THE RETURNS DESK
Not exactly the newest releases but that's never bothered me. These are still in the bag...
LEROSA – Ruski (Real Soon)
Downtempo house with an addictive, chopped up break.
KIDS FROM BRADY BUNCH – Drummer Man (Dynamite Soul)
Novelty funk re-press from the 1972 Brady Bunch LP
BURIAL - Ghost Hardware (Hyperdub)
Fire, rain and vinyl crackle. Not a wah wah bass line in sight. Original Dubstep Material.
THE EMOTIONS - I Don't Wanna Lose Your Love (CBS)
Proper disco. You know, the one 2 Bad Mice sampled
ALDO VANUCCI – When I See You Smile (Good Living, LP sampler)
It pains me to say it but F****y S**m has turned in a good dancehall mix of this tune
VOICES OF EAST HARLEM – New Vibration (Just Sunshine)
Crackly old 7”, produced by Curtis Mayfield, sung by angels.
MR CATRA – Rio Baile FunkMore Favela Booty Beats (Essay, Austria)
I don’t know much about Baile Funk but I’m always a sucker for drum beats made up of gunshots
DJ MARLEY MARL – Urban House EP (West End Tracks)
The hip hop legend is back with a brilliant house cut based around the classic Mr Fingers b-line
THE DRAYTONES – Keep Loving Me (1965 Recordings)
Argentinean front man does Louie Louie with Revolver-era backward guitar solo.
BASEMENT JAXX - Do Your Thing (Seiji Remix) (XL)
Bugz In The Attic man strips it down to kick drum and vocal. No cheese.
