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

THE ALLERGIES feat. ANDY COOPER: 2Much! b/w Special 45

‘One, two, MUCH!’ Thus begins The Allergies new 45 featuring erstwhile UD emcee and unofficial third allergy Andy Cooper. Cue uptempo double bass line, a million jazzy and funky samples and Mr Cooper on top form machine-gunning syllables into the mic. Don’t forget to listen carefully to the shout-outs though as the earth-sheltered glory of Gloucester Services gets a namecheck in amongst

ALDO VANUCCI feat. KYLIE AULDIST: Get A Hold On This + remixes

The latest single to be taken from Aldo Vanucci’s party-bumpin’ second LP, Diggin For A Living, is the Kylie Auldist-featuring, neo-northern soul stomping Get A Hold On This, which comes with a remix package so groovalicious, it might as well be called ‘Get A Hold Of This’. First up are The Allergies who, presumably figuring it would be hard to make things even more stomping, get a

ALDO VANUCCI: Digging For A Living

ALDO VANUCCI: Digging For A LivingRating: ★★★★★ As with its predecessor, Aldo Vanucci’s second long-player, Digging For A Living, goes by a title that references its debt to samples while its mix of soul, funk and hip-hop-flavoured party breaks continues precisely where Straight Lift left off, as if a mere twelve years hadn’t elapsed between release dates. It is called Digging… not Releasing… though and I think we

ALDO VANUCCI: Ponderosa (feat. DENA DEADLY)/ Knew You Were Coming (Vinyl 7″)

ALDO VANUCCI: Ponderosa (feat. DENA DEADLY)/ Knew You Were Coming (Vinyl 7When he’s not flipping soul, supplying samples to Fatboy Slim, or undertaking epic dj sets for charity, there’s a fair bet that Plymouth’s 14th best DJ, Aldo Vanucci, is making his own music. Indeed there’s a veritable bonanza of it coming in the form of twelve track album Digging For A Living next month – the first track on which is Ponderosa and the first single off which is also Ponderosa. On

SMOOVE & TURRELL: Solid Brass: Ten Years Of Northern Funk

SMOOVE & TURRELL: Solid Brass: Ten Years Of Northern FunkHoway man! Was it really as long ago as 2009 that Smoove & Turrell burst onto the scene with debut album Antique Soul prompting the monkey to re-name Smoove, ‘Berry Geordie’? You’d better believe it! Ten whole years of solid brass – er – I mean solid gold releases – and whether you call it ‘northern funk’ or ‘northern coal’, it’s been a whirlwind ride of world-beating music that has

Why – keep things moving of course! And so it is that Bristol’s funky sons The Allergies drop new four track EP Keep It Moving. The title track, naturally, is the Skunkadelic-featuring number

SMOOVE & TURRELL: Mount Pleasant Remixed Vol. 2

SMOOVE & TURRELL:  Mount Pleasant Remixed Vol. 2Mount Pleasant Remixed Vol. 2 follows Vol. 1 as Smoove & Turrell once more make free with the stems from their latest LP. Perhaps they launched them over their heads to remixers like a pair of coy northern brides tossing flowers to a baying pit of single ladies at a wedding – we’ll never know. What is certain is that the ones who got lucky are Flevans, The Allergies and once again Valique –

DR RUBBERFUNK: My Life At 45 (Part 2) (Vinyl 7″)

DR RUBBERFUNK: My Life At 45 (Part 2) (Vinyl 7Where’s there’s a Part 1, you know there’s a Part 2 – and here it is, the second instalment of Dr Rubberfunk’s My Life At 45. You what? Yes, it’s a gag – he’s forty-five and it’s a 45 rpm slice of wax. This time the A-side is sax-y jazzstrumental Canvas Cathedral – consisting of a spacey uptempo breakbeat backdrop from Rubbers and expansive horn daubs from Ben Castle. Things

FLEVANS feat. LAURA VANE: Invisible

FLEVANS feat. LAURA VANE:  InvisibleFlevans’ latest single, Invisible, is the third to be released off his forthcoming long-player, Part-Time Millionaire, the second to feature songstress Laura Vane and the best one yet so let’s hope it’s showing up on everyone’s radar. It starts off with pensive rhythm guitar, bass and head-nodding drum break while our Laura hopes she can escape a ‘few dark days’ during which she’s been ‘choking
