Pittsburgh Track Authority return with a new single-sided limited edition edits record on the imprint that bears only their own logo.
"I Always Wanted To Be In A Band" kicks things off in an early 70s soul jazz style, with infectious vocals and catchy horns doing the damage. Next, a flute driven cover of the dance classic "Lowdown" keeps the disco-funk vibes of the original but with added springtime/summer vibes. Both of these have done damage for PTA at their gigs, and now they can do damage for you at yours.
Over 3 decades after 'Rhythm Of Life', Mason rediscovered tapes w/more recordings from same late 70s period. 'The Dance Of Life' (Bernard Purdie - drums / Fonda Rae - backing vocals) & 'Up Jump' are 1st 2 tracks from 'Recollection Echo' LP.
Their first single in 23 years. The song is based on an old Chic demo called "Love Somebody Today", which features all of the original members of the band. Also f/ "Back In The Old School" + instrumentals of both.
Compilation curated by Parisian crate digger Vidal Benjamin. Tracks by Laurie Destal, New Paradise, Stephane, Club Prive, Pilooski's edit of Patrice Mondon, Marie Chaptal, Nicolas Skorsky, Ark, Marc Chantereau, Christopher Laurent & more.
Two of the most iconic hip hop breakbeats to come from the legendary New York label, Salsoul Records, on one newly remastered 7-inch single. Instant Funk's "The Funk Is On," produced by Randy Muller (Brass Construction, Skyy, etc.), is not only a tough disco tune but contains one of the great old school b-boy breaks halfway through. The floor-filling classic is presented here in the full-length album version for the first time on 7-inch. Also making its debut on 7-inch is Gaz's "Sing Sing" break, a bubbly midtempo groove that has been much sampled in recent years by everyone from Wu Tang Clan to Kylie Minogue. The full break has never been available on 7-inch and is making its debut here in a DJ-friendly edit by The Undercover Brother.
Cherries takes you far into Arizona deserts w/deep sultry sounds of live disco/funk band. 2 4-on-the-floor jams. (A) bassline driven night groove, w/gospel style harmonies of Mama Kat over magical guitar licks of Jomeo. (B) uptempo strutter.
