Spirit Boogie (12" repress)
Cat: OMLTD 004. Rel: 02 May 16
  1. Bright Moments (5:40)
  2. Spirit Boogie (5:25)
  3. Deep Mantra (6:05)
Review: Bristol beat man Admin had a fine 2015, racking up releases on Sleazy Beats Recordings, Boogie Cafe and Banoffee Pies. By the sounds of this deliciously sunny 12" for the mighty Omena imprint, Admin is set to continue this rich vein of dancefloor satisfying form. "Bright Moments" sets the tone, veering off down a blissful jazz funk path where you can't tell what is sampled and what is being played live. Face down, the title cut is the one that DJs will pull for most thanks to the more pronounced groove, instrumentation and expert fx usage - what a sax sample! "Deep Mantra" closes out on a mid-tempo vibe, and has set closer written all over it. In a word: blinding!

  6. Better Tomorrow (4:20)
Review: Byron The Aquarius resurfaced earlier this year after a nine-year absence, delivering the future jazz/deep house fusion of High Life on Sound Signature. This speedy follow-up on Kyle Hall's Wild Oats label is, if anything, even better. Warm, rich, soulful and evocative, it includes six superb cuts. These variously touch on off-kilter modern soul ("Co$mic $hit"), Herbie Hancock-influenced deep house (the jazz-funk synths, woozy chords and smooth beats of "Moments In Life"), intergalactic hip-hop beats (the impeccable "Space N Time"), blissfully Balearic house (the hazy positivity of "The Sun"), and jazz-influenced house rollers ("Better Tomorrow").

  3. Orbiting Uhura (6:10)
  4. The Vault Descends (5:26)
Review: UK legend Dego and killer keys-man Kaidi Tatham have been in a rich vein of form of late, dropping brilliant EPs on Eglo, Sound Signature and Rush Hour (the latter under their 2000Black alias). Here, they return to Eglo with four more slices of warm, rich, soul-flecked fluidity. As with previous outings, much of the material has a laidback jazz-funk feel, particularly "Orbiting Uhara" and the delicious "The Vault Descends" (think bustling bruk rhythms and darting boogie synths). They also offer up some tougher, synth-laden bruk-funk in the shape of "Man Made", while "Black Is Key" sees them unfurl a head-nodding vocal roller.

Mean Streets Part Three (limited numbered heavyweight vinyl 12")
Cat: SWAMP 030. Rel: 02 May 16
  1. Mean Streets (part 3) (4:24)
  2. Step Up (4:57)
  3. Sexy Lady (5:23)
Review: Somewhat belatedly, the Mean Streets trilogy of releases from Falty DL on Loefah's Swamp 81 label draws to a close. Laid down by Drew Lustman between 2009 and 2012, the music that featured on these Mean Streets records have always been some of our favourite Falty DL material and this closing installment is no different. In his own words, this is Falty DL at his most quintessentially New York, "Reminds me of living on St. Marks street in Manhattan in a shoebox making tunes all day hearing neighbours fight and f*ck. What a time to be alive." Continuing the tradition of previous editions, proceedings open with "Mean Streets (Part Three)", a delicious little jazzy number that might just sample Sampha around some slick MPC work, whilst the B-side showcases Lustman's more contemplative side.

Marilyn (12" repress)
Cat: EGLO 013. Rel: 28 Mar 16
  1. Marylin
  2. Farukx
Review: ** 2015 repress of the Eglo essential from the don Shepard ** Eglo quietly slip out a double dose of Floating Points whilst no one is looking and sit back and watch the whole world scramble for a copy. A double A Side release from Sam Shepherd which finally sees him release the all conquering "Marilyn" - this is a track that's been dropped by thems in the know for a while now and is reason enough to indulge in this finely presented twelve inch. If your ears have not been graced by the sumptuous Dam Funk meets Theo bump of this track then you are in for a late week treat - beatdown future boogie of the highest order! Serving further notice of Floating Points' envious talent for arrangements ""Farukx"" echoes his recent Ensemble deviations, though the orchestral arrangements are complemented by delicately stuttering drums and an underlying bed of ethereal bliss which together proves to be quite captivating.

  4. Yuka Music (Mo Kolours remix) (4:25)
Review: The fourth and final instalment of Peterson's Havana Club Rumba Sessions, here we find him recruiting the currently unmatchable 22a family for some of the most exciting remixes of the series. Reginald slows the vibe down and strips out the instrumentation to let the vocal really sparkle. Tenderlonious explores the frenetic dynamic of the drums and teases with their relentless energy. Al Dobson gets all loopy and funky while Mo Kolours breaks down "Yuka Music" and rebuilds it under his own terms; all whoops, hollers and spacey percussion, it's another stone cold Kolours killer.

  3. La Plaza (Poirier remix) (4:23)
  4. Mi Yimboro (Djoyvan remix) (6:28)
Review: Three times the charm: for the third instalment of his Havana Club Rumba Sessions Peterson casts his global net far and wide as creative individuals from all corners step up to rumba reinterpretation challenge. Debruit provides his most dancefloor-minded cut in a long time with sturdy beats and a big blushing bassline. Daisuke Tanabe & Yosi Horikawa add a touch of evocative reggaeton that's peppered with subtle breakbeats. Poirier takes us on an Osunlade-level spiritual journey while Djoyvan takes off from where he left us on the Peterson's last Cuban jaunt in 2011; one of the most authentic rumbas of the collection, he futureproofs it with an array of dizzying FX and production flourishes that offer something new on every listen.

Played by: Kisk, Weedyman
Review: Peterson returns to Havana to continue where he left us five years ago. This time the focus is placed squarely on the rumba, it's many variations, mutations and relationship with other musical forms. Complete with a documentary, sample pack and full remix album, it's another unique international bounty. Here are two examples of its hip-shaking magic: Motor City Drum Ensemble anchors the rumba down with a stately 4/4 allowing the sensation come through the keys, bass and insistent percussion. Max Graef and Glenn Astro celebrate the weird in "Weird Melody" with a stuttering kicks and wavey synth washes that keep their own sense of tempo.

Review: Last time we heard from Cleon and Jazzy Pidjay, otherwise known as Last Bongo In Paris, was back in 2013 on EDR...and here they are back on the same label, and out the bottom of a hat. Similarly to last time, "Bahia Swing" manages to conjure the right balance between jazz, funk and something a little more tropical, a sound and panache that is carried through to the following four cuts of juice. Our favourites are "Ritmo Loco" for its Latin energy, and the delightfully broken "Jarumba". If you're looking for something a little jazzy and saucy, but that pushes beyond the genre's natural confinements, this is it.

  2. Les La-Bas (3:05)
Review: Ninja Tune know how to come up with the goods for RSD, and they've truly hit the nail on head with this epic two-tracker from legendary French jazz bassist Henri Sexier, reimagined by the mind of Bonobo. The original cut of "Les La-Bas", which resides on the B-side, is a wonderfully loose blend of raw guitar strings and violin cello strings held together by a delicious beat jingle; the Bonobo remix manages to carry that musical power onto an effective house swing that ends up somewhere in the region of a Larry Levan classic. Don't miss it!

Review: Lascelle Gordon's latest creative brainchild, Vibration Black Finger follows a long line exciting, unique and highly accomplished fusions: Brand New Heavies, Campag Velocet and Helliocentrics are just the tip of the iceberg. Here we find him launching a new community style project with multiple collaborators all sharing the same spiritual jazz vision: Vibration Black Finger. Free loose and layered in dizzying textures and ideas, it sits somewhere between Donald Byrd Band & Voices, Mary Lou Williams and Sun Ra but arranged and produced with the future in mind. From the hypnotic urgency of the vocal refrains on "In Rhythm" to the ghostly space of "Empty Streets", this is yet another exciting new chapter for Gordon.

  2. Wu15 - "Space & Time" (2:17)
  3. Wu15 - "The Anthem" (5:02)
  4. Henry Wu - "Shahada" (2:52)
Review: It was only a matter of time before Henry Wu and K15 would link up with London's Eglo, and their respective prior releases for the likes of Wild Oats, Rhythm Section and 22a have earned them a spot in one of the finest house and broken beat labels around. "Love's Gambit" is a perfect example of the latter genre, a sublime blend of jazzy percussion swings and smooth melodic drifts, followed by the even more soulful bounces of the gentle "Space & Time" - one for the jazz fusion heads! "The Anthem" heads towards more housey spheres thanks to its stable beat pattern - it-s an absolute peach of a tune, by the way - but it's "Shahada" that governs the dancefloor with its rough MPC drum programming and finger-licking synth rotations. A beautiful and fitting addition to the catalogue.

Review: For his latest full-length excursion, veteran bossa and jazz-dance revivalist Nicola Conte has found himself a muse. While it's Conte's composition, production and pitch-perfect playing that provides the canvas, Natural sparkles more than some of his albums due to the vocal presence of Stefania Dipierro. The Italian singer's breathy, sweet and hugely atmospheric delivery - seemingly in a trio of languages - sits somewhere between classic jazz and Astrud Gilberto, a stylistic trait fully in keeping with Conte's jaunty, sun-kissed instrumentation. As a result, Natural sounds like a long lost Brazilian classic - all lilting bossa, sprightly samba, with a sprinkling of summery soul-jazz - despite its' contemporary Italian roots.

Review: Given that Nina Simone's 1958 debut album, Little Girl Blue, is something of a stone cold classic, it would be fair to say that DJ Maestro was taking a huge risk when he decided to get it remixed by contemporary artists. Thankfully, most involved have done a fine job, balancing the need to put their own spin on things, while paying due reverence to the source material. Highlights include a slick Reflex edit of perennial favourite "My Baby Just Cares For Me", a fast-paced, jazz-dance flavoured interpretation of "Love Me Or Leave", a sumptuous deep house take on "I Loves You Porgy" by Medd Dierdrop, and, best of all, a fantastic Latin house rework of "African Mailman" by Opolopo.

Review: In the two years since the release of the Rye Lane Volume 1 LP, Al Dobson Jr has been busy. This belated, mixtape style follow-up is something of a beast, with 28 cuts, interludes and quick-fire rhythm tracks to enjoy. Like its' predecessor, Rye Lane Volume II & III is similar in ethos to the work of his friend and contemporary Mo Kolours, with tropical rhythms, African drums and low-slung hip-hop beats being combined with dusty vocal samples, rich Rhodes chords, freshly baked electronics, and all manner of tasty global influences. Highlights come thick and fast, from the Middle Eastern shuffle of "Overseas Lebanese", and Afro-jazz drum workout "Malful (Nebetia)", to the eyes-down deep house bliss of "Peru Timing (Part 2)

Review: One for the Sam Shepherd completists here; the 2015 debut Floating Points LP, Elaeina, now available in US import edition via David Byrne's Luaka Bop label. We've been waiting on this one since "J&W Beat" six years ago; there's something about Floating Points sound that instantly lends itself to full-length album immersion. It's clear he feels this way too; using the album to delve deeper into electronic deconstructions and delicate ensemble arrangements. At its most adventurous and contemporary classical "Argente" is up there with Frahm, at is dreamiest and jazz-influenced "For Marmish" is a deeply cosmic affair with disparate chords making more sense than they perhaps should. At its most traditional Floating Points we hit the finale "Perotation Six" where the brushed drums are buried under layers of sound and elements in a way that's not dissimilar to Radiohead. Well worth the wait.

Review: Baltimore house legend Karizma steps forth with his debut album as Kaytronik, which continues his long running association with UK label R2 Records. At 17 tracks long, Thee Album is somewhat conservative compared to Chris Clayton's last Karizma outing, 2013's 39-track Wall Of Sound, but canvasses the full spectrum of his widely lauded production talents. Leading out with some vintage string heavy boom bap, the Kaytronik sound unfolds to encompass classic US house, tougher DJ tools, jagged brukked up rhythms, jazzy beatdown and everything in between. In simple terms Thee Album is a true master at work. Don't Sleep!

Review: Emotional Rescue starts 2016 digging deep in to the early 80s Bristol post punk scene of Pig Pag, the Wild Bunch and the Dug Out club. A short lived project of just 3 releases, Mouth trail-blazed leftfield percussive jams in the rich vain of Liquid Liquid and ESG but in their own jazz-infused way. Centered round the cultural melting post of the St Paul's district, it's pubs, clubs and blues parties threw together young and old to the sounds of dub, funk, jazz and soul and took the spark lit by punk rock and new wave and spawned music that still resonates today. Here then, on one EP are their complete recordings, including as the title cut, their best and deepest, Voyage To The Bottom Of The Sea. Featured on a compilation LP from the legendary Y Records, its bottom heavy dub sound is augmented by female and toasted vocals riding a top a heavy stepper style riddim. This is followed by an increasingly dizzy array of percussion jams. Acab (Part 2) is all skips and trumpets, while the versions of Take Your Coat Off perfect skat vocal / tom interplay, before the finale busts out the rockabilly influences in full effect with jagged guitar, skipping hats meets double bass punk style.

Played by: Renegades Of Jazz
Review: Polar Bear, the five-piece post-jazz outfit that has released golden material for almost fifteen years, are no strangers to a reissue or to, and in fact, their original work is rather difficult to come by these days. Luckily, labels such as Leaf have no problem in repressing their best stuff, and this is why we're treated with this utter gem of an album. Peepers is certainly regarded as one of the band's best moments, and it takes their experimental jazz edge to the very limit; the sounds are freer than free, and they are certainly for those of you who like their instruments played rough and tough.

Review: Brooklyn's Bastard Jazz Recordings is one of the only NY labels left that's waving the funk flag high and mighty. Their Tempo Dreams series is now on its fourth instalment and, once again, we're presented with a full-bodied compilation of new and funky rhythms at the cutting-edge of nu jazz. Out of the eleven cuts on offer here, we're pretty much mesmerised by the whole lot, and it's safe to say that the label have truly come through with an interesting and diverse range of street-conscious music. Geotheory throws down some gospel broken beat on the opener ""Gran Truismo", FVLCRVM throw down a sort of ode to the Madlib-Dilla continuum with "Too Attached", Promo's "Blue Soda (Part 1" is a delightful house scorcher, while other favourites include the fuzzy, bass-heavy low-ends of "Variegate" by Noo Bap, and the sensual, deep waves of the placid "Wait" by Aloka.
