detroits javonntte steps up for the next installment from earl jeffers melange label. ive been a big fan of this mans music for a few years now, so its an honour to have him bless the label with some gems, and be the first artist to be on the label other than myself.

a warm welcome to detroit producer javonntte for his first quintessentials release. javonntte has been releasing his blend of pure deep house quality for years and his how is club246 is another fine example of his great talent. so how is club246? first of all the title is an hommage to a club in detroit in 1996. and javonnttes interpretation of club246 is diverse! the opening track has a slight kerri chandler flair, whereas club246 is a pure pumping club tool for all you djs out there. the b-side goes deeper. worldmix is a slow, deep (hell yeah) and hip hopish low bpm groover, whereas citylights is a classic vocal deep house track. club246? proper house music all night long!
deep house sounds from a longtime fixture​, in the the detroit house scene (his earliest​, records date back to the late 90s). about time​, lets play house taps into the root of it all for an ep. five​, seriously deep and​, soulful cuts that are as tightly arranged​, as they​, are intuitive loose elastic clearly the product of a​, well-seasoned studio.
congratulations to brian “javonntte” garrett, who this year celebrates two decades releasing mind-expanding deep house gold. his first 12″, of 2018 sees him pop up on people of earth, a label that has previously delivered eps from such scene stalwarts as rick wade, patrice scott and kai alce. fittingly, garrett is in a nostalgic mood on opener “way back-, where his deep, dreamy and soul-flecked deep house groove is accompanied by a spoken word vocal reminiscing about the mid 1990s. elsewhere, “zodiac” wraps starbust motifs around a chunky, bass-heavy groove, “house joint” is a bumpin’ box jam rich in sturdy drum machine hits and swirling chords, and “boom house” is a slightly tougher workout that boasts beats worthy of derrick carter or dj sneak.
hardmatter returns after the success of their first record with five timeless cuts from detroit legend javonntte. after releases with kai alces ndatl and patrice scott’s sistrum recordings, the groove society ep finds javonntte on fine form, opening proceedings with the sultry soul of sometimes .
cant leave and groove society.....detroit take matters into deeper territory with their rolling groove and late night drive. on the flip side, reachin and heaven find the producer interweaving his classic vocals and live keys, wrapping up hm002 in his inimitible style.
what about this love is not only a famous larry heard song but now it s also a house music label. the first release sees the detroit outsider javonntte and the berliner-italian deep88 on a real underground raw house song, matching the detroit soul house with the rawness and liveness of the italian producer, creating an epic vocal track, something that could have been made in the golden age of house music. on the flip there s the melchior sultana treatment, a name that is rising release after release thanks to his works and nothing else, playing all the kinds of instruments and being able of using sequencers and drum machines creating a perfect balance between a real musician and a serious house producer, add to all this a deep88 remix and a javonntte amazing dub version and the watl01 is served. more to come.
javonntte may hail from detroit but his sound more naturally aligns with the likes of kai alce and that soulful, bumping atlanta vibe. this 12- for troubled kids makes for a perfect case in point, not least on killer opening track -walking in the rain- with its irrepressibly funky groove and on-point vocal turn. -yes house- takes things in a more stripped direction without compromising on warmth, while -united we dance- heads towards an even more club-ready approach full of booming bass and sharp swinging drums. that s just the a-side, and with even more soul-powered goodness spilling out of the flip, there can surely be few house heads out there that wouldn t find a loving home for this record.
detroit must be a magic city when you re a skilled producer, and javonntte is a loyal artist from the city and a pure example of what magic is in music producing. sounds of the city is happy to put out this 3 track ep dedicated to francea! after a wonderful ep on ndatl (we previously release some of the label s boss music in october), and another freshly release remarkable wax for sistrum, the ajazz producera choose to sit down with us and catch some of the best juice from his cellar to share with us. welcome javonnttea!
still riding high on the warm praises for his excellent, the musical stylings of… ep on ndatl, javonntte is welcomed with open arms into the sistrum family. bringing some chunk and a bit of funk, the mind over matter ep is a raw expression of detroit house music at its finest
ndatl muzik continues with musical stylings of..... javonntte rarely seen but often heard this talented artist has toured with aretha franklin, been featured on tracks with andrés, amp fiddler, blake baxter & has had some very rare and sought after releases on now defunct label noveau riche. now he returns to detroit his track based roots for a dancefloor stompin 12-. we start with keep bouncin which say it all in the title with a very familiar sample, chaka s revenge will have them screaming for more. the b side he gives us my life very reminiscent of early prescription days and rounds it off with heart strokin tune these words that should easily capture the ears of your constituents! so press play and dance to the musical stylings of.......
profound sound presents the various vol.1 featuring four tracks with there own individual atmosphere, owen jay s bipyramid stepping between the house and techno field, melchior sultana s paris keeping things deep, colkin and javonntte teaming up to deliver the stunning in my soul and deep88 goes old school acid with his u are a deaf man.
