David Piccioni [...]David Piccioni formed Azuli in 1990 while working in Black Market Records in Soho London (which he owns with Nicky Blackmarket). After being a DJ in The World, Red Zone and Mars in New York in the late Eighties Dave made good use of his knowledge of the House scene. Utilising the wealth of demos that customers would bring into the shop looking for elusive record deals, he created an outlet for 'American' sounding house that were few and far between in the UK at the time. David simply agreed to press the records up and sell them out of a few independent shops, and thus Azuli was born.
Azuli has been committed to releasing quality underground dance music ever since, and almost by accident has grown into a company that has supplied hits for almost every major label in the UK, hits including David Morales - 'Needing You', D'Menace's 'Spank', Indo's 'R U Sleeping'. As managing director and head of A&R, David still specialises in sourcing talent at its earliest stage and manages to bring together both established producers and new new talent. -- Azuli website, Feb 2004

Nightmares On Wax - Brothers On The Side Dub
Nightmares On Wax aka George Evelyn is an extremely talented individual. His personal productions Car Boot Soul and Smokers Delight are very essential downtempo but funky, laid-back albums. His DJ Kicks compilation, which blends hip-hop, jazz, breakbeat and chill-out grooves is the perfect companion for late night chilling. The latest instalment of the Late Night series provides an even better, more relaxing, subtle yet funkier alternative to DJ Kicks. It is truly impressive. How else can I describe the beautiful music contained in this collection? Filled with downtempo or mid-tempo Funk, Soul, Jazz, Hip-Hop, Dub, Reggae, Breaks, Electro elements throughout this mix, this is THE ultimate album to hit your stereo, while chilling with your friends.
From the chilled-out NOW remix of "Gravy Train" to the amazingly funky "Sneakin In The Back", from the dub-like "Show Me Some Love" to the spaced-out "California Suite", from the ideal-for-smoking "Action Tape 1" to the groovy "Spooky", from the full-on-beat "Bout That Time" to the sweet-vocal "Having Your Fun" you cannot miss for buying this album. And the cover version of Cymande's "Brothers On The Side Dub" is excellent.
The mixing is probably the best in the Late Night series with every tune effortlessly blended with each other, offering the smoothest transitions. And with a track selection almost impeccable this latest instalment is as good as (if not better) than Rae & Christian's Another Late Night (my personal favourite). I would strongly suggest that you start collecting the Late Night series if you are thinking about it, and if you have already then there is no doubt that you will buy this one. I already can't wait for dub-reggae masters Sly & Robbie's next Late Night release. ---An Amazon.com Customer
