At the close of a marathon year supporting their breakthrough album, Con Todo El Mundo (out now on Night Time Stories), Khruangbin return with an exciting addition – an update on Vince Guaraldi’s timeless “Christmas Time Is Here.”"Growing up the three of us all had very different Christmases,” says bassist Laura Lee. “But we recently discovered we all had the exact same favourite Christmas song. When we realized it, we sat down to play it and it came together instantly. In 15 minutes, we had this recorded. It was like the best Christmas present ever.” With ambling sweetness and a fresh, beat-driven groove, Khruangbin have taken this oft-covered classic and made it wholly their own.

Auf ihrem Debütalbum „On“ zeigen Altin Gün, wiemwundervoll sich traditionelle türkische Folksongs mit Funkrhythmen und einer ordentlichen Portion Psychrock kombinieren lassen: moderner, tanzbarer Sound mit orientalischem Touch. Psychedelic Rock erlebte in den 60er- und 70er Jahren in der Türkei eine echte Hochphase und genoss weltweite Aufmerksamkeit. Nachdem Bassist Jasper Verhulst einst mit Jacco Gardner in Istanbul performte, war er unmittelbar fasziniert vom Sound der Türkei der 70er Jahre.Mit Altin Gün (Dt. Goldener Tag) machte er es sich zur Aufgabe, diesen Sound wiederzubelebenund als er mit seinen Musikerkollegen Ben Rider, Nic Mauskovic (The MauskovicDance Band) und Gino Groeneveld (Jungle By Night) über Facebook auf die beidenSängerinnen Merve Dasdemir und Erdinc Yildiz Ecevit traf, war die Band komplett.Bei Altin Gün werden neben Gitarre, Bass und Schlagzeug auch immer wieder orientalischeInstrumente eingesetzt, mit Wah-Wahs werden Gitarren verzerrt und fuzzy Sounds eingebaut.Durch den frischen Sound und einige westliche musikalische Einflüsse wird der Anadolu Rockaufgefrischt und passt hervoragend in unsere Zeit. Sie singen von Liebe, Tod, Sehnsucht undSchicksal, gepaart mit einer Musik, die uns bekannt vorkommt, aber anders ist. Sowohl mitCoverversionen von Künstlern wie Selda Bacan, Bari Manco oder Erkin Koray alsauch mit eigenen Arrangements türkischer Traditionals wissen Altin Gün zu überzeugen.Sie mischen Ebendiese mit Psychedelia, Funk und Psychrock und erschaffen so einen höchsttanzbaren Genre-Mix, der seinesgleichen sucht.

Reuniting the best session musicians Japan had to offer to make an album that would evoke the atmospheres of South Pacific islands, the kind of places Japanese people spend their vacations in. Pacific (1978) is a treat to the ears; its theme of the southern Pacific ocean and its warm cerulean waters relax its listeners with a fusion of city pop, soft jazz, and that good old 1970’s funk while remaining surprisingly fully instrumental throughout all contributions from artists Haruomi Hosono, Shigeru Suzuki, and Tatsuro Yamashita. A true cult LP and an inspiration for a lot of, so called, “vaporware” music.

* Back on vinyl OFFICIALLY for the first time since 1970* Reissue of this RARE Psychedelic Funk-Rock album* Comes with insert containing exclusive liner notes. In the midst of the musical revolution of 1968, a 24-year old kid named Warren Adams put together an eight-piece band by the name of Purple Image. When most African-American bands in the Cleveland, Ohio area turned to R&B and soul music, Purple Image played mind-bending psychedelic funk rock. The band blasted out a thumping psychedelic sound much like the post-Hendrix black rock of their Detroit counterparts ‘Death’ and ‘Black Merda’.As the band grew in popularity, a first single was recorded and “Marching to a Different Drummer” was released on Map City records. With the help of a popular Cleveland DJ the song became a number one hit and paved the way for public performances at the Cleveland auditorium, where they opened for acts from the likes of Steppenwolf and Aretha Franklin.Wasting no time, the band started the recording of their first (and only) album, the self-titled LP ‘Purple Image’. This obscure album recorded on Map Records in 1970 has since then risen to the status of cult because of its scarcity and the musical orientation.An energetic, powerful blend of acid rock and fusion, frantic Coltrane-ish sax, a blistering amalgam of rock, soul and funk … it sounds best when the volume is cranked! The album at its heaviest moments is as heavy as The Stooges on Fun House…it's hard, mean and direct, and still ultimately groove-based. The band’s unique psychedelic sound is an attestation to the times in which they were immersed, and a reflection of their own reality. This album is an outstanding example of psychedelic rock and funk fusion that shouldn't be missed. Together with their (few) contemporaries the band lay the foundations for future African-American crossover acts such as Fishbone, Bad Brains & Living Colour.Tidal Waves Music now proudly presents the official vinyl reissue of this RARE (original copies tend to go for large amounts on the secondary market) super-heavy 1970 psych-funk album. Now finally back available as a limited vinyl edition (500 copies) complete with the original artwork and exclusive liner notes/pictures provided by Purple Image’s founding member Warren Adams and family.

Limited red double-vinyl, 180g HHV Exclusive. A few albums, a few tours, a live album to immortalize it all, broken-up and reformed line-ups: lots of things can happen in the life of a band over the course of fifteen years.Fifteen years is what Cotonete spent leaving indelible impressions on the barrooms, halls and festivals where they performed. Walls cracked by groove-heavy saturated jazz-funk, halls pyro-engraved by incandescent horn sections, the air heavy with Brazilian humidity, shirts stuck to skin.Though happy to remain far from the recording studio, recent maxi-and EP releases convinced Cotonete to make an LP.Their first album, over fifteen years after their debut.The key was to get as close as possible to the passion and unity that have always characterized their live performances, while remaining precise and focused — and it is with that in mind that the eight Parisian members of the band went to the studio to put Super-Vilains together. With songs precisely written and rehearsed to the point of exhaustion, mastered to such an extent that they could play them in their sleep.Inspired by seventies jazz-funk, Super-Vilains unspools imaginary film reels, brass-heavy and illuminated by a constellation of black and white keys. Visit Africa and South America, zigzag your way through the bustling streets of electrifying cities, suspended by moments of feminine grace. One crosses the virtual, vocal paths of the Guarani-Kaiowa Indians, before forest-devouring bulldozers reduce their existence to mere memory.Cinematic themes that bear the influence of Melik, the man you only see when the lights shine on the mixing board, a man intolerant of excessive deliberation and/or indecision, the man who was able to guide Cotonete to the first album they so richly deserved and that their fans wanted so badly.Time’s passing whims have never had much of a hold on Cotonete. Even if all of its members have always been involved in other projects (Akalé Wubé, Florian Pellissier Quintet, Camarao Orkestra…), they have always remained the same. Therefore, after a maturing process of fifteen years, Super-Vilains deftly reveals the potential for improvement that a first album always stokes.Super-Vilains not only meets expectations. It surpasses them.

A legend in funk circles, the enigmatic producer Soopasoul made his name from a hugely successful debut album 'Twin Stix' released on Jalapeno Records in 2009.Hugely talented both in front of and behind the mixing boards - it was clear throughout this 12 track masterpiece that the record was going to be a future classic. His purist approach to funk and soul instrumentation and aesthetics resonated with DJs, break-dancers, music connoisseurs, critics and casual listeners alike, it was quite simply just good music…Since then he's furthered his legacy by creating a hugely successful edits series and recently returned with some fresh Soopasoul cuts in the shape of 'If It Ain't Funky Back It Up' and 'Pushin Weight'. But as the tenth anniversary of 'Twin Stix' draws near the man has gone back to where he started and delivered some special 7" edits of two of those classic tracks.'Ya Looking Tight' has been a DJ secret weapon for years and now it's been given a tidy little edit that makes it even tastier… Still packing all the funk but also trimming a full minute off the original into a compact arrangement for all of your dancefloor needs.But it doesn't stop there. A standout track on the album and this producer's calling-card - 'Soopasoul Theme' was a beast of a jam weighing in at over six minutes. With its new streamlined and svelte makeover it clocks in at under four and comes complete with a drums outro that's incredibly amenable to DJ mixing.

Genre:Organic Grooves
November 5th, 2018 would have been Charles Bradley’s 70th birthday. In celebration of his extraordinary life, Daptone imprint Dunham Records is proud to announce the release of his fourth and final album, Black Velvet.Black Velvet is a celebration of Charles Bradley, lovingly assembled by his friends and family at Dunham/Daptone Records. Though chronologically the material spans Charles' entire career, this is no anthology, greatest hits or other shallow rehashing of the songs that already made him famous. Rather, this album is a profound exploration through the less-travelled corners of the soulful universe that Charles and his longtime producer, co-writer and friend Tommy "TNT" Brenneck created in the studio together over their decade-long partnership. It features new songs recorded during the sessions from each of his three albums, heard here for the very first time in all their scorching glory: "Can't Fight the Feeling," "Fly Little Girl" and the heart-wrenching single "I Feel a Change", hard core rarities like his funk-bomb duet with LaRose Jackson, "Luv Jones," the psychedelic groover, "(I Hope You Find) The Good Life" and the ever-illusive alternate full band electric version of "Victim of Love", sought-after covers of Nirvana's "Stay Away," Neal Young's "Heart of Gold" and Rodriguez's "Slip Away", and the title track "Black Velvet," a stirring Menahan Street Band instrumental to which Charles was never able to cut a vocal.Charles was truly a transcendent singer who led a remarkable life, overcoming unimaginable adversity to achieve great success and international acclaim very late in his life. What was really special about him and made him different from everybody else in the world was how he understood his pain as a cry for universal love and humanity. He felt that if he loved enough—if we all loved each other enough—we could take away the world’s pain and sadness. That is why he jumped off the stage and literally tried to hug everybody he could. It's why he took such great care of a mother that had abandoned him. It's why he sang and danced like a lunatic. It's why he screamed like an eagle. And that's why we love him.Black Velvet is a celebration of his life, and is destined to join Charles' first three albums alongside the cannon of essential soul records for the ages.The new album is comprised of ten tracks the singer laid down in the years before his death, taken from different recording sessions over the years.

Following up on the smashing success of their debut album “55” and a string of essential 45s, this is the third label to press this staple tune. Three labels, three times, three different B sides. Back in 2008 Bacao Rhythm & Steel Band released its smashing cover of 50 Cent's P.I.M.P. which was long thought to be the original sample for the tune. The Mocambo pressing already hard to come by and fetching top dollar on the internet has become an underground classic. Bacao Rhythm & Steel Band treat the tune to their signature smashing drums and bass heavy production, taking the original loop and turning it into a full composition. Brass and steel pan parts putting it somewhere between reggae, steel funk, and the “Superfly” Soundtrack. Side B is the proper reggae offering from Bacao Rhythm & Steel Band, a cover of the legendary John Holt’s classic “Police In Helicopter”. Another must have two sider, another Big Crown sure shot.

Bill Brown and Al Hall jr met around 1971, they were both in south central L.A and shared the same apartment building, also in the same building was Doug Carn and brownstone singer billy Wilson. These studio sessions were don't at Paramount studios Hollywood where Al Hall jr was working for producer Art Smith a&c music. The main distributor for A&C was Accent records. So the Soul Injections very first single "Stay off the moon" was released via Accent, as was Bill Browns "Bip Bam" The group wasn't that pleased with how Accent handle the releases so Bill took it upon himself to set up his own label called Brownstone records. Many musicians were called in for studio sessions these included Doug Carn, organ; Kirk Lightsey, keyboards; Mel Bolton, guitars; Mel Lee, drums; Al Hall jr (trombones), Willaim 'Bill'Henderson strings. The label was met with some confrontation from other Hollywood labels and many of the Brownstone releases were told not to hit the shops by Mafia run labels. Later around 1975 Brownstone released a track by Everyday people feat Alexis "world full of people"....A now cult soul 45 ....This is one of two versions to come out of "Fool-ology". The story goes Bill Brown had lost his voice for the sessions and called in a good friend Billy Wilson to take over the responsibility. He done a great job.

Orgone is one of the most exciting bands in the new generation of funk bands; led by the powerhouse vocals of Adryon de León, Orgone recalls such legendary groups as Rufus and Sly & The Family Stone at their best. Their new album Reasons illuminates a band hitting its stride, capturing the raw power and refined sensibilities that defines Orgone.From the a cappella opening of “All Good Things” to the dance floor filler “Easy Love,” Reasons packs a punch. Vocal harmonies channeling late 70s Fleetwood Mac to synth lines evoking Bernie Worrell's involvement in the Talking Heads, 'Reasons' brings in a new set of influences on ORGONE's 10th studio album while maintaining their classic analog sound.De León is front and center on Reasons, and she does not disappoint evoking the deep soulfulness of Chaka Khan and the bedroom sweetness of Minnie Ripperton. Her versatile vocal performance firmly places her in the top echelon of soul singers today.Reasons is another solid step in a long and storied career. Orgone’s accolades are too long to list in entirety. The well-traveled band has released albums on Ubiquity, Shanachie, and Colemine Records and served as the studio band on hits like Alicia Key’s “Teenage Love Affair” and Cee Lo Green’s Grammy-winning “Fool For You.”

Soul Jazz Records’ new release ‘Soul of A Nation: Jazz is the Teacher, Funk is the Preacher’ is a powerful collection of radical jazz, street funk and proto-rap made in the era of Black Power (1969-75).This is the second ‘Soul of A Nation’ album released by Soul Jazz Records and coincides with the exhibition ‘Soul of a Nation – Art in the Age of Black Power’ currently at the Brooklyn Museum in New York and which moves to Los Angeles at The Broad in spring 2019. The international exhibition was critically received when it was launched last year at the Tate Modern in London (as was the accompanying first album ‘Soul of A Nation – Afro-Centric Visions in the Age of Black Power 1968-79’).This new album features a number of important and ground-breaking African-American artists – The Art Ensemble of Chicago, Don Cherry, Funkadelic, Gil Scott-Heron and more – alongside a host of lesser-known artists all of whom in the early 1970s were exploring new Afro-Centric poly-rhythmical styles of music – radical jazz, street funk and proto-rap – while at the same time exploring the Black Power and civil-rights inspired notions of self-definition, self-respect and self-empowerment in their own lives.During this era African-American jazz musicians ripped up traditional definitions – rejecting the term ‘entertainer’ to redefine themselves instead as ‘artists’. They worked outside of the mainstream music industry perceiving this artistic relationship to be fundamentally exploitative and politically flawed. Artists instead formed their own pan-arts community-centric collectives, set up their own record labels, ran concerts in alternative performance spaces – art galleries, parks, lofts, community centres – all as a way of taking control of their own creative destinies.At the start of 1960s jazz musicians had embarked on an intense period of musical experimentation as artists John Coltrane, Ornette Coleman and Don Cherry sought to dismantle the traditional definitions of jazz by creating new music that broke free from its establishment shackles.By the end of the 1960s and into the 1970s, forward-thinking African-American jazz musicians had absorbed the ideas of this radical and avant-garde path but also began to introduce many new elements – not just civil rights concepts of freedom but also black power ideas of self-respect, righteousness and anger. Their music developed into a radical and intense Afro-Centric mix of jazz, funk, soul, and street poetry all in search of a new musical language that could better represent artistic African-American cultural expression.All of the featured artists here were involved in this search in different ways; a shared sense of Afro-centric collectivism joined the dots between the deep avant-garde experimentalism of The Art Ensemble of Chicago (here featuring soul singer Fontella Bass singing the powerful ‘Theme de Yoyo’) to the hyper-funk psychedelia of George Clinton’s Funkadelic. The poetry of Gil Scott-Heron and Sarah Webster Fabio is performed with a backdrop of street funk and heavyweight percussion – in the process laying down the template for the birth of rap. The Har-You Percussion Group, which grew of a government-sponsored community project in Harlem in the 1960s, connect latin, jazz and funk rhythms; Byron Morris and Unity offer an intense and rhythmical journey. James Mason, Gary Bartz and The Oneness of Juju offer spirituality and cosmology in equal measures. Chicago’s The Pharaohs and Detroit’s collective Tribe add deep jazz and street funk in equal measures. And more besides!The front cover features a painting by Barkley Hendricks, a central artist in the exhibition ‘Soul of A Nation – Art in the Age of Black Power’.

One of the most important background figures of Brazilian Soul in the 70's and 80´s arranger/producer/composer/instrumentalist Robson Jorge, together with his partner Lincoln Olivetti defined the sound of the genre. While Olivetti took most of the fame, Robson Jorge was perhaps the mastermind of the duo, having doubtlessly influenced Tim Maia, but being obscured by his own problems with alcool (which would finally conduce to his precocious demise). The rare Robson Jorge LP 1977 is a testimony of his genius. Born in Rio de Janeiro, he started out in music playing the acoustic guitar that belonged to his brother at age 11. Before turning 15, he was already playing at balls and even recording sessions. By the mid-70s played keyboards on Tim Maia's band (Seroma). Later on that decade, met with keyboardist/arranger Lincoln Olivetti, establishing a solid partnership and making songs recorded by countless artists. Robson and Lincoln were in charge of writing the arrangements for most of the big MPB stars in the 80s, which granted them fame, money and hard critic reviews that accused them of turning MPB into lame pop. Robson Jorge died alone and forgotten in 1992.

Following up on the massive worldwide success of their debut album 55, Bacao Rhythm & Steel band is back with another heavy duty offering. Pickingup where they left off and incorporating a ton of new recording techniques they take a huge step forward with The Serpent’s Mouth. Named after theeight-mile strait between the island of Trinidad and the coast of Venezuela, The Serpent’s Mouth is a journey through both originals and covers,combining classic elements that wide-eared music fans already know, and mashing them up in new and unique ways.Take “1 Thing” – on it, the group attacks the galloping, chopped Amerie smash hit, with singing pans that follow the R & B vocal. The sound is crispand up-front, arguably more muscular than the 2005 original. On “Great To Be Here,” they take on the Jackson 5 B-Boy favorite (which stretches backto the Zulu Nation / Bronx block party days) – uncoincidentally, the original version featured a guitar lick that emulated a steel pan run. Here, it getsan even more pulsating groove, adding open-drums breaks throughout, to get DJs salivating. The group veers through more inventively-constructedcovers as the album’s sequence continues, including Gang Starr’s “All For The Cash”, Mary J. Blige’s “I Love You”, and the recently unleashed firstsingle, “XXplosive” and “Burn,” paying tribute to both Dr. Dre and Mobb Deep for a bi-coastal funk party. And, as band leader Bjorn Wagner states,“My favorite cover on the album is probably ‘Crockett Theme,’ which is the theme to ‘Miami Vice.’ I always loved the melody, and the cosmic vibe ofthe song, and I was honestly surprised that it worked without synthesizers.”This time around the group’s originals are even stronger, as evidenced by cuts like the flute-fueled break-fest of “Hoola Hoop”, the slow and spacey“Touchdown”, and the album’s title track, the future-epic-adventure-movie-soundtrack cut “The Serpent’s Mouth.” Wagner explains, “I wrote the songwith Bernhard Hummer as an instrumental fantasy story – think of pirates, smugglers and a dangerously beautiful sea passage towards the island. Itbecame an allegory for our mind travels into the world of the steel pan.”The Serpent’s Mouth is sure to please past fans and newly-minted ones alike. It seems like a new era for Steel Drum music is upon us, and Bacao isfirmly leading the way into the hearts of music fans around the world.

Essential pick! These buddy's "Baby" was recently covered by Hype Williams on their "Ebony" album, and both tunes are hella fresh!Pacific Northwest isolation mixed with wide-eyed ambition, a strong sense of family and the gift of music proved to be quite the combination for teenage brothers Donnie and Joe Emerson. Originally released in 1979, Dreamin’ Wild is the sonic vision of the talented Emerson boys, recorded in a family built home studio in rural Washington State. Situated in the unlikely blink-and-you-missed-it town of Fruitland and far removed from the late 1970s punk movement and the larger disco boom, Donnie and Joe tilled their own musical soil, channeling bedroom pop jams, raw funk, and yacht rock.Spurred on their high school’s music program, Donnie and Joe received a further push from their lifelong farmer father, who drew up a contract stating that he’d support his sons lofty ambitions with their very own recording studio as long as they focused on original material, sage advice for a man with zero experience in the music business. After taking out a second mortgage to help cover costs, Don Sr. also built his children a 300-capacity concert hall (dubbed Camp Jammin’) replete with ticket booth, stage, and fully functioning snack bar. The only problem was that the projected audience never quite materialized, despite a prime time TV profile entitled “The Rock And Roll Farmers” from nearby Spokane, Washington. Even the Emerson brother’s school pals were nonplussed at their privately pressed long player; hand distributed to local music stores, but not as far as Seattle, five hours away from their rural home. Somewhat rejected by the muted response, but never surrendering, both Donnie and Joe continued down a musical path and are still active as performers today.

Brooklyn's Breakdown Brass are made up of some of the hottest musicians in the NY area. Their cover of Dr. Dre's "Next Episode" is a monster that makes dancefloors go bonkers. Supported by a who’s who of DJs record is a masterful mix of Afro‐funk meets Balkan brass, and with a dash of hip‐hop simmering in the flow. The B‐side "Monmouth" is a driving original with razor sharp horns and a rumbling sousaphone bassline. Guaranteed to get bodies moving and to get dancefloors sweaty, consider this 45 to be fresh ammunition for your record box. Originally issued on Kept Records in 2015, the run quickly sold out and became an instant crate digger classic that now regularly re-sells for upwards of three figures if you are lucky to find someone willing to part ways with it.

Official remastered, reissue of two of Esther Phillips’ breathtaking covers from the early ‘70s. Firstly, Esther’s cover of Gil Scott-Heron’s timeless masterpiece ‘Home Is Where The Hatred Is’. A haunting tale of addiction filled with the rawest of emotions, that can only truly be covered by someone who has fought that same battle with dependency. The pain in Esther’s voice completely conveys this vulnerability and does Gill Scott Heron’s original total justice. Heart-wrenching and completely absorbing in its honesty, it’s a sincere portrayal of the demons both artist’s faced in their lives. On the B side, an adaptation of Eddie Floyd’s ‘I've Never Found A Girl (To Love Me Like You Do)’. Phillips’ trademark soulful tones suit this sweet serenade so well, with the passion oozing from every word she sings. Sit back, relax and prepare to have your heart melted all over again.

Limited colored vinyl edition. One copy per customer.November 5th, 2018 would have been Charles Bradley’s 70th birthday. In celebration of his extraordinary life, Daptone imprint Dunham Records is proud to announce the release of his fourth and final album, Black Velvet.Black Velvet is a celebration of Charles Bradley, lovingly assembled by his friends and family at Dunham/Daptone Records. Though chronologically the material spans Charles' entire career, this is no anthology, greatest hits or other shallow rehashing of the songs that already made him famous. Rather, this album is a profound exploration through the less-travelled corners of the soulful universe that Charles and his longtime producer, co-writer and friend Tommy "TNT" Brenneck created in the studio together over their decade-long partnership. It features new songs recorded during the sessions from each of his three albums, heard here for the very first time in all their scorching glory: "Can't Fight the Feeling," "Fly Little Girl" and the heart-wrenching single "I Feel a Change", hard core rarities like his funk-bomb duet with LaRose Jackson, "Luv Jones," the psychedelic groover, "(I Hope You Find) The Good Life" and the ever-illusive alternate full band electric version of "Victim of Love", sought-after covers of Nirvana's "Stay Away," Neal Young's "Heart of Gold" and Rodriguez's "Slip Away", and the title track "Black Velvet," a stirring Menahan Street Band instrumental to which Charles was never able to cut a vocal.Charles was truly a transcendent singer who led a remarkable life, overcoming unimaginable adversity to achieve great success and international acclaim very late in his life. What was really special about him and made him different from everybody else in the world was how he understood his pain as a cry for universal love and humanity. He felt that if he loved enough—if we all loved each other enough—we could take away the world’s pain and sadness. That is why he jumped off the stage and literally tried to hug everybody he could. It's why he took such great care of a mother that had abandoned him. It's why he sang and danced like a lunatic. It's why he screamed like an eagle. And that's why we love him.Black Velvet is a celebration of his life, and is destined to join Charles' first three albums alongside the cannon of essential soul records for the ages.

Eines ist sicher: Sobald sie das Stück »Alle Menschen Dieser Erde« von Ozan Ata Canani anmachen, aufschnappen, auflegen oder gar live erleben — Sie begegnen einem wunderbaren Menschen. Und da wären wir gleich im Kern seiner Arbeit: Niemand kann sich seiner Poesie entziehen, die sich einfacher Worte bedient und dabei sehr komplexe Zusammenhänge menschlichen Zusammenlebens beschreibt. Poesie, die Türen öffnet, Brücken schlägt und Visionen für die Zukunft liefert. Es sind einfache Antworten auf schwierige Fragen, Antworten, für die es sich lohnt auf der Welt zu sein. Ata kam 197X mit seiner anatolischen Laute, der Bağlama (weiches g — Bahlama!) aus der Türkei nach Deutschland und erfand als junger Erwachsener den türkischen Song in deutscher Sprache. Was ihm in der türkischen Community viel Ignoranz bescherte. In der deutschen Community passierte ausser ein paar wohlmeinenden Fernsehauftritten nichts. Die Songs verschwanden in der Schublade und wurden nichtmal aufgenommen. Vergessen wurden sie jedoch nicht. Als Imran Ayata und Bülent Kullukçu sich an die Arbeit ihrer vielbeachteten Compilation »Songs Of Gastarbeiter« (Trikont 2013) machten, beschlossen sie, dass es ohne Ata nicht geht. Sie trommelten seine alten Weggefährten zusammen und buchten ein Studio. Heraus kam »Deutsche Freunde«, das Kernstück des Samplers. Wer es hört, vergisst es nicht und es wurde zu einer Art Doyç-Deutschen Nationalhymne. Doch das sind noch so viele Lieder, die nicht aufgenommen wurden. Damit jetzt schon wieder nichts passiert fangen wir an — hier ist die erste Single für Fun In The Church! »Alle Menschen dieser Erde« hat den selbsterklärlichsten Text, den man sich vorstellen kann, daher vermeiden wir die Interpretation. Es ist für alle da. Für Sie, Ihre Nachbarn, Freunde und für Ihre Mutter. Drehen Sie's auf und öffnen Sie die Fenster, dann wird etwas passieren….

Transparent Orange Vinyl! Durand Jones & the Indications aren't looking backwards. Helmed by foil vocalists in Durand Jones and drummer Aaron Frazer, the Indications conjure the dynamism of Jackie Wilson, Curtis Mayfield, AND the Impressions. Even with an aesthetic steeped in the golden, strings-infused dreaminess of early `70s soul, the Indications' sophomore LP, American Love Call, is planted firmly in the present, with the urgency of this moment in time. The Indications' 2016 self-titled debut was the product of friends who met as students at Indiana University in Bloomington, In., recorded for $452.11, including a case of beer. American Love Call, the band's sophomore LP is instead the record the Indications dreamed of making, fleshed out with strings, backing vocals, and a newfound confidence in songwriting. Blending a slew of influences from years spent crate-digging, guitarist Blake Rhein says the Indications approach songs in the same way hip-hop producers do, as likely to pull inspiration from `70s folk-rock or classic R&B as they are Nas' Illmatic. "Did I expect to do this shit once I got out of college? Hell no," Jones relays, laughing. "Totally not. But this is what God is telling me to do - move and groove. So I'm gonna stay in my lane."

Previously unreleased. Within the music scene of every major city, secrets are tucked into the corners and the shadows of its collective memory. Hidden away there are the names and accomplishments of incredible artists and players that never quite spilled over into national and international acclaim. For Portland, Oregon, much of that involves the jazz, soul, funk, disco and R&B acts that held sway during the ’60s, ’70s and ’80s. The Albina Music Trust, an initiative of the World Arts Foundation, has been making efforts to shine some light on these lesser-known artists and preserve their work for future generations of listeners and players alike.Named for the North Portland neighborhood where many of these musicians performed and lived, the Albina Music Trust is thrilled to announce their first foray into bringing some of the music of that era back into circulation: the release of an LP by funk ensemble The Gangsters.Recorded in the early ’70s, this collection of instrumentals is a crystal clear glimpse into a forgotten period of Portland’s music history. Fostered by the Albina Art Center, a hangout spot for creatively-inclined black youth, The Gangsters were led by trumpeter Thara Memory, who wrote and arranged all of their material, and produced the sessions heard on this vinyl-only release. After gigging around the city for a few years, the group—who were almost all in their late teens—laid down some tracks at Ripcord Studios, but they disbanded soon thereafter and the tapes sat in a closet, unheard for over 40 years.Rescued from obscurity, the tracks on this album have all the punch and hip-swinging joy of fellow jazz/funk artists like The Crusaders, Weather Report and Pleasure. But with Thara Memory leading the charge, the music has a rich complexity, best exemplified by the nine-minute “Suite for Funk Band,” which runs through a series of movements that touch on Latin grooves and post-bop before culminating in an almost-psychedelic breakdown capped off by a devastating guitar solo.For many members of The Gangsters, their careers would continue to flourish. The late Thara Memory became a renowned educator and won a Grammy for his work with Esperanza Spalding on her 2013 album Radio Music Society. Jimmy and Johnny Sanders toured in B.B. King’s band throughout his final decade of performance. Bassist Lester McFarland would go on to play with jazz icons The Crusaders, The Jeff Lorber Fusion and Tom Grant. But what this record captures is lightning in a bottle, a period when these young men crossed paths and created a burst of energy and light.From start to finish, The Gangsters has been a community production completed 100% locally in Portland, Oregon. This vinyl-only release by Albina Music Trust comes with a beautifully-designed 12-page booklet featuring archival photos and advertisements from The Gangsters’ heyday, and an oral history of the band, told to executive producer Bobby Smith by the group’s surviving members. Covers have been printed on Stumptown custom Kraft Duplex paperboard. The record has been keenly transferred by Dave Fulton and mastered by Gus Elg.

Saigon Supersound Continues… to present more interesting tunes of a musical era that has long been obscured. With the well-received Volume 1, we are very delighted to dig deeper and share with you the beautiful music of a short but significant period in Vietnam‘s history.Much like the country itself, the music of Vietnam has endured many twists. As the result of the Geneva Accords in 1954, Vietnam was divided into two. From the North, the Nationalist forces fought to reunite Vietnam as a Communist State, while the American troops backed the government of the South. This caused a mass migration of Northerners to the South, which includes many Tân Nhạc (Modern Music) singers and songwriters. Often characterized by its emotive, poetic and prolific personality, Tân Nhạc continued to freely develop in the South and progressively vacating from the influences of its main inspiration, French music. In the North, the Resistance music, or the so-called Nhạc Đỏ (Red Music), which promoted socialism, patriotism and anti-capitalism was the only genre allowed on national radio. Tân Nhạc was something new to the South Vietnamese repertoire. Between 1954–1960, the theme of hometown (quê hương) was a main inspiration for many songwriters such as Hoàng Thi Thơ, Lam Phương and Nguyễn Hữu Thiết. The 9th title of the compilation, “Thôn Trăng Mở Hội Trăng Tròn” showcases a variety of images that were often described in this genre: the harvest moon, playful children, old mother…Every recording made in this era is then an organic combination of human experiences, communications and uniqueness. In 1965, the first American troop landed in Vietnam, bringing with them the musical influences of the Beatles, Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix, Elvis Presley… The Vietnamese people quickly integrated it into the repertoire with hope to further diversify the music of Vietnam. Constantly changing and learning from different cultures, the modern music of Vietnam cuts a window into the soul of a Vietnamese person and the country’s history as a whole. With that, we hope that Saigon Supersound Volume 2 would take you on a trip back to the unique atmosphere of Saigon through the many different palettes of music that this beautiful place offers.

Violinist and vocalist, Sudan Archives writes, plays, and produces her own music. Drawing inspiration from Sudanese fiddlers, she is self-taught on the violin, and her unique songs also fold in elements of R&B, and experimental electronic music. Sudan Archives grew up in Cincinnati, Ohio, where she "messed around with instruments in the house" and took up violin in the fourth grade, eventually teaching herself how to play the instrument by ear. When she discovered the violin playing style of Northeast Africa, her eyes opened to the possibilities of the instrument. "The way they played it was different from classical music. I resonated with the style, and I was like, 'Maybe I can use this style with electronic music,'" she says. This fusing of folk music and electronic production was the turning point for Sudan. "I started mixing my violin into beats,” she says, “It wasn't complicated — I'd just sing straight into the iPad." She honed her at-home style after moving to Los Angeles aged 19 to study music technology, and after a chance encounter at a Low End Theory party with Stones Throw A&R and Leaving Records owner Matthewdavid, she signed with Stones Throw. At the very start of her musical career, she's already won plaudits from the likes of the New York Times and Pitchfork, and played live at experimental festival Moogfest. Her EP Sudan Archives is an extraordinary debut statement from a singular artist. Over six tracks, Sudan Archives layers harmonies, violin figures and ethereal vocals, grounding them all with the hip-hop beats.

The Ethio Jazz album by Mulatu Astatqé is a jewel of the modern Ethiopian music and a mythical album, since the beginning of Ethiopian music reissues. An incredibly groovy Ethiopian record, originally from 1969-1972. Amazing orchestral 'Ethio-groove' filled with US soul, jazz, sometimes Latin and the deepest Eastern rhythms, even including some great nasty and dirty fuzz guitars. A true gem of Ethiopian modern instrumental music, which illustrates perfectly this symbiosis of strong rhythms and quality arrangements of subtle yet deep Ethiopian melodies. A must for all '60s/'70s collectors! In the Ethiopian musical landscape, Mulatu Astatke is a unique musician, composer, arranger. His real contribution consists in his action for instrumental music, in a country where orchestral traditions doesn't exist. For the last 30 years, he is the leading head of the Ethiopian musical scene. First vinyl reissue and definitely one of the most important Ethiopian music albums.

Barbara Howard’s On The Rise is more than just another rare soul LP. It’s a love story. It’s a dream. It was an attempt to break through. And although Barbara certainly never became a star, one song did become a staple in rare soul and funk DJ sets, keeping interest in Barbara Howard just under the surface. And as fate would have it in 2016, a sealed copy of the LP would find its way into Plaid Room Records in Loveland, OH and kick start the revival of her story and her music.In 1968, as an outgrowth of a community movement and talent search program called “Operation Step-Up”, Steven Reece wanted to take his community movement to the next level. This is when the idea of founding an independent label came to mind. The idea was to self-produce quality records and through successful sales attempt to land major label distribution. Steve identified Barbara Howard as the talent and set to producing her record. The idea was to produce an LP with a variety of tracks that could be marketed to a variety of radio formats and markets (gospel, pop, soul, jazz, etc.).And while the record fizzled shortly after its release, Steve and Barbara ended up getting married shortly afterwards making this possibly the most romantic production of a record is soul music history. So via Colemine’s reissue imprint Remined Records, we are proud to present to you Barbara Howard’s On The Rise.Recommend for fans of: Aretha Franklin, Betty Davis, Lyn Collins, Sharon Jones, Ann Peebles

Over the last five years and as many volumes of their “Beach Diggin’” compilations, Guts and Mambo have explored the reefs of five continents, dredged the sea beds of countless seas and oceans, examined every single seashell with the aim of making sure that no vinyl pearl should escape their notice.Tunisian reggae, Japanese disco, West Indian jazz-funk, the duo’s aesthetic dribbling skills would stop the savviest Brazilian football player dead in his tracks, and it was with this in mind, that they proceeded to select their discoveries. With a marked preference for meditative free-diving rather than tour package scuba diving, and isolated spots rather than massively overdeveloped beach fronts.For this latest installment of their adventures, Guts and Mambo have organized another expedition around the world, to salute the spots where for the last five years they have uncovered rare specimens, saving some of them from total extinction, while shining a light on others that amply deserved it.Though each “Beach Diggin’” compilation can be listened to independently of the others, the five together now form a kind of navigational chart signaling with its green flags the places where, in Africa, Europe, Asia, America, and the South Pacific, they gamboled on sandy beaches, avoiding the well-trodden path, becoming more and more demanding with each passing year. Beach diggin’ is a state of mind...The fifth and last volume of this well and successful series comes with a deluxe packaging as usual.

Many know Luther Davis from his more familiar and previously reissued disco floater 'You Can Be A Star', not so many people outside the collector's world know the disco-funk 45 'Keep on Dancin' as its about 4x as rare and slightly more out there musically (which is a good thing). The horn and guitar led disco funk hook float's almost precisely between Modern Soul and Deepfunk (The scene that played it first) and for a change i love the guitar solo, used almost like a synth effect. On the flip is an admittedly formulaic deep soul joint that just works due to the dope backing vocals and crispy drumming.

Contains two unreleased early 1970s monster soul tracks! This is a 12", 180g EP. On Side A, smile your way through two songs found only on PP006 by The Teacher Haters — in fact, we challenge you to get through these tracks without smiling. Straight out of the 60s comes a group that could have been played with Sam The Sham & The Pharaohs back in the day. These whimsical works are deceptively deep as they take us to a time when garage punk fused with R&B. The two bonus tracks on Side B are unreleased early 1970s dance floor igniters. The first track on Side B offers a special treat in We Got A Thing by an unknown group — a crossover soul dancer that invites you to sing along with an infectious, call-and-response chorus. Things go deeper with Guys Today - a soul beat ballad in the vein of Betty Wright or Helene Smith. At first glance, The Teacher Haters and the two unknown groups seem to share only a few things in common — party-themed music conceived in the 60s with an R&B flavor. But between sides A and B, it feels like these groups are talking to each other — perhaps different perspectives of the same party. Perhaps the party itself and then the fallout. The result is a balanced EP release that feels whole and satisfying. We hope you feel the same as we proudly present these found recordings as an exclusive 12” on 180 gram vinyl. Please enjoy.

Genre:Organic Grooves
When you see some dude having listed an album for sale somewhere for the utterly crazy price of 7500 US$ saying in the item description that he actually does not even want to sell it due to being his favorite piece of music ever, it really must be something special. When you check for other auctions and sales and find this goodie being sold regularily for 650 to 1200 US$, you get your first impression confirmed. This is indeed a really special album. THE GHETTO BROTHERS were not initially a rock band when they formed in the Bronx / NYC back in the late 60s. They were a street gang with mainly Puerto Rican members with a rather political attitude. For example they tried to uplift young black and hispanic people or even stood in between rival gangs to make a truce work. They were certainly not only good guys concerning their actions as they used to plunder a local music store, Mary Lou Records, from time to time where then young Bobby Marin, a leading figure in the field of 1960s Boogaloo music and later on famous record producer up to the present day, used to work in. As the store owner thought about using a shotgun to solve that problem, Bobby Marin convinced him not to do so to avoid that anybody gets hurt and took the chance to speak personally with the gang leader Benji Mendelez who turned out to be the lead singer of a band formed by members of the GHETTO BROTHERS. Meanwhile Benji Mendelez found out about Bobby’s engagement in the music industry and both made an agreement. Bobby would produce an album by THE GHETTO BROTHERS and this is what we now will talk about. In what way is this an outstanding gem of Latin American funky rock music from the steamy, loud and dirty streets of the South Bronx / NYC? Well, it is of course rare as golddust in its original pressing. This is an aspect that makes it interesting for collectors of 70s Music and the seed from which the legendary reputation grows. But does the music really match with the status the album enjoys among music lovers? It does. My first impression was that THE GHETTO BROTHERS were a very talented band mixing earthy garage rock with the one or another occasional fuzz guitar and Latin American sounds and atmospheres to create an exciting, simmering version of current rock music. The garage rock stamp still fits perfectly with this album as the sound is quite basic and vivid, just as if you were standing with the band in a dusty basement room where they either rehearse or play a show to a crowd of frantic youngsters. The music itself is quite relaxed in most parts, with the one or another exception. „Got this happy feeling“ sticks out with flashing rhythms and a cheerful lead vocal line upon a bed of likewise flashing guitars with a funky touch. So these funky elements also make you realize that there is more behind than meets the ear. And when the band goes into sheer groove passages with the percussions and drums taking over the lead role, I am certain nobody will be left on his seat. This song reminds me of a more primitive version, if I can say this, of what SANTANA did a couple of years prior during the time they released their debut album and played Woodstock. And indeed these Puerto Ricans have the talent even to be on par with good old Carlos and his mates, who already were super heroes by the time THE GHETTO BROTHERS released their sole album. No idea who even might be the greater in terms of musicianship and composition values but with a major production this album would probably have given SANTANA a run for their money. But gang life is tough and casualties appeared leading the band to the land of myths and fables. But with many folks who love this music the band stayed for nearly 50 years and this reissue on EVERLAND RECORDS happens as always at the right time to keep the flame burning brightly and maybe even brighter than ever. A few old members, including leader Benji Mendelez, are no longer with us to enjoy the late success of this masterpiece but those who remain will. If you like Latin garage rock such as LAGHONIA from Peru, this is the real deal for you. Grab your copy and celebrate life as this is what THE GHETTO BROTHERS always had in mind.
