What sets one compilation album apart from the others? What makes a record label special? These are questions that keep us up at night here at Tramp and you are holding in your hands one of our 50 full-length answers. It’s true that within the soul and funk scene rarity and obscurity commands attention but it’s the quality and performance that keeps a selection on heavy rotation. Speaking of Tramp, and in particular of this final volume in the Santa’s Funk & Soul Christmas Party (SF&SCP) compilation trilogy, Sean Delany and Jan Kohlmeyer did an incredible job compiling these tunes. They spared no pains digging up the rarest of the rare, and the best of the best Christmas funk you have (n)ever heard (and which has not been compiled anywhere else). Even with your impeccable music taste and your unlimited record-buying budget you will have a hard time getting your hands on most of these gems. What brings you all the money if something you want is never offered? For us it’s the quality that counts and that’s why you will find such artists as Sam Sweetsinger Bell, Joe Shinall, Cleveland Robinson, and Carol Ford to name a few on this album. Of course the rest of the tunes are no exception either.

It fits like a glove that this third volume of SF&SCP is simultaneously the 50th Tramp Records album released. Since we are proudly independent and are not forced to act in the economic sense, and, like you, are music fanatics and die-hard record collectors, we at Tramp Records are still digging after more than ten hard-working years! It started out just for fun and it’s our fans worldwide that encourage us to keep bringing the heat. As long as there is music out there that has the power to drop our jaws to the floor we will still be here – and, like Santa himself, we will work year-round to continue to deliver our funky Christmas miracles directly to your turntable. Merry Christmas!

Key selling points:
– most of the songs appear on CD/digital for the very first-time
– the vinyl LP comes with a full album download code
– fold-out CD-booklet and vinyl LP contain detailed liner notes and label scans

Joey Negro – Le Freak – Music Inspired By Chic
Friday, September 18th, 2015 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Joey Negro – Le Freak – Music Inspired By Chic

Image: 1599264 Z Records presents ‘Le Freak Music Inspired by Chic – Complied by Joey Negro’ contains fourteen glorious Chic inspired cuts that groove like a Disco train straight from the 70s.

Vinyl
A1 Charanga 76 – Good Times (Como Vamos A Gozar)
A2 Cela – I’m In Love (Joey Negro Edit)

B1 Odyssey – Together
B2 She – Easy Money
B3 Nightlife Unlimited – Lets Do It Again

C1 Van Jones – Not About That (Show Me Some Respect)
C2 Ann Margret – Everybody Needs Somebody Sometimes (Part Two)
C3 Michael Zager Band – Don’t Sneak On Me

D1 Delegation – Heartache No. 9 (Special Remix Version)
D2 C.H.A.D. feat G.G Gibson – Feel The Beat (C’est Si Bon…)

Arguably, Dave Lee aka Joey Negro and his Z Records label are the contemporary go-to Disco label. And it
was only a matter of time that Mr Lee would delve deep into his vinyl vaults and pull a selection of sound-alike
tracks inspired by that late 70s Chic sound.

To date, Chic and their productions have notched-up sales of over 100,000,000, so with that in mind, it comes
at no surprise that their music has inspired others to pick up the bass & lead guitar and emulate that groovy
sound… and that ‘s exactly what this album is all about.

‘Le Freak Music Inspired by Chic – Complied by Joey Negro’ contains fourteen glorious Chic inspired cuts that
groove like a Disco train straight from the 70s.

The Chic production sound must be one of the most distinctive in disco, soul, funk or pop music generally, a
sound that was lent very successfully to Sister Sledge, Diana Ross, Debbie Harry and many more in the late 70s
and early 80s heyday. The much-copied formula has been an inspiration to many producers old and new,
most recently with the world dominating Daft Punk.

Joey Negro is one such producer who has been inspired by the production sound of Rodgers and Edwards
over the years and, until now, there has not been a collection of tracks that were influenced by rather than
produced by Chic.

There are many more artists out there that have drawn inspiration from this sound but this is Joey Negro?s
personal selection of tracks that have the unmistakable groove including one from his own Sunburst Band
project.

Nile Rodgers continues to tour the globe with his Chic live show as well as produce and make guest
appearances on many hit records and he shows no sign of slowing down yet.

Previous ZR/Joey Negro compilations:

Remixed With Love reached No.1 on the Amazon Disco chart

Joey Negro’s name is consistently on a lot of classy music and Remixed With Love is up there with his best. In
total 18 spectacular remixes… A must have. Danny Krivit

Joey Negro is a true aficionado of Italo House as this brilliant compilation-cum-history lesson shows – Mixmag

Given his long-standing dedication to the sound, there could be few more fitting DJs to compile a two-disc set
of 90s House & Garage than Joey Negro. Excellent track list – Juno.co.uk

———————————————————————————————————————————-

The Chic production sound must be one of the most distinctive in disco, soul, funk… or pop music generally.
Back when I was listening to commercial radio as a music-mad teenager in 1979/80, their records were
omnipresent on the airwaves. It seemed that when one of their own songs just dropped out of the hit parade,
it was replaced by a production for another act – be it Diana Ross, Sheila & B. Devotion or Sister Sledge – it was
a constant stream of hits. When I heard songs like Norma Jean’s “High Society” (a solo release from one of
Chic’s singers) blasting out my transistor radio, I knew straight away it was an Edwards & Rogers production,
their style was so instantly recognizable. Firstly the playing and sound of both the guitar and bass was a
giveaway, along with the precise vocal phrasing, rippling piano and discreet string parts. If it was the 12″ mix
then the bass breakdown and slow instrumental build up in the second half of the record was also part of the
blueprint. Generally, Chic songs eschewed ad-libs or long solos, the style is more defined with each instrument
having an exact placing – including the vocals.

Records like “Good Times” and “We Are Family” weren’t just big club hits – yes, they were massive on dance
floors but they were also pop crossovers all around the world. What was noticeable to me back then was
even the rock guys I was friendly with (who generally despised disco) quietly liked Chic and admired their rock
solid playing and grooves. I guess the best music has this universal appeal, from the casual listener who knows
nothing about the fine details of song writing and production right through to the hardcore muso players who
hear and appreciate its intricacies.

Of course, with all this worldwide chart success came a lot of emulators who were inspired by Chic’s stylish
image, immaculately produced records and of course their commercial success. The period we are focusing
on is toward the end of the disco era, so many producers were ditching the faster octave bassline euro disco
style and looking for a new sound that was both club and radio-friendly. I’ve no idea how many records
featured basslines inspired by “Good Times”, it was a game-changing groove, so it’s probably in the 1000s. The
Sugarhill Gang’s “Rapper’s Delight” and Queen’s “Another One Bites The Dust” are maybe the most obvious
examples in terms of commercial success – however, for this compilation, I wanted to dig a bit deeper and
collect together some lesser-known songs which owe at least a modicum of their inspiration to Edwards and
Rogers.

Italy’s producer duo Mario Malavasi and Jaques Fred Petrus were highly influenced by Chic when they
rebranded themselves as Change. Their debut single and UK pop hit “A Lovers’ Holiday”, with its unison group
vocal, was a dead ringer for the Chic sound and even used some of the same N.Y. session players. Throughout
the early ’80s there were many records that utilised a similar style of chord progression, obviously Nile-esque
guitar, or that tight-tracked, clipped and histronic-free female vocal.

It may seem ridiculous now but Chic got quite a rough ride in the press at points, thanks to their instantly
recognizable records’ success, as well as a general hostility towards disco. Personally, I never tired of their
music, but there were comments about “the formula wearing thin” and “it all sounds the same”. I think we can
definitely say the critics have been proved wrong – turn on any Saturday night dance radio show and you’ll no
doubt hear a few of their songs. Disco has become the “Motown” of our current era, the music that unifies
generations at weddings or office parties.

“We Are Family” is up there with the greatest disco albums of all time, containing the title track, “Lost In Music”,
“Thinking of You” and “He’s The Greatest Dancer”. Chic productions continue to be sampled in modern dance
music – I was out at a “Nu-Disco”-type night last year and heard 3 tracks during the evening based around their
songs. Recently, Chic have been back on the road and their legacy as one of the greatest acts of the era has
been cemented.

So onto this compilation, I recently thought it would make a nice and unique album to gather together a few
of the lesser known Chic-influenced songs onto one release. The only track on here Edwards and Rogers were
behind is Odyssey’s “Together”, which is one of their more obscure productions and I thought would be a cool
one to include as many won’t know it. The only actual cover is from Charanga 76 who released an album in
1979 which featured several raw, Latin disco-style Chic reworks, of which their “Good Times” was perhaps the
best – otherwise, the likes of Delegation’s, Van Jones’ and Michael Zager’s are original songs, not pastiches – just
simply great music inspired by Chic’s blueprint.

Hope you enjoy

John Gibbs & The U.S. Steel Orchestra – Steel Funk
Thursday, December 4th, 2014 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on John Gibbs & The U.S. Steel Orchestra – Steel Funk

Image: 1594211 Following the appetizer of the two 12″ singles “Trinidad (Disco Mix)” [EM1128TEP] and “J’Ouvert” [EM1129TEP], we now serve up the main dish, the fine 1977 album Steel Funk by John Gibbs and the Unlimited Sound of Steel Orchestra, a new addition to our ‘EM Steel Pan Series’.

Trinidadian steel-pan player John A. Gibbs studied science at the University of the West Indies in Jamaica where he earned his undergraduate and graduate degrees and formed The Jamaica All Stars Steel Band. This was the start of a dual career in science and music that eventually took him to the United States.

He moved to Philadelphia in the mid-70s and met Philly arranger/producer Louis A. deLise, with whom he collaborated to create a new steel pan music, welding Trinidadian steel music to Philly soul. He researched and advocated a new style of steel pan music, describing the steel pan as an ‘omnivibraphone’ in his 1978 book The Unit Steel Band, in which he combined his scientific and musical backgrounds to illuminate the physics of the steel pan.

Gibbs’ innate musicality comes to the fore on Steel Funk, where he compiles several years of experience with deLise into an appealing Trini-Philly groove union, with the five steel pan players of the Unlimited Sound of Steel Orchestra working in sync with a 30-piece studio orchestra of brass, strings and rhythm. The songs range from Calypso to film theme to pop standard, covers and originals, but Steel Funk is not a chintzy pastiche, it’s a glorious unity. We offer this re-release as ‘the 2014 version’, newly remastered, with improved sound quality, a different track order and
new cover art drawn by Yoshihiro Tsuyama/2Yang.

TRACK LISTING:

Side-A
1. Steel Funk (vocal)
2. Brazil
3. Street Cries
4. Cast Your Fate to the Wind
5. Trinidad & Tobago

Side-B
1. J’Ouvert (TEC 12″ version) *
2. Theme from Shaft
3. Guantanamera

Various – Music For Dancefloors – KPM Music Librar
Thursday, April 18th, 2013 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Various – Music For Dancefloors – KPM Music Librar

Image: 1579367 This April, Strut reissues one of the early releases from its catalogue in a brand new
Deluxe Edition. Music For Dancefloors is a varied journey through the archives of the
fabled and historic KPM Music Library.
The phenomenon of the music library is unique, involving brilliant but anonymous
composers and musicians creating short pieces of music to be made available for
background use in film, television, and radio. The music wasn’t intended to be enjoyed
in a home listening context, and in fact wasn’t available for commercial release at all,
but the sheer quality of the playing and compositions resulted in the music finding an

enthusiastic audience. Original promotional-only vinyl releases from KPM and other
libraries of the 1960s and 70s (generally from print run of only 1,000 copies each) can
now exchange hands for a small fortune.
During its heyday, many pieces recorded through KPM became perennial UK TV
themes – long-running programs like “Grandstand,” “Mastermind” and “ITV News At
Ten.” Tellingly, the KPM boss during this period, Robin Phillips, made a point of setting

the bar high, bringing in the UK’s most talented young composers, arrangers and
session players to the studios to ensure the highest quality music.
The quality has justifiably stood the test of time. In recent years, DJs and collectors
have coveted volumes of the anonymous green label KPM LPs as a source for hard-tofind
grooves and breaks, and KPM has become a well-mined source for hip-hop
producers
and music connoisseurs – Jay-Z, DOOM, Madlib and Guilty Simpson,
Dangermouse
and Action Bronson are among the many who have plundered KPM

grooves.
A KPM piece (Kieth Mansfield’s “Funky Fanfare”) even graces the opening

of
Quentin Tarantino’s film Kill Bill.
Compiled by ex-Jazz Cafe booker and DJ Adrian Gibson and Strut’s Quinton Scott‚
Music For Dancefloors was originally created as a series of albums in the early 2000s
dedicated to mining the archives of the UK’s foremost music libraries. Volumes on
Chappell music and Bosworth would follow in 2001 and 2002. This first installment
mines the KPM reels for some of the most in-demand, funkiest and quirkiest pieces
from the library. Some have become classics in their own right: Alan Parker’s ”That’s
What Friends Are For” featuring Blue Mink’s Madeline Bell on vocals, Alan Hawkshaw’s
stomping hammond groove “Senior Thump” (a precursor to his work as The Mohawks),
and Keith Mansfield’s “Crash Course,” a driving jazz anthem. Elsewhere, the tracklist
is peppered with oddities like Klaus Weiss’ incidental downtempo mood “Morning 1 /
Morning 2” and Nascimbene’s “Witchdoctor,” a short tribal field recording.

This new edition features an exclusive bonus disc, which makes available for the first
time the debut gig by the KPM All-Stars, bringing together many of KPM’s greatest
composers for a unique night at London’s Jazz Cafe on 27th April 2000. A big band
comprising original and contemporary KPM library musicians and writers, including
Alan Hawkshaw, Keith Mansfield and James Clarke, perform the library’s best-loved
TV themes and cult dancefloor classics for the first time anywhere since the original
sessions. Within the set, Alan Hawkshaw plays the live debut of tracks from his album
The Champ by The Mohawks including the fabled title track, as well as “Senior Thump’
and “Landscape.”
Music For Dancefloors: The KPM Music Library (Deluxe version) is released in three
formats: 2CD (original studio recordings and live concert), 2LP featuring the original
studio recordings and 2CD insert of the full CD content, and digital (original studio
recordings and live concert). The album features the original sleeve notes by Charles
Waring (Mojo magazine) alongside extra photos and memorabilia.

KEY POINTS
– Deluxe edition includes a second disc featuring the never before heard live debut
of the KPM All-Stars recorded at the Jazz Cafe In London.
– Compiled by ex-Jazz Cafe booker and DJ Adrian Gibson and Strut’s Quinton Scott
– The album features the original sleeve notes by Charles Waring (Mojo magazine)
alongside extra photos and memorabilia.

Various – Soul Clap Presents: Tempo Dreams Vol.3
Friday, May 1st, 2015 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Various – Soul Clap Presents: Tempo Dreams Vol.3

Image: 1595915 After two critically acclaimed volumes of the producer oriented compilations Tempo Dreams, Brooklyn’s Bastard Jazz Recordings is back with Volume 3 of the beat-centric, forward looking series. For this album, the label has tapped Soul Clap, the Boston bred, international ambassadors of all things funky. Piloting their cosmic mothership all over the globe, Soul Clap have built a cult following worldwide both through their solo endevaors and through their Crew Love brand formed with Brooklyn’s Wolf+Lamb. Staying with the series theme of showcasing new styles, emerging artists and their own peers, Soul Clap has compiled a showcase of all unreleased modern funk, electro soul , and leftfield house music on this compilation sure to make their spiritual guide Dr. Funkenstein aka George Clinton proud.

As in with previous volumes, the artists included come from different places, spaces and times but are tied together by the musical connection running concurrent on the record. Soul Clap’s is certainly represented through their own original track “So Sedated”, a chugging synth heavy ode to the transformational powers of the dancefloor featuring understated vocals by Dayonne Rollins. Crew Love & Dirtybird artist Tanner Ross teams up with Jules Born for “No 1 Else But You”, a late night off-kilter piece of nasty funk, while fellow teammate Navid Izadhi brings a Cali swagger with the smoothed out G-Funk vibes of “Cadillack”. The left coast is further represented with Pasadena’s XL Middleton whose “AntiSlumper” kicks off the album with a throwback boogie vibe, while the mothership-approved production team FSQ delivers the irresistible down & dirty “Break The Funk”. Amsterdam artist Tom Trago comes in tough with the electro porn of “Hard Cash” while NYC is represented fully with disco hero Tom Noble’s “Tanked”, Analog Player’s Society’s wavey “Enter City”, and Greg Paulus’s late night soul vibes on “Everything (Love Down)”.

Tracklisting
1. XL Middleton – Antislumper
2. Tom Trago – Hard Cash (feat. M. Cruzer)

Theo Parrish – Black Jazz Signature
Thursday, January 16th, 2014 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Theo Parrish – Black Jazz Signature

Image: 1582518 Detroit – Chicago – Berlin. Two out of three of those cities call Theo Parrish their own. Arguably one of the world’s most important underground dance music producer/DJs lends his hands to selecting and mixing a set of jazz and funk records licensed from and originally released on the Black Jazz label 1971-1976.
World renowned for his DJ sets, productions, and record label (Sound Signature), this Chicagoraised DJ is near impossible to pigeonhole. Revered by a wide spectrum of dedicated music fanatics, he is known for his edits of artists such as Minnie Ripperton, Roger Troutman, Nightlife Unlimited, as well as his otherworldly DJ sets, and his serious approach to DJ’ing as an art form.
Theo gives special attention to fellow Chicago musicians The Awakening (3 consecutive tracks, 4 total on the mix), one of the best funk/fusion groups that the Black Jazz label released, and whose only output was on that label. The set itself is a masterful “2 turntables all vinyl” execution, a format that Theo is dedicated to – no mp3, no CDr, just the vinyl palette for the true aural experience. Sit back and be drawn into his world, hear things his way.

LP is unmixed.

Tracklist:
1. Doug Carn – Trance Dance
2. Gene Russell – My Favorite Things
