    This is the new compilation by TSTD/DJ Supermarkt with Soul/Funk Coverversions of Westcoast/AOR/Yachtpop gems! TSTD returns with another trip into the musical past of the sundrenched Westcoast: This time DJ Supermarkt unearthed 17 Soul & Funk Coverversions of original Westcoast/AOR/Yachtpop gems. As slightly expected, the The Afro-American musicians add a heavy dose of Funk and heavenly Soul to the game. The original tracks are covered by big Soul & Funk acts like Aretha Franklin, Chaka Khan, Quincy Jones, Brothers Johnson, but also forgotten acts like The Ebonys, Leslie Smith, Side Effect. And you can find tracks originally performed by the big league of the Westcoast, like The Doobie Brothers, Fleetwood Mac, Hall & Oates, Steely Dan, Wings, and even The Beach Boys, alongside lesser known acts like Ned Doheny, Bill LaBounty, Airplay! Most tracks are from the late 70s/early 80s, but failed to become big hits and fell under the radar. Like Chaka Khan doing a seriously funky version of Fleetwood Mac's Everywhere (from an unreleased album recording), next to obscure reworks like Leslie Smith's version of Nothin You Can Do About It by the overlooked Airplay (Jay Graydon and David Foster). There are especially surprising versions here, like Millie Jacksonís gospel-like rendering of This Is It by Kenny Loggins/Michael McDonald, or Billy Paul's Black Power-influenced version of Paul McCartney/Wings Let Em In and the rare cover of The Beach Boys God Only Known by Betty Everett. Overall another TSTD collection of smooth, sunny, extremely soulful and funky tracks, that needed to be dug-out to be heard again. This is Bottled Sunshine! Vinyl comes as usual in gatefold sleeve with liner notes, download code and 180g heavy orange double vinyl.

    Too Slow To Disco NEO Presents Glamour Hammer - Includes Is It True (Yuksek Remix)

    The original version seems to be everybody’s favorite track from the album already, reason enough for DJ Supermarkt to organize a Yuksek Remix that takes the original in irresistible, bouncy Modern-Disco territory.

    Glamour Hammer is the nom de plum of Swedish-based producer, songwriter and vocalist Adam Jonsson. In the comfort of his home studio, Glamour Hammer swings back and forth between creating dance-oriented disco house and jazz-infused dream pop with a sense of escapism and tongue-in-cheek attitude while always aspiring for a sense of timelessness and analogue feel. Drawing inspiration from a multitude of genres the most influential are 1970s-80s funk, disco, boogie, classic rock, Latin rhythms and Afropop.


    TRACK LISTING

    A1. Moods - Vulf’s Back Pocket Regroove
    A2. Glamour Hammer – Is It True (Yuksek Remix) 
    B1. Diskobeistet – Baner Vei (Extended Dub)

    The Ladies Of Too Slow To Disco Vol. 2

      On Volume 2 of The Ladies of Too Slow to Disco, DJ Supermarkt has brought together 16 compelling tunes and hidden gems from 1974-82 that tell a deeper, more political story, while taking the suave sounds you love into new territory: soul, gospel and jazz. The songs on this compilation are from women who were taking control of their own careers, making an independent stance in the some of the most trying years for women in the history of the recording industry. In an effort to tell the often untold, yet deeply influential, stories of this delicious period of music, Volume 2 highlights songs from players who broke through the machismo that sat upon the glass ceiling before them to create classics.

      As with every TSTD release, you will uncover lost classics and should-have-been-hits into the overdue limelight. You’ll find confessional funk and sultry disco, 5th Avenue flounce and soulful midnight aching. You will discover artists here who were movers and shakers from the 1970s Women’s Music movement, artists determined to fashion a music industry that worked for them. You’re in the company of musical royalty. The Ladies of Too Slow to Disco 2 brings you the smartest writers and singers, Grammy winners and unforgettable performers, all at the peak of their powers.

      STAFF COMMENTS

      Patrick says: Presumably adorned in linen trousers and an apricot scarf, DJ Supermarket delivers another essential set of deep yachters and enticing AOR from an all female cast. If you need any more persuading, head straight for that Marti Caine track and thank me later…
