Whether you know drummer / producer Teppo Mäkynen as Teddy Rock or as his other solo alias The Stance Brothers, you don't want to mis out on his brand new album, 'Duktus'.

It's great that Finland's We Jazz Records is the home to his first new album in over 10 years as The Stance Brothers after teasing us with a long series of 7" singles and appearances on compilations like Jazz Don, Paul Murphy's 'The Jazz Room (see review HERE).

Tracks like 'Sao Paulo' and 'Deeper Tones' put him in that super cool nu-jazz hip-hop Madlib vs. Mizell Brother of the north. 

If you're missing the early Dublab/Thundercat/CDr vibes, this is a huge album that's ready for you to get.

Love 'Further East' which reminds a little of Daedelus' forays and the dub beats of 'Futuristic Earth'.

This is a great percussion/dance forward collection al a mixtape with equal room for head noddin' and jazz beard strokin'.

Full props to We Jazz Records as this is such a difference album to their most recents,  Kenneth Jimenez' 'Sonnet To Silence' (see reveiw HERE) or Mike Reed's 'The Separatist Party' (see review HERE) - or is it?
