Soul
  1. Sweet Thing (4:27)
  2. My Baby's Outta Sight (Amen!) (4:30)
Review: Some four years after making his debut with crossover soul gem 'Love Can Last Forever' - the first release on occasional Timmion Records offshoot Styleart, no less -Fred (real name Frederik Lof) finally returns for round two. This time, he's joined forces with Timmion's in-house revivalist 60s soul and funk band, Cold Diamond & Mink, who return to base following a surprise outing on San Francisco's Ubiqiuty Records. A-side 'Sweet Thing' lives up to its title, with Lof's slick, high-register vocals rising above a deliciously positive backing track rich in hazy horns, sweeping strings, and a nostalgic soul groove. Over on the flip you'll find instrumental number 'My Baby's Outta Sight', which appears to be a languid, vocal-free take on the sublime A-side.

Soul
  1. Scorpio Man Theme (3:58)
  2. Journey To The Bottom (4:28)
Review: Giving Nicole a rare night off, inimitable troupe The Soul Investigators team up with killer flautist Ernie Hawks for two impeccable instrumentals. "Scorpio Man Theme" is all slinky 70s cinematica with a wry nod towards Lalo Schifrin while "Journey To The Bottom" adopts a more languid perspective with slower beats, a smouldering groove and a flute line that takes us right down to the bottom of our souls and right back up again. Beautiful.

The Scorpio Walk
  1. The Scorpio Walk (4:54)
  2. Message Of Love (4:01)
Review: Finnish revivalist funk combo the Soul Investigators are no strangers to collaboration, having previously provided backing for Nicole Willis, Myron and Ernie Hawks. Here, they once again join forces with the latter for two more chunks of instrumental funk and soul goodness. A-side "Scorpio Walk" is the kind of cut that should come with its own named dance; a shuffling, mid-tempo funk affair that layers Spaghetti Western guitar solos and fluttering flute lines over a backing track rich in flanged guitar licks, bustling bass guitar and on-point drum breaks. Flipside "Message of Love" is an altogether deeper and more dewy-eyed affair, with woozy backing vocals and electric piano solos rising above a shuffling groove.

  1. The Scorpio Walk

  3. Bag Full Of Miracles
  4. Street Of Tears
  5. Windy City Blues
  6. Scorpio Man Theme
  7. Cold Turkey Time
  8. Journey To The Bottom
Review: Ernie Hawks is the occasional artistic alias of virtuoso flautist and trombonist Erno Haukkala, a Helsinki-based musician best known for his membership of long-serving Finnish funk combo the Soul Investigators. Fittingly, his debut solo album was produced in cahoots with the long-running band. Throughout, his band-mates provide brilliant backing for his languid trombone solos, jaunty flute lines and - on rare occasions - wild harmonica playing. It's a very enjoyable and impressive set, all told, with Haukkala's compositions variously drawing influence from classic soul, Cymande, Ennio Morricone's "Spaghetti Western" soundtracks and the higher quality end of the library music spectrum. Naturally, it's all brilliantly played and produced with an emphasis on gentle mood enhancement.

  10. I Can't Love You Anymore (feat Pratt) (4:35)
Review: Fast-rising New York soul singer Carlton Jumel Smith continues his successful partnership with Timmion house band Cold Diamond & Mink via a debut album that sounds like it could have been recorded in the early 1970s rather than 2019. Smith's lyrics and effortlessly soulful vocal delivery take centre stage throughout, though it's the faithfully fuzzy grooves, punchy horn lines and languid, delay-laden guitar motifs provided by his storied backing band that make the album a real winner. Highlights are plentiful throughout, from the loved-up sweetness of "This Is What Love Looks Like!" and Motown-influenced stomp of "We're All We Got", to the slack-tuned drum breaks and bittersweet messages of "I Can't Love You Anymore (feat Pratt)" and the cheery goodness of "Remember Me". In a word: superb.

Ain't That Love
  1. Carlton Jumel Smith, Cold Diamond & Mink - "Ain't That Love" (4:25)
  2. Cold Diamond & Mink - "Ain't That Love" (instrumental) (4:25)
Review: Like Daptone house band the Dap-Kings, Timmion's go-to combo Cold Diamond and Mink are absolute masters at delivering revivalist soul and funk cuts that offer authentically old sounds and fuzzy production with new beats, grooves and melodies. They're at it again here with regular collaborator Carlton Jumel Smith. As usual, you'll find the full version on the A, with Smith delivering a raw, impassioned lead vocal above the Finnish band's languid, sweet, sixties-style soul backing track. That instrumental can be enjoyed in all its jazzy, sun-kissed, horn-tooting beauty on side B. As with their other instrumentals, it's near perfect.

Soul
  1. Carlton Jumel Smith - "Remember Me" (feat Cold Diamond & Mink) (4:09)
  2. Cold Diamond & Mink - "Remember Me" (4:18)
Review: "Remember Me" was one of the most effervescent and up-tempo moments on Carlton Jumel Smith's 2019 album "1634 Lexington Avenue", so it's terrific to see Timmion giving the song a seven-inch single release. Backed by in-house Timmion band Cold Diamond & Mink, New York's modern "Mr Soul" delivers a scintillating lead vocal above a rousing 1960s soul instrumental laden with killer bass, sustained horns and bustling breakbeats. It comes accompanied by Cold Diamond and Mink's instrumental version, which as usual with Timmion is exclusive to this "45" release. If fresh, sixties-sounding soul is your thing, you need this in your life.

  1. Carlton Jumel Smith - "Help Me (Save Me From Myself)" (feat Cold Diamond & Mink) (3:31)
  2. Cold Diamond & Mink - "Help Me (Save Me From Myself)" (instrumental) (3:34)
Review: Since first joining forces with Timmion's in-house band Cold Diamond & Mink two years ago, New York singer Carlton Jumel Smith has delivered a string of sublime singles and a must-check album, 2019's "1634 Lexington Avenue". It's from that set that his latest single is taken. "Help Me (Save Me From Myself)" is another emotive, 1960s soul style gem in which Smith passionately cries for help from a mystery woman over a typically on-point Cold Diamond & Mink backing track rich in hazy horns, wah-wah guitars and a laidback mid-tempo groove. The quality of the group's playing and production is laid bare in all its glory on the flipside instrumental version, which is naturally exclusive to this "45" release. Like the rest of Smith's singles, this is a must-have.

Soul
  1. Carlton Jumel Smith - "I'd Better" (feat Cold Diamond & Mink) (3:25)
  2. Cold Diamond & Mink - "I'd Better" (instrumental) (3:23)
Review: So far, every collaboration between Timmion house band Cold Diamond & Mink and rising star Carlton Jumel Smith has been soulful gold. It goes without saying that their latest hook-up, "I'd Better", is another future soul classic. On the A-side version (taken from Smith's debut album "1634 Lexington Avenue"), Smith provides a raw, heartfelt and impassioned vocal over Cold Diamond & Mink's formidable backing track. This can be heard in all its glory on side B, where their 1960s soul style drum breaks, guitars, bass and fuzzy horns take centre stage.

I Can't Love You Anymore
  1. Carlton Jumel Smith - "I Can't Love You Anymore" (4:35)
  2. Cold Diamond & Mink - "I Can't Love You Anymore" (instrumental) (4:34)
Review: Since making his debut back in the early 1990s, Carlton Jumel Smith has periodically popped up on a variety of soulful house and modern soul releases. Here the little-known vocalist takes a different approach, re-casting himself as a throaty, James Brown influenced '70s soul singer. He's at his heartfelt, full-throttle best on "Can't Love You Any More", a deliciously heavy and authentic chunk of Southern-fried deep soul complete with additional falsetto parts from fellow singer Pratt. The key to the track's success is the fantastic backing provided by Cold Diamond & Mink. Proof is provided on the flip via the band's effortlessly good instrumental take.

Love Our Love Affair
  1. Carlton Jumel Smith - "Love Our Love Affair" (feat Cold Diamond & Mink) (4:05)
  2. Cold Diamond & Mink - "Love Our Love Affair" (instrumental) (4:03)
Review: If you're a talented soul vocalist who wants an authentically fuzzy late 1960s sound, you could do worse than join forces with Timmion Records' in-house backing band, Cold Diamond & Mink. They're in fine form here providing admirable backing to rising star Carlton Jumel Smith. "Love Our Love Affair" is undeniably attractive, with Smith's confident and emotion-rich vocal rising above the band's hazy horns, languid trumpet solos, sun-bright guitar licks and lolloping, hip-hop style funk-soul beats. As is customary, the band's tidy instrumental version can be found - and enjoyed - on the flip.

Review: Chicano Batman's Bardo Martinez appears for his third release, and he's up on Finland's Timmion Records with what is surely the hottest 7" of August 2017. Alongside The Soul Investigators on the instruments, and Ernie Hawks on the vocals, "Bad Education" is nothing but a sweet soul gem that truly touches both heart and soul with its pleasant melodic twists and vocal peaks. There instrumental, as you'd imagine, works the flutes and the guitars mighty well in parallel to the track's energetic beat groove. It's a sweet as it gets! 1 per customer y'all!

Soul
  1. Wheels Turning (4:05)
  2. Wheels Turning (instrumental) (4:14)
Review: Over the years Timmion's in-house band, Cold Diamond & Mink, has provided richly funky, soulful and formidably fuzzy musical backing for a dizzying array of American and European vocalists and, on rare occasions, jazz soloists. For their latest venture, the revivalist combo has reunited with "Nordic Americana and neo-folk" twosome Pratt & Moody (Tuomo Prattala and Markus Nordenstreng), for the first time since 2018's Words, Words, Words. As you might expect, 'Wheels Turning' is a heartfelt, slow-motion affair, with the duo's impassioned blue-eyed soul vocals rising above glistening guitars and a relaxed, laidback beat. The beauty of Cold Diamond and Mink's backing track can be savoured in full on the flipside instrumental take.
