LP | Makossa | m2337lp | € 16.00

Re-press of rare, interesting disco/funk LP from Ghanaian Sidiku Buari. The LP was recorded in the USA, and is from 1979, but sounds more like it’s from 1977. It’s a mix of disco and funk, at times the backing sounds reminiscent of the Crown Heights Affair. [disco]

Hadamard – Studio Gangster

12″ | Mighty Robot Recordings | mr0000013 | € 8.99

The sound of old school hip-hop, grinding funk, tweaked out electro and static acid seeps under the door of the Studio Gangster. Inside, Hadamard sits with his headphones on, in a world that’s more Dirty and Brown than diamond bling. Excellent dutch electro in dirty brown tradition.

Lindstrom & Christabelle – Real Life Is No Cool

LP | Smalltown Supersound | sts159lp | € 19.00

Lindstrom’s latest album is his most coherent one yet. Less of the improvised doodling (which we like) and more of a poppy approach. From the Michael Jackson influenced disco stomper ‘Baby Can’t Stop’ to the downtempo brilliance of ‘Lovesick’ and everything in between. It’s all good. [balearic-disco-pop]

Bileebob – Call Me

12″ | Underground Resistance | ur081 | € 11.75

Pure Electro harking back to the days of Direct beat and it’s fathers Aux 88. Tip.
