Spinnerty grew up as a typical Midwestern kid getting shuttled around to soccer practice in the back seat of his parent’s car listening to The Beach Boys, Bruce Springsteen and Phil Collins. Somehow he found his start playing regularly in jazz bands from middle school through to college. “I loved the music,” Spinnerty says, “but sitting under fluorescent lights and playing tunes from sixty years ago seemed to be missing the point of the jazz movement historically. The natural next steps for Spinnerty were to get into the varieties of current music that were derived from jazz and connect the dots to the originators of this inspired genre.
This summer of 2010 Record Breakin’ Music is releasing Spinnerty’s latest production, Just Listen Pt. 1 & 2. “Just Listen Pt. 1” features John Robinson aka Lil’ Sci and on “Just Listen Pt. 2” we have the newcomer Jacqueline Marie on the vocals. Once word got out about these tracks, offers came in to remix the project and Frisco’s very own Funksta B. Bravo came through with a futuristic take on the boom bap vibe of Just Listen Pt. 1. Meanwhile, Dj Limbs put together a funk upbeat remix to Just Listen Pt. 2.
The remixes (released on vinyl as well as digital) will drop late June and I believe the ‘normal’ release is dropping later this month (digital only). To keep ya’ll hungry we’re streaming a low quality version of “Just Listen Pt. 2″ and we got this exclusive “Just Listen” promo mix from Spinnerty as a FREE download. Tracklist is coming up…after the jump.
