MF Robots - Music For Robots (LP)


Well this has been a highly anticipated album release. If you're a fan of the talented British Soul Funk Jazz band 'The Brand New Heavies', then you'll be happy to know the founder 'Jan Kincaid' and vocalist 'Dawn Joseph' have formed the new Soul Funk Jazz band 'MF Robots'.

After earlier release track teasers "The Night is Calling" & "Come On With The Good Thing" the album has finally dropped. You can expect more great Soul Funk Jazz (with real instruments) and a continuation of great Brit Soul goodness. Check out the track "Sweet Harmony" & be sure to put this LP on repeat.

En Vogue - Electric Cafe' (2018 LP)


After 14 (or so) years, the notorious sexy RnB trio are back with an electrifying LP. Still keeping it RnB based & with a wider variety of genres, these ladies still sound Classy (& looking HOT!). With their first single release "Rocket" from the LP which is all over the American airwaves, also check out the track "I'm Good" (clip below). Not to many good RnB girl-groups around these days (if any), so it's a great day when quality acts/artists are still around & giving us what we love.

The APX - Electrik Funk (Deluxe Edition)


From Detroit & New York, Erika and Dee bring their organic musical talents to form a modern-day 80s retro Funk sound. And when you think 80s music you have to include the distinctive sound of a synthesiser, definitely a must! So if you're looking for new electric Funk but old & still holds that quality & freshness like so many 80s Funk groups to this day, then i would add this LP to your digital collection.

The APX - I'm In Love (The APX Remix), 2017 Jan - The After Party Experience.

August Greene - Optimistic (feat. Brandy)

The new Jazz/RnB/Hip-hop supergroup "August Greene" features hip-hop guru/actor "Common" with talented Grammy award winning producer "Robert Glasper" & drummer "Karriem Riggins". Their new introduction single "Optimistic" an urban classic from the great gospel group the "Sounds Of Blackness" is easily justified by the soulful vocals of "Brandy" & keeps the original RnB version still intact, but I shamelessly do confess that i am bias to this 80's cover as it is one of my all time favourites.

Keep an ear out for their self titled LP "August Green" which drops in March 2018 cause you know if the first single is quality like this, the bar has been set.

Ruff Endz - Virtuous Woman (single)


If you like your RnB sweet & sensual then you can't go pass the Baltimore duo of "Ruff Endz". It's been over a decade & a bit since we were last graced by their club hits & now their back with a fresh new album, but before the "Soul Brother" LP drops their latest single release sounds like a tease for quality East-coast RnB.

"Virtuous Woman" is a smooth hip grinding head nodder that i would definitely play in a dimmed-lighted sophisticated bar in the early hours of the morning. Check out the track yourself (below).

James Day - Song, Soul & Spirit (LP)

Released earlier this year (May 2017) & never too late to check out and to take us out of an incedible year of music. "James Day" is an outstanding song writer/producer and if there's one album i would set to an intimate Soulful evening it would be from this talented man. The track "It's All Divine" with the superb vocals of "Trina Broussard" & remixed by "Boogie Back" is one of my faves for 2017. Also adding "Who Can Tell The Heart" to be another timeless Soul uplifter. Check out the LP track previews & audio video below & most definitely add "Song, Soul & Spirit" your Soul RnB life playlist.

DJ Lambam rate: 8/10.

If you're a sucker for Christmas (like me) & Christmas songs with a touch of RnB Soulful flavour, then this is the ultimate Christmas RnB Soul album you need to play at every family Christmas gathering or work office Christmas party. "Expansion Records" (my favourite record label) has put together an incredible Christmas RnB Soul compilation with the likes of "Stephanie Mills, Patti La Belle, Will Downing, Trina Broussard, The Isley Brothers, Jeffery Osborne" just to name a few greats in the business. So If there's one Christmas LP you need to have in your collection, then this without hesitation is the one. Btw did i mention "Luther Vandross" was featured on this album too? Click the link below to listen to "Luther's" track featurted on the album.

DJ Lambam rate: 9/10 (again, would of been a 10/10 if released on vinyl)


Chante Moore - Christmas Back To You (LP)


815sqNjIzGL._SL1500_.jpg

Well there's no denying that "Chante' Moore's" warming voice is going to capture the spirit and soul of Christmas & if you're like me and enjoy untraditional Christmas carol covers then this is the album to give or be given this Christmas. Singing traditional Christmas carols with soul & RnB flavour "Chante" includes her own unique Christmas songs to the mix. So if you're going to listen to any Christmas albums this season, this is an album that will bring cheer to any Christmas joy.
