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

SOUL FLIP EDITS 8: Your Love Has Lifted Me (Higher & Higher) / I Go To Pieces Every Time (Vinyl 7″)

SOUL FLIP EDITS 8: Your Love Has Lifted Me (Higher & Higher) / I Go To Pieces Every Time (Vinyl 7Soul Flip Edits 8? I think so! Incredibly, Gazeebo and Vanucci are back already with a new 7″, this time delivering blistering re-rubs of northern soul cuts on both sides. As always it’s an edit of a better known artist paired with one of someone marginally more obscure which, in this particular case, translates to flips of the mighty Otis Redding’s take on Your Love Has Lifted Me (Higher

CANNON & MIRRORBALL: Black Rhythm Rap/ Makin Time (Vinyl 7″)

CANNON & MIRRORBALL: Black Rhythm Rap/ Makin Time (Vinyl 7So successful was Cannon & Mirrorball’s last set of cut n paste disco antics for the Disco Bits label that they’ve been invited back again to do another 45 – Black Rhythm Rap b/w Makin Time. The latter cuts up Loleatta Holloway’s 1980s hit Love Sensation for a funky nu-disco excursion and in doing so reclaims the track as a sample source from the clammy hands of 90s Italo-house casualties Black Box. For the monkey though, it’s

BADBOE & TOM SHOWTIME: Toxic Funk Vol. 1 (Vinyl 7Having popped their 45 cherry back in the spring with Mako & Mr Bristow’s Stank Soul Edits Vol. 4, the Breakbeat Paradise crew are obviously keen to enlarge their slice of the lucrative vinyl 7″ market. And so it is that Badboe & Tom Showtime team-up to deliver the second 45 on Breakbeat Paradise this year with Toxic Funk Vol. 1. The title notwithstanding, this vinyl 7″ actually provides phat hip-hop booties for the dancefloor. The first of

ESPADRILLE: Bandana Breaks b/w Funk Off (Vinyl 7″)

ESPADRILLE: Bandana Breaks b/w Funk Off (Vinyl 7Espadrille plant their rope-soled feet firmly back onto the Hammond funk scene with new 45 Bandana Breaks b/w Funk Off. The duo travel under the names ‘T. Montana’ (‘say hello to my little fren’!’) and the vaguely New Mastersounds-y ‘H. Shand’ and have apparently been making music for decades. As they’re studio bound though, they’ve had no need to elbow their way

FORT KNOX FIVE: The Brazilian Hipster (Vinyl 7″)

FORT KNOX FIVE: The Brazilian Hipster (Vinyl 7Back in 2004 when Fort Knox Five’s fifth release and signature cut The Brazilian Hipster first came out, the vinyl 12″ was still king of DJ formats, digital was a dirty word and the 45 was little more than the province of die-hard spinners of old wax. Fast forward to now and the 12″ is a rarity, digital’s huge (but still a dirty word in some parts) while there’s nothing hipper than a vinyl 7″. What

MARTA REN: Worth It (Vinyl 7″)

MARTA REN: Worth It (Vinyl 7“Was it worth it? Am I worth it? The pain ain’t worth it? I don’t know,” sings Marta Ren on the hook of new 45 Worth It – like she doesn’t already know the answer. Of course it was worth it! We commence with the rumbling bass, funky drums of a heavy mid-tempo soul groove, in comes some tremelo guitar and then the Porto soul queen is off, “Something told me this was a trap.” No –
