The Patchouli Brothers

Part One

In the world of disco edits The Patchouli Brothers are as in demand as you can possibly be right now.

Their edits and reworks are played and hyped by all the major players in the game and now they got a two-part release on GAMM.
On the first EP we begin with All Good Things, a looped up disco nugget aimed straight for the peak hour...decent!
On the B, we get more organic with a proper feel-good disco thang in classic Patchouli style.

The second EP in The Patchouli Brothers two part release on GAMM begins with 'Fuqua & James', an uplifting, warm and soulful disco jam that aims straight for the heart of any soulful disco head.

The B side 'Peace, Love & Understanding' is for all the Philly fans out there...just straight-up good disco music.

Mark De Clive-Lowe

Love Will Save The Day / Love Supreme

Mark De Clive-Lowe gets busy with some classic soulful house action here, delivering two big cuts for the dance.

"Love Will Save The Day" utilizes a disco-flavoured vocal part, pairs it with anthemic piano chords, twinkling keyboards and a MAW-styled B-line. The result - a hand-aloft burst of feel-good energy and maximum grins guaranteed. The kinda track you can pop out at the end of a long session to unite the whole crowd under an umbrella of endorphins.

"Love Supreme" places a saxophone line at the focus of this expansive house jaunt while grand atmospheres and rushing sweeps add a captivating, almost cinematic quality. Abstract and just slight proggy, it's the kinda track big room DJs like Francois K and MCDE would use to devastating effect. 


SMBD

Sun Ra / Elder Jeffrey Roberson & The New Life Singers

Perhaps taking cues from Mike Huckaby, SMBD gets his mitts around Sun Ra's classic "Space Is The Place" Already receiving heavy spins by Gilles Peterson, it seems like dancefloors are more and more willing to embrace the jazz spirit at the moment, which we are fully behind.

Also included is a phazed-out and super dreamy 'gospel flip' of "We Need Love" which is as heavenly slice of house-tinged soul music you're as likely to hear all year... Recommended!


STAFF COMMENTS

Sil says: How do you handle something as special and challenging as Sun Ra and make it dancefloor friendly? And by that I mean house friendly. SMBD might have the answer in these two excellent edits done in sophisticated fashion. No cheese here!

Red Astaire

Follow Me / The Wildstyle

A beast of a track here that was pretty ubiquitious around 2003. Main elements are a catchy xylophone melody and a D'Angelo / Method Man sample lifted from 'Left & Right' - It pleased many punters with its perfect blend of bossanova and suave soul beats. This was on constant rotation back then and many will be very happy to see it officially reissued, rediscovered and hopefully on some instances, discovered by new audiences. 
 
B Side has to be a James Brown sample - that shout says it all. Proper breakbeat / funk affair on this one. The piano loop is a monster on itself and the vinyl floritudes give it a raw feel that few edits achieve. Total classic. 
 
Both sides are gold. No need to listen to this one. Just buy it, you will not regret it. Limited quantities!

Sil says: Few edits reach the category of classics. Here you have two on one single 7 incher. Official reissue oozing warmth and energy left and right!

Prescription Pricing Authority

1-2-1 / Lucky Duck

    The Prescription Pricing Authority duo hails outta London town and delivers the second 7" inch release ever on Gamm. Big, ballsy disco occupies side A, rich in strings, timpani and fat ass bass. It's the kinda raw disco that DJs like Zaf (Love Vinyl) and Mark Grusane (Chicago) like to spin out in the field. On the flip we take a jazz-funk tangent, "Lucky Duck" riding a sophisticated arrangement full of wild flute lines, rampant slab bass and wacked out wah-wah guitar, not to mention the dozens of keyboard lines that litter the mix. Surely big for the Southport Weekender crowd and all the soul all day traditions. Pop yer dancing shoes and hit the floor!

    Afshin (Djoon, Paris) and Kiss My Black Jazz make their Gamm debut with two party-starting reworks. "Trouble In My Way" is so unequivocally suited to the Gamm blueprint Afshin were no-doubt signed before their bums touched the floor of the A&R office. It's a hand-clappin' gospel house cut up with that undeniably house shuffle n swing with driving rhythms and killer organ solos - proper incendiary stuff for the daytime dances.

    "The Riot" is a more tradition jazz-funk offering; bustling, funky and driving by a careering organ solo that drives the pieces like a bull in china shop, with just the tight-ass guitar chops keeping the whole thing from driving out of control.




    STAFF COMMENTS

    Matt says: Love Gamm me. Can always been relied upon provide wide smiles and plenty of bump. The one hundred and twenthy seventh (!!!) release on the label proves no exception as gospel house and jazz-funk styles are tweaked by Afshin and Black Jazz for maximum booty bashing pleasure.

    Turbojazz

    Music For Cats Vol.2

      Milano producer Turbojazz back on Gamm with "Food For Cats Vol.2", throwing down Fender Rhodes fusion style with two full on jazz-Latin /Brazil-house hybrids aimed straight for 'floor. Bursting with deep sample sources that'll pique the attention of the hardcore jazz frat, Turbojazz beefs tings up in typical Gamm fashion, swinging the drums around a tasty 4/4 and supplementing the bottom end with additional sub woofer sensory boosts. Highly functional and, most importantly, very enjoyable!
