  1. Do The Cookie Dough Throw (Lay Far remix) (5:35)
  2. Tiger Jaw (Wrongtom dub) (3:38)
  3. Jackpot (feat Anne Frankenstein - BJ Smith remix) (7:15)
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.

Young People (limited 7")

  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".

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.

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: 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.

  1. Special Night (part 1) (3:33)
  2. Special Night (part 2) (2:51)
Review: Veteran soul man Lee Fields has been touring and releasing music almost constantly since the late 1960s. In recent years, he's struck up a great partnership with the Truth & Soul label's house band, The Expressions. Their latest collaborative single, "Special Night", is something of a cinematic soul treat, with Fields wringing every bit of emotion out of his cracking, heartfelt vocal. The sumptuous A-side (subtitled 'Part 1') is joined on the flip by a sparser, stripped back version ('Part 2') that somehow manages to further emphasize the brilliance of Fields' lyrics and vocal. Both versions feel like future end-of-night classics.

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.

  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.

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!

  5. Gypsy Disco (5:55)
  6. Andromeda (5:11)
Review: Few re-edit minded imprints do it quite like Macadam Mambo. The French label is renowned for eschewing the tried-and-tested, instead asking its' contributors to deliver rearrangements of obscure, left-of-centre gems. This latest 12", from label co-founder Guillaume Des Bois, is packed with such eccentric treats. After beginning with the tactile, easy listening flutter of "Brightness (Intro)", Des Bois turns his attention to the crunchy, guitar-laden AOR disco funk of "Mambo Nassau". "El Chicanos" sees him tweak an organ solo-heavy chunk of acid-fried West Coast funk-rock, while the spiraling "Gypsy Disco" is a synthesizer-era, Balkan disco treat (and delightfully camp to boot). If that wasn't enough to set the pulse racing, he heads for outerspace with the intergalactic synths and undeniably cosmic grooves of "Andromeda".

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: 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.

  2. Intergalactic Love Song (alternate version) (4:48)
Review: From their only album The Agony & Extasy, Philly troupe The Diddys - led by Hammond doyen Charles England - took soul to some far-out places in 1977. "Intergalactic Love Song" is a fine example of their star-slurping skills. The original has a much more prominent vocal position, leaving the outer-planetary textures to form a clear-but-subtle bed while the alternate version has more of a persistent groove where the organs get a chance to really take off.

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.

  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.

Review: 1970s "Getting To The Middle" by Edwin 'Eddie' Joseph Bocage, or simply Eddie Bo, is one sublime EP in a sea of infinite soul releases from the New Orleans singer and composer. He was famous for his seductive vocal waves, but this particular single lies more on the funk end of the soul spectrum, and both parts 1 and 2 of the single instantly provoke that indescribable 'get down' feeling. Part 1 is for the party people and Part 2 is for the DJs, the latter leaving thing nice and instrumental.

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.

  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.

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.

Especially "Part 2" with its lavish naked drum break that clocks over one minute of creative mix (or sampling) bliss.

Review: Given that Cocktail D'Amore's first entry into the re-edit arena, CockRing D'Amore, landed almost a year ago, this follow-up is long overdue. Whereas that EP featured a trio of reworks from the extended family, both tracks on this solid 7" (snigger) come from Berlin-based DJ/producer Trent. He begins with the cheery European disco of "The Acrobat", where prominent horn lines rise and fall over slick funk guitars and shimmering strings. Flip for the cosmic disco-meets-cosmic rock masculinity of "The Fool", a killer fusion of elastic slap bass, eyes closed guitar solos and occasional blasts of glam rock vocals. Whip off your T-shirt and get to it (dancing, that is).

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.

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.

  2. Ike Turner & The Kings Of Rhythm - "Getting Nasty" (3:30)
Review: Originally released back in 1968, Freddie Scott's "(You) Got What I Need" is a US soul staple that went on to be sampled by late '80s rapper and beat boxer Biz Markie on his breakout track "Just A Friend." Scott's track came some five years into a successful singing career and featured production from celebrated duo Kenny Gamble and Leon Huff. It's paired up on this 7" with another track that was later popularised in hip hop, Ike & Tina Turner's "Get Nasty". Depending on your view of late '90s hip hop, you'll either fondly remember how Jurassic 5 sampled this track for "Concrete Schoolyard" or jolt at being reminded of Chali 2NA's somewhat grating vocal delivery.

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.

Review:  DJ Spinna is known for many things; his productions, sublime DJ mixes and many a hip hop classic as half of Jigmastas. He's also a complete Stevie Wonder obsessive who runs a popular Stevie-themed club night called Wonderful. A series of albums that expand on the party's concept was a logical next step and The Wonder Of Stevie now arrives at a third volume. This edition has clearly been painstakingly curated by Spinna and BBE, consisting of other people's covers of the man's work. Highlights include sweet and sugary 'Buttercup" by The Jackson 5, the bluesy honky tonk jam "It's My Pleasure" by Billy Preston and Quincy Jones' pure liquid funk version of "Betcha' Wouldn't Hurt Me".
