Milan based Record Kicks has been constantly pitching black grooves for the last 10 years. All started in 2003 thanks to the effort of Milan based record collector, dj and black music enthusiast Nick (RK), with volume one of SoulShaker (now we’re at n.7), a newly collection dedicated to the contemporary funk&soul scene. Not many funk bands were around in that period, Daptone Records was just at the beginning and Neal Sugarman was very surprised in receiving a phone call from Milan with a license request for his newly Sharon Jones & The Dap-kings and Sugarman 3 projects. Since then we have been putting the spotlights on the contemporary funk & soul scene - with frequently excursions into afrobeat, dancefloor jazz and rocksteady - releasing new artists from all over the planet. 51 artists in total on more than 100 releases of which 90 have been on vinyl We’ve counted over 40,000 x 45s vinyl pressed and sold in every part of the world. Aside from new bands we’ve also re-released forgotten pearls from the past by legends like Betty Wright, Barrino Brothers, Robert Moore, Panama's Soul Fantastics and even brand new singles after years from Motown legend Floyd Lawson and Trojan Record star Susan Cadogan. Aside from the continuos support of a growing number of aficionados all over the world, Record Kicks counts VIP fans like DJ Andy Smith & Jazzman Gerald who respectively compiled for us Let’s BOOGALOO vol.4 and vol.5 comps, Craig Charles, DJ Snowboy, Mark Lamarr, Kenny Dope and dr.Bob Jones.
Throughout the year we'll also celebrate with some wild parties around, keep an eye open on here for details and remember that every month you'll get a free download gift from us on this website, read details here .... Thank you all and let's keep movin on a groove! It's #recordkicks10
