Sub Rosa (Belgium), 1978. New Copy 2CD
of the most interesting ethnographic projects we've ever heard from sound artist and theoretician David Toop – a series of late 70s recordings of the Yanomami cultures in the far north of Brazil – a people who had very little contact with mainstream civilization, and a very different ... CD

ATA (UK), 2015. New Copy
A contemporary record, but one we'd rank right up there with the moodiest, most exotic African funk albums of the 70s – especially the gems we've discovered through the Ethiopiques series! These guys play in a style that certainly references Ethiopian reeds and keyboard work of the 70s, but ... CD

Soundway (UK), 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy
A sprawling set of tropical grooves from Panama, and the third in the series from Soundway – compiled by Roberto Gyemant and Miles Cleret, with a little help for this set from Will Holland, aka Quantic – as soulful and brilliant as it is essential! These rare recordings blend cultural ... CD

Wah Wah 45s (UK), 2015. New Copy
Very old school Afro Funk from Dele Sosimi – and we mean that in the best way possible! Dele's working here in a style that's right in the best 70s mode from Fela Kuti – very hypnotic at a rhythmic level, but filled with progressive lyrics from the man himself – all at a level ... CD

Songs Of Paapieye
Awesome Tapes From Africa, 2015. New Copy
Amazing sounds on an instrument we'd never heard before – the gyil, a version of the xylophone from Ghana, but one that operates with a very different sound than the more familiar western instrument! The gyil features wooden slats over a gourd, but with this really resonant quality that ... CD

Soul Jazz (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 2 CDs
A way cooler set of music than you might expect – not the kind of overdone Caribbean cliches of the mainstream, but some really great lesser-known gems that mix together sounds and styles from Cuba to Haiti, to Jamaica, and beyond – served up here in a host of gems all hand-picked by ... CD

Pharaway Sounds (Spain), Mid 70s. New Copy
Rare singles from this ultra-cool Turkish singer – including many tracks that are b-sides of vintage 45s, and maybe even trippier than the album material we've heard before! The work was recorded in the mid 70s, but there's much more of a late 60s vibe going on here – from the trippy ... CD

Flight 17
Nimbus, 1978. New Copy
One of the best Horace Tapscott albums on Nimbus – and one that features him playing with the Pan-African Peoples Arkestra, who give the session a much fuller feel than some of Horace's other sparer sets. The group's made up of some strong hip players from the LA underground – and in a ... CD

East 101
Nimbus, 1981. New Copy
A dream of a record from the LA spiritual underground of the 70s – and one of the only records we've ever seen from reedman Gary Bias! The date's got a soulful depth that makes it one of the most compelling albums on the legendary Nimbus label – a rhythmic pulse that's often modal, and ... CD

Luv N' Haight/P-Vine (Japan), Early 70s. New Copy
Beautiful material from this legendary Bay Area soul jazz combo! The Sons & Daughters of Lite have an incredibly spiritual sound – one that sounds sort of like the best groups on the Strata East label, with touches of Roy Ayers or James Mason-esque soulfulness, but with a little less ... CD
