Pepe Deluxe: Finnish 'Beautitude'

Published: 2003-12-11
Finnish musicians Pepe Deluxe – JA Jazz and James Spectrum – give a whole new meaning to burying yourself in your work. The duo worked 10 hours a day putting together the 19 tracks for their newest release "Beautitude". It took them three years to complete the CD. JA Jazz freely admits to having no musical training; in fact, he doesn't know how to play any instruments at all. The whole process for creating the songs that go on a CD is trial and error until they find what works. If that weren't hard enough, the duo work on every song at the same time instead of one at a time. "There's no vacation from Pepe," said Jazz. "We get inspiration from everything."
