MO' RECORD KICKS in Japan!Published on Venerdì, 19 Marzo 2010
We are pleased to announce that the MO' RECORD KICKS compilation will be distributed in Japan starting April 21st by the legendary and historic P-Vine Records. This collection of b-sides, remixes and previously unreleased tracks that appear on CD for the first time celebrates 7 years of Record Kicks music, providing an exhaustive introduction to the label's sound, from deep funk and vintage soul to nu funk, big beats, titty shakers, future disco and jazz-dance. The included names are of wide scope, and go from established RK artists such as KOKOLO, DIPLOMATS OF SOLID SOUND, and DOJO CUTS (just to name a few), to more recent additions to the label such as RAY HARRIS & THE FUSION EXPERIENCE, THE UNDERBELLY or THE THIRD COAST KINGS.
Mo' Record Kicks is out now on CD / Digital Download, and was anticipated at the beginning of the month by a double-sider 45 with two new songs by THE HAWK feat. HANNAH COLLINS and LINK QUARTET feat. GIZELLE SMITH (entitled "Don't Judge A Book By Its Cover" / "If You Wanna Be My Man" and available on 45 / Digital Download). With a new 'Japanized' Mo' Record Kicks cover and label, P-Vine will be soon be making this highly enjoyable compilation available to our listeners in the far east, so Dōmo arigatō!
"Superb new maxi from Record Kicks. Full of wicked Nu Northern Soul, sensational Modern Funk, Latin and Jazz filled vibes. Some cuts you might know, but the majority you don't. But all are worthy of a place in your player & in your record collection. Record Kicks.....with this collection of danceable gems, they certainly do. Very highly recommended!" - Bob Jones (Future Soul)
"Is it 7 years already!? No sign of a seven year itch for Record Kicks who continue to churn out the finest funk and soul 45s that side of the Alps! Always top quality!" - Dom Servini (Wah Wah 45s / Shook / Echoes)
