    hi all.

    i'm new to the list, i come from Greece, and here is a selection of recent
    tunes that captured my attention:

    g.k. deep - shots in a second ep (people); another quality modern funk
    release from those excellent people @ people. live drums, percs, brass &
    strings in 3 colorful tracks.

    nathan haines - sound travels (chilli funk); chillifunk usually releases
    jazzy house eps, but this is a standout dancefloorjazz gem from nathan
    haines & phil asher. as good as programmed jazzy music can really
    cant get better than this.

    calm ft spiritual african nova - the shadow of the earth (exceptional);
    spiritual, afro-flavoured, lazy, slow-pacing, deep house ala ron
    trent/jephte guillaume/joe claussell, but seen from a more 'ethnic' point of
    view. jazzy & funky elements are present throughout. nice classic-guitar
    solos featured.

    various - tribes vol 6/soul searching (infracom); this 6th member of the
    renowned german series takes a turn towards 'nu-soul' & soulful newschool

    various - batucada vol 2/batucada por favor (mr bong); not your average
    brazilian comp; but then, which mr bongo release could be called average?
    this is a killer selection of 60s & 70s batucadas from european artists.
    just listen to the last monster track, a 20-min dancefloor killer from
    german underground bongo group 'niagara'...

    various - synthesis/a techno-jazz synthesized journey (x:treme); this one's
    from back 1998 but i got it only recently. mixed by kirk de georgio (aka 'as
    one'), it starts like a minimal tech-house set (moodyman, common factor,
    waiwan), but progressivelly dives into abstract/electrojazz territories,
    with tracks by as one himself (btw, if you can find his 'in with their arps
    and moogs...' lp on clear, buy it with no second thoughts), sun ra, herbie
    hancock, and a nice 'dewolfe' library tune called sunken ship. if you like
    stuff by ian o'brien, classsen collective, scuba etc you'll dig this.

    that's all for now.

    take care,

    steve @ DHA
