    Can anyone confirm that Moody's people were selling this record at DEMF 2012? I didnt recognize the sticker so I passed on it.....but now that blue little head is coming back to haunt me.

      only recently used it on a mix and one of the first ever records I bought from Vinyl Junkies RIP (Berwick St)....
      echoing all the thoughts here....my choice cut of probably all of the body of his work

          Possibly Kenny's best single, JAN is a certified dancefloor killer. The samples are from Detroit funk radio DJ Electrifyin Mojo's interview with Prince circa the Purple Rain tour. Kenny edited it up to make it sound like he was talking about him instead, which makes for a brilliant epic feeling for the track.

            "j.a.n." stands for Just Another Niggah, with reference to a track orginally recorded by Marvin Gaye, with whom kenny seems to source for many of his releases, both musical and for lable artwork. Other strong leanings towards the daddy of soul are "Sunday Morning" (when marvin was shot by his father), "Joy ptII" (from the orginal track by marvin), "Tribute" (samples "inner city blues"), and the list goes on. buy any Marvin album and spot the samples, its clear to see how a talent like Gaye can be such a huge influence and source of inspiration. respect, for without him what would us kdj heads have?

              Messy release history on this one - first slated to be KDJ 16 (and probably released on whites at the time, although I can't verify that), this record was pulled after the "controversy" over KDJ 15. It then appeared on a 200-copy white label, JAN 001, and got serious word of mouth that was encouraging enough to convince Kenny to press it here. It doesn't actually say "KDJ 30" in the matrices, but rather had that number invented for it by long-suffering Moodymann distributors.

                maybe the best moodyman release so far, begins with moodyman typical dissonant "deephouse" style and after 2/3 of the record twists into a more jazzy groove, comparable withe his remix for carl craig's "people make the world go round". hammmer!
