Lageos
Ninja Tune, 2018. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
A pretty moody little collaboration between electronic wizard Actress (Darren Cunningham), and the London Contemporary Orchestra – both working here in a way that's quite unlike other records of this nature we've heard in the past! At first, we were maybe guessing that the set would have a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Virtual Stars
Modern Sun (Netherlands), 2018. New Copy
Skymark is Marc Friedli – a European keyboardist with a real love of vintage instruments – Arp, Moog, Prophet, Roland, and more – all of which he brings to bear nicely in this very groovy set! As with his previous record, the vibe here is kind of late 70s/early 80s – some ... LP, Vinyl record album
Which Way Is Home EP
FPE, 2018. New Copy
Turning Jewels Into Water describe their music as "half organic, half machine" – which is a pretty good description of the layered sounds going on here – which come from electronic drums, turntables, live loops, and other programs! Yet despite the presence of so many electric ... LP, Vinyl record album
Untitled (AITAOA #2)
Gondwana (UK), 2018. New Copy
A record of mysterious sources and sounds from this ultra-cool London group – a combo who maybe started out somewhere in the territory of jazz, but have moved out into more spacious areas over the years! There's a majestic sense of scope here that almost takes us back to the early work of ... LP, Vinyl record album
Acid Jazz/BGP (UK), 1994. New Copy 2CD
A hugely expanded version of this stone London classic from Mother Earth – presented as a 2CD set with a huge amount of extra material! The core album is the kind of record that should have crossed over big at a global level, had more folks been paying attention to the Brit funk scene at the ... CD

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!

Funk Forever EP
Bastard Jazz, 2018. New Copy
The Pendletons really love the sound of 80s funk – and they do a mighty great job of recreating its charm here – thanks to some well-crafted basslines and lots of sweet keyboards! The vocals are great, too – often paired up, in that 80s way of having the voices come from a ... LP, Vinyl record album
Star Creature, 2018. New Copy
Timeless club grooves from Jehan on Chicago's young, and to date perfectly reliable Star Creature label! "Change The Way" kicks of the EP with lightly thumping, though compelling beats, spacey soul keys, chimes and guitar, and nice use of vocal samples. "Minute Papillon" is a ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Mathematics, 2018. New Copy

Magical Properties, 2004. New Copy 2LP
A beautiful blend of beats, electronics, and well-chosen acoustic sources – including a bit of bassoon, and some acoustic guitar in unexpected places! These sorts of mixes are maybe a bit more familiar now – but back at the start, this album was a bit of a groundbreaker – maybe a ... LP, Vinyl record album
Brownswood (UK), 2017. New Copy 2CD
A dozen volumes in – and this wonderful series is still going strong – an incredibly solid, incredibly trustworthy collection of all that's great in the global underground! Gilles Peterson has been opening up our ears for decades, and he's never let us down – and, as before, ... CD
Palmares Fantasy (180 gram vinyl)
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 ... LP, Vinyl record album
Black Sun
Far Out (UK), 2018. New Copy 2LP
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 ... LP, Vinyl record album
Colourful World (Netherlands), 2018. New Copy Gatefold
Arp Frique certainly does live in a colorful world – not just in the image on the cover, but in the grooves of the record as well – which bring together lots of funky 80s keyboards with a wider global sense of groove! There's often some acoustic percussion alongside the electric keys ... LP, Vinyl record album

Papa (UK), 2018. New Copy (pic cover)

Far Out (UK), 2018. New Copy
The legendary Arthur Verocai joins the Far Out Monster Disco Orchestra for this mighty groove – a cut that's less like his earlier work from Brazil, and much more in the soaring Salsoul spirit we've come to expect from the collective! John Morales provides a mighty mix of "Step Into My ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Dapper
Victor (Japan), 2018. New Copy
This great Japanese combo are maybe even more dapper than usual here – still strongly tied up in their tradition of hard-hitting jazz, but also opening the door for work from some guest soul singers and MCs! Leader Shacho is usually the "agitator" in the group – calling out ... CD
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! Glenn's work is never lacking for genuine jazzy soul spirit, even his most stripped down and straight forward club grooves, so you'd have to think he's going a bit deeper, given the collective billing, and you'd ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Brainfeeder, 2017. New Copy 4 x 10 inch LP
Fantastic work from one of the most compelling mainstream talents in recent years – an artist who can get wide fame and acclaim, yet keep on pushing the boundaries into fresh new cosmic territory!

IV (with download)
Innovative Leisure, 2016. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
Badbadnotgood have always been pretty damn great, actually – and never better than on album IV – a remarkable step forward for the group! As ever, they take inspiration from some of the best prog, jazz, funk (and proggy jazz funk...they blend) of the 70s and beyond, but weave it into ... LP, Vinyl record album
Ubiquity, 2018. New Copy
Maybe the strongest album so far from Bosq – and certainly one of the most wide-ranging too – given that the group have a strong global bent to their groove, and they've also made space for a host of guest stars who include Nicole Willis, Bruno Morais, Monolog, and Kaleta! The music is ... CD
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
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
Strictly Jaz Unit, 2018. New Copy
GU in a neo classic, minimalist mode on"Spank N Gallop – but with a heavy, bubbling bass groove a simple, propellent beat! "Peaceful Rage" has a busier sound, but mellower in a way, too, with some spacier electronics in the mix. 12-inch, Vinyl record
Strictly Jaz Unit, 2017. New Copy
Chicago heavies Glenn Underground & Boo Williams – together as GUBoo! "Make Me Dance" is a stormer, propelled by an unstoppable beat, spacey, swirling synth and a sultry bit of spoken vocals and other subtle touches that recall classic disco really nicely. A nice mix of timeless ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Awakening
BBE (UK), 2018. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
Clubby grooves and rootsy percussion – served up here by Gabriele Poso in a really wonderful combination!

LP, Vinyl record album
Red Notes
Soul Jazz (UK), 2018. New Copy
A really jagged little record from Hieroglyphic Being – a set that feels even more stripped-down than his previous album, to a point where we can really focus on his inventive beats and cosmic keyboards! The album's dedicated to a range of influences that include Herbie Hancock, Sun Ra, ... CD

Heavenly Sweetness (France), 2018. New Copy 2LP
A beautiful celebration of the first ten years of Heavenly Sweetness – a fantastic French record label that's not only given us spiritual jazz from giants of the 70s, but also opened our ears to both new sounds from contemporary artists, and a wide array of rhythms from around the globe! All ... LP, Vinyl record album
BBE (UK), 2018. New Copy

2000 Black (UK), 2017. New Copy
A beautiful little EP – and like so many of the recent releases on 2000 Black, a record that's much shorter than an album, but seems to deliver the same sort of satisfaction! Lordamercy helps give Dego a vibe that's a bit different than usual – as "Green Woods" has these ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Decade
Record Kicks (Italy), 2018. New Copy Gatefold
Calibro 35 have grown a heck of a lot in the last ten years – from a group who already had a strong ear for vintage soundtrack and sound library funk – to one who've definitely brought a lot of their own ideas to the music too! The sound here is razor sharp and right on the money ... LP, Vinyl record album
Fifteen
Tru Thoughts (UK), 2018. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
It's hard to believe it's been fifteen years since Benedic Lamdin has been giving us music via Nostalgia 77 – partly because he's given us so much, and matured so strongly, it almost feels as if more time has passed! If you're not yet hip to the Nostalgia 77 sound, this album's definitely ... LP, Vinyl record album
Treasures From The Temple
Eighteenth Street Lounge, 2018. New Copy
Thievery Corporation go back to the vaults – and come up with a host of unusual material from the Temple Of I & I sessions! The music here is a great extension of the sound of that record – and includes unused tracks, remixes, and dubplates – all with the same collaborative ... CD
Bring Out The Sound
BBE (UK), 2018. New Copy 2LP
It'd been a few years since we heard the head nodding hip hop funk sound of The Herbaliser, but their back in full force! The cover a lot of stylistic terrain here, from the neo-classic boombap with scratches and cinematic samples of the opener, to the noirish hip hop soul of the standout "Seiz ... LP, Vinyl record album
Sonar Kollektiv (Germany), 2017. New Copy 2LP
Jazzanova are maybe best remembered for their early Compost Records releases from the German scene – tracks that really helped reintroduce jazz and Brazilian modes to the contemporary dancefloors back in the 90s!

Brainfeeder, 2017. New Copy

Tru Thoughts (UK), 2017. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
A record with a sound to match its evocative title – maybe the most heady work to date from Hidden Orchestra – and that's saying a lot, given the depth of their other releases! These guys definitely take the "orchestra" in their name seriously – and while the lineup is ... LP, Vinyl record album
Drank (colored vinyl pressing)
Brainfeeder, 2018. New Copy 2LP
A chopped-up take on Thundercat's album Drunk – handled here by OG Ron & The Chopstars – who provide a surprisingly sensitive take on the music! The album's billed as "chopped not slopped" – and that claim definitely seems right – as the music here is mostly ... LP, Vinyl record album
Black Track
Red River, 2016. New Copy
Soil & Pimp Sessions have been making music far longer than anyone else might do with such a clunky name – and over the years, they've just gotten better and better, and found rich new ways to express themselves! This album may well be the group's best so far – and represents a ... CD
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
Going Home (180 gram pressing)
Leaving, 2018. New Copy
Carlos Nino is definitely going home here – hitting some of the most righteous modes we've heard in years – and also returning to his roots in spiritual jazz! The album's still got some of the meditative qualities of some of Nino's other music, but it's also got more bite too – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Closer/Groovin' You
BBE (UK), 2017. New Copy (pic cover)
"Closer" is a fantastic groove – wickedly jazzy, and filled with lots of Fender Rhodes and strings – soaring to the skies on a slightly broken rhythm that almost recalls the best London work of a decade before! Yet there's also a stronger soul vibe here too – thanks to ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Drank
Brainfeeder, 2018. New Copy
A chopped-up take on Thundercat's album Drunk – handled here by OG Ron & The Chopstars – who provide a surprisingly sensitive take on the music! The album's billed as "chopped not slopped" – and that claim definitely seems right – as the music here is mostly ... CD
RAW (Ron Trent remix, orig)
Far Out (UK), 2018. New Copy
A sweet groove that swirls together keyboards, bass, and some quick-stepping beats – all in a way that almost feels like a 21st Century take on the territory explored by Johnny Hammond on his classic Gears album in the 70s! The original take is already mighty nice – and on the Ron ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Plug Research, 2002. New Copy 2LP (reissue)
... LP, Vinyl record album
Avex (Japan), 2018. New Copy CD & Blu-ray
It's been quite a while since we've heard from Shinichi Osawa as Mondo Grosso, but the project is still very much in fine formation – providing us with that mix of clubby grooves and mellower moments that made the early Japanese albums so compelling! As before, there's a few different ... CD
