William Onyeabor’s “Good Name” by Joakim feat. Akwetey

Somewhat of a cult musician, William Onyeabor is the Nigerian funk artist who incorporated synthesisers into his pop productions decades before others producers thought to have a go. A collection of his tracks from the 1970’s were re-released in October …

Mike Simonetti – Get Lost

Mike Simonetti turns in a chugging disco edit of Billy Byrd’s ‘Lost In The Crowd’. The funky bassline and uproarious vocals are all correct and present, with some additional steel-tipped percussion. Serious party fodder. For another great version of this …

West Norwood Cassette Library – Acid Jazz (Bonus Beats)

London producer Bob Bhamra (a.k.a. West Norwood Cassette Library) has just released his 8 Track Cartridge EP. Swinging closer to his rugged house material (think 2010′s Blonde on Blonde) than his typically bassier stuff, this album is nothing short …

Christy Essien – You Can’t Change A Man (Borrowed Identity Edit)

Christy Essien Igbokwe’s 1979 Afro-funk gem ’You Can’t Change A Man’ has been reemerging lately thanks in no small part to the African Shakedown 12″ released earlier in the year, which brought together four long-lost Afro-disco edits. Here, Borrowed Identity …

A freebie from Cuthead’s superb hip hop/house LP out last month (read our review here), title track ‘Everlasting House’ encapsulates the downbeat, sometimes erratic nature of the album. Orchestral strings slide in and out of the track as fuzzy …
