Cazz Ear and Natasha Kitty Katt were both raised separately on a diet of rare soul, funk, boogie and disco. Jazz also played a part in their respective histories – Cazz Ear toured with a 3-piece Jazz band all over Central Europe whilst Natasha was heavily influenced by her jazz musician Grandfather. Together they decided to create something that accentuated that vibe but with a modern twist. This is the background to “Birthday Of Blackness” - inspired by both Nina Simone and current, global social unrest – capturing the essence of Nina and enveloping it into a dancefloor track.
The Club mix is jumping whilst the Lounge mix is more laid back - emphasizing the Nina Simone spoken word element.
