Contactmusic caught up with GURU and Solar in London recently to talk about the Jazzmatazz history, live shows and the future for 7 grand records.

Guru has been pushing Hip Hop in an organic direction fused with Jazz and real lyrical conciousness for over 20 years now.

His Jazzmatazz records have brought together some of the biggest talents in both Jazz and Hip Hop to create his signature sound.

This man is a living legend! GURU is still doing it hard and now he has super producer Solar on board these guys are taking the Jazzmatazz concept to dizzy new heights.

Guru's Jazzmatazz Back To The Future Mix CD is the "raw" companion to the Jazzmatazz Vol. 4 album. The Mix CD carefully and superbly crafted by Superproducer Solar to exhibit that "Golden Era" New York essence along with a cutting edge futuristic twist! Hence the title, "Back To The Future".

The tracks are pure "bangers" and the guest appearances are classic as they compliment Guru's iconic yet streetwise vocals. There are features from artists such as Common, Damian Marley, Aceyalone and Zion I from the West Coast, Blue Scholars from Seattle, Mr. Lif from Boston, Yungun from London, as well as legends Lord Tariq from the Bronx.

This is no ordinary Mix CD as it is hosted by the Mix Tape King himself DJ DooWop who also "spits fire" on a couple of "joints"! This is indeed another Jazzmatazz classic that's sure to make the REAL heads nod!
