In the studio with Derrick McKenzie and Nude Continuum

Added on Sunday 30 December 2007, 08:16 (GMT)

Over recent months Jamiroquai drummer Derrick McKenzie has been doing some work with Australian soul/funk band Nude Continuum.  Well, the band have just finished recording their debut album and this wasn't any ordinary recording - as Derrick did his playing (on two tracks) at the studios owned and run by ex-Jamiroquai trombonist Winston Rollins in London whereas the rest of the band were in Australia.

A news item on the Nude Continuum site writes... 

"We've finished tracking the album! We're finally done with the recording aspect of it. The process came to a close when Derrick Mckenzie tracked drums for us on 2 songs (Don't Stop the Beat and Mistake). They will be available to hear online soon, so stay tuned. He recorded them with Winston Rollins in his private facility - RedRoom Studios, Chiswick. Although we were still here on the Gold Coast, Australia, the magic of Skype allowed us to have a video link up and take part in the recording process. Needless to say Derrick's playing was fantastic, and Winston's recording was top shelf. You'll be able to hear the results soon."

If you want to see what goes on during the recording process there's an interesting recording of a Skype video conference with James and Freesia in Australia talking with Derrick and Winston and looking around Winston's London studio available now on YouTube.

Samples of the two tracks that Derrick/Winston worked on (Mistake and Don't Stop the Beat) and available to listen to at  The debut album, entitled "Nightclub of the Nudist" will be released in the coming months.
