KON delivers the goods, with a pair of boogiefied cuts that will have you lovingly fondling your own buttcheeks as you pivot and twerk across the living room, clad in your tightest, whitest, stretch-nylon hotpants!!

A pair of fine funk remixes, that had my best friend Babish Patel panting as he pranced around his bedroom at full speed, intoxicated with unbridled, semi-orgasmic glee. To be recommended!!
posted a comment on The Traffic - Beat It. about 1 month ago
A very pleasant, and upbeat, horn-heavy cover of “Beat It” (originally by Michael Jackson). And on the other side, you will find “Thriller” (also originally by Michael Jackson, in case you didn’t know). I think the King of Pop would give his blessing... See full review

A very nice re-edit, of possibly the best song, from The Rotary Connection. So well done, Daniel Krivit you have done us proud, and deserve a good treat, like a nice bowl of chocolate ice cream with an extra scoop and a wafer!!

When you are listening to these two sides of Hip hop funk from DJ JIMOTHY SHARP, you will likely find yourself “feelin’ good”, especially if you have drunken some of your mam’s sherry and are dancing freely with your best friend, Babish Patel!!

Soul Supreme, has done it again, with two Dilla covers that are just so perfect to listen to whilst imbibing a small paper tube full of finely ground, jazzy cabbage!!

Such a high quality, and good pressing of this seminal soul funk album from the Fat Possum record label. Something that I have always wondered about though, is the story behind the picture used on the front cover. My theory is that just as the photo... See full review

My mam, like me, loves this catchy song from Eddy Grant and his Equals. In fact, she has often declared that she would love to grow a slipper tree in our back garden. However, when I tried to help to facilitate this by planting one of her cozy,... See full review

A fine pressing from Epic that my mam’s hunky toyboy (Gavin) says, is his number one record, of all time. I have noticed this to be true, as he listens to it at every given opportunity, from when he is watching England play, to when he is on the sofa... See full review

Nick Bike, has done it again - with a triumphant James Brown edit that will have you twisting and twirling like the Godfather of Soul, himself. Just please, be careful not to split your frenulum, like I did whilst dancing!!

A crucial edit, of one of the very best latin tracks of all time. My mam was powerless to resist its boogaloo charms, and ended up shaking her big decorative maracas in such a way that I had never seen before!!

Two slabs of red hot FONK, that will have you sashaying around the living room so enthusiastically, that is until your mam comes home from her church, and you are forced to frantically pump your boogie brakes!!
posted a comment on Moby - Reprise. 3 months ago
My mam, who ranks Moby's "Play" lp amongst her top ten albums of all times, really cannot get into this album. And in fact, as she is repeatedly saying to me, the grey vinyl is emblematic of the contents of the album - that is, the music is quite... See full review

These lovely, easier listening versions, of Alan Green's best "hits" are just so right and perfect for my mam, who likes to put this record on, when she is needing to clam down, after another big argument with the lady next door, whom she hates so much!!

Another classic, sureshot, from the mysterious artist known as "Soopasoul". This is a man, who can even make my mam prance and boogie (although, I do have to only ever play her the "instrumental" sides of his rap edits, as often there is profanity and... See full review

Just such wickedly immense and atmospheric beats, from the ever-dependable Alchemist. My only slight gripe, is that it is so short. I find that me and my lovely girlfriend will just be getting into a rhythm, when the music ends. Then I have to... See full review

There is a reason why that this 45 is so in demand - and this is, because it is a funk-laden mega stonker of the most devastatingly epic proportions!! Plus it also has such a bright and colourful front cover, that never fails to cheer me up whenever I... See full review

A true return to form, by the world's finest metal band - Metallica. The drumming (by Lars Ulrich) on the titular track, is worth the price of the record alone. In fact, it had me headbanging at such a forceful and frantic pace, that I had to be taken... See full review
posted a review of David Bowie & Morrissey - Cosmic Dancer. 7 months ago
I have to agree with ELMOFUDGE, that this should never have seen the light of day. As not only does it sound completely appalling, it is also known that the thin white duke was no fan, of portly white supremacists, like Morrissey!!

A superlative pressing, that is most definitely worth the price you will pay. But please be advised, that you should keep the jacket away from your mam's nice cream carpets. This is because it sheds tiny particles of red velvet, and when your mam sees... See full review

Ricky Gervais's brother, Cedric Gervais, has really done such a fantastic job making this remix sound, so good. I can imagine, when wedding parties are allowed again, that this will assuredly have all the MILFs waving their hands in the air, in unison!!

A lovely release from Kid Cudi and Slimothy Shady, that will delight so many with its orchestral production by Dot da Genius, and the type of clever and inventive wordplay that would most certainly put, Joyce Carol Oates to shame!!

The "blood red" vinyl is a nice touch, but I must concur with my fellow Discographers in the comments below, that the sleeve is just so annoyingly flimsy! However, I have come up with a way to fix, this problem. It is very simple, but you will need a... See full review
