COLEMINE RECORDS: Brighter Days Ahead (Double vinyl LP)

Brighter Days Ahead (Double vinyl LP)When Covid hit last year, Colemine Records figured that in the absence of gigs, with pressing plants closed and tours off the menu for the foreseeable, maybe their normal release schedule wasn’t quite the thing. And so they flipped the script and came up with their Brighter Days Ahead summer single series. The idea was simple – release a single every Friday throughout the

DUSTY DONUTS 19: Believe In Family (DJ GOCE Nuts Mix)/ Who’s Phenomenal (DJ GOCE Funkin’ It Edit )(Vinyl 7″)

Dusty Donuts 19 DJ GoceWho better to drop an edit called Believe In Family than the latest producer to join the Dusty Donuts family? That’ll be DJ Goce then, applying the tried-n-tested DD recipe of editing of a track once sampled in hip-hop with hip-hop aesthetics. Smooth as butter, you’d better believe this one’s guaranteed to make the lady crowd go nuts. He’ll have to pull something like a phenomenon out of the bag for a suitable B-side – but can his

The man must live like the Road Runner – always moving at maximum velocity and only glimpsed as a blur

MR BRISTOW: Xmas Mix 2020

MR BRISTOW: Xmas Mix 2020It has been a shitty year hasn’t it? Global pandemic, movement curtailed, holidays cancelled, jobs lost, and presiding over the whole mess, a flailing and nakedly corrupt government. Still at least there’s always a pub or a club to go to. Oh wait, no, can’t go to those either. What everyone needs is cheering up! We need to escape from reality (at least temporarily) and return to

JALAPENO RECORDS: Two Decades Of Funk Fire + Ltd. 7″ Vinyl Boxset

Two Decades Of Funk FireRating: ★★★★★ An artist roster like that of Jalapeno Records does tend to render idle boasting superfluous, so when they entitle a compilation to celebrate twenty years as a going concern Two Decades Of Funk Fire, you’d better believe the hype. How is it ‘funk fire’ though? Let me count the ways. Firstly, there’s one track for each year of the label’s existence. No need to
