New QuanticFifth Exotic (180 gram pressing with download) ... LP
Tru Thoughts (UK), 2001. New Copy 2 LPs (reissue).... $15.99 17.98
Wonderfully beat-heavy work by Quantic – a wicked mix of classic elements and lots of funky roots – but served up in a leaner, cleaner style overall! The approach is a bit more produced than the live work of Quantic – almost in the early Ninja Tune mode – mixing together spare elements of funky tunes with a slightly abstract edge. But the set's also got a life of its own, as some of the tracks have the group taking off a bit more, and showing they've got a more soulful side to express. Titles include "Common Knowledge", "The 5th Exotic", "Infinite Regression", "Life In The Rain", "Long Road Ahead", "Meaning", "In The Key Of Blue", and "Time Is The Enemy". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes digital download.)

New Quantic & Alice Russell with Combo BarbaroI'd Cry (7" edit)/Here Again (teardrop-shaped blue vinyl pressing) ... 12-inch
Tru Thoughts, 2013. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
Here's a package that you'll never get as a download – a really unique tear-shaped piece of light blue vinyl – pressed up in supremely limited quantities! The tune "I'd Cry" is more than worth the price of admission alone – a sweetly soulful number with great vocals by Alice Russell – and these cool keys that tipple along with sort of Stax Records vibe. "Here Again" is a bit more funky – with soaring strings alongside the grooves – and Russell's vocals soar even more, really reminding us again why she's one of the best of the contemporary funky soul divas! 12-inch, Vinyl record

New Quantic & Alice RussellLook Around The Corner ... CD
Tru Thoughts (UK), 2012. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
Mindblowing stuff – maybe the deepest album we've heard so far from Quantic, and a great step forward for Alice Russell too! After years of working in some of the best contemporary funk modes around, Quantic really expands his vision here – hitting a level of maturity that brings in richer arrangements with bits of strings and other righteous touches – all in a vibe that feels just like the Cadet studios at the end of the 60s! The approach is great – because at the bottom, Quantic's still got all his sharp funky edges intact – mixed in with these swirling soulful arrangements that Charles Stepney would have been proud of – all coming together in a mode that unlocks this whole new side in Alice Russell too – a vibe that's almost Stevie Wonder-ish at times, which really fits perfectly with the grooves. Sublime sounds throughout – a true instant classic – with titles that include "Magdalena", "Here Again", "Travelling Song", "I'll Keep A Light In My Window", "Look Around The Corner", "Su Suzy", "Boogaloo 33", "Road To Islay", and "Similau".

Los Miticos Del RitmoLos Miticos Del Ritmo ... CD
Soundway (UK), 2012. New Copy Gatefold .... $15.99
The first-ever new recording on the Soundway label – and a honey of a session produced by Quantic at his Colombian studios! The sound here is very classic – raw percussion, sharp-edged saxes, and even a bit of accordion from Quantic himself – all wrapped up in a blend that's a mix of older Colombian modes with some slightly more offbeat touches – not just in the way the instrumentation is used, but in the choice of music, too. The set features covers of material by Michael Jackson and Queen – but it's far from gimmicky, as it's got lots of original numbers too – really great music that evokes a time past, but with a 21st Century ear – that great sense of new appreciation for Latin cultures that we've been getting from groove diggers of late! Titles include "Fabiola", "Noche De Tamborito", "Cumbia De Mochilla", "Willy's Merengue", "Samaria", "Otro Muerde El Polvo", "Satta Massa Cumbia", and "No Pares Hasta Tener Lo Suficiente". CD

New Poets Of RhythmPractice What You Preach ... LP
Daptone, 1993. New Copy .... $12.99 14.98
Deep deep funk from The Poets Of Rhythm – and a record cut at a time when all the world thought classic funk was dead! Apart from a few revivalist albums by older artists at the time, deep funk was plenty hard to come by at the start of the 90s – and often mis-recorded or badly mixed when it was tracked down. Enter The Poets, one of the first newer groups with a strong ear for the sound of the funky 45 generation – heard here in a rare full length set that presents the group in all their glory! The combo's got an approach to funk that mixes guitar, horns, and heavy drums with some slightly more psychedelic production – sometimes abstracting things slightly, in a mode that would be used much more heavily by the Quantic/Tru Thoughts camp in years to come. Most of the tracks on this set could easily pass for lost 45s from the early 70s – no surprise, given that the group was often putting out "fake" old cuts at the time – but the record proudly presents The Poets at their early best, with a smoking endorsement from Bobby Byrd to boot! Titles include "More Mess On My Thing", "Funky Runthrough (parts 1 & 2)", "Choking On A Piece Of Meat", "Saltin The Soup", "It Came Over Me", "Strokin The Grits", and "North Carolina".

Whitefield BrothersEarthology (LP sleeve edition) ... CD
Now Again, 2010. New Copy Gatefold .... $11.99 17.98
The long-awaited return of the Whitefield Brothers – melding global funk and tripped out psychedelia as masterfully as on their massive In The Raw album – and tripping it out and funking it up even more this time! The psychedelic sounds get more pronounced play this time out, but it's still well within the funk realm – gritty drums and percussion under fuzzed out rhythms, keys that range from a jazzy funk groove to thick layers of fuzz and bubbling atmospherics, exotic string accents, heady bass grooves and more. Their reach is global, too, with influences from the east and the west – and a heck of an impressive guest roster – with leftfield MCs on a couple gems – Edan & Mr Lif on "The Gift" and Percee P & MED on "Reverse" – plus Bajka, Brooklyn funk revival masters the El Michels Affair, and fellow psych funk traveller Quantic. Titles include "Joyful Exaltation", "Safari Strut", "Taisho", "Sad Nile", "Ntu", "Pamukkale", "Alin", "Breakin Through" feat El Michels Affair, "Sem Yelesh", "Lullaby For Lagos" feat Quantic, "Chich" and more. CD
(Comes in a nice gatefold booklike cover.)

New GreyboySoul Mosaic ... CD
Ubiquity, 2004. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
One of the most unified albums we've ever heard from Greyboy – an excellent little set that perfectly bridges his two loves of funk and hip hop! The core style is in the hip hop-infused mode of earlier years – with lots of programming and scratches by Greyboy himself – but there's also a larger collaborative feel to the record, with plenty of space for guests that include Sharon Jones, Bart Davenport, Quantic, D-Styles, and others. The whole thing's nicely chilled-out – never over the top in the beats and samples – but more kicked back, in a slow funk mode that makes for a rich album of tasty tracks throughout! Titles include "To Know You Is To Love You", "Awright", "Son-Ray", "Bronson", "See My Eyes", "Omega", "Genevieve", "Loggia", "Make Music", "Everyday Problem", "Big Tito", and "Got To Be A Love".
