Welcome to this week’s run down of physical releases shipping from the Kudos warehouse.
Freestyle digs deep to reissue this rare UK boogie 12″ by Take Three, originally released back in 1983. Forming the first drop in a new reissue directive from the label, focused primarily on unearthing rare and classic UK funk, soul & boogie. The latest storming 45 from Mukatsuku is a vocal version fronted by Tyra Hammond and it’s classic textbook explosive femme funk with brass stabs galore and twangy southern styled guitar.
Following the last year’s highly-acclaimed 45 by Oregano, Shay Landa and Markey Funk return to Delights with a new way-out collaboration! DECADE, the sixth album by Calibro 35, the legendary cinematic funk combo sampled by Dr. Dre and Jay-Z, gets a reissue on ltd edition Crystal Yellow vinyl and digital deluxe edition with bonus tracks.
William Stuckey‘s previously unreleased Everything That’s Good In Life is up there with his finest moments, it’s got everything that would have made this a classic over the years and no doubt will make it a future classic for years to come. Also on AOTN, a small run of picture sleeve to celebrate the use of Slow Hot Wind in the Tyler The Creator‘s single Hot Wind Blows.
