Review: Serious reissue business: Be With take us back to 1971 for Air's one and only album. The brainchild of Googe Coppola (who you may recognise from Fire Island or cameos with Jeremy Steig) and her partner in jazz Tom Coppola, you can hear vapour trails of the pastoral, laidback folk of the late '60s with a more forthright funk energy and jazz mindset as the lovers and their bandmates dazzle us with meandering melodies and stories; from The Doors level organ frenzy of "Baby I Don't Know Where I Love" to the galloping momentum of "In Our Time" that suddenly stops dead into an almost medieval breakdown by way of ballads such as "Sister Bessie" and Afrobeat-style horn chaos like "Lipstick", this really captures an exciting time in music and, if the music is as honest as it seems, a rather exciting time in the lives of the Coppolas too...

Review: Odion Iruoje aka Sound President was one of Nigeria's top producers in the 1970s and early '80s, but his solo recording career was restricted to just the one release, Down To Earth. Originally released on Iruoje's own label, Odion Ltd, in 1983, it was only ever distributed in small quantities and Soundway Records have given this much needed re-issue. Iruoje is known for having signed the legendary Fela Kuti to major label EMI and acting as his producer throughout the early '70s. Starting out with the proto funk rap cut "Identify With Your Root (Which One You De?)", there's some killer West African boogie-funk-soulfulness on "Ikebe" and some feel good disco vibes; Lagos style on "Love Care".

Review: Still scorching from the heat of their debut album 55, Hamburg's mysterious steel pan handlers return with a dope little 45 that features one of the excellent covers from their album plus an exclusive that we guarantee will drive your next floor crazy... Dennis Coffey's "Scorpio" takes the lead with its instantly distinctive break and pace. Flip for Sugarhill's "8th Wonder" that's riddled with confidently swung drums, smoky trumpets and a groove so funky you might just have to drop it twice. Give the drummer some.

Review: The Kat Edits label have scored a real coup here, licensing a pair of tweaks the legend Domu originally committed to a super-rare Japan only CD compilation for the ESP DJ Classics series back in 2009. Domu's always been a classy producer no matter what he turns his hands to and this pair of edits really do deserve to be preserved on the vinyl format - kudos to Kat! Up top, "Love Vibes" by The Emotions is given a slightly upwards pitch adjustment by Domu, with plenty of skilled filtering to boot, whilst the B-side sees Claudia Barry's classic 1978 jammer "Give it Up" is embellished with some extra raunch sauce.

  1. Young People (4:35)
  2. Problems & Pain (3:54)
Review: Australia's Choi Records keep the funk hot with a second seven inch serving in a matter of months that introduces the Juno office to the refined sounds of Melbourne troupe Fulton Street. The funk and soul septet are led - in classic fashion - by the wonderfully belting vocals of lead singer Shannon Wick whose commanding delivery ensures lead track, "Young People", slots in nicely in the long-running canon of socially-conscious funk jammers. Behind her, the Fulton Street band show what a tight instrumental unit they are. On the flip, Fulton Street's groovier side comes to the fore on "Problems & Pain" with Sly & The Family Stone and The JBs coming to mind as the band's organ and sax players lead the way. A great 7".

  1. Make Me Believe In You (Tom Moulton remix) (6:28)
  2. Ain't No Love Lost (Tom Moulton remix) (5:47)
Review: Should you require further evidence of the all-round genius of Curtis Mayfield, look no further than this early '70s funk gem from Patti Jo. "Make Me Believe In You" was written and produced by the velvety-voiced musician in 1973, one of just a few singles released by Patti Jo but undoubtedly now an all-time classic. That rolling drum intro, the ear-wagging piano, the subtle orchestration and, above all, Patti Jo's killer vocal all combine for a perfect example of the halcyon days when funk was beginning to transform into disco. Mayfield himself later covered the track for the closer to his Sweet Exorcist LP! This BGP 7" sees Tom Moulton's extension of "Make Me Believe In You" combined with his remix of the other Patti Jo burner, "Ain't No Love Lost". Any self-respecting DJ needs the A-side though.

  1. Alfredito Linares - "Boogaloo Girl" (2:45)
  2. Charlie Palomares Y Su Yuboney - "Vives Bugaloo" (2:41)
Review: Launched in June last year, the Radio Martiko label has reflected the international flavour of funk, soul, jazz and more that have made the Ghent collective's DJing and online mixes so memorable. On this third 7", Radio Martiko head into the boogaloo with some newly remastered Peruvian afro jazz floor burners. Up top is "Boogaloo Girl" from Alfred Linares, originally issued as a B-side from the period the cult Lima musician was residing in Cali, Colombia. It's a real boogaloo gem and deserves a belated A-side billing here thanks to Radio Martiko. Fans of the Vampi Soul label might recognise Charlie Palomares Y Su Yuboney's "Vives Boogaloo" after it opened their 2007 compilation, iGozalo! Bugalu Tropical Vol. 1. It appears on 7" for the first time as far as we can see and is a wonderfully harmonic little number.

  1. Come To Me (Nik Weston Official extended re edit)

  3. LA Walk (Nik Weston Official extended re edit)
Review: It would be fair to say that Estiban Lindsay's one and only album, 1980's L.A Walk, is something of a sought-after rarity. Considered by many disco/boogie diggers to be a must-have, original copies of the Canadian classic currently change hands for three-figure sums online. Ever the dusty-fingered digger, Nik Weston has managed to license two tracks from the album after hearing global trotting DJ Hunee championing the main track in his sets in 2015 , and provides his own extended dancefloor re-edits. Both are subtly done, with Weston teasing out Lindsay's grooves and making more of his deliciously soulful versions, all without adding needless house drums or contemporary production tricks. The EP also contains the original version of the warm, disco-boogie gem "Come To Me". As played by Hunee,Eddie C,Tom Noble,Admin , Mike Shaw, Volcov,Frank Booker,Red Greg, Ashley Beedle,Joey Negro.Dom Servini,Miles Eastwick and more...

Review: If it weren't for young and energetic bands like Breakdown Brass, the New York soul and funk scene would be a true relic of the '70s and '80s era. Luckily, these whipper-snappers know how to lay down the truth, and their reinterpretation of Rick James' "Mary Jane" is a total winner - all brass and instruments, of course. On the flip, you have a brass version of Nadev Nirenberg's "The Horseman", a masterful adaptation of what is surely one of the most hummable rhythms ever. Limited!

Review: Kylie Auldist is a heavyweight Aussie soul singer whose powerful lungs have graced many a hit over the years. Now, with the help of Lance Ferguson and Graeme Pogson, she's recorded a solo album, Family Tree, and this here EP features a selection of tracks from it. Gone is the raw funk vibes of old with Auldist opting for a bright and synthetic mid-'80s pop-soul sound instead. It largely works too with the Donna Allen-esque "Sensational", the chrome and carpet grooves of "Family Tree" and the late-'70s US funk style of "Rewards" as standouts.

Review: Few bands out there are more worthy of belonging in the canon of appropriately-named acts than The Funkees. Formed in the aftermath of the Biafran Civil War in Nigeria to raise spirits, the band swiftly conquered the dancefloors of Nigeria and were soon off to London to achieve similar feats at Ronnie Scott's and other such legendary venues. Originally released in 1976, Now I'm A Man was the band's second LP and captured the Nigerian troupe three years into their London-era pomp, delivering a vibrant eight-track salvo of psychedelically-charged music that tightly fused afro, funk, rock, disco and more. Austrian archivists PMG step up with a timely reissue that reminds us just how damn funkee The Funkees were - the jungle bongo of "Salam" and straight-up party jam of "Dance With Me" being particular highlights.

Review: In terms of being an afrobeat legend, Pasteur Lappe is Cameroon's Fela Kuti, an unsung hero who was ahead of the game back in the 1970s and 1980s, and one whose been famous for burning the pockets of many diggers nowadays. Luckily, Africa Seven have compiled some of his best work onto a ten-track LP, ranging from the funky oddities of "More Sekele Movement" or "Na Real Seke Fo'ya", to the future-zouk sound of "Sanaga Calypso", and plenty of jazzy, popped-out, disgruntled soulfulness to satisfy anyone from Gilles Peterson to Cherrystones. Heavy and warmly recommended.

Even if you don't know it by name, Moreira's "Celebration Suite" should be instantly familiar, a jazz-fusion/samba batucada anthem that truly lives up its joyous name!! Flip it over and Gilberto Gil is on hand for a more mellow accompaniment in the shape of bossa samba standard "Maracatu Atomico," lifted from his 1975 album Viramundo. Comes as a yellow and green samba seven special!

Review: Killer new Sofrito 12" with hypnotic Carnival rhythms, DIY electro and vital Compas experiments from the Haitian archives! Lead in the way is a subtle edit of "Zanmi Camarade" from Claudette & Ti Pierre by Stockholm's Tropical Treats crew, this 1979 cover version of the folk song that is quite bewildering, with haunting vocals weaving a spell over a heavy polyrhythmic drum machine groove and arpeggiated synth backing. Just as impressive is the Siwo update of Ti Marcel's rugged, hypnotic Rara track "Nan Point La Vie" is dominated by the single-note 'Vaksin' bamboo flute, which Sofrito call "nature's sub-bass". Holding it down on the B Side is some untreated material, with an Ibo Combo cover of Coupe Cloue's evergreen "Mateau" complemented by a "Pile ou Face" from Les Loups Noirs which was a highlight of the Strut compilation Haiti Direct.

Review: Having explored the rich heritage of Nigeria and Ghana with well researched vigour, Soundway turn to Kenya for their next adventure... A rare insight: while Lagos was churning out seminal Afrobeat compositions, Kenya took to western influences in a much subtler fashion. With heavy emphasis on the Kenyan benga and Afro-Cuban rumba there's a much deeper, local folk presentation and format throughout most of the selection. Complete with detailed notes and beautiful presentation (like all Soundway compendiums) this won't look out of place in any collection.

Review: The new soft-spoken, hard-rocking group from Baltimore debuted their full length live show at the Wolf + Lamb Marcy Hotel this March. Following in the footsteps of greats like Nicolas Jaar and PillowTalk, they were the first invited guest in over 2 years to perform at the legendary Brooklyn proving grounds. Life on Planets is a duo that met in the studio lofts of their east coast hometown, whereby a collaboration fusing indie artrock and electronic music began to take shape. It was a pairing of two dramatically different personas, merging as one for a serendipitous, romantic sound that's now been signed to the Double Standard label. Life on Planets has also released music through Better on Foot, where the debut single 'Apollo' made waves in early 2014. The touring act features live vocals and guitar, backed by a dj/producer, dawning a long-awaited return to authentic songwriting in dance music.

Review: Since Nick The Record has one of the deepest collections going, it's little surprise that his ongoing Record Mission series has delivered some killer re-edits of ridiculously obscure gems. For this third 12", he once again joins forces with Idjut Boy Dan Tyler to rework a trio of gospel-tinged cuts from the late '70s/early '80s. Arguably most impressive is A-side "Highway To Heathen", a gradually rising, off-piste, boogie-era disco jam blessed with killer talkbox vocals. On the flip you'll find the more straight-forward gospel sing-along of "For Heathen's Sake", and "he Touched Me", a slower, more soulful gospel excursion that benefits greatly from lashings of Tyler's trademark space echo and tape delay.

Review: One of many essential K&A compendiums, Off Track Volume 2: Queens was originally released in 2008. The second in their companion series to their career-making On Track series, it's yet another digging exercise that is so deep you wouldn't be surprised at the sight of a huge oil gush. Ranging from psychedelic jazz (Bob Brault Org) and fuzzy lo-fi hammond-bashing samba (Super Boire Band) to straight up hip-shifting disco (Sweet Touch) to soul-warming African folk (De Porto Novo Dahomey) and complete with a peppering of their own edits, no one does collections like Kon & Amir.

  1. Sharon Revoal - "Reaching For Our Star" (3:41)
  2. Swan Silvertones - "If You Believe Your God Is Dead (Try Mine)" (3:13)
Review: Mukatsuku Records dig deep once more with a sweet little 45 featuring two officially licensed stormers dripping with rarity. "Reaching For Our Star" from Sharon Revoal is a big soul monster that you may well have heard dropped in sets from Gilles Peterson, Sam Floating Points and Four Tet. Originally surfacing on the Forte Records label circa 1980, the track is fairly bossed by the low slung disco bassline and Sharon's sultry vocal delivery and will nice up any disco or funk dance. Mukatsuku make this 7" all the more delicious with the B-side presence of The Swan Silvertones jammer "If You Believe Your God Is Dead (Try Mine)" which is surely one of the funkiest gospel 45's to come out of the early 70's!! As played by DJ Spinna,Ge Ology on NTS,Sadar Bahar,Red Greg,Ashley Beedle,Marc Hype,Nicola Conte,Juergen Jazzanova,Floating Points and many more

Review: Label owner Nik Weston is no stranger to a bit of funk n disco editing, and his Mukatsuku imprint is home to some of the rarest and most coveted Afro tunes around, always anted-up and reinvented for the modern dance floor by the man himself. 2 official tracks licensed from BBE with get the tasteful edit workout kicking off with "Love Me For Real" by Rim & Kasa, an instantly seductive disco killer with an ever-growing groove, sweaty, funked out vocals and an altogether sublime vibe for the party. Over on the flip, Rim Kwaku Obeng's "Gas Line" gets a sublime makeover, making it totally accessible to just about any DJ looking to shake things up and get everyone down on the ground. It's another Weston missile, be quick! Comes with Juno exclusive sleeve +sticker.

Review: Do not adjust your browser, it's Milton Bowser: one of Germany's few true funkateers from the late '70s foundation era. Armed with just a smidgeon of compere kitsch and big band showmanship "The Ride" is a punchy sing along slice of funk drama with very crisp delivery and story telling while "The Thief" takes us on much more of an Elton John style trip with galloping pianos, detailed phrases and a climax that seems to never end. Ja wohl.

Review: The Gene Dudley Group's debut album, Zambidoose, included one of the highlights of Summer 2015 - a righteous, brass-heavy funk cover of Todd Terje's nu-disco anthem "Inspector Norse". Here, other tracks from that set are given a new lease of life via three new remixes. Alexander Lay-Far kicks things off, subtly turning "Do The Cookie Dough Throw" into a righteous chunk of swinging, offbeat Latin house/funk fusion. In contrast, mixing desk maestro Wrongtom delivers a booming, bass-heavy dub reggae interpretation of "Tiger Jaw", while BJ Smith goes all warm, organic and Balearic on his invitingly sunny mix of "Jackpot", complete with dreamy vocals from Anne Frankenstein.

Review: The mysterious Bobby gets busy on Wah Wah's illicit white label bit on the side. Both cuts are instantly recognisable but the way the cover versions have been executed ensure buy-on-sight status. Coming on strong like a smooth-as-syrup Jamie Lidell, Beatsy strips back the elements on Bobby's Beatles take with rainbow vocal stretches and an on-point rolling dubwise groove. Bopperson provides an epic twist on Bobby's snake-like take on McFerrin's finest classic. One of a kind, jump on this one quickly.

Review: More Eddie Bo material in straight repress format from the Bo Sound vaults! It's another scorcher from 1970 right here, except that Eddie is joined by The Soul Finders across two parts of the majestic "We're Doing It (Thang)". The first cut is funky, laid-back and complete with a rolling guitar riff; the second joint sparks to life after a sublime entrance of broken percussion to form a deep and vibrant funk bomb with true grit.

Dusting off the long lost tapes with due care and attention, BBE have kindly reminded us that disco had much wider impact than the US and Europe. Nana Love's slightly nasal tones are instantly alluring, but it's the clam-tight musicianship that really bites. Big Bernard Edwards bass, shiny guitar twangs, extensive organ noodling and vibrant Afrofunk horns galore, this is a truly stunning document.

Review: Devilishly rare Philly soul funk from 75: Santiago were a Mandrill off-shoot headed up by Neftali Santiago, they only released one official single and it was rumoured to have only been pressed a few thousand times. Which is crazy considering how beautifully funky these originals are: "Feeling Good" lives up to its name with such positivity, harmony and soulful band orchestration (including some of the most beautiful jazz flutes of the era). "Land Of The Leaping No", meanwhile, is a raw carnal funk jam that's as sweet and sweaty as the original pressings are expensive.

Review: "Jungle" is the second batch of Numero-reissued gems by The Young Senators from the '60s; actually, we should really say that these are released for the first time ever. The song is a no nonsense Detroit slinger with one of the best breakdowns we've heard on the label. "That's The Way It Is" is a softer tune, a delicate 60's pop song guided by organs, horns and prophetic vocals. Bang tidy.

Review: If edits are your game then the Galaxy Sound Co is certainly the name. Along other labels like Mukatisuku, these dudes know how to repackage lost and rare soul 7"s, and this new two-headed funk bullet from Thelonious Gillespie is just painfully on target. The first edit is of "Soul Food" by Frankie Seay & The Soul Riders, a moody, dusty percussion bomb brimming with breaks and a grainy guitar accompanied by fine brass waves. Lyn Christopher's "Take Me With You" is pruned and reshaped into a glorious soul ballad with a hard edge, and a driving rhythm led by gliding electronic guitars and an inimitable bassline. Fine work right here.

Review: Two Gilles Peterson classics on one 7 inch !! As per usual, the unstoppable Mukatsuku delivers the undeliverable, and somehow the label boss Nik Weston has managed to license a pair of sought after tunes to find on the second-hand market. It's the second instalment of the Club Jazz series with this 45 a Hungary vs France sound clash.Hungary easily wins this one thanks to the sublime rhythm that is "Bamba" by Dimenzio, an inimitable jazz-dance leviathan that manages to mash-up all the right elements of jazz together with something a little weirder and electronic - a truly supreme piece of music that is recommended to ANYONE. Marius Culter's "Diamant" is a high calibre jazz funk missile, and works beautifully as a stand-alone, but its somewhat swamped by the sheer quality of its counterpart. Recommended. As played by Dean Rudland, Mr Thing, Ashely Beedle, Faze Action,Red Greg,Scrimshire,Frank Booker,Nancy Noise and Pete from On The Corner Records etc

Review: 1983's Rive Gauche by Philippe Chany has been lost in the depths of time and, until now, many greedy second-hand sharks have been keeping its price way up high. This little synth-pop marvel is a sampler's dream, containing beautiful riffs here and there, and what is most alluring about it is its total detachment from any one genre. In fact, there are noticeable touches of all things Balearic in here, and many of its tunes could the perfect accompaniment to disco, boogie or even expansive DJ sets. With a little subtle nod to funk, Chany's album is one of those veritable one-offs, the sort of albums that are in a category of their own. A stunning reissue, once again, by Dark Entries.

Drenched in sweat, heaving horns, wah wahs that go on for miles and a real fuzzy, heads down groove, this has caused frenzies on dancefloors for decades... Especially "Part 2" with its lavish naked drum break that clocks over one minute of creative mix (or sampling) bliss.

Review: They say great things come in pairs, and this is certainly true for these two new Sofrito bombs. However, unlike its companion, SSS016 is more of a boogie monster, and Gordon Henderson's "The Highest Bidder" is a tune that is just so easily hummed thanks to its inimitable vocal, while "Hard World" is more of a stone-cold floor-filler with its fast-paced groove and gritty electronic feel. Both unmissable, both total killers. No surprises here - Sofrito doing what the label does best.

The former is a soft, hazy disco tune, but the real stunner is the latter thanks to its utterly addictive bassline and instantly recognizable vocals softly shouting "uh uh". Masterful.

Review: Banda Black Rio were and still are an incredibly influential jazz-dance band from Brazil. Their three albums have been in any serious digger's back since then and, more recently, they've seen a renewed interest thanks to iconic British collectors and DJs such as Gilles Peterson and the rest of the London fusion crew. Maria Fumaca's tracks are the perfect balance between funk, jazz and disco, blending all three in one perfect shape for both the dancers and the armchair listeners. Tunes like "Na Baixa Do Sepateiro" focus on drums and hypnotic guitar solos, while others like "Caminho Da Roca" go deeper into the jazz end of the spectrum but still retain enough Brazilian tropical flare to make them an absolute pleasure on the dancefloors. A much recommended reissue, and one that would have cost you a fortune up until now. Mr Bongo in the place.
