  1. Taking Over (Suonho Latin reboogaloo)
  2. Mi Guajira Si (Suonho remix Con Ritmo)
Review: Second release from Suonho on US label Glenview and this time pressed on yellow wax. What you get here are two retweaked Latin soul/boogaloo tracks from 1968 given the sprinkle of Suonho magic dust, with new drums and additional samples. First up is Ralph Robles' ''Taking Over'' from the Conquistando Fania album; flip it over and you get the track ''Mi Guajira'' from Tito Rodriguez and it's another bouncy Latino affair with fresh percussion and break laden beats.

  1. Obedit
  2. Blvd Beats
  3. Body Werk (DJ Qu edit)
  4. Sentimentally (DJ Qu edit)
Review: Coming from the freshly formed Reiterate Music Group, Reiterate Vol 1 gave us four sharply reassembled funk edits. We're unsure who is responsible for the A-side cuts, but "Obedit" contrasts its orchestra of horns with subtle African rhythms and guitar, while "Blvd Beats" is a more stripped back affair, favouring tumbling latin percussion and a dusty 4/4 kick over any kind of melodic excess. On the flip, Underground Quality's DJ Qu provides two cuts on a disco tip, with "Bodywork" combining low-slung bass, symphonic 70s strings and classic synth tones, and "Sentimentally" providing an uptempo bomb with Italo undertones and jacking piano riff.

  1. Lonnie Lester - "You Can't Go"
  2. Lonnie Lester & Chuck Danzy - "Ain't That A Shame"
Review: German label Tramp come up with the goods again on this officially licensed juke box dinked 45. Originally from Missouri, Lonnie Lester was the eldest of 13 children and started singing as a small boy in the church before performing in his growing years with an assortment of doo wop groups. Later still in the mid 1970's he cut some singles and it's these two tracks from the US label Nu Tone which are featured here. Both tracks are raw but melodic R&B with the driving flipside ''Ain't That A Shame'' our pick of the two, assisted by organist Chuck Danzy.

  1. I Can't Move No Mountains
  2. 110% (Draaikolk remix)
Review: And so begins a new series from Laura Vane where she explains what she can and can't move. After mountains comes lorries (with a killer buildings b-side) and after that she's going to release a picture disc explaining how she can't move those massive barrels of beer pubs use. Not really. In fact she can move a whole dancefloor with her stirring soulful tones. If you're into Alice Russell (or any Tru Thoughts output for that matter) then this double funk-up will move your jacksey from here to next week. "110%" on the B is equally as wiggle worthy.

  1. She Paused
  2. Star
  3. Lying
  4. All night (Volcov edit)
Review: More smelly edits from the rather mysterious Blend It! family. As with previous collections, it's all about that juicy mid-tempo field; fluid, organic and primed for all good backrooms and warm ups sessions. "She Paused" has more than a whiff of Jacko's "Off The Wall" to it, complete with Quincy strength strings. "Star", meanwhile, drops the tempo even further and wiggles its way around with a jaunty, almost Idjut Boys twang. "Lying" is more you classic horn-heaving stomp while "All Night" comes at you like a Sunburst Band record. Four cuts, each one stinking of party success. Get blending.

  1. Louisiana
  2. Hit The Road Jack
Review: ''Louisiana'' from Percy Mayfield is lifted from the forthcoming Jukebox Mambo compilation on Juke Box Jams/Jazzman Records and boasts a velvety, smooth blues infused vocal set against a backdrop of a jerky Creole rumba and a sultry saxophone riff. On the flipside is the original demo from Percy of the all time classic and much covered "Hit The Road Jack".
