Ivory ... LP SKJ/Mondo Groove (Italy), 1981. New Copy (reissue)...
Out Of Stock
A record from that time when the Nigerian scene was really keeping pace with changes in soul music on the other side of the Atlantic – as you'll hear in the way that Kio Amachree serves up the grooves! Kio's the lead force here – not just on vocals, but also guitar and production as ... (Global Grooves) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Basic Group —
Expander ... LP Tic/Mondo Groove (Italy), 1985. New Copy (reissue)...
Out Of Stock
A sweet keyboard-heavy sound library set from the 80s – a record from that time when the sound library studios had gone down to one or two man performances, instead of the fuller groups from the past – and were making best use of the keyboard and drum machine elements of the time to ...

A funky soul record with a really great pedigree – tracks recorded by a Nigerian group, but done up in London with a vibe that's very much like some of the best east coast soul of the time! There's a style here that's not unlike some of the best club work of the P&P Records generation ... (Soul) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
We're not sure we've ever seen many computers at the disco – but after hearing this sweet little set from the 80s, we're tempted to bring our laptops along the next time we go clubbing! The tracks are all spare instrumentals with an electro soul core – tunes that are upbeat and ... (Sound Library) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Honey Machine —
Honey Machine ... LP Grandstar/Mondo Groove (Italy), 1982. New Copy (reissue)...
Out Of Stock
A clubby classic from the Nigerian duo of Sega Gafatchi and Chris Ify Hanem – and a record that maybe feels a lot more like some of the coolest work from the US and Anglo scenes at the time – complete with all sorts of spacey keyboards that really give the album a distinctive sound! ...

Louis Band —
Taste Me ... LP Blitz/Mondo Groove (Italy), 1981. New Copy ...
The "Louis" in the band here is Louis Vanni – an Italian sound library arranger who cooked up this rare batch of instrumental grooves in the studio! The approach is funk, but of a varied sort – sometimes more disco, sometimes more soundtrack – occasionally with the ... (Sound Library) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Eri Ohno —
Good Question ... LP Columbia/Mondo Groove (Italy), 1981. New Copy (reissue)...
Out Of Stock
Lovely work from Eri Ohno – one of the deeper voiced singers in the city pop generation, and an artist who's able to work here with a nice mix of soulful styles! The record's got some leaner backings than other projects of this nature – really just a small combo, pictured with Eri on ... (Japanese) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Skorpio ... LP Mondo Groove (Italy), 1984. New Copy ...
The sleeveless shirt and sunglasses give away the 80s origin of this obscure electro set from the 80s – music recorded on the German scene, but with some of the better elements of the catchy sounds that UK artists had brought to their work at the start of the decade! In other words, Skorpio's ... (Rock) read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Juan Pablo Torres —
Cuba Disco ... LP On The Rocks/Mondo Groove (France), 1984. New Copy (reissue)...
One of the most unusual albums ever cut by the legendary Latin jazz trombonist Juan Pablo Torres – and one of the grooviest, too – a special set that was recorded in Milan in the mid 80s, with backings by a sweet group who do a great job of blending Latin rhythms, clubby grooves, and ...

A heady serving of work from the Drums label – a small and short-lived imprint on the Italian scene in the late 70s, but one that served up some mighty nice club singles at the time! The records definitely bristle with the kind of drums you might expect from the record's name – not ... (Funky Compilations) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
I-Robots take a mighty cool look at the Phantom Records label – a small imprint from that great moment when the Italian club scene was getting pretty electric and cosmic – almost as a dancefloor extension of sound library modes from a few years before! The cuts here all have plenty of ... (Funky Compilations) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
