SeshenFlames & Figures ... CD
Tru Thoughts (UK), 2016. New Copy ... $10.99 11.98
One of the most soulful acts in years from the Tru Thoughts label – and that's saying a lot, given that most of their records are pretty darn soulful! Seshun have kind of a crispy, contemporary vibe – tunes that aren't afraid to hang onto a hook, but which also have all the forward-thinking production elements that you'd expect if you know any of their labelmates – a blend that makes the catchy lead female vocals still feel wonderfully fresh, and quite far from mainstream R&B. Bassist Akiyosi Ehara produced the record, but all the words were written by singer Lalin St Juste – whose charms are the real draw to our ears! Titles include "Distant Heart", "Right Here", "Spectacle", "Flames & Figures", "Already Gone", "Other Spaces", and "Firewalker". CD
Also available Flames & Figures ... LP 16.99

✨✧ OrgoneKillion Floor ... LP
Ubiquity, 2007. New Copy 2LP ... Out Of Stock
A monstrous debut from one of the heaviest acts we've heard in years – LA's Orgone, easily one of the most up-and-coming funky combos around! Although Orgone share a bit with some of the leaner deep funk groups who've cropped up in the past decade or so, they've also got a sound that's a bit more advanced overall – sort of that second-generation approach to funk that hit the scene by the mid 70s, as some of the bigger funk acts like Black Heat or War moved out of the indie scene and really started to hit a wider audience! That doesn't mean that Orgone's commercial at all – because they've got a sound that's still as sharp-edged as any smaller group – but with a lineup that's quite large, they're able to encompass a very wide range of soulful styles – gritty 45 riffing, slinky Chicano-styled grooves, Afro Funk, tighter soul tracks, and lots lots more – all carried off with perfection throughout. The album feels like some lost masterpiece on Fantasy, or possibly some overlooked early 70s major label funk set on WEA or United Artists – and titles include "Who Knows Who", "I Get Lifted", "Funky Nassau", "Lone Ranger", "Prism Break", "Crabby Ali", "Duck & Cover", "Dialed Up", "Said & Done", "Hambone", "It's What You Do", "Do Your Thing", and "Sophisticated Honky".

VariousRewind! 4 – Original Classics Revisited, Rerecorded & Rewound ... CD
Ubiquity, 2005. New Copy ... $12.99 16.98
This great series just keeps on getting better and better – and we've got no problem saying that we really love this latest installment of Rewind! As with previous volumes, the focus here is on older tunes, redone by current artists of the global groove underground – served up in a variety of styles that extrapolate the originals nicely. The difference here, though, is that the overall sound is massively funky – harder hitting than even the excellent previous volumes, and in a mode that goes way past the gimmick of a "covers only" album. Tracks include 5 exclusives to the set, plus a few that have been hard to track down in any form – and titles include "Evil Vibrations" by Rebirth, "Word Up" by Willis, "This Land Is Our Land" by Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings, "Funky Nassau" by Orgone, "Just Like A Baby" by Sly & The Family Stone, "Star Of A Story" by Yam Who, "River Man" by Shawn Lee, "I Love You" by As One, "The Look Of Love" by Platinum Pied Pipers, and "7 Nation Army" by Nostalgia 77.

✨✧ VariousSouthport Weekender Vol 7 – Jazzanova & Mr Scruff ... CD
Susu (UK), 1960s/1970s. Used 2 CDs ... $5.99
Two very hip sets in the Southport Weekender series – both of them much different than the usual club or house-oriented grooves! Jazzanova rule the scene on disc one – blending together a great assortment of grooves from their own Sonar Kollektiv scene, plus a host of similar sounds that really fit nicely together – slightly cosmic, always modern, and usually with a strong undercurrent of soul. Cuts include "Lighthouse" by Dop, "She Walks Alone" by Eva Be, "Still Sequence" by Tokyo Black Star, "Club 69" by Telepaticos, "Ghana Wadada" by Soulphiction, "The Brighter Side" by Version, "Theme From Belle Et Fou (Danny Krivit edit)" by Jazzanova, and "Dance Freak" by South Bronx Community Youth Project. Mr Scruff takes things over on disc two – a wonderful assortment of older soul and funk bits that are totally great – a whopping batch of 21 tracks that includes gems like "That's What You Say" by Gloria Scott, "I Come Running Back" by Sandra Wright, "The Time Is Right For Love" by Bobby Reed, "Blazin" by Stardust, "Stop On By" by Mommie O, "I Bet You Can't Love Me One Time" by Bill Spoon, "Wahoo Wahoo Wahoo" by Wayne Carter, "Live & Let Live" by Jimmy Jones, "Gone" by Mark V Unlimited, and "Mr Blindman" by Donna McGhee.

✨✧ Lack Of AfroHello Baby ... LP
Loa (UK), 2016. New Copy Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Lack Of Afro really seems to have tightened up his game – realizing that more can come from less – especially when it's focused on a sound this strong! Gone are some of the tricks and turns you might know from the LOA of years back – especially some of the mixes that circulated under that name – and instead, the album's got this solid soulful vibe that feels more like a deep funk combo, than a set of tracks that come mostly from the hands of producer/instrumentalist Adam Gibbons! Yet while Gibbons plays much of the music on the set, he's also got some help from other funk players, too – and singers who include Joss Stone, Elliott Cole, Emma Noble, and Juliette Ashby – who help emphasize some of the more retro soul elements in the music, but with the collaborative vibe of singers in a soundsystem. Titles include "Hello Baby", "I Got The Rhythm", "Nothing Personal", "Take You Home", "One World", "The Bakery Girl", "Now I Feel Good", "Walk In The Sun", and "Peace & Love".

VariousDJ Spinna Presents The Sound Beyond Stars – Essential Remixes ... CD
BBE (UK), 2000s. New Copy 2CD ... $18.99 22.99
The mighty DJ Spinna has a way of making already-great music sound even greater – by using just the right sort of soulful touch to augment subtle elements in the original tunes that might have otherwise gone overlooked – to unlock a richer, more righteous energy that really serves the tunes well! And while we've loved Spinna's remix work on countless singles over the years, we're even happier to hear it all in one place like this – in a nicely overstuffed collection that has so many great Spinna touches, it could well be a Spinna album on its own – especially since the DJ always has such a warmly collaborative relationship with so many different artists. Tracks include "Days Like This (Spinna & Ticklah club)" by Shaun Escoffery, "Live In The Light (DJ Spinna rmx)" by Fertile Ground, "Moonlight (DJ Spinna Galacti Soul voc)" by Bah Samba, "Dirty Mind (DJ Spinna rmx)" by Animal House, "Dear Friend (DJ Spinna rmx)" by Loftsoul with Lisa Millet, "Crossroads (DJ Spinna rmx)" by Alison Crockett, "Closer (DJ Spinna rmx)" by Goapele, "A Better Day (DJ Spinna rmx)" by Louie Vega with Raul Midon, "Why (DJ Spinna rmx)" by Tortured Soul, "I Remember Love (DJ Spinna rmx)" by Yvett Rovira, and "Rideaway Getaway (DJ Spinna rmx)" by Agent K with Carleen Anderson.
