Let Yourself Go
Cat: GR 1220. Rel: 01 Aug 17
Deep House
  1. Let Yourself Go (Penn Ave mix) (5:59)
  2. Let Yourself Go (Penn Ave dub) (7:16)
  3. Let Yourself Go (Capitol mix) (3:12)
  4. Let Yourself Go (Capitol dub) (7:20)
  5. Let Yourself Go (Georgetown mix) (5:18)
Review: Doug Smith and Richard Payton aka 95 North are a house music production duo from Washington DC. They are well known for their 90's discography which was full of hits on the likes of Strictly Rhythm, King Street Sounds and Slip 'N Slide, including collaborations with Crystal Waters and Sabrynaah Pope. "Let Yourself Go' was originally released in 1995 and probably one of the best moments of their activity in the house music scene. The jacking and swing fuelled vocal house of "Let Yourself Go" (Penn Ave mix) is a real zeitgeist of stateside house music of the mid noughties. Equally memorable were the dark and tribal drums of "Capitol mix" (reminiscent of classic Cevin Fisher) or the deeper and sexier garage vibe of the "Georgetown mix".

Disco/Nu-Disco
  1. E La Luna Busso (4:34)
  2. In Alto Mare (4:25)
Review: Loredana Berte's career started in the mid seventies and went on to make her into one of the most iconic Italian singers of her generation. Her 1980's album proved her most acclaimed and now Groovin Records serve up two of its most standout cuts. The fuse big hearted vocals, cosmic disco keys and funky reggae beat that will warm any early evening party right up. 'In Alto Mare' is the more upbeat of the two thanks to its funky riffs and big piano stabs, but both still sound mighty fine after 40 years.

  2. Welcome To The Party (3:54)
  3. Dancin' On Town Square (3:34)
Review: This is a first official repress of "Il Veliero" after the original 1982 12" release. It is an all-time Italo classic that is presented in full glory with the original sleeve and 12 minute extended mix that will carry you away on a slightly cheesy but easy to love disco groove full of warm sunny breeze and carefree melodic bliss. Two lesser known cuts take up the b-side - the playful percussive disco funk of "Welcome To The Party" and uptempo licks and sliding hi hats of "Dancin' On Town Square." Summer, where you at?

  3. When You Love Someone (acappella reprise) (1:05)
  4. When You Love Someone (Groove instrumental) (7:55)
  5. When You Love Someone (The Reconstruction mix) (8:18)
Review: The latest on-point reissue from Italy's Groovin' label takes us back to 1993, and the Peter Daou/Danny Tenaglia-produced debut single from vocalist Daphne Rubin-Vega. It's a far breezier, groovier and sweeter record than many of Tenaglia's later productions (which tended towards the muscular), with Rubin-Vega's quietly soulful vocal seemingly drifting across a backing track rich in warm chords and baggy, breakbeat-driven house grooves. All of the various mixes hit the spot, with the trippy, dub-style Reconstruction Mix, vibraphone-laden Groove Instrumental and low-slung Never Do Dub standing out. The Acapella Reprise, which features rich chords and vocal snippets, is also rather good.

Feelin You In & Out
Cat: GR 1217. Rel: 23 May 17
Deep House
  1. Feelin You In & Out (5:37)
  2. Feelin You In & Out (7:06)
Review: Luckily for us and you lot reading this - perhaps not so much for the owners of the original copies - Peven Everett has decided to embark on a bit of a reissue marathon, with plenty of his biggest hits resurfacing on our charts after lengthy hiatuses. The king of 'soulful' house has never sounded so good, and it's thanks to Italy's Groovin label that we're graced with two version of 2007's Feelin You In And Out. In case you don't know this monster of a song, just try to imagine an underground version of R Kelly backed by the sort of dubbed-out house made by peeps like Mood II Swing, and you're somewhere close to it. You also get two versions of the hit, one deep version and another more fast-paced take. Magic.

Feelin Who You Are

  2. Feelin Who You Are (4:53)
  3. Feelin Who You Are (Shelter vocal) (7:28)
  4. Feelin Who You Are (Shelter dub) (6:51)
Review: Although we've become accustomed to Groovin' digging into the crates for inspiration, few would have expected their latest release to be a reissue of one of Peven Everett's most slept-on soulful house gems. "Feelin' Who You Are" first appeared in 2008 on the flip of a double A-side single, before being given a pressing of its own with fresh reworks. This edition includes versions from both releases, beginning with the near 16-minute "Original Drum Cartell Full Length Mix" - an epic journey through musically rich, live-sounding dancefloor grooves topped up with an impeccable Peverett lead vocal. We're also treated to the warmer, tighter "Original Mix" and two Shelter mixes by Adam Rios and Timmy Regisford: a rolling, ultra-positive vocal take and a squelchy, bassline-driven dub full of intricate instrumental flourishes.

Cat: GR 1240. Rel: 02 Nov 18
Disco/Nu-Disco
  1. Nisyan (4:18)
  2. La-Ya-Hob (3:28)
Review: In 1977, Libyan musician Ahmed Fakroun flew to Milan to record some new material. The results were showcased on a pair of 7" singles, the most sought-after of which is being given the reissue treatment by Italy's Groovin label. The real winner here is "Nisyan", an Arabic interpretation of blue-eyed soul that fixes a baggy, sun-kissed sensibility, ear-catching Moog solos and a killer groove. "La Ya-Hob" is, if anything, even baggier and dreamier, with Fakroun delivering touchy-feely vocals over exotic, Middle Eastern synthesizer lines and a rolling, soft touch jazz-funk groove. Both cuts are equally breezy and jaunty, lingering in the memory for hours after each rotation.

  2. Hooked On Your Love (John Morales unreleased edit) (8:13)
Review: Serious Philly boogie business: In 1979 the Aleem brothers teamed up with serial hit maker Leroy Burgess for this outstanding bass slapping floor burner. Listen closely and you'll hear a young Luther Vandross on backing vocals as the twins bounce off each other with their signature high ranges. Meanwhile on the B we have a previously unreleased edit from one of the most vital, direction shaping remixers of the time; John Morales. Expect nothing but 8 minutes of pure disco bliss. We're hooked on this!

  2. Free Your Mind (instrumental) (6:23)
  3. Free Your Mind (NJ mix) (9:01)
  4. Free Your Mind (bonus dub) (7:03)
Review: Fibre Foundation were hot stuff back in the mid-nineties, with DJs like Mark Farina in particular often caning "Free Your Mind" from the trio's 1995 EP. Like many tracks of that period, it's become something of hot slab of wax so Groovin has done the right thing and reissued it with four different mixes. The "UK Mix" is slick deep house with soul-fuelled chords finished off by some sweet vocal coos. If you're after something more bumpin, check the "NJ Mix" that channels Kerri Chandler, and a heavy bonus dub with more propulsive drum work.

  3. Set Your Mind To It (Gallifre Drums & club) (9:51)
  4. Set Your Mind To It (Winelight instrumental) (3:22)
Review: Quintessential Chicago deep house; Brett Wilcots' last release as Gallifre landed in 1990 and came with a sublime Mr Fingers edit. Reissued for the first time ever, the whole EP surges with soul and feeling as we're treated to versions for every occasion. Fingers gets his jazz on with a hypnotic, slightly dubby take (and an arousing sax solo), Gallifre provides a powerful percussion heavy dancefloor twist and a peppy original that really brings Jimmie Lee's vocals to life while the Winelight mix adds a soft sunset filter for a sensual finale. Timeless.

Deep House
  1. Jealousy & Lies (6:11)
  2. Jealousy & Lies (alternative dance mix) (5:28)
  3. Jealousy & Lies (instrumental) (4:43)
Review: For their latest dive into house history, Italian reissue specialists Groovin' Records have decided to take us back to London in 1988. "Jealousy & Lies" was one of the earliest solo singles by Julian Jonah, a producer who later found greater fame as part of 187 Lockdown. It remains a wonderfully evocative chunk of dreamy deep house, with Jonah's impassioned spoken word vocal riding jacking drums, a chunky bassline and synthesizer sounds reminiscent of Larry Heard's late 1980s work. There's also a more raw-sounding "Alternative Dance Mix" that throws additional drum machine percussion and some tasty piano riffs into the mix, as well as a vocal-free instrumental take that's close in sound and feel to the A-side version.

  4. Nocturne Seduction (6:10)
Review: Rewind to 1992: Italian DMC champ Andrea Gemolotto and Alfredo conspirator Leo Marras collide for the first of three rare and seminal deep house exercises that have matured perfectly. The Mr Fingers-at-Bora-Bora trumpet-in-space sensuality of "Lose Control", the wide warm struts of the In Dub We Trust mix, spacious dubby reflections of "Night Clerk", the measured strikes and layered humanised stutters of "Nocturne Seduction"... If you think these remastered sound blow minds today, consider how they blew heads clean off 24 years ago. Historical.

Review: The latest must-check missive from deep house reissue specialists Groovin' takes us back to 2007 and one of the most infectious, insatiable cuts in Osunlade's sprawling back catalogue. First featured on his Strictly Rhythm-released album "Elements Beyond", "Momma's Groove" features Osunlade adding his own evocative spoken word vocals to a low-down deep house groover crafted from disco-funk style bass, flanged guitar licks, jazzy sax solos and typically tribal drums. Over on side B there's a chance to Jimpster's "Hip Replacement Mix", which transforms Osunlade's killer cut into a rolling slab of immersive deep house haziness perfectly suited to heads-down peak-time plays.

Review: Groovin Records have dug deep t unearth this sleazy boogie and disco number from Plastic Pertrand. It's richly detailed with some killer synth work and a slow motion vocal that recalls when Blondie rapped on Rapture. The bass is super low slung and the claps inviting. It's a libidinous and steamy and the sort of tune that cannot fiat to get big reactions from the floor. As well as an extended version of the original, an instrumental is included for more late night lovers.

  3. It's Alright (7:33)
Review: Three words: stone, cold, classics. Taken from three of Gino's four only albums, you'll be hard pushed to find anything better on reissue this week. "Try It Out" (from his 1981 album Closer) has that fat plucked dust-biting bassline to die for and ultra-feelgood vocals. "Dancer" (from his 1979 album Outline) takes us to the races with its pacey piano pumps and relentless energy while "It's Alright" (from his 1982 album Face To Face) shows a more low-swung sultry vibe with a walking bassline that just won't quit. Do as Gino says and try them out... You won't be disappointed.

  4. How Do You Plead? (6:41)
Review: Before concentrating on his solo work as St Germain, Ludovic Navarre worked extensively with Didier Delasalle, a producer best known for his releases as Shazz, under a variety of pseudonyms. One of these was Soofle, and it's Navarre and Delesalle's sole EP under that moniker - 1993's "Nouveau" - that Groovin' Records has now decided to reissue. As you'd expect, there are plenty of nods towards dreamy deep house amongst the Motor City inspired cuts on show, with opener "Thrill" - where bubbly acid lines, hazy chords and lilting melodies ride a bustling groove - and the organ-sporting "Happy Cycle" particularly impressing. Also worth a look is closing cut, "How Do You Plead", which is arguably the most deep and melodious of the lot.

  4. House Music Will Never Die (Glenn Afro dub) (7:36)
Review: For their latest deep dive into the world of hard-to-find house classics, Italy's Groove Records take us back to 1996. "House Music Will Never Die" marked Glenn Underground's first collaboration with vocalist Cei-Bei (AKA Curtis Harman) and has long been considered one of the Chicagoan producer's finest releases. Wisely, Groove has decided against tinkering with a classic, instead serving up all four mixes from the original Cajual Records 12". Choose between the classic deep house soul of the GU Cei-Bei Foot Mix, the wonderfully summery, jazz guitar-laden CVO Bismark Hotel Mix, Mark Grant's brilliantly evocative, stretched-out interpretation, and a killer Afro Dub that makes great use of a heavy analogue bassline. All four versions are top notch.

Review: All hail master of musical ubiquity Bruno "Patchworks" Hovart, the funkiest world leader we truly need but don't deserve. Here we find the French stallion flexing back to a few cult gems in his vault. "Boogie" needs no introduction with its peppy organs and that massive Gemini Bros remix (complete with the salubrious slap bass) "You've Got To Have Freedom" takes us even further back in his catalogue to his first single under this alias. One of the most tasteful, soulful fix-ups Pharoah Sanders has ever had, it remains just as silky over 10 years later. So does Bruno's own jacking remix for that matter. Peace, love and boogie times.
