Oh GAMM !!! - Just Purchased....


"Thank you! Gamm drop the Fourth instalment of tributes to the Godfather of Funk! Something for everyone on here, firstup is the uptempo broken-latin flavoured rework of the ’Godfather’ from Soulparior, sure to be a dancefloor destroyer. A rugged Dilla-esque tribute from D-Frost Beats lowers the tempo for the heads, on the breaks tip the Geisha Boys drop a wicked edit of ‘The Bose’ as sampled on Nas’ ‘Get Down’. Last but not least Ayb Mob contribute a Block Rocking Old Skool Nodding number in the shape of ‘turn back the clock’ that does so in style building into a pure fire Belter! Massive 12.." From Fat City Records.

"Volume 4 of the unstoppable 'Nice Up!' series sees the London party-starters up the ante once again with 2 new genre-bending treats for your dancefloor. Having already given Damien Marley, Dizzee Rascal, Biggie Smalls, Nas and Jamie Lidell the Nice Up! fix up, this time they take on NME fave The Gossip's 'Standing In The Way Of Control', cutting the distinctive vocals of Beth Ditto to a classic skanking riddim, resulting in what sounds like a Jagerbomb-soaked moshpit at Coxsone Dodd's Downbeat soundsystem. Over on the flip, diminutive rapper Skee Lo sees his anthemic 90s hip hop ode to lost love riding the much slept on 'Oh Jah' from Brighton's Black Grass. Adding some dubwise effects and retaining some of the original vocals, this has already been caned by the likes of Daddy G (Massive Attack), Jstar and the Beatvandals, and should see some heavy rotation throughout the summer." (JUNO RECORDS)

A NIGHT AT THE JAZZ ROOMS 7" - The Pipe/Peter Nero (MRB 7058)

"Double header version excursion pressure. The A side is a Latin - Funk version of the Ramsey Lewis classic by Spanish band The Pipe which is a dance floor filler on the modern day Mod scene. 'Soulful Strut' otherwise known as 'Am I The Same Girl' was a big hit back in the sixties and here Peter Nero gives it a big band arrangement with vocal swoons to boot!!" (Phonica Records)

Side 1

1. The Pipe - "Wade In The Water"

THE FUNKY INSTRUMENTALS 45 7" (DJ Mitsu The Beats Production) - GAGLE (MUKAT 007)

"Nik Weston's Mukatsuku label steps up with it's first release of 2008 and what a blinder! With an impressive back catalogue, this vinyl only imprint can always be trusted to uncover a gem and this, the seventh release on the label raises the bar even higher. One of Japans most respected hip hop producers of recent times, DJ Mitsu The Beats has been responsible for many a classic on labels such as Jazzy Sport, Stone Throw and Blue Note - all straddling the jazz/hip hop/broken beat sound perfectly.

Here he serves up 2 exclusive instrumentals from his 3 piece hip hop outfit Gagle, of whom he is the producer. The A Side ´Eastern Voyage´ is a jazzy hip hop instrumental, evoking the classic sound of Smash Hunters 'Fat Jazzy Grooves' series. Heavy on the head nod, but also fat enough to rock the spot. Over on the flip, the breaks come thick and fast on 'Kuro Fessional MC' - a simple but effective peak time funk rocker
