    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
    (jcr 12")
    - 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,
