A really great look at an under-discovered scene, at least on our side of the Atlantic – the wealth of club and funk tracks from the UK scene at the end of the 70s and start of the 80s – served up here by the great Joey Negro, who's given us more than a few great grooves of his own over the years! The sounds here are in more obscure territory than the earliest work by Incognito, but come from a similar vein – a real love of the best styles of American soul, funk, and club of the 70s – but served up in modes that are sometimes more underground, given the smaller circulation, and different cultural makeup of the British scene. A few grooves have some great electro touches, others have warmer jazz
