Description

Take a deep and colourful dubfunkijazzical journey in the quest to discover the truth behind the galaxy’s most elusive and mysterious icon, Kaptain Karnival! Deity, Confucius or downright cheeky monkey? Immerse yourself in an utterly unique musical-visual voyage as you seek to unravel the mystery behind this tantalising and symbolic enigma, worshipped and revered, mocked and mistrusted in equal measure.

This highly original 94-page, lavishly illustrated book includes a specially created musical soundtrack with an array of incredible musicians including Ben Castle (Quincy Jones, Elton John, Hans Zimmer, Radiohead) and Dominic Glover (Incognito, Primal Scream, Brand New Heavies, Orbital), recorded under his Jem Stone moniker: the kind of deep, hypnotic and delicious grooves Mr Panufnik is renowned for.

Quotes

Jem’s work leaps out at you. Whether it’s pouncing from the speaker or jumping off the canvas, there’s a vivid playfulness and sense of adventure across both of his disciplines. It’s very rare you see such artful dexterity in dance music culture.
Dave Jenkins (Broadcaster/Bandcamp Editorial/International DJ Mag)

Jem “Stone” Panufnik‘s contributions to the party movement never cease to inspire. He continues his joyously unpredictable groove assault with awesome graphics over a laid-back slab of fun-poking, swaggering beats. Predictably tasty.

Where do you start with Jem Panufnik?! Without a doubt one of the most talented and ground-breaking creatives I know. His musical legacy (even before you look at his family tree) took the world by storm and continues to resonate now. A true force of the art world, this incredible new album/book as expected is testament to his musical/visual passion.
Chris Bailey, Vi4YL/Ministry of Sound Radio.
