Domino releases Four Tet much anticipated new album on January 25. “There Is Love In You” is Kieran Hebden’s fifth album and his first proper full-length in over four years offering nine new gems. Two pre-album singles, Love Cry and Love Cry Remixes are already out including Joy Orbison‘s fantastic retake of the equally great original version.

2010 will be the year of José James. After his much loved debut solo album “The Dreamer” released two years ago, he is ready to share his second one called “BLACKMAGIC” produced by the likes of Flying Lotus, Moodyman or Taylor McFerrin. Expect nothing but quality beats with the touch of José’s magical voice. Detroit Loveletter, Touch and Love Conversation are the main highlights. Gilles Peterson‘s website has the full monty on the album including background story plus audio previews. Since Verve Records signed JJ, there is also going to be a special album of jazz standards in duet with pianist Jef Neve called “For All We Know” on Impulse Records around May.
The first Silhouette Brown album became an instant classic when it came out in 2005. 5 years later Dego, Kaidi Tatham and the mighty Bembe Segue are back with “Two” maintaining the same top quality and soulful vibes now joined by extra US guests like Lady Alma or Sadat X. The Japenese Especial Records will put out the sampler Leave A Note and 2000black is releasing the album in early February. You can follow SB on twitter and 2000black.com is set to be relaunched very soon. Happy New Year to All!
