The 80s was the decade of the 12 inch. In the UK, all previous instalments of this series sold extremely well and received widespread critical acclaim. The Guardian called the series a "genuine act of music archaeology". From the pop dance genius of Frankie Goes To Hollywood's Relax and Donna Summer's I Feel Love through to the more alternative Lullaby by The Cure, and onto classics such as Teardrops by Womack & Womack… This 3CD compilation has it all, in its full 12" glory.

For 2017 Z Records will be back in the funk hot-seat, but this time Joey Negro presents a snapshot of the edgier, robotic sounds of the emerging early 80s Electro scene. From stone-cold classics such as Hashim's 'Al Naafiysh (The Soul)', Tyrone Brunson's 'The Smurf' and Key-Matic's 'Breakin' In Space' to revered party anthem's such as Aleem's 'Release Yourself (Dub)', Two Sisters 'High Noon (Part 2)' and Dwayne Omarr's 'This Party's Jam Packed' to electro oddities like Paul Hardcastle's 'Rain Forest' and The Packman's 'I'm The Packman' we get a genuine labour of love and a timely reminder of the raw drum machine sounds that were soon to define the beginning of the house and techno scenes we have today.

Jazz, Folk, World, & Country | 01:05:53 | Mp3, 320 kbps | 152 MB
Label: Heavenly Sweetness | Year Of Release: 2015

Nouvelle compilation “Kouté Jazz”, 12 titres de jazz antillais sélectionnés par Digger’s digest, sortie le 25 septembre (digital,CD,LP).
Le jazz et les Antilles, c’est une vieille histoire, dont on trouve traces dès les premiers enregistrements. D’Alexandre Stellio à Jean-Claude Montredon, d’Al Lirvat à Marius Cultier, de Jacques Coursil à Mario Canonge, la liste est longue de ceux qui ont établis une connexion durable entre ces deux univers si proches. Pour qualifier le jazz antillais, on parlera aux premières heures de swing caribéen, de jazz biguine, une vague qui va débarquer en Europe dans l’entre-deux-guerres. « Les Antillais ont apporté beaucoup de musiques dans leurs bagages, mais les Français ne se sont alors pas rendus compte que le chaînon manquant entre les Etats-Unis et La France, c’étaient les Antilles ! », se souvenait en 2002 le poète Roland Brival, dont le cultissime Creole Gypsy était alors tout juste réédité.

Back To Love celebrates the finest club classics that paved the way for a whole generation of music lovers. With a 90s revival in full swing and the sounds of the 80s still influencing new music, it's always time to wipe the dust off the 80s and 90s records we once loved. This album will bring back memories of legendary soul-infused house and hip hop anthems. Including vocally dominated anthems from Incognito & Jocelyn Brown, Degrees of Motion and Donna Summer as well as house classics from Nightcrawlers and Ultra Naté, Back To Love represents hip hop and house with the likes of Jungle Brothers, A Tribe Called Quest and DJ EZ Rock.

"After the widely noticed performance at the „Acht Brücken Festival 2016” at Cologne's Philharmonic Hall, Gregor Schwellenbach, Hauschka, Erol Sarp (of „Grandbrothers“), Daniel Brandt, Paul Frick (both of "Brandt Brauer Frick") and John Kameel Farah will be releasing their interpretation of Steve Reich’s "Six Pianos" as a studio recording via FILM. The re-recording of this piece is an interpretation of Reich’s composition but still far more than just that – it is a modern approach to his idea behind it. "Keyboard Study #1" by Terry Riley is a worthy b-side opposed to Reich’s composition. The piece is kind of a building set of ever lengthening, repetitive patterns played against each other with the right and left hand displaced. The composition proposes various possible combinations for the performer to choose from and repeat at will. And what the performers have chosen proves Gregor Schwellenbach’s assumption: "Especially Terry Riley’s and Steve Reich’s music are open doors for pianists socialized by pop music and their audience".

Something of a smooth jazz oriented answer to the label's 2003 straight-ahead compilation Jazz After Dark, this highly engaging two-disc set features oft-played radio hits that have helped define the genre's generally easy grooves and colorful melodies. For diehard fans, smooth jazz has always been as about much about lifestyle as music, and these tracks will no doubt remind them just why they became devotees. All the early classics (circa mid-'70s to mid-'80s) are here, from Kenny G.'s "Songbird" and Dave Grusin's "Mountain Dance" to George Benson's "Breezin'" and Grover Washington, Jr.'s "Just the Two of Us." These are supplemented by later hits like Boney James & Rick Braun's "Grazin' in the Grass" and Dave Koz's "You Make Me Smile." But it's not simply an objective survey of smoothness at its best. The collection also seems designed to promote artists in the Concord Jazz stable – David Benoit and Russ Freeman, the Rippingtons, the Braxton Brothers, Gato Barbieri, Eric Marienthal, and Cassandra Reed, among others.
