Logjammin’ 08 – The summer mix

↘↘↘ Jackie Treehorn & Black Belt Jones present “Logjammin’ 08”

Phew! We’ve been pretty busy with this one, you can believe it …
The annual Logjammin’-compilation is always something special for us. The first Logjammin’ back in 1999 was like the forefather of all TwoTeam compilation to come, made by Jackie Treehorn for BBQing at Jones’ place. Since then, many beers died, crates grew, people became fastidious and the Logjammin’-series is no one man show any longer.
Logjammin’ 07 was the starting point of both our collaboration and www-campaign and one of the best summer mixes ever created. So it was hard for us to top it, again compiling a broad variety of the hottest music and creating a fitting cover mirroring as much summer spirit as possible while making you smile. After finishing that and solving some technical issues, we are really proud to present you another milestone: Logjammin’ 08!

We hope you like it as much as we do.

Partners In Krime OST

Let’s continue with the real Treehorn deal! After the incredible impact of Booze Connection OST, hopes had grown really high, so Jackie Treehorn decided in 2004 to invite the legendary Lord Fuck to add some tracks. He didn’t hesitate and grabbed some great vinyls from his crates, which perfectly matched the rest and made Partners In Krime OST an adaquate successor. Listen to “Wah Wah Man” catching the vibe straight outta his bedroom, while the outstanding “Gatur Bait” should not be missing when driving the infamous battleship-grey Lord Fuck mobile. So together with Treehorn’s choices – sure shots like “Synthetic Substitution”, “The Champ”, “Hung Up” and “Iron Leg” next to special edited percussion gems like “Got Myself A Good Man” and “Funky Fast Bump” – and packed into another great Treehorn design, the flair of guns, cars and girls is taken to the top again. Enjoy!

Across 21st Gaudystreet OST

Posted in Mixes with tags , , , , , , , on Friday, 2008-03-21 by Black Belt Jones








Let’s jump into 2004! Treehorn moved to Berlin a few years ago. In 2004 it was the first time that Jones visited his partner in the Treehorn-mansion. After this 72-hour-beer-drinkin’-contest between Jones & Treehorn (easy to guess who won) the funk-contest had to continue as well. Determined not to waste any time, Black Belt started to work on a new compilation to digest all experienced (…before Treehorn could). Based on the Blaxploitation-flick “Across 110th Street” (superb soundtrack & the movie itself is maybe one of the best of its genre) the name of the new counterstrike was quickly found: “Across 21st Gaudystreet”. The cover with black mustache & dark sunglasses shows the differences to other compilations: fewer of Blaxploitation more of Poliziotteschi. Featuring the all-time-favorite-composers ‘Guido & Maurizio deAngelis’, the incredible ‘Orchestra Ambros Seelos’ or the interesting ‘I Gres’, to name but a few examples for funky European music. Meanwhile, it was usual to give every song a dramaturgic edit, to mix it up & to create a convincing artwork. So enjoy the next big hit by Black Belt Jones. Don’t miss the nice “Fania All Stars Edit”, the extraordinary sound of “Airto Fogo” or the got-to-have-that-record-funk of Ramsey & Co.’s “Love Call”. The icing on the cake is the special guest appearance by “K” a.k.a. Klaus Kinski, who’s got some warm German words for all of us. And please bear with some self-given titles, but my Italian is not as good as my Swahili…
