Acid Jazz Duo Signs to Sunset Jazz Recordings

LR-60 & Mr. Moods are from in Texas and have now become the Sunset Jazz first acid jazz signing and what is the most innovative signing for the new jazz related record label.

The men behind the turntables are Skip Warren (LR-60) and Christian Denis (Mr. Moods). The acclaimed acid jazz act has secured a potential three album with Sunset Jazz and their debut album 'Coldest Memories' produced by the duo themselves, is set to hit stores on May 5, 2009.

Don Lichterman, the head of Sunset Jazz at Sunset Records commented on the deal by saying "Signing these guys is very important for the jazz label. They are some of the most talented musicians for this unique style of music. The label is determined to develop traditional styled jazz artists like Don Ward. And, we also want to work unique styles like acid jazz and trip hop music within the jazz format."

LR-60 was first noticed after turning over the entire self released debut album, "Coldest memories" with the Sunset A&R submittal tool. The acid jazz duo signed the deal with Sunset to release the debut CD worldwide through the Sunset Jazz record label. The A&R staff at Sunset heard the entire CD one time which then lead to the record deal for the Texas based band.

The full length album features the popular single, Mirage" and will be made available at stores all over the world on May 5th.
