The Big Bonus Beats
Cat: SRW 023. Rel: 02 Dec 21
  1. The Big Bonus Beats (A Jorun Bombay edit) (2:26)
  2. Jamaican Funk (A Jorun Bombay edit) (4:40)
Review: Jorun Bombay is back once again with more of his masterful beat mash ups and beat juggling 7"s. This is his second this week - well, it's a black wax version of the same EP where the other is bright pink, both on Soundweight. He opens up with 'The Big Bonus Beats' (A Jorun Bombay edit) which has crashing drum hits and an iconic vocal mashed together with some funky guitar riffs and plenty of big, oversized and splashing cymbals. 'Jamaican Funk (A Jorun Bombay edit)' is a super sweet jam with a plunging synth bassline and more classic vocal samples that lend it a neo-soul feel.

Review: A relatively new duo consisting of Zurich musicians Schweizer and Shiller, Fuga Ronto's original music is the epitome of what new music heads know as 'balearic chuggers' - or 'bluggers', as we like to call them. With elements of synthfunk, dub and new wave, standouts from this sweat-glazed, beachside-worthy mini-album include 'Falling Star' and 'Wobble In The Pool', throwing all manner of domestic samples and adventure film quotes into the mix for good measure. Nailing fusions between song and film - resulting in the sonic equivalent to an exotic voodoo voyage - each track title reads like the name of a forgotten B-movie. Now you can snaffle up the first press of this slap-bassing, multilingual dance project on limited black vinyl.

  2. Slave (6:08)
Review: Multitrack Reworks is a new label that will be putting out limited edition, hand-stamped white label 12"s that are made from reworked tunes that have been constructed from the original multitracks. Kicking off the first one is the queen of soul that is Chaka Khan and a version of 'Clouds' with nice loose drums, big string builds and a silky vocal. Flip it over and you will find a brilliantly dynamic and funky new take on the most classic Grace Jones jam, 'Slave To The Rhythm.' It's packed with plenty of rich instrumental licks, a flamboyant sense of melody and of course Grace's own seductive voice.

Review: United Disco Organisation have been tapped up by the ATA label for its first voyage into the world of disco. The band is made up of producer and bassist Neil Innes and guitarist and singer Chris Dawkins and here they head off to the cosmos with a classically inclined sound that comes with lashings of Philly soul influences. 'Send The Rain' opens things up and features a fine flute lead from label-mate Tony Burkill. Dawkins's vocals then take the lead over a nice woody, organic groove and an instrumental is also featured. 'Funky Thing' is a glossy, vibes-heavy tune with big melodies and chunky drum funk.

Fat Mouth

  1. Fat Mouth (7:14)
  2. Turkish Bath (6:55)
Review: Back in the 80s, Weldon Johnathan Irvine was a core part of the sul, jazz and funk scene. He was an amiable man who put out plenty of records that reflected that and now some of them are making their way onto 45rpm for the first time ever. This latest 7" opens with 'Fat Mouth' which is a busy and dynamic cut with mad keys work, crashing drums and a real sense of urgency as it hurries along. There is a more reflective and thoughtful mood to the gorgeous flip side, which encourages the mind to wander on the heart chords and breezy grooves.

Review: Mr. Weldon Johnathan Irvine is one of the many great artists who were part of the 80s funk, jazz, and soul scene. He is said to have been a super clam and gentle soul and that is clear from the music, which is superbly laidback and welcoming. This 45rpm takes a nice breezy jaunt through his jazzy world with innovative keyboard work and warm double bass and horns. There is a more smoky sound on the b-side which is a chill groove with lovely melodica and guitar sounds to nod along to. This is the first time this music has been available on 7".

Sexy Lady (12")
Cat: BK 040. Rel: 29 Nov 21
  1. Sexy Lady (5:14)
  2. Keep Dancing (4:13)
Review: Having recently delivered a string of must-have Brit-funk reissues, the crate diggers at Backatcha Records are now treating us to some seriously obscure tropical disco. Both tracks originally appeared on the flipside of a self-released, 1982 EP from St Kitts and Nevis percussionist and vocalist Gerard PJ Brown. Both cuts were recorded in Puerto Rico, but the sound is undeniably Caribbean in flavour. 'Sexy Lady' is a killer boogie-era disco number laden with spacey synth sounds, rubbery bass and punchy brass, with Brown's vocals sat atop. Over on the flip, 'Keep Dancing' is a superb dub disco number in which Brown's percussion skills come to the fore atop a synth-sporting reggae groove. In a word: essential!

Review: Soul Jazz Records are focusing on the fertile New Orleans scene right and and are reissuing a load of out of print, hard to find or eye watering expensive 45rpms. Most of them have been written and produced by the legendary funk machine that is Eddie Bo and this one features in the pocket drum playing from New Orleans's great James Black. His super tight rhythms power along both parts of these big, party start funk tunes. Expressive and guttural vocals light up each one with plenty of horns for good measure.

Review: West Coast Revival, as the name suggests, was a band of male soul vocalists from California. They put out just three singles and one album, West Coast Revival, in 1977, which is a breezy and heart-swelling collection of upbeat surf-funk gems. It is one of those that will cost you a pretty penny on the second-hand market if you can find a copy, and the sort of easy to listen to album that never grows old. The vocal harmonies are buttery sweet, the grooves and tight and smooth, and the overall sound is polished but never overly so.

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.

Review: Weldon Johnathan Irvine is enjoying a return to the spot light this month as Dynamite Cuts serve up a trio of reissues of some of his best work. He recorded it all during the 80s, when the British funk, soul and jazz scene was at its most vibrant best and this is a fine expand of that. As always with this famously relaxed and easy going artist work, the music reflects his warm spirit in sound. This limited 45rpm opens with a special 7" cut of 'Deja Vu' which is mellifluous and glowing thanks to the molten Rhodes chords. On the flip is 'I Am' and then 'Bananas' gets you shaking your limbs with its off-grid beats and busy chord work.

  1. Wheel Spin (Revision) (4:50)

Review: Acclaimed French producer The Reflex is back on his Flex7 imprint. The Reflex moniker is part tribute to Nile Rodgers' remix of Duran Duran's 1984 song of the same name and a nod to the Logic Pro production software's Flextime tool, which allows users to alter and sync audio files. It's business as usual on this one, with two remixes direct from the master tapes combining creativity and functionality for maximum dancefloor impact. On the A side you've got the low slung yet elevating soul power of 'Wheel Spin' (Revision), while over on the flip there's the downtown vocal funk of 'Giv It Up' (Revision).

Review: Calvin "Popcorn" Ward is one of those legendary musical figures form time gone by. He put out just one album and a couple of Eps, but they were good enough to secure him an enduring elegy with funk and soul fans. His Prime Choice album came on Shanell in 1983 and the one copy currently for sale on second-hand sites is over 630 quid. Thankfully Mad About has assembled this heavyweight reissue. Sentimental soul, analogue disco and lo-fi funk all characterise each tune, as does Calvin's own vocals which range from upbeat and positive to heartbroken and raw. A real gem.

Review: Archeo know how to hunt down a rare jam and give it the kind of reissue it deserves, so who better to handle this job? Tonica & Dominante was a studio project conceived by Antonio Iglio and Antonio Moxedano, which yielded a couple of singles and an album at the end of the 70s. It's a warm, organic sound before Italo disco swerved hard towards synthesisers and drum machines, and you can see why anyone digging for the rarest grooves would go crazy for the two tracks on this previously rare-as-hell 7". This new Archeo version ports the original tracks onto 12" and folds in two tasteful, clubbed-up dub mixes from Leo Mas & Fabrice.

Ritmo Matizon

  1. Ritmo Martizon (3:28)
  2. Pa Gozar (5:56)
Review: If you're into little-known South American gems from the dim and distant past, Mexico City's Discodelic label has got you covered. This limited-edition "45" marks the second instalment of their ongoing "Nicaraguan Afro-Latin" series and offers-up two deep cuts from the catalogue of tropical Afro-rock kings Bwama. Both tracks were originally featured on the band's second self-titled album in 1972. Our pick of the pair is A-side 'Ritmo Martizon', a richly percussive fusion of Guajira rhythms, salsa style pianos, gravelly funk-rock guitars and life-affirming vocals. That said, flipside 'Pa Goza' - a funky, shoulder-swinging affair featuring duelling organ and guitar lines atop a locked-in Latin beat - is also superb. In a word: essential!

  9. Kuarup (4:29)
Review: Here's something special: a luscious, far-sighted solo album from Azymuth bassist Alex Malheiros, produced by rising star (and son of Brit-funk/acid jazz legend Bluey) Daniel Maunick. It's a predictably warming, slick and summery affair whose tracks casually - and successfully - join the dots between Azymuth style jazz-funk, samba, Brit-funk, Weather Report and rubbery, sun-soaked deepness. As you'd expect, the musicianship is impeccable (Malheiros' own bass parts are stunning and as fluid as you'd expect), while Maunick's production is polished without being overtly clinical. The result is a hugely enjoyable set that may well become regarded as a contemporary jazz-funk classic.

Review: El Trio was Pocho Lapouble, Ricardo Lew and Adalberto Cevasco, a collective of seventies jazz musicians from Argentina. Their Todo En Su Medida Y Armoniosamente album is a cult classic from 1974 which marked them out as some of South America's most important artists and an original copy will cost you upwards of L350. It is a fusion of soul, jazz, a little folk and plenty of funk. Tracks like 'Albarraseis' are earthy and organic affairs that take you to the Argentine countryside, while 'Quien Se Llevo A Mi Negra?' is a more funky and rocking beat for the clubs. The record has aged well and still sounds fresh all these years later.

Non Si Deve Profanare Il Sonno Dei Morti (Soundtrack)
  1. John Dalton Street (2:25)
  2. Manchester M2 6LD (2:26)
Review: Those with a deep knowledge of cult Italian horror movies should be aware of the work of Giulliano Sorgini, and in particular his soundtrack to Non Si Deve Profanre Il Sonno Dei Mortie (a movie known in English as both The Living Dead at the Manchester Morgue and Let Sleeping Corpses Lie). This Four Flies Records' "45" boasts two of the most potent recordings from the soundtrack. On the A-side you'll find the movie's main theme, 'John Dalton Theme', a superb slab of zombified psych-funk laden with simmering horror strings, loose-limbed percussion solos, crunchy drum-breaks and toasty bass. Over o the flip you'll find 'Manchester M2 6LD', a stripped-back reprise version that replaces Sorgini's cut-glass strings with sustained Hammond organ chords. Happily, the killer groove and righteous drum solos remain in-tact.

Review: Stetasonic was a short lived American hip-hop group who managed to put out three strong albums in their short time together. It was a remix of their 'Talking All That Jazz' by Dimitri From Paris that resurrected interest in the group in 1998 and now this 7" continues to shine a light on the often forgotten group. After a release on black wax last it, it now comes on limited red 7". (Now Ya'll Givin' Up) Love' is a hard hitting beat with a tense atmosphere. The crashing hits and reverberating drums break only for big stabs to light up the groove, all the while the biting rhymes keep on coming. An a cappella is provided on the flip for more adventurous DJs.

Review: The Whatnauts are best known for their evergreen classic 'Help Is On The Way', but they've got a mighty fine catalogue which goes deeper and further than just that tune. Here Dynamite Cuts gather up three essentials and press them to a 7" for your convenience, leading in with 1972's 'Why Can't People Be Colours Too?' from the Whatnauts On The Rocks album. When the break drops, you'll fully understand why it got picked - pure understated perfection. 'Souling With The Whatnauts' and 'Message From A Black Man' are both taken from 1970s Introducing The Whatnauts, offering up a more mellow, reflective side of this cult Baltimore group.

Review: Breakbeat Paradise serves up some big joints for b-boys and b-girls. There is a decidedly old school feel to these tunes that harks back to the glory days of early block parties in the streets of New York and its surrounding boroughs. The vital 45rm opens with 'Put Your Catz Up,' a jumbled of big horns, lively vocal chants and tumbling, wooden drums and hits that is all about getting crowds up on their toes. 'Hot Jumpin'' cuts loose on more leggy drums, with old school whistles and a classic vocal refrain that demand everybody get up and jump, and surely they will.

Review: The unequalled Soul Jazz label is serving up some monster funk this month and they don't come much bigger than these two cuts from Chuck Carbo. Opener 'Can I Be Your Squeeze' is a super catchy, break heavy and funk fulled party jam to destroy the floor. Written and produced by the celebrated Eddie Bo, it comes with big drums from New Orleans stick man James Black. On the flip is the ever so slightly more mellow but not less dance 'Take Care Your Homework Friend.' These have long been hard to find and now come pressed nice and loud on fresh wax.

Review:  Vocalist Jodie Richardson continues to assert herself as a modern soul sensation with this new one on Original Gravity. Featuring Neil Anderson on production, drums, bass and keys, this one could be a double a-side such is the equally brilliance of both tunes. 'Pushover' is a powerful tune with driving rhythms backed by big horns as Jodie's beautiful vocals race along up top. It's steeped in classic soul references and is brilliantly unrelenting. On the flip side, 'Treat Me Better' is another belter, this time rolling a little deeper with empowering lyrics about searching for someone better over super tight stick work.

On the flip is the Vega Trumpet dub which places some florid leads way up high and the rest of the funk tune follows through a course of highs and lows.

  1. Superstition (5:34)
  2. Shades Of Hades (3:08)
Review: When deciding on tracks to release on '45' for the first time, the Dynamite Cuts team seems to mine a mixture of sought-after sets, familiar favourites and overlooked obscurities. This single falls int the latter category, featuring as it does two killer cuts from Funk In Hell, a 1976 album by library music collective-turned-instrumental funk outfit Button Down Brass (a band founded by trumpeter and arranger Ray Davies). A-side 'Superstition' is simply superb: a down-low cover of Stevie Wonder classic 'Superstition' that sits somewhere between down-low library funk and Blaxploitation movie soundtracks, with a dash of big band funk thrown in. Instrumental flipside 'Shades of Hades' is equally as vibrant, with elongated electric guitar notes, heady hand percussion and spacey synth sounds combining superbly with spy-funk horns and weighty bass.As played by DJ Muro from Japan

Cat: PINKY 1. Rel: 19 Nov 21
  1. Keep In Touch (6:50)
  2. Keep In Touch (edit) (5:43)
Review: The well-regarded Far Out label starts a new catalogue number series for this first reissue from Brit-funk band Freeze. They are of course best known for lighting up the charts and dance floors of the 1908s with their super hit 'Southern Freeez' but also penned plenty of other gems. 'Keep In Touch' is right up there amongst them and now comes as an original and edited version on heavyweight vinyl. It is a joyful track packed with busy jazz-funk keys that cannot fail to amp up the party, especially in unison with a busy and tight bass riff and hip-swinging claps and drums. The edit shortness things up t make for an even more potent gem.

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.

Review: In the forty-two years since the release of Ege Bamyasi, no-one has done as much to blend the spheres of experimental rock music and the avant-garde than Can, whilst also maintaining a hip-shaking primal pulse and delivering a radiant wash of kaleidoscopic sound that defies classification. Ege Bamyasi still stands as one of their crowning achievements, and one whose spooky reverberations have made their presence felt throughout a mighty chunk of the rock and dance music of the decades that have followed. An otherworldly masterclass for the ages.

The Revolution Will Not Be Televised
  1. The Revolution Will Not Be Televised
  2. Home Is Where the Hatred Is
Review: Wow, classics don't come much more special than this. A like-for-like repress of the 1970 RCA release, both sides here are soaked in Scott Heron's raw troubled soul. The endlessly sampled, hugely powerful and perfectly funky "Revolution" remains almost as poignant and prophetic as it was the day it was penned. "Home Is Where The Hatred Is" is much more personal and reveals his talent as a singer as much as the lead track boasts his poetry and ability to deliver a strong message.

  1. On The One (feat Mr Auden Allen & Renegade Brass Band) (3:25)
  2. Nagu (3:37)
Review: Rising star Sam Redmore has a debut album on the way. That will be one to look out for in 2022, but first he's treating us to a handful of teaser singles. The latest, 'On The One', is genuinely special. Built around a skittish, Tony Allen style drum-beat and complimentary horns from the fantastic Renegade Jazz Brass Band, it's a 21st century update of the Fela Kuti Afrobeat sound topped off with rapped lead vocals from Mr Auden Allen. He continues the party-starting vibe on flipside 'Nagu', a genuinely heavy, full throttle fusion of Afrobeat and house laden with swooping strings, sun-bright funk guitar licks and weighty bass. It isn't quite as cultured as the A-side, but it's still a rock-solid peak-time bomb.

  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'.

Gurami (7")
Cat: RK 45086. Rel: 25 Nov 21
  1. Gurami (4:13)
  2. Gradients (3:43)
Review: The sublime 'Gurami' is the first single from the forthcoming Origin of Forms album. It makes a debut long player from the Moscow funk band The Diasonics and it is a richly layered and widely cinematic affair with post-Soviet era psychedelia, deep funk, and instrumental hip-hop colouring the grooves, But ahead of this comes the equally deep-cut 'Gurami' on limited edition 45rpm. It has rolling drums and a nice psyched-out wah wah guitar and meandering leads that truly mesmerise. The go-slow 'Gradients' is falloff intrigue and mystery as it unfolds in thoughtful and alluring fashion.

Review: London-based French producer The Reflex is back, here inaugurating his new vinyl series Flex7. Bringing this bunch of rare grooves (from the original tapes) for some edits that combine creativity and functionality - all with maximum dancefloor impact. On the A side, we've got the pitched-down slo-mo funk attack of "Good High" which is as low slung as you like it. On the flip, we have someone doing a half decent job of impersonating "the hardest working man in show business" on the addictive soul power of "Engine #9".

  1. Devika (Goddess) (4:21)
  2. Expansions (4:08)
Review: Los Angeles' Alex Santos Orchestra previously paid tribute to classic jazz-funk imprint Red Clay Records via a 45 featuring covers of two classic cuts. On this follow-up, they've turned their attention to another similarly lauded label, Flying Dutchman Records, offering their interpretations of two tracks associated with one of the imprint's most-loved artists, Lonnie Liston Smith. On the A-side they handle 'Devika (Goddess)', a David Hubbard composition that they re-frame as an atmospheric, bass guitar-led slab of laidback, head-nodding jazz funk full of warming electric piano, flanged funk guitars and hazy horns. Arguably even better is their party-starting take on Liston-Smith's most celebrated tune, 'Expansions', whose familiar bassline and infectious groove never fails to get dancefloors moving.

What Color?
  1. What Color? (3:55)
  2. What Color? (instrumental) (3:55)
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....
