  1. Harold Mabern - "I Want You Back" (5:24)
  2. Funk Inc - "Sister Janie" (5:14)
Review: Tennessee's legendary jazz pianist, Harold Mabern, is surely one of the kings of the mighty Prestige label, and his material helped bridge the gap between jazz and funk back in the 1970s, alongside the likes of Idris Muhammad, The Jimmy Castor Bunch and all those geniuses. "I Want You Back" is a stone-cold classic and contains one of the most hummable trumpet lines ever, and if you hear closely it's been reworked and sampled by none other than the King of pop when he was only a little one. Funk Inc's sublime "Sister Janie" resides on the flip, a more lo-fi funk bullett for the diggers, and complete with a dusty organ!

  1. Love Like This (3:27)
  2. Was Dog A Doughnut (3:24)
Review: The Bacao Rhythm and Steel Band are one of the curious outfits who sound as if they're right out of the '70s, when in fact they are happily playing on their instruments in 2016, and making some serious burners. Their zesty ad energetic blend of horns, steel pan and live drums is the sort of African funk for those looking for some fresh and innovative rhythms in this day and age, with "Love Like This" providing exactly that - a bass-heavy, tripped-out kinda groove that spits quality from all angles. On the flip of this tidy 7", Cat Stevens classic "Was Dog A Doughnut" is taken on a more tropical flex, stripping down the groove and laying out one hell of a steel-pan concoction. Bless.

  1. Funk Over Egypt (4:22)
  2. Robots (4:35)
Review: Future funk king Temu lays down two deliciously juicy covers for Tugboat Editions. Synth-slapping, talkbox-tickling raw funk, first up is a cosmic twist on The Jones Girls 1981 soul jam with lavish lolloping beats and big woozy chord changes. Flip for the funkiest rendition Kraftwerk have ever experienced; listen to his expression and inflection... Few men have ever worked a talkbox with such finesse. Incredible.

  1. Order Of Nothingness (3:36)
  2. Tropical Eel (4:22)
Review: Apart from having been a pinnacle of both Sahko's and Warp's success over the years, Finland's Jimi Tenor is simply a great musician, a true visionary when it comes to dance - and non-dance - experimentalism, and one of the few truly imaginative minds left; yes, we know that's a bold statement, but it's what we truly believe. Here he is on Philophon with a deeply explorative 7", starting with the psychedelic hymns of "Order Of Nothingness", a song that seems to be drenched in 70's mysticism, but that somehow also sounds utterly contemporary. "Tropical Eel" is more left of field, where digitised Eastern melodies bleep to a steady, jazzy rhythm that simply calls for a head-nod. Recommended.

  1. Rap It Together (part 1) (3:26)
  2. Rap It Together (part 2) (4:21)
Review: Russia meets Detroit: two veteran funk bands join forces for a jam so heavy it takes up both sides. "Rap It Together" jumps with that authentic studio fuzz and precision musicianship that's both tight and loose. From the colourful guitar strums to the relentless rolling rattling beehive snare by way of the big horns, this is the type of funk 45 you could see yourself settling down with for life.

  1. Change For The World (3:32)
  2. Revelations (3:31)
Review: The self-professed 'Screaming Eagle of Soul' Charles Bradley continues his twilight storm into the affections of modern funk and soul fans with a prime seven inch taste of his upcoming album Changes. Bradley's latter day rise in cahoots with the inestimable Daptone has been a heart-warming story and he sounds in great fettle on this 45. Lead track "Change For The World" finds Bradley delivering an upbeat and brassy call to arms, detailing the current turmoil and offering a simple yet powerful prescription, "we've got to change our love, we've got to change for the world." Fans of the arrangement will be happy to see it appears in instrumental form in the shape of flipside track "Revelations."

Review: Although the UK's Be With Records are indeed masters of reissues, we didn't really expect them to be releasing Ned Doheny material. Don't get us wrong, he is the master of blue-eyed soul in our world, and it is a surprising yet much appreciated release! This self-titled LP is the master's debut, a 1973 cross-over that has always had the diggers' panties in a twist thanks to its funky sensibility and rock-infused backbone. There's hit after hit on here, starting with the Southern-style riffs of "Fineline", and swiftly moving onto more soulful territories with the likes of "On & On" or "Lashambeaux". While his Numero reissues have been clearly disco-tinged, this album is more contemplative, more rooted in country rock and it makes one hell of a roadside companion. Recommended.
