Review: The 1978 self-titled album by the free soul band Lemuria remains much talked about around rare groove circles. Formed by Kirk Thompson of the iconic Kalapana, it's a proud statement of Hawaiian AOR, and highlights the magic touch of Thompson as both a keyboardist, and behind the mixers, his work as the album's serving producer. For this new reissue edition, P-VINE is including three bonus tracks and two alternate takes for the first time on vinyl, resulting in this deluxe fourteen track double gatefold package.

Chicago (12")
Cat: AOTN 12018. Rel: 21 Apr 22
  1. Chicago (6:41)
  2. Back On You (feat Crystal Winds) (13:28)
Review: Having previously re-invented Eddie Kendricks' 'Date With The Rain' as a luscious lover's rock epic, Athens of the North house band East Coast Love Affair has now turned its attention to another 1970s classic: Roy Ayers' 'Chicago'. In an act of genuine musical genius, they've re-imagined the track as a TB-303 and TR-909-driven chunk of acid house/deep house fusion, effectively updating Ayers' celebration of the Windy City while paying tribute in their own unique way. It's great, as is flipside 'Back on You (featuring Crystal Winds)', a dreamy, immersive and slowly building chunk of sunrise-ready, bongo-sporting musical deepness that's as sun-kissed and emotion-stirring as they come.

Song For Ehi
Song For Ehi (12" + MP3 download code)
Cat: CNPY 002. Rel: 25 May 22
  1. Song For Ehi (7:04)
  2. Song For Ehi (Bosq Disco dub) (7:03)
Review: You'd expect a collaboration between Columbia-based fusionist Bosq, Ibibio Sound System's horn section and vocalist Kaleta to be pretty darn good, and 'Song For Ehi' most certainly is. Inspired by a combination of classic Edo-funk, Afro-disco and reggae disco, the A-side original version delivers a near perfect mix of timbales-sporting dub disco grooves, reverb-laden lead vocals, Afro-funk guitar licks, Afrobeat-esque organ licks and punchy horns. The track's inherent dubbiness is further explored on the flipside revision, which adds extra layers of percussion and the kind of breathless dancefloor weight that marks out the greatest dub disco workouts. In a word: essential!

Nothing EP
Cat: FS 09NTH. Rel: 16 May 22
  1. Nothing But A Heartache (3:09)
  2. Nothing Gonna Change (His Way) (3:10)
Review: Paul Sitter's Funky Shit Edits series strides to a ninth release here with more of what it says on the tin. The a-side is a reworked 60s banger with new drums bringing extra heft and heat and a slightly different arrangement. It's a b-boy breaker that will pack the floor. Flip it over for something rather different on the B-side in the form of a more calming and pensive song originally from 70s but here with an all new arrangement. 'Nothing Gonna Change (His Way)' is a deep cut tune for those later get togethers.

Sessomatto (Soundtrack)
  1. Sessomatto (3:21)
  2. Kinky Peanuts (3:35)
Review: The late Italian film composer Armando Trovajoli was best known for his Italian expressionist / exploitation soundtracks. It's not so known that he made funk: 'Sessomato' and 'Kinky Peanuts' is as such a lesser known rarity, and consists of two made as part of his soundtrack to the film Sessomatto. With vocals from Edda Dell'Orso, the two tracks here are whispry, clean, tambourine-rattling and erotic; trumpets and drums buzz away on the A, while the B opts for clavichordy samba goodness.

Review: A welcome return to the compilation arena from Luke Una, whose deep record collection and pleasingly open-minded record collection make him a perfect curator. E Soul Cultura has a concept of sorts - the kind of vaguely Balearic but not genre-bound jams that the Sheffield-born, Manchester-based DJ would play to fellow E'd-up party survivors at 5am - but it's the quality of the music on offer that makes the compilation so essential. For proof, check the spiritual space disco shuffle of King Errison's 'Space Queen', the deliciously sub-heavy, post-bleep deep house soul of Sheffield outfit On's cover of 'Southern Freeez', the bruk-up soul of Type Sun's 'The PL', the Brazilian sunshine of Robson Jorge and Lincoln Olivetti's 'Eva' and the deliciously percussive, intergalactic jazz-funk vibes of 'Every Time I See Him' by Metropolis.

Cat: OGR 817 BLUE. Rel: 06 May 22
  1. Luchito & Nestor - "Tighten Up" (4:12)
  2. Nestor Alvarez - "Just Add Vibes" (3:06)
Review: Original Gravity return with another pair of tunes to elevate your soul. This time it is Luchito and Nestro Alvarez serving up the sounds on a limited 7" packed with Latin funk. 'Tighten Up' actually couldn't be any tighter. The drums prickle as they race along with breezy sung-spoken vocals up top and big horn work that will liven up any party. On the reverse is a more distinctly samba-styled tune with rich bossa rhythms, plenty of golden percussion and expressive horn work lighting up the grooves. It might be cold outside these days, but it will be warm inside with this one playing.

  2. Let's Have A Boogie (feat Heryo - T Groove remix) (4:37)
Review: Six Nine looks back to go forwards here as the label serves up a couple of super fresh new mixes of a pair of stunning modern boogie and funk tunes. Magoo was the man behind the originals and T Groove is the man on remix duties. Up first are the glossy synths and seductive drums of 'Not Too Late (To Make It Right)'. The leads are withering, the disco dazzle high and the catchiness of the groove all too real. Flip it over for 'Let's Have A Boogie' (feat Heryo) which goes a little bit deeper and seduces you, especially with the buttery vocals.

  1. RKIT (7:40)
  2. WTLDY (6:30)
Review: For his latest trick, cheeky scamp The Reflex has turned his attention to the Herbie Hancock tune that inspired countless 1980s kids to don a tracksuit, grab a pair of Adidas Shelltoes and hurl themselves around like the Crazy Legs crew. Naturally, his version of 'Rockit' is a body-popping treat that subtly extends and rearranges sections - especially those containing Hancock's jammed-out synth parts - and adds a few tasty breakdowns before unleashing the now familiar melody. Over on the flip the French producer takes his scalpel to the Isley Brothers, providing a fine multi-track edit and extension of the group's much-loved, guitar-solo sporting proto-disco soul number 'That Lady'.

Review: Larry Akles' Chocolate Buttermilk Band have been doing their thing as a cover and backing band in the Southern USA and working with The Temptations for decades now. They're a local sensation rather than a widespread phenomenon, with a modest discography which doesn't reflect their long running service to the funk. Making the most of the pandemic downtime, Akles got his band into the studio and recorded a smoking hot joint, 'No Money No Honey', which is instant gold for any boogie head. Still Music offshoot Past Due are pressing up with rare old gem 'Mr. LSD' on the flip, a rocking cut for fans of early Funkadelic.

Nothing I Wanna Know About
  1. Nothing I Wanna Know About (4:09)
  2. Bad Line (4:41)
Review: When it comes to scorching, 21st century deep funk, few can compete with long-serving Aussie outfit The Bamboos. That much was proved (not that it was in any doubt of course) by the band's most recent album, 2021's superb Hard Up. 'Nothin' I Wanna Know', the Lance Ferguson-helmed band's latest single, was one of the highlights of that set - a punchy, impeccably produced scene anthem in waiting that boasts some superb drum breaks, razor-sharp guitars, rising horns and a killer lead vocal from Kylie Audist. They flip the script on brand-new B-side 'Bad Line', a relaxed and bouncy, piano-heavy number that sounds like the band's take on the classic 1960s Stax sound.

Review: A short name hides a long story - Detroit-born Chad Hughs graduated from the same high school as Diana Ross, going onto become a multi-talented musician as well as a teacher and composer. The fourth release from cd exclusive vinyl pressers Jai Alai, collectors can now own this unique 7" containing two completely different sides of Sir Wick from his two albums. A side's title track 'Seal My Heart' contains the vocal talents of Sedalia Marie, with layered vocals and a baseline that makes this pure soul song feel deeply cinematic. The B side has been decades in the making, selected from a fully orchestrated musical in the works since 1996, finally being recorded and completed in 2017. These two tracks are deeply sentimental ditties of doting young love, and now two rare soul ballads from a musical luminary are available for the first time on a 45. What better soundtrack to date night than these?

Thankfully, those of us more bothered about the music than the sautes of the physical product can cop this reissue of Doris's debut LP for a fair price. It has hints of Joni Mitchell as well as Led Zeppelin and Doris herself was back dup by her hubby on bass, who provide plenty of killer funky b-lines under the experimental melodies up top. Add in Janne Carlsson on drums and great work by Bernot Egerladh on organ and you have an essential record.

Review: Long-time friends and semi-regular collaborators Lord Funk and Moar established the Nova Onda imprint two years ago in order to deliver occasional seven-inch singles featuring razor-sharp, on-point re-edits of Brazilian gems. The series has now reached volume three, with the Paris-based pair delivering two more essential, light-touch re-rubs. Our pick of the pair is flipside 'Nova Onda', a DJ-friendly tweak of a Clavinet and quelchy synth-sporting chunk of P-funk influenced Brazilian boogie rich in excitable raps, high-register male backing vocals and grooves so addictive they should come with a health warning. A-side 'Bela Menina', meanwhile, is a similarly tidy revision of what sounds like a boogie-era MPB number - think improvised male vocals, jazz guitar licks, huggable grooves and dreamy synth sounds.

Active on the circuit for 30 years, their style blends a peaceful mix of African jazz, funk and blues, and has seen them go as strong as they were upon their initial formation in San Francisco. Now, though, they throw a curveball: focusing more on the instrumental side of things, the new album 'Bush Brothers And Space Rangers' lays down a slew of tunes that were specially recorded without the use of a single guitar, which helped spur on this album's more soulful direction.

  2. Before We Say Goodbye (instrumental) (2:23)
Review: Dewey Kenmore clearly knows the pains of unrequited love and irrelationship better than most artists. The enigmatic soul singer's new single 'Before We Say Goodbye' channels the denial stage of grief: "you know it's just you and I, do or die", he opines, desperately grasping after the former ecstasy of a now fading relationship. The song is full of doomy minor chords and Hammond organ-ic reverie, laying on thick the mood of irreversibility around life's milestones.

Review: Blu invites you to take a ride inside their groove truck here with a superb new, and heavily limited, 7" on Closed Sessions. 'Comfy In The Truck' combines the best of the old school with plenty of new school touches and heft doses of soul. The finger clicks are immediately catchy, the drums deep and the bass super smooth. The bars are evocative too up top and the whole thing rolls with cool to spare. On the flipside is a fresh instrumental that strips away the vocals to leave those bumping beats.

  2. Just Can't Stay Away (mono) (3:24)
Review: Surprisingly, Don Blackman originally wrote and recorded "Just Can't Stay Away" to play as the recorded message on his girlfriend's answering machine. He later included it - tweaked and turned into a mid-80s style boogie banger reminiscent of his work during that decade - on his second and final album, 2002's CD-only "Listen". Here it finally gets a vinyl release thanks to reissue specialists Melodies International. If you're a fan of boogie, electrofunk and synth-soul it should be an essential purchase, not least because it's every bit as good as more celebrated Blackman productions made earlier in his career. There are "Stereo" and "Mono" mixes to enjoy, with the former naturally offering a more refined and intoxicating listening experience.

Wild Style: Down By Law
Cat: MRB 7204. Rel: 18 Mar 22
  1. Down By Law (3:42)
  2. Subway Beat (3:07)
Review: You might well have caught wind of Kenny Dope's exhaustive Wild Style Breakbeats box set which came out in 2014. It found the New York legend offering up six 7"s carrying iconic breaks used in seminal hip hop movie Wild Style. Well now you can cop something from that highly sought after box and enjoy it for yourself as the first disc gets its own individual release. On the A side we've got the low slung bass and dusty groove of 'Down By Law', and on the flip it's 'Subway Beat' with a sweet low funk groove. Both should evoke strong memories for anyone versed in the roots of hip hop culture, but regardless they're just kick ass beats you could have a lot fun juggling and blending into other people's music.

H/HH (hand-stamped 7" repress)
Cat: 45 LH. Rel: 03 May 22
  1. H (4:25)
  2. HH (3:52)
Review: When it comes to crafting party-starting joints featuring classic hip-hop and R&B vocals, few producers can match the output of Gallic rework fiend Jerome Potin AKA Moar. He's in prime form on this ultra-limited "45" too. A-side 'H' crafts a rolling, 4/4 hip-hop tempo beats out of some classic disco licks and then adds Ol' Dirty Bastard and Kelis' vocals from one of the biggest hip-hop hits of 1999. It's a simple idea, brilliantly executed. Flipside 'HH' is equally as funky and accessible, with cut-up edit effects, rubbery slap-bass sounds, jangling acoustic guitar chords, warming synths and the lead vocal from a much-loved R&B jam. Tons of fun!

This classic soul album includes "Trust In Me", "Say You Will" and "Call Me", the latter being written by Aretha Franklin. Travelin' features guest performances by Bernie Worrell and William "Bootsy" Collins. A classic soul album for your ears' sultrier side.

  12. Clement Djimogne - "Africa"
Review: Just when you think that the well of obscure music from around the world has run dry, Analog Africa returns to put the record straight. Pop-Makossa shines a light on a glorious but largely overlooked period in the story of Cameroonian makossa, when local musicians began to replace funk and highlife influences with the rubbery bass of classic disco and the sparkling synth flourishes and drum machines of electrofunk. The resultant compilation, which apparently took eight years to produce, is packed full of brilliant cuts, from the heavily-electronic jauntiness of Pasteur Lappe's "Sanaga Calypso" and horn-totin' Highlife-disco of Emmaniel Kahe and Jeanette Kemogne's "Ye Medjuie", to the dense, organ-laden wig out that is Clement Djimogne's "Africa".

Hot Music (reissue)
  1. Soho - "Hot Music" (Jazz mix) (5:07)
  2. Earth People - "Dance" (club mix) (4:08)
Review: Pal Joey is a legendary New York house producer. Whatever alias he assumes - and there are many - you can be sure of real quality, and this 7" features two of his best: As Soho he offers the jazzy keys and funked up house loops of "Hot Music" which samples Wynton Marsalis's "Skain's Domain". On the flip, he becomes Earth People and serves up pure house joy on "Dance" with its ebullient vocal yelps, party starting sax lines and timeless chords. It's the sort of celebratory, end of the night weapon that will send people home in absolute raptures.

Nothing EP

Cat: FS 09NTHPICSLEEVE. Rel: 16 May 22
  1. Nothing But A Heartache (3:10)
  2. Nothing Gonna Change (His Way) (3:08)
Review: Turntablist-turned-producer Paul Sitter is back once again with another of his tidy 7"s. This is another one that packs a real punch with a couple of hard hitting b-boy breaks packed with original soul and raw funk. 'Nothing But A Heartache' is the a-side with a Northern Soul vocal busting out of the mix, tambourines bring a sixties feel and the whole hitting nerve quits so is sure to get the floor rocking. On the flipside, 'Nothing Gonna Change (His Way)' is a little slower, the drums more leggy and the vibes a bit deeper for those more sensuous dances.

The Revolution Will Not Be Televised
  1. The Revolution Will Not Be Televised
  2. Home Is Where the Hatred Is
Review: Wow, classics don't come much more special than this. A like-for-like repress of the 1970 RCA release, both sides here are soaked in Scott Heron's raw troubled soul. The endlessly sampled, hugely powerful and perfectly funky "Revolution" remains almost as poignant and prophetic as it was the day it was penned. "Home Is Where The Hatred Is" is much more personal and reveals his talent as a singer as much as the lead track boasts his poetry and ability to deliver a strong message.

Disco Shitan

  1. Disco Shitan (long version) (5:08)
  2. Shitan (part 1) (3:09)
  3. Shitan (part 2) (4:03)
Review: A near-mythical release from the Italian composer/bassist/karate don Pino Presti, Shitan was a one-off project in 1977. Slow, pensive, full of tension and loaded with detailed cinematic elements, it still sounds forward-thinking today. No surprises that the original 12"s regularly go for hundreds. Madly the long version never made it to the original 12" so this is the first time the full five minute version has been available. As if a repress wasn't enough reason to jump on this!

Review: Stone Free was the only album to be released by funk and soul specialist Cecil Lyde in 1980, and its sumptuous body of songs immediately takes hold upon first spin. Originally released with the short-lived Californian label Aladdin Records, Chicago-native Lyde created an album of uncompromising modern soul and boogie that has an urgency to entertain.

My Jamaican Dub
  1. My Jamaican Dub (2:34)
  2. The Healer (2:55)
Review: The always excellently go slow and tropical sounds of Big Crown now look to Bacao Rhythm and Steel Band for covers of two classics. Up first is Grace Jones' nightclub classic "My Jamaican Guy" while on the flip is Erykah Badu's tribute to the legendary J Dilla, "The Healer". Both retain the essence of the original but come with loose hand claps, shimmering steel drums that bring coastal breezes, sand and sun into the equation and leave you laying horizontal. These are fine interpretations of top notch source material.
