SAM REDMORE: Universal Vibrations LP

SAM REDMORE:  Universal Vibrations LPYou’ve been reading about the singles here on MB since last September (five of them no less!) covering a range of genres and sub-genres but this month it’s Sam Redmore’s debut long player, Universal Vibrations which has finally dropped. It’s an eleven-track set with a name that implicitly makes the bold claim of being able to rock the

FLEVANS: It Takes The Whole Day / In Shadows

FLEVANS: It Takes The Whole Day / In ShadowsHere’s the new single from Flevans then, It Takes The Whole Day. Wait, what!? It’s a twenty-four hour long track?! He’s not messing around is he? No, stupid, that’s the title – It Takes The Whole Day. Wait, what!? The title takes the whole day? etc. etc. Hours of fun. Though actually, the new Flevans single actually only provides three minutes, four seconds of orchestra-drenched pop-

THE ALLERGIES: Vamonos feat. ANDY COOPER & MARIETTA SMITH (Vinyl 7″)

THE ALLERGIES: Vamonos feat. ANDY COOPER & MARIETTA SMITHThe dream-team is back then, as The Allergies team-up with Andy Cooper and Marietta Smith to launch Vamonos, their first drop in quite some time – since November if the monkey remembers correctly. Vamonos? Oh what – Spanish for ‘Let’s go’? Precisely. And given the time of year, it would make sense if this was a ‘going on holiday’ song. It is! Well, what are the chances? Naturally with a

SAM REDMORE (feat. LUMI): Just Can’t Wait

SAM REDMORE (feat. LUMI):  Just Can't WaitHe’s done the funk (On The One with Haggis horns), soul jazz (Party with Lumi), a cumbia/reggae cross (with Andrea Brown covering SOS Band’s Just Be Good To Me) and more cumbia-isms on Georgia Moroder cover Tears so whither next for Sam Redmore? Turns out it’s planet disco and with singer Lumi in tow once

SOOPASOUL: Brand Nu (142 Original Studio Mix)(Vinyl 7″)

SOOPASOUL:  Brand Nu (142 Original Studio Mix)Time for more from the Jalapeno vaults to go out on 45 and in this case from the back catalogue of Soopasoul, though with something of a twist. That’s right – a twist – for this version of uptempo funk heater Brand Nu is not the one that featured on 2009 Soopasoul LP, Twin Stix. Nope, this is the ‘142 Original Studio Mix’ a.k.a. the first recorded version that later became a bit more refined. At least

KRAAK & SMAAK: Squeeze Me (Vinyl 7″)

KRAAK & SMAAK: Squeeze Me (Vinyl 7Jalapeno Records scores another hit scouring their back catalog for stuff to release on 45 for the first time and for the second time this year it’s old Kraak & Smaak material they use. Both tracks on the release are lifted from 2008’s Plastic People LP – the A-side being funky breakbeat-powered, Ben Westbeech-featuring banger Squeeze Me. Turns out that, back in the day, the track was

SAM REDMORE: Tears (Vinyl 7″)

SAM REDMORE:  Tears (Vinyl 7There’ll be no crying over the new Tears 7″ by current Jalapeno Records hot property Sam Redmore who takes Giorgio Moroder’s 1972 cut and re-invents it through a Latin prism. And if the track name isn’t sounding all that familiar, maybe you know it better as the main sample source for that Organ Donor track on DJ Shadow’s Endtroducing LP – i.e. the only one DJs play. Full

RADIO TRIP: Music Heads (Vinyl re-issue)

If you enjoyed the recent ‘first time on vinyl’ release for Radio Trip’s 2009 uptempo b-boy cut Computers Singing on 7″, you’ll be feeling like your cup runneth over with the re-release of the album from which that single came. That’ll be Radio Trip’s 2009 cut n paste sample masterpiece, Music Heads then. But why might this prompt such a joyous response given that said LP

SAM REDMORE feat. ANDREA BROWN: Just Be Good To Me (Vinyl 7″)

SAM REDMORE feat. ANDREA BROWN:  Just Be Good To Me Before Beats International’s mighty Dub Be Good To Me, there was of course The SOS Band’s even mightier electro-funk chugger Just Be Good To Me. You can now make that a mighty trio with the arrival of yet another wildly different interpretation in the form of this one from Jalapeno Records’ man of the moment, Sam Redmore, who has gone for a cumbia-style take

KRAAK & SMAAK: Money In The Bag (Vinyl 7″)

KRAAK & SMAAK:  Money In The Bag (Vinyl 7Rating: ★★★★★ Continuing their mission to release the very best ‘never before on 45’ tracks from their vaults, Jalapeno Records now dig up Money In The Bag by Dutch duo Kraak & Smaak latterly known for nu-disco, Balearic and house-y electronica. But all that shenanigans is now; Money In The Bag (K&S Remix) is from way back then when the pair first delivered this sultry In
