  5. Dragonfly (5:05)
  6. Miles Away (8:30)
Review: Having previously impressed with a trio of singles - particularly 2013 debut "Lavender" - hopes are naturally high for this first full-length from the James O'Keefe and Dave Koor-helmed Expansions project. Predictably, they deliver in spades, serving up a set whose fluid spontaneity and meandering solos owe much to the fact that the album was recorded in just three days. There's plenty of spacey jazz-funk and fusion fun to be found throughout, from the intergalactic synth solos of "Pocket 5" and dancefloor-burning heat of "Ivory Mountain", to the daydreaming Fender Rhodes motifs and fizzing drums of killer closer "Miles Away". Happily, fine recent single "Breakthrough" also makes an appearance.

Modifications: Set 3
Cat: ALBF 1205. Rel: 14 Nov 18
Broken Beat/Nu Jazz
  1. Blame's On You Bruv (6:03)
  2. Glass Army (8:08)
  3. Modification 25 (The Modified Man Rap) (3:24)
  4. Hear Me Calling (4:38)
  5. Sergio Arpeggio (8:07)
  6. Love Rising From The Dark Abyss Of Sorrow (4:49)
Review: Since launching the Modified Man project in 2016, Adam Scrimshire and Dave Koor have yet to put a foot wrong. The genius of their collaborative releases is their ability to combine loose-limbed instrumental improvisations with dusty samples, cleverly manipulated beats and an acute sense of atmosphere. This third volume in the series rolls along in a similar way, flitting between skewed, straight-to-tape boogie-house ("Blame's On You Bruv"), solo-laden deep house dreaminess ("Glass Army"), intergalactic jazz-funk/broken beat fusion ("Here Me Calling"), smooth and loved-up grooves (the amusingly titled "Sergio Arpeggio") and becalmed, ultra-deep downtempo beats ("Love Rising From The Dark Abyss of Sorrow").

  1. Next To Nothing (feat Ego Emma-Jean Thackray) (2:47)
  2. Sonnet 17 (feat Ego Ella May) (3:26)
  3. Still Here (4:42)
  4. Somebody Else (feat Andrew Ashong) (3:45)
  5. Tapeloop (1:38)
  6. Stack (feat Pie Eye Collective) (2:27)
  7. Before The Sun (feat Ego Ella May) (1:47)
  8. Step (6:53)
  9. Joyfulness (feat Alexa Harley) (3:34)
  10. Circle (3:22)
  11. 2 Minute Switch (feat Pie Eye Collective) (3:05)
  12. Wall Street (feat Andrew Ashong) (3:19)
  13. Communication Control (3:06)
Review: London beat-maker Hector Plimmer has a wide palette of influences - think off-kilter hip-hop grooves of Flying Lotus, contemporary jazz, British bass music, the soul-fired deep house of Theo Parrish and the jazz-funk influenced skip of broken beat - yet the music he makes is never cluttered, confused or needlessly eclectic. In fact, as this second album proves, he has a clear vision. Deep, soulful, warm and attractive, the set's 13 tracks are universally superb and come laden with vocals from a high-grade cast-list of guests including Andrew Ashong, Emma-Jean Thackray, Ella May and the Pie Eye Collective. It's one of those albums that will almost certainly be slept on, so do yourself a favour and don't let it pass you by.

Sonkei (LP)
Cat: ALBFLP 05. Rel: 25 Sep 19
Broken Beat/Nu Jazz
  1. Lullabies Of The Lost (1:29)
  2. Onkochishin (6:45)
  3. Elegy Of Entrapment (6:27)
  4. The Art Of Altercation (5:53)
  5. Cosmic Collisions (7:41)
  6. Circle Of Transmigration (4:28)
  7. Fallen Angel (8:40)
  8. Tempestuous Temperaments (4:59)
Review: Headed up by jazz-man and broken beat hero Mark de Clive-Lowe, Tokyo's Ronin Arkestra is an all-star collective that includes members of some of Japan's leading jazz and electronic music outfits. We shouldn't really be surprised, then, that debut album "Sonkei" is rather special. It features some suitably grandiose and epic contemporary jazz workouts - see "Onkochishin", the wonderfully spiritual and dancefloor-friendly "The Art of Altercation" and loose-limbed closing cut "Tempestuous Temperaments" - but the influence of other forms of music (most notably dub, ambient and electronica) is evident throughout, often in subtle and surprising ways. In other words, it sounds like a future jazz classic in the making.

First Meeting
Cat: ALBF 1206. Rel: 20 Mar 19
Broken Beat/Nu Jazz
  1. Stranger Searching (12:43)
  2. Redeye Reprisal (4:46)
  3. The Silk Road Prelude (11:51)
  4. A Love Supreme (7:42)
Review: Founded in 2017, Ronin Arkestra is a fusionist jazz/electronica collective from Tokyo founded by broken beat keys-man Mark de Clive-Lowe. Given that the band includes some of the finest players in Japan's contemporary jazz scene - most notably members of Kyoto Jazz Massive, WONK and Sleepwalker - you'd expect this first outing on Albert's Favourites to be rather good. It is, of course, with the band sashaying between dubbed-out soundscape jazz ("Stranger Searching"), sun-bright jazz-funk influenced positivity ("Redeye Reprisal"), loose-limbed, semi-improvised intensity ("The Silk Road Prelude") and, most notably, an awe-inspiring 21st century re-imagining of John Coltrane classic "A Love Supreme".

  9. Thru You (feat Georgia Anne Muldrow) (5:44)
Review: Although he never stopped delivering breezy and evocative blends of hip-hop, soul and jazz, Adam Scrimshire hasn't offered up an album in almost six years. That's one of the reasons that we were so excited about "Listeners", his new full-length excursion. Happily, we can confirm that the Wah Wah 45s affiliate has hit the spot with his more jazz-focused set yet. While it's not "pure" jazz in the traditional sense - there are odd electronic noises, differing rhythms, soulful vocals and trips into ambient, broken beat and hip-hop soul territory - it features a wealth of talented jazz players, some inspired vocalists and the kind of soft-touch production that rewards repeat listens. In other words, it's his musically intricate set to date.
