This Journey In

Kajmere Sound Rec

Released: 5th May 2005 | 11 track album
NOT AVAILABLE FOR JAPAN Check out the full article on Rebirth in Mays edition of IDJ magazine! Kajmere Sound proudly releases the full-length album, This Journey In, from L.A.-based septet, The Rebirth in national and international territories this spring 2005. In this compelling new 11-track album recorded in the band's hometown, The Rebirth matches its musical vitality with a gift for lucid poetry and songwriting, creating a rich sound built on an organic blend of new and traditional soul, hip-hop, jazz, and funk. These elements make the group's music both highly progressive and a throwback to the classic soul bands like: Earth, Wind & Fire, Ramp, Pleasure, Rotary Connection, Side Effect and Roy Ayers. Over the last few years, The Rebirth has celebrated the successes of several smashing singles: 'This Journey In,' 'Every Body Say Yeah,' 'Got Your Madness,' and their critically acclaimed cover of The Might Ryders? 'Evil Vibrations.' The release of 'This Journey In' quickly garnered airplay on radio stations from Los Angeles to the U.K. and Japan, and appeared on numerous CD's including: King Britt's Black to the Future, Gilles Peterson's Trust the DJ 9 and the Norman Jay MBE compilation entitled Giant 45. In addition, Gilles Peterson included the song on his list of '20 Best in 2003? and Norman Jay called it, 'The anthem of the summer 2003.' Poignant tracks that appear on This Journey In include 'Shake It,' a catchy mid-tempo jam that encourages one to feel uninhibited about getting out to the dance floor to simply let loose and enjoy the moment. You'll find a healthy dose of smooth dance songs with a funky base lines, straight up funk and disco-Brazilian inspired songs?'
"You get the feeling that Rebirth are here to stay for a long time to come and could do for soul music what acts like Breakestra, Quantic Soul Orchestra and New Mastersounds have done for funk."
Steve Nickolls, IDJ Magazine
