Afro Patterns EP
Division 81, 2018. New Copy
Club music hero Alton Miller fuses of African inspired rhythms and percussion styles with the sleek bounce of Detroit dancefloors!

Soundway (UK), 2018. New Copy 2LP
Julien Dyne has a great sense of pulse and a chunky approach to rhythm here – almost as if he's taking a cut-and-paste approach to more conventional club music, yet still staying soulful in the process! We've liked Dyne's previous records, but this one really steps to the next level – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Sdban (Belgium), 2018. New Copy
The jazz cats here are all pretty contemporary – younger musicians and combos on the current scene in Belgium – which turns out to have a fantastic array of really fresh sounds! Some groups play straight, some maybe use a bit more electronics – others are more acoustic than ... CD
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! The synth, bass and and percussion set the scene nicely throughout, but ... LP, Vinyl record album
Star Creature, 2018. New Copy
Sweet 80s grooves from Ourra – awash in all sorts of cool keyboards, from street electro-styled lines, to those with a darker European energy! The songs are all nice and tuneful, but also all instrumental – and are almost begging for vocals at times, because they're so darn catchy ... 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 ... LP, Vinyl record album

Blinding sounds from Kaidi Tatham – an artist who's really continued the best spirit of the 4Hero sound with records like this!

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
Still Music, 2005. New Copy 2LP
An excellent collection of soulful house from the current Detroit underground – one that's bubbling over with great work from lesser-known talents – all of whom come together to prove that these days, Detroit's one of the most happening music scenes on the planet!

LP, Vinyl record album
Gondwana (UK), 2018. New Copy 2LP
Spiritual space explorations by the Portico Quartet – a group who are really a duo instead of a four-piece – and who use a lot more electronics than some of their contemporaries on the Gondwana label! In a way, the music almost has the same post-jazz vibe as some of the work on the Tru ... LP, Vinyl record album
Les Sourdes Oreilles
My Bags (France), 2017. New Copy
This "ensemble" is really just one guy – Charif Megarbane, who recorded the whole album in Kenya – working together a fantastic array of sounds on drums, percussion, guitar, Fender Rhodes, Farfisa, flute, vibes, oud, and a number of other instruments too – all with a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Pool
Sonar Kollektiv (Germany), 2018. New Copy
It feels like quite some time since we've last heard from Jazzanova – a group who were continually exploding our musical horizons back at the end of the last century, and who really seem to have evolved their sound in more recent years! This double-length set has a tremendous sense of scope ... CD
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!

Mathematics, 2018. New Copy
Propellent club grooves on Mathematics by Giorgio Luceri! "I Am Love" features slowbuilding atmosphere and some echoey layers of soul vocals by Gregg Fore. "Giove A Favore" has a mix of beats and heavy atmosphere and "Can Move On Without U" continues that vibe nicely ... 12-inch, Vinyl record

Palmares Fantasy
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! 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
Modern Latin Jazz
Schema (Italy), 2017. New Copy 2CD

Yet while Ilhan's made some great contributions to the New York scene over the past few decades, this set has him returning to ... LP, Vinyl record album
Sahko (Finland), 1994. New Copy
Very early music from Jimi Tenor – music from a movie that he directed himself – before moving on to conquer the worlds of soul, funk, and spiritual jazz! This set is much like Tenor's earliest albums under his own name – highly electronic, yet already something apart from the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Retroflection
Reel People (UK), 2018. New Copy
A fantastic album from Reel People – and warmly collaborative, too – thanks to contributions from Mica Paris, Angie Stone, Navasha Daya, Omar, Tony Momrelle, and a host of others! Reel People have always given us fantastic grooves – classic club-styled cuts, but with a lean ... CD

First Word (UK), 2018. New Copy 2LP

Tru Thoughts (UK), 2018. New Copy
A group that's every bit as trippy as you might guess from their name, and the cover image on the set – working here in a post-jazz mode that's similar to other projects over the years from the Tru Thoughts label, especially the instrumental musings from the Nostalgia 77 side of the universe! ... 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

Soul Food Taqueria
Mo Wax/Be With (UK), 2002. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)
Laidback, messed-up funk from Tommy Guerrero – the kind of mostly-instrumental grooves that made him a revolutionary funky talent from the American underground!

BBE (UK), Late 90s/2000s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold

A limited promo single – with two tracks from a forthcoming album by Cotonete! "Layla" has this slow-building mix of spiritual horns and a fuzzy guitar solo – almost as if Robert Fripp found himself recording for the Gondwana label – before the tune takes off with more ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Heavenly Sweetness (Netherlands), 2017. New Copy
Maybe the best work so far from one of the hippest beatmaking collectives on the European scene – on a record that definitely has some of the righteous power you'd guess from the title! As before, the approach is rooted in hip hop, but also has a lot more going on too – lots of musical ... CD
Virtual Stars
Modern Sun (Netherlands), 2018. New Copy
Skymark is Marc Friedli – a European keyboardist with a real love of vintage instruments – Arp, Moog, Prophet, Roland, and more – all of which he brings to bear nicely in this very groovy set! As with his previous record, the vibe here is kind of late 70s/early 80s – some ... LP, Vinyl record album
Love – Part 1
Kindred Spirits (Netherlands), 2009. New Copy

Death Valley
Alpha Pup, 2018. New Copy

BBE (UK), 2018. New Copy

Alpha Pup, 2018. New Copy
Densely atmospheric and hypnotically beat-driven grooves from Mad Zach on Alpha Pup! There's a bit more of intense electronic vibe here than the some of the more abstract jazzy soul soundscapes of a lot what we've heard on the label to date, which is gratifying honestly – and is compelling as ... LP, Vinyl record album
