  1. Beatin' Tha Breaks (Fouk remix) (5:21)
  2. Beatin' Tha Breaks (Freddie Joachim remix) (4:08)
  3. Beatin' Tha Breaks (original mix) (3:45)
Review: Brooklyn label Razor-N-Tape get in on the Record Store Day action with this 10" edition of Beatin Tha Breaks from Nashville-based Magic In Threes. It's the remixes that come first, with Dutch artist Fouk going into similar house territory to Kenny Dope with plenty of live instrumental touches blessing the bristling percussion. It's a totally different vibe on the Freddie Joachem remix, with the Californian opting for some midtempo funk breaks that stay closer to the sound of Magic In Threes' original version . This closes out the RSD release on the B-side and is an easy-breezy affair dripping with soulful guitars and harmonies.

  1. Little Eva - "Dynamite" (2:21)
  2. Little Eva Harris - "Get Ready/Uptight" (2:32)
Review: Two awesome covers from Little Eva who, fittingly, is most famed for giving us the famously covered "Loco-Motion". "Dynamite" is homage to Mr Dynamite himself, the Godfather of Funk James Brown. Taking the "I Feel Good" hook and making it her own, it's an instant winner. "Get Ready/Uptight", meanwhile, is a medley of The Temptations and Stevie Wonder. It's very bit as tight you'd want it to be. Once stupendously rare, now your while this press run lasts. 100 per cent essential.

  1. It Takes Two (2:03)
  2. Don't Be Surprised (3:06)
Review: Mid '70s deep funk and smouldering soul, Miami-style. Only laying down a handful of 45s during her career, Lynn Williams wasn't particularly prolific but what she did release has since become highly collectable with both of these sides fetching heavy triple figures over the years. "It Takes Two" is a sultry hip-strutting deep funk jam with a sleaze hanging off the groove while "Don't Be Surprised" is a much darker, barbed soul affair. A string-surged ballad, entrenched in authentic emotion; it's the female equivalent of Isaac Hayes's "I Can't Go To Sleep".

  1. Lucien's Luck - "You Should Know!" (Love That Brass unreleased edit)
  2. The Funktified Enforcers - "Papa Got A Brand New Bag" (unreleased Hammond Organ edit)
Review: Another sought after exclusive just for Juno repress from those cheeky Americans at Killer Funk, with curiously named artist Lucien's Luck kicking off the A Side with an infectious hip hop friendly brass led work out big with the b boys. You really should know this, as they so rightly tell us, and they could be right! On the flip, the Funktified Enforcers drop what could be the best instrumental version of a James Brown million dollar seller yet. Great drum breaks doused in screaming Hammond organ in large enough amounts to keep that dancefloor on the boil with your dancing feet occupied for the duration.A funk 45 must have record !

  1. Wganda Kenya - "Bayesa"
  2. M' Bamina - "Atide O Sika" (Nik Weston edit)
Review: Gems? Diamonds, more like. Sparkling funky diamonds that shine from every guitar, horn, bass and deep belly-driven chants. First up is a 1976 number from Wganda Kenya who actually come from Colombia. You'd never tell; with vast harmonies and a sonic span that's as wide as the Serengeti plains, its heart beats to a strict Kenyan rhythm. M'Bamina add a French African touch to the B on a specially edited version of "Atide O Sika" by label boss Nik Weston under his MUKAT edit guise. Watch out for the deconstructed percussion and bass break. A finer example of an edit you will not find. The Juno edition of the single comes in exclusive packaging of kraft paper hand stamped inner sleeve,additional branded card sleeve,signed insert,sticker and plastic protective outer sleeve

  1. We Gettin' Down (4:22)
  2. The Power & The Glory (4:10)
Review: In amongst their programme of May essentials, Athens of the North have focused on highlight the grand soul escapades of Master Weldon Irvine across two killer sevens. We Gettin' Down the second and final of these and features two tracks from Irvine's 1974 LP for RCA Spirit Man. The more scholarly ears out there will of course recognise elements of "We Gettin' Down" from A Tribe Called Quest classic "Award Tour" and it's been lifted by everyone from Dego's Tek 9 project to bandy legged pop star Jamiroquai over the years. It's a pleasure from start (what a moog riff) to end and is complemented by the jazzed up bliss of "The Power & The Glory". Athens of the North are really spoiling us!

  1. Chains Of Love (3:00)
  2. Walk Tall (3:40)
Review: Never pressed to 45 before, both firing sides are taken from Esther's debut album from 1969; Newport News, Virginia. Both cover versions, JJ Barnes' "Chains Of Love" is given gospel-funk muscle as Esther belts out her heart over an impeccably frenetic band while Joe Zawinul's instantly recognisable jazz standard "Walk Tall" gets a powerful spoken word flex. Gutsy business to the very core, this is a snapshot of Esther at her most ambitious, energetic and creative.

Review: A brand new label based in London and Paris but with roots deeply planted in the motherland, Africa Seven catapult themselves into our collection with such funky gusto very soon it will hard to be able to look at our collections and remember life without them. Their launch compilation is a showcase of Africa's funkiest side. Ranging from deep cosmic psychedelic rock (Ekambi Brilliant's "Africa Africa") to bright-flared, horn-fronted disco funk (Jo Tongo's "Jangolo") via firing, straight up floor-grooves like Jo Bisso's "Give It Up", this is an exceptional collection of a expertly curated jams that have yet to enjoy the exposure they deserve. Something tells us Africa Seven are going to add even more weight to the Afrobeat dialogue in the near future.

  5. Soweto (7:27)
  6. 20 Ans (4:20)
Review: Released in 1975, Cameroonian Tala AM's fifth album returns to the spotlight by way of African Road Trip. Dense, multi-layered funk with the emphasis placed firmly on the instrumental and vocals are used more as a rhythmic device, each composition is a fully physical adventure. Highlights include the strident piano slams on "Sugar Lump", the rich Q&A hypnosis and counter-play of melodies on "Arabica" and the much softer, reflective feels and shimmering high life guitars of "Soweto". Ageless.

  2. Jaguar (instrumental) (3:23)
Review: Amy A and her QASB cohorts come through with the second of two Soul Garden 7"s that really reaffirm their status as Tokyo's foremost exponents of the funk. QASB may be well schooled in the art of '70s funk but the lead cut here, "Fly", has a markedly more contemporary edge to it, and features some of Amy A's most powerful singing yet! As with most 45s from the band, the flip sees QASB flexing their instrumental muscles to the max on "Jaguar" a swift three minute exercise in how to rule on the horns!

  2. Tokuta (Grant Phabao remix) (4:03)
Review: LA Afrofunk fusionists Jungle Fire have slowly built up quite the 45" armoury since launching in 2011. Not bad considering they were supposed to be a one-off special project! Here we find Paris DJs main man Grant Phabao on the remix duties, masterfully highlighting the dancefloor groove that's already coded deep into Jungle Fire's DNA. "Firewalker" is a straight-up floor riot with a skanked out back bone and horn salvos so hot you could cook your toast on them. "Tokuta" has a deeper groove where a strong line of tightly plucked guitars is backed by a range of horns that dip so low you can imagine the players kissing the floor. Originally teased out last autumn, this is a highly limited reissue... Not to be slept on.

Review: Its origin unknown here as two classic cuts from the Bob James canon get the edit treatment on a highly limited 45 - strictly for the nimble fingered DJs only. Every man and his funk appreciating dog should be familiar with both "Nautilus" and "Mardi Gras", they are the epitome of 'iconic tracks' and it's nice to see them available on 45 for the first time, edited to give an extra bit of oomph to those breakbeats. Don't sleep !

Review: The Originals dot-joining exercise continues apace with another great lesson for the budding diggers and sample spotters... Here Alabama trumpeter Brooks' 74 jazz adventure is dusted off in all its meandering, joyfully unpredictable seven minute glory. Flip for a fine lesson in classic sampling as Tribe Called Quest's "Luck Of Lucien" utilises the hook at a different speed, pitch and vibe that's tailored for ATCQ. In the words of Q Tip himself "Get a grip on the mission you're taking".

  2. All You Need Is Time To Mess Around (2:49)
Review: All AOTN releases are special and have been curated, researched and excavated from the past with total care, attention and respect. This one, however, is a whole new level. Apparently originals have regularly changed hands for over $6000 and its taken 10 years for AOTN boss Fryer to located and procure a clean copy of the 300 pressings made way back in 77. "Gangster Boy" is a subtle slice of soul that gradually develops with sentiment and gusto as the backing vocals deliver harmony after harmony. Flip for a heavier deep funk affair where the instrumentation is much fuller and rawer but the BVs are just as big. A really interesting release in every possible direction. AOTN keep on delivering.

  1. D Lord - "Start The World"
  2. Werner Williams - "You've Got Style"
Review: Universal Cave Records 003 pairs another record digging and DJ duo, Philadelphia's D. Lord and Werner Williams. D. Lord's 'Start the World' is stampeding euro funk with chainsawing clav and an unrelenting bass groove. Maximum funk effect achieved with vital precision. Werner Williams' 'You've Got Style' exudes cool. It's one part psychedelic synth groove and one part cockeyed classic rock, soaring harmonies & juju for days - a long lost cousin to Fox's 'The Juggler.'

Review: Fans of QASB, Tokyo's foremost classic funk act, are in for a treat this week with two 7" hunks of high octane brass and drums business from the band issued through their regular home Soul Garden. By know you know QASB worship at the altar of prime '70s funk and what makes the band so special is the clear mastery of their art and the way their cuts are so damn danceable. Lead singer Amy A is key to horn heavy A Side "You're the Music" which has some killer breaks whilst the flipside instrumental cut sees her take a break to let the players lay down some heat.

Review: Released in 1971 and written and recorded by Dave Hamilton (one of Motown's most prolific and influential session players), Sugar Billy Garner plays the consummate band leader over a relentless groove that rolls with drama. Billy gets sweatier, the guitars get busier, the dynamic gets heavier and heavier... So heavy it rolls into a second part. Primed for the floor, it still hits hard 44 years after its release.

Review: You can just tell a bunch of record diggers are behind Africa Seven; it's only been going since the turn of the year, but already the Paris-London label is shaping up to be an important name in the world of archival afro funk. Hot on the heels of that Manu Dibango reissue, Africa Seven turn their attentions to the self-titled album from his compatriot Jo Tongo. If you liked Tongo's contribution to the Africa Seven compilation African Airways Volume 1 you should be all over this eight track album, originally issued in 1976, and still a long player oozing with afro funk style. Recorded in both French and his native Duala language and featuring production from legendary Parisian funk/disco/afro soundman Slim Pezin, it is a perfect example of 70s funk meeting afrobeat with African folk styles and flavours.
