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 [...]
Although I thoroughly love the deep funk & soul grooves by the Bamboos, I feel that in these songs, the sparkle is missing. Sure, Kylie Auldist has the soul and she pours it all out like she should in ‘On the Sly’. And yes, Lyrics Born provides floor filling shouty lyrics on ‘Turn it Up’ [...]
“Turn It Up” featuring Lyrics Born – Digital single by The Bamboos. First thoughts when reading the press release: Party! Then, upon hearing it the first time: Party! But upon repeated listening, Hysterics Born’s voice starts to get a tad annoying, as he is singing at the top of his, no, scratch that. He [...]
@organzola posted his ‘Woohoo’ to twitter already, which translates roughly to: Finally the DrawBar Remixed 12″ is out!
It’s called DrawBar Reorganized, and contains remixes by Dr Rubberfunk, JD73, Black Grass, AIFF and is completed by a rework by the gentlemen themselves and just like the album it’s on CounterPoint Records.
For me as a DJ, a [...]
I already mentioned them reminding me of ‘Gorillas in the mist’ in this tweet (in response to this tweet, in turn a response to this one). Now that the day has come to actually write something, let’s start from this comparison. Like gorrillas in the mist, Laura Vane & the Vipertones will hit you hard [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
Update: the 7″ is available for purchase @ etchshop now!
Although the release date is more than a month away and there are other reviews that I still have to finish of music that will be released before this item, I just have to publish this now. So here it goes…
A new Quantic album is always [...]
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 [...]
