It’s the year 2016 and David Hanke, widely recognized under his moniker Renegades Of Jazz, is back with his third full-on longplay effort entitled ‘Moyo Wangu’.After his conceptual and darker approach to his last album ‘Paradise Lost’ released in 2015, we see Renegades Of Jazz explore the world of Afrofunk here, a world David Hanke is deeply linked to since he spent an influential part of his childhood in Arusha/Tanzania in the early 1980s…….hey do say that home is where the heart is and a large part of the heart of Renegades Of Jazz – a.k.a. David Hanke – seems to be very much still in Africa – because for new LP Moyo Wangu (Swahili for ‘my heart’) he becomes, to all intents and purposes, Renegades Of Afrofunk. But what could prompt such a departure from the dark, breakbeat blues of Luciferian-themed last album, Paradise Lost? You might as well ask where that idea came from as it was so different from ROJ’s ‘northern jazz’ debut Hip To The Jive. Clearly apart from a loose adherence to syncopated drum patterns, Hanke’s loyalty is not to generic boundaries but to excellent production. Since you asked though – it transpires that Hanke spent his early youth in Tanzania which has left such an abiding impression in his mind that’s he’s come up with these twelve tightly-composed and executed cuts.

It’s a mission in which our man has been ably aided and abetted on occasion by the likes of L.A. Jungle Fire on Harambee, producer and multi-instrumentalist and previous ROJ collaborator Hugo Kant (on the title track) and another producer and multi-instrumentalist – Ancient Astronauts’ Kabanjak on Zebra Talk. The vibe thoughout is resolutely upbeat and the tempos are too in the main, yielding the overall impression of a sweaty late night East African dancefloor. Highlights include the Fela-ish groove of previous single Afro Cookie, the pounding Moto Moto, and the aforementioned piccolo-led title track – though as with previous ROJ releases, it’s hard to isolate favourites because if you dig one, you’re likely to dig them all....~
As a resident DJ in Hamburg's Mojo Club, he focuses on a mix of soul, easy listening, jazz and mellow grooves. As a producer, the world of the Afrofunk is in the foreground. At least on "Moyo Wangu", the third album that David Hanke released under his alias Renegades Of Jazz. 
If you look at Hankes biography, then it quickly becomes clear that his Africa connection has a grown relationship. Since Hanke spent his childhood in Asusha, Tanzania, the African sound signatures and vibes were actually born in his cradle. 
Fortunately, this musical socialization has survived to this day: its downbeat project Renegades Of Funk, which alludes to Africa's Bambaataa's epochal electro classics, explores the interfaces between Afro and NuJazz in an extremely groovy way. While his last year's album "Paradise Lost" was still relatively conceptual and rigorous, Hanke's work in 2016 is much more exuberant and emotional. 
As the album title "Moyo Wangu" suggests, a Swahili term that translates to "my heart" means. ...~
