slick, sultry and sublime rnb infused with soul & jazz. originating in belgium at the tail end of the 1960s and into the 70ís, popcorn was a music and dance scene with an emphasis on often obscure black american records of the then recent past. drawing immediate parallels with the ukís northern soul scene from approximately the same time, young people would flock from all corners of belgium to cram into a converted farmhouse barn to dance to these exotic sounds. but whilst northern favoured an often uptempo, stomping 60ís soul sound, popcorn focused almost entirely on slower, moodier numbers.
the double vinyl comes in a gatefold sleeve with download code included.
boston label get on down can always be counted on to produce high quality reissues of hip-hop gems, and of course this album is no exception. lord willin was the acclaimed breakthrough release by virginia duo clipse, featuring rappers pusha t and no malice, backed by the eccentric production of the neptunes. both mcs had past connections to the underground drug world, which influenced the gritty, hard-hitting street rap within. the album also featured guest spots from jadakiss, styles p, nore, fabolous, faith evans, and early-in-their career appearances from sean paul, kelis, and lil wayne. get on down now presents the album, fully re-mastered and re-constructed on double vinyl, after long being out of print in the format.
now hitting release number six, fly by night music serves up something slightly different from riccio (bosconi // super value), complete with a remix from craig smith (6th borough project), for its latest offering. this is an equally classy release but more of an obvious disco tip. coming in a press of 200 limited blue vinyl and a letter press sleeve, this is another boutique package from fbnm. the man behind the jungle way ep is italian riccardo zanaroli aka riccio, who most recently appeared on the widely lauded bosconi compilation bosconi stallions. a dj, collector, producer and record seller, riccio is a staple on the italian scene and brings plenty of louche disco funk to this release.
it is like this Ė tramp records know vintage funk and soul. they know what you want to hear before you know you want to hear it. hell, they even know what you want to hear before you even knew it existed. but in a world where the rediscovery of golden era 60s and 70s funk and soul has been ongoing for the best part of a quarter of a century, how can this still be possible? what is left that hasnt already been repackaged, re-released, compiled and covered to within an inch of its life? listen to feeling nice volume 2 and you will get the answer.

in keb darges own words:
i ve done many a compilation in my day, mostly based around the tunes i played at my long running deep funk nights in madame jo jos. that night is no longer on the go, possibly due to a growing lack of interest on my part, (sorry). in the last few years the lost & found nights at the club have been my real passion, and indeed little ediths and andy smiths passion too.
what a marvelous era this is for good music. we may still have pure shite like dub step pulling in large numbers of sheep, but an equal number of youngsters are being attracted to retro, or at least retro sounding music. people tell me it is because the youth are fed up with computerized music, or men with drug problems angrily shouting at them over a dull repetitive beat, but i know lots of teenagers who have bypassed this muck all together. must be the internet that is helping kill off the demand for empty music. you no longer need to go to a retro club night, or indeed search out rare records to be exposed to good music, the internet is full of the stuff. my fifteen year old daughter is a marc bolan fan who while researching the poor fellows influences discovered chuck berry, sun records, etc, etc. i dont really know or understand why so many are at last getting into the good stuff, but they are, and it is wonderful for the likes of me.
