  1. Got To Get Your Love (Muro Diguma edit) (5:21)
  2. Got To Get Your Love (Muro Diguma edit - instrumental) (4:15)
Review: The latest set of Diguma Edits sees dusty-fingered Japanese digger-turned-re-editor DJ Muro take his scalpel to 'Got to Get Your Love' by Clyde Alexander & Sanction, a suspenseful and action-packed 1980 number from producers Peter Brown and Gary Davis. Muro first cuts down and compresses the ten-minute vocal version, making merry with the track's unusual combination of classic disco grooves, showtunes-style orchestration and eccentric vocals. Over on the flip he does a similar job on the slightly different instrumental take, in turns showcasing the track's crunchy guitars, warming electric pianos, spacey synths and grandiose orchestration.

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.

  1. Beastie Boys Vs MFSB - "Check It Out People" (4:19)
  2. MFSB - "People All Over The World" (dub) (4:08)
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!

  1. Best Friend Around - "It's So Good To Know" (Muro Diguma edit) (4:36)
  2. Foster Jackson Group - "Feel The Spirit" (Muro Diguma edit) (4:10)
Review: Given his reputation as Japan's "king of digging", you'll be unsurprised to learn that DJ Muro's latest scalpel-style Diguma Edits are of thoroughly obscure, hard-to-find disco cuts. For example, an original copy of Best Friend Around's hard to find modern soul-goes-disco number 'It's So Good to Know' - a warming and glassy-eyed cut full of hazy grooves, super-sweet vocals and spacey synth sounds - would cost you hundreds of pounds; Muro's shortened, light-touch edit seems a bargain at a fraction of the cost. Foaster Jackon Group's similarly rare 'Feel the Spirit', a carnival-ready slab of Brazilian influenced jazz-funk/disco-funk fusion, is given the Muro touch on the flip, with equally as exemplary results.

Nation Song
Cat: P 74502. Rel: 19 Jan 21
  1. Nation Song (3:32)
  2. Groovin' At The Night Club (4:42)
Review: Burton Inc is perhaps not one of the better-known soul bands of the late 1970s. Formed by married couple Charles and Barbara Burton and featuring their son Tire amongst the backing musicians, the band recorded and released one album, 1976's L.A Will Make You Pay $$$, on their own private press imprint. It's from that set that these two tracks are taken. A-side 'Nation Song' is a glossy, slow-motion call for global unity featuring the twin attractions of incredible horn arrangements and spacey synthesizers (not to mention a fine lead vocal from Barbara), while flipside 'Groovin At The Night Club' is a slightly more up-tempo affair rich in jazzy guitar flourishes, fluid bass guitar and more incredible horn sounds.

Cat: FR 001BLACK. Rel: 21 Jan 21
  1. Tangerine Dreams (3:15)
  2. Two Mile Hill (3:09)
Review: Straight out of Bristol comes a brand-new label from Tom Friend, the avuncular vinyl obsessive behind the Friendly Records store and bar. The inaugural release on Friendly Recordings fittingly comes from a local talent, promising newcomer Claude Cooper. What's on offer very much taps into Bristol's post-punk history, with excellent A-side 'Tangerine Dreams' sounding like the sax-wielding mutant offspring of Rip, Rig & Panic and Maximum Joy - all bold, rubbery double bass, frenetic breakbeats and delay-laden horn solos. B-side 'Two Mile Hill', which was named in honour of a road in Bristol near Cooper's house, offers an extra-percussive and moodier variation on a similar theme. In a word: terrific!

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.

  1. Spill The Wine (4:03)
  2. Scorpio (3:27)
Review: Way back in the dim and distant mists of time - most likely the early '70s - the Johnny Frigo Sextet recorded a now highly sought-after album with "electric jazz" specialist Gus Girdano. That set contained tons of great covers of now classic soul, funk, and jazz-funk jams, two of which are featured on this superb seven-inch. On the A-side Frigo and company deliver a Latin jazz-flavoured shuffle through War's 'Spill The Wine', where electric piano melodies, toasty bass and fluttering flute solos catch the ear. Over on the flip they tackle Dennis Coffey favourite 'Scorpio', wisely emphasizing the track's killer drum-breaks and weighty funk-rock riffs. It's a deliciously percussive, Incredible Bongo Band style cover that should find favour with turntablists across the world.

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'.

Review: Idris's fifth and perhaps most popular of his near-20 LP strong solo discography (that's not including the epic array of artists he's worked with from Fats Domino to Art Davis) Ranging from the heavily-sampled stone-cold soul stunner "Could Heaven Ever Be Like This" to silky disco funk such as the album title track and the sleazier "Crab Apple" to the frenetic jazz blasts of tracks such as "Camby Bolongo", this is the sound of a man fully committed to the craft and spirit of the groove. Nothing short of essential.

Review: It's hard to talk about anything other than the electrifying intensity Jorge Navarro's music manages to hit, no matter what the beginning of the track sounded like. A master of funk, he's among the most significant artists to help shape and direct jazz in Argentina, taking up responsibility for his homeland's mood, timing and rhythmic personality from the 1950s onwards, with this seven-track album arguably the most definitive Navarro moments, not least given the meaning of its title.

An expression used to describe something with great energy or strength, at this point in his career the aficionado had just spent a few years in the US, and the inspiration from that trip, the ideas and jumping off points were distilled into this record. Hence its remarkable immediacy and captivating sense of spontaneity.

  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.

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.

  4. Portisheadshop (2:25)
Review: If you're on the lookout for some hedonistic, party-starting fare, we'd highly recommend this bonus seven-inch from Ogogo's ongoing Oonop Drops series. The theme is "ruff cuts", with the Ruffcats setting the agenda on side A, joining forces with Allergies' mic man Andy Cooper for the jazzy funk breaks-meets-scratch-happy-hip-hop heaviness that is the Slick Walk remix of 'On The Run'. That comes accompanied on side A by a typically tight and heavy instrumental version. Over on the flip, 6th Generation take over with 'Remember Us', a jazzy, deep and bass-heavy instrumental hip-hop number of the type that Grand Central Records' used to champion, before Clockwerk and Birdmoves wrap things up via the smoky trip-hop head-nod that is 'Portisheadshop'.

Originally released in 2005, it contains most of the pair's most celebrated soul/jazz fusion works - including 'The Bottle', 'Winter in America' and 'Home is Where The Hatred Is' (albeit in expanded live form) - alongside some deeper picks, slept-on album cuts and genuinely inspired moments such as 'Racetrack in France', a 1977 cut that boasts some seriously squelchy, proto-acid electronics, and 'Hold On To Your Dreams'.

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.

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!

  1. Freaky With You (6:29)
  2. Welcome To My World (5:11)
Review: Few soul labels are quite as good at sniffing out previously unreleased material as Family Groove Records. Their tireless digging frequently unearths hidden musical treasure such as these two tracks, which date from the earliest days of Louisiana outfit Superior Elevation. Both tracks were apparently recorded in 1879 at Sea-Saint in New Orleands, the near mythical studio owned by Allen Toussaint. First up is 'Freaky With You', a breathlessly energetic psychedelic disco romp laden with sweaty hand percussion, flash-fried vocals, rubbery slap bass and eyes-closed funk-rock guitar licks. In contrast, 'Welcome to My World' is a slow and seductive, two-step style modern soul number that's as sweet as it is loved-up.

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.

  12. Pachanga Con Guaguanco (2:12)
Review: Collectors will happily tell you that Al Valdez's Gonzando! has long been considered one of the "holy grails" of Cuban music, despite the fact that the pianist actually recorded it in Lima, Peru, in the mid 1960s. Thankfully, Vampi Soul has licensed it and delivered this fine facsimile edition, allowing those without serious record hunting skills (and a budget to match) the chance to enjoy its' breezy, life-affirming blend of salsa, Pachanga, mambo, descarga, guaracha, bolero and, most surprisingly, cumbia. Valdez is in fine form throughout, both on the piano and on the microphone, while the accompanying percussionists and big band-style backing group never miss a beat.

F (limited hand-stamped 7")
Cat: 45 LF. Rel: 22 Dec 20
  1. Venice Beach - "F" (5:03)
  2. Jay Airiness - "FF" (5:02)
Review: It's been a pretty successful year for 45 Loves, when all is said and done. The French imprint has managed to maintain a seriously high release quality throughout one of the toughest times in modern music history. Better yet, it has been serving up exactly what most of us have needed during this impossible era - disco music laced with a positive energy and cult elec-pop bits.

Venice Beach's 'F' is certainly a party-starter, to put it mildly. Vocals straight from the backing chorus of a Tom Tom Club banger, undercarriage destined for an Ibiza terrace if they ever open again, it makes keeping still more than difficult. Flip it to find 'FF' from Jay Airlines, an altogether dustier and more stoned affair, robbing samples from Lou Reed's 'Walk On The Wild Side' and adding punchy drums to introduce some lazy dancefloor potential.

Cool Sound Of Everything: Chillin' Around Xmas
Cat: FNR 175. Rel: 21 Dec 20
  1. Meeting At Flea Market (3:40)
  2. Shades Of Pale (3:35)
Review: While most of us will (sadly) not be going anywhere this holiday season, we can still get a musical taster of what it would be like Chilling at Christmas in the St Petersburg studio of modern funk apostles the Vicious Seeds. Their festive offering is a drowsy, deep, slow and laidback affair - the kind of jazzy instrumental soul and funk that would probably go well with a few mince pies and a needlessly large glass of port. A-side 'Meeting at Flea Market' is particularly lovely, with trombone and trumpet-heavy riffs and leisurely jazz guitar solos making themselves comfortable atop crunchy, deep (filled) funk drums. 'Shades of Pale', meanwhile, is even deeper, warmer and more bass-heavy, with some of the laziest and jazziest electric guitar solos we've ever heard. Delicious!

Soul Flip Edits Volume 11
Cat: FLIP 011. Rel: 07 Jan 21
  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.
