Broken Beat/Nu Jazz
  1. The World (4:23)
  2. Invisible Joy (2:42)
Review: Back Pluwatsch, or simply Bajka, is an Indian-born, South-African raised singer with diverse catalogue of music, and an equally compelling set of vocal chords. Her voice was first picked up by London's Jazzman circa 2005, and has travelled across other like like Ubiquity, Raw Tapes, and even on NYC house-techno conglomerate, Ibadan. Philophon feels like a much more natural place for her music to prosper on, a label that's been on our radar since day one, and always comes heavily recommended. "The World" is a true pearl of a song, charged and catapulted into the ether by a deep, raw percussive sway and, of course, Bajka's singular voice. "Invisible Joy" is a similarly deep and tropical, but here the tone is much more jazzy, reminding us of Sun Ra in places. All in all, this is some pretty killer material.

  1. Basa Basa (4:08)
  2. Sahara Akwantuo (3:46)
Review: Those with a deep knowledge of Berlin's Ghanaian ex-pat "burger-highlife" scene may already be familiar with Lee Dodou, a singer who recorded a number of classic singles and albums during the 1980s as part of bands Georg Darko and Kantata. He retired from music in 1991, but has been persuaded to return to action by the Philophon team. This comeback single is pretty impressive all told, with A-side "Basa Basa" - a triumphantly celebratory chunk of 1960s "concert party" highlife rich in punchy horn lines and Dodou's full-throated vocals - being joined on the flipside by the slower, synth-laden "Sahara Akwantou". Brilliantly, the label describes this as "kraut-life" due to its unique (and rather good) fusion of highlife and German kosmiche.

  1. Everything You Do, You Do For Yourself (4:27)
  2. Estre (feat Florence Adooni) (5:02)
Review: Philophon is a Berlin-based label run by Max Weissenfeldt. Part of Philophon is the Tonstudio Bluetenring in Kreuzberg, operated by Benjamin 'Stibbo' Spitzmueller. The label's essential motivation is to support any form of local culture with reason, freedom and ludic drive. North-Ghanaian singer Guy One presents his first international release here. He promises what his name is saying: he is the number one artist of Frafra music, named after his people. "Everything You Do, You Do For Yourself" is a driving Highlife rhythm and his only song having a phrase in English. "Estre" features one of the leading voices of Frafra-Gospel named Florence Adooni. She interweaves perfectly with the horn arrangements by Weissenfeldt and the drummer. Washington's Hailu Mergia, San Francisco's Idris Ackamoor and the Pyramids and the legendary Scandinavian producer Jimi Tenor have also released on the label over the last year too.

  6. Yelmengere De La Gu'usi (6:32)
  7. Nongre, Nongre - Sugre, Sugre (5:10)
  8. Sella N'de Hu Dene (4:35)
Review: Guy One, so-called because he is "number one in Frafra music", has been making and releasing music in his native Ghana for a number of decades. This, though, is his first international release - a rare full-length excursion that showcases his sticky, percussive take on Highlife. It's a fantastically vibrant set, all told, with Guy One flitting between skittish dancefloor excursions, looser, drum-led efforts, more considered cuts and occasionally forays into funkier territory. The musicianship throughout is superb, while Guy One's vocals - sung in his native tongue, of course, but laden with enough emotion to ensure the message gets across to overseas listeners - are never less than sublime.

  1. Tinoge Ya Ta'a Ba (part 1) (3:27)
  2. Tinoge Ya Ta'a Ba (part 2) (2:45)
Review: Following their surprise reunion and Strut-release album We Be All Africans last year, Idris and The Pyramids return... This time on Max Weissenfeldt's Philophon imprint. Laying down a spiritual arrangement so frenetic and full of its own life it takes up two parts, Idris's sax plays duet with Philophon's own vocalist Guy One. Gutsy, raw and full of surprises, it's another out-of-body experience from the longstanding jazz troupe.

  1. Mam Yinne Wa (3:58)
  2. Yu Ya Yumma (3:24)
Review: Frafra gospel artist Alogte Oho was rumoured to be a leading artist within the 'explosive' music scene of Bolgatanga, in Northern Ghana. His debut release "Zota Yinne" in 2014 has already become a collectors item. On this release, Oho is joined by the all female choir group Sounds of Joy, comprised of Lizzy Amaliyenga, Patricia Adongo and Florence Adooni. On the A side, we have the uplifting and soulful vibes of "Mam Yinne Wa" featuring some wonderful wind and string instrument passages. On the flip is the reggae influenced swagger of "Yu Ya Yumma".

  1. Order Of Nothingness (3:36)
  2. Tropical Eel (4:22)
Review: Apart from having been a pinnacle of both Sahko's and Warp's success over the years, Finland's Jimi Tenor is simply a great musician, a true visionary when it comes to dance - and non-dance - experimentalism, and one of the few truly imaginative minds left; yes, we know that's a bold statement, but it's what we truly believe. Here he is on Philophon with a deeply explorative 7", starting with the psychedelic hymns of "Order Of Nothingness", a song that seems to be drenched in 70's mysticism, but that somehow also sounds utterly contemporary. "Tropical Eel" is more left of field, where digitised Eastern melodies bleep to a steady, jazzy rhythm that simply calls for a head-nod. Recommended.

  1. Quantum Connection (4:32)
  2. My Mind Will Travel (Teen party edit) (4:25)
Review: Finnish vibe artisan Jimi Tenor returns to Max Weissenfeldt's Philophon with two more contemporary dreamboat affairs... "Quantum Connection" springs with a bruk-like energy but chats in fluent jazz via the eastern horns and spiralling hook narrative. "My Mind Will Travel" maintains the spring but with much more of a loungey feel and a molten vocal that flops over the tightly plucked strings with humour and syrupy ease. One of a kind.
