Jazzuelle’s music has a design of it’s own. Spiritual and imaginative.

Not at all what you would expect to be delivered by a young South Africa producer with his heart in dance music!.

Jazzuelle is a gentle and humble soul who dives to great depths where others fear to go. Inaugural EP is true artwork in it’s naked form, and with your eyes closed this wonderful music guarantees to create beautiful images for it is loaded with imagination. I for one ‘Martin Atjazz’ am seriously taken a back with this entire release and wanted to write about this awesome work myself as it has really touched my soul.


My choice cuts from the EP are Birth Of Venus, Dark Arts, and also Belverdere Café. All of the offerings on the EP are amazing but these three for my tastes really jumped out at me. You will find influences from far and wide within this collection and even fans of Steve Reich, Bonobo, Motorbass & J Dilla are going to love the diversity of this wonderful collection of songs.

“I’m very proud to have this record on my label, it’s not often once receives this amount of imagination in one hit” Atjazz
