Release:2017 / EU – Original
Genre:Organic Grooves
What started as an idea 5 years ago now becomes reality with the release of SAIGON SUPERSOUND Vol.1, compiled by Jan Hagenkötter. A compilation about the story of a musical era in Vietnam that was almost lost, made of tracks from 1965 to 1975, the so-called “Golden Music” period in the south of Vietnam, where – under difficult circumstances – a lively pop culture had developed. This period is characterized by the fusion of Vietnamese music with western pop music. The compilation includes some tunes reissued for the very first time since they´ve been released originally. With the release of Saigon Supersound Vol. 1 on double gatefold vinyl and cd in May 2017 the story of this nearly unknown music will be reissued.Jan Hagenkötter a music-lover and DJ who is also the mind behind the renowned music publishing company and record label INFRACom!, relocated to Saigon in 2012. In co-operation with the Vietnam based dOSe crew, Jan organized parties and shows, inviting guest and friends like DJ Spinna, Jazzanova, Alice Russell and many other artists. During this year as he was spinning tunes in Saigon and other parts of South East Asia the idea for this project was born. In 2013 Jan returned to Germany but has been swinging back and forth between Saigon and Frankfurt ever since.In the following years he began to research and collect more seriously. He bought vinyl singles from around the world, often several copies of the same release, just to restore or rather “rebuild” one good recording from several sources. With the help of friends based in Saigon, he was able to navigate an almost impenetrable jungle of music websites. Thanks to invaluable support and translation assistance from Vietnamese friends, he came into contact with several collectors. The best recordings from this treasure hunt were then retouched, refined and remastered in the studio for this release.Besides this amazing project, Vietnamese producers like Maqman from Saigon, DJ Yellow from Paris and others who also share roots in Vietnam have already started to work on edits and re-works of songs featured on Saigon Supersound Vol. 1. These will be released in a next step....the mission is not completed....it just started!

Genre:Organic Grooves
Favorite Recordings and Charles Maurice proudly present the 3rd edition of their acclaimed AOR Global Sounds compilations series. Another brilliant selection of 14 rare and hidden tracks, produced between 1976 and 1985 in various parts of the world.On AOR Global Sounds Vol.3, DJ and producer Charles Maurice delivers again a fine overview of the AOR and WestCoast influences for many artists in the late 70s and early 80s. Even more than on previous volumes, he selected highly forgotten productions, deeply infused with Disco and Soul flavors.Many of these great gems were naturally produced through all the USA, often made by artists with a very short career and as private press. For example, Jeff Silna only recorded this amazing song after winning the competition of a long gone Miami radio station, the Stratus project started around 1974 in Rhinelander, Wisconsin, and was a band led by Bob Ackley who only released this 7” single in 1976 after recording a full album and doing a few gigs around Michigan, John Kontol (Jon Konteau), however having credits for a few productions and appearances and still acting as a musician, never released another LP after his heartbreaking experience with Erect Records, that never rewarded him for his work and even change his name against his consent, as for “Dirt (In The Sky” by 7 Days Unlimited, whose both members were from Pittsburgh area, where a lot of dirt was literally flying in the air, the song was released in 1980 on a very limited 500 copies 7” single.But this kind of stories and waste of talent is not solely and American privilege, from Willy Santana (member of Placa Luminosa) in Brazil, and Funky Team in Sweden, to Stacey and Out Of The Fog in Canada, this 3rd edition proves again if necessary the international scope and fervor of this music scene, and the surprising amount of great music that go unnoticed at that time.Fully remastered from originals, with great attention to sound quality as always, AOR Global Sounds Vol.3 (1976-1985, selected by Charles Maurice) is presented by Favorite Recordings in a gatefold vinyl double LP.

Release:2017 / US – Original
Genre:Organic Grooves
“The only time you wear a Tuxedo is when it’s time to party.”So says legendary West Coast player Snoop Dogg on the opening track of “Tuxedo II”. The blessing of the Doggfather is of special importance to Mayer Hawthorne and Jake One, whose second album as a duo finds them at the forefront of a new wave of gangster boogie - one that owes as much to G-funk as P-funk.This is the territory of pre- and post-hydraulic low riders: a mélange of Cali boom-bap, analog synth bass and elegant disco that resonates truth and authenticity in an era where so many are faking the funk.Bonding over a shared love of Chic, Parliament, and the other signs in the greater funk Zodiac, Mayer Hawthorne (Aquarius) and Jake One (Taurus) were early predictors of the sea changes that American music would undergo in 2016. Their first release of 2015 debuted at #1 on iTunes America’s RnB charts, christened as “Dance Floor Catnip” by the Boston Globe, and “Pure disco-funk hot fire” by Okayplayer. Considering their individual successes (Mayer’s four solo albums, Jake’s production work for the likes of Drake, Future, The Weeknd, and De La Soul) and five Grammy nominations between the two of them, it’s no surprise that their powers combined have yet again yielded a bevy of absolute slappers that are packaged perfectly for dance parties in 2017. The material here, while wholly original, is an exercise in honoring its forebears. “Tuxedo II” recalls the future funk wobble of Zapp, Gap, Jam/ Lewis and Junie Morrison, while nodding lyrically to Mtume, Jodeci and Cameo.The crystallization of the album’s concept comes courtesy of its message of universal love; thanks to the signature combination of soul and pop sensibility that have come to define Mayer’s hooks.“You gotta do what you love...” says Mayer in a recent interview with Nordstrom’s style blog, one of the many fashion outlets to cover Tuxedo’s rise. After all - the transcendental ritual of the party and the rippling self affirmation of the funk are of one spirit: the spirit of self love...of self expression. “Tuxedo II” is a modern testament to unity and positivity in trying times. It is a reminder that the dance floor will always be there to welcome you, whoever you are.

Die "Gleisdreieck" Vinyl Edition ist als Doppel-LP (12", 180g, Virgin Vinyl) mit 17 Titeln erhältlich. Dazu gibt es einen MP3 Download Voucher für 17 Titel plus 9 weiteren Bonustracks und das als exklusive und auf 500 Stück limitierte hhv.de Colored Vinyl Auflage in Orange.Joy Denalane hat deutschen Soul erfunden und damit deutschen Pop geprägt. Sie hat mit Freundeskreis und Max Herre gearbeitet und ihre ganz eigene Stimme gefunden. Ihr neues Album führt sie zurück nach Berlin, zurück ans „Gleisdreieck“, das sich plötzlich auch als Symbol lesen lässt: eine Gabelung ins Ungewisse, in die Vergangenheit und die Zukunft. “Ich habe mich gefragt: Was sind die Gedanken, die mich gerade wirklich umtreiben? Was habe ich zu sagen? Wer bin ich eigentlich?” Auf diesen Fragen gründen die Songs auf “Gleisdreieck”. Gemeinsam mit ihren Songwriter-Kollegen Maxim, Tua, Jasmin Shakeri, Alex Freund, Ali Zuckowski, David Jürgens, Martin Fliegenschmidt und Max Herre hat Joy Denalane für “Gleisdreieck” einige der prägendsten Erlebnisse ihrer jüngeren Vergangenheit aufgearbeitet. Der klassische Joy-Sound, mit seinen Wurzeln im Gospel, Afrobeat und 70s-Soul, wird auf “Gleisdreieck” ergänzt und stellenweise ersetzt von einem entwaffnend eleganten Future R&B. Die Produktion von KAHEDI (alias Samon Kawamura, Max Herre und Roberto Di Gioia), Tua, Alex Freund, Philipp Niessen, Ali Zuckowski, David Jürgens, Ghanaian Stallion, KitschKrieg, FLY und Ben Bazzazian ist unbedingt im Moment und schwebt doch über den Trends und Trendchen, die einem Woche für Woche in den Feed schwappen. Immer wieder tauchen auf dem Album auch Rap-Strophen auf, wie flüchtige Begegnungen in einer überfüllten Nacht. Der junge Berliner Chima Ede ist ebenso zu hören wie Deutschlands kommender Trap-King Rin, die talentierte Hamburgerin Eunique, Tua, Megaloh, Ahzumjot, Marteria. Sie alle ergänzen Joys Geschichte/n mit ihren persönlichen Perspektiven und verorten sie noch klarer im Hier und Jetzt.

Open Soul is quite simply one of the best examples of raw, stripped down soul in its purest form, and for this reason has become a highly sought after rarity. The album has been carefully reproduced and will be officially available for the first time in 40 Years, this time accompanied by an interview with one of the original brothers, various Tomorrow's People memorabilia and a number of other contributions from Melodies' friends around the world.This reissue by Tomorrow's People is released in collaboration with Timothy Burton.

Als The Roots einen seiner Songs unter dem Titel "The Seed (2.0)" neu aufnahmen und den USamerikanischenGitarristen und Soul-Sänger dafür ans Mikro baten, feierte Cody Chesnutt seinenkommerziellen Durchbruch. Dabei ist der Mann aus Atlanta bereits seit 1992 musikalisch aktiv. Wer esverpasst hat: Chesnutts Debüt "The Headphone Masterpiece" (2002), von dem auch das "The Seed"-Originalstammte, ist mit einer Mischung aus Marvin Gaye, D’Angelo, Prince, Portishead, Al Green, Sly Stone, ModestMouse und Common einerseits und Neo Soul, Funk, Rock, Blues und Hip-Hop andererseits ein Meisterwerk.Erstaunlicherweise zog sich Chesnutt nach seinem Erstling zehn Jahre ins Privatleben zurück und besannsich aufs Leben, bevor er 2012 das Album "Landing On A Hundred" herausbrachte, das ebenfalls von derKritik gefeiert wurde und Chesnutt viel Aufmerksamkeit einbrachte. Zum Glück hat es bis zur Veröffentlichungdes dritten Albums nur noch fünf Jahre gedauert - das lässt für die Zukunft hoffen, zumal "My Love DivineDegree" gespickt voll ist mit großartigen Songs. Produziert wurde das Werk von Anthony "The Twilight Tone"Khan, der auch schon für Kanye West, Common, John Legend und Pusha T. tätig war.

This has not been easy, after much determination we are able to release this incredible album recorded back in 1969. Recorded at Paramount Studios and first released on an independent label Mothers Records & The Snarf Company, it was arranged and produced by soul legend H.B. Barnum who saved the master tapes and after an extensive search made them available to us. The quality is amazing, and on our 180g vinyl we have the ultimate version. Spanky Wilson is a soul funk and jazz singer from Philadelphia. “Doin’ It” has become one of her most sought after albums in its own right, and for the breaks sampled and used by artists including LTJ Bukem, Aldo Vanucci, Monosurround, Lionrock, Paradox, Ursula 1000, Aim, Bahama Soul Club, Jungle Brothers featuring Black Eyed Peas and Valis. Originals have exchanged hands for £200 a copy.

Al Massrieen: Disco, Funk and modernized Arabic Pop from EgyptIn the beginning of Habibi Funk, our search was focussed on vinyl records. Around a year ago though, we got to the point where we realized that it became substantially harder to discover music, that we enjoyed and hadn’t heard before. It became apparent that it was time to start looking for other formats. Cassette tapes were the obvious alternative. These were introduced in the arabic world around the late 1970s. In some countries they took over a bit earlier, in others a bit later, but eventually they pushed the vinyl format out of the market in the 1980s. In Egypt this trend already even started in the late 1970s.Al Massrieen was one of the first bands I learned about once I discovered the tape format for myself. They were really popular in Egypt in the 1970s and the more of their music I found on either tapes or Arabic pirate mp3 sites, the more I was becoming a fan. Only very few bands from the region can match the band’s versatility as well as their strive for innovation. Hany Shenoda is the man behind the Al Massrieen band. He is a reknown figure of the Egyptian music scene and has worked with everyone from Abdel Halim Hafez to Mohamed Mounir. Al Massrieen was his attempt to introduce his ideas of modernizing Egyptian music, heavily encouraged by Naguib Mahfouz (Egypt's only winner of the Nobel Price for literature) after discussing his ideas with him. Al Massrieen's sound goes from lush disco like “Sah” to psych rock like “Horreya” or incredible jazz fused pop on songs such as “Edba Mn Gded”. I was shocked to realize the band seemed to be hardly known outside Egypt, even though I feel they're at least on the same level as Ahmed Fakroun. An relative obscurity which I largely attribute to the fact that their releases never have been pressed on vinyl (apart from a Greece best of LP which wasn’t a strong compilation of the group’s songs). One way or another it felt like this band and especially their composer, band leader and overall brain Hany Shenoda was in need to get some recognition outside of Egypt. The release is fully licensed from the band and comes with an extensive booklet with liner notes, interviews and unseen photos.

Hinter dem Alias BB Boogie verbirgt sich Daz-I-Kue, Originalmitglied von Bugz In The Attic. Und das nichtohne Grund. Als Teil des Londoner Produzenten- und DJ-Kollektivs war Daz-I-Kue in den Nullerjahrenmaßgeblicher Protagonist der Broken-Beat-Szene. Doch damit hat sein Solodebüt "Standing On The Wall"überhaupt nichts am Hut. Nach seinem Umzug nach Atlanta ist er tief in die dortige, lokale Musikszeneeingetaucht. Und seitdem ist Daz-I-Kue vom Soul-, Funk- und Disco-Virus infiziert. Was sich natürlich nichtallein im Künstlernamen niederschlägt, sondern vor allem im Sound von "Standing On The Wall". DessenCovergestaltung und der Albumtitel dürfen dabei als Reminiszenz an "Off The Wall", Michael Jacksonsbahnbrechendem Werk von 1979, gesehen werden. Klanglich orientiert sich die Doppel-LP ebenfalls andieser Zeit, das heißt dem Boogie der späten Siebziger und frühen Achtziger und damit Größen wie UnlimitedTouch, Chic, Rod Temperton, Roy Ayers und Cameo. Bei den elf Songs gingen Daz-I-Kue prominenteSänger und Musiker zur Hand, darunter Vanessa Freeman, Monica Blaire, Joy Jones, Grant Green Jr. sowieder legendäre Leroy Burgess.Seite

With their first two Daptone albums – Get an Understanding, and as featured singers on Como Now – The Como Mamas established themselves as three of the strongest voices in gospel music today. In December of 2015, they cemented that reputation by taking their first trip from their home in Como, MS up to Harlem, NY to crush the Apollo Theater as part of the Daptone Super Soul Revue. Taking full advantage of their presence in town, the Daptone crew brought Ester Mae Wilbourn, Della Daniels, and Angelia Taylor into the House of Soul the week after the show to join forces for the first time with the musicians and studio that has defined their label’s sound. Jimmy Hill, Thomas Brenneck, Homer Steinweiss, and Bosco Mann, all stalwarts of the Daptone stable, came together as “The Glorifiers Band,” to put down a churning musical foundation for these amazing singers. The results are some of the heaviest tracks that Daptone has cut to date. If you don’t like raw, soulful gospel music, you’re really gonna hate this one. Move Upstairs is a real mother!

"Endless Chain" is the new single from the heavily acclaimed debut album "Soul Run" by "Toronto's next breakout act (Uncut Magazine)" Tanika Charles, available on a new super limited clear 45. Produced by Slakah The Beatchild (BBE Records), best known for his work with Canadian superstar Drake, "Endless Chain" is available on this new crackin' limited edition 45 clear vinyl (limited to 250 copies worldwide).With roots in Trinidad & Tobago, Edmonton raised Miss Charles presents an immutable charm, at times endearingly abrasive and honest in her vulnerabilities. If she's singing it, she's lived it. According to Tanika the song is "the revitalizing feeling of a new relationship. Butterflies and twinkly eyes. A rediscovered strength after a period of weakness". With its happy lyrics, catchy chorus and vintage sound, yet modernised by an emphasis on a booming neo-soul beat, "Endless Chain" will make people sing-along and will set every dance floor on fire.In a few short years, Tanika Charles has transformed from an emerging solo artist to a commanding performer and bandleader, a staple in the Canadian soul scene, both on stage and off. Her debut album was nominated for "Juno Awards 2017" (Canadian Grammys) in the "Best R&B/Soul Album" category, and it is receiving raving reviews and support from all over the world.

The Numero Group’s dive into the deep end of America’s private press continues. Having battled the witches and wizards of Darkscorch, the outlaws of Cosmic Americana, and traveled alongside Ladies From the Canyon and their Lonesome Heroes, it’s time to take it easy.With pop music’s volume knob adjusted for deflation in the early ‘70s, softness begat smoothness. Crewmen arrived from the worlds of jazz, folk, rock, and soul, all peddling a product that was sincere, leisurely, and lofty. A sound that was buoyant, crisp, defined. Sometimes classified as West Coast—and, later, Yacht Rock—the compass points of our Private Yacht expedition are the blue-eyed harmonies of Hall and Oates, the cocaine-dusted Fender Rhodes of Michael McDonald, and the combover strums of James Taylor. Here, at the glassy apex of rock’s softer side, 20 strong swimmers are gathered together. An album for both relaxation and reflection, where listeners can enjoy the present, a cool breeze, and a taste of the good life.

You have to really search through the Doré catalogue to find the soul 45s, but when you do it is hugely rewarding. Its jewels have only been revealed to Northern Soul collectors over time and several are ridiculously scarce; Little Johnny Hamilton’s ‘Keep On Movin’’ and the Swans’ ‘Nitty Gritty City’ remain one-off disc discoveries. Guaranteed dancefloor classics abound, including Rita & the Tiaras’ ‘Gone With The Wind Is My Love’, Little Johnny Hamilton’s ‘Oh How I Love You’ and the Puffs’ ‘I Only Cry Once A Day Now’. The Superbs’ ‘Wind In My Sails’ and Milton James’ mesmeric ‘My Lonely Feeling’ represent the funkier end of the Northern Soul sound, while tracks by Ray Marchand and the Shades Of Jade are subtle mid-tempo soul of the highest quality. Nearly all are rare, expensive and beautiful, while Kenard’s ‘What Did You Gain By That’ is highly imaginative, and the Fidels’ ‘I’m Givin’ You Notice Baby’ is just a classic 60s soul stomper. All together on beautiful 12-inch vinyl, they are irresistible.

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.

AGS-7006 marks the first 7-inch release of these two songs!!Brought to light in the 21st century on Psychemagik’s Magik Sunrise compilation in 2013, “House On The Rock” is a shimmering, sophisticated groove with a strong West Coast sound — songwriter Rob Mehl spend nearly three decades between Southern California and Hawaii, where the surf was too irresistible to leave behind for very long. He first moved to Oahu in 1958, a year before Hawai‘i became the 50th state.“House On The Rock” has become a staple for summer-ready mixtapes from DJs and collectors, including multi-instrumentalist Shawn Lee of the modern day Yacht Rock group Young Gun Silver Fox.The equally strong “Taste And See” on the flipside provides the only lyrical reference to Hawai‘i (“mangos and papayas got flavors of their own”) while remaining in line with Mehl’s smooth West Coast vibe — he hired two of Chuck Mangione’s colleagues for the recording, guitarist Steve O’Conner and horn player John Rekevics.Surprisingly, Mehl’s original vision was to do an album of traditional Hawaiian music, but one day a friend told him he’s too “haole” and the idea just won’t work. “I was crushed, I was devastated. “Taste And Sea”, it was gonna be this mix of songs I’d written and kanaka wai wai (Hawaiian songs).”Photographer Steve Wilkings of the recently shuttered Surfer Magazine took pictures of Mehl surfing for the album cover. But label executives in California decided to use an illustration of a plate, fork and spoon instead.“They were thinking of a bigger audience. All I was thinking of was my friends — c’mon, nobody’s gonna buy this but my friends! — and I’d probably just give it to ‘em.” The original LP now sells for $200 online!!

Release:1970 / EU – Reissue
Genre:Organic Grooves
Here's a revamped reissue of an extremely rare Italian library album from 1970. Arawak is one of the many pseudonyms that Luciano Simoncini used as a composer of film scores and background music for radio and television in Italy. This album stayed under the radar until hip-hop performer Quasimoto (an alter ego of producer Madlib) sampled 'Accade A Harlem' for the 'Suono Libero' series. The laid-back grooves and dreamy atmospheres alternate with more funky sounds to make for a truly unique listening experience.

“Say You Love Me” war nicht die erste Soloaufnahme von “Om” Alec Khaoli, dochdie EP von 1985 zementierte den Ruf des Bassisten und Songwriters als einer derinnovativsten Popsongwriter in Südafrika. Er baute seine Karriere auf allgegenwärtigenRock, Pop und Soul Hits mit so bahnbrechenden Bands wie The Beaters, Harariund Umoja auf. Doch seine anscheinend niemals versiegende Musikquelle sprudelteauch außerhalb dieser Ensembles, in denen er typischerweise Bass spielt und zuSongwriting und Gesang beitrug. Khaoli veröffentlichte einige erfolgreicheSoloarbeiten, während er gerade mit Umoja aufnahm und mit Freunden an anderenProjekten arbeitete. Diese Kreativität wurde durch Khaolis eigenes Aufnahmestudiounterstützt. Er war der erste Südafrikaner mit einem privaten Studio. Weil schwarzeKünstler dazu gezwungen waren, in den Mittagspausen aufzunehmen und nichtausreichend Zugang zu den Studios im Besitz von Weißen hatten, war es dieses privateStudio, das es Khaoli erlaubte, sich eigenständig weiterzuentwickeln. Daraus erklärtsich auch sein weitreichendes kreatives Output in den achtziger und frühen neunzigerJahren, in denen er fünf Alben mit Umoja und fünf Solo-LPs neben einer ganzen Stangevon Singles und LPs veröffentlichte. Der fast schon epische Popsound aus „Say You LoveMe“ ist breit und dynamisch. Als erster Südafrikaner, der seinen eigenenAufnahmeprozess kontrollierte und sich somit von den vielen Entbehrungen aus derApartheid befreite, eröffnete Khaoli seiner Vision von Musik neue Luft zum Atmenund erschuf fast schon nebenbei zeitlose Musik für die Tanzfläche

At Last
LP | 1977 | EU | Reissue (Odion Livingstone)
21,99 €*
Release:1977 / EU – Reissue
Genre:Organic Grooves
"At Last" war das Debütalbum der nigerianischen College-Band Grotto. Es erschien im Jahr 1977 undfusionierte auf mitreißende und eigenwillige Weise Rock mit Funk und Afrobeat. Ursprünglich formierte sichGrotto aus 15-, 16-jährigen Schülern des St. Gregory College in Lagos. Ausgehend von Jimi Hendrix undCarlos Santana begannen die Jungs in ihren Anfangstagen damit, die zu jener Zeit in Nigeriavorherrschenden Sounds zu einem psychedelischen und schwergewichtigen Fusion-Monster zuamalgamieren. Da das College instrumententechnisch gut ausgestattet war und zudem das künstlerischeBestreben seiner Schüler förderte, fand Grotto beste Bedingungen zum Üben vor. Im Gegensatz zu vielenanderen nigerianischen Acts, die als Studiobands tätig waren, tingelte Grotto nach Beendigung der Schulzeitdurchs Land und bespielte sämtliche Hotspots Nigerias, teils mit prominenten Kollegen wie Fela Kuti, TeeMac, Sonny Okosun und Segun Bucknor. Derart eingespielt präsentierte Grotto Songs aus einem Guss. Unddas hört man "At Last" auch an. Für dessen Wiederveröffentlichung als CD und LP wurde das Album von SeeWhy Audio restauriert und von The Carverey remastered. Abgerundet wird die Nachpressung durch rareFotos und Interviews mit dem Leadgitarristen Soga Benson sowie dem Produzenten Odion Iruoje.
