Battery Acid (main, dub)/ Mr Heard
Strictly Jaz Unit, 2016. New Copy
Searing, too dangerous to touch club grooves from the mighty Glenn Underground! "Battery Acid" has compelling beats, but a really nice, airy synth grooves floating over them. "Mr Heard" is another gem – and a compelling homage to Larry Heard, with some really sweet piano ... 12-inch, Vinyl record

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

Voltaire (Netherlands), 2016. New Copy
Fantastic modern boogie from The Pendletons – a duo who've clearly been influenced by the sound of the 80s underground, but who really find a way to do something new with their music on this set! I Ced and Jimetta Rose guest on the title cut – "Gotta Get Up" – a sweet ... LP, Vinyl record album

Leaving, 2015. New Copy
A stunner from drummer and all around atmospheric beats master Deantoni Parks – who has worked as a drummer for a very impressive list of stars (none of whom we'll name here, because Deantoni gets all the props from us) – but left to his own creative devices, he's crafted one of best ...

Choose Your Own Adventure
Soundway (UK), 2016. New Copy
Malcolm Catto is at the production helm for this sweet debut set from Vanishing Twin – and you can definitely hear his touches in the music – which is often funky and trippy at the same time! The group themselves have kind of a fuzz-frequency vibe that lies somewhere between late 60s ... 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

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 ... LP, Vinyl record album

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 ...

Cuss, 2016. New Copy 2 X 10" Gatefold
Heady sounds from Gaslamp Killer – tunes that are as fuzzy as they are funky – which might be something that we'd say about the man himself! As with other productions, there's definitely a focus on the low end and lo-fi here – but never as a lack of anything, or as a mistake ... LP, Vinyl record album

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!
