Various — West Indies Funk Vol 3 ... CD 6.99

Plenty funky down in the West Indies – more than enough to keep this third volume as strong as the previous two! There's loads of wonderful bits here – from steel band funk to tropical-styled rhythms to heavy grooves that are hardly what you'd expect to be coming from the islands back in the 70s – a wonderful discovery in music that's got our ears plenty happy! We'd never be able to track down most of these tunes on our own – and we're grateful to the folks at Trans Air for coming up with so many sweet funky numbers in one power-packed compilation. Titles include "Sandy Beach" by Johnny Hackworth's Caribbean Sound, "Make It Funky" by Silvertons, "Midnight Man" by Earl Rodney, "Do Your Thing" by Trinidad & Tobago Steel All Stars, "Cissy Strut" by Trinidad Steel Drummers, "90 Percent Of Me Is You" by Amral's Trinidad Cavaliers, "Calypso Rock" by Original Tropicana Steel Band, "2001" by Life, and "The Devil's Out Tonight" by Carl McKnight's Sweat & Steel Drum Band.  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

A funky collection of soundtrack grooves from Hindi films – all from the late 70s to mid 80s – and with a lot more going on stylistically than just disco! It's got some of heaviest percussive sounds we've heard from period Eastern soundtracks – and lots of great vocals – ... CD

Two later moments from Zamrock legends Witch – both of which show the group moving into a much more soulful groove! Movin On has a sweet funky style at the core – a mode that shows Witch picking up a fair bit of disco and club from the American scene, and fusing it with their older ... CD

Comb & Razor, Mid 70s. New Copy 2CD & Book
Rare Afro Rock from Nigeria's Semi-Colon group – and it's an astonishingly strong record! It's got fuzzy guitar grooves and spacey electic piano that are indebted to the global psych soul and rock scenes of the late 60s and early 70s – but the rhythmic sensibility, percussion and ... CD

Power Punch
Brownswood (UK), 2013. New Copy
An album that definitely packs a powerful punch – thanks to a compelling blend of sounds from both London and Kenya, brought together in a whole new formation of African groove! The album's a wicked reworking of an older aesthetic – in a spirit that's similar to the really inventive ... CD

Luaka Bop, Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy
Grooves unlike anything else you've ever heard before – the rightly legendary musical legacy of William Onyeabor, one of the most enigmatic talents to come from the African scene of the 70s! The work here is all plenty darn funky, but it's also very different from familiar Afro Funk too ... CD

Dust To Digital, 1960s. New Copy
Pretty amazing music from Morocco – sounds that are definitely as raw as promised in the title, but which also go way past what you might expect as music from 45s! First off, the tunes are much longer than usual for a 7" single – as most numbers are well over 5 minutes in length, ... CD

Isan Lam Plearn
EM (Japan), 1972. New Copy
Great work from one of the most enigmatic molam singers on the Thai scene of the early 70s – a vocalist with a really other-worldly feel, and a way of shaping notes that's completely sublime! The vocals of Angkanag Kunchai just get better and better with each fresh track on this set – ... CD

Aljawal
Soundway (UK), 2013. New Copy
Weirdly wonderful sounds from Debruit & Alsarah – a duo who offer up their own take on older Sudanese modes – but with a very stripped-down style overall! Most numbers feature just Alsarah's lovely vocals atop beats and keys from Xavier Thomas – used in modes that evoke older ... CD

Ibibio Sound Machine
Soundway (UK), 2014. New Copy Gatefold
A really fresh group with a very unique sound – a combo that's partly rooted in older Afro Funk modes, but who also deliver their groove with kind of a leaner, New York street soul vibe as well! The album's cover image really gets the groove right – as the vintage is more 70s through ... CD

Soundway (UK), Early 70s. New Copy 2 CDs
Essential work from the African scene of the 70s – a collection of tracks that goes way beyond the more familiar grooves of Fela Kuti and Manu Dibango! The set may well be the deepest so far we've heard from the always-amazing Soundway Records – a package that digs into a wealth of ... CD

Ondatropica
Soundway (UK), 2012. New Copy
Colombian music, both classic and contemporary – as a group of older all-star players comes into contact with Will "Quantic" Holland! The set's easily one of the most smoking Latin-styled projects we've heard from Quantic so far – recorded in Colombia with work from Fruko, ... CD
