The track that started it all! While Kenny Dope and Lil Louie Vega weren't unkown before this, having had numerous underground house and hip hop successes, this was the track that took them to the next level. An unstoppable Latin house groove, with a sly insistent bassline, snapping syncopated snares and mellow, jazzy keys that we never tire of. A classic! 12-inch, Vinyl record
One of the coolest projects we've heard from Jimi Tenor in a while – and a set that's a really great sideways-step from some of his other recent music! There's still elements of the spiritual jazz currents that Jimi's been exploring for the past decade or so, but the group's also leaner, and has a sharper electric quality too – bits of fuzz and distortion that sound especially great when things get funky – which turns out to be a fair bit of the time! The trio features heavy drums from Joonas Riippa, who's often setting a tone followed by Kalle Kalima's fuzzy guitar – while Jimi adds in loads of cool extra elements on a range of keyboards, saxes, and flute – plus some occasional vocals. Some elements are quite acoustic and organic, while others have a spacey moogy vibe – and there's a focused energy here that almost distills all of Tenor's musical ideas of the past decade or two, and finds a whole new way forward. Titles include "Can We Yes", "Go Go Go", "Blind", "Sakura", "Hymn To The Sun God", "The Missing Page 1964", and "100 Ufoa Suomesta". CD
Bob Sinclar —
Paradise ... LP Yellow (France), 1998. Used 2LP ...
Temporarily Out Of Stock
A landmark album for the French groove scene – and a very tasty bit of modern house by the great Bob Sinclar! The record's got a very deep sound that's a mix of disco strings and 80s house beats – all fused into one massive groove with a slight touch of the modern. Bob's commitment to no-nonsense house is really refreshing – and the simplicity of the album made it a winner with a wide variety of audiences, from hip clubbers in bohemia to longtime disco fans who appreciate the album's classic sound. Titles include "The Ghetto", "Get Into The Music", "Disco 2000 Selector", "Ultimate Funk", "Move Your Body", "Souvenir", "Gym Tonic", and "Vision Of Paradise". LP, Vinyl record album

A 32 minute suite of sounds from Thelema – dedicated to the film Scanners and its original score by David Cronenberg and Howard Shore! The music here feels as if it's more the group's own, but is definitely in the spirit of the creepy movie – lots of spare organ lines that move slowly through space, mixed with some analogue electronics that are sometimes spacey, sometimes noisy – peppered with a few more electric bits that really surprised us!

(Amazing vinyl, worth the price of the record alone – kind of a yellow/brown coffee stain color, and nice and heavy!)
