Vega, 2016. New Copy 3LP Gatefold
A massive project from the great Louie Vega – a man who's given us plenty of majestic moments since his early years in Masters At Work and Nuyorican Soul – but an artist who's maybe outdone himself here, thanks to help from a huge amount of guests and singers! The "starring" ... LP, Vinyl record album

Slavic Souls
BBE (UK), 2016. New Copy
A new sort of a shift for Dalindeo – as you might guess from the title – as the group adds in a bit of slavic roots to their usual jazzy groove! The core instrumentation is still live jazz, but the group also touch on some older Finnish tango modes with the rhythms, and work with the ... CD

2000 Black/BBQ (Japan), 2016. New Copy
Brilliant work from Dego – a rich continuation of the 4Hero groove, but set to styles that are very much Dego's own! The vibe here follows nicely from some of his well-circulated mixes from a few years back – but Dego's directing all the music himself in this flurry of skittish beats ... CD

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

Shameless (Germany), 2016. New Copy
Modern experimentalists TV Pow as freely creative as ever, but a lot more immediately engaging than on of their more out earlier work – this one taking them into abstract soul and hip hop territory, and pulling it off masterfully! TV Pow's unclassiable style has always been one of their key ... LP, Vinyl record album

Music & Power, 2016. New Copy
Deep, soulful grooves from the Ron Trent – balancing soul jazz-steeped moods with club groove atmosphere! "Liquid Love" pairs some dexterous keyboard grooves over some fairly thick beats, lightened just a bit by some airy synth and textural bits of vocal – especially in the ... 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

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

Tru Thoughts (UK), 2016. New Copy 2LP
The Shapes series from Tru Thoughts takes off into space – in a wonderful blend of the label's groundbreaking funk, soul, and contemporary beat-heavy styles! As with other Shapes collections, there's a lot of material here that's getting physical release for the first time – some ... 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

Heavenly Sweetness (France), 2016. New Copy
Anthony Joseph just keeps on getting better and better, and even more interesting with each new record – to a point where the already-hip singer is really blowing our mind with music like this! The songs are longer, richer, and more deeply put together than some of Joseph's earlier work ... LP, Vinyl record album

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

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

Join The Dance
Schema (Italy), 2010. New Copy 2LP
Modal brilliance from Gerardo Frisina – possibly his greatest album ever, and a set that really shows his true transformation into a jazzman! The set's got a wide range of acoustic jazz instrumentation played live, and features none of the rhythm programs you might get on earlier Frisina ... LP, Vinyl record album

Schema (Italy), 2015. New Copy Gatefold
Maybe the hippest album we've ever heard from The Dining Rooms – something we probably could have guessed from their evocation of Sun Ra in the title! And while that title seems a bit obtuse – maybe even a joke – the music here is right on the money, and some of the most serious, ... CD

Warp, 2014. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
Flying Lotus is not only very much alive on You're Dead! – he's as lively as ever – delivering his best, most diverse record to date! The Flying Lotus sound is in peak form here – glitchy beats and spacey keyboards, deftly layered samples, and carrying boundless influences from ... 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
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
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
