Review: Parisian producer Blundetto (the man behind French radio station Radio Nova no less) is back with his third album, World Of. Further pursuing his love of soulful reggae, cinematic scores, and Latin and Afro beats, he's invited some French reggae heroes (Biga Ranx or PupaJim), a New York MC (Jahdan Blakamoore) and new comers John Milk and Marina P to contribute to these rich and intoxicating 12 sizzling tracks. A producer who never lets us down.

Review: Blundetto is a Paris-dwelling producer with a fondness for both Afrobeat, soul & reggae and being a little mischievous (ever since being a child apparently). Here his playfulness extends to handing over his work to various producers in order that they might return them in newly altered states. It's a project that largely works, with particularly good bad versions being Roti's retro electro-isms on "Sunset Stroll", Dav***k's surreal and warped synth jam mix of "Mustang" and the deep retro house of Grooveman's 'spot version' of "Mi Condena".
Review: Happy birthday Heavenly Sweetness! 10 years deep into their explorations, excavations and curations, French label Heavenly Sweetness look back over the decade and hand pick some of their favourite moments. With such a fine ear for timelessness and vibe, the whole collection runs with a soul and spiritual fluidity as one cohesive body of work; from the incredible-yet-so-gradual momentum of Chickenwing All Stars "Celestial Blues" to touching homages to the one and only Coltrane from both Patchworks and Byard Lancaster via slick spacebound feminist hip-hop from Sly Johnson and a stacks more, this is the type of collection you can lose entire weeks of your life to. Here's to another 10 years.
