At Record Kicks, we’re New MasterSounds fans! They certainly don’t need any introduction. As top contemporary deep funk band, they already have 5 full-length album and 21 seven-inch single releases under their belt and have been invited to play everywhere from US to Japan. The crazy idea we had was to ask to a bunch of talented contemporary funk, nu jazz and broken soul remixers to work on NMS’s “raw” deep funk sound. The result is NMS RE::MIXED an absolutely essential compilation full of irresistible nu funk, soul, broken, headz future classics.

Since everybody loves NMS was easy to welcome so many great producers on one record. From Gilles Peterson jazz award winner Nostalgia 77 together with fabulous Corinne Bailey Rae to “king” Kenny Dope. From Lack Of Afro (Freestyle Records) to Tru Thoughs bandito Dielser here together with sensational Laura Vane. Not to mention Lanu aka Lance Ferguson from the The Bamboos, Ju Ju Orchestra aka the grooviest band in the international club jazz, mighty Smoove from Acid Jazz Records, from Holland nu afrobeat phenomenon AIFF (Unique Records), Dj Farrapo, Montreal’s Afrokats Records crew … and many more. This is a unique experience, 12 club stormers to hit the floor, proper djs and funk & soul lovers will need to take stock of it.
