God Loves Detroit
Planet E, 2017. New Copy 2LP
One of the boldest statements we've heard from the Detroit underground in years – and a great reminder that the city's legendary club sound is still alive and well – if you know where to look! Terrence Parker serves up a set that makes the Planet E label very proud – and which ... LP, Vinyl record album
Simmering/Private Life/Long Climb In The Sun
2000 Black (UK), 2017. New Copy
Wicked sounds from this London quartet – a group who've got their roots deep in the city's cosmic scene from the start of the century – and who still can deliver sounds that are more forward-thinking than most of their contemporaries! "Simmering" is more "soaring" ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Acid Man
House Nation Trax (Canada), 2017. New Copy 2LP
Neo classic house from Acidone – a Toronto figure with deep love for classic house and the acid house you'd expect from his moniker and the album title – and really delivers a double platter of solid grooves here! Includes "Go Jack!", "Just House (No Acid In Da ... LP, Vinyl record album
House Nation Trax (Canada), 2017. New Copy
4 mixes of Acidone's "Blacid Storm" – a club mix that brings just the right mix of spacey atmospherics, propellent beats, synth texture and an overall unpredictable, though always floorshaking depth! The other mixes live up to their promise of their subtitles, all keeping the ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Dawn Chorus
Tru Thoughts (UK), 2017. New Copy
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 ... CD
Z Records (UK), 2017. New Copy 2CD
Joey Negro's got a decades-long love of disco – one that began at a time when so many other artists were going for colder, easier ways of serving up a groove – and Joey was a rare talent who could really take things back to the glory days of the clubs! That talent has only gotten ... CD
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! This album may well be Thundercat's masterpiece – not just a summation of all the ideas ... LP, Vinyl record album
Drunk
Brainfeeder, 2017. New Copy

Avex (Japan), 2017. New Copy CD & DVD
It's been quite a long time since we last heard from Mondo Grosso – the Japanese project from Shinichi Osawa whose work was part of the same great wave of 90s Tokyo soul we loved from artists like Mondo Grosso, Kyoto Jazz Massive, and Monday Michiru! Yet, despite the passage of time, and a ... CD
Sudden Hunger (UK), 2017. New Copy
Fantastic material from a group we haven't heard from in years! You might know Les Hommes best from their early work on Schema Records – some killer albums from the start of this century, which firmly established these guys as one of the grooviest groups around! And while it's been years ... LP, Vinyl record album
Record Kicks (Italy), 2016. New Copy
Calibro 35 have always had a soundtrack style to their music – but here, they seem to hit an even trippier, spacier version of the mode – playing an all-live, all-instrumental set that's bubbling over with loads of wonderful elements! Some tracks are still as funky as before, but ... LP, Vinyl record album
Blue Note Remixed Vol 1
Blue Note/Mashibeats, 2016. New Copy
A deep trip through the legendary Blue Note catalog – one that's headed up by keyboardist Mark De Clive-Lowe, who adds in plenty of his own music to the album too! Unlike other projects of this nature, which maybe push the original songs a bit more strongly, Mark really works his own magic ... LP, Vinyl record album
Mark De Clive-Lowe Presents Church (with download)
Mashibeats/Ropeadope, 2014. New Copy 2LP
Mark De Clive-Lowe takes us to church – with a set that's easily his most soulful, spiritual record ever! The album's got a lot more acoustic elements than usual – plenty of jazz elements on tenor, flute, trumpet, and percussion – mixed with Mark's own great Fender Rhodes and ... LP, Vinyl record album
Music & Power, 2017. New Copy
Soulful dancefloor grooves from Ron Trent – and even more evidence, as if it was needed, of the timeless touch of Mr. Trent! "Touch" has tightly syncopated beats, keys and bass with spare bit of breathy vocals – "Fresh On Your Love" is even better, with more of ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Two Way Here One Way Go/No Facetime/BBQ
2000 Black (UK), 2017. New Copy
Fantastic work from this cosmic groove quartet – a group who are continuing to push the future spirit of the London scene into great new dimensions! "Two Way Here One Way Go" has this groove that's definitely broken beat, but which also features lots of live percussion too – ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
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

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! ...
