Ah yes – the season of Yule, a time for family arguments, Christmas Eve punch-ups outside your local (“Leave it Steve! ‘E’s not worth it!”) and increasingly desperate ways to get rid of all the leftover turkey. And, of course the dubious ‘pleasure’ of the festive single. Tired of Slade, Wham and that fucking song by Wizzard? Italian funk label Record Kicks might have the answer as they come over all St Nick style with their timely offering of this limited 45 featuring The Diplomats Of Solid Sound and Ray Harris. Coincidentally the label’s boss goes by the name Nick. Is there something we should be told? Don’t be recordkickulous – talking of which – they’re offering 20% off all merch until 15 December apparently…details below player.
DIPLOMATS OF SOLID SOUND – Let It Snow by Record Kicks
RAY HARRIS & THE FUSION EXPERIENCE – Soulful Christmas – Listen at soundcloud
(PRESS RELEASE) In celebration of the Winter festivities and to welcome the New Year in style, Record Kicks presents this special 45 containing two new and unpublished covers of x-mas tunes. On the A side we find Iowa City ambassadors of funk&soul The Diplomats Of Solid Sound with a super funky x-over version of Sammy Cham’s Christmas classic “Let it snow”, guaranteed to get you in a merry mood! On the flip, Scottish jazz-dance hip cats Ray Harris & The Fusion Experience provide a real belter with their Hammond beat cover of James Brown’s “Soulful Christmas”. Talk about the season to be jolly, these tracks would even get the Grinch groovin to the spirit of Christmas and singin “ho ho ho”! But watch out, this 45 is limited to 300 copies, so don’t wait for Santa to leave it under your tree, grab your copy now! With best wishes to all from RK.
