  • new mastersounds

    just recieved a promo copy of the new "new mastersounds" album. it's really a tasty album in my opinion. of course i know that the lp is out for a while but sometimes the uk stuff need a bit time to find the way behind the mountains. they are not really famous over here but i presume they are in the uk, or not? i'm really wondering how's the reaction for such new funk music in the uk? especially from the press (not the obvious one's, i mean the average music magazines). do they any articles/interviews etc? i'm just asking because bands like nms get normally no attention from the media over here. how's that in the uk?
    can you explain to me what this word means?

    It's starting to gain ground, but barring events at the Jazz Cafe, it's largely underground. I'm hoping my album, "Hot, Funky & Sweaty" will help turn that around. It's essentially the first introduction to the overall 'new funk' scene, and should go a ways to opening it up to new ears.

    The Zambezi track from the NMS LP is on there. Here's the tracklisting:

    01. The Organites - Hot, Funky & Sweaty
    02. The Neapolitans (feat The Essentials) - Crosstown Traffic
    03. The Soul Investigators - Hung Up
    04. The New Mastersounds - Zambezi
    05. The Boogaloo Investigators - Heartbreaker
    06. The Gene Drayton Unit - Teenage Kicks
    07. Speedometer - Work It Out
    08. Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings - I Just Dropped In To See What Condition My Condition Was In
    09. The Poets of Rhythm - Funky Booty
    10. The Baker Brothers - Super 8 (CD only bonus)
    11. Color Climax - Black Rite
    12. Big Daddy Moochin' - See & Don't See
    13. Reverend Cleatus & The Soul Saviours - Salt Popcorn
    14. Lefties Soul Connection - It's Your Thing/Hey Pocky A-way

    Out end of May.

      From what I've heard - drunk, dancing to Shiftless' records etc - that New Mastersounds record is blooming great.
      Mixes, compilations and the like

            I've seen the NMS countless times and they definately put on a good show....musicianship is totally high and i'd probably rate them as one of ...if not the best funk band around at the moment....they have a great body of work...they were playing way before the funk revival properly kicked off over here and they're ardent fans of jazz/funk and soul...best of all they're really nice people...PROPS

            P.S. That Hot Funky and Sweaty looks like it's gonna be a BIG seller...
            Country be dyin like poor people do
            Hospitals be closing...doors to me and you (Lopazz - Blood)

            And here's some other stuff that i get up to...

                Probably at the same time as the LP now. Label had to switch manufacturers which pushed it back a bit... Fucking annoying that!

                Yeah, NMS are very good live. They don't consider themselves as part of any 'deepfunk' noscene at all - just do their own thing, which is maybe why some 45 knobs moan about them... In fact, hardly any of the bands subscribe to the this deepfunk noscene nonsense crap - they just do what they love doing. There's no emphasis on 'authentic recording techniques' either - they just like a certain sound and that's it.

                  Known Eddy for years, top bloke...
                  As Nick mentioned, he just likes making music, not bothered about trends, scenes and underground coolness.
                  He use to work for one of my DJ partners, Gip Dammone (Dig Family). He helped out in the office a few days a week, sorting out band & DJ bookings. They are such a tight band, having played together now for many years, and Eddy always seems to find great new singers from the Yorkshire area for the band.

                    ok so i'm just not getting this. Love the first album. Not got the second but went into disque records the other day to listen to the third lp. Just didnt move me. Not a patch on the first. ok ok before we all flame its 'mho' but are you all really diggin it that much?

                    By the way nick congrats on the line up for the lp. So many people concentrating on the old stuff when you can get a line up like that with the new. Defo on my list. When you takin orders fella cos i'm ready.

                    Talking of the boogaloo investigators anyone heard their album yet. Only on cd as far as i remember. Any news about an lp?

                          1) Anyone heard the latest Quantic Soul Orchestra LP?

                          2) What are they like live?

                              note heard it from lp yet but there is a link to some audio at :

                              http://www.picadillyrecords.co.uk/

                              Note if you search for just quantic soul you get the baker brothers remix also
