kyoto Jazz Massive. They have been part of the Scandinavian skate scene for the last five years and DJ Tatsuki is currently on tour in Japan - Both Beatphreak and Blue Foundation have been guests of the Copenhagen's 'influx' parties on more than one occasion which makes this release all the more sweeter!

This is the fifth EP in the series and follows 'Jack to Phono', 'Folklore and Fairytale', 'The Currymints' and 'Adventures In Aural Pleasures'. This release will lead into the CD compilation in the the near future. The past EPs have been supported by the likes of Andy Weatherall, Groove Armarda, Mr Scruff, Rob Da Bank, Chris Coco, Quantic, Rob Luis, XFM and Bonobo so not bad then!
