Let No One Judge You
Early Recordings From Iran, 1906-1933

HONEST JON'S RECORDS

Ravishingly beautiful, achingly precious songs and instrumentals, sumptuously presented: the Royal Court Orchestra in 1906 through to a hauntingly soulful Hafez setting by Moluk Zarrabi of Kashan, from 1933.



Actress Splazsh
Dazzling melds of classic Detroit, grime, dubstep, speed garage, Paisley rock, synth-wave and the rest, with none other than the man not-himself crowned king.



Actress Paint, Straw And Bubbles
Three exclusives trailering the Splazsh album, including a carnivalesque house banger from Zomby. Out Detroit, UK bass science and UK funky, cold wave and Kraftwerk... a London thing, mongrel and dashing.



Actress Meets Shangaan Electro
An immersive, slashing, ecstatic thumper, just about getting Mars on the radio; and a kind of unhinged marimba and thumb-piano variation, grubbing around manically in half-memories of African polyrhythm.



Actress Rainy Dub
The implacable, alien Son Of Sleng Teng a beast of of a tune, lumbering and snuffling, one-of-a-kind bleeping, buzzing, knocking, dripping, reverberating... and unresolved in nine minutes.




Africa Boogaloo The Latinization Of West Africa
Rocking the party and ramming the dancefloor is the first priority of this review of Latin styles in classic West African dance music, as it emerged with 1950s anti-colonialism, and ran on gloriously into the 70s.



Damon Albarn / Phil Asher Sunset Coming On Remix
Broken remix by Phil Asher aka Focus/Restless Soul, featuring Kaidi Tatham on keys and (from the original Mali Music cut) Hassey Sare on violin.



Damon Albarn / Freaks Rappy Song Remix
Courtesy of Freaks Luke Solomon and Justin Harris of the Classic and Music For Freaks labels: the first mix is bumping tech-house, the B more of a Neptunes homage.



Tony Allen Lagos No Shaking
'CD Of The Week... the best soul album in the real sense of the word you'll hear this year... classic, blistering afro-beat', Daily Telegraph; 'as tight as a pressure cooker... fierce and fun', The Wire.



Tony Allen / Bonde Do Role / Elewedu Of Agege Awa Na Re Remix / Rhythm
Riotous funk carioca blasting out of Curitiba, Brazil, by these proteges of MIA-producer Diplo, fresh from their remix of CSS.



Tony Allen / Carl Craig Kilode Remixes / Original
Carl Craig back on Honest Jon's, in devastating form: nervy and urgent, epic and apocalyptic, kicking and funky as anything. The juiciest bits from Lagos (that drumming!) in fine and nasty Detroit style.



Tony Allen / Hypnotic Brass Ensemble / Salah Ragab Sankofa / One Tree / Ole
The shimmering, refined funk of Sankofa takes T's Losun for its departure point; the Cairo side is a burning basement session in the Ra big-band tradition, heavy on the percussion and choca with fine solos.



Tony Allen / 'Mark's Mix' Moyege Remix
This mix by Mark Ernestus one half of the Basic Channel, Maurizio and Rhythm And Sound teams kicks off our series of reworkings of tracks from Tony Allen's Lagos No Shaking album.



Tony Allen / Moritz von Oswald / Wareika Hill Sounds Ole Remix / Reggae Land Dub
After Mark Ernestus' mix of Moyege in this series, now his Basic Channel / Rhythm And Sound partner comes to the control tower.




Tony Allen / Terrence Parker One Tree, Spirit Of Unity Remix
Romping house, the old school way, from this underground Detroit original.
