MORITZ VON OSWALD & ORDO SAKHNA (2X10 INCH)
10" Vinyl UK 03.11.17
a kind of intimate scrapbook of the startling collaboration between the techno maestro and this long-standing musical collective based in bishkek, devoted to the roots music of kyrgyzstan. loose-leaved but balanced, lucid and intimate, it sets out from stunning a cappella and virtuosic komuz and kylak, mouth harp and traditional percussion: not field, but expert studio recordings, using marvellous vintage microphones, made over several days in berlin. further, a few of these are deftly treated by moritz, using reichian de-synced double-tracking, and discreet effects. also two ten-minute dubs: a deadly, signature berlin steppers, plus its version and an echoing, mystical drum session, recorded live on stage in bishkek. and a side-long, dream-like summation: the locomotive, oceanic, clangorous, dread facets. ravishing, rooted, searching music, beautifully presented.

OBADIKAH (LP)
12" Vinyl lp UK 06.12.16
brand new, rambunctious, rootsy, spiritual brass-band music from lagos, with singing, drums and home-made percussion. obadikah is a group of old friends who play together in the cherubim & seraphim and baptist churches of the ikeja and isale eko districts. a couple of them were founder-members of the eko brass band, they’ve played with pretty much all the key nigerian reggae artists. the tunes are mostly traditional yoruban melodies, often sung at bed-time. the songs are mostly original, sung in yoruba (though jomido is an egun song from the badagry area of lagos state).

NO MORE WAR EP (10 INCH)

in the great tradition of count ossie, four new grounation furies - hypnotic, thunderous, urgent, mystical - with dubwise repeta, funde and bass drums embedding the light of saba veterans gorgeous trombone classicism.
the opener is a rocking kumina rhythm, with ring-the-alarm metal percussion and exhortatory brass, free the people swirls some apocalyptic reasoning into the foggy, thumping mix. universe in crisis is another emergency call, chuffing headlong down the grooves ... before the beautiful, anthemic chant takes a step back from the fire, closing with a sense of thankful, spiritual reconciliation, the expert drumming and lyrical bone-work in full effect.

two dazzling, out-there contributions from the inimitable actress: an immersive, slashing thumper, ecstatic and convulsive, multi-layered and head-nodding, just about getting mars on the radio, and a kind of unhinged marimba and thumb-piano variation, grubbing around manically in half-memories of african polyrhythm

12" Vinyl D 12.10.11
massive versions by detroits theo parrish and burnt friedman!
theo roars into a fierce, uglier-than-ugly edit, with no let-up for thirteen minutes, when it crashes to a standstill: a hurtling, mesmerizing ride, multi-layered and clustered with synth washes, bleeps and alarms, galloping drums, clattering percussion.burnts shangaan variation is perforce more chilled, lithe, reverberating. the drums are crafted and fatback, with moody vocal interjections and haunting keys, chocka with dub thrills and spills, lethally spiked with bass.

sublimely convulsive shangaan electro-gospel by a pastor from giyani, limpopo, recorded in 2008, brimming with aching, plaintive, mournful spirituality. however fractured, multi-faceted and fresh the music comes across ù that signature whistle and sampled marimba, a little wonky high-life, rough, skittering drum patterns, no bass ù the surging vocal lines and harmonies are unmistakably rooted in traditional south african music.

LAGOS NO SHAKING (2X12)
2x12" Vinyl UK 22.09.17
2017 reissue -- tony allen is the co-creator of afrobeat, and one of the most distinctive and in-demand drummers on the planet. no one swings like this nigerian rhythm man ? with that amazing, loose-limbed, poly-rhythmic technique that has powered some of the funkiest and most challenging dance music ever created. and lagos no shaking is his most powerful and personal album to date: a return to core values, a testament to the fact that afrobeat is best served straight ? hot, hard and percussion-heavy.
>lagos no shaking< is a spectacular homecoming for tony allen, an acerbic, unflinching love letter to the city that gave him life in rhythm.

CHILAZON 1
12" Vinyl UK 15.07.16
pure worries from leipzig — three club burners steeped in detroit traditions, distilling the explorations in collective, nervy hypnosis of km live sets. as the music slowly unfurls, there he is at every turn, subtly tweaking its parameters, redistributing its weight, pricking its grooves into a state of utterly infectious perpetual movement. the two visions of chilazon track opposite pathways: the first is twelve minutes of gorgeous, dubwise, aquatic techno, spattered with kicks and razor-sharp hi-hats, and smeared with ghostly echoes, then a terse mesh of broken drums, escalating to a quiet yet feverishly intense peak. lanthanum is calligraphic swordplay, its toms and bass stabs warily circling one another in a graceful steppers’ dance, spaced-out and fathoms-deep

IN SITU (2X12 INCH LP)
2x12" Vinyl UK 19.10.15
spherical collections of stars form around black holes in situ, that is, locally to their cosmic neighbourhoods. it is said that future space colonization will rely on sourcing supplies in situ. construction in situ uses raw materials at the site: colossal sculptures such as naqsh-e rustam, the leshan giant buddha and mount rushmore were built in this fashion. wild, organic machine grooves, with a mind’s eye on naked treetops and an early sunset. melody breathes out from dubwise fx, percussion by turns sinewy and floating, sub blasts and stripped synth arrangements. keys on air. spacious, witty, melancholic, deadly.

BLUE
12" Vinyl UK 30.07.13
meditative, absorbing dance music in true moritz style — at times seemingly transfixed by its own elements, and minimal almost to vanishing-point, but quickly back ticking, kicking and amassing, with the lethal dubwise density of the classic berlin sound. twelve minutes long, trenchant and forbidding but sharply alive, the dub itself is a kind of deep fort-da gambit which scoops your brain out for a quick sluice, before replacing it slightly skewiff. dont drop your guard because of the tresor.

the moritz von oswald trio operates at the bleeding edges where musical lineages collide. feeling for the shared heartbeat that pulses through dub, techno and jazz, it seeks out points of contact before exploding them outward into hypnotic explorations of rhythm, texture and tone. after two previous studio albums and one live album through honest jons, the trio - moritz von oswald, max loderbauer (nsi / sun electric) and sasu ripatti (vladislav delay / luomo) - returns with fetch, their most fully-realized voyage yet into these in-between worlds.

10" Vinyl UK 30.03.12
rocket juice & the moon is the new project from damon albarn, tony allen and flea (red hot chilli peppers). obviously with albarn as the sun-like central attraction, like his gorillaz outfit, there are always a plethora of guests will to help out. on this second 10we get three of the deepest, freshest instrumentals from the imminent album - featuring the hypnotic brass ensemble on the opener leave-taking. the hbe add their customary bold brass to tony allens funky afro rhythms, fleas super-fluid bass and malian cheick tidiane seck doing some cosmic synth work. with its repetitive chant and loose-limbed, percussive, funky grooves, 1-2-3-4-5-6has a touch of the punk-funk about it - until the killer jazz-funk fusion moog swings by! lastly we have the crazy forward sweep- more afro-funk, more sleazy synths! sound-wise, this is doubly lethal, as alive and present as vinyl gets: mixed by mark ernestus, mastered and cut at d&m, manufactured at pallas.

the two dubstep pioneers at the top of their game. the deadly concision, the rhythmic punch and dramatic timing, the spry, side-to-side detailing of a cavernous stage, the crisp-biscuit vocal sampling and middle eastern percussion — together, their sound signatures are not so much totalled as squared. truly an album, the music is multi-levelled — dark as anything at times, but engrossingly varied and emotionally shaded, always on the move.

GIVE ME LOVE - SONGS OF THE BROKENHEARTED (2X12)
2x12" Vinyl UK 18.03.11
in the mid-1920s the gramophone company — soon before it became emi — employed two or three europeans to criss-cross iraq. they logged regional demographics, assessed the german competition, and checked out the scores of record shops and hundreds of musical venues. this was the groundwork for three sessions, conducted in baghdad in the second half of the decade, which produced nearly one thousand recordings. >give me love< is second in honest jons series of albums exploring the 78s held in the emi archive at hayes.

darren cunninghams eagerly awaited new album is an adventurous, ultramodern, thoroughly british affair, rummaging about in the inner lives of house and techno, and brilliantly elaborating the accomplishments of his debut, hazyville. determinedly off the map and resistant to pigeonholing, cunningham is an enigmatic and playful figure, citing francis bacon and monet as inspirations alongside theo parrish, anthony shake shakir, daft punk, binary codes and numeral systems, and the avengers. hes a hard man to pin down ? somehow a key player in the post dubstep diaspora and yet not there at all ? but everything comes across in his shape shifting, richly textured music. the south londoners acclaimed debut lived up to its name: a series of dreamlike sketches and ideas. for splazsh the fog has lifted, the sounds are less submerged than before, but still sticky and close ? a signature combination of exuberance and introversion, luminescence and puzzlement. unconstrained by the formal cliches of the dance music he loves, actress melodies and arrangements are enthralled by their own genies

YAKIIMO
12" Vinyl UK 23.07.09
eagerly awaited, this is simone whites second album for honest jons, after the acclaimed release two years ago of i am the man. likewise produced by mark nevers in nashville, yakiimo has a more pared-down, western sound. the mood is bitter-sweet and nostalgic, but spiced with longing, fantasy and hopefulness, musing in a daze (sometimes child-like) on lost love, lost innocence, lost years. marked by high and lonesome fiddle and some lovely guitar-picking, the spare arrangements find in americana an equivalent of the world of saudade expressed in brazilian portuguese music.

CALYPSO FROM WEST AFRICA (2X12)
2x12" Vinyl UK 03.06.09
the inter-war dance bands of british west africa are often strikingly similar in sound to trinidadian orchestras like lovey s string band (credited with the first calypso recordings, in 1912). however, the first west african calypso recordings in the modern style are from freetown, sierra leone in the early 1950s, by ebenezer calendar and famous scrubbs. in arrangements blending african and european instruments, the brass plays out the legacy of colonial military bands, albeit hair-down and a little ramshackle now, and the beautiful creole lyrics are as upful, quick, current, musical and intimate as any classic calypsonian s.

MAKI ASAKAWA (CD)
cd UK 29.11.16
a good place to start. her basic sound and image were interior-life bohemian, and in some ways she was cagey with her talent. she didnt belt or improvise broadly. she picked a limited range of notes and climbed into them, applying a pinch of vibrato, letting her voice fade and crackle. these tracks clearly demonstrate her guiding desire, which was to explore the possibilities of the slow blues in the late 20th century, whatever that might mean. some of the most intense recordings she made were english-language covers or japanese rewrites of american jazz standards, blues songs and spirituals, backed by only acoustic guitar and drums. she sang slowly, as if there were weights on her. and after a while of her working and your listening, youll hear it: the way she connects intimately with her task but keeps something private for herself (new york times)

THE RETURN OF PIPECOCK JACKXON (CD)
cd UK 01.03.12
originally released in 1980, this album is the final work to emerge from the blackark studio, before its permanent destruction. it concludes a series of such lpmasterworks as super ape, war in a babylon, police and thieves, and the return of the super ape. enthrallingly, it crosses the soundworld of roast fishcollie weed and cornbread with new hybrids -- like the irresistible elevenminute opener, rolling and delirious, a kind of reggae prophesy of marvin gaye s sexual healing, but musically richer, and more glazed, randy and visionary.

HORIZONTAL STRUCTURES (CD)

the trio of moritz von oswald, max loderbauer (nsi / sun electric) and sasu ripatti (vladislav delay / luomo), with a third album, this time enriched and expanded by guitar contributions from paul st hilaire (also known as tikiman), and double bass courtesy of marc muellbauer (via ecm). horizontal structures is palpably a more open, more expressive album than the previous studio recording, vertical ascent. there is more contrast, more light and shade. st hilaire and muellbauer add fresh drama and swing to the intimate tonal and rhythmic interactions of the core grouping. the coherence of the five-piece is remarkable, the boundary between acoustic and electronic undone.
