Biography

The skills behind D*Note’s brand of jazz, rap & rare groove belong chiefly to Matt Winn (Matt Wienevski), who was helped by scratcher Charlie Lexton (Cool Breeze) & occasional keyboard player Matt Cooper (who records for Dorado in his own right as Outside). Their debut album housed the singles Now Is The Time, Bronx Bull, Scheme Of Things & The More I See, each of which enjoyed extremely good reviews in their original formats. Criminal Justice the 2nd album, built on the energy level of the debut & included stand out tracks like the title, Inquinity Worker and the monumental The Garden Of Earthly Delights with a stand out performance by vocalist Pamela Anderson, a regular on the first three albums, who for obvious reasons changed her name to PY Anderson later on.

Other collaborators on the 1st albums include Ceri Evans with whom Winn wrote the perenially popular Cafe Del Mar classic, ‘D*Votion’. (Sunship, singer Dee Major & rappers Navigator and Krazy Cool D-Zine.)

Anderson resurfaced on the third album, where Matt Winn developed even further his sophisticated attempt to combine classical and jazz harmony with the rhythms of drum and bass and break beats. It includes one of their best anthems, the moving Waiting Hopefully again starring Anderson. 4 Hero, Deep Dish, Danny Tenaglia and Joe Clausell graced the 12” versions with topnotch remixes.
