We Love Yussef Dayes, we can’t stop talking about the Andre 3000 album and our Super-Sonic Family Album is our absolute winner. However, there’s so many more 2023 records that deserve some love. So we made y’all a list: check out the Super-Sonic “Bubbling Under” Albums of 2023!
Les Jardins Mystiques
Miguel Atwood-Ferguson (Los Angeles–based multi-instrumentalist, arranger, composer, music director) is no stranger to us. We love him for his Dilla tribute Suite for Ma Dukes, and his contributions on Fly Lo and Thundercat. He blessed us with 52 songs, 3 hours and 30 minutes. For us, It’s one of the best of the year.
Pink Siifu and Ahwlee collab with DJ Harrison, Melanie Charles, Jimette Rose, VCR, Mndsgn and even LadyBug Mecca from the legendary hiphop group Digable Planets.
Do we need to say more?
The Circling Sun
One of the surprises of the year. A fresh perspective on spiritual /modal jazz from New Zealand’s jazz luminaries. A true beauty.
AM I AN ADULT YET?
Lovely soul sounds from the UK. She’s one to look out for in 2024 as she about to blow up. If you like Cleo Sol and Sade, go check it out! On 8 February, she’s supporting NoName at Paradiso.
Muva Of Earth
align with Nature's Intelligence
Muva of Earth is on her own beautiful planet. Her music is a futuristic mix of things we love: Sun Ra, Alice Coltrane and Bjork. Mediative, venerable and healing.
Hiphop label Blackwoodz Studioz of underground artist Billy Woods totally took us off guard with this release. Leftfield avant garde street R&B with hiphop roots. Dark and deep. Just the way we like it.
(I'm just) Chillin', on Fire
Beautiful, spiritual, transcendental! Legendary producer, arranger, and composer Carlos Niño brings together all these collaborations for a truly special ambient jazz record.
