CRASH BOAT PARTY
12" Vinyl UK 28.06.18
after last year’s acclaimed bb boogie album “standing on the wall”, darren benjamin aka daz-i-kue returns with this incredible slice of latin jazz futurism. between 2012 and 2016 daz travelled to puerto rico to record with an array of talented musicians, laying down the framework percussion, bass and horns to be worked on when he returned to his studio in atlanta. “crash boat party” is his collaboration with ex fania all stars percussionist hector “tempo” alomar and features atlanta-based trumpeter dashill smith, (who’s worked with roy ayers, janell monet, and miguel atwood-fergurson to name but three), and accomplished bassist mamaniji azanyah. already licensed to feature in bobbito’s forthcoming documentary “rockrubber 45s”, this is timeless latin-jazz fire. the single is backed with “esto es candela con ritmo nene”, also from those sessions, taking things firmly into bruk-jazz territory.

THE POWER
12" Vinyl UK 12.12.17
originally released by the legendary uk house label black vinyl in 1999, “the power ep” quickly became karizma’s breakthrough anthem, showcasing his trademark balance of infectious beats and deeply soulful melodies.
this first time re-issue finally gives those that missed out the chance to experience karizma at his raw best. alongside the anthemic “the power”, (all 8 minutes 84 beautiful seconds of it), it’s the b-side that has the hidden jems.
“the sea” is a classic karizma house workout, flipping beats and groove and giving you that lift of spirit you get when you take in that fresh sea air on a sunny day.
“k ii s” is simply karizma going all out to make sure anyone in the vicinity is irresistibly drawn to the ambient melodies giving way to the body booming, neck-snapping beats. rough, rugged and raw.

GLOBAL SOUL SESSION EP PLUS
12" Vinyl D 30.11.12
japans rhythm of elements return with another e.p. that display their versatility and belief in the many forms that soulful music can take. >tribe #3< contains the classic rhythm of elements combination of dj uchikawas firing electronic beats alongside virtuoso piano playing by makoto kuriya, plus bass by incognitos francis hylton. the track is a tribute to the late departed detroit electronic music artist aaron carl who sadly passed away last year. continuing the detroit connection, rick wilhite has been working with the likes of theo parrish and moodymann for years, and his remix of >tribe #3< provides an audio beatdown, stripping the whole thing down to its rawest elements, and supplying the hard and the smooth in perfect balance. >blow< is another journey into a percussive horn driven groove for the dancefloor. rhythm of elements provide the remix, layering the musical elements like flavours in a delicious cake. finally, >meditation bath< (loftsoul 2012 mix) takes the pace right down for this beautifully relaxing slow burner. close your eyes and let it flow over you.
