Review: Children of Zeus' sophomore LP Balance takes the blueprint of their debut and evolves it into a deeper and more refined sound. The British duo of Konny Kon and Tyler Daley hail from Manchester and incorporate soul music with hip hop, neo-soul, gospel and R&B with help from Grammy award winning producer Beat Butcha, with rising UK soul talents Akemi Fox and Georgie Sweet contributing guest vocals. The definitive sound of UK street soul in 2021.

Review: Earl Jeffers & Don Leisure spark up their Cardiff vibe machine with their debut long player. Recruiting friends Daf Davies on drums, Jonathan Williams on strings and cameos from Henry Wu; a keen eye on the soulful jazzy details is maintained throughout as swooning, sunny side keys, dusty samples and gorgeous vocals from the likes of Vanity Jay, Jessy Allen and Esther wrap themselves around their hybrid of chopped beats and Daf's lavish, highly swung drums. Highlights include the Soul II Soul style "Journey To Love", the twinkling slo-mo bruk of "GAEA", the slinky slap bass and Rhodes tickle of "Modaji Suite" and the spiritual climax of the finale "The Accession". Stunning.

Review: Don Leisure's last album in 2017 was a real cult classic for hip hop and beat lovers. First World Records have finally got the follow up ready, and the much anticipated Shaboo Strikes Back does not leave anyone disappointed. It stretches out over 25 tracks and each one is a balmy and heady mix of fuzzy synths, wooden drum hits and smart samples that take in everything from serene strings to old soul vocals. It's a widescreen listen with loose tambourines dangled over gypsy funk synths on 'Shaboo Strikes Back' while 'Sugar Cane Juice' is a more edgy hip-hop cut. Super stuff.

Review: Breaking from her incredible vocal work as frontwoman of the Melbourne jazz unit 30/70, Allysha Joy here presents her second solo LP, 'Torn: Tonic', a 10-track foray through the process of sound as healing. Following up the 2018 debut 'Acadie: Raw', the album is a weird and wonderful array of raw wonky production, filtered and moody neo-soul, and genre motifs from dancehall ('Remedy') to gospel ('Fatima'). A marked difference to her earlier work.

A Family Affair
Cat: FW 200. Rel: 22 Apr 21
Broken Beat/Nu Jazz/Nu Soul
  1. Allysha Joy - "Better" (Kaidi Tatham remix) (5:36)
  2. Quiet Dawn & Sarah Williams White - "One By One" (4:27)
  3. Takuya Kuroda - "Fade" (KEARL remix) (5:20)
  4. Teotima - "But I Can't" (K15 remix) (4:35)
Review: Earlier this month, First Word Records dropped an epic, digital-only compilation in which members of the label's large family of artists either collaborated with or remixed each other. This 12" boasts four of the collection's undoubted highlights. The EP begins with a simply stunning Kaidi Tatham remix of Allysha Joy's soul-jazz treat 'Better' - think deep broken beat meets liquid jazz-funk and sultry neo-soul - and ends with a fiercely sub-heavy and surprisingly spaced out K15 broken beat rework of Teotima's 'But I Can't'. Sandwiched in between you'll find a jazz-funk-goes-bruk re-wire of Takuya Kuroda's 'Fade' by KEARL (that's K15 and Darkhouse Family's Earl Jeffers) and a wonderful fusion of squelchy synth-jazz and broken beat courtesy of Quiet Dawn and Sarah Williams White.

  5. Manauvers (6:00)
  6. L'Opuleance (3:57)
Review: Some 11 years into their career, French outfit Souleance has developed from a duo o a four-piece thanks to the addition of a drummer and synthesiser-loving keyboardist. If Les Mouches, their latest release on long-time home First Word, is anything to go by, it's a move that has made their sound richer, fuller and far more organic. There's much to enjoy across the six-track set, from the mazy, life-affirming synth solos and low-slung, bass-heavy disco grooves of 'Les Mouches', to the live - and ultra-funky - beat science of 'The Bounce' and the hazy-but-exciting jazz business that is 'Mont Maudit'. We'd also recommend checking the quirky, P-funk influenced wonkiness of 'L'Opuleance' and the life-affirming, piano-laden rush of 'Aquarelle'.

Review: When this album was initially released way back in 2008, it was Kaidi Tatham's first under his given name (previously, he'd released solo records as Afronaught and appeared on all manner of collaborative releases). Since then, he has of course gone on to greater critical and commercial success, but as this timely reissue proves, "In Search of Home" still hits home hard. Like much of his work, it deftly showcases his Herbie Hancock-like jazz and jazz-funk keyboard skills within tracks that variously join the dots between broken beat, hip-hop, deep house, Latin fusion and sumptuous slow jams. Colourful, rich, jazzy and impeccably performed throughout, the album remains one of the high points of Tatham's career and is well worth adding to your collection.

  15. Enjoy Life (1:13)
Review: In our eyes, Kaidi Tatham can do no wrong. The long-serving keyboardist barely seems to sleep and releases a high volume of collaborations and solo records, but his quality threshold is so high that there's barely a duff track in his catalogue. Over the last few years he's developed a trademark sound that wraps Herbie Hancock style jazz-funk keys around crunchy broken beats, while also drawing influence from hip-hop, '80s electro, boogie, Latin jazz and slick deep house. An Insight Into All Minds, the veteran musician's fifth solo album, is naturally rooted in this trademark style, offering up a collection of cuts that bristle with positivity, pack plenty of punch, and are as well produced and life-affirming as you'd expect. It's a high bar, but it could well be his single best LP to date.

  14. Derive (3:40)
Review: Werkha's new album All Werk Is Play fide the artists doing what artists should on a full length project: create a series of songs that feed into one another, that are unified by an underlying message and are worth way more than a collection of singles you might find on an EP. This record completes a creative cycle for Manchester's Werkha with a range of uptempo and groovy compositions that mix analogue jazz funk vibes with modern club sounds that veer from breakbeat to broken beat. Horns, bars, harp, double-bass, guitar and plenty more colour the tracks and make this his best body of work yet.
