Genre:Organic Grooves
Here at Quantize we simply love confounding expectations 'cos, guess what? We love all kinds of music and don't like to be stereotyped. But this one even surprised the hell out of us - so much so that we figured it deserved a 7" vinyl release in tribute to the original format."Think (About It)" was originally recorded 45 years ago in the summer of 1972 by the fiery Lyn Collins. Produced by the Godfather Of Soul, James Brown, it barely scraped into the RnB Top 10 at the time and normally would have faded into time as just another great James Brown produced record but in 1987, it started to get sampled by a new generation of Hip-Hop artists like Roxanne Shante and Robe Base and DJ E-Z Rock. Suddenly the world woke up to the possibilities of sampling and since that point, "Think (About It)" has been sampled 1908 times and is the No.3 most-sampled record of all time. So we decided to cut a new version of it with real musicians and one of the few vocalists that would be capable of matching Lyn Collins firepower - Dance Music's diva supreme, the incredible Barbara Tucker. We wanted Barbara to really cut loose on this and she didn't disappoint. And yes, those are real keyboards, real guitar and real horns. Believe us, this session was off the scale! So when we finally got our breath back we decided we HAD to get this out on a 45 on its 45th anniversary! It seemed the most appropriate way to do justice to a record that simply jumps outta the grooves.We believe "Think (About It)" will have universal appeal pretty much everywhere since the song is now implanted within the DNA of dance music across the world.

"Dialogue", the new album by Aaron Abernathy, sees the artist presentinghis side of the story in nine interwoven tracks. The album marks adistinctly different conceptual approach, where the artist lays flat hisvulnerabilities as an American black man in 2017, discussing hot-buttonissues of economics, segregation, and racial politics.Dialogue was composed, produced, and arranged by Abernathy, andcreates a modern take of the classic soul sounds of the 1970s, with a nodto the socially conscious themes found on albums such as Marvin Gaye’sWhat’s Going On, Sly & The Family Stone’s There’s a Riot Goin On, orCurtis Mayfield’s eponymous debut album. Nine songs are sequencedand mixed to flow together seamlessly, and Abernathy’s skills as aproducer bring a consistency despite varied tempos and moods.Aaron Abernathy, is a jazz pianist/soul singer and multi-talented entertainer. Born in Cleveland, Ohio, Abernathy comes from a long-line of historical pioneers including Civil Rights Leader, Rev. Ralph David Abernathy and student of the same high school music program as the late R&B great Gerald Levert. He joined the ranks of artists like Donny Hathaway and Roberta Flack as a graduate from the prestigious music program at Howard University, where he sharpened his piano playing and musicianship by majoring in jazz piano. With outstanding talents as both a pianist and a vocalist, he has acted as musical director for global touring acts Black Milk and Slum Village and collaborated with Grammy-nominated artists including Jack White, The Foreign Exchange, and Eric Roberson.Fall of 2016, Abernathy released his solo album "Monologue," that was met with critical acclaim from the likes of Pitchfork, Bandcamp Daily, Soultracks, and Saint Heron.

Legendary James Brown's protégée Martha High teams up with Osaka Monaural to pay homage to “JB’s Funky Divas” in her new album “Tribute to My Soul Sisters”. The “funky diva” Martha High has been an integral part of James Brown’s life and career for more than 30 years: she was his backing vocalist, hair stylist, payroll master and his always loyal and reliable confidant. After a lifetime spent shoulder to shoulder with the Godfather of Soul, she flew to Tokyo and teamed up with Japanese funk ambassadors Osaka Monaurail to pay homage to the great Soul Sisters of the JB’s Revue. “Tribute to My Soul Sisters” drops next November the 17th on Record Kicks. This unique collaboration gives new life to 13 soulful pearls, masterfully interpreted as only an original Funky Diva can do. To name a few: “Think (About It)”, made famous by the female preacher Lyn Collins, “Mama’s Got a Bag of Her Own”, Anna King’s answer to JB “Papa’s Got a Brand New Bag”, “This Is My Story”, of which she recorded the original version with The Jewels and the soul classic “Answer to Mother Popcorn” by Vicki Anderson. "I looked up to these ladies of soul" says Martha, "Given the opportunity and the pleasure to perform their songs, is my way of saying: thank you, you're not forgotten. To record the music of the Funky Divas would mean a lot to Mr Brown. He always wanted the world to know he had powerful women on stage that could hold his crowd while he was off the stage; they were just as powerful and funky as he was."

Mr. Clean & The Cleansers' "Karate" was one of them and remained their sole 45 for the label. It was co-written by Ron Buford who is best known for his own recordings on Camelot. Those of you who are familiar with his playing will certainly recognize him on the Hammond B3. As most of the 45s on Camelot they are not that easy to turn up so here you have one hell of a re-issue.

Instrumental versions of Gabriel’s Stones Throw Records debut Jardín now available on limited edition wax. Gabriel Garzón-Montano’s formidable skills have come to fruition on Jardín in his Stones Throw debut. “This album came out of wanting to make music that reminds people how beautiful life is and how delicate their heart is,” he said. “I’ve always wanted to make music that is healing, comforting, and funky. I named the album Jardín hoping for it to create a space for healing when people put it on. “A garden is full of life, growth and beauty,” Gabriel said of choosing that unifying image as the title for his new album. “It makes me think of green and white and all the colors as they appear in different flowers.” That vivid spectrum bursts forth on Jardín itself and the album contains references to fruit of all sorts, sour mango, juicy tangerines and sweet peaches. From the heartache and aching vocals that float over the dusty drums of “Crawl” to the stutter-step thump of “Bombo Fabrika” to the high falsetto he nails on “Octave,” Garzón-Montano proves himself to already be one of 2017’s biggest breakout talents.

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.

Another 1960s 7inch soul gem, unearthed and held up to the light courtesy of Rocafort Records. The heroine of this story is Atlanta-born Delia "Dee Dee" Gartrell, schooled in the art of gospel and jazz, but banned by her mother to sing any R'n'B…. that is until Delia met the Mighty Hannibal, a powerhouse bluesy soul producer and future husband who put her up where she belonged and got her singing about stuff that her mother wouldn't have approved of.Mid-tempo stomper, 'I must be doing something right', is an irresistible sassy classic, originally the B side of the single 'If you got what it takes (they can't take what you got)' released on Maverick Records. The horns and drums tease the toe-tapping rhythm along while Delia belts out with raw fire about not being a great looker, cook or housecleaner for her man, "but when it's time for sleeping, he thinks I'm something outtasight. I must be doing something right". Cheeky in spirit, chunky in swing. Full of all the urgency and feistiness you'd expect from a repressed southern soul vocalist.Written by Delia and Hannibal, 'Fight fire with fire' boasts a similar production style but this time with a prominent electric guitar riff, emotive strings and heavenly backing vocals. Describing the cheating man who's gonna get exactly what he dishes out, Delia reads out the riot act with more punchy promise than threat.A must for all 7inch soul collectors, a thing of rare beauty.

Between the end of the 70's and the early 80's, a new sound appeared in London and its surroundings, a unique mix of Funk, Jazz-Funk and Disco labelled as Britfunk. Characterized by its raw energy that can put the needle In The Red, this up-tempo sound was a match for the UK's dancers and Jazz-Funk clubs. This first release by French label Chuwanaga features some of the most exciting, rare and powerful tracks from that era compiled by the Parisian DJ and activist Saint-James, with bands such as Equa, Potion, Inch by Inch, Congress, Index and Spookey. It features also an insert with an in-depth focus on this musical era. These young British musicians were equally inspired by the American Jazz-Funk productions and by Dub music and Reggae pushed by the Afro-Caribbean community who were at the heart of Britfunk’s development. They gave Funk a unique British flavor. However, more than just a music genre or an enclosed expression of black Britishness, it was part of a genuine musical and social movement with its own dedicated labels, fashion sense and most importantly its own set of values that fueled the whole scene. Britfunk built itself within a multicultural evolution: black people, white people, straight and queer, all dancing in the same room to the same loud sound.

What started out as a simple email exchange between a young, hungry beatmaker and a seasoned player in the worlds of jazz and midwestern indie hip-hop, has resulted in a vibrant record nearly a decade in the making. On one side of Let It Out sits Miles Bonny, a long time musical collaborator who spent his youth soaking in powerful musical moments in NYC under the tutelage of his trumpet-slinging father, Francis Bonny, and later as a teen immersed in New York’s busy indie-hip-hop scene. As he grew up Miles cemented himself a niche in the Midwest, most notably in Lawrence, Kansas where tireless forays into beatmaking led to the founding of the much-loved INnatesounds Crew and record label, as well as a series of solo releases and collaborative projects. Eventually shifting his focus to his own vocal stylings, it wasn’t long before Miles caught the attention of the international music community, including the young, curious ears of the at time unknown, soon-to-be future R&B sensation Ta-Ku. Through a series of emails and conversations, Ta-Ku asked to send Miles beats and the two planned to work on a series of tracks. From there the pair developed a friendship that was built upon mutual encouragement and a creative admiration between two artists both navigating their own personal and professional responsibilities. The Let It Out EP, released on Brooklyn’s Bastard Jazz Recordings, acts as the culmination of such an intimate and organic journey. Recorded by Miles in Kansas City during a time he was experiencing the oft-turbulent tasks of true adulthood, the record focus on the life of a young father, underpinned by how we often bottle up difficult emotions and creativity when the pressures of today’s complicated world reach fever pitch. Brimming with emotive, intimate lyrics from Miles spread amidst Ta-Ku’s soul-drenched beat work and syrupy future grooves, the EP will hit close to home for anyone whose daily lives calls for a much needed dose of personal reflection and chilled-out decompression

Prior to Phase 7’s residency, the hotel had only ever hired mainland acts such as the Burgundy Express and the Lewis and Clark Expedition.This 7-inch was initially released in May 2017 on black vinyl as a collaborative release between Japan’s DJ Muro and Aloha Got Soul. The Japanese edition — released on DJ Muro & DJ Nori’s Captain Vinyl label — sold out in about a week. It was limited to 500 copies.This US-pressed version is available as a limited run of 500 copies on green vinyl. “So Good To Be In Love” is an uplifting Brazilian style disco-funk tune composed by Phase 7’s Les Fernandez. “Could It Be Love” mellows things out with an original soul groover written by bandmate Sandy Pascual.

Instead, the 12 songs on the new album convey an eclectic blend of genres leaping from the many musical lives he has lived from following his evangelical Gospel-singing mother on tour as a child in Michigan to rapping in Atlanta, forming a garage band with The Black Lips’ Cole Alexander to singing back-up for Cee Lo Green. Through these experiences he fully embraces life’s darkest intricacies conjuring dynamic, addictive melodies.Face Your Fear features production by Harding, Sam Cohen, and Danger Mouse and was recorded in New York at Danger Mouse’s 30th Century Studio.

Mr. O.T. Sykes is often and fondly called ‘The Singing Dentist’ but it’s far from a joke. Dr. Sykes, who till this day never gave up his day job, chooses to do only top quality music. He will not sell out to an already overcrowded pop-market as this extremely well respected and very soulful LP from 1981 so eloquently proves. Within an international circle of connoisseurs O.T.Sykes ranks among the very best of soul singers. This is true soul music to the max and is written, played and produced by Jeffrey Singleton (The Frat / Frat Band / Autofrat) and Mr. Sykes himself, plus the cream of the rich music scene in Memphis, TN. Original copies are now really hard to come by so this long overdue and most carefully prepared reissue is more than welcome. - Marc Janssen

Genre:Organic Grooves
As 2015 was wrapping up, an unknown outfit called Joon Moon took the music world by surprise with its first single Chess. The four cuts on the Call Me EP, a beguiling mix of pop and soul, electronic music and jazz, melancholy and elegy, heralded a forthcoming album that was bound to leave a blast radius on landing. And while the name and vibe of the project evokes a purple veloured, oldHollywood universe, Joon Moon was borne out of a resolutely contemporary meeting of the minds - the kind the can only happen amidst our jetsetting music scene. After ten years of touring the world playing double bass with Marc Collin's Nouvelle Vague ensemble, alongside excursions into house music on the Yellow Productions Art of Disco compilations, not to mention co-producing Florent Marchet's Bamby Galaxy album, it was time for songwriter/producer/renaissance man Julien Decoret to dedicate his heart and soul to a new challenge. With Raphaël Chassin, (Hugh Coltman, Vanessa Paradis, Pauline Croze) on drums, helping out with the production and arrangements, and Sébastien Trouvé as sound engineer, Decoret set out on his retromodern Joon Moon mission, laying out the contours of a world where trip-hop, jazz, soul and electronic music live side by side, sharing their joys and sorrows. The only missing element was that one last bit of magic, a voice that could take the project to ever-loftier heights. Enter Krystle Warren. She had worked with Rufus Wainwright, and Scritti Politti's Green Gartside, and had made forays into house music herself by providing vocals to two cuts off Hercules and Love Affair's, The Feast of the Broken Heart. That's not even mentioning her own band, Krystle Warren and The Faculty - and its three albums - which display her impressive grasp of soul music, folk, blues... Joon Moon's first album Moonshine Corner, which stole part of its name from an Austin watering hole that had become a haunt during its first American mini-tour, is the sound of four people meeting at an unlikely crossroads named Melancholy. Recorded using modern studio techniques along with vintage 60s and 70s instruments, Moonshine Corner places its chips on a subtly modern vibe through twelve lovelorn tracks that weave themselves around pop and trip hop, folk and soul, jazz licks and electronic washes, digging their own groove in the river bed dug by years and years of exposure to Radiohead, Neil Young, and Zero 7. Joon Moon is also, lest we forget, a project that takes on its full magnitude on stage. The barebones live setup (drums, piano) allows Krystle's powerful voice to fill the space, swaying from nervy to more subdued laments, hopping around tessitura in the blink of an eye. Consider the live french version of Radiohead's I Might Be Wrong, which transports you to the fictional smoky jazz club where forgotten, old 50s star Joon Moon holds court behind the microphone.

In 1969 a local Philly group, The Intrigues, hit pay dirt with their self penned song “In A Moment”, initially released on their own Bullet label. This Thom Bell and Bobby Martin song was later picked up by the NYC Yew label and made it to #10 in the R&B charts that same year. An album entitled “In A Moment” and a further five Yew 45’s followed although none of these were able to replicate the success of their initial hit. Following two 45 releases on GRT’s Janus label in 1972, The Intrigues, Alfred (Al) Brown, Ronald Hamilton, James Harris and James Lee Jr later disbanded. Once again Al Brown was looking to form another vocal group and fortuitously for him found another Philly outfit, The Coalitions of “Instead How Are You” (and later Soul Junction) fame, who having lost their own lead singer Tony (Talent) Anderson, decided to merge with Al to form a new version of The Intrigues. This new look Intrigues featuring Al Brown, Alan Williams, Stephen Ferguson, Milton Williams and Bruce Fauntleroy who began to perform shows arranged for them by a New Jersey booking agent by the name of Lucille White. It is reputedly believed that Ms White was later responsible for introducing The Intrigues to record producer James “Channey” Turner a colleague of brothers Mervin “Lyric” and Melvin “Mystro” Steals. The Steals brothers former members of the group The Four Perfections of “I’m Not Strong Enough” (Partytime) fame, went on to become one of Philadelphia’s most prolific songwriting teams, their credits include, Magic Night’s perennial favourite “If You And I Had Never Met” (Roulette), “I’ll Do Anything For You, Ecstasy”, Passion And Pain (Roulette) a song later covered by Lee McDonald on his desirable Debbie Records “Sweet Magic” album. But the real jewel in the crown of the Steals songbook is their 1972 Spinners million seller “Could It Be I’m Falling In Love” (Atlantic). The Steals brothers are currently producing in collaboration with Detroit main man McKinley Jackson a new CD EP project on the Chairman Of The Board (Featuring Ken Knox).During 1978 The Intrigues under the Steals brothers and James “Channey” Turner supervision entered Bill Holland’s New Jersey Studio to record the five featured Steals Brothers penned songs. Although never issued back in the day the recent discovery of a studio tape by Alan Williams has at last given us the opportunity to give these fine Philly soul songs the exposure they richly deserve. It is Alan Williams who provides the lead vocals on the uplifting title track “If The Shoe Fits” as well as the other two movers “AM To The PM” and “Give Her The Love That She Needs”. With Milton Williams leading on the sumptuous ballad “Let Me Love You Tonight” and Stephen Ferguson too showing his prowess as a balladeer on “You Are So Dear To Me”. Philly Soul at it’s very best!

16,99 €*
Release:2017 / US – Original
Genre:Organic Grooves
Limited to 250 copies.Righteous funk from the Smoke & Smile Band – really sounding great on "Africa" – a cut that almost feels like it was pulled from some Roy Ayers sessions of the late 70s! The tune's upbeat, has great keyboards, and this chunky funky groove that's as righteous as the lyrics! "Black High" is great too – a wicked bit of 70s-styled jazz funk, with a nicely edgey set of horn solos in the middle! When's the full album? We can't wait!

7" | 2017 | US | Original (Funk Night)
16,99 €*
Release:2017 / US – Original
Genre:Organic Grooves
Limited to 250 copies.A sweet onomatopoeic groove from Iron Souls – a funky instrumental that really seems to have the riffing guitar making the "shibba shabba" sound of the title – while also getting nicely fuzzy and distorted, as funky drums keep a razor-sharp energy at the core! The guitar's equally distorted on "Jungle" – and the drums are maybe a bit too – almost as if they've been played tight and funky, but spun backwards – although maybe that's just our ears!

Genre:Organic Grooves
A glance at the discs, which rocked through the charts under the simple name of “Isley Brothers” will give you an idea of how a »long-lasting and self-generative family enterprise« (The Times) became a true soul factory. After a brisk start with popular rock’n’roll music, similar to that which a large number of black vocal groups turned out in the Fifties, followed a long march from one record company to another – all of whom were hard pushed to equate the dynamic musicality of these brothers with the 'own sound' of their productions. After hopping from one record label to the next, and not even getting a long-lasting break with the potent Motown label Tamla, golden days arrived when they set up their own label – T-Neck.Amidst the turmoil created by strong competition from superb studio albums, the Isleys landed a smash hit in 1975 with "The Heat Is On", an album which achieved double platinum status with its collection of perfectly written numbers. Powerful, funky volleys ("Fight The Power"), gyrating riffs as a launch pad for harmonious vocals and a creative solo ("The Heat Is On") go their own way, which is also apparent in the bell-like, airy ballads that swing along tastefully – quite without the sugar-sweet strings so popular at that time.This Speakers Corner LP was remastered using pure analogue components only, from the master tapes through to the cutting head. All royalties and mechanical rights have been paid.

Beware! What theBig Bear Revuelaid down in the studio back in the day is a boogaloo-mod-funk monster of the highest order. Here is a little story for you. We first heard about this 45 when it was offered on ebay more than ten years ago. A sound sample accompanied the listing but we missed to save it onto our computer. Many years later we managed to get a copy of this disc without remembering the songs. All we had kept in mind was that one side was a really good funk instrumental. Finally, when we put the disc onto our turntable we could not believe our ears. What was coming out of the speaker was a beast. We remember it as it was yesterday. Hopefully you experience the same thing when dropping the needle toBig Bearfor the first time. Pow!

When it comes to living legends in the Texas and Latin Music pantheon, few have been at it longer and are more revered by their fans and peers than soul vocalist and Mexican-American songwriter and bandleader Sunny Ozuna. He became a star right out of high school in the late ‘50s and hasn’t looked back in the six decades since.Among countless other honors and notable achievements, Sunny was the first Latino artist to appear on Dick Clark’s “American Bandstand” (in 1963). Songs like “Put Me In Jail,” “Talk To Me,” “Should I Take You Home,” “My Dream” and “Smile Now, Cry Later” still bring crowds to their feet throughout the Southwest and California and around the world at “oldies” and “lowrider soul” events. And after releasing dozens of albums since the mid-1960s (in Spanish and English), Sunny still keeps a busy schedule and loves performing as much as he did as a teenager. His classic 45s regularly change hands for hundreds of dollars among collectors around the world, affirming his timeless appeal.This new compilation on Brooklyn’s acclaimed Big Crown label is a lovingly curated selection of songs from the years 1966 to 1972. All compositions were originally released on Sunny’s Key-Loc label, formed after his national star had been established, so he could have control of his own musical destiny. With Sunny hits – a mix of originals and some great covers thrown in Mr. Brown Eyed Soul is an excellent celebration of Sunny’s amazing body of work, and a perfect introduction for newcomers. Produced in full collaboration and cooperation with Ozuna himself, the LP gatefold packaging includes liner notes by Texas Music scholar and archivist Ramon Hernandez, and features dozens of rare photos provided by Sunny himself.

Release:2017 / EU – Original
Genre:Organic Grooves
Given the success of Volumes 1 & 2 it would have been rude for Mako & Mr Bristow not to follow-up with a Stank Soul Edits Vol. 3 so that is precisely what they have done. And this time they're hitting you with both barrels of the sister-funk shotgun. On the A-side, is "How Strong Is Your Booty", which re-tools a horns-toting southern soul ballad into a sho' nuff, dancefloor anthem while on the flip, a different diva's late-night love-song to her man becomes raunchy, stone-cold banger So Glad. Oohh, mama's got a bag of her own !
