Bongolian - Moog Maximus
MOOG MAXIMUS see the welcome return of The Bongolian, AKA multi-instrumentalist and Big Boss Man front man Nasser Bouzida. His fifth album under the Bongolian moniker continues the musical journey where his last album 'Bongos For Beatniks' left off, taking us through the fractures of time like fellow traveller H. G. Wells. Nasser has now landed in ancient Rome, or is it on a set from Westworld? All we know our hero is armed with a bank of vintage synthesisers with a legion of heavy grooves in this a wildly eclectic fusion of Funk, Soul, Hammond Beat, Jazz and Sci-Fi Boogaloo. Back in 2001, Nasser Bouzida disappeared into his studio and created a solo set of recordings which resulted in the birth of his alter ego The Bongolian. Drawing on influences of Funk, Latin, Soul and Jazz Nasser produced an inspired selection of recordings blending elements of grinding percussion and heavy Bongo rhythms. The eponymous debut ‘The Bongolian’ was released early in 2002 to much critical acclaim, and followed up by the albums ‘Blueprint’, ‘Outer Bongolia’ and 'Bongos For Beatniks'. The albums have become record box essentials for DJs, finding a wide appeal from Dance and Hip-Hop to Rare Groove and Funk 45s fans. Nasser has also assembled a high calibre five piece live band with which The Bongolian have toured

Stereo Total - Yéyé Existentialiste
Yéyé Existentialiste is an essential compilation of the recording highlights of one of the world’s greatest exponents of lo-fi pop - Stereo Total. This album is the first ‘best of’ to fully cover the bands 20 years of releases with all the tracks being fully re-mastered. Stereo Total is the Berlin based French-German duo Françoise Cactus and Brezel Göring, whose playful eclectic music incorporates anything from New Wave, Pop Electronique, 60’s French pop mashed up with trashy Garage Punk Rock and Disco to form the band’s distinctive sound.

Jumbo's Matthew Bradshaw says "Mixing up electronics, funk, guitars and chic vocals Stereo Total were totally ahead of their time...From dancefloor ripping tracks, psyched-out futurist grooves and cute pop they were a quirky torch-carrier to Kraftwerk, Stereolab and Velvet Underground...Many of you might know the delicious pop of 'I Love You ONO' which recently featured on an advert but trust me...This retrospective is ESSENTIAL listening for summer!"

Baltic Fleet - The Dear One
Transitioning from the industrial backdrop of the last album 'Towers', The Dear One is set in the Pennine wilderness where an early 19th century diary of the same name is discovered providing the inspiration for a psychedelic tinged electronic soundscape. The new sound draws influence from the likes of New Order’s Movement, Daft Punk’s Homework, The KLF, Talking Heads, Boards of Canada and Tangerine Dream. The record documents a musical imagination of the lives of characters from the diary and blurs the lines between the diary and life here and now, touching on religion, loss and escapism.
