The Seshen - Dive

Seshen marks the return of San Francisco Bay Area-based band The Seshen. Brimming with aggressive, danceable rhythms and emotionally charged lyrics, the track is the first single taken from "Cyan". Taking its name from a colour that is both strong and soft, the LP unravels the progression that has been made since 2016’s ‘Flames and Figures’, both as a band and as individuals.

The Sorcerers - Summoning the Monkey God

ATA Records are proud to announce the new 45 from The Sorcerers. Taken from the upcoming LP 'In Search of The Lost City of The Monkey God''Summoning The Monkey God' covers a wide range of influences: Ethiopiques Ethio-Jazz rubs up against European library music of the 60s and 70s. The Sorcerers seamlessly blend these disparate elements into one cohesive sound. Based in ATA Records' home of Leeds, The Sorcerers form the backbone of the ATA Records house band including drummer Joost Hendrickx (Kefaya, Shatner's Bassoon, Abstract Orchestra) and ATA label heads Neil Innes (Bass & Guitar) and Pete Williams (Woodwinds & Percussion). Bass clarinets, flutes, and esoteric percussion that sit alongside bass, guitar and drums are essential to The Sorcerers sound providing cinematic textures on top of a solid rhythmic foundation.

'Summoning the Monkey God' builds on the success of the bands sell-out debut ('The Sorcerers - ATA002') and follow-up 45 ('In Pursuit Of Shai -Hulud - ATA007') with an edit of a track from their forthcoming 2nd LP aimed at dancefloors and djs. The b-side 'End Credits' is also taken from the album alongside an exclusive 45 only version 'End Credits (Alternate Version)'. Both b-sides feature Flautist Chip Wickham ('Sombra' & 'Shamal Wind' - Lovemonk Records).

J Jazz Volume 2 – Deep Modern Jazz from Japan 1969 – 1983

Following the sell-out success of the landmark compilation, J Jazz: deep modern jazz from Japan 1969-1984, BBE Records is thrilled to present another exploration into the very finest Japanese modern jazz.

J Jazz 2 builds on the solid foundation of the first compilation and sees co-compilers Tony Higgins and Mike Peden once again pick choice sections from their own record collections. They present a deep dive into an intoxicating and beguiling range of styles: from cinematic roaring big-band (Little G by Nobuo Hara) and sparse minimal acoustic funk (Teru Teru Bozo by Teru Sakomoto), to deep spiritual modal epics (Dragon Dance by Makoto Terashita and Harold Land) and funk fusion (Mother of the Future by Electro Keyboard Orchestra). J Jazz 2 delivers more astonishing high quality jazz that will appeal the old school hard-core jazz head as much as those digging the current sounds of the current vibrant jazz explosion in the UK and USA.

The specially chosen tracks on J Jazz volume two span across 25 years of Japanese musical progression and invention. From the elegiac stark beauty of Serenade to a Dimly Lit Street and the modal vortex of Daguri, to the fierce post-bop freedom of Bull Trout and the mid-tempo bossa lilt of Vietnam, there is enough here to satisfy the most curious and demanding jazz fan seeking something extra special. J Jazz 2 is available across all formats

Omar - Benefit, Alton Miller/Kai Alce Mixes

People of Earth finishes 2019 strong with it's twelfth release from UK singer/songwriter OMAR. The track "Benefit" was written and performed by Omar and originally appeared on Boddhi Satva's "Transition" album in 2015. Now we have two legendary producers on remix duty, Alton Miller and Kai Alce. Each lending their signature styles to the vocal. 

Alton gives the vocals a special treatment. A silky smooth mix with a fierce baseline, jazz influenced keys and a hefty dose of rhythmic percussion. A peak time track that continuously bumps. Kai honors us with three mixes. His vocal mix has us dancing with old school chords, lush pads, a swinging house beat and an added Roy Ayers vibe. In addition to the instrumental dub we have a the Dub 2 mix which is a solid groove with vocal chops.

Sefi Zisling - Flip Mode

Flip Mode is the second single fro Sefi Zisling, Tel Avi's top trumper player sophomore alum: Expanse. Inspired by Sun Ra's use of abstract melodies on the jazz-fusion classic Lanquidity. Flip Mode embraces the free-funk, creating a distinctive groove that allows the track to stand out from the rest of the record.

Atlas Maior - Riptide

Riptide is Atlas Maior's fourth album proper and is their most intricate effort to-date as the eleven-song album traverses American jazz, Middle Eastern and Indian traditions. The powerful combination of styles produces hypnotic, transportive soundscapes with gripping, often intense passages, that bring to mind the epic compositions of Kronos Quartet or the mysticism of Le Trio Joubran.
