Soul Messin Australia. Review: After spending too long apart due to Covid restrictions, Melbourne-based trio Cookin' on 3 Burners finally managed to get back together to work on some new heaters. The hard-hitting Hammond Organ lovers come correct again from the off with the slick old-school boom-bap hip hop stylings of 'The World John - Various - Bacalao 3 (Vinyl Cold,' but with plenty of added funky breaks.
Male and female vocals go back and forth over the beat and layer in the soul. On the flip, the laidback 'Ms Fat Booty' is a dreamy and late-night number for lovers. Play It Again Sam. It is the band's most ambitious record John - Various - Bacalao 3 (Vinyl and it takes you to Berlin and to the heart of the Federal Republic of Germany. The record is all about the city and its varied history and many myths, as well as more seductive secrets. Willgoose, Esq admits "it's quite a personal story.
Keep 'Em Movin' EP 12". Michigander US. Review: Coming off a successful transatlantic exchange, Brian Kage and his Michigander label keep the momentum, and the collaborative spirit, moving with an EP that hits closer to home.
For any Detroit artist, working with Delano Smith would be on the bucket list, as one of the city's original, more influential DJs - before the D developed any of its "waves" - who would come into his own as a producer later to, once again, help mold the Techno City's sound.
Make no mistakes about it, this tastemaker had a ripple effect back before techno even had a name, when it was just "progressive" music and mixing. The thing is, the feeling of admiration and respect here is mutual, from the moment Smith first stumbled across one of Kage's records and had to know who was making these sounds. This meeting of the minds happened organically and timely, with Keep 'em Movin' as the result. It was his only recording for the seminal label and is often said to be one of the best they ever put out, as well as one of Dolphy's own personal highlights.
Certainly fans of s avant-garde jazz will agree. Dolphy was joined by trumpeter Freddie Hubbard and bassist Richard Davis amongst others, and told all players that John - Various - Bacalao 3 (Vinyl was no leader in the recording sessions that made up the album. That makes for a dense, busy and freeform record filled with wild playing and super musical ideas. A Wild Mad Beat 7". Review: In recent years, Soopasoul has spent much of his time delivering funk-fuelled mash-ups and reworks under the Soopastole Edits alias.
Here he returns to his roots, offering a pair of funk-fuelled cut-and-paste outings that should delight B-boys and B-girls the world over. The real killer is A-side 'A Wild Mad Beat', a hard funking affair in which a relentless bassline and crunchy, JB's style funk breaks are peppered with squally sax lines, hard-wired guitar licks, dreamy chords and jazzy flourishes.
The producer makes use of his regular backing band on flipside 'Swing Down', an up-tempo funk-soul number marked out by delightful female lead vocals, punchy sax sounds and an undeniably restless groove. Not that this is to suggest preceding outings were anything less worthy than this collaborative project, which sees Sam Shepherd, the British electronic artist better known to most as Floating Points, write nine spectacular arrangements which are then performed by said brass legend, alongside The London Symphony Orchestra.
The results are spectacular, and wildly far-reaching, albeit firmly rooted in jazz with classical undertones. From the movements that made this final cut, some are whisper quiet and delicate to the point of risking breaking off if you were handling haphazardly. Others are booming loud, musical jumbo jets landing at the end of another great crescendo. Whether hushed or monumental, though, we can feel every note and bar of this masterpiece. The CURE. Planet Claire Italy. Review: The aural aesthetics of Flying Lotus go hand-in-hand with film scores.
Now we have Yasuke, his first full score. If you're unaware, Yasuke is the Japanese animated series that's been a hit among fans of Far Eastern cartoons since arriving on Netflix.
So far so factual, what about the actual tracks themselves? Well, this collection of arrangements is at once very FlyLo, and then not that FlyLo at all. Yes, there's plenty of deep genre diving going on, nodding to freewheeling jazz, prog rock, trap and more. But here it's much more minimalistic than many might be used to - resulting in a thoroughly original approach to soundtracking a samurai story, void of stereotypes, while never fully breaking from tradition.

Tresor Germany. Review: Tresor has been a global home to techno for 30 years now. The LP) was a very different place when the Berlin institution opened in but it has remained at the forefront of the gene though all its many different mutations. The club itself has been a breeding ground for new talents, dancers and DJs who have pushed the boundaries and explored new realms.
The Berlin-Detroit connection always remained strong at the club and it does here on this landmark compilation. It profiles all the key artists who helped to define Tresor, and techno at large, over three decades, and it should not be missed. Played by: Juno Recommends Techno. Review: Night Owls know exactly how to nail a signature Jamaican sound that comes laden with classic funk and soul.
They do that again on this super 7" which lands at the tail end of summer but is sure to be bringing plenty of warmth into your life for months to come. Add in guitar player Dan Ubick's lush licks and you have a real gem. Nutty Squirrel Edits 7". Review: It's always hard to second-guess Snips, a New York producer, beat-maker and remixer whose Barbershop label is as eclectic as they come.
In recent times he's treated us to an epic, hip-hop style instrumental mixtape, modern jazz reworks and a massive soulful house number on Classic. So, what has he got for us this time round? Two fine revisions of noughties neo-soul nuggets, that's what. First up he has his way with a Prince-esque number, adding weighty sub-bass and house-not-house beats to the original's acoustic guitars and punchy brass.
He's in smooth, soulful deep house mode on the flip, delivering a tidy and tasteful tweak of an old Erykah Badu gem. Rockin' Planets limited 7". On the A side, you've got part 1 which has that old school west coast flavour that many will find familiar of Greg Broussard's seminal work, while part 2 on the flip is a moodier and more cosmic affair delving deeper into the outer realm, complete with those infectious vocoded voices for added alien effect.
Played by: Juno Recommends Electro. Home hand-stamped 12" 1 per customer. Mainframe Audio. It's underground and leftfield enough to impress the heads, but also accessible, warm and tasty. If you like the output of the shadowy Ghost Phone series, it should be right up your alley. Nine CD. Review: They may only have emerged inbut Inflo's socially conscious, politically charged, impossible-to-pigeonhole Sault collective has already delivered a string of vital albums.
Mixing live instrumentation, electronics and a wealth of guest vocals, Nine is a genuinely stunning, thought-provoking album full of razor-sharp lyrics and brilliantly executed musical movements. Inside Part 2 12". Neroli Italy. Review: Second chapter of the 'Inside' series of various artists eps selected by Neroli's very own Volcov. This time with a more eclectic approach than the previous volume, exploring more electronic landscapes with Domu's downtempo ambience song aptly titled 'Point Of Entry' and Jamal Moss's unmistakable sound on his opus 'Black Hands Sound 63' on the first side.
Build The Ark limited numbered gram audiophile orange vinyl 3xLP. Music On Vinyl. Review: The Upsetters' legendary Build The Ark album is one of the many pioneering works of dub that the late great Lee 'Scratch' Perry was involved with. It brings together the very best of Jamaican reggae with a number of the more rare tracks sitting alongside some stone cold classics. This limited edition repress has been pressed to orange vinyl just times. Slow Dance 12". Athens Of The North.
Review: It's hard to keep up with the number of releases that Athens Of The North are putting out this month, but you really must try. Their first offering 'Slow Dance' is perfection - lush 80s synths, slow-motion boogie beats and drum machines marbled with little guitar riffs and soulful vocals that ate you to a better place. Two further heart melters come on the flip side and we are already in love with this project.
Jimmy's Groove limited pink vinyl 7". Colemine US. It is the last one from the session to be pressed to limited edition - and pink - 45rpm and comes in two parts. There is a playful and psyched-out 60s feel that carries over to the flipside and 'Jimmy's Groove part 2. Played by: Juno Recommends FunkOriginals. Around The World limited 7" repress. Electric Mojo US. Review: American label Mojo Electric have reissued golden oldies by the likes of Cybotron, Freestyle and Jive Rhythm Trax recently, but this could be their biggest one yet.
They continue their foray into classic electronic music with this stone cold classic. Get your hands on a French Touch classic, it is of course 'Around The World', an unforgettable early anthem from Daft Punk on a cute 7" pressing. The seminal late classic is on the A-side, followed on the flip by the bombastic bounce of 'Da Funk' - another anthem by Bangalter and de Homem-Christo.
Played by: Juno Recommends DiscoOsmose. Ipecac Canada. Review: To describe ISIS as anything other than heavy metal would be pushing it, and, frankly, a decision born from the hangover left behind by the lates genre overkill. A time when big hair and big stadiums meant big fun for big crowds but little by way of creative prowess. More fool the naysayers, though, as the sound of dark and fast and driving and atmospheric has been delivering the goods since the early days of Black Sabbath and never stopped, you just need to look properly.
ISIS are a case in point. There's so much happening in their work and none of it can be reduced to a branded t-shirt. At times they come at you with a swirling, immersive metal to get lost in. At other moments, things border on Ride-esque shoegaze.
Inwhen it reissued the package on CD, Vanguard cut six tracks to fit "The Best Of" on a single disc, leaving Eighteen of those tracks are repeated on "Pack Up Your Sorrows: Best of the Vanguard Years", which restores one of the cut songs and adds two tracks from the outtakes album "Memories", plus one previously unreleased instrumental, "Tuileries.
All of that makes the new compilation a slight improvement in terms of selection, while the CD remastering improves the sound. Ed Ward's enthusiastic but ill-informed liner notes -- he confuses the Big Sur Folk Festival with the Newport Folk Festival and makes other errors -- are not a plus. Oktoberklub - Aha Amiga, The ironically titled "Massive Hits, Vol. There's an early and drastically deconstructed version of "High Ideals and Crazy Dreams" which would later be recorded in a far superior version by Strange Parcels with Stewart on vocals, and a charmingly heartfelt and vocally amateurish rendition of the Junior Byles classic "Fade Away" performed by Ari Up.
Tracklist: 1. Fade Away 2. State Assembly 3. Private Army Dub 5. My Whole World 6. Observe Life 7. Problems Pt. Nuclear Zulu 9. Memories Misplaced Love Dreamers Stabilizer Vice Of My Enemies Sonntag, Since Vanguard signed so many top folk acts during the time, the major voices from the era are represented here. This is an excellent collection that entertains while reminding Americans that there are many types of patriotism.
Lankford, Jr. Eingestellt von zero um 5 Kommentare. Samstag, Married for a time to folksinger Carolyn Hester, he was an early intimate of Bob Dylan, and in fact recorded a collectable album with Dylan playing under the pseudonym Blind Boy Grunt and Ric Von Schmidt in After marrying Joan Baez's sister, Mimi, he LP) a folk-rock duo who released two acclaimed albums in the mid-'60s.
Eingestellt von zero um 10 Kommentare. Joan Baez - Carry It On In spite of their impending separation, the mood of the entire album is upbeat and encouraging. From the gospel "Oh, Happy Day" to the audience-accompanied "We Shall Overcome", listeners should be impressed by the social conscience typified by Harris's comments and Baez' singing. Inwhen "Carry It On" was released, Joan still had the magnificent five octave range which is vividly clear on each of the 10 songs.
Freitag, After a long legal and personal battle with Ray Davies, the singing bassist was released from his contract and set about forming the Tom Robinson Band. That afforded the singing bassist the opportunity to be an activist — spearheading Rock Against Racism — rather than merely a complainer. But a myopic outlook and limited musical range drew Robinson into a morass of sloganeering and overbearing self-righteousness that forced a major career rethink after only two LPs.
The Farinas' mix of unusual instrumentations and Dick's gift for words made them a formidable duo in the mid-sixties, his writing alternating and mixing the political, satirical, and poetic. This album showcased both's songwriting and singing talents, and backed by most of Dylan's off-duty session players, the music sounds as fresh today as then.
