CD


4.90 39

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.

Last Man On Earth
Blow Up (UK), 2014. New Copy
Maybe the coolest record we've ever heard from this mod British combo – a set that gets way past the easy retro references of previous albums, and goes for a vibe that's quite complicated, but still pretty darn groovy! The set's got the look and feel of the best jazzy soundtracks of the 60s ... CD

Hardly the kind of group you'd hear in an American motel during the 70s – no cheesy lounge jazz here – and instead, a crucially important group on the West African scene, with great vocals by a young Salif Keita! The group have a style that nicely encompasses other influences from up ... CD
