Family Reunion 2019


  • RA PICK
  • 52 hours of house, disco, funk, Brazilian tunes and much more at the former grain mill.
  • Family Reunion second edition with two exclusive live shows in Paris & Berlin followed by a 52h journey in the Berlin former grain mill. ////// Over the week, J.A.W presents 3 significant live shows in collaboration with reference label Sound Signature, with the crew acting as our artists in residence over the weekend in Griessmuehle. Black Jazz Records was founded as an alternative to traditional forms of jazz including funk, free jazz and soul, bringing a fresh alternative that embodied the spirit of the black/urban awakening of the civil rights period. The label's music became popular through samples used by hip-hop artists such as Ice Cube or A Tribe Called Quest. The releases remain fan favourites amongst Djs, producers & record collectors worldwide and are widely considered spiritual jazz Anthems. The artists of the label have never played together before, and never in Europe. Theo Parrish & Nicole Misha will open the stage with selected records. Leroy Burgess is a NYC born and raised multi-instrumentalist, singer, producer, arranger and composer whose impact on the history of dance music, from the birth of house to the founding of boogie & disco, is beyond measure. Ask producers such as Theo Parrish himself, Larry Heard, Ron Trent, Dam Funk, Spinna, Little Louie Vega or Motor City Drum Ensemble what they think about the man. J.A.W invites long-time & new friends to celebrate new ventures in Griessmuehle from Friday night until early hours of Monday. Sound Signature as our artists in residence, extended sets from Theo Parrish and Mr Scruff, as well as specials sets from the likes of John Gómez, Marcellus Pittman, San Soda or Tone B. Nimble.
