Al Kent: Edits

So Good - (10:27) 89 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
BUY
Victorious - (8:11) 128 BPM
from $1.86
Review: Here we have a real meeting of minds with the esteemed re-edit label Gamm recruiting Glasgow's very own nu-disco veteran Al Kent to serve up some more of his fine work for our listening pleasure. There are just two cuts featured here, but who needs quantity when you can have quality, eh? "So Good" sees a sultry seductress heavily breathe her words over a smouldering Love Hangover-style twanging groove. "Victorious" meanwhile incorporates 70s disco rock, over-excited clavinets and bongos galore. Heavy-duty boogie vibes!

Review: In 1976 the unstoppable music monster that is disco finally broke out across New York City, turning it into the coolest place on earth, probably before and certainly since. It was the first time that DJs ventured into the studio to create jams aimed directly at their dancefloors. Now Bare Breaking even have painstakingly assembled about 30 of the most essential tunes from this time. What you'll encounter here are the ground breaking edits and remixes by some of the most important figures of the period including Walter Gibbons, Tom Savarese, Jellybean Benitez and John Luongo. Priceless.

You're What's Missing In My Life - (5:41) 107 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release

Let's Straighten It Out - (5:12) 93 BPM
from $1.86
Review: Having tantalised us with his debut retweaks on Chopshop one year ago, the mysterious DJ "S" is back with two more gems for our listening pleasure. The vibes here though are a little less disco and veer more towards the soulful and funky end of the 70s spectrum. "You're What's Missing In My Life" features a killer backbeat, chiming retro production, Philly strings and seductive Marvin-style vocals. On the digital flip we get the brass and piano lament "Let's Straighten It Out", where a croaky voiced dude tries his best to get his end way with his sulking, unimpressed partner.

I Don't Care (Bopperson remix) - (6:04) 116 BPM
from $1.86
Review: The second version instalment that explores Kuti student Sosimi's 2015 album You No Fit Touch Am, Wah Wah have recruited more innovators to take fresh perspectives on Dele's crisp Afrobeat. DJ Khalab mirrors the guitars with rising synth textures that sit subtly in the background adding more tension that's released with a brilliant blunt bass hook. O Flynn adds just a little dubby disco charm to "E Go Betta" while Books gives "I Don't Care" a serious twist as it intros with swooshing Hidden Orchestra style breaks before dipping into a chugging house stomp. Bopperson closes on a slow smouldering note, creating more space around the Dele's beautiful instrumentation. Refixes fit to touch.

Review: More regularly found on the Pig Balls label, Pulpfusion here releases Funk Never Sleeps via BPR. The title track is a slap bass funk rock spectacular featuring Morris Chestnut, Lorenzo Medici and someone called Jim. Remixer Jayl Funk also rocks up to take the tune downtown to cool, retro New York block party. Elsewhere "The Beat Inside My Soul" is steamy, rolling 60s mod funk jam, given a party friendly electro-swing makeover by DJ Maars and turned into party breaks territory by Rory Hoy. Extra party breaks ammo can also be found in bonus cuts "Beat The Clock" and "Feeling The Blues".

Review: A little funk sensibility can be the best of remedies to sooth your winter chills, and this new 20-track compilation from JalapeNo is the perfect remedy. The imprint has it down when it comes to releasing contemporary soul-dance, and peeps like the Ephemerals, Basement Freaks, and Izo Fitzroy are all revelations in of themselves. Just to give you a little flavour of this steaming hotpot of sounds and grooves, there's a little tribal disco slaying on Soopasoul's "Hustlin'", vintage Motown soul with The Allergies and "Since Youave Been Gone", and contemporary r&b vibes through the vocal talent of Alexia Coley and her "Jekyll & Hyde" tune. There's something in here for all walks of life, so be sure to flick through this baby to find your kink.

Dues Paid Fast/How I Like - (5:24) 111 BPM

Review: There will no doubt be much debate about the identity of the "hyped" editor behind GAMM's latest missive - the 'L' in his or her new moniker is, apparently, a clue - but it's the quality of the edits on show that matters most. Opener "Not Easy", a dubbed-out, chopped-up chunk of disco-funk sweetness full of meandering horn lines, rubber electric bass and woozy synths, is arguably the pick of the bunch, though the loopy, dewy-eyed soul-jazz attack that is "Dues Paid Fast/How I Like" is also rather good. Those looking for jazzier dancefloor flavours should also check "Jazz in Italics", a high-octane jazz-dance re-edit full of fluttering flute lines, sweaty drumming and fluid piano solos.

Don't YouKnow, Baby - (5:11) 111 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $1.86
Review: G.A.M.M's man in Paris, Young Pulse, is a talented chap. His periodic re-edit releases on the long-serving Swedish label have been amongst the most impressive rework-heavy EPs of recent years. Volume 4 is a little less expansive than usual, boasting just two cuts; happily, though, both are superb. "Everybody, Free Your Body" is a soaring, spiraling rearrangement and extension of The Dells largely overlooked 1977 album cut "Get On Down", which sounds like the stuff memorable midnight moments are made of. On the virtual flipside you'll find the similarly soulful and funk-fuelled "Don't YouKnow, Baby", a superb straightening out and subtle beef-up of L.T.D's 1980 jam "Don'tcha Know".

Review: Ok folks, it's a new Bomb Strikes release, you should all know the drill by now. Yep, it's all about party friendly breaks and mash-ups here, so leave your arty pretensions at the door, thank you very much. Here we have two self-professed 'funkmasters', Prosper and the suggestively titled Stabfinger hooking up for three sizzling jams. The title track mixes brassy big beat and daisy age rap, whilst "Don't Hold Back" is pure hands-in-the-air poppy electro funk before "Baby Baby Please" wraps it all up nicely with an infectious fusion of electro-swing, rap and cumbia beats.

Review: Massive boogie joint from 1982, Frazelle's "Today Is The Day" packs the same punch it did 35 years ago; stomping beats, salubrious guitars, widescreen production and gutsy vocals from Ken Frazelle himself. Powerful in the lyrical, technical and party dynamics this is a huge dancefloor record... This reissue is long overdue. You know what to do.

Review: Swindle's latest jam is a total homage to the chrome and carpet dancefloors of 1980s. No one's being conned here though as there is nothing but pure love of the Minneapolis sound with this here EP including a homage to the mighty Purple One. There are four tracks in all with the title tracks being a fresh update on the early Rick James funk blueprint and "Sympathy" could be a smoochy Wendy & Lisa grind from 1987. Elsewhere the warped nu-funk "Saturns Returns" and "New Life" sounds like a stoned Maxwell tryin' out some g-funk shizzle.

It's a vibrantly international affair too as Fab Samperi polishes up the sexy French tones of "Mr Debonair" and Omegaman turns his Cuban heels into a pair of Cuban stilts on "No Puede Esperar". Elsewhere we find Jiggyjoe giving "Heatwave" go-faster stripes and Skeewiff going head-to-head with Shawn Lee on a live, organic D&B slammer rub of "I Got Soul". Unleash the animal in you and grab this today!

Review: Given the infamous depth of Nick The Record's vinyl collection, you'd expect this contribution to Z Records' excellent Under The Influence series to be packed to the rafters with unheralded gems. Predictably, it is, delivering 22 cuts that should be thrillingly new to all but the most dusty-fingered collectors. Picking out highlights from such an excellent and in-depth collection is tough, but try the steel drums-laden celebration of Boogsie's "Can't You See Me", the synth-laden jazz-funk badness of "Keep Your Shoes" by MC and His Great Googa-Moogas, and the fizzing, melody-rich 808 electro of Ronnie Jones "Video Games". If that's not enough there's also a swathe of DJ-friendly re-edits from Nick himself.

Review: For their latest full-length exploration of the world of spiritual jazz - the label's seventh, in total - Jazzman has decided to focus on artists and performers whose Islamic faith influenced their work. Given that many jazz greats were early converts to the spiritually charged Ahmadiya school of Islam - Kenny Clarke, Art Blakey, Ahmad Jamal and Yusuf Lateef included - there's plenty of fine material for Jazzman to explore. Highlights naturally come thick and fast, with standouts including the Persian jazz-fusion of Emmanuel Abdul-Rahim's "Kalamari Suite", the haunting flutes and intoxicating bongo rhythms of Sabu and Sihab Shahib's "Nus", and The Lightmen's celebratory epic, "All Praises To Allah (Part 1 & 2)".

Yuri Petrovski - "True" - (4:55) 98 BPM
from $1.86
Review: Cold Busted is the scene leader when it comes to hip-hop informed instrumentals. This latest release sees two cult producers supply one slick new jam each. The spectaculalry monikerer 80s Casual is first on the stands, rustling up "Fiesta" - which is a rich Balearic shuffle based around some hypnotic classical Spanish guitar samples. Next Yuri Petrovski presents "True" which in theory, with its sampling of Spandau Ballet's pastel -tinged hit of the same name, would be more appropriately attributed to the name 80s Casual - seeing as that was who originally danced to the tune nback in '83. A sunkissed classic nonetheless though.

Review: Craig Charles is many things to many people - to some he's Dave Lister in Red Dwarf, to others he is the guy with class A's and jazz mags in the back of a taxi and to others he's one of the UK's finest soul DJs. Here we find him in the latter role, thankfully, introducing us to his fourth annual Funk & Soul Club collection. This time he presents 19 soulful gems. Highlights include the Chaka Khan-style "Family Tree" by Kylie Auldist, The Traffic's bombastic and brassy cover of "White Lines" and the effervescent 1960s soul homage "Next Time" by The Tibbs.

Review: The bubbly JalapeNo imprint has been the main home to Kraak & Smaak's house-minded output over the years - although a few outings on the Spinnin' labels certainly help to cement their status as veritable nu-disco specialists - and this extensive new album Juicy Fruit feels like a natural place for them to be right now. We're talking about thirteen classy disco-leaning house gems here, all of them perfectly suitable for dancefloor domination and Saturday evening seduction. This is for the dancers, the swingers and party starters; it feels like the sort of ticket you don't get too often, an energetic and fun collection of great dance SONGS. Indulge.

Review: Finally here we have the much-awaited fourth album, Crown Posada, from the proudly gritty Geordie soul act Smoove & Turrell, who combine hard hitting social commentary with dancefloor thrilling vintage style soul and funk. They're' teased us with attention grabbing singles such as Glue Bag Flags, Fight On and you Could've Been A Lady. However there a more, deeper and richer delights to be had across the further nine tracks featured here including the Chic-influenced disco boogie of "No Point In Trying" and the edgy electro-funk "50 Days Of Winter". A seriously smart long player.

Review: When you consider the sheer quality and breadth of their output, there really isn't another label like Wah Wah 45s. Adam Schrimshire's pioneering imprint reaches its 18th birthday this year, and he's kicking off celebrations straight away with the launch of this new collection featuring a whopping 33 remixes of mighty back catalogue tunes. Highlights include the bleepy, warped hip-hop of "Ooh (J-Felix remix)" by Paper Tiger, the doomy, the brooding witch-soul of Goth-Trad's remix of Lea Lea's "Black Or White" and Ashley Beedle's deep and silky smooth "Return To The Factory" remix of "Glory" by Stac. Happy birthday fellas!

Review: We've lost count of the number of volumes in the Good Times series, but it must have easily reached double figures. This instalment, previously unreleased digitally, first appeared on long-departed rave imprint React back in 2003. If you missed out first time around, it's well worth checking. Unlike later volumes, which seemed to try and tick far too many boxes musically, Good Times 3 pretty much sticks to gorgeously sunny, soulful flavours. That means a delightful, party-friendly selection that touches on vintage funk, soul, disco, boogie, US garage (remember that?), ska, reggae, classic hip-hop (the boom-bap brilliance of Main Source) and, erm, Jamiroquai. Delightfully, there are plenty of classics to plug the gaps in your collection, but also a wealth of lesser-known nuggets.

Review: The Sound Exhibitions label is known for its Afro Dub Series and, as you'd imagine, that's all about African-inspired funk and disco. However, TJ Edit and Phil Disco offer something a little different with this latest compilation comprised of the duo's best tune from the summer of 2016. There's house, disco and much more in here, both from TJ Edit and Phil Disco; the former is primarily in a disco-house mood fuelled by samples and seductive slapbass, while the latter delves more into the boogie sound, and together this makes for a fine release, indeed.

Review: Greek disco producer Timewarp teams up with an anonymous pal from funk blog extraordinaire, The Zuzu Club, for this compilation that's exclusively about 'great and fresh' new music. Although there's no theme they do look across the water to the Caribbean for some inspiration on the likes of the laid back reggae lament of "Theory Of Revolution" and the smooth dancehall grooves of "Baby Got Me Good". Elsewhere we encounter vintage electro-swing on Pavlov's "Moving Next Door", retro lounge-rock on "Jesu" By Loopez and even some good old big beat on "Jungle Boogie" by Chinese Man.

Review: When music fanatic Deano Sounds found himself coming of age during the 'post record industry era', he decided to go ahead and form a label anyway. That was in 2010 and now seven years later he is still going strong, with an equally strong roster to boot. Following on from Tropical Hustle Disco and Brazilian Boogie comps, we now have something even more special - the return of Nigerian disco-funk band SJOB Movement's 1977 album Friendship Train. Reissued with help from Uchenna Ikonne, the album features six original tracks that fuse Afro-beat with analogue synths. There's also a cool remix of "Love Affair" too!

Review: Africa Seven continue their rich vein of releases this year with an indepth exploration of the Tala A.M. discography. Those unfamiliar with the Cameroonian's story will be shaken by the adversity he lived through before going on to enjoy a successful music career; blindness and the death of both parents afflicted him as a child. However Tala Andre Marie's love of music was his guiding light, as was Cameroonian icon Manu Dibango who helped him relocate to Paris and thus began a recording career consisting of no less than 13 albums! African Funk Experimentals 1975 To 1978 sees Africa Seven dip into the Tala AM archives for a ten track presentation of his funkiest cuts during the early years of recording for the Fiesta label. "Hot Koki" is a particular treat, whilst disco selectors will love "Sugar Lump".

Review: Italian duo Nu Guinea has previously proved adept at creating humid, sultry deep house and tropical-infused electronics. Here, they focus a little more on the latter with a concept album based around the distinctive Afrobeat rhythms of legendary drummer Tony Allen. With his blessing, and that of the Comet label on which he's been releasing since the 1980s, the Early Sounds Recordings pair has cut-up and re-constructed Allen's drums, combining them with their own steamy electronics, vintage synthesizer lines and classic drum machines. It's an intoxicating and hugely entertaining blend that sits somewhere between their previous outings, Danny Wolfers' material under the Nacho Patrol guise, and the dreamy late '80s/early '90s work of forgotten Italian producer Mr Marvin.
