Red Clay
Red Clay (7") (1 per customer)
Cat: DFLSCR 0001. Rel: 27 Jan 21
  1. Red Clay (4:06)
  2. Nautilus (4:13)
Review: As showcased by DJ Koco from Japan on instagram and as the label artwork makes clear, this two-tracker from the previously unheard Alex Santos Orchestra was made in tribute to Creed Taylor's legendary CTI Records imprint, which during the 1970s released some of the finest jazz, jazz-funk and fusion ever made. On side A the studio collective gives their interpretation of Freddie Hubbard's 1970 epic 'Red Clay', with the track's most famous musical elements - jaunty sax riffs and mazy electric piano motifs - rising above a funkier, warmer and tighter interpretation of the track's low-end groove. Turn to the flip for their version of Bob James' favourite 'Nautilus', a harder edge take that combines a faithfully spacey take on the original's electric piano melody with sweatier beats and heavier horns.

Midnight In Havana (reissue)
Midnight In Havana (reissue) (white vinyl 7" limited to 200 copies)
Cat: OGR 799COLOUR. Rel: 04 Jan 21
  1. Midnight In Havana (5:18)
  2. Kinky Afro Cuban (4:53)
Review: Like all material released on Original Gravity, this tidy two-tracker from percussionist/band-leader Nestor Alvarezn and producer Neil Anderson sounds like it could have been recorded decades ago but is in fact brand new. It first appeared earlier in the year and has now been granted a second pressing, this time on coloured vinyl. A-side 'Midnight in Havana' is a heavyweight Afro-Cuban treat, with roaring horn lines and energetic organ lines leaping above a weighty, low-slung groove piled high with Latin percussion. The pair get cheeky on the flip, re-imagining Happy Mondays' classic 'Kinky Afro' in an easy listening salsa style, complete with bi-lingual lead vocals and sweltering trumpet solos.

Tangerine Dreams
Tangerine Dreams (7" limited to 300 copies)
Cat: FR 001BLACK. Rel: 21 Jan 21
  1. Tangerine Dreams (3:15)
  2. Two Mile Hill (3:09)
Review: Straight out of Bristol comes a brand-new label from Tom Friend, the avuncular vinyl obsessive behind the Friendly Records store and bar. The inaugural release on Friendly Recordings fittingly comes from a local talent, promising newcomer Claude Cooper. What's on offer very much taps into Bristol's post-punk history, with excellent A-side 'Tangerine Dreams' sounding like the sax-wielding mutant offspring of Rip, Rig & Panic and Maximum Joy - all bold, rubbery double bass, frenetic breakbeats and delay-laden horn solos. B-side 'Two Mile Hill', which was named in honour of a road in Bristol near Cooper's house, offers an extra-percussive and moodier variation on a similar theme. In a word: terrific!

Disrupt #4
Cat: SOR 016. Rel: 14 Jan 21
  1. Disrupt #4 (4:47)
  2. Disrupt #4 (Awkward Corners remix) (4:44)
Review: Emanative is an artist known for his love of collaborating with others. He has worked with Bex Burch during the lockdown and now this new EP is the meeting of those minds pressed to wax. Nick Emanative initially provided Bex with a hazy, 808 / African-inspired sketch and things were taken from there with a back and forth dialogue resulting in an afro tinged house groover with post punk-esque vocal, Ghanaian Gyil xylophone and synths and tape delay from Hector Plimmer. It makes for a fascinating pair of tunes.

Jazz N Palms 03
Cat: JNP 03. Rel: 26 Jan 21
  1. Kite Park (8:57)
  2. Puerto Rico (2:59)
  3. La Ola (4:14)
  4. Neon Landscape (7:09)
  5. Afrotropic (5:20)
Review: Jazz N Palms let loose with noter of their impossibly sunny and freeform new EPs. It packs in five more iconic tunes that have all been reworked, retouched and edited by the in house team. They're the sort of joyous jams you'd hear in more grown up spots in Ibiza and at monthly warm-up sets at the Ronnie Scott's (London) jazz concerts held at Pikes. Latin, funk, jazz, bossa, beats and soul all collide here with big brass sounds, organic percussive energy and sunshine to spare. The playful porno sounds of 'La Ola' is our pick.

  12. I'll See You Again (5:56)
Review: When it first appeared digitally earlier in the year, DJ Spinna described Deborah Jordan's first album in nine years, See in the Dark, as an, "instant future classic". As it now lands on vinyl for the first time, we have to say we wholeheartedly agree with his assessment. Sitting somewhere between neo-soul, broken beat, nu-jazz and future R&B, the set sees Jordan deliver impeccable, effortlessly soulful performances of her own songs with the help of an impressive cast-list of musicians and a string quartet. Brilliant from start to finish, its multiple highlights include the slow and seductive shuffle of 'Stay With You', the piano ballad 'Fear', the stunning R&B brilliance of 'Machine' and effervescent bruk-up number 'You Should Know'.

  1. Chicago (7:16)
  2. Spinnin (7:41)
Review: The second release from the newly emerging If It Ain't Jazz label comes from Swedish producer Opolopo. For this one he takes two classics from the jazz-disco world and adds his own distinctive spins. The results soar into the stratosphere on golden chords and humid pads, funky drums and gliding grooves. Both are timeless reworks that will do plenty of damage on a wide range of dance floors. This marks another noteworthy release for this small but well formed label.

Oonops Drops Ruff Cuts

  2. On The Run (instrumental remix) (1:21)
  3. Remember Us (instrumental 7" edit) (2:18)
  4. Portisheadshop (2:25)
Review: If you're on the lookout for some hedonistic, party-starting fare, we'd highly recommend this bonus seven-inch from Ogogo's ongoing Oonop Drops series. The theme is "ruff cuts", with the Ruffcats setting the agenda on side A, joining forces with Allergies' mic man Andy Cooper for the jazzy funk breaks-meets-scratch-happy-hip-hop heaviness that is the Slick Walk remix of 'On The Run'. That comes accompanied on side A by a typically tight and heavy instrumental version. Over on the flip, 6th Generation take over with 'Remember Us', a jazzy, deep and bass-heavy instrumental hip-hop number of the type that Grand Central Records' used to champion, before Clockwerk and Birdmoves wrap things up via the smoky trip-hop head-nod that is 'Portisheadshop'.

  11. Shabaka & The Ancestors - "Wisdom Of Elders" (9:21)
  12. Makaya McCraven - "Gnawa" (2:04)
Review:  While previous instalments of Jazzman's essential Spiritual Jazz series have focused on killer cuts and rare gems from the past (specifically material recorded between the 1950s and '80s), the thirteenth volume shines a light on what's happening right now. It's stretched across two double-albums, with this first part hitting spot from the word go. The collection's greatest strength is how it manages to represent the many different directions that spiritual jazz has gone in the 21st century. For proof, compare and contrast the drowsy, bluesy and smoky 'Lizard Waltz' by Benjamin Herman, the jazz psychedelia of Idris Ackmoor and the Pyramids' 'An Angel Fell', the Latin lounge-jazz flex of Jimi Tenor and Kabukabu's 'Suite Meets' and the low-down, bass-driven brilliance of Gnawa' by drummer-turned-beatmaker Maya McCracken.

Review: It's been almost a full decade since the last Wagon Christ album from Luke Vibert. He is a producer who can do just about anything and has been right at the sharp end of any number of sounds for the last 25 years. The newly revived Wagon Christ project is sounding as good as ever here across 14 tracks of glistening electronics, dancing grooves and exquisitely colourful melodies that draw on dub, pop, boogie, synth, house, electro and techno but always come out with a very distinctive Vibert twang. The melancholic slow motion pomp of 'Special Designer Song' and chunky funk of 'Likewutchyadoo' are particular standouts.
