Stones Throw, 2014. New Copy
Easy to do it disco with a groove this great – a warmer, more modern soul take on the sound of Myron & E – but still with the funky undercurrent of their previous work! The main extended mix here has a nice sharp edge – almost a drumbreak snapping underneath some rich horns ... 12-inch, Vinyl record

Rites
Avantgroidd, 2003. Used
The most ambitious album yet from one of the most ambitious collectives in the funk underground! This time the Burnt Sugar group has come up with the sprawling, classically-aware The Rites – a set of tracks that is officially inspired by Stravinsky's Le Sacre Du Printemps, but cooks up just ... CD

Stones Throw, 2009. New Copy
Galactic funk & synth soul from Dam-Funk – his epic full length debut Toeachizown for Stones Throw – and a record that should be a game changer for the southern Cali ambassador of cosmic funk beats, heavy bass and synth grooves! Dam-Funk is part throwback to the electro era – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Inland Emperor
MRI, 2013. New Copy
Damn great work from the Greyboy Allstars – a record that's deeper, hipper, and more rewarding than we ever remember from the group – a rich blend of jazz and funk, without any tricks or gimmicks at all! The playing of the members has really deepened a lot since the last album – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sahara Swing (with bonus 7-inch & download)
Now Again, 2008. New Copy 2LP (reissue)
One of the hippest albums from the funky empire that includes Poets Of Rhythm and The Whitefield Brothers – a set of Afro-exotic grooves that really blows our minds – and which opens the group up into whole new territory! There's echoes of Mulatu, Salah Ragab, and other older exotic ... LP, Vinyl record album

Trugroid, 2000. Used
The first album by this hip New York collective that lies somewhere at the crossroads between black rock, jamband, and avant modern orchestration – featuring a lineup conducted by Greg Tate, no less! The album notes begin with the sentence "So this is our Bitches Brew" – and ... CD

Crepescularium
Trugroid, 2001. Used
This second part of Burnt Sugar's 2001 trilogy really picks up some energy from the first – fiercely jamming guitars mixing with dark soundscapes and filtered rhythms, soaring out in a complicated mass of sound that's every bit as adventurous as it is soulful. Features rhymes by Mugabe, ... CD

Ubiquity, 2001. Used
Excellent work from Greyboy – his first album in years, and well worth the wait! The set shows considerable growth in his style – yet should still also be extremely pleasing to fans of his older work, as he's kept the commitment to mixing heavy hip hop beats with tight funky jazz, and ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Truth & Soul, 2014. New Copy
Instrumental versions of all the tracks from Lee Fields' Emma Jean album – served up at a level that really lets us hear how great the music is! Leon Michels is at the helm on keyboards, guitar, and even some sax and flute – and the overall vibe has a mix of deep soul and richer ideas ... LP, Vinyl record album

Lord Newborn & The Magic Skulls
Ubiquity, 2009. New Copy
Massively messed-up grooves – and a rare one-off collaboration between Money Mark, Shawn Lee, and Tommy Guerrero – all artists we've come to love for their own funky music over the years! The sound here is as wild as you'd expect from the cover – a really trippy approach to funk ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Jazzman/Now Again, 2011. Used Gatefold
Globe-trotting funky music from The Natural Yogurt Band – the group's second proper album – an even farther reaching and more perfectly executed blend of pulpy Sound Library styled jazz funk and all around playful grooves! The NYB is essentially a duo – Miles Newbold plays keys, ... CD

Break Out
Concord, 2005. Used
A well-titled set, given that the album is Soulive's first away from the Blue Note label – a surprisingly tight outing done for the mostly-mellow Concord imprint, and a real back-to-basics outing that we totally love! The group's in fine fine form for the record – working with that ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Trugroid, 2001. Used
The first part in Burnt Sugar's 2001 trilogy – a darkly jamming effort that's located somewhere at the "intersection of Stockhausen and Shorter"! The guitars are very strongly in the lead on this one – sounding almost like a Glen Branca-driven jamband, as Vernon Reid, Rene ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Ubiquity, 2015. New Copy
A brilliant take on vintage sounds by Cornwall combo The Mighty Sceptres – seamlessly mixing vintage funky group soul styles! As much as we dug their earlier 7-inch on Ubiquity, we're pretty much floored by how much deeper this excellent full length cuts! Singer Angeline Morrison has a way ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Mystery Road
Tramp (Germany), 2015. New Copy 2LP
Totally wicked funk from Lucky Brown – a contemporary set, but one recorded with all the grit in the grooves you'd hear from some ancient studio sessions from the late 60s! Lucky's not just another funk revivalist – as he goes here for a sound that's never too perfect, and which often ... LP, Vinyl record album
