Lovingly unearthed and compiled by DJ's Hugo Mendez and Frankie Francis, who are also responsible for Sofrito's unmissable, fun-fuelled tropical warehouse parties in east london.

      Taking in everything from the bump of ’70s Haitian cadence to the swing of synth-drenched soukous, from the hypnotic refrain of a Guadeloupean carnival rhythm to DIY disco from Cameroon, the compilation reflects the sound of a Sofrito session in full swing…

      Cult CargoSalsa Boricua De ChicagoNumero Group

      Wonderful new compilation of late seventies Salsa from Numero!!!

      Far from the twin epicenters of New York and Miami, Carlos Ruiz and his Ebirac label were both feeling and generating the aftershocks of the mid-'70s salsa boom. Holed up in their own bustling Puerto Rican community center on Chicago's west side, these third coast salseros plied their trade outside the hot lights, cutting their teeth in city parks, VFW halls, and Holiday Inn rec rooms. Nearly 50 records survive in the wake of orquestas La Justicia, La Solucion, and Tipica Leal ‘79, the most impassioned, singular moments of which are compiled here.

      • Ebirac All-Stars feat. La – Plena Matrimorial
      • Justicia – Stone Flower

      Heatsick Convergence No 'label'

      Brimming with stimuli from these four minimalist drum machine workouts from Heatsick.

      Warming up with cute chords on "Benelux" before opening up in the 2nd half of the tune with grizzly bass, tight Chicago groove with mad-hatter style free jazz strings. Really good.  Druggy, dubby grooves on "Spacescape". The flip, "Convergence" has a melting pot to sounds, mashing up off-kilter african drumming, deep Chicago house and oddball synth action. Quirky DJ tool "The juggler" rounds things off.

      Freddie Gibbs & Madlib Shame Madlib Invasion

      Freddie Gibbs & Madlib's Shame EP follows where Thuggin’ left off: with Gibbs effectively spooling street stories onto the Beat Konducta’s wax.

      “Shame” featuring singer B.J. The Chicago Kid, is Gibbs’ honest appraisal of a one night stand; “Terrorist” is all killer, no filler – a short, terrifying rap offset by a cheeky fusion jazz sample. The EP also contains vocals, instrumentals and two bonus beats.
