SMOOVE: A Quest Called Tribe (Vinyl 7″)

SMOOVE: A Quest Called Tribe (Vinyl 7You can’t accuse Smoove of letting the grass grow under his feet when he’s not engaged on Smoove & Turrell business, for here is epic new vinyl 7″ cut n paste mix A Quest Called Tribe which tops even his previous Main Sourced 45. Where that project saw him take a mere three months to splice together every sample on Main Source’s first LP Breaking Atoms in order to fill two sides of wax, A

CHOI feat. GUILTY SIMPSON: Hip Hop Saved My LifeRating: ★★★★★ It’s probably been a while since mainstream hip-hop saved anyone’s life but there’s still potential in the underground, it seems. Step forward Ivan ‘Choi’ Khatchoyan, sometime drummer for Oz-funkers Cookin’ On 3 Burners, drummer and producer for funky covers outfit The Traffic, head of Choi Records and now, it seems, hip-hop producer – with new 45 banger Hip Hop

DRAGON FLI EMPIRE: Record Store (feat. J-LIVE)/ Fli Beat Patrol (Prod. DJAR ONE)(Vinyl 7″)

Rating: ★★★★★ No dead-of-winter lethargy for Calgary’s Dragon Fli Empire on the evidence of fresh dope 45 Record Store b/w Fli Beat Patrol. Side A sees Teekay and guest emcee J-Live trade bars over a bossa-based beat in a tribute to music in physical format – vinyl specifically – and the emporia in which such archaisms could once be found and indeed still can be if you look hard

THE MIGHTY MOCAMBOS: Golden Shadow / Preaching To The Choir (Vinyl 7″)

THE MIGHTY MOCAMBOS: Golden Shadow / Preaching To The Choir (Vinyl 7Rating: ★★★★★ Here’s a very happy new year to you all from The Mighty Mocambos who greet 2020 in the correct way with new vinyl 7″ single Golden Shadow. Yes, I know, it’s a title that almost sounds rude, doesn’t it? And that’s not the only thing that’s rude about it for when you listen to said cut, it turns out to be a breakneck car chase theme style thingy on which horns and retro-synth

DAYTONER: David’s Doctor b/w Ooh Lalo (Vinyl 7″)

DAYTONER: David's Doctor b/w Ooh Lalo (Vinyl 7Check Daytoner thinking he could slip the new ‘Friday’s Funky 45’ out under the radar just when everyone was sat around lethargic from rich food, lack of sunlight and a surfeit of alcohol. David’s Doctor employs the same David Axelrod sample used on The Next Episode by a certain production medic you may have forgotten about and teams it neatly with the world’s most famous drum

BOSSA 70: Think (Retro Roland Riso Perfecto rework)/ Get Out Of My Way (Retro Roland Riso Eterno Regroove) (Vinyl 7Rating: ★★★★★ If you dig Latin funk and you dug the last Bossa 70 7″ put out by the ever-reliable Matasuna Records, you’ll absolutely shit when you hear this 45. Whereas the last one featured two cuts re-mastered straight from the original 70s master tapes, this drop is all about DJ Retro Roland Riso’s edits of Bossa 70’s versions of Think and Get Out Of My Way. Both instros, the tracks

HEROES OF LIMBO: Madchester Woman / White Noise (Vinyl 7Alright our kid? Heard the new Madchester Woman vinyl 7″ from Matasuna Records? It’s from Heroes Of Limbo a.k.a. The Impellers’ Glenn Fallows and trombonist/arranger Gram ‘Canyon’ Treldavs. Turns out they’re mad fer a bit of 70s Afrobeat and Ghanaiian Highlife and wondered what it’d be like if they re-worked the ‘Mondays Loose Fit all Ebo Taylor like. And so buzzin’ were they after that

MAKO & MR BRISTOW: Stank Soul Edits Vol. 5Happily, there’s not been such a long gap between Mako & Mr Bristow releases this time as they deliver Stank Soul Edits Vol. 5 a mere six months after the sold-out and subsequently re-pressed Stank Soul Edits Vol 4.  For the new 45, the pair present you with A-side, Funky Diggin,’ which re-imagines a little known soul-rocker from a certain bunch of stoned soul picnickers as a mightily funky dancefloor-friendly diggers’ anthem.  Meanwhile
