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!

You Got It Right/Solar Blast

  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: Jalapeno's northern funkers Smoove & Turrell gear up for their fourth studio album Crowd Posada with two superlative songs that at once demonstrate their range and innate soul ability. "Could Have Been A Lady" has a deep bluesy rock twang to its groove with just a toe or two in the pub while the curiously titled "Glue Bag Flags" takes us on a much sleazier trip with samples, a slinky bassline, a perfectly executed vocal Q&A and a zero-to-sixty tempo switch when you least expect it. Bring on the album.

  1. You (4:46)
  2. Space V (4:18)
Review: Christopher Sprains and The Strange Band recorded a whole heap of material in a hazy, drug-fuelled 19178, but their - surprisingly - never gained enough traction with the NYC disco crowd. Perhaps this work was too ahead of its time and, while it does share some qualities with the music of Rick James, it contains something dark, sexy, a little bit twisted and, of course, strange. The lead track "You" is a synth-heavy, electrifying boogie cut with a rugged percussion swing and an air of post-punk to its mix down, not to mention those utterly freaky vocals; our favourite, though, is actually "Space V", an insanely nutty electro cut that would have undoubtedly been on The Electrifying Mojo's playlist should it have landed on his lap. Totally recommended...

  1. Mavis John - "Use My Body" (Nik Weston official exclusive edit)
  2. G Benton & Nik Weston - "Riviera Jam" (Tropical Storm Steel Panapella mix)
Review: Juno exclusive Mukatsuku Records official repress on white vinyl and new labels to 300 hand-numbered copies.1980's "Use My Body" by Mavis John is a highly coveted piece of exotic funk, the sort of tune your eyeballs pop out to when you find it in a second-hand bin in some dark basement. However, we live in the real world and that stuff doesn't happen; what does happen is the Mukatsuku label saving you the trouble and reissuing it. Label boss Nik Weston gives his own edit of the tune here, and he transforms an already wonderful piece of soulful dance into an even more powerful DJ weapon - it's an absolute stunner and you can tell why the original has been picking up 3 figures on the second hand market. On the B-side, Weston teams up with Benton for a steel-pan excursion called "Riviera Jam (Tropical Storm Steel Panpella mix)", a superb addition to this beast of a 7".

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.

  1. Vetson Androy - "Mavandeza" (3:55)
  2. Joajoby - "Tarantasy Maitso" (3:30)
Review: You can rely on the Sofrito label to unearth the most daring of dance music from the most obscure corners of the earth. This latest instalment lands on Madagascar's shores, a stunning landscape with relatively little known about its music from the typical Westerner; as usual, though, we are pleasantly surprised by what we discover on this totally killer two-tracker. The sound is called Salegy, a style originating from the island's North-Western quarters, and that evokes fast 6/8 rhythms accompanied by steely percussion folds and tribalistic chanting: "Mavandeza" is a deep and mystical song performed by the Vetson Androy outfit, who were famous proponents of the sound at the height of its popularity in 1978. The B-side is from tenders later, and Joajoby's "Tarantasy Maitso" is another glorious slice of vocal-led percussion in the island's loose and spiritual style. Unmissable.

  1. Shake Your Chic Behind (3:11)
  2. Stay Away From Music (4:06)
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: 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.

  1. Revolution (4:04)
  2. Revolution (Mr Bird remix) (3:42)
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.

  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.

  1. Open Your Heart (part 1) (2:40)
  2. Satisfactorize Your Mind (2:45)
Review: The work of obscure, conscious funk outfit Africano has previously proved popular with reissue labels, in part due to the rare nature of their original 1970s releases. This limited 7" single features two of their finest tracks: the fairly well known "Open Your Heart", and 1973's "Satisfactorize Your Mind". While the latter is a string-drenched treat that feels like a dustier, slightly more psychedelic take on the Philadelphia International sound, it's "Open Your Heart" that most impresses. Featuring urgent, passionate vocals, winding horn lines and a stomping funk-soul beat, it remains the outfit's finest moment bar none.

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.

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".

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...

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.

Review: The latest artist to join Dinked's roster of soul and funk obsessives is DJ D.S.K, a China-based Brit who grew up cutting and scratching hip-hop and old funk breaks. The three tracks showcased here seem to be built around samples from tasty old funk bombs, from cut-up and rearranged breaks, to punchy horn lines and low-slung basslines. Lead cut "Lamine" is particularly potent, featuring as it does DJ-friendly drum breaks, jangling soul guitars, rubbery bass and a floor-friendly rhythm track. Flip for the looser, electric piano-heavy dancefloor strut of "Police Woman", and the dusty, head-nodding, trumpet-laden hip-hop bounce of "Kumming Beats" (and, yes, it's a sneaky cut-up of an old James Brown tune).

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.

Supamomo Jay Airiness takes the B for two equally XL party-sized joints: "Funky Situation" is a total carnival of percussion and slapbass magic while "Two Of Us" is all about the bumper-busting disco funk. Divine.

In Loving Memory (hand-numbered 7" limited to 250 copies)
Cat: FNR 063. Rel: 14 Nov 16
  1. The Disciples - "In Loving Memory" (3:03)
  2. All Nations Quartet - "He Spoke" (3:02)
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.

Cat: ROC 015. Rel: 10 Oct 16
  1. If You Want My Love (3:59)
  2. Get Down With The Get Down (3:23)
Review: Pure boogaloo gold: Melvin's rich repertoire is loaded with gems, but his collaborative fusions with Jimmy Scott on his fifth album Melvin Sparks '75 are some of the most distinctive and unique. "If You Want My Love" was way ahead of its time with its staccato synth hits and textures buried deep behind the emphatic vocal power and almost hip-hop style groove. Flip for "Get Down With The Get Down" that builds and builds and builds with such ease and natural rhythm there's a strong chance you'll get lost inside it every time. Search party not included.

  1. I'm In Your Corner (feat Roy Hytower) (2:49)
  2. Tip Jar (feat Roy Hytower) (4:20)
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.

  2. Stay The Night (Mr Carmack remix) (3:55)
Review: Adam Mori aka B.Bravo is back like a thick gush of smoke filling up the dance floor, and the Brownswood-Bleep associate is in no mood to wait till the warm up set is done. 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.

  1. I Feel Free (2:26)
  2. Growler (2:43)
Review: With their first 45 selling out in under one week, Bristol troupe Mohawkestra are doing all the right things in all the right places. Especially our ears. Now loading up their second funk 45 bullet, it's likely to be just as successful... Big Hammond-led funk all the way, "I Feel Free" has the frenzy of The Meters but the fire of the Mohawkes while "Growler" does anything but growl - swinging with a fizzy lead line and heavy string strums, there's a train-like momentum that refuses to quit until the very last break. Heavenly.
