Jeff Özdemir & Friends, the latest record from multi-talented Jeff Özdemir, arrives on the scene as a fierce medley of genres, filled with both solo efforts and collaborative hits. Özdemir, not only the founding member of Faruk Green but also head of 33rpm Records and owner of 33rpm Store (an independent record shop in Berlin), channels sounds from all over the world, calling upon his friends to help him out. Listeners will be hard-pressed to find a track they don’t like. This record is packed with variety — jazz, indie, pop, synth, guitar, funk — it’s all there. When the record’s been played all the way through, keep an eye out for volume two.
