  1. The Jet Leg (feat Ryo Nakata (Osaka Monaurail)) (4:21)
  2. Wolf (4:03)
Review: We've yet to hear a record from QASB that isn't either sweet soul perfection or riotous, party-starting funk perfection. Predictably, "The Jet Leg", their latest must-have "45", is another heavyweight slab of revivalist funk-soul brilliance. The A-side title track is pure heat, with guest vocalist Ryo Nakata (or Osaka Monaurail fame) doing his best James Brown impression atop a bed of sweaty deep funk drums, rising horns, bluesy guitar solos and elongated Hammond organ chords. Flipside "Wolf" is equally as heavy and energetic, this time with dense, Latin-tinged percussion, loose-limbed drum breaks, jammed-out Clavinet riffs and more rousing horns catching the ear. Like the A-side, it's a belter!

Slugfest (limited 7")

Funk
  1. Slugfest (4:19)
  2. Yellow & Green (4:05)
Review: Fans of Osaka funk fusionists Stepak Takraw are spoilt this week with a deluge of musical goodness by the band arriving courtesy of Soul Garden. After spending an hour or so assessing the respective charms of these records from the crew, it's this Slugfest 7" that stands out in particular. Up top the title track pulls no punches, a slick lick of funk guitar riffage acting as the lead for the band to follow and lay down a taut, fast paced funk composition that leans on their well-honed talent for throwing cumbia elements into the mixer. "Yellow & Green" is there for those who prefer their funk to sound a bit more traditional.

Nightrunning
Cat: SG 051. Rel: 04 Apr 18
Broken Beat/Nu Jazz
  1. Nightrunning (4:01)
  2. Omo (4:23)
Review: As a member of Stepak-Takraw, Yoichi Takeuch has spent much of his career crafting material heavily influenced by 1970s Afrobeat. On this debut solo single he takes a different approach, crafting warm, sun-kissed and blissful grooves with the benefit of what sounds like an MPC workstation. Check first A-side "Nightrunning", a dreamy and decidedly Balearic affair where chopped-up vocal snippets and guitar motifs rise above a hip-hop-goes-polyrhythmic groove. There's a slightly jazzier feel to flipside "Omo", whose slack, post Tony Allen drum break is layered with chanted childrens' vocals, sun-bright guitar flourishes and toasty, head-in-the-clouds chords. It's hard to describe, but really rather good.
