Part Seventy-Eight. Juju & Jordash met over a decade ago in Haifa. They each had their own lives going on at the time, but found one another through weekly be-bop jams, with Juju AKA Gal Aner on guitar and Jordash AKA Jordan Czamanski on piano. Throughout the 1990s, each played in and composed for various jazz and experimental combos by day and, by cover of night, dancing in clubs and experimented with electronic dance music.
J&J have released numerous EP, LPs and remixes since 2004 on record labels such as Dekmantel, Golf Channel Recordings, and on Workshop as Magic Mountain High, together with David Moufang (aka Move D), as well as several ambient, film soundtracks and multimedia projects. Their new EP will be out soon on Golf Channel.

FIVE SONGS YOU MUST HEAR THIS WEEK #78: JUJU & JORDASH
Taken from a superb 3 track EP (including a great collab with M. Pittman) , Howard Thomas lays down here an offbeat, psychedelic “ethnic” jam that really grabbed our full attention.
We mainly played live shows this year but when we did DJ this one seemed to never leave the bag. Never get sick of it…Machine punk? Machine funk!
HIEROGLYPHIC BEING-THE LOST TRANSMISSIONS
One of the few true artists…Jamal Moss is the boss. Everything he does is interesting and at the same time never sounding nerdy boring intellectual. Hard hitting. And on one of our favorite labels.
LEGOWELT-ON THE TIGER TRAIN
In a year full of overdriven 707′s and Chicago-esque basslines, Legowelt still stand out for us as a prolific, musical and original producer. Was hard to choose one track between this LP, his Sark Island Ep on LIES and more output as part of the great Chicago Shags Duo, as there are so many dope tunes…True Hero.
SUN LA SHAN-CATCH
Seems like we’ve chosen a lot of dark stuff..you gotta lighten things up sometimes. This one is a classic. It sounds amazing on a big system, will always kick the party up a notch.
