    Synth chutes, synth ladders, popcorn 808 beats, dirge-y chants and busted sub-woofer hums from inner-galactic soul pioneers Nathaniel Woolridge and Anthony Freeman intertwine to create this hypnotic, mythical 1984 LP from Newark, New Jersey. Wicked reissue from the Numero camp!
    Veteran library musician Alan Parker recorded with session vocalist Madeline Bell for his Themes International Music label and the result was 1976’s The Voice of Soul. Be With reissue on 180g vinyl, remastered from the original tapes.
    Their NEW album, in full, iconic KPM cover is a return to the laidback jazz-funk that helped Alan and Brian demonstrate their library chops. The album is classic Hawkshaw/Bennett. It swings, it grooves, moves and thrills with a flair these two have perfected over years.
    American soul troupe The Du-Rites follow up on their collaborations with giants like Eddie Palmieri, Robert Glasper and DJ Rob Swift with this 45. Mid-tempo, funked out soul groovers!
