"Space Patrol" ("Raumpatrouille - Die phantastischen Abenteuer des Raumschiffes Orion") was the first German science fiction television series. Its seven episodes were broadcast by ARD TV, the first one being aired on September 17, 1966. Being a huge success with audience ratings up to 56%, the series acquired a distinct cult status in Germany and worldwide.Peter Thomas composed and recorded the original score, which has become a soundtrack classic and collector's item among rare groove afficionados since its original release on Philips. The music, floating between avantgarde jazz, big band beat and spaced-out psychedelia, set a new benchmark in the history of film music and science fiction scores and became one of Thomas' best known works. The title theme is the first known piece of music in pop history to feature a vocoder, a device that until then had exclusively been used for voice encoding in military warfare. Peter Thomas borrowed a device from the Siemens factory to process his voice for the recording of the countdown. The composer remembers: "When producing the score, I had complete creative freedom. No one had ever been into space, so no one would dare to tell me how the music should sound like."Now, 50 years on, The Mighty Mocambos teamed up with the legendary musical mastermind a recorded an up to date, truly global and funky 2016 version in tribute of the original theme. "Space Patrol (Raumpatrouille)" is the only official recording of the track released for this anniversary and authorized by Peter Thomas, who even plays on it himself. To give this 50 years version a new twist, the specially formed Mocambo Astronautic Sound Orchestra adds steel band orchestration to the massive brass and funky rhythm section.

David Nesselhauf, producer, composer and multi instrumentalist from Hamburg/Germany gives it a try. His new album re-visits a time in the Seventies, when innovative bands like Can were working on a rhythmic and experimental fusion of African music and German rock, which was labelled "Afrokraut".

Essentially, the history of British soul music is a long story about the search for identity. With his third album "Just Being Me", Ghana born singer, songwriter, producer, designer, musician and cinematographer Myles Sanko adds an essential chapter to this eventful journey. Featuring eleven new compositions, "Just Being Me" explores the inner self and transcends stylistic borders. With its rich instrumentation and colourful arrangement it speaks out as loud as a proper soul album should."For me, music is the key to communication between people. When I write, play and sing music, I do not plan it to be labelled 'soul' or 'jazz' - it just comes naturally as it is," Myles Sanko explains. With his true, emotional and straightforward style, he is able to connect past, present and future. "Of course I am inspired by the classic sounds of the Sixties and Seventies coming out of Detroit, Memphis or Philadelphia. But I grew up in the middle of the English countryside. We had no ghetto or deal with social unrest in the streets. Nevertheless, when you grow up coming from a mixed racial background into a conservative society, you need to develop a strategy of survival." One key element of this strategy was to take business in his very own hands. Myles Sanko recorded his debut mini album "Born In Black & White" in 2013. Without any distribution or marketing it sold so well that Myles instantly knew he was on to something good. "My fans crowd funded the recording of my second album 'Forever Dreaming'. That was amazing, even Gregory Porter invited me to join him as support. The band I toured with became my family."With "Just Being Me" Myles Sanko is coming home now. "This album is about love, hope and politics, and has a piece of me in every part," read the liner notes and you can't deny the truth in these words. Starting with "Freedom", a Donny Hathaway style instrumental prologue, the album flows seamlessly into the title track. "Promises" is what soul is about: Don't believe the hype, have a look what's behind empty promises. "This Ain't Living" is accompanied by some of the most delicate orchestral soul-jazz this side of Matthew Halsall or Cinematic Orchestra. "The Sunshine" is where it's at, a quiet celebration of the love for the sun. "Land Of Paradise" carries a message of hope and confidence in the lyrics, led by a hypnotizing brass section, think Gil Scott-Heron or the Last Poets walking through the streets of Manchester or London: "I Belong To You" looks back on classic, era-spanning soul ballad artistry, think Bill Withers teaming up with Maxwell and you are quite near. "Forget Me Not" stays firmly in up-to-date R&B idioms. "Missing You" brings down "Just Being Me" in an Bobby Womack style, acoustic soul, while "Empty Road" is an emotive ending to a wonderful story."Just Being Me' is a departure from what I did before and a beginning of a new journey. It is about myself as a human being, as it is about sharing between each other," concludes Myles Sanko. "What is it that you can do as a songwriter or musician? You have the ultimate tool that you can share with others, as recorded music or on the stage. As an artist you can make the most of this rare gift "

Go Deep
LP | 2016 | UK | Original (Legere)

Release:2016 / UK – Original
Genre:Organic Grooves
Soul funk powerhouse Nick Pride & The Pimptones return with their second album on Légère Recordings. “Go Deep” mixes their trademark jazzy sophistication with a gritty retro sound. Following on from the instrumental heavy "Midnight Feast of Jazz" (Record Kicks, 2011) and the diverse "Rejuiced Phat Shake" (Légère Recordings, 2014), "Go Deep" is a more focussed and consistent affair. As always with The Pimptones there's a heavy dose of funk, but this album's personality comes from ten strongly written slices of deep soul music, beautifully delivered by singer Beth Macari.

“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
