Firm Roots Remix

CD (Item 510522) Idyllic/99 Records (Germany), 1996 — Condition: Used
$7.99 ...

CD

An incredible meeting of the global underground – one that features work from Silent Poets remixed by some of the hippest talents of the European scene at the time! The original album is easily one of the best things the Poets ever did – really beautiful work that's mostly instrumental, and a unique blending of jazz, dub, bossa, and dancefloor elements – all with a freshness that still holds up a lot more strongly than the host of imitators that came up in the group's wake – almost made even better here with an additional range of sounds from the remixers! There's a wonderful blend of acoustic and electric elements that keeps things on edge throughout – and although a number of songs repeat, the mood of the mixes is quite varied, and really makes for a complex little record. Titles include "Stowing Away (DJ Cam rmx)", "Talk Is Toy (More Rockers dub plate mix)", "Stowing Air (Fila Brazilia rmx)", "Talk Is Toy (Skylab rmx inst)", "Subspecies (Silent Poets rmx)", "Talk Is Toy (DJ Cam rmx)", "Talk Is Toy (Smith & Mighty rmx)", and "Talk Is Toy (Up Bustle & Out rmx)".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.


Used CD Grade

We have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible.

When you purchase a Used CD you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks, the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves), and the booklet to be in good shape. Used CDs may show some signs of use but if there are significant details or defects we will list them underneath the item — just like we do with LPs — so look there for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details.

All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.

Toys Factory (Japan), 1993. Used
Groovy soundtrack that this Japanese acid jazz group recorded for a film that we know nothing about. Lots of short instrumental cuts, with a different feel than their usual recordings. Some nice stuff that's very subtle, plus some other cuts that go over the top. Cuts include "Kick ... CD
Melting Pot (Germany), 2013. Used
A contemporary riff on benchmark 70s soul jazz and funky fusion from French producer Medline – who reimagines classics by Roy Ayers, Lonnie Liston Smith, Joe Henderson, Freddie Hubbard and others! It's good, solid stuff – reinterpreting the material in a way that's very mindful of its ... CD

Seasons
Kindred Spirits (Netherlands), 2012. Used
A beautiful project from the contemporary underground scene in LA – a record that shares lots of energy and musicians with recordings by Build An Ark and Life Force Trio! Dexter Story's the main force behind the record, but the set's a strongly collaborative effort – and features ... CD

Moodymann

Forevernevermore
Moodymann, Late 90s. Used
A great full length from Moodymann, loaded down with excellent contemporary club tracks, all infused with his jazzy soulful sound, that takes them above mere tracks for mixing. 8 nice lengthy tracks, with a great sense of dynamics, with many of them building nicely to crescendos before folding ...

Irma/Flying, 1995. Used
Nice bit of funky stuff on Irma, and some tracks that have a bit of a dub twist at times. The best tracks have a nice electronic funk feel, with a straight ahead funk sound. Other tracks get a little too dubby for our taste, but they might sit well with you if you like other dubby acid jazz ... CD
G Stone/K7 (Germany), 2002. Used
Everything you've ever come to expect from Tosca – heavy beats, tuneful flourishes, and a downtempo groove that never breaks its cool – despite the presence of a rich array of other remix talents here. The posturing gets a bit stiff for us at times – and makes us long for the ... CD

Actress X London Contemporary Orchestra

Lageos
Ninja Tune, 2018. Used
A pretty moody little collaboration between electronic wizard Actress (Darren Cunningham), and the London Contemporary Orchestra – both working here in a way that's quite unlike other records of this nature we've heard in the past! At first, we were maybe guessing that the set would have a ... CD
Columbia, 1959. Used
What can we say? This is the ultimate Miles Davis album – the one that includes so many songs that we've heard way too much in Starbucks, in retail stores, or at a friend's house who claims to be a "jazz expert", but is really a yuppie dilettante. Yet somehow, over all the years, ... CD
