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.  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Blue Note (Japan), 2014. New Copy
A great new groove from Quasimode – and a set that has the combo really coming across with a sound that's more sensitive than before! The quartet still have their great ear for a strong bottom on their jazz tunes, but most numbers here move in a midtempo speed, instead of their previous ... CD

Schema (Italy), 2009. New Copy 2CD
A long-overdue collection of all the mixes, side-projects, and rare "Nicola Conte version" tracks that have cropped up in the past decade or so – work that's every bit as great as the material Conte includes on his own albums and singles! Nicola Conte's not a remixer – he's a ... CD

A very cool EP from the mighty Soil & Pimp Sessions – and a set that has the group stepping into a whole new realm of music! The fierce horns and sharp jazzy energy of the combo is still at the core here – but the music takes on a bit more of a classic mode, too – almost a ... CD

Rejuiced Phat Shake
Legere (France), 2014. New Copy
We're not sure what we think of the title – which has a bit of a 90s ring to it – but the record's got a smoking soulful sound that definitely lives up to previous work from Nick Pride and his combo! The group's equal parts 60s soul and 70s funk – and often blend the two together ... CD

Therapy
Legere (Germany), 2014. New Copy
Some of the grooviest, funkiest work we've ever heard from New Mastersounds – and that's saying a lot, given how much we dig all their other records! We've been following these guys for over a decade, and they've never let us down – and they're one of the rare funky combos who really ... CD

Love Surreal
Purpose/E One, 2013. New Copy
Tremendous work from Bilal – and further proof that his life on the indie side of the soul spectrum has been a very good thing! There's a crispness to the record that crackles right from the start – slight cosmic touches in the beats, but never too over the top – just enough to ... CD

Love In Flying Colors
HBD, 2013. New Copy
The best yet from Foreign Exchange! FE began as a transatlantic collaboration between rapper/singer Phone in NC and producer Nicolay in Holland – who literally got it done by exchanging files online – but since Nicolay moved closer, they've grown into one of finest indie soul acts in ... CD
