No need for a leap of faith where Bluey's concerned – as we've been loving his music with Incognito for many many years, and we're more than happy to hear the man on his own! The vibe here is every bit as soulful and righteous as the best Incognito work – but there's also a more ... (Neo Soul) read moreCD
Brand New Heavies —
Forward ... CD Shanachie, 2013. New Copy ....
Brand New Heavies back in action – and sounding every bit as great as always! The group still has that sublime mix of soul, jazz, and funk that's made them so great right from the start – a mode that's steeped in classic influences from the 60s and 70s, yet finds a way to come out ...

The Floacist, sounding better than ever – in a record that may well top any of her previous work – and maybe even music by Floetry too! The set begins with a wonderful duet with Raheem Devaughn on the cut "Start Again" – a cut that feels like some lost treasure from the ... (Neo Soul) read moreCD
A great double-length set that collects 2 rare sessions from late in Fela's career! Don't be put off by the date, though, because the material's great – and has that tight hard Afro Beat groove that you'll know from Underground System, another session from around the same time. "ODOO&qu ... (Global Grooves) read moreCD
Blue velvet from Maysa – a singer who's every bit as sweet as ever – and working here with warmly jazzy backdrops from Chris "Big Dog" Davis! The lady's got all the flow we've always loved in her music – and if anything, she manages to refine her sound even further with ... (Neo Soul) read moreCD
Chante Moore doing what she does best – keeping it smooth and special, and really letting her great vocals stretch out and flow! The album's got a mostly laidback vibe – tunes that are well-produced, but without any too-commercial modes too – that special sort of space between ... (Soul) read moreCD

9ine ... CD Shanachie, 2013. New Copy ....
The first ever full length collaboration from contemporary soul veterans Musiq Soulchild and Syleena Johnson – and it's by no means a predictable male/female joint R&B record – they're rolling with a sound enriched by their mutual love of reggae! Musiq and Syleena both went through ... (Neo Soul) read moreCD
US issue of some of Sonny's African recordings from the early 80s. The groove here is afro-pop, with crisp guitars and a lighter beat than Fela's style of afrobeat, but with similar cascading horn parts. The production's a bit slicker too, with the vocals pushed way forward in the mix. Titles ... (Global Grooves) read moreCD

A killer set from Omar – an artist we've loved right from the start, and someone who's never ever let us down! The record's got a great lean feel – almost a return to the modes that Omar first released on his classic material for Talking Loud – that tight, no-nonsense approach to ... (Neo Soul) read moreCD
Truly one of the most essential reggae albums of all time, and without a doubt one of our top dub albums. While we may be known for our hyperbolic comments on LPs here at Dusty, this album is very much deserving of the praise, and if you don't own it, you need to. Basically a collection of dubs ...

The cover's a bit cheesy, but the sound is right on the money – very much in the best spirit of Pieces Of A Dream that we've loved all these years – and not far at all from the group's great roots! The jazz is smooth and soulful – with loads of great keyboards from Curtis Harmon, ... (Jazz) read moreCD
