  1. Eko - "M'Ongele M'Am"
  2. Georges Ouedraogo - "Deni"
Review: Mukatsuku's ongoing "Afro Series" continues with a fine limited edition 45 containing two funk-fuelled floor-fillers. In fact, you'll struggle to find a more celebratory and life-affirming workout than Eko's "M'Ongele M'Am" licensed from Nubiphone & Africa Seven, a Makossa-fired Afro-disco gem rich in punchy horns, driving Afro-boogie bass, lilting synthesizer lines, Mariachi style trumpet solos and the kind of chant-along vocals that should put a smile on the face of even the most miserable of dancers. Over on side B, Georges Ouedraogo's "Deni" is an essential Clavinet-happy killer chunk of Afro-funk/Afro-Disco fusion from Burkina Faso. As played by Floating Points,The Allergies,Faze Action,Antal ,Lego Edits & Red Greg so far...

  1. Vaughn Mason - "Bounce, Rock, Skate, Roll" (4:23)
  2. Bad Bascomb - "Black Grass" (3:16)
Review: More from the matter-or-fact Breaks & Beats seven-inch series, which offers up DJ-friendly "slight edits" of funk, soul and disco classics built around extending the drum breaks in sometimes hard-to-mix classic cuts. The tenth volume in the series kicks off with a mix-friendly tweak of Vaughan Mason's roller-boogie anthem "Bounce, Rock, Skate, Roll" that expertly stretches out the previously all-too-short instrumental intro. Over on side B, Bad Bascomb's odd but brilliant country-funk hoedown "Black Grass" gets a similar treatment, with Breaks & Beats' un-named re-editor sneakily extending sweaty drum breaks here and there throughout the track. Given the quality of those breaks, this is a very good thing indeed.

  1. Good Edits (part 1) (4:34)
  2. Good Edits (part 2) (4:08)
Review: More from top-drawer rework merchant DJ Soopasoul, whose cheeky revisions on his Soopastole label are consistently on point and dancefloor-focused. For his latest trick, the long-serving DJ/producer has decided to apply his magic to one of the greatest disco records of all time and a "foundation record" of the hip-hop scene: Chic classic "Good Times". The A-side edit sounds like it has been created using the multi-track parts, as dubbed-out vocal sections ride stripped-back grooves and portions that variously showcase the track's original strings, Nile Rodgers' guitars and Bernard Edwards' killer bassline. The flipside "Part 2" version is similarly minded but more like a disco dub in feel and execution, with the maestro drenching vocal sections in delicious amounts of delay.

  1. Enticers - "Thief" (Professor Shorthair remix) (3:16)
  2. Warren Lee - "Underdog Backstreet" (DJ Platurn remix) (3:53)
Review: Five years have passed since Superjock launched the Nola Breaks series of DJ-focused funk reworks. Here the New Orleans-based imprint offers up installment number nine, handing over the reins to local legend Professor Shorthair and Bay Area scratcher DJ Platurn. The former handles the A-side, wrapping the Enticers' fuzzy funk gem "Thief" - as sampled by Mos' Def - in fat new breaks and tight scratches. On the flip, DJ Platurn has his wicked way with Warren Lee classic "Underdog Backstreet", wisely extending the intro and outro breaks while also adding some tasty new samples.

  1. That's On You (feat Rickey Calloway) (3:09)
  2. That's On You (instrumental) (3:31)
Review: Last spotted whipping up groove magic with Amp Fiddler, highly respected Detroit funk collective Will Sessions tag up with another old friend, funk king Rickey Calloway. First spotted with the band on Funk Night Records on "Shake It Up, Shake It Down", they instantly rekindle their vibe with this deep groove JB style excursion. Led by Rickey's commanding spoken world, driven by the band's fluid like motion and just a touch of cosmicity in the production, it's another stone-cold gem from some of the tightest cats in D Town.

  1. Move A Mountain (feat Louis Baker) (3:39)
  2. Bryan Munich Theme (3:42)
Review: After stuffing us with the sweet, sweet donuts for the last year, Boca 45 sets up a new b-boy mission with these two heavy party hitters. "Move A Mountain" is a real steam train of a jam with big 80s breaks and powerful vocals from Louis Baker hitting Joe Dukie levels. Flip for another floor tickler in the form of "Bryan Munich Theme". Packing a frazzled guitar-led 70s funk feel (with just a wee dash of classic 98 Bowser in the feels) we have no idea who Bryan is but we're glad he exists.

  1. Ocean Drive (4:05)
  2. Liquor Bar (4:12)
Review: Besides having one a particularly crucial name, Mannheim artist Freethinker Funk Essence knows his way around a big fat juicy groove. Building up a solid reputation on Timewarp and Hungarian imprint Mustbeat, here we find him landing on rising Swiss funk imprint Burning Sole with two limited work outs; "Ocean Drive" struts with some fine jazz boogie with fizzy Jean-Jacques Perrey style synth squiggles galore. "Liquor Bar" rolls at a slightly more leisurely pace, a swaggering break and lazy woozy keys. Only 100 pressed.

  2. Beautiful Day (Drums) (3:00)
Review: Athens Of The North celebrate the longstanding contributions of host, presenter, writer, personality and occasional singer Bernard "Spider" Harrison. Recorded sometime around 1970, and fetching large triple figures between collectors, the feel good bluesy soul cut "Beautiful Day" first landed on Lulu Records and has barely seen the light of day since... Until now. And it's loaded with a never-before-released drum cut. Don't sleep, though. Only 500 of these have been pressed.

Review: With a long line of Tru Thoughts documents in his back cat going back to the mid-2000s, and a damn fine comeback on Lack of Afro's label a few years back, Flevans delivers his third album on the mighty Jalapeno. The perfect playground for his wide-armed hook-laden musical funk, and home to his prominent band members Elliott Cole and Izo FitzRoy, it's a match made in groove heaven. The sleazy prowls of "Two Steps", the delicious jazz funk of "Part Time Millionaire", the gilded feel good soul of "15,000 Words" and the straight up shape cutter "Invisible" are just some of the on-point highlights. And that's before we even get to the smouldering Lauryn Hill cover "Ex Factor". Part time millionaire, full time musical brilliance.

  1. Ain't It Funky Now (4:32)
  2. Greasy Spoon (4:10)
Review: Late, great Japanese funk don Takehiro Honda's vaults get the treatment from HMV as two of his many famously fizzy jams enjoy a new lease of life. 1971's "Ain't It Funky Now" should be familiar by all as it subverts the good work of the greatest band leader of all time with mild jazz and funk fusion. "Greasy Spoon" on the B can be found a few years deeper into Takehiro's discography as part of his 1973 album "What's Going On". Another supreme, lucid fusion cut; not only does it still kick up a fuss on the dancefloor, it also salutes the best cooked breakfasts on the planet. Not to be slept on.
