2022 has been another year of consistent quality music from BBE. The fantastic J Jazz series rolls on with 5 releases this year, whilst we have also issued highly sought after Jazz re- presses from Norway and Germany, both of which have been fetching insane prices via online collectors. BBE also released an album from the legendary composer and artist Brian Jackson who received Worldwide fm’s lifetime achievement award this year.
2022 has also seen a return to the dancefloors and to festivals for many in this post- pandemic world. We Out Here being a particular highlight.
Jazzanova delivered delightful recreations of some Strata Records classics.
Two Soul Fusion ( Josh Milan & Louie Vega) remixes of Brian Jackson and MF Robots are must haves for the discerning house music DJs.

Alina Bzhezhinska & HipHarpCollective also made their debut on BBE Music this year with the wonderful album ‘Reflections’.
