It’s one of the most interesting hook-ups in modern house music, and it’s yielded an album that will tickle ears and tease bodies for some time to come. They may live well over 10 000km apart, but the beat brotherhood between UK house legend Atjazz and SA’s most promising young producer, Jullian Gomes, is clear to hear.

Their collaborative album ‘The Gift The Curse’, blends Martin “Atjazz” Iveson’s deft and experienced touch with the Gomes’s keen modern ear for soulful tech. Throw in vocal cameos from the likes of Osunlade, Robert Owens, Wumni, Zano and more and you have a forward-thinking, funky-as-hell long-player.

Pretoria-born Jullian Gomes grew up alongside a record junkie of an older Cousin in Michael G (together they’ve recorded as G.Family — and picked up a SAMA nomination) and was absorbing the midtempo sounds of Tshwane’s vibrant club scene before he was a teenager. Little wonder he graduated to represent South Africa at the Red Bull Music Academy in London in 2011, had a subsequent smash hit with “Love Song 28” (also remixed by Ewan Pearson and Charles Webster) and ended up remixing Black Coffee, The Layabouts and Omar. But it was an unsolicited remix of Atjazz featuring Robert Owens “Love Someone” that caught the ear of Iveson.

Anyone with a passing interest in house music has heard of Atjazz. The north-eastern Englander has been producing since the mid-90s, and is responsible for hundreds of remixes, including ones for Bob Sinclar, Jazzanova and SA’s own C.9ine. When he toured the country in 2011 he met Gomes at the infamous House 22 in Sunnyside, and the two struck up a relationship that’s been blossoming ever since. The two ended up collaborating on “Overshadowed” in 2012, and the working experience and success it achieved leads to this transcontinental hook-up.

Gomes explains that the title of the album refers to the fact that with every setback, there’s an opening. It could also sum up the cross-continental span that the two have bridged to create something this special. Enthusiasm meets experience; Tshwane meets Derby; youthful endeavour meets well-honed aptitude. It’s a marriage made in heaven that makes for an album blessed with magical overtones. A landmark that sets the local beat bench extremely high.

Atjazz Record Company wish you a very happy and healthy 2014 and also our warmest thanks for your continued support. x

This year we’ll be bringing you a plethora of amazing music, in the form of many artist albums and new imprint output. Atjazz will launch his new label “Less than 10” early this year focusing on ideas rather than large studio sound, he’ll also be dropping his new long player under his real name ‘Martin Iveson’ entitled ‘Galaxy Aart’. More from Martin with his collaboration with Si Tew as ‘Mist Works’, their album Network has been ‘almost finished’ for over 3 years and now it’s hatching from its incubation state, stay tuned for more on this very interesting project. Si Tew’s well anticipated 2nd album is set for release late April and South Africa’s ‘Thee Gobbs’ will be dropping his Debut album early summer. Let us not forget the other guys as they have also been working hard completing projects, DJ Tipz & TrueSelf both have debut albums released this year and these full length artist albums contain some of the deepest and sensual dance music we’ve ever heard and last but not least we welcome sir ‘Jullian Gomes’ to the family with brand new remixes of his classic ‘Love Song 28’. A lot to get through yes, but an incredible sound set for you to get your ears into. First up though before any of this hits the streets is the digital release of the fantastic album from Atjazz & Jullian Gomes ‘The Gift The Curse’, also Brandy’s ‘The Ritual’ including the secretive Atjazz Galaxy Aart Dub so keep your pennies in your pockets for a few more weeks as this year is #arcoyear #abitwordy #letsgetdancing #atjazz
