  1. Avenida Das Mangueiras (SS Translation mix By Theo Parrish)
  2. Partido Alto (LTJ Experience remix)
Review: Two beautiful reversions of Brazilian funk grandaddys Azymuth right here: Theo Parrish takes the 1979 classic "Avenida Das Mangueiras" right into the heart of Detroit with icy pads, frank, no-nonsense synths and a lolloping organic bassline. Meanwhile on B we find Italian funk upstart LTJ Xperience getting ridiculously cosmic on our jackseys with his space funk rub of Partido Alto.

  1. Gregory Porter - "1960 What" (Gerardo Frisina Cuban Soul mix)
  2. Jazz Collective - "Renovation"
  3. Room 56 - "Hit The Devil"
Review: A cheeky trio of juicy jazzy joints delivered on mouth-watering orange vinyl. This charming release showcases Soulandjazz's open eared spirit with a beautiful range of grooves. Gerardo Frisina's Cuban Soul mix takes off where Opolopo's massive Kick & Bass remix left us last summer but with less tech and more organic flare. Jazz Collective take things in a more acid jazz direction with a Sunburst Band style groove and mucho mucho flutes. Room 56 conclude the frenetic freak out "Hit The Devil". Air trumpets at the ready - this one's a keeper.

  1. 1960 What? (original)
  2. 1960 What? (Opolopo Kick & Bass rerub)
Review: US newbie Gregory Porter was man of the year as far as nu-soul and funk goes and championed by the likes of Gilles Peterson,Patrick Forge & Nik Weston to name but a few. This record had an incredible amount of attention around it even before its release and to be honest, it ain't no surprise! It's just a future classic, end of discussion - it takes Detroit's fine soul and funk heritage onto a new level, showing us that classics are still very much in the making. Porter's own voice is majestic and prophetic as he talks about "Motor City burnin'" and who then goes on to deliver his powerful and emotional words. There's even a slightly "housier" remix by Opolopo, giving us the chance to also enjoy this mighty record at the centre of late-night set...this is certified Theo Parrish material right here!

  1. Fela
  2. Sandman
Review: American producer from Kansas Miles Bonny is a talented trumpet player, producer and vocalist who caught our attention after collabs with the likes of DJ Day, Shawn Lee & Suff Daddy. A Side ''Fela '' kicks off with a killer intro, utilising possibly the world's most instantly recognisable baritone sax lick from Mr Kuti's extensive repertoire. The chopped sax and organ part is looped up effectively before a heavy lead laden bass booms in for a serious contender for booty shaker of the year award. On the flip he takes a 1954 classic from Dickie Valentine, "Mr Sandman", and cuts up vocal snippets, overlaying them on top of a head nodding hip-hop groove. Highly recommended.

  1. My Zindi
  2. Regulate Your Aperitif!
Review: Resense have been on a roll in 2012, with new releases coming left, right and centre. Here we have more old-meets-new-skool frivolity, with two incendiary dancefloors excursions. Mambo is certainly the order of the day here, with "My Zindi" featuring 1940s-style crooners over a tight shuffling beat. "Regulate Your Aperitif" is insanely catchy, with a cool hip-house rap delivered over a backing that recalls "My Definition Of A Boombastic Jazz Style".

  3. Girl & Robot With Flowers (part 2)
  4. Girl & Robot With Flowers (part 3)
Review: First things first; what a title! Naturally it lives up to its enticing name. Breezy and woozy, it's harmonica heaven that leans towards country just on the right side of sad. The equally ace titled "Have Spacesuit Will Travel", meanwhile, veers more into cosmic Jeff Wayne. Parts two and three finish the set: the former's a fly-by-night Booker T/The Meters style jam while the latter winds things down in a hazy early Bonobo musk.

  1. High Heels (feat Omar)
  2. High Heels (Lack Of Afro remix)
Review: Agogo Records put out some serious jazzed out funk this year and Hidden Jazz Quartet's EP was among its best to date. The title track "High Heels" features the voice of Omar and it's a blissful modern funk piece - exactly what we want to see! On the flip it's the Lack Of Afro remix, a irresistibly upbeat and feel-good bundle of piano chords and gentle lyrics.

  3. Our World Our Style
  4. Ballroom Breakers (Combo mix)
  5. Ballroom Breakers (Rube Swinging mix)
  6. Black Cat Jive (Renegades Of Jazz remix)
Review: Having signed to Agogo Records this year, Hungarian swing-hop duo Savages Y Suefo unveil their latest material in the shape of a six track EP. "Ballroom Breakers" sees singer Judie Jay front a perky, quirky pop-swing sing-a-long. Combo serve up a piano-led interpretation and Rube Swinging deliver a trip-hoppish mix. Original, "Black Cat Jive", again is up-tempo, this time being a brass-led, mambofied dancefloor filler. With its soft reggae-tinged vibes, things relax a little for "Our World Our Style". The latter is also reworked in a meandering Jazzy style by Renegades of Jazz.

  1. Brown Oxford
  2. Alice
  3. Frederyk Swerl
Review: Considering they are only a year into their releasing life, Archie Pelago sound like a full-bodied outfit that have been in the game for years. Surfacing on the equally fledgling Mister Saturday Night imprint, this three track EP moves between warm, dancing-friendly stomp and dislocated ambience, all rendered through a canny sampling, treatment, but most importantly playing of organic instrumentation. Sax, cello and trumpet work their way into crackly beats, finding the most tangible groove on "Brown Oxford" thanks to a crisp double bass but in more esoteric climes on "Alice". "Frederyk Swerl" spreads itself across the b-side with an elongated excursion into shapeless flutters and scribbles of jazzed-out expressions that suit the talents of the three-piece perfectly.

  1. Fire (Colm K edit)
  2. Fire (Mr Scruff remix)
Review: The Honest Jons casuals, Hypnotic Brass Ensemble have stirred quite a flux of interest this year, thanks largely to their stunning follow-up LP and a successful tour of performances. Here they appear outside the walls of the Ladbroke Grove HQ and are given a fine remixing by none other than Colm K and legendary Mr.Scruff! The former reinvents "Fire" with sheer tenacity, making it clear that those delicious trumpets are the key to this track, sublime and utterly infectious funked-out soul going on here. The latter spreads those trumpets out even further and loops them over and over like non one else can - this is pretty vital stuff really...

  11. Fabiola
Review: Los Miticos Del Ritmo is a seven piece band put together by British musician/producer/DJ Will' Quantic' Holland. Since 2007, Will has resided in Columbia and this band is assembled from Vallento & Cumbia musicians living in the tropical depths of Santiago de Cali. The obvious highlights on the album are mad cover versions of Queen's "Another One Bites The Dust" and Michael Jackson's "Don't Stop Till You Get Enough", which rock the dancefloor; even for those not familiar with the Accordion and cumbia rhythms. It's not just about cover versions however, as the album also displays decent original tracks such as "Willy's Merengue" and "Cumbia De Mochilla". Recorded entirely on 4-track tape, Will's approach has been to produce an album with the aesthetics of 1960s tropical recordings that might have been made in Colombia and the Caribbean, and to these ears he has nailed it.

  1. Slipping (Into Tomorrow)
  2. So!
Review: Cheeky label Bstard Boots delivered a useful 7" from consistent Irish producer Colm K, who takes on the Steve Miller track ''Fly Like An Eagle'' - retitled here as ''Slipping(Into Tomorrow)" - and wonderfully reinterprets it as a slo-mo disco tinged affair with a gorgeously funky live bass, sumptuous strings and chugging beats. On the flip there's ''So !'', which has Colm K going even deeper as Gladys Knight and the Pips barely recognisible soul gem ''The Look Of Love'' gets the treatment with hipity hop beats and sampled strings.

  2. La Ville Rose
  3. Tryin'
Review: Chunky grooves from French production outfit Souleance, who released this brand new single ahead of the release of their debut album La Belle Vie. La Gourmandise features three tracks; first up, "Schack" has soundtrack stylised brass stabs, handclap rhythms, female wailing and a killer bassline. Up next, "La Ville Rose" uses heavy breaks underpinning a melancholic female vocal, while "Tryin" is a modern day soul fired love song with sampled vocals and stuttering beats.

  2. Girlfriend (instrumental)
Review: A six-headed funk/jazz group, The Filthy Six pluck one of the highlights of their second album The Fox for this here single for the venerable Acid Jazz label. A cover of Michael Jackson's "Girlfriend" would be hard to get wrong, but the crew make the song their own with a mix of Hammond organ, brass, Dap Tones drums and some raw and deliciously soulful vocals. Much needed 7" bad boy here!

  1. Pie
  2. OO
Review: The last two years have seen Shokazulu attach themselves closely with 2000 Black, the sub-label of London's Reinforced Records. And they hav come up with an ingenious formula indeed: this latest 2-tracker features the cosmic boogie delight of "Pie", a track so charming and seductive it will have you humming its tenacious synth chords for hours on end. If we flip over, "OO" takes things down to near Parrish level, where it's unpredictable beat hops back and forth amid gentle flutes and raw guitar riffs. Bloody brilliant, that is.

  2. I Dream Of Bahia (Dusty & Bartellow remix)
  3. Love Me Good (Yoga edit)
  4. Love Me Good (Simbad remix)
Review: In its original form, lead track "I Dream Of Bahia" is a breezy blast of humid summer air - a snappy fusion of Latin-tinged grooves, Portuguese vocals and cocktail-sporting jazz guitars. It's joined by a decent remix by Dusty & Bartellow, who turn it into a slo-mo house groove laden with sweaty Brazilian percussion and bowel-bothering sub-bass pulses. "Love Me Good", meanwhile, offers an Afro-tinged take on bumpin' soul, with a strong female vocal and more delicious guitar solos. Scene stalwart Simbad remixes, offers a remix that sits somewhere between Latin-tinged broken beat and classic US garage - all bouncy organs, skippy beats and hissing hi-hats.
