Released On: Feb 27, 2009
Released By: Jazz&Milk Recordings
For his debut album Keep It Raw Jazz&Milk labelfounder Dusty has invited several jazz musicians into the studio, including the great voice of Carla Vallet, a jazz singer with a multicultural background who has already worked with artists like Monday Michiru, Mondo Grosso and DJ Krush. Be sure check the eclectic sounds throughout this melodic record. It is the perfect amalgamation of live musicians and modern productions, making this album much more than just a collection of exciting tracks for the club.
Influenced by a wide range of musical styles like Funk, Jazz, Afro and Latin, Dusty has created a unique sound that combines all of them extremely well. Tracks like "Rhythmo", "Just An Illusion" or "Keep It Raw" have already featured on compilations like Brazilectro, This Is DJ's Choice on the Unique imprint, as well as Sony BMG's Kulturkantine - Contemporary Jazz Lounge Sessions.
The vinyl samplers of Keep It Raw, which included an amazing remix EP (with remixes by Solo Moderna, Romanowski, Watch TV and Vono Box), got massive support from DJs and radio stations worldwide.
