Profile

I am a London Based DJ who still loves to buy Vinyl, especially Vinyl i missed out on first time around. A personal note to all sellers out there. If i purchase an item i fully expect it to arrive a week later unless you tell me otherwise, I think 7 days is long enough!!

One of their finest Remixes. Go to a club, hear this on a proper sounder system and you'll never be the same again.
Midnight Star - Planetary Invasion
posted a review of Midnight Star - Planetary Invasion. 10 months ago
typically mid 80's in sound and if you are a fan of the mid 80's prince era then this Album is for you. One exception is Curious which was a huge hit on the underground soul circuit in London.

I don't get it, how is this LP so revered? Seeekret that came out a year late in 85 is a much better LP both produced by Deodato.

proper 80's electronica. if you like the early 80's motown sound then this is a really good example. Let It Whip and Keep it Live are absolutely slamming.

Wow what a tune, i think prices will go up on this gem once people realise that it's been recently sampled by Natasha Kitty Kat and others. Absolutely essential.

widely regarded as one of Kenny & Louie's more sought after remixes from that golden era. There is also a 10" pressing that was officially released back then that's worth a look. Absolutely Slamming!!!
Masters At Work - Blood Vibes

A classic masters at work production, house and hip hop on 1 Album. Not sure if this was ever done before? DJ Mark the 45 king did something similar on Tuff City but that was after..

An excellent introduction to what we now all know as Elements Of Life, this song pays a massive tribute to George Duke's Brazilian Love Affair. Absolutely Fantastic.

Had this on tape for almost 30 years and had no clue what it was, all i remember was that i recorded it from a UK pirate radio station at the time. I knew it was or it sounded like a british jazz-funk record but that was it. Unbelievably i found this... See full review

Absolutely fantastic album that's probably benefitted from being at least 2 years late. Every track a winner and i urge not just Louie fans but fans everywhere that love good quality soulful house music to get their hands on this. Essential!!

posted a review of Tramaine - Fall Down (Spirit Of Love). over 3 years ago
when this first came out i remember it was a big club track especially in London but it was purely for the Soul Headz, only in later years has it become more and more popular. I think it's still a massive club track and deserves a listen.
Masters At Work - Mattel
posted a review of Masters At Work - Mattel. over 3 years ago
Not what your classic MAW Fans would have wanted as a comeback after 20 odd years however, making electronic music and exposing themselves to a younger audience is nothing new to Kenny & Louie, that said, this is a new era and we have all been warned,... See full review
Roy Ayers - Feeling Good

The irony is that he left IMO his best album for Polydor until the end, I just don't understand why later albums go for silly money, when this Album is far better than the Uno Melodic albums.
Larry Joseph - Platinum Funk Vol.1
posted a review of Larry Joseph - Platinum Funk Vol.1. over 3 years ago
Bought this first time out in London and it was limited then, strange EP really, it's not funk, it's not soul but it's something in between. Typical of what was going on in the mid 80's soul/boogie scene.

An excellent release for all Vega & EOL fans. Ponce is essentially the dub that Louie did with his uncle Hector Lavoe on a previous release Mi Gente.

Funny you should say that, this was sold to me back in the 90's as a MAW unreleased mixes. I always thought it sounded like a smack production but back then we didn't have the resources we have now.

The owner of Sam Records always get's it right with these re-issues. An excellent addition to anyone's collection.
If only he would introduce the original Sam Records sleeves, it would make them even more desirable!!

Recently purchased this reissue/bootleg from a well known second hand shop in London, my only gripe is that the A side is only 3:28 long which suggests it's a lift off the original 7" single. What's the point of going to all this trouble if you can't... See full review
