An electronic music collective from Berlin, producing music with influences from jazz, house, triphop, drum&bass, funk and more. Founded in 1995.

The group consists of the Jazzanova DJ Team (J├╝rgen von Knoblauch, Alexander Barck, Claas Brieler) along with producers Kosma (Roskow Kretschmann) and Extended Spirit (Stefan Leisering and Axel Reinemer).

In 1997 Jazzanova teamed up with Michael Reinboth of Compost Records. Together they formed a new label imaginatively titled Jazzanova Compost Records (JCR) in winter 1998. The collective is also involved with the Dialog, No Zession, Airdrops and Clockworks labels.

In addition to releasing their own music, Jazzanova has also remixed artists such as Ian Pooley and 4 Hero. They have also been resident DJs on the radio station MDR Sputnik's Clubzone show.

Update - February 6, 2000

Jazzanova recently released a compilation called The Remixes 1997-2000 on JCR, offering 2.5 hours of the group's reworks from the 3-year period, with classics like their remix of Soul Bossa Trio's Words of Love. I urge everybody to get a copy of this brilliant record now.
