The Shaolin Afronauts – Quest Under Capricorn

null

2011′s debut album from The Shaolin Afronauts ‘Flight Of The Ancients’ was a critical and commercial success story, lauded as a truly original blend of the sounds of 1970′s West Africa, Ethiopia and the pioneering and progressive avant-garde jazz artists of the same period. Now in 2012, The Shaolin Afronauts continue their musical journey with the follow up album ‘Quest Under Capricorn’ and the groups musical progression is apparent from the outset. Quest Under Capricorn marks a development and progression of The Shaolin Afronauts sound, which evokes the spirit of the mighty Sun Ra, Mulatu Astatke, Fela Kuti, John Coltrane and a host of other free thinking musical pioneers and explorers… and sets the group well apart from the glut of less explorative and imaginative groups of a similar ilk. The Shaolin Afronauts return with a highly original sound made up of classic influences, but tailor made for the 21st century.

Shawn Lee – Synthesizers In Space

null

Driven by his discovery of a vintage ‘mystery-box instrument to create a diverse, densely layered collection of Fatboy Slim hooks, T. Rex rockers, built on real drums, swathed in a crusty, magnetic sound.

“For me, being creative is a natural bodily function, like breathing and eating,” Shawn Lee says from his London studio as he reflects on the whirlwind effort and inspiration he experienced in developing his latest album, Synthesizers in Space. It began at a music store called Switched On in Austin, TX and the discovery of a vintage “mystery-box” instrument hidden amongst the old synths and organs that created sounds and textures unlike anything currently in his sonic arsenal.

The result was a focused attack in the studio, creating a set of 11 new tracks based around the “mystery box”, and a range of psychedelic grooves. Synthesizers in Space is a diverse, densely layered collection from a musician known for his ability to blend sunny melodies, smoky grooves and propulsive rhythms into his own inimitable sound.

Dibiase – Collectin’ Dust EP

It’s just a collection of old gems made on the mpc 2000 which were lost for over 10 years or so collectin’ dust in my grandmas patio or some of my old friends archived some of these.

Electro Deluxe – Live In Paris

null

Electro Deluxe A wolf in sheeps clothing. Six of the most sought-after musicians on the french musical scene. Since 2001, we have evolved from our early electro-jazz sound to a energetic cocktail of dirty soul & funk with a touch of class. After ten years of criss-crossing the globe (China, India, Canada, Mexico, Europe) and performing at some of the most prestigious festivals (Montréal Jazz Festival, Jazz à Vienne, Cervantino, Solidays), we celebrate our tenth anniversary with the release of the double album “Live in Paris” recorded with the full artillery of our Big Band.

A reservoir of musical talent, and inspired by the mythical “Funk Brothers” of Motown lore, we work as studio musicians for among others, Universal & Motown recording artists, Ben Oncle Soul and Hocus Pocus, who have equally participated on our records. At the heart of the groove scene and with the ability to cross-over into other genres, we have enjoyed modest success in our home country of France with each of our last 2 albums topping the jazz charts in France while performing entirely in English. More Deluxe than Electro, and not bound to any one musical reference, we continue to push the boundries of our music.

Ravi Coltrane – Spirit Fiction

null

Praised for his music s elusive beauty (DownBeat), and for his style informed by tradition but not encumberedby it (Philadelphia City Paper), saxophonist and composer Ravi Coltrane takes a bold step in his creative journey with Spirit Fiction, his Blue Note Records debut . The 11-track album features two different band lineups, each with a unique expressive urgency. Several tracks feature Coltrane s long-term quartet with pianist Luis Perdomo, bassist Drew Gress and drummer E.J. Strickland. Coltrane also enlisted a quintet featuring trumpeter Ralph Alessi, pianist Geri Allen, bassist James Genus and drummer Eric Harland the personnel featured on his sophomore release From the Round Box. According to Coltrane, The title, Spirit Fiction is an abstract turn of phrase that came out of a stream of consciousness. The phrase seemed to mesh with the layered, superimposed nature of the title track. It also felt like a gentle indicator of the science involved in recording that track. In some ways, it ultimately refers to the open ended idea of simply embracing imagination. Coltrane s label mate and fellow saxophonist Joe Lovano served as co-producer of the album along with Coltrane. Lovano also plays alongside Coltrane and Allen on Paul Motian s Fantasm and joins the quintet for an explosive version of Ornette Coleman s Check Out Time. Spirit Fiction also includes six original compositions by Coltrane and three by Alessi.

Evil Needle – Homeworks EP

null

Evil Needle is a name that has been resonating greatly in the universe of beatmakers. Born in 84’ in the city of Berlin, Germany, he grew up fully influenced by 90’s hip hop with the sounds of Wu-Tang in particular were the soundtrack to his childhood. From then on, mainstream music was far from his radar, and he has been honing his skills for a good decade ever since his first introduction into the world of beat-making. ‘Cirrostratus’ (2011) was the beat tape that really caught our attention, as his attention to sounds and textures and a seemingly effortless ability to craft luscious tracks with minimal elements signalled to us that this talent is truly in his own class. Needless to say, we couldn’t say no when he was looking for a label to release his 2010 Homework beat tape and here we are – 8 tracks of pure Evil Needle to take you through the day.
