MO' RECORD KICKS album launch partyPublished on Sabato, 06 Marzo 2010
Record Kicks is proud to present the compilation MO' RECORD KICKS, out on CD and digital download in all the best stores worldwide from March 15th. MO' RECORD KICKS is a collection of b-sides, remixes and previously unreleased cuts that appear here for the first time. The resulting 21 tracks can be considered a reliable overview of the RK sound, spacing from deep funk and vintage soul, to jazz-dance, titty shakers and future disco. It includes a number of established artists such as Kokolo (remixed by Lack of Afro), Dojo Cuts (with their revisitation of Marie Lyons' classic "See and Don't See"), and The New Mastersounds (remixed by Kenny Dope), as well as more recent additions to the label such as The Underbelly (with the song "Red Flames", which won't come out until the release of their full-length later in March), The Third Coast Kings (whose "Summalove" is an exclusive of this album), and Ray Harris & The Fusion Experience.
To celebrate this release Record Kicks is hosting a very, very special event we would like to invite you to, with undisputed hammond-beat kings THE LINK QUARTET performing live, joined by the funk revelation of 2009, satin smooth soulstress GIZELLE SMITH (Legere Rec / Kay-Dee). Gizelle left everybody speachless with her debut album "This is Gizelle Smith & The Mighty Mocambos" (Legere Records) and in November her first solo single "June" came out on Record Kicks. Super producer TM Juke (Alice Russel / Tru Thoughts) then remixed the track, which is now among the songs included in MO' RECORD KICKS. Sharing the stage with Gizelle will be renown group The Link Quartet. With three albums under their belt, numerous singles, and a considerable fan base, The Link Quartet are among the few Italian bands that can boast two coast to coast tours of the U.S. The group will be presenting their new single "If You Wanna Be My Man", expressly composed for MO' RECORD KICKS together with Gizelle Smith.
As if this weren't enough, spinning the hottest funk, soul and boogaloo 45s on the decks before and after the live performance will be NICK RECORDKICKS, who compiled M O' RECORD KICKS, together with special guest from London TIM K, resident DJ and promoter of Mind Yuh Business, the Brixton funk&soul clubnight that has been regularly hosting titans such as Snowboy, Jazzman Gerald, DJ Andy Smith and Ashley Beedle. Truly an event that should not be missed!
