Notturno Italiano Reworks
Notturno Italiano Reworks (12" in die-cut sleeve)
Cat: MT 19006. Rel: 23 Sep 20
  1. Notturno Italiano (Daniel Maunick & Alex Malheiros vocal) (5:55)
  2. Notturno Italiano (Daniel Maunick & Alex Malheiros instrumental) (5:55)
  3. Notturno Italiano (Ron Trent dub remix) (7:28)
Review: Mario Acquaviva's 1983 jam 'Notturno Italiano' is a hugely sought after Italian boogie gem. Mother Tongue have dug it out the archives and enlisted some key names to offer up reworks and reconstructions, with Azymuth's Alex Malheiros and Daniel Maunick going first. They offer vocal and instrumental versions with life-affirming jazz Rhodes and cool, seductive rhythm sections that take you into the cosmos. Eternal deep house hero Ron Trent then does his escapist and spiritual thing on a lush and star-gazing dub that transcends genre. All three of these are irresistible.

  7. Dig Deep (9:46)
Review: Wairunga is a Kiwi beauty spot that's long been one of the favoured locations for Fat Freddy's Drop to kick back between tours and recording sessions. It's fitting then that the long-serving New Zealand collective have named their new album in its honour. The set itself showcases the band at their very best, delivering their usual attractive fusions of dub, reggae and soul, in which Joe Dukie's effortlessly soulful vocals rise above warming bass, heady electronics, crisp guitars and hazy horns. It's diverse enough to fend off any accusations that they're resting on their laurels, but also familiar enough to please the band's vast army of fans. In other words, it's a Fat Freddy's Drop album, and a rather good one at that.

Review: A new album from Sam Shepherd AKA Floating Points is always cause for celebration, but even by his standards "Crush" is rather special. Largely eschewing the ambient jazz soundscape shuffle of 2017's "Reflections - Mojave Desert", it sees the Shepherd showcase his musical dexterity in stunning fashion via cuts that wrap shimmering neo-classical strings around what sound like modular electronics and rhythms that variously touch on broken beat, off-kilter experimental D&B and Autechre-style IDM. Of course there are ambient and experimental soundscapes showcased, but it's the fact that the album contains a swathe of formidably dancefloor-focused cuts in the style that first made him standout that pleases us most. Highlights include recent single "LesAlpx", the dreamy "Anasickmodular" and the "People's Potential" style deep house intricacy of "Last Bloom".

Review: Released back in 2003, Rounds was the third LP from Kieran Hebden as Four Tet and perhaps the first long player that widely established him as a pioneering voice within electronic music. Though it doesn't feel like a decade since it was released, Domino celebrate the album's tenth anniversary in requisite fashion here, reissuing it in double LP format and slipping in a CD of Four Tet performing live in Copenhagen in 2004. Listening back now, it's easy to understand why Rounds is viewed as an early classic in the Four Tet canon, transferring his love for free jazz records to a beat template that's more palatable on the ear (Fact pickers might want to know that Hebden recently revealed to Pitchfork the LP was made entirely from samples) "She Moves She" still sounds absolutely haunting too!

Review: Is there a more genuinely eclectic producer than Kalbata operating right now? We certainly can't think of one. Over the last decade and a half he's turned his hand to everything from dub, techno, dubstep and electro to Balearic beats, downtempo grooves and inspired musical fusions that simply cannot be categorized. His latest excursion - made in cahoots with five-piece Israeli band Tigris -falls into the latter category, offering up a brilliant blend of African and Caribbean rhythms, Turkish psych-funk organ solos, off-kilter electronics, wavy ambient chords and glistening guitars. It's hard to accurately describe but brilliantly produced and hugely entertaining. Don't sleep on this one!

  2. Phantazia (Laroye rework) (7:59)
Review: French producer Laroye has s super slick production style that is showcased across this third volume of works on the If It Ain't Jazz label. Gilles Peterson has already approved the tunes here and for good reason: the a-side edit of 'Leaving This Planet' is an audacious one with powerful and modern drums layered in below the cosmic synth work and deeply buried vocal. Extra synths and new bass recorded by Aroop Roy finishes it in style. The b-side is 'Phantazia,' a more baseman styled disco jam with low sling bass and infectious loops that make you move, all finished off this time with a killer jazz-funk groove.

Review: Dance music's most famous tea lover and cartoonist Mr Scruff truly broke through with his 1999 album "Keep It Unreal". 20 years on, it is still a fine example of sample mastery and musical playfulness with tracks about marine life, electro swing cuts built on snippets of Moondog material and plenty of weird and wonderful downbeat, breakbeat and broken beat gems in between. Our picks: "Midnight Feast" which recalls the intimate late night sounds of Portishead, rich and sweet "Honeydew" as it should be given the title and "Cheeky" - a timeless bit of deep house from the Manchester man. If only we all aged as well as this album.

  2. Rude (4:56)
  3. Aube Session (5:18)
  4. 1F (6:20)
  5. Show Me (7:06)
Review: Noiro is clearly an artist with a lot of ideas and a desire to avoid conformity. SHAHRZAD, the producer's third EP of 2021 following outings on Chat Noir Tools and MINDHELMET, is an excellent collection of cuts, none of which sit neatly in any one style or sub-genre. Opener 'Kata Pulse', for example, adds Wurlitzer style organ slabs, scratched-in rap vocal samples and intergalactic, techno style electronics to skittish D&B beats and jazz-funk bass, while 'Aube Session' sounds like Rephlex-esque "brain-dance" mixed with hip-house. There are similarly entertaining examples of this kind of melodious, retro-futurist fusion elsewhere across the EP, including the New Jersey deep house goes psychedelic techno eccentricity of 'Show Me'.

Review: After debuting with their killer self-titled album back in 2015, Nubiyan Twist are back in full force with this incredible album on Strut. This is broken beat in full widescreen technicolour, with the hefty size of the band and their incredible chops whipping up all kinds of soul stirring patterns and shapes. There's a strong list of guests too, from Nick Richards to Pilo Adami, and not least the legendary ethio-jazz pioneer Mulatu Astatke. From spiky futuristic workouts to delicate bossa inspired trips and drawing on a rich tapestry of cultural influences, this album bursts with life at every turn.

Review: The latest drop on Glenn Underground's Strictly Jazz Unit features Sandman & Riverside delivering a sumptuous strain of deep house. 'Your Eyes' is impossibly warm and soulful, basking in honey-coated Rhodes and softly processed vocals. As much as the pristine original, the emphasis is also on the remixes on this package. First up is Atlanta master Kai Alce, whose NDATL mix brings a sharper club focus to the track replete with dusky trumpet and choice chord hooks. Then Underground himself steps up on the flip with vocal and instrumental takes on the original that strike a fine balance between the mellow musicality and a sturdy dancefloor snap.

Review: Some 30 years after rising to prominence via a now legendary NYC radio show, veteran hip-hop DJs Stretch Armstrong and Bobbito Garcia have finally made a debut album. It sees them join forces with specially created nine-piece combo The M19s Band to serve up fresh covers of a range of well-known and obscure "dance floor bangers" (as the accompanying press release puts it). There are some superb interpretations, with the Police's dub disco jam "Voices Inside My Head" becoming a sweet soul-jazz treat, the Clash's "Magnificent Dance" reborn as a Latin jazz number (complete with Rich Medina spoken word vocal) and Womack & Womack's "Baby I'm Scared of You" a seductive, shuffling Afro-Cuban jazz standard. In a word: brilliant.

Review: Since first breaking through in 2018, Emma-Jean Thackray has proved to be one of the most versatile, adventurous and imaginative artists on the contemporary British jazz underground - a trumpeter, composer, vocalist and bandleader whose spiritually-minded music refuses to settle on one groove, style or sound. Yellow, her debut solo album, continues this trend, combining classic jazz and jazz-funk instrumentation with subtle electronics, glassy-eyed vocal and sweeping strings. Throw in numerous rhythmic and stylistic nods to broken beat, jazz-house, P-funk, psychedelia and jazz fusion, and you have one of the most singularly stunning musical statements of 2021 so far. In a word: incredible.

Review: Toshio Matsuura's Toshio Matsuura Group finally unveils its much anticipated new tune 'Pina' which has never before been put out. It was recorded in London while the band worked on their 2018 album Loveplaydance so has a similar sound. It is a free form jazz style which is led by conversational trumpet and underpinned by restless broken beats. On the flip is a remix by Nikitch & Kuna Maze, a dup that originally hail from France but who are currently working in Belgium. It's a slick rework ready for dancing action.
