Dem Juju Poets is the new alias of prolific German DJ and producer David Hanke aka Renegades Of Jazz and will henceforth be the primary outlet for his afro-driven music. As a taste of what’s to come Dem Juju Poets has released two irresistible singles on French label Radio Krimi Records, combining his various influences into a unique and original blend of irresistible afro-funk.
“Voodoo Jazz” begins with an uptempo beat and raw guitar riff, later moving towards a jazzier mood with voodoo influences, a touch of electronics and additional scat. B-side “Watusi Fever” is a slice of magnetic afro-jazz enriched by superb drum lines and Hugo Kant‘s unmistakable flute skills.
Watch out as Dem Juju Poets claims his rightful place in the afro-funk stratosphere!
