low-down and dirty jazz goes right back to the early 1900s in storyville, after the bands had played their hot tunes in the evening for dancing couples, the musicians would head off to the after-hours joints and play a less energetic but more bluesy kind of music, enabling them and their late-night audiences to get through to the early hours of the morning without suffering total exhaustion. and nobody in new orleans laid into the blues so low down and dirty as buddy bolden, whose funky butt became a staple in the repertoire of the citys early jazz bands.
jacksonville, florida, 1960. charles hungry williams mentors young clayton fillyau after he had just joined the james brown band: *i dont care where you put it on those drums, remember where 1 is and you ll never lose the time. listen to hungry on huey smiths *talk to me baby* and then listen to how clayton turns it into a relentless breakbeat on james browns *i ve got money*. earl kings *trick bag*, prefiguring the meters, is as good an example of early new orleans funk as can be found.
ten thousand yen is proud to present our new signing: presk. he weighs in with the sublime 4 track love again e.p. as the first ever 12 inch on tty. we first came across presk in eindhoven last year playing support for doc daneeka. he played a set of straight original material and tore the place down. since then we have heckled and begged until he finally signed his life away to us, and now that we own his soul we plan on sharing it with you. this e.p. comes correct for 2011 - with some of the most relevant dance music around right now, in our humble opinion. sharp edged rhythmic dance music with a distinctly techno lean - we really love the tunes and are super excited about this release, hope you are feeling them too.

after retiring from the jamaican police force arthur duke reid established his treasure isle liquor store and sound system in pink lane kingston and was crowned the undisputed king of sound and blues in 1956, 57 and in 58. the duke then moved into record production and after relocating the store to 33 bond street, he then built a recording studio on top of his new premises in 1966. according to the musicians and singers the wooden construction of the treasure isle recording studio gave the music a distinctive warmth and richness and with resident engineer byron baron/smithy smith at the controls, the sound of a bond street recording was immediately recognisable.
but the studio one sound is different to the treasure isle sound! the people have to know. - bunny striker lee
