"One of the best and most consistent labels on the 'Deep Funk' scene. So many great and important releases!" Dj Snowboy (Blues&Soul Magazine UK).
"In a sorry musical world where weekly I subject my poor ears to the latest tawdry releases, it's always a treat to spot a 45 from Record Kicks. Not only something I might like, Something I know I will" Mark Lamarr (BBC 2 / MTV UK).
"RK is like a great wine, it gets better and better with every passing year. If you are wondering why there has been a renewed interest in soul & funk over the past few years then RK has to take some of the credit!"Craig Charles (Funk&Soul Show, BBC 6Music).
"Record Kicks is one of the funkiest labels around." Dusty Groove USA.
"A great label...keeping vinyl alive too!"Rob Luis (Tru Thoughts)
