  • Jaga Jazzist will mark their 20th birthday with a deluxe reissue of A Livingroom Hush, due out on December 16th. The Norwegian collective, currently an eight piece, was started back in 1994 by the Horntveth brothers in the small town of Tønsberg. They're known for their ambitious live performances and sprawling, creative take on electronic music, infused with jazz sensibilities and a penchant for improvisation. Rather than a full career retrospective, their two-decade celebration, '94-'14, instead focuses on 2001's A Livingroom Hush which is generally considered their breakthrough and most important record. Ninja Tune will handle the hefty reissue, which features the full album on vinyl along with four unreleased demos from the same session as bonus digital tracks. Two extra 12-inches offer eight new remixes, including contributions from Machinedrum, Teebs, Illum Sphere and Clark, whose remix of "Bananfluer Overalt" is up for streaming below. Finally, there's also a booklet with photos and liner notes from All About Jazz's John Kelman.
