Mosaic
Mosaic (heavyweight vinyl 12")
Cat: ALBF 1204. Rel: 17 Oct 18
Broken Beat/Nu Jazz
  1. Mosaic
  2. Transcoso
  3. Mariposa (6:44)
Review: Earlier in the year, we were full of praise for "Murmuration", the long-awaited debut album from James O'Keefe and Dave Koor's Expansions project. Famously, that album was recorded in just three days, with the duo and their musical collaborators managing to deliver a polished set despite its spontaneous, freeform roots. We're not sure if the three cuts on this follow-up EP were recorded in a similar manner, but they're certainly pleasingly loose, languid and live sounding. Check the title track "Mosaic", where impeccable jazz-funk electric piano solos ride jaunty bass and swinging live drum breaks, before tucking into the cascading jazz guitar solos, hushed drums and spacey chords of "Transcoso". Over on side B, "Mariposa" sits somewhere between the two A-side cuts, with spacey, stretched-out synth solos catching the ear.

Murmuration
Cat: ALBFLP 02. Rel: 07 Mar 18
Broken Beat/Nu Jazz
  1. Breakthrough (7:58)
  2. Pocket 5 (3:51)
  3. Cannonball (6:51)
  4. Ivory Mountain (5:58)
  5. Dragonfly (5:05)
  6. Miles Away (8:30)
Review: Having previously impressed with a trio of singles - particularly 2013 debut "Lavender" - hopes are naturally high for this first full-length from the James O'Keefe and Dave Koor-helmed Expansions project. Predictably, they deliver in spades, serving up a set whose fluid spontaneity and meandering solos owe much to the fact that the album was recorded in just three days. There's plenty of spacey jazz-funk and fusion fun to be found throughout, from the intergalactic synth solos of "Pocket 5" and dancefloor-burning heat of "Ivory Mountain", to the daydreaming Fender Rhodes motifs and fizzing drums of killer closer "Miles Away". Happily, fine recent single "Breakthrough" also makes an appearance.

Modifications: Set 3
Cat: ALBF 1205. Rel: 14 Nov 18
Broken Beat/Nu Jazz
  1. Blame's On You Bruv (6:03)
  2. Glass Army (8:08)
  3. Modification 25 (The Modified Man Rap) (3:24)
  4. Hear Me Calling (4:38)
  5. Sergio Arpeggio (8:07)
  6. Love Rising From The Dark Abyss Of Sorrow (4:49)
Review: Since launching the Modified Man project in 2016, Adam Scrimshire and Dave Koor have yet to put a foot wrong. The genius of their collaborative releases is their ability to combine loose-limbed instrumental improvisations with dusty samples, cleverly manipulated beats and an acute sense of atmosphere. This third volume in the series rolls along in a similar way, flitting between skewed, straight-to-tape boogie-house ("Blame's On You Bruv"), solo-laden deep house dreaminess ("Glass Army"), intergalactic jazz-funk/broken beat fusion ("Here Me Calling"), smooth and loved-up grooves (the amusingly titled "Sergio Arpeggio") and becalmed, ultra-deep downtempo beats ("Love Rising From The Dark Abyss of Sorrow").

  3. Prints On The Heath (2:50)
  4. Croydon Rooftop Cafe Culture (5:10)
  5. Accidental Return (6:29)
  6. Thorns (4:59)
Review: Two years on from the release of Modifications: Set 1, Adam Scrimshire and Dave Koor join forces once more as Modified Man. This second "Set" explores similar sonic territory to its predecessor, with the duo delivering jaunty, semi-improvised cuts that mix Herbie Hancock style jazz-funk synthesizer work and sparkling, Dam Funk style sounds with beats and basslines that variously draw inspiration from dusty, sample-rich deep house, L.A experimental hip-hop, dub, broken beat (the ace "Croydon Rooftop Cafe Culture") and intergalactic space jazz (starburst closer "Thorns"). It takes a few listens to really get to grips with all of the duo's musical intricacies, but it's definitely worth the effort.

Next To Nothing

  9. Joyfulness (feat Alexa Harley) (3:34)
  10. Circle (3:22)
  11. 2 Minute Switch (feat Pie Eye Collective) (3:05)
  12. Wall Street (feat Andrew Ashong) (3:19)
  13. Communication Control (3:06)
Review: London beat-maker Hector Plimmer has a wide palette of influences - think off-kilter hip-hop grooves of Flying Lotus, contemporary jazz, British bass music, the soul-fired deep house of Theo Parrish and the jazz-funk influenced skip of broken beat - yet the music he makes is never cluttered, confused or needlessly eclectic. In fact, as this second album proves, he has a clear vision. Deep, soulful, warm and attractive, the set's 13 tracks are universally superb and come laden with vocals from a high-grade cast-list of guests including Andrew Ashong, Emma-Jean Thackray, Ella May and the Pie Eye Collective. It's one of those albums that will almost certainly be slept on, so do yourself a favour and don't let it pass you by.

Sunshine Remix
Cat: ALBF 1202. Rel: 07 Feb 18
Broken Beat/Nu Jazz
  1. Sunshine (Reginald Omas Mamode IV remix) (4:49)
  2. Bossa B (Glenn Astro remix) (4:47)
  3. Bossa B (Deoke remix) (7:04)
  4. Kalimba 2 (Mr Beatnick remix) (3:28)
Review: Born and raised in South London, Hector Plimmer is a designer, producer and DJ, who has been making some considerable waves in recent times. Beginning with an appearance on 2011's Brownswood Bubblers compilation, Hector proved his talent when he was selected as the winner of the PRS Steve Reid InNOVAtion Award. Originally released in early 2017, his Sunshine LP now gets a series of hot remixes. Some blunted urban hip-hop flavour on Reginald Omas Mamode IV's remix of "Sunshine", that dusty MPC deep house sound of Berlin courtesy of their city's finest Glenn Astro, on his remix of "Bossa" while Mr Beatnick turns in an utterly hypnotic remix of "Kalimba 2".
