Columbian electronic producer / DJ Joint4Nine (Ivan Lozano) is poised to release his new 3-track EP with the arrival of ‘Gotta Have It’ out this March through Discotexas’ sister label Forbidden Cuts.
A groove laden, funk-tastic affair, the EP blends various genres to ear pleasing effect. Ivan says: “All these years I’ve been heavily infuenced by the eclectic and old school sound from the 70’s 80’s, and 90’s. For this new release called “Gotta have It” on Forbidden Cuts , I wanted to combine genres such as Hip Hop, Soul, Broken Beat, Jazz and House in three original tracks by sampling soul and Hip Hop vocal samples and adding different rhythms boxes, rhodes pianos, warm synths and groovy electric basslines, which were recorded by my label mate Jonathan Lopez a.k.a Jonahlo”.
