RyusenkeiCity Music ... LP
April (Japan), 2003. New Copy ... About July 23, 2020
A really wonderful bit of Japanese soul – one of the jazziest and most laidback records we've heard from the Japanese scene in years! Ryusenkei are a combo with a female lead vocalist and supporting instrumentation in a real 70s-styled blend of keyboards, guitar, and percussion – all touched with a bit of strings. The overall sound really takes us back to the best indie soul of the late acid jazz years – that rare point in the mid 90s when only a few records ever caught our ears as being worthy of the kind of soul we'd liked from years back, and even then most of them were from overseas sources like this one! The lyrics are all in Japanese, but that shouldn't bother you at all because the overall sound is totally great – a mix of smooth funk and sweet R&B, done at a level that almost recalls some of the best work from the British scene from more than a decade ago. Titles include "Tokyo Coaster", "Airport 80", "Friday Nite", "Don't Stop Feeling Loving You", and "Route No 3 Shibuya". LP, Vinyl record album

Da LataBirds ... LP
Da La Music (UK), 2019. New Copy ... $11.99 19.98
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". LP, Vinyl record album

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".

Aphex TwinSyro ... LP
Warp, 2014. Near Mint- 3LP Gatefold ... $24.99
The first proper full length album by Aphex Twin in more than a dozen years – and like all of his preceding efforts, he transcends all electronic music genre distinctions, delivering a sound that's distinctly his own – a sound that'll stand the test of time! Glance at the ultra-complicated track titles, and you might expect the strangest, most outre aural science of his career, but to the contrary, it's highly melodic and insistent stuff – finding him him working comfortably at home in his own canon, without repeating past glories. Excellent later work from one of the most consistently rewarding electronic music artists of the past several decades. It seems like Richard D. James doesn't ever bother to release his stuff if he doesn't have something great in the hopper, and Syro is indeed pretty great! "Minipops 67 [120.2][Source Field Mix]", "XMAS_EVET10 [120] [Thanaton3 Mix]", "[Produk 29 [101]", "4 bit 9d api+e+6 [126.26]", "180db_ [130]", "CIRCLONT6A [141.98][Syrobonkus Mix]", "CIRCLONT14 [152.97][Shrymoming Mix]", "Syro u473t8+e [141.98][Piezoluminescence Mix]", "PAPAT4 [155][Pineal Mix]", "Aisatsana [102]" and more.

Black Jazz ConsortiumEvolution Of Light (3LP set) ... LP
Perpetual, 2019. New Copy 3LP ... $16.99
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

Moses BoydDark Matter ... LP
Exodus (UK), 2020. New Copy 2LP ... $28.99
A hell of a record from drummer Moses Boyd – a musician who's fast becoming way more than a drummer! Here, Boyd is in the same "jazz plus" territory of Makaya McCraven – still strongly respectful of his lineage in the music, but also trying very hard to push the whole thing forward, and open up to new sounds and new ears – all in ways that are never commercial or crossover at all! Moses is clearly becoming a force on the London scene to match the collaborative genius of Makaya in Chicago – and although there's no personnel listed on the set, we can hear some fantastic work on saxes, keyboards, and vocals – which are handled by both male and female singers. And although Boyd drums on the set, he's clearly working more as a larger producer/arranger – one who isn't afraid to throw in a few beats from time to time – on titles that include "Yoyo", "Shades Of You", "Stranger Than Fiction", "BTB", "Far Gone", "Nommos Descent", and "What Now".
