Mike's Bag
Dime (UK), 2003. Used
A fab little CD – mod instrumental grooves with a heavy funk sound that's as best as the best of the 70s sound library scene! The Mike Lee Sound are a British group, and they clearly draw inspiration from the landmark work cut at UK studios like KPM and DeWolfe in the 70s – hitting ... CD

Scratch My Itch
Unique (Germany), 2012. Used
A solid second album from the Soul Snatchers – a confident, soulful set and the Dutch funky soul collective – bettering their debut and delivering one of our favorite records on the Unique label! Like some of our other favorite contemporary combos, The Soul Snatchers snatch from a ... CD

Set-Up
Electraphonic, 2010. Used
The City Champs are at it again – and sounding even funkier than the first time around! This set's an amazing batch of Hammond-heavy instrumentals – one that really revels in the lean, mean, Memphis heritage of Booker T & the MGs – with all the tight, funky elements that ... CD

Stones Throw, 2009. Very Good+ (pic cover)
Messed-up boogie from Dam-Funk – an incredible little set that takes the bass-heavy grooves of the early 80s, and blows them up with a real Stones Throw sensibility! There's no samples here – just lots of heavy beats, bass, and keyboard bits from Dam – really recorded with a ... 12-inch, Vinyl record

Introducing Slim Moore & The Mar-Kays
Marlow/Cosmic Groove (France), 2011. Used
One of the best new funk albums we've heard in years – and one that really does an amazing job of putting equal emphasis on intrumentation and deep soul vocals! Slim Moore comes across like some lost singer from the early 70s funky 45 generation – gritty and upfront, with a quality ... CD

Ubiquity, 2015. New Copy
Sweet and salty psych-soul-rock-funk from Adrian Quesada and Shawn Lee, working together as The Electric Peanut Butter Company! They're a company of just 2, handling every aspect themselves, but if you if ever heard anything by either party, you know this is going to have a huge sound. Lots of ... CD

Ubiquity, 2015. New Copy
A brilliant take on vintage sounds by Cornwall combo The Mighty Sceptres – seamlessly mixing vintage funky group soul styles! As much as we dug their earlier 7-inch on Ubiquity, we're pretty much floored by how much deeper this excellent full length cuts! Singer Angeline Morrison has a way ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ubiquity, 2014. New Copy
A really great second album from Ikebe Shakedown – easily the group's best work so far, and a real cut above the usual Afro-styled groove! These guys have a great way of laying back in their rhythms – still keeping things funky, but nicely paced too – so that there's a fresh feel ... LP, Vinyl record album

Unstraight Ahead
Now Again, 2014. New Copy Gatefold
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 ... CD

This Generation In Dub
Stones Throw, 2014. New Copy
A dubbed-up version of The Lions album This Generation – done at a level that's very faithful to the format, especially considering the classic Kingston vibe of the original versions! There's a few new bits here – greatly extrapolated from the album's recordings – but most ... CD

Stone By Stone
Ubiquity, 2014. New Copy
A really great second album from Ikebe Shakedown – easily the group's best work so far, and a real cut above the usual Afro-styled groove! These guys have a great way of laying back in their rhythms – still keeping things funky, but nicely paced too – so that there's a fresh feel ... CD

Conversations
Royal Potato, 2014. New Copy
One of the most solid records we've ever heard from drummer Stanton Moore – and a set that's got to be his greatest jazz session to date! Moore's still got all the playful kick he brought to his drums during more funk-based years – but he's working here in a trio with the wonderful ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
My World – Instrumentals
Truth & Soul, 2009. New Copy
Killer instrumentals from the My World album by Lee Fields – a set that features none of Lee's vocals at all – just some great slow funk grooves by The Expressions! The vibe here is wonderful – even without Fields on deck – and in a way, leaving the vocals off unlocks a ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Truth & Soul, 2012. New Copy
Smoking soul from the mighty Lee Fields – and a set that really has him getting back to his roots, as well! The record's billed as a follow-up to the previous My World – but it's got a style that's much more deep soul, much more southern-tinged than that great record – a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Illuminate
Now Again, 2013. Used
A brilliant record from future groove beacon Mr Chop! Now billed simply as Chop, having chopped off the honorific title, the man otherwise known as Coz Littler delivers his tightest and most compelling work to date! His past few releases recast classic synth funk, Krautrock and spacey soundtrack ... CD

Black Beauty, 2004. Used
Heady electric funk from Om Trio – a group that's stepped in the 70s tradition of work by Miles Davis and Herbie Hancock, but who also manage to cook things up with a leaner sort of deep funk approach! The trio features Mushroom's Brian Felix on keyboards and organ – really jamming ... CD
