TRACKLIST:
A1. Position Pass Power
B1. Women Are Great
B2. I Need Your Love

In the early years of Fela Kuti’s career, well before he would define the genre of afrobeat, and leave an indelible mark on the musical landscape, he was a struggling trumpet player, seeking to redefine the sound of his current group, the art-jazz ensemble Fela Ransome-Kuti Quintet. As he moved his group towards the thenpopular genre of highlife in 1963, he lost his bassist in the move towards commercial success, but gained the company of Ojo Okeji, who had a sterling reputation both as a bassist and percussionist in groups like Lagos Cool Cats, Rex Williams’ Nigerian Artistes, and Western Toppers Highlife Band, a favorite of Kuti’s. Okeji impressed Kuti with his deft jazziness on the bass, so he was in on the spot, and the Fela Ransome-Kuti Quintet became Koola Lobitos It was Okeji that introduced Kuti to the famed percussionist Tony Allen, (Who would subsequently join Kuti into his greatest years as an artist) as well as conguero Abayomi “Easy” Adio. During his time in Koola Lobitos, Okeji not only contributed deeply melodic, and adeptly rhythmic baselines, but brought his own influence from emerging US soul artists like James Brown & The Famous Flames and Wilson Pickett, heavily pushing Koola Lobitos towards a more soulful direction. This push was often resisted by Kuti, who frequently clashed with Okeji, who formed the group VC 7 as a side-project for that purpose. 1968 proved to be a turning point for the group, as the Nigerian Civil War broke out, and many starving musicians turned to the military for work. Okeji and Adio would leave for the army, while Kuti and Allen kept Koola Lobitos going, where it evolved through different names and iterations and grew into the worldwide afrobeat force that made Kuti an icon during the 70s and 80s. But as Kuti and Allen rose to global recognition, Okeji and Adio would form a new band within the ranks of the 6th Infantry Brigade of the Nigerian Army. Their emblazoned blue jackets earned them the nickname “The Blues”, but Okeji preferred the name Shango,after the Yoruba thunder god.
Shango took the fundamentals of Kuti’s famous afrobeat and brought new layers of guitar and horn arrangements, while often invoking supernatural aesthetics, and maintaining a love for the US soul artists that influenced Okeji so much. Because Shango was an army band however, their records were not readily available to anyone outside of the military so their music, including their eponymous 1974 LP, remained relatively unknown even amongst the people of Nigeria.So many decades later however, Comb & Razor presents it for the first time to a mass audience on vinyl.

It’s 1968 and Fela is in tears.
Fela Kuti, the genius of afrobeat. The champion of the people. Fabled for unflinchingly staring down the barrels of
state tyranny, enduring beatings within an inch of his life from government stormtroopers and then getting on stage
to mock his tormenters in song. Fela the fearless, Fela the invincible. Fela who they call Anikulapo—“he who carries
death in his pocket.” What insurmountable catastrophe could have reduced this formidable titan of African music
to tears?
Ojo Okeji leaving his band, that’s what.

Various – Kev Beadle Presents Best of Inner City Records
Friday, February 5th, 2016 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Various – Kev Beadle Presents Best of Inner City Records

Image: 1601551 Kev Beadle is back on BBE with his new compilation Best Of Inner City Records.

Created by industry legend, MMO Music Group founder and true
godfather of karaoke (but that’s another story) Irv Kratka alongside
producer Eric Kriss, Inner City Records was formed in 1976. During its
decade or so in existence, the label put together a formidable catalogue
of jazz music and was voted Record Label Of The Year in 1979 by the
International Jazz Critics Poll. As well as ‘classic jazz’, the label also
gave a platform to more avant-garde material and dabbled in the
emerging ‘jazz fusion’ sounds of the day. Fondly remembered by jazz
lovers everywhere, the label boasts a particularly fervent fan-base in
London, where many of its releases found favour in the underground
dance clubs of Soho and Convent Garden. Fittingly enough, London DJ
and tastemaker Kev Beadle is the man chosen to put together this very
special compilation of Inner City’s finest moments. Having previously
curated projects for labels such as Blue Note and Cadet, Kev has dug
deep in the crates to emerge with this gem of an album.
From the soaring vocals of the jazz-fusion classic ‘The Other World’ by
Judy Roberts to the irrepressible dance-floor fire of Eddie Jefferson’s
‘Jeannine’, ‘The Best Of Inner City Records’ serves as a wonderful and
eclectic introduction to a label which is rightly remembered with a level of
affection which borders on reverence.

KEY SELLING POINTS
• limited edition double 180g vinyl and premium quality gatefold packaging
• First ever retrospective of the label with full support from the founder Irv Kratka
• Coverage assured on relevant websites & magazines, with full press & radio campaign in key territories

Eddie Hazel – Game, Dames And Guitar Thangs
Friday, January 15th, 2016 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Eddie Hazel – Game, Dames And Guitar Thangs

Image: 1601151 Among guitar aficionados, they don’t come much heavier than acid-drenched enigma Eddie Hazel. A founding father of Funkadelic and responsible for the blazing “Maggot Brain” solo, he released just one album. A concentrated dose of guitar-driven psychedelic soul and loping funk-rock, Game, Dames And Guitar Thangs(1977) was co-produced by George Clinton and features the full Mothership crew. Despite impeccable credentials, the album sank and dropped out of print for years, becoming a sought-after collector’s item for funkateers ever since. Mercifully addressing the dubious legitimacy and quality of previous reissues, Be With Records present a worthy and welcome 180 gram edition, limited to 500 copies.

Possessing a rare ability to be showy whilst maintaining subtlety, Hazel took Jimi Hendrix’s style to his own new level. Here, his fuzz-tinged wah-fuelled guitar licks shimmer across seven brain-bending tracks, showcasing highly inventive virtuoso playing and searing riffs. The LP famously opens with the most soaring, soulful version of “California Dreamin'” you’ve ever heard. Eschewing the structure of The Mamas & The Papas’ hit, Hazel slows the pace, adding a pronounced longing to create a truly emotive reworking. Virtually unrecognizable, Hazel’s exquisite arrangement recalled Hendrix’s rendering of Dylan’s “All Along The Watchtower” and his delicately distorted guitar work propels the track into the stratosphere.

The much-sampled “Frantic Moment” – sumptuous head-nod G-Funk a full 15 years early – is essentially a Parliament song whilst “So Goes The Story” showcases Bootsy Collins’ rubber-band basslines. The incredible, grooved out version of The Beatles’ masterpiece “I Want You (She’s So Heavy)” even manages to evoke early Sabbath. Using the original as a template to jam off, he turns the classic sideways into a monster guitar freakout, tossing off lick after lick with enviable nonchalance. The wild “Physical Love” follows, allowing Hazel and the sizzling Bernie Worrell to strut their stuff before funky instrumental “What About It?” ignites pure dance floor fire.

Eddie Hazel was a pioneering guitar genius, but his troubled lifestyle led to a dearth of recorded material that demonstrated his strengths. It’s a wonderful thing, then, that this lost classic is available on vinyl again. Possibly the finest slice of P-Funk you’ve never heard, it’s a record that will make your brain dance and one every funk fan needs.

Tracklisting
1 California Dreamin’
2 Frantic Moment
3 So Goes The Story
4 I Want You (She’s So Heavy)
5 Physical Love
6 What About It?
7 California Dreamin’ (Reprise) Available from 26.02.2016

Various – Sources: The Sleeping Bag Records Anthology
Tuesday, September 29th, 2015 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Various – Sources: The Sleeping Bag Records Anthology

Image: 1599987 The third Sources package comes from one perhaps one of the most radical of the New York underground independent labels in several different areas – Avant-Garde, Dance, Hip-Hop/Rap and Freestyle, so welcome to the one and only Sleeping Bag Records from New York. Founded in 1981 by the Avante-Garde musician Arthur Russell together with Will Socolov and Juggy Gayles, the label kicked off with the seminal ‘Go Bang!’ by Dinosaur L aka Arthur Russell and quickly established itself with further dancefloor smashes from Class Action, the Jamaica Girls and Konk among others. However undoubtedly one of Sleeping Bag’s most significant signings would turn out to be producer extraordinaire Kurtis Mantronik, who, with rapper MC Tee under the name Mantronix, would produce many of the most cutting-edge Hip-Hip/Rap and Electro classics of the 1980s including ‘Needle To The Groove’, ‘Ladies’, ‘Bassline’ and ‘Who Is It’, all of which are included here as well as producing a brace of international smash hits for Joyce Sims including the electro-funk masterpiece ‘(You Are My) All & All’ and the super-slinky ‘Come Into My Life’. Sleeping Bag would remain at the forefront of dance music culture with numerous other significant dance-floor smashes from the likes of Tricky Tee, Felix, Nocera, Dhar Braxton and Kariya’s brilliant ‘Let Me Love For Tonight’ among many others. In many ways Sleeping Bag exemplified the perfect New York independent label of the 1980s with its shrewd A&R philosophy and an interesting balance of staff who were divided between old music industry veterans together with a brace of young keen new inductees who kept the label close to the streets – a winning combination all round. Out of all the labels featured in the Sources series, Sleeping Bag was the most consistently successful in its era and was undoubtedly the label which was the most hardwired into the sensibilities of the times. This is the most comprehensive anthology available of one of the greatest independent record labels of the 1980s.

Kalabrese – Independent Dancer
Thursday, May 16th, 2013 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Kalabrese – Independent Dancer

Image: 1579531 2007 kam Kalabrese mit seinem Debutalbum “Rumpelzirkus” um die Ecke und hat einigen Staub aufgewirbelt. Nun sind sechs Jahre vergangen. In der Zwischenzeit rockte der Plattenleger alle erdenklichen Kellerlöcher und sorgte für Schweiß an der Decke, betrieb mit seinen Freunden erfolgreich den Klub Zukunft in Zürichs Rotlichtmilieu und bespielte mit seinem Liveprojekt, dem Rumpelorchester, die Klubs und Bühnen dieser Welt. Jetzt ist endlich sein zweites Album “Independent Dancer” da. Man schließt es in die Arme wie einen alten Freund. Vertraut ist so manches: der Blues und der Funk. All die schönen Tänzer und tragischen Helden der Nacht. Das Album überwindet Grenzen, weltliche Tanzmusik paart sich mit dem Klubsound auf sehr natürliche Art und Weise. “Wanzka” ist ein treibender swingender Afro-Groove mit wunderschönen, lyrischen Bläsersätzen von Michael Flury und Benjamin Danech. “Independent Dancer”, das gleichnamige Titelstück, kreist um den Moment, in dem die Tänzerin und die Musik eins werden und den Rest der Welt vergessen. So ist das ganze Album auch eine Liebeserklärung an den Klub. Gegen Ende der Platte wird es nochmals richtig heimelig, wenn Kalabrese in Mundart das Sihltal besingt. “Sihltal” ist eine treibende Disco-Nummer, mit entsprechender Melancholie. Es geht in diesem Lied um mehr als um den Wunsch, Zweisamkeit zu erleben. Es ist die Abkehr von der Dauerberieselung, weg von der computerisierten Flachbildwelt, hin zum Erleben der physischen Kraft der Natur. Mit der Gründung des Labels Rumpelmusig hat der Zürcher Künstler nun eine eigene Plattform für seinen speziellen Sound gefunden. Das neue Sub-Label von Compost Records bildet in Zukunft eine Forschungsstation für außergewöhnliche Tanzmusik, die ihre Protagonisten und Autoren auf der ganzen Welt findet.
