bet.e & stef It's All Right (double CD, £11.50)label: Compost
Beautiful heart-warming music, often compared to Koop, Sade, or Victor Davies. Groundbreaking global pop duo Bet.e & Stef reunite with “It’s All Right”. Their Platinum-sellers hits are all here on CD1, first time out in Europe, while CD2 enlist top remixers like Richard Dorfmeister, Louie Vega, Nicola Conte, Nickodemus, King Britt, Rainer Trueby, Andy Caldwell a.m.o. Bet.e & Stef took the country by storm over a decade ago with their pop meets jazz, bossa-nova and Latin stylings. Remarkably, they earned a Gold record in Canada with their self-released first album, "Jazz Bossa Nova". A deal with Japan's Toshiba-EMI soon followed, along with interest from every major record label in Canada. This JUNO-nominated duo from Montréal, Québec chose to partner with Universal Music Canada achieving Platinum with their second album, "Day By Day". Both milestones were even more remarkable given their global, multilingual sound was a far cry from the pop music du jour. Numerous sold-out performances at the Montreal International Jazz Festival earned them critical acclaim that took them beyond borders. Radio success in Québec, across Canada, and in Japan followed with their hit singles ''Day By Day'' and ''It's All Right'' spending weeks at the top of the charts. In 2003, Bet.e and Stef began exploring solo careers, respectively releasing ''b.coming''' and ''In From the Cold.'' After a 10 year hiatus Bet.e & Stef have now reunited, bringing Montreal DJ and producer Mike “FU” Fresco into the mix for their new project. “It’s All Right” is a limited edition set showcasing the timeless and universal appeal of their music with an impressive range of sounds including: World, Jazz, Brazilian, Lounge, Chillout, Deep House, Nujazz, Electronica, Downtempo and Latin... It features over 2 hours of new songs, rarities and remixes of select works from Bet.e & Stef's catalogue by world-renowned producers, DJs and remixers including Grammy-Award winners Louie Vega and King Britt (Digable Planets), Grammy- nominated Andy Caldwell, Blue Note recording artists Nicola Conte and Buscemi, Thievery Corporation's ESL label artist Nickodemus, Canadian sensations The Lost Fingers and many more world-class talents.
