World That We Live In
Blind Faith/Transistor Sound, 2017. New Copy
Sugaray Rayford looks like a vintage soul singer on the cover, and he sounds like one too – here on an album that may well be the first time he really found his groove! Previous Rayford efforts have been a bit more blues-based, but the approach here goes strongly for a deep funk style – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Freestyle (UK), 2017. New Copy
A blistering array of contemporary funk and soul cuts – all served up by DJ Craig Charles – once an actor on the UK scene, now one of the biggest supporters of the global funk underground! As with previous volumes, the set pulls together a range of killer tracks from recent years ... CD
Silver Fox/Fat Beats, 2017. New Copy
A instrumental space funk opus from Shawn Lee – the first new album credited to his Ping Pong Orchestra in a few years – covering the far reaches of the cosmos for the spaciest strains of Sound Library funk, stuttering electro, synthy soul, clubby disco and more! Wildly diverse while ... LP, Vinyl record album
Tribute To My Soul Sisters (with bonus track)
Record Kicks (Italy), 2017. New Copy
A hard-smoking set of female funk – with backing from the mighty Osaka Monaurail combo! Years ago, Martha High was something of a "lost" female soul figure – an artist who worked with James Brown in the 60s, recorded a bit of disco in the 70s, but never fully got her due. ... CD
Kindred Live (colored vinyl)
Sessions Sounds, 2017. New Copy
A fantastic step forward for Detroit's hip Will Sessions combo – a set that's every bit as funky as their previous work, but also has a soaring fusion vibe as well! Amp Fiddler's with the group on keyboards – and with his help, they hit sort of a Bitches Brew vibe here – a style ... LP, Vinyl record album

What's For Breakfast
Dig, 2017. New Copy
Grits, bacon, and biscuits on top of a Hammond B3? The record's already got our attention, and we haven't even heard the music! Fortunately, we're already in love with these guys – as they really wowed us with their previous album, and seem to have sharpened their groove even more – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Make The Road By Walking
Dunham/Daptone, 2008. New Copy
A bold slice of work from the Daptone musical universe – a hip project that features work from members of The Dap Kings, El Michels Affair, Budos Band, and Antibalas – all put together with a range of sounds that really show the full spectrum of their styles! The groove's quite unique ... CD
Look Closer
Daptone, 2015. New Copy
The mighty debut of Saun & Starr – a female soul duo who have been best known for their backing work behind Sharon Jones – stepping out here into the spotlight with some great support from the Dap-Kings! Although funky, the duo also have more of a deep soul approach than Sharon ... CD
Soul Of A Woman
Daptone, 2017. New Copy
The fantastic final album from Sharon Jones – a wonderfully deep talent who was taken from us all too soon! The set's maybe the ultimate setting for Sharon's incredible voice – as it features both her longtime core combo, the Dap-Kings – as well as additional backings from the ... CD

Book Of Sound
Honest Jons (UK), 2017. New Copy
Beautiful sounds from Hypnotic Brass Ensemble – a group who've matured tremendously in the time that they've been giving us music – and who almost seem ready here to take on the legacy of their musical father – the late Kelan Phil Cohran! There's a complexity to the horn work ... CD
Daptone, 2010/2014/2017. New Copy 3CD
A triple-pack of soulful sounds from Sharon Jones – three albums together at a very nice price! The header of the set is Soul Of A Woman – the fantastic final album from Sharon Jones – a wonderfully deep talent who was taken from us all too soon! The set's maybe the ultimate ... CD
GED Soul, 2014. New Copy
The first-ever full length we've ever heard from AJ & The Jiggawatts – and a record that really lives up to the promise of their work on funky 45! These guys are a deep funk combo, but one with a difference – energy that's a bit more raw and rough around the edges, in the best ... LP, Vinyl record album
Return To The 37th Chamber
Big Crown, 2017. New Copy
El Michels return again to the Wu-Tang chambers – and the results this time might even be better than before! Wu-Tang forged their initial sound out of a love of offbeat samples and unusual funk – so it's only fitting that one of the hippest funk groups around strip the music right ... CD
High Desert Low Tide
Aural Tradition, 2017. New Copy
It's been a few years since we last heard from Clutchy Hopkins – and in that time, he definitely seems to have deepened his groove – coming up with a range of sonic textures and styles that nicely expand from the spare breaks and funk of his previous work! Maybe it's the collaboration ... LP, Vinyl record album
Lugnut Brand, 2017. New Copy
A stripped-down approach to old school funk – one that shows that you don't even need horns or a singer to keep things strongly soulful – just a few key instruments finding their grooves, and serving up great solos in the process! The group's a quartet – with Hammond, guitar, ... LP, Vinyl record album
One Of These Days
Haggis (UK), 2017. New Copy
The Haggis Horns use plenty of their namesake instrument here – but what really makes the record great is its funky rhythmic core – a rock-solid rhythm section that has the larger group rivaling some of the best deep funk combos of the contemporary scene! The Haggis Horns are no ... LP, Vinyl record album
Cipher
Freestyle (UK), 2017. New Copy
A fantastic album of funky soundtrack grooves – one that was recently recorded by guitarist Andy Tolman, but which instantly takes us back to the best 70s film scores by artists like Quincy Jones, Johnny Pate, or Lalo Schfrin! Like both of those giants at their best, Andy works here in a ... LP, Vinyl record album
