Nubya Garcia – Nubya’s 5ive [JRF0012LP]

Nubya fearlessly threw herself head first into this 5ive project, her debut recording, with a clear vision of what she wanted and was meticulous in her pursuit of her sound. Enlisting the help of fellow musical comrades from an exciting new wave of London based talent, Nubya tapped into well-seasoned, harmonious relationships with players that know and understand her – and this joyful union radiates through her compositions. Beautiful music, thoughtful and passionate playing.

T.Z. Junior – Sugar My Love [JAMWAXMAXI20]

Thandi Zulu known as T.Z. Junior was a young girl from Soweto. Original copies of T.Z Junior’s bubblegum-boogie cut “Sugar My Love” are hard to come by outside of the artist’s home country of South Africa. It’s been that way since the single was first released on Roy B Records in 1985, hence this tidy reissue from the on-point Jam Wax label.
