some stuff that has made it to me on august:
1. akwaaba people - what am i gonna do (deep funk 7")
- a perfect modern soul winner from uk's akwaaba people of keb darge's deep
funk label. sounds genuine 7ts, but is brand new!
2. annariitta minkkinen - on oltava meri (love lp)
- the seventies finnish political songs movement at it's finest: not just
agitation, but MUSIC as well! a bit jazzy, a bit folk-soul-esque track sung
in finnish. features olli ahvenlahti of 'grandmas rocking chair' fame on
rhodes. thus, quality stuff. based on a poem by nazim hikmet.
3. alton miller - love inside (nite grooves 12")
- a classy soulful vocal house track.
4. marijo - rio maravinha (mr. bongo 7")
- a boogaloo-ish brazil vocal track. if european football chants would be as
cool and groovy as this i wouldn't buy anythin' else!
5. universe city - can you get down (midland international lp)
- a perfect and groovy-as-fuck modern soul winner!
6. revelation - haven't got a lover to my name (rso lp)
- after a fat-as-hell break a soul heaven begins!
7. james taylor quartet feat. lara rose - free (blowin hard 7")
- jtq mucho funkier and rawer than usual. bad ass vocals and flute solos!
8. people under the stairs - the dig (om lp)
- a track about diggin' crates and findin' shit. sums perfectly up my
attitude towards life . haven't got as much as 70 crates of vinyl though..
9. freestyle man ft. wanda felicia - que domingue inquieto - montana rija
jazz (puu 12")
- you know the feeling when something hides in your record shelves screaming
for attention and you finally find it! i've always been so blinded by
freestyle man's 1997 original that i found this one just yesterday! stupid
10. alistair colling vs. tortured soul - when you find your love, hold on -
when you find your remix (central park 12")
- i loved the original but i this tortured soul workout goes way further.
again a find from my own record shelves. been there for months, found it
olny recently - been listening to the original on the flipside before that.
11. jazztronik - dizzin' - soundmen on wax rmx (flower 12")
- a classy brazil-influenced cut indeed.
12. jt donaldson - in the name of love (lowdown 12")
- a deep and soulful track perfect for the late moments just before sunrise.
13. koop - relaxin at club f----n - dorfmeister vas madrid de los austrias
- an excellent remix of an excellent track that keeps staying in my record
box month after month.
14. gil scott-heron - the bottle (strata east 7")
- finally got the original pressing on 45. a classic track by a living
keep on truckin,
