  6. Abase - "Fallen Statues" (5:56)
Review: Munich's Jazz & Milk label has now been releasing music for 15 years. As a result, founder Dusty is in a celebratory mood and has decided to offer-up this compilation style EP of previously unreleased treats from label artists old and new. Fusing organic and electronic instrumentation while fusing a myriad of interconnected styles, the EP's six tracks offer an excellent snapshot of the label's distinctive sound. Our picks include the sun-kissed Afro-South American fusion of Bongani Give Thanks' 'Indoda (African Reprise)', the bruk-up soul of Moe Fabrik's brilliant 'Sassy Boy', the intergalactic future soul shuffle of Steve Spacek's superb 'Do You Want My Love' and the sub-heavy Latin house percussion-fest that is Abase's excellent closing cut, 'Fallen Statues'.

  4. Luxury Motivation (5:51)
Review: Chaos In The CBD have quietly been building an impressive reputation for some time, with releases on Hot Haus, Amadeus and Needwant all hitting the spot. Here they transfer to Bradley Zero's Rhythm Section International with what's arguably their most mature and musically expansive EP to date. There's a decidedly dusty, eyes-closed deep house feel throughout, with hypnotic grooves laden with all manner of neat, often jazz inspired touches. This is perhaps most obvious on the St Germain style jazz-house goodness of "Observe" - all skipping cymbals, bouncy grooves and killer pianos - but can also be found on the deeper "Observe". It's there, too, on the lilting brilliance of "Midnight In Peckham" - think yearning trumpets and twinkling piano motifs - and the blissful "Luxury Motivation".

The Unofficial Edits & Overdubs Special Extended Versions Part Four Of Six

  3. The Kay-gees - "Tango In Space" (6:46)

Review: Joaquin Joe Claussell's Unofficial Edits & Overdubs Special Extended Versions series rolls on with a fourth of six parts. It's proven a real gold mine so far, with endless amounts of gospel tinged house and super spiritual grooves getting all who hear it to a high state of consciousness. There are plenty of jazzy overtones to the opener here, 'Come Sunday', which is laden with afro percussion and big horns. It's a steel drum affair on Pheeroan Aklaff 's 'L' that is brilliantly tropical, then there's trident funk from The Kay-gees and a lush bit of fusion from the ever excellent Leroy Hutson.

It features two singles from the album of the same name on a special transparent 7". All his veritable skills as a pianist and composer are on show as he links with bass player Andrea Lombardini and drummer Tommaso Cappellato. There are meditative melodies a la Sakamoto, soulful and playful chords and broken beat rhythms in the drums that all make this an expansive and life pair of standout singles from the master.

  1. Marylin (7:30)
  2. Farukx (6:34)
Review: Eglo continues to offer up choice reissues of killer cuts from the back catalogue of Sam Shepherd AKA Floating Points. The latest to get the treatment is 2011 12" Marilyn, which appeared at a time when Shepherd was just beginning to expand his sound palette following a few years of distinctively-swung deep house singles. The title track still boasts the distinctive, jammed-out synthesizer lead lines that were then a hallmark of his productions, as well as the shuffling house beats that we all love dearly, but also makes use of lots of extra percussion, Motor City-influenced chords and some sweet scat singing. Flipside 'Farukx' is a little more revolutionary, with the Eglo co-founder wrapping jazz-fired broken beats in drowsy chords, twinkling synth sounds and wavy female vocal snippets. Likethe A-side, it's one of Shepherd's best.

Guess What is a a transcontinental and interplanetary keys and drums duo who have been going on weird and wonderful musical trips since 2008. Here they link with Porest aka the legendary Mark Gergis, who is a frequent Sublime Frequencies collaborator. The two cuts here are laced with exotic keys and middle eastern melodies, shimmering organ sounds and loose percussive sounds that are from another world.

Review: Jarren hails from LA and brings plenty of the warmth and soul of that place to his music on this, the third rase from the already fine sounding Slices of A Dog. Mixing up deep house grooves, sultry sax from Jacob "JD" Crouch, oodles of g-funk and plenty of lush broken beats, this is a record that will bring heat to even the coldest winter night. Low-riding drums, cold analogue pops and hits and meandering top lines all take your mind away while the squelchy bass keeps your ass on the move. LA legend Bendek is the man bringing that on guitar, and label's co-founder Brothermartino on flutes also plays a key part.

Review: DJ crew Jazz 'N' Palms are probably best known for their association with Ronnie Scott's in London, where they can regularly be heard warming up for bands. Their new vinyl venture explores the more Balearic side of their musical personality, with EP one featuring re-edits of tracks often played poolside at Pikes Hotel in Ibiza. That means a mixture of languid, Pat Metheny-ish Mediterranean jazz-fusion ("Coastal Highway"), Latin-fired jazz-funk ("Going East"), sumptuous Rhodes-laden soundscapes ("Chica"), humid Afro-Cuban jazz ("1492"), afternoon-fresh Flamenco-jazz fusion ("St Martin"), and the kind of relaxed, louche fare that Bob James would probably enjoy ("Strings of Spring").

Review: Jazztronik is the free-form music project headed up by Japanese artist Ryota Nozaki. He has put out no fewer than 24 albums since his first in 1999, and in 2005 he put out Samurai. The lead single from that record now gets its own pressing treatment on hi son label and comes with two alternate versions. The original is a shiny, glossy and uplifting nu jazz tune with big broken beats and even big piano solos layered over the top. Some vocal ad libs add a contemporary edge and ensure the whole thing takes off. A more striped back Beats version will be perfect for more serous dancing and the Piano version does what it says on the tin.

Flip to over and you will be treated to one of the album's slower songs, the lovestruck 'Summer Girl' which is as laid back and warm as an afternoon in the park taking in some rays.

Review: California Soul queen Tiombe Lockhart returns to Mother Tongue with a special follow up to her The Aquarius Years album. Both tracks get special remix treatment, first up it is jazz man Christian Scoot who serves up a super pained, late night and spiritual remix where the beats are heavy hearted and the sax beautifully tragic. Intergalactic ace Carlos Nino then works with Nate Mercereau & Jamael Dean on the flip to make the tune into a steamy and sensuous neo-soul lullaby. The vocal harmonies are enough to send shivers down your spine.

  5. Trouble In Paradise (3:09)
Review: Applied Arts party promoter and Cashmere Radio co-founder Ed Longo has spent much of the last 12 months criss-crossing Europe for recording sessions with a wide array of jazz-leaning musicians. The result is "The Other Fantasy", a debut mini-album that's said to be, "conceptualized around the quest for otherness in the schizophrenia of the digital age". Regardless of the concept, the resultant music is rarely less than magical, with Longo and his collaborators effortlessly joining the dots between jazz-funk, fusion, boogie and '80s soul. Highlights are plentiful, from the Dayton style early '80s jazz-funk perfection of "Love On The Line" and drowsy new age ambient/jazz fusion of "Arcadian Dream", to the synthesizer-powered '80s smoothness of "A Palm In The Closet" and horizontal bliss of "Trouble In Paradise".

Review: Daniel Maunick continues on the theme of his debut album Macumba Quebrada from 2019 with this new EP on Far Out. That LP got high praise from dons like Moodymann, Gilles Peterson and Ron Trent and this new one will too, surely. It is deep, mystic house of the highest order, with dreamy pads layered over loose, spacious drums and with wooden percussion rolling over the top. It's hard to pick a highlight here as all four jams really connect to mind, body and spirit thanks to their authenticity and live feels. The vocal motifs add further layers of depth to unpack and explore.

There's no hiding his musical roots and influences, as dusty keys, live bass and loose, expressive percussion intertwine in a mellow, bluesy haze. This is cut from the same cloth as Kenny Dixon Jr, Theo Parrish, Jay Daniel and scores of others, but Meftah has his own mellow mood to impart on these five addictive, seductive trips through deepest jazz-inflected house.

Review: Australian multi-instrumentalist four-piece Mildlife is all set to unleash its new album Automatic any time soon. Before that though they keep us happy with a new single that comes backed with some pretty big remixes. Adam Halliwell's flute on 'Vapour' is the standout feature on a lush broken beat tune that also makes great use of a vocoder. The first to add their own spin is Scottish legend and one half of Optimo, JD Twitch. Colleen 'Cosmo' Murphy aka Cosmodelica is the second remixer and the Worldwide FM host and assured music aficionado comes correct with two versions, one of which is a nice instrumental.

Time Of The Season (Record Store Day Black Friday 2020)
  1. Time Of The Season (edit by Mr K) (7:41)
  2. Theme From Great Cities (edit by Mr K) (9:35)
Review: Reaching deep into the earliest foundations of his voluminous collection, Danny Krivit presents a psychedelic pop classic rearranged for today's sound systems and setlists. Recorded in the Beatles' Abbey Road studio at the height of the Summer Of Love, the Zombies' "Time Of The Season" is firmly linked in pop culture to the late '60s and the Vietnam era, although it almost never made it out to a wider audience. Ignored on its initial release, it was given a second chance by the label as the last gasp from a band that had officially split up a year before. This time around the song steadily gained fans and word-of-mouth plays in the U.S. and by the summer of 1969, two years after it had been recorded, "Time Of The Season" was ubiquitous and well on its way to being firmly enshrined as an emblem of the era.

Krivit's edit highlights the parade of lush sonic textures that ornament the hip composition, from the iconic, exquisitely echoed bass-clap-exhale riff that opens the song to the cascading Hammond organ solos of Rod Argent. Naturally, this MEU issue keeps the audio quality at its highest level, the better to appreciate these nuances. "It's a song from my childhood that really struck a chord," Danny says. "Over the years I often played a rough edit which always seemed to go over great. The song seemed to get better and better, and age like fine wine." We agree!

From flowers and incense, we move to glass and steel. "Theme For Great Cities" envelops us in a soaring, intense groove, as emblematic of the post-punk no wave style of 1981 as "Time of the Season" was to its own era. Produced by Gong's Steve Hillage, this futuristic instrumental is a bit like Bowie's wordless works with Eno, with an added downtown edge. "The original really struck me," Danny recalls, "especially at Roxy in the early '80s hip hop nights, on that Richard Long sound system... It really blew me away with its atmosphere!"

Danny's edit combines the lean and mean original with a trackier remixed version, cleanly lifting off on an epic ride that clocks in at nearly ten minutes. With the revised rhythm section and its quick-punched low end sandwiching the meat of the original's punishing drums and aggressive, picked bass line, Mr. K gives us the best of the expanded sonics of the remix without losing the atmospherics of the original take.

Review: Two years ago, Early Sounds Recordings co-founder Pellegrino S.

This is his first outing since and explores similarly sunny and meandering sonic territory, beginning with the languid guitar solos, jaunty electric piano riffs and Tullio de Piscopo style percussion of "Astri & Riflessi". Smoother and deeper dancefloor jazz-funk flavours are provided by "Zodyaco", "Libra Position" is a dub-driven affair rich in spacey synth solos and heavy bass, and "Genti Del Mediterraneo" is a riotous dancefloor workout rich in crunchy Clavinets, elastic slap bass and wild electric piano solos. It is, then, every bit as essential as its fine predecessor.

Review: Longtime global groove maker and master musician Quantic rare makes a misstep. And you certainly won't find him making one on this new Selva 12" which is two tracks of big band soul. All the usual Quantic standards apply - big glossy, golden horns and wah wah guitar that brings the funk with superbly solid rhythm sections underneath both grooves. 'Theme From Selva' is a real show stopper that would mark any arrival in style and 'Nineteen Hundred And Eighty Five' is then a big disco cover of Paul McCartney and Wings' track of the same name taken from their 1973 album Band on the Run.

The track has plenty of room for emotions to sink in, and a golden sound that is superbly lush and luxuriant. Says the artist on his latest link with Denitia, "I think Denitia and I both had a new confidence about working together and were excited about the new sounds we were building." Too right.

Spinna naturally opts for a distinctively "Golden era" vibe, laying the Motor City crew's raps over a relaxed, head-nodding beat rich in jazzy double bass samples, crunchy snares and woozy electric piano chords. The jazz Spastiks up the tempo on their flipside version, delivering a revision that's closer in tone to Slum Village's original while offering all manner of subtle differences and dancefloor-focused touches.

Review: In recent times, funk breaks maestro DJ Soopasoul has devoted much of his time to creating and releasing reworks and mash-ups as part of his top-selling Soopastole Edits series. Now he's decided the time is right to unveil some new original music via Jalepeno Records, an imprint he's been associated with since the dawn of time (well, 2008). 'Hot & Cold', featuring the strong and sassy lead vocals of Dionne Charles, is a prize chunk of shuffling sixties soul action built around crunchy drum-breaks, insanely heavy bass, clipped guitars, punchy horn lines and some suitably sustained Hammond organ stabs. He doffs a cap to the B-Boys and B-Girls on flipside 'Hustlin', a break-dance friendly instrumental number that sits somewhere between the Incredible Bongo Band and 21st century soul revivalists the Dap-Kings.

Review: Beastie Boy Mike D Edit has decided to rework Malian artists Idrissa Soumaoro and L'Eclipse De L'I.J.A. and their track 'Nissodia' - from the 1978 album Le Tioko-Tioko - for this new one on Brighton label Mr Bongo, the second time it has landed on the label, having previously been on The Original Sound Of Mali in 2017 Both tunes are pumping, full flavour Afro jams with screeching melodies and big, jangling, angular guitars all powered by funky beats. Each one is guaranteed to light up any cultured dancefloor.

  1. On Top (Guitar & Flute) (3:45)
  2. On Top (Organ & Vibes) (3:45)
Review: Since some of We Jazz's most impressive seven-inch singles so far have come from drummer Teppo Makynen under his Teddy Rok and Stance Brothers aliases, there's a fair chance that 'On Top' will also be a must-check beast. It is, of course, with Makynen following his successful blueprint by delivering two contrasting versions of the same self-played and self-produced track. The A-side 'Guitar and Flute' version is a smoky, late-night treat, with Makynen providing jazz guitar flourishes and Timo Lassy flowery flute parts atop a head-nodding, hip-hop style groove. The track's atmospheric feel is heightened on the flipside 'Organ & Vibes' version, which reminded us of some of the more blunted and stoned trip-hop cuts that Ninja Tune released in the late 1990s.

  1. Golden Brown (2:55)
  2. Walking On The Moon (3:12)
Review: While trying to keep himself busy during lockdown, musician Laurence Mason decided to record a Dave Brubeck style cover version of the Stranglers' classic "Golden Brown" full of excitable drum solos, and snaking horn lines replacing the oh-so familiar lead vocal. It became a big hit online after he posted it on YouTube, so Jazz Room Records boss Paul Murphy asked if he could release it on wax. It's a superb version that successfully reinvents the Stranglers' gem as a quality jazz tune. Equally as impressive is his flipside version of the Police's "Walking on the Moon", which is as deep, atmospheric, enticing and intoxicating as they come. In fact, it could well be better than the in-demand A-side, and that's saying something.

What's Going On?
  1. What's Going On? (Rob Hardt mix) (4:29)
  2. What's Going On? (Toddi Reed & Terri Green original mix) (4:25)
Review: Before the global pandemic, the Terri Green Project and Cornell 'CC' Carter planned to collaborate on a cover version of Marvin Gaye classic 'What's Going On?' That collaboration has now finally seen the light of day, and the finished version features a wealth of other independent soul artists in supporting roles. In its original Toddi Reed and Terri Green mix form (side B), the track is a warm, groovy, head-nodding update of the conscious soul favourite, with the variety of voices on show only emphasizing the power of the song's infamously on-point lyrics. Rob Hardt's A-side mix, a slicker and more musically detailed affair featuring a more prominent bassline, sweeping synth-strings and positive piano parts, is arguably even better.

Review: Emma-Jean Thackray is often heralded as one of the currently booming jazz scene's most vital artists. Her Walrus EP came back in 2016 and immediately sold out. It was a unique experimental jazz and beat mixture alive with the spirit of South London, filled with off key percussion and plenty of the award-winning artist's own jazz trumpet and flugel playing. Opener 'Baro Bop' is a worldly number, the title track has a heavy, swaggering groove and 'Birthday Cake' is a trip to the clouds. That this is back in print should please plenty of fans old and new.

Review: Selva Discos broadens its horizons with the next release that celebrates the start of a new series focusing on showcasing the music of contemporary Brazilian artists. First up is Pedro Zopelar, known not only for his work with the anarchic-techno-punk act Teto Preto, but also for the project My Girlfriend and his solo LP - both on Funkineven's Apron Records. Novaterra Vol 1 features the hi-tech jazz of 'Livre', the off-kilter funk of 'Dias Tensos' is wonderfully disorienting, while the UK broken beat influence of Bugz In The Attic or Atjazz are clearly evident on tracks like 'Modo Aviao' or the bittersweet 'Boogie Da Paz'.

Review: Earlier this year, Moses Boyd finally fulfilled on his immense promise with Dark Matter, a sophomore set that cemented his position as one of UK jazz's top talents. On the back of that success, his 2018 debut, Displaced Diaspora, has been given a fresh vinyl pressing. For those who missed out first time round, the album is a collaborative affair, with numerous guests joining in with Boyd's distinctively eclectic fusion fun. Afro-brass outfit Kevin Haynes Grupo Eleggua make a huge impression on a number of tracks, Zara McFarlane provides a sensual, sumptuous vocal on the classic late night jazz smokiness of 'City Nocturne' and Terri Walker and Louis V rise above the organic, jazz-fuelled hip-hop soul brilliance of 'Waiting On The Night Bus'.

Review: Celebrity BBQ Sauce may be a new name, but its' members - Gerald Mitchell and Billy Love - have long been members of the extended Underground Resistance family. They're both an established part of the Motor City music community, and their self-titled debut album for Moodymann's Mahogani Music is undeniably rooted in Detroit's ongoing musical story. Effortlessly soulful and musically rich, its' eight killer cuts various touch on Parliament/Funkadelic style P-Funk (the superb title track), up-tempo, slap-bass propelled '80s boogie ('Music is My Hustle'), warming deep house-soul ('Please Don't Fail Me'), beatdown (the sleazy brilliance of the Amp Fiddler-esque 'Formula of Passion'), and inspired fusions of all of the above ('Lifeline').
