Sonar Kollectiv Set to Release V.A. Beats, Bites & Öxle in late May

RAINER TRÃœBY is a man of passions and a fountain of knowledge. His encounter with the JAZZANOVA crew in the early 90s has been a lucky and fruitful one. RAINER TRÃœBY shared with them his erudition in music from old jazz classics and house rarities to the newest music productions.

Musicians and DJs such as DIE FANTASTISCHEN 4 or BBC 1’s radio legend GILLES PETERSON also gained a lot from working with him. RAINER TRÜBY made himself a name with many successful projects such as the Abstract Jazz Journey mixes for the label King Street Sound, the sampler series Glücklich on Compost and of course with the famous band TRÜBY TRIO that he formed with his friends CHRISTIAN PROMMER and ROLAND APPEL.

Not only RAINER did spread his enthusiasm about music, he also passed on his other big passion to the JAZZANOVA team i.e. his love for good wine. In 2004 he started to organize the famous Beats and Öxle exhibitions in Freiburg at Waldsee Inn. Every new exhibition has been and still is the occasion for him to share his love for wine in a nice musical atmosphere and to present the best bottles that the wineries of his region can offer.
The question of „which wine for which dish“ became a hot topic of conversation between RAINER and JAZZANOVA. Instinctively RAINER got himself involved in the making of Homecooking last year with his personal wine tips for the first cookbook of Sonar Kollektiv. And this year they imagined and created this new book called Beats, Bites and Öxle for both finest gourmets and music connoisseurs, where the savour of a delicious dish meets the flavour of a tasteful wine.

They selected together 6 vineyards from the region of Baden–Württemberg in the Southwest of Germany. In the book each winemaker presents his vineyard, 2 of his favourite traditional recipes as well as the bottle of wine that accompanies this moment of gustative pleasure to the perfection.

Sonar Kollektiv puts the cherry on the cake with an assorted selection of their best tunes from their favourite artists. CHRISTIAN PROMMER’s DRUMLESSON, SLOPE and EXTENDED SPIRIT with Solid Water retouched by TRÃœBY TRIO set up a very warm jazzy-ambient vibe.

This compilation also highlights Sonar Kollektiv’s most soulful artists such as 1LUV or GEORG LEVIN with Leisure Suit. ISOUL8 goes a little bit uptempo with Give It Up and CLARA HILL & VIKTER DUPLAIX keep up this pace with the groovy and seductive Paper Chase. Of course JAZZANOVA is featured in the selection with a live version of That Night featuring CLARA HILL recorded in the Sonar Kollektiv office.

The presence of Like a Rainbow by NOMUMBAH is the extra spice of this musical dish. This tune, which is released for the first time, is a beautiful deep house cover version of a song by the fusion-jazz band AMANITA that can be found on the Sonar Kollektiv Brazilian music compilation Paz e Futebol .

EVA BE completes the picture with She walks alone as presented on her recent album Moving Without Traveling on Sonar Kollektiv’ s sub-label Best Seven.

With Beats, Bites and Öxle Sonar Kollektiv multiplies the pleasures once again, so lay the table and leave the rest to your hosts JAZZANOVA and RAINER TRÜBY.
