Slave Masters (Jacques Renault Remix)

I love the dubby, hypnotic treatment Jacques gave this Seun Kuti track.

Before You

Talk about a sick 45rpm! I bought this record from one of my favorite dealers in PA, this guy even does house calls! The story behind this record is pretty sweet, the group, "Custer's Last Band" is originally from Lancaster, PA, and had a huge local following back in the early 70s. The 10 piece band wrote two of their own tunes that charted on Lancaster's WLAN Radio. Custer's Last Band featured 3 lead singers with horns and a classic Hammond B-3 organ. This 45 is very rare and hellafunky, definitely a keeper. Enjoy!

Get Up

Here's a quality (nu) groove from Underground Kids, which is an alias for Total Science. A while back our pals over at Polizei Motion posted Total Science's mega jam, "Just A Little Bit." I'll repost that for your listening pleasure too.

Have Yourself A Good Time

Major Lance is known more for his doo-woppy "Northern Soul" stylings (and having most of his material written by Curtis Mayfield), but this 70s joint is more of a feel good funky disco groover.

P.S. I hate the term Northern Soul.

Free Download of RCMP - Love The Music (Fifteenth Remix)

I have a freebie for you from last month's big big RCMP II: The Remixes release.

As many folks are aware, Fifteenth is the dynamite collab between LA's party starter Mike B and long-time Philadelphyinz affiliate Sammy Bananas. Basically it's a dream team, and they make some of the best sample-derived house out there right now, so we were thrilled to have them work on our tune!

Many thanks to the Fools Gold blog for giving the exclusive DL last week.
