It’d be a crime to sleep on this mix. As we learned from Abel Ferrara’s King of New York , when real criminal kingpins wanna relax they go to the night club to see Mr. Freddie Jackson . The smooth sounds rounded up here are right up that alley, an hour’s worth of thief themes and gangsta movie samples perfect for sudsy time in the jacuzzi.
Says Blood Money: Everyone needs their own theme music, including cold blooded killers, psychopathic gangsters and hitmen for hire.
Enter Blood Money, a duo made up of R&B music maestro TOBES (taking a break from his Sparkle Motion duties) and the always impressive crate digger DJ Wax On – who give us Nighttime Gangster Jazz: Music for Smooth Criminals , a 60 minute mix of ’70s & ’80s mellow jazz grooves that provide a soundtrack to the most illegal of nocturnal activities.
From familiar classics to golden obscurities, library gems to soundtrack rarities, take a trip through a loaded barrel-full of deadly tracks… all interspersed with classic gangster movie dialogue. Play this one only at night, and keep an eye over your shoulder when you do.
