Man-o-man this fall has been like no other one I've had before. The seasonal funk hasn't sprinkled its haze over me due to the ever available dope tunes out there to keep us subtly active. The newly branded Honey Butter label should have its first release out very soon which has been giving me all sorts of life with its dreamy and delicious depth. Peep what's to come over this way. Along with that Banoffee Pie's repress of their first installment in their Limited Series is en route to my doorstep. Gems from Embezzlement Society and Admin amongst the rest of roster really set a high bar for the other releases that followed (the sixth should be in most online retailers soon). Discogs recently hosted an oober fun disco mix from Saucy Lady so glove up and clean some house to that over here this weekend.
Wrapping it up, there will be some cool content coming to ya soon from beyond the sea that we're very excited to share so be on the look out and take care until next week!!
It's a bit of a moment for LP's right now! Lindstrom, Purple Disco Machine and Manik all have great albums out now, and master of fun KiNK has one impending. Although I do love the variety and community feel of the 'Various Artist EP', it's always nice to sit back and experience an artists full cohesive vision. I was quite surprised to see that Doubledub from Christian Burkhardt had a re-release, pleasantly though, it's dispassionate vocal melody is always welcome. There's also some proper werk-out material on The Real EP from Kent Clark, 'Dance It Dub' being my pick with its bare-skin slapping snare and rolling arps. Lastly, I always feel real joy when a new Riccio release comes along and Right There on Hell Yeah is just sublime, check it. Love to ya.
I've been on an Afrocentric digging frenzy y'all. I recently found the Africa Airways reissue label/imprint, which, as you might imagine, specializes in reissuing African music, typically on the funkier side though. Anyways, I would highly suggest checking out the first single off volume four over here. The bass on that Jake Sollo cut is just mean, umff. Aside from that, I've mostly been digging through older releases, and so far, Oby Onyioha has been on constant rotation. I find myself enjoying every song in different ways, but Enjoy Your Life is just too catchy and frickin positive. I love it. The whole album is so varied too, I'll Put It Right Again is honestly one of the saddest songs I've heard in awhile. Sample that gem over here. The last LP I'll mention is a disco heater from Orlando Julius, Disco Hi-Life. The title track is just tough flames like previously mentioned, but it gets far out and almost psychedelic at points throughout. Peep that release over here. That's all for me y'all, stay positive and have fun out there.
