With each Basement Freaks release, the funk just seems to get hotter and hotter! So hot in fact that they needed a label named after the super-hot pepper to handle their forthcoming new album, Time Machine. Here they tease us with two cuts from the playlist. First up, title track "White Hot" rolls with shuffley live drums and guitar licks a plenty, whilst "Walk Away" is an infectious slice of instrumental electronic boogie with more than a hint of p-funk.
Crate digging in the Northern Soul scene is the gift that keeps on giving - an endless quest for rarer and rarer gems. Here Beatnik present a new collection that features nine classic Motown and Northern Soul cuts which have been sensitively retouched by some contemporary talent. Highlights include the celebratory, fizzy soul jam "Soul On Fire" by Shaka Loves You (yes, the one sampled by Beyonce), a Junkie XL-style makeover of Martha & The Vandellas on "Nowhere To Go" and Mak & Mr Bristow's muscled up take on The Rascals - "Olympic Lovin".
