Cat: FNR 142. Rel: 19 Oct 20
  1. Afro Cookie (Slofat version) (4:26)
  2. Psych Afrofunk (1:56)
Review: Funk Night Records continues to offer up new slabs of fabulously fuzzy funk from The Blassics, a nine-piece outfit from Finland that has been operative for the best part of a decade. Remarkably, this is the band's fifth single this year. On the A-side you'll find the "Slofat Version" of their tribute to the polyrhythmic percussion, raw bass and dancing horns of Afro-funk, which is aptly named 'Afro Cookie'. It's a chunky musical biscuit that looks set to energise dancefloors with its sugary delights every time it's dropped. Despite its title, flipside 'Psych Afro Funk' is not that psychedelic; it is, though a rather fine and pleasingly laidback ramble through the more relaxed end of the Afro-funk spectrum.

Silver Mercury (7" limited to 250 copies)
Cat: FNR 143. Rel: 19 Oct 20
  1. The Blassics - "Silver Mercury" (3:41)
  2. Broaks - "Her Ability To Transform" (4:21)
Review: For their latest 45 missive, Funk Night Records has decided to offer-up a double-header of fresh instrumental funk from two Scandinavian combos. The A-side features Finnish scene stalwarts The Blassics, whose 'Silver Mercury' offers a fiendishly fuzzy mix of low-slung drum-breaks, clipped guitar riffs and all manner of tipsy horn solos. Fellow Scandi-funk outfit Broaks take over on side B, building on the smoky, seductive sound of their recent self-titled debut album. 'Her Ability to Transform' is a weighty but sparse and stripped-back trip into hip-hop influenced Afro-funk territory that comes laden with drunken horn blasts, Tony Allen style drumming and some nimble, subtle turntablism.

  1. Rickey Calloway & His Tennessee Band - "Do It On The One (Stay In The Pocket)" (3:10)
  2. The Tennessee Band - "Ain't It A Crime" (instrumental) (3:06)
Review: Funk Night cop a couple of fine funk gems here from Rickey Calloway. He is an r&b singer, as well as a rhythm guitar musician and songwriter from Jacksonville, Florida. His Tennessee Band helps him serve up funk that comes direct from the 70s, James Brown style. Both of the singles here are [rimed to fire up the floor, with 'Do It On The One (Stay In The Pocket)' the more direct of the two and the flip side 'Ain't It A Crime' (instrumental) going deeper.

I'm In Love (parts 1 & 2) (instrumental)
  1. I'm In Love (part 1 - instrumental)
  2. I'm In Love (part 2 - instrumental)
Review: A lovely new 45 from Detroit funk/hip-hop label Funk Night Records .Rickey Calloway started his music career at the tender age of 13, clowning around in rest periods doing James Brown imitations. It's with the spirit of Brown's backing band The JB's that the Daptone label's house band, The Dap Kings, turn Rickey's vocal track original into a groove led funk set of instrumentals. This version is heavy on the guitar licks with smatterings of bongo percussion, smouldering Hammond organ and punchy brass stabs without the confines of vocals. Highly recommended.

  1. Don't Mess With GR
  2. Hard Way To Go
Review: The Great Revivers continue their unassailable 2014 assault on the record boxes of funk selectors everywhere with yet another killer seven for the Funk Night label. Brashly titled "Don't Mess with GR" may be, but this Russian quartet always prefer to let their musicianship do the talking and you can't fault the Great Revivers funk here as three odd minutes of prime dirtiness unfolds driven by a killer drum beat. It's complemented well by the more uptempo jam that is "Hard Way To Go" and lays down a marker for what to expect from the Great Revivers forthcoming album.

  2. Dead Dipping
Review: A fifth slab of 7" shaped funk live and direct from St. Petersburg arrives with the Great Revivers offering another Funk Night release that will invariably keep themselves busy on the turntables of funk establishments everywhere. Lead cut "Rhino's Walk" should be titled "Rhino's Strut" in truth given the sheer confidence the Revivers display as it progresses along driven by a killer drum break. Flip the Rhino over and Great Revivers are on more of a downbeat funk flex with "Dead Dipping" which is all about that frazzled organ. Big up Frank Raines and the Funk Night crew for this one!

Cat: FNR 098. Rel: 03 Dec 18
  1. Bar Hop (2:25)
  2. The Last (2:07)
Review: Since making their debut in 2014, Russian combo The Great Revivers has become one of Funk Night Records' most reliable acts. They're at it again here, serving up two more slabs of goodness inspired by their obsessions with Hammond-heavy grooves, scorching funk and dusty 1970s library music. A-side "Bar-Hop" sounds like their take on the Meters sound, with attractive Hammond riffs rising above flanged funk guitars, heavy bass, fuzz-soaked brass and a bustling, solo-heavy groove. B-side "The Last" explores similar sonic territory but feels a little more relaxed. This time round, it's the jazzy, flanged guitar solos that take centre stage, with their trademark organs merely acting as an impressive accompaniment.

  3. Lovely Lady (reprise) (0:28)
Review: More limited-edition instrumental funk action here from Funk Night Records, as the much-admired imprint welcomes back multi-instrumentalist and lo-fi recording specialist Jeffrey Scott Greer. In keeping with the warts-and-all sound explored on his series of straight-to-tape albums Schematics For a Blank Stare, Greer and his regular band of collaborators deliver left-of-centre funk compositions full of warming chords, loose-limbed grooves and all manner of energetic instrument solos. The most dancefloor-focused of the tracks is 'Funky 424', a low-slung affair smothered in fuzzy special effects and ethereal flute solos. 'Lovely Lady' sounds sparse in comparison, with a breezier and more picturesque tone. It comes accompanied by a short, beat-free 'Reprise' mix that focuses on the track's wonderful electric piano motifs.

Review: Despite the Afro-centric name, Kenako band is actually a jazz, fusion and acrobat outfit from Saint Petersburg in Russia. The band came together in 2017 and has 10 members that takes in various skilled musicians of the Petersburg underground scene. Their orchestra is a like a hurricane that sweeps you off your feet and takes you on a good-spirit trip through big riffs, wind and percussive sounds that celebrate the warmth of the sun. This self titled debut is a fine statement that is filled with vital rhythms.

  2. Loose Lips (3:42)
Review: Following a surprise outing on Burning Sole, heavy funk quartet The King Rooster return to regular home Funk Night Records with a suitably righteous and riotous two-tracker. A-side "Snitchin', Stichin' & Bitchin'" is one of their weightiest, club-ready cuts to date, with the storied London combo peppering a typically heavy and sweaty funk groove with razor-sharp, Blaxploitation style guitar riffs and increasingly intense, jammed-out Hammond organ solos. By the time the track ends, we guarantee you'll be pie-eyed and breathless. Over on the flip they doff a cap to the Meters' via "Loose Lips", a more relaxed but no less weighty or bass-heavy affair rich in mazy organ motifs, fluid solos and ear-catching bass.

  2. Orozco's Guarantee (3:36)
Review: Joe Baer Magnant and The Ready bring that sweet sweet soul sound to Funk Night for a tasty 7" packed with good time grooves and a lil dose of the blues. Magnant is an accomplished guitarist who's been striking out on his own more recently, and his chops are in full effect on the heavy-grooving "Honey Stung". There are serious amounts of funk in those drums, and some punch in the brass section, but really this one belongs to Magnant's expressive playing. He's equally compelling on the B-side, which houses more downbeat cut "Orozco's Guarantee".

Review: Earlier in the year Misha Paniflov impressed with a library music and laidback 1970s funk-rock-inspired soundtrack for a Janno Jurgens-directed movie called Rain. Both of the tracks featured on this "4e5" are taken from that soundtrack album. On side A you'll find 'Road Home', a relaxed and effervescent affair that fuses drifting, wordless female vocals, snaking saxophone lines and rising orchestration with grooves reminiscent of Roy Budd's work for the original Get Carter soundtrack. Over on the flip there's a chance to savour soundtrack album opener 'An Unexpected Journey', where Paniflov more expressively explores his easy listening and library music influences. It, too, is a calming treat for the ears.

  2. Practise Witchcraft (2:20)
Review: This stone cold slice of 7"s of funk comes all the way from Finland but takes you on a journey much further away. As the title suggests has some mad sitar action stitched into the raw and stuttering drum breaks on the A-side. It's a bristling groove to inject any floor with energy and worldly goodness. On the flip is 'Practise Witchcraft,' a more deep, slow moving groove that brings some psyched out sounds and a late night sense of playful soul. This one is limited to 250 copies so move fast.

  2. Live Saturn (part 2) (1:22)
Pascal & Bryce have got a couple of new 7"s out this month and 'Live Saturn' is another golden offering. It features two live versions of the same source track. Each one is super short which means you are left begging for more once they finish. 'Part 1' is all hard hitting drum breaks, wooden hits and drawn out, wobbly sitar sounds, and 'Part 2' is more beefy and chunky, with bigger bass underneath the jittery rhythm section and razor sharp hi hats. The sitar is missing, making it more direct, but no less essential.

Review: The always reliable Funk Night label outta the US of A has put out more than 160 essential 45s and the latest is another slice of gold. It is just one of three, yes three, 7"s John Reed and the Automatics are putting out this month and it is supercharged stuff: a-side 'Funky Mule' has powerful horns, hard hitting beats and a raw and rugged aesthetic that will demand plenty of sweat on the dance floor. On the flip is a cover of an all time classic - 'Reach Out I'll Be There' gets reworked as a more strident beat with a lead riff that will get hands in the air. As always with this label, these are highly limited so act fast to secure your piece of funk.

  1. On The Run (3:57)
  2. Xmas (3:02)
Review: Funk Night Records continues to showcase the music of newcomers John Reed & The Automatics, who here drop the third of three simultaneously released seven-inch singles. Inspired by the flanged funk records of the psychedelic era, 'On The Run' adds psyche-funk guitar sounds and trippy, effects-laden lead lines to a weighty, low-slung groove full of boisterous drum-breaks, booming bass guitar and wah-wah-heavy guitar riffs. They flip the script on 'Xmas', peppering a looser funk groove with squelchy bass, spacey synths sounds and psychedelic organ riffs. It's not quite as heavy as the A-side, but still rocks harder than Santa Claus after an all-night session with Keith Richards.

Review: This month Funk Night Records is releasing a trio of "45s" from previously unheard combo John Reed and the Automatics. They're all excellent in different ways, though this double A-side could well be the best of the lot. Title track 'Ethneogalvanik' sees them deliver a formidably fuzzy, horn-heavy tribute to African soul and funk full of Meters-style organ lines, crunchy Tony Allen style polyrhythmic drums, fluid bass and flanged guitars. 'Good Morning Brew' takes a more forthright, floor-ready approach, with more prominent guitar licks, Afrobeat style drums and rising horn blasts.

  2. Bumps In The Road (instrumental) (3:48)
Review: The US' Funk Night Records is pushing some serious heat as of late, especially given the fact that it's managing to find some real horsepower amid the contemporary generation of funk and soul - a rarity to be appreciated and recognised, these days. Bishop Smith is joined by The Sensational Disciples band to deliver "Bumps In The Road", a gloriously soulful song that gives new meaning to the term 'raw'; this might well be the most seductive piece of music we have heard this year and, if that sounds like an exaggeration, then you might just have to check it out for yourself. The instrumental, is naturally as wonderful, but the vocals on the A-side have the power to remain imprinted in your mind for days and days. This is very warmly recommended.

  1. Meeting At Flea Market (3:40)
  2. Shades Of Pale (3:35)
Review: While most of us will (sadly) not be going anywhere this holiday season, we can still get a musical taster of what it would be like Chilling at Christmas in the St Petersburg studio of modern funk apostles the Vicious Seeds. Their festive offering is a drowsy, deep, slow and laidback affair - the kind of jazzy instrumental soul and funk that would probably go well with a few mince pies and a needlessly large glass of port. A-side 'Meeting at Flea Market' is particularly lovely, with trombone and trumpet-heavy riffs and leisurely jazz guitar solos making themselves comfortable atop crunchy, deep (filled) funk drums. 'Shades of Pale', meanwhile, is even deeper, warmer and more bass-heavy, with some of the laziest and jazziest electric guitar solos we've ever heard. Delicious!
