The Exotic Delight Bay' is packed with the temperature-raising flavours and rhythms that Azaxx soaked up on his recent travels in Brazil, stripped back and mixed with influences from old mambo and salsa records to modern breaks, jazz, liquid funk and Baltimore Club - and aimed straight for the dancefloor. This is French producer Azaxx's first album on Tru Thoughts (although his track "Fiesta Tropical" was featured on the 'Shapes 07:02' label compilation) but he is no stranger to acclaim – most notably for his track "Bahia", a funky breaks head-nodder which came out on Freddy Fresh's 45s label Howlin' Records. Hand-picked by electronica guru Fresh as one of his essential tracks of the moment, the "Bahia" 7" went on to nail the ultimate crossover seal of approval, being played on the John Peel Show. A native of Rennes in North-East France, Azaxx has long been a major player at the funkier end of the city's dance music scene, DJing drum 'n' bass and beats in the early days through to an eclectic cocktail of Latin beats, jazz, soul, funk, breakbeat, broken beat and '60s and '70s grooves. With a knack for working a dancefloor, he has manned the decks at clubs across Europe and as far afield as Brazil, and is a regular DJ at the major Trans Musicales Festival. In an excellent and intriguing addition to his CV, Azaxx has also produced records for the harpist Alan Stivell, one of the most respected players of traditional Celtic music from his native Brittany.
