Adrian Younge Presents The Delfonics
Linear Labs, 2013. New Copy (reissue)
A really stunning little record – way more than we expected – and our expectations were already pretty darn high! The album's contemporary – and features legendary Delfonics lead singer William Hart working with younger studio whiz Adrian Younge – who gives the whole thing ... LP, Vinyl record album
Curao
Tru Thoughts (UK), 2017. New Copy
Will "Quantic" Holland has really turned out to be a hell of a fellow – a guy we first fell in love with as a beatmaker, then as a funk artist – and now as one of the few people who can ever mix grooves with global elements and make the whole thing come out sounding right! ... CD
Sr Langosta, 2017. New Copy
CD...$8.99 13.99
A Caribbean experiment, but one that's more funky than anything else – served up here in a swirling blend of guitar, bass, keyboards, and horns – all with lots of very groovy touches around the edges! The front cover might make these guys look like a jamband, or one of those less-than-g ... CD
Chase The Light
Gee (France), 2017. New Copy
Funky keyboards and dubby grooves – a great little record that's as much inspired by Jamaican music as it is the longer legacy of American funky jazz! Soul Sugar first started giving us 45s about a decade ago, but their sound has really matured over the years – as leader/keyboard ... CD
Look Closer
Daptone, 2015. New Copy
The mighty debut of Saun & Starr – a female soul duo who have been best known for their backing work behind Sharon Jones – stepping out here into the spotlight with some great support from the Dap-Kings! Although funky, the duo also have more of a deep soul approach than Sharon ... CD
Special Night – Instrumentals
Big Crown, 2016. New Copy
Lee Fields & The Expressions, without any Lee Fields at all! What does that leave you with? Some great instrumental grooves – served up with loads of excellent guitar, bass, drums, keyboards, and sax from Leon Michels and the group – in a mode that brings together an El Michels ... LP, Vinyl record album
Unstraight Ahead (with download)
Now Again, 2014. New Copy 2 LPs
They definitely got the title right on this one – because the group never seems to move in any sort of direct line – instead always tripping around nicely with all these hip little twists and turns! Karl Hector & The Malcouns are the same loose collective of players you'll know ... LP, Vinyl record album
Big Crown, 2017. New Copy
El Michels return again to the Wu-Tang chambers – and the results this time might even be better than before! Wu-Tang forged their initial sound out of a love of offbeat samples and unusual funk – so it's only fitting that one of the hippest funk groups around strip the music right ... LP, Vinyl record album

Dunham/Daptone, 2011. New Copy
Gritty, powerful raw soul from Charles Bradley – the full length debut from the 62-year-old Brooklyn singer – backed perfectly by The Menahan Street Band! It's incredible, a record that sounds just as rawly emotional and impeccably soulful in 2011 as it would have in 1971 – much ... CD
Return To The 37th Chamber
Big Crown, 2017. New Copy
El Michels return again to the Wu-Tang chambers – and the results this time might even be better than before! Wu-Tang forged their initial sound out of a love of offbeat samples and unusual funk – so it's only fitting that one of the hippest funk groups around strip the music right ... CD
Islands
Legere (France), 2017. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
A record with a cosmic cover, but a sound that's very down to earth – fierce deep funk, in the best Legere Records mode – played by a group who are currently one of the hardest-hitting acts on the funky label! The music's got the full-on power of Afro Funk – especially in the way ... LP, Vinyl record album
Soul Run
Record Kicks (Italy), 2017. New Copy
The first full-length from Tanika Charles – a deep funk singer with a difference! Tanika definitely works in some of the old school soul modes that you'll know from other artists on the Record Kicks label – but there's also a bit more of a contemporary crackle to her music, too – ... CD
Victim Of Love
Dunham/Daptone, 2013. New Copy
CD...$8.99 14.99
Damn amazing work from Charles Bradley – an instant soul classic for all generations, as you'll hear from the very first note! Not only are Bradley's vocals incredible – the kind of once-in-a-long-time approach he brought to his debut – but the backings and production are ... CD
Tuxedo II
Stones Throw, 2017. New Copy
A fantastic second set from the team of Mayer Hawthorne and Jake One – working here with some great help from Will Sessions on a number of tracks – an artist who really ups the funky ante of the record! The vibe is mostly in an early 80s funk mode – strong boogie grooves in the ... CD
Daptone, 2016. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
Partly a soundtrack to the film on the life and music of the mighty Sharon Jones – partly a collection of some of her best tracks, with a bonus cut that's previously unreleased! The music here documents the amazing run of modern funk we've heard from Ms Jones & The Dap-Kings – a ... LP, Vinyl record album
Daptone, 2000s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
A killer compilation of Daptone Gold – a funky and soulful collection that's a perfect snapshot of the sounds coming out of Daptone's House Of Soul recording studios in the aughties! The Daptone sound spins from a tight community of players with the deepest love and respect for the classic, ... LP, Vinyl record album
Give The People What They Want (with download)
Daptone, 2014. New Copy
Tremendous work from Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings – a set that took a bit longer to hit the racks than expected, but which really shows a richness that more than makes up for the delay! Sharon's a singer who's always been great – but she steps out strongly here with a sense of ... LP, Vinyl record album
