The world of Jason (Jay) Kay, Jamiroquai’s uncrowned king of summer funk, is inhabited by cosmic girls, electronic mistresses and space cowboys. People drive in fast cars and gradually everybody becomes virtually insane. These are just a few of the subjects of glowing songs that tickle our fantasy. This has been like this since 1993, when the eccentric British singer and band leader Jay Kay, who was born in West London, made a major breakthrough with his alarm-bell ringing CD Emergency on Planet Earth
. And now, more than 12 years later, Jamiroquai
have made, notwithstanding the fact that also in music the times have been changing, a balanced development. On his latest CD Dynamite
Kay and his band present a glowing melting pot of funk, soul, jazz, disco, fresh pop and crispy dance beats.
