RECOMMENDATIONS




HNNY - SUNDAY

Grammis-award winning downbeat/laidback house/collage LP, like a mix of The Avalanches and soft Brazilian music. Great stuff, especially the blissful "Sunday" and "Cheer up my brother"!



PETE ROCK & C.L. SMOOTH - THE MAIN INGREDIENT

Amazing hip hop album, one of the best from this period. Contains "I got a love", "Take you there" & "Searching". Long-awaited reissue.



LANIER - BLINDED (BY THE QUALITIES OF YOU) / 25 HOURS (EDIT)

The perfect doublesider? Monster midtempo modern soul b/w a 7" edit of the disco beast "25 hours". This reissue is the first 7" release for both tracks, and the original 12" is very tough to track down.



KHUN NARIN ELECTRIC PHIN BAND - II

The Thai village band that made such an impact in 2014 are back (this time with better art direction) and the same jaw-dropping sound.



BARIS MANCO - 2023

Back in stock, one of the essential Turkish rock records (along with Selda for example)!



VARIOUS - ALOHA GOT SOUL - SOUL, AOR & DISCO IN HAWAII 1979-1985

Hawaiian soul/soft rock/boogie with a great vibe through all 4 sides. Highlights include Tender Leaf's "Countryside beauty" and Mike Lundy's "Love one another".



EBO TAYLOR - CONFLICT

Superb Ghanaian afrobeat LP with great jazzy hornlines and funky drumming. Includes killer versions of "Victory", "What is life" & "Love and death". Quality reissue of very rare Essiebons original, remastered and sounding way better than the expensive and often badly beaten up original copies.



EBO TAYLOR - SAME

Amazing Ghanaian afrobeat album, heavily sought-after for tracks like "Ohye Atar gyan" & "Heaven". Remastered reissue.



EERO KOIVISTOINEN - ODYSSEUS

Amazing jazz LP. "Odysseus" is my favorite track but the whole album is extraordinary and one of the best jazz pieces from Europe as I see it. High quality reissue in gatefold cover.



EERO KOIVISTOINEN - FOR CHILDREN

State-of-the-art Finnish jazz, comes highly recommended.



HONNY & THE BEES BAND / GYEDU-BLAY AMBOLLEY & THE STENEBOOFS - PSYCHEDELIC WOMAN / SIMIGWADO

Double-headed brilliance, two sides of unstoppable African funk from the dark side!



JOHNNY HAMMOND - GEARS + BONUS TRACKS

Superb jazz/fusion/funk album. Check the club favorites "Shifting gears" and "Los conquistadores chocolates", but the whole LP is consistent. Another classic album that's getting tougher to find these days. This is a remastered reissue with 6 bonus tracks not on the original release.



BRUCE & VLADY - THE REALITY

Legendary Swedish LP made by a drums & organ duo consisting of American organist Bruce Powell & Polish drummer Vlady Jagiello. Sounds like a looser version of Hansson & Karlsson, with half-spoken/half-sung vocals slightly reminiscent of Gil Scott-Heron.



SANDRA DE SA - OLHOS COLORIDOS

Awesome Brazilian boogie!



SPJÄRNSVALLET - AGAIN & AGAIN

Deep, eastern/afro-tinged jazz partly recorded around the same time as their rare 1975 LP, along with 2014 material made in tribute to the late Kjell Westling. The perfect sound for those into Archimedes Badkar, Don Cherry's "Organic society" and similar music.



PETE ROCK & C.L. SMOOTH - MECCA & THE SOUL BROTHER

One of the best LPs in the history of hip hop. "Straighten it out", "They reminisce over you" etc. Official US reissue pressed on clear vinyl.



SUN RA & HIS ARKESTRA - GILLES PETERSON PRESENTS SUN RA AND HIS ARKESTRA TO THOSE OF EARTH... AND OTHER WORLDS

Gilles Peterson curated compilation of Sun Ra classics, rarities and unreleased tracks - great entry point to Sun Ra, or for inspiration to further adventures!



PIERO UMILIANI - LA RAGAZZA FUORISTRADA

Stunning Italian soundtrack and maybe Umiliani's best - a jazzy, slightly funky and loungy affair with a moody and laidback vibe.
