Review: There have been plenty of retrospectives on the absolutely essential work of Sun Ra and his Arkestra over the years, but trust Strut to go that bit deeper when they elected to focus on the Sun God himself. As the extensive title suggests, this collection places the focus on proceedings in the hands of Marshall Allen, the longest serving member of the Arkestra and current band leader. The results mean In The Orbit Of Ra feels a whole lot more personal and indepth, with over 25 years worth of Sun Ra-lead music documented. It's all been fully remastered from the original tapes and is pretty much the most conclusive introduction to the work of this pioneer one could hope for. In addition to the 13 track double vinyl set, this release also includes the double CD edition which includes a further 7 Ra gems!

Review: Arthur Russell's legacy has remained strong long after his untimely death in 1992, most notably in recent times with the highly respected music critic Tim Lawrence unveiling his must read biography last year; this follows a documentary Wild Combination and a collection of cover versions released by Electric Minds. It is perhaps this latest musical project presented by the good people at Strut Records that will be of most interest to fans of Russell's work. Arthur's Landing is a collective of musicians who worked with the producer and cellist throughout his varied musical career. Led by guitarist Steve Hall, the ever morphing group of musicians have made a commitment to sustaining Russell's musical legacy and have spent the last few years touring and performing new arrangements of tracks from the Russell canon and they present twelve of them here on this enlightening album which has been produced by contemporary NYC icon Brennan Green. The album lovingly presents unique takes on both well known and unheard Russell tracks - witness the shimmering beauty of their take on "Is It All Over My Face" for just one example. Strut surround themselves with so many great music projects you'd have to wonder what a gaping hole would be left if they weren't around.

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: With the capabilities of modern discology allowing for the current deluge of disco 'edits', most of which do little beyond extending an intro for ease of mixing, it would have been an intriguing prospect to see what disco edit progenitor Walter Gibbons thought. Sadly we'll never find out, but current edit profiteers could do worse than check out this retrospective of Walter Gibbons remixes compiled by Strut. Nominally split between the 70s and 80s, the first section documents the imaginative reworks of the Salsoul catalogue that helped cement Gibbon's reputation whilst the second focuses on the mid eighties period where he worked closely with Arthur Russell. It was a chance encounter at the Salsoul office which afforded the then 22-year-old Gibbons an opportunity to remix Double Exposure's "Ten Percent", which became the first commercially successful 12inch release. That mix is one of seven tracks which aptly demonstrate the percussion heavy style Gibbon's branded Jungle Music, with the closing 11 minute mix of Betty LaVette perhaps the most impressive example. The second section provides more sonic intrigue, starting off with a previously unreleased remix of Arthur Russell's "See Through", which is followed by Gibbons seminal take on Dinosaur L's "Go Bang" and perhaps the masterpiece of his career - a nine minute remix of Strafe's "Set It Off". Strut have delivered yet another superlative retrospective here. Released on a double LP with a limited bonus mix CD, this is not to be missed!

Review: Those turned on by Spiritual Jazz should already be aware of West Coast combo Idris Ackamoor & The Pyramids. They've been playing and recording together since the 1970s, though We Be All Africans is only their sixth full-length outing. Predictably, it's a fine set, effortlessly fusing their spiritual roots with elements of jazz-funk, soul and, of course, Afro-jazz. Highlights are plentiful, from the swinging, Tony Allen style rhythms, swirling vocals and punchy horns of "Rhapsody In Berlin", and the clarinet-sporting sweetness of the brilliantly percussive "Epiphany", to the stretched-out drum workout "Traponga", which sounds like the work of three drummers and a whole troupe of percussionists.

Review: Strut and Trevor Jackson do the right thing and collude on a second edition of Metal Dance, with a veritable feast of 80's industrial and primitive electronics to sink into. Some 27 tracks deep, Metal Dance 2 widens the remit of the first compilation by a year, collating material from the period 1979 to 1988 and features artists and bands that should be familiar to your eyes in Skinny Puppy, Chris & Cosey, Crash Course In Science and Liaisons Dangereuses along with many lesser known acts. Jackson himself contributes an edit of iconic Blitz DJ Rusty Egan whilst Morphine Records boss Rabih Beaini highlights Lebanon's history with primitive electronics on an edit of Rene Bandaly Family's eighties curio "Tanki Tanki". Impressively, the compilation also features a track by CHBB, a band whose members went on to form DAF and Liaisons Dangereuses and whose small discography was limited to four rare cassettes.

Review: Last year Strut released the superb debut EP from Kondi Band, a collaboration between blind, Sierra Leone-based thumb piano player Sorie Kondi and American DJ/producer Chief Boima. 12 months on, the duo is ready to release their debut album. It's a wonderfully evocative set that pits Sorie's traditionalist vocals and thumb piano work - informed by years spent busking on the streets of Freetown, Sierra Leone - with Boima's globally informed electronic rhythms and sounds. While the latter's beats and basslines that provide the platform, it's Sorie who emerges as the star, both as vocalist and chief melody-maker. The results are evocative, atmospheric and rarely less than hugely impressive.

Review: Generous applause has rightly headed the way of Strut and Richard Sen for the recently released compilation This Ain't Chicago, which brilliantly documents the nascent acid house sounds that appeared on UK shores in reaction to the spread of the Chicago house sound. A further addendum of applause should be afforded to this 12" accoutrement, which instead of merely picking three tracks from the compilation goes that little bit further. A previously unreleased edit of Bang The Party from Mr Tom Moulton lines the A Side (Tom being the man that invented the remix) whilst the flip has the divatastic "Love Me Baby" from May and a new Richard Sen edit of K.C.C.'s "Future III."

Review: Solidarity marks a welcome return to the studio from Canadian six-piece The Souljazz Orchestra following an extended break for touring. As with previous outings, the 10 tracks bristle with summery intent, mixing heavy bottom end pressure with piercing horns and authentically fuzzy vocals. The production makes it sound authentically 1970s, as if it was recorded in some cheap West African studio. Given the band's love of Afro-funk and Afro-beat - as well as the sort of psychedelic afro-jazz that so enthuses record collectors - it's a wise move. If anything, it makes the album even more desirable; certainly, there's an authenticity to The Souljazz Orchestra that can't be denied.

Review: Afro/Latin/tropical fusionists The Souljazz Orchestra have long established themselves as one of the most incendiary live acts on the circuits, reinforcing this rising reputation with a string of fine albums. Here, they deliver their seventh full-length, adding notable French Caribbean and Francophone West African into their already distinctive musical melting pot. Predictably, the results are impressive, with the Ottawa-based sextet effortlessly flitting between humid, Afro-Cuban workouts ("Ware Wa"), Hammond-heavy dancefloor freak-outs ("Bull's Eye"), slick soul sing-alongs ("As The World Turns"), and highly politicized Afrobeat jams ("Greet The Dawn", "Shock & Awe"). As usual, it's all impeccably played and produced, resulting in another killer dose of cross-cultural dancefloor fusion.

Review: For hardcore fans of lesser-known African music, Sunburst has always been a under-appreciated outfit. Formed in Tanzania in 1970, the band released a handful of 7" singles and a lone album, Ave Africa, developing a sound that blended Afro-rock, Zamrock, and the Caribbean-influenced fusion style, Kitoto. This Afro-Western-Caribbean fusion is explored extensively on this first career retrospective. While the set also includes tracks from a previously unissued radio session, it mostly mines their officially released output. Spiritual, inventive, intoxicating and entertaining, the music showcased on Ave Africa seems to inhabit a sound space all of its' own, but is rarely less than superb.

Review: Another superb and intricately detailed document from Strut's dedicated archivists, Sunburst's short but hugely prolific activity between '73 and '76 is captured here in all its melting pot glory. Not just their one and only album but all 45s and unreleased recordings too. With six members from across the continent, the fusion, ideas and energy is palpable... Especially on full-screen tracks such as "Kamungulwe" where blues, rock and Tanzanian folk bubble and pop to a climax and "Alhamdullilah" stomps with a sweaty theatrical rock while "Ave Africa" finds the perfect merging point between Afrobeat and jazz. The band's live pedigree is also full screen with that rawness to the recordings that feels like they're in the same room. Addictively rich.

Review: Last year, Strut released a surprise new album from Ghanaian highlife legend Pat Thomas. Here, they look to the legendary vocalist and musician's vast back catalogue, showcasing music he produced or featured on between 1964 - when he was a member of the Broadway Dance Band - and 1981. It's pretty much a whirlwind trip through Ghanaian dance music history, with Thomas as the central attraction. As well as killer solo material - see the glistening guitars, bold bass and fluid drums of the juju-influenced "Awurade Mpaebo", the Moog-laden Afrobeat strut of "Yamona", and the slow burning soul of "Can't You See" - and tracks laid down with his various backing bands, the collection also features two previously unreleased collaborations with guitarist Ebo Taylor.

Review: Few Ghanaian musicians are quite as celebrated as Pat Thomas, who recorded and released his first album way back in 1974. Understandably, his releases have become less frequent with the passing of time, and Pat Thomas & The Kwashibu Area Band is his first studio album since 1991. The supporting cast list is, unsurprisingly, impressive, and includes Fela Kuti collaborator Tony Allen, and legendary highlife guitarist Ebo Taylor. Musically, there are few surprises, just a killer collection of bright, breezy, sweet and addictive highlife and Afrobeat jams, all blessed with Thomas' wonderful voice, Taylor's glistening guitars, and some seriously punchy horns. It's a real treat for fans of African music.

Review: The tireless Strut Records operation presents this excellent retrospective of Celluloid Records! This 80s NYC imprint is described by Strut as the "label whose output so closely mirrors the full spectrum of what we love" so the 26 track Change The Beat: The Celluloid Records Story 1980 - 1987 can be viewed as something of a personal coup. Typically for a Strut release, Change The Beat manages to superbly represent a label whose output includes a rather intimidating 100 plus albums that veered between no wave, nascent hip-hop, afro infused experimental disco and more, and neatly encapsulates New York's vivid music scene in this period. Bill Laswell was central to the Celluloid story and features prominently here in his Massacre and Material incarnations as well as other key productions. Celluloid's involvement with early forms of New York hip-hop is also a key narrative of this compilation yet there's room for so much more in the tracklisting. Rare photos from the Celluloid archives and extensive interviews with label boss Jean Karakos, Bill Laswell, Afrika Bambaataa, Time Zone's Rusty Egan, John Lydon make this a definitive retrospective!

Review: Originally released back in 2001, there's a reason why Strut have reissued Nigeria 70: The Definitive Story Of 1970's Funky Lagos so many times; it's superb and totally lives up to the title! if you've not yet indulged in the compilation, this 2012 triple vinyl pressing is the even more definitive edition, slipping in the 2CD version along with the Nigeria 70 audio documentary that Strut originally included in the 2001 CD issue but has been absent since. With the vinyl now pressed on heavyweight 180g wax, this makes for the perfect introduction into the vivid story of 1970s West African funk. Well done Strut!

Review: The Strut label have done it again, people. Known for digging up some of the most obscure and interesting material from around the globe - both musically and culturally - the label sits alongside the likes of London's Honest Jon's Records in its ability to pull out unheard material from thin air. This time, we have a compilation of Mauritius' Sega music, a local kind of blues music that has its roots in traditional African music started by slaves of plantations who were looking for greener pastures. The 60's saw the explosion of the genre, and throughout this collection of tunes, you'll hear influences from just about any genre across the soul spectrum. There's psych, Afro beat, Ethiopian funk, and Fela-style chanting. It's a truly remarkable release, and it comes warmly recommended. This could well be up there in the top ten for 2016's world charts... and it's only February!

Review: For those interested in the development of black South African music during the height of the oppressive apartheid regime, Strut's excellent Next Stop Soweto series has always been essential listening. This fourth instalment is, unsurprisingly, another cracker, and is once again packed with high-grade material that perfectly showcases some of the best hybrids of Western rock, soul funk and disco with indigenous South African styles. Highlights are plentiful, and include the riotous dancefloor madness of The Movers' "Soweto Disco", the synthesizer-heavy wooziness of TY Boys, Xoliso's chunky stoner funk-rock, and the anthem-like, slap bass-propelled brilliance of Harari's "Give". ** Includes CD copy of the comp too **
