MANOSJMT:  Mulatu (Manolatu)With new freebie Mulatu (Manolatu), Greek producer ManosJMT chops and loops where Nas and Damien Marley once also dared to sample, amongst the back catalogue of Mulatu ‘the father of Ethio-jazz’ Astatke.

NICK FABER: What Happened Yesterday (Vinyl 12″)

NICK FABER:  What Happened Yesterday (Vinyl 12Rating: ★★★★★ It’s fair to say Nick Faber has been around the musical block a few times. The veteran big beater’s Let Me Hear You Clap Your Hands came out on Marble Bar in ’99, for example; he was king of the beats on John Turrell’s solo album Kingmaker and has previously remixed minor artists like Kylie and Sugababes. His next trick however, is the release of a new 12″ solo single

SOOPASOUL: If It Ain’t Funky Back It Up (Vinyl 7″)

SOOPASOUL: If It Ain't Funky Back It Up (Vinyl 7‘If it ain’t funky back it up,’ runs the sureshot male vocal hook of Soopasoul’s new 45 – er – If It Ain’t Funky Back It Up which channels the JBs in such a reliable manner that it’s in precisely no danger whatsoever of having to engage reverse gear. Naturally that means you can expect an upbeat, uptempo rhythm drenched in horns and funky guitar chops. Still, if you’re not backing up, there’s

BAZZA RANKS feat. PRISONERS OF AUDIO: Where Would We Be?

BAZZA RANKS feat. PRISONERS OF AUDIO:  Where Would We Be?Where would we be, without Bazza Ranks? You might well ask.
