Feeling (7" repress)
Cat: LMNKV 76. Rel: 08 Sep 20
  1. Feeling (4:43)
  2. Bad (instrumental) (4:23)
Review: If we said 'a Latin funk cover of Michael Jackson's "Bad"' what would you say? If the answer is anything other than 'WTF? I need that in my life' we are officially worried about you. Who wouldn't want that? Not to let the cheeky b-side outshine the A, "Feelings" is a Banda Achilifunk original; rolling with a rhythm n' blues motif and some fly Spanish lyrics, it's feel good party joint with heaps of distinction.

Revisiting The Sunshine (reissue)
Revisiting The Sunshine (reissue) (7") (1 per customer)
Cat: BBR 019BLACK. Rel: 10 Sep 20
  1. Revisiting The Sunshine (4:01)
  2. Funky Sensation (4:19)
Review: Jorun Bombay is one of Canada's most influential hip-hop protagonists and his fantastic cover of the recently turned 80 year old Roy Ayers in the form of 'Revisiting The Sunshine' is one of his biggest tunes. A recent reissue on white vinyl sold out in quick time so now comes another chance to own it, this time on black wax. This one followed Jorun's recent edit series and is authentic to its soulful core. As summer fades away and autumn looms, keep the sunny vibes alive with this golden, heart warming version. On the flip is something just as sunny - a fine version of 'Funky Sensation' that gets a precision Bombay treatment.

Have Some Fun
Cat: OTS 187. Rel: 08 Sep 20
  1. Have Some Fun (3:42)
  2. Energy To Burn (3:28)
Review: Jeff Lane formed his American funk and disco group in 1972 and has plenty of huge hits to his name. The two presented on this special new 7" are not amongst them, but are standout tracks for lovers of funk, soul and disco fusions. 'Have Some Fun' has the big strings and dazzling chords that soar to the cosmos, with buttery vocals leading the charge. On the reverse is the much quicker and more direct 'Energy To Burn' with its dense rhythm section, charging drum grooves and noodling bass riffs stitched deep into the hurried funk.

The Loud Minority
Cat: OTS 211. Rel: 08 Sep 20
  1. The Loud Minority (part 1 - edit) (4:34)
  2. The Loud Minority (part 2 - edit) (3:17)
Review: Originally released in 1972, Frank Foster's The Loud Minority album was one of the legendary tenor saxophonist's most accessible and commercially successful albums. The album's many qualities were best exemplified by the title track, an effortlessly vibrant and effusive number that cannily mixed jazz-funk style solos and elements of modal, fusion and big-band jazz. This 7" single marks the epic, 14-minute piece's first appearance on a single, albeit heavily edited and split into two distinctive parts. The first (side A) is positive, cheery, undeniably funky, and underpinned with some killer drum-breaks. In contrast, the second is an exceedingly energetic and occasionally discordant affair, as Foster and his accomplices trade solos and build towards a breathless conclusion.

Porrovia
Porrovia (7")
Cat: NYCT 7066. Rel: 10 Sep 20
  1. Porrovia (3:29)
  2. El Metodo De La Cera Perdida (4:24)
Review: When Names You Can Trust was first establishing itself in the late 2000s, few of the label's artists did more to raise its reputation than 21st century Cumbia fusionists Frente Cumbiero. Via a series of seriously good singles, the Mario Galeano Toro-helmed outfit established themselves as a cumbia band like no other. They've been fairly quiet of late, so this belated return to the Brooklyn imprint is undeniably long overdue. A-side 'Porrovia' is simply superb: a fuzzy, bass-heavy Cumbia shuffler laden with buzzing analogue synth sounds, beefy sub-bass, punchy horns and stacks of quality Colombian percussion. Deeper, warmer and more rhythmically complex flipside 'El Metodo De La Cera Perdido' is equally as impressive, if a little subdued in comparison to the illustrious A-side.

  5. Brooklyn Sounds - "Ha Llegado El Momento" (45 edit) (4:27)
  6. Brooklyn Sounds - "Guaguanco Tropical" (3:42)
Review: During the late 1960s and early 70s, New York's Latin music scene was the envy of the world, with a swathe of immigrant musicians from Central and Southern America joining forces to perform and record new variations on traditional themes and hybrid fusions of multiple styles, most notably Harlem-born Boogaloo. This Rocafort Records release pays tribute to some key NYC Latin combos of the period, delivering two tracks apiece from three acts over a trio of seven-inch singles. It's a hugely vibrant and enjoyable set, with highlights including the jaunty salsa of Orquestra Olivieri's 'Los Muchachos De Belen', two fiery boogaloo heaters from Ozzie Torrens and his brilliantly named "Exciting Orchestra", and the carnival-ready rush of Brooklyn Sounds' 'Guaguanco Tropical'.

Cat: MSR 022. Rel: 10 Sep 20
  1. Polk (3:26)
  2. Balek (4:21)
Review: Not to be confused with the mascara-clad indie rock band of the same name, Placebo was a 1970s Belgian jazz-funk combo founded by legendary European jazzman Marc Moulin. Within the rare groove and jazz-dance community, the group's sophomore set 1973 has long been considered a hard-to-find "must-have". Here Matasuna Records celebrates reaching a quarter-century of releases by offering up a seven-inch featuring two of the album's most celebrated cuts. A-side 'Polk' is a genuine jazz-funk delight: a storming dancefloor workout in which mazy, ever-more-intense electric piano solos ride a relaxed but floor-friendly groove. Flipside 'Balek' is, if anything, even better, with spacey synths, sharp horn lines and fluid electric piano solos sparring over another leisurely groove.

Cat: 890926. Rel: 11 Sep 20

Review: Blue Note Re:imagined is a carefully curated collection of brand-new covers of classic material from the legendary label as served up by a selection of the UK scene's most exciting young talents including Ezra Collective, Nubya Garcia and Brit Award-winning Jorja Smith. For this latest 7" it's Jordan Rakei, who actually hails from Aus, but let's not get mad about that because the super smooth soul singer reaches new heights on the free flowing, heart opening 'Wind Parade'. Jazz pianist Alfa Mist takes care of the flip with a suitably cosmic exploration on 'Galaxy' that pairs live, busy drums and soaring synths with rich chords.

Ain't That Terrible (Record Store Day 2020)
  1. Ain't That Terrible (2:32)
  2. A Change Is Gonna Come (3:42)
Review: Northern Soul diggers have spent many frustrating hours trying to track down copies of Roy Redmond's notoriously hard to find 1967 single 'Ain't That Terrible', which was initially released on cult label Loma. Listening to this timely and much-needed Record Store Day 2020 reissue, it's easy to see why. The track is exactly the kind of surging, stomping, up-tempo number that makes Northern Soul dancefloors go crazy, all topped off by an excitedly rousing lead vocal from Redmond. Over on the flip you'll find original B-side 'A Change Is Gonna Come', a lusciously arranged, performed and produced version of the Sam Cooke favourite smothered in melancholic horns, jazzy guitars and sustained organ chords.

Changes (7")

  1. Changes (4:39)
  2. Going Back To My Roots (4:46)
Review: Stone Foundation build on their well-received first single from earlier this year with another lovely bit of slow motion funk on the 100% label. First up is 'Changes', an all new tune that languishes in long legend drums, perfectly lazy hits and drawn out sax lines that sooth your soul and melt your heart. The flip is a fine cover of 'Going Back To My Roots' which anyone who has seen the band play live over the years will know has been part fo their repertoire for a while. It's a more uptempo and tightly coiled funk strider that busts with trumpet stabs and noodling sax energy.

  2. The Moving Finger (edit) (4:58)
Review: Black Cash & Theo AKA Thelonious Beats are Galaxy Sound Co's most experienced editors, having served up already nine excellent offerings on this label. Their latest careful bit of studio splicing work is again a cosmic and mind expanding jazz funk fusion with righteous grooves and life-affirming riffs. The A-aide is a sweet and seductive sound that comes up from below to sweep you off your feet and carry you away to the stars, then 'The Moving Finger' is a little more rooted on planet earth with its knotted bass riffs, glowing harmonies and rickety lead guitar riff, all finished off with some spiritual sax work.

Review: It's been a long time since DJ Kolt linked up with his brother DJ Noronha and DJ Peligroso for a Blacksea Nao Maya session - five years to be precise. But the wait has arguably been worth it... Taking their distinctive Lisbon kuduro brew to deeper, darker places, there's a strong theme of trippy timewarping as the trio push, squeeze and cajole us through eight new instrumentals. From the slo-mo tension and ominous weight of opener 'Terror' to the more hopefully, bubbly afrobeat finale 'Africanalidade' by way of stirring mid-point adventures like the woozy, Vangelis-facing 'Horizonte' and the curmudgeonly offbeat kuduro drums of '7even', it's another truly singular set from the Principe collective.

Review: Since being touted as jazz's next big thing back in 2014, Moses Boyd has released very little music, though the few EPs he has put out have been uniformly superb. We'd expect plenty of hype around this debut album, but we can assure you it will be deserved. Boyd is a drummer by trade and it's the variety and quality of the rhythms - some framed by traditional jazz, others hip-hop, grime, dubstep, dancehall and Tony Allen style Afrobeat grooves - that really stand out, despite the presence of fuzzy, Fela Kuti style horn motifs, booming basslines, Juju guitar solos, liquid jazz-funk flourishes, dark trip-hop tropes and some suitably inspiring vocals. Boyd may have taken his time, but it was definitely worth the wait.

Review: Since it was first released in the collective's native Brazil in 1978, the self-titled debut album from Guilherme Coutinho E O Groupo Stalo has become a sought-after item amongst collectors of Latin jazz. This reissue - the first of any kind - proves why. Offering a mixture of samba-soaked Latin jazz rhythms, sweet vocals, spacey analogue synthesizer sounds, Azymuth style electric piano motifs, MPB style songwriting and Brazilian jazz-funk stylistic tropes, it's a joyously sunny and quirkily off-kilter affair that impresses from start to finish. Production wise it's a little loose and fuzzy round the edges, but that only adds to the album's obvious allure. Recommended!

Review: Percussion, sax and piano trio Mammal Hands have long been a unique proposition within British jazz, with their increasing use of both Indian Tabla rhythms and electronic sounds - as well as a fondness for Steve Reich/Terry Riley style minimalism - making their albums especially hard to pigeonhole. Captured Spirits, the Norwich-based combo's fourth studio set, keeps up this tradition. While rooted in the twinkling piano motifs and seductive, ear-pleasing saxophone solos of jazz, percussionist Jesse Barrett's rhythms are particularly bold and forthright, drawing just as much from contemporary dancefloor grooves and club-ready jazz-funk as more traditional jazz fare. It's an especially addictive combination and one that makes Captured Spirits a gorgeous and lively listen.

Review: Mr. K and Most Excellent Unlimited are back with another must have motherlode of ten essential cuts on 7-inch, assembling a serious cross-section of diverse jams that were particularly popular at The Garage, majority of which appearing on 7-inch for the very first time in any form, let alone in these unique quintessential edits. Patrick Adams and Greg Carmichael production, female diva classic "Let's Get Together" backed with a previously unreleased NYC Peech Boys demo version of "Somebody Else's Guy." Tough South Bronx funk "Standing In Line". Synth epic, Krivit's classic edit of "Evolution". Disco Funk edit of Larry Levan's "Slap, Slap, Lickedy Lap". With much more in this diverse and remarkably sought after tracklist, surprises, like "Catch The Rhythm" (the only Boris Midney production regularly played at The Garage), along with Mr. K's previously Japan-only edit of Loleatta Holloway tour de force "I May Not Be There When You Want Me". Five singles impressively mastered with maximum fidelity and playability for an exclusive Record Store Day, including a bonus pair of newly designed, Mr. K seven-inch slipmats.

  12. Blakai - "Afrospace" (feat Bembe Segue) (5:23)
Review: The first post-name change project for Dave Lee fka Joey Negro is a look back over his favourite West London sounds from the ZR catalogue. It's a widescreen offering that takes in plenty of the corner stones of the early broken beat and nu jazz scene. Things kick off with a Bugz in the Attic remix of 4Hero filled with lush synths and skipping kicks. Kaidi Tatham's 'Organic Juggernaut' is an even busier cut with big flute lines and Agent K appears twice, firstly with the deep grooves of 'Feed The Cat' then the mellifluous jazz-scapes of 'Hands'. It all adds up to an essential collection.

Review: On Help, Timothy Duval is in his most ambitious mood yet. It finds him collaborate with King Kruele and The xx associate Rodaidh McDonald as well as Lil Silva, Vegyn and Mr Mitch during session help in both London and LA. Inspired by an exploration of mental health, YouTube tutorials, the healing powers of proper friendship and life in the music industry, it is a widescreen record that ranges from sentimental piano pieces to experimental pop via jazz piano, warped electronic textures and organic world music soundtracks. Spellbinding isn't the half of it.

Review: Although the Hammond B3 organ went in sale in 1954, it wasn't until jazz keyboardist Jimmy Smith started using it on his recordings a couple of years later that its popularity began to rocket. By the 60s and 70s, the B3 was the go-to keyboard/organ for many funk and soul bands. This compilation - the second Hammond-focused collection from the crate diggers at Perfect Toy Records - does a great job in showcasing obscure, B3-heavy tracks from the instrument's heyday, focusing largely (but not entirely) on instrumental funk and the kind of heavy rhythm & blues tracks that have always set Mods' hearts racing. It's a killer collection all told, and one packed to the rafters with weight drum-breaks, fiery horns, rugged guitar riffs and - of course - hammered-out Hammond solos.
