    J-Jazz Volume 3: Deep Modern Jazz from JapanBBE

    BBE's J-Jazz compilation series continues and focuses on some of the most creative, inspired and sought-after jazz recorded in Japan during a golden period spanning the 1960s to the 1980s. Illustrating the richness and versatility of the composers and musicians on this collection, the music spans a wide yet coherent range of styles: samba, funk fusion, modal, spiritual, post-bop and bossa all combine to present an aural portrait of a jazz scene that was constantly moving and shifting its multiple musical centres of gravity. Many of the tracks featured are reissued for the first time, including mega-rare private press cuts from the Yasuhiro Kohno Trio, Masaru Imada Trio, and Hideyasu Terakawa Quartet. There’s heavy post modal bop by J Jazz legends Kohsuke Mine and Koichi Matsukaze; samba heat from Tatsuya Nakamura, Hideo Shiraki and Seiichi Nakamura; and funky dance floor energy by Hiroshi Murakami, Ryojiro Furusawa Quartet and Shigeharu Mukai.

          Cameroun-born and Nigeria-bred, this innovative multi-instrumentalist, composer, producer and engineer was one of a select handful of backroom boffins that West African artists and producers would habitually call upon when they wanted a ‘modernist’ Afro-pop sound that would appeal across borders.

          Bert MyrickLive 'n WellBBE

          BBE reissue a gem from the tiny yet highly influential catalogue of Strata Records - a holy grail imprint among jazz lovers that preceded New York’s Strata East label.

          Fronted by drummer Bert Myrick, this album highlights a quintet of highly talented players at the height of their powers. Featuring Will Austin on bass, Kenny Cox on piano and Ronnie Fields on tenor sax, the performance also stars the legendary George Bohanon from Motown Records.

          PazPaz Are BackBBE

          Recorded during the summer of 1980 and originally released in 1982 on Spotlight Records, ‘Paz are Back’ was the second (and arguably the finest) album by the London jazz collective, founded by vibraphonist, composer and arranger Dick Crouch. Known for their original jazz-funk and Latin stylings, the band held a weekly Sunday residency at The Kensington pub in Holland Park for over 8 years, becoming a fixture at many London venues throughout the 70’s and 80’s, most notably Ronnie Scott’s. A classic with Giles Peterson and all the heads back in the day!

            JigmastersResurgenceBBE

            New York duo of DJ Spinna & Kryminul present 'Resurgence', a long awaited album of previously unreleased material. Comprising tracks created between 2003 and the present day, 'Resurgence' represents the duo's musical growth during a period where most of us assumed the Jigmastas project was on hold. Brimming over with soul thanks to Spinna's distinctively languid boom-bap productions topped by Kryminul's clever and witty brand of storytelling.

              The Peoples' WorkshopHouston Talent Expo '82BBE

              Highly sought after early 80's gem, originally created as a showcase project for young artists and composers by a community music organisation in Texas. Originally referred to as the 'Pop Music Lab', The Peoples' Workshop was formed in 1976 at Texas Southern University as a space for students to compose and perform, free from the constrains of Western classical music education. The Workshop has since grown in size and scope, becoming the first Black-founded organisation to present shows in major performance venues around the Greater Houston area. Houston Talent Expo '82 features original compositions by members of The Peoples' Workshop, performed exclusively by musicians from Houston. The songs vary in style, but remain centered around gospel, funk and soul; music and lyrics with a powerful positive message.

              Houston Talent Expo '82 comprises a truly special collection of songs born from the struggle, true to the spirit of togetherness that underpins The Peoples' Workshop, written and performed by astonishing young talents.

                  Taken from 'Off Track Vol. 3', 'Tin Top' provides yet another reminder of why Kon is revered almost as much for his music knowledge and record collection as he is for his production skills. A party disco belter, Kon's subtle edit of 'Tin Top' simply can't miss on the dance-floor thanks its infectious groove and fun lyrics. In Pt.2, the story takes a darker turn, while the track just keeps on grooving.

                  Very special artists packages, released on 12” vinyl for the first time, exclusively for RSD 2016, strictly very limited.

                      King Midas SoundWaiting For YouHyperdub

                      After making their debut on Soul Jazz Records 'Box Of Dub 2' and two well received singles for Kode9's Hyperdub, King Midas Sound finally drop their highly anticipated album!

                      King Midas Sound are fierce dubby electronics producer Kevin Martin aka The Bug and well-respected poet and lyricist Roger Robinson! The collaboration is faultless with Roger's eerie whispering tones melting within The Bug's incredibly intense blanket of bass and atmospherics perfectly. Roger sets the tone of the album with a ghostly spoken word rhythmic chant on 'Cool Out', the Bug adds a slow walk of lazy stomping bass and machine noise. 'Waiting For You' has a deep soulful melacholic feel to it, with Roger's emotive deeply personal lyrics dominating most of the track. Armed Rogers lyrics of love, loss and heartache, the album has a meditative smokers feel to it, and similar to The bug's previous production 'Waiting For You' has a deep menancing, unsettling feeling and with tracks like 'The Earth Will Kill You' where the duo become a trio accompanied with backing vocals from Hitomi (from Dokkebi Q) on this album is likely to have you looking behind you constantly with severe paranoia! 

                      Will appeal to open-minded dub afficionado's, dubstep heads aswell as fans of SA-RA, Portishead etc! 

                      VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

                      Harmonia & Eno '76Tracks and Traces ReissueGronland

                      Fantastic reissue of the legendary 1976 recordings by Harmonia and Eno!

                      This is the legendary collaboration between pioneering experimental mastermind Brian eno and Harmonia. Harmonia consist of German multi instrumentalists Hans-joachim Roedelius, Dieter Moebius of Cluster and former member of Kraftwerk and Neu!,Michael Rother.

                      It's hard to believe that Tracks and Traces was recorded in 1976 as the music was so far ahead of it's time. Tracks and Traces is made up of beautiful ambient experimental electronic music, progressive krautrock and deep komische dronescapes.

                      Twelve tracks of cinematic lo-fi keyboards, strange synthesizer action, echoey guitar, eerie sound layering and quirky electronic exploration!

                      Highly Recommended!

                      RekidMade In MenorcaSoul Jazz Records

                      Rekid is the alter-ego of Matt Edwards A/K/A Radio Slave, one half of the mighty Quiet Village, and remixer to the stars and dance music’s man of the moment whose work with DJ Hell, Kylie Minogue (where he famously mixed Kylie with New Order’s ‘Blue Monday’), Carl Craig, Talking Heads, Chicken Lips, Pet Shop Boys and even Kate Bush has made him currently one of the most in-demand remixers working today.

                      Rekid is the pseudonym he uses for his more serious/underground work and "Made in Menorca" is his first album released under the Rekid moniker and released on Soul Jazz Records. With numerous recording projects (Rekid, Radio Slave, Quiet Village, Mathew E, Sea Devils) under his belt, Matt Edwards’ music breaks down the traditional barriers of dance music – house, broken beat, techno, electro, hip-hop, disco cut-ups – and influences from Walter Gibbons to Andy Weatherall to DJ Harvey to create a truly unique sound.

                      After two extremely well received singles Rekid’s  full-length debut "Made in Menorca" is already getting support from the likes of Lindstrom, DJ Hell, Tiga, Trevor Jackson and Carl Craig ‘Made In Menorca’ is quite literally the most refreshing piece of electronic dance music we reckon you’ll hear all year.

                      Moving between stark cold European machine music, sophisticated electronic disco to the futuristic hip hop of the late J-Dilla and the abstract house music of Theo Parrish ‘Made In Menorca’ is a journey in 21st century electronica in Matt’s slick accomplished style.

                      Deutsche Elektronische MusikSoul Jazz Records

                      AVAILABLE AGAIN! Soul Jazz Records new 2018 edition of their long out of print classic first “Deutsche Elektronische Musik – Experimental German Rock and Electronic Music 1972-83” is ‘a near-definitive guide to some of the world’s most extraordinary music’ (The Guardian).


                      Featuring a stunning line-up of groups including Cluster, Can, Faust, Popol Vuh, Neu!, Amon Düül, Harmonia, La Düsseldorf and Tangerine Dream as well as a host of lesser known groups such as Kollectiv, Ibliss, Between and many more. This new edition is fully re-mastered and features all the original artwork and tracks.


                      The first seeds of German rock and experimental electronic music were planted in 1968, as students and workers in Paris, Prague, Mexico and throughout the world demonstrated against mainstream society, the war in Vietnam, imperialism and bourgeois values. The birth of a counter-culture, drug experimentation and social change expanded musical worlds. Germany experienced its own cultural revolution fuelled by these worldwide student and worker revolts and by a generation’s desire to rid itself of the guilt of war.


                      German rock and experimental electronic music grew out of this worldwide counter-cultural revolution of 1968. The objectives were to create new music, ‘free’ from the past, many German youth turning their back on mainstream society. From the opening of the first collective/cooperative, Kommune 1, in Berlin, to the formation of the Baader-Meinhof terrorist group and the bombings, kidnappings and killings of the Revolutionary Armed Forces (RAF), young Germans sought out new values and a lifestyle outside of ‘the system’.


                      These cooperative and communal experiences led to a number of new collective German bands forming such as Amon Düül, Faust, Can (all featured here) and others and these ideals drove this new movement. A music that gave seed out of the cultural ‘nothingness’ that young Germans felt as a consequence of Germany’s role in the Second World War. A generation who grew up stifled by the recent history of Nazi atrocities, the guilt of their parents’ generation and their disillusionment at the reintegration of old Nazis into mainstream society.



                      Influenced equally by the electronic experimentalism of Stockhausen, the progressive rock of Pink Floyd and the black American jazz and soul music played at the occupying armed forces bases, young German artists seamlessly created out of this a new unique music with its own unique identity.


                      Double CD pack with large 36-page outsize booklet encased in slipcase. The vinyl edition is made up of TWO separate volume heavyweight loud gatefold double albums (now + free download codes) featuring all sleevenotes and text.
