Mental Groove/Ropeadope, 2017. New Copy
CD...$8.99 13.99
Spare drums, percussion, and lots of electronics from Tommaso Cappellato – a musician who works here with only a bit of guest vocals from time to time, but never makes us feel like we're missing the presence of a larger group at all! Cappellato's somewhere in a space near cosmic jazz, but is ... CD
Raw Tapes (UK), 2017. New Copy
A sweetly soaring trumpeter, with a mighty nice groove – one that seems to make equal use of flowing lines on keyboards as well as it does his own lead sound – served up here in a mode that uses electric elements to make Sefi Zisling's acoustic trumpet really shine! The rhythms are ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sudden Hunger (UK), 2017. New Copy
Fantastic material from a group we haven't heard from in years! You might know Les Hommes best from their early work on Schema Records – some killer albums from the start of this century, which firmly established these guys as one of the grooviest groups around! And while it's been years ... LP, Vinyl record album
Espacio Especial
Astrolage (Japan), 2017. New Copy
Definitely a special space from Carlos Nino – a record that seems to even deepen the sound of some of his recent cosmic explorations – to take Nino into territory that's far beyond jazz or much of his other modes too! The set features a bit of guest work from Iasos – an artist ... CD
Inner Muse, 2002. New Copy (reissue)
Modern classic Detroit dancefloor grooves from Alton Miller! Sounds as fresh today as it did in the early 00s, with the beats and swirling keys flavored "Movements", the solid and soulful "Chasing Dreams" and the the spacey, appropriately titled funky fusion-inspired "Fusion ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Atemporal Space Tests
Schema (Italy), 2017. New Copy Gatefold
The title of the record may sound a bit scientific, but the music within has a very human appeal – sweet funky rhythms forged by the team of DJ Rocca and Stefano Ghittoni – the latter of whom you might know from previous productions with The Dining Rooms! The sound here is maybe an ... CD
Atemporal Space Tests (with bonus CD)

The sound here is maybe an ... LP, Vinyl record album
III
Innovative Leisure, 2014. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
The best work so far from this ultra-hip trio – an amazing combination of keyboards, bass, and drums – served up in styles that are rooted in funk and jazz, but go to so many other places as well! The drums crackle with a quality schooled in 70s breaks and beats, stripped down to their ... LP, Vinyl record album
Live At The Blue Whale
Mashibeats/Ropeadope, 2017. New Copy
A jaw-dropper of a record from Mark De Clive-Lowe – much more of a jazz album than anything he's ever done before – and a set that's recorded live, too – which is also more of a change! The style here is wonderful – with Mark handling piano, keyboards, and some live effects ... LP, Vinyl record album
Mark De Clive-Lowe Presents Church (with download)
Mashibeats/Ropeadope, 2014. New Copy 2LP
Mark De Clive-Lowe takes us to church – with a set that's easily his most soulful, spiritual record ever! The album's got a lot more acoustic elements than usual – plenty of jazz elements on tenor, flute, trumpet, and percussion – mixed with Mark's own great Fender Rhodes and ... LP, Vinyl record album
Record Kicks (Italy), 2016. New Copy
Calibro 35 have always had a soundtrack style to their music – but here, they seem to hit an even trippier, spacier version of the mode – playing an all-live, all-instrumental set that's bubbling over with loads of wonderful elements! Some tracks are still as funky as before, but ... LP, Vinyl record album
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
Columbia, 2013. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
Daft Punk have always worn their love of pop, disco, electro, soul and fusion pretty proudly on their robot sleeves – and bless 'em, they're paying more earnest tribute than ever before on Random Access Memories – featuring homages to and collaborations with Chic guitarist/pop soul ... LP, Vinyl record album
Tawk Tomahawk
Flying Buddha, 2013. New Copy
A pretty remarkable set of spacey soul songcraft from Hiatus Kaiyote – a Melbourne group that blends moody, laidback live soul instrumentation with bubbling futuristic elements in a surprisingly seamless way – elevated even higher by strong songwriting and the soulful vocals of Nai Palm! ... CD
Schema (Italy), 2017. New Copy (pic cover)
A beautiful groove from Mario Biondi – made even better here by a sweet clubby remix from LTJ Xperience! The core cut has a warmly jazzy vibe, and begins with a trumpet solo from Fabrizio Bosso that's stretched out over a disco groove – almost with a vibe that's like some of the club ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
New Conception Of Jazz
Jazzland (Germany), 1997. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
Early work by one of the most groundbreaking artists of the jazz-influenced production generation! Lots of folks talk about how much jazz there is in their work, but when you hear their drum n bass singles, you're kind of hard pressed to figure out what they mean. Not Bugge, though –as his ... LP, Vinyl record album
Des Promesses
Favorite (France), 2017. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
Fantastic sounds from Bruno "Patchworks" Hovart – served up here in his Voilaaa project, which might well be our favorite of all his many musical enterprises! The groove brings together funky club with some slight touches of 70s Afro Funk – maybe not as much as you'd guess ... LP, Vinyl record album
Mandela Effect
Warp, 2017. New Copy
An album that's kind of a cross-section of the Gonjasufi sound of late – given that it features some remixes and rework tracks – but a record that's still very much an important addition to his ever-growing catalog! The sound is spacey and laidback, but also has lots of dark currents ... CD
BBE (UK), 2017. New Copy 2LP
Osunlade's always had a sound that's deep, but this time around his entire approach seems even deeper than ever – maybe because this lavish package is as much a visual treat as it is an audio one! The set's as much of a book as it is a record – a heavy, hardcover package that has ... LP, Vinyl record album
