Cream Of The Crop - August 2014 Vinyl Chart
Some crackers in this month's chart. Lovers of decent house, afrobeat, [nu]disco, techno, funk, boogie, jazz and beats dig in!
Top of the chart goes to the beautiful string laiden new gem from Midland. Check the Spiritual South 12" on Basic Fingers for a solid version of Halloween's Come See What It's All About. Stamp Records number 3 delivers a heavyweight version of Fela from Lodger that went down a storm at this year's Beat-Herder Festival.
The Motown Divas double pack from John Morales features Tata Vega's awesome Get It Up For Your Love - as played by John on his recent Boiler Room set. For tripped out nu disco check out the Chamboche In A Headlock remix of 'Tetra' by Ejeca on Tusk Wax Gold.
Check Street Edits Vol 3 for Mr Mendel's take on that James Brown classic. The EP also features the lush disco groover that is Spirit The Power which was featured in his recent mix for Dig Deep.
Vermelho's 'Trouble in the Streets' on the Brazilian Shakedown EP is an essential grower for the slo-mo crowd - proper low down chugging house music.
Detroit diehards head straight for the reissue of KMFJ aka Kyle Hall's Down EP. Our Love and Down are my picks. Whilst Jay Daniel's uberdeep mix of Fourtet's Arial is a must for Theo Parrish fans.
Lumberjacks Boogie Volume 1 features 4 tracks from Rayko, ManMadeMusic, Mr Mendel and Em Vee - it's the latter's 'What A Women Needs' that is killing me. And that's just the top 10!
