Afro 7 (Estonia), 1975. New Copy ... $12.99
The bass in our speakers nearly jumped out of the box when we first started to play "What's Love" – a cut with this great bottom end that really gets things going, before riffing guitar builds a bridge to these cool exotic horns over the top! The vocal's got a really offbeat vibe, ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Mr Bongo (UK), Early 70s. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... $12.99 13.98
Two funky killers on a reissue 45! Cymande's "Bra" is a dub-heavy classic – rolling along at a compelling midtempo groove, with scattershot bass and drums, and these cool flanged out rasta vocals that make the cut super-righteous! "The Message" is probably the group's ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Mr Bongo (UK), Early 70s. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... $12.99 13.98
Stone genius from the legendary Cymande! "Fug" is a tune with this amazing bassline and riffing guitar – all deep and complicated at the start, then opening up even more as the tune moves on – with great percussion, and this stop/start approach to the groove that's really ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Karma Chief/Colemine, 2019. New Copy (pic cover)... $8.99
A sweet little number with a sunny California vibe – equal parts rock and soul, with a guitar line that fades in to echo the waves of the surf – while Rudy De Anda delivers a vocal over romping drums! "Los Canarios" is slower, with plenty of echoey guitar tripping over slow ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Two of the grooviest tracks from the score to L'Allenatore Nel Pallone – both issued here on a limited 45! "Mundialito" has a Braziliany groove at the bottom, with lots of cuica next to percussion – but the overall rhythm is more leaping and Italian, and a chorus does all ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Universal (Japan), 1970. New Copy (pic cover)... $16.99
Fantastic work from this very cool soundtrack – two upbeat, groovy tunes that are both centerpieces of the famous score by Francois De Roubaix! "Repetition" is already great – and "Piti Piti Pas" is even cooler, with lots of weird touches and rhythms! 7-inch, Vinyl record

You might know the DeAngelis name from other funky Italian work of the 70s – thanks to the soundtrack genius of Guido & Maurizio DeAngelis – but this DeAngelis is their sister Emma, who had a much shorter career – but one that was equally groovy overall!

Rare sweet soul from this obscure Ohio group – one who, we think, are the same who recorded for Motown earlier in the 70s – but sound especially wonderful here! "Love Vibrations" has a mellow vibe that's totally great – vocals that are in a sweet soul mode, but with a ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

A spacey disco classic! "Go Bang" is a wonderful tune – with a jaunty vocal refrain that's laid over some off-kilter keyboard rhythms infused with bass. Arthur Russell produced and Francois K mixed – and this great vinyl single features the complete cut – Part 1 on one ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Incredible new work from Tony Drake – a singer who recorded briefly for Brunswick and Musicor back in the day, and the artist who originally wrote this hit for The Chi-Lites!

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!

A great groover from Dyke!

Nice groove to the cut ... read more 7-inch, Vinyl record
