Ocha, 2019. New Copy
A nicely bubbling, languorous club jam from Coflo & Lady C! "Easy" as an easily gliding tempo with uncommonly strong touches – from the breezily soulful vocals, to the Rhodes grooving in the mix to searing electric guitar in the mix. Includes the vocal & instrumental. 12-inch, Vinyl record

Reel People

Retroflection Remixed
Reel People (UK), 2019. New Copy
Excellent remix version of Reel People's fantastic Retroflection – one that you can almost look to as an equally great alternative version of it – with remixes by Atjazz, John Morales, Terry Hunter, Tall Black Guy, DJ Spinna and others! The warmly collaborative spirit of the original ... 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

Mark De Clive-Lowe

Heritage II
Mashibeats/Ropeadope, 2019. New Copy
A beautiful second volume in the Heritage series from keyboard genius Mark De Clive Lowe – and one that we like even more than the first!

Nicola Conte

Other Directions
Schema (Italy), 2004. New Copy 2LP
Incredible work from Nicola Conte – Schema records maestro making his Blue Note debut with this set – and giving the label one of their best new albums of the 21st Century! The record's quite different than Nicola's programmed dancefloor work for Schema – and is much more of an ... LP, Vinyl record album
Heavenly Sweetness (France), 2018. New Copy 2LP
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 ... LP, Vinyl record album

Flying Lotus

Flamagra
Warp, 2019. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
Fantastic sounds from Flying Lotus – an artist who just keeps on pushing past any conventional expectations, to a point where his music is almost a genre unto itself!

Anthony Joseph

People Of The Sun

Anthony Joseph takes a trip back to his roots – recording this album in his home turf of Trinidad, for a set that may well be his best record to date!

Rongetz Foundation

Alphabet City Music Club
Brooklyn Butterfly, 2019. New Copy
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 ... LP, Vinyl record album

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

Nicolay & The Hot Nights

Glaciers
Foreign Exchange, 2018. New Copy Gatefold
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!

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
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

Chiminyo

I Am Chiminyo EP
Gearbox (UK), 2019. New Copy
Pretty amazing work from Chiminyo – aka jazz drummer Tim Doyle, who also finds a way to trigger samples when he plays – creating this one-man sound on the record that really comes as quite a surprise!

Mark De Clive-Lowe

Heritage
Mashibeats/Ropeadope, 2019. New Copy
We've loved the music of Mark De Clive-Lowe for many years – and he's really rewarded us with a continuing evolution of his sound and style – to a point where a record like this is nothing that we might have expected over a decade ago! The set's a live jazz performance, but still ... LP, Vinyl record album
Cinevox (Italy), 2018. New Copy
A pretty cool contemporary group – one who are lucky enough to record for the legendary Cinevox soundtrack label, and who have a sound that definitely matches the vibe of that company's long legacy of music! The style here is very cinematic at times – with some slinky, groovy moments ... CD
Ubiquity, 2018. New Copy 2LP
Maybe the strongest album so far from Bosq – and certainly one of the most wide-ranging too – given that the group have a strong global bent to their groove, and they've also made space for a host of guest stars who include Nicole Willis, Bruno Morais, Monolog, and Kaleta! The music is ... LP, Vinyl record album

Giovanni Damico

Boogie Tracks
Star Creature, 2019. New Copy
A sweet set of largely instrumental Italo electro funk and spacey 80s synth soul inspired grooves from Giovanni Damico!

Liquid Pegasus

Toby Glider EP
Star Creature, 2019. New Copy
Spare, simple grooves from Liquid Pegasus – but surprisingly sweet as well – with a warm Cali finish that glows with the sunny vibe of the cover!

Edgewood Estate, 2017. New Copy
A nice bit of soulful house – plus a handful of solid alternate mixes – feels pretty blissful, actually! The original mix is sparely furnished in the best kind of way, with a compelling beat and soul steeped vocal. The Damp Velour + Intimacy mix moves a bit faster, but keeps the ... 12-inch, Vinyl record

BBE (UK), 2000s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold

LP, Vinyl record album
Brownswood (UK), 2018. New Copy
A lucky number 13 for the Brownswood Bubblers series – a great reminder that the compilation is still one of the best places we know for getting turned onto new music from the global underground! And by that, we don't mean the lame dance music "underground" of more than a decade ... CD

Mark De Clive-Lowe

Heritage II

Eastronic, 2019. New Copy
A tribute to classic sound library styles – served up here by the duo of MRR (Michael Raymond Russell) and GLK (The Gaslamp Killer) – but in a mode that's maybe more in keeping with their own musical styles overall! There's definitely elements of funk in the mix, and some spookier ... LP, Vinyl record album
Mo Wax/Island, 1998. New Copy 2LP (reissue)
One of the principal albums in trip hop's ascension into the mainstream, and the bright, extroverted flipside to Portishead's darker vision of the late 90s scene. Mo Wax honcho James Lavelle's longstanding Unkle project got a massive makeover when DJ Shadow became the prime sonic architect for the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Soul Jazz (UK), 1996. New Copy 2LP Gatefold

Cinematic Orchestra

To Believe
Domino, 2019. New Copy 2LP

Peacefrog (UK), 1996. New Copy 2LP (reissue)

At a time when few folks were going for higher ideas, Beltran was right out there bringing a new sense of spirit to club music – almost echoing ... LP, Vinyl record album
Dolfin, 2018. New Copy
Jon Bap really breaks down the concept of a typical song here – as some tunes are more short bursts of sound, others are more lyrically oriented – and together, they all make for one hell of a compelling album! Things can be pretty abstract one minute, then funky and soulful the next ... LP, Vinyl record album
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 2 LPs
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

Monta At Odds

Argentum Dreams
Cosmic City, 2018. New Copy
Dreamy cosmic keys and atmospheric beats spearheaded by the brotherly duo of Dedric & Delaney Moore – working in a downtempo mode, but really kind of transcending it with some strong songwriting and soulful vocals!

Papa (UK), 2018. New Copy (pic cover)
Navasha Daya is light years away from her roots with Fertile Ground – singing here on two massive cuts from Reel People – both of which elevate her to legendary soul diva status! Daya is incredible on the version of the Kashif tune "I'm In Love" – hitting a level that ... 12-inch, Vinyl record

Sean Khan with Hermeto Pascoal

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!

Hieroglyphic Being

Red Notes
Soul Jazz (UK), 2018. New Copy Gatefold
