This Friday, July 7, 2017 we celebrate the long-awaited reissue of Alec Mansion’s self-titled LP via Be With Records.
Boogie Funk aficionados have been looking forward to this reissue for a long while, especially considering that the original pressing is quite expensive and obviously hard to find. Read More
I was highly anticipating the project “Dream On”, being a huge fan of Bybo‘s work for the past 3-4 years, and the Karlsruhe native did not come short. Along with the help of First Touch’s magistral composition aesthetics, this 6 track EP travels with ease through the spectrums of Modern Funk, Boogie, New Jack & G-Funk. Read More.
The 1st of July usually marks the celebration of Canada for many folks living in this country, but for me, it signifies the 1st release of DâM-FunK‘s newest label, Glydezone Recordings. What better way to launch your label than with the extremely talented Nite Jewel, with who DâM collaborated back in 2009. Read more.
For any music enthusiast, there’s a notion of having your “go-to” record labels; labels that you necessarily buy every releases, often without having to listen to them in the 1st place. It was the case for me with labels such as CTI Records, Chocolate Cholly, Loud Records, BBE Records, just to name a few. Which brings me to the Miami based Cosmic Chronic label. Read More.
Born To Shine Records are back with their 2nd instalment, this one from my main brother Frankfurt Funk. The label didn’t had to look too far for their quest to expose the variety and immense talent that Germany has to offer. Read more.
Midnight Runners are back, and this time, via Hobo Camp (the new label of Randy “Hotthobo” Ellis – also co-founder of Voltaire Records). 1st project to appear on the new label, Fantasy Touch is a 4 track EP, with two instrumentals cuts, and 2 vocal cuts, featuring the soothing voice of Megan Doherty (half of Social Lovers). Read More.
Omega Supreme Records just released 2 EP’s – K-Maxx‘s “For The Record” and First Touch “Knockout”. This double release format has become a standard for the label, and I think it’s a great thing (except for my wallet). Read more.
Closing out the year with an EP from First Touch, “Daycruising“, via Born To Shine Records. The Manheim duo have 2 solid releases coming out in 2016 (the other one via Omega Supreme Records). Read More.
