MAKO & MR BRISTOW: Stank Soul Edits Vol. 5Happily, there’s not been such a long gap between Mako & Mr Bristow releases this time as they deliver Stank Soul Edits Vol. 5 a mere six months after the sold-out and subsequently re-pressed Stank Soul Edits Vol 4.  For the new 45, the pair present you with A-side, Funky Diggin,’ which re-imagines a little known soul-rocker from a certain bunch of stoned soul picnickers as a mightily funky dancefloor-friendly diggers’ anthem.  Meanwhile
