In the mid ‘90’s, UK artist Martin Iveson aka Atjazz found himself in the middle of a burgeoning Midlands dance scene quite by accident.  Drawn to Derby from the North East for his day job (Iveson produces music and sound effects for some of the worlds leading computer games including Tomb Raider) he soon started to look to dance music as another creative outlet.  He began recording under the Atjazz guise in 1996 (named after an episode of the cartoon “TopCat”), and released his first EP “Story” that same year on Mantis Recordings (www.mantis-recordings.com), a label Iveson set up with record shop manager Andy McCandless

This downbeat gem (“Story”) brought him to the attention of Nottingham’s DIY who went on to release several Atjazz twelves over the next few years, including his debut album That Something.  The album was picked up by Sony Japan and hit a nerve with music lovers across the globe.  This attention brought Iveson/Atjazz remix work from labels such as Naked Music, and Japan’s Flower Records, as well as artists Charles Webster, Miguel Migs, and Bob Sinclair for Yellow Productions.

After Atjazz’s successful work with DIY, partners Iveson and McCandless resurrected Mantis Recordings in 1998 for Atjazz’s musical output and that of their friends.  The first track to be released in two years was Atjazz’s “Fifth Quarter”, which found it’s way into the hefty boxes of Terry Francis, Kenny Hawkes, and Luke Solomon.

Working with various local musicians on his productions, he found he was linking up with one guy in particular, Pete Wraight.  Pete had been writing and playing live with Charles Webster’s Presence project and more recently on Herbert’s new album.  Pete, a pure jazzman, was the perfect collaborator for Atjazz and as Labfunk took shape it became clear that he was firmly on board for the duration.

LabFunk is a term Martin Iveson and Andy McCandless use to describe music that isn’t quite “pure this or pure that” but is instead quite simply something else.  A perfect label for this series of tracks from Atjazz; new musical genre or just a great album?  Either way Labfunk should be remembered!


Release Date: February 5, 2002.
