Somehow both wonderfully bizarre ..  while oozing  a deadly sex appeal.. like the  haunting forefathers of Portishead... with a touch of Lee Scratch Perry.

Syunsuke Ono - Soul Glo (Nile Rogers cover)



The details are scarce ..  we know he is a one-man-funk band from Japan armed with an array of vocoders, drum machines, synths ..  and an unending love for classic 70s/80s soul and funk.

# apparently Nile Rogers' favourite of his own compositions
# will they ever make Coming To America 2??

Saada Bonaire - More Women

Taken from 'Covers' album - 1982 - reissued on Captured Tracks

Saada Bonaire 1 - cropped.jpg

Could've/Should've been massive. Think of an ice-cool cocktail mixing INXS, Thomson Twins..  even a touch of Fela Kuti.
Legend has it, this fell of EMI's release roster due to over expenditure on Tina Turner's 'Private Dancer' album - a crying shame.

Tore - She's A Lady

Originally released on Mercury records - 1979

Tore-ShesALady-resiz1 - with border.jpg

No .. not a Tom Jones cover but beaming flamenco disco vibes from Norway.

Unearthed and brought into the light by the legendary Dj Harvey.

Bobby Powell - Question

Taken from 'Into My Own Thing' compilation on WestSide records - 1971


There is soul and there is SOUL. This is SOUL.

And check out the Four Tet club edit here.

Derrick Laro & Trinity - Don't Stop 'Till You Get Enough

Taken from Hustle! compilation on Soul Jazz records (orig. rec 1980) 


If the King of Pop was from Kingston..

Killer dance-floor reggae cover of a seminal disco anthem.

Willie Dale - Let Your Light Shine

Re-issued on Athens In The North records


The kind of record that leaves rare vinyl collectors uncontrollably salivating.. 

No information out there on who exactly Willie Dale is. No picture can be found. Just this extraordinary slice of funk, soul, psyche and garage rolled into one dazzling epic. 

Nahid Akhtar - Naughty Boy

Re-issued on Finders Keepers records


Coquettish, teasing and a little zany..  irresistible really..

File under: fuzzy, scuzzy, funked up Urdu grooves.
