Ivan Subtle, minimalist tracks, big and open record. I really like the grooves and the trip hop-ish elements. Awesome! Favorite track: Return.

Dr. Beaf UK strike again, what is in the water there? Big names playing on this release. Dark late night basement back room jazz session vibes. Really remarkable.

glenn france I've only recently begun to dip my toes into the waters of electronic jazz. I'm deeply schooled in hard bop. But having just begun to DJ a local jazz radio show (KOBV-LP streaming soon!), I put myself on a journey to discover new jazz music. I found The Peter Franks Group and immediately fell in love. They seem to have a perfect mix of modern electronics and a deep respect and knowledge of jazz history. Looking forward to more from this group.
