Kraksa (12" + insert)

Broken Beat/Nu Jazz/Nu Soul
  1. Kraksa (13:11)
  2. Svantetic (10:45)
Review: Those who pay attention to these things know that Poland's EABS (short for Electro Acoustic Beat Sessions) are one of the hottest jazz combos in the world right now - an accolade earned not only via their incredible playing, but also their willingness to fuse elements of classic Polish and American jazz with hip-hop, soul and funk influences. Here, the fast-rising septet joins forces with 22a regular Tenderlonious (who provides flute and soprano sax solos) for two epic workouts. A-side "Kraksa" is something of an epic; an ever-changing 13-minute jazz journey that brilliantly switches from floor-rocking goodness to horizontal bliss midway through. "Svantetic", meanwhile, wraps fuzzy rock guitars and hammered-out piano riffs around a sweaty groove that just grows in intensity throughout.

Review: Sample-loving downtempo fusionist Mo Kolours has yet to make a duff record, so hopes are naturally high for this dinked 7" single on 22a. Predictably, he's in fine form throughout, sauntering between seriously dubbed-out, tropical-tinged hip-hop beats (the ultra-baked heaviness of "Cerasee Doctor"), heavyweight Mauritian drum jams ("Margoze") and hard-to-define Indian Ocean funk (the fretless bass, weird noises and handclaps of quick-fix "Goya". He leaves the best till last, with the skewed hip-hop funk of "Menroe" - all wonky synth-bass, crunchy beats, sampled chants, tropical hand percussion and dubbed-out electronic stabs - hitting home hardest; he's still not made a bad record.

Review: Following hot on the heels of label boss Tenderlonious's mini album, London's 22a introduces us to a new extended family member, Neue Grafik. Located in Paris, Neue Grafik represents a generation of artists at the forefront of electronic music. Routing his influences in a heavy 70s feel, his latest EP 'Soul Conspiracy' invites the listener to explore a fusion of live and programmed electronic music. Grafik makes good use of live instrumentation on this EP, featuring plenty of Fender Rhodes and lead synth, as well as a sprinkling of live drums and a strong guest vocal from the soulful likes of Wayne Snow. Tunes like 'Modern Man' and 'Thanos Interlude' adopt an inspired broken beat approach, reminiscent of early Bugz productions, whilst the title track 'Soul Conspiracy' has a distinct 22a quality, fusing classic house beats with a lo-fi boogie feel.

Review: Tenderlonious and Dennis Ayler first joined forces in the studio last year, with the first fruits of their combined labours (a fine cut called "Put it On") appearing on Ayler's first 7" single for 22a. They clearly enjoyed working together, because they've now laid down an entire album of collaborative efforts. Heavily rooted in jazz, broken beat and vintage Herbie Hancock material, the album's genius lies in its energetic fluidity, thrilling percussive looseness and the duo's refreshing "anything goes" approach. Listing all of the sounds and styles represented would take forever, but suffice to say it's one of the most vibrant, colourful and hard-to-pigeonhole sets we've heard for a while.

Awakening (LP)

  3. Brahman (10:05)
  4. Zeno (7:50)
Review: For the latest release on his 22a label, Tenderlonious has persuaded trumpeter Nick Walters to reassemble his Paradox Ensemble outfit for the first time since 2013. "Awakening" is the 13-piece collective's debut album and, like previous releases, attempts to strike a balance between tight ensemble playing and more freeform, solo-powered passages. This plan is arguably best executed on the warm, groovy and ambidextrous B-side opener "Brahman", where wild instrumental solos ride a swinging groove and rich synthesizer chords, but is also expertly explored on the Latin-tinged dancefloor jazz opener "34268". That said, the collection's slower numbers are also inspired, particularly the dreamy "Dear Old Thing".
