Bentzon Brotherhood - Godzilla des Groove [2004]

A slick groovy jazzy live album that ranges from instrumental Herbie Hancockery to smooth vocal Acid Jazzery and an obvious signal that the Brotherhood had more to come - which of course they have delivered with a number of solid funky singles on Freestyle Records - let's just hope that Nikolaj Bentzon find time amongst his other projects to deliver another album of equal calibre and building on the direction he's moved in with freestyle records

Low Fidelity Jet-Set Orchestra - Searching For A Bit Of Popularity [2008]

I feel guilty. I mean this is the first and thus far only full length release by the LFJSO and I'm too lazy to strip it down to 128kb to ease my conscience - so maybe I'm just desperate for friends and, boy, I bet some of you will be greatful - this is the sort of stuff that should be on flatsoulspreading, let's go get it or jinkz musings - deep groovin funk, lashings of hammond, and just the right amount of jazz to rock my world and funk my pillow (I try to ignore the weak album cover!). Besides needing to share this discovery and the apparent lack of awareness I can only say the guys behind this aren't newcomers they 've been busy lofi lounging italian mafiarte for a while now in the guise of Modulo 5 and others. Which I can't and won't hold against them now they've dropped this bomb !(I, like many of us I suspect, have a love hate relationship with lounge and lofi)

Get listening this is the one - and I have no doubt I'll see a flurry of reposting of this babe (you know who you are)
