Virtual Insanity - A Jamiroquai Mega Mix


Today's upload is for all Jamirophiles, especially to my friends, Mixipod and Nel, both diehard Jay Kay fanatics including myself. This mix is for you guys. :)
Jamiroquai, composed of core members Jason "Jay" Kay and drummer, Derrick McKenzie, was the most prominent component of early-90s London-based acid jazz movement, alongside bands such as Incognito, The Brand New Heavies (also one of my faves in this genre), Galliano, Curduroy, Digable Planets, US3, Freak Power, Guru, The Brooklyn Funk Essentials, James Taylor Quartet, Urban Species, Groove Collective, and a lot more. Their lineup has changed several times with their style being described as new age funk and jazz.

With their growing popularity in Europe and the UK, they remained relatively unknown in the US, until their breakthrough with their third album, Travelling Without Moving (their best album for me personally) in 1996, which yielded two big hits, "Virtual Insanity" and "Cosmic Girl." (check out the destroyed Lambo :( )The success of the former was because of its innovative and unique video, which feature JK's cool moves and some gravity-defying images. For a sample, here's the clip... Enjoy!


Before I forget, would like to thank and give a shout out to Mixipod who was the one responsible for compiling all these great remixes and giving me the idea to do this JayKay MegaMix. Please visit her blog too for some cool and amazing remixes! :)
