Vladimir's Groove (limited 7")
Cat: SP45 001. Rel: 16 May 16
  1. Vladimir's Groove (3:41)
  2. Igor's Groove (3:13)
Review: Come on, its 2016, of course there are soul bands from Russia. More specifically, there's soul bands from Russia that make absolutely incredible music, and The Soul Surfers are one of them. They've been busy over the last 6-7 years, and the Spasibo label have been instrumental in getting their sound across to the masses. "Vladimir's Groove" is deep, funky and wet, filled with an awesome slap-back bass, a trippy cascade of organs and just a general feeling of "yeah". "Igor's Groove" is slower, more laid-back and possibly even better and bolder, bringing out the best out of this band and solidifying them as serious contenders for best soul kings of the post 2000's. A band to watch - keep 'em peeled!

Journey To The Shore (limited white label 12")

  1. Tasty Tune (7:10)
  2. Live (5:03)
Review: Yes, yes, yes! People's Potential Unlimited come through with a timely new white label edition of Minority Band's Tasty Tune 12" which was one of the very first releases from the DC archivalists back in 2009!! Both tracks on this 12" originate from the sole record Jersey Shore act Minority Band released at the time they were active, the Journey To The Shore LP issued on local New Jersey label JSR Records back in 1980. It goes without saying finding that LP is akin to stumbling upon gold dust, so let's make do with this 12" which PPU state features two of the best cuts. Prime Jersey Shore boogie.

  4. Loneliness
Review: Rare funk and soul connoisseurs Athens Of The North uncover four gems from one of the most interesting men in funk history. The man behind "Funky Nassau", Raphael Munnings really should have had a much bigger career than he did. Fortunately AOTN have recovered these four near-misses to ensure they're big hits for us... From the warm horns and Bahaman lilt of "Opportunity Knocking" to the organ and guitar heavy "Sleep On, Dream On" (think Booker T meets Hendrix) via the Gaye-style funk soul vibrancy of "Takin You Higher" this is a very special selection that pays respect to an unsung hero.

Bembeya Latin Strut (limited 7")
Cat: SG 035. Rel: 16 May 16
  1. Bembeya Latin Strut (4:53)
  2. Dope Walk Slow Talk (5:09)
Review: Japan's super-prolific Soul Garden take an Afro-Cuban diversion for their latest release with one of the country's leading Afro-jazz troupes Bembe. The band - led by Yusuje Asano - have a reputation as a live act that is second to none but their releases aren't quite as prolific as their touring schedule. Last spotted on Hiroko Otsuka's Piece The Next mix last year, this is their first Soul Garden 45" and it's highly advisable you jump on it... "Bemeya Latin Strut" is a densely weaved jazz workout with elements at delicately balanced odds. "Dope Walk Slow Talk" is a much more sedate affair as the sax whips up a fire over a smouldering reggae beat. Dope indeed.

Cat: EAS 011. Rel: 20 Jun 16
  1. At The Mercy Of Inertia (3:50)

  3. Sinergie (4:45)
  4. Ad Libitum (5:23)
  5. Southwind (4:57)
  6. Notturno Distopico (2:11)
Review: Periplo marks the solo debut of Early Sounds Recordings co-founder Pellegrino S. Snichelotto, following occasional contributions to other material from the label's extended family of artists. Interestingly, the six-track set shares some stylistic similarities with friends' Nu Guinea's Tony Allen Experiments mini-album, chiefly the producer's delay and reverb-laden fusion of live instruments and vintage analogue hardware. Stylistically, most of the tracks sit somewhere between jazz-funk, cosmic funk, and the kind of melodious Afro-Cosmic fare that was once a staple of Northern Italy's eccentric club scene. There's plenty of hazy musical humidity to enoy, too, with the impeccable "Ad Libitum" standing out.

  1. Vamp Oakland (2:54)
  2. Ray Ban (3:21)
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".

  2. Run, Don't Walk Away (part 2) (3:09)
Review: Classic Soul styles from Detroit ensemble Will Sessions pressed up on authentic dinked 45! Run Don't Walk Away finds the Sam Beaubien-led band working once more with vocalist Coco, and if you picked up Boss Lady, that 2013 funk jammer they previously collaborated on, you will be all over this like a bad suit. Coco takes centre stage here, her heart-wrenchingingly soulful vocals leading the way whilst the Will Sessions gang beat out an instrumental groove you'd be hard pressed to separate from the JBs finest.

  2. Cruisin' (3:55)
Review: Following their two-part "Rap It Together" 45" with Will Sessions earlier this year, Russian funkateers The Soul Surfers return with two more blistering originals. Continuing their Booker T-edged signature, both instrumentals are well polished, smooth and perfectly Hammond-balanced. "Odd Love" is the more upbeat, dancefloor minded track while "Cruisin'" takes us up to lover's lane for an intimate session that doesn't disappoint.

  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.

Heartbreaker (limited white vinyl 7")

  1. Heartbreaker (5:26)
  2. Do It 4 U (3:33)
Review: Austin Boogie Crew Records return with a fourth release, turning to San Francisco's foremost exponents of modern funk, Starship Connection. Starship members B.Bravo & Teeko have been leading the scene for years and the Intergalactic Funkateers arrive on Austin Boogie Crew brandishing a deadly modern funk cover of Zapp classic "Heartbreaker." Recorded and released digitally last year to pay homage to talkbox don Roger Troutman on the 16th anniversary of his passing, the cut now makes the overdue transfer to 45 and sounds all the better for it. Driven by talkbox harmonies, cracking drums, thumping bass, and slick halftime break downs, Starship puts their signature twist on a classic. Complementing this, the Starship Connection lay a sweet and soulful exclusive on the flip in the shape of "Do It For U."

  1. Listen (3:18)
  2. Party (3:16)
Review: When you talk about 'kid funk', it's always long-lost B-sides that record collectors talk about like myths. But, Athens Of the North have managed to get their hands on the masters of a super-rare Virtue 7" that goes for no less that L1000 on the second-hand market in its original form. "Listen" is a deep, sublimely odd little funk tune that is as deep as you can get for boogie and funk; "Party" on the flip is no less of a gem, backed by Little George's supreme vocals and a tight little break, too. Sick.

  2. JR (3:09)
Review: In a week where there's been a veritable flood of vinyl-shaped goodness from Athens Of The North, this 7" stood out still. Look up the meaning of Deep Funk online and the smarter cookies will have this New World 7", The World Today, listed as a prime example; a huge cut for the master Keb Darge back at the turn of the 21st century and a very record whose original copies trade hands for silly money. Recorded and released back in 1974 for Frank Virtue's Philly label Virtue Records, both cuts from the 7" have been kindly licensed to Athens Of The North by the man's daughters. Form an orderly queue, thank the Virtues, thank DJ Fryer, and cherish this gem of a deep funk 7!

  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.

  2. I'm Your Boogie Man (Todd Terje edit) (4:43)
Review: One of two sun-kissed KC excursions from the mighty Todd Terje for RSD, here we find him dissecting the horn-blasting feel-good 1976 strutter "I'm Your Boogie Man". Stripping the feels right back to the tight guitar and bass spine then redressing it slowly with each silky element, he's switched the concentrated party into a dramatic precession where every aspect gets its own place on the red carpeted groove.

Review: Afro 45's / Mr Bongo show no signs of stopping their tireless run of form and, 7" after 7", they just keep on producing the goods. There's yet more '70s goodness with this new little scorcher: the A-side is 1973's "Tessassategn Eko" by Bahta Gebre Hiwot, a pensive Ethiopian pop hit for all sorts of music fans to enjoy, but "Ayalqem Tedqem" by Alemayehu Eshete on the B-side is where it's at... just listen to that bass and you'll instantly recognize this wonderful little cover.

  1. Just Me & You (4:44)
  2. Your Love Is My Desire (4:44)
Review: Having appeared on several EPs throughout the late '70s and early '80s on labels like Westbound and Capitol, most people think of Erasmus Hall as one person. Rather, they were actually a collective of artists that were given the name by grandmaster George Clinton of Parliament / P-Funk. This might not be immediately audible on the gentle waves of "Just Me & You", but the song does contain a certain air of oddity and conniving funkiness that rendered that period of disco just so damn enticing. The flip contains "Your Love Is My Desire", another gentle heart-warmer to stick on in those more intimate moments... What a delightful little 7"!

Review: Serious Japanese Steel editry from Kazahaya: "Miracles" takes two recordings of the classic "I Believe In Miracles" (Mark Capanni and the Jackson Sisters) and deftly plays between the two to incredible effect with some really cool double-ups on the fills. Flip for a twist on a classic immortalised by Marlena Shaw where a thumping northern soul kickdrum drives us wild beneath the big orchestration. No messing around here.

Review: Wanna hear the Isley Brothers classic "It's Your Thing" given a Latin shakedown? Mr Bongos have got you covered on the latest 7" in their splendid Latin 45s series! Originally issued back in 1974 on TR Records, this Los Africanos cover is a rum heavy Nu Yorican funk-soul instrumental featuring screaming Hammond organ and FX. It's very expensive in original form now, so shout outs to Mr Bongos for pressing it up here along with an equally good 1968 cover of instrumental, boogaloo version of Eddie Floyd's all-time classic "Knock On Wood" from Machito & His Afro-Cubans.

Review: Hamburg's Bacao Rhythm & Steel Band are as enigmatic and alluring as when they released their first single back in 2007, a tidy funk 7" that was to set the scene for a very particular sort of instrumental sound. "Jungle Fever", out on their own excellent Big Crown imprint, is a 2015 single that is truly hard not to play on repeat; the tune is a delicate yet funked-out blend of raw drums and tropical steel melodies, much like the name of the band already implies! The flipside "Tender Trap" is more broken and loose in its arrangement, something that makes it perhaps even more catchy and provocative than the title track.

  2. Woman Of The Ghetto (instrumental) (3:11)
Review: When you hear people talk about 'boogie', it's largely thanks to the music that resides on the catalogue of the SAM label, some to some of the most blazing electro-disco bangers from the '80s. Standing undisputed as one of the founding labels for the genre, Doris Duke's cover of Marlena Shaw's "Woman Of The Ghetto" is the perfect balance between soul and something else, something murkier, deeper, with a more electronic edge. Both the vocal and the instrumental cuts are serious weapons for any dance floor, and although they might be relatively slower compared to other SAM joints, they're still as sexy as hell...
