New VariousBrownswood Electric – Presented By Gilles Peterson ... CD
Brownswood (UK), 2010. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Electronic music with soul from a variety of contempory artists – compiled by Alex Stevenson of Patchwork Pirates and material with the personal endorsement of the Gilles Peterson – featuring truly exceptional stuff by B Brova, Mosca, 16bit, Hypno, George Fitzgerald and more! Brownswood Electr*c is a fresh step in highlighting worthy modern artists, a venture not unlike the great Brownswood Bubblers sets. It's material from the from the electronic underground, nicely utilizing materials pioneered in club groove styles, genres and scenes over the years – club soul, dubstep, drum & bass, broken beat, etc – but the stuff here dodges pigeonhole or easy categorization. Excellent stuff – a real win for team Brownswood! 15 tracks in all: "Computa Love" by B Bravo, "Wad" by Pearson Sound, "Square One" by Mosca, "Over The Top" by Hypno, "Painted Jezebel" by George Fitzgerald, "BB Thing" by KiEnRa, "Underpass" by Rockwell, "Serged" by Mount Kimble, "Lady In Red (Club Edit)" by Clueless and more.

New VariousBrownswood Electric 4 ... CD
Brownswood (UK), 2014. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A solid entry in the Brownswood Electric series – this one compiled by Alex Stevenson – and featuring a hypnotic batch of abstract electro-steeped cuts by an up-and-coming roster of underground talent! The thing we love most about the series is the forum it gives some truly unbridled creative spirits out there – from artists/combos to beatmakers/producers – who defy trends and deftly mix styles. The selections feature elements of classic and futuristic house, footwork, tripped out hip hop, club soul and well beyond. Volume 4 is heavy on the instrumentals, but it's not without some moody vocal turns – and the tracks include "Shoulda Known (GANZ Remix)" by Louis Fulton, "Radiated Light" by Nikitch, "L" by Monk, "We Killed Our Probation Worker" by Glenn Astro, "Breakdown" by Deft, "Green Eyes" by Adam Elemental bfeat Ravdeep Singh, "Rollercoaster" by Feral, "Four Days Alone" by B Lewis, "Youth Group" by Brrd and more.

New VariousBrownswood Electric Vol 2 – Presented By Gilles Peterson ... CD
Brownswood (UK), 2011. Used Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Brownswood follows up their justly acclaimed Brownswood Electric with a second volume – synth and beats driven grooves with a human pulse – once again upping the ante on contemporary electronic grooves!

New VariousBrownswood Bubblers Vol 7 – Compiled By Gilles Peterson ... CD
Brownswood (UK), 2011. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Lucky Seven in the Gilles Peterson's Brownswood Bubblers series – hand-picked modern soul, tripped out electronic grooves, glitchy clubby psych and otherwise top shelve, avant yet accessible groovers – with tracks by The Stepkids, Jon Phonics, Ivy Chanel, KING, Ratcliffe, Tanya Auclair, Ntjam Rosie and more! One thing we've dug about the series-to-date, including this one, is that as diverse as the material is, and as willfully uncategorizable it is, there's a shared devotion to real songs rather than mere atmospherics – and it's strong stuff all the through. Includes "The One" by Jon Phonics, "Thrum", "La La" by Stepkids, "Shoot The Ducks To Win" by Stealing Sheep, "Sensitive" by Cleveland & Ahmed, "Water No Enemy" by Tall Black Man, "Hey" by King, "Belleville" by The Park, "Mindset" by Ratcliffe and more.

New VariousBrownswood Bubblers Vol 8 – Compiled By Gilles Peterson ... CD
Brownswood (UK), 2012. New Copy Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Gilles Peterson does it again – and proves that he's still got one of the best ears around for choosing new music! Even after seven previous volumes, the Bubblers series is still plenty darn incredible – a great place for getting a taste of the best of the contemporary underground – those amazing artists that Gilles always features on his BBC show – always hand-picked, and chosen without any consideration for commercial directions – as you'll hear on the really revolutionary music in the package. There's a nicely laidback vibe this time around – a reminder of Peterson's tastes for more acoustic and jazz-based modes – and some of the tunes almost echo some of the rootsier music that Brownswood has recorded in recent years, too. Titles include "Volver" by Ana Tijoux, "She Was Out In The Water" by One Little Plane, "Crush" by Hello Skinny, "Linha De Frente" by Criolo, "Again" by Def Sound, "Manchild" by Haydn, and "Bout You" by Rainy Milo.

AnoushkaBroken Circuit ... CD
Brownswood (UK), 2014. New Copy ... $15.99 17.98
Anoushka's a duo, as you might have guessed from the image on the cover – and a great one at that, with these sublime spacey soul vocals from Victoria Port, mixed with her own keyboards and more beats and keys from Max Wheeler! The music's got a lean quality, but also soars with a cosmic sense of soul – just the right sort of vibe to ensure the group's placement on Gilles Peterson's Brownswood Records – with a groundbreaking 21st Century Soul feel throughout! Victoria's got a style that's charming, but never cloying – and which will hook you in right away – and titles include "I Have Love 4 You", "Impatient", "Never Can Decide", "Atom Bombs", "Echo", "Kisses", "Broken Circuit", and "Fire To Me".

AnushkaDistorted Air EP (with download) ... 12-inch
Brownswood (UK), 2014. New Copy ... $12.99 14.98
A nice little spacey club soul EP on Brownswood – actually the duo of singer/songwriter Victoria Port and producer Max Wheeler – and it's very promising stuff! Brownswood has a been a vital source for burgeoning progressive dancefloor talent for years now, and the depth continues to impress! Speaking of depth, Anushka stands out here thanks to deeper song-based level. The bubbling electro soul vibe is easy enough to get lost on a club or headphones level, but there's just defter, song-based vibe here. It get over even better thanks to Victoria's beautiful voice. Titles include "Broken Circuit", "Atom Bombs", "World In This Room" and "Blessing". 12-inch, Vinyl record

Jose JamesBlack Magic ... CD
Brownswood (UK), 2010. New Copy ... $15.99
A brilliant second set from Jose James – and that's saying a lot, given that his debut was already a classic in our book! The sound here is a little more full, and a little more confident – a magical blend of James' raspy vocals with some jazz and funk-inflected rhythms – never overdone, and all put together with the kind of poise and depth that's made Jose an artist to watch since his very first single! There's a positive, progressive vibe to the whole record – the kind of excitement we only feel grabbing us once in a blue moon – and the sound is expanded a bit from the laidback combo of the first record, thanks to production help from Flying Lotus, Mitsu The Beats, and others. But James' vocals are always center stage in the mix, no matter what the setting – and titles include "Lay You Down", "Touch", "Promise In Love", "Warrior", "Made For Love", "Code", "Save Your Love For Me", "Detroit Loveletter", and "Beauty".

New Zara McFarlaneIf You Knew Her ... CD
Brownswood (UK), 2013. New Copy ... $13.99
An even better album than Zara McFarlane's debut – and a record that lets us dig even deeper into the wonderful world of her vocals! The instrumentation here is mostly stripped down – usually just a bit of percussion, bass, or piano – used as sparingly here as on some of Jose James' early work for the Brownswood label – material that would be a great comparison for Zara's approach here, as the style is a really personal blend of jazz roots, contemporary soul phrasing, and individual musical vision! Most lyrics are McFarlane's own – spun out warmly and without any sense of cliche or overdone phrasing – and even when she turns to songs by others, she really finds a way to make them all her own. Titles include "Open Heart", "Her Eyes", "Move", "You'll Get Me In Trouble", "Plain Gold Ring", "Woman In The Olive Groves", "Love", and "Angie La La". CD

Owiny Sigoma BandPower Punch ... CD
Brownswood (UK), 2013. New Copy ... $10.99 17.98
An album that definitely packs a powerful punch – thanks to a compelling blend of sounds from both London and Kenya, brought together in a whole new formation of African groove! The album's a wicked reworking of an older aesthetic – in a spirit that's similar to the really inventive changes that Tony Allen brought to his music on the Paris scene in the late 90s – but with a fresh, crisp sort of energy that really lives up to the group's placement on the Brownswood label! Electric and acoustic elements are wrapped together beautifully – so that both act very organically in the music – and the vocals work in a similar way – never totally out front, but instead a strong part of this wonderful hybrid. Titles include "Sunken Wrecks", "Owiny Techno", "Norbat Okelo", "Nagalo Ni Piny Odag", "Yukimwi", "All Together", and "Jonny Ra Ha". CD

TroumacaGrace ... CD
Brownswood (UK), 2013. New Copy ... $9.99 17.98
A nice mix of bubbling electronic grooves and warm, earthy atmosphere from Troumaca – and another solid set of genre-skirting soundscapes on the Brownswood label! It's a mix of compelling beats, keyboards, synth and more organic instrumentation. They've got quite a sun-toasted vibe, with strains of dancehall and tropical club grooves – but what really sets the group apart is their devotion to the songs. There's a nice vocals-centric approach at play here – with some really catchy choruses. Good stuff! Includes "Trees", "Sanctify", "Gold, Women & Wine", "Kingdom", "The Sun", "Tiger Eye", "Ivory", "Lady Colour", "The Grace" and more. CD

New King YorubaSunlightsquare ... CD
Sunlightsquare (UK), 2014. New Copy ... $18.99
Way more than just the usual Afro Funk sounds – as King Yoruba mix together a trans-Atlantic blend of styles that includes Latin elements, jazzy bits, and even some 70s soundtrack elements – all wrapped up in a tapestry of grooves that are heavy on acoustic percussion and electric keyboards, given a lot of spontaneous energy by jazzy horns! The set was recorded in both Havana and London, and really has that feel – almost like some of the best Gilles Peterson/Brownswood projects from Cuba – but maybe even jazzier. Titles include "Orula", "Ochosi", "Never Go Die-O", "Ogguere", "Breakin Down", and "Fantasy". CD

New 74 Miles AwayGear Change ... LP
Laid Back Records (France), 2013. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A fully instrumental set from this cool keyboard combo – a group who've recorded previously for Melting Pot and Brownswood, but who somehow sound even greater here than ever before! The group features two guys on keys – including Fender Rhodes, moog, and Wurlitzer – mixed with guitars and samples, and some sweet funky flute too – all at a level that trips easily between 70s and 80s spacey funk modes – a vibe that handles all aspects of influence from Herbie Hancock, plus lots more exciting bits from the underground too! There's plenty of jazz in the mix, but the tunes also have a forward funky flavor too – and titles include "Looking Good", "Little Fatima", "Brusseleiro", "Axel Foley", "Sly", and "Seven Four".
