Review: Gbubemi Amas is hardly Nigeria's most famous musical export. He began his career at the dawn of the 1980s, enjoying a certain level of success with debut album Grill. That set, reissued here for the first time since, was in many ways typical of developments in Nigerian popular music at the time. Amas was one of a new generation of artists moving away from the Afrobeat and Highlife styles that had dominated Lagos in the 1970s, instead laying down punchy, pop-tinged cuts heavily influenced by both American dance music (and in particular disco and boogie), and AOR rock. Highlights include the tasty disco-boogie of "Slow Down", the horn-heavy dancefloor sweetness of "For You", and the atmospheric synth-pop of closer "Listen".

Review: Top Nigerian psych rock from the Black Children Sledge Funk Group, and it seems like PMG Austria are really in it for the kill this week! The label have been putting out said reissues on a non-stop basis, and this little treasure from 1979 is the latest in line of what seems to be a tremendous string of releases. The band's third album, Vol.3: Aviation Grand Father, is soul, funk, and a little bit of early synth wizardry all wrapped up under one roof, and the results are wonderful. Now's your chance to cop it...

Review: Taking off where he left us on his Ubiquity albums, Whiskey Baron Bosq flies 1600 miles due south to Puerto Rico to work with a decorated troupe of local musicians and explore the island's sonic cauldron where calypso, Afrobeat, reggae and Latin all lick up a fiery furore. All wrapped up in Bosq's intoxicating dancefloor twist across the eight tracks we're hip-slinking to piano-stroking "Aquarembe", we're nodding and shaking to the sweet skanks of "San Jose 51", we're getting deep, down and slo-mo to the smouldering "Ron Blanco Con Coco" and whole load more. Vinyl only.

Review: James Brown's 44th album, Everybody's Doin' The Hustle & Dead On The Double Bump enjoys its first official vinyl reissue in decades and it remains every bit as funky and cool as it was when it was released 41 years ago. Beyond the usual suspects (the punchy lead title track and version of "Brand New Bag") there are some of JB's most criminally overlooked jams such as the laid back restraint on "Turn On The Heat And Build Some Fire" (which is ironically very cool) and the muted trumpet tooted jazzy adventures "Superbad & Superslick" and the almost bluegrass "Calm & Cool". Timeless soul magic.

Review: Soul On Top has always been one of James Brown's more surprising and under celebrated albums. It was released in 1970, at a time when the Godfather of Soul was at the peak of his powers. Yet while most of Brown's releases of the period showcased his thrusting brand of sexually charged funk, Soul On Top saw him cover jazz, soul and big band standards in the company of Louie Belson's 18-piece "jazz orchestra". While hardly revolutionary - unlike, say, many of his albums of the time - the combination of Brown's impassioned vocals and Oliver Nelson's swinging arrangements still sounds fantastic. The cover of Brown's own "Papa's Got A Brand New Bag" is particularly potent, and almost worth the admission price alone.

Review: Craig Charles' CD round-up of cuts that have done that business at his popular Funk & Soul Club events is becoming something of an annual tradition. This fourth volume in as many years is, predictably, stacked high with high quality fare. While there are plenty of straight-up funk and soul cuts - check The Traffic's killer cover of "White Lines", Brian Auger & The Trinity's 'Black Cat', and John Heartsman & Circles' tasty "Talking About My Baby", for starters - Charles's on-point selection also include nods to jazz-dance, Afro-funk, Latin beats, retro-futurist boogie-soul, and simmering torch songs (a sublime contribution from '80s star Lisa Stansfield).

Review: With crate digging partner Kon otherwise engaged producing in-demand disco edits, DJ Amir has kept himself busy. Here, he delves into his seemingly bottomless crates to put together a compilation of "rare music from across the Americas". Interestingly, much of the music - and, let's be honest, you won't be familiar with any of the featured artists - was recorded in New York during the 1960s and '70s, largely by immigrant musicians from Brazil, Cuba, Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic. That ensures a heady mixture of salsa, boogaloo, mambo, Latin-tinged funk and soul, rhumba, and Afro-Cuban jazz. In other words, it's a killer collection of lesser-known Latin gems. What's not to like?

Review: We've always been big fans of Delroy Edwards. But, we don't only rate his music; we love his attitude and the way in which he's gone about releasing material through his own LA Club Resource imprint. Whether it be grainy, maladjusted techno or noise and distorted juke, he has managed to build a concrete sound aesthetic for himself. Moreover, we love the fact that he's waited until now to drop his debut album instead of going in too early and risking to dilute his talents because of pressure from the scene of which he's part of, a scene which expects instant gratification and albums from the start. Hanging At The Beach has been described by Edwards himself as the most personal work he's done to date, and it truly sounds like the artist has space to play and get his mood across correctly throughout its thirty cuts. These range from his signature house sound, through to lo-Fi drum machine sketches and fine segments of power electronics. This one comes hugely recommended!

Review: Special Night, the second album from '70s soul survivor Lee Fields and the Truth & Soul Records house band, The Expressions, got rave reviews when it was released on CD earlier in the year. Now on vinyl for the first time, it sees Fields adding his sensational vocals to a string of classic sounding soul gems (think crackly, '60s style production and authentically raw instrumentation). Highlights come thick and fast, from the sensual, heartfelt "Special Night" and riotous funk workout "Work To Do", to the stripped-back, break-driven "How I Like It" and heart-breaking "Where Did Our Love Go". In other words, it's a revivalist soul treat.

Review: Durng the mid-to-late 1970s, the music scene in Nigeria was dominated by releases emerging from the recording studios of Lagos. Yet across in the Eastern city of Aba, groups who drew inspiration as much from American West Coast rock as the hard-edged funk of James Brown were making serious waves. Amongst these was the eight-piece Friimen Musik Company, whose obscure, 1978 album We Can Get It On has long been considered an overlooked classic. This first CD reissue confirms that its fusion charms - think Afro-funk meets Steely Dan via Boz Scaggs and early Bee Gees - have not been eroded by the passage of time.

Review: 1971's Maggot Brain is and always will be a timeless piece of work, not only because it was fundamental in instilling the funk sound of the following decade, but also because it went much deeper than many of the band's other albums; we consider it to be the group's finest work, spanning psychedelic rock and soul like no other music of its time. Led by the incorrigible George Clinton, the Parliament sister band were capable of turning even the straightest of styles into something continuously provocative; the lead track "Maggot Brain" is a blissful assortment of Hendrix-style riffing and raw electronic manipulation and, while the rest of the album heads down comparatively straighter genre types, the band always retain their inimitable freakiness, a distorted glow of organs, fuzzed-out guitars, and gospel choirs. A classic of the highest order, and an album which should reside in any serious record collection.

Review: There's been a trend in recent times to reissue previously hidden gems from around the world. It would be fair to say that Anatolian Break Dance, the first and only album from Turkish outfit Group Titan, comes under that category. It's undeniably odd, but also rather magical. As the title suggests, it was partly inspired by the break dancing craze of the '80s, and fuses drum machine electro rhythms and nifty synthesizer work with the kind of melodies and musical motifs more frequently found in traditional Persian music. While it's not all outstanding - occasional tracks feel a little like mid-80s hotel lift music - for the most part it's hugely entertaining.

Review: By the time he was asked to compose the music for Blaxploitation movie Shaft, Isaac Hayes had already established himself as a talent on the rise. While he'd enjoyed modest success as a session musician, producer and vocalist, it would be his score for Shaft - a triumphant blend of dancefloor-friendly funk and soul, evocative downtempo moments, sweeping orchestration and rich, intricately composed musicality - that would turn Hayes into an internationally recognized star. 45 years after it was first recorded, Shaft still sounds superb, as this weighty double vinyl reissue - complete with MP3 download code - neatly proves. If it's not in your record collection already, it should be.

Review: PMG reissue Kelenkye Band's Moving World LP. In 1974, Augustus Kerry Taylor gathered the hottest musicians in Ghana and recorded an album of the heaviest, funkiest, American influenced music. He designed the cover with Fela Kuti and even released it on his own label. Moving World according to PMG 'is a funky, disparate album that exudes a rare warmth, enthusiasm and togetherness.' Of the album, Accra's leading DJ, Charlie Sam declared his mind 'well and truly boggled.' Although the band was comprised of some of the city's finest musicians, they never recorded another album. Augustus Kerry Taylor shut down the label and went back to designing album covers. But on the Moving World LP, they delivered something that many recognise as a seminal moment in '70s Ghanaian groove.

The real heat, though, is on disc two, which gathers together 10 unmixed, full-length Krivit edits of superb TK cuts from Hokis Pokis, Jo Bisso, Jimmy McGriff and Betty Wright.

Review: Since its' release in 1981, this quirky debut album from Louis' Band - a short-lived studio outfit put together by arranger and producer Louis Vanni - has become a sought-after item amongst record collectors. Happily, Mondo Groove has decided to make it available digitally for the first time. It's an eccentric but hugely entertaining affair, featuring a range of tunes that variously touches on jazz-funk, AOR disco, flute-laden instrumental soul, synth-laden rock-and-roll revivalism, sax-laden sleaziness, and the kind of oddball, library music style fair that some may consider 'Balearic'. Given that original vinyl copies are hugely difficult to find, this digital edition is well worth picking up.
