From the moment he appeared as a serious participant in Australian popular music in 1966 he commanded attention.

In And Out Of Focus 1966-75 kicks off with three tracks by the Questions, Doug's first hit band - 'Sally Go 'Round The Roses' (a Top 15 Sydney hit), 'Hey Gyp' & 'And Things Unsaid'…

In seventeenth-century Germany, a Wunderkammer (typically translated as “Cabinet of Curiosities”) was a type of private museum collection in the home of an aristocrat. Always in search of the most fascinating music from this era, ACRONYM has unearthed a large number of previously unrecorded manuscript sonatas written by long-forgotten composers. Some of these pieces contain harmonic eccentricities, rhythmic or metric irregularities, or structural curiosities. This disc includes ten such works, ACRONYM's own musical Wunderkammer. The composers are Samuel Capricornus, Adam Drese, Johann Philipp Krieger, Andreas Oswald, Antonio Bertali, Daniel Eberlin, Philipp Jakob Rittler, Georg Piscator, Alessandro Poglietti, and Clemens Thieme.

An album led by guitarist Rick Laird, but a set that's probably equally noteworthy for the presence of tenorist Joe Henderson on a few tracks – who really shines here in an overlooked late 70s session! The core group is great enough – as Laird has these round, classic jazz guitar tones that slide in with soulful beauty next to the piano and Fender Rhodes of Tom Grant – and when Henderson's not around, Grant's solos are especially great – and really have this lyrical power that grabs us right away, and almost makes us forget the presence of Joe! But then Henderson comes back with that subtle edge of his – similar to his playing on the Mirror Mirror record – a raspy tone that really deepens the whole proceedings. Henderson produced the record, and plays on the tracks "Outer Serge" and "Tranquility".

House | MP3 320 kbps | 72:06 min | ~165 Mb
Label: Cloud 9 Dance | Tracks: 17 | Rls.date: 2015

Dutch house hero Laidback Luke is all about the art of being focused, a theme that runs throughout the LPs 17 tracks. Despite his love of concentration, this is actually his first new album since 2002. He soon makes up for lost time though, with many standout tracks including the insanely euphoric EDM of lead single "Let It Go" (feat Trevor Guthrie), the electro-house/bassline hybrid "The Chase" (feat Aruna) and the sleek Jacksons-style jam "Never Forget" (feat More and Killa Karma).
