Paradise for All

Every now and then an album comes along that pulls you further in with every spin. The 3rd LP from the Frenchman that goes by the moniker of Guts is one such record, released back in 2011. I have to say it passed me by back then, but it's a great LP full of originality and retro grooves, bossa-nova rubs up with Jazz, reggae, cosmic-funk, and soul with totally addictive results and the perfect soundtrack to your next beach holiday or summer road trip.

Following a debut album on Nightmare on Wax‘s Wax On label, le Bienheureux, Guts is now self-produced and releases his work through its own label, Pura Vida Records. Brand New Revolution is the track that hooks you in primarily but that's just the beginning as all the other tunes wade in with style and sophistication that you just can't deny.

Tune after tune, the cool slow lounge vibe of opener Laisser Lucie Faire, the dripping funk of Come Closer,  the brilliant crazy ping-pong bounce of Brand New Revolution, the madcap lyrics of What Is Love?, Reggae-funk stomp Freedom, the Balearic flutes of Little Black Cat, daft-hip-hop Back to the New School, Spaghetti-beats of Aimer Sans Amour, crazy soundtrack narration on Libre Je Suis Devenu. A joy from start to finish, bring on the long hot summer! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

Do you remember when you used to cum for more

Epic track taken from Moodymann's latest LP the extensive 27 track album out in January this year. Lyk U Use 2 (feat. Andres) is one of those tracks that just effortlessly transcend you into a head-nodding appreciation. This would fit into any left-field set a pumping RnB groover with a future-retro vibe with a message of rejection.

You don't even scream for me no more!

Psychotic Love

Bass heavy laden EP Psychotic Love from Blue Daisy is an incredible set of tunes. From the opening title track, an industrial gothic trance from the dark corners of nowhere, to Cries of the Beast, a kind of fucked-up melting pot of middle-eastern snake-charmers buzz to raved-up sonics and scary vocals. Devils Pie adds light with a female vocal over a doomed sound of heavy synths, the EP closes with this track, an R'n'B workout played through a fruit-machine and a soulful vocal from Barnaby

Cop this, pop this, down with the shit

The stand-out track from ScHoolboy Q's third studio LP Oxymoron recruits his Black Hippy cohort the unstoppable Kendrick Lamar for Collard Greens. This shit is off the hook, the clattering beats and chopping rhymes from Kendrick to Q is absolutely stunning. Released as a single last year as an intro to Oxymoron which came out last month.

Oxymoron (Deluxe Version) is on iTunes Now.

Just an Illusion?

This has a nice summery disco vibe about it, Wine Glass Woman, a track from Hayer Hawthorne's Where Does This Door Go LP from last year. When this materialised around October last year the summer was well and truly over, so i've dusted it down for this summer. Aeroplane’s Vito De Luca's remix transforms the song into epic disco with the help of Imagination's 19982 disco classic Just an Illusion, taking the synthesised riffs and looping them through the track.

Cool mix for a hot dance floor!

This track has been getting a lot of airing lately, Connan Mockasin's Caramel LP was a sleeper hit from last year, released in November. I'm the Man, That Will Find You seems to be popping up more and more on various compilation albums. Mockasin's trembling pitch-shifting voice is one of those vocal performances that you either get or you don't. But he's completely unique and the musical structure behind the wobbly weirdo is nothing short of genius. The sophomore LP Caramel, recorded in a Tokyo hotel room is hit and miss but worth checking out for the moments of magic from the New Zealander.

The Doll That Says No

I picked up this French compilation LP recently called La Musique du Faubourg and there are some superb old french pop numbers on it, compiled by Malik Aiary it concludes with this 1980 version of La Poupée qui fait non by Cristina.

La Poupée qui fait non (English: "The Doll That Says No") is a 1966 song written by Franck Gérald (lyrics) and French singer/songwriter Michel Polnareff the music. It was recorded by Polnareff, becoming an immediate success in France and one of Polnareff most definitive songs. Jimmy Page (Led Zeppelin/Yardbirds) played guitar on the recording. Later, the english version was a hit for the Byrds and Saint Etienne covered it on the 1999 album A Tribute to Polnareff.

I've since discovered there are loads of cover versions of this song, many in french but also loads in English, German, Italian and Spanish. Cristina Monet-Palaci's 1980 version here adds a funky baseline and cowbells to disco up the track, which is also sampled by Dimitri From Paris' La Rythme Et Le Cadence track from his Sacrebleu LP.
