Posted in Magazine, News | Comments Off on Chapter three of Hospital’s “Fast Music” series dives into the deeper levels of drum & bass

Following from the sounds of soul and jungle, chapter three of the “Fast Music” series dives into the deeper levels of drum & bass. “Fast Warehouse Music” draws forty-six tracks from the Hospital Records back-catalogue that rewind the clock to the days of the warehouse raves, swamping concrete jungles with all-surrounding subs from unforgiving sound-systems.

Arp XP & Reza – No Control ft. Kayka / Unknown Feelings
Sunday, November 10th, 2013 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Arp XP & Reza – No Control ft. Kayka / Unknown Feelings

Image: 1585374 Methxx04 takes an international direction and sees the Metalheadz debuts of ArpXP & Reza hailing from Italy and Poland respectively.

”No Control” by Arp XP & Reza featuring Kayka is deep, dark and brooding. Rolling beats and super low sub are laced with Kayka’s haunting vocal to devastating effect. A favourite of Lenzman’s and featuring in many of his sets, this is a highly anticipated release and one that’s guaranteed to get heads nodding and feet moving.

”Unknown Feeling” by Reza is a dubbed out minimal journey into drum and bass. Melancholy chords combine with snippets of vocal and a sparse break, which are all underpinned by the weightiest of basslines. With two tracks of this quality it’s no wonder this release is a double A side.

Collectively the two tracks make for a killer 12” – yet another gem in the much sought after METHXX catalogue Available from 21.10.2013

Keb Darge & Little Edith – Legendary Wild Rockers 3
Thursday, June 27th, 2013 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Keb Darge & Little Edith – Legendary Wild Rockers 3

Image: 1580133 Here we are again, the third volume in a series set to outstrip my “Legendary Deep Funk” comps. We do hope so, as we much prefer the music on these. The funk and soul thing seems much too serious nowadays. Whereas rockin tunes are all about fun. Not to detract from the quality of music on these tunes, but you can clearly here the fun they had recording them.
The majority of the tunes on volume 2 were ultra-rare rockabilly classics. This time we’ve gone for pure fun with a few deeper sounding rarities thrown in to add a hint of diversity. Dj’ing is also much more fun for us now as this music generates happiness in the crowd too. The old northern soul days of “drowning in a sea of my own despair” have been replaced with “having a ball”. That seems the condition we left the UK in too, with lots of younger club goers having a ball to the likes of Johnny Burnette or Charlie Feathers.
Japan is already in the grip of Rockabilly fever, but we have our work cut out in other countries over here in South East Asia. Noel Coward once said “funny how powerful cheap music is”, and Joseph Goebbels would have been proud of the way that mass marketing of shite works
here. Still give us a few years and we will save them from a life of pish music. Already little pockets of resistance are breaking out. A bit like the UK ten years ago then ??

BIO
The legendary out-spoken Scotsman has been around the Northern soul & funk scene since the start and began his career as a dancer. As soon as he had enough money together he started collecting and buying Northern Soul in the UK, during regular trips to the US and was starting to play around the Wigan area at the heyday of The Casino. By 1981 he had gained a respectful reputation as a DJ.
He moved to London at the age of 22 and decided to start living a normal life and quit DJ’ing, but was quickly playing Northern-soul again due to heavy demand by old Wigan promoters. He brought the scene to London and drew the Northern punters that had moved to London after
the Wigan scene dissolved. After a few years, the Northern scene faded, Keb sold his music collection but he still had a loft filled with ‘junk’ music (according to himself) that he had picked up in the states that was to-be classified as “Deep Funk” later on.
So in 1989 house music arrived in the UK, and Keb decided to play the funk grooves after a trip to Japan. He managed to get a regular night at an acid-jazz club called ‘The Wagclub’ and he finished there after a period. And around 1992/93 he met fellow collector Snowboy on the first funk-only night in London called ‘Deep Funk’, named by Keb (that he later used as a name to describe the sound) but arranged by the owners of the club (Club Ormonds). After a while Snowboy and Keb wanted to push the funk sound further and they decided to start their own
night in an old restaurant. The nights failed due to the domination of house and shut down after a few months.
In 1996 BBE and Keb Darge teamed up to start releasing the now infamous Deep Funk and Funk Spectrum series that spawned a whole host of imitators.

Today he holds two weekly spots at the club (Legendary Deep Funk –Fridays / Lost & Found –Saturdays, where he focuses on his current passion – underground 50’s music), travelling around the world DJ’ing, and running the label Kay Dee Records with Kenny Dope. He has achieved legendary status by far with a 40’s to 70’s musical knowledge second to none that is perfectly reflected on his BBE compilations.

Holy moly, the year 2005 is almost over. And so many changes happened we can’t even remember. Most recently we had to congratulate Mrs. Merkel for becoming the first female chancellor of Germany, but honestly nobody really cared. As always the much more important news came from overseas. Have you heard that our beloved newlyweds Jessica and Nick split up after they had stolen the hearts of audiences everywhere? And Britney sold Kevin’s Ferrari. Oh boy…But through all these times of melancholy one thing will remain the same and stay forever, and that’s our pure love for music.

So in good ol’ tradition we asked around what Groove Attack’s employees have been listening to in 2005. Read on ‘cuz this list is for you …

Nick Wisdom – Intimate Strangers EP

Image: 1615543 After making waves a few years back via his Potatohead People project
(with AstroLogical) and co-producing Illa J’s critically acclaimed self titled
LP, Vancouver based playboy & producer Nick Wisdom steps out from
behind the boards to deliver his first solo release for Bastard Jazz.
The “Intimate Strangers” EP mines deep into Nick’s proclivities for
disco, hip-hop, and house flavours. “Good Times” kicks things off with a
snapping four on the floor, deep Rhodes chords and a rollicking bassline
and vocals courtesy of Mr. Wisdom himself. “Feelin’ Alright” heads into
outerspace disco territory with cosmic synths, walking bass, and sultry
vocals courtesy of Reva Devito (HW&W, Kaytranada). On the flipside
“Don’t Tell” brings in some 80s boogie vibes with downlow vocals from
San Francisco’s K-Maxx, while “Rock The Cash Bar” is an instrumental
party rocking hip-hop jam sounding like a modern day Showbiz & AG.

Wildstyle Breakbeats – Razor Cut
Saturday, July 22nd, 2017 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Wildstyle Breakbeats – Razor Cut

Image: 1611066 Side A features the Wildstyle break “Razor Cut” / Side B features unique etchings with different Wild Style graphics.

Charlie Ahearn’s 1983 film Wild Style holds a place in
both music and cinematic history as one of the first
examples of a hip-hop film. Since its original release it has
been widely praised for its hybrid approach as both a
narrative musical and a documentary, and as a time
capsule of sorts into the culture of hip-hop during its
infancy in the 1980s. Besides its classic depictions of
MCing, turntablism, graffiti, and breakdancing, the film
also featured now legendary figures of the genres in
acting roles, such as Grandmaster Flash, Fab Five Freddy,
Busy Bee Starski, and many more. Wild Style went on to
garner an immense cult following, portions of the film
itself would be sampled in records by artists like Nas,
Beastie Boys, MF Doom, and more, and would even be
exhibited by museums in Chicago and Boston as part of
programs on the art of the 1980s.
Beyond the film itself however, Wild Style’s soundtrack
has gone down in music history as a crucial piece of
hip-hop handicraft. During a time where the sampling of
records by Queen or Kool & The Gang was commonplace
in the hip-hop scene, Ahearn took a different route in
soundtracking his film, calling upon seasoned musicians
like Chris Stein of Blondie and R&B session drummer
Lenny Ferraro to produce an entirely original set of
lyricless groove, which would be sampled into true
hip-hop instrumental tracks by turntablist Grand Wizzard
Theodore. The mystery and intrigue surrounding the
breaks became the stuff of hip-hop legend, and a treasure
trove for crate-diggers and vinyl enthusiasts.
In association with premium reissue label Get On Down,
world-renowned DJ Kenny Dope, a longtime fan of the
breaks that made up Wild Style’s soundtrack, re-edited
the tracks into full-length cuts in 2014. KayDee now
presents the singles individually for the first time ever.
Each 7″ is a piece of hip-hop history, as some of the most
highly regarded and sought-after instrumental beats of all
time, from one of the most important music
films of all time. Available from 18.08.2017

Various – Inner Peace (Rare Spiritual Funk & Jazz Gems)
Friday, June 30th, 2017 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Various – Inner Peace (Rare Spiritual Funk & Jazz Gems)

Image: 1609761 WEWANTSOUNDS are back with a superb selection of Spiritual Jazz and Funk grooves from legendary Producer BOB SHAD’s Mainstream Records catalogue. Many sought-after tracks here have never been reissued and will delight all the crate diggers worldwide.

Bob Shad was one of the greatest music producers of the 20th century, having worked with all the music giants you can think of, from Charlie Parker and Dizzy Gillespie to Sarah Vaughan, Lightnin’ Hopkins, The Platters and Janis Joplin to name just a few. “Bobby Shad was a legend in our family” says his grandson Judd Apatow who, together with his sister Mia, still looks after Shad’s back catalogue, Mainstream Records.
Like his peers, jazz producers Creed Taylor and Bob Thiele, Shad went independent in the 60s and by the early 70s, he was producing a string of superb albums mixing Spiritual Jazz with Funk and Soul. These albums are now being rediscovered by new generation of Soul and Jazz lovers hooked on the music of Kamasi Washington and Shabaka Hutchings.
Recorded between 1971 and 73,  the Fender-Rhodes-drenched tracks on INNER PEACE showcase Shad’s unique Deep Jazz sound. They feature such revered musicians as Harold Land, Roy Haynes and Frank Foster, together with a younger generation of talented musicians led by Buddy Terry, Dave Hubbard and LaMont Johnson.
Here they are accompanied by the cream of 70s jazz session musicians including Bernard Purdie, Buster Williams, Eddie Henderson, Mtume, Stanley Clarke, and Cecil Bridgewater.
The Mainstream catalogue has been sampled by a long list of revered DJs and Hip Hop producers over the years. Roy Haynes’ ‘Senyah’ was sampled by De La Soul on ‘Pony Ride’ and Shelly Manne’s short outro, ‘Infinity’ forms the unmissable backbone of Jeru The Damaja’s all-time Hip Hop classic, ‘Come Clean’. A fitting tribute to the supreme sound of producer Bob Shad.
Wewantsounds will start a reissue program of original Mainstream albums with bonus material and rare photos from the vaults. Look out for more

Q u o t e s

“One of the 50 coolest records ever made” (Rolling Stone)

“Their message? The Unforgotten suffering of their Ancestors as they toiled, in blood sweat and tears only to perish. Their jubilation ? The Realisation that for this inhuman act, someday, Babylon will pay” (Joe Gibbs)

“There has been no other artist in history of reggae that has written so much upliftings songs using only major chord progressions…” (David Hinds / Steel Pulse)

“Culture has made his mark. It was a good mark, a firm mark. When people say reggae music, they will always think of Culture. Culture’s musical philosophy will live on” (Winston Rodney / Burning Spear)

“From the time we walked into studio it was a special session…whenever Joseph (Hill) came into Gibbo’s studio it was special. When we play with him it was just like magic” (Sly Dunbar)

“The omniously foreshadowed title track, and its surrounding brethren, carry their redemptive air lightly, the skip of skittering rhythms and humorous asides from the organ framing Culture’s triparite harmony, Hill rough-edged, the backgrounds flirting with the falsetto” (Lenny Kaye)

“This album ranks as one of the greatest reggae albums ever recorded. It still sounds as fresh today as it did when I first heard it” (Mick Hucknall / Simply Red)

The rumour for the Culture song “Two Sevens Clash” and The Clash:
“It was Paul Simenon who suggested calling the band the Clash. The name derives from a reggae track released in Jamaica in 1976 by Culture called “Two Sevens Clash” (quote from the book by Jon Stratton “Jewish Identity In Western Pop Culture” / chapter “Bernie Rhodes and Displaced Apocalypse”)

Bob Marley & The Wailers – Lively Up Yourself (2LP+MP3)
Friday, April 7th, 2017 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Bob Marley & The Wailers – Lively Up Yourself (2LP+MP3)

Image: 1609244 This superbly crafted Bob Marley set (1CD/2LP) compiled and annotated by French journalist Vincent Tarrière, chronicles the story behind this legendary article “The Wild Side of Paradise” published by Rolling Stone Magasine in 1973 through the memories of photographer Arthur Gorson and features a handpicked selection of Bob Marley’s best songs, recorded at his creative peak, during the late 60s and early 70s, when he was working with producers Bunny Lee, Leslie Kong and Lee Perry.

1973 was a turning point for Jamaican music. Perry Henzell’s highly-acclaimed film “The Harder They Come” had come out the year before and Bob Marley had just signed with Island Records and was about to take the World by storm. In July 1973, Rolling Stone Magazine published “The Wild Side of Paradise”, a major story about Jamaica and its vibrant musical scene written by Michael Thomas with striking photos by Arthur Gorson. The pair had travelled to the island to soak up the atmosphere and immerse themselves in the local music scene. There they met a 28 year old Marley who was about to tour Europe.

“The Wild Side of Paradise”, published by Rolling Stone in July 1973 was a bold move for the magazine. Jamaican music was essentially unknown in the Western World up to that point. “Revolution was in the air and, ten years into independence, Jamaica was on fire” Remembers Gorson. Through connections with Island Records’ Chris Blackwell, Thomas and Gorson managed to spend time with Marley and a series of iconic photos of the artist was taken by Gorson, one of which is on the cover of this album. “Wild Side” was the first major feature focusing on Jamaican music and would help put Reggae on the International map. The article was also the seed of Thomas’ future book “Babylon On A Thin Wire” in collaboration Adrian Boot.

In 1973, Bob Marley was indeed no newcomer on the Jamaican scene. He’d been active since the early 60s and had recorded some of his most creative output accompanied by his group, The Wailers. This selection takes the listener back to Marley’s music from the late 60s to the early 70s when he was at his best, working with such producers as Lee Perry, Bunny Lee or Leslie Kong and labels such as Wail ‘N Soul ‘N, Beverley’s, Upsetter and Tuff Gong. The music is fresh and undiluted, catchy and inspired and shows Marley’s genius at crafting beautiful melodies. The set features several of his early classics such as “Duppy Conqueror” and “Caution”, as well as lesser-known gems such as “Wisdom” and “Long Long Winter” and songs that would find a second life on his Island albums, such as “Trench Town Rock” or “Concrete Jungle”. Roots of a Revolution.

DJ Spinna – 1996 Beat Tape Vol.1
Friday, March 24th, 2017 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on DJ Spinna – 1996 Beat Tape Vol.1

Image: 1609395 Aptly titled, “1996 Beat Tape Vol. 1”, DJ Spinna’s latest instrumental album features 18 original beats all produced on the EMU-SP1200 & Akai S950 circa 1996. With over 25 years in business, the Brooklyn native is tied to nothing short of greatness and a legacy of diverse extensions since his beginnings as a house DJ in the late 80s. Many know Spinna for being in the elite group of seasoned party rockers where his resume includes collaborations with Stevie Wonder, Spike Lee, Michael Jackson & Prince (Soul Slam) tribute parties and several US/international bookings a month. Others regard him as one of house music’s best for his well orchestrated dance tracks that blend jazz, soul & funk, caribbean and latin themes into his trademark, “Intergalactic Soul”.
Producing in the mid 90s with his underground duo, the Jigmastas, Spinna acquired national recognition for remixing Das Efx’s, Microphone Master single. He would gain larger recognition for his classic remix of De La Soul’s, Stakes Iz High single originally produced by the legendary Jay Dee aka J Dilla who became a friend in addition to being a contemporary. After a deal with Rawkus Records and producing some of Eminem’s early official appearances, Spinna achieved placements as a go to beat maker for legends, veterans and new MC’s. Though DJ Spinna has found continued success away from his roots, he has always satisfed his core audience whether producing for Homeboy Sandman, Phonte, The Jigmastas or his own solo projects.”1996 Beat Tape Vol. 1” is a rare peek into his deep archive. Much of the material was sourced directly from aged dat tapes and ?oppy disks from the year 1996. Don’t let the 20 year lapse mislead that these compositions are
primitive to today’s standards. The 18 track fully instrumental LP proves the advanced production techniques and sampling ideas Spinna employed are still ahead of it’s time long before much of the resurgence of 90s revivalist themes from today’s artists. The “1996 beat Tape” is the “Real McCoy”. All music was produced before
computers, before accessible home studios and before instrumental hip-hop was a category. Many of the beats were made with vocalists in mind. Constructed on turntables, the EMU-SP1200 and the Akai S950, historians will appreciate the album cover designed by Joe Buck which depicts intimate photos of Spinna in his studio with the actual gear used to create the album’s contents. This is only the frst volume and the debut venture between Redefnition Records and
Spinna’s own Correct Technique Records. With 2 plus decades of unreleased material, who knows what the future holds, but history shows that when DJ Spinna releases an instrumental album, they sell fast.

Mast – Love And War
Saturday, March 18th, 2017 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Mast – Love And War

Image: 1609335 Alpha Pup Records announces the release of MAST’s second
full length album Love and War_. Love and War_ is a highly
conceptual and deeply personal new work based on jazz trained
multi-instrumentalist MAST aka Tim Conley’s eventful love life
over the last 2 years.
Set up as a three Act Play structure (traditionally the Setup, the
Confrontation and the Resolution) Love and War_ is 17 intense
and unique compositions each ?owing into the next with recurring
musical themes or “characters.” Conley tells the story of (Act 1)
fnding love and the beauty and naivety that comes with exploring
something new, (Act 2) losing that love due to her substance
abuse, deception and Conley coping in unhealthy ways, (Act
3) learning to let go, heal and ultimately fnd a much deeper
lasting love. The tone Conley sets is sometimes sarcastic, other
times vulnerable and intimate, yet always musically intense and
profoundly visual.
Sonically, Love and War_ is mostly instrumental compositions
consisting of rousing electronic elements perfectly intertwined
with live guitar, keyboards, bass and drums. It’s performed and
produced by Conley, along with some of the world’s leading
Instrumentalists and vocalists. Keyboardist / producer Taylor
McFerrin appears hot off the release of his latest on Flying Lotus’
Brainfeeder label. Both LA transplants, Conley and McFerrin have
been friends and musical acquaintances for over 10 years since
their time in NYC and Philly during the early 2000s.
Composing and creating Love and War_ was an efficacious way
for Conley to heal and grow but he was very reluctant to share
such a personal story so transparently. Through this vulnerability,
he hopes that whatever anyone else’s Love and War_ story
happens to be, to learn their own life lessons, fnd the humor in it
and always trust in the most optimistic outcome.

Komiko – Feel Alright
Wednesday, January 11th, 2017 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Komiko – Feel Alright

Image: 1608144 Another stone cold NY club jam from the archives of the legendary SAM records label. ‘Feel alright’ does exactly as the title suggests! Pure early 80’s electronic Disco joy for packed, sweaty dance-floors. Not much is known about Komiko, an undercover studio outfit that featured guest vocals from Carol Williams, Tracey Weber & Vicky D and was produced by the criminally underrated Darryl Payne (who manned the boards for Sinnamon, Sharon Redd, Carol Williams, NV & many more) but it’s okay, as this – their sole release, more than makes up for it! A true Boogie classic indeed ‘Feel alright’ was a huge club record that got spin from the Garage to the streets of London.

If you’re into that sparse, electronic and funky early 80’s Boogie / electro Disco sound then you won’t be disappointed with this one. A guaranteed floor-filler of the highest calibre! Reissued in conjunction with SAM records, New York City. Fully remastered with all original 1981 label artwork intact.

The Black 80s – Heart To Art
Friday, August 5th, 2016 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on The Black 80s – Heart To Art

Image: 1604953 Sonar Kollektiv present Heart To Art the new album from The Black 80’s.

TRACKLISTING:
A1. What You Say Now
A2. Russian Roulette
A3. Trembling
B1. And You Feel Something
B2. Tell Me
C1. Wake Up
C2. Where’s The Money
C3. The Daylight feat. Dominik Marz & Yannick Labbé
D1. To Hang On To
D2. Can You Hear The Music

Everything is just perfect for once. From the ambiguous band name to the cheeky album title and the ten productions at hand everything hits the mark and therewith satisfies the spirit of these times.
The Black 80s come up with probably the best club album by far this year with „Heart To Art“. It’s an album fully equipped with hits designed for the club but also proper songs you want to hear during your workout, in your car, to clean your kitchen to, and so on. „Russian Roulette“ , „And You Feel Something“ and „Trembling“ are three of the songs for example you’d don’t want to play in the background for no particular reason. The basslines are too gripping, the vocals by Franck Julien aka Overnite too emphatic and the pressure set up by the tight productions is simply too assertive to resist. If Hollis P. Monroe wasn’t making music for ages (first release in 1997 for Stickman Records), you could almost get the idea that someone internalized the sound of fellow Montreal based Kaytranada totally and intensified it for the club.
The music of Monroe and Julien has precious little to do with the Eighties. Even “Daylight”, together with Hamburg based Yannick Labbé and Augsburg based Dominik Marz, with its perky synth bassline and the jaunty melody sounds much too much of now and here than of anything resembling something from yesteryear. The spoken word track “Where’s The Money” is a masterpiece of reluctance and of a futuristic deepness current club music lacks most of the time. Only “Wake Up” breaks ranks within the ten album tracks. Almost like a summer anthem-like riddim from Jamaica the tune is the most merry of the oeuvre. “Heart To Art” is one of these unusual albums transporting its very own distinctive sound and a incomparable aesthetic. Something you here rarely, but outmost willingly. Available from 16.09.2016

Various – Hungarian Noir – A Tribute To The Gloomy Sunday
Friday, April 1st, 2016 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Various – Hungarian Noir – A Tribute To The Gloomy Sunday

Image: 1602314 It is the world’s deadliest song, a musical composition so lethal that merely to hear it hummed
may induce suicidal tendencies. It is “Gloomy Sunday”, public menace of such potentially
epidemic proportions the BBC was compelled to ban it for decades. Indeed, if contemporary
news reports and eyewitness accounts are to be believed, no other song comes close to it for
sheer morbidity.
“Helter Skelter”? The Manson murders were horrific, to be sure, but the role of the Beatles’
song in those tragic deaths was incidental at best, and in the end, seven lives were claimed,
the number of fragile souls, meanwhile, to have succumbed to the unrelenting lugubriousness
of “Gloomy Sunday” may number in the hundreds if not the thousands.
“Better By You, Better Than Me”? When played backwards, a US lawsuit alleged, this 1990
Judas Priest song prompts listeners to “do it” and commit suicide. But how deadly can a
song be which must be listened to backwards? “Gloomy Sunday’s” impact is direct and
instantaneous. One need only recall the story of the Roman shop boy who, hearing a beggar
hum it, handed the man his money and jumped from the nearest bridge. Hungarian pianist
and composer Reszo Seress wrote the original music and lyrics for Szomorú Vasárnap –
Gloomy Sunday – in 1933, while heartbroken over the break-up of a romance. Though local
publishers initially rejected the song as too despairing, a new version with less forlorn lyrics
by poet Laszlo Javor became an instant hit – and began claiming innocent lives almost
immediately.
The song’s first victim, it is said, was the woman for whom it was penned. In the wake of
its initial success, Seress’ ex-lover poisoned herself, leaving a suicide note of just two words:
“Gloomy Sunday.” Hers was but the beginning of a wave of “Gloomy Sunday” suicides that
ravaged Budapest in the 1930s. According to a US newspaper report from the time, “Budapest
police have branded the song ‘Gloomy Sunday’ public menace No. 1 and have asked all
musicians and orchestras to cooperate in suppressing it, dispatches said Today.”
No one was immune, the article claimed. “Men, women and children are among the victims.
Two people shot themselves while gypsies played the melancholy notes on violins. Some
killed themselves while listening to it on gramophone records in their homes. Two housemaids
cut their employers’ linens and paintings and then killed themselves after hearing the song
drifting up into the servant‘s hall from dinner parties.”
Seress was never prosecuted for the havoc his song unleashed (though fate may have caught
up with him in 1968, when he leapt to his own death), but he and Javor alone can hardly be
held responsible for “Gloomy Sunday’s” death toll. Like a plague, the song has spread, passed
along by some of the most reckless and reprobate “artists” of our times.
Paul Robeson introduced the English version in 1935. Billie Holiday immortalised it in 1941.
Björk, Ray Charles, Marianne Faithfull, Serge Gainsbourg, Diamanda Galas, Pyotr Leshchenko,
Kronos Quartett – this list of infamy goes on and on. And now we can add to it the
ultimate act of music industry callousness and irresponsibility – the release by Piranha
Records of a collection of 10 new versions of “Gloomy Sunday” from around the world,
plus the Billie Holiday masterpiece and the very Hungarian original for your digitally
remastered listening pleasure.
Go ahead, listen to it if you must. But don’t say you weren’t warned. And should you be
one of the fortunate ones to survive this ordeal, have the decency and good sense not
to recommend it to others. Piranha Records must not be rewarded for their cynicism
and betrayal of the public trust. Above all else, they must be discouraged from releasing
“Gloomy Sunday vol. II”, which our sources say is already in the works.

Strut repress one of the all-time classic compilations of Afro-funk and Afrobeat for 2016, the first volume of the mighty Nigeria 70 series. Originally released in 2001, the album followed the death of Fela Kuti and a renewed interest in original Afrobeat among younger club-goers. Put together over a three-week trip to Lagos, it documented for the first time the explosive era when domestic bands fused traditional highlife and juju with funk, soul, rock and disco.
Alongside two cuts by Fela Kuti, Nigeria 70 shone the spotlight on the incredible musicianship of artists like Segun Bucknor, Joni Haastrup and his Monomono band, Orlando Julius, saxophonist Peter King, “Guitar Boy” Victor Uwaifo, Lijadu Sisters and quirky keyboard wizard William Onyeabor among many others. Spread over 3LPs, the original edition also included a one-hour audio documentary featuring exclusive interviews with many original musicians and industry figures from the
‘70s scene, narrated by Wunmi.
As well as being a valuable document of an under-rated era, Nigeria 70 was one of the first crossover albums to dig deep into the African music archives and effectively market the music to a new online audience hungry for rare grooves and unique dancefloor sounds. Since Nigeria 70, this market has widened hugely with labels like Soundway, Analog Africa and Hot Casa all working tirelessly to document rare African beats.

Image: 1602398 The intelligentsia have been claiming it for quite some time, and now finally, after many petitions, demonstrations and protests, a tiny little record label from Germany has achieved what only Google and “troubleshooter par excellence” Angus MacGyver have ever accomplished: admission into the worldwide dictionary. “To Google” and “to MacGyver” will soon be joined by the newly coined verb “to Tramp”. The term can be decoded as “to seek and find the seemingly hopeless” or “looking for something hidden”, always connected with a positive output.

For several years, gold seekers at the most humble and tiniest record label on earth (however certainly one of the funkiest!) follow their dedicated passion. Their brand new masterwork, Movements 8, focuses on rare privately produced american soul, jazz and funk, and proudly bears the title as the 8th volume in the Movements Series.

It took long to find the original vintage records and master tapes, but it took even longer to find the musicians behind the recordings. It required painstakingly detailed work to get everything together. While other labels’ compilation quality might wane after some years, getting further watered down as the volumes increase, and banking on the success of earlier releases, the Movements series is a positive exception. The people behind this series know how the wind blows, and will stop at nothing to provide music lovers, DJs, and collectors only sweetest fresh breeze of heretofore unheard and uncompiled masterpieces. Songs by Papa Albert French, Thyme, Kay Dennis, Joe Wilson, Ulysses Crockett, John Timmons, and all the fellow campaigners emphasize this statement. The detailed liner notes and unseen photographs complement the whole package. The staff at Tramp always produces albums from their compilation series’ as if it were their last so that each record can be enjoyed in it’s own right. That being said, you can trust that Tramp is already seeking “to Tramp” more gems like these for a 9th volume.

Key selling points:
– most of the songs appear on CD/digital for the very first-time
– the double vinyl LP comes with a full album download code
– 16-page CD-booklet and vinyl LP contain detailed liner notes and unseen pictures

Following successful excursions into rare tropical and island sounds with the ‘Sofrito’
series, ‘Haiti Direct’ and ‘Calypsoul 70’ albums, Strut Records turns its focus to the
Indian Ocean island of Mauritius for a new compilation, ‘Soul Sok Séga’.
Séga first developed as an insular music and dance form after slaves arrived on
Mauritius (then île de France) from East Africa and Madagascar during the 17th
to 19th centuries, using Créole language and rhythms played on the large ravanne
circular drum, the triangle and the maravanne, a box filled with dried seeds.
Séga was essentially frowned upon and marginalised by the Mauritian bourgeois
until the 1950s when singer Ti Frère began to play a more Westernised fusion of
séga. Through Ti Frère and his contemporaries like Serge Lebrasse, the music began
to be popularised during the ‘60s and became fully accepted after the ‘Night Of The
Morne’ event in 1964 as the Créole community asserted ist cultural identity.
‘Soul Sok Séga’ documents the heyday of séga in Mauritius during the 1970s as a new
generation of contemporary artists broke through. Jazz, soul, funk and rock elements
all began to be effortlessly infused into traditional séga folk roots to create some
inspired fusions. A talented new wave of artists including Jean- Claude, Claudio,
Marie Josée and Roger Clency became domestic stars and began to take the music
to international stages for the first time. Meanwhile, cult artists like the James
Brown-influenced Ti L’Afrique, Coulouce and Christophe all enjoyed a more brief
but important moment in the spotlight.
Since this era, séga has now been adopted as the national music of Mauritius and
the original ‘70s music is a revelation for any fans of tropical music and world
sounds. Strut’s album features extensive sleeve notes from long time Mauritian
cultural champion, Percy Yip Tong, including new artist interviews, photos and
original vinyl artwork. The compilation is by DJ duo La Basse Tropicale (Natty Hô
and Konsöle), based in the neighbouring island of La Reunion. All formats (1CD /
2LP / digital) are unmixed, with all tracks never reissued internationally since they
were originally available. An accompanying European tour featuring Ti L’Afrique,
Jean Claude and Claudio with an all-star band of original musicians is planned for
Summer 2016.

KEY POINTS
– first official international compilation documenting séga music from Mauritius
– key artists involved in album and promotion including Ti L’Afrique, Jean Claude
and Claudio
– features exclusive artwork by Lewis Heriz and sleeve notes by respected Mauritian
cultural journalist and promoter, Percy Yip Tong
– strong addition to Strut’s tropical reissue range following the Sofrito series,

legends live tour during 2017

Boca 45 – Dig Eat Beats Repeat
Wednesday, February 25th, 2015 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Boca 45 – Dig Eat Beats Repeat

Image: 1595663 Dig, Eat, Beats, Repeat – four words that sum up an average day in the life of Boca 45. Known as somewhat of a Bristol institution from his early days selling hip hop from behind the counter of the seminal Purple Penguin record shop, his Dynamo Productions pseudonym with Andy Smith (Portishead) and his countless DJ residencies and appearances across the city. More recently he has branched out with the psyche rock/hip hop/pop stylings of the Domino Records-signed Malachai (Zane Lowe’s “Hottest Record In The World”) and the cinematic Dolman project alongside composer Ben Salisbury. It’s safe to say Scott Hendy has worn a few caps in his time.

Returning to his Boca 45 alter-ego, for this – his third album under the name, finds him revisiting his b-boy roots and creating an album almost purely from found sounds, beats & samples. As an avid record collector and well traveled DJ, he has amassed a wealth of sources, be it old school block party rap, rare Latin percussion, progressive rock wigouts or obscure eastern European oddities, it all goes into the mix to create his unique style – steeped in heritage, but looking firmly forward.

Another link in the story is Boca’s affinity with the Big Apple – from early digging trips and gigs there, he has forged a strong bond with the spiritual home of hip hop. So much so, that the only vocalists that appear on the album are NYC based. Having worked with Stephanie McKay on his debut album “Pitch Sounds” (Grand Central Records) she steps up once again to bless “Mr Big Sun”, “Freedom Train” and “Parking Space” – her powerful soul voice perfecting each track and sounding like she’s got a lot more left to prove.

Also featured are Brooklyn MCs The Good People aka Emskee and The Saint. From the block busting “We’re Right Here” (as supported on BBC6 Music by Huey Morgan) to the party starting “People Are You Ready?” their old school flow sits perfectly on Boca’s beats and cements the Bristol to Bronx partnership further.

Other tracks such as “45 Live” and “Kool Herc’s Echo Chamber” show his diverse cut & paste party rockin’ ability, whist “BK Speakeasy” and “Lafayette Afterglow” offer a deeper filmic side to his production.

With a hefty DJ schedule alongside a hefty box of 45s and the skills to match, be sure to catch Boca 45 in a club near you soon!

“…like being rabbit punched in the face with killer tune after killer tune & thats a rare thing nowadays” – Geoff Barrow (Portishead)
“Luxury beats and killer samples – once the needle hits the record you’re hooked!” – Sergio Pizzorno (Kasabian)
“Dope LP! What can I say, I’m a cut and paste kinda guy!” – DJ Yoda
“Deep, heavy beats, fluid funk and sinuous spoken words and rhymes bind this together. Steph McKay’s vocal spots are a highlight for me” – DJ Food (Ninja Tune)
“A beautifully gritty slice of Bristolian hip hop, funk and soul. Good music for good people. The world needs more music like this. I love it.” – Brad Baloo (The Nextmen)
“Great to have Boca back, a good to see his musical relationship with Steph McKay continuing to go from strength to strength bringing some of the highlights of what is a top notch LP” – Dom Servini (Wah Wah 45s)
“Boca 45 sticks to his undisputed formula and delivers only the freshest original breaks combined with the great talents of the Good People and the always amazing Stephanie McKay. Top hitter of this year so far!” – Marc Hype (Dusty Donuts)

1978er (yU & Slimkat) – People Of Today (Colored)
Friday, October 3rd, 2014 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on 1978er (yU & Slimkat) – People Of Today (Colored)

Image: 1592148 Music is an exchange of ideas. This album is something for those
exhausted with the shuck and jive of pop culture, who believe in
the purification rituals offered by hard snares, funky drum kicks,
soul-coughing bass, and deeply rooted vibrations.
Steadfastly infusing their songs with spirituality and positivity,
yU and Slimkat are everymen with preternatural talent. Over the
years, they’ve tirelessly built a rep in the DMV, collaborating on
yU’s The Earn and Before Taxes, which OkayPlayer called “one
of the best hip-hop albums released in the last few years.” In 2009,
yU released In the Ruff as the philosophical heart of super-group
Diamond District, a record hailed by MTV as “arguably the best
hip-hop ever released in D.C.”
Slimkat supplies the beats that make the blood rush to your head.
Named one of the best producers of 2010 by KevinNottingham.
com, he’s dished countless production dimes to the likes of
Muhsinah, Eric Roberson, Diamond District, and more.
The People of Today is a seamless and head-spinning record. It’s
hard-boiled beats and raps laced with wisdom and virtue. The sort
of record that you can sit with today and tomorrow, and any time
you need to be reminded that we’re all in this together.
