JuJu recording the track ‘Djanfa Moja’ fast and live in the Wooden Studio at Real World

“We just came together, plugged in and played,” says Justin Adams of ‘In Trance’, a one-take marvel that begs repeated listening. “We played it exactly as we play it live. It was a bit like controlling a runaway horse – that is completely spooked!”

This is a short extract from the full fifteen-minute trance excursion whose lyrics tell of betrayal as it careens and wheels through a sonic landscape. “It’s raw and swinging and has that slightly distorted sheet-of-sound vibe that Moroccan artists like The Musicians of Jajouka have where everyone is doing their own little pushes and pulls and twists and twiddles and weaving this incredible sonic web.”

The debut album by JuJu will be available via Society of Sound later this month.

    As 99% of productions on Real World Records, this also is excellent! Superb sound and music.

    I have to disagree on this one. I didn’t purchase a subscription to SoS to download music I can get riding in a taxi for a few pounds.

  • NWB says:

    Great music, wonderful energetic performance. Definitely worth a listen

    Yes, I know B&W is about quality etc etc but please balance that with vids of a realistic size. I’m on a v fast broadband connection and it is taking aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaages

    Outstanding – in particular the last four tracks. I’d love to live in a place that had this as taxi music. I’d ride in them all day.
    B&W are to be congratulated on the variety of music in their portfolio – this and Portico Quartet are some of the best new musical experiences I’ve had in a while
