Rugged NuggetsYo Todo Tu Yo/Tsunami ... 7-inch
Colemine, 2012. New Copy ... $4.99
A cool little groove from this mysterious funky combo! "Yo Todo Tu Yo" has a slight Latin vibe – as you might expect from the title – but is also this hip midtempo funk number done with snapping drums and watery keyboards – kind shimmering next to the tight breaks, ...

Satin ChapsStompin/Hard Drivin ... 7-inch
Satin Chaps, 2015. New Copy (pic cover)... $5.99
The Satin Chaps are plenty "Stompin" here – on a cut that mixes some nice fuzz with a warmer Hammond organ groove – all nicely peppered with horns, and given this cool romping chant in the middle! There's a nicely offbeat vibe to the cut – not typical Hammond funk ... (Funky 45's, Deep Funk) read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

ATA (UK), 2015. New Copy ... $15.99
A contemporary record, but one we'd rank right up there with the moodiest, most exotic African funk albums of the 70s – especially the gems we've discovered through the Ethiopiques series!
