  1. Maria Fumaca (2:27)
  2. Mr Funky Samba (3:41)
Review: For the latest release on their on-point Brasil 45s sub-label, Mr Bongo takes a trip back to 1977, and the early days of legendary fusion outfit Banda Black Rio. Both the cuts here are taken from the band's brilliant debut album, Maria Fumaca, and see them fusing Brasilian samba and jazz sounds with the righteous, dancefloor-friendly grooves of funk and disco. "Maria Fumaca" itself is a deliciously sunny and sweaty affair, with punchy horns, eyes-closed guitar solos and jazz-funk electic piano lines rising above a carnival-ready samba-funk groove. The U.S funk influence comes to the fore more on flipside "Mr Funky Samba", which sounds like Azymuth jamming with members of the T.K Disco, Philadelphia International and Salsoul house bands. Yep, it's that good.

  1. Don't Go (feat Joe Quarteman) (4:00)
  2. Don't Go (instrumental) (4:01)
Review: Washington's Fort Knox Five have literally always been doing their thang. The quartet is made up of Sid Barcelona, Jon Horvath, Rob Myers and Steve Raskin, a collaboration of musicians who have given us a wonderful selection of music across many a genre. They've almost always appeared on their of Fort Knox label, so this new single for the Dinked imprint feels like a welcomed change in their releasing pattern. It's a one-track situation here, but "Don't Go" is a funk bomb capable of deconstructing any dancefloor form here to Detroit, and Joe Quarteman's zesty vocals are immediately hummable. Check that instrumental cut, too - pure, break joy!

Review: Tramp Records is one of Germany's tiniest (in their own words!) but funkiest labels who release new bands, but also re-issue quality rare funk, soul and jazz too. This time around they present us with City News for some truly authentic porn-funk soul vibes that you would honestly be convinced were from the early seventies in the vein of Hot Chocolate or Ramp like on the tremendous A side "Bustin' Up". On the flip we've got "Chan The Man" a kung-fu fightin' hoe down aboard the soul train express.

Review: Singer, songwriter, actor, legend: Roy Hytower's Doktu Rhute Muuzic project pays homage to his roots (literally - his father was a herb doctor) his beliefs and his pure skills. A story teller with a strong, smoky bluesy twang and wide range over two sides he paints a big picture; "I'm In Your Corner" has a great Stax style sleazy funk with its tight looseness and brilliantly timed horn section. "Tip Jar", meanwhile, is a much slower jam that rolls with a lolloping groove and a destitute tale that sucks you in with the similar techniques employed by the one and only Mr Brown. Yeah it's that good.

  1. The Fugitives/Archie - "Funky You" (2:18)
  2. The Fugitives/Scottie - "Love Come Down" (3:30)
Review: When it comes to reissuing vintage soul and funk, Germany's Tramp label is second to none. For them, a new week means a new beauty to reissue, and this particular week in October is no different; in fact, this magnetic little 7" is fabulous in every way. First up is 1971's "Funky You" by The Fugitives and Archie, a group who only released a handful of EPs under that moniker, but whose most famous tune is here for you to own, and cause serious levels of angst among the collectors (as you can imagine, the original is rather hard to find). On the flip, the same outfit team up with Scottie for a more classic, sensual love ballad called "Love Come Down", the sort of song which makes your head turn and spin to ask the DJ: "mate, what's that!?".

  1. Break Yo Self: Breakbeat Lenny Tribute (4:21)
  2. Break Yo Self: Breakbeat Lou Tribute (4:11)
Review: Dusty-fingered break-digger J Rocc can always be relied upon to deliver the goods, especially when it comes to the tasty Funky President Edits series. Informed by his impeccable turntablist skills, both versions of "Break Yo Self" offer a whirlwind trip through scorching, floor-friendly funk and rock breaks, with a wide range of classic and little-known samples thrown in for good measure. The A-side "Breakbeat Lenny Tribute" version begins with some Bob James style organ fluidity, before ramping up the energy levels via a string of killer drum hooks. If anything, the flipside "Breakbeat Lou Tribute" is even more party-friendly, with J-Rocc quickly running through almost everything in his box of tricks. In other words, it's a cut-up masterclass.

Review: Melbourne is home to one of the strongest funk revival scenes on the planet. Amongst the scene's heaviest hitters - in more than one sense - is drummer-turned-producer Ivan Kkatchoyan. Having been part of heavy funk combo Cookin' On 3 Burners since the dawn of the millennium, he's now the driving force behind Choi Records. His heavy funk rhythms and astute period production are at the heart of Mayfield's "On The Ropes", which also includes some stellar horns and - in its A-side form, at least - some on-point vocals from Carla Troiano. Like previous Choi releases by Traffic and Fulton Street, it's a revivalist funk treat.

  4. Like A Virgin (feat Rayla Sunshine) (5:12)
Review: German soul troupe Hi-Fly Orchestra let rip on a serious cover version session with four tightly sewn showdowns: Karl Frierson adds bounds of gutsy, gritty soul power as he takes care of the vocals on the turbo-soul take on Lenny Kravitz's "Let Love Rule" and the deep-swing vision of Marvin Gaye's "Let's Get It On". Flip for two deliciously dreamy takes with Rayla Sunshine as "Purple Rain" gets a super-swoon shine while "Like A Virgin" is given a jazz twist that's so immense you'll pinch yourself it's not the original and Madonna's is the cover.

  1. Pajaro (2:52)
  2. Tamborero (3:59)
  3. Frio Severo (3:21)
  4. Chimbita Theme (3:29)
Review: These days, it's hard to find contemporary artists making real, unadulterated psych-funk. Combo Chimbita are one such outfit; they're masters of their genre, and they have a real skill for amalgamating the best of South American and African rock. El Corredor De Jaguar comes out courtesy of Names You Can Trust, and its four sublime tunes are a true breath of fresh air among so much sub-standard, 70s rip-offs. "Pajaro" sets the scene with a cool, moody bass and intricate percussion knots, and "Tamborero" picks up the tempo and injects a glorious wave of Latino suaveness into the track's vocals. Our favourite piece has to be "Frio Severo", though, with its stepping drums and hummable guitar hook, but "Chimbita Theme" does a wonderful job of closing this stupendous 7" off with a wild and psychedelic infusion of guitars and tribal drumming. Highly recommended!

Review: It's been a decade since eight-piece outfit Brownout made their debut on Adrian Gibson's admirable Freestyle Records. Although they've never stopped recording - or touring, for that matter - this outing on Kept Records is their first release for two years. A-side "La Raza" is a breezy but bass-heavy affair, with multi-lingual rap vocals and tight turntable scratches riding a dubbed-out, funk-fuelled hip-hop groove. The band's long-held Latin influences come to the fore once more on flipside "Abrabeesh", which boasts some seriously tasty horn parts, fluid vibraphone solos and brilliant drum work. Both tracks are musically expansive, and amongst the best things they've done to date.

Review: The only time in the known universe when having your bike nicked is a good thing... Vancouver turntable champ Nick Bike returns on his own Chosen Spokes imprint with another beat bouquet. Armed with his now signature skill of taking well known classics, here we takes on two of the biggest possible tracks and rewires them for today's beat-hungry floors. James Brown goes under the knife as "I Feel Good" gets a sharp shuffle with full emphasis on the swing while the in-house backing band The Andantes version of Whitfield & Strong's Gaye classic gets a sultry twist. Complete with a beat version and DJ tools, Nick rides right into the heart of another sweet beat success.

Rolling with a real sense of momentum and cool drama, Fields and his troupe still have heaps of love to give. The feeling's mutual too.

  1. Banda Black Rio - "Miss Cheryl" (3:47)
  2. Miele - "Melo Do Tagarela (Rapper's Delight)" (instrumental) (4:10)
Review: Although Brazil's Banda Black Rio remain infamous for the albums that they recorded in the late 1970s, two beautiful LPs that rode that singular wave of samba-ridden jazz dance, 1980's "Miss Cheryl" is an outstanding tune, and we can hear why RCA picked it up back in the day. Mr Bongo provides us with the reissue here and, if you haven't heard it, it's an absolute delight which switches between disco, psych, and something inherently Brazilian - there's even a wacky synth in there, for good measure. Compatriot Miele appears on the flip with "Melo Do Tagarela (Rappers Delight)", a sublime slice of early, electronic boogie that sounds as fresh today as it did back at the tail end of the 70s. A devious little reissue that you should own...

  1. You Got It Right (2:35)
  2. Solar Blast (3:02)
Review: Misha Panfilov is a man of many talents. Not only is the Estonian producer an accomplished multi-instrumentalist, but he's also something of a sonic magpie. To date, his fuzzy musical output has included revivalist jazz-funk, space-age analogue electronica, and bossanova inspired easy listening. His core sound, though, remains funk, which he mostly explores on the Misha Panfilov Sound Combo releases. "You Got It Right" is typically psychedelic, with Panfilov peppering a low-slung groove with all manner of musical solos and Eastern-influenced chants. The hallucinatory dancefloor fun continues on the flip, where the constantly rising "Solar Blast" - all dusty analogue synths, wavy flute solos and killer funk breaks - cuts an impressively tipsy figure.

Review: The Agogo imprint is on fire as of late, delivering powerful , and consistently excellent, wave of funk and soul from every angle. This time its Savages Y Suefo who take the helm, three artists who know how to get down and dirty with beats; they've already appeared on the label several times before and, along with some other like-minded beat junkies, know exactly how to contribute to this wild and multi-faceted catalogue. "Revolution" is an all-out party tune, a funky little number with a wacky groove and Ashley Slater's rugged vocals to add the dance floor mood; Mr Bird's remix adds a little 4/4 flavour to the beats, injecting some more power to those kicks, and making this a total club bomb.

Review: Dam Funk and Nite Jewel first joined forces way back in 2009 for what most thought was a one-off collaboration. Here, they're reunited once more for their first joint 12" release. Nite-Funk is every bit as special as you'd expect, taking the best of both artists' musical repertoire - Dam Funk's authentic '80s synth-soul, and Nite-Funk's sparkling, deep analogue synth-pop - and turning them into something new and involving. The EP boasts vocal and instrumental versions of four tracks: the Michael Jackson style '80s soul-pop of "Let Me Be Me", the heartfelt, late night radio slow jam "Love X2", the sax-laden, Sade-goes-soulful house flex of "U Can Make Me", and the deliciously dreamy "Don't Play Games".

  1. Our Love Will Never Falter (2:38)
  2. From This Day On (2:40)
Review: Record Shack's latest on-point reissue comes from the sadly departed Edwin Bocage, better known to soul aficionados as Eddie Bo. Superb A-side "Our Love Will Never Falter" originally appeared on the obscure New Orleans imprint Blue Jay some time in the early-to-mid 1960s. It's a classic example of Louisiana soul from the period, with Bocage providing a headline-grabbing vocal performance over a horn-heavy, dancefloor-friendly backing track. Flipside "From This Day On" may be more of a heartfelt ballad in the classic soul mode, but it's similarly inspired. Copies of the original 1966 7" are pretty hard to come by these days - and, naturally, rather expensive - so don't miss this opportunity to own one of Bo's finest moments.

Review: Athens of the North: the epitome of a buy on sight label right now! This 7" dinker from Stephen Colebrooke being a case in point; both cuts on Shake Your Chic Behind originate from the stupidly rare album, Stephen, issued on Bahamas label G.B.I. Recording Co. Ltd back in the day. Instead of wasting time and money tracking that LP down, place your trust in AOTN and this 45 which picks out two highlights that will result in a delighted dancefloor. "Shake Your Chic Behind" is simply wonderful, a forgotten Islands disco classic touched with catchiness and personality - when that moog solo comes in... oh, my! On the flip, "Stay Away From Music" has a very Stevie Wonder feel to it and offers Colebrooke the chance to engage full croon mode.

Review: The US' Funk Night Records is pushing some serious heat as of late, especially given the fact that it's managing to find some real horsepower amid the contemporary generation of funk and soul - a rarity to be appreciated and recognised, these days. Bishop Smith is joined by The Sensational Disciples band to deliver "Bumps In The Road", a gloriously soulful song that gives new meaning to the term 'raw'; this might well be the most seductive piece of music we have heard this year and, if that sounds like an exaggeration, then you might just have to check it out for yourself. The instrumental, is naturally as wonderful, but the vocals on the A-side have the power to remain imprinted in your mind for days and days. This is very warmly recommended.

Review: The sounds of Johnny! have played a significant part in the popularity of afro beat over the last fifteen years. Quietly and tastefully, JJ Whitefield has been responsible for releasing a plethora of Ghanaian rock, including the country's most recent sensations, the incredibly talented Ebo Taylor. Since the 90s, this guys hasn't stopped releasing heat for a single minute, and his collaboration with Now Again has been one of the best and most consistent partnerships of the last decade. Along with Ebo Taylor, his on Henry, and percussionist-singer, Eric Owusu, Whitefield's Johnny! can do absolutely now wrong and, if this new single "Ago" is anything to go by, these guys are among the few making quality afro rock in the present day. The tune is rugged, lo-fi and a little hazy, bringing together elements of Zamrock and psych in the best possible way; there's also an instrumental for you on the flip.

Review: Bay City claim that between the 60s and 70s, the music scene "was so fertile that the speed with which tastes changed left a colossal amount of incredible music to gather dust - perhaps most famously a profusion of funk, soul and rock." This resulted in many local bands who released their music independently without a label. The rather short lived, James Brown indebted Chain were one of those bands. These impressive two tracks feature hard drums, sharp horns, raw vocals, and supercool guitar licks. And a whole lot of soul, of course!

Review: Serial alias addict, Kris Holmes returns with a double side of split personality: The Disciples is a rough, bluesy layered piece of slo-mo surf rock where the drums only just keep up and the organs provide heavy soul salvation. "He Spoke" shows Kris on much more of an African inspired trip. Similarly hefty organs power the main groove but there's more uplift in the riff and instrumentation. Insatiable.

These two new smokers for the Bastard Jazz imprint are pure class, every bit as sexy and seductive as we've come to expect from the producer, starting with the sultry claps and bass of the excellent "Im For Real", a sun-scorched killer of a tune, fit for riding shotgun and turing the rooftop down. On the flipside, Mr Carmack detunes "Stay The Night" down to a funky, mid-tempo level, and it's just about the grooviest of boogie tracks that we've heard in a while. Think Daft Punk meets Willie Hutch. Wonderful.

  6. Bogangar (Paprika Mountain Air Afro dub) (7:07)
Review: Flash your trash cans, the KCs have returned in remix form. Dusting off their second album Trash Or Treasure for others to have a play in the jazzy muck, they enjoy a whole range of recycles. Highlights include Sampology adding a warm thump and loopy twist to "Strawberry Fields" (while keeping the sitar shining), Two Dee switching up "Rabbit Hole" into a Miami bass style breakbeat serving session and the misty, spooked out wooden leg skank on "Kojak The Frog". Mystical, faithful, moorish.

  5. Trust Me (3:24)
  6. Dance Awhile (3:24)
Review: Not just a beautiful compliment to pay someone special, but a hugely influential record that inspired Floating Points' now legendary Plastic People parties, too... A super obscure and expensive one at that. Now re-issued on Floating Points' own Melodies imprint - across three 45s - the Detroit band get full exposure with the deliciously funky main track enjoying two versions before dipping into the softer, more pastoral charms of "I Feel Like Dancing" and the string-led swoon festival, "Theme For Someone Special". We close on two contrasting grooves; an earthy ballad ("Trust Me") and a Whitfield & Strong style funk instrumental ("Dance Awhile"). Cheers Sam!

Cat: PH 45009. Rel: 14 Nov 16
  1. Mam Yinne Wa (3:58)
  2. Yu Ya Yumma (3:24)
Review: Frafra gospel artist Alogte Oho was rumoured to be a leading artist within the 'explosive' music scene of Bolgatanga, in Northern Ghana. His debut release "Zota Yinne" in 2014 has already become a collectors item. On this release, Oho is joined by the all female choir group Sounds of Joy, comprised of Lizzy Amaliyenga, Patricia Adongo and Florence Adooni. On the A side, we have the uplifting and soulful vibes of "Mam Yinne Wa" featuring some wonderful wind and string instrument passages. On the flip is the reggae influenced swagger of "Yu Ya Yumma".

  1. Etta James - "Seven Day Fool" (3:00)
  2. Doug Banks - "I Just Kept On Dancing" (2:33)
Review: Soul Tribe celebrate the epic legacy of Chess subsidiary Argo with two of the label's many outstanding soul burners. Etta's big swing sauce-pot number takes pride of place with all 55 years of sultry devotion still deeply embedded into the recording. Banks' slightly lesser known pastoral ballad sets up camp on the B. Lilting and lolloping with horseback storytelling, it's the perfect foil both musically and narratively.

Be What You Wanna Be (7" limited to 300 copies)
Cat: BH 104. Rel: 21 Nov 16
  1. Be What You Wanna Be (4:22)
  2. Soul Party Tune (3:29)
Review: Djar One returns to his Beats House imprint with a 7" that's as funky and groovy as the label's name; a natural home to puristic breakbeat madness that you'll find hard to get from anywhere else. "Be What You Wanna Be" is fast, full of life and percussive swing, and successfully manages to blend the best elements of soul and hip-hop together under one funky roof. "Soul Party Tune", the banger residing on the flipside, has a more West-coast approach, bringing in a noticeable layer of surf rock to truly mash things up good and proper. This is an EP of those wishing to dish out a tune and get the whole place moving...
