German rare groove DJ Florian Keller picks refreshments of soul, funk, and disco by contemporary producers.

Music

Paul St. Hilaire: A Divine State of Mind

Paul St. Hilaire plays Caribbean blues, pulls at the strings of dub and roots with deep electronic slants -- and a most endearing idiosyncrasy shines through.

Music

Thomas Brinkmann: Klick Revolution

Brinkmann says this is "the sound of Sisyphus playing pinball with a rolling stone", which means it is futile to make sense of this album, it is barely musical or listenable... but irresistably intriguing.

Music

Various Artists: The Kings of Techno - Compiled by Laurent Garnier and Carl Craig

Aretha Franklin, The Stooges and Alice Coltrane, all on the shelves of record stores' techno section, as Craig and Garnier deliver a playground that makes you think.

Music

DJ Spinna: Intergalactic Soul

DJ Spinna's Intergalactic Soul opens: "From solar system to solar system / ready to blast off again." If you think you've rocked the earth to its utmost, what is the next frontier? Space, of course.

Music

Kieran Hebden is the scavenger of the corners and the cracks. He pulls rogue elements of folk from everything rather than the genre itself. And all the pieces fit, which is what makes this album truly fascinating.

Music

Ocote Soul Sounds & Adrian Quesada: El Nino Y El Sol

Ocote Soul Sounds and Adrian Quesada take their place as an Afro-Cuban Gotan Project -- or perhaps a Breakestra for beach relaxation -- with an album that is exceptional and essential.

Music

Das Bierbeben: Alles Fallt

Allien on downers for a session of ego preaching.

Music

SCSI-9: The Line of Nine
