Hiatus Kaiyote – Get Sun feat. Arthur Verocai (2021)

The four piece band from Melbourne, Australia deliver a brilliant new slice of contemporary soul / jazz with a great ‘sci-fi’ video. So good.

Wayne Shorter – El Gaucho (1966)

Taken from the album Adam’s Apple, this is one of my favourite Blue Note releases. Only the best make it swing and feel this relaxed as they exchange solos and step in and out of key. I’ll stay with tradition and name check the band for this one.

Wayne Shorter – Tenor Sax

Herbie Hancock – Piano

Reginald Workman – Bass

Joe Chambers – Drums

Roisin Murphy – Incapable (2019)

From her early work in the 90s as one half of Sheffield-based electronic music duo Moloko, Róisín Murphy has always set the bar high. This track produced by Richard Baratt is yet another outstanding dance track. Luxurious, like a bath of hypnotic soul.

Joe Armon-Jones – Pray (2021)

London based jazz keyboard player Joe Armon-Jones delivers one of the best future funk tracks I’ve heard in a long time……featuring Morgan Simpson on drums and Luke Wynter on bass.

Tower of Power – Don’t Change Horses (1974)

Simply one of the best bands of all time, Oakland’s TOP delivered consistently outstanding musical arrangement and brilliant live performance. This track is taken from the album ‘Back to Oakland’ with the great Lenny Williams on vocals.

Anderson .Paak – King James (2019)

Grammy award winning Californian singer / rapper / writer / producer Anderson .Paak has been putting out his own brand of soul music for the last decade. This track really captures some of his distinctive style, energy and heavy groove.

Kaidi Tatham – Carry It Mongo Man (2021)

Keyboard player / composer / producer / DJ – Kaidi Tatham is another of London’s broken beat originators. Here he combines electronic, jazz and afro- brazilian elements to deliver a brilliant contemporary dance fusion track.

Taken from the album ‘An Insight To All Minds’.

Ghost x MdCL – Cosmic Ride (2021)

Mark de Clive-Lowe is a Japanese-New Zealand DJ / producer / composer now based in LA. One of the pioneers of the West London Broken Beats scene, this track showcases the best of this style – cosmic funk.

Yussef Dayes – For My Ladies (2019)

This London based trio cooked up a serious laid back groove on this track. Unmissable.

Charlie Stacey – keys
Rocco Palladino – bass
Yussef Dayes – drums

Suff Daddy – Probably Broccoli feat. S. Fidelity (2020)

Berlin-based producer and DJ Suff Daddy with a slice of hip hop / soul that’s as smooth as butter and laid back as it gets. Brilliant.
