The Bottle (limited 7")
Cat: WT 3001. Rel: 20 Jun 16
  1. The Bottle (4:35)
  2. One Foot Before The Other (3:11)
Review: Long-standing gospel singer Lewis returns on new label Wheelstown with two big-vision slabs of soul. "The Bottle" takes Gil Scott Heron to more upbeat, technicolour places while Pat's delivery retains the original sobriety and sentiment. "One Foot Before The Other" snaps us back to the Motown legacy with big backing harmonies, full orchestration and a subtle-but-present northern soul stomp. Genuine.

  1. Toxic (3:24)
  2. I Kissed A Girl (3:34)
Review: Previously spotted on Acid Jazz beating Duffy at her own game, London northern soul troupe The Third Degree return with two superfluous covers. Britney's "Toxic" gets sweaty flip with enough horn power to make Ronson blush. Flip for smoother twist on Katy Perry's "I Kissed A Girl" delivered with a swinging revue style polish. Cover versions were invented for versions like this.

  1. Bobby's Body (Beatsy Collins remix) (3:24)
  2. Bobby's Love (Boppersons To Me To You remix) (4:10)
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.

  1. Airto Moreira - "Celebration Suite" (4:22)
  2. Gilberto Gil - "Maracatu Atomico" (4:22)
Review: Timed to coincide with the upcoming 2016 Olympics in Rio, the $tateside label comes through with a 7"-shaped celebration of Brazilian music featuring two classic cuts from the archives of Airto Moreira and Gilberto Gil. 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!

  1. Hey What's That You Say (3:23)
  2. Always There (5:23)
Review: 40 years young: Wood, Brass & Steel's eponymous debut album enjoys a highly timely reissue and it still sounds every bit as funky ("Theme Song"), soulful ("Working On A Dream") and emotional ("My Darling Baby") as it did in 76. Complete with cult dancefloor hit "Funkanova" and the crossover disco hit "Always There", this LP has aged with real maturity and clout. Considering what the members did next (Tackheads, Sugarhill and Fats Comet) Wood, Brass & Steel was something of a supergroup in hindsight... And this album is where it all began.

  1. Claudette & Ti Pierre - "Zanmi Camarade" (Tropical Treats edit)
  2. Ti Marcel - "Nan Point La Vie" (Siwo version)
  3. Ibo Combo - "Mateau"
  4. Les Lups Noirs - "Pile Ou Face"
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.

Cat: SOFRITO 001. Rel: 01 Aug 16
  1. Teaspoon & The Waves - "Oh Yeh Soweto"
  2. Teaspoon & The Waves - "Friday Night Special" (Sofrito vs Kilombo edit)
  3. Nzimande Allstars - "Highway Sporo Disco" (edit)
Review: Repress of the debut Sofrito Super Singles which celebrates the Afro-disco and boogie scene of South Africa, - where Salsoul meets Soweto. Comes housed in a new look Sofrito house sleeve. The three track EP features Teaspoon & The Waves - led by veteran alto player Teaspoon Ndelu. They released one album in 1980, covering a mix of disco and funk sounds for the SA dancefloors. Oh yeh Soweto is a cheeky version of Lamont Dozier's Going Back To My Roots - changing the lyrics and toughening up the beats, but with the same killer riffs. Saturday Night Special is from the same LP, a spaced out Afro Disco groove with excellent percussion and psychedelic synths, re-edited by the Sofrito team. The B side features a track by the Nzimande Allstars - another mysterious group of session musicians. The drawn out groove of Highway Sporo Disco fuses a heavy disco backing with jive guitar and stellar horns and organ for a unique taste of the underground sound of the Cape.

  1. Kind & Kinky Zoo - "Wonder Zebra" (3:03)
  2. Kind & Kinky Zoo/Adam Gibbons - "VLAM" (Lack Of Afro remix) (3:12)
Review: It's more chilly, worldly outsider jazz gear from Barcelona's excellent Rocafort imprint; this time the crew return with the one-man show Kind & Kinky Zoo alongside Adam Gibbons, both making their debut for the label with this smart two-tracker. "Wonder Bra" is a solo mission from K&KZ, a fast-paced drum locomotive with plenty of whistling organs flying around in the high-ends, while Lack Of Afro's remix of "VLAM" by K&KZ and Adam Gibbons is a funkier, more laid-back swinger for a bit of one, two, three four on the dancefloor. Tidy 7" for the soul lovers!

  1. Highway To Heathen (8:38)
  2. For Heathen's Sake (6:21)
  3. He Touched Me (6:22)
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.

  1. COOL Band - "Jam 1" (3:34)
  2. Manzanem - "Don't Interupt" (3:59)
Review: While a lot of PPU's time is spent unearthing, reviving and liberating classic boogie, disco, funk and soul from the 80s and 90s, it's also home to troves of authentic grooves tailored in contemporary times... And long-standing label fam Benedek is one of the most consistent forces behind it all. The excellently titled C.O.O.L Band and Manzanem are two of his latest guises; the former is a real Sunday afternoon lazy vibe, like an electro boogie record on at half speed with thundering weight on the powerful kicks while the latter takes us deeper into the late 80s with a Mr Fingers' style trip into primordial house music. Pure synth odysseys, the pair of them.

  1. Saturday Night (3:26)
  2. More Than Enough (4:31)
Review: Conceptual funk in a technical sense: legend has it, during the late 70s Andre Gibson's band offered their skills to Columbia College so audio engineering students could practice their studio and recording skills while the band enjoyed a free place to play, develop and rehearse in return. The recordings were never release... Until last year when Numero Group put out a full eponymous album that ranged from boogie to rare groove to disco soul. Now come two more originals; soft disco funk "Saturday Night" is driven by an afro-beaty groove and salubrious slap bass while "More Than Enough" struts with more of an early 80s Average White Band style vibe with just the right whiff of yacht in the air.

  1. Jungle (3:27)
  2. That's The Way It Is (3:20)
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.

  1. Ringing Bells (Sweet Music) (part 1) (2:52)
  2. Ringing Bells (Sweet Music) (part 2) (2:56)
Review: The Young Senators released two EP's back in 1976: one called Boogie Time, and another called Ride The Tide. The sound was laid-back, sleazy and full of that boogie slack, but another single of there's called "Ringing Bells" was never released... until now, that is, and courtesy of the unstoppable Numero Group. "Ringing Bells (Sweet Music)" is a classic Detroit soul banger, deep and spacious but fast-paced and built for the dance. "Ringing Bells (Sweet Music) Part 2" is where things really start to get hypnotic - the song is a percussive, psyched-out continuation of the original, and it's one of the best soul B-sides we've heard in a while. Warmly recommended.

  2. Wallace Brothers - "What Cha Feel Is What Cha Get"
Review: Originally out on the Practice What You Preach album from 1993, "The Plan" by German funkateers Poets of Rhythm has never been pressed up as a single, but has always remained much sought-after by the funk heads, and why wouldn't it be? It's got it all: a James Brown kind of sleaziness backed by a jump-up groove and a sliding set of organs. Wallace Brothers feature on the flip, with the rare funk blazer by the name of "What Cha Feel Is What Cha Get", a rare floor-dominator now available for your turntable. Records are your friends, Mukatsuku leads the way! As played by Mr Thing,Snowboy,Dean Rudland,Smoov etc

  4. SoulBrigada - "Madera" (4:05)
Review: New vinyl-only label Matasuna Records enters the fray with a stated focus on reworks of rare & forgotten music treasures from all over the world. The debut release, a 12" featuring four DJ-friendly edits from Voodoocuts and SoulBrigada sets the tone and has a fine titular pun to boot in Afreaka! Voodoocuts takes the A-side duties, pairing up the raw '70s Ivory Coast funk of "Kelja" with the steamy Latin styles of "Tortoise Loops". Those wanting something a bit more disco in sound will gravitate towards the "Hustleman" edit from SoulBrigada which originates from West Africa and has a killer horn line!!! "Madera" sees SoulBrigada look to Cape Verde for source material and features some subtle additions.

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.

Review: After releases on Goodgroove and Riddim Fruit, The Allergies, aka Bristol nu-funk duo DJ Moneyshot and Rackabeat, found a welcome home in Jalapeno for their debut album, As We Do Our Thing, which was released earlier this year. Vinyl fans sore at the lack of the album in their preferred format will find consolation in the fact two gleaming highlights now feature on this 45 for Jalapeno. Up top, the smart soul sampling and tight breakbeat patterns of "Love's Supposed To Be" represent all that is good about the party-starting style of The Allergies, whilst "As We Do Our Thing" is a more midtempo horn funker.

Review: It's been a few years since New Zealand soul spaceman pecked our decks on the cheek but he's back and he's packing kindred company Zackey Force Funk for a more angular, woozy cosmic funk message than before. "Space Bitch" tells a tale all self-respecting intergalactic pimp can relate to as it lollops along over loose drums, a grumpy bassline and hazy chords. "Stimulant" is a much drowsier, somnambulant affair with its warped electro-at-half-speed tones and eerie whispers and whistles. Barbed, far-out but ultimately beautiful.

Review: The closing salvo of premium funk from Lyn's seminal, historical Think album, both "We Want To Party Party Party" and "You Can't Beat Two People In Love" are stamped with James Brown's magic. The former lives up to its (thrice) with street hollers and a relaxed but super-tight horn-led groove. The latter throws back to JB's earlier soul creations with rich yearning emotion in the vocals and deep blues in the groove. Two fine reminders that Lyn gave the world much more than one of the most famous breaks.

Review: San Fran instrumental soul and funk quartet The M Tet consist of guitarist Joe Baer Magnant, Hammond organ player Gary Pitman, drummer Michael Reed and Chris Lujan on Fender bass. Their brand of organ-based RnB with loving nods to the likes of The Meters and Booker T & The M.G.'s has surfaced on a small clutch of 45s for US funk labels these past few years and there is more to check on The M Tet bandcamp! After debuting on Funk Night with a killer instrumental funk rendition of "Express Yourself" last year, The M Tet are back on Frank Raines' label with another dinked display of goodness for the mind, body and soul. Up top "Vamp Oakland" is a delightful funk strut that sees Pitman's Hammond playing tee off against the tight drums of Reed. Down below it's the supple funk bassline from Lujan that really gets into your hips on "Ray Ban".
