Woke rhythms and high spirited grooves from the vaults of two seminal Italian jazz labels, between the 70s and 80s intensely curated by Khalab.

A brand new Hyperituals compilation is ready to come out! Following the first volume (dedicated to the Soul Note catalogue, released in April 2022) the new double gatefold vinyl is entirely dedicated to the Black Saint catalogue. The selection focused on rhythms, grooves and Afrocentric traditions - blends moments in which the rhythmic aspect is powerfully explicit, with others in which the kinetic aspect dialogues on different levels with African American cultural contexts. There is no shortage of instances where the sound links the present to Africa or references the most ancestral rituals.

Black Saint and Soul Note always placed the artists, their visions, and their music at the centre, giving them total freedom of creative expression. It is thanks to this constant, cutting-edge and meticulous commitment that today we have some of the shiniest musical gems by Sun Ra, Archie Shepp, Don Cherry, Max Roach, Anthony Braxton, David Murray, and many others. And it is this long list of jazz gods and idols that led the two labels to be recognized as the best in the world by critics, winning the DownBeat Critics Poll for Best Record Label for six years in a row, from 1984 to 1990, conquering the American market. - Bandcamp
