Tenderlonious is back with some flute laced funk on 22a and fellow Peckham music maker, Henry Wu joins Cologne's Tito Wun on a trademark, South London groove. There's a BRUK Jay Daniel riddim, an amazing cut from iZem's debut on Soundway, and we've got the hip-hop heads covered with new ATCQ, Australia's own, Remi and a neck snapper from Common's latest album, Black America Again. LA's Josef Leimberg and Terrace Martin join forces on a bad-ass Miles Davis cover, Erykah Badu's band, RC & the Gritz come with the stank groove and there's more jazz niceness from Azymuth, Relaén, Uyama Hiroto and Yussef Kamaal Trio.
