D/TROIT: Soul Sound System (7″ Vinyl)(2017) + Video premiere

D/TROIT:  Soul Sound System (7Craig Charles Funk & Soul Show regulars will probably already know that Denmark has entered the deep-soul fray in the shape of D/Troit so ears will prick up at the news that the band are shortly to release new single Soul Sound System on 7″ wax. It’s a funky, clattery soul-shakedown, heavy on the horns, mixed by none other than Daptone’s Gabe Roth (blimey!) and celebrates funk-soul

MUNGO'S HI-FI feat. EVA LAZARUS:  'Amsterdam' videoRating: ★★★★★ Like the similarly angel-voiced Hollie Cook, you can always rely on Eva Lazarus to hook up with decent reggae and/or bashment producers and grace a decent beat.

EL MICHELS AFFAIR: Shadow Boxin’ b/w Iron Maiden (Vinyl 7″)(2017)

EL MICHELS AFFAIR:  Shadow Boxin' b/w Iron Maiden (Vinyl 7Another release linked to something from April today and, in this case, we find El Michels Affair’ dropping yet more 45 action off superb Return To The The 37th Chamber album from back in the spring. Although they’ve avoided committing the biggest track off the LP to single format again (so we still live in hope of an All I Need 45), it’s hard to imagine there’ll be any complaints about finding the lilting psych-funk

GROOVE MIND: The Magician/ My Funky Worm – Remixes (2017)

GROOVE MIND:  The Magician/ My Funky Worm - RemixesThe MustBeat label come heavy and correct with the remixes shortly as they drop a big re-version package of Groove Mind’s The Magician/ My Funky Worm digi-single from back in April. D-Funk is the only artist to tackle The Magician and while most of the original elements of this gnarly wobble breaks cut are retained the whole thing is flipped for a deeper sound.
