Review: Joe Claussell's Sacred Rhythm Music is back to present new music under his alias The Bayara Citizens. Elektrik Afrika is his second full length of the project, where he pursues yet more of his idiosyncratic style of 'spiritual life music'. By fusing acoustic and electronic together as one, the project represents evolution - producing its own genetics and speaking an individual dialect of rhythm and sound. Traces can be heard in "Zainabu" (Spirit Dancer) which fuses electronic harmonizing on the skins of traditional folkloric rhythms, or the soul power of "Mofo Congoietric" (Joaquin's Sacred Rhythm version), through to the tunnelling and hypnotic power of "Bambara" (The Tribes Of Distortion dub) and the truly life-affirming "Diamonds" (It's Time To Let Our People Go).

  1. Afrikan Basement (version)
Review:  Straight from Joe Claussell and crew, Bolla's 'Afrikan Basement' is a release from Sacred Rhythms Soil series; fitting, as this feverishly stripped-down exercise in rhythm assassination couldn't be more suited for the job. Dope afro-latin percussion meets funky wah-wah guitar loops and builds along with an almost psychotic singular note that hums sinisterly throughout, inching a little higher until the record eventually peaks to its crescendo and explodes into a massive wall of stripped-down drums that will have any party's collective ass shaking. While it does capture the essence of the afro-cosmic aesthetic, it nevertheless maintains a steady dose of funk throughout.

  1. Sangre (10:05)
Review: Tribal, physical, psychedelic: Joe Claussell's Bolla project is one of his finest creative accomplishments for many fans, and his album Afrikan Basement: Makussa is the gift that keeps on giving. Having previously leaked limited 12"s, Joe's label Sacred Rhythm does it again with another super-limited, one-sided press. Hooky, insistent and far-out for the full 10 minutes, this is shaman material right here. Do not sleep.

Afrikan Basement Presents Disco Afri Co Co (1-sided 12" limited to 100 copies) (1 per customer)
Cat: SOIL 7700. Rel: 06 Oct 16
  1. Disco Afri Co Co (long version) (6:36)
Review: Joe Clausell began this project in 2005 and still it keeps giving. An evocative fusion of afrofunk and disco inspiration, most of us assumed his decade's work had culminated last year with the album Makussa. We were wrong; this year he's delivered a series of heavily requested extensions, this beautiful slice of string-surged disco being the most recent. The extra two minutes are exactly what the DJ needs for a much roomier groove that allows the salubrious elements to really strut; the shimmering guitar, the strident strings, the insatiable afro-infused drums. Just when we thought the original couldn't be topped... We were wrong. Again!

  1. Brian Auger's Oblivion Express - "Whenever Your Ready" (8:49)
  2. Michael Wycoff - "Come To My World" (6:45)
Review: Ahead of Paul David Gillman's album on Sacred Rhythm, Claussell takes the time to present two celebratory takes on two stone cold fusion classics. The Latin keys, trembling organs and emphatic harmonies of Brian Auger's "Whenever You're Ready" are subtly charged with Joe's signature percussive magic, creating a sense of momentum that refuses to detract from the original magic while Wycoff's cult gospel-tinged funk "Come To My World" reminds us of his work on Stevie's legendary Songs In The Key Of Life. Subtly amplified and extended, Claussell has blessed us with an ultimate end-of-night gem right here.

  2. Simple Things (Joaquin Drum dub version)
Review: A Latin-licked soulful house groove laced with Balearic guitars and Roland at his most falsetto, this first came our way in 2006. Originally released with remixes from Quentin Harris and Kenny Dope, then later Blaze, it takes a bold producer to add to its heritage. Cue: Sacred Rhythm label boss Joe Claussell under his Joaquin guise. The Sacred Rhythm pays respect to the samba spirit while adding hypnotising, organic piano flows. Meanwhile his Drum Dub adds massive Puerto Rican horn-drenched carnival vibes. Both versions are faultless.

Review: Given his strong faith and decidedly cosmic approach to music, it's perhaps not that surprising that Joe Clausell's latest project is a mix of gospel music. What's perhaps most interesting about Praise 2 (In Praise of The Sun) is the variety of the material on offer. Gospel has long been a cornerstone of black American dance music, and Clausell wisely tries to tell the full story. So, while there are crackly early gospel recordings from the 1930s, gospel-funk from the '60s and all-acapella recordings, he also touches on disco, boogie, soulful house and 80s gospel soul. The result is a riotous mix that's as entertaining as it is righteous.

Residue Part III (180 gram vinyl 12")

Deep House
  1. Teenage Music - "Looking For Bargain"
  2. Forest Electrik - "Freedum"
  3. Forest Electrik - "Circuiltry Haywire"
Review: Three years on from the release of the second installment of the Residue series, Joe Clausell has decided to bring it back. While the three tracks included are credited to two different artists, there's no doubt that it's Clausell at the controls. By his standard, all three cuts are pretty bold, wild and in your face, beginning with the retro-futurist, gospel house meets organ-heavy deep house of Teenage Music's superb "Looking For Bargain". Forest Electrik's "Freedum" [sic] is a surprisingly electronic, tech-tinged affair, and sees Clausell wrapping his usual African-influenced house grooves in springy bass, swirling electronics and intense synth solos. Those mental electronics come to the fore on "Circuitry Haywire", which sounds like someone having an epileptic fit while leaning on a synthesizer keyboard.

  1. With More Love (Special 7" edit) (6:49)
  2. With More Love (Special edit instrumental version) (6:42)
Review: Originally released back in 2009 in its' epic 13-minute original form, "With More Love" remains one of Joaquin "Joe" Claussell's most endearing tracks - a gorgeous chunk of sun-kissed spiritual house rich in fluid piano solos, sunset-ready classical guitar solos, undulating bass, non-verbal vocal harmonies and the producer's bouncy Afro-Latin house beats. Happily, Clausell has decided to reissue the track, offering up two scaled-down versions that fit on one tidy seven-inch single. On the A-side you'll find the "Special 7" Edit", a six minute blast of ultra-positive dancefloor bliss that's about the most positive thing we've heard in ages. Turn to the flip for a previously unreleased instrumental take that strips the track back further, allowing the gorgeous piano solos and busy bass guitar more room to breathe.

Review: Some six years after releasing a limited-edition collection of reworks from his bulging archives, spiritual house maestro Joaquin "Joe" Clausell serves up a sequel. Broadly speaking, the New York-based producer's fine revisions fall into two camps: faithful and reverential re-edits with minimal additional instrumentation (see his ace edit of Methusalem's "Robotism", a spaced-out tweak of disco-boogie epic "Let Me Be The One" and the spiraling San Fran disco madness of "Hot, Hot (Give It All You Got)"), and house-focused hush-hush re-interpretations (the incessant sax loops, bustling bass, wild organ riffs and jacking beats of "Conversation" and more soulful flex of "You Just Can't Smile It Away"). More importantly, all are superb, club-focused revisions that sound like peak-time anthems in waiting.

Review: Given his interest in all things spiritual, it was little surprise when Joaquin 'Joe' Claussell launched the Praise series of gospel compilations back in 2013. Clausell's desire was not only to celebrate gospel as a vibrant musical form in its own right, but also to showcase its enduring influence on American dance music. This fourth edition in the series retains a similar focus, collecting together church-made recordings of choirs and soloists, studio recordings, and soul, funk, jazz, disco and house shot through with the righteous spirit of gospel. It makes for a heady, life-affirming mix and includes standout tracks from Pastor L.T Barrett, Peabo Bryson, The Main Ingredient, The Rance Allen Group and C&T, whose disco stomper "Get Ready For This" (track 13) is an absolute delight.

Review: Like many DJs with production nous, Joaquin "Joe" Clausell has always made re-edits and remixes to play in his sets. From time to time, he releases these on CD under the Unofficial Edits, Overdubs & Unreleased Remixes header. This fourth volume in the occasional series boasts plenty of gems reflective of the producer's influences and inspirations. So, while "Life Another" sees him deliver an extra-seductive version of a D'Angelo modern soul gem, the track that follows, "Fuego" is a superb Afro-house interpretation of a forgotten Osibida cut. Elsewhere, you'll find a thrusting, peak-time revision of Giorgio Moroder, a thrillingly spacey chunk of dub disco, and a couple of rock solid disco-era soul revisions.

As with 2014's inaugural collection, once again we're treated to the full spiritual spectrum from his epic take on Barbara Mason & Bunny Sigler's already beautiful "Locked In This Position" to a cathedral level take on The Fifth Dimension's "Aquarius", this really is a special (not to mention highly limited) 12".

This 12" boasts extended, club-friendly versions of tracks from that full-length, the impressive Makussa. There's much to enjoy, from the toughened-up Afro-disco revivalism of "Disco Afri Co Co (Extended Version)", and intense, deep space drum workout "A Means of Communication (Freaky Dub)", to the trumpet-laden Afro-house niceness of "Wandolo Feat Bonga (Freaky Dub Extended)". There's also a fine trip into downtempo pastures in the shape of "Ninaitwa (Called By The Drum)".

Review: Last year, Joe Clausell delivered the first album from the Afro-centric Bolla project he begun way back in 2005, following it up with an essential 12" of extended, dancefloor-friendly revisions. Here, he delivers a follow-up EP along similar lines. There's naturally much to admire, starting with Clausell's own "Personal Boiler Room version" of the jaunty, saxophone-laden "Makusa". He takes a trip to the farthest reaches of the galaxy on "Basement Seance", whose sparse African rhythms and delay-laden vocals work magnificently with the track's decidedly spaced-out synths. "Downward Staircase" is a breezier, jazz-flecked Afro-house jam blessed with luscious Latin piano solos, while the Sacred Rhythm version of "Sangre" is a highly charged, uptempo romp through percussion-heavy, Afrobeat-influenced territory.

Residual Three is Joe stepping up under different monikers, first as Teenage Music with the loose, vocal-driven house amalgam that is "The Bargain", followed by "Freedum" on his Forest Elektrik name - a bouncy, synth-heavy dance experimentation - and a completely distorted, near beatless jam under the same name, entitled "Circuitry Haywire". Dopeness embodied.

In other words, Clausell has offered up DJ-friendly extended versions of some of his most cosmic, Afro-centric creations. There's much to enjoy throughout, from the psychedelic rock guitar solos, restless bass, layered Latin house rhythms and rainforest sounds of Cosmic Ritual's "Abraxas (Demo Sketch Mix)", to the piano sporting cosmic house positivity of Mampo's "Emarofo Tech (Extended Sketch Mix)", via the spaced-out electronics, hallucinatory synth lines and sparse drums of intoxicating downtempo workout "Mundo De Agua (Psyxchdelic Transfusion Mix)".

The idea for the compilation was inspired by the concept of his event Share: the upcoming Share Afrika will see Claussell digging through his archives and bringing out compositions exploring Afrika, African Diaspora, dub and more. Beginning with the deeply magical and meditative vibe of "African Drug" (Joaquin's Drugged Out Sketch mix) by Bob Holroyd, the soulful and uplifting deepness of "Emarofo Tech" (Joaquin's Demo Sketch Mix) by Mampo or Cosmic Ritual's "Abraxas" (Joaquin demo Sketch mix) which is classic Claussell - reminiscent of work on his seminal Language album from the turn of the millennium.

"Affect", "Nuances", and "Seciov" all act as beatless electronic tools, a trio of synth sways to add extra effect to your DJ mix. Yes, Joe!

Jephte Guillaume's "Vocal Mix" is smoother than the original in its pitch, the added orchestral strings and brass adding depth. Tek Kale takes the other adaptation by storm, erasing the vocals and concentrating solely on the musical platform. Its ferocious beat against the delicacy of the percussion, strings and brass minus the vocal distraction make this Juno's pick of the bunch.

Review: Much to the surprise of many house enthusiasts, Joe Claussel's Sacred Rhythm imprint delves into plenty of different genres and styles, all of them bound together by a recurring thread of percussive delight. Paul David Gillman debuts here, coming through with three gloriously loose slices of kinetic ambient fuzz, with the terms 'new age' and 'balearic' coming through vividly. The opening "Red Earth" is a supremely jazzy whirlpool of sonics and harmonic delight, which evaporates neatly into the much vaster planes of "Installation III". "Winter's Moon (excerpt)" washes away all the fury and energy of the previous two tracks to end up somewhere desolate and calming, offering a beautiful piece of soundscaping for the ambient fans.

Review: Dope new vinyl 7" featuring exclusive mixes of this beautiful psychedelic house tour de force 'Gentle Rain' with Acid Rain mixes. Experimenting with the uncomfortable mixture of dance-friendly production and the sternly serious project of psychedelic adventurism, Sacred Rhythm has remixed and released this record by H Garden featuring Joi. These mixes are undoubtedly in a more exploratory tone. Luscious chords set the framework for this piano led masterpiece, all the while drifting along on perfectly placed synth arrangements. 'Gentle Rain' might appear pretty at first; a closer listen will yield more confusing emotional reaction as the record at once soothes and disorients. Of course, anyone experienced in introspective exploration and healing should know nourishment and pain are not mutually exclusive.

While the concept - and there always is one with Clausell - may be hard to grasp, there's no denying the quality and rich musicality that pepper the American producer's evocative soundscapes. It's the sort of album that works on many levels, and it takes a few listens to fully appreciate its' multitude of layers and textures.

  2. African Drug (Joaquin Joe Claussell Hallucination version) (8:19)
Review: Long before the rise in interest in African music, British electronica producer Bob Holyroyd was making tracks rich in traditional instrumentation. "African Drug" is, undoubtedly, the most famous of these. Originally released as a single in 1994, the intensely melodious, Steve Reich-esque work has been remixed numerous times over the years. This latest edition arrives on Joaquin "Joe" Clausell's Sacred Rhythm label, with profits going to charities that work to save Africa's endangered Rhino. The A-side contains a freshly mixed and re-mastered version of Holroyd's brilliant original - which brilliantly increases in intensity with the addition of tribal drums two thirds of the way through - with a more percussive, pleasingly hallucinogenic Clausell remix on the flip. In a word: essential.

Review: On his latest Sacred Rhythm compilation, Joaquin 'Joe' Clausell says Thank You Universe, with a little help from his friends. According to the man himself, the collection was inspired by "a desperate need for World healing". Regardless of the New York producer's inspirations, what's delivered is an enjoyable set of global musical fusions that touches on jazz, Latin beats, African rhythms, downtempo grooves, ambient and, of course, decidedly cosmic deep house. Highlights include the blissful Afro-house loveliness of Clausell's own "With More Love", the jazzy, late night wonder of Clausell's remix of Kuniyuki Takahashi's "All These Things", and the smooth, late night deep house of Unchained Rhythms' "Wall Of The Heart".

Review: Joe Claussel has never been one to stand still. Even so, this must arguably be his most ambitious artistic project yet. Trembling Sensing Space started life as an art installation in Amsterdam, where Lidy Six and Katinka Marac's visuals came together with seven tracks composed by Claussel as a unique 'experience'. This CD/DVD package offers an in-depth retrospective, offering Claussel's colour-themed compositions - mostly beatless but occasionally blessed with a pulse, all presented in 5:1 surround sound - alongside a 40-page booklet explaining the creative process. The included DVD delves deeper, offering footage of the installation in action alongside 'making of' featurettes and such.

  1. Pass The Buck (A Tom Moulton mix) (5:27)
  2. Pass The Buck (A Joaquin Joe Claussell edits & Overdub) (9:35)
Review: Tom Moulton's fabulous mix of Love Committee's "Pass The Buck" was never given a proper 12" release back in 1978, instead making its way onto the band's debut album, "Law and Order". Here it finally gets an airing across a side of a record, with a new "edits and overdubs" revision by Sacred Rhythm boss Joaquin Joe Claussell on the flip. The latter builds on the soaring, grandiose power, swirling strings and urgent group vocals of Moulton's classic version, building from a layered, densely percussive start towards a sweaty conclusion via waves of instrumentation, swirling synthesized strings and everything-but-the-kitchen sink production. It is, then, a thoroughly brilliant rework of a classic - if under-celebrated - disco cut.

  1. 90 Degrees Below Zero (Joe Thermometric dub)
  2. I Dub Thee Gypsy (Joe Nomad mix)
  3. Disorganized Corruption (Joe East Village dub)
Review: Joe Claussell's burgeoning Lower East Side Pipes project has given rise to a small grip of records dealing in live, vibrant house tracks that draw on guitar and other such elements to create a very singular sound. Here he revisits some of these jams under his own name to bring an alternative perspective on his creations, kicking off with a "Thermometric Dub" of "90 Degrees Below Zero". The tempo may be frantic, but the atmosphere on the track is actually more of a searching one, not least through the expressive guitar work that sits atop the thrumming house beat. "I Dub Thee Gipsy" is a slower affair where the beats break open a little and the synths in the background twirl politely around the guitar until a heads down dub-out takes hold. With the disco backbone of "Disorganized Corruption", there's ample room for the guitar to freak out in a blissful, groove-fuelled jam.

Review: Claussell returns with another spiritual belter. Taking Herbie Mann's 1975 original and adding gentle layers of fusion melodies and atmospheres, Joe takes a soul boogie gem and polishes into a timeless dancefloor diamond. Comes complete with the perfectly preserved original cover of Barrabas's 1974 hit on the B. Watch out for those iconic heavily-sampled Latin stabs on the chorus... And be prepared for your full attention to be hijacked!

Review: Jephte Guillaume and Joaquin "Joe" Clausell have been releasing collaborative singles and EPs as Mental Remedy for the best part of 17 years. Even so, A Journey To Noi is the New York duo's first full-length excursion. In their own words, the album is a soundtrack that "tells the story of an artist who travels to a foreign land and finds her true calling" with guidance from "melody, rhythm, dance and friendships". The soundtrack aspect is arguably key, as there's certainly something cinematic about the duo's fusion of global instrumentation, sweeping orchestration, deep space electronic ambient and, as you'd expect from a Clausell project, musically expansive spiritual house and jazz-dance workouts. Perhaps what's most impressive, though, is the sheer magnitude of the pair's collective musical vision.

  1. Mi Congo Te Llama (Sacred Rhythm Main mix)
  2. Mi Congo Te Llama (Sacred Rhythm dub mix)
Review: "Mi Congo te llama" is sheer sultry house, music for smooth talking gentleman to accompany sleek women around a chandelier lit dancefloor, while on stage the Afro-Caribbean band knock out tremendously soulful and touching jams. The trumpet blares through this track with a tremendous force and energy, implanting its wailing and forlorn brass notes deep inside your mind. The men on stage clap roughly in time with the rhythm as the crowd is worked into an ever growing frenzy of swirling silk gowns and sharp dance moves. The dub mix on the flip dampens the intensity slightly, but what it lacks in impact it makes up for in emotion. The band works its trumpet player hard, muting those crisp brass notes and implanting them deeper into the mix, allowing the rest of the music room to breathe. It's testament to the quality of these edits that, on one side, you'll be spinning flamboyantly around a crowded dancehall, and on the other you'll be gently stroking your lovers hair as you take in a velvet night under the stars.

Review: New York's Rebel Tumbao, spearheaded by percussionist Jose Clausell (brother of spiritual deep house maestro Joe), Matt Jenson and vocalist Toussaint "The Liberator" Yeshua, offer a unique proposition. This debut album, some 13 years in development, impressively sets out their stall, delivering an attractive and unique blend of socially conscious reggae, the punchy horns of Afro-Cuban music, the percussive swing of jazz, and the super-smooth vocals of modern soul. It's a fusion that regularly pays dividends, from a genius-like Afro-Cuban fusion of John Coltrane's "A Love Supreme" and Bob Marley's "Exodus", to the lilting, sun-baked soul of "Muse".

Review: Longstanding house peer Watson comes correct with this breathtaking outing on Joe Claussell's Sacred Rhythm. Taking off where he left us on his own Everysoul Audio last year, it's another lavish, unhurried and timeless composition that tips nods to all eras with its velvet pads and Julien Jabre style pianos. The words 'Epic Intro mix' say it all, as does the 13 minute length; Watson's timing ahead of the summer couldn't be better. Daydreamy, liquid in its development and soulful to the very core... If you're playing so much as one al fresco event this season - even your nan's BBQ - you need to pack this.

  1. The Harvest (Joaquins Bayara Citizens version) (9:52)
Review: Austrian jazz pianist Joe Zawinul has seen it and done it all. The man has been part of the jazz scene since the 1960s, and he has landed on timeless imprints such as Columbia, Atlantic and Prestige, so top marks there and absolutely no questions asked. He's up for something a little bit different this time and, in fact, he appears only as the original producer of "The Harvest", remixed here into an acid-laden and self-stlyed 'Bayara Citizens' house bombshell from Joaquin Claussell. There is little no jazz at the core of this ten minute monster, but the arrangement is wild and uncontrollable, much like the rhythms of the 60's jazz scene. A trip you wouldn't expect...
