  1. Turn Off The Lights (4:13)
  2. Fuel For The Fire (3:53)
Review: Sampled by the likes of Groove Armada and The Herbaliser, "Turn Off The Lights" runs with one of those bass licks you've known forever without realising. Flip for the jazz boogie badness of "Fuel For The Fire". Taken from the same 1975 album, here we find the same vocalist, Linda Logan, sharpening her tongue and getting her scat on with furiously funky results. Hard to find on 45, it's yet another example of AOTN's expert curation prowess.

  1. Escape-Ism (part 1) (3:13)
  2. Escape-Ism (part 2 & 3) (4:01)
Review: Get on Down conclude the series of deluxe 7" reissues from the vaults of Mr James Brown on their People Records sub label with a real gem from the Godfather Of Soul himself! A highlight of the Hot Pants LP, "Escapism" also holds historical importance as the record that launched Brown's People Records label in 1971 (from which Get on Down took the name for their own sublabel). The three part track will be instantly familiar with any JB scholars out there with the excitable funk frontman doing his trademark grunts and call and response patter over a parping sax and taut breakbeat.

  1. Art Blakey - "Stretching" (J Rocc edit) (3:43)
  2. Digable Planets - "Rebirth Of Slick (Cool Like Dat)" (4:18)
Review: With a refreshed label design, the Originals series seems in no trouble of running out of steam any time soon as catalogue number 30 hones into view. The 29th rinky dinky Originals squares the focus on Art Blakey's "Stretching" with one of the world's best DJs, J Rocc, offering up a fine 45 treatment of the Jazz classic on the A Side. Representing the sample flip on the flip is Digable Planets and "Rebirth of Slick (Cool Like Dat)" which deftly pulled out the horns and bassline from Blakey's original and looped them up for what is now regarded as an early '90s hip hop classic.

  1. Marvin Gaye - "T Plays It Cool" (4:24)
  2. DJ Jazzy Jeff - "A Touch Of Jazz" (4:46)
Review: In the pantheon of Marvin Gaye classics, "T Plays It Cool" is a steadfast favourite here at Juno Records. That intro, the stone cold drum fill, the monster saxophone, the subtle moog melodies, and the fact it was part of Gaye's superb soundtrack for Troubleman. A mark of its stature as a classic is the countless times it has been sampled, with Originals opting to line the flip of their latest 45 with Jazzy Jeff's chunky late '80s cut "A Touch Of Jazz". In his hands that classic lilting sax line and numerous other elements are included in a sampledelic fashion aimed at showcasing his scratching prowess.

  1. Alech (3:37)
  2. Soul Brother (3:44)
Review: Boom! Ultra rare outernational funk reissue action by the new Habibi Funk imprint! Dalton were a late '60s soul band formed in Tunis by a group of American music enthusiasts, and their one and only LP under the Dalton name was independently released and super rare until now. "Alech" nears psychedelic territories thanks to its echoing vocals and trippy percussion, whereas "Soul Brother" is more of a classic soul ballad, but filled with the band's own native roots, of course. Be sure to check, this is hot and recommended for the diggers.

  1. Rar (single version) (3:56)
  2. Rar (Radio Citizen vinyl mix) (3:57)
Review: Berlin's finest contemporary Afrofunk quintet lay down a freaky piece of spirited cosmic boogie where all is not what it seems... What begins as a pretty straight forward groove is gradually layered with more and more Manzarek-style freestyle organ slapping. The result is a really dense but playful construction that sounds genuinely unique. Looking for something with just a little more framework? Flip for Radio Citizen's chunkier, floor-minded remix. Rar indeed!

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.
