I guess when you see the “Gravity” of an “Epic Lie”, one must eventually come to an “Offering For Anxious”. This is exactly what Diggs Duke is doing next month when he releases his album on Brownswood Recordings. Now the true fans of Mr. Duke will already some of the songs in their possession, but there is enough new material on there to give this a listen. Pre-orders are available here.

Early 2012 the Robert Glasper Experiment unleashed “Black Radio” in to the world. It became highly celebrated and for this reason we at Moovmnt had high expectations of it’s successor. Though “Black Radio” 2 offers a solid seventeen songs with an impressive list of featuring artists such as Snoop Dogg, Common, Jill Scott, Brandy, Dwele, Faith Evans, Norah Jones, Macy Gray and Marsha Ambrosius. In our opinion it lacks the freshness and originality of the first volume. Still we believe a lot of you will love this album and for this reason we suggest you listen to it from beginning to end, purchase it if you desire and enjoy it to the fullest if you can.
This weekend team Moovmnt was out and about enjoying the sound of Andreya Triana, Moodymann and Omar at Birdfest in Rotterdam. Quit the surprise when this morning we come across a brand new remix by our buddy Opolopo from Stockholm. The song “Treat You” featuring Caron Wheeler gets a super stylish soulful club rework. Both the 12″ vinyl and digital files can be purchased at Kudos.
A good colloboration is like gold. Hard to find and of great value. Grooveman Spot and Sauce81, both hailing from Japan, decided to team up and release a double-sided 7″ under the name 77 Karat Gold on Jazzy Sport. The title track “Love” is a beautiful, mellow Soul song slighty reminiscent of some old unreleased Dwele material from 2001. Let us remind you we l o v e that ish! Already available in Japan and in stores worldwide on November 15th. Juno and Rush Hour might be your best bet in Europe.
One of our favorite Japanese labels, Wonderful Noise, has released it’s 31st release. And it’s a big one at that! Release no. 31 is Julien Dyne‘s third album “December”. The New Zealander has really outdone himself again this time and comes harder than a slab of concrete. Bangin’ beats with some vocal additions from Mara TK, Parks, She’s So Rad and Dalziel complete the circle. Watch for the imited 8-track EP and note that BBE will also release this one later this year. All in all…a definite cop!
Spending all that time in Frisco made me realize that the Bay area has quite some talent. Rojai and E-Live are two guys I met on my trip and when they told me they had just released an album together, Their song “Hardpressed” is on the new “Tempo Dreams” Vol. 2 compilation brought to you by Teeko, B. Bravo and Bastard Jazz. Also look out for The Starship Connection’s “We Can Go All Night” on 7-inch vinyl or just cop the entire 2xLP while you’re at it.
