LD-01-Art-A

Detroit-based wunderkind, Dustin Alexander, better known by the alias, Pontchartrain, breaks in the freshly minted label, Lovedancing (a new label helmed by Whiskey Disco patriarch, Sleazy McQueen), with it’s debut release, the “Burnin’ EP.” Comprised of three cuts on a lovely 12″ disc, things kick off with the title cut, “Burnin,” a tune aptly titled as it’s sure to set more than a few dancfloors ablaze. Relying on a classic, Gwen McCrae tune as the framework, we get a looped-out, beefed-up version ideal for any club situation. “Huggin'” takes things a little deeper with spacey pads and dub flourishes while the closing number, “Sinnin'” is an epic rework of a jazz classic that transforms the original into pure, peak time euphoria.

The Editor’s Kutz label drops in for it’s sixth installment of re-edit wizardry with a stout assembly of producers including Ed Wizard & Disco Double Dee, Doc Jam, The Silver Rider, Sleazy McQueen and label owner, Vinyladdicted. This 12″ package is pressed up and a minty-cool, opaque vinyl and limited to 300 copies with no intention of a repress or digital release, so snap it up while you can!

We kick things off with Vinyladdicted & Sleazy McQueen’s “Free (From Social Narcotics),” a groove-laden, mid-tempo stepper with a loopy bassline and rich organ riffs. Next up, Ed Wizard & Disco Double Dee drop the “Stellar Dub,” a cosmic voyage to the outer reaches of the funkiest known galaxies while on the flipside, The Silver Rider gets steamy and sultry with “Good Luvin’ Baby.” Closing things up is Doc Jam and “In Your Eyes,” another looped out foray into boogie-territory with tons of swagger and booty-bumpin’ gusto.

2015 has been a big year for Dutchman producer, Junktion, with heavily lauded releases for Sleazy Beats Black Ops, Slow Town Records plus an amazing outing on Detroit Swindle’s, Heist Recordings, as Fouk, his collaboration project with Daniel Lesemen. This latest outing for Razor-N-Tape Reserve is no exception and further cements his knack for groovy, organic house that is as funky as it is feel-good. Four cuts span this lovely, transparent-green 12″ record that kicks of with the title track, “Hot & Bothered,” a low-slung gem with chunky percussion and soulful croons. Next up, “I’m Wishin” treads familiar territory with some classic, Stephanie Mills samplage flipped in a very refreshing way followed by my pick of the bunch, “Fling Cleaning,” with it’s sunshine-laced swagger. Closer, “Visions Of You,” wraps things up with a dramatic drop in tempo but keeping the vibes of heavy funk, soul and irresistibility.
