Spin (12")
Cat: 2047 BLACK. Rel: 23 May 19
Broken Beat/Nu Jazz/Nu Soul
  1. Spin (4:14)
  2. Don't Know Why (Chant For Love) (3:59)
  3. You Know The Feeling (3:27)
Review: Blacks & Blues is a new name to 2000 Black, but the people behind the project are label stalwarts: Dego, Kaidi Tatham, Matt Lord (AKA Lordamercy) and vocalist Obenewa Aboah. With such talent on show, it's unsurprising that opener "Spin" - a cracking slab of broken-beat/soul fusion rich in military style drums, jazz-funk keys and summery vocals - is rather good. While dancefloor-friendly, the track feels loose, languid and tailor-made for outdoor parties. "Don't Know Why (Chant For Love)" is an even more lo-fi broken soul excursion (very Fatima), while "You Know The Feeling" recalls the jazz-funk-fired soulful club cuts of early 2000s broken beat heroes Bugz In The Attic.

Too Much (gatefold 2xLP in spot-varnished sleeve)

Broken Beat/Nu Jazz/Nu Soul
  1. A Strong Move For Truth (feat Nadine Charles) (3:19)
  2. Good Morning (feat Samii) (2:40)
  3. Remini Dream (feat Ivana Santilli) (3:46)
  4. I Don't Wanna Know (feat Obenewa) (3:21)

  10. Just Leave It (feat Lady Alma) (4:52)
  11. Ogawa Okasan Said Just Play (4:45)
  12. A Where Pringle Deh? (2:14)
  13. My Standards Are (Not) Too High (8:40)
Review: In our eyes, 2000 Black lynchpin Dego can do no wrong. You'll therefore be unsurprised to hear that we're huge fans of the 4Hero founder member's latest solo album, a belated follow-up to 2015's "The More Things Stay The Same". It is, of course, superbly soulful, slicky produced and wonderfully paced, moving from the heady soul sweetness of "A Strong Move For Truth", to the deep jazz-funk/broken beat vibes of "My Standards Are (Not) Too High" via 12 other warm and seductive cuts of an equally high standard. Highlights include the summery bruk-soul bliss of "Remini Dream", the toasty boogie revivalism of "Unknown Faults" and the Clavinet-sporting brilliance of Lady Alma hook-up "Just Leave It".

Project X (LP)
Cat: BLACKLP 006. Rel: 23 Apr 20
Broken Beat/Nu Jazz/Nu Soul
  1. S-Kai (1:18)
  2. Grape Juice (6:42)
  3. Q To Start (3:09)
  4. The Lost Words (2:33)
  5. Psych (2:23)
  6. The Recovery (2:51)
  7. Brave Games (4:10)
  8. Song For Patrice (3:00)
Review: The 2000 Black crew is keeping tight-lipped about the details surrounding this release, describing the previously unknown Project X as, "a non-partisan group primarily operational in the late 20th century" whose "only confirmed action was creating and compiling previously unreleased music to highlight various events of the time". So far, so mysterious. Whatever the identity of those behind the project, the album is well worth a listen. Its shadowy creators flit between high-octane dancefloor jazz ("S-Kai", "Q To Start"), organic downtempo grooves (the sun-kissed "Grape Juice" and samba-soaked warmth of "The Lost Words"), synth-sporting takes on the heady Rotary Comnection sound ("Psych") and giddy jazz-funk ("The Recovery"). The real stand out though is "Brave Games", which sounds like a thrill-a-minute fusion of Batacuda, jazz-funk and dancefloor jazz.

6th (12")
Cat: 2048 BLACK. Rel: 30 Jan 20
Deep House
  1. Life After Subway (4:12)
  2. The Blessings Of Salvation (4:35)
  3. Return Of Pastor Shadrach (6:12)
  4. Blue Signs (3:05)
Review: Starting 2020 like they mean to go on, West London's 2000 Black crew serves up an essential four-tracker created during jam sessions between regular collaborators Kaidi Tatham, Akwasi Mensah, Matt Lord and Dennis "Dego" McFarlane (Ranks). As with their previous collaborative releases, its' four tracks variously join the dots between deep house, bruk, jazz-funk and mellower flavours. As usual, the beats are tight and weighty, the musicianship exceptional (Kaidi's keys-playing being a particular highlight), the chords deep and the lead lines memorable. While all four tracks are excellent, our picks are the rubbery bruk-up bliss of "Return of Pastor Shadrach" and the sun-kissed broken house warmth of "Life After Subway".

Simmering (12")
Cat: 2041 BLACK. Rel: 13 Jul 17
Broken Beat/Nu Jazz/Nu Soul
  1. Simmering (4:59)
  2. Private Life (3:31)
  3. Long Climb In The Sun (4:15)
Review: It would seem we're back on the Christmas card list... 2000 Black supergroup comprising the likes of Dego, Mensah and original Bugz members Lord and Tatham have been slowly ramping up their releases again and this year has seen their largest output yet. Following "Two Way Here One Way Go", "Simmering" proffers three more sublime and silky instrumentals from deeply decorated foursome. "Simmering" is a tight jazz funk jam with a sprung guitar groove spine and a blissful switch into soothing flutes midway, "Private Life" flips for a sunnyside digidub, all spacious and rippling with its breezy keys while "Climb The Sun" brings us back to the funk root note but with rising synth insistency that's bruk to the bone. Simmering now, boiling tomorrow...
