BEAT BRONCO ORGAN TRIO: Easy Baby b/w Geriatric Dance (Vinyl 7It’s new blood time on Rocafort Records as they release a seven inch from Madrid-based outfit, the Beat Bronco Organ Trio. The band’s members are known for having previously played with the likes of the Sweet Vandals and Chip Wickham and their pedigree shows on the two tracks on offer here.

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

GERALD MCCAULEY & COLD DIAMOND & MINK: Wondering (Vinyl 7″)

GERALD MCCAULEY & COLD DIAMOND & MINK:  Wondering (Vinyl 7Lowrider soul does seem to be big at the minute doesn’t it? So much so in fact, that when a big tune comes along, people can’t leave it alone, it seems. DJ Mike Noriega for example, was smitten enough with the B-side version of Pratt & Moody’s 2017 cut Lost Lost Lost featuring the music of Timmion House Band Cold Diamond & Mink sans vocalist, that he wrote new lyrics for it. Enter vocalist Gerald McCauley to deliver Noriega’s

LEE FIELDS: Will I Get Off Easy (Vinyl 7″) + video + 2019 tour dates

LEE FIELDS:  Will I Get Off Easy (Vinyl 7Soul survivor Lee Fields celebrated fifty years in the business this year and, with absolutely no signs of slowing down whatsoever, drops the video to Will I Get Off Easy, the flip to the title track, from forthcoming long-player, It Rains Love. Will he get off easy!? What have you been up to now Lee, you sly old dog? The lyrics are conveniently nebulous – he’s been stopping out late again

LUCKY BROWN & THE SG’s: Sweet Tea (With My Sweetie) (Vinyl 7″)

On the PR blah, it says that Lucky Brown & The SG’s Sweet Tea (With My Sweetie) is the only ‘lost track’ from the sessions that produced last LP Mesquite Suite and damn if you won’t be glad they ‘found’ it again. Given the fact that the album took an afro-funky and film-score jazzy direction, you can see why a fat spit-and-sawdust, shuffling Texas-funk nugget like Sweet Tea might not have

DUBBEN: Jesus Boogie b/w Cachaça (Vinyl 7″)

DUBBEN:  Jesus Boogie b/w Cachaça (Vinyl 7Rating: ★★★★★ How do Matasuna Records do it? The time between vinyl 7″ releases shrinks again yet they put out their best release so far – why it’s against all natural law! Not that anyone will be complaining about this brace of Latin bangers from serial editors and former Resense and GAMM suspects Dubben, you understand. A-side Jesus Boogie is a re-version of a seventies Brazilian

TRDMRK: Hands Up (Vinyl 7″) + video

TRDMRK:  Hands Up + videoRating: ★★★★★ Anyone for a quick Q&A? Hands up who used to dj and produce for Jurassic 5 aside from Cut Chemist? Well done, yes, it was DJ Nu-Mark. Now, hands up who can name the person missing from this list of original Pharcyde members: Fatlip, Booty Brown and Imani. That’s right – Slimkid3. And a slightly harder one – hands up if you know the name of that guy who got the

BOBBY OROZA: Your Love Is Too Cold b/w Deja Vu (Vinyl 7″)

BOBBY OROZA:  Your Love Is Too Cold b/w Deja Vu (Vinyl 7Big Crown signing Bobby Oroza is from Finland and has a new vinyl 7″ out – Your Love Is Too Cold. But if you’re expecting music that speaks of grim arctic winters, wind and snow howling around where you’re holed up drinking vodka until the sun returns some time around June, forget it. Despite its title, Oroza’s new one is an uptempo retro-soul cut that draws from northern, surf and psychedelic

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

SHEILA TETTEH QUAYE: Miss Uncertainty b/w Soul Caesar (Vinyl 7″)

SHEILA TETTEH QUAYE:  Miss CertaintyRating: ★★★★★ Here we go them – absolutely no doubt that Sheila Tetteh Quaye’s new funk 45 Miss Uncertainty is most definitely fire. Sheila Tetteh who? Nope, the monkey neither. This didn’t come in as a submission, it just hove into to view on the web and a quick stab at googling yielded nothing but dead-end Google+ and Facebook pages though there is an FB page for Swiss label That’s
