Review: London's Aroop Roy is back, This guy has won acclaim from the who's who of the industry such as Gilles Peterson and Rainer Truby and his music fuses afro (such as on the hands in the air party vibe of "Ifa" that's reminiscent of Fela Kuti vibes), funk (the disco funk soul excursion on "Manuman") and into house like on the spiritual NYC vibe of Um Trago" that's calling to mind classic Joe Claussell and Kerri Chandler. And we're really digging it!

Review: On this sumptuous Juno Download exclusive, bearded soul boy Aroop Roy's smooth Nomadic Soul album gets a good going over from a wide range of like-minded artists. There's a variety of soul-flecked moods and grooves represented, from warm deep house, snappy nu-jazz and slick modern soul to wonky hip-hop, and speaker-bothering bruk. The standard of remixes is largely high throughout, with a smattering of real stand-outs. Check, in particular, the heavy late night dancefloor vibes of Greymatter's strutting mix of "I'd Die For You", the rolling, near-anthemic broken beats of Yellowtail and Simbad's sparkling efforts, and the Domu-ish wooziness of Cone's rub of "Lily".

Review: Aroop Roy - London based soul boy 'of many dimensions' - has been pretty silent for nearly a year. Perhaps he just went on holiday in some exotic far-flung dimension, but he's back now, all guns blazing. Brazil Breakdown Part 2 features three spicy cuts of feverish retro Latin funk, all boasting irresistible beach party grooves and seductively catchy vocals.

Review: Slowly dipping his toe back into the water of single releases, we now have yet another two new "Reworks" from the London soul boy who had, up to recently, been silent for months. He's continuing to maintain the quality too, with 'Wake Up" being a hypnotically accelerated basement funk fever-jam and "First Time Around" being eight minutes of uber-slick, hazy glamour funk.

Review: Aroop delivers the third instalment of his "Brazil Breakdown" series with three of his floor-fired reworks to date. "Brilhantina" is a percussion-heavy slice of four-to-the-floor soul with synths straight out of the Detroit playbook. "Quem Vai Querer" ups the ante with a juicy bottom end (think mid 00's Yam Who), feel-good chants and a conga roll so hypnotic you'll be shaking your hips for hours. Finally we hit "O Mestre"; rich in warm reverbed synths and coated with a pristine-polished 80s soul vocal, this will work well on both sides of the night. Honey coated warm up or an emotional finale.

Review: Aroop Roy is a producer, singer and multi-instrumentalist originally from the UK and now residing in Tokyo. Be prepared for one well funky and soul infused journey on "Talkin Bout Life" which is perfect to bring in the summer of 2017. Funky elements, a serious horns section and strong vocals hold up this brilliant track. It's a more straight ahead deep house affair on the rather evocative "We Together" and actually its the kind of track you could imagine Derrick May or Dixon playing out; there are definitely elements of 'hi-tech soul' in it. The Brisa remix of Talkin Bout Life" on the flip is a worthy addition also.

Review: Londoner Aroop Roy describes himself as an "artist and producer of many dimensions". In the past we've tended to call him a 'bearded soul boy". Anyway one thing that's true is that this guy sure knows how to blend Afro, soul, jazz and funk. This is his first release since album Nomadic Soul a few years ago and it sees the man tackle two of his favourite Brazilian tunes in his inimitable style. More please!
