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
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

Thievery Corporation

Symphonik
Eighteenth Street Lounge, 2020. New Copy
The title here certainly gets it right – as the album marks a huge new step for Thievery Corporation – the first full record in which the group works with orchestral accompaniment – a move that's maybe long overdue, given how much these guys were initially influenced by older ... 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

Sean Khan

Muriel
Far Out (UK), 2015. New Copy
CD...$7.99 16.99
An insanely wonderful set from Sean Khan – maybe the greatest music he's done since his early classics with the SK Radicals! This album really takes us back to a time when music from London was completely fresh and exciting, and cosmically soulful, too – and Sean's got help from some ... CD

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

Turn On The Sunlight (Carlos Nino & Friends)

Warm Waves
Astrollage (Japan), 2020. New Copy
A beautiful record that continues the long legacy of spiritual, meditative sounds we've heard from Carlos Nino over the years – and, like most of his recent work, a set that almost seems to define a genre unto itself! The record is a bit hard to peg – as there's definitely some of the ... 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

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

Meroli

Notturni
Space Echo (Italy), 2021. New Copy
The sounds of night, served up by Alessandro Meroli – moody music that's in the mellower side of the downtempo mode – often as much atmospheric and soundtrack-ish as beat-oriented – which is what you might expect, given that one of the tracks is dedicated to film score legend ... CD

Voilaaa (Patchworks)

Voicii
Favorite (France), 2021. New Copy
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, ... CD

Nicola Conte & Gianluca Petrella

People Need People
Schema (Italy), 2021. New Copy
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 ... 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
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 – ... LP, Vinyl record album

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

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

Jneiro Jarel

After A Thousand Years
Far Out (UK), 2020. New Copy
Jneiro Jarel has always been way more than just a hip hop producer – even his earliest records were a bit hard to peg, and this excellent set not only pushes that bar forward a heck of a lot, but it also firmly suits the album's placement on the Far Out label! Far Out's best known for its ... CD

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
Sonorama Discos, 2019. New Copy
Something of a split single from Don Cuco – a set that features him remixing a track by Ibeyi on side one – really expanding on the warm vocals of the sister duo, with beats that are gentle and glowing, but which move nicely in a strong sort of Afro House mode! The flipside features ... 12-inch, Vinyl record

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
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

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

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

Far Out Monster Disco Orchestra

Far Out Monster Disco Orchestra
Far Out (UK), 2014. New Copy 2 CDs
CD...$9.99 19.99
A really wonderful project that was years in the making – a mix of American club and Brazilian elements – put together by a group that includes members of Azymuth and Banda Black Rio, as well as the legendary Arthur Verocai! Jose Roberto Bertrami's the strongest contributor here – ... CD

Kon

On My Way
BBE (UK), 2013. New Copy
CD...$8.99 14.99
The first full album we've ever heard from Kon – and a really soulful set that follows strongly off his famous mixtapes and compilations with Amir! As on those gems, there's a very classic sound going on here – a strong love of the best moments of 70s soul, funk, and club – ... CD

Dimlite

Prismic Tops
Now Again, 2010. New Copy
CD...$6.99 14.98
Abstract beats with a depth of global influences from Dimlite – the Swiss beatmaker/producer's debut for the Now Again/Stones Throw – and far reaching effort that covers a lot of aural atmosphere over its running time! Dimlite's work for Sonar Kollectiv was among the most forward ... 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 ... LP, Vinyl record album
BBE (UK), 2000s. New Copy 2 CDs
CD...$8.99 22.99
The mighty DJ Spinna has a way of making already-great music sound even greater – by using just the right sort of soulful touch to augment subtle elements in the original tunes that might have otherwise gone overlooked – to unlock a richer, more righteous energy that really serves the ... CD
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

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 ... 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
Warp, 2014. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
Flying Lotus is not only very much alive on You're Dead! – he's as lively as ever – delivering his best, most diverse record to date! The Flying Lotus sound is in peak form here – glitchy beats and spacey keyboards, deftly layered samples, and carrying boundless influences from ... LP, Vinyl record album

Thievery Corporation

Temple Of I & I
ESL, 2017. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
Maybe one of the most sharp-edged albums in years from Thievery Corporation – if not ever – thanks to the presence of a fair bit of hip hop guest stars, in a large roster of talent that includes Mr Lif, Raquel Jones, Zee, Notch, Lou Lou Ghelichkhani, Shana Halligan, Elin Melgarejo, and ... 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

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 ... CD
Warp, 2020. New Copy 2LP
We really loved the Flamagra album from Flying Lotus, but this set of instrumentals maybe shows off even more of the deeper currents in his music! The record's not the usual instrumental variant – in that these tracks don't really come across as cuts with the vocals removed – and ... LP, Vinyl record album
People Of Rhythm, 2020. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
It's been a bit since we last heard from Wagon Christ, but that strong Luke Vibert sense of humor and production is still very much in place – the kind of cuts that first made WC one of the reigning talents of a new generation of sounds many years ago – still very much at the top of the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jameszoo & Metropole Orkest

Melkweg
Brainfeeder, 2020. New Copy 2LP
A really beautiful collaboration between Jameszoo and the Metropole Orkest – that large Dutch ensemble who seem always able to shift into the right sort of mode with their key collaborators! That's definitely the case here, as Jules Buckley masterfully leads the group – so that they ... LP, Vinyl record album
Schema (Italy), 2020. New Copy
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 ... CD

Smokin The Jazz

Some Jazzy Steez
Loud Minority (Japan), 2019. New Copy
A sharp second set from this up-and-coming Japanese combo – one of the few to really find the right combination between jazz and hip hop, and deliver the music without any sense of cliche at all! These guys take things backwards from a jazz sample generation of hip hop – adding in more ... CD

Smuggler Brothers

Musicone (with bonus CD)
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 ... LP, Vinyl record album

Linkwood & Other Lands

Face The Facts
Athens Of The North (UK), 2020. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
Sweet grooves from Linkwood – served up in the kind of keyboard-heavy style of his collaboration with Greg Foat, but even more upbeat and 80s-styled overall! The tunes here really recall the best sound of 80s electro soul – all instrumental, with a really classic vibe to the keyboard ... LP, Vinyl record album

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
Tru Thoughts (UK), 2020. New Copy 2LP
A mighty nice entry in the Shapes series – and like recent efforts, a vinyl package that follows up a previous digital-only release – featuring the best cuts in a physical package! As with other collections in the Shapes series, the music here is from a much wider version of the Tru ... LP, Vinyl record album

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
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
Melting Pot (Germany), 2020. New Copy Gatefold
A very cool project from the contemporary London scene – a set that's equal parts soul and jazz, new production and hip hop – all served up as a community project that grew out of the legendary venue Total Refreshment Centre! That spot has given us some really groundbreaking ... LP, Vinyl record album
Staubgold (Germany), 2020. New Copy 2LP
A great assortment of funky jazzy cuts from recent years – a stunning package that shows just how much the love of jazz on the dancefloor has exploded in the contemporary underground – in ways that are so different than the modes of decades back! Yes, there was a time when "jazz&qu ... LP, Vinyl record album
Schema (Italy), 2009. New Copy 2CD
A long-overdue collection of all the mixes, side-projects, and rare "Nicola Conte version" tracks that have cropped up in the past decade or so – work that's every bit as great as the material Conte includes on his own albums and singles! Nicola Conte's not a remixer – he's a ... CD

Jneiro Jarel

After A Thousand Years
Far Out (UK), 2020. New Copy
Jneiro Jarel has always been way more than just a hip hop producer – even his earliest records were a bit hard to peg, and this excellent set not only pushes that bar forward a heck of a lot, but it also firmly suits the album's placement on the Far Out label! Far Out's best known for its ... LP, Vinyl record album
