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
Versatile (France), 2017. New Copy
Style, genre and time period transcending electro from French combo Zombie Zombie! The trio blends the spare electronic moodcraft of retro futurist soundtrack influences, the slowbuilding atmosphere of classic European art rock instrumentals, and dancefloor ready beats into a vibe that recalls a ... LP, Vinyl record album
808 Sessions – Acid Jazz/Acid Dub
Strictly Jaz Unit, 2017. New Copy
Bubbly club grooves from Glenn Underground! As you might guess from the title "Acid Jazz", it's not merely a showcase from the classic 808 drum machine beat as utilized by mighty GU, but it's the perfect backdrop and foil for the spacey keys. "Acid Dub" starts off tightly ... 12-inch, Vinyl record

Do You Want Me/The DJ Knows What I Like
Noble Square, 2011/2017. New Copy (reissue)
A nice mix of non-stop dancefloor and genuine bit of soul! "Do You Want Me" kicks off with keys and vocals before the beats come in, and works well is kind of tripped out soul tune before the clubbier vibes take full sail. Dual purpose grooves! "The DJ Knows What I Like" tells ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Blak Muzik, 2017. New Copy
A couple jams by Anthony Nicholson that are appropriately titled, and transcend expecations at the same time! "Darkwave Disko" has the feel of 80s style European disco of the post pop crossover era, with moody enough of vibe to earn the nocturnal nametag. "Chillout Girls" is a ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Strictly Jaz Unit, 2017. New Copy
A tight couple dancefloor gems by from Boo Williams! "Reckless Ending" is billed as a tribute to GU, and it's pretty nice ride – rolling along on a pretty fast moving beat with light, melodic keys floating over. "Out The Game" has a steadier, pounding club beat and also ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
So We Gwarn
Sound Signature, 2017. New Copy
Fantastic sounds from Dego and Kaidi Tatham – a duo we've been loving since their post-4Hero work as Silhouette Brown – a team who've only gotten better and better as the years go on! There's a soaring vision here that's way more than club – even though there's some clubbier ... CD

Sound Signature, 2017. New Copy
A great idea for a series – contemporary tracks from the Detroit underground – all waiting to be issued as singles by the Sound Signature label – but all delayed because of the big backlog at pressing plants in these "vinyl madness" years! We're huge fans of the CD ... CD

Sonar Kollektiv (Germany), 2017. New Copy 2LP
Jazzanova are maybe best remembered for their early Compost Records releases from the German scene – tracks that really helped reintroduce jazz and Brazilian modes to the contemporary dancefloors back in the 90s! In the years since those now-classic releases, Jazzanova have moved more ... LP, Vinyl record album
2000 Black (UK), 2017. New Copy
A beautiful little EP – and like so many of the recent releases on 2000 Black, a record that's much shorter than an album, but seems to deliver the same sort of satisfaction! Lordamercy helps give Dego a vibe that's a bit different than usual – as "Green Woods" has these ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
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
Onda
Schema (Italy), 2017. New Copy
A beautifully collaborative project from S-Tone – aka Stefano Tirone – done in a way that makes his already warm grooves sound even better than usual! The album's got a blend of modern production and older Brazilian music references – not the more mainstream bossa remix style, ... CD
Fisherman Abides
Alpha Pup, 2017. New Copy
Really beautiful stuff from this very cool group – music that seems to resonate in a special space between 70s AOR and underground pop of the following decade – touched by some jazz aspects in the instrumentation, and delivered with a vibe that's as as poetic as the title! The core ... CD
Monk's Playhouse
Blue Note/Universal (Japan), 2017. New Copy
A wonderful reimagining of the music of Thelonious Monk – one that's done in a melange of jazz and contemporary elements – in a style that's very similar to the time that Madlib visited Blue Note over a decade ago! As with that set, there's a real 21st Century vibe here – a ... 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
Brownswood (UK), 2017. New Copy
A dozen volumes in – and this wonderful series is still going strong – an incredibly solid, incredibly trustworthy collection of all that's great in the global underground! Gilles Peterson has been opening up our ears for decades, and he's never let us down – and, as before, ... LP, Vinyl record album
Heavenly Sweetness (France), 2017. New Copy
The Heavenly Sweetness label celebrates its first tne years in business – with a special birthday present of all-exclusive tracks! This set doesn't look back at the previous decade of the label, but instead points the way forward – with a wonderful selection of newly-recorded tracks by ... CD
