"On The Beat" is one of the greatest dancefloor tracks from the 80s – a solid sender with a blend of funk and disco, made even better with a great hook, and a classic sound that never gets old! The cut's a crossover classic from years back, and you get it here in two versions! 12-inch, Vinyl record

One of our favorite tunes from the old school – a beautiful blend of vocoder vocals, sinister keyboards, and some cool splashy beats! This one ties it all together – the sound of the streets, the experiments of the import scene, and the changing energy in the clubs – all with a perfect blend of moods, and that wicked "D-d-d-d-d-d-ominatrix" chant! 12-inch, Vinyl record

One of the biggest classics from Sharon Redd's early 80s run on Prelude Records – a beat-heavy tune that's also got some sweet electric touches! There's a nice hook running through the whole tune – made even nicer by Sharon's vocals – and the single also features a mix by Francois K! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Salsoul, 1977. Very Good ... $9.99
Nice stuff! After coming out of the box as a heavier funk outfit in the early 70s, Ripple changed their tune for the disco years – stretching their groove into a warm clubby sound that's stayed classic for years and years! "Beat Goes On & On" is one of their greatest cuts from this time – a strident groover that had a big influence on the house scene in Chicago! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Vanguard, 1984. Near Mint- ... $14.99
Rare early 12" by Chuck D's first group, with credits that list Carlton Ridenhour and Hank Boxley. The production's what you might expect at the time, and not totally Bomb Squad, but you can hear Chuck developing his voice, and getting his ideas together, especially on the track "Check Out the Radio". A bit of history, and one that was tough to find even in the 80's. 12-inch, Vinyl record

CotoneteInside Outside – First EP Series Vol 1 ... 12-inch
Heavenly Sweetness (France), 2017. New Copy ... $19.99
A jazzy instrumental with a very classic vibe – served up with some especially nice keyboard work from Florian Pellissier – who you might know from records issued under his own name! "Inside Outside" owes a fair bit to 70s funky jazz for inspiration – but it's also got a crackling sort of rhythm approach – played live, but maybe inherited a bit from the broken beat generation – which gives the music an urgently current vibe. Side one features the long core track of the tune – originally written by MPS legend Joanne Grauer – and side two features two Phil Asher/Restless Soul reworks. 12-inch, Vinyl record

Def Jam, 1988. Very Good+ (pic cover)... $1.99
Davy D is better known as Davy DMX of "One For The Treble" fame. "Ohh Girl" is a later track with some nice primitive cutting and scratching over what was then a sort of crossover electro beat, while the flip is a bit harder, with a short rhyme at the end. 12-inch, Vinyl record

FocusZulu EP ... 12-inch
Crown Ruler (Australia), 1983. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... $16.99
Electro soul from the Johannesburg – a trio of tracks that's a fair bit different than most of the South African material you might know from the time! "Hay Hay" is a real beat street sort of track – Linn drum beats and Roland keyboards, percolating in a very catchy groove – with lyrics that mostly just repeat the title phrase in rising and descending ways! "Rock Batlanga" picks up the bassline a bit more, but also kicks in more keys too – which makes for a nice bit of electro funk – and "Moger" has some lean rhythm programs at points, topped by tenor and some warmer keyboards! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Delicious Vinyl, 2017. New Copy (pic cover)... $19.99
Previously unreleased fire from Frank N Dank and producer Jay Dee! Gritty, beat heavy, rumbling genius from Dilla in straight forward, floor-shaking style – the perfect backdrop for the on beat, focused rhymes. Includes vocal and instrumental versions of "Let's Go", "Things Ain't The Same" and "Reach For The Sky". 12-inch, Vinyl record

Dizzy GillespieManteca (Funky Lowlives rmx, original) – Verve Remixed 2 ... 12-inch
Verve, 2003. Near Mint- ... $7.99
A great take on a famous Dizzy Gillespie tune! Dizzy first wrote the Latin groover "Manteca" back in the 50s, but performed it here on a 1961 live show – in a longer style that's got lots of great piano and a blasting trumpet solo. The Funky Lowlives take both of these elements and work them up strongly in their remix – really sailing the tune nicely, and giving it a whole new beat-heavy sound! 12-inch, Vinyl record
(In a stickered sleeve.)

Raw Shack, 1995. Sealed ... $14.99
Definitely one of the independent label classics of 1995. We've always preferred this original version of "Braggin Writes" that sounds like it was recorded with nothing more than the dj cutting the beat live in the studio behind J-Live's verses (instead of using a rhythm track and then just adding the scratches later.) 12-inch, Vinyl record
(Blue label pressing.)

Paisley Park, 1987. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... On August 11, 2017
Sure, the politics seem a bit silly now – but the track's still one of Prince's last really compelling hits. It's got a totally infectious hook, a spare Timmy Thomas-ish beat, and a strangely captivating vocal that really sticks with us. The flip's a bit silly – a 10 minute extended number with a silly jam kind of feel. 12-inch, Vinyl record

Tatham, Mensah, Lord, & RanksTwo Way Here One Way Go/No Facetime/BBQ ... 12-inch
2000 Black (UK), 2017. New Copy ... $9.99
Fantastic work from this cosmic groove quartet – a group who are continuing to push the future spirit of the London scene into great new dimensions! "Two Way Here One Way Go" has this groove that's definitely broken beat, but which also features lots of live percussion too – including an instrument that almost sounds like a balafon, which gives an organic vibe to the cut – plus some cool Fela-like electric piano! "No Facetime" is nice and jazzy – really warm piano that runs at a nice contrast to the sharper grooves – and "BBQ" is maybe a bit more conventional club, but still totally great overall! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Anita WardRing My Bell/Make Believe Lovers ... 12-inch
TK, 1979. Near Mint- ... $6.99
What can we say? "Ring My Bell" was one of the biggest crossover disco tracks of the late 70s – with a cool electronic groove on the beat, and lyrics and production by Frederick Knight, making the southern soul singer one of the more unlikely disco forces of the time. This 12" single features the full 8 minute version – with the "Midnight Mix" by Richie Rivera. 12-inch, Vinyl record

WhatnautsHelp Is On The Way (voc, inst) ... 12-inch
Harlem International, 1981. Very Good ... $14.99
An obscure later tune by The Whatnauts – issued years after their classics for All-Platinum in the early 70s – but proof that the group is always great, no matter what the setting! This tune's got a mean mean boogie groove – and was sampled to great fame by De La Soul in "Ring Ring Ring", but stands beautifully on is own. There's a rollerskating bounce to the track that's completely sublime – and the tune steps on and on and on without missing a beat! Not on any LP, either! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Chip WickhamRed Planet (Andres rmx)/La Sombra (Carlos Nino's Spaceways Radio edit & additions) ... 12-inch
Lovemonk (Spain), 2017. New Copy (pic cover)... $11.99
A sweet single that re-presents two tracks from the La Sombra album by Chip Wickham – one of our favorite spiritual jazz sets in recent years! "Red Planet" takes off into cosmic broken beat territory – more electrified complex rhythms driving at the core, while Chip's flute still gets a bit of a solo over the top! Carlos Nino brings his heady touch to "La Sombra" – really expanding the music with almost an early 70s Impulse Records vibe – as the flute and vibes have a great sense of warm exploration, amidst some other subtle sonic elements that really set the mood! 12-inch, Vinyl record

World RenownHow Nice I Am (radio edit, inst, drum-a-pella, acapella, album) ... 12-inch
Warner, 1994. Very Good+ ... $9.99
From that period in the mid-90's when major labels were signing groups who did mellow, thoughtful hip hop. Of course they dropped them all soon after, but they still managed to put out a few nice tracks in the meantime. This one uses Phife's line "A funky introduction to how nice I am" from "Check The Rhime" as the chorus, and uses a sound similar to some of the early Souls of Mischief tracks, with maybe a little harder beat produced by K-Def of Real Live fame. 12-inch, Vinyl record

Not the famous "Ling Ching Tong" tune of doo wop fame, but a new track by Joe from his Latin disco years. The track's got a Salsoul type beat, but Joe's sticking to his Latin soul approach with the lyrics – despite the modern sound of the production and backings. Marty Sheller arranged, too! 12-inch, Vinyl record

A cool little platter of spacey disco inspired Chicao dancefloor grooves! "We Ain't Goin' Nowhere" is a bouncy jam with soul steeped vocals and an unshakeable, surely floor filling vibe! Also includes tripped out Pontchartrain remix, with delicate keys and a heavy beat, and the fast moving, slightly tenser club jam "Aaaahhh!". Irresistible stuff! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Chocolate Industries, 2003. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
"Explosive" is right! The A-side here is a furiously cut and scratched pounder, courtesy of RJD2, with a great guest vocal spot by Lyrics Born. If anyone were to ask for our top 5 hip hop singles of '03, be they indie, major or galactic, "Explosive" would certainly be on there. Madlib touches the flip side "Ain't Right" with his trademark jazzy-mellow sound washes, and a fast, post-drum & bass beat clip. Pure greatness, on both sides! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Nice mid tempo club groover with a fast two-beat groove that's sort of along the same style as "Last Night A DJ Saved My Life". The a-side's got some James Brown-esque vocals, but the instrumental's a nice one, with some choppy guitar, and sparkling keyboard solos. 12-inch, Vinyl record
(Promo. Label has a sticker spot and ink stamps.)
