Sittin' On a Red Hot Stove / Nassau Beat

Big Crown is proud to present this reissue 7 inch from Texas’s own Kool & Together.The A side, “Sittin’ On a Red Hot Stove” is an infectious, medium-paced funk movement that chugs along with the help of some sharp drums from Joe and a rolling bass line that never quits. Originally edited by Texas record mogul Huey Meaux, the 45 version clocks in at just under two and a half minutes, and gave the band its strongest single. It’s an anecdotal tale of a woman who is lusted after but so mean-spirited, she could melt the romance away.Side B is an unreleased demo version from Kool & Together working up the monster “Funky Nassau”. Clearly something they never finished, the raw recording and lo fidelity of it is what give what they call “Nassau Beat” it’s charm.

Big Crown Records is proud to present this tough as nails split 7”The A side is Paul Ramos version of the Mandrill classic “Fence Walk”. Originally released on the Harlem label, and later licensed to Falcon only to oddly appear on their Kris Bravo LP. Ramos stays close to the original, but adds enough to the tune to make it a must have for funk collectors.The B side “Funky Resurgence” comes by way of vibes player/bandleader Ulysses Crockett who was a stalwart on the Bay Area scene of the 1960's first with his Latin Jazz group Afro Blue Persuasion and later Ulysses Crockett Magic. He also played in The Skins w/ the legendary Bill Graham. "Funky Resurgence" was one of several compositions he wrote for the 1971 play "Resurgence." During this period, Ulysses was also going through law school and he remains a legal voice, writer and activist in the Bay Area.

Fronted by 19-year-old singer/bassist Shannon Wise and 21-year-old guitarist/producer Max Shrager, The Shacks are already well on their way to becoming oneof the year’s big breakouts, and their remarkable debut album, ‘Haze,’ solidifies their status as a band with ability to deliver on the well-deserved buzz.When Max and Shannon met in high school, a bond was created that has permeated their music since the Shacks first incarnation four years ago. That chemistrylies at the heart of ‘Haze,’ a record so hypnotic and seductive that it feels more like a whispered late-night secret than a young band’s debut. Produced together byShrager and Big Crown co-founder Leon Michels (who’s played with Bradley, Sharon Jones, and Fields in addition to working with The Arcs, Lana Del Rey, andcountless others), the album was recorded in bits and pieces between Shrager’s basement and Michels’ Diamond Mine studio, which the Observer dubbed “theShangri La of Soul.”

XL Middleton
G-Funk Vibes Volume 2
Tape | 2018 | US | Original (Cavi Sounds)
11,99 €*
Release:2018 / US – Original
Genre:Organic Grooves
Often written off as a forgettable chapter in hip hop’s past, g-funk was an undeniable factor in cementing rap as a musical force to be reckoned with. It borrowed from Bernie Worrell’s synth lines and 70’s funk breaks as much as it did from sleeker 80’s boogie productions from Mtume, One Way, Zapp, and many others. XL Middleton aims to bridge the gap between this and today’s modern funk with G-Funk Vibes Vol. 2. The aim is to give you that same feeling you get from modern funk - sunshine and synthesizers via selections culled from XL’s personal vinyl stash. The tracks range from overlooked major label remixes to obscure private pressings. It’s the perfect soundtrack for a sunny Sunday afternoon and a cold brew - or just imagining you have both.

Irreversible Entanglements
LP | 2017 | US | Original (International Anthem)
20,99 €*
Release:2017 / US – Original
Genre:Organic Grooves
Irreversible Entanglements are a liberation-oriented free jazz collective formed in early 2015 by saxophonist Keir Neuringer, poet Camae Ayewa (a.k.a. Moor Mother) and bassist Luke Stewart, who came together to perform at a Musicians Against Police Brutality event organized after the slaying of Akai Gurley by the NYPD. Months later the group added trumpeter Aquiles Navarro and drummer Tcheser Holmes (a duo who also performed at the MAPB event) for a single day of recording at Seizure’s Palace in Brooklyn, and the full quintet’s first time playing together was captured for this debut. In four relentless bouts of inspired fire music the instrumentalists explore and elaborate compositional ideas drawn from their deep individual studies of free jazz improvisation, but the tone of each piece is driven decisively by Ayewa’s searing poetic narrations of Black trauma, survival and power. The message is the undeniable essence of the music. Though free jazz with voice is an uncommon approach in the modern day landscape of the genre, the spirit and subject the band channels and explores represent a return to a central tenant of the sound as it was founded – to be a vehicle for Black liberation. As creative and adventurous as any recording of contemporary avant-garde jazz but offering listeners no abstractions to hide behind, this is music that both honors and defies tradition, speaking to the present while insisting on the future. Irreversible Entanglements is the first collaborative split release by International Anthem & Don Giovanni Records, a partnership aimed to amplify this potent music and pertinent message to the widest possible audience.

Genre:Organic Grooves
Favorite Recordings proudly presents Le Premier Disco Sans Toi, new single EP by Andre Solomko, pursuing a collaboration that started more than 5 years ago.Born in Ukraine in 1965 and now based in Finland, Andre Solomko is primarily a rich and engaging personality, but above all, a brilliant saxophonist, composer and engineer, whose contagious passion cannot leave anyone indifferent. After beginning a meteoric career in USSR, fate led him to Finland, where he started the adventure Vinyl Jam, a label / studio / group. It resulted in two self-produced albums that will capture the attention of some international collectors, including Pascal Rioux (founder of Favorite Recordings). Between 2012 and 2014, they released 2 albums together, Où es-tu maintenant ? and Le Polaroid, hailed by many tastemakers and meeting notable success in Japan.This new single also results from a long and solid partnership, led by a shared and deep passion for analog music and vintage grooves. Announcing a new album planned for 2018, the EP unveils two new compositions with Disco flavors. Andre’s backed again by a team of great musicians and vocalists, such as Mr Day and Lili Wagner on “Le Premier Disco Sans Toi” (The First Disco without You), or Charlotta Kerbs on “Moonbeach Disco”. And if not really the first, this Disco journey fits perfectly with Andre Solomko’s Jazz-Funk style and sense of melody, showing another facet of his many talents.
King Garbage - Make It Sweat
King Garbage
Make It Sweat
LP | 2017 | US | Original (Styles Upon Styles)
20,99 €*
Release:2017 / US – Original
Genre:Organic Grooves
Zach Cooper and Vic DiMotsis return as King Garbage with their debut album, Make It Sweat. Following their 2013 debut on our Bangers & Ash 12 series (BASH003) and solo releases in 2016 - Coopers reflective, harrowing The Sentence (SUS011) and DiMotsis blistering, soulful beat tape, Mine Eyes Dazzle (SUS017) - the duo double down on soul and funk traditions to share new ways of communicating soul across eight rippers to the dome. Make It Sweat follows the sunny and smoked rhythm and blues mode of BASH003 with a greater glow (mix care of Rachel Alina, Styles ace in the hole, get to know) and peerless compositional prowess. Check the wandering, hallucinatory desert dirge Devil, the Sufjan peaks and troughs of a castaways song, Sharks, or the lover's inebriated lament for one last jam before heading home, Lost In The Sauce. Imagining the rhythm sections of Pino Palladino and Questlove amongst the vocals of Beth Gibbons or Sam Cooke will put you in the right headspace for King Garbage. Vic and Zach melt influence and experience with sheer joy, good humor and hearts full of friendship to burnish gems of dusted pop. Vics vocals interplay with Zachs guitars like a spell on Merry Go Round, their respective contributions bending under and over each other with endearing coordination. Forbidden Lovers, an ode to a friend who stays home with records instead of DJing out, ups the funky ante to the records catchiest heights. The flexibility on display is maddening - from croon to four-top harmonization, from breaks full of grit to heavenly horn sections, Vic and Zach push themselves into new territory with each track, grinning and improvising their way from one corner of the country to the next. Make It Sweat refers to Vic and Zachs personal manifesto to smile in the face of looming obstacles. A turn of phrase called out by either friend to encourage the other to play up, crank it, and go big - words of encouragement when the pressure is on and the spotlight shines its hottest. The title might taste of vice, but the sentiment couldnt be further placed. After twelve years of friendship and collaboration, the duo have learned to lean on each other and encourage forward motion no matter the outcome. Make it sweat is their rallying cry, a playful and in-the-moment call to arms. Styles have had the pleasure to grow with these two friends over the years. Though both have left the city for greener pastures in Asheville and Black Mountain, NC, they remain integral to our NY experience. Zachs smile greeted us upon landing back in the city when Styles' was only just beginning, leading us down some life-changing sonic roads to eye-opening discoveries; Vics vocals on BASH003 changed our perspective on the range of music Styles should support. It is our distinct honor to share a snapshot of King Garbages vibe, one already called upon to support the greats - Ghostface, Raekwon, and Talib Kweli, to name a few - at their North Carolina stops. King Garbage are the new crop of American soul players, the Muscle Shoals Swampers of the file-sharing generation. Zach Cooper and Vic DiMotsis compose freewheeling and heartbreakingly endearing soul, embracing the roots of American music with Cheshire grins and a sound that's all their own. King Garbage will release Make It Sweat on September 22, 2017 in digital, CD and vinyl formats.

Despite this eclectic range of international influences, Henry’s sound remains distinctively British, crazily present and in the true tradition of jazz is bold.The Easter EP sees Henry tackle a broad range of material in his original tracks and re arrangements of tracks by revered US rapper Nas and indie punk trio The Enemy.

Los Shapis, a legendary group of tropical Peruvian music, will be relaunching their first LP ‘Los auténticos’ (1981) on the 23rd of December. The revival of this album, which was one of the pioneers of Andean Cumbia, will commemorate the 36th anniversary of the band led by Julio Simeón ("Chapulín el Dulce") and Jaime Moreyra and will include emblematic songs such as ‘El Aguajal’ and ‘Como un errante’.The relaunching of ‘Los auténticos’ forms part of a project to rescue and revive Discos Horóscopo, a record label founded 40 years ago by Juan Campos Muñoz, and which boasts one of the most important catalogues of chicha music from the 70s and 80s. The label was created and can be recognized as the main driving force of Andean cumbia in Lima, as it took on producing albums of artists that gambled on not only creating a new sound, but also molding a new type of aesthetic, led by Chacalón y La Nueva Crema, Los Shapis, Pintura Roja and Los Ovnis.

We can think of fewer things more Spanish than the works of Alfonso Carlos Santisteban.He was an anarchic genius, he was scorned on, or worst, ignored. Talent and necessity as well as geniality and the most prosaic worldliness collided in his persona.If we can blame Santisteban for anything it would be for the way he lived and breathed music. A tireless Spanish music workaholic, he made no differences between copla, rumba, pop or soul and didn’t mind if it was for Bambino, La Polaca, Mara Lasso, Calibre 38, Ellas or Mila. A sincere devotee of jazz and immediately seduced by bossa and by cinematographic music, his full works, full of inevitable flaunts as well as moments of geniality, can be critiqued for negligence and an unfinished sense of accomplishment but at the same time his panoramic view and daring musical vision, sometimes just as reckless as accurate, was evident and has made his work endurable several decades later.Spanish Moog, an album Adarce Records has the pleasure to present, is one of those strange and almost invisible musical milestones that our man portrayed in Italy.Just as he wrote in his autobiography, in 1973 and thanks to the help of José Antonio de La Loma, he met two of the capos of the most important film music publishing empire in Italy, Giuseppe Campi and Giuseppe Giachi. They were about to open a C.A.M. (Creazione Artistiche Musicale) delegation in Madrid so they could start building their business in the most exciting times for Spanish film industry. The company started by signing two Spanish composers: our man, and Waldo de Los Ríos.Deception and frustration would come soon. Apart from a large number of small (or more like embarrassing) film scores, Santisteban published five library albums - catalogues of fragments and music pieces offered on a menu and sold afterwards to both co-producers as well as film producers - up until 1975 for C.A.M.: Ambiente e Folklore, Rinascimenti, Night Club, Situazione per Orchestra and this one, Spanish Moog.Five of the songs included (Jugando al toro, Nuestro Ayer, Gitanos, Torremolinos Soul and Todo ha sido un sueño) were originally recorded by Santisteban and Rafael Ferro for the album Flamenco Pop (Sintonía, 1969), and three more (Zorongo, Nuestro ayer and Tierra mojada) were originally meant for “Sabor a fresa” (Belter, 1971) by La Nueva Banda de Santisteban.Beyond the supposed editorial filibusterism what is left is a wonderful festival of grooves and beats; an omnipresent Moog, Wah Wah and ‘cañi’ soul blend in “Torremolinos soul”.Dreamy melancholy, fuzz and southern tocuh in “Tierra mojada”, impeccable arabesque beats in the steadfast “Zorongo”, funk and folklore sown tight in “Noche en Marbella” and pure space Blaxploitation in “Tute de Reyes”…As like other pioneers and talented adventurers in our country, Alfonso Carlos Santisteban would collide inevitably with a time already lost in the annals of history. We cannot think of a better way to resume his works and his person than the sentence he used to open his autobiography: …I speak with the authority given to me by failure…Text by Don Sicalíptico

Curtis & Dondi, brothers by name & nature, epitomise the strength of musical talent that Chicago was nurturing during the late 70’s & throughout 80’s. The boys started singing in their early youth, growing up in a musical environment with their Mother, a Jazz singer and their Father, her manager and also key booking agent for local acts and touring talents such as The O’Jays, Dells, Isaac Hayes, Earth, Wind & Fire to name but a few.Their breakthrough came via a bet, The Jacksons were playing at the Guys & Gals Club in the South Side of Chicago, around the corner at the Pacesetters Lounge, Curtis & Dondi’s Father struck a bet that his two boys could give a better show. Two kids aged less than 10 took to the stage to perform a James Brown cover, the first song that they learnt, and their voices & moves earned them the credit due.From then on in, the two Bullard brothers would begin to perform around the Chicago circuit, playing the clubs of their time such as The High Chaparral, Burning Spear, Budland and also of course the Guys & Gals and open up for acts like The Sylvers Band, Barry White, B.B. King. Curtis & Dondi’s Father was also a police officer and, as well as the boys playing with musicians previously mentioned, enlisted the county jail back to be their backing band on a few occasions.The aptly named Capri Taurus release (it’s name given by their Mother relating to their star signs) was recorded in 1982 at the P.S. Recording Studios, owned and operated by Paul Serrano. This prolific studio gave a voice to recordings by Terry Callier, Luther Vandross, Natalie Cole, Ramsey Lewis amongst a wealth of others. Curtis, at the tender age of 12, was the main songwriter of the group and alongside their cousin & guitarist, Carlos Showers, they came up with the tracks ‘Magic From Your Love’ & ‘Don’t Be Afraid’. Both tracks recorded in one take were then pursued by Thomas Washington a.k.a Tom Tom 84 an innovative writer, arranger and producer in Chicago to turn their tracks into a local hits.Curtis & Dondi would then hit the road on & off for the next 5 or so years, travelling around in their Fathers RV and performing in several different states at various clubs, airforce & naval bases.

Magie kann man nicht in Flaschen abfüllen. Sollte sie jemals wiederholt werden, stellt sie sich auf natürlicheWeise ein, wenn die Zeit reif ist. Was erklärt, warum wir so lange warten mussten, bis sich Gerald Toto,Richard Bona und Lokua Kanza wieder zusammenfanden, um mit "Bondeko" den Nachfolger zum Debüt"Toto Bona Lokua" von 2004 einzuspielen. Das Vokalalbum überschritt Grenzen und Traditionen, vermischteSprachen und Kulturen und schuf ein zeitloses wie zeitgenössisches Porträt der vielfältigen afrikanischenDiaspora. Obwohl es verführerisch gewesen sein mag, den Albumerfolg mit einer Kopie auf die Schnelle zuwiederholen, gingen alle drei Musiker lieber ihren Solokarrieren nach. Bis Toto schließlich vorschlug, dieFäden wieder aufzugreifen. Wie schon das Debüt wurde "Bondeko" vom No Format!-Labelgründer LaurentBizo produziert. Unter seiner Ägide entstand ein sowohl verspieltes als auch hintergründiges Album: virtuos,aber spontan, künstlerisch, aber nicht künstlich. Sinnliche Melodien und flüssige, schwungvolle Rhythmenüberlagern sich wie Wurzeln, drei unverwechselbare Persönlichkeiten werden zu einer. Ihre Stimmenverwachsen dabei so wunderbar miteinander wie die Harmonien von Crosby, Stills und Nash oder dieeinzigartigen "Vocal Layerings" von Bobby McFerrin.

Genre:Organic Grooves
Perhaps the greatest crossover artist that ever was, it is impossible to overstate the impact that Ray Charles had on the evolution of both R&B and rock 'n' roll. Charles' distinctive style transcended genres and influenced musicians from every musical background and from every corner of the globe, but it was during the mid-fifties that Charles really began to rule the R&B charts. His legendary debut LP - originally released in 1957 (and later renamed Hallelujah! I Love Her So) for Atlantic - was essentially a collection of those hit singles. In 1955 Ray had his first number one hit, 'I've Got A Woman,' followed by his second and third number one hits, 'A Fool For You,' and 'Drown in My Own Tears,' over just the next few months. Almost all of the remaining tracks on the album were also top ten hits from that same period, including 'Greenbacks,' 'Hallelujah I Love Her So,' and 'This Little Girl of Mine.' This was undoubtedly the era that defined the legend."

The legendary John Lee Hooker began his long and storied recording career in 1948, and over the next several years he released dozens of sides for the Los Angeles based blues and R&B super power label Modern. This classic LP collects some of his finest singles from 1948-1954, raw and powerful stuff that is as important as any from Hooker's entire career. Often featuring just Hooker and his guitar, or with a small backing combo, these tracks are sparse and deep, as real as the blues ever were.

Great return of the classic and pioneer band of the French Funk scene!After a long absence, Malka Family reformed, burned some scenes and composed a new album without changing anything to its magic formula. Recomposed with almost all original musicians, they come back today with a new album, Le Retour du Kif.At the heart of a still popular and multicultural Marais area in Paris, young musicians gather to jam. This is where Malka Family is formed. Their first self-produced album, Malka On The Beach, was released in 1991, and gigs were immediately chaining up all over France and Europe, famous for their eccentric costumed performance and after-parties. In 1992, Warner France signs them for a second album Tous des Oufs, a real P-Funk space opera with guests such as Sidney, Dee Nasty, Marco Prince (FFF), or Juan Rozoff...They will then traveled France, Switzerland, Italy, Holland, Denmark, Namibia, Japan ... And in 1994, the band becomes independent again and records an EP for Big Cheese Records, titled Fricassee de Funk. After a final tour for the third album, Fotoukonkass (BMG) recorded with Renaud Létang , the band finally broke up.At a time when Daft Punk is using funk artists to support their performance, when Bruno Mars & Mark Ronson's "Uptown Funk" continues to make the crowds dance, it's time for the original funkateers families to come back and teach a lesson to new generations. After the band reformed and started touring again since 2015, they quickly decided to record a new album and to leave on the roads again…

Patrice of his birth name, in tribute to the great Lumumba! Lover of words, French language, and music of course. Born in Lyon, from a Cameroonian father, musician and political activist, and a French and literary mother, he explores from his childhood the Soul, the Slam, the Funk ... and the art of telling stories, life being a great one…After years of touring alongside many bands (Conte & Soul, Legend of Eboa King, Mento Cloub, Voilaaa Sound System), and several acclaimed titles on the two albums by Voilaaa, he comes back with this project to put a bit of primordial lightness in a rainy world: A tribute to the African culture in honor of a father with "Sawa" origins, the tribe from the people of Makossa.Jojo Ngallé, Moni Bilé, Pain, Manu Dibango, Franco, Rochereau, Kabaselé, Fela, François Nkotti & The Black Style, all these legends’ vinyls have turned on the family turntable and the collection has whetted the child's appetite. Through this new trip, he revisits styles that are sometimes little known to Western audiences, such as High-Life, Makossa, Angolan Music, Afrobeat, Afro-Disco and others. We could talk about “Franc CFA”, we could talk about Jacques Foccart, but we will rather dance, because "the dancer seems naive, but his feet must be connected with earth to understand history…"Backed by the "Super Mojo Disco", a hyperactive band from Lyon with deep groove and positive energy, Pat Kalla offers us an anti-crisis project, where swaying and feel-good humor is mandatory! An album soon in the crates, beware « c’est médicament » (it’s medicine)!!

Sparrow's visit of Jamaica, “The Isle Of Springs”, during the month of June 1963, has left him with very pleasant and joyful reminiscences of the love, warmth and hospitality of its people. From the moment his plane tipped down at the “Palisadoes Airport”, at a lounge in the ultra-modern terminal building he was entertained with a “Rum Punch”, Significant of Jamaican's ability to produce rums that absolutely no connoisseur can despise. Well! And it's from there it all started, for like Oliver Twist, Sparrow continued, where ever he went to ask for more, and, obviously when the drinks are in, the wits are out. You are therefore left to deduce whatever you may during his presentation of this contribution.“I'll Be Around” (Bossa-Nova) is a warning to one of his lovers of her promiscuous traits towards him and the retribution she would eventually suffer for so doing.Theses two calypso songs were recorded with the famous Bert Inniss National Recording Orchestra. This single 7” is absolutely impossible to find and will warm any dances in the world.

Ernesto Chahoud's 'Taitu' is a collection of soul-fuelled stompers straight from the dancefloors of 1970s Addis Ababa. A breathless journey through the unique Ethio sound that bands were forging at the time, the 24- track compilation is the result of the Lebanese DJ and crate digger's decadelong love affair with the 'golden age' of Ethiopian music. Among the musical gems featured are 7's by some of the heavyweights of the scene including the godfather of Ethio jazz Mulatu Astatke and Alemayehu Eshete, the vocalist dubbed the 'Ethiopian Elvis', alongside tracks by more obscure artists such as Merawi Yohannis and Birkineh Wurga. For 'Taitu', Chahoud has selected 24 of his essential Ethio-Soul 7's, that never leave his DJ box, and together they capture this opportune moment in Ethiopian music history that saw bands experiment with an armful of influences: gliding through R&B, rock & roll, jazz, funk, soul and boogaloo. What came out was a distinctly Ethiopian interpretation: pentatonicscales, horn-driven melodies and soul-shattering vocals sung in Amharic The songs are difficult to box in to one genre but they share a simplicity and rawness, added to by their lo-fi quality - with many recordings made in rudimentary studios with only a couple of mics for the entire band.

From the pumping heart of The Magnetic System comes the “dirtiest” Da-Da-danceflooranti-jams with this lost 1979 blueprint of Italian conceptual cosmic disco played by thecream of the Goblin studio band. Ultra rare and unscrubbed, Finders Keepers finally snip thetrip from the cash machine to the trash machine. Pay dirt just got dirtier.Carving its own grubby niche as an early prototype of cosmic disco cum Italo space funkwhilst simultaneously harbouring Dada hat stand satire with a junkshop glam aesthetic thisecological illogical poplitical crab cabaret clearly broke the mould before way before the jellyhad set.Fans of “other” obtuse outernational agit-camp might find a fantasy fusion between France’sJ. P. Massiera and Sweden’s enviroMENTAL marvel Kaptain Zoom while trying to unravel theMadfilth tangle - but rest assured there were method men behind this madness and a portalto Italian funk royalty still festers at the bottom of the psych rap scrapheap.Originally drip fed out of Cesare Andrea Bixio’s Cinevox stable as one of a tight grip of nonsoundtrackLPs, made to test the label’s commercial potential, Madfilth would follow theband Goblin (and their non-cinematic Roller) as well as the hens’ teeth eponymous longplayer by the group The Motowns in what was perhaps the last-ditch attempt at custombuilt popsploitation - combining the skills of overqualified composers with undercookedconceptual mind farts! Naturally, after almost 40 years in the barrel, this micro-brewedoddity finally quenches the acquired taste of a new breed of shambolic psychotropic guzzlersproving that 1979 was obviously good year for fool’s gold. The Madfilth medicine has finallycome to cure your psychic ills so open wide and don’t bite the spoon.As both doctors and diggers will agree, always read the label. It is beneath the flamboyantrhythm rants and vari-speed osric slop of alt-comedic sarcy-satirist Alberto Macaro (a geneticbeneficiary of a vaudevillian comic bloodline) that we find The Magnetic System maestrosFranco Bixio and Vince Tempera as the sonic driving force behind this unmarked treasuretrove of B-musical diamanté discoids. It will also come as little surprise that Cinevox/DarioArgento favourites Goblin were not too distant from the whiff of this curates egg with themen who many consider to be the group’s greatest assets in bass player Fabio Pignatellialongside sports rock drummer Agostino Marangolo. It was this unison that remainedconsistent throughout Goblin’s career, weathering the temporary departure of ClaudioSimonetti and maintaining the stylistic heartbeat of the group. Madfilth’s inclusion of Goblinsynth Maverick Maurizio Guarini and the band’s mid-period guitarist Carlo Penessi (founderof the band Etna) pinpoints the jobbing Goblin session group during the time they recordedthe soundtracks for the films Buio Amiga and Squadra Antigagsters. This lesser celebratedlate 70’s era also witnessed the mutating Goblin rhythm section providing discoid backbeatsfor records such as Giorgio Farinas Discocross LP, Simonetti’s own Capricorn alter-ego andthe homoerotic nightclub spin-off Easy Going - all of which, alongside Madfilth, provide astrong mutual stylistic support system for their claim to cosmic discos deep red bloodline.

6 rare and almost forgotten benga tracks from Kenya including edits by Nik Weston, Jaakko Eino Kalevi and Africaine 808!Inculding a 16 page printed silkscreen magazine!We differenciated the repress from the first and original pressing with two details. The colour of the macaron on the vinyl has been changed and the silkscreen pressing colour printing of the magazine has been changed a bit as well.This is to make sure that the copies can be differenciated from the first pressing. Nevertheless, the quality and standards of production all remain the same.Every copy still includes the silkscreen printed magazine, the vinyl, and the silkscreen printed enveloppe.FLEE is a collective of dedicated afro-diggers, driven by the enthusiasm to find and preserve semi-forgotten genres. For their first release they focused on an old Kenyan music genre called “Benga”. The record will be completed by a printed silkscreen magazine retracing the history of the genre, which will feature original archive pictures, great authors from the region, such as Emmanuel Mwenda, as well as the writer and singer of the eclectic Kenyan Band, Yellow Light Machine, Ondiso Madete. This vinyl compiles six rare and for some unreleased benga tracks, edited by contemporary artists (Nik Weston aka Mukat, Jaakko Eino Kalevi and Africaine 808), with the aim of approaching this genre with an innovative perspective, transcending simple nostalgia.

Our latest examination of Esoteric, Modal & Progressive Jazz of the 20th Century has taken us to Japan. The liberating force of jazz has been created and felt all around the world, but few nations on earth embraced the jazz message with the passion and intensity of Japan. From the dawn of the jazz age to the present day, Japanese audiences have been renowned tastemakers, enthusiasts and champions of the music – in the 1980s, Japan was the biggest per capita market in the world for jazz records, and it has even been said that Japanese jazz fans kept the jazz record industry alive through the lean years of the 1970s, when the music fell from commercial favour in the land of its birth.But while the jazz aficionados of Japan are celebrated as sophisticated fans and consumers of the music, comparatively little is known outside Japan of the remarkable and abundant music produced by generations of Japanese jazz musicians. Numerous Japanese jazzers have found enormous success on the international stage – Toshiko Akiyoshi, Sadao Watanabe, Teramasu Hino, and many others are household names among jazz listeners all over the world, and with good reason. But if such global figures are put aside, the stunning heritage of Japanese jazz remains poorly understood outside Japan. As a result, the work of many celebrated Japanese jazumen has remained largely unknown to international audiences, and the extraordinary scope and depth of Japanese jazz has not been widely recognised.Compiled for the Spiritual Jazz series in collaboration with the celebrated collector and DJ Yusuke Ogawa (Deep Jazz Reality, Tokyo), this 2CD/twin set of double LPs aims to correct that omission by uncovering the uniquely deep sound of esoteric, modal and progressive jazz from Japan – music of the heart, soul and Japanese spirit!

Nat Birchall charts new paths toward spiritual communion, connecting jazz with classical Indian influences guided by the wistful flow of the harmonium.Cosmic Language sees the UK-based saxophonist, composer and arranger return to Jazzman Records with a cross-cultural approach: an exploration of the parallel musical paths of jazz and Indian ragas. Here he takes influence from spiritual jazz forebears such as Alice Coltrane and Yusef Lateef and introduces the Indian harmonium to his band, where it takes the place of the piano. Making new connections to realise his transcendental ambitions, it's a logical next step in making music as spiritual cleanser.The idea for the album was spawned from a one-off performance at a meditation centre, the Maharishi Golden Dome in West Lancashire. Seeking to bring a band set-up that was fitting to the quiet-minded setting, Birchall brought the harmonium with him. A small pump organ, it's an instrument he'd been in possession of for many years but hadn't previously used in his music. Building on the spiritual context of that show, and the associations of that instrument, it led naturally to the musical approach undertaken on the album.

Comet presents the reissue of Black Voices (1999), featuring remastered versions and “Ariya (Psyche Juju Mix)” as bonus track, which was not part of the original release.Tony Allen completely rewrote the books on what was possible within the AfroBeat genre with his stunning 1999 album, Black Voices. When one considers exactly "what" is going on throughout Black Voices, it is quite mind boggling, as it is almost impossible to associate a minimalist, electronic feel with the massive walls of sound which Allen was known to create.Yet these walls of sound are still very present, yet they gain an entirely new feel due to the presence of the producer, Doctor L. He takes the mesmerizing rhythms that Allen creates and he spins them into a stunningly modern sound. While Doctor L's production work throughout Black Voices is truly fantastic, it is clear that the genius behind the album lies within the mind of Tony Allen. With the absolutely mesmerizing, funky grooves that Allen creates, it comes a little surprise that the vocal collaborations are handled by members of one of the funkiest bands in history: Parliament-Funkadelic.For almost two decades, Black Voices has remained a stunning example of the fantastic results that can occur when seemingly unrelated genres clash.
