Indie Release 2016

Full Tracklisting : 

Jump For Joy
The Prisoner
Valley and Stream
Twist in the Wind
Cold Spring
If I Only Had a Brain

Mark Wade hails from New York and is a rather tasty bassist and here is his debut album entitled "Event Horizon" along with Mark on Bass he has been joined by pianist Tim Harrison and Scott Neumann on Drums.

This album cuts across the boundaries that jazz has created within it's own genre it beautifully fuses mainstream and nu-jazz with a defined leftfield slant in my humble opinion.

The album has a 3 ringed complexity within the artist interaction that melds true genius.

Apogee, Tossed & Jump For Joy are the tracks which i have featured on our own shows and i intend to feature more.

 A Truly Impressive debut that i have had on my own shows playlist.

DA LATA "Asking Eyes"

Releases August 26, 2016

4.Asking Eyes (Radio Edit)

London groove masters and Afro Brazilian pioneers Da Lata are back with a new EP featuring an anthemic jazz- samba refresh of 'Asking Eyes', originally an unknown Italian obscurity and now reimagined and backed up by two beefy re-edits from London's original, Phil Asher.

“Asking Eyes” was originally recorded by the Raffaela Renzulli Ensemble in 1987. The original version was fundamentally a song in two halves, the first being slow and ballad-like, the second being a spritely jazz samba of just the type that’s always been a staple of the jazz-dance fraternity.
Da Lata couldn't resist the temptation of a new treatment and over the course of several performances, the arrangement developed organically with vocalists Vanessa Freeman and new Brazilian recruit Adriana Vasques leading the line. Produced by Chris Franck, "Asking Eyes" is a swinging samba with a decidedly funky edge. It’s Banda Black Rio meets Chic, perfect fodder for the forementioned jazz-dance fraternity dancefloor.
The choice of the track came from Da Lata's Patrick Forge having hunted the original down for his bi-annual hoedown with Gilles Peterson at London's legendary “Another Sunday Afternoon At Dingwalls”. The first time Patrick dropped “Asking Eyes” at the session, Peterson didn’t react, the second time he freaked!! Soon after, Gilles was courteous enough to ask if Patrick had any objection to his new signing, Cuban singer Daymé Arocena, recording a version. DJ etiquette at work. A few months later, the Da Lata band recorded their own version in a day at the Boogie Back Studios in London, created and recorded live in one take.
Whilst Da Lata continue putting together and recording new material taking them back to their Brazilian roots, “Asking Eyes” once again captures the fluency and fluidity of the live band. It’s a groove thing. 

The musicians:
Drums - Davide Giovannini
Bass - Ernie McKone
Flutes - Finn Peters
Congas, Tamborim, Repinique - Carl Smith
Lead Vocal - Vanessa Freeman
Backing Vocals - Adriana Vasques
Keys - Mike Patto
Guitars, Tamborim, Percussion - Chris Franck

This Ep harks back to the 80's sound of Azymuth,Charles Earland & Boy Katindig in my opinion it's massive. 

The-illjazztic-One Greatest Hits (Limited Edition) Release 2016

The Illjazztic One - Disc Jockey-Taste Maker - Cosmic Explorer - beamed to earth via Southfield, Michigan -USA

After stints in a number of jazz fusion, funk, and reggae bands, the college years saw him move away from composing and creating music all together. However, his interest in music never waned and after graduating he became intrigued by the art of manipulating sounds and creating music using direct-drive turntables and a DJ mixer, a phenomenon referred to as “turntablism.”

After years of floating around in the underground Hip Hop and Breakbeat music scenes, Sebastian McLaren, now called The Illjazztic One, because of his constant habit of placing phrases of jazz instrumentation over hip hop beats, began working with Mutant Soundz, a Detroit based electronic music label with United Kingdom ties. It was that opportunity which paved the way for the formation of his own music production house, Dynamic Beats Abound, forging an eventual partnership with Soulful Child Records where he currently provides musical direction for a number of their mainstay recording artists.

This is the amalgamation of the beats that he has accumulated so far.

Release date: 8 July 2016
Genre: Soul / RnB / Neo-Soul
Label: Freestyle Records
Format(s): DIGI

Following on from 2013's album “The Man”, 2016 will see his new long player “Love In Beats”further cement his undeniable reputation - as a teaser, Freestyle Records are proud to present this brand new 4 track EP, “I Want It To Be”. The title track is a vibrant, syncopated groove, with a devastatingly catchy melody riding on top.

“Destiny” features vocalist Guadeloupe-born singer Jean-Michele Rotin. Further proof, that Omar’s ears are always open, and more than happy to bring lesser known artists into the spotlight. “Sissy Pa Sissy” is a brilliant & minimal, leftfield number, and to round off this collection, Scratch Professer - Omar’s Grammy winning brother and co-producer - delivers one of his trademark retwists on “I Want It To Be” - cut up beats, vocal samples and his utterly unique production skills - an exclusive to this single. 
Joseph Junior & MAQman
Go Go Music
Release Date :  Mar 25 2016

London’s Soul singer Joseph Junior and Vietnam’s House stalwart MAQman are back with their 4th single on GOGO Music. Their latest outing titled ‘Spiritualized’ is a song that has all the ingredients to do just what the title suggests. The release comes geared up with a Ralf GUM remix, who is adding his magic touch to this first remix work he did in 18 months.

Swiss born DJ/Producer MAQman began his career in 1999 when he started spinning records and shortly thereafter ventured into music production, too. After features on various Soul compilations with down- and mid-tempo tracks, MAQman soon focused on House Music. Now based in Saigon, Vietnam he keeps the soulful and deep house flag flying high, not only in his home-country, but as well with regular international DJ bookings. On his productions he continues to work with various musicians of different nationalities, which help him shape his unique sound. Adding on his schedule, MAQman is also a monthly resident on the GOGO Music Radio Show.

Joseph Junior was born into an environment steeped in a deep musical appreciation. His childhood in South London to Nigeria then London again, played out to an eclectic soundtrack stretching from the likes of Africa’s own Miriam Makeba and Fela Kuti to Detroit's Motown and the later artists like Anita Baker, Al Jareau, George Benson and Sade. Add to that jazz greats like Miles and Ella and you begin to understand the shaping of his writing.

MAQman and Joseph’s friendship and mutual love for music have brought us tracks like “I Don’t See Love” that propelled them from being underground to being track-listed by Soulful and House Music tastemakers around the world. It scored the rare most wanted 10/10 mark on renowned 5 Magazine (Chicago) and hit the Traxsource Soulful House Chart at #1. It was followed by “No Better Love“, which was called “another definite moment in the history of Soulful House” by Spirit of House (Switzerland) in 2012, “Can’t Do Without Out It” and now the new joint song “Spiritualized” which is set to gain greater attention for them once more.

Ralf GUM hasn’t done many remixes lately. After being focused on his two successful albums ‘Never Leaves You’ and ‘In My City’, released in 2012 and 2014, he is lately being carried away in the studio, as he started working on new own material and found a pleasure in remixing other artists again, too. His mix provides an uber-cool sound-sphere for the vocals to ride slick over it.

Although myself and Claire are incredibly biased toward Joseph Junior and we both love him dearly,this is pure class from the dynamic musical talent that is Maqman & Sir Ralf Gum of course.
