Dekmantel (Germany), 1970s/1980s/1990s. New Copy
Motor City Drum Ensemble serve up a brilliant collection of rare cuts for this first volume of the Selector series – mostly tracks that are years ahead of their time, in a blend of cosmic funk, future house, and other hip underground styles! The work here ranges from 1979 to the mid 90s ... CD

Stix (France), 2016. New Copy
Maybe the coolest record we've ever heard from Mato – one that really moves past some of the dubby hip hop styles of his previous albums, by taking on a whole host of classic film scores from the 70s! The music builds beautifully from songs you'd know from action films, blacksploitation ... 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 ...

IV
Innovative Leisure, 2016. New Copy
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 ... CD

Far Out (UK), 2016. New Copy
One of the best cuts from this ultra-cool club combo – given a special alternate mix! Jose Roberto Bertrami provides plenty of classic keyboards of the track – those spare-stepping, warmly-grooving elements he brought to older work by Azymuth – but they're definitely tuned ... 12-inch, Vinyl record

Flying Buddha, 2016. New Copy
The title certainly gets it right – as the cuts here are "recalibrations" of earlier Hiatus Kaiyote material – as we'd expect from the group, not the usual remix package, but something that's a whole lot more! The set begins with the wonderful "Prince Minikid (live ... 12-inch, Vinyl record

Other Directions
Schema (Italy), 2004. New Copy 2LP
Incredible work from Nicola Conte – Schema records maestro making his Blue Note debut with this set – and giving the label one of their best new albums of the 21st Century! The record's quite different than Nicola's programmed dancefloor work for Schema – and is much more of an ... 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

Natural
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 – ... CD

Keystone
Warner (Japan), 2016. New Copy
Beautiful sounds from Jazztronik – a set that reminds us why we first fell in love with his music so many years ago! The album mixes wonderful keyboard lines and warmly soulful vocals – the former from the man himself, Ryo Nozaki – the latter from guests who include Valerie ... CD

Find The Love
Unique (Germany), 2016. New Copy
Were the Jazz Invaders ever this soulful before? We don't seem to remember that – as they come on totally strong and wonderful here – with a groove that might even rival the best previous work by big-name combos like Incognito or Brand New Heavies! Like both those groups, the Jazz ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
BBE (UK), 2016. New Copy
A cut that really lives up to its name – as the single's got a timeless sound that takes us back to the glory days of club – from the early disco years, right on up through the first emergence of soulful house! Kon's compiled plenty of classic cuts over the years, and now he finally ... 12-inch, Vinyl record

St Germain
Nonesuch, 2015. New Copy 2LP
It's been more than a few years since we've heard from Ludovic "St Germain" Navarre – and in that time, he's really found a way to add a lot of fresh elements to his music! Unlike the jazz-sample mode that first got St Germain his big international start, this set's got a much more ... LP, Vinyl record album

Fool
Brainfeeder, 2016. New Copy
A bright blend of abstract electronics and leftfield jazz from Dutch experimentalist Mitchel Van Dinther, aka Jamezoo – and one more significant reminder that the Brainfeeder label is home to some of the best, most creative modern instrumental music of the past couple decades! After the ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Ubiquity, 2015. New Copy
A contemporary set, but one that's trying for a sound library vibe – in particular, the kind of moody, more electronic work that was coming from the French and UK scenes in the 70s! There's some funky elements here, but they're all moving nice and slow – brooding bass stepping slowly ... LP, Vinyl record album

Defected (UK), 1990s/2000s. New Copy 4CD
The title definitely gets it right – as the team of Kenny Dope and Louie Vega are certainly masters of house – as you'll hear in this overstuffed 4CD set! The package brings together 40 tracks that really span the gamut of the duo's genius – from their important early house ... CD

Orbita
Nang (UK), 2016. New Copy
The spacey look of the cover is a great fit for the music – a set of keyboard-heavy club instrumentals, which often come across with a 70s sort of cosmic disco vibe! The performance is as spare as the album's title – usually just basslines, rhythms, and loads of great keyboard lines on ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Irma (Italy), 2016. New Copy
LTJ Experience started out as one of the few great Italian club artists to carry forward the disco sound of the glory years into the final decade of the last century – and since that time, he's just continued to evolve his sound – to a point where he comes across here with a wonderfully ... CD
