Press Release :
Dirty jazz&bassmeisters zero dB continue their remix project with all the attack, élan, grit and sheer fun associated with their unique brand of club music.

Chris Vogado (one of the dBs and Mr. Fluid Ounce, the label that launched these boys back in 1999 with "Come Party") masterminded the remix album, "Heavyweight Gringos," released in 2007. Vogado approached 27 members of the Fluid Ounce Friends & Familia crew plus Ninja and Big Dada stablemates and laid the whole "Bongos, Bleeps & Basslines" album at their disposal. These heavyweight remixers plundered the dB drives and picked their perfect partners for the dance.

Featured here are mixes from:

PETER KRUDER (Kruder & Dorfmeister). The Austrian whizz took his opportunity to ruff up "Te Queiro" on this extended, building nine minute floor-filler. Previously only available as a download.

NWACHUKWU (Attica Blues then, CD-R founder now), found the soul in "Sunshine Lazy" (featuring Nouvelle Vague's quirky front girl Phoebe 'Killdeer' Tolmer) and did what only he can - extended it into one long, filtered, dubbed-out bruk joint. The result is a personal fave of Mr. fl.oz...

DAVE da GATO (Fluid Ounce's enigma with remixes for, Quantic, Javi Pez, Saffrolla, Far Out records and a release planned for 2008) marked his territory on "A Pomba Girou" before subjecting it to his feral ferocity and his Carnival licks... days later it was found with its batacada barely intact.

But that is not all (no, that is not all). We've saved the best till last. Leading out the single is zero dB's own rather marvellous remix of "Keep On" - a DJ Kentaro tune featuring the still-mighty Pharcyde. With a beat that crashes through your entire body and enough bass to run an international coarse fishing contest, what could make this better? Check the lyrics and you'll know...
