Following the critically-acclaimed 2012 release of their beat-centric compilation Tempo Dreams Vol. 1 (assembled by Detroit/UK producer-at-large Tall Black Guy), Brooklyn wax purveyors Bastard Jazz Recordings have returned with Volume 2 of the enlightening, genre-bending series. This time around, the label has enlisted Bay Area mainstay DJ/producers Teeko & B. Bravo, driving forces behind the transformative “modern funk” sound emerging out of the West Coast. Sticking with the series’ theme of showcasing new styles and emerging artists, curated by their own musical peers, Teeko and Bravo have conjured up an LP of mind-blowing tracks that push the limits of soulful electronic funk, outernational boogie, and cosmic hip-hop. Tempo Dreams Vol. 2 picks up where the first edition left off, bridging the gaps between various geographic locations and local scenes, while also reaching for new heights with soaring vocal features and dance-floor primed beats.

This DJ promo features four choice album cuts: the 80′s R&B-styled bomb “Hard Pressed” by Rojai and E.Live is complemented by left coast collective Mugpush‘s “Came Too Far”, channeling a deft balance of smooth P-Funk with killer rhymes from the ever-versatile Black Spade. Also included are two tracks featured on the limited edition 7-inch teaser: the deep & sexy nighttime-synth vibes of the K-Maxx joint “Dreamin’ Of You”, backed with Teeko and Bravo’s own Starship Connection keeping things bumping with “We Can Go All Night”, complete with sexy boogie thump, understated vocals and twinkling synths.

    Gotta go with the cuts from K-Maxx as well as Mugpush w/Black Spade. Not as immediately ear-grabbing as the first volume, but there’s promise here…

    nice to hear the fresh coast keeping the funk alive… “we can go all night” and “come too far” are the winners for me from the promo.
