Flaash-All Nightlong 12"

A nice boogie track to start off your week. "All Nightlong" is the instrumental version of "Jammin", released on Sound Of New York records in 1981. A top notch groover to be certain!

The Mau Mau Clan Overlords-Contact Sport

A great one-off cut from the excellent Hurby's Machine LP, which features a number of strong cuts from Antoinette, Super Lovers and others. Definitely an LP worth checking out, from one of hip hop's shining stars.

Tony Toni Tone-Little Walter(12" Serious Groove Mix)

Comprised of brothers D'wayne and Charlie Ray Wiggins(AKA Raphael Saadiq) and cousin Timothy Riley, this trio brought their new jack sound to the masses in the late eighties and were hugely successful into the nineties. Their first LP ,Who? , went gold and featured the track "Little Walter" which went #1 on the R&B charts. I have featured the Serious Groove remix here off the 12" single. In the nineties the hits continued with "Feels Good", "Anniversary" and "If I Had No Loot", amongst others. In the mid-nineties the group disbanded and Charlie pursued a solo career(a hugely successful one at that) under the moniker Raphael Saadiq.
