Not a RIP But Check This Out...

I want to present two non-stop Boogie-Funk mixes that blow my mind. These are not any RIPS of my doing, but by two contemporary Master Mixers Eddie Mars and BT Magnum.

Eddie Mars resides in Brooklyn and works with a collective called Vietcong Disco, which also includes mixers Stegarama and Russel Raze.

BT Magnum I learned about from Beat Electric who is currently based in San Francisco.

These mixes are top-notch blood pumping ass shaking rompers. This music is too much fun to not have it spread around. Quench your thirst for the white labels and tastee wet bass snaps.

BT Magnum - Stimulation!

Bobby Jonz - I Got The Touch If You Got The Time 12"

I present Bobby Jonz. A super sleazy 80's R&B artist I picked up at the most defunct and depressing record shop I have seen, it's a true Bed-Stuy gem (Birdell's). I think they messed up during the pressing because the instrumental side is much pitched down a bit from the vocal version.

The hook is great and the synths signature to the time, but I think the lyrics speak to me the most. "I GOT THE TOUCH IF YOU GOT THE TIME." SLeaZify the hOliDays

Wicked Witch - Chaos 1978-86

This little dandy is a re-ish compilation from a bass player and all around musician Wicked Witch whose real name is Richard Simms. The music can range from being incredibly brutal ("Fancy Dancer") to super tight, example ("Vera's Back"). I find it interesting that "Vera's Back," was recorded in 1978, which shows the earlier material had a different focus. Its that not that I find the focus any more musical than the 80's material, just stretched to a thinner tighter production style, with Dukish arranging, full band and the lack of a drum machine. The 80's material is about dense layered grooves.

There is no escaping "Under Your Spell," a bedroom tape that might actually make Prince smile. Mr. Simms writes grooves that run and run while holding onto a keen sense of psychedelia to roll it and make it edible.

Sexuality is strong with this one as well, which is illustrated on "X Rated." With orgasmic Oberheim swells, a perverse vocal track, and an ending fade that makes you wish you had the whole reel in your hands.

This is truly a record you're gonna want to check out.

Spiders Webb - I Don't Know Whats On Your Mind

A long lost forgotten drummer, Spider Webb, put out this solo record in 1976. Joining him is female funk/studio legend Carol Kaye. This record brings fantastic disco grooves, reggae grooves, and a sweet soul cut that digs deep in the pocket.

This would be Spider Webb's only solo record, but he would continue to play on as a studio musician throughout the decade. "I Don't Know Whats On Your Mind," was released on fantasy records and was produced by Jeff Lane. Enjoy.

The Bone - Exercise In Unland

Now that computing success rates are quite astounding, I am finally able to release a collection of somewhat new "Bone" material. If anyone snagged an old version from mediafire, this one has different mixes and a bit pumped up.

I am abandoning the myspace for now as it has been dead for quite sometime. If you want any info on Vulture Shit or The Bone or a new slew of tasty Vinyl Rips check out

So here it is "Exercise in Unland." Play it, spin it, rip it, torrent it, eat it, trash it, compress it, squash it, scoop it, hate it, finger it, but never make love to it.

Thanks to Jess Guido for the art and Girthman Stiffenstein for ||||@||||

Mtume - Juicy Fruit

Reaching the Jogalog this week is Mtume's "Juicy Fruit." Probably the most memorable tune of the LP would be "Juicy Fruit." Made super famous when it was sampled by Biggie for "Juicy," which appeared on "Ready to Die." While that maybe the only tune that will ring the familiar bell in your brainhead, its just one of an array of incredible dance songs.

Mtume's production style proves why he was one of the most sought after producers of the late 70's and 80's. He produced numerous records for Stephanie Mills (which may be Jogaloged very soon), also Donny Hathaway, Roy Ayers, and The Bar-kays. Not only does he have production credits, but also played percussion for Miles Davis in the early 70's. With all his experience he truly knew how to put a stellar band together and hit the feel right on the money. Enjoy the record and please shake your pants.
