GAMM

After dazzling us with "Tweaks" for Local Talk, Opolopo returns with more "Tweaks" for the sister label GAMM! Ditching the Chi-town vibe and this with a homage to the Brazilian fusion sounds from the late 70's and early 80's. A sound that he's always been a huge fan of apparently.

On the A-side George Duke's cover of Milton's "Cravo E Canela" gets a lovely house bump, while on the B, Flora Purim's classic "Love Lock" (with G.Duke on keys) is tweaked into a melodic jazz-boogie number.

As always, Opolopo adds some of his own keyboard wizardries to make both tweaks just a little extra nippy! Expert stuff..

Love Drop

Lebanon / Liberation

Love Drop returns with his third EP on GAMM and we dare to say that this is his best one so far. On the A side we're taken on a +10 minute long Lebanese inspired jazz-oriental-disco journey that perfectly blends east and west together...epic shit!

On the B, we take a trip to Brazil together with George Duke for a grand Brazilian-disco jam that has a huge sing-a-long anthem chorus...re-run the summer all year 'round on this joint!

The Magic Twins

Gilles Tribute

This one's for all the jazz-fusion heads out there and a celebratory tribute to the undisputed king of anything jazzy, Mr. Gilles Peterson. It's mental how popular this sound has got with 'young folks' these days, but that's largely in part due to Petersons untiring representation of the genre and all it's developments.

And so Japanese duo The Magic Twins deliver a strong 3-track EP which is full of jazz-fusion reworks that would make the dancers at the legendary London Club Dingwalls swing just a little longer and harder in all directions! All three tracks are frenetic, high energy numbers and with a dare-I-say-it, light, skippy feel that reminds one that Summer might not be that far away after all! What really strikes is the detail in both the arrangements and the production, with a plethora of instruments recorded in beautiful high definition and sounding super lush and incredibly detailed off the record. Audiophile heads get your latest tackle round this record you won't be sorry! 

STAFF COMMENTS

Matt says: GAMM enlist The Magic Twins for a suitably top drawer tribute to the UK's jazz authority Gilles Peterson. Not only that, the care and attention to pressing and mastering is second to known, so this'll sound grrrreat at your next high brow listening session / Klipshorn powered loft party.

Japan's Dai San returns with his second EP on GAMM and this time he goes on a jazzy escapade with three cuts ranging from Disco-Jazz, Fusion-Funk and deep Rare Grooves.

The A side begins with 'Sundance', a peak time Jap-Fusion Disco jam sounding like if it was Azymuth's Jazz Carnival twin sister...a definitive dancer for the jazzier crews.
On the flipside, Dai San goes deeper with the sunkissed, squelchy and slick fusion jam "Steps" (close your eyes and it's a lost dancefloor classic from Steely Dan), and the spaced-out jazz-glide of "Nite Sprite", a total cosmic groover if ever I've heard one.

Debut release on GAMM with a strong two track EP from Elado...

On the A we get a heavy gospel funk/disco tune from a rare Frank Dell LP. Elado has with good measures edited out the unwanted parts and reassembled the track into a solid dance floor weapon...Tune !

Meanwhile on the B side we find an 80's version of MJ's 'Shake Your Body' but made in Brazil and with Portuguese lyrics...tasty!

Opolopo Vs. Yellowjackets / Eddie Harris

Matinee Idol / La Carnival

Opolopo continjues his rein over the lands of Gamm and delivers his characteristic blend of soulful and jazzy dance music like never before.

Yellowjackets 'Matinee Idol' gets a supreme uptempo treatment and gives you an instant feel-good factor. Together with some very smart vocal samples from Whitney Houston this is 100% peak time material for those who like it sleek and sexy.

On the B-side Opolopo went on a deep search and found an overlooked Eddie Harris jazz-fusion jam from 1987 that comes with some amazing doo-wop scatting vocals and amazing keyboard action from Opolopo himself.

Jazzy, bumpy and very dance-friendly indeed!

Not just edits, tweaks!

DJ Emanuel & Rahaan

Present Remixes From The Dungeon

    Edit supremo, Chicago royalty and all-star purveyor of good house and disco, Rahaan returns with fellow Chicagoan and close associate DJ Emanuel armed with two killer tracks for the institutional GAMM label.

    Side A sees Arthur Russell / Loose Joints’ "Is It All Over My Face” reinforced and ushered forward by some light garage house beats. Are those the original vocal stems? I'm not sure, I think they might be some newly recorded parts making this much of a COVER, than an EDIT. I'm not splitting hairs however and if you're after something with a bit more umph and urgency than the original then this'll defo do the job.

    Side B sees Phreek's "I'm A Big Freak" tastefully edited and also given a thumping great kick behind it. A certified nightclub rocket blast, there's very few dancers that haven't shaken their shit to this slice of Patrick Adam's-penned genius.

    Martin says: Winter nights are drawing in and Boris' regime continues to disgruntle and anger. Better get myself some feel-good disco on then, the most relief one man can get without using his right hand...
