THE HAWKMEN:  Hotrod N Soul EPRating: ★★★★★ Purveyors of a northern soul, early sixties R&B and rockabilly fusion, The Hawkmen have named their new 45 EP, Hotrod N Soul, after that very musical concoction – a mixture so potent you could use it to fuel a dragster. And leading the field of tracks on this one is Bonnie & Clyde, a shuffling groove punctuated by chanking guitar with singer Scarlett reflecting on choosing an

KAZAHAYA: High Enough / Forever (Vinyl 7It’s pumping disco mash-up bizniz from the Disco Bits crew once again as they find a kindred spirit only too willing to bathe his work in the glittering coke-dusted light of the mirrorball. That’ll be sometime hip-hop producer Kazahaya then – a man clearly as spiritually at home in Studio 54 as he is at The Latin Quarter. High Enough splices Rare Pleasure’s Let Me Down Easy into Ain’t No Mountain High Enough – the latter possibly Inner

Still, at least the journey is highly groovy
