  3. The Devil Made Me Do It (The Invisible Astral Wave version) (4:30)
Review: Like many drummers, Alex Puddu has long been inspired by the work of Tony Allen. He pays tribute to the legendary Nigerian sticks-man on "The Devil Made Me Do It", a sumptuous dose of groovy downtempo Afrobeat laden with Allen-style polyrhythms, Africa '70 horns and lashings of eyes-closed electric piano solos. On the flip you'll find two different interpretations from Puddu. The first, subtitled "The Invisible Cosmic", doffs a cap to the Afro-cosmic world of Daniele Baldelli while retaining much of the warmth and musicality of the original mix. "The Invisible Astral" version is an altogether more spaced-out dub, with Puddu smothering the drums and horns in copious amounts of tape echo.

  1. Tu Jamas (4:14)
  2. Solo Tu Amor (4:55)
Review: Although best known as the lead singer of well-regarded Japanese funk-soul band O.A.S.B, Amy Akaoka has long dreamed up recording a salsa album in the style of '60s and '70s pianist and bandleader Larry Harlow. This tasty two-track 7" single is her first release in the style - the album will appear later in the year - and is as summery, breezy and life affirming as you'd expect. She begins with "Tu Jamas", where male backing vocals, jaunty pianos and her own passionate lead vocal ride a sweat-soaked salsa rhythm. Turn to the B-side for the horn-heavy delight that is breezy salsa shuffler "Solo Tu Amor". Naturally, both are hugely authentic to the style of salsa championed by Harlow.

  4. The Drum Thunder Suite (6:43)
Review: Those who've studied Tony Allen's distinctive drumming style often cite Art Blakey as an influence, so it's little surprise to find him paying tribute to the legendary jazz drummer on this superb album. Joined by his regular band, Allen covers a quartet of tracks written and recorded by Blakey and his band, the Jazz Messengers. The results are predictably impressive, with Allen's loose and polyrhythmic percussion providing a rock solid foundation for the horns, piano and double bass that sits atop. It's naturally closer to all-out jazz than to Afrobeat, but still bristles with the kind of punchy horns and life-affirming playing that characterizes Allen's work. "Thunder Suite", in which Allen drops a number of sweaty drum solos, is particularly potent.

Review: Tribal, physical, psychedelic: Joe Claussell's Bolla project is one of his finest creative accomplishments for many fans, and his album Afrikan Basement: Makussa is the gift that keeps on giving. Having previously leaked limited 12"s, Joe's label Sacred Rhythm does it again with another super-limited, one-sided press. Hooky, insistent and far-out for the full 10 minutes, this is shaman material right here. Do not sleep.

  4. Uganda Futura 2 (2:30)
Review: Helpfully, there's little information about the mysterious artist - or artists - behind this first, four-track missive on the Decent International imprint. Musically, though, there's much to admire - not least the anonymous producer's penchant for combining Ugandan, Liberian and Ghanaian percussion with vintage drum machine hits and humid electronics. While there are some more purist offerings - see the looped indigenous samples, trademark guitars and fluid percussion of "Leaving You", and horn-heavy, vocal rich "When Koaa" - it's the more adventurous offerings that really hit the spot. Both "Uganda Futura 1" and "Uganda Futura 2" are delightfully out-there, pairing original African rhythms with the far-sighted electronics of Motor City techno - it's just a shame they both last no longer than 2 and a half minutes.

  4. Feet On The Ground (Vas Moody rework) (4:41)
Review: A couple of years back, Rafael Top Secret - a selector known for digging deep for inspiration - delivered a tidy re-edit of "Sekele I Like It", a previously little-known Afro-boogie cut by French artist Robert "Bobby" Helms. Copies of the 1980 album it came from, Lay Down, Girl, now go for serious money, prompting this licensed reissue. Helms' brilliant, horn-totin' original is accompanied by another cut from that album, "Feet On The Ground" - a straight-up disco affair - and two new flipside remixes. Baptman and Betino's "Philly Vibe" mix of "Sekele I Like" is a largely instrumental interpretation that includes some killer electric piano solos, with Vas Moody's "Feet On The Ground" remix taking that track in a tightly-wound dub disco direction.

On the flip, Huntleys & Palmers MMT proceeds to drop some Gipsy King house in the form of "Ton A Ton", backed by the more funky disco shades of "Pangae Flute". Nice and diverse for ya!

Review: First up on the freshly minted Olindo label is a tasty, two-track 7" single from Venezuelan outfit Monsalve Y Los Forajidos, which is fronted by bassist Raul Monsalve. A-side "Abeja" is a punchy chunk of musically expansive Latin funk, with jazz style horn and woodwind solos wrapping themselves around a killer groove and righteous chanting. It sounds like the kind of cut that will excite both funk DJs and jazz dancers. Flipside "Black & Decker" sees the band move further towards Azymuth style South American jazz-funk territory, with killer guitar and organ lines crowding around a shuffling Afro-Cuban rhythm track.

Review: Spanish saxophone player and producer Juan Muro first release the Teu Sapato EP way back in 1977. Amongst those who know, the unusual, four-track 7" single has become something of a sought-after item. Here it gets the deluxe reissue treatment via Madmua Records, a label specializing in showcasing overlooked gems from the Spanish musical underground. On the A-side you'll find the gentle bossa nova of "Teu Sapato" - all tango accordions, jazz guitar licks and shuffling rhythms - and the up-tempo, Rhodes-laden bliss of "Por Meu Amor". Flip for two tracks from Muro's Loeme alias: the sun-kissed, Azymuth-down-the-beach samba vibes of "Sou Do Samba Chuva Pau" and the tango-flecked shimmer of "Chuva Pau".

Review: Percussionist Takashi Nakazato is no newcomer to the Japanese nu-jazz scene, having been a regular contributor to Jazztronik records since the dawn of the millennium. Pista Libra Parts 1 & 2, though, is his debut solo 7". He kicks things off with Part 1, when ascending and descending Latin piano lines and snaking sax solos ride his own impeccable, salsa-tinged percussion. As the track progresses, Nakazato introduces some delightful jazz guitars, too. On the flip, "Part 2" is an altogether heavier beast, with Nakazato fully showcasing his range of percussion skills while sharp funk guitars and manic drum solos rage above. It sounds like the sort of sweaty jazz-dance workout that many would associate with British percussionist Snowboy.

Review: Conceived and raised "under the California sun", the Quitapenas collective are the ultimate solution to anyone looking for the perfect Afro-Latin vibes. More specifically, these guys are among the only bands to offer a true and singular take on Cuban, Brazilian, Angolan and Colombian music styles. We've been impressed by them ever since their opening LP back in 2015, but this new 7" for the Names You Can Trust imprint has something truly special about it. The opening "Ya Veran" is undoubtedly lovely in every sense of the word, laying down an upbeat Latin tune for the summer fiestas, but we're particularly fond of "La Best" on the flip side; it's a masterful blend of melancholic Afro melodies, sweet tribal percussions and an altogether irresistible sort of groove. We love this stuff.

"The Fool" brings the fever with big Motown dynamics and a rich gutsy vocal that will pull everyone closer to the dance. "Loopita" takes us further south to Cuba with a heel-kicking mambo that's laced with toxic levels of percussion. Start worrying if your hips aren't swaying by the end of this record. No fooling around here...

Review: While many avid Mulatu fans will no doubt already own a copy of the master's first - and perhaps most ingenious - work from 1972, one can certainly rely on the mighty Strut to put together a fine reissue. Of note, unlike the many versions which have been retrained by Worthy Records over the years, this new take includes many little extras that are special enough to tempt even the most munitioned Mulatu collectors; aside from seven tracks from Mulatu Of Ethiopia, an utterly inimitable psychedelic jazz journey that defined Ethiopia's entire sound in relation to the genre, this new version includes a whole selection of previously unheard cuts. There are mono album mixes of all the original tunes plus a wide selection of 'takes' from the original recording session, so this LP should have no problem in working up a bit of hype and hysteria from the original-pressing-junkies. This is an essential, highly recommended!

Review: According to those with more knowledge than us, Mulatu Astatke is one of Ethiopia's most influential musicians. He left the country to study abroad in the early 1960s, eventually settling in New York. It was there where he recorded the legendary Mulatu of Ethiopia, a set that helped define what the musician called "Ethio-jazz". Here Strut Records have given the 1972 set - original of copies of which change hands for phenomenal sums of money - the reissue treatment, delivering both stereo and mono mixes of the album's seven sparkling tracks. Although influenced by his Ethiopian upbringing and a deep love of Latin jazz, the album's major inspirations - think jazz-funk, psychedelia and Blaxploitation soundtracks - are all American.

Review: The funk dust from Bahama Soul Club's fourth studio album Havana 58 has barely had a moment to settle and along comes an equally timeless collection of versions. In keeping with the original spirit, the full soul range is explored but done so with a much firmer focus on the dancefloor; ZouZouElectric's dubby house glimmers on "Tropicana Flight", Opolopo's sweet shuffled jack on "Dizzy's Bounce" and Suonho's sultry piano-primed disco are just three of the nine awesome sunkissed twists crammed onto the 180 gram vinyl. Perfectly timed for the summer, too...

Review: Spain's Vampi Soul are killing it on the reissue front at the minute, along with a recent resurfacing of a very special album by Fruko, this repackaged edition of Canabrava by Combo Los Yogas - also originally out on Discos Fuentes - has put a big smile on our face in tying this week to a close. Also residing within the enlarged 'salsa' territory, Canabrava is a 1968 masterpiece, and the only LP from the outfit, who eventually would branch out into their own solo careers and other projects. But, we love albums like that. A singular gem that leaves music fans yearning for more of what they can't have. This is an album that's bound to put a smile on your face, like much of South American music, and it has the very rare quality of sounding truly timeless. The fact that it was made so long ago is only an added perk to please the diggers. Excellent.

Review: David Hanke is a man known for his wild and illustrious array of aliases. Through the years, he's appeared under the names Black Soyls, Madball Scientists, Mankoora and Rengades Of Jazz, among many others. Dem Juju Poets is his latest creation and, needless to say, it is perhaps his most accomplished and mature project to date. We don't want to take anything away from his previous productions but there's just something utterly fluid about this latest reincarnation. Matasuna is the new label to launch this new Liberated Thoughts LP, and we're sure this will go down a storm with all the jazz-funk crew, particularly the followers of Giles Peterson's DJ sound. Hanke's approach is playful and diverse, branching out into all sorts of jazzy vibrations that are tied together by funky, off-kilter outernational vibes. Plenty of breaks, bass bumps, and party moves for all sorts of vinyl playaz - oh boy, check those horns on the masterful "People's Republic"!

Review: East Village hustlers Forro In The Dark have a reputation for being one of the most interesting fusion acts of recent times. Over a string of critically acclaimed albums, the core trio of Guilherme Monteiro, Mauro Refosco and Jorge Continento has developed a signature sound that effortlessly joins the dots between Forro (a danceflor-driven style from North Eastern Brazil), rock, psychedelia, reggae, jazz, folk and much, much more. It's the kind of thing that shouldn't work, but as Sandcastle, their first album for two years, conclusively proves, it's a recipe for sunny, summery success. Trying to accurately describe the myriad of directions that album takes is devilishly difficult; suffice to say, it's a superb and life-affirming set.

Review: Julio Ernesto Estrada, simply known as Fruko, is a Colombian composer, multi-instrumentalist, and orchestra leader who pretty much gave salsa its name from the early 1970s. You go ask any serious DJ who is into South American music, and the name Fruko will no doubt get dropped on a regular basis. In fact, up until now, this man's records have made themselves scarce on the second-hand market, and there is a very particular sort of crowd whose willing to spend big money on them. A La Memoria Del Muerto is his second LP, from 1972, and what is perhaps the man's most definitive work. It's just one of those albums that runs fluidly from start to finish, showcasing all of its native beauty with effortless skill and furore. Rampant trumpets, seductive piano keys, kinetic percussion, and a sense of tropicality make this into a spectacular piece of work.
