Rongetz FoundationAlphabet City Music Club ... LP
Brooklyn Butterfly, 2019. New Copy ... $14.99
We've loved these guys since the start, but this time around they really seem to be knocking it out of the park – fusing their fantastic blend of funky jazz and contemporary soul with a fresher vibe than they've ever had before! These guys draw on plenty of classic elements, but never sound like a retro group at all – as they've got this bold spirit and forward-thinking energy that bristles with positivity, and really marks their music right from the start. The singers get some really great space in the spotlight this time around – a lineup that includes Vanisha Gould, Alina Engibaryan, Mr Day, and Vuyo Sotashe – plus rapper Lewis Parker. Rongetz plays trumpet, produced, and arranged – and instrumentation includes some great keyboards and organ, plus tenor, alto, and flute. Tracks include "The Tour Song", "Clapping Your Soul", "Funky Fancy NYC", "Death Of A Music Box", "Success Success", "Murky Park", and "Somehow Blues". LP, Vinyl record album

Yap ZeelandMusic As A Gradual Process ... CD
Bocajito (UK), 2005. Used ... $1.99
Mostly a set of downtempo grooves, but one that's put together with a fair bit of jazz in the mix – thanks to some especially nice electric piano work on the record! Yap's got a style here that's a bit undercover – hiding his identity (and sometimes his talents) underneath beats and samples that are trying a bit too hard to be cool, but which fall back at the best moments to reveal some stronger work on the keys. There's a slight dubby feel to some tracks, and the album has a somewhat dated use of found spoken bits – but sticking to the solos, there's plenty here to enjoy. Titles include "Gerkintinis", "Never Be Mine", "Heavy Heart", "Hip Hop Harold", "Warm Sunny Days", "Meditations", and "Crackly 105". CD

Da LataBirds ... CD
Da La Music (UK), 2019. New Copy ... $10.99 11.98
The first album in more than a few years from Da Lata – a set that has the core group winnowed down to Chris Franck, but which seems to open up the sound even more than before! Everything we've ever loved about Da Lata is in place here – that special sound that filters together bits of jazz and Brazilian elements with a London sort of focus – but there's also a wider globe's worth of musical elements in the mix, and the instrumentation is more live and less programmed – which makes for a warm, wonderful style all the way through! In a way, this might be the record we've always wanted Da Lata to make, and it has us falling in love with them all over again – with Chris Franck on a host of instruments – at the helm of a mighty lineup that features contributions from Mike Patto on keyboards, Matt Cooper on Rhodes, and Bembe Segue, Vanessa Freeman, Diabel Cissokho, Syren Rivers, and others on vocals. The songs are positive, and soaring with spirit – on titles that include "To B", "Thunder Of Silence", "Oba Lata", "Lunar View", "Sway", "Dakar", "Mentality", and "Memory Man". CD

DJ Spun & Dhyan MollerAcid Experience (3LP set) ... LP
Still Music, Mid 90s. New Copy 3LP ... $24.99
The sound of Chicago acid house, all filtered through the energy of the west coast rave scene – which was home to DJ Spun and Dhyan Moller when they recorded these tracks! The music was originally done straight to cassette – which creates this nicely compressed sound that takes us back to the fidelity of early Trax Records 12" singles – whose stiff, crispy quality turned out to be a perfect fit for the acid house years! These tunes definitely live up to a Chicago acid mode – very spare, very minimal, with no vocals at all – and while we might miss some of the tweakier analogue keyboard lines from our favorite acid cuts, these numbers more than make up for that with a spaced-out hypnotic feel. Titles include "Grace", "Acid707", "Build Ah Bridge", "One", "DJ Spun Acid Experience", "UR Wild & Crazy", "The Other Space Ship", "Loan Me Your Spaceship Man", and "JMD A Newer One".

Markus Enochson & The Subliminal KidTwo Guys & A Dog – No Only In Sweden/Chord song ... 12-inch
Still Music (Germany), 2007. Near Mint- (pic cover)... $4.99
A bright little tune from Markus Enochson & The Subliminal Kid – quick beats and light keyboards, pulsating together nicely – but with a lighter feel than you might guess from the strength of the groove! This one's slightly in a soulful house vein, but it's more instrumental and somewhat more electronic – and is followed by the more abstract "Chord Song" on the flipside – a tune that almost has a Sonar Kollektiv feel overall! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Music Institute, 2019. New Copy ... $9.99
A timeless trio of dancefloor stunners from house legend Alton Miller! "Inner 5" is light and compelling at the seam time, the beats busy not pounding too hear, the jazzy keyboards floating throughout, the jazz funk synth coming in a little bit thicker on "Inner 7". "Inner 8" fills out the other side with a little bit heavier a bounce to the beat. 12-inch, Vinyl record

RandolphEchoes Of Lonely Eden ... CD
Still Music (Germany), 2010. Used 2 CDs ... $9.99
A nicely reworked version of Randolph's Lonely Eden record – one that features the whole core album, plus a full bonus CD of new mixes! The core album is an amazing bit of cosmic soul from Paul Randolph – a set that seems to take some of the best energy going down on the Detroit scene in recent years, and focus it together with a new sense of power and intensity! Randolph plays bass and sings on the set – the former in a bumping, funky style that sounds especially nice next to the heavy acoustic drums mixed in alongside the beats – and the latter in a sweetly crackling way that carries some echoes of 70s Motown, but which also pushes forward in a much more righteous direction. The tunes are quite positive and powerful – and there's a really stripped-down feel to most of the set – no overdone production or heavy remixing – just core small combo instrumentation that's often mostly live, and which maintains a really spontaneous, personal feel for the set. Guests include Stephanie McKay and Waajeed – but Randolph's clearly the star of the show, and we're hoping the show's one we'll be getting for many years to come! Titles include "Broken", "Soul Brutha", "Earth 2 God", "GPS", "Lonely Eden", "Leanin", "Valentine", "Believer", and "Eda Mae". Then, the "Echoes" disc brings in mixes that really take Randolph's vision even further – some killer cuts that include "Golden Days (Aaron Jerome mix)", "Earth 2 God (Mike Banks mix)", "Leanin (Deetron mix)", "Lonely Eden (Simbad Slow mix)", "Golden Days (Zed Bias mix)", "Eda Mae (Todd Sines mix)", and "GPS (Recloose mix)".

Damon AaronHighlands ... CD
Ubiquity, 2008. Used ... $2.99
One of the most captivating albums we've heard on Ubiquity in a long time – and one of the most gentle, too! Damon Aaron's a wonderfully skilled singer/songwriter – one with a pensive, quiet sort of feel – but never in ways that are sleepy or noodly. Instead, he brings a bit of soul to his music – stretching the tunes out with slight cosmic touches on synth or keys, always used sparely, but in the best sort of ways to hearken back to some of the best folk funk moments of the 70s. Aaron's vocals are especially nice – soulful, but without ever trying too hard – and his natural warmth really shines through in the tunes. Beautiful stuff throughout – with a balance that few others could master – almost as if Nick Drake had been listening to Marvin Gaye, then was produced by Conny Plank instead of Joe Boyd! Aaron's previously worked with Breakestra, Build An Ark, and others – but he really sounds great here on his own. Titles include "Fire", "Matinee", "Fall", "Clouds", "Rainy Day", "Better", "First Love", "Giving", "Where Are You Now", and "It Reveals". CD

AstronauticaDeath Valley ... CD

Death Valley is emblazoned on the cover, and portrayed inside the CD gatefold too – but the music here is more cosmic than earthy – served up in these warm washes of electro elements that are totally great – dreamily tripping over the landscape in a laidback yet soulful sort of way! Edrina Martinez Sanchez created all the sounds here – and although she does sing a bit, the vocals are usually processed down in the mix – leaving the beats, keyboards, and electronics to provide most of the soulful scope of the sound. Titles include "California Roll", "Reasons", "Racetracks", "Sand & Fog", "I've Never Been", "Mahogany", and "Palms". CD

Adama BarryLembi ... CD
OK World (Norway), 2018. New Copy ... $9.99
Spare sounds get taken to the next dimension – as the music of Adama Barry is presented in both its original creation, and in a set of remixes by Henrik Schwarz, Bugge Wesseltoft, Prins Thomas, Mental Overdrive, and others! The album's got an unusual approach – as two-thirds of the tracks just feature Burkina Faso musician Barry – who sings, and plays a range of regional instruments, with help from Solo Diarra on djembe and balafon – all on these very spare tracks that are beautiful and haunting. Then, on six of the album's fifteen tracks, the remixers step in and electrify things – often adding beats, keyboard lines, and reworking the acoustic elements in a variety of ways. Titles include "Lembi", "Maama", "Soukalen", "Serendou", "Bissa", and "Mballa". (Global Grooves, New Grooves) CD

Beady BelleDedication ... LP
Jazzland (Norway), 2018. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $19.99
Beady Belle never lets us down – and even though the lady's been making music for well over a decade, she still turns out some of the most consistently thoughtful soul we can think of! Forget the fact that the singer's on a Norwegian label, as the lyrics here are all in English, backed by warmly jazzy instrumentation that's always made Beady's music hugely popular with our customers for American neo-soul – and which puts her in the same territory as other classic "in the know" artists, such as Monday Michiru or Incognito! The keyboards are especially nice this time around – as thoughtful as the lyrics and the vocals – and titles include "I Run You Ragged", "Hold Your Breath", "Traces", "Dedication", "Waste Of Grace", "Last Drop Of Blood", "Can You Smile", and "Out Of Orbit".

Beady BelleAt Welding Bridge ... CD
Jazzland (Norway), 2010. Used ... $6.99
A beautiful album from Beady Belle – the group and wonderful vessel for the seductive, entrancing voice and songs of Beate S. Lech – possibly their best yet! Beady Belle have made deeply engaging blend of modern jazzy soul and beautiful mood music for most of the outs, taking a step back just a bit from the slightly more crossover ready songs of Belvedere album into more intimate, yet just was inviting material on At Welding Bridge. Beate's vocals are as sultry and hypnotic as ever, singing with warmth and genuine emotion in elegant, but not overly precious way – and the instrumentation suits her perfectly. Fender Rhodes, Wurlitzer or other keys, some truly excellent guitar, clarinet, flute, electric bass and percussion frame the vocals on most tracks, and some of the tracks were cut at home, which we believe, given the warmth and intimacy. Titles include "Diamond In The Rough", "Come Home", "The Storm", "Runaway Mind", "Bird's-Eye View", "Turn Back Time", "Press Of Canvas", "Leeway", "Ambush" and "Walk On Air".

A crackling little full length set from Fred Peterkin – aka Black Jazz Consortium – a set that continues his forward-thinking approach to a groove, but which also brings in a recent love of the music of Brazil as well! The Brazilian elements here are very spare – this is still mostly future house overall – but the lighter touches really open up the sound, and especially speak to the warmer collaborative energy from a list of guests who include Leonardo Peretti Reibnitz, Trovao Rocham, Leo Vieira, Bruna Elisabetsky, and Slikk Tim. Titles include "More Blessings", "Another Path", "Salvador", "Brisbane", "Energies Collide", "Focus", "Love Alliance", "Resonate", "Soul People For Life", and "Sacred Sun". LP, Vinyl record album

The title's a great one for this album by Blundetto – given that the groove is beautifully deep, and the music moves at a pace that would make it hard to do anything but dance slow! Yet the set's not a sleepy one – as it's got all the richness and complexity of previous Blundetto efforts, and show the continuing evolution to dubbier corners of the musical spectrum explored on the past few records – a revision of Jamaican roots, but with a sound that's never standard reggae at all – despite guest appearances from Ken Boothe, Cornell Campbell, and others. Titles include "Good Ol Days", "My Weed My Queen", "Passed The Worst", "Have A Little Faith", "Story Never Told", "Colombette", "Chamber Dub", "History Dance", and "Satta". CD

Chris BowdenTime Capsule ... CD
Soul Jazz (UK), 1996. New Copy ... $18.99 22.99
An underground classic from the London scene – a record that was hugely important to us in the early days of Dusty Groove, and which is still completely tremendous all these many years later! At the time, the album was the sort of ambitious undertaking that nobody else would have done – pre-Cinematic Orchestra, pre-Nostalgia 77, pre-any of those other groups that were inspired by vintage soundtracks, David Axelrod, and all sorts of higher ideas in groovy music! Chris Bowden is a saxophonist at the core – and a jazz-based one too – but he works here with these incredible arrangements of his own creation, folding in both funky and fulfilling elements – heavy drums, percussion, and keyboards – but also some great string passages, and even surprisingly strong use of clarinet at times – creating these snakey elements that offset his own soulful lead. The album was a landmark at the time – even if it was missed by most of the planet – and it's still tremendously powerful throughout – with titles that include "Forbidden Fruit", "Natural Selection", "Deaf Out", "Telescopic Three", "Sane", "Angel Falls", "Solo", "Love Lies Bleeding", "Epsilon", and "Time Capsule".

Cinematic OrchestraTo Believe ... CD
Domino, 2019. New Copy Gatefold ... $12.99 13.98
As longtime fans might know, the Cinematic Orchestra isn't a large ensemble, but a duo – yet the pair also have this fantastic way of creating a really spacious sound in their music – thanks in part to a very open door when it comes to creative guests! This time around, there's some fantastic voice in the lead – singers who really help give the music a very rich shape, including Moses Sumney, Roots Manuva, Tawiah, Heidi Vogel, and Grey Reverend – who add lyrics to most of the songs on the album, while the duo of Jason Swinscoe and Dominic Smith help keep the focus on the large instrumental landscape, which receives some fantastic light touches from the genius of Miguel Atwood-Ferguson this time around. It's been a while since the last project from the group – but if anything, the break has only seemed to help deepen their sound. Titles include "To Believe", "A Caged Bird/Imitations Of Life", "A Promise", "Zero One/This Fantasy", "The Workers Of Art", and "Wait For Now/Leave The World". CD

City Of Women (Jimi Tenor & Edward Vesala)City Of Women II ... LP
Sahko (Finland), 1998. New Copy ... $18.99
Very fluid, freewheeling sounds from this Finnish quintet – material recorded relatively early in the career of some of the musicians, and already showing a tremendous ear for the sorts of fresh styles they'd create in years to come! The group is co-led by Jimi Tenor and Edward Vesala – both of whom produce – and the music is a mix of improvised jazz, electronics, and some very cool production effects – all used in ways that are looser and with more edge than some of the other sides of the Scandinavian scene were handling with jazz during the same generation. Tenor plays flute, tenor, and other instruments – Vesala handles drums and other instruments too – and the group also features a bit of harp from Iro Haarla, programming from Jimi Sumen, and instrument design and construction from Matti Knaapi. Titles include "Sergei", "Auloharp", "Ball Bearing", "Dumpster Diving", "Heat Birth", and "Dangerous Crossing". LP, Vinyl record album

Enigmatic dancefloor grooves from the duo of Cola and Jimmu – actually funky soul singer Nicole Willis and Finnish jazz funk player Jimmy Tenor! As Cola and Jimmu, Nicole and Jimmy are working in a mode that's inspired by dawn of the 90s soulful house music – a nice mix of earthy instrumentation and spacier textures. Sputtering beats are blended with hand percussion, swirling keyboard textures float over Jimmy's sax and Nicole's beautiful voice brings in all home. Nice! Includes "369 Degree Grind", "Enigmatic", Transcend Our Love", "Tombstone", "So Refined", "I Made Up My Mind", "Satyricon", "Wild Honey", "Brooklyn Girl" and "Classified". CD
