NICO GOMEZ & HIS AFRO-PERCUSSION INC: Chibiquiban b/w Chibiquiban (TONTON BOOM edit) (Vinyl 7″)

NICO GOMEZ & HIS AFRO-PERCUSSION INC: Chibiquiban b/w Chibiquiban (TONTON BOOM edit) (Vinyl 7?)Rating: ★★★★★ I bet you didn’t expect another Nico Gomez 45 re-release and accompanying edit so soon after the last one did you? Here’s one anyway though as super hot Gomez number Chibiquiban gets a vinyl 7″ outing – and it’s arguably even better.  Not least of the reasons for this is the fact that the edit on the B-side comes from Tonton Boom a.k.a Mr Boom which the

NOLA BREAKS V7: Dap Walk (MR BOOM remix) b/w I’m Your Hoochie Coochie Man (PROFESSOR SHORTHAIR remix) (Vinyl 7″)

NOLA BREAKS V?7:  Dap Walk (MR BOOM remix) b?/?w I'm Your Hoochie Coochie Man (PROFESSOR SHORTHAIR remix) (Vinyl 7Mr Boom has shown a keen ear for an edit for time now so it’s excellent news that he’s got himself onto vinyl and netted the A-side of Nola Breaks V7 with a remix of Ernie & The Top Notes’ clattering funk bomb Dap Walk. The result is a cut well over a minute longer than the original, with extra drums layered on and extended sections which include replacing the original’s fade with

ONDENO: Mayolye (Original single version?)? b?/?w Mayolye (Nik Weston official Mukatsuku edit?)? (12Look sharp – Rocafort Records are at it again with a 12″ repress of the original version of Jean Ondeno’s big-ass late seventies afro-disco number Mayolye. That’s nearly four minutes of pumping wah-wah drenched four-to-the-floor with layer upon layer of extra afro-percussive elements to you. And since it’s afro-funk related and a remix is required, there’s only one person in town to ask

DENNIS BROWN: Westbound Train (TARZAN BROS. edit)(2017) Free download

DENNIS BROWN: Westbound Train (TARZAN BROS. edit Free downloadIt’s nearly summer which means it’s nearly reggae, reggae time which means it is time for Tarzan Bros. to swing into action with an nifty early reggae edit.

Not in an egregious way of course – this isn’t Southern

DUSTY DONUTS 11:  Risin' To The Top (JIM SHARP edit)/ Mary Jane (JIM SHARP's Buddha edit)Like cream, the Dusty Donuts label rises to the top again with a richly smooth re-drummed edit of Keni Burke’s slick slab of eighties silk – er –

ONDATROPICA: Cumbia Especial (MANOSJMT edit)(2017)

ONDATROPICA:  Cumbia Especial (MANOSJMT edit)There was a time a couple of years ago when you could barely move for breakbeat edits of Latin tracks – all of them good, not a few of them cumbia-based and for some reason, many of them done by Greek producers. Lately though, such fare has been thin on the ground. Luckily, Manosjmt is here to fill the gap in the market with his edit of Ondatropica’s Cumbia Especial. You’ll note from

PAPAS’ GOT: I Wanna Love 12″ re-issue (2017) + AL KENT edit

Papa’s got a re-issue and an Al Kent edit! Nope nothing to do with James Brown – other than the fact that Jamaican-born Rowland Abrahams loved dancing to Mr Dynamite so much he got a JB-related nickname – Papas’ Got – complete with misplaced apostrophe. Which he then used when recording his ’79 disco LP I Wanna Love in Paris. Said album yielded a killer funky-afro-disco biscuit

RAG N BONE MAN: Human (MANOSJMT edit) (2017) Free download

Human Rag N Bone Man Manosjmt editRating: ★★★★★ The indefatigable Manosjmt turns his sights to Rag N Bone Man for his latest edit. Having clearly identified a singer with soul, he then sets to work identifying the missing element from last summer’s hit. It’s a double time stomping beat of course which means that this edit delivers the unexpected sound of Rag N Bone Man keeping the faith in a neo-northern soul style
