Key To Love (Is Understanding)

    The latest installment of Light In The Attic’s exclusive vinyl and digital singles series features Toronto’s BADBADNOTGOOD with Jonah Yano on vocals covering “Key To Love (Is Understanding),” originally recorded in 1982 by Milwaukee’s funk/soul pioneers Majestics. The newly recorded cover and the original version are available for streaming and on “Majestic Pink” 7” vinyl.
    “As lovers of old soul, funk and rare recordings, ‘Key to Love’ has always been a song that has had an impact on our heart and ears,” BADBADNOTGOOD said. “We hope our version relays how special this song is and gives it some new listeners and a second life […] It’s an incredibly beautiful song that deserves to be heard, and we hope to play a small part in that.”

    The original Majestics single is highly sought after by diggers and DJs worldwide not only for “Key To Love (Is Understanding) but also for ”Class A”, which is considered the first-ever rap recording to come out of Milwaukee.

    “It is a pleasant surprise,” Donald Cooper of Majestics said upon hearing BADBADNOTGOOD’s version of the song. “They did a good job and it was well done with their own slight personal twist […] [it’s] an honor to be recognized."

    The single follows Mac DeMarco’s cover of Haruomi Hosono’s “Honey Moon” in the series, which features artwork conceptualized by Los Angeles-based fine artist Robbie Simon. These tunes come on the heels of widely popular past entries in the series, including pop-auteur Ariel Pink with future-funk pioneer Dâm Funk covering Donnie & Joe Emerson’s eternal anthem “Baby,” the inimitable Mark Lanegan covering the melancholy folk of Karen Dalton, and the one-and-only Iggy Pop with the Zig Zags transforming Betty Davis’ dirty funk into a heavy Sabbath grind.

    Mint Condition continues its top drawer excavation of all things classic in the storied history of dance music and club culture.

    3 In Key is a super rare, one-off Eye 4 Sound excursion from 3 of London's top tech-house golden era big wigs, Terry Francis, Nathan Coles & Jiten Archaya. Boasting some sick mixdown and engineering from the mighty Bushwacka! it's one of those real nuggets from the underground, a flash of genius, and a super tough ultra-rare EP to track down. 4 cuts of that wigged-out, minimal space funk that makes this era, and this style of music, so fresh today. This is exactly the sort of record that shows up on the playlists of your favourite global DJ's, released sometime around the late 1990's (there's no actual release date online) all of the untitled cuts contained within bristle with a special after-hours energy. Trust us, this is that top shelf tech-house business, finally repressed for the heads, the dancers, the freaks and the masses!

    3 In Key's only EP - "Untitled" has been legitimately re-released with the full involvement of the Eye 4 Sound crew for 2019 and remastered by London's Curve Pusher from the original sources especially for Mint Condition. 100% legit, licensed and released.


    says: Come to a Kickin' Pigeon DJ set very very soon, I gotta tip my beak to Mint Condition to putting me onto these late 90s tech-house bangers.. I thought it dug everything there was to dig from this period - but obviously not! If you're playing on the big rigs this Winter you need this!

    After issuing six albums in 39 months, nearly two a year, Stevie Wonder signed a new contract with Motown that let him determine his own release schedule. And then he went into the studio for two years to create the final masterpiece of his classic 70s album series. Released as a double LP with bonus four track EP and songbook in 1976, the album features Wonder's mix of love songs, socio-political offerings and uplifting gems, covering jazz-funk, soul and disco. It includes the singles "I Wish" and "Sir Duke", plus anthems like "Another Star", "As" and "Isn't She Lovely". A triple Grammy winner in the year of its release, "Songs In The Key Of Life" has gone on to be seen as the pinnacle of Stevie's career. Essential.
