VariousBrownswood Electric – Presented By Gilles Peterson ... CD
Brownswood (UK), 2010. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Electronic music with soul from a variety of contempory artists – compiled by Alex Stevenson of Patchwork Pirates and material with the personal endorsement of the Gilles Peterson – featuring truly exceptional stuff by B Brova, Mosca, 16bit, Hypno, George Fitzgerald and more! Brownswood Electr*c is a fresh step in highlighting worthy modern artists, a venture not unlike the great Brownswood Bubblers sets. It's material from the from the electronic underground, nicely utilizing materials pioneered in club groove styles, genres and scenes over the years – club soul, dubstep, drum & bass, broken beat, etc – but the stuff here dodges pigeonhole or easy categorization. Excellent stuff – a real win for team Brownswood! 15 tracks in all: "Computa Love" by B Bravo, "Wad" by Pearson Sound, "Square One" by Mosca, "Over The Top" by Hypno, "Painted Jezebel" by George Fitzgerald, "BB Thing" by KiEnRa, "Underpass" by Rockwell, "Serged" by Mount Kimble, "Lady In Red (Club Edit)" by Clueless and more.

✨✧ VariousBrownswood Bubblers Volume 11 – Compiled By Gilles Peterson ... CD
Brownswood (UK), 2015. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Brilliant sounds from the global underground – an excellent in this wonderful series that never lets us down! We've been digging the musical choices of Gilles Peterson since the late 80s – and over the years, he's continued to expose us to new music we never would have heard otherwise – first with his compilations and radio shows, and more recently with his excellent work on his own Brownswood label! The Bubblers series has been running for a number of years, but each new volume is a fresh delight – sounds we'd never have heard otherwise, and all still as expertly chosen as the kind of work Gilles first turned us on to many years back. Titles include "Cigar Box" by Al Dobson Jr, "I Waited For You" by Billie Black, "Kamaloka" by Gogo Penguin, "20th Century Fix" by Mirror Signal, "Tomorrow" by Hector Plimmer, "A Part Of You" by Kuage, "Nowhere In Between (acoustic)" by Nightports, and "I Don't Know" by Nick Hakim.

Brownswood (UK), 2017. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Legendary DJ, tastemaker and master compiler Gilles Peterson turns takes a worthwhile dip into the contemporary underground all over the world!

✨✧ Dayme ArocenaCubafonia ... CD
Brownswood (UK), 2017. New Copy ... $10.99 11.98
The deepest work we've heard so far from Dayme Arocena – a Cuban singer we first discovered in Gilles Peterson's Havana Cultura project, but one who's really gone onto find her own strong musical paths in recent years! This set has Dayme working with Dexter Story on production – and the approach is maybe a bit more traditionally Latin than some of her earlier work, yet still infused with the soaring spirit that we love on the Brownswood label – with a vibe that's never too concerned about any sort of easy labels or boundaries, but also still respects a sense of tradition as well! The group's a large one, with lots of older Afro Cuban elements coming into play with Story's more spiritual leanings – and titles include "Negra Caridad", "Maybe Tomorrow", "Eleggua", "Todo Por Amor", "It's Not Gonna Be Forever", and "Mambo Na Ma".

✨✧ Jose JamesDreamer ... CD
Brownswood (UK), 2007. New Copy ... $10.99 11.98
The stunning debut of a really tremendous talent – a singer we'd put right up there with Jon Lucien or Terry Callier for his uniquely soulful approach to music! Like both of those previous stars, Jose James has a voice that's completely his own – a way of approaching a tune that instantly defies genres – but never in those cloying cliched ways that weigh down the Starbucks generation of singer/songwriters! Instead, James has a breathy presence that reminds us of Nina Simone at her best – and like Callier, he's clearly informed by jazz, but not truly a jazz singer – more of an open-minded cat who's able to embrace a broad history of sound, then work it out into his own personal musical vision. Instrumentation here is mostly small combo – piano, keyboards, guitar, trumpet, bass, and drums – used in a simple but shifting array to fit the mood of each new tune. Trust us, this is one you'll file with your classics right away! Titles include "Spirits Up Above", "Blackeyedsusan", "The Dreamer", "Velvet", "Red", "Winter Wind", "Desire", "Love", and "Park Bench People". CD

✨✧ Shabaka & The AncestorsWisdom Of Elders ... CD
Brownswood (UK), 2016. New Copy ... $10.99 11.98
A fantastic jazz group from the contemporary South African scene – one who've got a very righteous vibe, and a sound that's maybe even more far-reaching than any jazz we've heard from that scene back in the 60s or 70s! The group's led by Shabaka Hutchings on tenor, but is a very collaborative ensemble – with these tremendous upfront vocals from Siyabonga Mthembu, a singer with a very unique approach, and a spiritual current that we'd rank right up there with work by Leon Thomas, Dwight Trible, or Joe Lee Wilson, even though Mthembu's very much his own man. The group's also got two other great horn players – Mthunzi Mvubu on alto and Mandla Mlangeni on trumpet – plus Fender Rhodes and piano from Nduduzo Makhathini, and a wonderfully early array of bass, percussion, and drums – which lay down a fantastic groundwork for each tune. The music starts somewhere in the spiritual territory of the post-Coltrane scene – but really takes off immediately with its own individual spirit – ala Kamasai Washington – and the performance is live and unadorned, without some of the studio efforts that show up on other Brownswood label releases. Beautiful work throughout – an instant classic that we'd rank right up there with the best material by folks like Nat Birchall or Matthew Hallsall, but very different too. Titles include "Nguni", "Mzwandile", "Joyous", "The Sea", "The Observer", and "Give Thanks". CD

VariousGilles Peterson Presents Havana Cultura – The Anthology ... CD
Brownswood (UK), Late 2000s/Early 2010s. New Copy 2CD ... $16.99 17.98
A fantastic overview of the wonderful sounds that Gilles Peterson has been cooking up in Havana since 2009 – the rich array of artists he's collaborated with as part of the bigger Havana Cultura project – which has given great exposure to a whole new generation of brilliant Cuban talents! The approach on many tracks echoes the vibe on Peterson's Brownswood label – a mixture of roots with more contemporary 21st soul touches – on sounds that do a lot to bring the Havana vibe into contact with the musical changes in soul around the world – but all without ever resorting to easy tricks or gimmicks, or dampening the spirit at the core at all. That careful balance has always been the key Peterson hallmark, and it's greatly appreciated here – on titles that include "Yemaya" by Chillum Trio, "Rezando" by Havana Cultura Band, "Traigo" by Seu Seppie, "Yambu (Daisuke Tanabe & Yoshi Horikawa rmx)" by Havana Cultura Band, "El Ruso" by Dayme Arocena, "En Lo Profundo" by Danay Suarez, "Ay" by Arema Arega, "La Rumba Experimental (Motor City Drum Ensemble rmx)" by Havana Cultura Band, "Soy Cubano" by Kerkstra with Sexto Sentido, "Arroz Con Pollo" by Havana Cultura Band, "Calle F" by Mala, and "La Revolucion Del Cuerpo (part 1)" by Havana Cultura Band with Ogguere, Danay Suarez, and Obsesion.

VariousHavana Cultura Mix – The Soundclash! ... CD
Brownswood (UK), 2014. Used ... $6.99
A great mix of Cuban music and diversely danceable, percussive sounds from around the globe – on this excellent entry in the Brownswood label's and producer/tastemaker Gilles Peterson's Havana Cultura series! It's amazing stuff, and about as seamless a blend of styles as can be, while still being able to describe it as Soundclash – often with Cuban vocals, percussion and rhythms, with either subtle or fairly bold electronics, depending on the track – contributed by artists from Chile, UK, Germany, Hungary, Holland, South Africa and beyond. Includes "Ellegua" by Kerkstra feat Sexto Sentido, "Para Ti" by Rukaiya Russell feat Sexto Sentido, "Yemaya" by Chillum Trio feat Coki & Reni, "Ritmo Sensorial" by Rukaiya Russell feat Los Niches & Charly Mucha Rima, "Soy Cubano" by Kerkstra feat Etian Brebaje Man & Sexto Sentido, "Volar En Lo Profundo: by DJ Monokey feat Barbaro and more.

✨✧ Zara McFarlaneAll Africa (original, alternate take) (10 inch single) ... 12-inch
Brownswood (UK), 2017. New Copy (pic cover)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A fantastic reworking of this classic track – one that was originally part of a Max Roach/Oscar Brown collaboration for We Insist – given a whole new vibe here by Zara McFarlane! The instrumentation is jazzy, but groovy – with rootsy percussion at the core, and some great contributions from Binker & Moses, alongside some warmer keyboards that make the whole thing glow next to Zara's completely righteous vocal lead! The "alternate take" brings a bit more crackle to the rhythms – a vague sort of broken beat vibe – and also stretches the tune out a bit more, in a cool cosmic groove way! 12-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ William AdamsonUnder An East Coast Moon ... CD
Brownswood (UK), 2013. Used ... Out Of Stock
Almost an underground groove supergroup – given that the set features work from Earl Zinger (Rob Gallagher of Galliano) at the helm, production from 2 Banks Of 4, vocals from Valerie Etienne, and funky rhythms from Shawn Lee! The combination of talents come together here in a very new way – with a style that's much grittier and earlier than before, although still pretty darn groovy overall – almost putting a raspy old school touch on a scene that's definitely matured on its own, and may well be old enough to lay claim to the rootsy sound of this set! Rob's songwriting has definitely matured, and at some of the best moments, there's almost a British Tom Waits-y kind of quality to the set. Titles include "Below Sea Level", "Burial Blues", "Whip Of The Wind", "Laxfield Blasphemy", "Velvets Eleven", "Margaret Catchpole", and "Foggy Dew". CD
