Last year in June we decided to select for the 5th installment of Class In Session , an interesting artist known as Zig16 aka OZ . Oz (rest in peace man!) was a DJ/singer/producer from France, affiliated to U.K independent label Futuristica Music ( founded by Break Reform former member DJ/producer Simon Skolfield and focused on soul,jazz,hip-hop and experimental sounds) and member of Paris based group Electric Conversation. Finally we have the chance to introduce Oz solo project titled Beautiful EP, released via Futuristica Music and entirely produced by Simon Skolfield aka Simon S. As Simon says
Personally, this project has been one of my musical highlights as a producer for many reasons – the main being the opportunity to work so closely with Oz, a remarkable human being who was deeply loved by everyone who knew him.
The mini opus is not only a tribute to a friend and collaborator but Beautiful EP is a brilliant bequest of a bright artist blessed with an amazing voice able to take the listener to another world where jazz,soul,hip-hop laid back sonorities coexist to offer a peaceful state of mind. Beautiful EP includes a delightful treatment remix finely assembled by one of the most refined,intelligent,creative and gifted producer at international level (in our humble opinion) who goes by the name of Evan Jones aka Mecca:83
