Where does JESTOFUNK come from : Since
the beginning, the project Jestofunk started with an International
view. The first single, "I'm gonna love you" (1992) received great
feedback from the Dj's, especially in the UK and US. The originality of
the sound immediately became the trade mark of the band. With the
second single, "Say it again" (1993), starts the collaboration with Ce
Ce Rogers, one of the most prestigious voices of the House scene in the
US, the single was licensed in different countries in Europe, and
specially in France became a great hit climbing the top of the charts.
The following year (1994), the third single, was released featuring
once again the powerful voice of Ce Ce Rogers, followed few months
later by the release of their first album "Love in a Black Dimention".
In 1999 CeCe Rogers decided to leave Jestofunk and start his own
project called CeCe Roger's Nuphunk.
The Music of JESTOFUNK : The
Groove is a perfect example of a fusion between the DJ style and the
live instrumentation, connected with the Afroamerican side of
contemporary music. Jestofunk arrives to this second album after a six
years itinerary through Jazz, Funk, Soul and the most experimental
sounds generated for the Dancefloor. Their music theorizes a Universal
language without boundaries, going back and forth from the most
hypnotic atmospheres to the contemporary sound.
"Love In A Black Dimention" An
irresistible mix of Funk, Soul, R&B and House music. Very special
guests are featured on the album : Fred Wesley, from the JB's, James
Brown sidekicks and Ce Ce Rogers.
