✨✧ Bette SmithJet Lagger ... LP
Big Legal Mess, 2017. New Copy ... $12.99 17.98
The debut album by Bette Smith – a singer with a definite 70s look on the cover, and a definite sound to match! Bette was raised in Brooklyn, where she worked for years to hone her voice to a uniquely raspy style – but she recorded this album in Mississippi, with a deep soul vibe that ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Leon BridgesComing Home (180 gram pressing – includes download) ... LP
Columbia, 2015. New Copy ... $18.99 19.98
An album with a very classic look on the cover – and an equally classic sound to match – one that takes us back to some of the hippest, coolest work by early 60s singers like Sam Cooke or Marvin Gaye! Both artists are a good comparison here, as Leon Bridges is unabashedly in the same ... (Neo Soul, Deep Funk) read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Ikebe ShakedownWay Home (clear vinyl) ... LP
Colemine, 2017. New Copy Gatefold ... $18.99 21.99
A fantastic album from this increasingly hip combo – a group who were already pretty darn funky at their start, but who've just kept on moving into really amazing territory over the years! The sound here is maybe the equivalent of the depth and shifts that El Michels brought to the deep funk ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Du-RitesGreasy Listening (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Redefinition, 2017. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
Tightly funky work from The Du-Rites – a combo who just appear to be a duo, but at a level that seems to make their groove even funkier than it might be otherwise! There's no horns, no singers – just heavy drums and lots of riffing guitar – plus bits of bass, organ, and other ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Stones Throw, 2017. New Copy ... $18.99
A fantastic second set from the team of Mayer Hawthorne and Jake One – working here with some great help from Will Sessions on a number of tracks – an artist who really ups the funky ante of the record!

Durand Jones & The IndicationsDurand Jones & The Indications (with download) ... LP
Colemine, 2016. New Copy Gatefold ... $19.99
Easily one of the best deep soul albums we've heard in years – new work by a singer who hails from Indiana, but who's able to give the best from Memphis and Muscle Shoals a real run for their money! Durand Jones isn't one of these cats who's trying to fake it with a few retro touches – ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Quantic & Nidia GongoraCurao ... LP
Tru Thoughts (UK), 2017. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $18.99 21.99
Will "Quantic" Holland has really turned out to be a hell of a fellow – a guy we first fell in love with as a beatmaker, then as a funk artist – and now as one of the few people who can ever mix grooves with global elements and make the whole thing come out sounding right! ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Soul SugarChase The Light ... LP
Gee (France), 2017. New Copy ... $22.99
Funky keyboards and dubby grooves – a great little record that's as much inspired by Jamaican music as it is the longer legacy of American funky jazz! Soul Sugar first started giving us 45s about a decade ago, but their sound has really matured over the years – as leader/keyboard ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Agogo (Germany), 2017. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $35.99 39.98
It's hard not to love a band named after the oft-sampled jazz funk masterpiece by Bob James, but Japanese trio Nautilus brings the goods on their own terms! A core trio of bassist Shigeki Umezawa, keyboardist Daisuke Takeuchi and drummer Toshiyuki Sasaki, they put a really great timeless spin on ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Big Crown, 2016. New Copy ... $18.99 20.98

DiazporaIslands ... LP
Legere (France), 2017. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $18.99
A record with a cosmic cover, but a sound that's very down to earth – fierce deep funk, in the best Legere Records mode – played by a group who are currently one of the hardest-hitting acts on the funky label! The music's got the full-on power of Afro Funk – especially in the way ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

El Michels AffairSounding Out The City ... LP
Truth & Soul/Big Crown, 2005. New Copy ... $18.99 20.98
Easily one of the greatest new funk records of the 21st Century – and a set that goes way beyond some of the cliches that are currently gripping others in the deep funk underground!

Karl Hector & The MalcounsUnstraight Ahead (with download) ... LP
Now Again, 2014. New Copy 2 LPs ... $21.99
They definitely got the title right on this one – because the group never seems to move in any sort of direct line – instead always tripping around nicely with all these hip little twists and turns! Karl Hector & The Malcouns are the same loose collective of players you'll know ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

MoniqueaBlackwavefunk ... LP
MoFunk, 2017. New Copy ... $19.99 21.98
Sweet bassy soul from Moniquea – a record that's got as many basslines and keyboard riffs as some of our favorite early 80s underground work – but which also has a nicely lean, contemporary vibe too! Moniquea's vocals have a great way of fitting into this setting, too – almost ... (Neo Soul, Deep Funk) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Aural Tradition, 2017. New Copy ... $19.99 22.98
It's been a few years since we last heard from Clutchy Hopkins – and in that time, he definitely seems to have deepened his groove – coming up with a range of sonic textures and styles that nicely expand from the spare breaks and funk of his previous work! Maybe it's the collaboration ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
