Seegweed Edits Part 2
  1. Willie Hutch - "Slick"
  2. Los Monequitos De Matanzas - "Lo Que Dice El Abacua"
  3. Lou Bond - "To The Establishment"
Review: GAMM waste little time in dropping the second round of Scandodelic edits from man like Seegweed who presents a trio of tweaks that straddle the lines between disco, beatdown Latin and heavenly soul. The familiar tones of Sir Willie Hutch open proceedings in richly orchestral disco style with a tweak of the iconic singer's "Slick" lifted from the OST to The Mack starring a certain Richard Pryor. Seegweed's main embellishment concerns adding some neat percussive touches as the brass heavy arrangement makes any major surgery redundant. Alongside this is a lolloping expansion of Afro Cuban act Los Monequitos De Matanzas which is caked in sonic dust. Do check the flip for Seegweed's take on Lou Bond that adds a delightful broken bump to the singer's psychedelic soul masterpiece "To The Establishment".

  1. K Le Maestro - "Track 1" (2:56)

  3. Lancecape - "Track 3" (2:19)
Review: The fine trio of K Le Maestro, Lancecape and God Damn Chan come together on this scorching 7" to serve up their own interpretations of some fine source material. "Track 1" is all dusty MPC, dreamy Far Eastern melody sounds and bumping hip-hop beats that wash over you like a lovely day dream. "Track 2" is a little more heavy hearted, with a dragging baseline buried deep and some sombre trumpets up top for all the jazz feels. "Track 3" is somewhere in between - part romantic instrumental, part soul stirring beat, but all gold. We're told it will not be repressed, so act fast to get this one in the bag because it's pure killer.

Review: Since making her debut on Running Circle in 2017, soul-stress Yazmin Lacey has released a handful of high-quality records, most notably a suitably summery 12" on First Word Records. Here she delivers her first new solo material in two years, inviting us to celebrate morning-time in her own unique way. There's much to soothe and seduce the senses throughout, from the languid and hazy neo-soul opener "Own Your Own" and the simply superb "Morning Matters", where lilting trumpet lines and jazzy electric piano keys spar with Lacey's lead vocal, to the gently reggae-influenced summer soul of "Morning Sunrise". Recommended.

Review: Dutch producer Larry De Kat has been spotted delivering an album to Lazare Hoche and sliding his wares onto SlapFunk and Dungeon Meat alike, but his Katnip label it the one to watch for some of his most personal wares. This new release finds him purring his way through downtempo, soul-inflected selections that open out a whole new dimension to this talented, versatile producer. Juno's vocals are the icing on a particularly funky cake on "Do For Love", while "So Damn Fine" is an instrumental beat worthy of D'Angelo (sadly not included). The jazzy licks pour out of this release like honey - Larry De Kat just upped his game yet again and we strongly advise you to take heed.

  4. Understand What Black Is (Dego & Kaidi instrumental mix) (3:58)
Review: Anyone with even the most rudimentary knowledge of hip-hop history will tell you that the roots of rapping can be traced back to the early '70s spoken word albums of The Last Poets. It's because of this that the collective's recent album, Understand What Black Is (their first for nearly two decades), was such a big deal. Here the title track is given the remix treatment. Mala handles the A-side, delivering vocal and instrumental passes that re-cast the track as a skanking, dub-wise excursion full of ricocheting electric piano notes and suitably heavy bass. 2000 Black main men Dego and Kaidi Tatham take a more up-tempo approach on the flip, wrapping the Poets conscious vocals and instrumentation around their own fizzing broken beat rhythms, jazz-funk chords and darting electronics.

Review: Following the summer-sizzled "LOVE Song" comes another smooth soul schooling from Victor Lavender. Smoking keys and a lolloping bassline set the scene as Diviniti's vocals cause a spell-binding ear roadblock to great effect. For something deeper and more percussive jump on ReelSoul's drum-heavy instrumental while Josh Milan Honeycomb extends the soul aspects and injects a tiny bit of jazz to recipe giving it a confident MAW-like polish. "1929" completes the set with more jazzed out leanings thanks to the dreamy keys and piano work, tied together neatly with a funky squidgy bassline and subtle percussion elements.

Review: Fresh from delving into his ambient side on the pastorally-enhanced "Loom Dream" album for Whities, Leif revives his self-manned Tio Series with another double-shot of delicate but impactful cuts outside the conventional slipstream of modern techno. The rhythms fall crooked, the synths trickle, bubble and cascade around the groove and the atmosphere remains humid and heady, especially on ear-snagging B-side "Rumex". "Montpelier" sports more explicit dubby flourishes and a spread of sonic flora and fauna in the middle distance that truly brings the track to life.

Review: Light of the World are a seminal Brit-funk outfit who have long been teasing their new album, Jazz Funk Power. That is finally out now and you can also get some of the highlights of it on this fine 7", 'Heart to Heart' is a big and celebratory funk gem with huge trumpet stabs, rolling drums and hip swinging clasp that are pure feel good grooves. Flip to over and you will be treated to one of the album's slower songs, the lovestruck 'Summer Girl' which is as laid back and warm as an afternoon in the park taking in some rays.

I Predict A Riot

  1. I Predict A Riot (3:43)
  2. I Predict A Riot (instrumental) (3:42)
Review: Rob Luis clearly enjoys an unlikely but inspired cover version; over the years, his Tru Thoughts imprint has served up surprisingly good funk, jazz, reggae and brass band covers of everything from Roni Size's "Brown Paper Bag" and Marvin Gaye's "Sexual Healing", to Max Sedgley's "Happy" and the White Stripes' "Seven Nation Army". It's perhaps unsurprising, then, that Luis snapped up this vibrant South American cover of the Kaiser Chiefs' "I Predict A Riot" by Brazilian MPB revivalists Carolina Lins and Os Plantos. It's truly brilliant, with Lins' bold Portuguese vocal simply soaring over the band's samba-soul groove and fuzzy horn lines. As cover versions go, it's a bit of a doozy.

Review: California Soul queen Tiombe Lockhart returns to Mother Tongue with a special follow up to her The Aquarius Years album. Both tracks get special remix treatment, first up it is jazz man Christian Scoot who serves up a super pained, late night and spiritual remix where the beats are heavy hearted and the sax beautifully tragic. Intergalactic ace Carlos Nino then works with Nate Mercereau & Jamael Dean on the flip to make the tune into a steamy and sensuous neo-soul lullaby. The vocal harmonies are enough to send shivers down your spine.

Review: Sound Signature's latest release is an all-star crew affair, with an impressive cast list of vocalists, musicians and producers joining main man Theo Parrish in the studio. He's at the controls on the sublime A-side mix, a jazzy affair where layered twinkling electric piano motifs, spacey chords, jazz-funk riffs and sumptuous deep house grooves combine on a fearlessly loose and organic dancefloor workout. On the flipside friend of the family Dego offers his interpretation, adding even more warmth and some tasty additional hand percussion parts whilst wisely utilizing most of the original version's intricate musical elements.

Review: Starting 2020 like they mean to go on, West London's 2000 Black crew serves up an essential four-tracker created during jam sessions between regular collaborators Kaidi Tatham, Akwasi Mensah, Matt Lord and Dennis "Dego" McFarlane (Ranks). As with their previous collaborative releases, its' four tracks variously join the dots between deep house, bruk, jazz-funk and mellower flavours. As usual, the beats are tight and weighty, the musicianship exceptional (Kaidi's keys-playing being a particular highlight), the chords deep and the lead lines memorable. While all four tracks are excellent, our picks are the rubbery bruk-up bliss of "Return of Pastor Shadrach" and the sun-kissed broken house warmth of "Life After Subway".

Review: It would seem we're back on the Christmas card list... 2000 Black supergroup comprising the likes of Dego, Mensah and original Bugz members Lord and Tatham have been slowly ramping up their releases again and this year has seen their largest output yet. Following "Two Way Here One Way Go", "Simmering" proffers three more sublime and silky instrumentals from deeply decorated foursome. "Simmering" is a tight jazz funk jam with a sprung guitar groove spine and a blissful switch into soothing flutes midway, "Private Life" flips for a sunnyside digidub, all spacious and rippling with its breezy keys while "Climb The Sun" brings us back to the funk root note but with rising synth insistency that's bruk to the bone. Simmering now, boiling tomorrow...

Review: The rightly acclaimed Thundercat put out his latest album It is What It Is on Flying Lotus's Brainfeeder earlier in the year. Now a lead single from it gets offered up as three different versions. The album version is a romantic track with mellifluous chords rippling over lo-fi and subtle drums while the vocals bring the vibes. The always on point Floating Points then reworks it for the dance floor with airy drums that float in mid air as the keys get a bit busier and the vocals remain in place to bring the soul. An instrumental and acappella mean all bases are covered.

Review: Light of the World's seminal Jazz Funk Power album has bene long in the works and is much anticipated from the Brit-funk pioneers. Their sound is stuffed with soul and conviction, and references all the classics (think the likes of Earth Wind and Fire, Incognito, Jamiroquai, Tower of Power, Brand New Heavies, Kool and The Gang and Chic ) as well as bringing something new. Musically and lyrically this is a semi-biographical work that muses on summer loves and optimistic grooves, slow motion love songs and plenty of tender gems. Sentimental and emotional but never overly so, this one was well worth the wait.

Review: Given their shared musical heritage - both are members of the extended Firecracker Recordings crew - it's perhaps something of a surprise to find that Face The Facts marks the first serious collaboration between Linkwood and Gav 'Fudge Fingaz' Sutherland AKA Other Lands. It's less surprising that the album is really, really good. Touching on warming synth-boogie, head-nodding downtempo jams, mutant beatdown, Balearic beats, sunset-ready soundscapes and warming analogue deep house, the 13-track set is notable for the pair's extensive use of dusty old drum machines, tactile instrumentation (think smooth Rhodes solos, languid guitar solos and blissed-out synths) and Sutherland's hazy, sometimes seductive singing voice.

Review: This "Special Edition" of Lord Echo's recent third full-length, Harmonies, seems to be aimed at DJs. Whereas the original pressing contained the same tracks on one piece of wax, this version stretches the same tracks over two super-loud, heavyweight records. Formatting aside, the album itself is something of a head-in-the-clouds, feet-on-the-floor treat. It features the Kiwi producer working with a range of collaborators - Tony Laing of Fat Freddy's Drop and regular studio buddy Mara TK included - to serve up intoxicating cuts that brilliantly fuses reggae, dub and rocksteady rhythms with elements borrowed from disco, Afro-soul, Afro-funk, spiritual jazz and, more surprisingly, techno. It's a hugely vibrant and entertaining set, offering a good balance between dancefloor vibrations and more laidback concoctions.

Review: Curiosities is the second album in the trilogy from in-demand New Zealand multi-instrumentalist and producer Lord Echo. Six years after initial release, this reissue sounds as vital as ever and is extra DJ-friendly given that it is spread across two slabs of wax. It covers plenty of ground from escapist tropical ambient to lovably lazy dubs via vivid disco-funk. Highlights come in the form of "Molten Lava" and its heart wrenching vocals and the gospel grooves of "The Creator Has A Master Plan". Winter might be fast approaching, but so long as you have sounds as warm and sunny as these around, summer will never feel too far away.

Review: 12 years after popping out their debut vinyl release, Brighton's Tru Thoughts label continues to release an impressive mix of interesting, comfortable and undeniably floor-friendly music. If you've not been paying attention of late - and you'd be forgiven for sleeping on Tru Thoughts after all this time - then this weighty double vinyl and CD trawl through recent releases is well worth a listen. There's the usual mix of downtempo, jazz, soul, hip-hop, dubstep, Afro-Cuban and broken beats, with notable forays into dancefloor territory from Dave Jones (under both his Zed Bias and Maddslinky alter-egos), Hidden Orchestra and Bristolian combo Smerins Anti Social Club. The latter's cheeky dubwise version of the Doctor Who theme (featuring Tenor Fly) is particularly good.

Review: Tru Thoughts' "Shapes" series of compilations has been offering up previously unreleased gems and interesting new music almost as long as the label has been in existence. Here it returns to vinyl for the first time in a while via a double-album compiled by Tru Thoughts' big cheese Robert Luis. You can expect the usual mix of soul and jazz-inspired goodness from across the musical spectrum, with highlights including the lusciously positive and synth-heavy Jam City remix of Rhi's "Too High", the languid jazz/hip-hop fusion of "Listen" by Pieces Of A Man, with phenomenal bass-weight of Flowdan's grime head-nodder "Welcome To London" and Letherette's woozy jazz deep house revision of Anchorsong's "Testimony".

Review: It's time for another of Tru Thoughts' excellent cover compilations. The label has long been headed up by the mighty Bonobo and Quantic and has also managed to snap up fine artists such as Hot 8 Brass Band and Alice Russell, Flowdan the grime playa and Zed Bias the garage mainstay. Here it is the likes of musical maverick Mark de Clive-Lowe, Adam Prescott & Deemas J and J-Felix who serve up their own super versions of soul drenched classics. An early standout is the version fo the tune Massive Attack made so famous - 'Be Thankful For What You Got' (feat Sol Goodman) - with its flabby bass and nice chunky drums.
