THE ALLERGIES: Felony/ Rile ‘Em Up (feat. ANDY COOPER & MARIETTA SMITH)(Vinyl 7″)

THE ALLERGIES: Felony/ Rile 'Em Up (feat. ANDY COOPER & MARIETTA SMITH)(Vinyl 7Rating: ★★★★★ New Allergies LP Say The Word drops later this year but it would be tantamount to a felony for them to leave you till then without any new material. Which is why they’re all set to rile you up with a new vinyl 45 out today entitled – er – Felony and backed with the Andy Cooper and Marietta Smith-featuring Rile ‘Em Up. The former is the result of the boys having co-opted another

DR RUBBERFUNK: My Life At 45 (Vinyl LP)

DR RUBBERFUNK:  My Life At 45 (Vinyl LP)If you’ve been awake over the last eight months, you’ll know Jalapeno stalwart, Dr Rubberfunk, has been dropping a series of hot vinyl 7s every couple of months entitled My Life At 45 – each featuring a couple of nuggets from the good Dr’s studio plus a bonus beats type cut. What better plan next than to assemble all the tracks (sans bonus beat cuts) together on vinyl LP? That means a second chance

SMOOVE & TURRELL: Do It + video

SMOOVE & TURRELL: Do It + videoHeads up everyone, it’s time for a new single from Smoove & Turrell, which goes by the catch-all double entendre title of Do It. Said cut takes the form of classic S&T 125 bpm 80s disco soul and features more slap bass than Mark King and Flea going head-to-head in a bass-slapping competition on the planet Larry Graham. Meanwhile Turrell belts out the hook, “Come on and do it (Do It!)/

IZO FITZROY: Blind Faith

IZO FITZROY: Blind FaithIzo FitzRoy’s back with new disco-soul single Blind Faith – the third to be taken from her forthcoming album How The Mighty Fall. Turns out it’s neither a commemoration of a certain late sixties supergroup nor a comment on the government’s Brexit strategy but a meditation on giving relationships another go when they haven’t been quite what they should. Helping her along on this

FLEVANS feat. LAURA VANE: Mr Right

FLEVANS feat. LAURA VANE: Mr RightTeaming up once more with soul songstress Laura Vane, it’s Flevans toting the positively Prince-channeling new single Mr Right. Is that ‘head voice’ or ‘female falsetto’ Vane’s employing? Frankly you won’t care as you’ll be sucked into the groove before you can say, ‘fat bass, slap bass, rhythm guitar and sax.’ What you going to pair that with Mr F? A pumping slice of uptempo Latin

DR RUBBERFUNK: My Life At 45 (Part 3) (Vinyl 7″)

DR RUBBERFUNK: My Life At 45 Part 3Dr Rubberfunk continues his run of My Life At 45 – er – 45s – with My Life At 45 Part 3 then. Surely he must be forty-six by now though because Part 1 came out in July 2018 didn’t it? What’s that? Oh rrrright – I’ve got you – well – I didn’t think he’d mind since he’s made his age part of the title! Erm anyway – so Dr Rubberfunk is still a very youthful 45 and this one’s lead cut is the wistful (not to

SMOOVE: Recorded Delivery

SMOOVE: Recorded DeliveryEight years after his original Jalapeno Records remix comp. First Class dropped, Smoove finally follows up with the sequel, Recorded Delivery. Eight years! Why the wait? Well that’ll partly be the small matter of writing, producing and touring the three Smoove & Turrell LPs that have come out in that time, all those live DJ sets and many of the remixes which are collected on this – so many in

THE ALLERGIES: Every Trick In The Book (Vinyl 7″)

THE ALLERGIES: Every Trick In The Book (Vinyl 7Rating: ★★★★★ I don’t know – those Allergies boys, they make you feel good and they know how to turn you on. Oh wait, no, that’s – well…never mind. What I meant was The Allergies make you feel good and they know every trick in the book – which, as we all know, has resulted in an impressive run of grooves that keep you hooked. Take their forthcoming 45 banger – er – Every

THE ALLERGIES feat. ANDY COOPER: Nuff Respect

THE ALLERGIES feat. ANDY COOPER: Nuff Respect I hope you’re ready for new Allergies material because, Nuff Respect, their next track featuring the increasingly official-looking ‘unofficial third member’ Andy Cooper, has just dropped. Hang on wasn’t Nuff Respect a Big Daddy Kane cut? Yep, it’s rap cover time as the boys re-work a biggie from back in the day and give props to a golden era legend. Like the original, this one loops crowd

ALDO VANUCCI feat. KYLIE AULDIST: You’re All Show (FLEVANS remix)

ALDO VANUCCI feat. KYLIE AULDIST: You're All Show (FLEVANS remix)Seems it’s finally time for You’re All Show, the Kylie Auldist-featuring highlight from Aldo Vanucci’s recent Digging For A Living album to get a single release and it’s accompanied by a Flevans remix. The big band funk sound of the original has actually been floating around since 2012 when it first appeared on Vanucci’s Love Is Loops EP (so you must know how dope it is by now!) and, sadly, it still isn’t out on 45 as this is a digi-only release
