Review: Brownswood Bubblers provides a platform for unsung heroes and emerging talent from the Worldwide underground. The series distills the stream of exciting new artists that have become semi-permanent fixtures in Gilles' playlists and DJ sets of late to create a suite of perfect bumps.The compilation is now in its twelfth release and there's some real gems on this edition: just some of the highlights are: the soothing inner city blues of Selbeyone's "Are You In Peace?", Kathy Hoskins and the legendary Paul Randolph's magical soul excursion "Could You Be Me?" (channeling the vibe of Roy Ayers' Ramp project) or The Pendletons with the wonderful "Gotta Get Out" which will give you your funky acid nu-jazz fix, for sure.

Review: When it comes to making drum and bass that strikes a balance between the needs of DJs and home listeners, few are better than Dominick Martin AKA Calibre. It's for this reason that the album format suits him so well. The Deep, his 12th full-length in total, could well be his best set yet. Jam-packed with effortlessly soulful moments, evocative piano flourishes, rich live instrumentation and yearning vocals, it's a far more expansive and ambitious set than most D&B albums. It also supplements his trademark, club-ready rollers with tracks that look to modern soul, jazz breaks, dub and R&B for inspiration. Throughout, Martin barely puts a foot wrong, delivering a set that more than stands up to repeat listens.

Review: The Cold Busted imprint's got mad skillz at scouting out the best new talent for their catalogue, always feverishly sticking to their nu-school wave of all things jazz-related. In a sense, this is the perfect outlet for all those'jazz-dance' heads who spend the majority of their time digging up curious B-sides in the hope of finding some groove in their lives! Andyfellaz is a new name on the block but it feels like the artist has been making music for some time, as his style of sampling and looping feels both fresh and a little bit over on the left of field. Tunes like "Just One More Time" showcase the man's clear passion for raw, hazy jazz basements, while others like "Luna Roja" play a delightfully lounge mood that will fit here, there and everywhere. Perfect for your mid-morning Balearic deviations, too!

Review: More regularly found on the Pig Balls label, Pulpfusion here releases Funk Never Sleeps via BPR. The title track is a slap bass funk rock spectacular featuring Morris Chestnut, Lorenzo Medici and someone called Jim. Remixer Jayl Funk also rocks up to take the tune downtown to cool, retro New York block party. Elsewhere "The Beat Inside My Soul" is steamy, rolling 60s mod funk jam, given a party friendly electro-swing makeover by DJ Maars and turned into party breaks territory by Rory Hoy. Extra party breaks ammo can also be found in bonus cuts "Beat The Clock" and "Feeling The Blues".

Review: Invisible City Editions have a deserved reputation for unearthing and reissuing genuinely overlooked gems. Oluko Imo's "Praise Jah" is arguably a little better known than some of their releases, having become a sought after item amongst collectors of off-kilter Caribbean disco. Trindadian Imo recorded it in 1978 following a move to New York, and it offers a brilliantly far-sighted combination of soca-disco and the kind of bubbling analogue synthesizer electronics that pre-date the Chicago acid movement by six years or so. Choose between the vocal mix, which boasts a fine lead vocal from Imo alongside celebratory female backing vocals, and an instrumental that gives every musical element space to breath. The jammed-out electric piano solos and intergalactic electronics are particularly thrilling.

from $1.93
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: Ok folks, it's a new Bomb Strikes release, you should all know the drill by now. Yep, it's all about party friendly breaks and mash-ups here, so leave your arty pretensions at the door, thank you very much. Here we have two self-professed 'funkmasters', Prosper and the suggestively titled Stabfinger hooking up for three sizzling jams. The title track mixes brassy big beat and daisy age rap, whilst "Don't Hold Back" is pure hands-in-the-air poppy electro funk before "Baby Baby Please" wraps it all up nicely with an infectious fusion of electro-swing, rap and cumbia beats.

Review: Since making his debut in the mid noughties - some 15 years after he began making beats -Ibiza-based Guts has developed his sound somewhat. Where his early releases doffed a cap to classic trip-hop and downtempo grooves, recent outings have effortlessly joined the dots between live funk, golden era hip-hop and modern soul, with some notable jazz and Latin American influences thrown in. Eternal, his latest full-length, continues this approach, throwing in additional nods to P-funk (the superb "Give You Up"), nu-jazz ("Incomplete"), and Afrobeat ("Dance, Love & Die"). With a string of guest musicians, singers and rappers lending a hand, Eternal is a vibrant, thrill-a-minute album that shows off the full range of Guts' finely honed skills.

Review: Nocturnal Activity was released by Mark Rae on Manchester's Grand Central Records, an independent record label back in 2002. It is a remix album, composed of alternative mixes of the tracks from the Sleepwalking LP, plus one new track, a cover version of the Parliament track "Flashlight". It contains some of the labels most sought after tracks. For the dancefloor, The Nextmen remix of "It Aint Nothin Like" is considered a classic. Atjazz turns in a magical remix with Kate Rogers on "Not Just Anybody". Groove Armada went on a weekend break to a country house to flip the Pharcyde's Booty Brown on "Let It Go". However the best is left to last with the fully acoustic version of "Get A Life" with soul legend Bobby Womack.

Review: Fresh from the runaway success of his Yussef Kamaal project with Yussef Dayes, Henry Wu returns to Eglo Records for the first time since 2015. While it's jazzy broken beat opener "Deep In The Mudd" - co-produced by Hardhouse Banton - that's naturally getting most attention, there's plenty to get excited about elsewhere on the EP. Check, for example, the hissing jazz of "Boards & Skins", Kaidi Tatham's deep, sparkling and effortlessly soulful re-make of "Just Negotiate", and the ultra-deep, Rhodes-laden bliss of "Reflections", a beat-less treat. Also worth checking is the EP's other Hardhouse Banton hook-up, "Century", which charges off on a high-tempo, mutant P-funk tip.

Review: Greece's Quincy Jointz selects the sixth volume of his concept Lime Sorbet compilation. Lime Sorbet was always the compilation series for open minded music fans and so is also volume six. From sunshine vibes, funky grooves and breakbeat through to house or downbeat. Once again Quincy selects a special mixture of unreleased music by well-known and upcoming artists. Block rockin' beats courtesy of Valique with "Long Journey" (Quincy Jointz remix) will sort you for deep funk, cheeky crooner Louie Austen is back since the electroclash days with the sleazy soul of of "Make You Move" (Quincy Jointz remix) and Stuttgart's Tobe Tronic serves up the deep, breaks driven nu-disco of "Night Drums".

Review: Having 'done their thing' so successfully last year with their debut album, Moneyshot and Rackabeats stride into 2017 with their targets set on another LP. The trip starts here with the seasonally-timed hip-swaying party jam. "Love That I'm In" purrs with sultry vocals, flexed with rippled lyricism from long-time compadre Andy Cooper and laid back funk guitar/bass groove. Silky, sunny, catchy.. The Allergies continue to deliver some serious gold.

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: Electro-swing. Done to death right? Wrong! Bristol's Extra Medium almost uniquely takes samples of similar 1920s and '30s jazz age ditties that everybody does but fuses them with a very British bass sound. Here we get served five sizzling jams to loose or s**t to. Highlights include the antique Mediterranean grooves of "Beatnik Boogie", brought up to date with some killer UK bass attitude, the thumping staccato wobble of "Stop The Moon" and the accelerated sing-along garagey break-step of "Troublesome".

Review: As foretold by fiery 45 last month, Tanika Charles delivers her soul-stacked debut album. Gutsy, energetic and backed by a tight act, Tanika has the scope and space to explore the full soul spectrum; the thumping upbeat twister "Soul Run", the swooning doo-wap of "More Than A Man" and gospel-inspired delivery of R&B strutter "Money" and heart-stopping vocal peaks and troughs of the cosmic blues ballad "Heavy" are just a few of the highlights on this highly accomplished debut album.

Review: Here we have a real meeting of minds with the esteemed re-edit label Gamm recruiting Glasgow's very own nu-disco veteran Al Kent to serve up some more of his fine work for our listening pleasure. There are just two cuts featured here, but who needs quantity when you can have quality, eh? "So Good" sees a sultry seductress heavily breathe her words over a smouldering Love Hangover-style twanging groove. "Victorious" meanwhile incorporates 70s disco rock, over-excited clavinets and bongos galore. Heavy-duty boogie vibes!

Review: Craig Charles is many things to many people - to some he's Dave Lister in Red Dwarf, to others he is the guy with class A's and jazz mags in the back of a taxi and to others he's one of the UK's finest soul DJs. Here we find him in the latter role, thankfully, introducing us to his fourth annual Funk & Soul Club collection. This time he presents 19 soulful gems. Highlights include the Chaka Khan-style "Family Tree" by Kylie Auldist, The Traffic's bombastic and brassy cover of "White Lines" and the effervescent 1960s soul homage "Next Time" by The Tibbs.

Review: Black cotton: the racy yin to white mink's raunchy yang, Freshly Squeezed squeeze into their slinkiest number and lay down five more unabashed versions on classic speak easy standards. Highlights include the insane energy and juicy funk of Wolfgang & Louie's "Puttin' On The Ritz", the floor-burning D&B mischief of Mista Trick's "Swinging All Day" and the sudden switch into an almost rocky stomp on Pisk's "One Steady Roll". Teases and pleasers with nothing but authentic instrumentation and preemo prohibition party vibes.

Review: Music From Memory has a reputation for doing the unexpected. It would be fair to say that few would have predicted the Dutch label's decision to release a collection "electronic and contemporary music from Brazil". As usual, the Red Light Records affiliated crate-digging crew has done a superb job with Outro Tempo, which was compiled by label affiliate John Gomez. Musically, it's predictably varied but always beautiful. It mostly focuses on tracks that fuse traditional Brazilian instrumentation, percussion and musical ideas, with elements of electronica, ambient, jazz-fusion and Reich style minimalism. The accompanying liner notes do a great job in putting the collection in context, explaining how the music was often inspired by political changes within Brazil during the 1980s.

Review: Having tantalised us with his debut retweaks on Chopshop one year ago, the mysterious DJ "S" is back with two more gems for our listening pleasure. The vibes here though are a little less disco and veer more towards the soulful and funky end of the 70s spectrum. "You're What's Missing In My Life" features a killer backbeat, chiming retro production, Philly strings and seductive Marvin-style vocals. On the digital flip we get the brass and piano lament "Let's Straighten It Out", where a croaky voiced dude tries his best to get his end way with his sulking, unimpressed partner.

Review: David Hanke is a man known for his wild and illustrious array of aliases. Through the years, he's appeared under the names Black Soyls, Madball Scientists, Mankoora and Rengades Of Jazz, among many others. Dem Juju Poets is his latest creation and, needless to say, it is perhaps his most accomplished and mature project to date. We don't want to take anything away from his previous productions but there's just something utterly fluid about this latest reincarnation. Matasuna is the new label to launch this new Liberated Thoughts album, and we're sure this will go down a storm with all the jazz-funk crew, particularly the followers of Giles Peterson's DJ sound. Hanke's approach is playful and diverse, branching out into all sorts of jazzy vibrations that are tied together by funky, off-kilter outernational vibes. Plenty of breaks, bass bumps, and party moves for all sorts of vinyl playaz - oh boy, check those horns on the masterful "People's Republic"!

Review: G.A.M.M's man in Paris, Young Pulse, is a talented chap. His periodic re-edit releases on the long-serving Swedish label have been amongst the most impressive rework-heavy EPs of recent years. Volume 4 is a little less expansive than usual, boasting just two cuts; happily, though, both are superb. "Everybody, Free Your Body" is a soaring, spiraling rearrangement and extension of The Dells largely overlooked 1977 album cut "Get On Down", which sounds like the stuff memorable midnight moments are made of. On the virtual flipside you'll find the similarly soulful and funk-fuelled "Don't YouKnow, Baby", a superb straightening out and subtle beef-up of L.T.D's 1980 jam "Don'tcha Know".

Review: Given that it was originally released on vinyl and CD way back in 2000, it's something of a surprise to find that this is the first digital download release of Theo Parrish's acclaimed sophomore set. It remains a benchmark in the Detroit legend's fine career and arguably the set in which he fully realized his unique musical vision (think cut-up and manipulated samples, major jazz influences, and hypnotic, stretched-out cuts that quietly build throughout). Highlights are plentiful, from the deep Afro-house of "Serengeti Echoes" and leisurely, slipped jazz warmth of "Summertime Is Here", to the almost Balearic brilliance of the suitably epic and saucer-eyed "Violet Green".

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.

Review: Mark Ronson can keep his Uptown Funk pastiche, because DJ Inko is here with some of the original stuff. "Big Brawl" features rolling bass and tight Prince-like guitar licks, "Alley Cat" fuses disco house with vintage clavinet driven boogie, "Buzzer" boasts bass of the elastic variety and wah-wah guitar overload for some flares-flappin' action and finally "Pusherman" adds some electronic funk to mix for real dancefloor demolition. Mark who, again?

Review: The second version instalment that explores Kuti student Sosimi's 2015 album You No Fit Touch Am, Wah Wah have recruited more innovators to take fresh perspectives on Dele's crisp Afrobeat. DJ Khalab mirrors the guitars with rising synth textures that sit subtly in the background adding more tension that's released with a brilliant blunt bass hook. O Flynn adds just a little dubby disco charm to "E Go Betta" while Books gives "I Don't Care" a serious twist as it intros with swooshing Hidden Orchestra style breaks before dipping into a chugging house stomp. Bopperson closes on a slow smouldering note, creating more space around the Dele's beautiful instrumentation. Refixes fit to touch.

Review: On his second album, Colombian Party, Sunka succeeds where so many others have failed and unites electronic music with south American influences. In this process, he works seamlessly with a range of collaborators. On the bass-heavy title track, he weaves the rude vocals of Raspapulaman into the bouncy groove, while "Bajo La Luna" is more reflective as Marlen Obregon's hypnotizing tones unfold over mournful brass and tom-toms. In the main though, this is a celebratory affair, and Sunka brings a party mood to the Latino hip-hop of "Lo Que Suena" - which features Kartel Pacifico on vocals - as well as the good time, party house of "Amaneciendo".

Review: Joey Negro's Z Records have a remarkable knack for knocking out vintage compilation after vintage compilation. Here though, they've really discovered a rare niche of unmined gold courtesy of Nuphonic's David Hill who acts as selector. As Hill explains "gospel music has often followed trends in secular music" and this album captures 24 attempts of gospel getting on the disco and boogie trains. Highlights include the hiNRG longing of "I Need You", the electro-soul of "Love Is The Message" and the piano & strings frenzy of "Awake O Zion".

Review: Given the infamous depth of Nick The Record's vinyl collection, you'd expect this contribution to Z Records' excellent Under The Influence series to be packed to the rafters with unheralded gems. Predictably, it is, delivering 22 cuts that should be thrillingly new to all but the most dusty-fingered collectors. Picking out highlights from such an excellent and in-depth collection is tough, but try the steel drums-laden celebration of Boogsie's "Can't You See Me", the synth-laden jazz-funk badness of "Keep Your Shoes" by MC and His Great Googa-Moogas, and the fizzing, melody-rich 808 electro of Ronnie Jones "Video Games". If that's not enough there's also a swathe of DJ-friendly re-edits from Nick himself.

Review: We've noticed that it's always a special surprise from France's Versatile, and more so in the last few years since the label has truly began to diversify into countless genres, themes, and acoustic selections. This time we have a more worldly release from Gilb'R and the rest of the crew, one which sees the label boss team up with Abu Sayah and King Ghazi for "Houran", an Eastern meditative swarmer with a deeply mystical air running through its pipes. The dance aspect comes through the remixes: Gilb'R himself adds a bundle of drums and sequenced bass to the Middle-Eastern acoustics of "Shamaleh", Versatile veteran I:Cube spins "Houran" into a brooding techno slitherer, while SEX TAGS kingpin DJ SO-PHAT reinterprets the same tune under a much stringer dose of opiates. The uncredited dub version adds extra juice to an already sublime release. So very much recommended!

Played by: Renegades Of Jazz
Review: This London based band has risen in profile steadily since they broke onto the scene a couple of years ago with their critically acclaimed debut album entitled Nothing Is Easy. They've established themselves both at home and on the continent with a combination of a tireless touring schedules and prolific writing periods that sees them having completed album number three in as many years. As before, this new album once again sees them refresh their sound with a new set of influences and direction. Always unafraid to push the boundaries of their craft, this release unashamedly emanates jazz, afrobeat and psychedelia which galvanises the soul and R&B that remains at the core of the band's sound.
