Eric B For President (reissue)
Cat: KU 07051. Rel: 26 Nov 21
  1. Eric B Is President (4:35)
  2. My Melody (4:35)
Review: Eric B & Rakim remain two of hip hop's most love characters. Their wordplay and beat making was second to none back inter prime and has barely been bettered since. For that reason reissue slick this will always be in hot demand. This one focuses on the pair's 'Eric B For President,' a golden era great from 1986 that now comes on 7" after being an elusive find for hip hop heads for many years. This particular tune was Rakim at his most raw and direct best. The rap hero lay down the foundation here of what he would build his whole career on.

Review: 5 Borough Breaks always serves up the working DJ with the sort of vital tools they need to get beat loving floors jacked up and moving. Here a load more iconic of the ages are chawed up and spat out on a new two track 7 " that features none other than legendary MC KRS One as well as American champ Fat Joe and Sammy Nestico. 'Bronx Tale' goes first with a nice laid back beat, funky bass and some edgy breaks that build a vibe while the KRS One rhymes come hard. Flip it over for 'Shoreline Drive' which is a soul led tune with soaring wind sounds, big cinematic drama and a hint of 60s style.

Through It All
Cat: BCR 099. Rel: 19 Nov 21
  1. Through It All (3:29)
  2. Under The Sun (3:24)
Review: Five years after her last album on the Big Crown label, Lady Wray is soon to serve up a follow up in the form of Piece of Me. That arrives in January next year and is proceeded by this taster 7" featuring two singles from it. They showcase Wray's take on classic soul: her vocals do plenty of heavy lifting, and the instrumental funk all around her is steeped in the classic traditions, but it all comes with an extra raw edge, an urgency and crispness that brings it right up to date. 'Through It All' is a confessional that is powered by tight drums, where 'Under The Sun' is a more blissed out vibe.

Lapdance (limited 7")

  2. RunTo The Sun (3:59)
Review: It's time for a third drop from the TNT Rap Classics label, and this time they focus on an early 2000s hip hop gem from Nerd. Led by ageless front man Pharrell, they served up plenty of killer, catchy and hooky joints and two of them make the cut here. There are the gritty, sleazy sounds and grinding beats of 'Lapdance' with its iconic riffs and rhymes, and the more sunny and summery 'RunTo The Sun' which has woody breaks, natty chords and some smooth vocals from Pharrell himself. Two bombs for sure.

Review: After his last album incorporated neon and darkwave stylings into his ever-expanding musical fold, we unanimously agreed back at the beginning of 2021 that it was high time The Weeknd put out a 'greatest hits' album. In February, our wish was granted in CD form, and now, 'The Highlights' has seen an official rerelease on double gatefold ultra-heavy vinyl, doing thorough justice to The Noise's cosmic collabs with Daft Punk, Kendrick Lamar and Ariana Grande. Spanning cuts all the way through from 'Thursday' to 'After Hours', this album does a remarkable job of unifying the best tracks from this devlishly suited, R&B hitmaker's career.

Toxic Funk Vol 7
Cat: BBP 196. Rel: 04 Nov 21
  1. Put Your Catz Up (4:20)
  2. Hot Jumpin' (4:08)
Review: Breakbeat Paradise serves up some big joints for b-boys and b-girls. There is a decidedly old school feel to these tunes that harks back to the glory days of early block parties in the streets of New York and its surrounding boroughs. The vital 45rm opens with 'Put Your Catz Up,' a jumbled of big horns, lively vocal chants and tumbling, wooden drums and hits that is all about getting crowds up on their toes. 'Hot Jumpin'' cuts loose on more leggy drums, with old school whistles and a classic vocal refrain that demand everybody get up and jump, and surely they will.

Review: Decades after he died, pioneering rapper Christopher Wallace aka Biggie aka B.I.G remains a hip hop giant, not least for us here at Juno HQ. He had the flow, the character, the lyrics, and showed all of it on his masterclass album The Notorious BIG. It is now getting a well deserved reissue on double vinyl, with all the original tunes included. There are uber-hits like the ubiquitous 'Juicy', tracks that make astute social commentaries about the black experience such as 'Everyday Struggle' and then some darn right killer grooves like 'One More Chance' and 'Big Poppa.' RIP to the greatest to ever do it.

Review: Disco don, insatiable digger and edit wizard Kon aka King of Nothing takes care of the third release on Star Time with another special pair of tunes. Up first is the gloriously upbeat 'Messin,' a rolling and deep cut tune that lead by a mellifluous and seductive trumpet. On the flip is 'Stop (Rock The House)' which is packed with musicality and throwback disco grooves. Hip hop vocals bring the party while the kaleidoscopic groove, guitar licks, funk bass and melodies all freewheel. This is another red hot and limited 7" so do not sleep.

Cat: EDITSV 003. Rel: 05 Oct 21
  1. Workin Scrubs (2:59)
  2. Gold Diggin (2:57)
Review: Casual Connection (real name Lukasz Ru-Kasu) has been in the edit game for a while, with his first digital-only collection of disco and boogie revisions appearing on Alpaca Edits seven years ago. Here he returns with a third 12" single of his own, which also marks his first release of 2021. A-side 'Working Scrubs' is a clever revision of a '90s R&B classic that places the now iconic group vocals atop a rubbery, synth-heavy backing track that sits somewhere between nu-disco and '80s synth-funk. 'Gold Diggin' is another mash-up of sorts, with a much-loved hip-hop vocal sitting atop a heavy, bustling, all action rhythm-track full of stuttering drum hits and cut-up, hip-house style vocal stabs. Proper party-starting music.

Review: Since emerging in 2019, Inflo's socially conscious, politically charged Sault collective has delivered a string of inspired, impossible-to-pigeonhole albums that thoughtfully reflect on what it is to be black and British in the 21st century. Nine, the crew's latest set (and first of 2021) is every bit as incendiary, versatile and impactful as its predecessors, with the 10 collected tracks touching on everything from drowsy R&B, spoken word, classic soul and post-punk rock, to UK bass mutations, gospel, jazz-funk, Charles Stepney style excursions and hazy downtempo beats. Mixing live instrumentation and electronics with a wealth of spoken, sung and rapped vocals, Nine is a genuinely stunning, thought-provoking album full of razor-sharp lyrics and brilliantly executed musical movements.

  2. Boombaptist - "Jerry Mane" (2:42)
Review: Rakim and Boombaptist join forces for this turbo-charged cut and paste job. The two short but sweet tracks on this little 7" are packed with eons of hip hop and b-boy history, all chopped up, spliced and diced into fragments that you will have plenty of fun pulling apart. First up is 'I'm Rick James Bitch'with planning bass, crisp boom bap drums and iconic vocal samples the on the flip is 'Jerry Mane' which is slightly less raw and a little more soulful and outward looking. Both are big tools for big reactions on the floor.

  1. Nobody Can Be Nu (Disco Rap edit) (5:00)
  2. Thank You For Letting Me House The Joint (Funk Rap edit) (4:59)
Review: Aussie DJ Bacon runs his very own DJ, edits, mixes, and label operation as a one-man production line. With over 25 years of experience under his belt, this living, breathing musical conveyor belt is responsible for a smattering of old school hip hop, funk, b-boy and rock re-edits, most of which are cut to vinyl in quick bursts. This time, the former Queensland DMC champion spews forth a charming pair of edits on limited red, 7" vinyl. The first is a juddering version of The Mossie's 'Nobody Can Be You But You', with its new title executing a careful pun on the genre name, nu-disco. On the B is a titular nod to Omar S, in a downbeat dub of Sly And The Family Stone's 'Thank You'.

"Hahahahahahaha, everybody, check it out. It's that time of year, get ready to funk it up. Fly girls, fly guys, punk rockers, natty dreads... It ain't the wack, for a definite fact - it's Christmas, Jack." Cue Debbie Harry quizzing Fab 5 Freddy on whether he's actually St. Nicholas because she's never seen Santa Claus wearing sunglasses. Suffice to say, fun seasonal breaks this is, serious retro hip hop it ain't. Originally recorded in 1981, 'Yuletide Throwdown' was only released on a special Flexi-disc given away with now-defunct UK music magazine Flexipop the same year. Skip forward four decades and the tracks was 'rediscovered' by Blondie in the archives, and has now been selected for a forthcoming boxset slated to land next year. In the meantime, the single version - along with Cut Chemist remix - is arriving in good time for the forthcoming festivities. Think Christmas-related rhymes set to the classic track 'Rapture' and you're pretty much there.

Review: There's a reason that Massive Attack's Blue Lines frequently appears in "greatest albums" lists. To put it simply, it's brilliant, and arguably remains the Bristol-based outfit's finest work to date (though some would argue that the dark and paranoid Mezzanine is possibly better). As this weighty vinyl reissue proves, it's lost none of its hazy, dub-propelled trip-hop charm. All-time classics such as "Unfinished Sympathy", "Safe From Harm" and "Hymn of the Big Wheel" have lost none of their soulful, mood-enhancing brilliance, while lesser celebrated cuts such as "Five Man Army" and "Lately" still sound great despite their vintage.

Review: Rising star Sam Redmore has a debut album on the way. That will be one to look out for in 2022, but first he's treating us to a handful of teaser singles. The latest, 'On The One', is genuinely special. Built around a skittish, Tony Allen style drum-beat and complimentary horns from the fantastic Renegade Jazz Brass Band, it's a 21st century update of the Fela Kuti Afrobeat sound topped off with rapped lead vocals from Mr Auden Allen. He continues the party-starting vibe on flipside 'Nagu', a genuinely heavy, full throttle fusion of Afrobeat and house laden with swooping strings, sun-bright funk guitar licks and weighty bass. It isn't quite as cultured as the A-side, but it's still a rock-solid peak-time bomb.

Review: The legendary Wu Tang Clan has got a peerless discography when it comes to golden era hip hop. Part of that is a number of essential long players that go deep on the art form, but of course they will always be best known by many for their standout singles. 'Gravel Pit' is one of them and is dropped on the limited edition 7" with 'Uzi (Pink Ring)' on the flip. It's a floor-filling tune with a bump n grind beat, slick rhythms and the seductive female response. The b-side hits harder, with big horns and molten chords next to some raw verses that bring the attitude.

Review: Following the success of her debut album Man Made this year, here's a reissue of London artist Aria Wells aka Greentea Peng's Rising EP from back in 2019 on Different. She worked with different producers on this one such as Fred Cox, Kiko, Samo and Earbuds who lent their various talents. Peng's soothing vocal delivery is accompanied perfectly by hypnotic polyrhythms on songs like 'Risin', the blunted urban blues of 'Inna City', and the broken beat neo-soul of 'Liberation' being just some highlights on this terrific EP.

Coffee Cold (transparent green vinyl 7")
Cat: FMG 10GREEN. Rel: 12 May 21
  1. Coffee Cold (3:24)
  2. Space (1:54)
Review: While Canadian composer/producer Galt MacDermot will always be most famous for composing the score to legendary musical "Hair", he was also responsible for some killer jazz, soul and funk records in his time, too. Take "Coffee Cold", for example. Originally tucked away on his obscure 1966 jazz-funk LP, Shapes of Rhythm, the track sees him adding fluid jazz-piano solos to a chunky breakbeat-driven instrumental workout. On the flip you'll find "Space", a jaunty - if strangely mixed - fusion of lolloping but crispy drum breaks and jousting Harpsichord and piano solos. The track is arguably best known for being sampled on Busta Rhymes's "Woo-Hah", though before that it featured on MacDermot's 1969 soundtrack album, Woman is Sweeter.Limited green vinyl edition.

Review:  Russia's Paul Sitter is in the driving seat for this latest missive from the Funky Shit Edits label. He comes through with a tribute to New York City native rappers on the hard hitting on 'Money Boovin'' and 'Arctigalactic.' Somehow, despite his many previous edits, this is Paul's first time on vinyl. They mark him out as one to watch this year and beyond. 'Hussshhh !!!' is a dense collage with tumbling drums and raw energy, 'Time In Child' gets more funky with some spaced out synth leads and sliding grooves while last of all DJ N-Tone features on 'Snoop On The Water,' a big, muscular beat packed with heat.

Dean Blunt is nothing short of an enigma. Whether you're reading one of his interviews of few words, listening to the records that seem to both celebrate the avant-garde and obsess over it, or watching him descend into strange, otherworldly cacophonies on stage, usually shrouded in smoke, he's never really been an easy guy to pin down. And that's exactly what he's always been going for.

It's something of a surprise, then, to learn that Black Metal 2, the long-awaited, seven years in the making sequel to his critically acclaimed Black Metal, is actually pretty straight forward. In a Dean Blunt kind of way. Opening on the compressed strings and near-spoken word of 'Vigil', the record takes us into the deep dark depths of strange, hook-fuelled guitar poetry, and we never want to find our way back.

Review: Is there a more hard-working pair of party-starters than the Allergies' Rackabeat and DJ Moneyshot? The Bristol-based duo have been prolific over the last few years, yet the quality of their work seemingly hasn't suffered. Promised Land, their fifth album, is another invigorating, thrill-a-minute ride through hip-hop/funk/soul/rock/breakbeat fusion, where almost every cut is ripe for dancefloor plays. Highlights include the bluesy breakbeat bustle of 'Working On Me', the scratch-happy, Fatboy Slim-esque fun of 'Jumping Off', growling Dynamite MC hook-up 'Lean On You' (which reminded us a little of Plantlife), soul stomper 'Love Somebody' and 'Are You Ready', where Ugly Duckling's Andy Cooper and singer Marietta Smith both make their mark.

Review: Back in 2003 and after the big success of his 'Follow Me', mash up maestro Red Astaire put out 'Rollin' Stone' on G.A.M.M. It's a tune that pairs some fantastic vocals from neo-soul queen Miss Badu with a haunting piano line and guest raps from her then partner Andre 3000. Nearly two decades later it is still a cult tune that gets a proper reissue on 45. Flip it over for a special edit from Freddie Cruger of Angie Stone's 'I Wish I Didn't Miss You,' which also has never featured on 7" before. Both are crucial cuts.

Review: Galaxy Sound give this 1997 hip hop classic a new twist with some slick jazz stylings. Lil Kim's "Crush On You", is known by all but here it becomes something completely different: a forgotten jazz funk gem, colourful trumpet leads awash with lush drums and timeless soul. The flipside houses a re-edit of Jeff Lorber's "Rain Dance", which is in fact the original source of the samples on Lil Kim's track, and one that has been used on more than 20 other big time tunes. Here it's subtly tweaked but still remains a classic bit of jazz-flecked hip hop with some proper rude vocals.

Review: Stetasonic was a short lived American hip-hop group who managed to put out three strong albums in their short time together. It was a remix of their 'Talking All That Jazz' by Dimitri From Paris that resurrected interest in the group in 1998 and now this 7" continues to shine a light on the often forgotten group. After a release on black wax last it, it now comes on limited red 7". (Now Ya'll Givin' Up) Love' is a hard hitting beat with a tense atmosphere. The crashing hits and reverberating drums break only for big stabs to light up the groove, all the while the biting rhymes keep on coming. An a cappella is provided on the flip for more adventurous DJs.

This third record furthered their sample heavy sound and gave rise to one of their best known and most loved hits, 'Acid Raindrops.' Elsewhere the languid beats flow freely as the verses and the whole thing was produced in Thes One's home by him and pattern in rhymes, Double K.

Review: Detroit rapper Valid's 'I'm Blessed', a bona-fide party-starter produced by DJ Dez Andres, was largely missed by most funk and hip-hop DJs when it first appeared on his limited-edition Mihaljo album back in 2019. Funk Night Records have decided it's time that the track found a bigger audience though and have pressed it onto a must-have '45'. The track itself is a bustling chunk of flute-sporting, funk-fuelled hip-hop that reminded us a little of the similarly-minded fare regularly served up by Bristol duo the Allergies. Over on the flip you'll find something deeper and more laidback: the slow and low sweetness of 'Bottled', featuring guest vocals from Elzhi and Jessica Care Moore.
