Review: Ever since they recruited powerhouse vocalist 'Mighty" May Johnston for some tracks on second album, Look Out, Watch Out, back in 2011, this raw and retro Aussie soul band have been slowly building up to this, their first proper album with Johnston at the helm. "Come Alive!" certainly does just that, boasting ten effervescent '60s / '70s indebted gems that don't mess about. We've been recently introduced to two tracks here ("Done Me Wrong", "Souls Come Alive") via a teaser single and boy, have they set the tone for this accomplished record by a group at their musical peak. Bravo.

Review: The Rev's back! Parisian edit magician serves up four revised soul excursions for modern audiences to experience the second time around and in true style. On the first side he takes the knife to a couple of Gladys Knight classics, namely the feel-good "Don't Make Me Run Away" and the uplifting "Love Gives You The Power". On the flip it's George Duke's turn, "Say That You Will" is you all know is a sultry deep soul number for lovers while "Party Down" is definitely for night people; this one is pitched up for optimum dancefloor effectiveness too!

Review: Athens Of The North are crate diggers extraordinaire, but here they have really outdone themselves. An obscure Floridian disco/funk act from the late 70s, Fruit barely even registered on the music world at the time. Only their solitary 1978 single "Say It" ever got released and it was only years later that rare as hens teeth copies of it became collector's items. AOTN however, went further though, contacting Cypress Studios and unearthing a whole unreleased album by this forgotten band. Now for the first time ever they present this sizzling ten track trawl through distinctly southern-tinged boogie funk and soul.

Review: Manchester's Gideon Conn is a cult hero due to his geeky leftfield hip-hop poet shtick. Despite often veering dangerously close to being a parody, he won a lot of people over with album Hip Hop Original. Here album track "Crystallised" gets thrust forward as a potential hit single, and with his quirky, affected vocals, light Banghra beats and soothing chorus sung by Yvette Riby Williams, it might just become one. Paper Tiger thankfully decides to concentrate the songwriting elements of the original, turning in a seductive slice of neo soul in the process.

Review: An obscure Canadian/Haitian pianist, Henri-Pierre Noel has seen see his long forgotten albums introduced to many new fans due to a reissue campaign by The Wah Wah 45s label. One More Step was his second LP, originally dating from about 1982. It was re-released a couple of years ago, but now it returns in a deluxe edition format. Our favourites, schmaltzy ballad "Will Come A Day", the frenetic Afro rhythms of "Roller Skate Rhapsody" and the accelerated Eurodisco gem "Funky Spider Dance" are all present and correct, but now there are two lively remixes by French producer The Reflex too!

Review: The Wah Wah 45s label is responsible for rescuing of the work of long forgotten Canadian/Haitian pianist, Henri-Pierre Noel. Both his 1979 debut Piano and its early 80s follow-up One More Step have been rediscovered and repressed by the label, and here we get a selection of cuts from the latter all reworked by the French producer The Reflex. There are four killer reworks here - the pumped up Afro-disco belter, "Funky Spider Dance", the boogie-up clavinet heavy take on "A Fifth Of Beethoven", the ramshackle island grooves of "Back Home...Sweet Home" and toughened up raw funk of "Diskette". Class.

Toxic Love Affair (feat Ivar & Sanguita) - (4:33) 53 BPM
from $2.18
Review: Juicy Fruit is a famous early 80s soul jam by Mtume. It is also the title of the forthcoming album by Dutch trio Kraak & Smaak. Lifted from the LP, "Toxic Love Affair", sees the trio revisit the boy/girl dynamics and the luxuriant synths of the Mtume track. Mere copyists Kraak & Smaak are not however, and although evoking the 80s soul era, this track operates on its own merit. The song features a sultry duet between Ivar & Sanguita over an expertly produced, dreamy slice of chrome plated electro soul. Absolutely essential.

Review: Lack Of Afro has been pouring his shades of worldly funk and nu-soul across the Freestyle catalogue over the last few years, but this time it's his moment to shine with a brand-spanking, sparkly new LP for LOA, putting together everything he's known for under one gorgeous roof. Here, you have twelve scorching slices of upbeat lament, and from "Hello Baby" - a masterful stroke of sunny funk - to "Now I Feel Good", the artist manages to bring back the spirit of the 1970's into a new and contemporary light. Gliding piano keys, powerful vocals, and a kick-ass production surely make Lack Of Afro one of the kings of modern soul.

Review: Here on Neon Dancer Mr Absolutt stays true to his name and goes absolutely pure on his homage to the sound of early RnB dancefloors. "Night Drive" is a hazy blend of What's Love Got To Do With It tropical synths and sultry Princess-esque grooves. Elsewhere "One Love" is fluffy boogie fun, "The Cross" is a twangier Paradise Garage-era raw funk jam and "Champ" is a hiNRG-funk crossover. A refreshing 80s vodka cocktail of an EP (no prizes guessing which brand).

Review: As with much of Athens Of The North's material, original copies of "You've Got A Lot Of Living" are nigh on impossible to find. The record was self-released by Ed "Mr Wigg" Wiley in 1980, on his short-lived Wiglet imprint. Whatever the origins, "You've Got A Lot Of Living" is something of a jazz-funk influenced disco-boogie gem, with party-hearty vocals riding a killer groove that boasts the twin attractions of jaunty Clavinet lines and music box style melodies. The largely instrumental "Part 2" version gives the clav lines a chance to breathe, while also featuring the crunchy guitar riffs more prominently in the mix. Both sides are superb.
