Review: From Cuba, Mala heads south for another mystic adventure in international cross-pollination on Mirrors, the Deep Medi man's latest LP-length bubbler for Brownswood. Fusing inspirations, energies, talents and techniques from Peru - and working with some of the country's most respected musicians - it's another immersive body of work that genuinely sounds like no other. From the pensive tribal march of "Cusco Street Scene" to the shimmering twangs and dusty, languid claps of "Zapateo" by way of demented insistency of "Looney" and the muddy cosmic textures of "The Calling", Mala has once again immersed himself so deeply into a culture and musical discourse that he not only speaks it fluently but has added to its rich vernacular. Vinyl was invented for albums like this.

Review: Featurecast has been dabbling in groove and funk for quite a while now. Matter of fact, in his own words he has been on a mission to "funk his way across the globe with his own brand of.. mid-tempo Breaks, Hip-Hop, Funk, D&B and downright dirty Bass together in his own remarkable way". The Shout It Out LP comes courtesy of the UK's funkiest dance label Jalapeno. Highlights include the hip-hop/heavy metal crossover of "Shout It Out" featuring Illvis Freshly's killer rhyming, the electro infused breaks of "No One Left" featuring Greg Blackman's soulful vocals and the funky block rocking beats of "What You Want" featuring the mad skills of Pugs Atomz, Wes Restless & Ill Legit.

Review: US spoken word don Rich Medina is usually seen releasing a downtempo strain of hip-hop that branches out into more soulful territories, but BBE have snapped him up to take control of their latest compilation, this being number one in the new Jump 'n' Funk series. Tropical-flavoured funk would be the best way to give you a snapshot of this glorious collection of music, ranging from rare afrobeat to newer, more contemporary broken beat rhythms, but in reality this is simply a wonderful vibe placed under one roof. Inside, you'll find everything from drumming legend Tony Allen, to Fela Kuti, Tweak, Jungle By Night, and plenty more dance-friendly artists. Warmly recommended, and afro comp of the week from us!

from $1.97
Review: Basel-based trio Alma Negra has enjoyed a productive 2014, with their remixes and reworks of little-known Haitian and African jams appearing on Highlife Edits and Sorfrito. Here they deliver their first EP - a superb collection of edits laden with voodoo drums, dense percussion and tribal intent. Opener "Mao Negra" is particularly potent, and features a solid - but subtle - house kick-drum below all manner of loose and energetic African percussion and traditional chants. The more uptempo "Messa" is, if anything, even heavier - check the rubbery bassline and woozy chanting - while "Tribal Echoes" is the sort of darkroom deep house/African rhythms hybrid that you'd expect to hear on Huntleys & Palmers. Spellbinding stuff.

Uptempo Cruise (Acoustic mix) - (4:47) 116 BPM
from $1.97
Review: George Kelly's most recent appearance on his Our Records label was something of a slick, soulful treat, with vocalist Andre Esput lending his honeyed tonsils to a pair of luscious nu-boogie gems. "Uptempo Cruise" is an altogether different beast. The "Club Version" is warm, rich and melodious, with Kelly peppering a shuffling nu-disco groove with jammed-out Rhodes keys, dreamy chords and undulating, acid-style electronics. The Grecian DJ/producer completely flips the script on the "Acoustic Mix", retaining the Rhodes lines but replacing the electronic groove with fantastic, Bossa-influenced live drums. This replacement rhythm gives the track a breezy, summer-fresh feel that's wholly in keeping with Kelly's hazy keys.

Played by: Asta Hiroki
Review: Sizzlingly hot UK label Jalepeno's latest signing is Brighton based producer-slash-intelligent-sound-designer, Asta Hiroki. The Balance EP is Hiroki's debut effort and features four tracks heavily indebted to Teebs, James Blake and Flying Lotus. Two tracks features the silky vocals of Kathrin deBoer (Tru Thoughts) - the sensuously orchestrated acoustic-lead "Her Image In Focus" and the loose and loungey "Hold Tight". Elsewhere we get the 90s-style hazily broken dub-out "Beatrice" and the ethereal loops of the almost vanished "Most & Least". Quality stuff.

from $1.97
Review: Canada's premiere afro-Latin fusionists Souljazz Orchestra return with their ninth album, Resistance, which arrives a decade after they first announced themselves to the world with the dazzling debut Uprooted. That album was issued on their own Funk Manchu Records, but the collective are firmly within the Strut Records bosom these days with Resistance their fourth album for the UK stronghold. Never a band to tread water, this 10 track collection finds the Souljazz Orchestra exploring new territory on record, explicitly the French Caribbean and Francophone West African influences that have been key to the band from their earliest days. What's most impressive here is the band's sheer versatility with saxman Ray Murray, percussionist Marielle Rivard, drummer Philippe Lafreniere and keyboardist Pierre Chretien all taking on lead vocal duties as Resistance progresses.

Feel Free (Scruff's 12" re-tweak) - (7:27) 66 BPM
from $1.97
Review: Mr Scruff's Friendly Bacteria album was something of a return to form; a sprawling, soul-flecked concoction full of broken beat, jazz, dub and classic house influences. Here, two of the album's highlights get the remix treatment. On the A, "We Are Coming" - a bumpin', basement-bothering bruk cut in its' original form - is turned into a warm and wide-eyed deep house shuffler by Berlin-based Max Graef. It's an excellent revision, which weaves the original samples and keys into a fuzzy, analogue-sounding groover. On the flip, Scruff himself extends and reworks "Feel Free", turning in a hazy nu-jazz rub built around rubbery double bass and snaking, muted horns.

Review: There's no doubt that Berliner's Max Graef and Glenn Astro are some of the biggest success stories to emerge from the deep house sound and creating their own signature style that's often copied of late, but seldom ever matched! Sure, the dusty hip-hop inspired jams are no doubt indebted to Detroit legends such as Theo Parrish or Andres but they've certainly put their own slant on it and created a new sound for the German capital to be synonymous with. Testament to their success is this LP for the legendary Ninja Tune; The Yard Work Simulator. Nearly a dozen tracks of chilled, sampledelic, MPC driven dope jams that are the perfect soundtrack for a misspent youth in Berlin this Summer. In particular check the raggedy junkyard joint that is "Where Fuck Are My Hard Boiled Eggs" or the psychedelic urban soul jam that is the title track.

Review: Rumours that party producer Tom Booze records everything whilst completely hammered are yet to be confirmed. However one listen to his latest, the Get Fonky EP, and you'd be forgiven for believing them. This is no bad thing as both tracks here, "You Had It All" and "Get Fonky With It", both posses a certainly woozy, slo-mo charm. The former sees a delicious early 80s boogie jam grind along at 55 bpm, whilst the latter sees classic bloc rockin', anthem-mongering marry some lazy breaks for some classic p-funk party vibes.

Review: British rapper Funky DL is Naphta Newman is a producer based in Hackney, London. He also runs his own label, Washington Classics which is a fitting home for For The Love Of Jazz & Thursdays: Instrumentals. A huge body of work comprising nearly two dozen tracks of the smoothest, blunted, sampledelic soul-jazz beat excursions. Whether it's Thursday or Sunday, all these jams are a perfect soundtrack for the good life. We particularly enjoyed the chilled out dope beat of "Love Sunshine" with that dreamy Rhodes and harp, the funky and feelgood "Good Days Will Come" and the smooth and sexy R&B on "Sky Blue". A wonderful body of work.

Review: Croatia's Funky Destination (aka Vladimir Sivic) has made a big splash on the funky breaks scene appearing on a variety of well renowned labels. However, the honour releasing his new long player, Supersonic Bomb, has fallen on the mighty Timewarp. Normally known for their nu-disco sound, the Grecian label has taken a chance on these 16 organic funk jams, and it's paid off! Highlights include the bubblin' piano boogie of "Getting Higher", the luxuriously silky "Eternal Light" and the fuzzy, breaky, disco house of "Get Up".

Review: Italian duo Nu Guinea has previously proved adept at creating humid, sultry deep house and tropical-infused electronics. Here, they focus a little more on the latter with a concept album based around the distinctive Afrobeat rhythms of legendary drummer Tony Allen. With his blessing, and that of the Comet label on which he's been releasing since the 1980s, the Early Sounds Recordings pair has cut-up and re-constructed Allen's drums, combining them with their own steamy electronics, vintage synthesizer lines and classic drum machines. It's an intoxicating and hugely entertaining blend that sits somewhere between their previous outings, Danny Wolfers' material under the Nacho Patrol guise, and the dreamy late '80s/early '90s work of forgotten Italian producer Mr Marvin.

Review: For over two decades Jeff Parker (Tortoise) has been Chicago's go-to guy in all matters experimental jazz. His distinct fretwork can be heard on zillions of recordings but surprisingly he's only released five solos albums, and only two since 2005. However a recent relocation to Los Angeles prompted Parker to explore the city's killer fusion scene, awaking his creative juices in the process. This resulted in the New Breed album, recorded with Paul Bryan (Aimee Mann, Meshell Ndegeocello), Josh Johnson (Thelonious Monk Institute protege) and Jamire Williams, and woven together with beats and samples for his most personal work yet.

Review: GAMM welcome a new face into the fold in the shape of Stockholm's Seegweed, who aptly demonstrates his panache for the edit on some classic jams. First up, Seegweed drops a subtle take on Angela Bofill's Stylistics cover, clearly not wanting to mess with a classic like "People Make The World Go Round". Deft percussive touches and some bottom end embellishment are added to the core which takes full effect on the midpoint break. Up next, the jazz funk break delight of Ben Sidran's "About Love" gets the subtle Seegweed treatment, and he does a neat job of extending out the sweetness that is Sly & The Family Stone's "Family Affair".

Review: Amazingly, it's 25 years since George 'E.A.S.E' Evelyn and then production partner Kevin 'Boy Wonder' Harper sat down and recorded "Dextrous", their monstrous, bleep-era classic on Warp. A quarter of a century later, Evelyn is still going strong, though the grooves have mellowed a lot in that time. Here, Warp celebrate the producer's epic career with a much-deserved retrospective. All the familiar favourites are present, from the rush-inducing thrill of early dancefloor smashers "I'm For Real" and "Aftermath", to the sinewy downtempo goodness of the decidedly Balearic "Les Nuits", the blazed hip-hop dub of "195 Llbs" and stoner soul of "70s 80s". This version also includes a number of exclusive remixes, with names like JD Twitch, Special Request, LFO, Morgan Geist and Loco Dice putting their own spin on this classic material.

Review: When you think of crate digging, it's pretty normal to assume it's all about the 12"s. Well professional diggers Strictly Breaks are here to show us different, with the latest installment of the Dusty Fingers series concentrating on good old 45 RPM singles. There are six rare cuts here, none of which lasting much more than three minutes. But you can fit a lot of funk into that short time, and the boogie rock of "Sweet Love", the portentous analogue synth epic "Escapade" and electro-squelch of "Get Up" are just a few of the many highlights.

Review: 'Australia's hardest hitting Hammond Organ Trio', Cookin' On 3 Burners, are on the eve of marking their 20th anniversary. They've been quiet since smash 2014 album Blind Bet, but here they begin the lead up to said milestone with a re-release of 2009 iTunes RnB Chart number one, 'This Girl'. The track was recently reworked into a pumping house hit thanks to Kungs, but here we get the more melancholic original. Boasting a slow, vintage 1960s soul sound and a vocal tour de force from Kylie Auldist, this tear-jerking version is still guaranteed to tug at your heartstrings.

Review: Alert: another Actual Sounds release has arrived! New school nu-skool breaks, if there ever was such a thing! These guys are not messing around and here's why: They start off with a block rockin' remix of "Twist & Shout", "Cypress Pills" is, well... But wait there is more: "2Pac Wine" is a mashup on "Red Red Wine" and a rap by the late great rapper. Elsewhere "Get Your Hold On" mashes up in style again merging Missy Elliot and Kanye, "Love The Police" samples N.W.A. over some fierce Meat Katie style breaks and we'd best not forget "Buttersweet Symphony" which samples 'that' famous track by The Verve over some more fierce breakbeats for U.K. dancefloors. The definitive party starter!

Review: The first of two big edit releases from Resense: Titanic Bristol funk from the infrequent partnership of Monkey Boxing's Mako and serial editor Mr Bristow: "King Soul-omon's Mine" takes a cover of heavily-sampled, well-known Lee Dorsey/Allen Toussaint gem and adds a subtle contemporary swing. Flip for a full band breakdown over a pristine break as "Sock It Silly" strips down the science of every funk tune ever. Vinyl-only; this one's a keeper.

Review: An anonymous collective comprising of various members of the Breakerz Banquet roster, the Breakerz Allstarz also deliver the best of the label has to offer. Here they kick start the year with the direct, "Punani Pounder", a rolling flute-a-thon, before we hit the boomy bass, loose grooves and sparse stabs of "Face Off". "Russian Roulette" combines 80s soviet samples with 90s big beat and finally "Doin Ruin" wraps it all up with some killer hip-house. Boom!

Review: Here we have the first fruits of a truly unusual collaboration between Italian 'Afro-Futurist beatmaker' Khalab and revered Malian musician and Griot, Baba Sissoko. Culled from their forthcoming eponymous LP, "Kumu" is a remarkable slice of haunting minimal house complete with ethereal effects, the beguiling West African vocals and what sounds like the bath left running in the background. Harmonious Theolonius provides possibly the most sensitive remix ever by gently increasing the trippiness. The beatless "Tatu" is all about plucked atmospherics, whilst the Ibibio Sound Machine's synth-funk rework relocates the tune to mid-80s Miami. Special stuff.
