AJ & The JiggawattsIt Is What It Is/Party Music ... 7-inch
Colemine, 2016. New Copy ... $5.99
One of the rawest, raunchiest grooves we've heard from AJ & Co to date – a tune that's got a heavy slow-funk drum part that launches the whole thing along – and some slinky stepping, hard-sung lyrics that almost give the song a pimp walk sort of vibe! "Party Music" is a ... (Funky 45's, Deep Funk) read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Bacao Rhythm & Steel BandPIMP/Police In Helicopter ... 7-inch
Big Crown, 2016. New Copy ... $8.99
A wicked set of funky steel drums – a bad-stepping number from the Bacao Rhythm & Steel Band, and just the kind of hard funk cut we're always digging for on steel drum records!

Timmion (Finland), 2018. New Copy ... $9.99

Mixto, 2016. New Copy (reissue)... $8.99 9.98
The Breakdown Brass take on Rick James' "Mary Jane" – turning the whole cut into a horn-heavy instrumental, with a groove that's more 70s funk than the vintage of Rick's original tune!

Leroi ConroyTiger Trot/Enter ... 7-inch
Colemine, 2017. New Copy ... $5.99
That tiger's trotting at a mighty cool pace – a slow-funk groove that almost seems to have a touch of Ethio-exoticism in the horns – while the drums and guitar stay in more familiar funky territory overall! The guitar is even wilder on the flipside – as "Enter" has kind ... (Funky 45's, Deep Funk) read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Du-RitesZodiac/Monster ... 7-inch
Old Maid, 2019. New Copy ... $9.99 10.98
There's a slight Meters groove in the background of "Zodiac" – the way that the bassline and drums work together – but the front space of the cut's also got this unusual spoken bit, with J-Zone bad-rapping quickly, in a style that's very unusual for a funk track! The approach ... (Funky 45's, Deep Funk) read more 7-inch, Vinyl record
