Review: Dirty Burner Personify dusts off his scalpel for the first time this year with two beautiful, floor-aimed edits of two late 70s soul funk bangers.Soul On Your Side' takes the lead with its belting vocals and even juicier bassline. Meanwhile on the flip You Can Be Star' gets a little tweak in the kick department, a slight extension and a disco bubbled boost for modern floors. Take it personally.

Toxic Funk Vol 4
Cat: BBP 185. Rel: 14 Jan 21
  1. Dance To The Beat (3:13)
  2. Treacherous Love (3:07)
Review: DJ P and the Breakbeat Junkie have been working together as Second Hand Audio for well over a decade, though this contribution to the Toxic Funk series - the fourth in total, fact fans - marks their first joint appearance on Breakbeat Paradise. In keeping with the series' party-starting ethos, A-side 'Dance to the Beat' sees them cannily combine chunky funk breaks with old school hip-hop snippets, vintage soul vocal lifts and jangly instrumental samples from what sounds like a breezy cover version of the Jacksons' 'ABC' (but probably isn't). The smile-inducing fun continues on flipside jam 'Treacherous Love', a slower, hip-hop-tempo number that peppers a head-nodding beat and funk-rock guitars with vocals from an all-star rap number.

Smells Like Teen Spirit (reissue) (7" limited to 200 copies Nachpressung)
Cat: PARK 1033. Rel: 11 Jan 21
  1. Smells Like Teen Spirit (3:16)
  2. Summer Madness (4:01)
Review: Sometimes known as Inokasira Rangers, Park Rangers are a Japanese band who have spent much of the last decade releasing inspired but unlikely instrumental reggae covers of massive rock, pop and disco hits. This 7" single boasts two of their most popular covers, starting with a ridiculously cheery and almost hilariously cheeky version of Nirvana's 'Smells Like Teen Spirit'. Built around a 1960s style rocksteady riddim, it's instantly recognisable thanks to the band's choice to track the tune of Cobain's lead vocal (which naturally isn't present) with a Hammond organ solo. On the flip you'll find a deep reggae-disco cover of Kool & The Gang classic 'Summer Madness'; it's good, but nowhere near as fine as the surprising A-side.

  1. Bounce Castle - "Made You Look" (Bengaluru Bounce remix) (3:04)
  2. Altered Tapes - "Tiger Styles" (36 Chambers remix) (3:40)
Review: Hardcore funk and breaks lovers rejoice - the latest Heat Rock is a real winner. This 7th and final entry into the first series has a pair of world music-influenced bangers on it. The first tune is produced by Bounce Castle from Chicago and is primed for the dance floor with its Bollywood-flavoured vibes and big beats. It's a fresh take on a big tune from QB's Finest. And if you reverse it, fellow Chicagoan Altered Tapes mixes up a Cumbia slash dancehall slash breakbeat version of an iconic song from legendary Wu Tang album 36 Chambers.

  2. Beard In Dust - "Calypso Boy" (6:01)
  3. Nonna Fab - "Tension (Release mix)" (6:35)
  4. Lancaster Bomber - "African Sauna" (7:11)
Review: The Apricot Ballroom crew are operating out of Sheffield and carrying the torch from the foundational work of David Mancuso's Loft parties and similarly spirited affairs like Lucky Cloud. Now they launch a label loaded with smoking hot edits that very much speak to the vibe of their parties - rich, warm 70s grooves that spring from the staple sounds of disco into cool, slick and psychedelic spheres. First up is Joi La Frique with the French flair of 'Family Rally', while Beard In Dust lays down some heavy slapping, cowbell toting funk with 'Calypso Boy'. On the flip, Nonna Fab ups the boogie mood with some nasty Moog action on 'Tension (Release Mix)' before Lancaster Bomber whips up a proto house storm with 'African Sauna'.

Now the French crew at Superfly reissue this super rare collection of some of the band's best work from the 70s and it is an essential collection of superb tunes, Each one is supremely powerful and dynamic thanks to the expert drumming, while psyched out keys add extra elements of magic. It's all pressed dot nice heavyweight vinyl that was made in Japan and is limited to just 1000 copies. 'Wodeka Roe' or the big hit 'Gbeti Madjro' are standouts among many gems.

Cat: SUN 7001YELLOW. Rel: 21 Dec 20
  1. I Believe In Miracles (3:56)
  2. I Believe In Miracles (instrumental) (3:58)
Review: Back in 2010 composer and Latin jazz specialist Claudio Passavanti put together a scaled-down ensemble of Latin musicians and percussionists to record a salsa cover version of the Jackson Sisters disco classic "I Believe In Miracles". The seven-inch single was a riproaring success, with jazz and Afro-Latin DJs around the world turning it into a bona fide scene anthem. Happily, Passavanti has decided to reissue it on red vinyl to celebrate the track's tenth birthday. It's a superb cover all told and, somewhat surprisingly, "I Believe In Miracles" actually works really well as a Salsa record. Full of fiery horns, sing-along, Boogaloo style vocals and infectious percussion, we actually prefer it to the over-played Jackson Sisters take. Recommended!

Hard Lifetime (limited 7")
Cat: MSH 108. Rel: 07 Dec 20
  1. Hard Lifetime (4:12)
  2. Hard Lifetime (instrumental) (4:11)
Review: We're firmly convinced that the A-side of this sneaky seven-inch from Mushi 45 main man Mister Mushi borders on genius. Entitled "Hard Lifetime", it sees the Japanese DJ/producer pepper a killer hip-hop-meets funk groove - all tight horn blasts, addictive drum breaks and jazzy soul guitar riffs - with elements of David Byrne's celebrated vocal from Talking Heads classic "Once in a Lifetime". The whole thing is wonderfully infectious, toe-tapping and hip-wiggling, breathing new life into one of music's most familiar tunes (and, for the record, the production is so good that Byrne's vocal sounds like it was tailor-made for the backing track). You'll find the Mushi one's fine instrumental take, shorn of all Talking Heads references, tucked away on the flipside.

  1. Mary Wells - "Can't You See (You're Losing Me )" (Djar One edit) (4:08)
  2. The Astors - "Uncle Willie Good Time" (Djar One edit) (4:04)
Review: The 11th in Del Gazeebo and Aldo Vanucci's much loved Soul Flip Edits series has been long delayed. Djar One is behind it - and thousands of other releases in the last year, it seems, with more to come, reportedly. The tunes here are high speed, hard hitting funk and breakbeat reworks with tempos well over 145 and 135bpm respectively. The a-side is Mary Wells' northern soul banger 'Can't You See You're Losing Me' remixed with extra bump and on the reverse is a re-souled Astors gem 'Uncle Willie Good Time.' These are as hard and fast as they are great.

Cat: SSR 223. Rel: 07 Dec 20
  1. Ode To Clyde (part 1) (4:03)
  2. Ode To Clyde (part 2) (3:42)
Review: For the latest hot-to-trot missive on his popular Soopastole Edits imprint, DJ Soopasoul has decided to pay tribute to funk's most sampled sticks-man, the late Clyde Stubblefield. Fittingly, he's chosen to do that by chopping up James Brown's 'Funky Drummer', whose much-sampled break was played by Stubblefield and has appeared on countless hip-hop cuts over the years. 'Ode to Clyde (Part 1)' naturally gives Stubblefield's break plenty of airtime, along with the song's hazy funk instrumentation and Brown's rasping lead vocal. Over on the flip Brown takes second billing to a spate of horn solos lifted from the legendary nine-minute version of 'Funky Drummer', with Stubblefield's incredible drumming providing constant dancefloor pressure.

You Don't Have To Worry (remastered)
  1. You Don't Have To Worry (edit) (2:42)
  2. Save Their Souls (edit) (5:00)
Review: The A-side of this tidy 7" is a remastered version of 1967's 'You Don't Have to Worry', a real lost soul classic that has been sampled by so many including 50cent, Common, Wu Tang Clan and Royce 5'9. It has killer vocals right off the bat and might be familiar to you even if you didn't know it, with its gentle beats and poised bass riffs. On the flip is Bohannon's 1973 classic 'Save Their Souls' all freshly remastered and re-edited. It's another popular sample source that has been mined by Jay Z, Large Professor, Musiq Soul child, Craig Mack, Jay Dilla and Pete Rock. It's a funk-filled tune that has carried its greatness through the ages and always strikes all the right notes.

  1. Aretha Franklin & Black Star - "Young, Gifted & Black" (4:50)

Review: Over the past few years, American producer Amerigo Gazaway has delivered some of the most inspired mash ups and bootleg remixes around, including a number that breathe new life into recordings by genuine soul and hip-hop greats. He's at it again here, crafting two killer cuts featuring the late, great Aretha Franklin. He first offers up a head-nodding take on 'Young, Gifted and Black' that cleverly combines his own beats, extended raps from Tallib Kewli and Mos Def as Black Star, and snippets of Aretha at her powerful best. Flip the disc for 'Chain of Fools', a stomping fusion of hip-hop and Detroit soul which sees him flit between Gucci Mane raps and more Aretha goodness.

  1. Teasing You Again (3:09)

Review: This tasty new 7" from Willie Tee is a real work of funk and soul genius. An original copy will cost you too much, basically (L4000) as it is one of the most sought after records in the world. It finds Tee retiring to a previous big hit but updating it with a New Orleans production sound straight for the 70s. The result is a modern soul anthem that is heart aching and sublime. And if you thought the a-side was good, the flip is just as strong, but with a more direct and raw approach, bustling drums and impassioned vocal delivery.

  1. Melody Nelson (unreleased instrumental edit) (3:50)
  2. Cargo Culte (unreleased instrumental edit) (3:58)
Review: This rather tidy, limited-edition "45" offers up two previously unheard instrumental edits of stone cold classics from the bulging back catalogue of Chanson hero and sleazy but chic singer Serge Gainsbourg. Side A boasts a superb revision of "Melody Nelson", a sweeping, string-drenched affair underpinned by sweaty drumming that arguably benefits from the removal of Gainsbourg and Jane Birkin's vocals. Over on side B you'll find an equally evocative version of Beck favourite "Cargo Culte". Stripped of the original lead vocals, the track sounds like a lo-fi art-rock instrumental smothered in ghostly choral vocals and creepy, foreboding musical flourishes. Top stuff!

Review: The Dynamite Cuts crew serve up another scorching 45 here with two legends taking one side a piece. Both of these tracks are making their first ever appearance on vinyl here, the first being by the funk pioneers The Fatback Band. Their 'Fatbackin' is a rare groove classic that has long got b-boy's excited and brims with energy. Flip it over and you'll find 'Matrix' by jazz trumpeter Dizzy Gillespie - famous for his humungous cheeks once he starts playing. It's a massive tune that has been sampled endlessly by the hip-hop world and has a sweet jazz-funk groove that'll make you move.

It's a superb cover all told and, somewhat surprisingly, "I Believe In Miracles" actually works really well as a Salsa record.

  10. Masahiko Sato, Jiro Inagaki & Big Soul Media - "Sniper's Snooze" (6:42)
Review: Some compilations manage to both educate, inform and educate in equal measure; this fine collection from Japanese crate diggers DJ Yoshizawa Dynamite and Chintam is one such set. Comprising mostly little-known tracks recorded by Japanese artists between 1968 and '70, it offers up a wealth of cuts inspired by American jazz-funk "rare groove". There's much to admire across the ten tracks, from the mazy Rhodes solos, fizzing big band jazz grooves and traditional Eastern instrumentation of Toshiko Yonekawa's "Soran Bushi", and the languidly-slung brilliance of Tadaki Misago and Tokyo Cuban Boys' multi-faceted musical fusion "Jongara Reggae", to the Jimi Hendrix-goes-funk heaviness of "Incitation" by Monica Lassen & The Sounds, and the drums-driven dancefloor madness of Masahiko Sato Jiro Inagaki & Big Soul Media's "Sniper's Snooze". Recommended.

  1. Hold On I'm A Comin' (2:28)

Review: The two tracks showcased originally featured on two separate 1967 seven-inch singles by Fred Ramirez, a self-taught Latin-jazz musician and bandleader who had a passion for recording salsa, rumba and mambo-influenced covers of soul and funk hits of the day. Both records are extremely difficult to find these days, in part because collectors rarely part with their cherished copies. The A-side version of Sam & Dave classic 'Hold On, I'm Coming' is simply superb, with Ramirez new arrangement including ear-catching Latin percussion, rousing horns and fluid style piano solos. Over on the flip Ramirez and his band interpret 1960s jazz standard 'Coming Home Baby', delivering a version that sounds like a cross between gangster movie big-band jazz, and Ramsey Lewis classic 'Wade in the Water'. Ace!

Review: Californian artist Diamond Ortiz makes his Neon Finger debut and in doing so brings plenty of his homeland's sunny soul to the fore. This magnificent 7" brims with West Coast influences and low riding beats. The original version on the a-side, '4 Really Tho', is all filtered vocals and squelchy boogie bass that is impossible warm and smooth. Dazzling chords and big hand claps complete the vital cut and then the flip removes the vocal and allows the majestic chords and bass to really shine. This sure is an essential cop for all funk lovers.

Review: The latest edition in DJ Soopasoul's "Soopastole Edits" series looks like it may fly off the shelves, and with good reason. The lead cut is not an edit per se, but rather a crafty, clever and expertly produced mash-up that places selected rap flows from the acapella version of Beastie Boys classic "Ch-Check It Out" over a tightened up and fattened up rearrangement of MFSB's disco-era jam "People All Over The World". Sometimes these kinds of mash-ups can be messy, but this genuinely isn't, with the Beasties' vocals fitting the backing track like a glove. Over on side B Soopasoul shares his tweak of the MFSB track, which is entirely instrumental bar periodic use of the band's female backing vocals. In a word: ace!

Review: Over the years, First Choice's 1983 disco hit 'Let No Man Asunder' has been remixed and re-edited countless times, yet producers are still able to find new ways to reinterpret it. The latest to pass the test with flying colours is DJ Koco AKA Shimokita, who here serves up two fresh reworks. His A-side edit makes the most of the track's infectious groove, jammed-out electric piano chords and spacey synths, eventually introducing the group's brilliant vocals in order to take it to another level. Arguably even better is the stripped-back flipside dub, which sounds like it was crafted from the master tapes. It naturally plays around with the percussion, bassline and vocals, delivering what could be the heaviest take on the track of all time.

  2. MFSB - "People All Over The World" (dub) (4:11)
Review: On his last two singles on Soopastole, mash-up maestro DJ Soopasoul smashed together elements of Stevie Wonder and Redman/Method Man, and James Brown and Crooklyn Dodgers. For his latest trick he's decided to pepper an edited version of "People All Over The World" by Philadelphia Soul legends MFSB, with raps from a stone cold classic Beastie Boys tune. It's the sort of thing that shouldn't work, but the Beasties' flows work perfectly over the flanged guitars, undulating bass and unfussy 4-to-the-floor Philly Soul grooves of the MFSB track. You can hear his instrumental rework of that track on the flip; it's so good that it's arguably worth the entrance price on its own.

Review: Australia's Choi Records drop their second release in the shape of two powerful cover versions either side of a devilish little 7" by The Traffic. The A-side, "White Lines", is a funky, horn-led reinterpretation of Grandmaster Flash's original tune : an instrumental brass ode to the original beast. On the flip, there's "Smack My Pitch Up", another mighty instrumental rework of The Prodigy classic, complete with a string of trumpets that imitate the original's inimitable vocal loop.

Review: This Rare Changes LP is a gathering of singles Mayer Hawthorne realised between June 2019 and July 2020. There is a booklet with each ones unique covert art and the artist dedicates the record to "the brave people of planet earth who are holding hands and fighting for the rare changes." Musically it is a heartwarming slow motion funk affair, with gentle chords and sun kissed guitars over tumbling drums. Hawthorne's vocals soar up top and always manage to sound tender, vulnerable, and real. 'Over' is a short but sweet gem with 'Only You' coming on a hip hop leaning beat.

Bollywood Express (7" limited to 250 copies)
Cat: FNR 147. Rel: 06 Jan 21
  1. Bollywood Express (2:26)
  2. Practise Witchcraft (2:20)
Review: This stone cold slice of 7"s of funk comes all the way from Finland but takes you on a journey much further away. As the title suggests has some mad sitar action stitched into the raw and stuttering drum breaks on the A-side. It's a bristling groove to inject any floor with energy and worldly goodness. On the flip is 'Practise Witchcraft,' a more deep, slow moving groove that brings some psyched out sounds and a late night sense of playful soul. This one is limited to 250 copies so move fast.

Cat: NW 6. Rel: 26 Nov 20
  1. Yusef Lateef - "Love Theme From Spartacus" (2:57)
  2. Cannonball Adderley Sextet - "Brother John" (2:24)
Review: This must-check dinked 45 brings together two killer and influential jazz recordings from the early 1960s. On the A-side you'll find Yusuf Lateef's inspired cover of Alen North's 'Spartacus Love Theme', a shuffling, Latin-tinged, piano-laden affair that inspired many subsequent interpretations from fellow musical titans (think Ramsey Lewis, Carlos Santana, Eddie Harris and Bill Evans, for starters). It's an effortlessly breezy and life-affirming version that stands apart from the hard-bop jazz jams that Lateef was recording at the time. On the flip you'll find the scarce 7" edit of the Cannonball Alderley Sextet's recording of 'Brother John', a cool jazz interpretation that famously features a rare oboe solo from the track's composer (and Sextet member), Yusuf Lateef.

Modernization

  1. Modernization (5:03)
  2. Hey There (4:48)
Review: Graham Luckhurst and Gary Johnson's picks for their reissue-focused Pressure Makes Diamonds label have thus far been top-notch, with the vast majority of chosen recordings being as essential as they are exceedingly rare. Here they deliver a much-needed new pressing - albeit in limited numbers - of Sons of the Kingdom's most sought-after double A-side. The Israel-based American group - members of the "Black Hebrew" movement of the period - originally recorded and released the brilliant modern soul/deep soul fusion cuts 'Modernization' and 'Hey There' in 1978, though the artwork on this reissue takes more cues from the former song's 1980 reissue on K.O.G. Both cuts are simply superb, so we'd suggest not hanging around if you want a copy.

Rare Grooves Volume 2
  1. Lou Courtney - "Hey Joyce" (2:46)
  2. Johnnie Taylor - "Just The One (I've Been Looking For )" (2:42)
Review: This essential 45 brings together two hard-to-find cuts that have long been popular amongst rare groove dancers and dusty-fingered hip-hop DJs/beat-makers. On side A you'll find Cut Chemist fave 'Hey Joyce', a rare 1967 single from soul man Lou Courtney. Featuring a rasping, impassioned lead vocal from Courtney, sweet female backing vocals and the kind of semi-stomping beat that's so beloved by Northern Soul heads, it's a real must-have treat. Over on the flip you'll find Johnnie Taylor's more relaxed - but no less passionate - 'Just The One I've Been Looking For', a 1966 Stax B-side that remains a fine example of warming Southern Soul.

The Mexican (reissue)
Cat: S71 3351. Rel: 27 Jul 20
  1. The Mexican (5:47)
  2. Theme From 'For A Few Dollars More' (2:17)
Review: Given the recent passing of Ennio Morricone, it seems fitting that we're being treated to a reissue of Babe Ruth's "The Mexican", a scorching funk-rock number based on the late, great Italian composer's theme from "For A Few Dollars More". The band's cover of that can be heard on the B-side, but it's the five-minute A-side, which boasts lyrics calling out the misleading narrative of John Wayne western "The Alamo", that you need in your life. Full of killer funk breaks that became staples during hip-hop's foundational block party era, plus driving musicality and some of rap music's best-known hooks, the track is still capable of slaying dancefloors 47 years after it was first recorded.

Review: Jazz drummer and bandleader Takeshi Inomata made some terrific records over the course of his career, though few are quite as dazzling and incendiary as Sounds of Sound Ltd, his 1970 set with regular studio band Sound Ltd. Appearing at a time when the boundaries between jazz, jazz-funk and jazz-rock were becoming increasingly blurred, the set delivers good grooves, mazy solos and life-affirming musical motifs in equal measure. Throw in a wealth of energetic, on-point drum solos from Inomata and you have a set that sounds every bit as righteous and inspired in 2021 as it did half a century ago.

  1. Kool & The Gang, Gene Redd - "Give It Up" (DJ Soopasoul edit) (4:04)
  2. Aretha Franklin - "Rock Steady" (DJ Soopasoul edit) (3:30)
Review: Fast-fingered mash-up merchant and lauded scalpel fiend DJ Soopasoul can usually be relied upon to bring the goods. In fact, we've yet to hear an edition of his "Soopastole Edits" series that doesn't include the kind of sure-fire, party-starting fare guaranteed to get any DJ out of a dancefloor hole of their own making. Should you still doubt the validity of this statement, we suggest you check this timely reissue of the series' second volume, which has been going for serious bucks online. On side A you'll find a suitably punchy, funky and chunky revision of Kool & The Gang's Gene Redd produced 1970 jam "Give It Up" - the original source of one of hip-hops most familiar breakbeats - with a tight, club-ready revision of Aretha Franklin classic "Rock Steady" on the flip.

  1. Little Sunflower (9:11)
Review: Best known amongst house heads for being the source of the lilting orchestral sample in Pepe Bradock's "Deep Burnt", Freddie Hubbard's 1979 version of "Little Sunflower" is a soul-jazz classic and a half. Since the full version of Hubbard's vocal re-make (the trumpeter first recorded an instrumental take in 1968) only ever appeared on a hard-to-find promo 12", this Record Store Day reissue should be an essential purchase. It remains a gentle, breezy and sunset-ready jazz-dance gem, with Hubbard's emotion-rich vocals and mazy trumpet solos riding Latin-tinged percussion, elastic double bass and some suitably jammed-out jazz pianos. In other words, it's the kind of life-affirming treat that's capable of spreading sunshine on even the cloudiest day.

  1. James Brown - "Funky President" (extended breaks special edition) (4:25)
  2. The Vibrettes - "Humpty Dump" (part 1 - extended breaks special edition) (3:16)
Review: New 7" label Beats & Breaks present "Funky President" which is a funk song originally released as a single in 1974, by the hardest working man in show business at the time - the Godfather of Soul - James Brown. It appeared on his 4nd (!) album entitled 'Reality' released that same year. According to Brown, the song's title referred to U.S. President Gerald Ford - who succeeded Richard Nixon in the White House shortly before it was recorded. It is one of Brown's most frequently sampled recordings. The rhythmic portions of the song have been used on dozens of hip hop tracks. On the flip, The Vibrettes' "Humpty Dump" is another killer funk number that was recorded by one Roscoe Porter and originally released by Lujon back in 1973. The sample source for many a respected beat by such legends as J. Dilla, Four Tet, 2 Bad Mice and even Aphex Twin.

  2. Standing In The Need Of Love (2:00)
Review: Back in 2012, Outta Sight dipped into the Cameo-Parkway catalogue in order to offer a first ever "45" pressing of Dee Dee Sharp's 1963 version of 'Comin' Home Baby', which was originally featured on the Philadelphian vocalist's sixth solo album, All The Hits (Volume 2). Eight years on the label has decided to issue a new, limited-edition pressing on vibrant red vinyl. Her version of the Mel Torme favourite is superb and arguably even better than the more famous and celebrated original recording. It comes backed with Sharp's deliciously stomping, uplifting 1965 take on Barrett Strong song 'Standing in the Need of Love', a version that should appeal to Northern Soul DJs and dancers across the UK.

Review: Foremost contemporary funk label Peoples Potential Unlimited have another golden 12" on their hands here thanks to the work of Barnikle Freee. He is the current designer for the label, someone who hoards software and makes expert glitch funk as well as being a multi-string bassist. As ever with this label, it is lo-fi, subtle sounds and frayed edges that define the EPs lovely aesthetic, with roughshod grooves, tumbling kicks and scatter perc all making you want to cut loose and boogie. Part dream-scape, part hazy late night session, part live set, it's all good.

Review: More Toxic Funk flavours from the Breakbeat Paradise crew, who've cannily snapped up a couple of killer collaborations from Prosper and Badboe. The experienced pair predictably goes in hard on A-side 'Beastie Lifestyle', where a classic Beastie Boys acapella is slapped down hard on a brand-new heavy funk-meets-breakbeat backing track that comes laden with mazy electric piano solos and fiery horns courtesy of Le Marabout. They change tack slightly on 'Without Funk', joining the dots between a handful of killer samples on a P-funk flavoured workout that's every bit as addictive and ear-pleasing as the duo's A-side banger.
