    SecondoA Matter Of ScaleSoul Jazz Records

    Soul Jazz Records release Secondo’s first album of super-funky micro cut-up disco and electronic music. Secondo is Italian/Serbian producer Radovan Scasascia. Born in Zurich in 1975, his super-funky minimal discofied electronic dance music has been appearing sporadically on Soul Jazz Records since 2003 and on his own minimal electronic label, Dreck Records since 2000, where he also releases the music of artists such as AM/PM, Antonelli and Strategy. His most recent appearance was on the Soul Jazz Singles CD alongside Rekid (AKA Radio Slave and one half of Quiet Village), Kode9, Subway, DJ Rupture and other similarly like-minded electronic pioneers.

    Secondo’s love of disco and minimal European electronic music produces a unique funky-electronic cut up style that shows his close links with the micro-house sound of Germany’s Kompakt label as much as that of the New York Disco labels of the late 70s and early 80s. This led to earlier releases such as his celebrated Tom Tom Club cut-up a few years back.

    Secondo’s music features thousands of micro-samples and on “A Matter of Scale”, his first album on Soul Jazz Records, the music successfully reflects his aim of reconstructing these minute sonic fragments into new compositions that somehow maintain the atmosphere of the originals as well as creating new worlds. As much at home with his own material as other peoples, his remixes have appeared on a diverse set of European and American electronic artists – Felix da Housecat, Richie Hawtin, Harrison Crump, James Din A4, Kammerflimmer Kollektief and many more.

      IkonikaAqueaous CreamHum And Buzz

      Ikonika & Optimum are present their highly anticipated new venture: Hum + Buzz Records. This double A side debut release is right at the centre of the current UK crossover, post-genre sound. First up, ‘Aqueous Cream’ explores a different sound to the one Ikonika delivered on her recent Hyperdub debut album. A dancefloor ready track with smooth sub bass, staccato piano chords, trademark emotive synth-leads, underpinned by tough kicks, sizzling hi-hats and ricochet snares. On side AA, ‘Ampersand’ marks Ikonika & Optimum’s first official collaboration. Layers of synth melodies float above a steady four/four pulse and unpredictable claps. An angular, broken, melodic march at a house tempo.

      IkonikaDCKHDBTCHPlanet Mu

      Ikonika returns to Planet Mu with three new tracks which follow up her debut album on Hyperdub and lots of work as an in demand remixer and a brilliant DJ.

      On the A, ‘Dckhdbtch’ kicks off with a punchy soca-ish white noise drum pattern before switching the mood with a lonely arpeggiated melody and bassline, before her infamous crying synth melodies break out into a bitter sweet euphoria. ‘Ingredients’ opens with lulling, dark chords and minimal, slapping drums while slowly developing some sweet melodies and fragile chilling orchestral strings, sounding like a repeated snapshot of incidental music stolen from a dramatic moment of a film. ‘Shouldn’t Be Here’ is the most ‘techno’ of the tracks; huge, sorrowful chords backed with a 4/4 beat that’s accented with off beat cymbals and an undulating bassline, the sad feeling is only heightened with a passionate, far away female vocal and a soft lead melody.

      Tevo Howard / Kutmah, Art+Sound 12"Summer RomanceSounds Of The Universe / Soul Jazz Records

      Limited 12” (300 copies worldwide) and ONLY AVAILABLE exclusively from Sounds of the Universe record store and Soul Jazz Records.

      This unique Art+Sound 180 gram vinyl only is the second release on our own Sounds of the Universe label and features music from Tevo Howard on one side and exclusive hand-etched art engraving by graphic artist Kutmah on the other side.

      New generation Chicago house artist and DJ, Tevo Howard, is also the son of legendary bluesman Rick 'Poppa' Howard. ‘Summer Romance’ is the new exclusive track made for our new Sounds Of The Universe label, launched by Soul Jazz Records.

      Tevo's sound incorporates drum machines, melancholic melodies which reference Detroit alongside the deep warm sound of New York. But above all it is a sound matured at home in the heart of house music, Chicago.

      Graphic artist Kutmah is the California-raised illustrator and DJ who has worked with many of the Los Angeles underground electronic hip-hop community - Gaslamp Killer, Flying Lotus, Gonjasufi and Dabrye - through his affiliation with the Dublab collective and the groundbreaking electronic/hip-hop club 'Low End Theory'.

      Trus'meIn The RedFat City / Prime Numbers

      Ace blend of deep house, soul and disco from Mancunian wunderkind Trus'me!

      "Working Nights" is regularly held up as "one of the finest deep house and disco albums to come out of the U.K in years", but this was just the beginning of the Trusme sound. Since then he has become increasingly adept and inventive at taking on the sound system roots of reggae, soul, and disco, blending them with house and techno, to create a hypnotically radical sound.

      Trus'me has certainly raised the bar enlisting some real key players to appear on "In The Red". Dam-Funk, Stones Throw recording artist and L.A.'s rising star of the nu-boogie scene collaborates on a low slung interpretation of the WasNotWas disco epic "Wheel Me Out". Also on board is the jazzy Detroit innovator Amp Fiddler who features on two tracks including a bass & rhodes heavy cover of Bill Withers bittersweet classic "Can We Pretend". Paul Randolph, Jazzanova's current front-man, provides vocals for a house'd up version of West Phillips' boogie favourite "Sucker for a Pretty Face" and Mahogani Music's longtime collaborator Pirahnahead lends his vocal skills to the title track "In the Red". Ace late night party action!

      EVM128Groove Content EPMeltdown

      Debut single on Ross Allen's new Meltdown imprint!

      'Groove Content EP' is a mash up of styles, part post garage, part bass, part Dilla, part street soul, it's all here but done in a very sophiscated and damn funky way. The title track is rude, sexy synths and claps, old skool 80's boogie cut-ins with a Joy O style post-garage-y beat. Another gem, 'Falling' has a chunky, staggered dilla-esque chunky drums, funked-up synthwork and a killer male vocal. Solid EP - We love this!

      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.
