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
Changing Times EP
First Word (UK), 2017. New Copy (pic cover)
Pure genius from Kaidi Thatham – an artist who continues to grow wonderfully as the years go on – to a point where we no longer know if we should call him a club producer or a jazz musician! This album's a demonstration of equal parts of that genius – almost as if Ramsey Lewis ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
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
Night Visions
Bastard Jazz (UK), 2017. New Copy 2LP
One of the most tuneful albums we've ever heard from Chico Mann – and a set that moves into much more song-based territory than some of his earlier work! The style here is a unique hybrid of beats, breaks, and Latin – almost in a mode that could crack a larger global market, if the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Gravity
Deep Art Sounds, 2017. New Copy 2LP
A great full length set from Anthony Nicholson – an artist who's done so many great singles and mixes over the years, but never gives us as many albums as we'd want! The album's steeped in the soulful currents and righteous modes that Nicholson's always had in his music – the kind of ... LP, Vinyl record album
Favorite (France), 2017. New Copy
Three great tracks from one of our favorite Patchworks projects! "African Music" has a song that lives up to its title, but also has the warmly clubby vibe that we love from Voilaaa – which almost makes the whole thing feel like a late 70s post-colonial track recorded in Paris ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Natural (180 gram vinyl)
Far Out (UK), 2016. New Copy
Nicola Conte's working here with a great new singer – the lovely Stefania Dipierro, who brings in just the right sort of Brazilian vibe to fit the record's placement on the Far Out label! The style here is maybe a bit more Brazilian than some of Nicola's music on the Schema imprint – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Heavenly Sweetness (France), 2017. New Copy
A jazzy instrumental with a very classic vibe – served up with some especially nice keyboard work from Florian Pellissier – who you might know from records issued under his own name! "Inside Outside" owes a fair bit to 70s funky jazz for inspiration – but it's also got ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Gravity
Deep Art Sounds, 2017. New Copy
A great full length set from Anthony Nicholson – an artist who's done so many great singles and mixes over the years, but never gives us as many albums as we'd want! The album's steeped in the soulful currents and righteous modes that Nicholson's always had in his music – the kind of ... CD
Sphere
Epistroph (Japan), 2017. New Copy
That's Thelonious Monk on the cover, getting an egg yolk removed from his head – and while that image may seem a bit sacrilegious, it's also a great way to portray the sound of this unusual Japanese group! Wonk have a sound that's begun in jazz, but quickly taken to much farther-out ... CD

Maad, 1995. New Copy 2LP (reissue)
Chicago house legends go head-to-head on the timeless set of mid 90s grooves! 8 great cuts on 4 sides – including "Motion Sickness", "Mayday Funk", "Cronic Groove", "Michael Myers", "Po-Ta Grized", "Bee W Bee", "Stopen ... LP, Vinyl record album
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! ... LP, Vinyl record album
Inflamable (France), Late 90s/2000s. New Copy
We love the music of DJ Cam – as he's one of the few French talents from the 90s who didn't try to just copy the modes of American hip hop – and instead, took it into a fresh funk field of his own! As you'll hear on these tracks, Cam is definitely inspired by hip hop – but over ... LP, Vinyl record album
Future Vision/Music & Power, 2016. New Copy
Stellar, globe-spanning style from Ron Trent's Spaces & Places series – bringing regional flavor into his timeless house grooves! "Berlin Nights" blends tight beats and bass, and lean, atmospheric layers of synthy atmosphere. "Mississippi Mud" is a great cut that takes ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Night Visions
Bastard Jazz (UK), 2017. New Copy
One of the most tuneful albums we've ever heard from Chico Mann – and a set that moves into much more song-based territory than some of his earlier work! The style here is a unique hybrid of beats, breaks, and Latin – almost in a mode that could crack a larger global market, if the ... CD

Tropical Diaspora (Germany), 2016. New Copy
A strong album from Yaite Ramos Rodriguez, aka La Dame Blanche – a Cuban-born, Paris-based singer, MC, flautist and percussionist – in set that mixes modern hip hop, cumbia, and dancehall-inspired urban production! The modern sound is pretty great, and her voice is really wonderful ... LP, Vinyl record album
Ninja Tune, 2017. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
Dreamy, inventive work from Bonobo – and another creative high point for one of the most consistent figures in the Ninja Tune universe from the turn of the millennium onward! In our minds, Bonobo has always been one of the better full album listen experience crafters on Ninja Tune – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Tru Thoughts (UK), 2016. New Copy
One of the most soulful acts in years from the Tru Thoughts label – and that's saying a lot, given that most of their records are pretty darn soulful! Seshun have kind of a crispy, contemporary vibe – tunes that aren't afraid to hang onto a hook, but which also have all the forward-think ... LP, Vinyl record album
Migration
Ninja Tune, 2017. New Copy
Dreamy, inventive work from Bonobo – and another creative high point for one of the most consistent figures in the Ninja Tune universe from the turn of the millennium onward! In our minds, Bonobo has always been one of the better full album listen experience crafters on Ninja Tune – ... CD
Euphoria EP
Strictly Jaz Unit, 2016. New Copy
Nice, hypnotic blend of spacey instrumentation and acoustic elements from Euphorian Orchestra on Glenn Underground Strictly Jaz Unit label – for a unique take on soulful house! Compelling beats roll under a nice mix of cosmic keyboard grooves, synth, little bits of flute and other airer ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
