SAM REDMORE: Universal Vibrations LP

SAM REDMORE:  Universal Vibrations LPYou’ve been reading about the singles here on MB since last September (five of them no less!) covering a range of genres and sub-genres but this month it’s Sam Redmore’s debut long player, Universal Vibrations which has finally dropped. It’s an eleven-track set with a name that implicitly makes the bold claim of being able to rock the

FLEVANS: It Takes The Whole Day / In Shadows

FLEVANS: It Takes The Whole Day / In ShadowsHere’s the new single from Flevans then, It Takes The Whole Day. Wait, what!? It’s a twenty-four hour long track?! He’s not messing around is he? No, stupid, that’s the title – It Takes The Whole Day. Wait, what!? The title takes the whole day? etc. etc. Hours of fun. Though actually, the new Flevans single actually only provides three minutes, four seconds of orchestra-drenched pop-

LROY vs SUCKASIDE: Toxic Funk Vol. 8 (Vinyl 7″)

LROY vs SUCKASIDE:  Toxic Funk Vol. 8 (Vinyl 7Looks like it’s LROY and Suckaside who get to deliver the latest volume in BBP’s 45s series Toxic Funk, with Volume 8. This consists of Second Warning and Let The Music Play a.k.a. breakbeat edits of a pair of late sixties soul cuts a la, Paul Sitter’s Nothing But A Heartache from earlier in the year. Oohh you’d like to hear some of that wouldn’t you? Sadly, embeddable audio is signally

BREAKBEAT PARADISE: Paradise Lounge

BREAKBEAT PARADISE:  Paradise LoungeAhhh the dog days of summer, lassitude, torpor – whatever you want to call it, there’s no way you’ve got the energy to get down! The temperature’s been off the chart for the last three months! What you need is to chill in the Paradise Lounge from Breakbeat Paradise. Admittedly, Boydex X Crash Party’s Rescue Me is perhaps a bit more energetic than you might’ve been expecting

DJ DSK: DNA Edits Vol. 7 (Vinyl 7″)

DJ DNA:  Edits Vol. 7Who’s this with DNA Edits Vol. 7 then? Why, it’s DJ DSK of course – what with editing being in his, er, DNA after all. But what delights does he have for us this August? Well, first up is Creep. Nope, not a re-version of the Radiohead depress-fest but rather one of the track of the same name by 90s R&B-ers TLC. Perhaps uncharacteristically, for a remix, this one doesn’t attempt to ‘go larger’ than

THE ALLERGIES: Vamonos feat. ANDY COOPER & MARIETTA SMITH (Vinyl 7″)

THE ALLERGIES: Vamonos feat. ANDY COOPER & MARIETTA SMITHThe dream-team is back then, as The Allergies team-up with Andy Cooper and Marietta Smith to launch Vamonos, their first drop in quite some time – since November if the monkey remembers correctly. Vamonos? Oh what – Spanish for ‘Let’s go’? Precisely. And given the time of year, it would make sense if this was a ‘going on holiday’ song. It is! Well, what are the chances? Naturally with a

LEHTO: Lovers

LEHTO: LoversIt’s been a while since the monkey heard of anything from the camp of Mr David Hanke a.k.a. Renegades Of Jazz a.k.a. Keno but here he is in yet another incarnation as Lehto with an original slice of soulful breakbeat music, Lovers. It begins in a glorious blissed-out state of grace, then gets all fired up when the drums kick in, has its moody bits, then its loud bits again and then finally

LIPPHEAD: The Squirrel From Ipanema

Debut LP, In The Nude, is out mid-June on the Young Heavy Souls label but before that comes debut single The Squirrel From Ipanema. A mid-tempo hip-hop instrumental, it features crunchy drums, and richly layered instrumentation with a non-lyric

GRAMOPHONE SOUL feat. GEOFF LAI: For Your Soul

GRAMOPHONE SOUL feat. GEOFF LAI: For Your SoulNext on Cuttin’ It Fine is uptempo shimmy For Your Soul from Gramophone Soul featuring the vocals of Geoff Lai of Baker Brothers. And while the production’s about as new school as it can get, the horns, hand-clap and piano-drenched rhythm owes everything to sixties RnB. It’s not a million miles from what Daytoner has been putting out with his live band for example and – speak of the
