    // Jazzanova - Glow and Glare / Dance the Dance 12" - Sonar Kollektiv \\
    JCR is dead! Long live JCR! Jazzanova official killed off their JCR imprint
    with Compost Records at the start of 2004 to focus on their own Sonar
    Kollektiv label which has been turning out excellent future jazz nuggets for
    last 7 years. The first Jazzanova-related releases comes in the form of 2
    remixes by Atjazz and Ame (an upcoming SK artist). I was doggin' Atjazz
    pretty hard in one of my other reviews, but they show me up in style by
    recreating my least favorite cut from 'In Between' into a sparking jazzhouse
    gem. Most of the original elements are kept intact but the horn section and
    reprogrammed drums give the track a fresh, live feel. A good choice for
    transitioning into a house set. The Ame mix of Glow and Glare is the winner
    though. Booming kick drums, crispy-fried percussion, fuzzy analog organ
    stabs and hypnotic, synth swells stack up into a stomping,
    detroit-tech-house winner. This 12 should be hot with a variey of DJs and
    not just Jazzanova fans.
