The first-ever new recording on the Soundway label – and a honey of a session produced by Quantic at his Colombian studios! The sound here is very classic – raw percussion, sharp-edged saxes, and even a bit of accordion from Quantic himself – all wrapped up in a blend that's a mix of older Colombian modes with some slightly more offbeat touches – not just in the way the instrumentation is used, but in the choice of music, too. The set features covers of material by Michael Jackson and Queen – but it's far from gimmicky, as it's got lots of original numbers too – really great music that evokes a time past, but with a 21st Century ear – that great sense of new appreciation for Latin cultures that we've been getting from groove diggers of late! Titles include "Fabiola", "Noche De Tamborito", "Cumbia De Mochilla", "Willy's Merengue", "Samaria", "Otro Muerde El Polvo", "Satta Massa Cumbia", and "No Pares Hasta Tener Lo Suficiente".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

After All
Sweet (Spain), 2013. New Copy
Sweet grooves from this hip Spanish combo – one of the hardest-working deep funk combos on the European scene in recent years – and a mighty soulful one as well! Mayka Edjole sings lead vocals in English, but with this cool accent that really makes the music sound different – ... CD
Magical Thinking
Soundway (UK), 2013. New Copy Gatefold
Some of the tightest tracks we've ever heard from Chico Mann – and some of his most soulful too – a great set of work that really has him stepping past some of the rougher structures of earlier years, and showing a new love of 80s keys and beats as well! The album's got a skittish ... CD
Victim Of Love
Dunham/Daptone, 2013. New Copy
Damn amazing work from Charles Bradley – an instant soul classic for all generations, as you'll hear from the very first note! Not only are Bradley's vocals incredible – the kind of once-in-a-long-time approach he brought to his debut – but the backings and production are ... CD
Play It Again
Keep On Boppin (Netherlands), 2008. New Copy
Funky grooves from Basque country – an unlikely location, but one that turns up some surprisingly great work from this sharp-edged little combo! The Cherry Boppers have a name that might be a little hokey, but they hooked us in right from the start with their tight version of classic funk ... CD
Who's Cooking
TNT Productions (Germany), 2013. New Copy
Grand Slam take plenty of inspiration from the P-Funk universe – and as proof of that fact, they've got Gary Mudbone Cooper on vocals for a few tracks on this sweet little set – a record that definitely offers up a 21st Century evolution of the original P-Funk groove! The combo are ... CD
13 Degrees Of Reality
Now Again/Stones Throw, 2013. New Copy
If this is reality, lead us onward – as the set is a mindblowing batch of trippy psych-funk from The Heliocentrics – even more offbeat and experimental than before, in ways that make the combo the true heirs to the legacy first begun by Stark Reality! The album's definitely funky at ... CD
Itadi
Hot Casa (France), 1977. New Copy
A rare Afro funk gem from Itadi – filled with righteous sounds and knowledge, and served up in a dubby groove that's pretty unique! Itadi hails from Togo, but already had experience in the US by the time of this recording – and the sound carries some cross-Atlantic styles that really ... CD
Analog Africa (Germany), Mid 70s. New Copy
Raw sound, indeed – and possibly one of the most hard-hitting compilations so far from the Analog Africa label! There's a quality here that's mighty fresh, and which shows us that there's still plenty of African nuggets to find, if you know where to dig! Much of the music has a dark, moody ... CD
