  1. Until She Spoke (6:46)
  2. Garibaldi (5:02)
  3. Garibaldi (West Norwood Cassette Library remix) (5:52)
Review: We're quite into the idea of waking up in the morning, coming over to the Juno HQ and listening to a new release by a new artist on a new label. Mystery man Tom Esselle inaugurates the newly formed Wholemeal Music with three cuts spanning house and broken beat, all salted and peppered with the right measurements of bass. "Until She Spoke" is a stepping percussive lick with gorgeous bundles of organic drum breaks and funky bass tones, whereas "Garibaldi" is a lil' moodier and reminiscent of a Theo Parrish kind of MPC jam. Lastly, the West Norwood Cassette Library man dem come in strong with a remix of "Garibaldi", transforming the original from nasty to utterly vicious thanks to grittier drums and a noticeably fatter bassline.

  1. Voodoo Jazz (4:12)
  2. Watusi Fever (3:23)
Review: Fresh from the mind of Renegades Of Jazz, Dem Juju Poets serve a bewitching brew: sharp with staccato Latin elements but rich, hazy and mystical with African and Cuban elements, it's an alluring fusion across both sides; "Voodoo Jazz" lives up to its name with lolloping double bass bassline, warm horns and insistent rhythmic vocal. "Watusi Fever" sidesteps to the left with a more complex time signature, layers of subtle percussive texture and flutes that pepper with funk. Get on this.

  1. The Extrovert City (6:12)
  2. Mister Seahorse (5:01)
  3. The Shadow Ain't Going Nowhere (5:10)
Review: Kaidi Tatham's busted beats and jazzy house licks have been favourites of ours for donkey's years. The man released a heap of material alongside the mighty Dego back in the early 2000's, and he's still putting out some utter fire in this day and age. Back on Dego's on 2000Black, Kaidi storms though with the bubbly acoustics and jazzy beats of "The Extrovert City", a tune that would have gone down like a nuclear bomb back at the mythical Dingwall's in Camden. "Mister Seahorse" is something else entirely; a tune with a slow, laid-back pace, stoned-out bass tones, and some of that classic Kaidi jazz magic that we adore. A monumental EP, and one which'll surely be a favourite among the Sound Signature fanatics. Recommended.

  1. Disna Ngai (5:05)
  2. Rikikida (4:04)
  3. La Vie (4:43)
Review: The ever-mutating twists and turns in Bolangassa's musical history continues. From his early '80s involvement in Congolese National Ballet in Paris to the roles (and instruments) he's played on various afro disco records to this new chapter. A wholly tribal affair that takes right back to his Congolese roots. Concentrated percussion where the drums sing for themselves, each of these three cuts are Shamanic in their arrangement, drive and insistency. "Disna Ngai" is the most tribal and ceremonial of the three as many hands make the rhythm work, "Rikikida" is a much slower, more rounded dynamic while "La Vie" is the peak of physical coercion as the pounding staccato hypnotises with a loopy vibrancy that most techno producers would dream of. Eye opening.

Review: Last time we heard Antony Mills and Freddie Cruger together as Wildcookie, Obama was still in his first presidential term, and the world was just that little bit simpler. Since then, however, the Homegrown label has matured and developed into the fine beast that it is now, and the duo's style is most certainly a darker shade of grey. They haven't lost their seductive, funky style, though, and the opening "What Would" is a delicious mix of anything remotely related to soul, while "Back Door" delivers a fine, electronic r&b slow-jam, and "Fly Is Now" is what soul sounds like on Saturn. This has to be one of the nuttiest, most diverse soul releases that will grace 2017, and the title track "Slave Music" will undoubtedly be imprinted in your mind upon first listen.

Review: We don't hear a huge amount of music coming out of Texas these days, especially when it's as wild and wet at this new album from the terrific Hard Proof collective. The ten-piece band hail from Austin, but they sound as if they were coming straight outta Detroit or Chicago; offering all manner of shades of funk, Stinger is a album for those that like to psych out hard. It's only their second LP but, by the sounds of explorative tracks like "Men Of Trouble", you wouldn't be able to tell. There's just so many layers to this release, where tunes like "A.R.A.S." dip into experimental percussive twists, and dive out of gnarly guitar solos, while others like "Incendiary" provide jazzier, more funked-out shapes. It's a real hum-dinger, and we all better get used to the sound of Austin...
