BBE (UK), 2016. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
A heady set of grooves from Kon – part of the Kon & Amir team you'll know from the famous series of compilations and mix tapes (both On and Off Track!) – stepping out here as a fantastically strong lead artist of his own, with help from a few key guests as well! The set's both a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Generation X
Omniverse (UK), 2016. New Copy
That's not "generation X", as in the disaffected American youth of the 90s – but instead an earlier era of culture that was strongly inspired by Malcolm X and other figures of the Civil Rights generation – all paid tribute here by Marc Mac with a wonderful set of beats, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Omniverse (UK), 2006. New Copy
Righteous work from Marc Mac – a set that's got a bit more of a hip hop rhythm at the core than some of his projects with 4Hero – but a sound that's no less spiritual overall! The beats are layered at the bottom to support a mix of keyboard passages, basslines, and sound samples over ... LP, Vinyl record album

Omniverse (UK), 2006. New Copy
A beautiful tribute to the Civil Rights movement – with spoken bits pulled from a range of classic records of the 60s and 70s, all set to beats and keys by the mighty Marc Mac! The record's got a grittier feel than some of Mac's work with 4 Hero – and is a bit more in the mode of his ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Omniverse (UK), 2012. New Copy
Deep grooves from Marc Mac – a set that's way earthier than any of his 4 Hero projects – and which is almost a tribute to the soulful sounds that have shaped his music over the years! The package is a bit similar to Mac's previous Right To Be Civil collection – and definitely has ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ubiquity, 2015. New Copy 2LP
It's been almost a decade since the previous volume in the legendary Rewind series – but given the quality of the music, it's definitely been worth the wait! This edition may well be the coolest so far – as it really offers up some fresh versions of old school classics from the 60s and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Music & Power, 2016. New Copy
Deep spacey house from Ron Trent! "Time & Space" starts with lean, but ready-to-burst beats leading to a wave of synth and more keyboard atmosphere – building strongly as it glides along. "Bass To Love" is another gem, in a spacey dancefloor mode just as great as the ... 12-inch, Vinyl record

Aloha Exotica
Tokuma (Japan), 2016. New Copy
Jazztronik step out here in a whole new direction – offering up their version of the classic exotica sound of the late 50s – along with help from a few of their contemporaries too! Some of the songs are numbers you'll recognize from the postwar years, and the versions here are nicely ... CD

Wondem
Soundway (UK), 2015. New Copy
Dexter Story is a very cool singer with a sound that's almost impossible to describe in words – this hip fusion of global elements and cosmic spirit – one that's echoed by the slight Ethiopian style of the font on the cover, and the album's placement on the Soundway label – and ... CD

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

Cheetah EP
Warp, 2016. New Copy
Richard D James has lost none of his touch over the years – still as stark and ear-grabbing as he was when we heard the first Aphex Twin release – at a level that really lives up to all the faith we've had in his music over the years! This EP is bubbling over with blips, beats, and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Bosq returns with even more brilliantly soulful sounds than on the debut – it's one of the most diverse dancefloor ready set of grooves on the Ubiquity label in years!

Ubiquity, 2000s-Mid 2010s. New Copy 2LP
The Brazilian side of Ubiquity Records – tracks that all offer up a modern interpretation of older modes from Brazil – including bossa nova, samba soul, and even some more contemporary styles! None of the cuts here are straight Brazilian – and instead, they offer up some creative ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ubiquity, 2013. New Copy 2LP
A really wonderful set of grooves – much richer, jazzier, and more soulful than we would have expected – and a great full length introduction to the work of Bosq! Bosq's a name that's been brimming around on singles recently – but on this full album, he really opens up with a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Morning/Evening
Text, 2015. New Copy
Four Tet for the rising and setting sun – two evolving, hypnotic pieces that each roll to around or just past the 20 minute mark – and it's among the best we've heard from Kieran Hebden in years! "Morning Side" starts off with just stuttering, surprisingly clubby sounding ... 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 ...
