✨✧ VariousMasterpiece Volume 14 – The Ultimate Disco Funk Collection ... CD
PTG (Netherlands), Early 80s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Basslines, keyboards, and plenty of beats – all stepping out strongly in a sweet selection of clubby numbers from the early 80s! The set's not really disco, but is definitely funk – of the lean, clean style that groups were serving up in the post-disco years – kind of a refinement of the earlier ensemble sound of the 70s, taken to a tighter rhythmic focus for the next decade! Titles include "Can't Judge A Book By Its Cover" by Cookie, "Turn Me Down" by Nick Straker, "Love Is What I'm After" by Richard Jon Smith, "Please Come Back" by Dean Edwards, "Time For Some Fun" by Central Line, "Cash Play (rmx)" by Yvette Cason, "This Time" by Funk Deluxe, "I Can't Forget You" by California Executives, and "How Do You Feel Tonight" by Bobby M with Jean Carn.

✨✧ VariousNigeria 70 Vol 1 – The Definitive Story Of 1970's Funky Lagos ... CD
Strut (UK), 1970s. Used 2CDs ... Out Of Stock
A fantastic batch of grooves – and a much-needed document of the rich array of funky sounds that were coming out of Nigeria in the 1970s! The country's best known as the homeland of Fela Kuti – an artist who forever changed the face of global funk – but what's not as well known is that there were a number of other artists operating in Fela's shadow, crafting their own interpretation of American soul and African funk during the same generation. This overstuffed package offers a great look (and listen) into that scene – and compiles tracks by a few artists you might already recognize, plus others that are presented here for the first time in such a set. As with other compilations on the Strut label, the notes are very well done, with loads of information and details on the recordings – but even more importantly, the music is fantastic, with a rich array of grooves that blows away most mainstream compilations of Afro Funk from the 70s! Titles include "Enjoy Yourself" by Sahara All Stars Band, "Shango" by Peter King, "Dancing Time" by The Funkees, "Ikon Allah" by Bala Miller & The Great Music Pirameeds Of Afrika, "Tire Loma Da Nigbehin" by Monomono, "Kita Kita" by Gasper Lawal, "Agboju Logun" by Shina Williams & His African Percussionists, "Akayan Ekassa" by Sir Victor Uwaifo & His Melody Maesstroes, "Ja Fun Mi (inst)" by Sunny Ade, "Alla Wakbarr" by Ofo The Black Company, "Ifa" by Tunji Oyelana & The Benders, "Jenu Ko Ku" by Fela & Africa 70, "La La La" by Segun Bucknor, and "Orere Elejigbo" by Lijadu Sisters. 22 tracks in all – almost everything from the previous 3CD version that's been out of print for years.

✨✧ VariousPiece The Next – Japan Breeze – Selected By Hiroko Otsuka ... CD
Key Of Life (Japan), 2016. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An excellent overview of the ways in which the Japanese scene has really changed in recent years – moving past the straighter soul, house, and club jazz of a decade ago – into a range of creative styles that are completely their own! There's definitely a current of jazz that runs through most of this work, but the presentation is very unique overall – groups that change up rhythms in interesting ways, shift the instrumentation and production modes into very groundbreaking territory, and keep pushing the boundaries in the process! There's only one name here we'd heard before – Takuya Kuroda, who gave us records here in the US – but all other artists are new to our ears. Titles include "Porter" by Daiki Tsuneta Millennium Parade, "Spur" by Les Komatis, "Milestones" by Racha Fola, "Bring Me To Having A Curry Rice" by Banda Choro Eletrico, "WTRDR Suite 2 SDOKS" by Osawa Birdwatcherz, "Spank A Lee Jam" by Naked Voice, "The Source" by Satoshi Yoshida, "Green Dolphin Street" by Maya Hatch, and "Waiting In Fain" by Takumi Moriya.

✨✧ VariousRich Medina Presents Jump N Funk ... CD
BBE (UK), Mid 70s/Late 2000s/Early 2010s. New Copy 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
One of the coolest projects we've heard from Rich Medina in years – a killer compilation that brings together older Afro Funk tracks from the 70s with a big amount of cuts from more contemporary years – all with a blend that pushes the spirit of the continent way out into the cosmos! Medina's always been one of the most forward-thinking artists in the underground – and you can definitely hear that quality in this set – as Rich effortlessly steps back and forth in space and time, to create a unified sound that bristles with electricity, while still reveling in all the key acoustic elements from the 70s. Titles include "For The People" by Aquil, "Bango Fields" by Kutiman, "For Real (2011 edition Atjazz rmx)" by Atjazz, Olodumare" by Wale Oyejide, "Bushman" by Asiko Afrobeat Ensemble, "Stalemate" by Fela & The Afrika 70, "Jungle Beat (Mutaba)" by Sir Victor Uwaifo & His Melody Maestroes, "Soul Makossa" by Original Nairobi Afro Band, "Why Can't We Live Together (Sao Benitez BV dub)" by River Oceaon, and "Na Oil" by Seun Kuti & Fela's Egypt 80. CD
Also available Rich Medina Presents Jump N Funk (with bonus 7" single) ... LP 29.99
