· Also in the box are two crisp 12”s featuring exclusive reworks based on elements from the album ‘Jaga Jazzist Live With Britten Sinfonia’ from a stellar cast of remixers: Warp Records stalwart Clark; breakbeat scientist Machinedrum;
Brainfeeder’s sonic dreamweaver Teebs; Mellowdrone founder Jonathan Bates aka Big Black Delta; LA-based composer, orchestrator, conductor, multi-instrumentalist and producer Miguel Atwood-Ferguson (‘Cosmogramma’, ‘You’re Dead’, ‘Suite For Ma Dukes’, ‘Build An Ark’); Werkdiscs’ rising star Moiré; Hoya:Hoya co-founder Illum Sphere; Stockholm’s Invader Ace.
· Extended sleevenotes by John Kelman (All About Jazz) come in a beautiful 24 page booklet with archive photography documenting the rise and rise of this iconic collective.
· It’s hard to believe that the Norwegian 8-piece band Jaga Jazzist (founded on the Horntveth triumvirate - Lars, Martin and Line) are celebrating their 20th anniversary this year, in 2014. Not that there aren’t other groups that have lasted as long but look for a group whose primary composer was just 14 when the whole thing began, find a band where five out of its eight current members were there when everything started in 1994 and scope out one that has managed to remain as stylistically enigmatic and impossible to categorise.
