First Time On A 45: Classics Vol 2 (7" in exclusive hand-stamped kraft paper inner sleeve + branded card outer sleeve + sticker) (1 per customer)
Cat: MUKAT 057. Rel: 02 Apr 18
  1. Tommy Stewart - "Bump & Hustle Music"
  2. Bridge - "Stella"
Review: It seems strange that Tommy Stewart's seminal rare groove funk anthem 'Bump And Hustle Music' has never had a 45 release, but Mukatsuku has set out to address this issue with Volume 2 of their 'First Time On A 45 Classics' series. On the flipside we find Bridge's sublime version of 'Stella' via the originally unreleased album 'Crying For Love' - recorded in Boulder, Colorado in 1981. First Experience reissued that album in 1999 but this is the first time 'Stella', written by Paul Tillman Smith has been made available as a 45. Juno copies come with an exclusive hand-stamped inner sleeve and branded card outer sleeve. DJ support from Red Greg,Fleamarket Funk,The Allergies, 45Live, Peter Croce, Boca 45 and Snowboy etc

Dimitri From Paris Presents Le Chic Remix (hand-stamped 12") (1 per customer)

  1. Sister Sledge - "Thinking Of You" (Dimitri From Paris remix) (6:31)

  3. Chic - "Le Freak" (Dimitri From Paris remix) (6:26)
  4. Chic - "Le Freak" (Dimitri From Paris instrumental) (6:40)
Review: In general, we'd say it was unwise to tamper with Chic & Sister Sledge back catalogue, especially such stone cold classics as "Thinking of You" and "Le Freak". That said Dimitri From Paris has a brilliant track record when it comes to breathing new life into familiar favourites and there's no doubt that he's hit the mark once again here. On the A-side, the veteran Frenchman stretches out "Thinking of You", subtly extending it using the multi-track parts, first for a sing-along, end-of-night vocal version and then a tasty instrumental take. On the flip, he tries the same with "Le Freak", brilliantly building up the action in layers before unleashing one of the most famous grooves of all time. Guaranteed dancefloor gold.

Brazilian Rhyme (12") (1 per customer)
Cat: ABEWAF 001. Rel: 19 Feb 18
  1. Brazilian Rhyme (Danny Krivit re-edit) (3:00)
  2. Runnin' (Danny Krivit re-edit) (8:18)
Review: Danny Krivit's officially sanctioned re-edits of Earth Wind & Fire's "Brazilian Rhyme" and "Runnin" have been sought-after since they first appeared on a Japan-only 12" back in 2004. In fact, such is demand that even later bootleg pressings now go for silly money online. As this reissue proves, though, they're arguably amongst Krivit's strongest scalpel works. Certainly, his three-minute revision of the always too short "Brazilian Rhyme" teases it out to just the right length, in the process delivering a sweltering, sing-along summer anthem. The flipside revision of the equally as summery "Runnin" is every bit as good, with Krivit making merry with the original's life-affirming scat vocals and killer piano solos.

Cat: PAMPA 031. Rel: 23 Apr 18
  1. Pick Up (12" extended disco version) (9:57)
  2. The Love Truck (9:47)
Review: When it comes to crafting lengthy, disco fired dancefloor treats, DJ Koze has previous form. His "Extended Disco Version" of Lapsley's "Operator" quickly became a White Isle anthem in the summer of 2016, and we fully expect "Pick Up" to be one of the disco-house hits of 2018. Based around spine-tingling samples from a heart-felt, orchestrated 1970s disco treat - think Tom Trago's "Use Me Again", and you're close - the veteran producer slowly builds the pressure before really letting loose in the closing stages. B-side "The Love Truck" is an altogether deeper, dubbier and dreamier affair, seemingly designed for leisurely warm-up sets and gentle, early morning shuffling.

Melodies Of Love (heavyweight vinyl 12")

  2. Walking In The Rain (5:27)
Review: Freeezy does it. John Rocca's more synth-based side project Pink Rhythm continues its reissue revival with this highly sought-after 12" that's not been reissued since 1985. Peak yacht funk with all the lavish production flourishes of the era, and strong traces of jazz, each cut stimulates: "Melodies Of Love" is all about the falsettos and Balearic charm while "Walking In The Rain" is a sultry sax-blaster with some of the most powerful bass walks Beggars Banquet ever pressed.

Review: Soundway's latest essential collection successfully shines a light on synth-heavy South African music of the 1980s, chronicling local musicians and producers' attempts to create their own hybrid forms of boogie, synth-soul and bubblegum pop. Naturally, compilers Miles Cleret and DJ Okapi have done a brilliant job bringing together killer cuts that showcase the best of South Africa's '80s synth sounds, while at the same time ensuring a high ratio of rare and hard-to-treats. While some of the tracks genuinely sound like they could have been made in New York, London or L.A, there are plenty of others that include multiple instrumental nods to a diverse range of contemporaneous South African sounds. Crucially, the music is superb throughout.

Back Into Your Heart (7" + poster)
Cat: MEL 010. Rel: 09 Apr 18
  1. Back Into Your Heart (3:49)
  2. Dance, Dance, Dance (3:26)
Review: Sam Shepherd's Melodies International imprint has barely put a foot wrong to date, serving up a string of must-have reissues. Predictably, the label's latest offering - a facsimile reissue of a thoroughly obscure but in-demand disco 7" from 1979 - is another belter. A-side "Back Into Your Heart" is particularly potent, offering a rich, cheery and pleasingly fuzzy dance through horn-heavy disco-funk pastures, with a loved-up lead vocal joined by cascading strings, intergalactic synth solos and energy-packed drums. Turn to the flip for "Dance, Dance, Dance", an urgent chunk of funk-fuelled disco-rock that's almost as essential as the majestic A-side.

  1. Rock Attack
  2. No Wonder
  3. Rock Attack (Faze Action Discomix)
Review: The Konduko label was a gem of early 80s Miami groove, playing host to a range of projects from Noel Williams. "Rock Attack" was originally credited to J. Griffith, but resurfaces here on Emotional Rescue with Williams' King Sporty & The Ex Tras billed at the helm. It's a firecracker of a tune, revolving around a stuttering electro bassline and the loosest, funkiest set of drums, sounding fresh as a daisy with a new lick of mastering paint. Meanwhile Faze Action sprinkle a little contemporary magic on the track, making a beautifully tripped out "Discomix" that sounds more like a cosmic dub extravaganza to these ears.

Philou and Villy are both members of this project, the project brings artists from Africa & African Diaspora together. The Alkebulan Project is on a mission to change the perception of Africa an it's citizens. Nigerian artist Villy and his group "Villy & The Xtreme Volumes" are on a mission to educate Africans with their message calling for a revolution in Africa, politically and socially in all aspects. Philou has a combination of Congolese, Nigerian and Sierra Leonean heritage and it is in these roots that he has built his sound. His passion for the continent of his ancestors is fervent and his projects are challenging commonly held preconceptions about Africa. His goal is to challenge negative stereotypes, by making African cultures more approachable through music. Much love for Rudy Asibey for founding The Alkebulan Project and bringing the artists together and many thanks to Marcel Vogel for giving us the opportunity to tell our story through."

Review: Philadelphia's own edit kings Superprince return on Razor-N-Tape with four more heaters, all guaranteed to find a place in your record bag. The funky and percussion driven disco of "TKO Dance" leaves little imagination to the source - it's an oldie but a goodie! The slo-mo and jazzy lounge antics of "Keep It Real" are new to our ears, but we're sure it needed an edit - and it's a respectful one at that. On the flip, they save the best for last with the sexy disco inferno that is "You Are Here" ('possibly' a reference to the legendary Mr Mouzon) while an underground goodie by a one hit wonder from 1982 gets a well needed second coming on the neon-lit funk shenanigans of "Special".

Cat: MRB 7133. Rel: 05 Feb 18
  1. For The Love Of Money (4:05)
  2. For The Love Of Money (disco dub) (4:14)
Review: Disco Dub Band's "For The Love of Money", a one-off collaboration between producer Davitt Sigerson and reggae musician Mike Dorane, has long been considered something of a classic by those who like their disco to come with a big dose of dub-wise flavour. Here the instrumental O'Jays cover, which originally appeared on the Movers label in 1976, is given the remix treatment by long-time fans Mr Bongo. The superb A-side, in which Dorane's instrumental talents take centre stage, naturally comes accompanied by the frequently played Dub interpretation, a typically wild and bass-heavy affair that sounds like it was mixed "live" in one take in true Lee Perry/King Tubby style. If it's not already in your collection, it should be.

  2. Love Me, Love Me (disco) (5:40)
Review: Rare soul-funk gem from 1981 that gets a much needed reissue - originals of this highly sought after record being rather pricey on the second hand market. Originally released in tiny quantities, the history of "Love Me Love Me" has been an enigma ever-since. When producer Smokey T recorded and wrote the track, it was the local backdrop of playing funk and soul imports in pub function rooms in the mid '70s. Whatever informed the band members musical learning made the cut. Musically it's streets ahead, yet had remained under the radar for years - until veteran London DJ and collector Winston found it amongst a stash of reggae records about 15 years ago.

  1. Essential (7:33)
  2. Look At You (Sugar Bomb) (6:26)
  3. Drums & Keys (5:44)
  4. Rhythm & Drums (5:12)
Review: Founder of White Rabbit Records and one of the hippest swingers in the Southern reaches of Italy, Giovanni Damico has more than proved himself in the field of boogie infused, disco flavoured house music. Following plentiful appearances on labels like Black Key, Movida, Geography and Bitter Moon, Damico returns to Lumberjacks In Hell with a serious serving of sultry grooves for discerning diggers to get all moist over. "Essential" keeps things hyped up and just a little feverish, with a distinctly funky stew of guitar chops, bugged out flute, Rhodes flares and more besides. "Look At You (Sugar Bomb)" is a deeper affair revolving around a particular looped up lick, and then "Drums & Keys" shifts the focus out into accomplished broken beat territory that confirms Damico's skill and adaptability across a range of styles.

  1. Let Me Show You (long vocal version) (0:30)
  2. Let Me Show You (long instrumental) (0:30)
Review: While Larry Wu's one and only single, 1984's "Let Me Show You", has long been considered an 80s boogie classic, it has remained surprisingly hard to find on 12" - hence this timely reissue. As with the original 12", Wu's sparkling Long Version is featured on the A-side. It's perhaps closer in tone to the chart-bothering Jam & Lewis '80s soul sound than the grittier, funkier New York boogie style - think chiming melodies, eyes-closed guitar riffs and a chunky synth-heavy groove - the quality of Wu's soulful lead vocal really is in the top tier. There's also another chance to check the fantastic, dub style flipside Instrumental, which features all manner of dropouts, delay-laden vocal snippets, jammed-out synth solos and slighty more floor-friendly percussion. Essential.

Review: As regular as London buses and twice as pungent, the Black Aroma edits series has been responsible for some of the greatest scalpel cut-ups of recent times. For volume ten, main man Twice has taken a back seat, instead serving up a quintet of rubs from a trio of vastly experienced editors. Red Greg gets things going with the celebratory disco loveliness that is "Ride On", before Sound Signature alumnus Specter drops to bombs: the Brazilian jazz-funk genius of "Chedda" and the low-slung, boogie-era disco-funk throb of "Double Dribble". Long serving Italian editor LTJ rounds things off, first making merry with a bass-heavy Brazilian disco-funk outing ("Sotcha") before dipping the tempo for the loved-up, saucer-eyed soul of "You Got Me Dreamin".

Take A Little Time (7" + insert)
Cat: SDE 32. Rel: 09 Apr 18
  1. Take A Little Time (4:40)
  2. My Next Step (3:19)
Review: Bill F Whitten is undoubtedly best known as the fashion designer behind some of the most arresting outfits worn by Michael Jackson, the Jacksons and Stevie Wonder. During the mid-to-late '70s, he was also briefly the leading member of an eight-piece Atlantic disco outfit called Between The Two. While the band performed live around the U.S in 1977, they never released any music, despite making studio recordings of some of their songs. Here, two of those "lost songs" make it to vinyl to the first time. We're particularly enjoying the driving, celebratory, sing-along disco of A-side "Take a Little Time", though the jazzier, slower and more musically expansive love song "My Next Step" is also impressive.

  4. Thee (edit) (5:45)
Review: Sheffield-based East Midlander Scott "Thatmanmonkz" Moncrieff takes a break from delivering dusty deep house twelves to serve up some sizzling-hot re-edits on Whiskey Disco. The Shadeleaf Music founder begins strongly, first slicing, dicing and dubbing a sax-heavy, disco-funk floor-filler ("Gimme Skin"), before exploring impassioned, soul-fired disco-funk pastures on the chorus-heavy "Yuh Can Ged It". The fun continues on the flip side, where Moncrieff underpins a lolloping disco groove with subtle house drums on "Shek Dat". Fittingly, he saves the best till last, reaching for the filters on a soaring edit of a spiraling disco workout that sounds like a peak-time anthem in the making. As they'd say in the Steel City, "Tha nailed it, pal".

Review: The unstoppable Vogel machine is back on Lumberjacks with another serving of soul-soaked house goodness to warm the cockles as we step into Spring. This time around he's called on one of the great house vocalists of our times, Khalil Anthony, to lay down a vocal on "Brown Curls" that melts over Vogel's peppy, organic production. Nebraska bring a deeper, chunkier flavour to the track with their remix, and the results are just as captivating. Anthony's also on hand to croon over "You Are A Star", an equally simmering jam with more of that dusty house pressure from the deep end of the pool, while "Those Moments" finishes the record off on a funky, instrumental tip.

  2. Do You Know Black History (musical) (8:52)
Review: Originally recorded, self-published and released in 1985 by a school teacher in Miami for educational purposes, copies of 'Do You Know Black History' did not circulate much further than Florida's public school libraries and the record has been shrouded in mystery up until now, thanks to this official reissue from Backatcha Records. Dr Mary Sullivan Bain recorded the song to be used as motivational tool in the Miami-Dade public school system she taught in. Produced with no label constraints, this cross-genre grail sits comfortably in many boxes with a cosmic blend of 808's, bass synths, deep chords, live percussion and effects dubbed into the mix. The production leans towards the electronic diy framework that became central to the local sound of south side Miami. Whilst the categories are blurred, what's clear is that Bain was thinking outside of the box, both musically and educationally.

  2. Everybody Dance (Joey Negro Revibe) (6:03)
Review: This tasty 12" serves as a kind of vinyl appendix to Joey Negro's Remixed With Love albums. It contains two more tracks re-built from the original studio multi-track tapes. Perhaps the headline attraction is the flipside "re-vibe" of Chic's "Everybody Dance", which the veteran British producer turns into a joyous chunk of dub disco full of echoing effects, Reflex style instrumental breakdowns and Idjuts-esque beats. Arguably even better, though, is his A-side version of Atlantic Starr's "Circles", a Southport Weekender favourite that the Z Records boss has turned into a life-affirming, string-drenched disco epic. It has great sing-along potential when played at the right time, to the right crowd.

Review: Koenig Saatgut supposedly appears for the first time in 15 years with this rough and ready piano house/breakbeat roller. "The Spirit" is an unabashedly big track, using a catchy 90s piano lick and sticking a brash boom bap beat underneath it. "Your Houze" is actually the smart pick here though, bringing a modernist approach to vintage, sample heavy house music. There's a whiff of French touch about this one, but mixed up with a ravey attitude that guarantees these tracks will be setting off more than a few dances.

"Nice & Easy / Hungry For Love" is a bold, dramatic cut with striking brass stabs and a slinky bassline that wraps itself around Robinson's classic vocal. "Come On" is a deeper, Philly string laden affair of the heart, rounding out this most passionate of disco 12"s.

She was more than happy for him to reissue the record, which is one of the most inspired and well-made disco-soul records you're ever likely to hear (how it remained a lost classic, we'll never know). Benita's lyrics and vocals are superb, the horns are punchy, and the B-side "Hot Mix" contains one of the best slap-bass solos you'll ever hear. In a word: essential.

On the flipside we find "Tumba Safari" taken from the recent Oriki compilation, a suitably heavy chunk of Ivory Coast afro-funk from long forgotten outfit Afro Train. Weston's version naturally emphasizes the drum breaks, heavy horns and razor-sharp guitars, in the process tightening it up for contemporary club play.As played by Hunee,Red Greg ,DJ Logic and Nicola Conte

Review: Late last year, French imprint Chuwanaga launched via a fine compilation exploring the early '80s Britfunk sound (think jazz-funk and electrofunk) in impressive detail. You'll find numerous aural nods to that style on this follow-up, a fine debut single from producer Koji Ono. Check, for example, the sparkling synthesizers, hustling guitars and house-tempo jazz-funk grooves of "So High", the wiggly Clavinet lines, whistling melodies and rubbery bass of "Inner Rhythms" and the luscious, misty-eyed warmth of ear-pleasing mid-tempo instrumental jam "Momoshima". All are exquisite examples of revivalist cuts that boast more than enough freshness and impeccable instrumentation to bear comparison to the records that inspired them.

  3. Sharpflavor (Dino Soccio edit) (8:47)
Review: Previously, Los Angeles re-edit specialist Dino Soccio has operated under the Only Children alias, serving up filter-heavy, house-fired reworks for Razor 'N' Tape and Nurvous. Here the fast-rising DJ/producer branches out on his own via the new Pleasure of Edits series. There's a brilliantly no-holds-barred feel to opener "Stop", a chunky and full-throttle interpretation of a quirky, arpeggio-driven gem that incorporates elements from boogie, Italo-disco and Moroder-style Euro-disco. There's a similarly quirky feel to the delay-laden, left-of-centre electrofunk shuffler "Tough", while flipside "Sharpflavor" pitches up and toughens up a seriously druggy chunk of Munich Machine style electro-disco sleaziness.

  4. Zanzibar (Afro mix) (5:46)
Review: Dark Entries' series of leftfield Italo-disco reissues continues with a double-header from prolific Italo disco session vocalist Helen (AKA Elena Ferretti), whose early excursions on obscure Italian labels Out Records and Discomagic have previously been the sole preserve of dusty-fingered crate-diggers. This EP brings together two of her finest EPs; 1983's scarce "Witch" - an exercise in bubbling, synth-pop inclined Italo-disco - and 1985's arguably better-known "Zanzibar". It's arguably the sparse, cowbell-laden "Afro Mix" - think Cosmic Club era Daniele Baldelli - of this track that steals the show, though all four tracks are shot through with that European strangeness that often marks out the best early Italo cuts.

Review: Emotional Rescue make no attempt to hide their love of classic 80s cutters Razormaid's remixes, and on this occasion they're shining a light on the pumped up dancefloor versions of cult Canadian synthwave concern Psyche. The "US Club Mix" of "Eternal" is a perfect, swooning synth pop belter with weight in all the right places to work on the floor. "Prisoner To Desire (Alcatraz Mix)" is a snarling stomper that almost touches on acidic synth lines underneath the impassioned vocals, and then an exclusive re-edit of "Unveiling The Secret" ups the tempo while letting the catchy pop edge to Psyche's sound shine through. The record finishes with the fevered intensity of Joseph Watt's extended mix of "Ecstasy".

They've called upon a cracking cast of deep house operators to help donate their jams to the cause, kicking off with Tilman's infectious, looped up heavy-grooving "Without Your Love". Jonny Rock takes a boogie-inflected, 80s approach on the aptly titled "Oldschool Funk Edit", while Lucky Charmz heads into swooning edit territory on the beautiful "Sun Mountain". Pletnev rounds the record out in fine style with a tripped out bongo roller in the shape of "Babunde'.

Mr Beatnick keeps things suitably deep when tackling "Rat Boogie," all laid back disco patter and filtered funk, before Marcel Vogel goes one step further on "Keep What Ya Got" and rolls out slow and juicy funk of the raunchiest kind.

Finally Maynard Ferguson's "Pagliacci" undergoes a dramatic staccato twist midway before dropping into one of the finest flute-firing finales Claussell's ever whipped up. Sublime.

Review: After the last 12" from Nick Murray and Kris Baha landed back in 2016, Kinfolk finally makes a welcome return with a surefire Balearic tumbler from Sundown Drive, a project purportedly presented by Golf Channel and Rogue Cat cats Mind Fair. "Sunset Over Santorini" is a gorgeous, 70s-tinged jam with pattering percussion, loose and easy bluesy guitar licks and a slinky bassline to die for. It's cool as a cucumber and twice as loose. Mustafa Ali's Nad project takes the reins on the B-side with an electrified remix of the track that heads into wonderfully tweaked out dubwise territory for the trippers.

Review: Robin Lee takes a break from his day job as Faze Action to slip into the occasional Rudy's Midnight Machine alias for this outing on his own label. It's a mellow, atmospheric ride into pastures you wouldn't normally associate with Faze Action, although "Midnight Safari" is smooth and luxurious enough to feel right in any context. "In The Air" has a mysterious air to it, helped in no small part by the evocative Eastern lilt of the strings running through the centre of the track. There's a sassy boogie step powering "Reach Backless," while "Windchimes" flips the script with a semi-ambient live bass reverie. It's back to the party one last time with "Solar Plex" though - this record is about synthy funk first and foremost.

Review: Following the runaway success of her long-anticipated 2017 debut album, Honey Dijon returns to action via a feel-good, peak-time collaboration with storied Aussie vocalist Sam Sparro, who first rose to prominence in the late noughties following appearances on Basement Jaxx records. Sparro's trademark vocal naturally takes centre stage on the opening "Disco Version", a driving chunk of acid house/disco fusion that sounds like a summer anthem in waiting. The track's nagging TB-303 lines are naturally pushed to the fore on the darker Cosmic Energy Dub, while fellow Chicagoan Cratebug flips the script entirely on his flipside rubs. Choose between the deep house/disco fusion of the "Nova Remix" and the arguably superior "Supernova Remix", where twisted but funk-fuelled acid lines rise above a stripped-back groove.

Review: You'd be forgiven for not knowing "Breaking At The Party", the sole single release from NYC outfit Joey Pastrana & His Back of Tricks. It was originally released in 1984 on the short lived Tropic Of Buddha Records, a label dedicated to Latino takes on electro and disco. Such is the record's obscurity and cult status amongst collectors that you'll struggle to find original copies for sale for less than L500. This City of Dreams reissue presents both of the original mixes ("Vocal" and dub style "Instrumental"), both of which fuse elements of boogie, electro and dub disco in a fabulously eccentric and wonderfully funky way. The synthesizer sounds, in particular, are superb.

Review: Not An Animal are known for their heated takes on the art of disco-sampling house music, and Ess O Ess is one of the key factors in defining that sound. This comes through in spades on Take You To A Secret Place, where the title track comes marching out atop a deadly bassline that will cut through any mix to get the people freaking out. The dub mix is equally deadly, flying a generous dose of cosmic sparkle into the mix without losing the punch in the original production. Kuniyuki Hard takes a daring approach that slows the track down to a creep and emphasises space and tension. The Angophora version is even more drastic, seemingly stripping all the recognisable elements of the track out and leaving behind a plaintive thread of ambient instrumentation.

"Night Heat" is the perfect lead track, all steamy synth throb and funky guitar licks, while "Feel" turns up the pressure with a proto house burner that would have set the Paradise Garage alight. Also look out for a rare appearance from AD Bourke, who cruises on to the record to deliver a blissed out version of "Night Heat" for the smokiest of sundown situations.

Review: ** REPRESS ALERT ** Emotional Especial return with a release from Romanian duo Khidja that comes packing some excellent remixes from senor Fairplay and Juju & Jordash! Brought to the attention of EE thanks to Hardway Brother Sean Johnston, who returned from a Bucharest DJ gig singing the praises of two young DJs, Khidja's productions are as impressive as their selections on the evidence here. "Mustafa" is more immediate with shuffle percussion, swirling sirens and acid bubbles leading to a perfect horn break. In the hands of Mr Fairplay, the track takes on anthemic qualities; the stabbing bass and build have allegedly seen howls of appreciation when it's dropped at A Love From Outer Space. "Abdul" finds Khidja in a more calming mood reminiscent of Art of Noise, though the kick and bass ensure there is plenty of rhythmic emphasis, whilst the Juju & Jordash remix edges towards a Balearic digidub vibe.

Predictably, there's more brilliance to be found throughout the hush-hush label's latest three-track missive, which is the work of London scene stalwart Dave Jarvis and fellow Love Vinyl shop-worker Jake Holloway. A-side "Morning Shunt", a brilliant rearrangement of a little-known Afro-disco cut that comes on like Fela Kuti covering "Don't Leave Me This Way", is the clear standout, though B-side jams "Jacques Theme" - a sort of William Onyeabor goes to Cuba throw-down - and "The Bandit" (Balearic brilliance with funk style drum breaks) are also excellent.

Here he serves up a third instalment that's every bit as good as its' acclaimed predecessors. Highlights naturally come thick and fast throughout, from the mid-80s dreaminess of Maya's undeniably Balearic "Lait De Coco (Dub)" and the Brenda Taylor-ish bounce of Judy Carter's brilliant "Listen to the Music", to the Leroy Burgess style piano stabs and Patrick Adams-ish disco production of Caramel's "L'Amour Toujours L'Amour". Oh, and the late night radio warmth of NST Cophies' "Segregation", a sweet, undulating workout that will no doubt find favour with Balearic selectors.

Review: Sinna Man marks a welcome return to action from Chicago veteran Cratebug, whose previous edit releases for Tugboat Edits, KAT and others successfully channeled the spirit of Windy City legend Ron Hardy. Were he alive today, the Music Box resident would most likely approve of A-side "Sinna Man", a dusty and driving jack track that adds hazy vocal samples and slamming drum machine percussion to looped up snippets of a vintage disco groove. Flipside "The Message" is a typically trippy, early morning affair that adds a famous, early Chicago house spoken word vocal to a heavily altered version of Francois K's dub remix of Bohannon's "Let's Start The Dance". Both cuts are driving and muscular, boasting more energy than your average warehouse full of saucer-eyed ravers.

"Disco Baby" is a prime chunk of jaunty, jazz-funk influenced disco-funk, the keyboardist's own jammed-out riffs and solos taking pride of place in the mix alongside punchy horns and a lolloping groove. Arguably even better, though, is Floating Points and Red Greg's flipside re-edit, which plays around with the original version's all-too-short drum break before letting the synths, keys and horns really sparkle.

Party Freaks/Dance Together (12" limited to 300 copies)
Cat: BST X031. Rel: 23 Apr 18
  1. Party Freaks (4:35)
  2. Dance Together (4:05)
Review: Alan Shelly was an intermittent feature in the late 60s and early 70s soul and funk scene, but his one-off 7" Party Freaks / Dance Together released in Italy in 1975 remains a treasured gem for those who crave the most potent secret weapons for their record crates. Of course, Best Italy are no slouches when it comes to such records and they have dutifully snapped up the original masters of these sought after jams and given the full, uncut mixes a proper, beautifully remastered airing on 12". "Party Freaks" has a raucous, West African flavour to it that can't fail to set the crowd alight, while "Dance Together" takes things in a looser, jammed out direction - both tracks are pure fire, and it's a damn good thing Best have dusted them down.

  1. Movin Smoke (6:30)
  2. Infinity I & II (5:33)
  3. Make Love (6:30)
  4. Magic City (5:51)
Review: On the two releases we've heard to date, Cody Currie has barely put a foot wrong, delivering a string of tracks that brilliantly join the dots between dusty, soul-flecked U.S deep house and hip-hop style sample-based beat jams. For this outing on Razor 'n' Tape Reserve, he applies the same approach to the world of disco and boogie. So, we get the rolling, sun-kissed warmth and gentle filter tweakery of wide-eyed disco house shuffler "Movin' Smoke", the slack-tuned jazz snares, swirling chords and bubbly synthesizer samples of "Infinity I & II" and the swirling, string-drenched orchestral disco-house bounce of "Magic City". Arguably best of all, though, is the more driving "Make Love", where Currie's ability to select and manipulate samples within a bumping deep house framework is best exemplified.

Review: Yes! A brilliant induction into the Neroli annals of fame for Mr Dego and his 200 Black crew; joining the likes of Domu and Nubian Mindz in adding some classic bruk boogie perspective to Volcov's long running label. There's numerous reasons to check this triple hitting Find A Way plate, not least the title cut where Dego teams up with Akwasi and Kaidi Taiham, with the latter offering up a rare turn on vocals as opposed to manning the keys; the results are sublime and soul enriched boogie which offers a nice contrast with the deeper, rolling bump of "The Hurt". The amazing Bembe Segue turns up on "Sunshine" with Dego and crew wisely taking a step back to let her take centre stage.

On the flip you'll find the jaunty, horn-heavy disco-funk bump of "Desire", a superb rework of a barely known, bilingual gem, and the spiraling Caribbean disco-funk insanity that is peak-time workout/synthesizer wig-out "Trinidad Duke". All three edits have been "secret weapons" for the dusty-fingered DJ for some time, and can now be yours for less than nine English pounds. What's not to like?

  3. Express Yourself
Review: Imogen have stumbled across a rare gem here, presenting some previously unheard liquid funk jams from the lesser known Chicago pioneer James Perri. Some of his jams as Jimi Polo are perennial classics, while his time spent in Soul II Soul and elsewhere are testament to his gifts, but this particular set of recordings from the 90s have lain in wait for their time to shine. You can hear his skills as a session musician and arranger coming through in abundance on this warm, grooving, acid jazz inflected EP. "70s Theme" is a sparse, moody jazz funk cut, while "Brother Beware" is a smooth, sultry slice of message soul. "Express Yourself" is the truly uplifting slice of the pie, and it will chime just fine with any lovers of that classic Soul II Soul sound.

Review: It would be fair to say that Estiban Lindsay's one and only album, 1980's L.A Walk, is something of a sought-after rarity. Considered by many disco/boogie diggers to be a must-have, original copies of the Canadian classic currently change hands for three-figure sums online. Ever the dusty-fingered digger, Nik Weston has managed to license two tracks from the album after hearing global trotting DJ Hunee championing the main track in his sets in 2015 , and provides his own extended dancefloor re-edits. Both are subtly done, with Weston teasing out Lindsay's grooves and making more of his deliciously soulful versions, all without adding needless house drums or contemporary production tricks. The EP also contains the original version of the warm, disco-boogie gem "Come To Me".

Review: According to first-wave disco re-editors such as Danny Krivit, the perfect re-edit should simply be a rearrangement of an existing track that makes it more suitable for club plays. That seems to be the ethos behind the Light Touches series. Certainly, there's no attempt from editor Andrea Passenger to add contemporary production effects or beef up the bottom end with new beats; instead, this second volume in the series serves up a trio of tidy, club-ready rearrangements. On the A-side you'll find "Get Up", a groovy disco-funk outing rich in eyes-closed guitar motifs and restless horn lines. Turn to the B for the low-slung, up-tempo, string-drenched peak-time disco swirl of "Let's Have It" and "Around", a glassy-eyed, loved-up disco slow jam full of jaunty orchestration and hazy vocals.

  1. Keep God On Your Side (5:51)
  2. Going Down (Incognito) (6:36)
Review: Previously, Philadelphia outfit Heem The Music Monsters was most famous for the sought-after 1976 psych-funk 7" "Wake Up People". It turns out, though, that the Hubert Willis-produced band recorded tons of other material in the same period, almost all of which has never seen the light of day before. The two tracks featured here are two such examples. "Keep God On Your Side" is a pleasingly sweet and dreamy chunk of life-affirming warmth that sits somewhere between classic Philly Soul and the more conscious vibes of the Mighty Ryeders. B-side instrumental "Going Down (Incognito)" is arguably even better, mixing as it does the inspired fusion of Brit-funk combo Cymande with heavy Clavinet lines, breathy backing vocals and dueling horn solos.

Review: Acclaimed crate-digger turned disco re-editor KON has decided to launch his own reissue imprint, Kontemporary. The idea is simple: to accompany re-mastered original tracks with fresh rubs from the man himself. 12" number one offers another opportunity to enjoy George Duke's soulful, sun-kissed, disco-era jazz-funk bomb "I Want You For Myself". On the A-side you'll find Duke's own impeccable 12" version, with KON's re-edit gracing the B. Having access to the original multi-track tapes has allowed the New York-based producer to not only include an atmospheric, extended intro (a tactic regularly used by fellow rework merchants The Revenge and Joey Negro), but also give more prominence to Duke's superb piano solos.

Be prepared for one well funky and soul infused journey on "Talkin Bout Life" which is perfect to bring in the summer of 2017. Funky elements, a serious horns section and strong vocals hold up this brilliant track. It's a more straight ahead deep house affair on the rather evocative "We Together" and actually its the kind of track you could imagine Derrick May or Dixon playing out; there are definitely elements of 'hi-tech soul' in it. The Brisa remix of Talkin Bout Life" on the flip is a worthy addition also.

As if that wasn't enough bangers in one place, he finishes with a triumphant rework of disco-era Michael Jackson ("Starting Something").

Review: Given that this is Moscoman's first solo single on the Disco Halal imprint he inaugurated in 2015, it's perhaps unsurprising that he's saved something rather special for the occasion. "I Ran" is a throbbing, high-octane peak-time treat, where haunting Arabic vocals seemingly float over a thrusting, arpeggio-driven groove and bubbly, off-kilter machine drums. It's druggy and intoxicating, of course, but also fiendishly heavy and pleasingly unorthodox. On the flipside, old pals Simple Symmetry re-imagine "I Ran" as a sticky and trippy chunk of organic Arabic dub disco, complete with toasty bass and razor-sharp electric guitars. It's not quite as thrilling as Moscoman's original version, but it's a close run thing.

Review: Dark Entries continues to license and reissue some of the greatest - not to mention hardest to find - Italo-disco ever made. This 1984 single from Italo-disco duo Fokewulf 190 is a great example. In many ways, it's atypical of Italo-disco, eschewing the style's usual arpeggio basslines in favour of a bubbly synth groove inspired by electrofunk, onto which is layered stylish, new wave influenced synthesizer melodies, atmospheric chords, snaking synth-saxophone and a highly accented vocal - originally un-credited - from future Italian synth-pop star Fred Ventura, who was then in the early stages of his career. Naturally, the headline vocal version comes accompanied by a fine instrumental, which is more like a delay-laden club dub in feel.

Review: While not one of Sylvester's better-known club hits, 1978 jam "Dance (Disco Heat)" is every bit as essential as "I Need You", "You Make Me Feel (Mighty Real)" and "Over & Over". Here, Masters at Work man Louie Vega offers up his takes on the disco classic, which sits somewhere between the traditional NYC sound and the muscular, arpeggio-heavy electronic style of disco made famous by Giorgio Moroder and Patrick Cowley. Vega's 12-minute A-side "Re-touch" strips out many of the electronic touches, instead focusing on delivering celebratory, peak-time disco abandon. On the flipside you'll find two tasty DJ tools: a loopy, slightly more house-centric dub (which also includes a lengthy filtered section to allow for longer mixes) and a short instrumental mix.

Review: For those of a certain age, Gwen McRae's "All This Love That I'm Givin" will always evoke memories of Cassius' French Touch classic "Feeling For You", which sampled it heavily. It remains a killer record in its' own right, though, as this timely reissue proves. Originally released in 1979, it sees McRae at her powerful best, delivering a potent message to an errant lover over a killer, low-slung disco-funk groove. It's one of the tracks that should really be in any discerning funk, soul or disco DJ's collection. Flip for original B-side "Maybe I'll Find Somebody New", a breezier chunk of laidback soul with a slightly Southern lilt. It's good, but pales into insignificance compared to the brilliant 'A' side.

Review: Manchester producer Andy Hanley has had one previous outing on Ruf Kutz but now he's adopted the Haners alias to kick off the Misadventures label with an assured grip of warm, discoid funk shot through with a healthy dose of 80s production finish. "Heaven" is definitely the most dancefloor ready track - a shimmering slice of laid back disco house with plenty of hooks and a dreamy, slightly dubbed out atmosphere. "Girl" is more audacious, slowing the tempo right down and riding on a brittle beat and a heavily reverbed dose of island boogie. "You" keeps things slow and easy for the gentle part of the night - a consummate smooth groover.

Skirting around the throbbing bassline and triangle hits of "My Body On Fire" is a vocal that will have some train-spotters pulling their hair out in frustration, while "Not In Love Anymore" will have both Warren G/Nate Dogg and Michael McDonald fans bumping and grinding to excess.

Review: This two-track missive is a significant one for Harvey Sutherland. Not only does it mark the debut of his Clarity Recordings imprint, but also his first recorded outing with regular backing band Bermuda. Opener "Priestess" is something of an epic, with Sutherland working a tasty groove - think languid, live drums, thick synth-bass and spiraling electronics - for several minutes before unleashing some killer jazz-funk keys and Herbie Hancock style solos. In contrast, flipside "Bravado" is a much more spacey affair, with regular, sweaty drum fills and groovy live bass underpinning wild synthesizer motifs and twinkling electric piano. Both are dancefloor-ready, but warm and loose enough to please jazz dancers as much as disco heads.

"African Freak" is an anthemic afrodisco dreamboat with all percussive trills and spills while on the B we have two tightly-coiled electro jams including an insane reinterpretation of "Planet Rock" and a cosmic trip down the autobahn fast lane.

Review: A staple selection from Strut since its Nigeria 70 collection, this momentous piece of musical history dates back to 1979 when iconic vocalist Shina brought together the likes of Biddy Wright, Fred Fisher, Saliu Alabi and more decorated Nigerian musicians for a one-off supergroup. This epic, slippery freeform 11 minute piece of pure Afrofunk was the timeless result. Having enjoyed a handful of reissues and returns in its near 40 year life, this is the first time it's been remastered and delivered with all its original artwork and a full list of credits. Perfect to the very detail.

Review: It's been nine years since evergreen electrofunk DJ Greg Wilson last dropped a volume in the Credit to the Edit series. This third collection of personal re-edits and commissioned reworks is therefore long overdue. Serial Wilson-watchers may already familiar with some of the edits on show - particularly his epic tweak of Escort's Dillinger-inspired modern disco epic "Cocaine Blues" and a similarly lengthy, stretched-out take on T-Coy's seminal British house cut "Carino" - but there's naturally of plenty of lesser-known and unheard revisions to set the pulse racing. We'd direct you towards his teased-out, end-of-night version of Electronic's "Getting Away With It" (whose lyrics poke fun at Morrissey), a twisted version of Red Rack'em's "Wonky Bassline Disco Banger" and a chugging rub of Space's trippy Euro-disco classic "Magic Fly".

Review: From World Unknown, Magic Feet and Tusk Wax and now on to Kinfolk, Tim Rivers is marking out a place in that world of mystical grooves where acid, kosmische, new age, Balearic and wyrd pagan dance can all jam to the same beat. The title track on The Mirage is a gorgeous slice of motorik smoothness, letting sustained guitar nights ring out over a tender throb of bass. "Suni Aki" is a more dramatic piece with a healthy dose of 80s bombast poured over its loins, and then Soft Rocks grapples the B side for a remix of "The Mirage" that cuts the tow line and drifts off in the direction of the sunset.

Review: Having previously impressed on Argot and Home Taping Is Killing Music with her blends of evocative deep house and floor-friendly Chicago rhythms, The Black Madonna tries a different approach on this debut for the recently launched Night Owl Diner label. You could certainly describe both tracks as "Balearic", and there's a real air of wide-eyed positivity about the tumbling melodies, swirling synth-strings and mid-80s pop production of head-nodding deep house cut "Stay". It's pretty darn tasty, all told. Almost as good is "Requiem", which appears to be built around a loop lifted from Cherrelle and Alexander O'Neal's "Saturday Love" (with, of course, additional synths and tuneful electronics).

Review: 1987's Subliminal is one of the more eccentric albums in the bulging discography of Japanese saxophonist turned electronics wizard Yasuaki Shimizu. It was recorded in Paris and was an apparently an attempt by the composer-producer to "capture the spirit of everyday encounters". As this essential reissue proves, the album has lost none of its quirky charms over the last three decades. There are dashes of off-kilter soundtrack jazz, pitched-down synth-pop chuggers, inspired fusions of traditional French music and rubbery electrofunk, far-sighted global fusions that defy easy categorization, and moments that some may consider "Balearic". This reissue also includes two tasty new edits of album highlights from Japanism label boss Chee Shimizu, both of which expertly extend the original versions for added out-of-this-world pleasure.

It's a sweet natured jam layered with gorgeous vocals, perfect Afro guitar licks and a bubbling organ line.

"Techmoreno" keeps up the intensity, which gives Alejandro Paz the necessary ingredients for an equally smoking remix for the crafty jackers out there on the floor.

Review: Smokecloud Records has long claimed to be the World's only imprint dedicated to Detroit Beatdown style reworks of funk, soul, disco and boogie gems. Whether this is true or not, there's no denying the consistent quality of the imprint's output. This latest release features contributions from two label stalwarts; owner and A&R man Osmose, and New Yorker The Silver Rider. The latter kicks things off with "I Wanna Be", a rolling, soft touch head-nodder that fuses elements of a tactile soul cut with hypnotic, pitched-down house beats and filter sweeps. It's rather good, but nowhere near as inspired as Osmose's "Trust", which turns a classic Motor City soul cut into a smooth, toe-tapping Beatdown shuffler.

What a timeless gem. So much so that Germany's Black Pearl has decided to put it onto 7" format, along with a majestic dub cut that we hadn't heard before...and that means more beastly synths, machine-drum badness, and Shadow's iconic vocals.

Review: Everyone's favourite boogie-fired loop-house duo has been rather quiet of late. In fact, this is the sample-loving Italian twosome's first single release since 2016. It's fair to say that these two tracks were worth the wait, though. "Chilli Jam" is a typically throbbing, heavy house loop-jam built around lifts from a rubbery, low-slung disco-funk gem, blessed with their usual energy-building edit tricks and DJ style filter drop-outs. While it's a tried and tested peak-time floor-slayer, the decidedly epic "Moonswing" is even better. Starting out as a twinkling, loved-up chunk of rolling deep house bliss, it soon morphs into a suitably wavy and life-affirming Balearic house rush complete with sneaky boogie samples. It's great to have them back.

On the A side we have the slo-mo swagger of "Flippin' The Disco" using an often sampled Salsoul classic, but pitched down well low to give it a new lease of groove - plus those familiar rap vocals layered over the top are a nice touch. On the flip, "Tux Redux" sees this bohemian b-boy get lo-slung with this blunted hip-hop joint.

Review: Long-serving disco-house fusionist Hot Toddy (AKA Crazy P co-founder Chris Todd) is in a loved-up mood on this rather tasty three-tracker. Surprisingly, it's his first solo single for some five years, and his first for House of Disco. It's the breezy, funk-fuelled A-side "In The Genes", in which Todd expertly fuses together elements most often found in proto-house, NYC boogie, early house and disco-funk records, that stands out, though the standard naturally remains high elsewhere. "Love Music", for example, is a wonderfully sauced-eyed stroll through dreamy deep house/disco fusion, while closer "Love Can Set You Free" sits somewhere between stripped-back disco-house, percussive boogie and Idjut Boys style dub disco.

Disco De Los Muertos ("Disco of the dead", if our Spanish is up to scratch) is predictably full of cheeky dancefloor moments that should appeal to both house and disco DJs alike. Our pick of the bunch is probably the low-slung "Playing The Groove For An Hour", where fizzing synth stabs ride a ridiculously rubbery slap bass riff and rolling house groove. That said, the deeper and dreamier "The Camel" is rather good, while the horror-tinged Mexican funk-goes-house fare stretched across the A-side is both rock solid and highly playable.

Review: When it comes to breathing new life into well-known classics, there are few better than Frenchman-in-London The Reflex. Further proof of this assertion can be found on RWY, the third 12" on the producer's own Revision Records imprint. The title track sees him once again take his scalpel to a track by Michael Jackson, subtly building layering up and extending "Rock With You" (a feat made possible by his ability to get hold of multi-track parts to the material he re-edits). On the flip, he successfully tampers with Lionel Richie's end-of-night classic "All Night Long". Brilliantly, he removes much of the percussion during key vocal passages, which in turn gives subsequent choruses extra dancefloor oomph. Bravo, Sir.

Review: Since launching in the summer of 2017, Alex Attias' edit-focused LillyGood Party label has consistently delivered the goods. It helps that Attias' approach to re-editing mirrors original scalpel legends like Danny Krivit - think killer rearrangements with no cheap production trickery - but this would mean nothing if the selected material was below-par. This time round he's on a Latin-tinged jazz-funk and disco tip, first teaming up with brother Stephane to deliver a superb, horn-heavy rework of Onward International's 1985 all-dayer slayer "Foot in the Door". It's a righteous and funk-fuelled affair guaranteed to bring a dose of sultry sunshine to any party. On the flip, Attias goes solo to lovingly extend Elbertina "Twinkie" Clark's 1981 gospel-fuelled disco-soul treat "Awake O Zion", with predictably fine results.

"You Are The One" rides on a bloated bassline and ethereal pads while a guttural vocal chants out the title, making all your sleazy dancefloor dreams come true. "Young Narcos" is a much lighter affair, lacing smooth 80s island boogie into a contemporary setting for an exercise in loose limbed liquid funk. Mugwump & DC Salas come correct on the remix tip, beefing "You Are The One" up into a snarling, acidic romper, and there's also a "Voxapella" of the track slipped on the end of the record for creative mixing delights.

Review: Given that Todd Terje's first original material in some five years resulted in one of last year's highlights with the Running Back released Ragysh, it's natural he would want to leave some space before following up. The first of a series of EPs crafted from using one bit of vintage gear in particular, It's The Arps sees Terje dabble with the intricacies of the Arp 2600 analogue synthesizer as well as pay homage to his favourite Monty Python sketch. This is just as nerdy as you'd expect from a man who recently launched a website with the specific intention of exploring the obsessive studio nature of his contemporaries. The aforementioned "Inspector Norse" is an obvious highlight here, slowly unfurling gorgeous layers of playful synthesis that grapple the simplistic drums with flirtatious delight. Naturally for someone who spends most weekends of the year in a nightclub, Terje demonstrates a real prowess for building up the track, teasing your senses once before unleashing the mid point monstrous moment. It makes for another signature track from Terje which is likely to engender a rapturous reception for many months to come. Alongside it, "Myggsommer" provides a brief, twee interlude into oddball sci fi soundscapes which again prove to highlight the Arp 2600's capacity for inventive and idiosyncratic sounds. From here Terje unveils a two part skywards saunter through "Swing Star" showcasing a more dextrous manipulation of the Arp 2600's melodies across the markedly more rhythmic upbeat first part and expansive luxurious cosmic subsequent endeavour. Whilst "Inspector Norse" is guaranteed to be the one track from this release you will hear in the international discotheques, the remainder of It's The Arps serves as a excellent reminder of Terje's ever growing talent as a producer.

Everyone in the Logg project plays a pivotal role in one of the coolest boogie records of the era. Essential.

Review: This more than handy 7" single brings together two classic disco-era cuts from soul legend Willie Hutch. A-side "Easy Does It", which was originally featured on 1978's In Tune album, features Hutch in full-on Curtis Mayfield mode, singing passionately over a jaunty, jazz-funk influenced backing track laden with swirling strings, choral backing vocals (think Marvin Gaye's "What's Going On" album) and Dexter Wansel style synthesizer solos. It's undoubtedly one of Hutch's finest moments and deserves to be in any serious soul head's collection. Flip for 1979's "Kelly Green", a sumptuous soul slow jam in which Hutch pines over a lost lover.

Review: First Choice's era-defining disco funk anthem "Love Thang" gets dusted off by Salsoul. Timeless struts, silky bass flurries, huge orchestration and gutsy vocals; this still sounds spotless today. Complete with an acapella and instrumental, the real boon here is Kon's edit. If anyone is going to edit such a classic appropriately it's this guy; with a more mix-friendly, break and vocal focused intro, dynamic stripdowns and build ups and a big drum-focused pay-off, Kon reminds us how artful editing can be in the right hands... Again.

Review: Having already reissued the Joubert Singers disco classic "Stand On the Word" in its original form earlier this year, French label Favourite get busy with a remix-heavy accoutrement in twelve inch format. Those new to the art of collecting classic discotheque vinyl will no doubt be tempted by the appearance of the much vaunted Larry Levan mix, which turns out wasn't actually by the legendary DJ but instead the equally brilliant and much missed Walter Gibbons. Regardless, the remix is a classic in the disco canon, and is complemented by three all new renditions. Long term label associate Patchwork comes through with a nicely judged remix that realigns the groove to a slinky Philly disco swagger, while on the flip Austrian duo Panoptikum Arkestra go for a stripped back dubby beatdown angle. Local Parisian production talent Walter Mecca calls on the spirit of p-funk and Dilla for a nicely blunted hip-hop take to round out this 12" nicely.

  3. 200 (Asphodells remix)
  4. 200 (Asphodells dub)
Review: REPRESS ALERT: Especial is delighted to welcome Baris to the roster. Known for his edit series of obscure Turkish Psychedelic, Rock and Disco, here he takes the producer's chair to present "200". Working with musicians and singers to create a completely original production. The song's message for equality (of the sexes) highlights the bigotry and backward political and religious boundaries his country faces and acts as a siren to the current troubles. Handed to Emotional Recordings over 5 years ago but with no label to release it at that time, now we are delighted to be able to release 200's message. The original is backed with remixed from new production duo Khidja, as well as East London's finest, The Asphodells. Teaming up with guitarist Balabas, Romania's Khidja turn in a deep and introspective interpretation mixing their own heavy eastern influences, while the B-side sees Weatherall and Fairplay don their Asphodells mantle for two renditions that firmly lay it before the ALFOS alter. With artwork (by Jamie Paton) highlighting the struggle for fairness and freedom in his homeland, we hope the release can be seen as a support for their tribulations and highlight the talent that lays East.
