Black Zone Ensemble – Chasing the Light

“Some call it Lounge, Balearic House and/or Nu Bossa, but what Black Zone Ensemble are really all about it…a laid back vintage party sound for adults.” This is the first sentence you read when you visit Black Zone Ensemble‘s Bandcamp page to purchase Chasing the Light. My introduction to Italian writer and musician Daniele Miglietta’s sound was the Bossa/House hybrid, Na Hora Certa (Listen) so I wasn’t sure quite what to expect upon hearing the other 12 tracks on the album. No need for concern however, because although largely unlike my entrance point into the collective’s music, the tracks still bang from start to finish! If I had to make comparisons, I would place it as a cross between Incognito, Koop and Bebel Gilberto, however we only get vocals on the aforementioned Na Hora Certa. Perfect for relaxing with a Mojito or entertaining with a pitcher of Sangria!

Small Professor – Mixed Jawns IV

Inspired by Dilla’s alleged practice technique of flipping other producer’s samples for practice, Philly’s Small Pro goes a step further and attempts to replicate the beatmaking styles of his peers by year. Listen to this “name your price” project as FlyLo, Diamond D, Pete Rock and many others styles get touched. How well do you think his mimicry game is? Let us know

Saoul – Nexus EP

Saoul’s latest EP, Nexus is light on tracks but dense in style and flavor! We’ve become familiar with the Romanian born musician and his forays into funk have made fans of many. Slide aside as he invites many more to the fold as he shows off even more of his growing repertoire. He unveils his wares slowly with lead track Jive, summoning his inner Van Hunt before jumping into Prince mode, wielding Minneapolis funk on Cassette Tape. Interestingly enough, track 3, Nubiqua reveals the Producer/Arranger/Composer’s burgeoning Jazz chops. Assisted by Tom Delaney on flute and sax, Saoul’s bass stays right in the pocket while he presents an 80’s fusion Jazz gem that Najee wishes he made! Sentiments lets you know sexy time is nearing with a slow groover cooked to perfection before ending the EP with the Prince meets Devante Swing feel of Good Girl. A must have for the ride

Inkswel – Outerspace Connection ft Steve Spacek & Harvey Sutherland

Inkswel has been tearing it up with his BBE Super Foods series, but he’s really turning it up with his upcoming release on OYE, Unity 4 Utopia! Featuring appearances by Mark de Clive Lowe, Recloose, Isaac Aesilli PLUS my favorite Steve Spacek, I cant wait for this double vinyl album to drop at the end of next month! Based on the theory that collaborations are a key ingredient in creating the best music, he puts it to the test on the upcoming long player. Outerspace Connection, out first peek into the project,  is a wonderful blend of boogie and soul, given life by Spacek’s fantastic vocals. I cant wait to hear more magic! Stay tunedand check our Spacek mix in the meantie HERE
