Strobelite Honey (reissue)
Cat: MRB 7169. Rel: 07 Aug 20
  1. Strobelite Honey (Maybe We Did mix) (3:50)
  2. Strobelite Honey (3:08)
Review: There's been plenty of great "golden era" hip-hop reissued on wax lately, mostly via tidy and on-point seven-inch singles. Here's another, as Mr Bongo offers up a replica edition of the increasingly scarce "45" of Black Sheep's 1991 scene anthem "Strobelite Honey" - a playful and fun-packed affair that still gets feet moving 29 years after it first hit clubs. On the A-side you'll find the superior "Maybe We Did Remix", in which Dres's entertaining lyrics about courting a woman at a club ride crunchy drums, scratches, squally high pitched horn sounds and a wealth of killer samples. Turn to the flip for the far funkier original version, which lifts warm, squelchy and groovy elements from early '80s disco cuts by Change and Luther Vandross.

Take You Higher
Take You Higher (hand-numbered green vinyl 7" limited to 300 copies)
Cat: 20207004. Rel: 05 Aug 20
  1. Take You Higher (2:49)
  2. Hummingbird (feat Alison Garner) (3:20)
Review: Bristol beat-maker, break-digger and turntablist Boca 45 has released some pretty special material this year, most of it on the 2020 Donuts imprint he inaugurated back in January. There's naturally much to set the pulse racing on the series fourth instalment, a highly limited green vinyl affair that we think will simply fly out of stores. A-side "Take You Higher" is a bustling instrumental hip-hop number based around slack-tuned breakbeats, heavyweight bass, cut-up guitar riffs and all manner of cheeky spoken word snippets. Vocalist Alison Garner guests on superb flipside "Hummingbird", a hybrid hip-hop/bossa-nova number blessed with mazy Hammond organ solos, bold piano stabs and extra-special percussion.

Party Rockers
Party Rockers (hand-numbered purple vinyl 7" limited to 300 copies)
Cat: 20207005. Rel: 05 Aug 20
  1. Party Rockers (feat Ash The Author) (3:06)
  2. Batucada Battlebox (3:27)
Review: On the fifth volume in his 2020 Donuts series of party-starting "45s", Bristolian break-digger and beat-maker Boca 45 joins forces with Ash the Author, a Reading-based mic man who has been tipped for great things by a number of more experienced MCs. He makes his presence felt on "Party Rockers", delivering distinctive lyrics over a rock-solid beat peppered with tight scratches and moody, horn style stabs. Boca 45 ups the tempo on heavyweight flipside "Batacuda Battlebox", a riotous cut-and-paste affair crafted from Latin style drum samples, booming bass and the West Country producer's usual sneaky and inventive instrumental snippets.

Ten Of Diamonds: The Remixes Vol 1
Cat: ARI 01101. Rel: 05 Aug 20
  1. Give Myself To You (Don-E remix) (5:04)
  2. Give Myself To You (album version) (5:06)
  3. Track 3 (5:09)
  4. Give Myself To You (DJ Spinna Galactic Soul remix vocal) (8:01)
  5. Give Myself To You (DJ Spinna Galactic Soul remix instrumental) (8:00)
Review: GLOW is a team of composers, producer and songwriters who work on solo projects as well as part of various groups, and they have a lush indie soul sound. Their "Ten of Diamonds" featuring the legendary voice of UK soul, Omar, is now revisited and remixed by a crack team of artists. Don-E goes first with a laidback, sun kissed version to make you well up with romantic feels. After an album version and a cosmic tinged, slow motion funk and soul jam known as "Track 3", the ever on point DJ Spinna serves up two fresh versions with jazzy chords and deep soul vibes that take you late into the night.

Check The Rhime (reissue)
Check The Rhime (reissue) (limited 7" repress) (1 per customer)
Cat: SSR 45001. Rel: 06 Aug 20
  1. Check The Rhime (3:35)
  2. Lyrics To Go (3:53)
Review: In 2019 sometime Star Creature producer Noam Ofir AKA Love's High adopted a new artistic alias, Soul Supreme, offering up a double header of boogie-fuelled hip-hop beats on Tugboat Edits' "Tugboat Editions" offshoot. This follow-up sees him successfully move further towards the jazzier end of the instrumental hip-hop spectrum. We're particularly enjoying A-side "Check The Rhime", a superb chunk of jazz-funk/instrumental hip-hop fusion rich in warm horn motifs, Roy Ayers style vibraphone riffs, deep Rhodes chords and bubbly electronic lead lines. That said, flip side "Lyrics To Go", where Offir utilises a well-known starry electric piano riff amongst his sonic arsenal, is also rather impressive and every bit as soul-soothing as its predecessor.

Creep (reissue)
Cat: BEWITH 006SEVEN. Rel: 05 Aug 20
  1. Creep (4:26)
  2. Waterfalls (4:17)
Review: American group TLC were way ahead of their time. An all black group who sung about their own expertises with unbridled truth. "Creep" is the strongest example of that as it is based on member Tionne "T-Boz" Watkins's experience with infidelity. Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes actually threatened to wear black tape over her mouth when filming the music video as she disagreed with the sentiment but the track went on to become one of their biggest in terms of both critical acclaim but also commercial success. It went Top 10 in the UK and marked a new musical direction for the group that took them to even bigger heights.

Give The Drummer Some
Cat: MRB 7166. Rel: 07 Aug 20
  1. Give The Drummer Some (3:45)
  2. Moe Luv's Theme (2:21)
Review: American hip hop gang The Ultramagnetic MCs hail from the Bronx and bring that real rawness each and every time. Founded by Kool Keith in 1984, the group also included Ced Gee, TR Love and Moe Love and their 1989 classic "Give The Drummer Some" is a stone cold rhyme that is well worth reissuing. It has drums tighter than tennis racket strings and crisp wooden hits, tons of vinyl crackle and of course some slick verse work. "Moe Luv's Theme" brings the funky breaks and scratching, reversed stabs and lively rhymes. As far as pieces of early hip hop history go, they don't come much finer.

Ego Tripping (reissue)
Cat: MRB 7165. Rel: 07 Aug 20
  1. Ego Tripping (5:15)
  2. Funky Potion (5:31)
Review: Although they would go on to become one of New York's most iconic hip-hop crews, the Ultramagnetic MC's were fresh-faced newcomers when they first popped up on Next Plateau Records - an imprint better-known for its proto-house and post-boogie releases - in 1986 with debut single "Ego Trippin". As this first ever seven-inch edition proves, it remains a stone cold classic: a heavy, stripped-back "golden era" gem in which the group's multiple MC's aim to get the party started over an iconic beat and weighty electronic bassline. As with the original version, it comes backed by flipside "Funky Potion", a scratch-happy, similarly constructed number full to bursting with effervescent rhymes, crunchy beats and distinctive bass.

Traveling At The Speed Of Thought (reissue)
  1. Traveling At The Speed Of Thought (5:01)
  2. MC's Ultra (part II) (5:13)
Review: This is the second reissue of godlier standard early rap and hip hop work from The Ultramagnetic MCs that is out this month. "Traveling At The Speed Of Thought" comes from their debut Critical Beatdown album in 1989 and is a real hard hitting tune stuffed with all sorts of punchy breaks that are easily recognisable and have since been heavily sampled by the likes of The Beastie Boys. The Ultramagnetic MC's were pioneers of hip hop in the late '80s and this shows why with its confident lyrical flow, big beats and brash vibes. Mr Bongo, of course, always do it right and that's the truth again here with this vital 7".

  26. Intergalactic (3:33)
  27. Sabotage (3:06)
Review: This is the first time ever you can own The Beasties' entire set, as performed at the Open Air Festival in St Gallen, on vinyl. This, then, also marks the first live release of this period from the band's long and illustrious career, and one of the first to feature the legendary Mix Master Mike on stage with the rest of the crew. He takes care of the intro and then its straight into hard bars and crashing hits, blistering drum rhythms and mad scratching. This is an essential cop for any and all Beastie Boys fans.
