Forever Living Originals (UK), 2020. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
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 ... 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 ... CD

Floating Points, Pharoah Sanders, & The London Symphony Orchestra

Promises
Luaka Bop, 2021. New Copy
A fantastic record, and one of those cases where the presence of the mighty Pharoah Sanders can really transform the sound of a session! We'll admit that we weren't sure what to expect – but at the core, the record is really a set of duets between Pharoah on tenor and Sam Shepherd on ... CD
Stubs (UK), 2005. New Copy
A much-needed full length set from RSL – a trio who've grabbed plenty of attention with their initial singles, but who sound even better on an extended session! The group's got some instrumentation that's very much after our hearts – Fender Rhodes, organ, and theremin – all used ... CD

Alton Miller

Souls Like Mine
R2/Music Institute Detroit, 2007. New Copy 2LP (reissue)
Maybe the greatest moment ever from Detroit underground figure Alton Miller – one of those records from the early part of this century that really marked a moment of new sounds and styles in soul music! The album's way more than just the sort of house that Miller was first known for – ... LP, Vinyl record album
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
Tannen/Record Kicks (Italy), 2012. New Copy
An obscure set of unreleased work from this very cool group – material recorded in New York around the same time as their third album – and issued here as maybe a slight appendix to that classic set! The group's always had a classic cinematic approach to funk – heavy on 70s ... LP, Vinyl record album

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

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

Nicola Conte

Jet Sounds (full LP)
Schema/Fez (Italy), 2000. New Copy 2LP
Wonderful wonderful wonderful – and one of the best albums we've ever heard of modern bossa and soundtrack grooves!

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

Nicola Conte & Gianluca Petrella

People Need People
Schema (Italy), 2021. New Copy
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 ... CD

Rongetz Foundation

Velvet Bullet
Brooklyn Butterfly (France), 2021. New Copy
Damn great work from Rongetz Foundation – a group who just seem to get better and better with each new record – really taking on a strong role as a jazz group, but one who's also open to some of the newer ideas of the global scene! By that, we mean that the group's style is maybe a bit ... 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
Brownswood (UK), 2020. New Copy
Gilles Peterson presents the future of music from his very well-regarded perspective – served up here on eight tracks from some real up-and-coming talents on the London underground – working in a blend of modes that's very much in the best Brownswood Records spirit! The tracks move ... LP, Vinyl record album
Sony (Italy), 2020. New Copy
A great little package that expands on the tune "Paradise" – one of the catchiest numbers in years from the raspy-voiced genius of Mario Biondi – a contemporary singer, but one who's perfect for turning out soulful tracks that really hearken back to the bast! Here, Biondi ... LP, Vinyl record album

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

Oscar Jerome

Breathe Deep
Caroline, 2020. New Copy
The striking debut of Oscar Jerome – a UK singer/songwriter who works with a fair bit of jazzy elements here – thanks in part to some Rhodes and keyboards from Joe-Armon Jones! The set's the kind of genre-stepping record that we'd expect from some of Jones' London contemporaries – ... 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

Calibro 35

Momentum
Record Kicks (Italy), 2020. New Copy
CD...$7.99 15.98
Calibro 35 have certainly gained momentum in our book – as the group's given us more than a few albums over the years, and just keep sounding better and better with each new one! This set has the group still strongly in their core territory of Italian soundtrack and sound library funk – ... CD

Kon

On My Way
BBE (UK), 2013. New Copy
CD...$3.99 14.99
The first full album we've ever heard from Kon – and a really soulful set that follows strongly off his famous mixtapes and compilations with Amir! As on those gems, there's a very classic sound going on here – a strong love of the best moments of 70s soul, funk, and club – ... 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

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

Gianni Brezzo

Awakening
Jakarta (Germany), 2021. New Copy
Gianni Brezzo's a nom-du-date for Marvin Horsch – a German producer who handles a nice array of keyboards, guitar, bass, and percussion here – all in a swirling mode that starts somewhere in 70s electric jazz, but which comes off with a very contemporary vibe overall! Horsch has been ... 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!

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
Flying Buddha, 2015. New Copy 2LP (reissue)
A stunning second set from Hiatus Kaiyote – a group we already loved the first time around, but who really blow us away with this amazing little record! The style is this incredible mix of cosmic keyboards and soulful vocals – but not in a way that's like any of the other oft-tread ... 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
Irma (Italy), 2020. New Copy 2CDs
It's been a long time since we last heard from Italian keyboardist Francesco Gazzara – but it's definitely worth the wait, as this 2CD set pulls together some great bossa-styled recordings of the past two decades – with one disc of live material recorded around the world, the other ... CD

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

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

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
Record Kicks (Italy), 2010. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
Classic-styled soundtrack funk from Calibro 35 – a contemporary group, but one who works in the best styles of the Italian scene of the 70s!

Brooklyn Butterfly, 2021. New Copy

Thievery Corporation

Symphonik
Eighteenth Street Lounge, 2020. New Copy
The title here certainly gets it right – as the album marks a huge new step for Thievery Corporation – the first full record in which the group works with orchestral accompaniment – a move that's maybe long overdue, given how much these guys were initially influenced by older ... LP, Vinyl record album
Forever Living Originals (UK), 2020. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
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 ... LP, Vinyl record album

Andy Ash

Not At Home
Still Music, 2021. New Copy 2LP
The full length debut of Andy Ash – a younger UK artist who's been making a nice splash with tracks in recent years, and who emerges here fully formed, with more than enough talent to fill up the double length set!

Don Glori

Dawn Calling
Nothin Personal (UK), 2021. New Copy
A really great record from the Melbourne scene – a record that's got kind of a "jazz plus" vibe – in that it mixes live jazz instrumentation with some work on edits and a few electric touches – all in a style that's very much like some of our favorite London work in ... LP, Vinyl record album
Parlophone, 2020. New Copy
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 ... CD

Linkwood & Other Lands

Face The Facts
Athens Of The North (UK), 2020. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
Sweet grooves from Linkwood – served up in the kind of keyboard-heavy style of his collaboration with Greg Foat, but even more upbeat and 80s-styled overall! The tunes here really recall the best sound of 80s electro soul – all instrumental, with a really classic vibe to the keyboard ... LP, Vinyl record album

Dining Rooms

Art Is A Cat
Schema (Italy), 2020. New Copy 2LP
Maybe the best album we've ever heard from Dining Rooms – a set that has the group moving way past just makers of seductive grooves, into wider, fuller territory that definitely puts them at the top shelf level we love from the best at Schema Records! The album balances some of their earlier ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jameszoo & Metropole Orkest

Melkweg
Brainfeeder, 2020. New Copy 2LP
A really beautiful collaboration between Jameszoo and the Metropole Orkest – that large Dutch ensemble who seem always able to shift into the right sort of mode with their key collaborators! That's definitely the case here, as Jules Buckley masterfully leads the group – so that they ... LP, Vinyl record album
Staubgold (Germany), 2020. New Copy 2LP
A great assortment of funky jazzy cuts from recent years – a stunning package that shows just how much the love of jazz on the dancefloor has exploded in the contemporary underground – in ways that are so different than the modes of decades back! Yes, there was a time when "jazz&qu ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jneiro Jarel

After A Thousand Years
Far Out (UK), 2020. New Copy
Jneiro Jarel has always been way more than just a hip hop producer – even his earliest records were a bit hard to peg, and this excellent set not only pushes that bar forward a heck of a lot, but it also firmly suits the album's placement on the Far Out label! Far Out's best known for its ... CD

Voilaaa (Patchworks)

Voicii
Favorite (France), 2021. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
We've loved the music of Bruno "Patchworks" Hovart in all its many forms for years – but over time, this Voilaaa project might well be our favorite – as it really gives Patchworks a way to blend past and present, while also reaching out over the space of the globe! As before, ... 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 ... CD
