  1. Yard Of Hard (feat Fred Wesley) (4:14)
  2. Yard Of Hard (B Boy intrumental) (3:14)
Review: The Soul Immigrants are D'Pac and Yogi Patel, two UK-born brothers that have collaborated with Detroit's finest over the years, striking up partnerships with respected house gurus such as Chez Damier and Kevin Saunderson. They've released steadily over the '90s and 2000s, but 2016 marks fifteen years since their last release together, and this funky 7" for Dry Rooti feels like the perfect comeback. "Yard Of Hard" is a delightful funk swinger with Fred Wesley's silly vocals running above the arrangement; it's the sort of tune that instantly calls for the dance floor. There's an instrumental cut for the DJs on the flipside...

  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!

  2. We're Doing It (Thang) (part II) (3:08)
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.

  1. We Want To Parrty Parrty Parrty (3:03)
  2. You Can't Beat Two People In Love (3:23)
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.

  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".

  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.

  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.

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. Space Bitch (3:29)
  2. Stimulant (3:29)
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. 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. 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.

  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.

  2. I Still Love Them All (4:04)
Review: Gene Washington, a modern US soul man, appears here for Colemine alongside The Ironsides in what is perhaps the label's best single in a good while. "Next To You" is a gorgeous song, the sort of soul slinger that instantly turns the heads and lifts the moods without any fancy tricks, just powerful vocals. "I Still Love Them All" is equally stunning, but it's moodier, a more pensive soul tune that evokes feelings of euphoria in moments of self-healing and self-reflection. Recommended.

Review: Evans Pyramid material has been the foundations of the Cultures Of Soul imprint. The US-based boogie reissue label has put out nothing but gold over the years, but this has surely been th best gear on the label, and although both "Never Gonna Leave You" and "The Dip Drop" have been released before, this much needed repress is always welcome on our shelves. The former is a soft, hazy disco tune, but the real stunner is the latter thanks to its utterly addictive bassline and instantly recognizable vocals softly shouting "uh uh". Masterful.

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.

  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: 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: 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.

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. 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.

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: 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.
