Austin Boogie Crew Records is proud to present our newest 45 release: the solo vinyl debut of San Francisco’s own Trailer Limon (Dan Meisenheimer).

This solo 45 features two choice cuts with appearances from West Coast heavy hitters E. Live and B. Bravo.Limon lays down a fantastic blend of modern funk and soul sounds on “Love Don’t Pay The Bills,” a love song with a layered subtext. Defined by its catchy vocals, juicy guitar, and addictive Rhodes keys, this killer cut is sure to have them flocking to the dance floor on cue. Relevant to today and funky in every way.“Dancing With Somebody” is a sleek and sexy mid-tempo delight where Limon croons about dancing with a stranger while another lover is on his mind.

Check out this nice reissue of David Porter’s soul classic “I'm Afraid The Masquerade Is Over”.This is a must have record and supplies are extremely limited. Long out of print and extremely sought after, David Porter's "I'm Afraid The Masquerade Is Over" gets a proper re-issue on 45, but with a special twist. First released in 1972, this groundbreaking masterpiece was mostly overlooked by the masses of that generation. However, twenty plus years later, hip hop producers would revive newfound interests in this cut (and Porter's other works) after sampling bits & pieces of it for some of the most defining songs of the mid 90's and early 2000's (“Who Shot Ya”, “Duel Of The Iron Mic”, “It's Over”, etc). For this special edition, the original multi-track session was resurrected from the archives, re-polished and re-edited into a brand new mix for your listening pleasure. Familiar fans will go emoji crazy once they get a taste of the exclusive new version that boasts new breaks, alternate takes and a louder, fuller instrumental presence among other goodies, creating fresh opportunities for beats and lives mixes. Pushing the 9 minute mark, parts 1 & 2 are presented between 2 sides, presenting the all of music in i's entire glory. Original pressings of "I'm Afraid The Masquerade Is Over" are not easy to come by. Own this collector's item while you can. "Must have" vinyl for DJ's, producers and anyone else on the hunt.

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).

Eastern sounds, ritual horns and assorted metal banging and scrapping add to the whole mix for a landmark sound that will evolve in delirious acid passages, hypnotic bass riffing, stoned funk beats, dubbed-out passages and Rino De Filippi trade-mark collage and sound manipulation make up to a really unique listening experience that submerges and puzzles the unexpecting listener.

Limited edition of 500 copies only!The world of Italian library music is a confusing, mysterious and expensive one. It's confusing as some tracks appear across different libraries, some appear in the UK or in France. It's mysterious, because there is little documentation about anything, old labels still emerge out of nowhere, and often in Italy no one knows who owns what or why or how. And it's expensive to buy original Italian library records, even more expensive if they are good. One of the most collectible and consistently entertaining Italian labels was SR, set up as part of the Sermi Cable Company in the late 1960s. This is the compilation of music from that very company. Many of the music from that original catalogue is now owned by Cometa. But not all of it. Bearing that in mind Cometa believes this is the best compilation you could put together using the resources available. The music is incredible, beautiful and finally affordable. Killer percussion, superb jazz, odd global sound, beautiful library music.

Trigemino were founded in 2007 by Alessandro Nanni (Drums), Francesco Resta (Guitar) and Riccardo Tulipani (Bass) aiming to envision, conceive and produce instrumental music strongly inspired by Italian cinematography of detective and action films and by American Blaxploitation of the early Seventies. They are influenced by composers as Franco Micalizzi, Armando Trovajoli, Isaac Hayes. But their music is influenced also by Italian prog, hard rock, funk and doom music and is possible to find reference to Osanna, King Crimson, Black Sabbath. This “fusion” of genres creates a spectacular groove that characterizes the Trigemino sound. .During the summer 2010 they published their first work: "Tuggah Wakkah!", Cd digipack gatefold, released for "Dead Music" and "Big Machete Productions". Now, is the time to make a qualitative leap and their second album “In Sound We Trust” can be the right way to do. This time the "Trigemino" have invited other musicians to enrich their sound and achieve the target: Nicola Bagnoli (Hammond), Lorenzo Gabriele (Flute), Mattia Del Forno (Synth), Diego Foschi (Hammond and Moog), Simone Bellagamba (Flugelhorn and Trumpet).Eight instrumental tracks of pure “Pysch Action Funk“ music that will plunge the listeners into a world of cinematic and cosmic atmospheres.

3 overlooked jams on one 12" single, excavated from the deepest realms of the TK Disco vaults. Remastered, represented and brought back into focus for 2017's DJ bags and dance-floors. Side A sees Wizzdom's 1980 boogie jam 'Free bass' kicking off proceedings. A P-funk-ish, low slung jam indeed, it has everything you'd want including some Furious Five esque shouts of 'Free-Bass!' weaving in and out of the mix. This one is a true heads cut, one for the diggers! Over on side B we get Jimmy 'Bo' Horne's slamming 'Is it in?' - a stomping piece of Disco-funk that in the right hands will cause maximum damage. Also, Jimmy's mildly double-entendre lyrics are hugely entertaining! Following up we have a cut from Herman Kelly & Life, 'A refreshing love' was an LP only release and is some serious downtempo Latin tinged soul super soaked in Miami sunshine! All in all, 3 majorly overlooked gems nestled away in the TK archive now brought back into the light. As usual, these TK represses are always done in the proper manner. 100% legit re-edits, from the archive, remastered and released in conjunction with Henry Stone Music / TK Disco - Miami FL

The sole LP by Brazilian quartet Assim Assado, originally released in 1974 by the CID-label, gets reissued on vinyl. Both the artwork and the contents make clear that the band was massively influenced by the psychedelic/progressive art-rock of the popular act Secos & Molhados. Even the androgynous element is present! Assim Assado was led by Miguel de Deus, formerly of Os Brazoes. This wonderful album is recommended to fans of Brazil's late '60s/early '70s rock scene in general, and of Secos & Molhados in particular.

Another superb adventure in the Britxotica! series, looking into rare and amazing exotic British recordings. For this exciting installment we waltz to the British ballrooms for charismatic Cha Cha Chas, magical mambos and a whole set of floor filling fun!Britxotica! (pronounced “Britzotica”) neatly describes an odd and yet undocumented pre-Beatles British musical scene where famed UK composers as well as unknown singers and bandleaders threw convention on holiday and went wild wild wild! Put together by Jonny Trunk with DJ / tastemaker and Smashing nighclub legend Martin Green, these groundbreaking new compilations shine new light on lost and forgotten corners of British culture and sound. For this, Part Four of our planned Britxotica! series we head to the now defunct British ballrooms for a set of dynamic and often extraordinary dance numbers - charming cha cha chas (including “Cha Cha Pop Pop”), lively latin and some fabulously freaky footappers including a classic version of “Cerveza”. Composers and artists include ballroom band legends such as Edmundo Ros, Ted heath and Stanley Black, but also we have found work by lost geniuses such as John Graven and John Warren who are very much worthy or reappraisal. In short, this is another crazy and charismatic compilation of British music so obscure and rare that only Trunk Records could find and package it so superbly and with such effortless and comedic style.

Release:2017 / EU – Original
Genre:Organic Grooves
The French Antilles have been a huge source of influence on the global scene of the past few decades – especially during the big years of the zouk explosion, which opened up the island grooves to a huge global audience! But there's a much richer history of Antilles music that doesn't always get exposure – and part of that is presented here, in a beautiful batch of 70s material that paves the way towards 80s world music trends – but with earthier examples from the styles of compas and cadence! The rhythms are complex, but immediately compelling too – often upbeat and infectious, and in some spots touched by a bit of a 70s funk influence too – and most numbers have horn parts that are as upbeat and powerful as some of the best salsa work of the time, but turned towards slightly different ends. The grooves have so many different strands of sounds working together at once, the result is completely mindblowing – and the well-chosen tracks on the set are supported with notes in French and English that really illuminate this overlooked history. Titles include "La Vie Musique" by Black Affairs, "Si Bon Di Bon" by Simon Jurad, "Cail La Mande Rouse" by Toto Necessite, "Kokoye" by Combo Creole, "Money First" by Selecta Martinique, "Pale Creole" by Rodrigue Millien & Blagueur, "Coeur A Moin" by Belles Combo, and "Marchande" by Gervais Nerva.

Genre:Organic Grooves
Great work from Guadeloupean percussionist Roger Raspail – a set that offers up an unusual blend of jazz and island modes, but in a way that's very rich and organic – without any sort of self-conscious attitude about its presentation! Raspail's worked for years on the Paris scene – and has always been part of that city's rich post-colonial criss-crossing of modes – especially the side of the French jazz scene that has always been very open to non-Anglo rhythms, and allowed very open interplay of different ideas! That approach is definitely in place here – on sounds that maybe offer up more of Raspail's roots than some of his early records – but in a way that also shows his warm absorption of continental modes too. Guests include Vincent Segal, Alain Jean-Marie, Anthony Joseph, and Dao – and titles include "Kalypso Ka", "Rara", "Manza Rene", "Nuite Douce", "Bossa De La Plage", "Papa Yaya", "Ballade A Ilet Perou", and "Anty Kaz La".

Genre:Organic Grooves
As is well known, early relationships are not always blessed, and it is certainly no secret that the collaboration between Aretha Franklin and Columbia’s record producer John H. Hammond did not last long. Hammond’s later attempts to candy Franklin’s irrepressible natural voice with sugary arrangements and studio gimmicks did not go down well with the public. On the first Franklin disc from Columbia, however, it was honeymoon all the way. With a successful mix of pop and jazz standards, the super talent – Aretha had just turned 18 years old – brought her vocal chords to vibrate. Fired on with youthful élan, these evergreens sound so fresh, new and intoxicating that the question of their genre is quite irrelevant. From a seesawing R & B ("Won’t Be Long") via bell-like waves of melody ("Over The Rainbow") right up to the freely styled, jazzy Gershwin classic "It Ain’t Necessarily So" – everything is right there! The Ray Bryant Trio – augmented with winds – proves itself a formidable ensemble with true presence yet unobtrusive accompaniment. If you compare the mature performances of Aretha Franklin in her subsequent years with Atlantic (Atlantic SD7205), you will soon recognize that the later 'First Lady of Soul' was in full command of her profession right from the very beginning.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.

Moondog is the fifth album by American composer Moondog.Moondog had released no music for twelve years since his 1957 album The Story of Moondog. Finally, in 1969, producer James William Guercio invited him to record an album for Columbia Records.[1]The resulting album compiled various music which Moondog had been working on since the 1950s. This included two "minisyms" (Moondog's term for short symphonic-styled works performed by small orchestras); two canons; a chaconne in memory of Charlie Parker; ballet music originally written for Martha Graham ("Witch of Endor"); and three symphonic (or "symphonique") works, one of which was dedicated to Benny Goodman and featured elements of swing. A version of one composition, "Theme", had previously been recorded for Epic Records in 1952

Since the release of his 2 first albums on Favorite Recordings, Lucas Arruda has quickly established himself as one of the most talented young artist and composer from Brazil. His music is filled with fusion style, mixing influences and elements from his Latin musical background, with his genuine admiration for Jazz, Soul and Funk music.In spring 2015, it was also not surprising to find Lucas Arruda back with a new LP called SOLAR, receiving great supports and feedbacks from international media and tastemakers. One of the highlight of the album was the song “Melt the Night”, on which Lucas asked legendary producer Leon Ware for his help, reminding his collaborations in the 80s with Marcos Valle, when they perfectly merged together the sophisticated Boogie and AOR touch from California, with the blazing sense of rhythm from Brazil.Today, Lucas Arruda and Favorite Recordings proudly present a brand new single, announcing the release of Lucas’ third efforts later this year. This new opus is pursuing the music direction set with SOLAR, mixing touch of Blue-Eyed-Soul, Pop, Soul and Brazilian styles together, and influenced by the path of legendary Brazilian producer Lincoln Olivetti, who recorded some of the biggest stars of Brazilian music (Marcos Valle, Jorge Ben, Tim Maia…).In Lucas words: “These two tracks represent the whole spirit of the new album. In this record I really wanted to honor Robson Jorge & Lincoln Olivetti. They are the main influence on this record. We recorded the basic tracks for the album in the same studio that Lincoln Olivetti did his last works. So, this was very important to capture the true essence of Brazilian Funk/AOR tradition. Hope you guys enjoy it!”

100% Peruvian psychedelic chicha from 1981! Lorenzo Palacios Quispe "Chacalón" is a myth. More than a musical star, he is both a religious and secular phenomenon for the masses. Every year on his birthday, his tomb becomes a place of fevered pilgrimage where devotees pray, make wishes and ask for miracles, all done over songs, cases of beer, dancing and toasting. In Peru, his figure and music erases the distance between the holy and the profane, the hero and the lumpen. Chacalón is, for many Peruvians, the people’s angel, the messiah of the poor, the marginalized ‘Inkarri'."When Chacalón sings, the hills come down”, was one of his favorite phrases and with it he referred to the migrant masses that invaded the hills and beaches that surround Lima like a "ring of fire" (José María Arguedas dixit). It was the early 80s and while bombs and a dirty war exploded in the Andes, in Lima, the new and ever-growing population of migrants “climbed down" from their precarious homes and filled venues to dance "chicha" music and to celebrate who they saw as their redeemer.Despite being a model messianic figure, Lorenzo Palacios had very humble origins. The son of a music dancer from Huancayo and a singer of huayno music (Andean folk) from Ayacucho, Chacalon was born in Lima in 1950. As a teen, he had his debut on stage as the singer of huayno band "The Indios Quechuas". The main requirement to sing that genre of music was to have a powerful ribcage and young Lorenzo seemed to have the needed lung capacity for “guapeos”, thunderous voice blows that the genre required. Chicha music is neither a replica or a copy, despite using Western instruments, such as the electric guitar, bass, drums and organs, and mixing them with cymbals, congas and tropical Guiros. Chicha music has indomestizo elements (like Huayno music) tucked deep in his blood. Listen to the powerful cries of Chacalon and you will hear the heartfelt music of Huancayo; listen to his delicate voice breaks and you will hear the sweet music of Ayacucho. The mix of delicacy and strength and rural and cosmopolitan elements, is part of the secret of seduction that chicha music has had over the masses.Aside from use of electric instruments, rock music has influenced chicha music in other ways. Chacalón’s band was called New Cream as a tribute to the British band Cream. Their use of powerful fuzz tones and wah wah pedals for acid riffs and catchy solos, are the echoes of a rebellious music that wanted to silence the noises of a marginalized and exploitative city atmosphere debased by the most savage capitalism. "I seek a new life in this city / where everything is money and there is evil," reads “Provinciano”, Chacalon’s most famous songs.It’s because lyrics like these that people saw Chacalón as a messianic figure who sang about the promise of a new life. He sang about pain, alcohol and betrayal, but also about solidarity, love and hope. Chacalon sang to the most marginalized part of society, the lumpenproletariat, and not the middle class or the wealthy. Lorenzo Palacios did not see differences between those who complied with the law or those who transgressed it, because in marginality, survival is the only rule and the boundaries between good and evil become very subtle. "Eat first, then morals,” said Chacalon.

Death Breaks return after a short hiatus, delivering more classic b-boy breakbeats on 45, this time delving into the NY post punk/disco sound. The A side finds the classic breakdancer's anthem "Cavern" by no-wave funkers Liquid Liquid - famously sampled by Grandmaster Flash & Melle Mel on "White Lines". The B side houses the seminal "U.F.O" by South Bronx sisters ESG, another hip hop staple sampled countless times. Slowed down by hip hop DJs back in the day, the frenetic punk tempo of the original is better known to b-boys at 33rpm as is the case here.

16,99 €*
Release:1971 / US – Reissue
Genre:Organic Grooves
This LP ws recorded as the New Rotary Connection, in 1971. Still including Minnie Riperton, this album, their last one, offers some great Flower Power Soul moves. You get stunning orchestrations and sophisticated vocal arrangements that can be placed somewhere in between the hippie-musical stylings of 'Hair' and the sunshine pop acrobatics of Inner Dialogue and Free Design. The most notable track here probably is the (well known) 'I Am The Blackgold Of The Sun', which is a truly trippy affair. Eight out of the nine tracks were written by arranger, producer and the band's bass player Charles Stepney. The ninth track is a Terry Callier original. The (New) Rotary Connection was an American psychedelic soul band, formed in Chicago in 1966. The band basically was the idea of Marshall Chess, son of Chess Records founder Leonard Chess. Marshall was the director behind the start-up label Cadet Concept Records, and wanted to focus on music outside of the blues and rock genres, which had made the Chess label popular. This led Marshall to turn his attention to the burgeoning psychedelic movement.

Don’t be fooled by Spellacey’s lower profile: amongst those who know, the Melbourne-based New Zealander is widely regarded as a seriously dustyfingered digger, capable of unearthing and championing ridiculously good records from all four corners of the globe. He sells some of these exceptional finds through his Crown Ruler online store, though there are many more that he keeps hidden from the public.From synth-laden Zambian reggae and sumptuous orchestral Afro-soul, to humid Trinidadian boogie and horizontal Italian jazz-funk, Spellacey offers a whirlwind trip through the most kaleidoscopic and exotic parts of his epic collection. As you’d expect from a man who has traveled the world hunting down records, the majority of the 15 tracks will be unknown to all but a handful of similarly minded crate diggers. In fact, some are so obscure that you’ll struggle to find any mention of them at all online. This could be your only chance to own the boogie-era reggae-disco brilliance of Le Banda De Martin’s “Mi Dueno” and the tear-jerking Afro-soul shuffle of Kosmik 3’s “I’m Gonna Pack” (here featured in exclusive Jeremy Spellacey re-edit form).Highlights come thick and fast, from the first note to the last. Check, for example, the wild P-funk of Acayouman’s “Funk Around”, the dancing marimbas and undulating grooves of Feladey’s “Forest Music” and the impeccable South African jazz-funk of Stimela’s sought-after 1983 debut single, “I Love You”. Other notable highlights include Ezy & Isaac’s spellbinding 1977 cut “Let Your Body Move (Oba Balu Balu)”, seemingly the missing link between Rotary Connection, Fela Kuta and soundscape disco, Devon Russell’s inspired reggaesoul cover of Curtis Mayfield’s “Move on Up”, and Mike Fabulous’ “Wang East”, a sublime chunk of summery electro-reggae from Spellacey’s native New Zealand. We could go on, but we don’t want to spoil all the surprises. Suffice to say, Crown Ruler Sound will surprise and entertain you in equal measure.

Ortiz acts a one-man band— producer, songwriter, & engineer on this largely self-produced project. Ortiz continues on his path to be one of LA’s most essential modern funk forces.

Los Daddys return with another slab of primo cumbia heat. Los Daddys is a Cumbia Sonidera band from Puebla, Mexico near the capital, Mexico City. Los Daddy's sound is very approachable to the uninitiated listener but to gain a full appreciation for Cumbia Sonidera one must familiarize themselves with the origins of sonidero (DJ) sound system culture and Cumbia Rebajada, which literally means "slowed cumbia". As the Sonideros (DJs) slowed the tempos of the fast Colombian Cumbión music, the pitch went down with it, resulting in a heavier, deeper bass sound. The reinterpretation of these classic tunes in a slow and low fashion is what gives the Cumbia Sonidera and Los Daddys their distinctive sound and dance floor appeal.

Genre:Organic Grooves
This LP brings together for the first time, HIP HARP and IN A MINOR GROOVE, the two albums recorded in 1958 by the legendary jazz harpist and polistrumentist Dorothy Ashby. Dorothy Ashby had a unique soul jazz harp sound, and although the instrument she used is probably more thought of in terms of bedtime lullabies, she actually makes it swing nicely, and with a soulful sound that draws back to traditions of African stringed instruments. Ashby was part of the same scene as Yusef Lateef, and like Lateef, she managed to use odd instrumentation in new contexts, to get a very unique jazz sound.“In HIP HARP in addition to the interpretations of standards like Moonlight In Vermont, Dancing In The Dark, Charmaine and There’s A Small Hotel, Dorothy and Frank work out on three Ashby tunes: Pawky, a minor-key blues, Back Talk, major-key blues and Jollity, a medium-up original. Dorothy Ashby has added to the basic territory that the harp previously occupied. In fusing her sometimes guitar-like, swinging line to the expected harp effects, she has added another step to the instrument-scope of jazz(...) (from the original liner notes) “IN A MINOR GROOVE is so named because all of the tunes are set in that particular mode. They represent a mixture of standards, jazz originals and one fairly recent pop song. Like the first set featuring Dorothy Ashby and Frank Wess (Hip Harp), this is not rock ‘em, sock ‘em jazz; it is far from the cloying effects of the kind of performances often associated with jazz of a low decibel nature” (from the original liner notes)Numbered first press of 500 copies.

Genre:Organic Grooves
Profusion (noun): an abundance of something rich - The sonic partnership of K15 and Emeson originated in the days of MySpace. A future of combining their skills was inevitable, and now in 2017, it's time to unleash their debut studio album into the ether. The solo-projects of Tottenham-raised Kieron Ifill (aka K15) date back a decade, but were truly kick-started on labels such as Kyle Hall's Wild Oats and WotNot Music, with a number of genre-crossing releases dropping ever since, including the WU15 project (along with Yussef Kamaal's Henry Wu, on Eglo Records). Additionally to his production work, he has established himself internationally as a DJ, from the Jazz Cafe to the CoOp parties. Partner in Profusion, Emeson, has many skills to his bow - singing, songwriting, producing, promoting, DJing (under the alias Ed Nice) and acting. As a musician, his varied skill-set has seen him work with Chico Hamilton, Carla Duke, Karmasound, Uzo Madu and Chris Jerome. A frontman for soul-jazz groups LifeSize, The One and Saturn's Children, he has featured on releases for BBE and Tokyo Dawn, and appeared live on stage at the likes of Ronnie Scott's. The debut single was supported by tastemaker blogs Wonderland, XLR8R and Stamp The Wax, has been bumped by selectors such as Lefto and Jazzie B, and played on NTS, Worldwide FM, Mi-Soul, LeMellotron, Balamii Radio, Itch FM, Invader FM, Soho Radio and various stations across Europe and the US. This album is full to the brim with summery sun-soaked synths, drifting across the warmest of basslines and heavyweight beats. Emeson's rich vocals gracefully ride atop of K15's delectably bruk twist on neo-soul sonics and electronics, this is some seriously classy contemporary London soul music, that manages to incorporate flashes of various dance music techniques, sound-system etiquette and jazz-tinged rhythms. As future-thinking as it is subtly retrospective, it doesn't lend itself to one genre, it intentionally embodies the best of many. An array of everything that is great about British black music in 2017. The message the album conveys itself couldn't have come at a more poignant time. Where do we begin?Profusion - an abundance of something rich indeed.

The covers (and the treats) continue with teenage band The Aftermath's heavy take on Junior Wells' Messing With The Kid and Hunger's Brian Auger-ish Mind Machine. Elsewhere, Pump as well as the Sancho Brothers deliver two solid freaked-out instrumentals.This is a super-hot collection of vintage rarities (accompanied by detailed liner notes and never-before-seen photos of the artists!) imbued with all the glorious imperfections of the golden age of the analogue era that artists now often strive so hard to recreate. Little surprise then that these cuts should sound so fresh today. Available on vinyl LP, CD and digital download.

Bob Shad was one of the greatest music producers of the 20th century, having worked with all the music giants you can think of, from Charlie Parker and Dizzy Gillespie to Sarah Vaughan, Lightnin' Hopkins, The Platters and Janis Joplin to name just a few. "Bobby Shad was a legend in our family" says his grandson Judd Apatow who, together with his sister Mia, still looks after Shad's back catalogue, Mainstream Records.Like his peers, jazz producers Creed Taylor and Bob Thiele, Shad went independent in the 60s and by the early 70s, he was producing a string of superb albums mixing Spiritual Jazz with Funk and Soul. These albums are now being rediscovered by new generation of Soul and Jazz lovers hooked on the music of Kamasi Washington and Shabaka Hutchings.Recorded between 1971 and 73, the Fender-Rhodes-drenched tracks on INNER PEACE showcase Shad's unique Deep Jazz sound. They feature such revered musicians as Harold Land, Roy Haynes and Frank Foster, together with a younger generation of talented musicians led by Buddy Terry, Dave Hubbard and LaMont Johnson.Here they are accompanied by the cream of 70s jazz session musicians including Bernard Purdie, Buster Williams, Eddie Henderson, Mtume, Stanley Clarke, and Cecil Bridgewater.The Mainstream catalogue has been sampled by a long list of revered DJs and Hip Hop producers over the years. Roy Haynes’ ‘Senyah’ was sampled by De La Soul on ‘Pony Ride’ and Shelly Manne’s short outro, ‘Infinity’ forms the unmissable backbone of Jeru The Damaja’s all-time Hip Hop classic, ‘Come Clean’. A fitting tribute to the supreme sound of producer Bob Shad.

One of Jamaica’s most highly-rated vocalists, Alton Ellis made an incredible contribution to the island’s popular music. Blessed with a particularly emotive voice that brings shivers to the spine whether singing original material or cover tunes, Ellis was born and raised in Trench Town, the west Kingston ghetto area that gave rise to Bob Marley and the Wailers and countless other singers. Ellis and singing partner Eddie Parkins hit big in 1961 with the ballad ‘Muriel’ for Coxsone Dodd, and after Parkins moved to the USA, Ellis teamed briefly with John Holt, and then began fronting the Flames harmony group. He excelled in the rock steady style, christening the genre with ‘Rock Steady’ and ‘I Have Got A Date,’ bouncing between Studio One and Treasure Isle for a number of years. From 1971, he spent increasing period in London, but continued to record hits in Jamaica for various producers. The 1979 release Love To Share was arranged by the great Studio One keyboardist, Jackie Mittoo, who co-produced the album with Junior Lincoln, founder of the London-based Bamboo label; the disc straddles the line between lover’s rock and roots reggae, remaining a lesser-known classic.

Genre:Organic Grooves
Moniquea established herself as one of the foremost female artists in the modern funk scene with her 2014 MoFunk Records debut album Yes No Maybe. For her followup, she continues exploring and expanding upon the boogie/modern soul sound of her debut, and at the same time, ventures bravely into a new sound inspired by the new wave and synthpop sounds of the 80’s. Thus, the album title: "Blackwavefunk".Listening to "Blackwavefunk" feels like sweeping across a spectrum of sounds and feels. The lead single, “Checkin’ Out,” channels the ‘street funk’ sound that Moniquea’s native California is known for, while “I Just Don’t Know” slows the pace and mood to offer up one of the few true downtempo love songs of the genre. “When You Are Away,” “Make You Feel My Love” (feat. Brian Ellis) and “Why Can’t You See” offer sleek, sexy modern soul soundscapes while the Turquoise Summers-produced “Knew It” thumps with a menacing g-funk bounce. Finally, the wave in "Blackwavefunk" reveals itself on the eccentric “Check Your Sources,” an anthem about sordid speculation and grievous gossip, over a musical backdrop that sounds like 1999-era Prince and DPG somehow achieved perfect sonic fusion. The album’s closer, “Famous,” takes it further and gives a glimpse of what it might sound like if Bernie Worrell played synth basslines for OMD or Pet Shop Boys.

The 2nd release on 45 Live Records, welcomes the amazing talent Christian Madden into the family. Christian released his LP 'The Wrecking Place' digitally in January 2017 that these 2 tracks are taken from and which most definitely deserved to be pressed onto vinyl. Before this album, Christian, along with Giles Hatton, Brandon Carr and John Mark Lapham from the USA, formed a band called The Earlies, blending elements from a wide range of musical genres and have been described as both 'a very English kind of folk-psychedelia... with a smattering of Beach Boys harmonies' by The Independent, and 'country-meets-prog-meets-electronica symphonies' by The Guardian, which saw them headline the Green Man Festival in 2007.'Everybody Get In Line' beautifully fuses a Northern Soul vibe with jazz rock undertones, an ever building instrumental with swirling Hammond, celebratory horns and stomping drums that build into a crescendo under the skillful hands of this 11 piece band. The flip 'Eating It All' is a deadly syncopated jazz fusion groove with an epic and adventurous arrangement that builds tension through its multiple breakdowns and parts. Once again a song that lets all the individual musicians shine brightly, especially drummer Richard Young who throws down a wonderfully complex rhythm, and the brooding horn section in the main breakdown.This is real music from a real band, channeling the vibes of Brian Auger, George Duke, Colosseum and the like, most definitely a 45 for the spirited DJ and demanding dance floors.

The Allergies' debut album introduced the world to the way they effortlessly fuse funk, soul, disco, hip-hop and breaks into dancefloor-ready nuggets of ear candy. Taking classic sounds and reshaping for the modern age is the signature that won them plaudits across the globe.Not ones to rest on their laurels, it hasn't taken long for them to deliver more of the goods on their second full-length album, 'Push On'. As well as taking the successful formula of the first record and expanding on the sound with raw Funk, Psych, Northern Soul, and Boogie influences, The Allergies enlisted two giants of underground Hip-Hop to bless mics on the album as well.After a hugely successful collaboration on their debut LP, once again the dynamic lyricism and production skills of the inimitable Andy Cooper (Ugly Duckling) are present and correct in this new collection. Besides bringing the party on tracks like 'Main Event', he also settles scores with 'It Won't Be Me', before destroying all-comers on the battle Rap behemoth, 'Buzzsaw'. Also joining in on the action is UK MC veteran, Dr Syntax (The Mouse Outfit, Foreign Beggars) who prescribes some more healthy Hip-Hop advice on the track 'Remedy'.Other highlights include the vintage Soul stomper, 'Entitled to That', Sixties uptempo groover, 'Hold You Close', and the fantastic little strutter, 'Get Down On You'. All in all it's a brand new set of future classics from your new favourite funky beatmakers, The Allergies.

The A-side's Nassau mix by François K is a sensual and airy journey, while the B-side's London mix offers a more realistic approach that will please the more classic-listening disco enthusiasts.

Mother Braintree were a 1973 group out of Cleveland Ohio. There musical influences seemed at the time to be Funkadelic, Sly and the family stone and Hendrix. Which you can hear on the amazing ghetto funk B-side of “Let Me Lay Beside You” that’s flute led and drops into a killer drum break. But the A-side is getting some air play from the like of Gilles Peterson and JM on Mi-soul. A beautiful almost spiritual floating Bossa song. Both these tracks are unissued from 1973. Mother Braintree never released anything onto vinyl and these studio sessions have lay dormant since that time.Later on members Wayne Preston, Larry Ross and Pierre Demudd who go on to be in group Bell Telephunk, and Kinsman Dazz!TIP!!

2 classics on one 12" single, gems excavated from the deepest realms of the TK Disco vaults. Remastered, represented and brought back into focus for 2017's DJ bags and dance-floors! On side A we have former Foxy frontman Ishmael 'Ish' Ledesma with his sublime esoteric Disco cut from 1979 called 'Don't stop', a deep, late night diamond of a track that will appeal to the more left-field Disco lovers out there. 'Don't stop' has long been a favourite with the diggers with it's sweet vocals, synth heavy production and overall cosmic vibe. A beauty of a track indeed and one of TK's lesser known cuts. Side B sees fusion guitarist John Tropea's 1979 cosmic classic 'Living in the jungle', a long time spin of DJ's like Daniele Baldelli and DJ Harvey. Infusing Tropea's rock sensibilities with the throb of the Disco dance-floor the track is a low slung, midtempo groover that touches all the right spots. Overall, this essential double-header is a must have for all Disco heads and left-field DJ fiends.As usual, these TK represses are always done in the proper manner. 100% legit re-edits, from the archive, remastered and released in conjunction with Henry Stone Music / TK Disco - Miami FL.

For the lucky ones that could listen to her whole album – and get to know other gems such as "Lamento Africano/Rictus" and "A Cidade"– it is clear that it is an ouvre that more people should have access to, not only an elite of listeners and connaisseurs.
