Sonar Kollektiv (Germany), 2018. New Copy 2LP Gatefold

Only Old
Far Out (UK), 2018. New Copy
The cover image is a cutup of global scenes and cities – and that's a great way to represent the music of Ben Hauke – as the London producer works very much in the best cultural criss-crossing mode that we've come to love from the Far Out label! The style here is more in the mode of ... LP, Vinyl record album
First Word (UK), 2018. New Copy
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 ... CD

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
Afro Gente/Fuego De Sangre
Strictly Jaz Unit, 2017. New Copy
Afro-Latin jazz and funk steeped groovers from Glenn Undergound's Gu Jazz Collective!

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!

The album's dedicated to a range of influences that include Herbie Hancock, Sun Ra, ... LP, Vinyl record album
Cinevox (Italy), 2018. New Copy

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

Lovesick 1987 to 2017
Acid Jazz (UK), Late 80s/1990s/2000s/2010s. New Copy

Bad Bad Things
Heavenly Sweetness (France), 2010. New Copy 2LP

Onda
Schema (Italy), 2017. New Copy
