    > 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
    > 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
    > breaks.
    > 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
    > from back 1998 but i got it only recently. mixed by kirk de georgio (aka
    > 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
    > 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
