Cannon & Mirrorball Black Rhythm Rap Cannon & Mirrorball may not be the disco edit scene's answer to moustache-sporting 1970s/80s comedy heroes Cannon and Ball, but they certainly serve up tracks that will put a big goofy smile on your face. Their latest Disco Bits adventure begins via "Black Rhythm Rap", a chunky, hip-hop friendly rework of an obscure, late 1970s disco-rap bomb rich in funky guitar licks, cut-glass strings and party-starting MC flows. On the flip they get even cheekier, placing Loleatta Holloway's incredible "Love Sensation" vocal over a stomping, Blaxploitation-era disco-funk backing track and all manner of familiar soul and funk samples. Purists will no doubt sneer, but they really shouldn't: this is tastefully produced disco heat of the highest order. Disco Bits 7"
Etta James / Sugar Pie DeSanto In the Basement (Soul Flip Edit) On their latest limited edition salvo, the hardworking Soul Flip crew (AKA experienced DJs and producers Aldo Vanucci and Del Gazeebo) gets to work on two more stomping dancefloor cuts from the golden age of soul. First up on side A is a gently tooled-up and tightened up take on Etta James and Sugar Pie DeSanto's 1966 floor-heater "In The Basement", a hybrid soul-jazz/rhythm and blues jam rich in rubbery double bass, bustling drums, restless handclaps and brilliant lead vocals from the two legendary soul singers. On the flip they tackle Memphis musician John Gary Williams' 1972 cover of George Harrison's "My Sweet Lord", which brilliantly re-imagines the former Beatles' spiritual song as a sweaty gospel-soul stomper.

SoulBrigada Resense 046 SoulBrigada is back with a new joint, serving two edits of classic funk & soul tunes on a tasty funky 45. Two essential killer cuts not to be missed! The soul hit "Do Your Thang" on the A-side was released by a vocal duo from Florida in the mid seventies. The edit extends the original to the right length and new ryhtmus and percussion tracks give the song the missing power. "Grab Your Thang" on the flipside, is a 1965 killer funk tune from Memphis, which will make every dance floor burn with mad breakbeat, new arrangement and additional samples. Agogo Records 7"

Featurecast One Step / Aint Got Time (feat. The Gaff) Next up on Friday’s Funky 45 we showcase 2 of Featurecast’s most popular edits. Side A is his incredible reworking of Aretha's “One Step Ahead” which first appeared on a 45 ten years ago on Wah Wah’s Dubplate series and doesn’t come cheap on Discogs. On the flipside is a collaboration between Lee and Mike The Gaff, “Ain’t Got Time” which again appeared on a 45 back in 2016 but again will cost you £££ on Discogs – now you can bag both in demand tracks on a single 45 remastered for 2019 and sounding really LOUD!!

Daytoner Davids Doctor / Ooh Lalo The next episode in the ‘Fridays Funky 45’ series features another pair of Daytoner ‘Shedits’ for vinyl DJs. As the title of the A-side hints, 2 classic samples from David McCallum (famously flipped by Doctor Dre) and Clyde Stubblefield have been combined to create a new twist on a hip-hop staple. If you’ve seen the Daytoner live show, you’ll have seen them open with some of these samples, embellished with live vocals, brass and FX. On the flip, ‘Ooh Lalo’ is another instrumental twist for DJ’s and this time, the samples wisely used in a big-beat classic have been re-edited to include more of Lalo Schifrin‘s amazing brass and piano instrumentation, underpinned once again with Apache drums to create a rousing big band beat for breakers. This Daytoner 45 follows on from 2 earlier releases, which sold out in all stores within days of release and these battle weapons have recently landed in the hands of superstar DJs such as DJ Jazzy Jeff, who played ‘Apache Street’ during his recent Vinyl 45 Destination Tour and Maseo from De La Soul was pictured with Daytoner’s ‘Rocksteady Shedits’ 45 last month. Limited edition – don’t sleep! Fridays Funky 45 7"
Summer Jamz Poppa In The Sheets / Funny High A little late for the summer season, no doubt, but trying to preserve that summer heat with two backyard BBQ classics. On one side, is a well edited and mixed version of the Isley’s Between The Sheets and Biggie’s Big Poppa. Flowing back and forth between the versions, this is dance floor gold. The flip is a original sample flip of Janet’s Funny How Time Flies and Camp Lo’s sampled LP title track Coolie High. A smoothed out gem. Summer Jamz 7" Pre-Order

Haynesy / Jabbathakut Haynesy Hip Hop Edits Daddy Sets Off is the perfect party starter. One of the Golden Era’s best-loved rappers gets things going with a typically laconic flow over tight drum breaks, frantic bass and guitars and some very tasteful cut and paste action. Who’s A Big Mouth is a brass driven nugget from one of Brooklyn’s finest rap groups that’s been given more a little more club friendly bounce from Haynesy and some serious scratching skills from Jabbathakut. One that might easily be dedicated to everyone’s least favourite U.S. President! An essential slab of hip hop heat courtesy of your favourite Dubplate provider! 7"
Soul By The Pound Funky Dopeman / I Chose You (Jim Sharp Edits) Back again with a pair of edits in the lower BPM spectrum, Jim Sharp takes us on a regional tour of the South. Side A, breaks down then reassembles an early West Coast gangsta hit, Dopeman. Using the OG drums and extending the breaks, this will rock dance floors and bass bins alike. The B side, takes us to the Dirty South with 808 kicks, sprinkler Hi-Hats and sweet Soul music. I Chose You Could be dropped at a bounce party or a wedding.
