A: Re?ection of the Times feat. Reggie Coby – is a powerful conversation
on race that spells out the struggle in stark and unambiguous terms.

we’re living in. “Re?ection of the Times” is an opportunity for the group to
present the foundation for that dialogue to continue.

of classic group tracks like Wu-Tang Clan’s “Protect Ya Neck” or Main

a chance of a too-many-cooks situation, but “Soul Force” delivers, making

The Souljazz Orchestra – Under Burning Skies
Friday, August 11th, 2017 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on The Souljazz Orchestra – Under Burning Skies

Image: 1610693 Canada’s fastest moving and hardest working collective are back with one of their finest albums to date, a brand new journey into tropical, soul and jazz styles on their scorching new release, ‘Under Burning Skies’.

Tracklisting:
1. Dog Eat Dog
2. Lufunki
3. Sorrow Fly Away
4. Tambour À Deux Peaux
5. Under Burning Skies
6. Holla Holla
7. Is Yeelyel
8. Adawe Boogie
9. Oublier Pour Un Jour
10. Aduna Jarul Naawo

Turbulent times call for strong voices and The Souljazz Orchestra’s new set packs a suitably heavy lyrical punch, with wry observations and an urge for progressive change. Musically, the band continue to push the limits, dusting off ‘80s vintage synthesizers and early drum machines for the first time, bringing lo fi disco, boogie and electro touches to their trademark horn arrangements and earthy analogue sound. The fruits are a-plenty and the group sound at their confident and versatile best from start to finish.
Opener ‘Dog Eat Dog’ powers in with Mabinuori Idowu and Philippe Lafrenière lambasting the powerful and the corrupt over an infectious Afro-disco groove, ‘Lufunki’ takes the group right back to their B-Boy roots, bringing the Afro vibes to Beat Street and ‘Is Yeelyel’ delivers a killer rework of an obscure original by
Somalian super-group Dur-Dur Band. The band go on exploring their passion for French Caribbean styles on the beautiful, lilting ‘Oublier Pour Un Jour’ and ‘Tambour À Deux Peaux’ and they take time for reflection on the potent instrumental title track and poignant closer ‘Aduna Jarul Naawo’, featuring the vocals of Élage Mbaye. The Souljazz Orchestra continue to be an unstoppable force. Nominated for a Canadian Juno award for the third time in 2016, the band regularly tear up venues worldwide through their punishing touring schedule – they have played to audiences in over two dozen countries across the globe and have shared bills along the way with heavyweights as varied as Stevie Wonder, Bob Dylan, and Femi Kuti. Not many bands out there have been going for 15 years with their original line-up still intact while still sounding as fresh as this. As saxophonist Ray Murray says, “Souljazz is more than just a band for us, it’s a way of life.” ‘Under Burning Skies’ is released on LP, CD, cassette and digital formats. The LP is pressed on bright yellow vinyl and all formats feature superb illustrated artwork by The Souljazz Orchestra’s Pierre Chrétien.

KEY POINTS:
– great new album from groundbreaking Canadian collective exploring Afro, Latin and tropical styles
– includes new version of Dur Dur Band’s ‘Is Yeelyel’
– Striking artwork / Digipak
– Full European tour accompanies release of album during Autumn 2017

FOR FANS OF:
Quantic, Fela Kuti, Dur Dur Band, Mulatu Astatke, Bonobo, Gotan Project, Antibalas, coupe decale, Afrobeat, Gilles Peterson, Lefto, Sun Ra Arkestra,

Image: 1610370 Born and raised by Jamaican parents in London, England, Alpheus
developed a passion for singing after seeing an old recording of Sam
Cooke perform on television, and performing on local sound systems in
London as a youth. His love for Ska rocksteady and reggae developed as

Soundspecies & Ache Meyi – Soundspecies & Ache Meyi
Wednesday, June 21st, 2017 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Soundspecies & Ache Meyi – Soundspecies & Ache Meyi

Image: 1610604 Manana presents the third release on Manana//Records, an album collaboration between the UK’s Soundspecies and Ache Meyi, based in Santiago de Cuba.

Tracklisting:
1. Meme
2. Bembe!

Manana presents the third release on Manana//Records, an album collaboration between the UK’s Soundspecies and Ache Meyi, based in Santiago de Cuba. The project was born in April 2016 in Santiago, in the balmy weeks leading up to Manana Festival and is the culmination of two chaotic weeks of rehearsals at the Casa Del Danzon and two sessions at the legendary Egrem studios. ‘Ache Meyi’ can be translated into ‘Ache’ (‘power’ or ‘blessings’ in the Yoruba language) and ‘Meyi’ (‘double’ or ‘twin’ or ‘twice’) and the band have their very own power twins, Hector and Rafael. Hector is the senior, patriarchal fgurehead of the group alongside his apprentices Alieke and Rafael. Two female singers, Alina and Maire, complete the lineup. The band’s identity is rooted in an interlocking web of afro-Haitian rhythms like bembe, vodu, gaga and merengue, absorbing these folkloric traditions from the neighbourhoods that they grew up in. Soundspecies are brothers Henry and Olly Keen, a Producer/DJ duo from Dorset who explore the connections between the rhythms of traditional folkloric percussive music and the sounds and forms of electronic dance music. Integrating electronics and melodies initially proved hard: “We were struggling to respond to the frenetic, seemingly impenetrable web of rhythmic sounds, and the singers’ sense of tonality was quite free, jumping from one key to n unrelated one within songs,” recalls Olly. However, at the legendary Siboney Egrem Studios in Santiago, they began separating the instruments, breaking the music down into textures and patterns and trying new directions with the sound. At a later session, Ache Meyi then jammed with kick and snare sounds on the MPC, playing to bembe rhythms recorded during the frst session.
Olly continues, “With a virtuoso like Hector, who has dedicated his whole life to his art, it could have been a challenge for us to suggest respectfully that he does it differently but he was the most open-hearted, patient and positive man. The show at the Manana festival was a euphoric experience for us. We wanted the album to capture and distil some of the energy from that night.”

KEY POINTS:
– Groundbreaking fusion of Cuban folkloric music and electronics
– Third release on MANANA / Records following the groundbreaking MANANA / Festival in Santiago, Cuba in 2016
– DJ support from Gilles Peterson, NTS, Worldwide FM, Henrik Schwarz and many more
– Limited edition vinyl format – 500 copies only
– 2LP IN GATEFOLD SLEEVE

Stand High Patrol – The Shift (2LP)
Wednesday, April 26th, 2017 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Stand High Patrol – The Shift (2LP)

Image: 1609888 The story begins in 2000 in Britany (France). Two guys decide to create a sound system with the aim of sharing their common passion for roots reggae and early digital. Rootystep (selecta) and MacGyver (operator) begin to collect records and purchase music equipment. They are quickly joined by Pupajim who becomes the MC, the singer and the dub builder. The Stand High Patrol first toured the land of Brittany, gradually moving towards stepper dub production emanating from the English stage. Fifteen years later, the sound is more present than ever. Stand High has created a true identity and has established itself as one of the essential sound systems of the French dub scene.

In 2009, Stand High Patrol creates his own label “Stand High Records”. In 2012, after releasing several records, the Dubadub Musketeerz present their debut album “Midnight Walkers”, 13 exclusives & wicked tracks inna pure Dubadub Style.
In 2015 the dubadub experience takes on new dimensions with their second album : “A Matter Of Scale”. In 2017 they are back with “The Shift” a third LP totally dedicated to Boom Bap & 90s Hip Hop.

Words, blue notes, boom bap and bad news: here comes “The Shift”, the third album of Stand High Patrol.

U-Roy – Dread In A Babylon (RSD)
Wednesday, March 22nd, 2017 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on U-Roy – Dread In A Babylon (RSD)

Image: 1608993 U-Roy was a true reggae pioneer, dubbed The Originator for good reason. Bursting onto the Jamaican scene in the earliest 1970s, he pioneered the vocal approach called “toasting,” which in addition to branching out Jamaican music into a new era, was also heavily influential on an American genre in its infancy: rapping. On Dread In A Babylon, his third full-length, he stretches out over traditional roots grooves provided by the Soul Syndicate and Skin, Flesh & Bones bands, riffing on topics including love (“Runaway Girl,” a 1975 single released in the UK on Virgin Records), the Bible (“The Great Psalms”), walking the straight and narrow (“Listen To The Teacher”), and even his take on governmental policy goals (“Chalice In The Palace”). The album finishes with an instrumental
version of Bob Marley & The Wailers’ “Trench Town Rock,” for good measure.
U-Roy’s style and charisma are always on display, and – as with all of his classic records – the groove rules all. Presented on black vinyl with a poster of the glorious, ganja-drenched cover art, it’s the perfect chance to revisit one of the more underrated voices in Jamaican musical history.

Brownout Presents Brown Sabbath – Brownout Presents Brown Sabbath II
Thursday, October 6th, 2016 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Brownout Presents Brown Sabbath – Brownout Presents Brown Sabbath II

Image: 1606769 Austin’s Brownout unleashed the Brown
Sabbath Vol.I project garnering acclaim from
outlets such as NPR (50 Best Albums of 2014),
Pitchfork, hardcore Black Sabbath fans and
most important of all Ozzy Osbourne himself,
while staying true to their Latin Funk roots.
Brown Sabbath Vol. II cranks up the level,
rocking harder than the original with a brew of
ballistic horns, pummeling guitar-riffs
underscored by a funky, driving rhyhm section.
Ghostland Observatory‘s Aaron Behrens
makes a guest appearance sharing vocal duties
with Brown Sabbath lead vocalist Alex Marrero.
Hitting harder than it’s predecessor and keeping closely in line
with the original Sabbath material, Brown Sabbath Vol. II crosses
over more to hard rock territory. Brownout’s powerful, signature
full horn section, dual-guitar attack, funked-up drums and latin
percussion return with a vengeance, adding even more weight
and texture to create a dark hybrid sound that resonates with
groove-laden intensity unique to their interpretation of Black
Sabbath’s tome.
An 8-piece outfit formed ten years ago by members of Grammy
Award-winning Latin revival orchestra Grupo Fantasma, Brownout
has evolved into a musical force all its own. With a succesful tour
of Brown Sabbath under their belt including Bonnaroo and Austin
Psych Fest while earning their third Austin Music Award, the
band has continued to produce music that is unflinchingly
progressive, while evoking the classic influences of artists such
as WAR, Cymande and Funkadelic.
Brownout now has four albums under their belt including Brown
Sabbath Vol.I (Ubiquity 2014), Homenaje (Freestyle Records
2008), Aguilas & Cobras (Six Degrees 2009) and Oozy (Nat Geo
2012). Tour dates to support Brownout Presents Brown Sabbath
Vol.II, will be announced shortly.

Posted in Artists, Magazine | Comments Off on Quantic Presenta Flowering Inferno

Quantic Presenta Flowering Inferno – 1000 Watts (2LP+MP3)
Friday, May 6th, 2016 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Quantic Presenta Flowering Inferno – 1000 Watts (2LP+MP3)

Image: 1603850 ‘1000 Watts’ is the third album from the tropical reggae- and dub-infused Quantic Presenta Flowering Inferno project. This outing sees musical explorer Will “Quantic” Holland making a more concerted foray into pure reggae-roots territory, although flashes of Holland’s Colombian influences still shine through. A sun-drenched record, the LP is charged with atmosphere and a fitting tribute to dub music’s evolution.

Drawing together a set of classic style rhythms for the dancefloor, ‘1000 Watts’ was recorded direct to tape, with all the band members in the same room, for this outing, Holland enlisted his most prestigious roll-call of guests yet. Alongside Jamaican dub legend U-Roy and long-time collaborator Alice Russell, the featured artists include popular reggae singers Hollie Cook and Christopher Ellis, the late, great keyboard maestro Ikey Owens (whose tragic 2014 passing followed a career working with everyone from Run The Jewels to The Mars Volta to Jack White), and legendary Jamaican drummer Santa Davis, known for his work with the likes of Bob Marley and The Aggravators.

Now based in New York, after almost a decade living in Colombia, British producer, musician and band-leader Quantic has enchanted fans and tastemakers with more than 15 albums in as many years. Seeking out and working with some of the world’s most influential players, he has been instrumental in opening up audiences in the UK and elsewhere to countless rhythms and. ‘1000 Watts’ continues a thread of releases as adventurous as they are classic.

“A landmark collection that remains a compelling journey into a time and place: Nigeria in the 1970s, when American soul and funk (along with Anglo-American blues-rock and psychedelia) infected the roots of traditional and popular West African musical styles like highlife, juju, fuji, and apala.” Dusted magazine Strut announce a brand new repress of the third instalment in the pioneering ‘Nigeria 70’ compilation series, compiled by series curator Duncan Brooker. Excavating another choice batch of rare grooves from Nigeria’s label archives, the new edition places the spotlight on some of the deeper fusions happening across the country during the 1970s as traditional guitar highlife blended with jazz and funk, hypnotic juju grooves became more progressive and young Nigerian bands came through with their own heavy West African take on U.S. soul, funk, disco and rock.
As within much of the ‘Nigeria 70’ album series, all of the featured selections are previously unissued outside of Nigeria. Tracks range from the dynamite big band workout of Alex Ringo’s Moneyman & The Super 5 International to the Congolese guitar-drenched ‘Henrietta’ by the late Ali Chukwumah, former member of Stephen Osita Osadebe’s Sound Makers. Darker psych grooves from Don Isaac Ezekiel sit alongside a languorous highlife jam by the legendary Victor Olaiya and juju legend Ebenezer Obey cooks up a lilting, deeply beautiful mid-tempo groove from 1970 in a musical plea for peace. ‘Nigeria 70: Sweet Times’ is another essential celebration of the glut of incredible music that surfaced in post-independence Nigeria.
This is the third edition in the acclaimed ‘Nigeria 70’ series. The first volume, released in 2001, was the first compilation of its kind to explore in depth the myriad of funk and soul fusions emerging from Nigeria during the 1970s. Strut followed this with a second edition, ‘Nigeria 70: Lagos Jump’, in 2008.
‘Nigeria 70” Sweet Times’ is compiled by Duncan Brooker and features extensive sleeve notes by writer and broadcaster Max Reinhardt.

– Limited new re-press of classic highlife, juju and afrobeat collection, 500 copies only
– Definitive format: 2LP set including CD version as bonus

Various – Peru Boom
Thursday, July 2nd, 2015 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Various – Peru Boom

Image: 1597238 Tiger’s Milk present new Bass heavy Peruvian compilation. Peru Boom – Bass, Bleeps and Bumps from Peru’s Electronic Underground

build Lima’s reputation as ‘jewel in the crown’ of South America’s rave & party scenes. Tropical bass artists like Dengue Dengue Dengue, DJ Chakruna, Animal Chuki and Deltatron have long been guided by the roots of chicha and Peruvian cumbia. This sees them reshape and digitally render the original sounds fashioning new cuts inspired by dubstep, techno, trap, grime, house and electronica all aimed squarely at the dancefloor.
Detroit has techno, Chicago has house, and Peru’s DJs and producers consider Lima as the home of Tropical Bass. A global and amorphous style of music that has producers, DJs and flagbearers from various corners of the world from South Africa and Angola’s Kudoro scenes to the Baile Funk parties of Brazil, international DJs like Diplo, Switch and labels like Mad Decent have long been absorbing and redefining the sound.
Electronic music made in Peru is often influenced by the national music style ‘Cumbia’, a slow and syncopated style of music full of complex rhythms. Lima is the central meeting point for all of Peru’s Andean, African and European cultures and this is reflected by the varied music blaring out from speakers around the city. With an admirable respect for labels like Infopesa, the most influential label in ‘60s & ‘70s Peru for chicha and Peruvian Cumbia, the artists of today bring traditional and once popular sounds bang up to date, creating a new history influenced by urban Lima.
Peru Boom is the third compilation released on Tiger’s Milk (in conjunction with Strut). Following hot on the heels of the 1960’s jazz and ‘70s funk of Peru Bravo and Peru Maravilloso, this marks a new departure for the label, bringing things bang up to date with the latest electronic sounds. Martin Morales, co-founder of Tiger’s Milk Records first took inspiration for the project at a life changing rave in Lima 3 years ago thrown by Dengue Dengue Dengue.
The album cover is a commissioned work by top Peruvian artist Ruta Mare. The design combines ‘80s electronica with bold colours relative to the tropical bass scene and will look even better on physical CD and LPs

2. Deltatron ‘Ego Trip’
