Sonar Kollektiv Orchester: Guaranteed Niceness [Sonar Kollektiv]

Sonar Kollektiv really know how to celebrate because here’s another way to celebrate 10 years in business: yes, it continues into 2008. They got 15 label artists and friends, led by Volker Meitz, to create the Sonar Kollektiv Orchester. This was another good excuse to go through the back catalogue and produce some cracking new versions of the anthems we all know and love, so giving them a new breath of life. Tracks that got me hooked on the first few plays were the covers of Meitz’s "Africa", Thief’s "Atlantic" and of course the five Jazzanova tracks. Volker has done himself proud, but, with such good material, he was never going to fail. Whilst you’re waiting for the official release, do check out this wonderful video of their live session at the Tabe Club Festival: http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x3jtw8_tabe-club-festival-sk-orchester-200_music
