The 21-track collection, out July 17th, features Tenderlonious, Yazmin Lacey, Hector Plimmer and other London jazz artists.
The label arm of London record store Sounds Of The Universe, which has an extensive catalogue that spans archival reggae, krautrock, jungle, leftfield techno and house, turns to the blossoming British jazz scene on this latest collection.
Artists such as Tenderlonious And The 22archestra, Yazmin Lacey, Hector Plimmer, Matthew Halsall, Joe Armon-Jones, Emma-Jean Thackray and Makaya McCraven have all contributed to the 21-track release, which the label says ranges from deep, spiritual jazz and punk-infused funk to electronic experimentations.
The compilation will be released as a double-CD pack or a triple-LP with a third option including a 7-inch. A one-off 12-inch pressing of the Theon Cross and Pokus tracks will also be made available as a separate release.
