Wonder Zebra / V.L.A.M. (Lack Of Afro Remix)
7" | 2016 | Original (Rocafort)
7,99 €*
Release:2016 / Original
Genre:Organic Grooves
After the successful "La Jupe Volante" project, whose B-side has been synchronised on the Australian TV series the Offspring (Channel Ten); Kind & Kinky Zoo are back with some hard hitting pure laidback style music. They have received massive support both in the clubs and on the airwaves and now they are back, with on the flipside the help of Lack of Afro, or Adam Gibbons as he's known to his psychiatrist. Two pistol paced and good-natured tunes as they are very capable of. A Side - WONDER ZEBRA Somewhere between retro psychedelia and afrobeat lies the Wonder Zebra. Speeding along à la Calibro 35, the feel is frantic and thrilleresque. Now wonder Kind & Kinky Zoo are a big hit on foreign TV shows. B Side - V.L.A.M. (LOA remix) A breezy bite-sike chunk of head nodding, foot tapping funky beats. Led by a warm, sunny flute and irresistable rhodes, rather reminiscent of a 60s slice of dancefloor-friendly acid jazz. Small but perfectly formed.

Khruangbin
The Universe Smiles Upon You
LP | 2015 | UK | Reissue (Night Time Stories)
24,99 €*
Release:2015 / UK – Reissue
Genre:Organic Grooves
Taking influence from 1960's Thai funk - their name literally translates to "Engine Fly" in Thai - Khruangbin’s debut album ‘The Universe Smiles Upon You’ is steeped in the bass heavy, psychedelic sound of their inspiration, Tarantino soundtracks and surf-rock cool. The Texan trio is formed of Laura Lee on bass, Mark Speer on guitar, and Donald “DJ” Johnson on drums. ‘The Universe Smiles Upon You’ was recorded at their spiritual home, a remote barn deep in the Texas countryside where their first rehearsals took place. The band listened to a lot of different types of music on the long drives out to the country but their favourites were 60s and 70s Thai cassettes gleaned from the cult Monrakplengthai blog and compilations of southeast Asian pop, rock and funk. This had a heavy impact on the direction of the band, the scales they used and the inflection of the melodies; which coupled with the spaciousness of the Texan countryside culminated in Khruangbin forming their exotic, individual sound. Repress on black vinyl in regular sleeve.

"Whether it’s Hip Hop, it’s face pointed reverentially to the Old School, or House stealing Disco riffs by the truck load,people are increasingly intrigued by back-in-the-day. And common to both the aforementioned scenes and much more is one person, Arthur Russell, a man some regard as the best songwriter of the 20th century.In 1981 Arthur set up Sleeping Bag Records with Will Socolov. The first release was the album “24-24 Music” as Dinosaur L. If you’re wondering about the name it would appear Arthur would often use the names of extinct or near-extinct animals. On one production credit he’s “Killer Whale, whilst the logo for Sleeping Bag is a Koala bear! Will remembers how they came up with the name for their label.“We were joking about names, and James Brown was on with “Papa’s Got A Brand New Bag” and I was sleeping in a sleeping bag in my apartment and I kind of made a joke about that, and Arthur said that was a great idea for the name of the company!”The line up was pretty much the same as the Loose Joints sessions, (which boasted the Ingram Brothers rhythm section) and a similar stream-of-conscience approach was taken with the recording itself. Russell arranged the beats so there’d be a change every 24 bars (hence the title) and the band would have to improvise the songs over the top. He also made sure he went into the studio when there was a full moon! The album is again very experimental, and makes occasional uneasy listening but the same magic is very much in evidence. Arthur would continue to be involved in production and mixing duties for the label, but parted company with Socolov in 1985. Arthur sadly died of AIDS in 1992 leaving behind many songs; as one obituary put it, it was though he simplyvanished into his music."

Do you long for a time where you could head out have a good time and dance your pants off? Well The Allergies invite you back to the glory days of Northern Soul, high kicks and throwing yourself around the floor with their new single 'Entitled to That'. It's an up tempo stomper with feel-good Soul sensibilities that would be equally at home at the Wigan Casino as it is on today's festival circuit. Following on in the same vein that made their 6 Music album of the day record – 'As We Do Our Thing' so popular, they continue to reshape classic sounds for the modern dancefloor.Talented Soul songstress Honey Larochelle provides the sass in this peppy number co-penned with The Allergies by regular collaborator Andy Cooper (Ugly Duckling). This second single taken from their forthcoming album 'Push On' shows they've lost none of the verve that made their debut so good, and gives another taste of what to expect from the LP.

Triple LP version comes with bonus 7”, detailed liner notes (8 page full colour booklet) and free MP3 download.Conceived by Colombian musician Mario Galeano, the force behind the band Frente Cumbiero, and English producer Will ‘Quantic’ Holland, Ondatrópica brings together an all-star cast representing both the classic and modern styles of la musica Colombiana. Over 3 weeks in January 2012 at the famous Discos Fuentes studios in Medellín legendary figures from Colombian music joined a group of younger Colombian musicians that included members of both Mario’s band Frente Cumbeiro and Quantic’s Combo Barbaro. The plan; “to re-interpret the tropical musical heritage of Colombia with new approaches in composition, arrangement and production in a classic and mythical setting.”For the recording Will and Mario were joined by Colombian legends including big-hitting saxophonist Michi Sarmiento, multi-instrumentalist Fruko and accordion-playing don and singer Anibal Velasquez as well as a new wave of Colombian and South American musicians such as Chilean MC Ana Tijoux and El Chongo, a young percussionist and beatboxer from the city of Cartagena on the Caribbean coast.A mixture of well known and classic Colombian styles such as cumbia, porro, gaita and champeta clash head-on with boogaloo, ska, beat-box, hip hop, dub and funk on the record. The tracks range from straight-up timeless pieces with one foot in the 1960s and 70s to progressive and forward-looking recordings firmly rooted in the 21st century. Mario and Will also adopted a 100% analogue recording approach in tribute to a sound and feel that the studio had been lacking for some years now.Soundway’s exploration into Colombian music began in 2007 with it’s much acclaimed compilation ‘Colombia! The Golden Age of Discos Fuentes The Powerhouse of Colombian Music 1960-76’. That compilation features many original works from the above-mentioned artists as well as some of the main session men of the day that also played on this new record. It’s fitting then that Ondatrópica came together in the legendary Discos Fuentes studios in Medellín.

Peter Fish is mainly known as a composer/arranger/producer for feature films, Top 10 singles and network television series. But jazz lovers will probably recognize him for his quality work as a jazz composer and multi-instrumentalist. During the 70's young Peter Fish moved to New York and found himself in an environment where he was constantly surrounded by music and co-talent. It didn't take long before Peter Fish created a collective of jazz musicians. Fish and his band of musical minds performed regularly throughout New York's club circuit. Ali's Alley (drummer Rashied Ali's spot), Barbara's in Greenwich Village, Mikell's on the Upper West Side and small clubs in Brooklyn where places you could frequently drop into a beautiful session. This wonderful group of players included some who would go on to be amongst the brightest lights of modern jazz, including Jay Clayton (Vocals) and Adam Nussbaum (Drums). In the summer of 1975 Peter gathered his collective to record 5 compositions . The outcome was this great album 'THE SILVER APPLE' heavily influenced by Coltrane and his quartet, as well as by Cecil Taylor, Maurice McIntyre, Roswell Rudd and many musical greats. It's a monumental LP as it will take you back to a truly unique time of jazz in New York.

Tony Allen, the legendary drummer who's amassed a formidable catalogue both as a solo artist and as part of Fela Kuti's band, has taken over percussion duties from Vladislav Delay. Together, von Oswald, Loderbauer and Allen form something close to a dream team, two masters of the electronic sphere meeting an afrobeat pioneer. Allen had already established a rapport with the group before they entered the studio to record Sounding Lines - he's been touring with von Oswald and Loderbauer for more than a year, playing live shows around the world. There has been an evolution on each new Moritz Von Oswald Trio record, and Sounding Lines is no different. The album, which was mixed by Ricardo Villalobos, maintains the project's trajectory—a fearless exploration of dub techno, classical music and jazz—but the prevailing mood feels looser and more organic than ever before. Allen's imperious percussive work sits tantalisingly in the mix. His drums meet the electronics of von Oswald and Loderbauer in a way that renders the project in new, vivid colours. There are 4/4 tracks, beatless interludes and complex jazz structures, with propulsive recordings ("3") coexisting alongside more languid moments ("1"). Sometimes Allen provides flourishes of drums (notably on "4") while at other times spectral synths come to the fore (as on "5"). Von Oswald, a masterful composer and arranger with a deep understanding of space, paints the crevices of each composition on Sounding Lines with rich detail. Individually, von Oswald, Loderbauer and Allen are formidable and hugely influential musicians. As a trio, they've conjured something remarkable.

Genre:Organic Grooves
With the full length, “Return To The 37th Chamber” dropping April 2017, El Michels Affair releases another flawless two sider to hold us over.Side A’s cover of “Tearz” is as much an homage to the Wendy Rene sample as it is to the classic Wu-Tang Clan track.The song starts as a glazed over cover of "After Laughter" with Shannon Wise of The Shacks singing Wendy Rene's timeless mantra. Halfway through, the mood dramatically shifts and the drums and organ that drive the original RZA sample, take over. A dubbed out Lee Fields taps in like only he can, and the song spirals into outer space.Side B finds EMA dipping into the deeper side of the Wu catalog with Raekwon’s “Verbal Intercourse”. Mixing the grimy, gritty production aesthetic of the original with elements of dubbed out reggae, El Michels Affair once again pushes the definition of a “cover” and truly makes it a tune of their own.

Genre:Organic Grooves, Electronic / Dance
Musicality's second release is a remake of the Gil Scott Heron B-side "The Klan", featuring Allan Barnes formerly of the Blackbyrds, and Craig Huckaby. The A-side has a wind and keys driven retro-funkiness, aided by Latin percussion. KemeticJust's remix on the B glues everything together into a slightly faster house-tempo, increasing the propulsion, and likely causing lively dancing to break out. It was mixed by Pirahnahead at United Sound Systems, and mastered by the legendary Herb Powers. Musicality is the brainchild of producer/DJ Seth "Dedikate" Carter.

The comrades of Tiny Hearts (Waajeed, Dede Reynolds, Tim K) met at a bar beneath the J train in New York City. Cadillac margaritas and invisible hands pushed the three to a southside basement for a late night listening session. Resulting remixes led to original mixes, and the group was formed. Voices from the beyond, esoteric concepts and milkshake metrics all played a role in this groups' fruition. The result: a reflection of intention.

50.000 Lightyears / Space Race
7" | 2012 | US | Original (Ubiquity)
8,99 €*
Release:2012 / US – Original
Genre:Hip Hop, Organic Grooves
“50,000 Lightyears” is an exercise in minimal, raw, psychedelic funk. Awash in organs, and synths backed by the heaviest of drums with a track intro that recalls early Silver Apples electronic experiments mixed with James Brown Band arranger David Matthews’ excursions with the Grodeck Whipperjenny. The B-side "Space Race" ups the tempo and dials up the drums even more with a banging breakbeat that continues and doesn‘t let up through the whole song. Organs, synths and heavily effected guitars filter in and out of the track to keep it on the “spacey” and “experimental” side of things. Not much is know about Sputnik-1 other than they originated from the remains of what was formerly the U.S.S.R. and their recordings were all done using vintage Soviet gear and instruments.
