Juicy Joints' 2009 classic "Too Late" gets a welcome digital release, with the wobbly bassline action of the original still sounding great today. Fans of UK Funky are well represented with Konga Kings' remix, which softens the bass, but keeps things flexing with rolling snares, whilst NB Funky's version adds a dramatic touch with its strings and horns. Big Ang's remix meanwhile takes things in more of a house direction, with and 80s pads and piano combining with big room production values, but perhaps the best of the bunch is DJ Lapell's remix, which keeps things moving at a fast pace, with razor sharp house piano and euphoric melodies combining to create a sophisticated garage roller.
A sweet reissue of an underground classic from 1982 here, bootlegged badly in recent years, but Isle of Jura does it right with this remaster by Matt Colton. Q were a one hit wonder (if you could even call them that!), responsible for "The Voice Of Q". Comprised of American producers Bruce Weeden & Michael Forte with their revolving cast of musicians - this electro funk/disco project is finally getting paid its dues. Deep, funked-up and spacey disco, complete with vocoder - it almost seems familiar! A true spirit of the times. Then features a previously unreleased track, "Keep It Strong" (unreleased dub edit) which is a balearic tinged number that's equally as good.
