Ricky Tick is a label that is not constanly on my radar, although they consistently release quality jazz and the occasional funk/soul album (stance brothers). With the releases discussed in this review, by Dalindèo and Timo Lassy, they still manage to show their passion for quality and soul in jazz. Both albums display energy and [...]
I can be very short about this band. If you like raw funk then this is a no-brainer. Buy this music! There are two shiny discs of black gold that harbour every deliciously raw tune these funksters have ever put out and it’s all good!
The tracks I think stand out most are ‘Kick Out The [...]
It might seem simple to review this first BadboE full album release. I mean, it’s just a bunch of samples, rehashed and reworked with a funky breakbeat so it works better on the dance floor, right?
Yes, this album is full of samples. Yes, it is full of funky breakbeats. And hell yes, it will work [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
The limited edition Vinyl EP + CD album already sold out its 500 copies, and the CD album is availble to order from etchshop since April 27th. The official release date was postponed by two weeks to May 5th, so let’s jump on the bandwagon of praise for Stonephace and write yet another review.
For those [...]
Thanks to colleagues RundFunk, I can point you all to check out the new album by dutch hammond funk group The Rare Groove Orchestra. Listen to the new tracks on their myspace, or a compilation of tracks in this RundFunk blog post. Higly recommended!

This will be great, I’m sure. This is one of the most higly anticipated albums of 2008 for me! Also go buy [...]
Just dicovered: Hotpolitics. Judging from the 4 tracks on their myspace page, this is a tight grooving modern funk band. Hotpolitics is once again a tight funk band from America and proves there are still new acts to be discovered every day!
To be released soon: Mr. Confuse (myspace) – Feel The Fire CD/2LP – Légègere [...]
