Review: Here's a treat for fans of Crazy P's brand of rich, disco-tinged deep house: a return to solo action from founder member Jim Baron (under his now familiar Ron Basejam alias) after a four-year absence. Predictably, he hits the ground running, expertly fusing Italo, disco and baggy deep house influences on opener "When I Hear That Music" (check the Reprise mix, too, for a sparser, chunkier version). The sample-heavy "Kag" is slow, sensual and typically delicious, while fellow Crazy P member Danielle Moore adds her distinctive vocals - ratcheted up a notch in true Prince style - on the killer nu-disco jam "You Know How To Work It". Speaking of Prince, there's more than a little of the Purple One about the synth-laden "The Fire".

Review: Ron Basejam is the alter ego of keyboardist James Baron of Crazy P and Secret Stealth fame. Here he drops his superb full album for Yam Who's ISM label. Fans of Ron include the likes of Gilles Peterson (who put the charismatic ''Into My Life'' on the recent Brownswood Bubblers 5 compilation), DJ Harvey, Dam Funk, The Revenge and Greg Wilson, and it's easy to see why. The album trips through musical genres effortlessly taking elements of the past and fusing them with modern day production techniques. Ron's influences are all represented here, with touches of deep house, disco and melancholic dreamscapes set against jazzual synth funk-fired treatments and vocal sample snippet production. Definitely one to check.

Review: Following Ron Basejam's excellent Deep & Meaningless album comes this extra special remix package, crammed full of goodies from some of the most respected names in disco. As the production brains behind Crazy P, Jim Baron has crafted some sublime midtempo disco boogie beats in his day, and his new Ron Basejam project has been just as rewarding. For this set of mixes, ISM label boss Yam Who teams up with Ashley Beedle to smooth out "For The People, By The People" into a spacey slow-grooving jam, with drums that bring the old-school boogie flavour right up to date.

The Revenge gets the chance to string out the sublime and languid "No Jose" over nine epic minutes, building on a bedrock of shakers and the faintest taste of bass to give a masterclass in minimal arrangements. Crazy P's own Chris Todd takes on "Spirit" and makes the popping bassline (similar to Harvey Mason's "Groovin' You") the focus of the track - working perfectly with the laidback and sultry vocals. His Dubbed Out mix takes the track even deeper, adding superb congas and arranging the track to give it a strong and driving momentum. Killer Whale's Italo mix of "Is The Word" rounds things up perfectly - yet again another perfect midtempo beat with some crackling sine-synths that sparkle over the top. A great companion release to an already much-loved album, the remixes really do justice to the material.

Review: There's a touch of the Clash Of Titans here, with prominent Brooklyn re-edit label Razor N Tape recruiting James Baron (Ron Basejam/Crazy P) for a heavyweight nu-disco release. Baron doesn't disappoint either, delivering three tough disco housers that touch on 80s electro-boogie ("Love Don't Wait"), soulful gospel ("Someday") and loopy, filtered funk ("We Supply").

The Carrington Spirituals - (6:18) 115 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $1.96
Review: Crazy P man Jim Baron once more dons his Ron Basejam alter ego, delivering a strong virtual double A-side for Bristol's Futureboogie Recordings. Opener "Time" not only features some decidedly cosmic spoken word vocals from Vern, but was also co-produced by PBR Streetgang man Bonar Bradberry. In typical Baron fashion, the track is a loose, warm and inviting affair that effortlessly blends live instrumentation (guitars, bass, Clavinet) with a rolling dancefloor groove. "The Carrington Spirituals" is an altogether more urgent affair, and sees the experienced producer offering a typically attractive, horn-heavy take on loopy disco-house.

Review: Nottingham based Ron Basejam is the anagrammed alter-ego of Crazy P co-founder James Baron who creates music with feelings on labels such as Futureboogie and Wolf Music and now for Freerange sister label Delusions Of Grandeur. On the fittingly titled The Sound Of A Feeling EP he serves up the charmingly titled "Shit Wizard" a soulful, nu-disco boogie-down jam. "We Walk To War" in its original form is the kind of lo-slung/slo-mo disco that really floats our boat, but the remix up next by Tee Mango really injects it with some Stevie Wonder style soul-funk that'll help get your shine on. The title track is the deepest and most emotive offering here, with its sublime and hypnotic qualities being pushed along by a tight groove.

Review: Crazy P main man James Baron returns under his Ron Basejam alias, with more liquid nu-disco jams. Started as a casual side project 12 years ago, Baron wanted to 'capture the more diverse and quirky sides of his musical tastes', creating underground music that he incorporates with character, personality and humour. The After The Rain EP sees him return to Bristol institution Futureboogie, for the first time since 2016's "The Carrington Spirituals". Featuring the very soulful and near spiritual title track, the lo-slung funk attack of "The French Exit " and the late night acid express of "Raise" (featuring some vocals reminiscent of the legendary Daryl Pandy) among others - each one is a a sure shot and will light up the dancefloor.

Review: Yam Who?'s ISM label come through with a four track slice of disco centric Futurism, featuring the man Yam himself alongside PBR Streetgang and Ron Basejam. It's the latter who takes the lead with a remix of Alena's "Changes" that sees her sultry vocal teased by a most excellent of analogue synth leads that splurges brilliantly across the crisp mid tempo chug. Yam Who? teams up with vocalist Natasha Watts for the similarly bottom heavy bump of "I'm In Love" which has a certain warehouse appeal to it. Up next, PBR pay respect to the godfather of soul James Brown with the gritty flex of "J2thaB" with the sadly departed Mr Brown strangely sounding at times like he wants to go to Tesco. We always took him for a Waitrose man, but regardless this is probably the track you'll reach for most! Finally Brothers Young do their thing to a Trammps classic, with little more than the bassline retained. Big tip!
