Review: Following on from the excellent "Scene In Mirage" reissue that broke O Yuki Conjugate to a whole new crowd, Emotional Rescue return to the archives of the over-looked Nottingham "dirty ambient" outfit. Their second LP "Into Dark Water", originally released in 1987, is just as powerful as the first - a hypnagogic journey fuelled by a global stew of sound, feeding into elegant, evocative pieces. Fans of classic Jon Hassell will find much to enjoy here, but equally those appreciating the exotic post punk undercurrents of 23 Skidoo et al will easily find themselves drawn to the likes of "Ba-makala". Stunning, borderless musings from a hidden treasure of the UK's post-industrial heritage.

  1. Marcia Maria - "Amigo Branco" (3:30)
  2. Simone - "Tudo Que Voce Podia Ser" (2:16)
Review: The latest volume in Mr Bongo's brilliant Brazil 45 series offers up a pair of MPB gems that have previously never featured on seven-inch before. Side A is all about Marcia Maria's 1978 cut "Amigo Branco", a disco-era interpretation of Djalma Dias' 1974 track "Nada Sei De Preconceito". Maria's cover is jaunty, colourful and ear-catching, pushing jaunty organs, sharp horns and spacey synth lines towards the ear alongside her passionate, full-throated lead vocal. Over on side B you'll find "Tudo Que Voce Podia Ser", an overlooked gem plucked from MPB artist Simone's self-titled 1973 debut LP. More rooted in samba, it's a lilting, string-laden chunk of emotional sweetness.

  4. Second Face (6:48)
Review: Henry Hyde is back for his fourth outing on his own NorthSouth label, but this time marks a shift as he holds court over the full run of the wax with a selection of refined floor tweakers draped in illustrious swathes of synths. Things kick off in dazzling style with the bright white chords and crafty fills of "I Heard You Like To Squelch" before the snappy electro flair of "My Function" keeps the uplifting vibe but swaps out the rhythm. "Slick Rick" is a freaky minimal cut with some wobbly bass wielded with deadly precision, and then the record rounds off on the shuffling micro funk of "Second Face".

  1. Concerning Irregular Figures (4:41)
  2. Exit Strategy (4:58)
  3. Glove Box (4:19)
  4. Glove Box (Assembler Code Rewind remix) (4:43)
Review: The 20th year of Billy Nasty's Electrix label kicks off in style with this essential slab of mutant electro from the mighty London Modular Alliance. There's a razor-sharp focus to the drums on "Concerning Irregular Figures", but it's offset by the warmth of bass synth to capture a mood somewhere between early Radioactive Man and Skanfrom. "Exit Strategy" takes things in a freakier direction with plenty of errant blips and squiggles from the group's vast array of gear. "Glove Box" has a darker tone that nods to vintage Dopplereffekt, which Assembler Code's "Rewind Remix" twist things up into a pacey workout that maintains the dread-filled atmosphere perfectly.

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.

Review: Since debuting on Private Persons in 2017, Russian duo Locked Club has gone on to release well received material on TRAM Planet and, more recently, Boys Noize. Here they return to the Private Persons fold with their first EP for the imprint in two years. Fans of no-holds-barred, industrial strength electro/techno fusion should check the brain-melting insanity of funk-fuelled opener "Russian Banya" and "WC", a buzzing, lo-fi electro cut that's as urgent and energetic as a panicked commuter legging it to catch the last train home. Elsewhere, "Whisper" is a strobe-lit chunk of electroclash revivalism and "So Funky" is a serviceable slab of electronic body music.

  1. The Unemployed - "Funky Thing" (part 1 - Professor Shorthair remix) (4:24)
  2. Lee Dorsey - "Occapella" (Professor Shorthair remix) (3:26)
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: 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: While you'll find plenty of experienced composers and producers on A Strangely Isolated Place's quietly impressive roster of artists, the Californian label is also excellent at showcasing new talents. They're at it again here, offering up a debut from previously unheard Sardinian artist Blinkar Fran Norr. The eight tracks tend towards the more becalmed, meditative and immersive end of the ambient spectrum, with Norr prioritizing swelling, stretched-out chords, hushed aural textures, atmospheric field recordings, ghostly strings and unearthly instrumental sounds that invite you in for dinner and then persuade you to stay for the weekend. It's beautiful and beguiling, for sure, but also touched with a hint of sadness. As debuts go, it's really rather impressive.

Review: Galaxy Sound give this 1997 hip hop classic a new twist with some slick jazz stylings. Lil Kim's "Crush On You", is known by all but here it becomes something completely different: a forgotten jazz funk gem, colourful trumpet leads awash with lush drums and timeless soul. The flipside houses a re-edit of Jeff Lorber's "Rain Dance", which is in fact the original source of the samples on Lil Kim's track, and one that has been used on more than 20 other big time tunes. Here it's subtly tweaked but still remains a classic bit of jazz-flecked hip hop with some proper rude vocals.

Review: All the stops have been pulled out for this big new remix package on Redux Inc. First up is a new multi-track rework of Double Exposure's 1976 "Ten Percent" that was first mixed by Walter Gibbons. 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.

  2. Flashlight (Masalo remix) (8:11)
Review: For the 13th volume in their occasional "Store Jams" series, Amsterdam's Rush Hour crew has turned to Superior Elevation Records chief Tom Noble, a producer best known for his re-edits and remixes. "Flashlight" is not a cover of the famous Parliament/Funkadelic jam of the same name, but rather a similarly and colourful revivalist disco jam rich in low-slung grooves, flanged guitars and kaleidoscopic synth lines. Sometime Jamie 3:26 collaborator Masalo handles remix duties on side B, brilliantly re-imagining the track as a muscular slab of starry-eyed late night Italo-disco. Whisper it quietly, but it could well be even better than Noble's original version.

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.

Review: With Valentine's Day just around the corner, Caserta and the rest of the Bridge Boots crew have decided to offer-up something decidedly glassy-eyed and loved-up - specifically two fresh bootleg re-makes of Teddy Pendergass's 1978 Philadelphia Soul classic "When Somebody Loves You Back". The seven-inch singles boasts two distinctively different versions. On the A-side you'll find the "Rooftop Mix", a striped-back blend of dub disco and boogie in which Pendergrass's fine vocals rise above a rubbery bassline, colourful '80s soul synths and toe-tapping beats. Over on the B-side Caserta flips the script, layering selected snippets of Pendergrass's vocal over a deep, dark and bass-heavy house groove. It's sub-titled the "Basement Dub" and that's exactly what it is.

Review: Last Night On Earth's latest release is something rather special: a fresh set of dancefloor dubs of catalogue tracks by prolific producer, remixer and friend of the family Deadbeat. His interpretations are largely loopy, hazy, hypnotic and trippy, joining the dots between traditional dub techno and a more bass-heavy, out-of-this-world version of 21st century tech-house. Perhaps the most eye and ear-catching track is "Float Collapse Dub" - a version of a previously unreleased Sasha cut - but the ethereal and otherworldly dubs of tracks by Ejeca, Alex Niggemann, Hunter/Game and John Gurd - a dreamy and picturesque affair - are also especially good.

Review: Although not widely known, Daniel Dimbas's 1985 album "La Diferencia" is regarded in some circles as one of the greatest Caribbean zouk records of all time, and certainly the heaviest. Rush Hour co-founder Antal is a fan, and here heads-up a double A-side of fresh edits of key cuts from the sought-after set. First up Antal expertly rearranges "Carnaval Soca", delivering a warm, humid and sweaty interpretation rich in driving soca-disco grooves, punchy horns, heady harmony vocals and mazy, Zouk style analogue synthesizer solos. Palms Trax takes a similarly light-touch approach on his edit of the breezier and more sun-kissed "La Musique", occasionally opting for filter trickery on an otherwise traditional style scalpel edit.

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.

Previously only 80 seconds long, Fryer has managed to unearth a previously unreleased extended version that really digs into those honeyed harmonies.

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".

Wayne Perry & Randy Mcnutt decided to record a version of Pain in a power Soul Rock mode which were all the range in Cincinnati, Ohio at the time of the recording around 1973.The Boys In The Band version features Wayne singing solo but was never released. What was released was the Little Flint version (a name that Wayne had chosen as an alto ego guise ) and assisted with that version by an uncredited vocalist from Alaska singing live singing on top of the same rhythm track. Other band members included Roger 'Jellyroll' Troy on bass,Jerry Love on drums,Gary Boston on guitar,Craig Shenafield & Terry Burnside on brass (all five had played on sessions/backed James Brown at certain points in their careers) plus the young B-3 Organist Terry Hoskins who was just 17 at the time.DJ support from The Allergies so far..

Recent appearances for the likes of FireScope and Rawax have equally affirmed his position at the forefront of his field nearly 30 years after first emerging. The standard is no lower on this new release for Subconscious Algorithms, which kicks off with the Detroit-styled delights of "Photoa" before melting into the mellow brain food of "End Of Doubt". "Dromedary" brings some luscious acid sounds into the melodic mix, and "16 Hours" completes the set with an elegant trip through pin-prick electro for the after-hours set.

Now he comes to 20/20 Vision with a vivid new EP of productions that cement his place in the contemporary electro firmament. "Route 909" pivots between classic techno and emotive electro, with cinematic results. "Flyby" is a more crafty broken beat excursion with a nimble lead line that flutters over lingering piano lines. "1111" is rowdier affair that sets out a gnarly acid line front and centre, but not at the expense of Shinra's tendency for refined production. "On & On" reaffirms this point with a smart balance between growling low end and sophisticated top line melodies, rounding out a sterling EP.

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.

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.

It offers up a pair of much-loved 1990s club bangers: 1999's "Full Clip" and '92's "DWYCK". The former is a classic DJ Premier production: a toe-tapping, head-nodding bounce through rubbery beats, jazzy guitars and toasty bass topped off with the fine flows of the late MC Guru. "DWYCK" meanwhile is a more bass-heavy, floor-friendly affair, with Premier's on-point scratching complimenting Guru's vocal and the addictive weightiness of the groove. In other words, these are two golden era classics you definitely need in your life.

  2. This Is For You (instrumental) (11:45)
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.

  1. Reach N Search (edit) (6:37)
  2. Monterey (edit) (6:59)
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.

  1. Baby (4:05)
  2. Tonight (3:53)
Review: If you're stuck for a Valentine's day gift for the vinyl lover in your life, you might want to take a look at this limited, heart-shaped pressing of Donnie and Joe Emerson's cult 1979 cut "Baby", which has successfully been covered in recent years by Dean Blunt and Inga Copeland, and more surprisingly Ariel Pink and Damn Funk. Here it resides on the A-side, where the lovelorn brothers cut a heavy-hearted path through lo-fi blue-eyed soul pastures. B-side "Tonight" is a previously unreleased gem recorded during the same period. It, too, is emotion-rich and lo-fi in construction, with the pair adding their sublime vocals to a backing track rich in steel guitar solos, chunky bass and flanged guitar chords.

Review: Florence-based producer Quasar was quietly slipping out some gems back in 2017, both as digi-only files and with one 12" on the self-steered Quasar White label. Now the mysterious project returns with some more deep house heat that takes a classic sample-a-delic approach to the craft - all hazy funk loops and a dreamy finish to suit long, sunny sessions under blue Tuscan skies. From the sultry horns of "Track 1" to the catchy vocal n' piano hooks on "Track 2", this is classically crafted deep house that should appeal to fans of Max Graef and Jitterbug alike.

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.

  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: February 2020 marks the tenth anniversary of the release of Gil Scott-Heron's final studio album "I'm New Here", a set that was later brilliantly reworked by Jamie XX in 2011 ("We're New Here"). To celebrate the album's tenth birthday, XL Recordings has decided to offer up "We're New Again", a fresh "reinterpretation" of the Richard Russell produced set by contemporary jazz hero and beat-maker Maya McCraven. His vision is loose, languid, deep and jazzy, with languid jazz drumming, tight hip-hop beats, soft-touch instrumentation, liquid jazz solos and funk-fuelled basslines combining beneath Scott-Heron's gravelly spoken word vocals. It's an inspired re-invention all told and one fully in keeping with the essence of Scott-Heron's own work. In other words, it's a must-have.

Here the sought-after side is finally given the reissue treatment. It remains one of their finest revisions: a loose, languid and head-nodding fusion of hip-hop beats, subtle dub skank, occasional Marvin Gaye samples and seduction sections from Aretha's sugary, string-drenched original. Over on side B you'll find another gem from Featurecast's vaults: a tidy hip-hop style revision of Marvin Gaye's "Too Busy Thinking About My Baby" from 2016, which was made in collaboration with Washington D.C pal The Gaff.

"Dancer" is an uplifting track with a warped bassline that wraps itself round the sliding hi hats and loose drums as boogie synths add colour. "Be My Love" is an instantly recognisable gem with a fat bassline slowed to a sensuous pace overloaded with breathy vocals. Great stuff.

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.

He hits the ground running with "It's Time", a warehouse-ready throb-job full of new beat riffs and creepy electronics, before offering up another funky Euro techno cut that sounds like it could have been played at an after-party in 1990 ("Forum"). Elsewhere, "Euphoria In Ginza" is a deliciously chiming and melodious breakbeat-house workout, while "No Romantic" is another retro-futurist romp full of squelchy synth bass and rushing, turn-of-the-90s style nostalgic riffs.

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.

Review: Is there a more on-point modern jazz label than Chicago's International Anthem? The imprint has a knack of releasing far-sighted music that goes way beyond standard jazz, offering up spiritual and experimental fusions fully in-keeping with the genre's genre-defying roots. This solo set from Tortoise guitarist Jeff Parker - his second for International Anthem following 2016's "The New Breed" - is a superb example. Breathlessly eclectic in the most inspiring of ways, it sees Parker combine virtuoso jazz guitar solos and mangled, guitar-powered aural textures with all manner of live and sampled sounds to create a dizzyingly good album that variously touches on soul-jazz, post-rock, free improvisation, Terry Riley style minimalist soundscapes, ambient, jazz-funk and much more besides. In a word: brilliant.

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.

"Lovely Lady" is set to be huge on the more heartfelt dance floors out there - the rolling bass loops sweep you off your feet, hip singing claps bring the joy and the vocal is as feel good and heartwarming as you can imagine. It's a tune that just keeps on going before a special dynamite cuts DJ edit on "Joy & Pain" ups the ante with a more driving disco groove. This one is powered by big horns and funk bass riffs, big backing singers and lead guitars that reach for the heavens. Utterly irresistible.

The mysterious crew behind the series has previously offered up gems by Big Daddy Kane, Nas and Cyprus Hill.

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.

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.

Review: The world has found itself in a significant hurry. We have also found ourselves in the most distracted period of time in history; finding it tremendously difficult to remain in a moment of stillness, quietude, or allow time for self-reflection. Conversely, our vast universe continues its expansion into infinite development; a climate of deafening silence in a boundless four-dimensional continuum. It remains mesmerizing with a quiet allure that freely suspends in space-time; a true account of the beautiful unknown that sparks hope, reverence, and an awesome realization of impenetrable mystery.

"Stasis Sounds For Long-Distance Space Travel" is audibly rich in its delivery with an array of tranquil billows and patient tones. It is a journey and soundtrack that commences at Earth's thermosphere, gently moving towards the untraveled parts of space, lushly floating on forever.

These arrangements represent a group of celestial transmissions that are delicate in nature and intended for the listener to embrace moments of stillness, quietude and reflection, of which are on a trajectory of extinction at a place we call Earth.

The spirit of the Nigerian great can also be heard in flipside "Man In The Field", an altogether heavier and punchier affair that's as infectious as tropical fever and twice as sweaty.
