  1. Suonho - "It's Cool"
  2. Voodoocuts - "Git Fonky"
Review: "It's Cool"... Possibly the finest pairings of words in the English language, they can be used to describe anything from the weather to ones behaviour on a Saturday night. Here we find it playing the title and describing Suonho's classic JB-style funk groove. With tight horns and relaxed, big-swing breakbeats, it's a sure fire butt wiggler. Elsewhere Voodoocuts soaks himself in a Champs flavoured "Tequila" spirit. With a tightly plucked guitar riff and major hand-clap action if this doesn't cause a merry Mexican stand off on the dancefloor you're playing in the wrong venue.

Review: The tireless Strut Records operation presents this excellent retrospective of Celluloid Records! This 80s NYC imprint is described by Strut as the "label whose output so closely mirrors the full spectrum of what we love" so the 26 track Change The Beat: The Celluloid Records Story 1980 - 1987 can be viewed as something of a personal coup. Typically for a Strut release, Change The Beat manages to superbly represent a label whose output includes a rather intimidating 100 plus albums that veered between no wave, nascent hip-hop, afro infused experimental disco and more, and neatly encapsulates New York's vivid music scene in this period. Bill Laswell was central to the Celluloid story and features prominently here in his Massacre and Material incarnations as well as other key productions. Celluloid's involvement with early forms of New York hip-hop is also a key narrative of this compilation yet there's room for so much more in the tracklisting. Rare photos from the Celluloid archives and extensive interviews with label boss Jean Karakos, Bill Laswell, Afrika Bambaataa, Time Zone's Rusty Egan, John Lydon make this a definitive retrospective!

  1. I Don't Want To Leave (feat Tall Black Guy - Sure Know How To Love Me re-edit)
  2. Untrue (feat Dandy Teru - True re-edit)
Review: It's strictly San Fran shizzle right here as Ubiquity go to town on one of the most respected faces on their sister imprint Luv N Haight. Clear vinyl and hand-stamped, both sides are smoother than a Barry White impressionist convention. Giles Peterson's Detroitian pal Tall Black Guy extends "Don't Want To Leave You" into a lavish, silky slo-mo nodder, capturing the mournful warmth of the original and reconceptualising for the cosmic youth. Meanwhile on the B we find Ubiquity boss Dandy Teru supping more of a trippy broken beat brew. Quintessential edits.

Review: Originally released back in 2001, there's a reason why Strut have reissued Nigeria 70: The Definitive Story Of 1970's Funky Lagos so many times; it's superb and totally lives up to the title! if you've not yet indulged in the compilation, this 2012 triple vinyl pressing is the even more definitive edition, slipping in the 2CD version along with the Nigeria 70 audio documentary that Strut originally included in the 2001 CD issue but has been absent since. With the vinyl now pressed on heavyweight 180g wax, this makes for the perfect introduction into the vivid story of 1970s West African funk. Well done Strut!

  1. James Brown's Boo Ga Loo (1)
  2. James Brown's Boo Ga Loo (2)
Review: What a repress. James & The Incredible Showmen may have made an impression on the US funk floors as a live act but as recording artists they only pressed one record. This one. A fitting homage to the big man himself, it's a bright, tight jam with all the drum rolls, bass walks, heaving horns and wukka-wukka strums. Once a digger's delight, it can now relive a little more of the glory it deserves.

  1. The Shakedown (Say Yeah)
  2. Dragging Me Down
Review: After releases on a dozen labels, one of Britain's finest funk groups Speedometer unleash their new single "The Shakedown(Say Yeah)" on Freestyle. Their current vocalist is none other than the legendary Martha High, a long time vocalist with James Brown until 1995 when she left to tour globally with James's sax player Maceo Parker. Does it hit all the right spots? Does it tick all the boxes? Hell yeah! Martha is firing on all four cylinders, ably assisted by UK soul man Myles Sanko whilst a killer guitar licked, punchy brass groove carries things on at a furious pace. "Dragging Me Down" on the flip sports a crystal clear performance from Martha as the band cook the bubbling organ tempo on gas mark 10; oven gloves at the ready people.

  1. Whatcha Trying To Do (To Me)?
  2. Tell Me, Tell Me!
Review: Russian funk alert! Following in the footsteps of fellow country funkers STiX and The Soul Surfers, DJ Anatoly Ice and veteran songstress Dariya deliver two impeccable jams that sizzle with a fuzzy air of 60s nostalgia. Dariya's vocal delivery is crisp, clear and decidedly sexy as she dips into her mother tongue for very brief respites. With punctuated pianos, big swinging drums and a horn ensemble that's tighter than an austerity budget, this is an exemplary lesson in funk.

  4. We Gonna Bring The Funk To You (Daytoner remix)
  5. I Know Your Love Is True (Lack Of Afro remix)
  6. Big Livin' (Przanik remix)
Review: The relationship between German funkateer Mr Confuse and Leger has been consistently on-point, and this is no exception. A remix EP, this boasts an array of creative versions from his last album Do You Realize. Opening with a supreme instrumental of "Man Made" (think RSL meet Hot 8 Brass Band) we're then knocked in the socks by Dublex Inc's take on the same song which sounds strangely like "Brown Paper Bag" on slo-mo. Elsewhere we find belting power soul on Lack Of Afro's remix of "I Know Your Love Is True", fiery Latino strums on Daytoner's remix "We Gonna Bring The Funk To You" and a woozy, dub-wise take on "Big Livin'" by Przanik.
