boozoo bajou revival

Satta, Dust My Broom… great names to special and delightful albums

Featuring producers Florian Seyberth and Peter Heider, Boozoo Bajou are a downbeat duo from Nuremberg, Germany known for blending inspirations like reggae, dub, Cajun music, folk, jazz, and pop.

They first appeared in 1998 via the Stereo Deluxe label and the single “Night Over Manaus.” The exotic lounge number drew the attention of Richard Dorfmeister, who hired the duo to remix “Chocolate Elvis,” a 1999 single from Dorfmeister and Rupert Huber’s project, Tosca.

That same year, Bajou’s jazzy single “Under My Sensi” became the chill-out tune of choice. It landed on their 2001 debut Satta! a dub-meets-electronica effort suitably named after the Jamaican Patois term for “relax.”

No surprise, then, that their 2003 mix CD Juke Joint skillfully blended Groove ArmadaBurnt FriedmanGregory IsaacsPaul Weller, and John Lee Hooker, or that the same year’s Remixes collection found them working with names like CommonMousse T., and Thievery Corporation.

Their sophomore release, Dust My Broom, landed in 2005 with country-rock hero Tony Joe White appearing on the single “Keep Going,” while Jamaican deejay U-Brown traded lines with Fat Freddy’s Drop singer Joe Dukie on the track “Take It Slow.”

Actually… Take it Slow is one of the great songs of Dust My Broom!

Night from Manaus from Satta takes back to great memories of Lisbon and my first days and nights spent with Ana!

have a look at the lyrics…

Take it Slow

Late and lovely ease your mind
For your hand is not needed here tonight
Feel your heart beat slow it down
While there’s no need to rush
So stop thinking of things to do
Steal a moment, take a few
Sit back and enjoy the view
You got to learn how to loose control
Time for change the brief
I give you love like you give to me
When in your mind you say ready
But in your heart you say take it slow
You got to take it slow, take it slow
Late and lovely i’m for you
You can do what you want with me it’s true
Sing your song play your tune
I’ll just want you to know how much you means so
So stop thinking of things to…
Stayin’ up all night
This could be a party
I’ve got some friends outside
Lookin’ for a good time
You better head my way
This is where it’s starting
No rules, no laws, no gifts tonight
You’ve gotta stay
Hey girl, hold me tight
Ooo, the night ain’t over
Hey girl, hit that light
Ooo, the night ain’t over
I’m stayin’ up all night
This could a showdown
I’ve got this thing inside
Tellin’ me, don’t run and hide
And there’s so many roads
Only you can go down
Don’t close your eyes
There just might be another way
Hey girl, hold me tight
Ooo, the night ain’t over
Hey girl, hit that light
Ooo, the night ain’t over
Ooo, I might be losin’ my soul
Life’s only fun when it’s dangerous
And I don’t wanna be told
I won’t play safe and start growin’ old
It’s five in the mornin’
I can feel…
