VariousBoogie Breakdown – South African Synth Disco 1980 to 1984 ... CD
Cultures Of Soul, Early 80s. New Copy ... $14.99 15.98
There's no breakdown to the boogie here – as the album's overflowing with stunning sounds that are right up there with better-known club music from the early 80s – every bit as full of basslines, beats, and keyboards as the best tracks from the American scene of the period, but maybe even more stripped-down and biting overall! As the title announces, the music here is all from South Africa of the late Apartheid years – a time that's usually summed up by music of protest, but which also required some moments of letting off steam – the kind of grooves that are featured in this set! The sound is warmer than you'd expect from the "synth" in the title, too – more like electro funk overall, with a great sense of sharp rhythms and nicely focused vocals – some of which echo older South African modes, but which still often nod more strongly to US dancefloor soul. Titles include "Party" and "Good Vies" by Harari, "Hey Tonight" and "We Keep On Keeping On" by Cannibals, "I Wanna Be Myself" and "Let's Groove Tonight" by Don Laka, "Perfect Love" and "Breakdown" by Neville Nash, "Flash A Flashlight" and "I Just Keep Dancing" by Benjamin Ball, and "You've Got Love" and "Hold Onto Love" by Al Etto.

✨✧ Bobby ValentinSe La Comio ... CD
Fania, Late 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
If a cover was enough, this album would already be great – but it's also one of the hardest-grooving sets from Bobby Valentin, cut at the end of the 60s with a heavy early salsa groove! Bobby's really stepping off his Latin soul work nicely with the set – moving into a realm of longer, more complicated songs that's handled with a style that's got a timeless edge – that nice shift he made towards more expansive styles after leaving New York for Puerto Rico! Yet there's also some key elements from the earlier years in place – especially that sharp, hard sense of a groove that made Valentin a key bridge beween the Latin Soul generation and the rising salsa scene of the 70s. Titles include "Que Mujer", "Beribicua", "Son Son Charari", "Grarambembere", and "Me Abandonaste". CD
