(random review)
Best acid jazz compilation out there; not one word of vocals on the entire album, this is a pure electronic/jazz hybrid. If you're like the song Cooper's World by Squarepusher and you want an album with the same vibe for every track you wont be dissapointed. "Serious Intent" and "Blakey" are highlights on this cd.

(review from
A twelve track slab of all things good available from this label from some new as well as existing artists, with a little more flavour added by notable remixers Beaumont Hannant, Monkey Mafia and Andrew Weatherall. New band Soil are very different with electro beats and bass tuned to beguile the listener. If this is a typical sample of their output, then a future album should be a totally electrifying experience. The Big Eye have successfully remodelled Beelzedub into a pseudo reggae/jungle outing of distinction. I also found the track by Pilote Burste scintillating as they have combined succulent themes and bass rhythms that few could play due to the varying beat. TLM are usually guaranteed to fill the speakers with delightful sounds and it should come as no surprise to find their beaten and broken Electrastar does exactly what is promised. The final track by Blue Frog finishes this truly excellent sampler in great style where the reviewer is left wishing for more. Overall the mix is certainly in the modern theme where the changes in instrumental music allows plenty of diversity to shake those bones.

V/A - Gomma Audio No. 1
Label - Shadow
Released - 2001
Style - Electronic, Leftfield, House, Abstract, Downtempo, Lee Library

Notes: compilation of tracks from the Gomma Label 1999-2001

(review from
Some really big names are really digging what Germany's Gomma label is doing. Gilles Peterson, Jazzanova, Kruder & Dorfmeister, and Les Rhythmes Digitales have raised their swords among the legion of the label's fans. In what can be considered a mixed blessing, Shadow has released some of Gomma's 1999-2001 tracks.

Gomma Audio No. 1 is most definitely an aural, dance adventure. This is music that isn't afraid to take risks, and the label distinguishes itself admirably for refusing the cliché. In the cluttered minefield of electronica's myriad genres, the music on this disc oftentimes defies categorization. However, in that stew of creativity, sometimes one comes up with gristle. Sometimes the synth effects are too '80s, like in Headman's "It's Rough," or too overbearing, which almost ruins the deep house groove of Leroy Hanghofer's "Pin." And Ike Yard's "N.C.R." is so choppy, you'd think the track had been ravaged by a Benihana chef.

The rest, however, is a spicy jambalaya of fine, edgy music that makes one realize why such big names as those previously mentioned are into Gomma. Munk has two great tracks on here; Ike Steigner's "Bela Breaks" is a heartbeat away from cardiac arrest; and Spenzer's "The Box" closes out this session with some menacing downtempo that leaves you wanting more.

1 Headman - It Rough (5:48)
2 Ike Yard - N.C.R. (Funkstörung Version) (4:59)
3 Protein - Aspik (4:18)
4 Munk - Stick Mi Amor (6:21)
5 Leroy Hanghofer - Pin (Les Rhythmes Digitales & Sloop John Baillo Rmx) (6:21)
6 Low Daddies - Pomade (8:13)
7 Protein - Yes Törti (4:01)
8 Munk - Haudig (3:55)
9 Palermo King - Murtu (4:32)
10 Headman - Rocket (4:02)
11 Ilk Steigner - Bela Breaks (7:17)
12 Spenzer - The Box (5:03)

Bomb Squad Instrumentals/B-sides - DC special!

It's too bad the rest of our FM radio in the DC area blows. One dude named Bobby Hill has been doing these sick 3-hour Bomb Squad tribute shows every Christmas Eve for many years. It's a show called "The Other Side" and my brother & I caught it for the first time around 1990 on WPFW 89.3fm, a jazz station here in DC. That first show I heard blew me away - and although I'd been into PE before that, it was the show that sparked my obsession with Bomb Squad production on a musical level. Their shit is crazy.

So even with all the other parts of the world with dope pirate FMs or just cool regular FM stations, I don't think anywhere else boasts an all-Bomb Squad instrumental radio special! Bobby Hill is a great dude for putting such a crazy concept in action, and keeping it in action for so many years. Thanks, dude.

Here is this past years' special - I had correspondence with Bobby via email before the show even aired, and he pulled out some great stuff for 2006/2007! If you are a lover of dope beats or any shade of PE enthusiast, you will love this shit. If you're not, you should still love it if you're even on my page to begin with. I stayed home like a LOSER to record the show this past New Years Eve :\ But I'm glad I did

“BRING THE NOISE: 18th Annual Public Enemy/Bomb Squad Instrumentals Special

Public Enemy originally grew out of the friendship of James ‘Hank’ Boxley (aka Bomb Squad producer Hank Shocklee) and Richard Griffin (aka Minister of Information Professor Griff), who were Long Island teenage friends. The two formed the Spectrum City Sound System, and were joined by area MC Carlton Riddenhour (aka Chuck D.) and his friends Willie Drayton (aka Flavor Flav) and DJ Norman Rogers (aka Terminator X). In the early 80’s, the Spectrum City Sound System hosted the Super Spectrum Mix Show on NY’s Adelphi University’s campus radio station. A 1984 live broadcast, then titled ‘I’m Your Public Enemy #1’, eventually became Spectrum’s new name and their first single, re-titled ‘Public Enemy #1’. During the hip hop explosion of the mid-80’s, Public Enemy signed with Rick Rubin’s Def Jam label, which in 1987 released their debut recording entitled ‘Yo! Bum Rush the Show’. With the release of their next two recordings, 1988’s “It Takes A Nation of Millions To Hold Us Back’ and 1990’s “Fear of A Black a Planet’, PE succeeded in redefining the hip hop sound by elevating sampling – the melding of snippets of pre-recorded sound and music – into a new art form, creating a music that was uniquely arresting in both it’s originality and conviction...sonic collages of urban beats and sociopolitical ideas. Bomb Squad Production Members: Hank and Keith Shocklee, Eric ‘Vietnam’ Sadler, Carl Ryder, Bill Stephney, Gary ‘G’ Wiz, Cerwin ‘C-Dawg’ Depper, Stewart Robertz, and JBL.

(from AMG)
This sampler nicely explicates Shadow records' penchant for... More downbeat instrumentals with some minimalist trip-hop from DJ Cam, Shantel, Da Germ, Sharpshooters, and others. The beats are fat and blunt, with production that's riddled with wry samples and cut-up soundscapes. Fans of alternative hip-hop crews like the Quannum collective will be sure to find something of an electronica-centric analog among these 14 tracks. The mix ranges from the experimentalism of Parisian DJ Cam and Frankfurt-native Shantel, to the poetry-and-beats blend of Sharpshooters and Caribbean funk flavors from Obo and Otropic T(h)ree. In between, there's the dark minimalism of Da Germ and club soul smoothness of Differenz. Boasting an international roster gleaned from the U.S., Cuba, and Europe, Shadow records delivers the underground sounds of hip-hop production from an expansive perspective. Beat freaks with more than just a taste for hard breaks will no doubt enjoy this dusky sampler. ~ Stephen Cook, All Music Guide

Kosma, a.k.a. Roskow Kretschmann is one of the six Jazzanova members. His musical foundation goes back to the year 1987 when he began to build a name for himself as a Hip Hop producer in the Berlin underground scene. With the album "Rock da Most" he had immortalized the first German Hip Hop releases on vinyl. In addition he was a collaborator at the Berlin Hip Hop label Juicefull Records. 1991 saw his departure from the label job as well as from the production of Hip Hop tracks.

Kosma has been a Jazzanova member since the beginning in 1995, when Jazzanova was founded as a DJ team, transforming into poduction in 1996, the same year Kosma released his first solo album "Universal“.

With the opening of the borders to Eastern Europe his interest in the Eastern European jazz scene increased, which clearly had an influence on his work. An additional influence by that time came from his love for the American label CTI and Bob James, to whom he dedicated "Atlantis" from his debut album "Universal".

Keb Darge's Legendary Deep Funk

Keb Darge's Legendary Deep Funk
Label - BBE
Released - 1997
Style - Funk, Soul, Breaks, Lee Library

(from wiki)
Deep Funk is a underground genre of funk music which, unlike traditional mainstream funk, has a more soulful, rawer, grittier, and "heavier" sound. The term "deep funk" is also the name of the scene of collectors, DJ's, and musicians who are into deep funk as a genre.

It got its name after Keb Darge's "Legendary Deep Funk" DJ night, held at Madame Jojo's nightclub in London's Soho district.

The focus of the scene is collecting and DJing rare funk 45's, usually released originally by local funk groups & artists in the USA throughout the 1960s and 70s that usually stayed in their local home bases, only playing nearby clubs and other venues, and releasing their music on small local & regional record labels at the time in the form of 7" 45 rpm singles in quite small quantities (usually about 1000-5000 copies or less), hence their extreme rarity and high collectible value. Most of these records have quite high re-sale values due to their paucity, with some going for 4, and sometimes 5, figures.

Keb Darge, along with collaborating artists such as Pete Rock, RZA, and DJ Shadow, has released a series of so far three Deep Funk compilations called Funk Spectrum (Volumes I, II and III), released on BBE Records, and featuring classic releases of the genre, as well as modern-day deep funk/"new funk" groups such as The New Mastersounds, Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings, Connie Price & The Keystones, Quantic, and others.

(from posteverything)
After Nuggets - Luke Vibert's selection and Barry 7's Connectors comes music just as far out and even more damn funky.

Because You're Funky brings together 24 seriously fried instrumentals from the collection of the legendary Rustler - a veteran of 20 years on the underground soul scene - bordering on Psych, heavy on the breaks, make no mistake this is extreme music.

But don't think for a minute that Lo Recordings are going all retro on your ass. As we said before, sometimes you got to go back to go forwards.
This is the root of all that is funky from George Clinton to Prince, A Certain Ratio to 23 Skidoo, Derrick May to Timo Mass, Autechre to Aphex, Public Enemy to the Wu Tang clan. Without this shit no one would be feeling the funk.

Some of these tracks are so rare that even DJ Shadow doesn't have them and some are so far out that no one but The Rustler would play
them (!) and a couple of the tracks have been subject to four figure bids from the likes of Kenny "Dope" Gonzales an Ian "Praying Mantis" Wright.

All the cuts are from the late 60s, early 70s , that pre disco, no drum machine era when men were men, women were women and funk was most definitely funky.

It took Lo Recordings 2 years to persuade The Rustler to let these gems into the public domain. Let's hope the world is ready.

(from Stones Throw)
Stones Throw Records presents a glimpse into the lives and music of 16 unsung heroes of the late 60s and early 70s’ funk revolution from each corner of the United States. These are musicians that strove to achieve the success of The Meters and James Brown, musicians that played their instruments with a gut-wrenching power unheard in modern music, musicians that testified on wax and have resurfaced some thirty years after disappearing from the music scene. The intensity of their recordings has not lost one ounce of soul with the time passed. Now, finally, the meticulously researched The Funky 16 Corners stands as an historical document to this era in American music.

(re: Texas Funk / from Dusty Groove)
This is the kind of funk they've been hiding from you all these years -- the real deal, the heavy stuff, the type of work that's made driving around the country looking for rare 45s so worthwhile! This material's the kind that makes a trip like that happen -- super-rare funk from Texas, dug up by the Jazzman posse, and given the stamp of approval by DJ Shadow! The package is a perfect introduction to the lost heritage of Texas funky work -- as it not only includes 21 searing tracks of funk (some of the best we've heard compiled in a long time!), but it also features a breakdown of the different scenes in the state, and a full set of notes on each tune, complete with an image of the original 45! The whole thing's unbelievable -- as well researched as it is hard and funky, and a delight to the ears throughout. Titles include "Give Everybody Some" by Mickey & The Soul Generation, "Sissy Strut" by Joe Bravo, "Soul Pot" by The Soul Ones, "Every Man For Himself" by The Road Runners, "Super Funk" by Vern Blair Debate, "Soul Pride" by Little Joe & The Latinaires, "I Turn You On" by Latin Breed, "Funky Stuff" by Little Jr Jesse & His Teardrops & The Tears, "Funky Chick" by The Majestics, and "Do Your Thing (parts 1 & 2)" by Zapata.

Swinging music has invaded the public's consciousness - it's on the television, the wireless and being gyrated to in the most happening of discotheques. Groovy instrumental work-outs, some familiar, others down right weird, have been eagerly embraced by the all-new urban sophisticate. These musical masterpieces stem from but one source, The Sound Gallery Volume One - two albums that moved your feet, soothed your brow, and loosened your clothing - however the mood took you.

Volume Two's recordings range from the seductive - just listen to Laurie Johnson's champagne drenched "Tag", music from the Linda Thorson series of The Avengers; to the familiar -what's Valerie Singleton got to do with "The Good Word"?; to the insane - just listen to Lord Sitar (at the time rumoured to be one of the fab four) musically "enhance" the Who's "I Can See For Miles"; to the downright collectable - the first release on CD of George Martin's "Theme One" especially composed and recorded for the opening of BBC Radio One in 1967.

Style - Electronic, Psychedelic, Jazz, Abstract, Easy Listening, Soundtrack, Library

(from Dusty Groove)
One of the best Italian scores we've heard in ages! The soundtrack is one of the best-ever by the great Piero Piccioni -- and it's a swirling mix of organ riffs, soulful tenor, and throbbing basslines. Some tracks burst out with a heavy groovy sound, while others hang back in a pensive jazzy kind of way. As with the other Easy Tempo reissues, this one's got some incredible extra material -- for a total of 27 great tracks that we've already played again and again and again. Titles include "Kintabu", "Blackflower", "Colpo Rovente", "Easy Dreamer", "Chinatown Drugs", and "LSD".

Piero Umiliani - Il Corpo [Original Soundtrack]
Label - Easy Tempo
Released - 1974
Style - Electronic, Jazz, Fusion, Ambient, Easy Listening, Library, Soundtrack

(from Dusty Groove)
Sweetly funky and very slinky -- this is one of the best early 70s scores by the great Italian composer Piero Umiliani! The record has lots of bubbling electric piano, rumbling electric basslines, warm acoustic percussion, and moody wordless vocals. At some level, the album sounds a lot like the contemporaneous work by the great Italian Fender Rhodes combo Crossfire -- but it's also filled with a spacey madness that could only come from the pen of Umiliani! One of the best of the recent Easy Tempo reissues -- and very nicely put together, with a consistent sound throughout!

Piero Umiliani - La Ragazza Fuori Strada

Piero Umiliani - La Ragazza Fuori Strada
Label - Easy Tempo
Released - 1975
Style - Funk, Jazz, Easy Listening, Soundtrack, Library, OST

(from scorebaby)
The '75 release La Ragazza Fuori Strada (or "The Girl from the Street") starred Zeudi Araya, who also starred in Il Corpo and La Ragazza Dalla Pelle Di Luna for which Umiliani also contributed scores reissued by Easy Tempo. Zeudi is an exotic goddess to be sure, but what of the score? As expected, Umiliani's music is a thing of groovy beauty. He often uses an orchestra augmented by a crack rhythm section, but just as often goes solo on the organ or piano, or sticks with a small combo.

Check out the crisp cymbal work, bubbling bass line and jazzy brass on "Nostalgia" -- all backed by organ and strings. Or how about that bouncing funkadelic of "Senza Tregua" with its stabbing organ lines and jangly rhythm guitar. There are 24 tracks in total, with some repetition of theme.

(from musicfromthemovies)
Fuori Strada already bears a strong influence from Isaac Hayes' 1971 breakthrough score for Shaft, evidenced in Umiliani's flawless fusion of a sizable string section, strong melodic lines, and several rhythmically charged synth tracks. It's all vintage 1970s groove music, something fans of the genre will love in Easy Tempo's expanded reissue of the original soundtrack album.

Piero Umiliani - Questo Sporco Mondo Meraviglioso
Label - Easy Tempo
Released - 1971
Style - Funk, Jazz, Soundtrack, Library, OST

(from Dusty Groove)
A fab little soundtrack from one of our favorite Italian composers -- a lost gem originally issued in 1971, with a very groovy sound! The score has Piero Umiliani picking up a bit more funk than usual -- working with electric bass and keyboards to come up with some totally great tracks that kind of pick up a sexy Euro funk groove from the Serge Gainsbourg generation, and give it some excellent soundtracky touches in terms of tone, color, and melody. The tracks are all pretty darn great -- bouncy, sunny, and with funk at just the right moments -- and a few nice numbers even have a bit of scatting vocals, an element that makes them all the more pleasing to our ears! Titles include "Mah Na Cowboy", "Holiday Inn", "Love In", "Il Mondo Dell Infanzia", "Luna Di Miele", "Pepito", and "La Nuova Frontiera".

01. questo mondo meraviglioso (archi e cori)

Label - Dare-Dare/Pulp Flavor
Recorded - 60s/70s
Style - Soul, Pop, Jazz, Afro, Latin, Library, OST

(from moviegrooves)
Impressions: Volume 1 is a fantastic selection of multi-instrumentalist Janko Nilovic's output for the Montparnasse 2000, Télémusic and Selection music libraries during the 60s and 70s which first appeared on LPs such as Psy Impressions, Pop Impressions, Soul Impressions and Vocal Impressions - all now very much in demand by collectors and library music lovers!

Born on May 20th, 1941, in Montenegro, Janko Nilovic began his formal musical training at the age of five. Although an heir to the Slavic and Balkan tradition, he never set aside the more modern styles of jazz, soul and pop, an open-mindedness which also led him to try his luck in Paris in 1960 (where he still lives). Working ten hours a day with a never-faltering persistance, Janko swiftly joined the professional circles, adding up sessions, joys and disappointments.

Nilovic produced more than thirty albums for record companies that specialised in Library Music.

Both Impressions Volume 1 and Volume 2 prove how broad Janko's field of activity can be, how developed was his capacity to digest and to merge his multiple influences and create this timeless language.

Discs 1 & 2
Label - Irma / La Douce
Recorded - 60s/70s
Style - Lounge, Jazz, Funk, Easy Listening, Music Library, Lee Library, OST

(from scorebaby):
This double disc collects the jazz funk of Euro-club cult fave De Wolfe, whose contribution to the soundtrack sub-genre of "library music" is of unusually high quality. The tracks are sophisticated. The performances are slick. At times, one gets the impression that the musicians who play on these sessions would have satisfied the most demanding band leaders. Sometimes the sound borders on progressive fusion, other times disco funk, and other times it almost sounds like Steely Dan, minus the singing, of course. Knowing its audience, Irma La Douche has provided brief descriptions for each of the 32 tracks. "New Project" is described as "beaty, important". "Harlem Globetrotters" is simply "medium tempo, percussion prominent". Although few of the tracks evoke anything particularily cinematic, all of it is way groovy.

Peter Thomas - Moonflowers & Mini-Skirts

Peter Thomas - Moonflowers & Mini-Skirts
Label - Marina (Germany)
Released - Late 60s/Early 70s/1998
Style - Jazz/Lounge/Rock/Funk/Easy Listening/OST/Library

(from Dusty Groove)
Wonderful stuff! As you've probably noticed in our soundtrack section, we loooove Peter Thomas, the groovy German composer/bandleader who gave the world the cool soundtracks to Space Patrol (Raumpatrouille) and the Jerry Cotton films. Now the same folks who put together the cool Motor Music compilations have done this one of Thomas' other work from the late 60s and early 70s, and it's a real doozy! The sound's a mix of space age crime, groovy bossa tunes, cool now sound gems, and wild soundtrack-y material. Titles include "Uhr 20", "Opium", "Multi-Kolored Mini-Skirts", "Rockin' Computer", "Milky Way", "Meeting Polermo", "Flash Point", "Moonflower Q 70" and "Black Power", which has vocals by a very young Donna Summer! The sound is amazing, and the CD's a real treat to any fan of groovy Euro stuff from the late 60s! New version -- with better packaging, and 2 bonus cuts: "Punjab Poppy Juice (Maxwell Implosion rmx)" and "Bonus Beats".

Easy Tempo compilation series

A quick review on the Easy Tempo vols 1-10 series in general, from scorebaby:

The Easy Tempo series constitutes the most exhaustive collection of Italian cinematic jazz funk available. To try and rate each volume seperately becomes a highly subjective exercise, since each volume tends to feature the same music makers — like Piero Umiliani, Armando Trovajoli, Piero Piccioni, Berto Pisano, et al. Although a couple of volumes attempt to offer a sub-category approach — like Volume 2's focus on psychadelic sounds ("psycho beat") and Volume 3's focus on Latin rhythms — most of the discs are very consistant in sound style. Therefore, it's best to take the series as a whole, because each disc has its standout tracks, but never a genuine stinker. A lot of credit goes to the people at Easy Tempo — part of the jazz label Right Tempo — for having great ears. I can't emphasize enough how essential these discs are to groovy soundtrack fans. Take the plunge.
