Review: Galaxy Sound Co hit hard with two more edits. Both taking from triple figure sources; on the A we go back to 1968 for a chunky big funk fix on Jake Wade & The Soul Searcher's only known single "Searching For Soul" (which was famously sampled by Beyonce on "Suga Mama"). Bangini drums, horns, and a sweet bass line, the guys knew how to lay it down. Flip to the B we're blessed with the sweltering garage rock melter "Show-stopper". Powerful and sleazy; this packs a punch now more than ever, and just goes to show how much music was under the radar at that time.
Review: Multi-track re-edits, where producers utilize the instrumental and vocal parts found on studio master tapes, are all the rage right now. While the Rephlex crew and Joey Negro are the most famous exponents of the art, Galaxy Sound Co regular Kadena has previously proved to be rather adept at it, too. Here the little-known producer channels the spirit of original disco remixer Walter Gibbons, first to provide a lolloping, groove-based revision of Instant Funk's intergalactic Salsoul classic "I Got My Mind Made Up" (side A), and then to deliver a similarly minded take on First Choice's "Let No Man Put Asunder". Like its A-side companion, it's warmer, looser and predominantly instrumental, with judicious use of key vocal passages.
Review: BlackCash & Theo dust off two pairs of gloves... First their crate digging gloves to unearth Thrust, the one-off album Ohio duo McNeal & Niles recorded in 1979, then they dust off their editing gloves for two immaculate extensions. If you enjoy anything on Claremont (especially Paqua) then you'll be all over these cosmic instrumentals - notably the soft harmonies on "Summer Time" and the endless, star-gazing guitar twangs of "Punk Funk. You may recognise a few samples here, too... Madlib and Motor City Drum Ensemble are two of many who've enjoyed the fine hooks of Mc Neal & Niles.

Review: Galaxy Sound return to the classics with this prime slice of 1980 disco funk from NYC troupe Skyy. The lead track on their second Salsoul album Skyyport, everything about "Here's To You" glistens and struts; the slinky keys, the lolloping, walloping walking basslines and the sweet-shuffled double-clapping drum arrangement. Both parts re-purposed, remastered and rebuilt by Kadena, all the original elements are brought to life without losing any of their original funk elements.
