First Time Available on Wax
Shortly after Mark Farina befriended Derrick Carter in 1988 at a record store in Chicago, his passion for House music, and sharing it with the world, exploded. Mark experimented with a deeper style, dropping De La Soul, disco classics and other stuff that wasn’t being played in the main rooms of nightclubs. While exploring his love for the purist forms of House Music, Mark developed his trademark style: Mushroom Jazz; acid jazz infused with the West Coast’s jazzy, organic productions combined with urban beats.
Farina returns with the compilation that essentially put him on the music map nationwide. Now in its seventh installment, Mushroom Jazz lures fans once again. On MJ7, he creates a decades-worth of melodies, sounds, and inspiration. For the consummate fan (and the newly initiated), MJ7 features many of Farina’s Om label mates such as King Kooba ‘Bad Back’, Joshua Heath ‘More’, Colossus ‘Introduce/SLAP Mix’ and Uneaq ‘Just Move’.
