Power trio of von Oswald, Sasu Ripatti and Max Loderbauer return with their first release of 2013, staying closer to dub techno than previously. 'Blue' serenading serene depths, swirling synths, snickering percussion over dream dub bass, whilst the dub version cranks up a slowly heaving bass. Lush!
Following in the footsteps of Actress, another experimental techno artist joins the Honest John's stable: Rabih Beaini a.k.a Morphosis, whose five-track 'Dismantle' EP is a splendid workout of spluttering synth improvisation. Highly recommended.

Four fantastic dub tracks by Jamaican trombone giant Calvin Cameron and crew, from the rocking kumina rhythms of 'No More War' to the slow marching blues of closing 'Chant Rasta'. An excellent EP that's both hypnotic and spiritual.

Former Sun Ra trumpeter Phil Cohran proves that he still has the edge at 80+, recording this wonderfully swinging album for Honest Jon's together with his extended family, The Hypnotic Brass Ensemble. Wobbly, percussive jazz, mellowing out in brass blues songs towards the end of the playlist. Excellent.
