Aloe BlaccWant Me (voc, inst)/Arrive (voc, inst) ... 12-inch 12-Inch
Stones Throw, 2005. Very Good+ ... $2.99
A trippy, soulful surprise from Aloe Blacc – the mic side of the Cali hip hop duo Emanon – who seems poised to make the transition from Cali hip hop to progressive soul! The backdrop of "Want Me" is a deep, pulsing electronic wall of sound with slow-building effects raining down into the mix – with Aloe in romantic dancefloor croon mode leading the way! "Arrive" is a similar number, with some heavy reverb on the electronic/synth elements – and crisp, percolating beats. Aloe handles the production on both tracks, making him a triple threat +one – writer/producer/rapper/singer! We're always a bit surprised at how unpredictably, yet solidly, the Stones Throw sound continues to grow! 12-inch, Vinyl record
(Promo in a plain sleeve.)

New Roy Davis JrChicago Forever ... LP LP format
Ubiquity, 2004. New Copy 2LP ... Out Of Stock
An instant classic from Roy Davis Jr – and a record that really takes us back to the deepest days of the Chicago house scene! Roy's tunes are simple, effective, and straightforward – yet also have a cosmic burning soul that moves them past the coldness that could sometimes hold back work from Chicago. The beats are tight, but never overbearing; the keyboards are spacey, but never too noodly; and Roy's got some great vocal help on a few cuts from singers that include Terry Dexter, Khalid, and Ayro! As a side note, the album was actually recorded a year or two before release, but delayed due to personal issues in Roy's life – which further enforces the "lost classic" feel of the set, and makes us even happier to finally have it out. Titles include "My Soul Is Electric", "If You Wanna", "Strings & Things", "Wonderland", "Nu Roots", "Heavenly Father", and "U Give U Take". LP, Vinyl record album
