Vocalist and mult- instrumentalist family theBroomfield's might be new to you but Deepfunk heads know the deal. The six Broomfield siblings (vocalist, Diane and her 5 brothers) released some of the best Rare groove 12s and 45s in the 1980s (Although this 45 was recorded in 1979) as well as recording with Betty Wright, KC and the Sunshine Band, Timmy Thomas, Little Beaver, Julio Iglesias, Michael Sterling and many, many more.Championed by Keb Darge and others on the Deepfunk scene in the early 2000s, this record has remained agonisingly elusive, despite being very popular as both sides are brilliant. So, with the help of Symphonical records we got in touch with Aaron and made this happen, look out for Aaron's 45 dropping soon as well.

We grabbed the reels from his brothers place on the East Coast and thought we couldn't miss the opportunity to get them transferred and hear what was on them....We wasn't disappointed!

Perfect Toy proudly welcomes new signing to its family: KORPIFUNK!Originating from southern Finland, KORPIFUNK is made of a bunch of musician friends who have fun making music. Whenever they spend time together to work on new tunes their approach is simple: to create organic music with a contemporary feel, using live instruments mixed with programmed sounds.On their debut EP you are going to discover the outcome of a fruitful collaboration of a handful of creative minds. Toni Lamberg acts as the producer but he also plays guitar, bass and synthesizer. On vocals and harmonica we have Toni Koskipuro, on trumpet Jarko Manninen and on keyboards Viljami Viippola. Tommi Veneskari on saxophone completes the line up. None of them is a beginner in the music field as each and everyone has worked in different bands and production teams since the mid 1990s.This EP started off from jam sessions over some looped drums with bass and saxophone. After the basic tracks were laid down vocal melodies, guitar lines and other ingredients were added to sweeten the arrangement. The whole process of doing these tracks were pretty one shot ideas. "We just tried to go on with the songs own feel and mood and tried to keep it rough and original", says Toni Lamberg. The creation of these tracks happened straight forward and basic ideas came up quickly by playing along. He adds: "That's basically our main idea of making music. We jam, pick up ideas from each other and develop them further until all people involved are happy with the result." And the result is indeed impressive.2017 is going to be an exciting year, not only for KORPIFUNK but for us at Perfect Toy too. We are extremely happy to have crossed paths with Toni and his fellas. This 7" is just the start of something exceptional, so stay tuned as there is more to come in the near future!

Release:2017 / US – Original
Genre:Organic Grooves
The year was 2001. Across the water in Brooklyn, a fiyah was starting. This time of political unrest gave birth to a vibrant New York City Afrobeat scene that was bubbling throughout the boro! In comes Trombonist, Toli Nameless with a newly formed vision: an 8-piece Afrobeat group, comprised ENTIRELY of women, called The Femm Nameless. These ladies took to the streets armed with their weapons of choice - their instruments. Led by Toli ( who recorded with Antibalas on their classic version of Willie Colon’s Che Che Colé ), The Femm Nameless picked up where the Godfather of Afrobeat, Fela Anikulapo Kuti left off, just after meeting Sandra Izsadore. They had a powerful and unmistakeable energy that could only come from a woman, or in this case, 8 women. But unless you were in Brooklyn at the time, you may have never heard of the Femm Nameless, let alone these three recordings that we are proud to bring to you today. Long defunct, the group disbanded after some active years of performing live and recording an incredible demo that never saw the light of day - until now. Kooyman Records dug into the vaults, mastered and unearthed these jams from Toli & The Femm Nameless the proper way, on a heavy weight piece of 10” vinyl! The record includes a dance floor monster- a cover of Nina Simone’s See Line Woman, flipped upside down, in fine Afrobeat style! The few DJs who had a demo version of the tune still blow up dance floors with it to this day! The ideas on the record were put together by Toli, along with Tom Brenneck (of The Dapkings, The Budos Band and The Menahan Street Band) and Ernesto Abreau (of Antibalas) . The record was recorded and engineered in East Flatbush, Brooklyn by Sydney Mills (of Steel Pulse).

Known by genre aficionados as one of the greatest singers and most riveting stage presences in soul music, Jackie Shane has remained largely unknown outside Toronto, where her career briefly flowered in the 1960s. Beyond her unmistakable gift of the gab, Shane is a pioneer of transgender rights, born in a male body but unabashedly living her entire life as a woman at a time when to do so seemed unthinkable. Any Other Way is the first artist-approved collection of Ms. Shane’s work, ollecting all six of her 45s and every highlight from the legendary 1967 live sessions at the Sapphire Tavern, including three mind blowing, previously- unreleased tracks. Rob Bowman’s 20,000 word essay is Jackie’s first communication with the public in nearly half a century, telling for the first time ever Jackie Shane’s story in her own words. This deluxe two album set is copiously illustrated with never-before- seen pictures from a career and a life unlike any other.

Die vierte Folge der "Hidden Musics"-Serie von Glitterbeat widmet sich den Pygmäen. Oder vielmehr einerspeziellen Volksgruppe aus Ruanda, die man den Pygmäen zuordnet. Eigentlich handelt es sich beiPygmäen um einen ethnologisch unbrauchbaren Sammelbegriff, der sich im 19. Jahrhundert für kulturellunterschiedliche Ethnien Zentralafrikas einbürgerte, die als Jäger und Sammler in den Regenwäldern lebenund eine relativ geringe Körpergröße besitzen. Lange war der Begriff unter den Waldvölkern negativ besetzt,inzwischen wird er aber identitätsstiftend verwendet. Gegenwärtig gehören nur noch 200.000 bis eine halbeMillionen Menschen den Pygmäen an. Sie sind vom sozialen Wandel, Alkoholismus, Krankheiten, Rassismusund der Umgestaltung und Zerstörung ihres traditionellen Lebensraums bedroht. "Why Did We Stop GrowingTall?" enthält ein Dutzend eigentümlich roher, aber dennoch berührender Stammes- und Jagdlieder, Duetteund Sologesänge aus den Grenzregionen Ruandas, die vor Ort mit traditionellen Saiteninstrumenten undeiner batteriebetriebenen Loop-Maschine aufgenommen und von Ian Breenan (Hanoi Masters, Zomba PrisonProject, Tinariwen) produktionstechnisch zu einem Album zusammengefügt wurden. Dabei streifen die SongsThemen wie Aids, Naturschutz, Krieg oder Heimat.

No slavish Fela Kuti copycats these, but rather Afrobeat and other specific African tempos and rhythms used as a blueprint, a buildingblock for new directions in Brazilian music.

Contrary to the songs name, this interpretation of a traditional Afro-Brasilian candomble song, appears to be forged from mythical lost amazonian gold.Recorded in Sao Paulo with an allstar cast of Arteria FM (on vocal duties), Salvador Araguaya (caressing the Viola Caipira) & Spaniol (stroking the Baixo), steered by Nicola's production prowess, this quartet delivers a melodic enhancement to the summer sun.As if the sun wasn't shining bright enough already, the single comes backed by a remarkable remixer ensemble procured from their duties as fellow sun-worshippers:Xique-Xique's Dragonfruit Mix is a wondrous journey full of surprising leaps and bounds, alternating between hypnotic electronics and organic song structure. Saving the best 'til last he raises the energy whilst keep the beats low and the vibes ecstatic. HIT !Crussen's creamy cocodub raises the energy whilst concentrating on a dubbed out groove, (that) classic Crussen bassline and carefully sliced & re-appropriated vocals.Finally in-house poster-boy Carrot Green's Granola mix combines disco, deep grainy bassines, juicy bells and signature flourishes into a bowl of magical mind-whirling hip-spinning edible sex.

Recorded over three sessions in 1968, “Bleak House” marks Terje Rypdals departure from psychedelic group The Dream and off to explore further territories. He would later become one of the most recognizable instrumentalist in European jazz, with releases on the ECM label filled to the brim with his exciting future-tundra guitar sounds.By this time in 1968, he was already in an almost unique position in the Norwegian music scene, at a crucial crossroads between the parallel galaxies of contemporary composition, modern jazz and progressive rock. With a go-ahead from Polydor, Rypdal set up in the studio with Jan Garbarek, Knut Riisnæs, Jon Christensen and Christian Reim (The Dream) to record his solo debut. It is an album that influenced a generation of innovative Norwegian artists and continues to do so to this day.This landmark reissue of this Norwegian classic got fully remastered from the original tapes and contains liner notes written by Rob Young (former editor of The Wire and author of Electric Eden).

As one of the most enigmatic figures of the 1970s Italian soundtrack and library music network Emma De Angelis and her short recording career provides thirsty fans of speedball psychedelic rock and drum heavy instrumental funk with a tight discography rivalling many of the long-standing bastions of the otherwise male-orientated business.Born in Rocca di Papa, near Rome, into a flourishing musical environment, Emma was the younger sister of future award winning composers Guido and Maurizio De Angelis, a duo who, under names like Oliver Onions and Dream Bags, would write chart-topping lyrical theme tunes for a wide range of Italian crime, Giallo and Spaghetti Western films featured alongside full scores by Ennio Morricone and the Magnetic System composers (Bixio Frizzi Tempera).With encouragement from her brothers, Emma, who would also write music under the pseudonym of Juniper, would record a tight clutch of solo-penned material and seldom credited studio contributions to Guido And Maurizio’s film commissions, such as the score for Giuliano Carnimeo’s ‘Simone e Matteo: Un gioco da ragazzi’ (aka ‘Convoy Buddies’). While simultaneously pursuing a career as an illustrator and set designer the De Angelis family contacts would lead Emma to the offices of Romano Di Bari, whose up-and-coming Flirt label was finding success providing custom-built mood music for use in TV and film. Alongside important composers like Alessandro Alessandroni, Gerardo Iacoucci and A. R. Luciani, the young Emma Di Angelis would record a small number of tracks for a compilation called ‘Underground Mood’ (credited in the small print to E De Angelis - not to be confused with Italian singer Edoardo De Angelis). It is from this rare LP that the record you are now holding is compiled. Within the Flirt family of labels Emma De Angelis would also share schedules with other important female composers such as Daniela Casa and Giulia ‘Kema’ De Mutiis - both of whom have appeared on dedicated Finders Keepers releases.The tracks on this record provide us with a rare glimpse into Emma De Angelis’ short musical career before she became a full time visual artist. With an unknown personnel or studio date it is easy to speculate a potential family jam in Piero Umiliani’s Sound Workshop studio in 1972. One only has to take a listen to Guido And Maurizio’s instrumental theme ‘Gangster Story’ from Enzo G. Castellari’s 1973 thriller ‘High Crime’ (which later appeared on Tarantino’s ‘Death Proof’ soundtrack) or the trippy title theme to Paolo Poeti’s kinky 1976 drama Inhibition to spot the family resemblance.

There is so much good music out there that you've never heard of. Bedroom musicians putting together records that never come out, or finally see the light of day after many years. Such is the case with Fru Assah Atanga aka Colonel Faat. He was born in Camaroon, but made the trek to Nigeria at 21 to learn how to play an instrument. That instrument would be the saxophone. Learning his craft he would then transition to play with several groups in a live capacity around Nigeria in various hotels and night clubs. Moving from Nigeria to Ghana he would would partake in a few recordings as well as recording four records in his own living room. None have ever been released. The first single he has released on Agogo Records is fantastic. "Balantinje" is a light, airy and funky track that is perfect for the summer dance floors and a total vibe out record. Great horns permeate throughout. Think Miriam Makeba and Hugh Masekela meet updated vibes for 2017. The spirit of the music is definitely there and right in front. There is also a remix of the track by Mankoora that is a little more down tempo but none the less funky. Now we are just waiting with baited breath for the rest of his music to surface.

ALEM (worldin Amharic) is the 2nd release in a series of collaborations between The Hoodna Orchestra and artist and performers from Ethiopia. The song was written and sung by the singer and poet Demisu Belete, to a tune by Ilan Smilan. It is an intense love song describing one's love as a cure to all pains and woes.Belete's singing style is heavily influenced by the great singers from the golden age of Ethiopian music, especially Mahmoud Ahmed and Tilahun Gesesse. Belete's deep voice, alongside the dynamic and groovy performance by the Hoodna orchestra, creates a powerful composition that sweeps the listeners away to a different time and place.The B-side is an Ethio-dub version of the song that features members of ADYABO Ensemble, a group that specializes in traditional Ethiopian music and Folklore.The song titled ALEM-DUB is an attempt at fusing old and new, tradition and Modernity. The result is a hypnotically groovy track, heavily painted in Bright psychedelic colors.The single will be released in a 7" vinyl format and will be launched at the Red Sea Jazz Festival Aug. 30th 2017 and in a series of special shows featuring DEMISU BELETE which will come to Israel especially for this occasion.

Since it's inception in 2013, 22a has continued to showcase emerging, underground UK talent. Having initially focused their output around a core group of south London producers - such as Mo Kolours, Al Dobson Jr and founder Tenderlonious - the label has now reached beyond the Channel for its latest release. Following hot on the heels of Tenderlonious's 'On Flute' mini album, 22a introduces us to a new extended family member, Neue Grafik. Located in Paris, Neue Grafik represents a generation of artists at the forefront of electronic music. Routing his influences in a heavy 70s feel, his latest EP 'Soul Conspiracy' invites the listener to explore a fusion of live and programmed electronic music. Grafik makes good use of live instrumentation on this EP, featuring plenty of Fender Rhodes and lead synth, as well as a sprinkling of live drums and a strong guest vocal from the soulful likes of Wayne Snow. Tunes like ‘Modern Man’ and ‘Thanos Interlude’ adopt an inspired broken beat approach, reminiscent of early Bugz productions, whilst the title track ‘Soul Conspiracy’ has a distinct 22a quality, fusing classic house beats with a lo-fi boogie feel. The EP is a statement to 22a’s continued effort to re-define musical boundaries and will be a fine addition to an ever growing catalogue of great music!

Side A opens with ‘Cerasee Doctor,’ a classic Mo Kolours production. Hip Hop meets Dub Reggae, with a catchy vocal loop throughout, equipped with a healthy dollop of dub sirens – this one is sure to grace many a soundsystem worldwide! ‘Margoze’ follows and takes the listener on a journey to West Africa where cowbells and syncopated rhythms take lead whilst the distant sound of local dialogue blends seamlessly in and out of the mix, rooting it deep in its African foundation. Side B begins with ‘Goya,’ which brings about a fusion of traditional Vietnamese folk mixed with snippets of slap bass to create a collage of worldly sounds – a technique synonymous with the acclaimed producer. The EP finishes with the title track ‘Meroe,’ where Mo Kolours once again effortlessly fuses ancient and modern sounds to create a dancefloor winner. Its up-tempo rhythm keeps heads nodding with it’s low pulsing bass line rumbling beneath, whilst tribal chants bring euphoric moments to the mix leaving the listener feeling positively uplifted. In conclusion it’s a mini EP that packs a big punch! And most importantly it sees the return of a heralded music maker. This release is limited to 300 copies so don’t sleep!

As told by the artist himself Serenade to a Bus Seat is a kind of autobiographical album, the bus is indeed the metaphoric image of the life of the jazz orchestra in constant movement. “On this LP, Clark Terry comes into his own. It does not seem exaggeration to say that a few more like this will establish him as a truly major jazz figure.”

We are officially under exclusive rights reissuing a very special privetly pressed 45, "Silver Satin" by Axis. Originally released back in 1984, Axis was a short-lived band formed in California by guitar player/vocalist Byron Bordeaux. Back in 80s, record was never officially distributed, with only a couple of hundred 45s made, and sold exclusively at their shows.Byron recorded a good deal of demo tracks, which for the next 30 years would go unreleased, all stuck on a pile of 8-track and cassette tapes. You can find one of these tracks on the flipside of this 7" - "Runaway Love" was completely recorded and performed by Byron circa 1986.Following the band's dissolution, Byron continued performing, eventually ending up playing alongside the likes of Bobby Womack, Buddy Miles and The Gap Band.Fast forward three decades later, "Silver Satin" is a sought after record on the collectors market that when found, goes for triple figures on eBay, Discogs and the like.

It's time for another 7" foot-stomping bonanza from Rocafort Records, digging deep into the rich New Orleans repertoire of the Carbo family. All brothers were heavily involved in the 60s Crescent City funk scene, so tight and 'on the one' that it's easy to understand why Hank suspects a bit of plagiarism from the Godfather himself."Fox in a mini skirt" is slice of soulful cheek and attitude, based on foxy beauty who once slunk across the dance floor at one of his gigs. Popular on the Northern Soul scene, it matches vocal urgency with a driving beat fuelled along by manic drums, guitars and horns. The irresistible background hey hey hey's and funky funky broadway's make it instantly memorable and immediately danceable."Bad Luck" (not to be confused with the Harold Melvin & the Blue Notes classic) is a slower paced funk stinker, screaming out JB horns and wah wah guitars à la 'Ain't it funky now'. In keeping with the depth of New Orleans songwriting, the lyrics are worth a listen and reveal a heartfelt plea "If it weren't for bad luck, I wouldn't have no luck at all". In fact, the whole song is based on a spell of unfortunate circumstances involving Hank's sideswiped new car and an erroneous warrant for his arrest. However, the only real crime committed here is that at 2'22", this track is shockingly over too soon!

Now he releases his new album in cooperation with Alpha Pup Records. The genre-defying and otherworldly core six-piece band consists of the best musicians taking over the scene today-including saxophonist Kamasi Washington, trombonist Ryan Porter, keyboardist Brandon Coleman, pianist Cameron Graves, and drummer Tony Austin. On “Uprising” they are joined by trumpeter Dontae Winslow and the late saxophonist Zane Musa along with a full orchestra and choir.

Improvised spiritual jazz from Joe Henderson and Alice Coltrane."The Elements" was originally recorded in 1973 and marked a move away from the post bop that Henderson was known for. Working with Coltrane on piano and harp, violinist Michael White, Charlie Haden on bass, percussionist Kenneth Nash and Baba Duru Oshun on tablas, the veteran saxophonist explored themes inspired by the four elements. The musicians brought in strains of Latin American, Indian, and Native American music, while imbuing the recordings with spirituality and soulfulness. Four tracks in all.

Digger's favorite featuring the jazz-funk classic "Celestial Blues."Harlem Bush Music was originally recorded in 1970 and 1971, and is infused with the fury of the Vietnam War protest and the Civil Rights movement. Led by the powerful vocals of Andy Bey, the album tackles themes that are just as relevant today as when the music was recorded. It's an adventurous recording that pushes against the boundaries of jazz using elements of spoken word and free jazz to communicate its message. Five tracks in all.

Tenderlonious lays down his fute for this LP and goes back to the MPC, with help from the illusive Dennis Ayler. Comprised of ten cuts 'Brick City' takes the listener on a journey through Afro-House, Funk, Jazz, Rare Groove, Boogie and Broken Beat - something for everyone here! Brick City (4am)' and Buterfy' groove efortlessly whilst synth leads interject over tasty chords, all the while being supported by solid bass lines - these two will undoubtedly set a strong pace on the dancefoor. 'Funky Booda' does exactly what it says on the tn, it's a straight Funk classic! Its infectous groove and soaring leads are sure to have you clapping your hands and stomping your feet. 'Be Ur Friend' is a fery Afro-House number - reminiscent of one of Tenderlonious's early releases 'Bob's Riddim.' There's also more hip-hop inspired selectons like 'Brick City (4pm)' or 'Pepe's Walk,' which bump hard and have strong traces of Sa-Ra and J Dilla infuence. The record comes complete with quirky skits like 'Bootsy' and 'Ferndale Gateaux,' which blend in and out between the other tunes allowing the record to fow efortlessly from beginning to end. There is something for everyone on this album. It's the kind of record you can play at home from start to fnish or take out to the club as an essental dancefoor fller.

Release:2017 / EU – Original
Genre:Organic Grooves
Japanese saxophone transgressor Akira Sakata meets with his long-time collaborator and Fender Rhodes virtuoso Giovanni Di Domenico, Portuguese guitarist Manuel Mota, and drummer Mathieu Calleja for a session recorded at Les Ateliers Claus in Brussels.Named after the Jomon period of the Japanese prehistory - when Japan was inhabited by a hunter-gatherer culture rich in tools, clay pottery, and jewelry made from bone and stone - the record features three tracks: Jomon (縄文), Kaen (火焔), and Dogu (土偶). The Dogu (literally: "clay figures") were small humanoid and animal figurines made during the Jomon period for religious purpose: it may have been believed that illnesses could be transferred into the Dogu, then destroyed, clearing the illness, or any other misfortune. The record itself is a musical healing ritual invoking a powerful demon with Sakata's throat singing, unleashing then slowly hypnotizing it in the second half of the album, putting it back into its vault before it's too late. Beautiful artwork made with Sakata's hand-painted Kanji characters.

Genre:Organic Grooves
Featuring some of the most innovative players from Beirut, Cairo and Istanbul, Karkhana met for the first time in Beirut in 2014, bringing together influences from the three major experimental music scenes of the region and beyond. Through their live shows, the band’s seven multi-instrumentalists build a transcendental atmosphere developing what could possibly be called free Middle Eastern music. Shades and traces of shaabi, tarab, sufi and much more are heard in the distinct blend of free jazz and psychedelic krautrock they’ve created.Recorded and mixed by Matt Bordin at Outside Inside Studio - in only two days - and mastered by Carl Saff at Saff Mastering Studio in Chicago, For Seun Matta is the first studio album by the band, following Nafas (Omlott, 2016) and Live At Metro Al-Madina (Sagittarius A-Star, 2015). Featuring Sharif Sehnaoui on electric guitar, Sam Shalabi (The Dwarfs of East Agouza) on oud and electric guitar, Maurice Louca (The Dwarfs of East Agouza) on organ and synth, Umut Çağlar (Konstrukt) on zurna, gralla, bamboo flutes, and percussion, Mazen Kerbaj on trumpet, Tony Elieh on electric bass, and with the recent addition of Michael Zerang on drums.“I wish I could track down more of this tantalising outfit’s music to share...This Middle Eastern supergroup first got together to celebrate the music of Egyptian surf guitarist Omar Khorshid – who was also a key figure in Oum Kalthoum’s orchestra – but their remit has expanded somewhat and now they’re fully committed to outer-perimeter explorations in Krautrock-leaning, cosmic free jazz” (John Doran, The Guardian)
Maria Monti - Il Bestiario

Release:1974 / EU – Reissue
Genre:Organic Grooves
Deluxe vinyl reissue of Maria Monti's legendary Il Bestiario, a prime example of the avant-garde art-song of the 1970s. Knew for her renderings of Italian popular songs, Maria Monti is an Italian singer and actress with a noteworthy career: cabaret singer in the ‘60s, ambitious avant-garde folk artist in the ‘70s, and starring in films by directors as such as Sergio Leone (Fistful of Dynamite) and Bernardo Bertolucci (1900). Il Bestiario is a near perfect emblem of the fascinating territory gained through collaboration. It enlisted the radical poet Aldo Braibanti as its lyricist, features arrangements and synthesizer from Alvin Curran (Musica Elettronica Viva), the baritone saxophone of Roberto Laneri (Prima Materia), as well as the soprano saxophone of jazz legend Steve Lacy. The result is absolutely stunning, musically unique within the respective outputs of its participants’ long and noted careers. Unquestionably one of the most beautiful and neglected albums of its decade.

Genre:Organic Grooves
Recorded in a shaky makeshift chicken shack in rural Maryland, Link Wray’s eponymous 1971 solo album is a compelling and forward-looking piece of honest, handmade Americana. This album is vastly different from his previous work, foregoing instrumentals entirely. Instead, Wray, left with only one lung following a bout with tuberculosis in 1956, gives us his raw voice, full of spit and vinegar, as he blends elements of country, rock ‘n’ roll, roots, folk and gospel marked with fuzzy guitar and booming percussion. He kicks off with a track, “La De Da”, that may be the greatest song the Stones never wrote. Elsewhere, the single “Fallin’ Rain” channels Dylan at his most political, with lyrics about “stabbings and shootings and young men dying all around.” Link Wray proved to be the only album that the guitarist issued in his own name to hit the American charts during his nearly 50-year recording career. Although it didn’t receive much critical acclaim at the time of its release, Link Wray has seen a resurgence in recent years and developed a cult following, with artists from Nick Cave to The Neville Brothers recording versions of its tracks.Link Wray’s musical journey began early, with his father Fred taking up the family music business. Link, along with brothers Vernon and Doug began playing together professionally in 1942, their rowdy instrumental single “Rumble” charting at number 16 in 1958. Following a string of hits on Philadelphia-based Swan Records, Vernon began to serve as the family’s producer, eventually starting his own studio; first in the basement of his home and then–after his wife Evelyn complained about the noise–in a converted shack on the property. It was there that Link, Vernon and producer Steve Verroca found a sound that marked “a return to simplicity.” This carefully remastered reissue will take you right back to that chicken shack, and to sessions so electric you can almost feel the atmosphere.This is the first reissue of this classic album.
