Clean your needle! This is a wonderful piece of vinyl.

This is a nice new project from Marc Mac. Soulful, spacey and makes me long for a Marc Mac & Dego re up. Solid one of the best eps for 2018.

Been waiting a long time to see this released. “Which Way Is Up” is pure gut bucket funk and one of the best Norman Whitefield productions. “What You Waiting For” is another stormer that as a bonus track would make this a worthy release. However, if I am ... See full review

Copped this on Record Store day 2018. Was not familiar with this beforehand but have been on a Sun Ra kick of late and decided to have at it. There were three other RSD Ra releases and could not cop them all. Selected this out of the bunch mainly because ... See full review

Very good late period recording from Dionne Warwick. Great song selection, very good production and wonderful vocal stylings. This has aged very well in the last twenty plus years since its original release. A real favorite.

Can’t really understand the slagging off of GP - guy has been trailblazing since Talking Loud days and right up to the now with his Brownsoods label. He has good ears and is able to straddle many musical communities and present them to a worldwide ... See full review

A really discounted work from the PFunk universe. Unfortunately so because there are some essential cuts that expand on the PFunk sound and include some of the last recordings by the wonderful Belita Woods. Check Both versions of Anyone Gets Funked Up, ... See full review

Beautiful track - classic remixes. Years of spins on this.

Epic aurreal pleasure capturing a moment of disco rawness that cannot be duplicated in this digital era. The stars aligned on this one. Puts to shame the Ashford and Simpson original!

Singular record-- engrossing and well conceived. A current favorite that's been well worth the wait.
posted a review of Volcov Presents Isoul8 - Balance. over 4 years ago
Balance by Isoul8 is an overall great project. NIne years since its release nine years, it has stood the test of time in terms of quality and musical relevancy. It's a classy, classic project that has not dated. IT's also worth scoring the singles and ... See full review
posted a review of Isoul8 Featuring Osunlade, Rasiyah & Just One - Speak Your Word. over 4 years ago
The star track for me is the Just One remix of Free. Jazzy and bruk the way I like it. The Osunlade remix is also fire. Dynamite platter overall. My question is who is left in 2015 playing these type of tracks these day? For future discovery I ... See full review

Actually a very good return to form for the purple one. IMHO -- not a bad track on it and it is a steady grower. It's charms unfold steadily over time.

I just picked up the Japanese reissue. I think the engineering on this is really good, particularly on I Love It. Did you have a hand in the update? In any case, the masters used for the remastering must have been real good. I had the 12 inch of Love ... See full review
