Greetings from RealDEEP Recordings,
We hope your summer has been as amazing as ours! We've been doing it up all season long, from summer music festivals to backyard BBQ's and the beach...we've had our fill! But, with these last, hot days of summer lying lazily at our doorstep, we feel it's finally time for us to wash off the sand & suntan lotion, freshen up a bit and head back-to-school, so RealDEEP is here with your 6am wake-up call! Take your finger off that snooze button! ...cuz you won't want to sleep on this. Black Jazz presents "UBIZO - The Calling".

With a worthy collection of solo projects already topping the RealDEEP charts under their monikers Apple Jazz & Arnold Tempo, this South African posse has now united under the placard of Black Jazz to bring us a blazing new 5-track EP entitled "UBIZO - The Calling" [RDR015].
Like a fog horn cutting through a gray gloom of ordinariness comes "City Streets". Stabbing synths and sultry vocals snips meet murky bass-lines and swinging beats, capturing the deep house of yesteryear and reminiscent of early Prescription. Pacing the tempo and warming the vibe is "My Version". Rich chords are underscored by a deep, resonant bass-line, riding fleecy strings & dubby vocals. Riding the heels of this groove into even sweeter & sexier territory is another beautiful tune entitled "Moon Face". Like the clear, twinkling of moonlight on a pensive, starlit night, "Moon Face" brightens the spirits. Pensive keys and haunting female vocals are paced by gridded beats & plunky percussion, lifted even higher by swirling synths and bright leads. Clearing the hump and dropping even deeper is "Patience", a Larry Heard-esque orchestrated masterpiece of soundscapes and rhythms. Cinematic yet soulful. Lifting us out of the depths and recharging the speakers is "Extraordinary Sense". Clean, driving beats and hovering tones keep your mind locked in full REM while sentenced synth stabs and spoken word preach their message. Black Jazz presents "UBIZO - The Calling".
