Strictly Jaz Unit, 2016. New Copy
Infinitely fresh club grooves from Glenn Underground! "Chicago (The Root) and the dub version are classic level – with some sweet, spacey keyboards on the former and more precise rhythmic focus on the latter. "Tech Chi Zero" is the the atmospheric flipside. 12-inch, Vinyl record

Prescription, 1992/2010. New Copy
Ron Trent's house classic "Altered States" remixed! Includes Trent's own Mothership mix feat Harry Dennis from The It, Carl Craig's "East Side mixx" and Terry Hunter's "States Altered" mix. 12-inch, Vinyl record

Future Vision/Music & Power, 2016. New Copy
Contemporary stunner from the legendary Ron Trent – on his own Music & Power label! "Sao Paulo Sound Systems" has a strong, tropical percussion bent, as you might imagine, while "New York City Country City" works it's own nighttime, jazzy club magic on the other side. 12-inch, Vinyl record

Brownswood (UK), 2014. New Copy
Sublime soulful sounds from Diggs Duke – one of the freshest artists we've heard in years – and one of the few who really live up to the cosmic promise of the Brownswood label! Duke's got this way of singing, speaking, and playing Fender Rhodes with a really righteous sort of vibe ... LP, Vinyl record album

Favorite (France), 2016. New Copy
A wicked boogie from from Magic Source – a contemporary recording, but one with a classic sort of vibe! That quality's no surprise, given that Bjorn Wagner's at the head – fresh from experience in the Mighty Mocambos, but showing much more of a late 70s club style here – with ... 12-inch, Vinyl record

Inflamable (France), 2016. New Copy
A wonderfully jazzy session from DJ Cam – not the Soulshine album of many years back, but an all-instrumental record that may be one of Cam's warmest in years! There's a great small combo vibe to the record – which features a sextet with lots of great keyboards from Eric Legnini, plus ... LP, Vinyl record album

Vibration Black Finger EP
Enid (UK), 2016. New Copy (pic cover)
A very cool project from Lascelle Gordon – an artist with a legacy that goes back to early years in Brand New Heavies, and work for Gilles Peterson's Talkin Loud label – very much back in focus here on a hip project with a spiritual jazz sort of groove! At some level, this EP release ... LP, Vinyl record album

Love Bullet
WeJazz (Finland), 2015. New Copy Gatefold
One of the straightest jazz projects we've heard in years from Timo Lassy – a set that really gets back to the kind of soulful sounds we first loved in his music – served up here with a wicked 60s vibe, and plenty of organ in the mix! The group's a quintet, with added percussion ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Real Kicks
Daiki Sound (Japan), 2016. New Copy
Razor-sharp horns from this up-and-coming Japanese club jazz combo – a group who are supposedly equally tight on the stage as well! Calmera start out in the hard-driving version of jazz that you'll know from earlier Japanese combos like Soil & Pimp Sessions and Quasimode – but they ... 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
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Morning/Evening
Text, 2015. New Copy
Four Tet for the rising and setting sun – two evolving, hypnotic pieces that each roll to around or just past the 20 minute mark – and it's among the best we've heard from Kieran Hebden in years! "Morning Side" starts off with just stuttering, surprisingly clubby sounding ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Sony (Italy), 2015. New Copy 2CD
Maybe the best album to date from Italian singer Mario Biondi – and easily his most soulful set to date! The album's got Mario moving past some of the retro jazz modes of his earliest records, to emerge as this universal soul star with a hell of a sound – a voice that easily moves past ... CD

Love Bullet
MustHaveJazz/Membran (Finland), 2015. New Copy
One of the straightest jazz projects we've heard in years from Timo Lassy – a set that really gets back to the kind of soulful sounds we first loved in his music – served up here with a wicked 60s vibe, and plenty of organ in the mix! The group's a quintet, with added percussion ... CD

Brainfeeder, 2013. New Copy 2LP
Thundercat at the top of his game – delivering spacey synth soul backdrops that are as insistent as they are innovative – paired with emotionally invested vocals and lyricism! Thundercat has a kinship with Brainfeeder founder and creative partner Flying Lotus, particularly given their ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Newmath, 2016. New Copy
A spacey, still soul-steeped bit of abstract beatcraft and vocals by Norvis Junior – a debut EP that should catapult him to the kind of acclaim you see from cats on the Brainfeeder camps and other progressive acts, circa the mid teens! Includes "Not Normal", "More Shakers" ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
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

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

World Of Dub
Heavenly Sweetness (France), 2015. New Copy
Blundetto dives deep into the world of dub – offering up fresh abstractions of work from his previous World Of Blundetto album – but at a level that's completely different than the original! These tracks are maybe even more of a transformation of the originals than the sort of dub work ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Myth Of The Golden Ratio
Ubiquity, 2016. New Copy
A nice one from the appropriately named United Vibrations – a London group that draws from a diverse well of global influences and brings it all to a great, unified groove overall! Stylistically, they work with strains Afrobeat in the rhythm and percussion, spiritual jazz in the moodier, ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
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 ...
