DJ KawasakiTimeless – Mixed By DJ Kawasaki ... CD
Extra Freedom (Japan), 2015. New Copy ... $23.99
It's been a few years since we last heard from DJ Kawasaki – but that hasn't dimmed his talents at all, and instead he seems to have gotten even deeper and more soulful over the years! Unlike so many other talents with "DJ" in their name, Kawasaki's a very well-rounded artist with a talent that reminds us of some of the most compelling, collaborative soul talents from years back – a modern day house maestro who's bringing forward the older ethos of 70s giants like Roy Ayers or Wayne Henderson! Like both of those artists, Kawasaki has a wonderful balance between groove and deeper soul elements in his music – beats and basslines that work well on modern dancefloors, but a thoughtful presentation of both the vocals and instrumental passages that's very timeless. All cuts here are either originals by DJ Kawasaki, or remixes – and singers include Latanza Waters, Tasita D'Mour, Sharlene Hector, Jennifer Wallace, and Emi Tawata – on tracks that include "Alone In The Dark", "It's Your World (Root Soul rmx)", "Reach Out", "Love Crash Down", "Come & Get Me (DJK & Makoto rmx)", "Give Me The Night (DJK & Makoto rmx)", and "Feel The Music".

Masters At Work & OthersHouse Masters – Masters At Work Vol 2 (4CD set) ... CD
Defected (UK), 1990s/2000s. New Copy 4CD ... $23.99 25.98
The title definitely gets it right – as the team of Kenny Dope and Louie Vega are certainly masters of house – as you'll hear in this overstuffed 4CD set! The package brings together 40 tracks that really span the gamut of the duo's genius – from their important early house records, their crucial remixes of tracks for others, and their groundbreaking work during their second chapter – when the Masters At Work name helped bridge a space between older funk and soul, and the freshest sounds of the 21st Century! There's a huge amount here to love – and titles include "I Like (MAW main mix)" by Shanice, "Our Time Is Coming" by MAW with Roy Ayers, "Buddy X (Masters At Work dub 1)" by Nenah Cherry, "Always There (MAW main mix)" by Incognito with Jocelyn Brown, "I Feel Love (Masters At Work 86th Street mix)" by Donna Summer, "When You Touch Me (MAW re-edit)" by Taana Gardner, "You Can Do It (Nuyorican style mix)" by Nuyorican Soul with George Benson, "Star Chasers (Nu Yorican dub)" by 4Hero, "Let It Go (Ken Lou mix)" by Black Magic, "Ten Percent (Ken Lou mix)" by Double Exposure, "See Line Woman (MAW rmx)" by Nina Simone, "Truth Don Die (Masters At Work house version main)" by Femi Kuti, and lots lots more!

✨✧ DJ Cam QuartetDiggin ... CD
Inflamable/Culture Factory (Japan), 2009. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
DJ Cam's definitely diggin here – going back to the classic sounds that first inspired his music, and finding a great way to play with original musical elements from a range of talents who include Wes Montgomery, Bobby Hutcherson, Roy Ayers, Freddie Hubbard, Donald Byrd, Ronnie Foster, and Tenorio Jr! The music has this style that's familiar, but also quite fresh – a bit like the job that Madlib did mixing up the Blue Note catalog years back – and handled by Cam with a wonderfully lean, clean sound – one that's maybe his best in years! InLove sings vocals on a few tracks, and the rest are instrumental – and titles include "Nebulosa", "Montara", "Everybody Loves The Sunshine", "Boss Guitar", "Little Sunflower", "You've Got To Have Freedom", "Inside My Love", and "Mystic Brew".
