Sault

9
Forever Living Originals (UK), 2021. New Copy
Fantastic music from Sault – a record that explodes way past some of their previous releases, and really shows the group evolving in their sound – even if they are still keeping their cover art in the same very understated territory! There's a sense of urgency as the album begins ... CD

Hiatus Kaiyote

Mood Valiant
Brainfeeder, 2021. New Copy
Hiatus Kaiyote are one of those groups that just seem to grow and grow with each new about – a strongly soulful act at their start, but one who've found a way to carve out sounds and styles that are very much their own – maybe almost making themselves a genre in the process! Things ... CD
Innovative Leisure, 2021. New Copy 2LP
A really different sort of record from Badbadnotgood – and we mean that in the best way possible, as the group are really maturing and opening up their sound! The core blend of funk and jazz elements is still at play on the record – but there's also a more expansive vibe too, one that ... LP, Vinyl record album
BBE (UK), 2013. New Copy 2 CDs
CD...$9.99 14.99
A pair of sweet mix CDs from Joe Claussell and Black Coffee – each done in support of Djoon, the multi-cultural nightspot in Paris! Joe Claussell brings out all his best tones here – those cosmic elements mixed with earthier elements that have always kept his music grounded so firmly ... CD

Blundetto

Good Good Things
Heavenly Sweetness (France), 2020. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
The title might seem familiar – given that Blundetto's first album was called Bad Bad Things – but this record really shows a strong evolution of his sound over the ten years since that release – the shifting sense of sound between hip hop, global roots, and more dynamic elements ... LP, Vinyl record album
Stix (France), 2021. New Copy
A fantastic entry in this really great series – a set that's not really disco or reggae, but which reimagines classic soul and funk tracks with a blend of laidback rhythms and contemporary instrumentation! True, you might play this stuff at a club – but the overall vibe here is a lot ... LP, Vinyl record album

Linkwood & Other Lands

Mono
Athens Of The North (UK), 2021. New Copy
"Mono" might seem to be a strange word to use in relation to the music of Linkwood – as his sets always have a very spacious, stretched-out sort of sound – one that's hardly the stuff of a one-channel recording! Yet here, Linkwood strips things down in a nice way – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Dining Rooms

Tre
Schema (Italy), 2003. New Copy 2LP
The 3rd album by The Dining Rooms (in case you couldn't guess by the title!) – and the best so far! These guys have really matured from earlier outings – moving into a sophisticated realm of downtempo soundscapes crafted with a great deal of care, and which are put together with a lot ... LP, Vinyl record album
Forever Living Originals (UK), 2020. New Copy
A record with an unassuming cover, but with a deeply soulful sound that comes across right away – a spare blend of simple beats and well-crafted basslines, topped with vocals that almost seem like they're trying hard not to get in the way of the groove! The approach is great – gently ... CD
Forever Living Originals (UK), 2020. New Copy
Sault have always been fantastic, but it also seems that with each new release, they get even more powerful and progressive – opening up a more radical agenda that really comes through in their music! The group don't state their position with the title of the record – which is ... CD
Bureau B (Germany), 1990s. New Copy 2CD
Early work from Jimi Tenor – the Finnish artist you might know for his work in the fields of jazz, soul, and funk in our current century – but who was a very different musician in the years before! Jimi still has a soulful vibe on these early tracks, but the music is much more electric ... CD

Invisible Session

Echoes Of Africa
Space Echo (Italy), 2021. New Copy
There's plenty of Afro Funk influence in this album from Invisible Session – a long-running act who've given us a number of excellent records on the Schema label – but there's also plenty of the group's own spirit too, thanks in part to trombone and keyboards from the mighty Gianluca ... CD

Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble

Mutations EP
Denovali, 2009. New Copy
The second album from this unusual ensemble – a group who maybe take the "dark" in their name a bit more strongly than the "jazz" – and who work here without any real connection to the culture of Kilimanjaro at all! Yet despite that distinction, there's definitely ... CD

Kutiman

Wachaga
Siyal (Israel), 2020. New Copy
Much deeper work than we're used to hearing from Kutiman – and a set that's really widened the global scope of their sounds and influences! At the start, these guys were a funk group with a mix of psychedelic and 70s Afro-oriented influences – but they've really expanded here, and ... CD

2000 Black

Next Set A Rockers
2000 Black (UK), 2008. New Copy
It's been 10 years since 2000 Black first started catching our ears, and they've never sounded better! This album's way more than just a "next set" of grooves from the pair – as it really shows a growth over time, a unified musical vision that has them hitting some of the same ... CD
Mo Wax/Universal (UK), 2018. New Copy
A great collection of tracks from the documentary on the man behind Mo Wax Records – Unkle/James Lavelle – an artist in his own right, and a creative force who helped shape the sound of a generation! The package includes not only some key cuts from the Mo Wax catalog, but also tunes ... CD

Far Out Monster Disco Orchestra

Black Sun
Far Out (UK), 2018. New Copy
CD...$9.99 16.99
Fantastic sounds from the Far Out Monster Disco Orchestra – a group with family ties to Azymuth and Incognito, and who work here in the best blend of Brazilian and soulful elements that might imply! The ensemble is a crowning achievement for the Far Out label – a summation of all the ... CD

Blundetto

Good Good Things
Heavenly Sweetness (France), 2020. New Copy
The title might seem familiar – given that Blundetto's first album was called Bad Bad Things – but this record really shows a strong evolution of his sound over the ten years since that release – the shifting sense of sound between hip hop, global roots, and more dynamic elements ... CD

Jazz Liberatorz

Clin D'Oeil
Kif/P-Vine (Japan), 2007. New Copy
One of the hippest French albums we've heard in years – a laidback blend of hip hop and jazz that really lives up to the cover's homage to the legendary Black Jazz label! The Jazz Liberatorz have a great way with a groove – a style that's openly flowing and instrumentally jazzy – ... CD

Four Tet

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

Thundercat

It Is What It Is
Brainfeeder, 2020. New Copy
A tremendous album from Thundercat – an artist who just seems to get better and better with every new record, and who's maybe here defining a genre that's completely unto himself! The record is soulful, and has a lot of contemporary cosmic currents – but it's also more far-reaching and ... CD

Kid Loco

Italian Job
Temposphere (Italy), 2008. New Copy
The first set we've seen from Kid Loco in awhile – and a nice mix of new music and older sounds from Italian film scores! The album's very nicely placed on the Temposphere arm of Easy Tempo – as it features Loco remixes both of newer music from the former label, and some old ... CD

Sault

5
Forever Living Originals (UK), 2019. New Copy
A sweet little record from Sault – a group with a sound that's unlike anybody else we can think of, and which has a lot more warmth than you might guess from the spare look of the cover! There's almost a tribal quality to the rhythms at times – although they're also nicely understated ... CD

Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble

Mutations EP (180 gram green vinyl pressing)
Denovali, 2009. New Copy (reissue)
The second album from this unusual ensemble – a group who maybe take the "dark" in their name a bit more strongly than the "jazz" – and who work here without any real connection to the culture of Kilimanjaro at all! Yet despite that distinction, there's definitely ... LP, Vinyl record album
Worm Discs (UK), 2020. New Copy
A great little collection that seeks to put the Bristol scene on the map – and to show the kind of inventive jazz the city's been offering up in recent years! The compilers aim to demonstrate that Bristol has as many newly-creative acts as the sort that have been bubbling up in London on ... LP, Vinyl record album
Forever Living Originals (UK), 2020. New Copy
A record with an unassuming cover, but with a deeply soulful sound that comes across right away – a spare blend of simple beats and well-crafted basslines, topped with vocals that almost seem like they're trying hard not to get in the way of the groove! The approach is great – gently ... CD
Forever Living Originals (UK), 2020. New Copy
Sault have always been fantastic, but it also seems that with each new release, they get even more powerful and progressive – opening up a more radical agenda that really comes through in their music! The group don't state their position with the title of the record – which is ... CD

Mario Biondi

Dare
Sony (Italy), 2021. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
Mario Biondi looks a bit angelic on the cover, but his vocals are still nicely down to earth – that wonderfully raspy charm that made us love his music right from the start, and which makes Mario one of the key folks to carry forward the legacy of older jazz singers like Mark Murphy or Mose ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sault

7
Forever Living Originals (UK), 2019. New Copy
Just two matchsticks on the cover, but a sound that's wonderfully rich and deep – a special blend of righteous message and understated grooves – all served up at a level that really sets Sault apart from the rest! Production is by Inflo, who keeps things spare and crisp – but ... LP, Vinyl record album

Nicola Conte & Gianluca Petrella

People Need People
Schema (Italy), 2021. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
A more spiritual soul-based setting than usual for the talents of Nicola Conte – a long-awaited full length set, served up after a host of 12" single collaborations with Gianluca Petrella! Petrella's presence is felt in the way the tunes unfold – often with strong contributions ... LP, Vinyl record album
Parlophone, 2020. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
A 20th anniversary celebration of the groundbreaking album Tourist from St Germain – that creative combination of jazz and dancefloor rhythms that made for one of the biggest hits on Blue Note at the start of the century! This set's not an expanded version of that set, though – as the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Bureau B (Germany), 1990s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
Early work from Jimi Tenor – the Finnish artist you might know for his work in the fields of jazz, soul, and funk in our current century – but who was a very different musician in the years before! Jimi still has a soulful vibe on these early tracks, but the music is much more electric ... LP, Vinyl record album
Kryptox (Germany), 2021. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
A second great overview of the contemporary German underground – a fertile world of music that shows that plenty has happened over there since the glory days of the Compost and Sonar Kollektiv scenes! The music here is only partly jazz – maybe jazz-inspired, but served up in a variety ... LP, Vinyl record album

Afro Soul Prophecy

Heat In The City
Schema (Italy), 2021. New Copy
A bright new groove on the Schema Records label – but one that features work from some of the company's real heavyweights in recent years – as the album was conceived and produced by Lucio Cantone (aka Invisible Session), and features tunes written by the funky Alex Puddu – all in ... LP, Vinyl record album

Invisible Session

Echoes Of Africa
Space Echo (Italy), 2021. New Copy
There's plenty of Afro Funk influence in this album from Invisible Session – a long-running act who've given us a number of excellent records on the Schema label – but there's also plenty of the group's own spirit too, thanks in part to trombone and keyboards from the mighty Gianluca ... LP, Vinyl record album

Gerardo Frisina

Moving Ahead
Schema (Italy), 2020. New Copy 2LP
The cover image is a bit different than the modernist images usually used for records by Italian maestro Gerardo Frisina, and the sound is a bit different too – maybe less Latin or Brazilian than some of his previous records, but still filled with lots of percussion at the core! There's ... LP, Vinyl record album
At Home Sound (Japan), 2021. New Copy
A fantastic collection of grooves from contemporary Japan, but one that's heavy on all the best 70s elements that have always influenced the scene – served up here in a mix of jazz, soul, funk, and Brazilian elements by the mighty Ryuhei The Man! Ryuhei has turned us on to plenty of great ... CD

S Tone Inc

Body & Soul
Schema (Italy), 2020. New Copy
The funkiest album so far from Stefano Tirone – aka S Tone – a set that's got a much clubbier vibe than some of his other records, and a very strong influence both from vintage boogie and funky jazz! Tirone plays plenty of Wurlitzer and other keyboards on the set – and most tunes ... LP, Vinyl record album

Mario Biondi

Dare
Sony (Italy), 2021. New Copy
Mario Biondi looks a bit angelic on the cover, but his vocals are still nicely down to earth – that wonderfully raspy charm that made us love his music right from the start, and which makes Mario one of the key folks to carry forward the legacy of older jazz singers like Mark Murphy or Mose ... CD

Flying Lotus

Flamagra
Warp, 2019. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
Fantastic sounds from Flying Lotus – an artist who just keeps on pushing past any conventional expectations, to a point where his music is almost a genre unto itself! The record's got this very tripped-out sort of vibe – very much in keeping with the image on the cover – and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Calibro 35

Post-Momentum EP
Record Kicks (Italy), 2021. New Copy
A short step forward for Calibro 35 – but a damn funky one too! The set's a follow-up to the previous Momentum album, and it shows some strong new territory after the dark days of 2020 – with a leadoff track that adds in rhymes from Ensi E Ghemon to the core cinematic funk of "Stan ... LP, Vinyl record album
ESL/Wonderwheel, 2006. New Copy
The groove here is a compelling blend of Puerto Rican, African, and New York styles – bits of salsa, funk, hip hop, and more – all percolating together in the hands of Nickodemus and coming out in a whole new way! The sound is a lot less cliched than you might expect – and ... LP, Vinyl record album
Warp, 2014. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
Flying Lotus is not only very much alive on You're Dead! – he's as lively as ever – delivering his best, most diverse record to date! The Flying Lotus sound is in peak form here – glitchy beats and spacey keyboards, deftly layered samples, and carrying boundless influences from ... LP, Vinyl record album
2000 Black (UK), 2021. New Copy
The mighty Dego is one of the few talents who can keep coming up with unusual rhythms year after year – the kind of mindblowing music that first made us love him so many years back, touched with an even more sophisticated understanding of the jazzy currents that he works with! Dego's the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Gerardo Frisina

Rhythmic Conversations
Schema (Italy), 2018. New Copy
Some of the rootsiest work we've heard in years from the mighty Gerardo Frisina – a set that still has his rhythm programs in the mix, but combined with loads of acoustic drums, percussion, piano and vibes – all given some sweet touches by occasional Fender Rhodes solos as well! The ... LP, Vinyl record album

Str4ta (Jean-Paul Bluey Maunick)

Aspects
Brownswood (UK), 2021. New Copy
A contemporary set, but one with a vibe that stretches back to the glory days of early 80s funk in England – served up by Jean-Paul "Bluey" Maunick, of Incognito fame – a talent whose contributions were key to the scene back in the day! If you know Bluey, you'll know his ... LP, Vinyl record album

Kaidi Tatham

Kaidi's 5ive
Jazz Refreshed (UK), 2011. New Copy
Wicked work from Kaidi Tatham – some of the best we've heard in years, and filled with all the righteous energy we've always loved in his music! The setting is a bit more electric than some of his jazz-based sets – and there's a deep deep London vibe that runs throughout the set – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Brainfeeder, 2011. New Copy
One of the great modern genre-busting debuts we've had the pleasure of being so stunned by in quite a while! Thundercat's Golden Age is dizzyingly brilliant mix of 80s clubby synths and keys, future soul & funky soundscapes, 70s soul jazzy atmospherics and more – but it's hardly a mere ... LP, Vinyl record album
