                        Karl Hector & The MalcounsSahara SwingNow Again

                        Now-Again Records follows up The Heliocentrics’ percussive excursions into the astral realms of psychedelia with an album of Afro-tinged funk music originating from the Southern Sahara and recorded in Germany. Karl Hector has, to date, only appeared on one 7-inch, from 1996, as the leader of the Funk Pilots. For this album, he has teamed up with Jay Whitefield (producer and guitarist for the Poets of Rhythm and the Whitefield Brothers, and founder of the now defunct Hotpie & Candy Records) and Thomas Myland and Zdenko Curlija, founders of The Malcouns. Alongside Bo Baral, other members of the Poets of Rhythm and crack Munich- based session musicians, Whitefield, Myland and Curlija have crafted nearly twenty tracks that follow the musical roads that Hector has travelled. The underlying groove that ties these ideas together, of course, is as rooted in James Brown as it is Fela Kuti. As informed by Mulatu Astatke of Ethiopia as it is by Jean-Claude Vannier and Can. This is an album of the world. Not “world music” – but that will appeal to any culture ever transfixed by rhythm on “the one.”

                        AzymuthAuroraFar Out

                        Returning to their huge old school sound this new recording celebrates 35 years of Azymuth as "arguably the most successful band to come out of Brazil". The signature swing samba is heavier than ever with a string of unforgettable tunes: from dancefloor fillers and lush jazz to hard, grooving samba funk and warped psychedelia. The keyboards, played by Jose Roberto Bertrami, and Alex Malherios' electric bass interact like two lead instruments - the contagious hooks and seriously funky basslines combine beautifully with Ivan 'Mamao' Conti's dazzling druming. Highly recommended!

                        Weldon IrvineCosmic Vortex (1974)BMG

                        100% Stone-cold rare groove classic. "Walk that Walk" is a heavyweight monster tune. ESSENTIAL!

                        By 1974, 31 year-old Weldon Irvine was ready for the next phase of his career. Having spent years working variously as a pianist, band leader, composer, arranger and road manager with the likes of Joe Henderson and Nina Simone, his breakout moment as a solo artist finally came in 1974, when he signed with RCA Records. Finally backed with a budget that could match his ambitions, Irvine's first release was Cosmic Vortex, a sprawling, monumental work that embodied a musician at the height of his powers. The result is an album that molds his jazz instincts for free-form improvisation to fit a deep funk aesthetic, but also matched with strong, spiritual lyrics.

                          Wayne Henderson and The Freedom SoundsSoul Sound System (1968)Atlantic

                          Trombonist Wayne Henderson formed The Freedom Sounds ('a big-little band') whilst still a member of The Jazz Crusaders and delivered some scorching soul-jazz for Atlantic in the late 60s

                            MadlibMedicine Show No.9 - NittyvilleMadlib Invasion

                            The elusive ninth installment from Madlib's Medicine Show series!

                            No. 9 is a punch-you-in-the-face return to hip hop form – a collaborative album with Detroit rapper Frank Nitti. Madlib and Nitti first collaborated on Jaylib’s ‘McNasty Filth’, from the seminal ‘Champion Sound’ album.

                            Back then, Frank was one half of the rap duo Frank ‘n’ Dank, and he and his partner were the late J-Dilla’s go-to MCs. Madlib liked what he heard, and promised Frank that one day he would work with the budding rapper on an album. Seven years, hundreds of beats, a bunch of blunt smoke and far too many cross-country trips later, and this is the result: a hazy, funk-filled rap album, done as only the Beat Konducta can do.

                            This is a continuation of the styles laid down in Medicine Show #1 – ‘Before The Verdict’ with Guilty Simpson - and it sets the stage for the joint set that Madlib will release with his brother Oh No on Medicine Show #11.

                            Originally recorded in 1974, "Confusion" is a 26-minute, one-track album that is entirely instrumental on the first side. Lyrically, the song is a polemical comment on the confused state of Nigeria's chaotic, post-colonial, urban existence. A fine example of the great man's genius.
