Funky Destination's "Down To The Music" was release to much applause last October. Now their Greek nu-disco label Timewarp has decided to extend the party by releasing a host of new mixes of the piano-led stomper, and who can blame them? There's nine different takes supplied here, the best including Quincy Jointz's urgent jazzy souler which is also turned into a spellbinding minimal tech-house anthem by Valique.
Raw, unfettered funk from one of LA's hardest working live outfits, Ray Frazier and Shades Of Madness recorded a criminal amount of 45s... One of which - "My Baby's Hand" - regularly fetches the handsome sum of L1000 between collectors. Instantly triggering the biggest northern soul sensations (stomping beats, relentless super-tight grooves, show-stopping splashes of bold soul), this will resonate with, and unite all, funk and soul aficionados across the globe. Highlights include the strident string-led blues riff on the aforementioned "My Baby's Hand", the chop-slapping JB-echoing tightness of "I Who Have Nothing" and the lazier, luxurious swing of "Gonna Get Your Love". Jazzman have curated an exceptional document right here.
