Review: Despite the universal imposition of lockdown, DJ Harvey's Mercury Rising nights have made a lasting impression on one particular Ibizan hideaway - the world-renowned rock n' roll themed hotel, Pikes, a favourite of Ibiza titans Fatboy Slim and Patrick Topping. To keep the spark of this monthly party alive, Harvey launched his 'Mercury Rising' compilations, putting only the best of Ibiza's balearic talents on display. The third and final volume is now finally in our mitts, and what an impressive array: odysseys of aquatic, twanging sound come courtesy of choice cuts by local mainstays Kraak & Smaak, Project Sandro and MODE.

Like A Ship
  1. Like A Ship (4:34)
  2. Nobody Knows (4:36)
Review: Numero first introduced us to Chicago's Pastor T.L. Barrett and The Youth For Christ Choir by reissuing their 1971 private press gospel funk album Like A Ship. Since then there has been Do Not Pass Me By Volume 2, which was another superb collection of gospel funk and soul jewels and now comes a new limited edition, gold marled 7" with two more of his honeyed sounds. The first is the title track of that aforementioned album, which was amazingly written, produced and conducted the Barrett was just 29. The second is no less special. 'Nobody Knows' has gorgeous bacon vocals and life-affirming rhythms and bass.

Take Them In Prayer
Cat: ATH 109. Rel: 25 Nov 21
  1. Take Them In Prayer (4:04)
  2. Let Him Be Your Everything (3:43)
Review: Another week brings another monster new 45 from the incomparable Athens of the North. This time out it is an early 80s bit of irresistible gospel, disco and boogie from Earl Young. 'Take Them In Prayer' is pure gold thanks to its tight and funky rhythm section, the delicate thinking on the keys and the heart aching vocals of earl Young that soar up top. Flip it over and on the reverse of this one and you will find 'Let Him Be Your Everything,' a quiet love song with only melancholic keys for company. It's the complete opposite of the a-side but is just as devastating for different reasons.

Review: American Bobbi Humphrey is one of the most well loved jazz flautists. She turned out plenty of vibrant albums, none less so than this, Fancy Dancer, which was her fifth. It came on Blue Note in 1975 and is full of all killer no filler gold. It also saw her, along with producers the Mizell Brothers aka Larry and Fonce, come up with a fresh new largely instrumental funk sound. Weaving in everything from world music to soul-jazz to club music to pop, it's a widescreen sound that is packed with uplifting flute from Humphrey and lush production that reveals something new with each listen.

Through It All
Cat: BCR 099. Rel: 19 Nov 21
  1. Through It All (3:29)
  2. Under The Sun (3:24)
Review: Five years after her last album on the Big Crown label, Lady Wray is soon to serve up a follow up in the form of Piece of Me. That arrives in January next year and is proceeded by this taster 7" featuring two singles from it. They showcase Wray's take on classic soul: her vocals do plenty of heavy lifting, and the instrumental funk all around her is steeped in the classic traditions, but it all comes with an extra raw edge, an urgency and crispness that brings it right up to date. 'Through It All' is a confessional that is powered by tight drums, where 'Under The Sun' is a more blissed out vibe.

Salsoul: The Reflex Revisions Part 2
VARIOUS
Cat: SALSBMG 43LP. Rel: 19 Nov 21
  1. Inner Life - "I Like It Like That" (7:26)
  2. Metropolis - "I Love New York" (8:30)
  3. Leroy Burgess - "Heavenly" (10:02)
  4. Aurra - "A Little Love" (7:45)
Review: Unlike most disco re-edit EPs, Salsoul's latest instalment of 'Reflex Revisions' are "proper" remixes, making full use of original master stems and session tapes sourced from the parent artists themselves. With all four tracks handled by French producer and remixer The Reflex, we know we're in good hands here - he's been at it since 2012. Reflex Revisions don't just add a janky kick beneath a beatgridded 16-bar loop, but rather, they move and sway with the tracks' original feels. Our case in point: 'A Little Love' completely reimagines the drum section found on Aurra's 1983 original, making the whole sonic experience much clearer and brighter. As much can be said for Metropolis' downtempo 'I Love New York', on which Reflex here makes the song grander, wider. Compared to most re-editors, this is an impressive feat occurring in a different ballpark.

You Are My Dream
Cat: PEPITE 09. Rel: 11 Nov 21
  1. You Are My Dream (4:58)
  2. I Have A Good Job (5:38)
Review: This 45 from Pepite should excite all those who dig high-quality, little-known boogie-era brilliance. Both tracks originally featured on little-known French artist Nel Oliver's second, self-titled album, which hit stores in 1980, but have since become secret weapons for a handful of European record collectors. A-side 'You Are My Dream' is smooth, soulful and groovy, with Nel adding emotive, accented English language vocals to a warming, laidback boogie groove full of metronomic bass, bongo-laced drums, crunchy guitars, fluttering flutes and starry synths. Flipside 'I Have a Good Job' is arguably even better, with Oliver's echo-laden vocals rising above heavy Clavinet ruffs, spacey synths and more luscious, laidback grooves.

Love Has Found Its Way
Love Has Found Its Way (transparent blue vinyl 7")
Cat: VR 06. Rel: 22 Nov 21
  1. Love Has Found Its Way (guitar instrumental version) (4:38)
  2. Love Has Found Its Way (dub guitar) (4:38)
Review: Earlier in the year, Robert 'Dubwise' Browne followed up his superb, soft-focus reggae-soul cover of 'Everybody Loves The Sunshine' with 'Love Has Found Its Way', a fine hook-up with vocalist Maya Hatch that effortlessly joined the dots between samba, lovers rock and sultry downtempo soul. On this "45" he delivers two instrumental revisions of the cut, both of which make superb use of the glistening, fluid jazz guitar solos that only made a brief appearance on the original release. The A-side 'Guitar Instrumental Version' sounds like a future Balearic classic, with his Peter Green-esque solos tumbling down across a shuffling samba rhythm. The flipside 'Dub Guitar' version explores similar sonic territory, amplifying the bass a little while making good use of reverb and delay effects. In a word: gorgeous.

  12. Trevor Walters - "Blood's Thicker Than Water"
Review: Back in May 2021, Edinburgh's Athens Of The North served up the first volume of this immediately classic series. That one sold out in quick fashion - like, to be honest, most of the stuff this label puts out - and bow comes a second volume which is just as hot. Once again the focus is on pulling together the lovers rock covers the label has put out previously. It kicks off with a super take on the stone cold classic that is 'Just The Two Of Us' while Sylvia Tella's 'You Might Need Somebody' is another standout with its Balearic guitars and slow and sensuous grooves.

  1. Al Wilson - "The Snake" (Senior Citizens edit) (4:16)
  2. Bobby Hebb - "You Don't Know What You've Got Until You Lose It" (Senior Citizens edit) (3:56)
Review: For those who don't keep a close eye on the international funk rework scene, Senior Citizens are one of the most prolific and well-regarded remix duos in Greece. Here they make their first appearance on Soul Flip with two club-ready revisions that sound like peak-time anthems in waiting. They begin by giving their interpretation of Al Wilson classic 'The Snake', adding his vocals and much of the original instrumentation (trademark horns included) to a beefed-up, non-stop club groove. They offer us a breather of sorts on side B, attractively shuffling their way through a breakbeat-powered, string-laden re-edit of Bobby Hebb's luscious soul number 'You Don't Know What You've Got Until You Lose It'.

Can't Live Without You
  1. Connie Laverne - "Can't Live Without You" (2:43)
  2. Anderson Brothers - "I Can See Him Loving You" (2:48)
Review: Outta Sight's third 7" is another vital pair of hugely desirable, collectible, and rare Northern Soul singles. They are both taken from the new Club Classics album of remastered floor filler anthems and are well deriving of their own slice of wax. These singles from Connie Laverne and The Anderson Brother were put out first in 1974/95 shortly before the GSF label folded. They were DJ-only promos which accounts for their rareness and come with plenty of rumours attached. Musically they are gems that were played from the birth of the scene at Manchester's Twisted Wheel to it's heyday at Wigan Casino.

Review: Since emerging in 2019, Inflo's socially conscious, politically charged Sault collective has delivered a string of inspired, impossible-to-pigeonhole albums that thoughtfully reflect on what it is to be black and British in the 21st century. Nine, the crew's latest set (and first of 2021) is every bit as incendiary, versatile and impactful as its predecessors, with the 10 collected tracks touching on everything from drowsy R&B, spoken word, classic soul and post-punk rock, to UK bass mutations, gospel, jazz-funk, Charles Stepney style excursions and hazy downtempo beats. Mixing live instrumentation and electronics with a wealth of spoken, sung and rapped vocals, Nine is a genuinely stunning, thought-provoking album full of razor-sharp lyrics and brilliantly executed musical movements.

Review: The mysterious Sault troupe is back with a call to action and revolutionary soul soundtrack that really bangs the box. "Ain't nothing gunna keep us silent" the lead singer yelps on 'Stop Der', which is an immediate banger after the soothing ambience and closely mic-ed whispers of the opener, which muse on what it means to be black. The rest of the record is a hard hitting mix of crisp drums and empowering vocals, with elements of classic soul as well as contemporary jazz colouring the grooves. This is powerful music with an even more powerful message.

Review: Very little is known about the collective of musicians behind the SAULT project, but their music in many ways speaks for itself. Earlier in the year they delivered Untitled (Black Is), a heartfelt, angry and righteous set of soul, funk, drill and spoken word tracks that provided a brilliant commentary on what it means to be black in 2020. It's a contender for album of the year, for sure, and the good news is that this speedy follow-up is every bit as essential. It's undoubtedly more celebratory than its predecessor, but every bit as musically detailed, combining cutting-edge electronics and all manner of infectious rhythms with enlightening vocals and all manner of live jazz, soul, punk-funk and jazz-funk instrumentation (as well as some seriously evocative orchestration).

They had already released on Honey Records and here bring plenty of funky influxes to their big disco beats. All four have some fine breakdowns and the final tune, with its 2 step beats, is a real standout.

What Color?

Review: Before making it big with Maze, Frankie Beverly was the man behind Raw Soul, a heavyweight, politically conscious band whose fuzzy, full-throttle sound sat somewhere between the J.B's and Sly & The Family Stone. The band's most famous moment was 1975 single 'Color Blind', which was originally recorded as 'What's The Color?' Here that never-before-heard recording is finally issued. Rich in fuzz-soaked horns, crunchy drum-breaks, weighty bass and clipped funk guitar licks, the track features some superb, James Brown style lead vocals from Beverly. Brilliantly, there's also a chance to savour the unheard Raw Soul instrumental version, which features an extended, DJ-friendly drum solo midway through. A slice of history that's well worth picking up. As played by DJ Koco....

Review: It's the collab we didn't know we wanted, but are thanking god it exists. Silk Sonic are a new star-studded duo consisting of modern R&B and funk megastars Bruno Mars and Anderson Paak. After a stunning, mournful lead single 'Smokin Out The Window', we're on the edge of our seats over this collaboration for the ages. Set to be a two-tone tour through Motown-reminiscent, slow soul jams, the production value on this is sure to be high - it has been ever since Mars' 'Uptown Funk' hit. It's no wonder these two are friends; meeting in 2017 while on Mars' 24K Magic world tour, their ultra-comparable palette saw to a brief glimpse of them hitting the studio with Nile Rodgers, Disclosure's Guy Lawrence, and even Bootsy Collins for narration of the album. Expect a retro round-trip through 60s, 70s and "old school" soul, refracted through sunglasses, flat caps and Cadillacs.

Review: Chicago collective Starvue's sole album, 1980's Upward Bound, has long been considered something of an underground classic by disco, soul and jazz-funk collectors, with numerous reissues and bootleg editions of the album appearing at various points over the last four decades. This licensed seven-inch single boasts two of the set's most potent tracks: single 'Body Fusion', a super-sweet, string-drenched slab of dewy-eyed jazz-funk/disco fusion that has been sampled on numerous occasions by house and nu-disco producers, and the lesser-celebrated 'Put The BS Aside'. This is arguably even better: a super-soulful post-disco number that boasts sumptuous orchestration and lusciously loved-up male and female vocals.

Heart Of The Groove
  1. Heart Of The Groove (Ecstatic B-Boy remix) (4:27)
  2. This Ain't No Game (Go! Go! Go!) (3:43)
Review: Heat Rock Records' latest double-dose of cut and paste madness is as incendiary as you'd expect, with both tracks adding elements of classic dancefloor workouts to fat beats and plenty of added percussion. Chicago's Altered Tapes handles side A, thrillingly re-imagining Dee-Lite classic 'Groove is In The Heart' by utilising more percussive elements (including a killer, cowbell-driven drum-break) from some of the tunes that the New York band originally sampled on their chart-topping house classic. B-Boys and B-Girls the world over will love it! On the flip, Bay Area native King Most combines the vocals from a Salsoul disco classic to a backing track that cleverly combines elements from a Ramsay Lewis style jazz number and a JB's-esuqe funk bomb.

  1. Summer Madness (3:19)
  2. Use Me (3:39)
Review: Stix Records is the sub-label of superb French outlet Favorite Recordings, and it is reserved for heavy dub cuts. This one finds label regular Mato reworking a classic reggae roller first written by Kool & The Gang. His gorgeous version is perfect for hot summer nights with its languid Fender Rhodes leads and sun kissed beats. It's loved up and perfectly, frankly. On the flip is a reggae rework of Bill Withers', who is sadly no long with us, 'Use Me,' repackaged with a playful harmonica lead and more grinding chords over the gently tumbling beats.

Review: Very little is known about the collective of musicians behind the SAULT project, but their music in many ways speaks for itself. Earlier in the year they delivered Untitled (Black Is), a heartfelt, angry and righteous set of soul, funk, drill and spoken word tracks that provided a brilliant commentary on what it means to be black in 2020. It's a contender for album of the year, for sure, and the good news is that this speedy follow-up is every bit as essential. It's undoubtedly more celebratory than its predecessor, but every bit as musically detailed, combining cutting-edge electronics and all manner of infectious rhythms with enlightening vocals and all manner of live jazz, soul, punk-funk and jazz-funk instrumentation (as well as some seriously evocative orchestration).

Review: The second LP on Athens Of The North (Edinburgh) this month is an unreleased soul LP from the American band Coast To Coast, who only released two singles between 1982 - 1983. Core members Mark Beiner and Ben Iverson were involved with acts such as 'The Hornets, Nue Dey Express and Crown Heights Affair in the early '70's. Other band members consisted of Joe Crowley, Carl (Woody Wood) Morton and Jimmy Johnson. Woody and Jimmy used to play together in the early days of seminal rap outfit Run DMC in St. Albans, Queens. Worth a listen for the soothing soul power of 'Paila Marie' alone.

Review: Durand Jones and drummer Aaron Frazer front The Indications. The band aren't looking backwards when making music, but they do channel the likes of Jackie Wilson, Curtis Mayfield, and the Impressions. Their sound is steeped in golden strings and dreamy early 70s soul. Their second album furthers that with a very present lyrical mindset and slew of influences from years spent crate-digging. As likely to pull their influences from '70s folk-rock or some classic R&B as they are Nas' most iconic album, Illmatic, The Indications has nailed it with this one.

Review: After her magnetic debut EP for Running Circle in 2017, Nottingham's Yazmin Lacey lands on our charts with her follow-up 12", a piece of work that sounds deeply accomplished and expansive for being her second EP to date. Largely roaming within the jazzo-sphere, When The Sun Dips 90 Degress is a beautifully seductive five-tracker, with the artist's voice reigning supreme over the cascading showers of piano keys and subtle electronics, somehow tapping into the Alice Coltrane sort of vibe. There's no harp here, but plenty of soulful charisma. Fear not thy devout jazz fanatic - this can get real deep and real smooth. It's a broken beat fan's dream some true. More from Lacey is, indeed, expected in the remainder of the year. Marvellous stuff.

It came on Freestyle Records and now makes it to wax, with all of his classic collaborations incuded as well as his most notable hit, 'There's Nothing Like This,' as well as 'It's So,' the big, floor facing cut that always amps up any club with its bristling drum work taking cues from the sounds Omar heard at The Notting Hill Carnival. There are plenty of lesser known gems form the evergreen star, too, plus exclusive and previously unheard tracks 'Pass It On' ft Terri Walker and 'Long Time Coming.'

  1. We Are Edits (4:37)
  2. We Are Edits (Cosmo On The Groove) (3:58)
Review: As the title sneakily suggests, the latest volume in DJ Soopasoul's essential "Soopastole Edits" series sees the prolific re-editor and mash-up merchant take his scalpel to all time disco classic "We Are Family". We could be wrong, but it sounds like it was created using the multi-track parts, focusing as it does for much of the duration on a stripped-back, DJ-friendly groove, selected vocal snippets and delay-laden musical elements not always audible on the original version. Over on the flipside "Cosmo On The Groove" version, he takes a slightly different approach, adding a classic old school hip-hop acappella to an expertly cut-up version of the track that utilizes a little more of the sing-along chorus.

  1. Home Is Where The Edit Is (4:03)
  2. Home Is Where The Dub Is (4:03)
Review: It is undervalued soul singer Esther Phillips's cover version of Gil Scott's Heron's cult classic 'Home Is Where The Hatred Is' that provides the source material for this latest edit from DJ Soopasoul. ON the a-side is a version pretty faithful to the original, only with more bulky drums, drawn out grovers and some extra drum fills for that more suitable dance floor feel. The strings will also soar on the right system. A dub pairs it back slightly to a raw funk groove with plenty of hard blue eyed soul also colouring the mix.
