  4. GG Is Talking (7:49)
Review: Tireless diggers and world class reissue merchants Mr Bongo have done it again with this one. They discovered The Star Beams when one of their tracks was on a Disco Calypso compilation, then went on a mission to track down the original anymore material from the band, who turned out to be based in South Africa instead of the Carribean. The resulting record is a real gem - disco, funk and jazz all get chewed up and spat out across four fantastically timeless cuts of dance floor dynamite. "Disco Stomp" in particular you might already know as Theo Parrish has been dropping in his sets for time.

  12. We'll Find Each Other Again
Review: Minneapolis deep house veteran Malcolm Moore returns to his own label Altered Moods with another blissful excursion into the farthest realms of smoked-out expression. It takes but a moment to sink into "Everydaelife" and place this sound - the kind of pattering rhythm sections and powerfully melancholic chords that you'd expect from the likes of Dubbyman, Anton Zap or Ron Trent. Moore has his own take on things though, bringing a blown out jack to the table on "Own The Nite (90s House Rescrub)"and creating a moving, downtempo funk on "Lunchtime Gaze". The more forthright grooves are impeccable too though - "Rodalies R1" hits every sweet spot a deep house lover could wish for.

Vladimir's Groove (limited 7" repress)

Funk
  1. Vladimir's Groove (3:40)
  2. Igor's Groove (3:12)
Review: Come on, its 2016, of course there are soul bands from Russia. More specifically, there's soul bands from Russia that make absolutely incredible music, and The Soul Surfers are one of them. They've been busy over the last 6-7 years, and the Spasibo label have been instrumental in getting their sound across to the masses. "Vladimir's Groove" is deep, funky and wet, filled with an awesome slap-back bass, a trippy cascade of organs and just a general feeling of "yeah". "Igor's Groove" is slower, more laid-back and possibly even better and bolder, bringing out the best out of this band and solidifying them as serious contenders for best soul kings of the post 2000's. A band to watch - keep 'em peeled!

Review: American lo-fi house punk Delroy Edwards is back on the label that started it all off for him. Fresh from his collaboration with Dean Blunt, he serves up an album of old school jams that will get hands in the air. "Slap Happy" would be a kitsch track in a lesser artists hands, "Snake Eyes" plays with a lumpy rhythm that is bare bones and brilliant, and that rhythmic playfulness continues on loopy excellence like "Buckeye Beats". "Nightmare House" echoes the earliest proto-house to come out of Chicago and that throwback vibe continues on the party starting "Rock This Place". These are mechanical and skeletal grooves that always manage to sound familiar and accessible.

Review: Rising London newcomer and regular DJ at the legendary Rupture Decibella makes her debut on Stretch's AKO Beatz with two straight-up jugular-cutters. Both writhing in the dark art of break craft, these are straight up jungle jams tailored for the dance. "Outta London" is the most forthright track of the set with its heavily layered breaks and dynamic flips from soft to savage while "Be True" nods back to the hardcore era with its euphoric pads, classic rave vocal line and more drums that were carved straight from the leathery soles of the devil's dancing feet. Expect more noise from Decibella very very soon.

Review: Ian William Craig returns with a new album heavily shrouded in personal experience. The recording took place around the heavy wildfire season in British Columbia, Canada, 2018, during which time Craig lost his grandfather and felt the scepter of climate change hanging heavily over his life and those around him. In exceptional circumstances he made this album with his grandfather's piano and some tape processing, placing himself and his voice front and centre and laying bare the pain of loss and the uncertainty of the future. There is hope and love folded into the music too, culminating in a beautiful moving album that stands as a career high point for one of the most inventive contemporary singer-songwriters out there.

Review: Following on from the excellent "Scene In Mirage" reissue that broke O Yuki Conjugate to a whole new crowd, Emotional Rescue return to the archives of the over-looked Nottingham "dirty ambient" outfit. Their second LP "Into Dark Water", originally released in 1987, is just as powerful as the first - a hypnagogic journey fuelled by a global stew of sound, feeding into elegant, evocative pieces. Fans of classic Jon Hassell will find much to enjoy here, but equally those appreciating the exotic post punk undercurrents of 23 Skidoo et al will easily find themselves drawn to the likes of "Ba-makala". Stunning, borderless musings from a hidden treasure of the UK's post-industrial heritage.

  1. Track 1 (18:40)
  2. Track 2 (22:20)
Review: South Korea's intimate and acclaimed venue, The Edge, was the address Parisian IDM and electronica talent DK chose to record this limited 12" journey into deep, atmospheric sound. Given the shamefully sweeping and stereotypical view of everything East Asia being steeped in traditions of spirituality, it's hard to imagine a more fitting location for these wares to be laid out. Less a case of individual tracks, and more along the lines of movements - to borrow from the classical world - listeners should prepare for a slice of avant-garde ambience here, with compositions offering moments of tension, release, subtle rhythm and soaring sonic scapes. Very much one for those who want their keys to grow and build like organic lifeforms, there's not much else to be said, other than you should prepare for a real aural experience.

Review: For anyone with even the smallest interest in gospel music and its relationship with black American dance music, Joaquin 'Joe' Clausell's "Praise" series of mix CDs should be essential listening. Volume six, subtitled "A Prayer For Peace, Love & Wisdom", is every bit as inspired as its predecessor, with Clausell moving between traditional choral gospel music, gospel soul, and soul-jazz, deep house and disco (including Crown Heights Affair's incredible "Say A Prayer") featuring suitably righteous lyrics. To tie the whole thing together, Clausell has also included a number of inspirational and thought-provoking spoken word samples taken from recordings of preachers and black community leaders. It's a brilliant touch.

Review: The 50th release from Solar One Music gets a suitably special treatment: it is a limited picture disc with artwork by Abdul Haqq from Detroit, who is well known for his work for Drexciya. The electro contained within is of high standard too, as The Exaltics return with their first new material after "II Worlds" on Clone late last year. It's deep, dark, high speed stuff with creepy melodies where both head and heel are kept engaged throughout. "The Troublemaker" in particular has all the right ingredients to become something of a modern day anthem.

Review: Welcome back Tycho, on a productive roll and ready to dive straight back in after 2019's stellar "Weather" album for Ninja Tune. This follow-up continues in the vein of Scott Hansen's creative arc to date, fusing traditional band dynamics with electronics in the most fluid of ways, and making a heart-stirring brew out of the resulting interplay. The drums bite with urgency on tracks like "Outer Sunset", but never at the expense of the winsome guitar lines and swooning synths. The tempo ups and the beats diversify on "Easy", but the overall mood remains consistent throughout "Simulcast". It's a cohesive world that wraps around you from the first bars to the last, and it's a very pleasant place to be.

Review: From Angola via Belgium and Manchester, Nazar follows 2018's Hyperdub rough kuduro debut "Enclave" with this immense multi-faceted body of work that analyses the Angolan war of independence, its atrocities and effects on its displaced people and his family. From the portrait on the cover of his rebel general father to many of the samples and stories, Nazar paints an unnerving picture that ranges from the militant drum shots fired on "Diverted" to the eerie juxtaposition of "FIM-92 Stinger" where a surface-to-air missile launcher gives it name to one of the album's most soulful, touching moments. Elsewhere we hear voices of his family on "Mother", we're fired up with gritty, unapologetic universal question "Why" and left asking more questions on the fractured finale "End Of Guerrilla". Much deeper than an album, this is a document, musically, politically, emotionally. Nazar and Hyperdub have created something truly unique.

Review: Joaquin 'Joe' Clausell's latest round of spiritual and percussive dancefloor workouts were apparently "randomly selected" from the vaults of DJ tools and work-in-progress tracks tucked away under the floorboards at Sacred Rhythm HQ. Naturally there's nothing genuinely "half-finished" here, just a quartet of cuts worthy of your attention. He begins with "Elegua", a West African style workout that boasts call-and-response group vocals and a loose, languid tribal rhythm track, before moving towards heavy Afro-house territory via the deep, dark analogue bass, machine beats and densely layered percussion of "Makussa PT Three". Over on side B, "Di Mayo" layers sharp, spacey synths and lashings of special effects to a dubbed-out Afro-house rhythm, while the gloriously colourful "Afrofunkjazz" lives up to its title.

Review: When we first reviewed "Girl & Robot With Flowers" back in 2012, eight-piece combo The Greg Foat Group was still a relatively unknown quantity. Since then, they've gone from success to success, releasing a string of inspired albums. Even so, "Girl & Robot With Flowers" remains one of their most stunning sets, as this re-press proves. It boasts quietly beautiful moments inspired by classic film soundtracks ("Girl & Robot With Flowers Part 3"), straight-up late night jazz movements ("For Breath A Tarry", "Cast Adrift"), and breezy, vibraphone-heavy '60s grooves ("The Girl & Robot With Flowers Part 5"). Throughout, it's beautifully played and lovingly produced, with Foat's impeccable piano playing taking centre stage.

Review: Andrew Weatherall and Timothy J Fairplay's project of dubbed out disco and house spread itself comfortably across the Ruled By Passion, Destroyed By Lust LP on Rotters Golf Club mere months before, and now a rag tag collection of remixers has been drawn together to reinterpret most of the album. They've reached for like-minded souls, such as Ivan Smagghe, Phil Kieran, Richard Sen and Justin Robertson with the latter's Deadstock 33s remix of "Beglammered" filled with nervy industrial undertones. Elsewhere, Black Merlin do an especially captivating job of soundtracking "Skwatch" into a lurid 80s gore fest for the ears, while Scott Fraser whips up a hypnotic Italo inflected stomper, but really every one of these esteemed producers adds to the overall tone of vintage, motor-powered dance music for ghoulish souls.

Review: Last year, Amsterdam-based Turkish band Altin Gun delivered one of the most potent - and arguably overlooked - debut albums of the year, "On". 12 months on they return with album number two, "Gece", an inspired fusion of heavyweight Turkish psychedelia, funk, freak-folk and intergalactic rock. While the songs and recordings are brand new, the band's choice of instrumentation - vintage Moog synths, gnarled funk-rock guitars, skittish drums and fuzzy bass guitar - and 1960s style production gives the whole thing a deliciously retro feel. It's a recipe that guarantees thrills and spills, with "Yolcu", "Sofor Bey", "Derdimi Dokersem" and spacey "Gesi Baglari" among the many highlights.

Review: Lyon's exotically-tinged electronic dance scene is the envy of many other parts of the world, and Macadam Mambo - the label carrying this exceptional collection of otherworldly tones - is right up there with the finest France's third city has to offer. As delectable as anything the country's gastronomic capital might serve up. Houschyar himself suits an imprint that cares little for geographical borders or any boundaries we may associate with them. Originally from Dresden, Germany, the artist is now based in Istanbul, one of the planet's foremost cultural melting pots. As such it shouldn't surprise anyone to learn these contents touch upon Krautrock, Berlin School, electro and shadowy synth wave, with more than a few punk edges thrown in for good measure. The result is packed with attitude, strange hypnotic danceability and a sense of adventure.

Review: Kicking off, or rather easing in with the lush and absorbing 'Miya', it's hard not to imagine vast landscapes when exploring this effort from Slow Reels. Constant refrains of shimmering sounds seem to pervade most corners of the four tracks, which could be used for background atmosphere one moment, and then act as the driving forces behind a deep cognitive adventure the next. As with many ambient works of this kind, you can find beauty and heartbreak in equal measure, perhaps positioning this end of the canon among the most reflective of the human experience. 'Farewell' might not scream about this from the rooftops, but there's a tangible sense of time passing, thoughts and the thinkers closest to us leaving it all behind. Definitely aimed at inspiring ideas and imaginations, this will be a muse for many.

Review: Sth. Notional was a short-lived project that manifested in one album back in 1992, originally released on Japanese label Zero Corporation. Yawn Yawn Yawn focused primarily on various Balearic-friendly mixes of the title track and some other scattered pieces, and now they've received a much-needed spruce up from Archeo Recordings. The "Dream... Another Reality" versions of "Yawn Yawn Yawn" are laid back to the extreme, revolving around delicate instrumentation and occasional threads of speech and singing. There's a mellow beat behind the "G-Tar Cannyon Mix," and the "Thankful Mix" brings a weightier groove to the table. With the other tracks adding to this utterly smooth, early 90s shake, and spread across three discs, this is the holy grail reissue collectors have been waiting for.

Review: Hawaiian label Aloha Got Soul look to Hawaii's own Greenwood for a lovely 7" that takes in two versions of a cover he recorded of Tatsuro Yamashita's "Sparkle". First released in 1985, his take on it was a huge hit, then 25 years later was returned to the fray by a remix from DJ Euro. That encouraged Greenwood to get the band together to record another version and that is now included on the B side. Both are dazzling cuts of sax-laced soul jazz fusion with soaring vocals, big drums and plenty of sun kissed joy.

Review: In the run up to the big reveal of her second album, lush-yet-broken Los Angeles singer songwriter Alexandra Savior was interviewed by Billboard magazine. Therein she expounded on the difficulty in making an album coherent, and judging one's own work.

It's safe to say "The Archer", produced by Sam Cohen's exceptional ear and released on Danger Mouse's ever-explorative and daring label, is both coherent and wonderful. "Soft Currents" opens a relentlessly high scoring track list with sombre, heartfelt vocals and piano, confirming Savior as an artist who can easily adopt more traditional aural styles. Things don't stay that way for long, though. "Crying All The Time" wouldn't sound out of place on a Lynch or Tarantino soundtrack, "Bad Disease" owes much to bluesy R&B, and "Saving Grace" packs a real psychedelic punch. We could go on, but the point should be pretty clear already.

Review: First things first: the world has come a long way in its attitude to women since this album was first released, so in 2019, 2001 sounds - at least lyrically - wrong on many levels. But it is also still very right when it comes to g-funk, west coast rap and second wave hip hop sounds. Listening to it from start to finish is to spend 90 minutes as a fly on the wall of the lives of Snoop, Dre, Eminem and all the rest of the high profile guests. Jam packed with classics and gold standards, this is an album of its time but one that was never bettered.

Review: Phantasy Sound's main man Daniel Avery has linked up with modular wizard Alessandro Cortini for a debut full length, "Illusion Of Time". It came together over many years, with no real concept or constraints but it has still managed to make a powerful impact despite its spare, lo-fi, ambient vibes. There are heavier, darker tracks like "Inside The Ruins" that are brilliantly bleak, but also thoughtful meditations like the title track, which has some magical piano playing at its core. It's the rays of light amongst the darkness that make this such a beguiling and beautiful listen, and a perfect soundtrack to long lost days at home during lockdown.

Review: There's so much said about Russian techno icon Nina Kraviz it's easy to forget about the important stuff. This collaboration of remixes of her St Vincent collaboration could be used to set any record straight - it might comprise interpretations by an enviable list of name-droppable producers, but the vast scope is entirely in keeping with Kraviz's broad musical knowledge and penchant for experimental ends of dance music. Hessle Audio chap Pearson Sound delivers some post-dubstep starkness, Batu - prince of forward UK techno noises - goes for something far more ravey, setting things up nicely for another of today's leading lights, Laurel Halo, to continue on that route. Elsewhere, though, Jlin opts for a broken, dirty trap-infused bounce, while Emika Allegiance turns "Sugarboy" into a beautiful, arpeggiated synth overture. In short, sum total is equal to the impressive parts.

Melvo Baptiste once again selects a load of fantastic tracks that brim with soul, diva vocals and timeless basslines. Highlights are plentiful throughout, but our picks of the bunch are "Chic Mystique" awashed with serious 90s New York vibes, all out Soul Train groover "Gotta Keep On Trying" by Tenderness and Jungle Brothers who bring some of their street wise hip house styles to the throwback "What 'U' Waitin' 4?".

Review: In 2009, two years after the original version appeared on Somi's debut album "Red Soil In My Eyes", Joaquin "Joe" Claussell and Brian Bacchus joined forces as Soul Feast to remix Fela Kuti cover "African Lady". A decade on, Claussell has decided to reissue the package's most potent and percussive moment, the layered "Drum Dub" on a tasty seven-inch single. While there are key elements of Somi's original version present - the killer bassline, some delay-laden horns and fleeting glimpses of guitar - the mix is dominated by layered Afro-house percussion. This time round, the mix comes backed with an "Acapella EFXS" version, which contains all of Somi's superb vocal and is closer in tone to the duo's 2009 club mix. Like the A-side, it's superb.

Craftily sculpted and joyously composed, this is a delightfully modernist twist on the blueprint Cabs helped define all those decades ago. The spirit of progress is alive and well across this beautifully bonkers record - all disco delinquents take note!

Recently rediscovered, these demos are finally being given a release thanks to the efforts of Far Out chief Joe Davis. There's much to admire on this first batch (a second volume is also available) of previously unheard early recordings, from the high-octane Brazilian funk insanity of "Prefacio" and Jimmy Smith-esque "Melo De Cuica", to the spacey samba/jazz-funk fusion of "Xingo (Version One)" and the relaxed, slow-burn brilliance of seven minute B-side opener "Laranjeiras".

Review: Metalheadz may be in its 26th year of operation, but are still turning out high grade weaponry as innovative as any label out there. The London label's busy schedule continues apace with a blistering new one that finds Adred collaborate with four distinctive talents. First up is Commix with the dense and drilling "Interface 01", while a second effort "Recall" goes deeper and more mysterious. Dave Owen co-pilots on "2 Times", another restless banger with fizzing synths and flurries of drums, and elsewhere solo cut "Amenity" from Adred makes the most intense moment of the whole 2 discs. This is no nonsense stuff from start to finish.

Review: The first release from the Axis Audiophile Series. Jeff Mills has formed an electronic jazz fusion band and this 12? is a recording of their recent performance in Kobe during the TodaysArt.JP Festival. Mills manages the decks, drums and percussion and is joined Detroit legend and Underground Resistance stalwart Gerald Mitchell (Los Hermanos/Galaxy 2 Galaxy), keyboardist Yumiko Ohno and bassist Kenji Jino. "Eventide" has the same kind of urban, uplifting soul as anything Kaidi Thatham or Mark de Clive-Lowe have made and isn't bad at all! On the flip "Happy Gamma Ray" features uplifting keys and emotive chords backed by funk bass and one of Mills' unmistakeable 909 drum machine workouts. It really seems that there's no limit to this Motor City legend's creativity which has spanned nearly 30 years and we're excited about this new chapter in the Wizard's sonic universe.

There's a lot of moods touched on, making "These Days" a rich and rewarding listen from start to finish. Whether it's crooked noir-inflected bug-outs or laid back rollers, Casimir and Hirst have made a beautiful partnership on this thoroughly contemporary jazz set.

Mixing up soul, reggae and ska in a party starting and playful style, it has swagger to spare and comes on limited edition orange vinyl. There are only 1000 copies available, so don't hang around.

A collection of nine new songs, the record was written and played by Thom and was produced by Nigel Godrich. Variously hailed as "The Best Band In The World" (Q Magazine), "Rock's Best Live Band" (Rolling Stone) and the band were placed at number 1 of Spin Magazine's 40 most influential artists, Radiohead has arguably become the most acclaimed and adventurous force in modern music. Over six studio albums the group have proved that it is possible to make massive creative leaps whilst continuing to grow in worldwide stature. Their records set new benchmarks for others to aim towards, whilst their live shows reach levels of intensity and exploration that few can match.

Musically it is a slick and adventurous album with urgent beats, cold wave synths and neat guitar riffs all finished off with the involving vocals of Oldham Jr. For this first reissue, Dark Entries have added two bonus instrumental cuts alongside the original which makes it an essential addition to the ranks of any new wave lover's shelves.

Six years after initial release, this reissue sounds as vital as ever and is extra DJ-friendly given that it is spread across two slabs of wax. It covers plenty of ground from escapist tropical ambient to lovably lazy dubs via vivid disco-funk. Highlights come in the form of "Molten Lava" and its heart wrenching vocals and the gospel grooves of "The Creator Has A Master Plan". Winter might be fast approaching, but so long as you have sounds as warm and sunny as these around, summer will never feel too far away.

Review: Given his impeccable downtempo credentials, you'd expect Bonobo's Late Night Tales mix to be one of the finer installments in the series (and that's saying something). Predictably, it is. Sweet, sensual and atmospheric, with plenty of unlikely gems and forgotten classics for the heads to enjoy, it surprises and impresses with each successive track. This vinyl edition features 17 of the tracks unmixed (naturally) and lifts out many highlights. His own cover of Donovan's "Get Thy Bearings" is particularly revelatory - string drenched, hazy, atmospheric and, of course, immaculately produced - but there are many other gems. Check Darondo's classic heart breaker "Didn't I," the smoky reggae-soul of Nina Simone's "Baltimore", and the enveloping intimacy of Shlohmo's "Places". Do seek out Benny Cumberbatch's spoken word turn at the end too! (mp3 download code for the full release included).

Review: In Colour is of course the long awaited debut solo album from The xx's in-house knob twiddler Jamie 'xx' Smith, arriving through regular home Young Turks backed with a whole host of guest appearances. The more obsessive Jamie xx fans out there (of which we wager there are many) will no doubt already have burned out their laptops and retinas basking in the all too colourful pre-release streams of In Colour, but it's always nice to grip an album in your hands. The eleven tracks on In Colours come across like a low key ode to the rave from Jamie and pals, with Four Tet, Romy & Oli xx, Young Thug and Popcaan featuring, and yes there is also plenty of steel pan. "Hold Tight", which sounds like Jamie's attempt at forest techno, is a definite highlight! Young Turks have popped in a CD edition of the album too.

Review: Following 2014's When The World Was One, Halsall and the Gondwana collective continue their spiritual jazz adventure with another immaculate narrative. Now with much more vocal prowess, singer Josephine Oniyama plays a lead role in the story, adding consistency and personality to the Halsall's swooning, cinematic odysseys. Highlights include the Hathaway-style half spoken/half sung "Badder Weather", the frenetic double bass and brushed drum crescendos of "The Land Of", the (lark) ascending strings and oriental scales of "Cushendun" and the smoky, faraway Coltraneisms of the title track. Modern jazz doesn't get any more authentic than this.

Review: It's taken a while, but Philophon chief (and in-house producer) Max Weissenfeldt has finally managed to finish the album he started working on with Ghanaian Frafra-gospel singers Alogte Oho & His Sounds Of Joy. It's a set that has been promised for the best part of five years, so it's fantastic to see it finally materialize. Musically, it explores similar sonic territory to Oho's previous singles on Philophon (all of which featured music from Weissenfeldt), effortlessly joining the dots between traditional Ghanaian styles, local interpretations of funk and soul, dub-wise reggae rhythms and occasional nods towards contemporary electronic beats. The results are superb, making this a must have for those who love a bit of West African musical positivity.
