A pretty great little project – a surprising turn for Slakah The Beat Child – working here as the leader of this groovy little group! The music has a lot less "beat" than before – and plenty of the warm sunny tones you might guess from the cover – a beautiful blend of soul and solid songwriting, with a genre-crossing approach that could well make these guys huge in years to come! Tunes are very well-written – and inflected by core instrumentation that often includes sweet violin, cello, and flute – which make for a great addition to Slakah's acoustic guitar, and the nicely punctuated rhythms that really get things going. The album's a great surprise – one of those special discoveries you'll be proud to get in on early – and titles include "Dream On", "Speed Of Time", "The Other Side Of Tomorrow", "Dear Lucy", "Keep Breathing", "Call Me Your Friend", "Beneath It All", and "Perfect Summer".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Good Things
Stones Throw, 2010. New Copy 2LP
Cinematic soul rooted in the rawer organ, drums and horns vibes that resonated deeply in records from north to south in the 70s – done with a lean, tight and head nodding groove no doubt informed by Aloe Blacc's own roots in hip hop – on his best album yet and one of best raw soul ...

Home Again
Interscope, 2012. New Copy
The full length debut for Michael Kiwanuka – a record that stands out brilliantly, not only for it's strength and depth – but also because almost no one is making airy, often acoustic soul music on a major label in 2012! The record has been compared to Terry Callier's work with ... LP, Vinyl record album
Honest Jons (UK), 2013. New Copy
Not sure if this record will stop the spread of global conflict, but it's more than groovy enough to make us drop what we're doing and trip out with the grooves! As with other Wareika projects, the sound here is plenty dubby – lots of influences from older Kingston and London records, but ... LP, Vinyl record album
Impossible Ark (UK), 2013. New Copy
A very hip, very cool project from the Nostalgia 77 side of the universe – an offshoot project by various members of that group, done in a style that's a lot more funky than usual! The tracks have either male or female vocals – both very soulful singers – and the instrumentation ... LP, Vinyl record album
Tru Thoughts (UK), 2001. New Copy 2 LPs (reissue)
Wonderfully beat-heavy work by Quantic – a wicked mix of classic elements and lots of funky roots – but served up in a leaner, cleaner style overall! The approach is a bit more produced than the live work of Quantic – almost in the early Ninja Tune mode – mixing together ... LP, Vinyl record album
