Red Notes
Soul Jazz (UK), 2018. New Copy
A really jagged little record from Hieroglyphic Being – a set that feels even more stripped-down than his previous album, to a point where we can really focus on his inventive beats and cosmic keyboards! The album's dedicated to a range of influences that include Herbie Hancock, Sun Ra, ... CD

BBE (UK), 2018. New Copy
A triple-header of talents – all working here to make a cut that really lives up to the soulful legacy of Ron Trent! The main version begins with bubbling percussion and beats, inflected by these cosmic keyboards – while a spoken lyric gives the whole thing a strong sense of knowledge ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Cocktail Sax
Irma (Italy), 2018. New Copy
Slinky sax with a touch of funk – served up here by Fabio Tullio at a level that's way nicer than you'd expect from the title! At some level, the record's clearly trying to evoke earlier eras of Italian instrumentalists on the sax – such as the long run of 60s and 70s albums by Fausto ... CD
Rocksteady Disco, 2018. New Copy
Nice little platter rare mixes from the Rocksteady Disco team! First up is Ladymonix's deep mix of Peter Croce's "Revival", hypnotic from the start with a steady beat and looped vocal, bringing more texture and atmosphere in as it rolls along – and Pontchartrain's Deep Unto Deep mix ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Dawn Chorus Remixes
Tru Thoughts (UK), 2017. New Copy 2LP
A very different take on the sound of the Dawn Chorus album by Hidden Orchestra – a set that opens up the door to a whole host of contemporary producers and mixers – each of whom take the music in a very different direction! The beats and basslines are often a lot stronger here than on ... LP, Vinyl record album
Mathematics, 2018. New Copy
Deviere remixes of some solid, Latin soul steeped tunes by Vivian Garcia for Jamal Moss's Mathematics label! The World House mix of "Ven Conmigo" has big beats and tripped out vocals, rooted to Latin jazz by the horn in the mix. The Deeply Envisioned rework of "Luna" is anchored ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Basic Amounts
Inner Moods, 2018. New Copy
A timeless deep house groover from club legend Abacus! This is a hypnotic jam with steadily thumping beat, echoey atmosphere and tripped out, but still soulfully resonant bit of vocal. Solid stuff! 12-inch, Vinyl record
BB1
Pony Canyon (Japan), 2018. New Copy
The first music we've heard in quite awhile from Jazztronik – and a set that has them sounding even more funk-oriented than before! We've always loved the creations of leader Ryota Nozaki – even his mellower moments – but this time around, he really steps into new territory by ... CD
606/YHS, 2018. New Copy 2LP
A trip through seven wonders of far-reaching beathead bliss from Detroit via Chicago producer Moppy – – with guest production and/or instrumentation from Kenny Keys, Radius Inc, Beyond Luck, DJ Kana and more! We knew from the first track we were in for something special, with the opener ... LP, Vinyl record album
BBE (UK), 2006. New Copy 2LP
The long-awaited full length assemblage of singles from Marc Mac's breezy, soul jazz-steeped hip hop groove project Visioneers – a mesmerizing batch of reworked classic hip hop tunes that's well worth the wait! Dirty Old Hip Hop is far too humble a description for the rich material – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Irma (Italy), 2000s. New Copy
A collection with a classic-looking cover, and some classic-styled instrumentals as well – even though most of this music is only about a decade old! The set brings together a sweet batch of guitar-driven numbers from the Irma Records catalog – an imprint that we can always trust to ... CD
Irma (Italy), 2000s. New Copy
Fantastic sounds from the Italian scene – work from the ultra-rich catalog of Irma Records, pulled from a time when the label was one of the hippest things going in the world of funky jazz! Back in the mid 90s, Irma switched from a house-focused imprint to step back into the world of the 60s ... CD
Headphoniq, 2017. New Copy
Four tracks on this killer cut from Ron Trent – a groove so tight, it might better be called "thumpin" instead of "dancin"! The basslines pound plenty hard on the Ed Nine remix – and the keys just start to swell in the middle – whereas on the Jordan Fields mix ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Clin D'Oeil
Kif/P-Vine (Japan), 2007. New Copy
One of the hippest French albums we've heard in years – a laidback blend of hip hop and jazz that really lives up to the cover's homage to the legendary Black Jazz label! The Jazz Liberatorz have a great way with a groove – a style that's openly flowing and instrumentally jazzy – ... CD
Fat Beats, 2017. New Copy
The mighty Daedelus's entry in the Baker's Dozen series for Fat Beats – delivering a killer, spacey hip hop instrumentals set with an adventurous psych bent! Armed with samplers, Technics 1200 turntables and a few interesting instruments lying around (a tenor guitar, a bass clarinet, a double ... LP, Vinyl record album
Rocksteady Disco, 2017. New Copy
Afro-Brazil inspired club grooves from Rocksteady Disco honco Peter Croce! "Agape" builts slow from a beat, with warmer vibe in the near distance that comes on in full as it progresses. "Maractu Detroit" mexicans electronic beats and more organic, tropical atmosphere with the ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Decade
Record Kicks (Italy), 2018. New Copy Gatefold
Calibro 35 have grown a heck of a lot in the last ten years – from a group who already had a strong ear for vintage soundtrack and sound library funk – to one who've definitely brought a lot of their own ideas to the music too! The sound here is razor sharp and right on the money ... LP, Vinyl record album
From The Beginning
Al Dente (Denmark), 2018. New Copy
Alex Puddu's going right back to the beginning here – serving up some tight, sharp sounds that are very much in the 70s funk mode that first gave him inspiration! And this time around, he's got Lonnie Jordan from War on board – singing on three of the album's great tracks – which ... LP, Vinyl record album
