harlem s legendary disco label queen constance has long been a cult favourite among fans of underground dance music for decades. one of many labels operating under the equally legendary p&p family of imprints queen constance was operated by one peter brown, a truly colossal figure in nyc s music scene, it s catalogue still fascinates music lovers to this day. covering a wide range of styles including gospel, early rap and disco the label s output continually finds it way into the playlists of respected dj s and selectors across the globe. high fidelity will be the first in a series of queen constance rarities to be reissued, an extremely rare and coveted record that can change hands on the second hand market for big big money, avoid those low rent bootlegs that are out there and cop this fully licensed repress. the group s self-titled sole long-player is a fantastic 6 track set of gritty, soulful and uplifting funky disco with a diy edge. not too much is known about the artists themselves, or even when the record was performed, recorded or released but it certainly sounds like a group who knew their craft inside out. the energy is high across the record and the group sound like they re on fire, just check the outrageously funkified magic carpet and you ll see what we mean. amazing. the whole project has that enchanting lo-fi, back-street feel to it in terms of production and the mind boggles as to how such a record would have come off had it been recorded at a motown or any other big studio, but no matter as this release is perfect the way it is, an essential piece of street-level nyc disco straight from the underground.
for their resopal debut, the italian duo metrophonique have delivered a trio of tracks that have a bunch of techno elements at their core. -high fidelity- brings together raw, jackin funk with a warm, driving bass line and scything, techy stabs while -something wrong- matches its fun, bouncy groove with an infectious and spritely melody. -deep- comes heavy with the oldskool, delivering a bed of beats and samples beneath the very heaviest of techno kicks.
excellent classic longplay with hit tunes like da funk, revolution 909, rollin & scratchin, rock n roll, around the world, burnin, alive, indo silver club ... 16 tracks from typical french funk to harder electrofied chicago techno!
