Promised Land
Cat: AJX6 71S. Rel: 27 Jun 22
  1. Promised Land (4:35)
  2. Promised Land (instrumental) (4:34)
Review: For many of us, 'Promised Land' is a life-defining anthem. A house track that will never be bettered and one of the genre's most important cuts. It set a standard for proper lyrics and song structure that has never been better in the 40 odd years since, so Gloria Scott is brave to take it on. But she does a fine job. The whole thing becomes a little more jazzy and instrumental, with flashy strings and natty chords, but all powered by the great vocals. An instrumental is also included making this well worth picking up.

  8. Pedro Ruy-Blas - "Despertar" (3:56)
  9. Majoie Hajary - "Prologue" (4:00)
Review: Favorite Recordings founder Charles Maurice - initially better-known by his production alias Pascal Rioux - has long been regarded as a dusty-fingered crate digger, so his new compilation series, Fusion Global Sounds, is hotly anticipated. He says it will be an outlet for jazz-funk and fusion tracks of the 1970s and early '80s, mostly made by artists in different parts of the world whose fame never spread further than their own local scenes. You'll find numerous highlights on the series' debut, from the breezy, morning-fresh loveliness of Renato Anselmi's 'Hello Mr Acuvis' and the sun-soaked, afternoon shuffle of The 1960 Band's 'Keep That Same Old Feeling', to the dream pop-influenced sparkle of Otoshakers' 'Simpere Tu' and the righteous dancefloor hedonism of Sundance's 'Buster'.

Remixes (12")

  1. Ku La Foon (feat Lass - JKriv remix) (6:40)
  2. Ben Bene La (feat Lass - Patchworks remix) (5:14)
  3. Tu Mens Devant Moi (feat Ramatou Traore - Voilaaa remix) (4:08)
  4. Spies Are Watching Me (feat Sir Jean - Patchworks remix) (7:50)
Review: It's a while since we last heard from Bruno 'Patchworks' Hovart's Afro-disco focused Violaaa project, so this surprise set of remixes of back catalogue tracks is more than welcome. Fittingly, three of the versions come from Hovart himself under different aliases. There's a fine, tropical-tinged, sun-splashed Violaaa revision of 'Tu Mens Divant Moi' that doffs a cap to zouk music, and two deep house-tinged Patchworks versions of classic cuts. The mix of the outfit's underground hit 'Spies Are Watching Me' is a brilliant alternative take on a familiar favourite (it certainly breathes new life into the track), while the samba-house-in-Ghana revision of 'Ben Bene La' is brilliant. Throw in a quality J Kriv deep nu-disco version of 'Ku La Foon' and you have an excellent EP of tasteful, club-ready cuts.

Potion (12")

  1. Potion (5:59)
  2. Potion (instrumental mix) (5:55)
Review: Reissued on 12" wax after its long germination as a mega-rare promo white label, Rick Clarke's very first and massively sought-after single 'Potion', from 1981, gets light shed on it once more. Revered by boogie collectors in particular, this one is best known for its instrumental, which appears in all its glitzy glory on the B side. On the song, as you'll recall, Clarke urges us to "get, get down" and drink from his disco elixir; we gladly oblige.

  14. Stopping (version) (4:50)
Review: Risco Connection were the perfect reggae-disco crossover act, founded by Studio 1 sticksman Joe Isaacs after he moved to Canada in the late 60s. Searching for a sweet spot between the plush orchestration of disco and the upbeat shuffle of rocksteady, he embarked on a series of covers with a strong cast behind him, taking on the likes of Chic's 'Good Times', 'It's My House' and a version of 'Ain't No Stopping Us Now' which became a staple at David Mancuso's mythical Loft parties. This collection gathers together all the singles - vocals, dubs and all - and comes packaged with an interview with Isaacs and liner notes, restored and remastered and sounding better than ever.

Review: Krafty Kuts join FF45's repertoire with 2 deft new tunes, both of which work their proper remixy mashup magic. On Side A, they merge Nas' 'Made You Look' together with Placebo's 'Humpty Dump' for a busy and bustling chill hip hop bit, 'Humpty Nas', all cloudy and energetic... Side B meanwhile reinterprets Kenny Dope's 'Get On Down' with original production flair.

Review: Brian "Javonntte" Garrett has been cooking up his most stylish and superb deep house sounds for very nearly a quarter of a century now. He has done so on just about any decent label you care to mention and for this crucial 7" he lands on Ten Lovers Music. It is a mind-expanding affair as always with Brian and opens with the shuffling, samba-tinged grooves of 'Wind Of Seven Seas' complete with twinkling keys, pirouetting rhythms and funky bass. On the flip is 'Orion's Belt' which is a cosmic workout that never lets up.

If You Really Love Me (Record Store Day RSD 2022)
Cat: MXMRK 2046. Rel: 03 May 22
  1. If You Really Love Me (Me & The Gang remix - Mr K edit) (7:34)
  2. I Know You I Live You (Mr K edit) (9:14)
Review: There is a good chance that the K in Mr K stands for Knife, surely, because of how good this man is as crafting his own studio edits? Next up he tackles the frankly already very brilliant Stevie Wonder gem 'If You Really Love Me' but somehow he manages to improve it for modern club play. The horns are bigger, the drums are that bit more house-y and the whole arrangement is beefed up for a big impact. 'I Know You I Live You' on the flip is a disco dazzler with lucid horns and big soulful vocals for an all out good time.

  3. DJ Fleg - "Latin Escapades" (feat Lean Rock) (2:12)
Review: Mountain Records are a new funk label, pushing 45's cut with new funk tinged with a modern production sheen. For this one, label mainstay Double A, as usual, helms up the A-side with 'Are You Ready To Play The Game?' We find ourselves answering that we certainly are, as the tune immediately establishes unclear intent: its sample urges us to "play the game by the rules", but judging from all its sharp instrumental and breakbeat choppage, it certainly doesn't abide by its own rulebook! DJ Fleg, meanwhile, brings two classy tooly cuts to the B side, one of which features fellow producer Lean Rock.

They have spent years entrenched in the local music scene of Perugia, Italy, attending the Umbria Jazz Festival every summer and legendary Red Zone Club during winter, both of which shaped their sound of Aura Safari. Now, they showcase their good-time grooves and vibrant vibes on two brilliant new tracks for Terrasolare which lien up your life no end thanks to their dancing beats, warming bass and sun-worshiping synths and melodies.

Review: Matsuna Records sets its sights on South Africa for this tidy new 7". Both of the tunes on it are being reissued for the first time ever on 45rpm and they are first dropped on the Flame label in 1975. They were rediscovered and out out in 2013 by Berlin crew Black Pearl Records on an album that made it onto many collector's wantlist. 'Abahambi' is a title track from an album composed by Sipho Gumede and is a superlative bit of instrumental funk with still fresh chords and hip swinging beats. 'Umlazi' slows it down with a more laid back jazz funk sound for more seductive dances.

  6. Kirk's Tune (4:31)
Review: Chicagoan trumpeter and flugel hornist Malachi Thompson made some fine records during his lifetime, though none are better than his 1980 solo debut The Seventh Son. It's been an in-demand item amongst jazz collectors for some time, making this belated vinyl reissue a welcome development. The set is spiritual in tone, but musically draws just as much from soul-jazz and fusion as it does the more freewheeling end of spiritual jazz. As a result, the tracks are largely warming, melodious and alluring, with Thompson's dexterous and imaginative playing leaving a lasting impression. Our highlights include 'Street Dance' and the epic 'Denise', but to be honest the whole set is essential listening.

Review: DJ Nu-Mark brings the skills once again with his latest 7". The acclaimed DJ and producer mixes up funk, dance and hip hop here and with Lonely Boy offers a fresh new take on a well known Deee-Lite classic. The trombone form the original is well suited to ape the original whole; the vocals remain intact as broad brass sounds and big fat drums all add weight and power. Flip it over and you will find a new version of another stone cold great - Donell Jones' 'U Know What's Up'. Here it becomes a shiny synth pop cover with vocoder vocals.

Review: A Neapolitan disco funk production by Antonio Iglio and Antonio Moxedano. It was originally released in 1979 and is now highly sought after by collectors on the second hand market (albeit impossible to find) and also highly influential on the new wave of homegrown talents such as Nu Genea. Both tracks have been remastered for this reissue on Archeo; 'Tigre' is an absolutely sweltering disco inferno with a strong vocal section plus killer horns section to boot, while the more slung and groovy 'Gennarino 'O Sioux' makes for proper mood music in the late night.

Review: The Soul Monsters imprint has dipped into the back catalogue of premier Motown legends and chosen two killer covers of songs first made famous by other artists on the iconic soul label's roster. On the A-side you'll find their storming version of Stevie Wonder hit 'Uptight (Everything's All Right)', a take that's just as stomping and horn-heavy as the more familiar original, with the added bonus of smoother soul vocals from the ladies and first time on 7 inch vinyl. Turn to the flip for their interpretation of Barrett Strong hit 'Money (That's What I Want)', a more fuzzy and sax-laden affair of a song that was famously also covered by the Beatles on With The Beatles.

Review: Blue Note Records continue to top up their Classic Vinyl reissues series, this time homing in on Lou Donaldson's sixth album for the label 'Blues Walk' (he never swayed from Blue Note). The legendary jazz saxophonist and bandleader intended the LP to be his magnum opus at the time, and as history slowly ingested its influence, it became as such. Six rain-drizzled original pieces span two sides, with Donaldson joined by Herman Foster, Peck Morrison, Dave Bailey and Ray Barretto for an unusual jazz combo involving congas, and a unique mood that epitomised his own brand of cool jazz-blues.

This time they welcome two Berliners, Soul Brigada and Voodoocuts, to the fore for a hybridized chimera mixing the fabled verses of Ludacris with Aretha Franklin on the B, and an apparently completely original cut on the A (although it sounds very 'classic' - if it is sampled, then it's a rarity for sure!).

Review: By now, we've become accustomed to Japanese outfit Inosakira Rangers offering up reggae and vintage rocksteady style cover versions of pop and dance tracks of old. Their latest cover, of James Brown classic 'Sex Machine', is a little different. It's no less warm, dusty or on-point than its predecessors, but there's no reggae or rocksteady flex - just a warmer, more laidback take on the funk classic, complete with distinctive lead vocals from Keichi Sokabe. They're back in lazy, Sunday afternoon rocksteady mode on original B-side 'Nagoriyuki', a sweet and quietly soulful number that pushes the band's bassist and organist - or more specifically their fine instrumentation - high in the mix for added nostalgic pleasure.

He had help from three percussionists who help make this one a cult classic that has been hard to find over the years. Now London jazz DJ Paul Murphy's Jazz Room Records rights that wring with this fresh reissue.

Review: The inimitable Mr K lands once more on the Most Excellent Unltd label with more of his a-grade edits. He kicks off with a signature disc-funk sounds that could be from any ear in the last forty years. The bass licks really get you up on your toes as the dangling chords and leggy drums heighten the groove. A steamy female vocal then flips you out. On the backside is 'World Famous' which is a cut up groove with some great scratching, old school electro-boogie in the cords and a nice lush lead piano line that brings the joy.

Tibbs' sweet, twee and rushing voice sounds just as good on the 33rpm B-side, allowing DJs maximum versatility - of course, this isn't one they'll want to miss out on throwing into the mix.

Review: Were you aware of the burger highlife phenomenon that swept through Ghana in the 1980s? Taking the West African sound of highlife and infusing it with the synths and drum machines of disco and boogie, a vibrant fusion culture emerged with hit upon hit of infectious, funky-as-hell party gear undeniably rooted in African culture. This diligent compilation from Kalita looks to some of the most important artists from this wave of electrified highlifers, including Thomas Frempong and George Darko, and of course looking between the cracks for the more obscure gems that should get even the well-schooled excited to check this one out.

Moabit (12")
Cat: MULEMUSIQ 280. Rel: 21 Jun 22
  1. Moabit (feat Jimi Tenor) (8:12)
  2. Dub 5 (7:57)
Review: Two jazz house hip-swayers from Freestyle Man and Henrik Schwarz, strongmen of the style who have yet to collaborative until now. 'Moabit' comes to Mule Musiq, and features the living legend Jimi Tenor on sax on the eponymous A-side; a must for anyone seeking out an expressionist edge to their blue-noted party-starters. 'Dub 5', meanwhile, steps backwards into steam-stacked fogs and city backalleys, a dub techno take on neo-noir. An impressive exercise in style from the German pair.

  1. Ola! (3:47)
  2. Ti (2:47)
Review: Germany's Legere Recordings is the home of authentic, modern funk and jazz. For this tasty 7" outing, Welsh musician Carwyn Ellis and Rio 18 link with the BBC National Orchestra of Wales for an alarmingly exotic tune given its country of origin. This is samba drenched in sun, with all the authentic drums, soaring strings and percussive details you would expect next to some great lead flute work. That's the case on 'Ola' anyway, the more upbeat party starter, while 'Ti' is a sentimental and slow-motion ballad for weepy moments.

You Feel Alright?
Cat: M45 003. Rel: 15 Jun 22
  1. Double A - "You Feel Alright?" (3:47)
  2. The Gaff - "High Life" (45 edit) (3:42)
Review: Mountain Records are a new funk label, pushing 45's cut with new funk tinged with a modern production sheen. Two label mainstays decorate each side of this one: for the A, Double A asks 'You Feel Alright?' We certainly do, not least thanks to the artist's heavy locking down of sampled big boom drums, funky grooves and evil laughter. The Gaff meanwhile offers up a breakbeat banger to the altar, letting up on bass for a weird, flauting finish. 7"s collectors, watch out.

  7. Bosque (7:05)
  8. Cielo (7:54)
Review: Previously, the shadowy Jazz 'N' Palms crew has stuck to re-edits, offering up on-point, scalpel style reworks of thoroughly obscure jazz, tropical and Balearic gems. With Ses Rodes, they've ditched the re-edits, instead offering up an album of original tracks, recorded in Ibiza with the help of a quartet of musicians. The results are pleasingly leisurely and soft focus, with winding analogue synth solos, languid saxophone lines, horizontal jazz guitar solos and warming Rhodes motifs - and the odd Pat Metheny style improvised vocal - rising above mostly laidback grooves. Along the way, you can expect forays into jazz-funk, spiritual jazz, art-rock, exotica, library music, soundtrack grooves and sun-splashed Balearic beats.

  2. Plastic Love (4:53)
Review: Japanese vocalist Mariya Takeuchi originally recorded this one for her 1984 album Variety. It was only moderately successful at first with 10, 000 copies sold but in 2017 that changed when an eight minute remix was uploaded to YouTube and went on to pick up over 63 million views. It became one of the hits of the next few years and now makes it onto this 12" via Warner Japan. The joyousness and nostalgic 80s disco sounds all warm your heart and the original version is that bit more sensuous and sentimental.

Review: Roger Webb was an accomplished composer and songwriter in the 60s and 70s who wrote for the likes of Shirley Bassey, Johnny Mathis, and Bette Davis, but he also turned his hand to some outstanding library works such as this bright and breezy LP from 1971. With vocals from Barbara Moore (also noted for working with Jimi Hendrix, Elton John, Dusty Springfield and Tom Jones), Vocal Patterns is a mixed bag that veers from kitsch 60s pop to melancholic reflections and more besides. If you want a portal back to a different era, this record will sweep you off your feet and land you right back there.

It Should Have Been Me

  2. Brand New Lover (5:04)
Review: Mr K (Danny Krivit) is back once again with another vital selection of his edits kicking off with the title track 'It Should Have Been Me' a lazy and heart wrenching soul jam with deep cut bass, guttural female vocals that are as raw as you can imagine and some lush strings. It's a great vision of a stone cold classic that will never fail in any setting to get tears going. On the flipside, 'Brand New Lover' picks up the pace with a silky disco-funk-soul groove to carry you into a lovely headspace.

Review: Touching Bass is a vital force within London's jazz-adjacent scene, prioritising and incubating new Black talent and giving a voice to artists who might not have been heard otherwise. Now we're being given an authoritative view into the label's world with this expansive compilation, Soon Come. It's a double-disc affair with some serious flair from the get-go thanks to the incredible beats of 10.4 ROG behind Brother Portrait's eloquent flow on 'The Lighthouse'. From Clever Austin to KeiyaA, AshTreJenkins to Molinaro, the heat is undeniable whether it's stone cold jazz, red-eyed neo soul or some other cosmic contemporary fusion your ears are getting treated to.

Review: Is there any more revered digger than Antal, the rush Hour label boss? he has made that label and shop famous around the world for its great and eclectic taste. He has also reinvigorated the catalogues of numerous artists thanks to playing their tunes in his expansive sets so whenever he serves up a comp it's pretty much a buy on sight. Beyond Spec & Time Volume 2 jin the Japanese label of the same names one such example - it's full of broken beat and jazzy treasure that is invigorates the soul and more than makes you want to dance.

Light Touches 06
  1. Cheeky (4:23)
  2. Weeping Funk (4:22)
Review: Light Touches Records does what it says on the tin - it 'retouches' and sheds 'light' on old 'records', with a focus on rare groove and Latin music. They're unorthodox, though, in that they don't credit the original artists behind these 'classics', throwing the question as to whether these are legitimate originals - or just clever emulations - up in the air. That shouldn't deter you, though, because 'Cheeky' and 'Weeping Funk' are still killer slices of hypnotic funk: "cheeky chaka" goes the refrain on the samba-esque A, while track two is instrumental, resting squarely between the mournful and the upbeat.
