✨✧ VariousKanye Collection – 30 Original Full Length Songs Sampled By Kanye West ... LP
Strictly Breaks, 1970s. Used 2LP ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A big batch of tracks sampled by Kanye West – featuring 30 original soul, funk and funky soul titles, plus notes that give away the Kanye tracks for which the tunes were sampled! (Unlike other sets in this Strictly Breaks series, the sleeve doesn't include the names of the original artists.) You don't need to dig too deep through the Dusty Groove descriptions to sense how thrilled we were about Kanye's takeover of the mainstream in the early 00s, given his affinity for true soul samples that move well beyond the typical – even if we did grow wearisome of the sped-up vocal sample trend. You don't need to fear the chipmunk vocals on this set of the original tracks! You get many of the tracks Kanye assembled for his own great singles and album cuts, plus some of his production work for Common, Scarface, Jay-Z, Mos Def, Mobb Deep and Royce Da 5'9! Tracks include "Diamonds Are Forever", "Someone That I Used To Love", "Wild Flower", "Home Is Where The Hatred Is", "It's Your Thing", "My Funny Valentine", "Action", "It's Too Late", "Upon This Rock", "Walk With Me", "No Money Down", "Chicago", "Something", "Old Smokey", "An This is Love", "Aquarius", "Ghetto Child", "Doggone" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousKickin 7 – TK Miami Mellow Mix ... CD
TK/Shout (Japan), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Sublime sounds from the legendary TK Records family of labels – home to some of the coolest, grooviest music from Miami in the 70s – plus more grooves from other sources too! The package focuses on a style that was definitely TK's strongest suit at the time – their wonderful way of blending together funk, soul, and club into a style that was beautifully mellow – and which really paved the way for lots of other modern soul work in years to come. These nuggets are some of the best of TK's catalog – and have a level of presentation that really goes way past the usual for an indie label – almost AOR in perfection, but with some nicely rougher edges. The mix features 26 tracks sliding together gracefully – and titles include "Keep It Up" by Milton Wright, "Sweet Vibrations" by Latimore, "Free" by Chocolate Clay, "The Way We Live" by Raw Soul Express, "Gee Wiz Boy" by Regina James, "Good Good Lovin" by Charles Johnson, "Love's Sweet Notions" by Billion Dollar Band, "Our Day is Here" by JP Robinson, "IT's You Girl" by Universal Love, "Something Special" by Lew Kirton, "If It Was Me" by Sundray Tucker "The Silence That You Keep" by Milton Wright, "Beautiful World" by Leno Phillips, "Bluestrain" by Beginning Of The End, and "Miami Bump" by The Rising Sun.

✨✧ VariousKonnichiwa Bit*hes – Mixed By Babu ... CD
Mochilla, 1960s/1970s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A stellar mix from DJ Babu for Mochilla – spun from wax that Babu dug up on journeys to Japan – hip hop, jazzy funk, pulpy pop, anime and other soundtrack bits, mad rock, spacey soul and more! It's a cliche-free trip – showing a broad range of funky music made in Japan by an anonymous roster –- layered into a cohesive hip hop funk vibe. Insistent beats, deft hip hop scratches and other timeless touches connect some disparate soundscapes. It's a continuous, 48+ minute mix, and it's a great one! CD

✨✧ VariousLand Of 1000 Dances – Special Soul & Funk Edition ... CD
Kent (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A massive collection of soulful groovers – tunes that packed the dancefloors in the days before disco, and which definitely show the harder edge of the soul spectrum! The set starts off with mid-60s tunes based around a simple rhythm and a quirky dance gimmick – then branches out into some hard-hitting sock-soul numbers from later in the decade, and eventually slides into some sweet 70s funk! The overview of tunes is a great one, with some tasty familiar numbers, some great obscurities, and a few tracks that have been massively hard to find on CD! Titles include "The Greasy Frog" by Jeb Stuart, "The Matador" by Major Lance, "The Dip" by The Whispers, "Jerk It" by The Gypsies, "The Chicken" by Jackie Lee, "The Meditation" by TNT Band, "Broadway Freeze (parts 1 & 2)" by Harvey Scales & The Seven Sounds, "Walkin The Duck" by The Triumphs, "Temptation Walk" by The Entertainers IV, "Moon Walk (parts 1 & 2)" by Joe Simon, "Bumpin & Stompin" by Garland Green, "Bus Stop" by Fatback Band, and "Do The Sissy" by Albert Collins. 26 tracks in all!

✨✧ VariousMobilisation Generale – Protest & Spirit Jazz From France 1970 to 1976 ... CD
Born Bad (France), Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Seminal sounds from the Parisian jazz community of the early 70s – a scene that had as much late 60s revolutionary energy as the American one – and which steps forth here in a beautiful blend of righteous themes and really far-reaching styles! The politics of the set are obvious from the cover and title – but there's also a deeply spiritual feel, too – that same sense of searching in the post-Coltrane generation of the US, but played out in a host of very different ways that make the music a great new discovery! American musicians interacted heavily with French jazz players in the post-1968 scene – and you can definitely hear that influence at work, mixed with other creative European modes that really give the music a special cross-cultural feel. Some key elements of the post-colonial scene are at play as well – and titles include "De L'Orient A L'Orion" by RK Nagati, "Attention L'Armee" by Atarpop 73 & Le Collectif Le Temps Des Cerises, "Samba Miaou" by Full Moon Ensemble, "Le Cri" by Michel Roques, "Hey" by Chene Noir, "Athee Ou A Te" by Beatrice Arnac, "Nous Ouvrirons Les Casernes" by Mahjun, "Je Suis Un Sauvage" by Alfred Panou & Art Ensemble Of Chicago, and "Les Elephants" by Frederic Rufin & Raphael Lecomte.
