Joe Claussell presents SPRITUAL INSURRECTION mixes & JE KA JO (Wild Horn Dub)

Joe Claussell's returns to Ibadan with his signature brand of harmonious House.

Throughout his career, Joe Claussell has always been considered one of the House artists who puts true musicianship, soul and culture at the forefront of his music. His take on House has inspired many to inject the pure human feeling and spirit into the world of computer-integrated music. Spiritual Insurrection is another step in his never-ending quest for that perfect sound.

A1. is claimed by Spiritual Insurrection (Party Version). A hypnotic conga rhythm is the meat and potatoes, which make this one an essential party tool. However, the most memorable element of this track are the dreamy pads and freestyle keyboard workout.

Spiritual Insurrection (Afro Joe Mix), on A2., does what the title says, by delving deep into Joe's African roots. Yoruba congas and drums cascade along the thumping New York House beats, while Afro-Brazilian percussion, flutes and whistles fill out the mix.

The first track of the B-Side, Je Ka Jo (Wild Horn Dub) Pulls out all the stops with two live percussionists as well as violin, cello and saxophone performances. An exceptional and impressive piece of music, that goes beyond the standard realms of House.

The B2., contains the beat-less – yet euphoric – Spiritual Insurrection (Innerchild). Joe takes the pads from the original and makes them the focal point, creating a brief soundtrack to the reminiscence and celebration of youth.

Spiritual Insurrection, set the pace for the sound that would define Joe over the years. One of his most timeless records in what was already an impressive resume.
