Marcia Griffiths “Feel Like Jumping” (Coxsone)

All good in ‘hood with the Kingston queenpin rocking the yard.

The Gloaming “The Gloaming” (Real World)

Stop the lights, we have the potential album of the year already. Groundbreaking, skyscraping and grandstanding set of sounds.

Aufgang “Istiklaliya” (Infine)

Last year’s sublime album from one of last weekend’s big hits at the Eurosonic festival in Groningen

Dean Blunt “The Redeemer” (Hippos In Tanks/World Music)

Smart far side psych and soundscapes from the former Hype Williams’ dude

Ultramarine “Every Man and Woman Is A Star” (Brainiak)

Pastel electronica from the early Nineties which still has considerable shine.
