Deep House
  1. Light My Fire (6:05)
  2. Moment In Marseille (4:13)
  3. Next Step 4wrd (9:14)
Review: There's been little new of note from Underground Resistance house band Timeline for some time, something that's doubly frustrating given the quality of their previous material. That includes this fine EP, which was first released in 2014 and now appears in stores again courtesy of a much-needed re-press. The highlight for UR aficionados and tech-jazz enthusiasts is undoubtedly epic flipside "Next Step 4wrd", a delightful chunk of sci-fi house rich in warm riffs, rising jazz horns and mazy synth solos. That said, plenty of people will gravitate towards the dewy eyed deep house soul of opener "Light My Fire", whose electric piano solos are superb, and the hypnotic dancefloor drowsiness of deep jazz-house number "Moment In Marseille".

Bare Essentials EP (180 gram vinyl 12")
Cat: DMT 09. Rel: 17 Feb 20
Minimal/Tech House
  1. Rock It (4:49)
  2. Lock N' Load (4:57)
  3. Cut I (5:42)
  4. Cut II (5:09)
  5. Cut III (5:20)
Review: The grooves are heavy and dubby but still resolutely house-oriented as William Caycedo steps up to Dungeon Meat with his first EP in a couple of years. "Rock It" perfects the lean and mean groove - just a nasty drum jack and a big subby bassline, and utterly infectious with it. "Lock N' Load" follows a similar trajectory, although functions more as a tool than a standalone track. "Cut I" is a little more bubbly in its demeanour while still following the formula of drums, bass and little else. "Cut II" has a sweet bassline that will hook the dancers in, while "Cut III" keeps the pressure up with its nagging hats and subtle rhythmic fills. This is one for the DJs, but don't be fooled - there's bags of attitude tucked within these stripped back jams.

  1. Apache Street (3:24)
  2. Michael's Incredible Twin (3:42)
Review: Secord time around for "wild west" funakteer Daytoner's "Apache Street" seven-inch, which has been in high demand since it first hit record stores in 2018. As the title suggests, both cut-and-paste workouts borrow heavily from the Incredible Bongo Band's "Apache", one of the foundation stones of hip-hop culture. The title track is a fine example of a mash-up that works, with Daytoner layering the horn stabs and vocals from Lou Rawls' "Dead End Street" over the famous "Apache" break. That break is prominent on side B, this time underpinning cheery horns, pianos, bass and guitars from the Skatalites' Ska classic "Beardman Ska". It's a simple idea expertly executed.

  1. In My Arms (extended mix) (6:16)
  2. In My Arms (instrumental) (6:15)
Review: It would be fair to say that there are few bigger contemporary disco producers than Purple Disco Machine. His particular brand of revivalist disco offers a near perfect balance of 1970s style instrumentation and contemporary dancefloor chops, thus delivering timeless tracks that guarantee good times for all those who hear them. "In My Arms" is a great example of this. It's authentic - walking bassline, swooping Salsoul strings, gospel-influenced piano riffs and so on - but also boasts builds and drops more associated with rush-inducing house anthems. Of the two versions it's the celebratory, full vocal "Extended Mix" that we'd recommend, though the instrumental take is pretty tidy too.

  2. Alumnia - "Views From A Blue Train" (Leo Mas & Fabrice On Air dub remix) (8:38)
Review: Paul 'Mudd' Murphy has been digging into the Claremont 56 archives of late, rustling around to find unreleased gems deserving of release. He shared some on the recent "Claremont 56 Editions" compilation and has decided to offer up more on this fine 12". The A-side 45 Thieves remix of Jack Cutter's "Serpentstrut" is particularly potent, with the Californian duo turning the track into a near 11-minute voyage through dubbed-out cosmic disco with undeniable 1970s art-rock flourishes. It's absolutely stunning all told, as is the spaced-out revision of Alumnia's "Views From A Blue Train" by Italian Balearic legends Leo Mas and Fabrice. Their "On Air Dub" is a slow, low-slung masterpiece best consumed under the influence of something stronger than water.

  2. Aqua Marina (5:23)
  3. Hostages Of The Deep (5:17)
Review: Ilian Tape overlords the Zenker Brothers have long been fans of Surgeon's brand of no-holds-barred, industrial-strength techno. While the Birmingham-born producer has previously played live at label events, this blistering three-tracker marks his first outing for the Munich based imprint. Interestingly, opener "The Golden Sea" is arguably a little dreamier and warmer than much of his output, with melancholic chords and bubbly electronic motifs riding a forthright and intergalactic techno groove. Elsewhere, "Aqua Marina" wraps more alien-sounding lead lines and shimmering chords around a more stripped-back, redlined rhythm track and "Hostages Of The Deep" sounds like a far-sighted fusion of classic Surgeon, Drexciya and Livity Sound.

Review: The latest drop on SlapFunk finds a three-strong cast bringing their A-game to the label that knows how to balance the chunkiest house with the tightest minimal funk. Samuel Deep is sounding fierce on "SlapTrax", an uptempo workout peppered with zippy FX and playful sound design. Ingi Visions then gets into a wriggling mood with the tracky, tremendous "Visionair Wan", while Julian Alexander brings a punchy strain of tech-house to the table for "Macrodyn". Ingi returns again for "Visionair Tu", another hopped-up hoedown full of twitchy percussion and a cheeky bassline to get bodies wiggling with approval.

  1. Human Spirit (6:50)

  3. Chocolate Machine (7:29)
  4. Steel Tabernacle (7:37)
Review: For their latest delve into the archives, Music From Memory offshoot Second Circle has decided to focus on Sandoz, a celebrated Richard H. Kirk solo project that generally joined the dots between dub and then contemporaneous styles of electronic music. The four tracks contained here were originally released on the earliest Sandoz 12" singles (1992-93), all of which are now frustratingly hard to find. Kirk's healthy obsession with Afro-futurism can be heard in the tribal chants, dub-wise bass and glassy-eyed electronics of opener "Human Spirit", while "Beam" sounds like a deeper, dreamier take on the Yorkshire Bleep sound he helped to create. "Chocolate Machine" is another deep, drowsy and melodious workout rich in clanking percussion hits, and "Steel Tabernacle" is Sweet Exorcist style "clonk" with added ghostly melodies.

  2. BIG Poppa's Got A Brand New Bag (instrumental) (3:58)
Review: When it comes to mash-ups and unofficial reworks, sometimes the simplest ideas are the ones that make for the most effective versions. That's certainly the case here, as Soul Mates main man Amerigo Gazaway crafts a fresh slab of funk/hip-hop fusion out of three key elements: a legendary Biggie Smalls acapella, sections lifted from James Brown classic "Papa's Got a Brand New Bag" and his own head-nodding hip-hop beats. There's not much more to it than that, but the resultant cut, "Big Poppa's Got a Brand New Bag", sounds like a guaranteed dancefloor winner. The A-side version is the full vocal take, while the flipside is a Biggie-free instrumental mix.

Review: Zoo Look follow up on their welcome return (the Similar Steps EP on Lost Palms) with this choice drop for Lazare Hoche, the Parisian bastion of all things deep and housey. The Look have lost none of their charm as you can hear on the sultry and seductive "Sight Unseen", while "The Reason" sees them exploring dubby realms to enchanting effect. "Tranmission7" brings an intriguing broken beat flavour to the rhythm section, capturing a mood somewhere between techno, electro and dubstep and dipping it in honey for a sweet finish. Then Malin Genie steps up with a masterful remix of "Sight Unseen" that works some Detroitian flavours into the mix to great effect.

Review: REPRESS ALERT: After a strong opening bout, Chubby! steps back in the ring with more quality-assured deep house roundhouses from heavyweight prize fighters. Trinidadian Deep did such a fine job on the first Chubby! they've invited him back to unfurl a transcendent wooze of tumbling percussion and heady organ tones. Vincent Floyd steps up on remix duties, turning "Rebel Fract" into a more sharply rendered strutter buoyed by the original's radiant synths. Detroit don Javonntte drops in on the B side with the utterly classy "Jazzy Day", which funks and bumps with an unmistakable Motor City ruffness and some gorgeous melodic flexing over the top. Patrice Scott then steps in for a remix that finds the veteran producer wriggling into a stunning house shuffle with a piano line to die for.

Review: Lion & Lamb Records emerges from the London-based community of underground electronic heads orbiting the venue of the same name. Considering the quality of the events, you can drop the needle on this various artists joint safe in the knowledge the same high standards apply. The killer new project from Voigtmann, V3000 is up first with the ear-snagging machine funk of "The Man Who Belongs To The Horizon", before Alex Celler drops in some utterly cheeky, wriggling micro house naughtiness to add some spice to the after party. Andre King brings things back to an electro tip for the edgy sci-fi noir of "Floating Sensation" and Unai Trotti restores the balance with some boisterous 4/4 bleep business.

Review: As with its predecessors, the latest missive from Youandewan's Small Hours imprint gathers together a quartet of cuts from a variety of unheralded artists and rising stars. The main man offers up the deep, drowsy, '90s tech-house warmth of "Loophole" on side A, alongside Monochrome vs Velasco's "Paranoid", which is a similarly starry, sci-fi-flecked skip through intergalactic deep house chunkiness. Over on side B, Robin Ordell impresses via the clanking, bass-propelled tech-funk of "Rainbowitz", while Darren Allen brilliantly joins the dots between deep house, jazz and tech-house electronics on the imaginative and enjoyable "Strange World".

  1. Apache (4:56)
  2. Bongo Rock (2:38)
Review: Back in 2011, Shawn Lee recorded an album in tribute to the legendary Incredible Bongo Band - whose extra-percussive cuts and cover versions played a key role in the early development of hip-hop - under the name the Incredible Tabla Band. Here, two of the more sought-after cuts from the hard-to-find set appear on seven-inch for the first time. Lee's take on "Apache", in which Indian instrumentation, Hammond organ licks and a touch of psych-rock fuzziness are thrown into the mix with incendiary results - is a guaranteed dancefloor hit. That said, his "Tabla Rock" take on "Bongo Rock" is arguably even better, and certainly a little more revolutionary in terms of the sounds you hear. It's naturally rooted in bongo and tabla-powered funk, but attractively veers off script at key moments.

Review: From the word go, this EP from Yoyaku regular Janeret (real name Mickail Jeanneret) feels like one of his finest collection of cuts to date. Title track "Critical" is simply superb: a chunky, sweat-soaked fusion of bumpin' deep house grooves, wiggly acid lines and Detroit style sci-fi techno sounds that's as ear-pleasing as it is floor-friendly. Voightmann's accompanying remix is great too, with the German producer re-casting the track as a woozy trip through deep space tech-house goodness. Elsewhere on the EP, "Journey" is a bolder, warmer and more percussive deep house cut rich in techno style electronics and "Axis" sits somewhere between deep electro and jacking Chicago house.

It's super sweet soul music with raw grooves that can get any party started topped with vocals from Willie Hutch finishing things off in real style.

Review: The Street Knowledge "45 series" appears to have been set up to educate heads on original 1990s hip-hop jams, or at the very least deliver fresh pressings of some seriously classic cuts. This inaugural release begins with Warren G and Nate Dogg's 1994 heater "Regulate", a deep and seductive number that makes great use of samples from Michael McDonald's teary blue-eyed soul classic "I Keep Forgetting". Flip to the B-side and you'll find Luniz 1995 hit "I Got 5 On It", a cut that's been bitten, reworked and re-made umpteen times in the 24 years that have passed since it was first released. As this reissue proves, the Oakland duo's original version is still streets ahead of the rest.

  2. Phreek - "Everybody Loves A Good Thing" (JN More Of A Good Thing mix) (12:59)
Review: The latest edition in Joey Negro's ongoing "Remixed With Love" series sees the veteran producer turning his hand to two tracks from the 1978 debut album by Phreek, an all-star studio band helmed by Patrick Adams and Leroy Burgess. Side A boasts a superb revision of "I'm A Big Freak (R*U*1*2)" in which the Z Records boss turns an already wild cut into a synth-laden freak-out of epic proportions (think crazy synth solos, heady party atmosphere and urgent vocals). On the flip you'll find an arguably even better version of "Everybody Loves A Good Thing" that places Leroy Burgess' killer lead vocal right at the heart of the action. Joey Negro's extended mix is very respectful of Adams' original version, but that's no bad thing.

Review: There's always a sense of reverent elation around a new drop from Theo Parrish, and he's not disappointing on this latest joint. Reports suggest this is the precursor to a new album, and there's a classic feel to this track that hints at very exciting times ahead. Parrish's sparks shine oh-so bright when he's sparring with the right vocalist, and Maurissa Rose seems to be giving him the right inspiration on "This Is For You". He's created the kind of understated soul statement that inhabits some of his most treasured albums, using a raw and simple drum machine backing to achingly beautiful key refrains that melt around Rose's voice on the vocal A side, and give rise to a sublime instrumental version on the flip.

Review: Over the last few years, Aroop Roy has offered up some of the most interesting and dynamic re-edits around, variously turning his attention to disco, boogie and vintage Brazilian jazz-funk, soul and dancefloor samba. Here he turns his scalpel to a couple of heaters towards the jazzier end of the jazz-funk spectrum. Head first for A-side "Reach N Search", a spiraling slab of horn-heavy dancefloor jazz underpinned by a heavy funk groove, before turning your attention to flipside jam "Monterey". This is arguably the more accessible and ear catching of the pair, thanks in no small part to the original cut's heavy jazz-funk/disco-funk fusion vibes.

Review: All the stops have been pulled out for this big new remix package on Redux Inc.

With a new keyboard solo by the talented Johnny Tomlinson (best known for working with Bonobo) and a boost by the elusive Robbie Casa Blanco, the result is a real contemporary disco banger with lush strings and a soul train groove that never lets up. Dr Packer then tackles Steve Arrington's 1985 classic, "Feel So Real", adding layers of rugged arps and rooted drums that work it up into a grooving dancefloor favourite. Melba Moore's previously album only "You Got Me Loving You" then gets an extended Dr Packer rework with some marching drums, funky bass and sumptuous strings.

Review: Glitterbox and Defected big cheese Simon Dunmore has long been a fan of Lemelle's 1982 boogie killer "You Got Something Special", and it was reportedly his idea to reissue the track. It was - as ever from Dunmore - a smart move. In its original form (track two), the cut is a near perfect example of soulful, club-ready boogie - all sparkling electronic melodies, loose drum machine beats, eyes-closed guitar motifs, synth-bass and sing-along vocals. This time round, it comes accompanied by the original flipside Instrumental Mix and two fresh revisions. On the A-side you'll find a sweaty, tooled-up edit from Aussie scalpel scene stalwart Dr Packer that drags the track further towards boogie-house territory, while the B-side boasts a more traditional (and reverential) re-edit from KON.

His flows work perfectly over Dre's low-slung beat, which makes great use of smoky instrumental samples from what sounds like the soundtrack of a 1970s spy thriller. Over on the flip you'll find Too Short's lesser-celebrated "Bad Ways", which first surfaced on the long-serving Los Angeles mic man's 1996 album "Gettin' It (Album Number Ten)" and makes use of elements from Parliament/Funkadelic classic "Flashlight".

Over on the flip it's all about DJ Quik's 1992 Profile Records single "Just Lyke Compton", an even more laidback and groovy affair that pays tribute to the notorious LA neighbourhood that became the focal point of the enormous "gangsta" hip-hop scene of the 1990s.

His latest outing on Neroli is a terrific example of this, with title track "Some Sweet Ting" offering a tactile, life-affirming journey through starry synths, twinkling piano solos, jazzy bass, layered percussion and huggable chords. Flip to the B-side for the poignant, enveloping intergalactic deep house brilliance of "Atmospheric Funk" and "Sounds of the Rebel", whose darting synth-bass and glistening lead lines are as colourful as the accompanying pads are deep.

  2. Walk (Lord Funk & Moar remix) (4:07)
Review: The latest must-have release from the Boogie Butt camp boasts a suitable obscure chunk of boogie/jazz-funk fusion from 1982. "Walk" was the sole release from the Sam Culley Band and has become something of a collector's item owing to its warming fusion of slap-bass, dreamy synth chords, soulful vocal phrases, jazzy guitars and rich horns. This time round the sought-after original version is accompanied by a remix by Boogie Butt members Lord Funk & Moar. Their revision is a little tighter rhythmically, with extra contemporary weight, but otherwise sticks closely to the Sam Culley Band's excellent original version.

  1. East Of The Apple (The 'Just A Little Different' mix) (5:10)
  2. Wave (Al Kent remix) (9:57)
  3. East Of The Apple (Al Kent remix) (8:17)
Review: Kalita's latest must-have 12" mines a notoriously obscure and hard-to-find private press seven-inch single, NYC outfit Cross Island's 1978 45 "East of the Apple". It's that record's alternative "Just a Little Different" mix that everyone's after, so that takes pride of place on side A. It's a percussive, low-slung affair - all heavy bass, Kong style Latin hand percussion and deep electric piano motifs - topped off by vocals espousing the virtues of Long Island. Glaswegian re-edit king Al Kent offers up an extended, more celebratory revision of the track on the flip, stretching out the intro drums before unleashing the song's more celebratory, life-affirming musical elements. He also delivers a remix of previously unreleased cut "Wave", a bustling disco-funk number full of crunchy Clavinet lines and soaring disco orchestration.

  1. Rev Ray L Weaver - "We Are Family" (4:31)
  2. Pink Family - "Don't Give Your Life Away" (AI-Tone extended mix) (5:00)
Review: Rain & Shine's "Soul Is My Salvation" project is something of an epic: an eight-part series of "dancefloor friendly gospel songs" curated by veteran Chicagoan DJ Tone B Nimble (real name Anthony Fields). This first part - "Chapter 1" - opens with a sublime, gospel style sing-along cover of Sister Sledge classic "We Are Family" that sounds like it was actually recorded in church. It's brilliant, life-affirming stuff. Over on side B, scalpel fiend Al-Tone offers up an extended version of obscure New Zealand group The Pink Family's 1979 cut "Don't Give Your Life Away" - a warm-hearted - some would say righteous - disco workout that's almost as good as the A-side. We await the next volume in the series with baited breath.

  1. I Love You (4:15)
  2. House Of Fun & Love (3:01)
Review: Discs Of Fun and Love is a London-based label run by Miche and Frederika, who present their sophomore release by Sweet Mixture. A fully licensed and remastered issue of this 'holy grail crossover record' from 1973, "I Love You" is an evocative ballad, followed by "House of Fun and Love" which is good old fashioned soul music the way it was intended. The original is said to be going for exorbitant sums on the second hand market in the last few years. Needless to say, the label is incredibly pleased to re-release this, fully licenced from the owners and remastered by Grammy nominated mastering house the Carvery.

  1. The Unemployed - "Funky Thing" (part 1 - Professor Shorthair remix) (4:24)

Review: Somewhat predictably, this double-dose of party-hearty Professor Shorthair remixes is as colourful and vibrant as the purple marbled vinyl seven-inch onto which the tracks are pressed. On side A he does his thing with The Unemployed's rugged 1970 funk-rock jam "Funky Thing", beefing up the beats for modern dancefloors while adding a choice selection of scratched-in samples. Arguably even better is his rework of Lee Dorsey's "Occapella", a sweet, lo-slung groover that gets re-cast as a dubbed-out chunk of hazy, bass-heavy hip-hop soul rich in echo-laden vocal snippets, snatches of rap and hazy horns. As Dorsey's vocal says, it's "finger-snapping good"!

Review: Electric Mojo is on a mission to delve into the history of electronic music and serve up some of its best moments. This new one is just that - a classic b-boy DJ tool that's linked to the first wave of breakdancing, and will likely turn all who hear it into aspiring body-poppers. First up, "122BPM" is a crisp future-retro electro tune with bubbling leads and warm, smeared chords that oozes essential feels. "130BPM" has wobbly toms and crashing hits that make for perfect body music. In the right hands, these tasteful tunes will easily become weapons of mass dance floor destruction.

Review: Absolute gold from Earth Wind & Fire that was only ever included as filler track on their 1977 All N All album, it's been a staple sample across house and hip-hop ever since, utilised creatively by everyone from Tribe Called Quest and Danny Krivit. Previously only 80 seconds long, Fryer has managed to unearth a previously unreleased extended version that really digs into those honeyed harmonies. "My Love" takes us four years forward to their 13th album Raise! where the musical emphasis has developed from all-out vocal soul to a more restrained rare groove feel. One per customer, AOTN aren't messing around on this one.

Review: This one came our back in January but sold out in quick fashion, so a limited edition repress is now here but likely to be gone just as quick. And it's easy to see why as this latest Breaks & Beats offering takes on edits of two massive James Brown classics. Extended with DJ friendly breaks and elongated grooves, the Godfather of Soul's fine original is made into a much more useable tool. Jimmy Smith classic "Root Down" gets similar treatment on the flip as it starts and ends with some very workable drum loops that will liven up any set and party.

  1. Straight Jacket (4:10)
  2. Get Funky (3:52)
Review: When it comes to classic hip-hop cuts, the Old Chillin' series of seven-inch singles has you covered. The mysterious crew behind the series has previously offered up gems by Big Daddy Kane, Nas and Cyprus Hill. Here they turn their attention to the bulging back catalogue of New York twosome the Beatnuts. Both tracks are taken from the pair's fine 1994 debut album. A-side "Straight Jacket" is a bona fide NYC hip-hop club classic, with the duo adding tight raps to a drowsy but dancefloor-friendly "Golden era" beat. Flipside "Get Funky" is a little more densely layered and laidback in tone, though it's still lively enough to suggest that it's worthy of regular club spins again.

Review: Stee Downes is one of contemporary house music's most prominent vocalists and here he lends his silky tones to Freerange, Defected and OM Records associate, Lovebirds for this new one on South Street. "Want You In My Soul" is a mix of old and new, where disco percussion and cosmic synths nestle alongside a mid tempo house groove with plenty of warmth. Downes' vocals are the loved up icing on the romantic groove cake. Flip over for the "Summer In London Edit" - a more stripped back and direct version, perfect for outdoor stages as the sun beats down.

Review: When it comes to offering up seven-inch singles of tracks taken from classic or sought-after albums, Dynamite Cuts has an impressive track record. They're at it again here, this time mining Roy Ayers and Wayne Henderson's 1978 jazz-funk/disco fusion masterpiece "Step Into Our Life". On the A-side you'll find the languid, loose and groovy title track, a memorable affair in which dueling vibraphone and trumpet solos make merry atop a head-nodding, toe-tapping jazz-funk groove. Flipside "For Real" is a little more energetic and loved-up, with touchy-feely vocals, husling slap-bass and sci-fi synths to the fore.

Review: French producer Nathan Melja has amassed a spotless discography on the likes of Mister Saturday Night, Antinote and Opal Tapes, and now debuts on Kalahari Oyster Cult with another terrific offering. "Synesthesia" is futuristic sci-fi techno with shiny synth lines and a hurried kick pattern that gets you on your toes while the bassline burrows deep. TTT affiliate and Incienso co-founder Anthony Naples steps up with the first remix. His version is more dreamy thanks to the array of background pads, then closing things out is Pariah with a punch groove that leaves the original's prying lead intact. Essential stuff.

Review: It's back to 1988 as Athens Of The North reissues the impossibly good "Back Together Again" from Jean & Trevor, a golden lovers rock classic that is actually a cover version of Roberta Flack and Donny Hathaway's original. It's a gorgeously hazy cut with some pretty advanced-at-the-time synths and effects on top of an organic rhythm section and sliding guitar work. IMF Players then offer up "Dub Again" on the flip which delves deeper into dub science with equally compelling results.

Review: So far we've yet to hear a duff track or release from Flamingo Pier, a hybrid Anglo-Kiwi crew whose vibrant and colourful music combines a plethora of musical influences in pursuit of disco-fired dancefloor gold. There's tons of goodness to be found throughout their latest collection of cuts, from the drowsy, Holy Ghost style deep disco warmth of opener "Tripping Up", to the sprightly '80s electrofunk brilliance of "Boogie Meltdown". Sandwiched in between you'll find two more heaters: the kaleidoscopic, synth-heavy nu-disco cheeriness of "Indigo" and "Jungle Groove", a tight and throbbing proto-house number that sounds like the missing link between Paul Simpson and Escort.

Review: Apparently DJ Harvey and Lovebirds have been hammering these "personal edits" from the Sirsounds crew in recent DJ sets. Listening to the clips, it's easy to work out why: they're a cut above the rest, edit-wise. There's a good variety of sounds and styles on show, from the stuttering drums, blissful guitars, dewy-eyed vocal snippets and rich boogie synths of "Love Me Right (Version)", to the eyes-closed synth solos and driving disco-funk grooves of quirky closing cut "What Does It Take". Our pick of the bunch though has to be the effortlessly eccentric Italian electro-funk insanity of "SASA", which sounds a little like it could be a lesser-known outing by Tullio De Piscopo (though don't quote us on that).

Review: Soul Junction's latest release brings together two sought-after heavy soul cuts from the studio of the Poindexter Brothers: their own 1969 heater "What I Did In The Street (I Should Have Done At Home)" - a sweet, Vibraphone-sporting slab of rasping, full-throated, horn-heavy sixties soul just dripping with emotion - and a killer cut they produced a year earlier for singer Vivian Copeland. You'll find that song, "Chaos In My Heart", on the A-side. Originally released on Bell, it's an attractive and additive mid-tempo number in which Copeland's fine vocals come supported by low-register horns, shuffling soul grooves and some suitably heavenly backing vocals.

  4. Ugetting Down (6:33)
Review: Glenn Davis' first outing on F*CLR Music, 2018's "Body & Soul EP", was something of a slept-on gem: a four-track collection of warm, groovy and musically intricate deep house capable of warming the cockles of even the stoniest of hearts. If anything, this belated follow-up is even better. "Namida (Tears Of Happiness)" is both superb and sublime: a spacey chunk of jazz-flecked futurist deep house rich in Latin-tinged drums, Detroit style sci-fi synths and chords that are so positive and life-affirming that you might want to marry them. Ashley Beedle and Darren Morris don the Afrikanz On Marz alias to deliver two top-drawer remixes: a decidedly cosmic, intergalactic "real" disco remake (the "remix") and an even more spacey, stripped-back "Dub". The latter is almost as inspired as Davis' original, which is saying something.
