    [review] Kinny – Back Street Lust // Remixes (TRUDD010)

    Posted on September 8th, 2009 by zephirnl

    Ever since the release of ‘Shapes 08:01‘, the track ‘Back Street Lust’ has been a favourite of mine. The funk is so obvious but right on point and the track just makes sense. Diesler really delivered a raw funk backing to Kinny’s down and dirty love lyrics. So when Kinny‘s first album ‘Idle Forest of [...]


    [review] Kylie Auldist – Made of Stone (TRUCD197)

    Posted on August 4th, 2009 by zephirnl

    Originally, this was intended to be a thorough front-to-back review similar to my recent Quantic & His Combo Bárbaro LP review. But two things have made me decide to make it a short, small review. The most important one is that all the writing I engage in should be aimed towards one goal, and one [...]


    [review] va – Contemporary Funk (Tramp)

    Posted on July 30th, 2009 by zephirnl

    This LP came out a while ago, but still it is an LP that comes back in my iPod/iTunes regularly. This is an excellent compilation of real music, Contemporary Funk, that sees all kinds of influences, from afrobeat to jazz to soul and funk. The collection of songs have one common denominator, and that is [...]


    [Review] Quantic and His Combo Bárbaro – Tradition in Transition

    Posted on July 2nd, 2009 by zephirnl

    A while ago I reviewed the 7″ single Linda Morena, by Quantic and His Combo Bárbaro. The song I based my review on back then actually was the album version of Linda Morena, instead of the much shorter single edit (8:29 vs 4:58). This will probably mean they have drastically reduced solo time, but [...]

    Posted on May 29th, 2009 by zephirnl

    Compadres RundFunk posted news about a new Lee Fields album a few weeks ago. But since this just came to my attention recently, and there is a free track off the new album that is still available for download, this post is to remind you of Lee Fields‘ great vocal stylings. The best news is [...]

    [MPFree] Dr Rubberfunk – Funky Fever

    Posted on May 17th, 2009 by zephirnl

    Excellent cover work with a signature Rubberfunk sound, available to download for free over at SoundCloud:
    I’m afraid I cannot embed that track, but hey it’s already free to download so I’m not complaining. Luckily there’s a bunch of other tracks by Dr Rubberfunk on Soundcloud, one of which is embedded below. I believe this [...]


    [Review] Flevans – 27 Devils (CD – TRUCD191)

    Posted on May 14th, 2009 by zephirnl

    Hah! I have managed to post this just in time before the album sees its official release date on May 18th. It is already available to order from etchshop.
    In short, let’s just say I definitely  like this album. generally I like the chaotic, beats driven tracks best. Flevans has a knack for producing tracks that [...]
