Avex (Japan), 2017. New Copy
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
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
Harmonies
Soundway (UK), 2017. New Copy
The third album from Lord Echo – and the set in which this sound may well be finally hitting its stride! As before, there's lots of strands of different scenes going on here – bits of Jamaican, African, and American funk and soul – but there's also a unified vision that really ... LP, Vinyl record album

Music & Power, 2017. New Copy
Ron Trent's an artist who just keeps on getting deeper and deeper over the years – already one of the most solid, soulful talents to emerge from the Chicago house scene – and really going for a global span with the sensibility of these two cuts! Make no mistake, the groove here is ... 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
Innovative Leisure, 2017. New Copy (pic cover)
Masterful jazz-funk-hip hop hybridizers Badbadnotgood nail it once again– on an incredibly cool 12" remix of their stellar IV album standout "Lavender" – with a remix & additional verse by hip hop eternal force Snoop Dogg! The killer original is here, with that thick, ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Mahogani, 2017. New Copy (pic cover)
A masterpiece of spacey soul from Randolph – an artist who may well be giving us one of his greatest tracks with this single! The original tune itself is beautiful – slow-tripping beats, floating piano lines, and moody vocals from the man himself – all elements that seem to take ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Mahogani, 2017. New Copy 2 x 12 inch (pic cover)
Paul Randolph is a singer who never seems to give us enough music – so we're pretty happy to have this double-length EP, which almost works together as a whole new album! Many of the cuts here are either remixes or projects that feature Randolph's vocals with other artists – but there's ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Vendetta (Al Kent main mix, Al Kent dub)
Far Out (UK), New Copy
A fantastic cut from the Far Out Monster Disco Orchestra – given an even more fantastic disco vibe here by Al Kent! The tune begins with lots of great percussion – almost congas like Candido on Salsoul – as strings rise up, the rhythms get deeper, and the whole thing takes off to ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Drunk
Brainfeeder, 2017. New Copy
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 ... CD

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 ... LP, Vinyl record album
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
Tawk Tomahawk
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! ... 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
Irma (Italy), Late 90s/2000s. New Copy
The third volume in this wonderful series from Irma Records – and, like the rest, a great reminder of the way the label revived a classic jazz funk mode back in the 90s – at a time when few folks were willing to give it a try, and almost never got it this right! Saxophone is the lead ... CD
Live At The Blue Whale
Mashibeats/Ropeadope, 2017. New Copy
A jaw-dropper of a record from Mark De Clive-Lowe – much more of a jazz album than anything he's ever done before – and a set that's recorded live, too – which is also more of a change! The style here is wonderful – with Mark handling piano, keyboards, and some live effects ... LP, Vinyl record album
Mark De Clive-Lowe Presents Church
Mashibeats/Ropeadope, 2014. New Copy
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 ... CD
Atemporal Space Tests (with bonus CD)
Schema (Italy), 2017. New Copy
The title of the record may sound a bit scientific, but the music within has a very human appeal – sweet funky rhythms forged by the team of DJ Rocca and Stefano Ghittoni – the latter of whom you might know from previous productions with The Dining Rooms! The sound here is maybe an ... LP, Vinyl record album
