Posted in Magazine, News | No Comments »

“Still Loving You”, by Twilight, was originally released in 1981. Housed in a low-fi generic album cover, this very polished, professionally produced record sounds like it was made by a super talented band. Strains of Earth Wind and Fire, George Duke and Roy Ayers, flow through a collection of tunes that effortlessly blend soul, disco, […]

Volume 8 of our ongoing Luv N’Haight Edit Series is our biggest one yet! Featuring another helping of Kon with co-headliner Ohmega Watts, taking turns remixing and reimagining another Twilight classic.

Supplied with the original stems culled from master tapes provided by Twilight’s own Lawrence Ross, Kon’s remix transforms the original into a mid-tempo boogie-house jam. The deep, minimal intro gives way to a swinging groove with the chorus interspersed in perfectly to sync with the tune. Also included is a dub version that’s a bit more stripped down giving the groove a bit more room to stretch out.

Ohmega Watts’ title for his remix is apropos as it’s the type of song to get a house party jumping. With a classic 4 on the floor house beat accompanied by a groovy driving bassline, it’s definitely guaranteed to shake your hips and move your feet! Available from 24.07.2015

Turner Brothers – Luv’n’Haight Edit Series Vol.6
Thursday, October 31st, 2013 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Turner Brothers – Luv’n’Haight Edit Series Vol.6

Image: 1584517 The sixth volume in our Luv N’Haight Edit Series featuring 2 hard-hitting tracks from Turner Brothers is a throwback to the classic edits sound courtesy of Sun Sound Records owner, edit master and renowned record collector Paolo Scotti. With several recent edits under his belt including classics by Touch of Class, Joe Thomas, and Ultrafunk as well as a compilation of Rare Disco and Soul from his Sun Sound Records label imprint based in Italy, the time was right to tap him as the next producer for our ongoing series of edits from the Luv N’Haight catalog.
Running In The Rain lends itself perfectly to Paolo’s aesthetic giving the amazing groove of the original room to breathe, focusing on the luscious driving rhythm and killer horns, taking the original that clocks in at just under 4 minutes and stretching it out almost hitting the 5 1/2 minute mark. His treatment of Cause
I Love You is another example of “less is more” as the intro is spaced out as if to perfectly sync with the DJ as he drops the track allowing for a seamless transition. Paolo takes an already perfect track and gives the dancefloor and the listener an additional treat with an extended edit over 7 minutes long!

A1.Running In The Rain (Sun Sound re-edit by Paolo Scotti & Giacomo Silvestri) – Turner Bros. – 5:22

Posted in Features, Magazine | Comments Off on Eugene Blacknell

Oakland guitar ace Eugene Blacknell released multiple singles that ranged in style from raw R&B to power house funk. His musical career stretched from the early 1960s when as a talented and sharp dressed kid, he would become the youngest musician from the Bay Area to play the Apollo in New York, to the end of the 1980s when he died too young.

During that time he established himself as an East Bay original, an entrepreneur, and an activist. His ability to cross-over from R&B to blues, funk and soul put him at head of the Bay Area scene and he was often compared to the likes of Albert and BB King. His business dealings were inspirational. His band were able to break into new scenes and live circuits, and he helped improve standards of pay for African American musicians in the Bay Area. With so many accomplishments it’s an irony of fate that he died before releasing an album despite having recorded enough material for several …

Posted in Features, Magazine | Comments Off on Malone & Barnes

Singer and songwriter Johnny Malone met saxophonist and flautist Allan Barnes while they were students at Howard University in Washington DC in the 1960’s. In addition to being under the tutelage of Donald Byrd who was head of Jazz Studies, they were classmates with future stars like Donny Hathaway, Leroy Hutson, and Angela Winbush. Barnes was already a member of the hugely popular soul jazz pioneers The Blackbyrds.

“We were at crest of the wave of early jazz fusion, plus the culture at Howard was a little outside of the box. We had great teachers – it was an ideal place to study and learn,” explains Barnes.

When the two friends formed Malone & Barnes & Spontaneous Simplicity (named after the tune by Sun-Ra, whose band Barnes regularly appeared with when in Washington, DC) the collaboration yielded “Freedom Serenade“, an album of super spacey and spiritual jazz funk. Released in limited quantity in 1976, on their Humpin’ International label, this rare and underground album bears the hallmarks of contemporaries like the Blackbyrds, the Mizell Brothers and DC neighbors Oneness of Ju-Ju. “Warp Ten” features a solo battle between Barnes and trumpeter Curtis Pope (of the Isley Bros and Wilson Pickett bands). Songs such as “Moonstruck” and “Journey to the Stars” are DJ-friendly futuristic funk tracks with a sci-fi flavored nod to peers Funkadelic and Parliament …

Darondo

Posted in Features, Magazine | Comments Off on Darondo

A mystery to most, Darondo records are high on the wants-lists of many collectors. He is spoken about in hushed-tones by other Bay Area musicians. Back in the day he was seen cruising around town in a white Rolls Royce (with a “Darondo” license plate). He opened-up for James Brown and lived a colorful lifestyle hanging with folks like the notorious Fillmore Slim. Take a listen to these tracks, released for the first time together on an album, and you may agree that he could have been the next Al Green or Sly Stone. But about 25 years ago Darondo disappeared.

Releasing three singles in the early 1970s (as Darondo, Darondo Pulliam, or the miss-spelled Dorando) he mixed low-rider soul with blues and r’n’b. He delivered in a variety of styles from the socially-charged “Let My People Go” to the sexually-driven funk of “Legs”. All three singles were recorded in the Bay Area, and both sides of each of the singles are fantastic productions …

Sweet Maya – Sweet Maya
Friday, December 9th, 2016 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Sweet Maya – Sweet Maya

Image: 1607252 Luv N’Haight is proud to re-issue Sweet Maya’s self-titled album. A midwest jazz-funk classic with elements of folk, jazz, soul, funk and rock combining to create a heady blend reminiscent of ‘70s work by French band Cortex and songwriting maestro Terry Callier.
The music of Sweet Maya is an extension of each member. As individuals they bring together diverse backgrounds, as a group they blend it all into a sound that is exciting and full of warmth. The six-piece group of multi-talented instrumentalists has five lead singers, four songwriters and four arrangers. The music that grows from the contact of such persons is evidenced in this album. It is Sweet Maya (the Illusion) that flows
through and shapes the many idioms of their music. It is Rob Hayes, Tom Davis, Janice Lakers, John Chamberlin, and Mark Bowen who convey the experience. (excerpt taken from original LP liner notes)

Hokis Pokis – The Magic Of Hokis Pokis
Thursday, April 17th, 2014 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Hokis Pokis – The Magic Of Hokis Pokis

Image: 1587398 Formed in 1970, Hokis Pokis was a seminal band in the New York disco scene with a handful of underground local hit singles including the highly-sought after “Nowhere” “Find What You’re Looking For” and “City Rhythm”.

Releasing several singles from the mid ‘70s all the way to the ’80s, Luv N’Haight has compiled all of Hokis Pokis’ musical output into an album which also includes 2 previously unreleased tracks. Remixed and remastered digitally from the original master tapes, the versions on the album are elevated from the already amazing originals with a cleaner sound and harder-hitting bottom end, bridging the gap between dancefloor fanatics in disco’s heyday to their modern day counterparts. Never before seen photos along with corresponding liner notes from DJhistory.com’s Bill Brewster are included in the deluxe double-LP package, telling the story of a group of friends that embark on a musical journey that continues to this day. From the beginning of disco’s rise to its inevitable decline, hitting a low point with the “Disco Sucks” movement, to its eventual resurgence in popularity with today’s dance-culture, Hokis Pokis has remained together bonded by friendship first, coupled with a shared musical vision that continues to endure.

Look for Under the Influence of Hokis Pokis album later in the year featuring heavyweight producers Kon, DJ Spun, Citizen Kane, Al Kent, DJ Day and others who all take their turn creating new, original dancefloor classics from the original multi-tracks.

Twilight – You’re In Love (Kon Remix) (Edit Vol.7)

Image: 1586386 01. You’re In Love (Kon Remix) 02. You’re In Love (Kon Dub) /

Volume 7 of our ongoing Luv N’Haight Edit Series is our first on a 7 inch and features heavyweight digger, edit-master and producer Kon with his take on Twilight’s Modern Soul and Boogie classic “You’re In Love”. He stays true to the original but packs a bit more punch into the groove while keeping the focus on the catchy vocals and chorus on the A-side, and doing it Dub-style with minimal vocals and plenty of echo on the flip.

2013 was definitely the year of Kon with a remix released in March via On The Prowl’s Party Mix Vol.7, his “All About You” EP dropping in May on Soul Clap’s newly formed record label and his first solo all-original album “On My Way” released on BBE this past July. In between studio-work, touring in promotion of his new releases and djing parties as one of the world’s most highly sought-after DJ’s, Kon couldn’t pass up the opportunity to add his name to our growing list of venerated producers that have blessed the Luv N’Haight Edit Series with their work. Supplied with the original stems culled from master tapes provided by Twilight’s own Lawrence Ross, Kon takes full-advantage and crafts a classic remix and dub version of the song guaranteed to get any dancefloor jumping.

With a career spanning decades and first brought to prominence as one half of Kon and Amir and their work on the legendary “Off Track” and “On Track” releases as well as remixes of luminary artists Cerrone, Kool And The Gang, Bee Gees, Slave and Chic amongst many others, has allowed him to transcend his moniker as “King Of Nothing”. Counting noted taste makers such as Gilles Peterson, Danny Krivit, John Morales, Jazzanova and Dam Funk as fans of his work, Kon’s prominence is steadily on the rise with it’s apex still unforeseen on the horizon.

Look for another Twilight remix from Kon on a Twilight Remixes release with Ohmega Watts, Twilight Tone and other surprise producers coming in 2014! Available from 28.02.2014

Black Randy – Down At The Laundromat

12” single.
Ubiquity’s founder Michael McFadin spent most of his youth in the burgeoning Southern California punk rock scene. Later when he became a DJ during the
rare groove era there was one record from his past that was a quirky staple in his sets “Down At The Laundry Mat” by Black Randy and The Metro Squad.
“Whenever I play it someone asks me about it and I’ve never grown tired of it” says Michael “so we decided to rerelease it”. Most commonly known for its
inclusion on the single-sided, clear vinyl Yes LA compilation that was released on the Dangerhouse label and also included songs by The Germs, The
Bags and others. The flip “Give It Up Or Turn It Loose” was on the only album by Black Randy and The Metro Squad “Pass The Dust, I Think I’m Bowie” and is a
freaked out, garagey, ritalin-infused version of this JB classic!

Geater Davis – Lost Soul
Thursday, April 11th, 2013 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Geater Davis – Lost Soul

Image: 1579107 Luv N’Haight presents Lost Soul, a comprehensive collection of material recorded by Geater Davis for the House Of Orange label. The name of the album is an accurate description of the life and career of the legendary blues and soul singer who passed away at age 38 while on the verge of breaking through.
Geater Davis’ career began in Texas but with the success of a few regional hits he was able to go to Shreveport and all throughout the South. He was always on the move looking for a better chance, keeping his career alive and the “big break” so many artists look for. Just weeks after moving to Dallas he suffered a heart attack and a few weeks later died from heart failure on the day he was supposed to record a session. Although he didn’t find the success he sought while he was alive, his legacy is secure as one of the finest blues-soul singers of the 1970’s. Lost Soul features the highly sought after single “My Love Is So Strong For You” along with all the tracks from his “Sweet Womans Love” album and a few other singles that he cut for Allen Orange’s House Of Orange label including different versions of his classics “Cold Love” and “I’ll Play The Blues For You.”

On “New Tones” home-made Detroit electronics and huge horn sections blast big band funk and riotous jazz. NOMO’s roots are firmly planted in the fertile soil of African polyrhythm and American free jazz, and bandleader Elliot Bergman’s tracks draw inspiration from cultures and generations wildly different than his home setting. In many ways (at least geographically and sonically) NOMO are a distant relative of the Tribe collective. Undoubtedly they carry the spirit of the legendary Detroit-label’s creative output.

NOMO were signed to Ubiquity through interest in their little-known self-titled debut album, and on the back of an onslaught of persuasive emails from their fans (including Sam Valenti IV of Ghostly International fame) that the band puts on a must-see live show. Raw propulsive rhythms and infectious melodies carry a horn section and multilayered percussion that is part Tom Ze, M.I.A., Philip Cohran, P-Funk, Antibalas, Tortoise and Harry Partch. Enigmatic Detroit producer Warren Defever was charged with capturing the band’s live energy, and he shaped the sounds for maximum impact. “New Tones” is a full-color, spiritual soundscape that marries the exotic with the gritty. NOMO’s “New Tones” moves beyond the ecstatic to approach Bergman’s vision of a transcendent, elemental sound—one that aims to move both bodies and spirits …

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 …
