Review: Curiously, Anchorsong's sophomore set Ceremonial didn't appear on vinyl when it first appeared back in February 2016. Happily, Tru Thoughts has finally relented to pressure and pressed it up on wax. It remains a beguiling and beautiful set, with the Japanese producer somehow managing to create audio gold out of little more than an MPC-2500 workstation and a keyboard. While there are plenty of moments of fluid, eyes-shut beauty dotted throughout - see "Eve", "Oriental Suite", "Butterflies" and the outstanding "Monsoon" - the set also contains some crunchy beats ("Expo"), a thrillingly bass-heavy, steel-drums laden groover ("Rendezvous") and a seriously humid, tropical workout ("Last Forest").

Review: Since delivering his debut album, Chapters, on Tru Thoughts back in 2011, Anchorsong has become renowned for creating beautiful, deep and picturesque electronic music using only an MPC-2500 and a keyboard. Here, he finally delivers a follow-up, and it's every bit as beguiling as its' predecessor. While there are plenty of moments of fluid, eyes-shut beauty - see "Eve", "Oriental Suite", "Butterflies" and the outstanding "Monsoon" - the Japanese producer wisely chooses to mix things up a little. Thus, you'll also find crunchy beats ("Expo"), bass-heavy, steel drums-laden groovers ("Rendezvous"), and humid, tropical workouts ("Last Feast"). Throughout, his dedication to mood and melody remains in tact.

Review: It's some eight years since electronic soul outfit Belleruche released their debut 7" on Hippoflex. Since then, they've become one of Tru Thoughts' most reliable acts, delivering a series of albums that join the dots between nu-jazz, funk, soul and wide-eyed downtempo beats. Here, Rob Luis' label celebrates their career to date, offering a warranted Best Of... that includes remastered versions of many of their greatest moments. Highligthts are plentiful, from the string-laden soul shuffle of "3 Amp Fuse" and jazz-flecked bump of "Minor Swing", to the lo-fi soul-rock of "Stormbird" and the downtempo beats of "16 Minutes".

Review: Imagine that you're slumped atop a steep hill, watching the sun slowly rise as birds begin to tweet in the surrounding trees. It's that sensation - if not this very specific scenario - that seems to have been the inspiration behind Dawn Chorus, the third album from Joe Acheson's Hidden Orchestra project. Smothered in evocative field recordings, the album's ten tracks - each with a location-specific title - are a joyous celebration of the first flush of morning. With Acheson and friends delivering quietly positive, beautiful and picturesque pieces that join the dots between jazz, electronica and dawn-fresh acoustic music, the result is a concept album that not only justifies its overriding theme, but also sounds spectacular.

Review: Tru Thoughts' Shapes series enters its tenth year with another wide-armed creative assault. Unifying the label's many members, tying the tethers between seemingly disparate genres, label founder Luis makes sense of the many amazing records they've signed in recent times. Flexing from icy, whimsical jungle (Jonny Faith's "Zheng") to warm, bubbly dub version science (Prince Fatty and Nostalgia 77's "Medicine Chest") via squidgy synth boogie (J Felix's "101 Reasons") and the classic, gutsy soul of Alice Russell, it's yet another eclectic experience that focuses on the very best of modern, rooted music. Tru say.

Review: * Double Vinyl includes free 2cd set within it's shrinkwrapped packaging
* The second ‘Shapes’ compilation of 2010 - Tru Thoughts A&R Robert Luis treats you to a whopping 30 tracks from artists across the
label’s roster.
* The two disc collection includes more previously unreleased and exclusive cuts than ever, plus many that have only previously been
available on limited vinyl.
* Among the exclusive tracks are Quantic’s remix of Saravah Soul; Smerin’s Anti Social Club doing a great reggae version of Dr Who;
and Stonephace (feat Adrian Utley from Portishead) reworking a Micky Finn rave classic into a psychedelic jazz monster. Maddslinky
(aka Zed Bias) also makes a couple of appearances including the highly rated British future soul track “Further Away” (which was voted
in the Top 5 tunes of 2009 in Gilles Peterson’s Worldwide awards even though it’s not out yet).
* There's a reggae influenced groove from Quantic’s Flowering Inferno, Prince Fatty, Alice Russell and Lanu all getting on the Jamaican
influenced tip. More soulful/sung vocal territory includes an upfront track from Nostalgia 77’s upcoming album (due in 2011) and the
cinematic sound of the amazing Hidden Orchestra, whose debut album, ‘Night Walks’ has just been released to high acclaim and was
September’s Album of the Month on BBC Radio 1 Introducing in Scotland.
* CD Two has plenty of treats with Randomer’s remix of The Bamboos (as played to great reactions by tastemakers including the
legend Danny Krivit); At Jazz remixing Maddslinky; a couple of exclusives from Flevans and some hard beats from Benjamin One (out
of Bristol).
* Also out on double vinyl (which includes the double CD) featuring an exclusive vinyl only track from Benjamin One.
* The cover artwork features the photo, “Embedded”, by USA based artist Mark Jenkins. It’s no photoshop job, but a picture of a
sculpture he made stuffed with balls of sellotape, leaning into that wall!

Review: As the title suggests, Tru Thoughts Covers 2 is the follow up to 2009's hugely popular compilation from Rob Luis' south coast label and features another wealth of intriguing cover versions that have been released and loved as album tracks, singles or one-offs in the ensuing six years. Whilst not as weighty as the full 17 track CD edition, Tru Thoughts have still managed to slip in some real pearlers on this seven track LP version. Chief among them is the opening track, The Quantic Y Su Conjunto Los Miticos Del Ritmos take on "Ain't Nuthin but a G Thang", and Hot 8 Brass Band's parping take on "Ghost Town".

Review: 12 years after popping out their debut vinyl release, Brighton's Tru Thoughts label continues to release an impressive mix of interesting, comfortable and undeniably floor-friendly music. If you've not been paying attention of late - and you'd be forgiven for sleeping on Tru Thoughts after all this time - then this weighty double vinyl and CD trawl through recent releases is well worth a listen. There's the usual mix of downtempo, jazz, soul, hip-hop, dubstep, Afro-Cuban and broken beats, with notable forays into dancefloor territory from Dave Jones (under both his Zed Bias and Maddslinky alter-egos), Hidden Orchestra and Bristolian combo Smerins Anti Social Club. The latter's cheeky dubwise version of the Doctor Who theme (featuring Tenor Fly) is particularly good.

Review: Earlier in the autumn, Tru Thoughts announced the signing of Moonchild, a hotly tipped "neo-soul/jazz" trio from Los Angeles. Here, they deliver their first full length for the Brighton-based label, following two hard to find, self-released sets. Please Rewind is a decidedly rich, sumptuous and comforting affair, with Amber Navran's Jill Scott-like vocals providing a sweet, intoxicating focal point. These are frequently combined with hazy horns, twinkling electric piano lines, simmering strings and head-nodding, hip-hop soul beats. The result is a set of smoldering songs that recall the Halcyon days of neo-soul in the early 2000s.

Review: Nostalgia 77 delivers his sixth artist album and, like his previous works, it's instantly engaging. Taking a more contemplative route, it's a whole new side to the accomplished musician. Opening charm comes by way of the sun-kissed folk numbers "What Do You Know" and "Crescent City", both of which set a somewhat hippy motif throughout. Elsewhere we're instantly seduced by the reggae-tinged soul of "Don't Run", the smoky horn fusion of "Medicine Chest" and the raw naked soul of "One". Once again Nostalgia 77 has delivered something truly special. Many may argue this is his best album to date.

Review: Will "Quantic" Holland has enjoyed a long love affair with the music of Colombia, establishing various live acts that pay tribute to the steamy, sweat-soaked sounds of the South American nation. His latest project sees him join forces with singer/songwriter India Gongora to deliver a set inspired by the "Pacific music" variant of Colombian dance culture. The result is a set of songs that sound distinctively Colombian, with tropical guitars, indigenous instrumentation and Gongora's wonderfully laidback vocals being joined by rhythms, bassline and electronics that bring a traditional style bang up to date. The double vinyl set also includes a few forays into more Caribbean territory, including the brilliant "Dub Del Pacifico (Version)".

Review: Dub revisionist Wrongtom has an impressive track record when it comes to dub-wise collaborations. For the latest in his ongoing Meets... series, he's joined forces with veteran UK mic man the Ragga Twins, offering up a swathe of new cuts featuring their distinctive, all-action Jamaican mic chatter. Predictably, it's a weighty and hugely entertaining set that doffs a cap to the duo's 1980s dancehall roots whilst retaining the reverb and echo-laden dub sound that the producer is renowned for. Amongst the 14 tracks you'll find a swathe of club-ready treats, from the Spaghetti Western horns and rolling riddims of "Woah!" and digi-dub wobble of "Hard Drugs" (an anti-narcotics warning), to the upbeat strut of closer "Follow Fashion".
