Al Kent is the kind of experienced producer with a midas touch who can pull off the single-track, single-sided 12" and not leave anyone doubting the value of the wax. On this occasion the Million Dollar Disco man is getting busy with 'Rain', working an iconic, evergreen vocal performance over a beautifully extended, joyous and passionate eight minutes of soul stirring disco perfection. This is party music at its most fierce and flamboyant, not to mention with the kind of illustrious musicality other genres just can't touch.

Has it really been five years since Migration? Time has flown, but the evergreen appeal of Bonobo holds true as he lands back on his spiritual home of Ninja Tune with another hotly anticipated opus. Fragments finds Simon Green digging deep, having forced himself to work outside of his usual tour-centric comfort zone during the global shutdown and developing a lot of new material in the isolation of the Californian desert. While that air of solitude formed a foundation for the album, he then folded in ample collaborations from Miguel Atwood-Ferguson, Jordan Rakei, O'Flynn, Joji and Kadhja Bonet, resulting in a stirring soul soup of richly developed, danceable rhythms and patient musicality with that unmistakable Bonobo touch.

'No Beauty In The World' is a reflection of how in a world so cruel we can find beauty, with its music bouncing between beautiful ambience and piano loops, modular synth melodies to darker textural and feedback driven drones. Unlike other wounds records where the fluidity of the entire album tells a story, 'No Beauty In The World' explore various sonic possibilities and territories. This is a culmination of over 2 years of writing and recording, constantly driven by the uncertainty and darkness in the world that we live in. Despite it all, the sonic arc of the album gives us something to hope for, maybe there is beauty in the end. The record was engineered and mixed by Diogo Strausz (Far Out Recordings) in France and mastered (digital and vinyl) by Lawrence English (Room40). The record features collaborations from guitarist Carlos Ferreira and drummer / synthesist Phillip Stosberg.

Mr K - Mr K Edits: Prophecy
12"
$11.35
For this entry in the ever-expanding series from the master Danny Krivit, we turn to two productions from the legendary Lamont Dozier. Both songs are artfully rearranged by Mr. K and appear here on 12-inch vinyl for the first time. Margie Joseph was a powerful soul singer from the deep South who in her younger days was compared favorably to Aretha Franklin. But by the time of this recording in 1976, Joseph had moved on from the Southern soul sound and was looking for something new. She found it in collaboration with Lamont Dozier (who would actually go on to produce Aretha the following year). Dozier's song "Prophecy" was recorded at least three times, with Betty Everett doing it in '77 and Dozier himself using it as the title track for a planned 1975 solo album that was unfortunately never released. It's Margie Joseph's energetic version that made the song a proto-disco dance floor classic however, getting heavy spins on the U.K. modern soul scene and at the Houston St. incarnation of Nicky Siano's infamous 'Gallery'. "Prophecy" has also long been a Danny Krivit favorite, appearing on his 2001 compilation Grassroots. Mr. K turns in a new, definitive mix of the song, complete with a never heard before acapella intro and outro section. The writing on the wall says this one is still a winner! Going back just a couple years prior to "Prophecy" is our flip side, "I'm Just Being Myself." This time we have an even more high profile female singer who again was looking for a new sound. In the case of Dionne Warwick, she and her longtime collaborators Hal David and Burt Bacharach had split acrimoniously not long before, and her new label Warner Brothers, seeking a fresh twist for her voice, teamed her with the celebrated Holland-Dozier-Holland team. Lamont Dozier and the Holland brothers were of course responsible for numerous Motown smashes, but by the early '70s Berry Gordy had moved operations west to L.A. and H-D-H struck out on their own, choosing to remain in Detroit. "I'm Just Being Myself" was recorded at the team's studio there, with a cast of Motown veterans fleshing out the magnificent Holland-Dozier composition. Mr. K's edit squeezes the most out of the underlying groove, avoiding the chorus in favor of prominent percussion, dramatic strings, and soaring flute. Warwick herself doesn't make an entrance until five minutes into this epic rearrangement, cooly riding the building instrumental tension. A long-time standard in Krivit's bag, this edit makes its full length appearance on wax for the first time.

Al Tone Edits - Vol 12
7"
$12.48
Edit king Al Tones is back on his own label with two more of his superb studio concoctions. This series has been rolling strong since 2012 and like all of the previous eighth instalments the 12th is a doozy. The a-side 'All The Time' is a trumpet lead bit of high speed metropolitan funk with plenty of jazzy licks and sliding hi hats that seduce you as the grooves unfold. Things take a deeper, slower turnoff the flip for 'Run It.' This one has a more steamy sax line taking charge over chunkier beats and nice rich Rhodes chords. File under classy party starters.

Hypernatural - Hypernatural
LP
$20.43
Dan Whitford, Mirko Vogel and Mike Gamwell make up the ambient electronica trio Hypernatural, who present their debut LP here on limited vinyl. By any interpretation - from 'Spirit Walk' to 'Valley' - this self titled bit is a mini-album of sultry, monsoon-season builders, drawing on two trips the group made to the Scottish coast and highlands respectively - intentionally traversing its wilderness to find inspiration. The stark beauty of Scotland's pines and valleys seems to coalesce with the promise of future tech (the group mention 5G as an inspiration), as a rich pastoral picture, reminiscent of the work of Rival Consoles or Bonobo, is painted with cleanly rounded depth.

Buzz Compass - Live With You
LP
$22.14
Hailing from St Petersburg and steeped in the language of house music, Buzz Compass has been strangely quiet for a while after a string of excellent records around 2013 on Glenview Records. Now Inhale Exhale have tapped him up for a trip through all-new material which shows how deep Compass' crates run. There's samples a-plenty, all revolving around the dusty, looped-up dimension of modern deep house - Max Graef and Dam Swindle fans take note. But it's not simple edit fodder either - there's serious musical chops in these arrangements, adding up to 10 absolute winners presented back to back on one disc for your listening pleasure.

Also known as Belizian Voodoo Priest, Miggedy and Steve Maestro, the somewhat mysterious Mortimer Snerd III makes a first appearance with this cool slab of single-sided wax. We're talking sample-focused house heaters here, with lead track 'Here I Come' being especially feisty. Riding an old funk loop and jacking it up with a rabble-rousing stomp, it's a simple but utterly effective damager to get people pushing themselves harder. 'The Chi' is a deeper affair which scatters its source material across a moody, bass-heavy arrangement for those teasing moments in the mid-section of a set.
