Today Ninja Tune releases another album we’ve been waiting for: Andreya Triana‘s debut album, Lost Where I Belong. Check out the beautiful still-motion picture video after the jump and grab some remixes from the official site. If you like the singles, you won’t be disappointed with this album. It’s a fantastic debut for the rising UK singer/songwriter and a brilliant addition to the Ninja Tune family, who celebrate their 20th anniversary this year – congrats!
There’s worldwide excitement about the new Jamiroquai album; funk fans are hungry. We’ve heard a bit of the first single “White Knuckle Ride” floating around online and soon it will be released on 10″ vinyl. They’re currently working on that and another single called “Blue Skies” for the new album, Rock Dust Light Star.
Head to Blind I For the Kids for the download.

Gilles Peterson starts off this week with a tribute to legendary jazz singer Abbey Lincoln, who just passed away a few weeks ago. Gilles plays her track with Max Roach and the appropriately titled “Long As You’re Living.” Later he gets into other acts like Systema Solar, Oriol, Moonstarr, Leatherette, Finn Peters and of course, more music you’ve never heard before.
Gilles also has a special guest mix from Uproot Andy (pictured above) of Brooklyn, a resident DJ at the weekly ‘Que Bajo’ party at Santos Party House (NYC). His mix involves lots of globally-influenced remixes of Los Rakas, Amadou and Mariam, Chief Boimba and more.
The Foreign Exchange‘s new album Authenticity will be self-released October 12, and now we have a download: “Maybe She’ll Dream Of Me.” The track features piano by Zo! and the usual duo of Phonte and Nicolay. It sounds like this will be another leap forward for the group, after the 2010 Grammy nomination for “Daykeeper ft. Muhsinah” off the last album, Leave it All Behind.
