Devika (Goddess)
Devika (Goddess) (white vinyl 7")
Cat: DFLSCR 0002 WHITE. Rel: 01 Nov 21
  1. Devika (Goddess) (4:20)
  2. Expansions (4:07)
Review: Los Angeles' Alex Santos Orchestra previously paid tribute to classic jazz-funk imprint Red Clay Records via a 45 featuring covers of two classic cuts. On this follow-up, they've turned their attention to another similarly lauded label, Flying Dutchman Records, offering their interpretations of two tracks associated with one of the imprint's most-loved artists, Lonnie Liston Smith. On the A-side they handle 'Devika (Goddess)', a David Hubbard composition that they re-frame as an atmospheric, bass guitar-led slab of laidback, head-nodding jazz funk full of warming electric piano, flanged funk guitars and hazy horns. Arguably even better is their party-starting take on Liston-Smith's most celebrated tune, 'Expansions', whose familiar bassline and infectious groove never fails to get dancefloors moving.

  1. Green Smoke (4:55)
  2. Thunder Perfect (5:15)
Review: The Cromagnon Band's debut 7" back in 2019 was a sell-out and critically acclaimed success. They make a welcome return here with another natural fusion of all of the tastes and styles of the individual band members. They have said before they make music in a reverse engineering fashion after years honing their skills producing beats on MPCs before moving to real instruments. They've already featured on compilations from Andy Votel and Doug Shipton's Finder Keepers label and these two nuggets are likely to become crate-digging delights of the future. 'Green Smoke' is a tumble of funky drums and jazzy keys that never let up and 'Thunder Perfect' is a deeper, more spacious approach to funk.

Review: Following the success of her debut album Man Made this year, here's a reissue of London artist Aria Wells aka Greentea Peng's Rising EP from back in 2019 on Different. She worked with different producers on this one such as Fred Cox, Kiko, Samo and Earbuds who lent their various talents. Peng's soothing vocal delivery is accompanied perfectly by hypnotic polyrhythms on songs like 'Risin', the blunted urban blues of 'Inna City', and the broken beat neo-soul of 'Liberation' being just some highlights on this terrific EP.

  5. Channel & Transmission (2:00)
Review: REPRESS ALERT!: For his first outing of 2020, Kyle Hall returns to the label he founded last year, Forget The Clock, with a suitably strong five-track missive. Check first languid opener "Shark", a splash around in crystal clear waters where simmering chords, luscious pads and glassy-eyed melodic motifs stretch out over bubbly, Latin-tinged drum machine beats and a dubby bassline. Hall makes bolder strides towards the dancefloor on lo-fi house cut "Vexed", before doffing a cap to Larry Heard and Ron Trent on the gorgeous deep house positivity of "Distant". Elsewhere, "Slam Deep" joins the dots between Steve Poindexter and the 2000 Black style of jazzy broken beat, while "Channel & Transmission" is a skewed skip through wonky deep house/jazz-funk fusion.

Review: Brainfeeder serves up this new 12" from Hiatus Kaiyote which finds them diving ever deeper into their own idiosyncratic world of jazzy electronics and expansive grooves. The Australian funk outfit has been nominated twice for a Grammy and their Mood Valiant album was critically acclaimed by all. The pick of this limited green vinyl is the title track 'Canopic Jar' with its lurching beats, twisted guitars and stained lead vocal. It comes as an instrumental and an Capella while the opener 'Journey To The Crystal Tomb' is a short but sweet passage of haunting ambient.

Cat: FCDR 004. Rel: 22 Nov 21
  1. Lakim - "I'm Rick James Bitch" (3:05)
  2. Boombaptist - "Jerry Mane" (2:42)
Review: Rakim and Boombaptist join forces for this turbo-charged cut and paste job. The two short but sweet tracks on this little 7" are packed with eons of hip hop and b-boy history, all chopped up, spliced and diced into fragments that you will have plenty of fun pulling apart. First up is 'I'm Rick James Bitch'with planning bass, crisp boom bap drums and iconic vocal samples the on the flip is 'Jerry Mane' which is slightly less raw and a little more soulful and outward looking. Both are big tools for big reactions on the floor.

  2. Arcadian Dream (5:38)
  3. New Life (5:50)
  4. A Palm In The Closet (5:03)
  5. Trouble In Paradise (3:10)
Review: Applied Arts party promoter and Cashmere Radio co-founder Ed Longo has spent much of the last 12 months criss-crossing Europe for recording sessions with a wide array of jazz-leaning musicians. The result is "The Other Fantasy", a debut mini-album that's said to be, "conceptualized around the quest for otherness in the schizophrenia of the digital age". Regardless of the concept, the resultant music is rarely less than magical, with Longo and his collaborators effortlessly joining the dots between jazz-funk, fusion, boogie and '80s soul. Highlights are plentiful, from the Dayton style early '80s jazz-funk perfection of "Love On The Line" and drowsy new age ambient/jazz fusion of "Arcadian Dream", to the synthesizer-powered '80s smoothness of "A Palm In The Closet" and horizontal bliss of "Trouble In Paradise".

Moonscape Waltz
Moonscape Waltz (7" limited to 300 copies)
Cat: FNR 171. Rel: 25 Oct 21
  1. Moonscape Waltz (3:26)
  2. Few Layers For Smith (4:02)
Review: Musical polymath Misha Paniflov is Estonia's answer to Bruno 'Patchworks' Hovart - a hugely talented multi-instrumentalist and producer whose steady stream of solo and collaborative releases are never less than superb. Here he reassembles his 'Sound Combo' quartet for two workouts that blur the boundaries between jazz, jazz-funk and cinematic soul. A-side 'Moonscape Waltz' is rather lovely, with alternately sparkling and fuzzy guitar solos and twinkling electric piano sounds gently surfing a swelling waltz rhythm. It comes backed with a suitably jaunty and sun-kissed B-side, 'Few Layers For Smith', where restless electric piano motifs, jazzy drums and organ chords are joined by glorious saxophone flourishes on a slow build towards a gorgeous climax.

Review: RECCOMMENDED
Trying to find any information on Mneme is pretty difficult. What we can say, though, is that this almost definitely not a company with a "vision to become a world leader in AI powered healthcare solutions, improving lives and transforming the future of our society." Thank god. Not that we don't wish the firm we stumbled across on Facebook all the best in its efforts to get there.

Instead, Mneme the electronic artist name (or act?) belongs in a far less competitive place. Somewhere where warm pads, vacuum packed beats, and melodic flourishes can thrive together, creating a soundscape that's packed with inviting ambient moods, and feels at once sci-fi futuristic and yet strangely retro in flavour. We've been here before, and yet it's also hugely original stuff that we can't not recommend.

Volkswagenesque (7" limited to 300 copies)
Cat: FNR 172. Rel: 25 Oct 21
  1. Volkswagenesque (4:07)
  2. Miles Away (2:53)
Review: Given that both have eclectic musical tastes and play a multitude of instruments, it makes perfect sense that Misha Paniflov and Shawn Lee have ended up working together on a handful of seven-inch singles. 'Volkswagenesque', the opening gambit from the pair's latest "45", is another strong sonic statement. It boasts the sun-kissed warmth and laidback vibe heard on many of Lee's productions, with the duo wrapping glistening guitars, gravelly funk-rock solos, spacey synths and warming bass around a languid, percussion-rich rhythm track. You'll find more weighty, beautifully played percussion on flipside 'Miles Away', a more low-slung and dancefloor-ready affair that features some excellent electric piano playing from Lee.

Cat: FNR 173. Rel: 25 Oct 21
  1. Sigmund Jahn Bossa (2:52)
  2. Aquaria (2:27)
Review: Fresh from dropping another essential seven-inch with his regular Sound Combo band, Misha Paniflov has joined forces with fellow multi-instrumentalist Shawn Lee for a string of collaborative singles. This "45" sports two genuinely impressive cuts, each full to bursting with quality live instrumentation. It opens with 'Sigmund Jahn Bossa', a superb fusion of late 1960s library jazz (think Roy Budd's score for Get Carter and you're in the right ballpark), bustling bossa-nova and spiralling psych-funk. Over on the flip the pair continue to deliver lounge, influenced, tongue-in-cheek thrills via the cheap, Sideman drum machine rhythms, tumbling guitars, elongated Hammond organ chords and hazy backing vocals of 'Aquaria'.

In The Fast Lane
Cat: VLM 004. Rel: 22 Nov 21
  1. Jean-Luc Ponty - "In The Fast Lane" (4:09)
  2. Opolopo - "In The Fast Lane" (6:13)
Review: French jazz-funk experimentalist Jean-Luc Ponty was already a quarter of a century into his career when he recorded 'In The Fast Lane', a genuinely brilliant synth-heavy workout that added trademark violin refrains to a staccato drum machine rhythm and bold, bubbly waves of synthesizer. The record became something of an anthem in the techno clubs of Detroit on its 1989 release, while also inspiring jazz-dancers at Gilles Peterson's legendary Dingwalls sessions. Here the track gets a deserved re-release as a 12" single, with extensive sleeve notes courtesy of the man himself. This time round, there's also an inspired cover version from Opolopo, who re-creates Ponty's famous synthesizer riffs, jams out colourful new solos and adds them all to a non-stop house beat that's as infectious as they come. Simply superb.

Cat: GOND 121003RP. Rel: 28 Oct 21
  1. Hania Rani - "Nest" (Portico Quartet remix) (3:37)
  2. Portico Quartet - "With Beside Against" (Hania Rani remix) (4:12)
Review: Sometimes the simplest ideas are those that get the greatest results. This split 12" from East London cinematic jazz combo Portico Quartet and Polish pianist Hania Rani is a fine example. The two artists exchanged tracks, with the resulting reworks appearing on this superb seven-inch. The Portico Quartet's version of Rani's 'Nest' is simply superb: a dreamy, otherworldly drift through sunrise-ready jazz in which waves of undulating analogue synthesizer sounds, immersive chords and flotation tank vocal samples flutter attractively on a breeze of languid jazz drums. Rani's interpretation of Portico Quartet's 'With, Beside, Against' is arguably even more impressive. Sparse and minimalistic, it sees her add twinkling piano motifs and her own evocative vocals to a slowly unfurling, widescreen jazz workout. In a word: stunning.

  2. I Won't Fade Away (instrumental) (3:48)
Review: Man like Quantic aka Will Holland, a real musicologist, world music maestro and bandleader, revisits one of his old tracks following a slew of other producers doing the same. That track is 'Pushin On' and here he takes its timeless Alice Russell vocal and drops it into a new beat. It's one that is swung with plenty of UKG references and is finished off with nice soft melodies up top. Add in a bit of tape hiss and some broken beats and you have an anthem in the making. Flip it over for a paired back instrumental. Either of these will be huge in the club, so do not sleep.

  4. Your Eyes (GU bonus instrumental) (7:48)
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.

  1. For My People (5:04)
  2. Let's Dance (6:38)
  3. Abstract Jazz (4:53)
  4. The Detroit Track (5:04)
Review: The assumption of quality that comes with Patrice Scott records is never let down, and so it goes on this latest refined transmission from his Sistrum label. 'For My People' is a sharp and snappy jam with some of the warmest bass you're likely to hear all year, but it's also smoothed out by mellow keys that provide the starry-eyed magic so intrinsic to Scott's sound. 'Let's Dance' is equally chill, albeit with a nagging swing you won't be able to resist bopping to, whether on the floor or elsewhere in your world. 'Abstract Jazz' offers up something a little more playful as Scott lets the beats come in a little crooked and the keys go darting off into intriguing harmonic configurations, but it's still sophisticated and elegant at its core. 'The Detroit Track' rounds the EP off with another sweet bumper which speaks to Scott's legacy as much as the city he hails from.

Review: Post-punk funkateers A Certain Ratio have always enjoyed an open relationship with dance music culture, so it seems fitting that they'd be responsible for one of the most interesting and entertaining remix albums of 2021. Loco Remezclada sees a varied ensemble rework cuts from their recent history, with predictably impressive - and eclectic - results. Of course, there's plenty of breathless post-punk dancefloor fusion on display - see Mr Dan's superb rewire of 'Down & Dirty' and 808 State man Graham Massey's low-slung take on 'Supafreak' - but also a swathe of more revelatory reworks. These include LoneLady mixing P-funk and boogie on her mix of 'Bouncy Bouncy', Skream turning 'Always In Love' into a powerpop stomper and Number re-imagining 'Taxi Guy' as a kind of 21st century take on Tony Allen/Fela Kuti style Afrobeat.

Review: Arriving five years after their previous album, IV, Talk Memory sees Badbadnotgood pitch up on XL Recordings for the first time with what could be their most potent full-length yet. It's certainly their most expansive, adventurous and cinematic set so far, both in musical scope (it includes more nods towards post-rock and jazz-rock, for example) and sound (multiple tracks feature contribitions from Brazilian string arranger Arthur Verocai). It's a dazzling album all told, with the band's choice of improvisational composition techniques and an impressive guest list (Laraaju, Karriem Roggins, Terrace Martin and Brandee Younder all appear) resulting in a string of epic, life-affirming compositions. Picking highlights is tough, but we'd suggest checking slow burn, constantly building epic 'Signal to the Noise' and the buzzing, psychedelic jazz-rock of 'Beside April'.

Review: While writing this album, Dan Berkson was based in London, and the city's vibrant jazz and broken beat scene was been a clear influenced on the music he made in that time. Dialogues is an accomplished artistic statement filled with virtuosos musicianship, vibrant drums and jazz chords that brim with life. The grooves are all rooted in jazz with elements of the rootsy blues and ragtime of his youth, cool 60s modernism and 70s funk fusions. Magical and mystifying in equal measure, this an immediately timeless record from a contemporary great.

Review: Polish quartet Bloto finally unveil their highly anticipated album on the superb Astigmatic Records. This red hot band come on hot from the off and combine heavy instrumentals, hip hop inspired drums, manic keys work and hugely expressive sax solos into insane jazz grooves and improvised workouts. It's a dense, challenging sound but one that reveals more with each and every listen and will surely appeal to jazz fans from across the ages. Thankfully, there is the odd moment to breath such as the creepy electronics and subversive sounds of 'Prostactwo' and dark, late night steppers like 'Autentyzm.' Cool cover art, too.

Review: Citrus Sun is a side project from Incognito member Bluey and this is the band's fourth full length. It is a suer fun, high speed and playful take on the famous Brit-funk sound he fomented with his main project. "This band is our getaway," he says, "our live-for-the-moment statement", and it is one you will surely stand by this winter and beyond. Bluey lines up next to keyboard player Matt Cooper, bassist Francis Hylton, guitarist Francisco Sales and drummer Francesco Mendolia when playpen with Citrus Sun and their skies are what make this such a vibrant and vital record.

Review: Conclave's self-titled debut is also the first album to be put out by Love Injection Records. The band is the work of multi-instrumentalist Cesar Toribio and features a rotating assembly of musicians including Scott Scribner, Gabo Lugo, Maria Padilla, Scott Bevins, Aquiles Navarro, and Sharin Toribio. The album is an in depth look at claves, which are "a unifying rhythm that holds the key to unlock dances both ancestral and contemporary." The whole thing glows with lush melody, Latin wind sounds and a shuffling, samba-tinged groover that is simply irresistible. 'All That I Need' (feat Sharin) at the heart of the record is a particular standout.
