Hiatus Kaiyote

Mood Valiant
Brainfeeder, 2021. New Copy
Hiatus Kaiyote are one of those groups that just seem to grow and grow with each new about – a strongly soulful act at their start, but one who've found a way to carve out sounds and styles that are very much their own – maybe almost making themselves a genre in the process! Things ... CD

Kaidi Tatham

Insight To All Minds
First Word (UK), 2021. New Copy 2LP
An album that sparkles with joy and life from the very first note – but that's also what we've really come to expect from Kaidi Tatham in all the many years he's given us music! Tatham is one of a few key talents from the London scene at the start of the century to continue to stay vital and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Mount Fuji Doomjazz Corporation

Egor
Denovali, 2012. New Copy
A live recording from the Mount Fuji Doomjazz group – the alter ego for the Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble, and working here in very similar territory – but with longer tracks that space the sound out even more! Despite the live performance of the group, the sound still has all the ... CD

Voilaaa (Patchworks)

Voicii
Favorite (France), 2021. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
We've loved the music of Bruno "Patchworks" Hovart in all its many forms for years – but over time, this Voilaaa project might well be our favorite – as it really gives Patchworks a way to blend past and present, while also reaching out over the space of the globe! As before, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sean Khan with Hermeto Pascoal

Palmares Fantasy
Far Out (UK), 2018. New Copy
CD...$8.99 16.99
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! Sean got his start on the broken beat scene a number of years back, and has slowly been evolving into more of a jazz-based artist – which he hits ... CD
Brainfeeder, 2021. New Copy Gatefold
Hiatus Kaiyote are one of those groups that just seem to grow and grow with each new about – a strongly soulful act at their start, but one who've found a way to carve out sounds and styles that are very much their own – maybe almost making themselves a genre in the process! Things ... LP, Vinyl record album

Linkwood & Other Lands

Mono
Athens Of The North (UK), 2021. New Copy
"Mono" might seem to be a strange word to use in relation to the music of Linkwood – as his sets always have a very spacious, stretched-out sort of sound – one that's hardly the stuff of a one-channel recording! Yet here, Linkwood strips things down in a nice way – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Dining Rooms

Tre
Schema (Italy), 2003. New Copy 2LP
The 3rd album by The Dining Rooms (in case you couldn't guess by the title!) – and the best so far! These guys have really matured from earlier outings – moving into a sophisticated realm of downtempo soundscapes crafted with a great deal of care, and which are put together with a lot ... LP, Vinyl record album
Brainfeeder, 2021. New Copy
Hiatus Kaiyote are one of those groups that just seem to grow and grow with each new about – a strongly soulful act at their start, but one who've found a way to carve out sounds and styles that are very much their own – maybe almost making themselves a genre in the process! Things ... LP, Vinyl record album
Forever Living Originals (UK), 2020. New Copy
A record with an unassuming cover, but with a deeply soulful sound that comes across right away – a spare blend of simple beats and well-crafted basslines, topped with vocals that almost seem like they're trying hard not to get in the way of the groove! The approach is great – gently ... CD
Forever Living Originals (UK), 2020. New Copy
Sault have always been fantastic, but it also seems that with each new release, they get even more powerful and progressive – opening up a more radical agenda that really comes through in their music! The group don't state their position with the title of the record – which is ... CD

Gerardo Frisina

Rhythmic Conversations
Schema (Italy), 2018. New Copy
Some of the rootsiest work we've heard in years from the mighty Gerardo Frisina – a set that still has his rhythm programs in the mix, but combined with loads of acoustic drums, percussion, piano and vibes – all given some sweet touches by occasional Fender Rhodes solos as well! The ... LP, Vinyl record album
Bureau B (Germany), 1990s. New Copy 2CD
Early work from Jimi Tenor – the Finnish artist you might know for his work in the fields of jazz, soul, and funk in our current century – but who was a very different musician in the years before! Jimi still has a soulful vibe on these early tracks, but the music is much more electric ... CD

Afro Soul Prophecy

Heat In The City
Schema (Italy), 2021. New Copy
A bright new groove on the Schema Records label – but one that features work from some of the company's real heavyweights in recent years – as the album was conceived and produced by Lucio Cantone (aka Invisible Session), and features tunes written by the funky Alex Puddu – all in ... CD

Invisible Session

Echoes Of Africa
Space Echo (Italy), 2021. New Copy
There's plenty of Afro Funk influence in this album from Invisible Session – a long-running act who've given us a number of excellent records on the Schema label – but there's also plenty of the group's own spirit too, thanks in part to trombone and keyboards from the mighty Gianluca ... CD

Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble

Mutations EP
Denovali, 2009. New Copy
The second album from this unusual ensemble – a group who maybe take the "dark" in their name a bit more strongly than the "jazz" – and who work here without any real connection to the culture of Kilimanjaro at all! Yet despite that distinction, there's definitely ... CD
Sony (Italy), 2020. New Copy
A great little package that expands on the tune "Paradise" – one of the catchiest numbers in years from the raspy-voiced genius of Mario Biondi – a contemporary singer, but one who's perfect for turning out soulful tracks that really hearken back to the bast! Here, Biondi ... LP, Vinyl record album

Kutiman

Wachaga
Siyal (Israel), 2020. New Copy
Much deeper work than we're used to hearing from Kutiman – and a set that's really widened the global scope of their sounds and influences! At the start, these guys were a funk group with a mix of psychedelic and 70s Afro-oriented influences – but they've really expanded here, and ... CD

Oscar Jerome

Breathe Deep
Caroline, 2020. New Copy
The striking debut of Oscar Jerome – a UK singer/songwriter who works with a fair bit of jazzy elements here – thanks in part to some Rhodes and keyboards from Joe-Armon Jones! The set's the kind of genre-stepping record that we'd expect from some of Jones' London contemporaries – ... CD

2000 Black

Next Set A Rockers
2000 Black (UK), 2008. New Copy
It's been 10 years since 2000 Black first started catching our ears, and they've never sounded better! This album's way more than just a "next set" of grooves from the pair – as it really shows a growth over time, a unified musical vision that has them hitting some of the same ... CD
Mo Wax/Universal (UK), 2018. New Copy
A great collection of tracks from the documentary on the man behind Mo Wax Records – Unkle/James Lavelle – an artist in his own right, and a creative force who helped shape the sound of a generation! The package includes not only some key cuts from the Mo Wax catalog, but also tunes ... CD

Far Out Monster Disco Orchestra

Black Sun
Far Out (UK), 2018. New Copy
CD...$9.99 16.99
Fantastic sounds from the Far Out Monster Disco Orchestra – a group with family ties to Azymuth and Incognito, and who work here in the best blend of Brazilian and soulful elements that might imply! The ensemble is a crowning achievement for the Far Out label – a summation of all the ... CD

Blundetto

Good Good Things
Heavenly Sweetness (France), 2020. New Copy
The title might seem familiar – given that Blundetto's first album was called Bad Bad Things – but this record really shows a strong evolution of his sound over the ten years since that release – the shifting sense of sound between hip hop, global roots, and more dynamic elements ... CD
Stubs (UK), 2005. New Copy
A much-needed full length set from RSL – a trio who've grabbed plenty of attention with their initial singles, but who sound even better on an extended session! The group's got some instrumentation that's very much after our hearts – Fender Rhodes, organ, and theremin – all used ... CD
Kryptox (Germany), 2021. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
A second great overview of the contemporary German underground – a fertile world of music that shows that plenty has happened over there since the glory days of the Compost and Sonar Kollektiv scenes! The music here is only partly jazz – maybe jazz-inspired, but served up in a variety ... LP, Vinyl record album
Forever Living Originals (UK), 2020. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
Sault have always been fantastic, but it also seems that with each new release, they get even more powerful and progressive – opening up a more radical agenda that really comes through in their music! The group don't state their position with the title of the record – which is ... LP, Vinyl record album
Mochilla, 2010. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)
J Dilla was always way more than just a hip hop artist – a visionary creator who was taken from us all too soon, given strong tribute here by the mighty talents of Miguel Atwood Ferguson – a contemporary of Dilla, and a similarly visionary talent! The music here was recorded live ... 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

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! The record's got this very tripped-out sort of vibe – very much in keeping with the image on the cover – and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Four Tet

New Energy
Text, 2017. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
Some of the lushest, most melodic material from Four Tet yet – straight up beautiful for the most part – and a pretty strong contender for his best to date! He's blending electronics and more natural sounds in ways that aren't out of character given his past work, but the title is ... LP, Vinyl record album
Warp, 2012. New Copy 2LP
The best yet from Flying Lotus – who we keep allowing ourselves to believe has hit an insurmountable peak with each new record – but he just keeps getting better! Where the preceding Cosmogramma upped the stranger, spacier and more abstract textures, Until The Quiet Comes is a bit more ... LP, Vinyl record album

Str4ta (Jean-Paul Bluey Maunick)

Aspects
Brownswood (UK), 2021. New Copy
A contemporary set, but one with a vibe that stretches back to the glory days of early 80s funk in England – served up by Jean-Paul "Bluey" Maunick, of Incognito fame – a talent whose contributions were key to the scene back in the day! If you know Bluey, you'll know his ... CD

Mario Biondi

Dare
Sony (Italy), 2021. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
Mario Biondi looks a bit angelic on the cover, but his vocals are still nicely down to earth – that wonderfully raspy charm that made us love his music right from the start, and which makes Mario one of the key folks to carry forward the legacy of older jazz singers like Mark Murphy or Mose ... LP, Vinyl record album

Nicola Conte & Gianluca Petrella

People Need People
Schema (Italy), 2021. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
A more spiritual soul-based setting than usual for the talents of Nicola Conte – a long-awaited full length set, served up after a host of 12" single collaborations with Gianluca Petrella! Petrella's presence is felt in the way the tunes unfold – often with strong contributions ... LP, Vinyl record album
Parlophone, 2020. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
A 20th anniversary celebration of the groundbreaking album Tourist from St Germain – that creative combination of jazz and dancefloor rhythms that made for one of the biggest hits on Blue Note at the start of the century! This set's not an expanded version of that set, though – as the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Bureau B (Germany), 1990s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
Early work from Jimi Tenor – the Finnish artist you might know for his work in the fields of jazz, soul, and funk in our current century – but who was a very different musician in the years before! Jimi still has a soulful vibe on these early tracks, but the music is much more electric ... LP, Vinyl record album

Space Echo (Italy), 2021. New Copy
There's plenty of Afro Funk influence in this album from Invisible Session – a long-running act who've given us a number of excellent records on the Schema label – but there's also plenty of the group's own spirit too, thanks in part to trombone and keyboards from the mighty Gianluca ... LP, Vinyl record album

Gerardo Frisina

Moving Ahead
Schema (Italy), 2020. New Copy 2LP
The cover image is a bit different than the modernist images usually used for records by Italian maestro Gerardo Frisina, and the sound is a bit different too – maybe less Latin or Brazilian than some of his previous records, but still filled with lots of percussion at the core! There's ... LP, Vinyl record album
At Home Sound (Japan), 2021. New Copy
A fantastic collection of grooves from contemporary Japan, but one that's heavy on all the best 70s elements that have always influenced the scene – served up here in a mix of jazz, soul, funk, and Brazilian elements by the mighty Ryuhei The Man! Ryuhei has turned us on to plenty of great ... CD

S Tone Inc

Body & Soul
Schema (Italy), 2020. New Copy
The funkiest album so far from Stefano Tirone – aka S Tone – a set that's got a much clubbier vibe than some of his other records, and a very strong influence both from vintage boogie and funky jazz! Tirone plays plenty of Wurlitzer and other keyboards on the set – and most tunes ... LP, Vinyl record album

Mario Biondi

Dare
Sony (Italy), 2021. New Copy
Mario Biondi looks a bit angelic on the cover, but his vocals are still nicely down to earth – that wonderfully raspy charm that made us love his music right from the start, and which makes Mario one of the key folks to carry forward the legacy of older jazz singers like Mark Murphy or Mose ... CD

Calibro 35

Post-Momentum EP
Record Kicks (Italy), 2021. New Copy
A short step forward for Calibro 35 – but a damn funky one too! The set's a follow-up to the previous Momentum album, and it shows some strong new territory after the dark days of 2020 – with a leadoff track that adds in rhymes from Ensi E Ghemon to the core cinematic funk of "Stan ... LP, Vinyl record album

Hiatus Kaiyote

Mood Valiant
Brainfeeder, 2021. New Copy
Hiatus Kaiyote are one of those groups that just seem to grow and grow with each new about – a strongly soulful act at their start, but one who've found a way to carve out sounds and styles that are very much their own – maybe almost making themselves a genre in the process! Things ... LP, Vinyl record album
2000 Black (UK), 2021. New Copy
The mighty Dego is one of the few talents who can keep coming up with unusual rhythms year after year – the kind of mindblowing music that first made us love him so many years back, touched with an even more sophisticated understanding of the jazzy currents that he works with! Dego's the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sault

7
Forever Living Originals (UK), 2019. New Copy
Just two matchsticks on the cover, but a sound that's wonderfully rich and deep – a special blend of righteous message and understated grooves – all served up at a level that really sets Sault apart from the rest! Production is by Inflo, who keeps things spare and crisp – but ... CD

Sault

5
Forever Living Originals (UK), 2019. New Copy
A sweet little record from Sault – a group with a sound that's unlike anybody else we can think of, and which has a lot more warmth than you might guess from the spare look of the cover! There's almost a tribal quality to the rhythms at times – although they're also nicely understated ... CD

Mistura Pura

Blue Bus
Ubiquity, 2020. New Copy 2LP
Mistura Pura, aka Federica Grappasonni, is as much of a vinyl collector as a producer and musician – and that depth of musical interest really comes through in this double length set! The tracks have lots of elements that draw on styles from the 60s and 70s – but the beats are often ... LP, Vinyl record album

Alton Miller

Souls Like Mine
R2/Music Institute Detroit, 2007. New Copy 2LP (reissue)
Maybe the greatest moment ever from Detroit underground figure Alton Miller – one of those records from the early part of this century that really marked a moment of new sounds and styles in soul music! The album's way more than just the sort of house that Miller was first known for – ... 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
