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".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Magical Thinking
Soundway (UK), 2013. New Copy Gatefold
Some of the tightest tracks we've ever heard from Chico Mann – and some of his most soulful too – a great set of work that really has him stepping past some of the rougher structures of earlier years, and showing a new love of 80s keys and beats as well! The album's got a skittish ... CD

Victim Of Love
Dunham/Daptone, 2013. New Copy
Damn amazing work from Charles Bradley – an instant soul classic for all generations, as you'll hear from the very first note! Not only are Bradley's vocals incredible – the kind of once-in-a-long-time approach he brought to his debut – but the backings and production are ... CD

Play It Again
Keep On Boppin (Netherlands), 2008. New Copy
Funky grooves from Basque country – an unlikely location, but one that turns up some surprisingly great work from this sharp-edged little combo! The Cherry Boppers have a name that might be a little hokey, but they hooked us in right from the start with their tight version of classic funk ... CD

13 Degrees Of Reality
Now Again/Stones Throw, 2013. New Copy
If this is reality, lead us onward – as the set is a mindblowing batch of trippy psych-funk from The Heliocentrics – even more offbeat and experimental than before, in ways that make the combo the true heirs to the legacy first begun by Stark Reality! The album's definitely funky at ... CD

Skeletal Essences Of Afro Funk – 1969 to 1980
Analog Africa (Germany), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy
The title gets it perfectly right on this sweet little set – as the grooves are raw and stripped down – often just to the core elements of Afro Funk! The music may be the most hard-hitting we've ever heard from this legendary combo – and it's served up beautifully in this well-sel ... CD

Analog Africa (Germany), Mid 70s. New Copy
Raw sound, indeed – and possibly one of the most hard-hitting compilations so far from the Analog Africa label! There's a quality here that's mighty fresh, and which shows us that there's still plenty of African nuggets to find, if you know where to dig! Much of the music has a dark, moody ... CD
