Review: Mysterious outfit from Los Angeles, California, Real Bad Man comes through with it's 4th release, this time a 12" with an all star tribute to the gods of P-Funk. Enlisting the talents of Hot Chip's Alexis Taylor dueting with Royal Trux's Jennifer Herrema...produced by Tim Goldsworthy, Afro-Futurist Clap! Clap! and Tropical Rhythm Kings The Mauskovic Dance Band, this limited edition (300 Black/200 White), vinyl only release, comes in a printed DISCO SLEEVE 500 with hand stamped white labels.
Review: Back in the 1990s, Pauline Henry was the voice behind the Chimes and their stunningly soulful mid-tempo hit, "Heaven". This 12", which is dedicated to the late, great Paul "Trouble" Anderson, boasts fresh, club-ready remixes of the singer's solo cover of that loved-up club classic. Masters At Work man Louie Vega handles the A-side, placing Henry's fine vocal above a bed of swinging NYC house beats, fluid piano motifs and string-laden chords. Arguably even better is DJ Spen and Reelsoul's flipside revision, a more electronic affair with jauntier synth flourishes, elongated organ solos and a bumpin' rhythm track.
Review: Adeen Records with another spectacular release. This time, they're offering up a double lp re-release of remixed classics of the imperial Lee "Scratch" Perry 1997dub techno infused album "TECHNOMAJIKAL. With stellar remixes from Camille and DJ Boring giving it an updated futuristic sound while keeping it still techno at heart.
