BBE (UK), 2019. New Copy
A completely different side of Colombian music than you'd know from Discos Fuentes and some of the other mainstream outlets from that scene – as the tracks here are all from the contemporary underground, and represent a really rich flowering of creative grooves and soulful modes! In truth, ... CD
Brainfeeder, 2020. New Copy Gatefold
A tremendous album from Thundercat – an artist who just seems to get better and better with every new record, and who's maybe here defining a genre that's completely unto himself! The record is soulful, and has a lot of contemporary cosmic currents – but it's also more far-reaching and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jazz Liberatorz

Clin D'Oeil
Kif/P-Vine (Japan), 2007. New Copy
One of the hippest French albums we've heard in years – a laidback blend of hip hop and jazz that really lives up to the cover's homage to the legendary Black Jazz label! The Jazz Liberatorz have a great way with a groove – a style that's openly flowing and instrumentally jazzy – ... CD
Schema (Italy), 2009. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
A real rising star on Schema Records – composer Alessandro Magnanini, best known for his hit with Mario Biondi – stepping out here in a beautiful album of his own original music! There's a fresh feel here that really opens up a new chapter at Schema – still a bit of their old ... LP, Vinyl record album
Schema (Italy), 2020. New Copy
A fantastic album of grooves from the mighty Alex Puddu – and a record that's worth it alone for its guest work from Gene Robinson Jr on a few tracks – a singer whose voice was part of the classic sound of Breakwater! Puddu's groove has really shifted into the jazzy funk of Robinson's ... LP, Vinyl record album

Waajeed & Others

Detroit Love Vol 3
Planet E, 2019. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
We don't hear nearly enough from Waajeed as we'd like to – but he really returns to glory here on a stunning mix of underground tracks from the Detroit scene – all contemporaries of Waajeed, and part of that rich electronic legacy that he's given us from his early days on the city's ... LP, Vinyl record album

Linkwood & Greg Foat

Linkwood & Foat
Athens Of The North (UK), 2020. New Copy
A set that's more electronic than some of the other recent albums from Greg Foat, but a record that still fits nicely inside his style – that understated approach to keyboard-driven jazz – heavy on influences from the past, yet never delivered in a way that's too straightforward at all ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jimi Tenor

NY Hel Barca
Bureau B (Germany), 1990s/Early 2000s. New Copy 2CD
A collection of early work from Jimi Tenor – an artist who's maybe known best these days for his spiritual jazz and funk recordings, but one who sounded very different at the time of this material! Jimi issued much of this music on the Warp label back in the 90s – and although there's ... CD

Alex Puddu

Discotheque
Schema (Italy), 2020. New Copy
A fantastic album of grooves from the mighty Alex Puddu – and a record that's worth it alone for its guest work from Gene Robinson Jr on a few tracks – a singer whose voice was part of the classic sound of Breakwater! Puddu's groove has really shifted into the jazzy funk of Robinson's ... CD

Dining Rooms

Art Is A Cat
Schema (Italy), 2020. New Copy
Maybe the best album we've ever heard from Dining Rooms – a set that has the group moving way past just makers of seductive grooves, into wider, fuller territory that definitely puts them at the top shelf level we love from the best at Schema Records! The album balances some of their earlier ... CD
Mahogani, 2019. New Copy
A mighty soulful groove from Amp Fiddler – one that's maybe even more classic than his classic work – and that's really saying a lot! The Jayda G remix begins with just vocals and really spare Fender Rhodes – a stripped-down cut that kicks up the beat only when it's nice and ... 12-inch, Vinyl record

Boddhi Satva

18
BBE (UK), 2020. New Copy 2CD
A double-length collection of work from Boddhi Satva – a retrospective of sorts, as the package features tracks from the past 20 years of his career – but maybe more of a special celebration of his talents, as the album brings together special projects, collaborations, and under-exposed ... CD

Calibro 35

Momentum
Record Kicks (Italy), 2020. New Copy
Calibro 35 have certainly gained momentum in our book – as the group's given us more than a few albums over the years, and just keep sounding better and better with each new one! This set has the group still strongly in their core territory of Italian soundtrack and sound library funk – ... CD

Dexter Story

Bahir
Soundway (UK), 2019. New Copy
The world of Dexter Story just keeps getting bigger and bigger – not just because he's a richly collaborative player, but also because he's got this musical style that really opens up to so many different elements – but without ever sounding like he's trying to crash them together in ... LP, Vinyl record album

Daniel Maunick

Macumba Quebrada
Far Out (UK), 2019. New Copy
The first-ever full length set we've seen from Daniel Maunick – an artist who you might know from his remix work as Venom, or for his ties to the Incognito universe – given that Jean-Paul "Bluey" Maunick is his father! Yet the sound here is definitely Daniel's own – ... CD

Thundercat

It Is What It Is
Brainfeeder, 2020. New Copy
A tremendous album from Thundercat – an artist who just seems to get better and better with every new record, and who's maybe here defining a genre that's completely unto himself! The record is soulful, and has a lot of contemporary cosmic currents – but it's also more far-reaching and ... CD
Melodies International, Mid 90s. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)
Two mid 90s grooves from this underground British duo – one who were maybe more inspired by the early sounds of Detroit techno than Chicago house – but who also work here with a wonderful way of fusing the best of both! "Daylight" has a warm glow and lean groove – ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Nang (UK), 2019. New Copy
Situation really do a great job of transforming other folks' tunes here – so much so that the results are really a lot more their own than any sort of familiar remix modes – which is the CD is more of a full album by the band, then just a collection of cuts! Contemporary rhythms and ... CD

Bluke (Luke Vibert & BlueRum13)

Sense The Urgency
Ropeadope, 2019. New Copy
CD...$9.99 13.99
An unusual set of work from the ever-changing Luke Vibert – a collaboration with MC BlueRum13 – whose lyrics provide a great mix with Luke's beats and instrumentation on the album! All those crisp, creative elements that we love from older Vibert records are still very much in the mix ... CD

Million Dollar Orchestra

Better Days
BBE (UK), 2008. New Copy
Better days, indeed – as the set takes us back to our favorite club sounds of the late 70s – thanks to careful crafting from maestro Al Kent! The album's got a solid, soulful approach that's totally great – a return to a time when making dance music involved a full range of ... CD
Ninja Tune, 2020. New Copy Gatefold
Little Dragon's always got a great way with a tune – a way of folding together elements that are both sweet and crispy, but without ever sounding too sanded-down or sleepy – as so many others who hit this territory! Instead, there's a nice crackle to most tunes – tracks that ... LP, Vinyl record album

Badbadnotgood

IV (with download)
Innovative Leisure, 2016. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
Badbadnotgood have always been pretty damn great, actually – and never better than on album IV – a remarkable step forward for the group! As ever, they take inspiration from some of the best prog, jazz, funk (and proggy jazz funk...they blend) of the 70s and beyond, but weave it into ... LP, Vinyl record album
Black Pegasus, 2020. New Copy
A pair of side-long mixes by Trenton Odeneal – a DJ with a strong penchant for mixing eclectic, far reaching grooves into magnetic dancefloor shaking greatness! The 2 similar titled mixes here have similar titles but different vibes. "Get Down Trent" mixes up material with a lot of ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Planet E, 2019. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
A heavy helping of Detroit Love – and one that will also make you love Detroit too – or, at least, completely respect the city for having such a continually rewarding underground over the last few decades – long after the possibility of chart hits or bigger fame have passed! ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jimi Tenor

NY Hel Barca
Bureau B (Germany), 1990s/Early 2000s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
A collection of early work from Jimi Tenor – an artist who's maybe known best these days for his spiritual jazz and funk recordings, but one who sounded very different at the time of this material! Jimi issued much of this music on the Warp label back in the 90s – and although there's ... LP, Vinyl record album
Sonar Kollektiv (Germany), 2008. New Copy 3LP Gatefold (reissue)
A tremendous step forward for Jazzanova – an album that's overflowing with classic soul touches, and done in a style we'd hardly have expected from the group a few years before! Jazzanova have always had an ear for older sounds in their music – which is something that first set them ... LP, Vinyl record album

Kele

2042
Kola (UK), 2019. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
Really striking work from Kele – an artist who works in a space that's very much his own, but which follows in a strong British legacy of mashing up modes for political action – a trajectory that might start with Pop Group, and flow strongly through the Tricky and Portishead generation! ... LP, Vinyl record album
Super Sonic Jazz (Netherlands), 2020. New Copy 2LP
An assortment of work from the contemporary Dutch scene – music that's partly jazz, but which also has lots of 21st Century elements too – although never in a way that falls into any sort of too-easy remix of downtempo modes! Most of these artists use a fair bit of electric ... LP, Vinyl record album

Mop Mop

Kiss Of Kali
Infracom (Germany), 2008. New Copy 2LP
Jazzy grooves from Mop Mop – a set that we like even more than their hip first album, and which is filled with great work from a variety of different musicians! The vibe here is a lot more acoustic than the last time around, although the sound moves past the straighter style of club jazz ... LP, Vinyl record album

Black Jazz Consortium

Evolution Of Light (3LP set)
Perpetual, 2019. New Copy 3LP
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 ... LP, Vinyl record album
Kryptox (Germany), 2019. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
A great little collection that's everything it promises in the title – a survey of the current German underground, with a focus on the best bands who've been inspired by the styles of the past! Apart from Karl Hector & The Malcouns, all the other work here is new to our ears – and ... LP, Vinyl record album
Hot Casa (France), 2020. New Copy (pic cover)
A great little funky single from Franck Biyong – part of his continuing evolution and growth as one of the leading lights in the contemporary Afro Funk underground – an artist who's really moved past some of the slavish styles of years behind! Franck adds in both live drums and rhythm ... 12-inch, Vinyl record

Dining Rooms

Art Is A Cat
Schema (Italy), 2020. New Copy 2LP
Maybe the best album we've ever heard from Dining Rooms – a set that has the group moving way past just makers of seductive grooves, into wider, fuller territory that definitely puts them at the top shelf level we love from the best at Schema Records! The album balances some of their earlier ... LP, Vinyl record album

Arp Frique & Erik Ritfeld

Improvised Suites For Analog Machines
Colourful World (Netherlands), 2019. New Copy
A really fantastic set of keyboard sounds – a record that features improvised duets between Arp Frique and Erik Ritfeld – who each switch up their machines on every different track! At the core of the record is an Elka Drummer One rhythm box and a Roland Space Echo – but then ... LP, Vinyl record album

Nu Era (Marc Mac)

Evolve
Omniverse (UK), 2019. New Copy
Evolve is a great title for this full length set – as Marc Mac is one of the few talents from the 4Hero generation who's really evolved over the years, and who's continued to give us some really incredible music – a jazz-based take on the realm of beats and keyboards, with a cosmic-drive ... LP, Vinyl record album

Dego

Too Much
2000 Black (UK), 2019. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
A fantastic full length set from Dego – one of the few members of the 4Hero scene who've kept the music flowing and growing into new territory in recent years – especially with the same longform vibe that we always loved from that legendary group! Although short doses of cosmic sound ... LP, Vinyl record album

Calibro 35

Momentum
Record Kicks (Italy), 2020. New Copy Gatefold
Calibro 35 have certainly gained momentum in our book – as the group's given us more than a few albums over the years, and just keep sounding better and better with each new one!

Tummy Touch/P-Vine (Japan), 1999. New Copy
A massive bit of blue-eyed soul – recorded on the London scene of the late 90s, but put together with a vibe that takes us back to early 70s LA! The sticker on the front of the original record promises links to Steely Dan and Jamiroquai – and the sound of the record definitely lives up ... CD

Gerardo Frisina

Hi Note
Schema (Italy), 2003. New Copy 2LP
Hi Note, indeed! Gerardo Frisina's latest is awe-inspiring – a completely seamless blend of Italian and Latin jazz, bossa rhythms and percussion, and some of the most tasteful and naturally blended electronic elements you could ever expect to hear on an album so steeped in a genuine affinity ... LP, Vinyl record album

Nicola Conte

Jet Sounds (full LP)
Schema/Fez (Italy), 2000. New Copy 2LP
Wonderful wonderful wonderful – and one of the best albums we've ever heard of modern bossa and soundtrack grooves! For years, Nicola Conte has been a seminal force in the new Italian scene – working as a DJ, promoter, producer, and sometimes recording artist under the odd 12" ... LP, Vinyl record album

Smuggler Brothers

Musicone
Schema (Italy), 2019. New Copy
Heavy funk from Smuggler Brothers – an Italian group who start out in the vintage cop/crime modes of 70s soundtracks, but then bring in a whole host of different elements to play in the mix! The core grooves are heavy on bass, drums, and lots of nice keyboards – but there lots more ... CD
Virgin, 1998. New Copy 2CD
A heavier, darker prime era set from Massive Attack – and rightly remembered as a classic! The grooves are still really strong, but the trip hop pioneers are delving more deeply into a bass heavy dub trip with a deep, rumbling bottom running throughout the tracks and some distorted guitar and ... CD
Brownswood (UK), 2019. New Copy
The sound of tomorrow, coming to you today – thanks to this excellent Future Bubblers series on Brownswood Records! The series is something of an offshoot of the longer-running Brownswood Bubblers – which has turned us onto great new music for many years – and the "future&quo ... LP, Vinyl record album

Da Lata

Birds
Da La Music (UK), 2019. New Copy
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 ... LP, Vinyl record album
Planet E, 2019. New Copy 2CD
A heavy helping of Detroit Love – and one that will also make you love Detroit too – or, at least, completely respect the city for having such a continually rewarding underground over the last few decades – long after the possibility of chart hits or bigger fame have passed! ... CD

Chris Bowden

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

Rejoicer

Spiritual Sleaze
Stones Throw, 2020. New Copy
Nothing too sleazy here – as the music has a laidback vibe that never comes on too strong – and which instead has this gently soulful flow of keyboards, electronics, guitars, and some occasional acoustic bits on violin, piano, and even a bit of glass! The work is maybe a bit more ... LP, Vinyl record album
