Born out of the legendary Paradise Bangkok sessions run by DJs Maft Sai and Chris Menist in Thailand, The Paradise Bangkok Molam International Band play vintage molam music from Isan, in the North-East of Thailand, with a 21st century twist.Featuring Kammao Perdtanon on phin, (Thai lute) Sawai Kaewsombat on khaen, a type of bamboo harmonica, and backed by Piyanart Jotikasthira on bass, Phusana Treeburt on drums and Chris Meniston percussion the band have just completed a successful 2nd tour of Europe, which included a supportslot for Damon Albarn in Berlin, as well as gigs in Germany, France, Switzerland, Belgium and the CzechRepublic.Whilst based on the traditional molam sounds of Isan, the band also draw out the trance-like qualitiesof the music be it the repeated motifs of ‘Sao Sa Kit Mae’ lead by Sawai’s ethereal khaen, or the driving grooves of ‘Lam San Disco’ where Kammao’s psyched out phin comes to the fore. Rooted in traditionyet with an eye to the future, The Paradise Bangkok Molam International Band have already made waves on the live stage, and their first studio recording very much continues in the same vein.Chris Menist and Maft Sai are also behind the highly acclaimed ‘The Sound of Siam’ compilations onSoundway Records, as well as releases for Finders Keepers, Light In The Attic and their own ParadiseBangkok label.

The Allergies are back with another slice of 45 action. 'Love's Supposed To Be' takes you back to the glory days of Northern Soul, with an upbeat rhythm section driving the track, and a sing-along vocal that cuts through perfectly. On the flip is the crowd pleasing title track taken from their album, 'As We Do Our Thing'. Brandishing punchy horns, Motown-esque drums and unapologetic samples, this track is the embodiment of what they're all about.This is without a doubt a must have piece of wax that would be at home in anyone's 45 collection.

High up in the skies, amongst the clouds, Rocket Juice & The Moon was born. Literally. It happened back in 2008, when Damon Albarn, Flea and Tony Allen convened on the same Lagos flight, to play and exchange musical ideas in that city as part of the Africa Express collective. Relishing a shared enthusiasm for one another’s work, and bonding immediately, there and then the triumvirate laid down the blueprint for Rocket Juice.Still, more than a year passed before conditions were set for three weeks together at Albarn’s West London studio, recording and refining two-dozen startlingly out and deeply funky instrumental grooves. The next stage was to invite onboard some extremely talented friends, with further sessions in Dallas, New York, Chicago and Paris… Erykah Badu, no less, queen of contemporary soul. Three companions from Africa Express: Malian singer Fatoumata Diawara, whose debut album has topped World Music charts since its release last Autumn; her multi-talented compatriot Cheick Tidiane Seck, whose prodigious keyboardism has lit up releases by artists ranging from Youssou N’Dour to Hank Jones; the young, Ghanaian rapper M.anifest, quizzically existential, switching seamlessly between Twi and English. And the Hypnotic Brass Ensemble, long-time stalwarts in the Honest Jon’s set-up — since one of the team discovered them busking near the shop in Portobello Road, on his lunchbreak — with a second album for the label due in May… Finally, the tracks were dispatched for mixing to Berlin, to be meticulously honed, polished and envenomed by Mark Ernestus, one half of the legendary Basic Channel and Rhythm & Sound partnerships.The result is Rocket Juice & The Moon — out March 26, 2012, on Honest Jon’s Records — a triumphant exploration and proliferation of kinetic Afro-funk rhythms: organic, exuberant, communal music-making, evidenced by the project’s live debut on stage as part of the Honest Jon’s Chop Up in late 2011, which hit London, Marseille, Dublin, and Cork to such great acclaim (witness the flurry of smart-phone film-clips uploaded in the days thereafter).From the inaugural bars — that absurdly funky slice of instructional timekeeping, 1-2-3-4-5-6 — the liquid pulse of Fela Kuti’s classic recordings drives the action through a suite of 18 shape-shifting compositions. The greatest drummer in the world has never sounded so good as he does here. His intricate cross-patterns jostle and lock with Flea’s nimble, rumbling bass riffs. Joined by Seck on There and Extinguished — ‘when you dispose of something burning, be sure it’s out’ — Albarn’s keyboards spray synth fusillades up top, over, and under… splicing into the mess of wires running between the freaked Afro-disco of William Onyeabor and the space-jazz-moog of Sun Ra. The HBE brings extra intensity and drama to Leave-Taking — likewise Flea’s trumpet to Rotary Connection — teasing out the haunting melody coiled in the mix.Where the best of vintage Afrobeat sides sustained their concentrated energies over the course of sprawling, marathon jams, RJ & TM manages something altogether different: the group bottles the idiom into capsules of funk… and real songs. Beautifully buoyed by Erykah Badu’s unmistakable vocals, Hey, Shooter brilliantly traverses metaphysical spaceways sans any semblance of noodling. Lolo and Follow-Fashion — featuring the open-hearted sensuality of Diawara’s singing, M.anifest’s quick, brawny science, and more brass blasts — play like its musical cousins or codas. Indeed, the album’s shrewd sequencing creates the composite effect of tracks working both individually or within the context of an extended song-cycle.The lovely ballad, Poison, is bittersweet and ruminative: ‘If you’re looking for love, beware the signs / They will paralyze you one by one / Poison, it will only break your heart.’ Down-tempo and dubby, Check Out and Worries amplify the range of styles and moods. And by the time of Fatherless — a chugging Afro blues that evokes John Lee Hooker lost in Lagos, one gets the sneaking suspicion there’s very little outside the reach of this collective’s inventive musical grasp.There is, in fact, a palpable openness pervading Rocket Juice & The Moon — the sense of a limber willingness to follow creative impulse — right down to how the group acquired its name. When Ogunajo Ademola — the Lagotian commissioned to do the album’s cover artwork — dubbed his submission ‘Rocket Juice & The Moon’, it quickly morphed into the formal name of the project, like trying to hold onto mercury.Surely, the stars above also approved.

The San Francisco Bay Area tradition is as one of those magical centers of musical energy, sending out waves of jazz, psychedelia, rock and funk into the ears of the world. The M-Tet carry on that tradition. Featuring Joe Baer Magnant on guitar, Gary Pitman on Hammond organ, Chris Lujan on bass and Michael Reed on drums, the M-Tet have for the past few years been honing their own very special sonic blend.The M-Tet has managed to wrap up the entire history of Hammond-led groups, from their earliest days when jazz and R&B were wrestling in urban barrooms, through the soulful bookends of Booker T and the MGs and the funky Meters, and into the future, yet never losing sight of their roots.Here, with their new release, the M-Tet offers up fourteen statements of the groove guaranteed to please everyone from the dusty-fingered connoisseur to the Friday night good-timer looking for something to shake it to. Limited edition on 180gram vinyl of 500 copies!

For the first time in more than a year, Because Music is running a limited repress of Selah Sue‘s sold out EP ‘Alone’. Released in late 2014, it paved the way for her second album ‘Reason’ (more than 185,000 copies worldwide since its release in March 2015). Shifting to a more pop-oriented sound under the supervision of producers Robin Hannibal (Rhye, Kendrick Lamar) and Ludwig Goransson (Childish Gambino, Haim), this EP features her flagship collaboration with American rapper Childish Gambino ‘Together’ and an exclusive acoustic version of the track ‘Won’t Go For More’. A throwback to the exciting times when everybody was impatient to hear Selah’s new creations after her best-selling debut album.

Back in! Fasaan Records from Malmo, Sweden's latest label incarnation has arrived: CHALICE RECORDS! It's very much a modern Boogie affair, a slick and very well turned out three piece which could easily have been rescued from 1/4 inch tape tucked away in some early 80's mid-western recording studio. It's that good! We're firmly in PPU territory as the drum machines snap and the funk fuelled bass lines underpin those classic verse / chorus constructions & Soul melodies albeit in dub form. Sasac nails the vibe down perfectly with an uplifting jam that rolls along like an endless Pacific coast highway. On the flip Witch Doctor's "Inner Vision" is a smooth and seriously addictive mid-tempo workout, while Golden Ivy wraps it all up with some expertly laid out Dam Funkery.

Truth & Soul Records is proud to announce the re-release of Lee Fields' "Problems". The sonic palette of this record reaches far and wide, ranging from the rampaging psychedelic funk of "Bad Trip" to the softer introspective sounds of "Honey Dove", but that's just the beginning. The album opens up with "The Right Thing", a gripping tale of love found and love lost, set to the super heavy popcorn meets afro-funk backbeat. In "I Don't Know Where I'm Going (But I Know Where I Came From)" the lays down a super heavy, Bobby Byrd-esque groove with Lee emoting frankly about perils people face and about finding your own way. We find our way to the title track, "Problems" a meditation on many of the trials and tribulations that Lee himself has had to overcome over the years.

“My Certainty” is the third album by The Impellers and according to the band, their most accomplished yet. With their previous releases “Robot Legs" (Freestyle) and “This Is Not A Drill” (Légère/Mocambo) this group from Brighton have established themselves as a tight and authentic raw funk unit. With “My Certainty” the band - featuring vocalist Clair Witcher and composer, producer and multi-instrumentalist Glenn Fallows - explore fresh territory. “We wanted this album to be different to other material we’ve produced, but still keeping the big and heavy sound which people have liked about us. There’s a couple of reasons why we hope this album will surprise people,” Clair Witcher explains. With "My Certainty" there's no question that The Impellers have re-invented their sound. "We've used different musical styles which match the stories and sentiments in each of the songs. There's a couple of soulful ballads, some acoustic folky soul, a bit of R&B-inspired stuff. Having said that, there's a load of influences from individual band members too, which seem to bleed through into the overall sound," Glenn Fallows

Dark, triumphant and mysterious, the new Menahan Street band 45 single "Light's Out" conjures images of hard-fighting pugilists battling it out under a bare bulb, of a matador's graceful execution of a lumbering bull, of sweat, romance and victory. Brought in by a rollicking, almost tipsy, Hammond melody and backed by a smoky smooth guitar line, “Keep Coming Back” eventually erupts into a swanky nightlife anthem, complete with red velvet curtains and a garnished highball. Both songs are featured on their upcoming full-length titled, The Crossing.

Since more than 20 years, Robert Aaron is the man to call when you look for a great sax player for a session. Robert taked part of all the musical movements in NYC since the end of the 70’s from No Wave (James Chance), Hip Hop (WU Tang, Wycleef Jean), House (he released a classic EP on Eight Ball “saxophone in the ozone”), Rock (he played on David bowie’s classic “Let’s dance”). For the first time, he recorded an album under his own name in Paris, an Heavenly Sweeetness Exclusive. He Called some of this friends to play with him : the Malian Keyboard maestro Cheick Tidiane Seck (Amadou & Mariam, Dee dee Bridgewater), Steve Mac Raven on drums, Cuban congero Emilio Del Monte, Monnette Sudler and the poet Anthony Joseph. The result is a great Soul Jazz album for the 21th centuary.

The Moritz Von Oswald Trio opens a new chapter. There's a new configuration to the project, with Tony Allen joining original members Moritz von Oswald and Max Loderbauer. 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.

Approaching his eighty-fifth birthday, sharp and lean, Phil Cohran lives a couple of blocks from the lake on the north side of Chicago. His modest apartment is filled with a palpable richness. His cornet and trumpets, zithers, French horn, harp and frankiphones (an electric kalimba of his own invention); his beloved telescope; African art; a mural of the Chinese monastery where Muslim monks bestowed on him the name Kelan (‘holy scripture’); hand-printed posters from the culture wars of 1960s Chicago; all reflect a life dedicated not just to music, but also to science and astronomy, to history and activism. In its range of subject matter the track-list of Kelan Philip Cohran & The Hypnotic Brass Ensemble embodies this invigorating and all-embracing curiosity: a Mexican hill-town filled with perfume and flowers… an Illinois state prison where Cohran taught inmates in the 1960s… heavenly dancers in the temples of Cambodia… a tribute to a sixteenth-century Venetian musicologist. Welcome to the musical world of Kelan Philip Cohran.Cohran was born in Mississippi and grew up in St Louis. In the immediate post-war years St Louis was a jazz heartland, home of stalwarts like Clark Terry and Oliver Nelson (both of whom he played with), not to mention a genius called Miles Davis. In 1950 Cohran moved to another heartland, Kansas City, where he played trumpet in one of the hardest swinging swing-groups, led by Jay McShann (who famously had given Charlie Parker his first job). With McShann he spent “the best year of my life”, touring as far as Mexico and playing proto-rock’n’roll in Texas with the likes of Big Mama Thornton on vocals. Back in St Louis Cohran led his own group, the Rajas Of Swing, whose show involved wearing red jackets, grey slacks, blue suede shoes and turbans.Then in the mid-50s he moved to Chicago. He had a small group with a friend, the legendary tenor saxophonist John Gilmore, whose regular gig was to play at Sarah Vaughan’s weekly ‘birthday’ parties, an excuse for the Sassy One to splash the cash and have some fun. (“What, Sarah Vaughan would sing with you and John Gilmore?” “No way, Sarah didn’t sing, she was too busy partying.”) And in 1959, through Gilmore, he was invited to join Sun Ra’s Arkestra, at a crucial period in the evolution of that extraordinary group. Effortlessly wrapping traditions as divergent as boogie-woogie and electronica in an Afro-centric, intergalactic mythology of his own making, Sun Ra casts a huge shadow across conventional narratives of jazz history. “With Sunny”, Cohran simply says, “I found my own voice”.You can hear the emergence of this voice on the LP Angels And Demons At Play, recorded in 1960 - Sun Ra’s masterpiece from the period. On the track Music From The World Tomorrow, against the urgent whipped and chopped percussion of the Arkestra, it is Cohran’s zither, initially bowed and then plucked and strummed, which is the track’s magic ingredient. More profoundly it was Sun Ra’s example – his defiant self-confidence and sense of purpose – that set Cohran on his own (to quote another Ra composition) ‘pathway to unknown worlds’. Indeed this spirit of self-belief led Cohran to turn down the invitation to accompany the Arkestra when Sun Ra moved east in 1961.Staying in Chicago, Cohran founded the Affro-Arts Theater and performed with the Artistic Heritage Ensemble, recording the group for his own Zulu Records imprint. (Co-members went on to become Earth Wind & Fire; Cohran taught the group’s leader Maurice White the mysteries of the frankiphone). The AACM, a musicians’ collective of immense influence and importance, had its first meeting in Cohran’s front room. With Oscar Brown Jr and Gene Page he wrote and performed in a show celebrating the nineteenth-century Afro-American poet Paul Lawrence Dunbar. He taught music tirelessly in schools and prisons. His studies into music theory and history led him to the discovery of a key book in his life, Gioseffo Zarlino’s treatise on harmony, published in Venice in1558. Astronomy is another passion and another area of expertise. One of the gems of the Cohran discography is African Skies, with its lovely harp playing, commissioned by the Chicago Planetarium in 1993.In Chicago he also raised a large family. Many of his children have gone on to become professional musicians; eight of them are the Hypnotic Brass Ensemble. For each of them, their first teacher was their father, who famously insisted on giving them music lessons not just for several hours after school, but for several hours before school as well. Their father’s music was all around them as children; they all vividly remember lying in bed at night not being able to sleep because their father was rehearsing with the Jazz Workshop downstairs.For the Hypnotic Brass Ensemble, the voyage to where they are now – whether tearing up festivals from Glastonbury to Melbourne, or touring with Gorillaz, or recording their first album on Honest Jon’s – has involved a necessary stepping away from their father’s shadow. Phil Cohran is the first to recognise this, happily allowing their sound – heavy on the funk, with the urgency of hip hop never far away – to blossom.But likewise this album is for all of them a natural step. Recorded in Chicago in June 2011, the idea was beautifully simple – “my music and their band” as Phil puts it, “we don’t have to rattle on more than that”. Only to point out perhaps that here - in the majestic surge of Zincali, for instance, or in the sheer verve and bounce of Cuernevaca - is music not just filled with the warmth of home. This is music that plumbs the depths and rings with joy.
