In need of a dose of great R&B, soul, funk, and jazz? Need a one-stop compilation to fulfill all your needs? Then look no further than Tokyo Dawn Records' latest release, The Heart Volume 2. Following from The Heart and The Boogie (as well as releases from their own stable of artists), The Heart Volume 2 features new, exclusive, and unreleased material from some of the best established and up-and-coming talent on the scene. There are tracks from "intergalactic funkstress" Amalia, Marc Mac & Eric Rico, Vindahl, Bobby (Robin Hannibal's solo project), and Boom Clap Bachelors amongst others. I've been playing this on repeat over the last 24 hours, and it's definitely one of the best compilations I've heard this year. Take a listen to the Boom Clap Bachelors' remix of Vindahl's "Down" and Psaul's "Change" below. The official release is available on July 29th, however a pre-release digital version is available direct from Tokyo Dawn here.
