Sahko (Finland), 1994. New Copy
Very early music from Jimi Tenor – music from a movie that he directed himself – before moving on to conquer the worlds of soul, funk, and spiritual jazz! This set is much like Tenor's earliest albums under his own name – highly electronic, yet already something apart from the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Native Rebel, 2018. New Copy
Global grooves and soulful house blended to perfection by Ron Trent & co.'s Trinidadian Deep! "Native Travels" might be the spaciest jam here, with the keys prominent in the mix. "Lights Off" carries influences of funky fusion, but some some great, earthy Afro-Latin ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Generations
Steal Vybe, 2018. New Copy
Fast funky sounds from the Steal Vybe duo of Chris Forman and Damon "Mr Dizzy Fingers" Bennett – and a record that's overflowing with great guest help – from a lineup that includes Omar, Peven Everett, Kenny Bobien, Fertile Ground, Sara Devine, Ursula Rucker, Trizonna ... CD
Tru Thoughts (UK), 2018. New Copy 2LP
Heady sounds from the Tru Thoughts label – served up here in one of their special Shapes collections – which always means a lot of special mixes and hard-to-find tracks! Tru Thoughts have been at the underground music game for years – and they've always had a fantastic ear for ... LP, Vinyl record album
Heavenly Sweetness (France), 2018. New Copy
A limited promo single – with two tracks from a forthcoming album by Cotonete! "Layla" has this slow-building mix of spiritual horns and a fuzzy guitar solo – almost as if Robert Fripp found himself recording for the Gondwana label – before the tune takes off with more ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Star Creature, 2018. New Copy
Sweet 80s grooves from Ourra – awash in all sorts of cool keyboards, from street electro-styled lines, to those with a darker European energy! The songs are all nice and tuneful, but also all instrumental – and are almost begging for vocals at times, because they're so darn catchy ... LP, Vinyl record album
Island (UK), 1995. New Copy Gatefold
The first Tricky LP, which along with Portishead, sort of established the blueprint for the whole mid 90's guy-with-sludgy-beats-meets-girl-vocalist trip hop genre. And like the Portishead LP, this one really stands up to the test of time, where all the imitators just don't. Truthfully though ... LP, Vinyl record album
Played In Japan
Twentythree (UK), 2000. New Copy
A totally wonderful performance from Fila Brazilia – one that captures the group in a live setting, and showcases their funky instrumentation way more than some of their more beats-heavy work in the studio! In fact, the whole thing might come as something of a revelation – because ... CD
NYC Disco Part 2
Nervous, 2018. New Copy 2LP
The mighty Louie Vega pays tribute to the New York scene that gave him a start – and which he helped transform with his classic club work of the past few decades!

Sony (Italy), 2018. New Copy
A fantastic new setting for the magnificent voice of Mario Biondi – a set that has the Italian crooner working alongside co-producer Kassin – who helps give Mario this very groovy take on Brazilian music! The style is mostly upbeat and soulful – a bit like the grooves on early ... CD
First Word (UK), 2018. New Copy 2LP
Kaidi Tatham hasn't given us many albums under his own name over the years – but each one is a great cause for celebration – as his musical vision is so fresh and bold, we're even more in love with Tatham in a full length setting, compared to his many 12" singles! The scope of ... LP, Vinyl record album
Soul Food Taqueria
Mo Wax/Be With (UK), 2002. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)
Laidback, messed-up funk from Tommy Guerrero – the kind of mostly-instrumental grooves that made him a revolutionary funky talent from the American underground! Tommy's not working in a live funk mode here, but he has a great way of mixing beats, samples, and other instrumentation at a level ... LP, Vinyl record album
Soul Jazz (UK), 1996. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
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 – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Death Valley
Alpha Pup, 2018. New Copy
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 ... CD
Love – Part 2
Kindred Spirits (Netherlands), 2010. New Copy
A brilliant extension of the Love set from Build An Ark – focusing on some of the more improvisational spirit that's integral to their cosmic groove! Love Part 2 is mix of intimate moments and soaring atmospherics from Carlos Nino, Miguel-Atwood Ferguson and the rest of the stellar ensemble, ... CD
Love – Part 1
Kindred Spirits (Netherlands), 2009. New Copy
A perfect title for a perfect record – especially given all the love we've felt from Build An Ark over the years! The album's a masterpiece through and through – easily the greatest statement ever from this already-amazing band – a contemporary ensemble, but one that we'd ... CD
Time Capsule
Soul Jazz (UK), 1996. New Copy
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 – ... CD
Modern Latin Jazz
Schema (Italy), 2017. New Copy 2CD
The title's a great one here – as Gerardo Frisina has been one of the few contemporary artists trying to find a fresh voice for Latin Jazz – which he does beautifully by blending classic albums and a more current sense of club! The 2CD package brings together unreleased material with ... CD
Peacefrog (UK), 1996. New Copy 2LP (reissue)
An early classic from John Beltran – filled with the kinds of careful touches and deeper energy that instantly set him apart from the pack!

Les Sourdes Oreilles
My Bags (France), 2017. New Copy
This "ensemble" is really just one guy – Charif Megarbane, who recorded the whole album in Kenya – working together a fantastic array of sounds on drums, percussion, guitar, Fender Rhodes, Farfisa, flute, vibes, oud, and a number of other instruments too – all with a ... LP, Vinyl record album
Tru Thoughts (UK), 2018. New Copy
A group that's every bit as trippy as you might guess from their name, and the cover image on the set – working here in a post-jazz mode that's similar to other projects over the years from the Tru Thoughts label, especially the instrumental musings from the Nostalgia 77 side of the universe! ... LP, Vinyl record album
BBE (UK), Late 90s/2000s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
The drums do plenty of talking here – in a wonderful set that looks at the return of deeper rhythms and percussion to the global house music underground! Just at a point when some pretenders were trying to claim too-strong influences from Cuba, Africa, and other deeper cultures – ... LP, Vinyl record album
MDCL Remixes Vol 1 EP
Mashibeats, 2018. New Copy
Masterful remixes by the mighty Mark De Clive-Lowe – with all the depth we've always loved in both his production work and his own recordings – putting his distinctive spin on tracks by Nils Wulker & Jill Scott, Nina Lares, King, Dexter Story, Amana Melome and Cherie Mathieson! Mark ... LP, Vinyl record album
Drunk
Brainfeeder, 2017. New Copy
Fantastic work from one of the most compelling mainstream talents in recent years – an artist who can get wide fame and acclaim, yet keep on pushing the boundaries into fresh new cosmic territory! This album may well be Thundercat's masterpiece – not just a summation of all the ideas ... CD
Slow Dance
Heavenly Sweetness (France), 2018. New Copy
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 ... CD
Heavenly Sweetness (Netherlands), 2017. New Copy
Maybe the best work so far from one of the hippest beatmaking collectives on the European scene – on a record that definitely has some of the righteous power you'd guess from the title! As before, the approach is rooted in hip hop, but also has a lot more going on too – lots of musical ... CD
Kindred Spirits (Netherlands), 2006. New Copy
70s spiritual soul jazz lives again – in this righteous tribute to the late John Coltrane! The incredible collection is filled with wonderful tracks both classic and current – and is a great bridge between the first waves of this kind of music at the end of the 60s, and the ... CD
Far Out (UK), 2018. New Copy
The legendary Arthur Verocai joins the Far Out Monster Disco Orchestra for this mighty groove – a cut that's less like his earlier work from Brazil, and much more in the soaring Salsoul spirit we've come to expect from the collective! John Morales provides a mighty mix of "Step Into My ... 12-inch, Vinyl record

Keyboardist, composer and aural adventurer Nicolay working with NC experimental jazzy fusion combo The Hot At Nights – mixing dense melodies and breezy atmosphere with a tight live band dynamic! We've admired Nicolay for a long time, and it's been rewarding to see and hear him evolve from a ... LP, Vinyl record album
Virtual Stars
Modern Sun (Netherlands), 2018. New Copy
Skymark is Marc Friedli – a European keyboardist with a real love of vintage instruments – Arp, Moog, Prophet, Roland, and more – all of which he brings to bear nicely in this very groovy set! As with his previous record, the vibe here is kind of late 70s/early 80s – some ... LP, Vinyl record album
Still Music, 2005. New Copy 2LP
An excellent collection of soulful house from the current Detroit underground – one that's bubbling over with great work from lesser-known talents – all of whom come together to prove that these days, Detroit's one of the most happening music scenes on the planet! There's a really ... LP, Vinyl record album
Zoot Allure
Papa (UK), 2018. New Copy
Pure genius from Nathan Haines – the saxophonist who really helped bring some depth to the London broken beat scene at the start of the century – still a tremendously visionary musician after all these years! Haines has really opened up his sound in the past decade or so – ... CD
Acid Jazz/BGP (UK), Late 80s. New Copy
Tremendous grooves from the earliest (and best) years of the acid jazz scene – all recorded at a time when London was exploding with sounds from the 60s and 70s, and turning out some of the hippest music on the planet! Although the term "acid jazz" was soon mishandled and mis-manage ... CD

Only Old
Far Out (UK), 2018. New Copy
The cover image is a cutup of global scenes and cities – and that's a great way to represent the music of Ben Hauke – as the London producer works very much in the best cultural criss-crossing mode that we've come to love from the Far Out label! The style here is more in the mode of ... LP, Vinyl record album
BBE (UK), 2018. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
Alex Attias has always given us some really creative sounds in his own music – so we've got some mighty high expectations when he brings together a selection of tracks by other artists for BBE! Fortunately, the record not only lives up to those expectations, but does them one better – ... LP, Vinyl record album
2000 Black (UK), 2018. New Copy
A mighty pairing of Lord and Dego – and one that certainly lives up to the spiritual sounds we've come to expect from the 2000 Black label over its many years of music!

Palmares Fantasy (180 gram vinyl)
Far Out (UK), 2018. New Copy
The deepest record we've heard so far from London's Sean Khan – and that's saying a lot, as we really loved his previous albums!

Alex Attias has always given us some really creative sounds in his own music – so we've got some mighty high expectations when he brings together a selection of tracks by other artists for BBE! Fortunately, the record not only lives up to those expectations, but does them one better – ... CD
Blue Twilight/Electric Ride
Electric Blue, 2018. New Copy
Ron Trent making sweetly melodic, bubbling keys & electro soul stoked grooves under his RT Factor nom de plume! "Blue Twilight" and "Electric Ride" flow from one to the other in a seamless kind of way, despite being on opposite sides – the former with a prominent, not ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
BBE (UK), 2006. New Copy 2LP
The long-awaited full length assemblage of singles from Marc Mac's breezy, soul jazz-steeped hip hop groove project Visioneers – a mesmerizing batch of reworked classic hip hop tunes that's well worth the wait! Dirty Old Hip Hop is far too humble a description for the rich material – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Alpha Pup, 2018. New Copy
Densely atmospheric and hypnotically beat-driven grooves from Mad Zach on Alpha Pup! There's a bit more of intense electronic vibe here than the some of the more abstract jazzy soul soundscapes of a lot what we've heard on the label to date, which is gratifying honestly – and is compelling as ... LP, Vinyl record album
Acid Jazz/BGP (UK), 1994. New Copy 2CD
A hugely expanded version of this stone London classic from Mother Earth – presented as a 2CD set with a huge amount of extra material! The core album is the kind of record that should have crossed over big at a global level, had more folks been paying attention to the Brit funk scene at the ... CD
Star Creature, 2018. New Copy
A lean, crisp and bouncing EP of future funky synth grooves – rooted in 80s boogie soul influences, and a surefire dancefloor today! Mr Crime/Late Night Science go above and beyond the call of duty, giving a much richer sound than some of the minimalist 80s style groovers out there, bring in ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Strictly Jaz Unit, 2018. New Copy
One of the more spiritual soul rooted GU tracks in a while! "Love Sought After" with Swaylo has both spirited spoken word and beautifully sung vocals, with a nice uptempo vibe on the original – and a solid dub version and beats-centric filpside. 12-inch, Vinyl record
Drank
Brainfeeder, 2018. New Copy
A chopped-up take on Thundercat's album Drunk – handled here by OG Ron & The Chopstars – who provide a surprisingly sensitive take on the music! The album's billed as "chopped not slopped" – and that claim definitely seems right – as the music here is mostly ... CD
Let Your Light Shine On
MPS (Germany), 2018. New Copy
Nicola Conte is completely at the top of his game here – showing us yet another level of his mighty jazz-based talents – some deeper spiritual currents than ever before, mixed with a good dose of global influences too! The record has Conte working with a hip Spiritual Galaxy ensemble, ... CD

African Spirits/New World Shuffle
Schema (Italy), 2017. New Copy (pic cover)
A record that's way more than just the 12" single you might guess from the format – as it's a wonderfully deep collaboration between Nicola Conte and trombonist Gianluca Petrella – done at a level that's maybe more like a spiritual jazz record overall! "African Spirits" ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
