We’ve been listening to the new Positive Flow album for a while now and it’s one solid piece of quality music! “Flow Lines” is his debut album and features Omar, Sharlene Hector, Heidi Vogel (Cinematic Orchestra), Stacy Epps, Colonel Red and Vanessa Freeman to name a few. Wonderful fusion of soul, broken beat, jazz and house music. Next week is the official release date on Tokyo Dawn Records, so mosey on to the TDR shop to pre-order the CD or snack on some digital goodness.
After some tasty free give aways from UK’s finest, Tatham, Mensah, Lord and Ranks, it’s about that time for their “Tatham, Mensah, Lord & Ranks” album to drop. With a little help from music friends Eric Lau, Bembe Segue, Mark Force, Sarina Leah and Ferraz, TMLR spread some funky fly broken vibes guaranteed to bring a smile on any music lover’s face. Make sure to buy your copy on or wait for the CD to drop via Juno.

Little over half an hour ago Kaidi Tatham uploaded some crazy fly demo, “Molten”, to his Soundcloud. As he puts it he was ‘just messing around on his new computer’. Later this month “Mr Pickles” will hit the stores so keep you ears open for that new TMLR (Tatham, Mensah, Lord & Ranks) goodness! In case you missed the free give away, please click here..

Okay it’s time to come clean. Lately I’ve been pretty bored with new music. There comes a time in ones life where a man has to reinvent himself on a musical level. One of those albums I was not feeling at the time was Jamire Williams‘ “Conflict Of A Man”. Thanks to a long conversation I had today, I started to realize that my relationship with music was on the verge of destruction. You might say we hadn’t had sex in months and that might have made me a little frustrated. All I needed really was to give “Visions” from Erimaj another listen. We should be thankful for innovators like these and appreciate them whenever we can. A lesson well taught! For those in the neighborhood…come and enjoy their show at the North Sea Jazz Club next month!
Erimaj – Visions (Unreleased)
Robert Glasper‘s “Black Radio” album is already one of this year’s favourite picks, but what do we actually think about the “Black Radio Recovered: The Remix EP”? We were impressed by big names such as Pete Rock and Solange at first, but perhaps it was merely our high expectations that got the best of us. A so so remix from Georgia Anne Muldrow and a Questlove remix that was okay-ish. Could this really be it? Surely the level of niceness is nowhere near that of the album or are we missing something here?
Since we haven’t posted any new music lately, we thought we did owe you guys something. Not what we hoped for, but enjoy Mr Glasper thanking his fans and “Dillalude #2”. If you want this, go get it at .
Robert Glasper Says Thanks
Robert Glasper Experiment – Dillalude #2
Some of you might have been visiting the site this past week thinking ‘when are these guys going to post some new freakin’ music’. In all honesty we’ve been slowing down the pace considerably. A lot of new music sounds dull to us at the moment and seeing Moovmnt is a reflection of our personal music taste, we sometimes choose to remain silent rather than lower the bar. I just heard something brand brand new that caught my attention. State of Zoe is a band from Tallin Estonia that manages to fuse Jazz, Pop and Soul in such an organic way…I love it! Singer Anneliis Kits has a voice my ears can really appreciate. It’s our pleasure to introduce you all to State of Zoe. Oh and for just 2 euro’s I think you all should get their “Mind” (Part I) EP by the way.

We’ve all been waiting anxiously for Jose James‘ upcoming “No Beginning, No End” album due on Blue Note next year. The wait is far from over, but in the meanwhile Mr. James dropped the “It’s All Over Your Body” EP containing a dope remix from DJ Spinna as and perhaps an even doper remix by Oddisee’s that isn’t on the EP. We urge you to cop this on , because Robert Glasper, Chris Dave and Pino Palladino make for a must buy!
