DAYTONER: Remote Connections

DAYTONER: Remote ConnectionsRating: ★★★★★ Given the adverse global social conditions (at least physically) while Daytoner were attempting to write their second studio LP it’s perhaps not surprising that the band named the new one Remote Connections. Nor, indeed – given that they’re a Cornish band – that they took the opportunity to celebrate Cornwall’s early role in global communications with an two-tone image

DAYTONER: Time (Vinyl 7″)

DAYTONER: Time (Vinyl 7Cornish outfit Daytoner return at the end of the month with a new 45 single Time b/w Keep It Moving. As you might be able to intuit from the track titles, the pandemic’s deleterious effect on live music has had a galvanising effect on the band who were keen to – er – keep things moving, having developed a finer appreciation of, well, time during successive lockdowns. Indeed

DAYTONER: Life’s A Bitch b/w (It Ain’t) All Good (Vinyl 7″)

Friday's Funky 45 Vol. 12Imagine if Nas’s AZ-featuring Illmatic track, Life’s A Bitch, had a beat done in the style of J-Swift’s work on debut Pharcyde album Bizarre Ride II…? Daytoner and assorted bandmates certainly have done for the A-side of Friday’s Funky 45 Vol. 12 in their fifth crack of the FF45 whip alongside such hallowed company as Featurecast, Smoove, Freqnik & WDRE, Flipout and Red Astaire. Gone is the stoner head-nod of the original replaced by

DAYTONER: David’s Doctor b/w Ooh Lalo (Vinyl 7″)

DAYTONER: David's Doctor b/w Ooh Lalo (Vinyl 7Check Daytoner thinking he could slip the new ‘Friday’s Funky 45’ out under the radar just when everyone was sat around lethargic from rich food, lack of sunlight and a surfeit of alcohol. David’s Doctor employs the same David Axelrod sample used on The Next Episode by a certain production medic you may have forgotten about and teams it neatly with the world’s most famous drum

DAYTONER: Shedits 4 – The Latin Quarter

DAYTONER: Shedits 4 - The Latin QuarterRating: ★★★★★ The last couple of years have been busy for Daytoner what with all the live appearances with the band and the album and the 45s – so much so that we haven’t seen a new one of his always quality Shedits EPs for two years. Of course, we have been blessed with select tracks off volumes 1-3 appearing on vinyl seven inch but now it’s time for four new cuts and one previously

DAYTONER: My Sweet Baby/ Shout Love (Vinyl 7″)

DAYTONER: My Sweet Baby/ Shout Love (Vinyl 7Rating: ★★★★★ Daytoner enter the 45 fray again this week with latest vinyl 7″ My Sweet Baby b/w Shout Love. The pounding A-side takes its cues from northern soul and makes heavy use of Jackie Wilson’s The Who Who Song though it is way more of an animal than anything that ever graced the sound system at The Twisted Wheel or Wigan Casino. Flip things over and suddenly we’re all

DAYTONER: Feel Like Jumping b/w Perfidious (Vinyl 7″)

DAYTONER:  Feel Like Jumping b/w Perfidious (Vinyl 7Rating: ★★★★★ Feel like jumping? You will do when you’ve heard this as Daytoner is all set to drop another gold standard double sure-shot 45 by way of a follow-up to the last time he released a gold standard double sure-shot 45. As with that release, our man has gone all out to ensure that dope but previously digital only re-versions finally get the 45 release they always deserved. This time the focus is a pair of rocksteady edits as he turns

DAYTONER: Apache Street/ Michael’s Incredible Twin (Vinyl 7″)

DAYTONER:  Apache Street/ Michael's Incredible Twin (Vinyl 7Rating: ★★★★★ Oohh hello, yes please! Daytoner takes time out from re-vitalising northern soul for the twenty-first century to do the decent thing and oversee a vinyl release for a brace of his previously digital-only ‘Shedits’ – Apache Street and Michael’s Incredible Twin. You remember – they both employ the Apache break to devastating effect and deliver a punch that Luke Cage would

DAYTONER: Shout Love

DAYTONER:  Shout Love Rating: ★★★★★ Hot on the heels of the summer’s Off The Hook LP, the Daytoner crew are back already with a new single Shout Love – which aims to channel the redemptive power of funky soul to relay a message of positivity and unity in these benighted times. Blimey – that’s a tall order. Still we can’t think negatively, we have to try, after all

DAYTONER: Off The Hook

DAYTONER:  Off The HookRating: ★★★★★ It’s been a while since Sunburst Radio hasn’t it? You remember – the debut Daytoner full-length released back in 2012 when it was all about one man, his samples, the occasional original tune and the odd mate popping round to add vox or instrumentation? Since then, that man, Steve Cantrill – known to all and sundry as ‘Moss’ – has surrounded himself with a six-
