CALIBRO 35: Momentum

CALIBRO 35: MomentumIf Calibro 35’s previous LP, 2018’s Decade, marked something of a watershed in what was the tenth year of their career, so, apparently does new one Momentum.  The band put it like this, “If Decade was the sum of everything…in the previous ten years, Momentum is the prequel of what you will hear in the next ten.” And they do have something of a point. Not only does the new album feature

BOCA 45: Powerful (feat. HANNAH WILLIAMS)/ Sparky Evans (2020 Donuts # 1)(Vinyl 7″)

BOCA 45: Powerful (feat. HANNAH WILLIAMS)/ Sparky (Vinyl 7Who’s this hard-charging straight into February with his Powerful/ Sparky Evans 45 – the first in a strictly limited series called 2020 Donuts? It’s Boca 45 of course, championing the vinyl 7″ as ever with one track that sounds like it was named after a soul sister and one that features one. The latter, Powerful, is the A-side and finds the Jay-Z-sampled Hannah Williams give it large about corrupt leaders over a conga-tastic beat that veers

STEPPIN’ TONES: The Feeling Is Mutant

STEPPIN' TONES:  The Feeling Is MutantThe last, but by no means least, of a flurry of releases (mainly albums – hence the long lead before posting) that arrived on the monkey’s virtual doormat over the seasonal period was Steppin’ Tones’ long player, The Feeling Is Mutant. A man who definitely doesn’t have the profile he should do, Mr Tones is a dope mash-up king and maker of good-time big beat breaks in the old

PULPFUSION: From A Kid To A Man

PULPFUSION: From A Kid To A ManYet another project that dropped in the festive season and was thus in danger of getting lost amid all the nonsense that such a season entails is the From A Kid To A Man LP from a man who has been off the monkey radar for a long minute – Pulpfusion. Nevertheless, Terence Thoeny (for it is he) dropped this instrumental opus of fourteen tracks (plus three bonus cuts if you cop it on his

TIMEWARP INC: Theory Of Revolution LP

TIMEWARP INC: Theory Of Revolution LPTheory Of Revolution?  Could use one of those in the UK since we’ve forgotten how to identify the corrupt, let alone do something about them. Maybe we should all boogie while everything burns down and if so, what better soundtrack than Timewarp Inc.’s fourth studio long-player? And what a mammoth affair Theory Of Revolution is, tipping the scales at a whopping nineteen tracks
