Keep Ya Head Up
Keep Ya Head Up (7" limited to 300 copies)
Cat: IMP 005. Rel: 29 Jan 21
  1. 2 Pac - "Keep Ya Head Up" (4:28)
  2. King Tee - "Played Like A Piano" (4:21)
Review: West Coast Classics brings the heat on this latest super 7" with one fo the biggest name sin the game taking care of the a-side. 2 Pac's 1993 gem 'Keep Ya Head Up' features R&B singer Dave Hollister. The tune was dedicated to his godson Elijah and Latasha Harlins and also points out the abuse black women face in society. It's a cut that brims with warmth and a beat sampled from Zapp's 'Be Alright.' Flip it over for King Tee's slow motion, deep cut funk jewel 'Played Like A Piano' which is another vital tune.

  3. Tastes Like Freedom (Tornado Wallace Red Face mix) (8:21)
  4. Tastes Like Freedom (Yu Su Midnight Blossom remix) (4:46)
Review: This is a genuinely excellent remix package, with a quartet of hugely talented artists taking it in turns to provide interesting, mostly floor-friendly revisions of 30/70's warming, jazz-funk-meets-soul jam 'Tastes Like Freedom'. Chaos in the CBD steps up first, re-imagining the track as a jazzy slab of sun-kissed electro bliss, before Carista smothers the band's original drums in moody, foreboding chords, psychedelic acid lines and oodles of delay and reverb. Tornado Wallace channels the spirit of Laurent Garnier's 'Man With The Red Face' - and the St Germain material that the French DJ championed on his F Communications label - on a superb, slow-building deep house anthem in the making, while Yu Su's EP-ending 'Midnight Blossom' remix is a warming, intoxicating downtempo delight.

Lean On You
Cat: JAL 352V. Rel: 22 Apr 21
  1. Lean On You (feat Dynamite MC) (2:54)
  2. Working On Me (3:21)
Review: Times may change and life may evolve, but the Allergies will always be unashamed party-starters whose records are both pleasingly heavy and instantly accessible. By now, you shouldn't need further proof og their skills in this department, but if you do, the Bristol combo's latest "45" is a lesson is dancefloor-igniting goodness. 'Lean on You' is a live and funk-fuelled as you'd expect, with distinctive flash-fried funk-rock guitar riffs, bustling, interestingly slung breakbeats and a fine lead vocal from Dynamite MC. Over on the flip, 'Working on Me' is a more bluesy, cut-and-paste funk breaks number that's guaranteed to get feet moving out on the dancefloor.

  1. Move On Baby (3:12)
  2. Are You Ready (feat Andy Cooper & Marietta Smith) (3:15)
Review: Jalapeno Records is one of UK's funkiest dance labels and is has been for ages. Bristol beatmakers The Allergies are just as funky and always serve up a massive dose of sunshine on their Latin flecked sounds. The opener here is 'Move On Baby' and is one of the best tunes the pair have ever laid down. Its packed with great samples, a high speed 60s spy theme rhythm and vintage rhythm 'n' blues vocals over energetic drum breaks. It is a textbook offering form this duo with all the big hooks and horns you need to carry you to the next level. B-side banger 'Are You Ready' is a stomping soul sessions with huge vocal work from Miss Marietta Smith.

Review: The JalapeNo label never fails to serve up the sort of hot and spicy funk sounds that electrify dance floors. It is UK beatmakers The Allergies who take care of this one with fire-in-the-hole future classics that pack powerful punches with their famous signature sound. First up is the vintage funk of 'Love Somebody' with its big and beefy breaks and vintage sounds. On the flipside is 'Promised Land' which is the title track from the forthcoming album. It's a big and bulky breakbeat smasher that will get the feet tapping and the fists pumping.

Main Event

  1. Main Event (3:37)
  2. Buzzsaw (3:57)
Review: What a trip it's been for The Allergies; rolling from one killer album to the next, funk is flying from their HQ at a rate of knots. Here are two fine examples from their last LP Push On, both featuring their long-time friend and MC from Andy Cooper. Best known for his witty wordplay and character on Ugly Duckling records, here Andy gets to show off both sides to his expansive flow; "Main Event" is a chubby disco groove laced with mountains of funk, creating space for Andy's laidback-but-hypey charm. In perfect contrast "Buzzsaw" is a much sweatier funk jam allowing Cooper to get rapid and tongue-twisty in a way that only he knows how. Keep on pushing...

Review: The Arabian Prince & The Sheiks is actually Kim Naze. He debuted on this label back in July with a reissue of an EP that dates back originally to 1985 on Rapsur Records. Now he is back with more of his rugged, proudly analogue electro goodness in the form of this scintillant and throwback single 'Situation Hot.' It first came in 1986 so bares all the loveable production hallmarks you would expect from that era - icy cowbells, jacked-up drums, serene chords and a beat to make you move your body in funky fashion. The original comes with an edit and instrumental.

Review: According to Discogs, this is the first ever release from Arthur Freestyle, but it could just as well be the sound of some overlooked MPB star from back in the day. He delivers his gentle rhythms over a lazy, reggae tinged beat tinged with sunshine and Latin flair, and overload with simple but effective keys and a female accompaniment. It's hard not to fall for this one. Flip it over for 'Outro Lugar,' a Brazilian take on slow motion hip hip crossed with deep loves rock that is as good as it sounds on paper.

Review: Japanese producers Aru-2 and Kzyboost are mainstays of the beak making scene. The Tokyo pair have a full length album coming up in August but now offer up a first taster of what to expect from it. This special 45rpm features two of the tunes that will be on the album ad a-side jam 'Shooby Dooby' is a futuristic wedge of bubbling analogue funk, Synth bass powers it along and then some textbook Aru-2 talk box vocals add extra spice. On the flip is B-side 'Boost Step,' which heads down a more laidback and downtempo vibe with funk vibes and synth solos leading the way.

  1. Top Billin (2:53)
  2. Top Billin (instrumental) (3:00)
Review: Hip-hop diggers will happily tell you that "Top Billin" was one of the tightest, heaviest and most stripped-back rap jams to emerge from New York in the mid 1980s. Here the 1987 hip-hop club classic is given the reissue treatment by fresh label Know How, marking the cut's first appearance on "45" for 32 years. The A-side vocal version - the most famous of the two takes - is a great example of the dancefloor power of stripped-back hip-hop, with the completed cut being little more than chunky drum machine beats and on-point raps rich in call-and-response sections and crowd-pleasing slogans. The harder to find flipside instrumental lays this bare, peppering the duo's beat with select snippets of reverb-laden chants.

  1. Raise It Up (2:36)
  2. Space (2:29)
Review: Big Crown is one of our favourite labels here at HQ. The funk and soul they serve up is perfectly aged yet never overly nostalgic and this new one is another case it point. It's the latest from the Bacao Rhythm & Steel Band and features two singles take from their latest and greatest album Expansions which landed back in June. As always they bring their own unique steel drum sounds and tropical Caribbean vibes to funk music. 'Raise It Up' is a deep cut joint with big horns and rippling steel drums puddles while 'Space' is a more lumpy groove with the drums more front and centre.

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. Straight Jacket (4:10)

Review: When it comes to classic hip-hop cuts, the Old Chillin' series of seven-inch singles has you covered. The mysterious crew behind the series has previously offered up gems by Big Daddy Kane, Nas and Cyprus Hill. Here they turn their attention to the bulging back catalogue of New York twosome the Beatnuts. Both tracks are taken from the pair's fine 1994 debut album. A-side "Straight Jacket" is a bona fide NYC hip-hop club classic, with the duo adding tight raps to a drowsy but dancefloor-friendly "Golden era" beat. Flipside "Get Funky" is a little more densely layered and laidback in tone, though it's still lively enough to suggest that it's worthy of regular club spins again.

Review: Bootleg remix specialist Big Mac is back! Having previously reworked cuts by Nas, Jay-J and Ol' Dirty bastard, amongst others, he's now turned his attention to two classic cuts from Masta Ace's early '90s rap crew, Masta Ace Incorporated. On side A, he subtly breathes new life into breezy boom-bap classic 'The INC Ride', tightening things up while allowing the original beats, samples and crew vocals a chance to breathe. He takes a similar approach on his flipside re-edit of 'Saturday Night Live', once again focusing on the original's Bobbi Humphrey and Melvin Bliss-sampling groove. Tasteful edits of 1990s hip-hop classics: what's not to like?

Review: When it comes to mash-ups and unofficial reworks, sometimes the simplest ideas are the ones that make for the most effective versions. That's certainly the case here, as Soul Mates main man Amerigo Gazaway crafts a fresh slab of funk/hip-hop fusion out of three key elements: a legendary Biggie Smalls acapella, sections lifted from James Brown classic "Papa's Got a Brand New Bag" and his own head-nodding hip-hop beats. There's not much more to it than that, but the resultant cut, "Big Poppa's Got a Brand New Bag", sounds like a guaranteed dancefloor winner. The A-side version is the full vocal take, while the flipside is a Biggie-free instrumental mix.

Dres is the MC bringing the character and plenty of carefully dug out samples make this one standout above many of its peers. An original copy of this will set you back a fancy few quid so when you also add in the break fuelled remix on the flip you have an essential little pick up.

Review: The next instalment of the official classic hip-hop reissue series from Mr Bongo focusses on the hard-to-find 45 of Black Sheep's 'The Choice Is Yours'. This marks the first time this has ever been on this format, and the diets time it has ever really been released in the UK. The original, here on the b-side, is one of the band's most celebrated releases and was made around key parts of Johnny Hammond's oft-sampled 'Big Sur Suite' from 1974. It's a sweet soundtrack to many a party from days gone by and still stands up there as a stone cold classic anthem.

Review: Having previously re-issued the hard-to-find 45 of Black Sheep's 1991 anthem 'Strobelite Honey', Mr Bongo has now decided to issue the first ever seven-inch pressing of one of the duo's earlier singles, 'Flavor of the Month'. It's a breezy, boom-bap affair in which the duo exchange verses over a beat crafted from choice samples of records by Joe Farrell, Bubble Gum Machine and, most famously, Herb Alpert and his Tijuana Brass. It comes backed with original flipside 'Butt in the Meantime', a slacker, jazzier and more laid-back affair notable for a superb piano hook, hazy bass and a tight electric piano riff.

Strobelite Honey (reissue)
Cat: MRB 7169. Rel: 07 Aug 20
  1. Strobelite Honey (Maybe We Did mix) (3:50)
  2. Strobelite Honey (3:08)
Review: There's been plenty of great "golden era" hip-hop reissued on wax lately, mostly via tidy and on-point seven-inch singles. Here's another, as Mr Bongo offers up a replica edition of the increasingly scarce "45" of Black Sheep's 1991 scene anthem "Strobelite Honey" - a playful and fun-packed affair that still gets feet moving 29 years after it first hit clubs. On the A-side you'll find the superior "Maybe We Did Remix", in which Dres's entertaining lyrics about courting a woman at a club ride crunchy drums, scratches, squally high pitched horn sounds and a wealth of killer samples. Turn to the flip for the far funkier original version, which lifts warm, squelchy and groovy elements from early '80s disco cuts by Change and Luther Vandross.

Fuck The Fans
  1. Fuck The Fans (5:03)
  2. Fuck The Fans (instrumental) (4:33)
Review: Northentic Records welcome back cult UK rapper Blade for a link up with producer Seek The Northerner that delivers messages of gratitude in arresting fashion . The signature boom bap production of Seek underpins the whole a-side, while he also adds his own verse which pays tribute to his collaborative partner here. World Champion turntablist DJ Woody layers in plenty of scratches to add some old school cool and engineering from No Sleep Nigel ensures it all sounds super fresh. It you want it even more direct and raw, the flip side instrumental has you covered.

Review: RECOMMENDED
"Hahahahahahaha, everybody, check it out. It's that time of year, get ready to funk it up. Fly girls, fly guys, punk rockers, natty dreads... It ain't the wack, for a definite fact - it's Christmas, Jack." Cue Debbie Harry quizzing Fab 5 Freddy on whether he's actually St. Nicholas because she's never seen Santa Claus wearing sunglasses. Suffice to say, fun seasonal breaks this is, serious retro hip hop it ain't. Originally recorded in 1981, 'Yuletide Throwdown' was only released on a special Flexi-disc given away with now-defunct UK music magazine Flexipop the same year. Skip forward four decades and the tracks was 'rediscovered' by Blondie in the archives, and has now been selected for a forthcoming boxset slated to land next year. In the meantime, the single version - along with Cut Chemist remix - is arriving in good time for the forthcoming festivities. Think Christmas-related rhymes set to the classic track 'Rapture' and you're pretty much there.
