ECCENTRIC SOUL: THE FORTE LABEL

V.A. - ECCENTRIC SOUL: THE FORTE LABEL

Numeroの『Eccentric Soul』シリーズ、今回はカンサスシティ編!!

2LP |  ¥3,250 |  NUMERO (USA) |  2017-11-07 [再]  | 
NUMERO is the one of the best reissue label in USA. Their compilations surprised me every time, of course, this one also. Their works has big love to "Vinyl music". I really respect it. Dante Carfagna and Rob Sevier did deep research for the Forte label, and made a great booklet too. I met Dante a couple times. His ability to memorize is like a computer. I think his brain is twice bigger than mine.

TURN ME ON

JAY W. MCGEE - TURN ME ON

Kon & Amirのコンピにも収録された激レア絶品モダン・ディスコ・ブギーが再発!!

12" |  ¥1,650 |  LEGERE (DEU) |  2015-10-05 [再]  | 
This is also a great reissue. To be honest, B-side is OK ballad. But A-side "Turn me on" is sooo nice disco! It's available on Kon & Amir's 『Off Track Vol.2』,just on CD, not on Vinyl... So,this vinyl reissue makes me happy because I can play the song by SL-1200. I can recommend it not only for DJs but sweet soul lovers.

This is a fantastic reissue too.This is not reggae. This is Afro Jazz. Could I call the sound "Gorge style" too? I want to ask it to Mr.Mameshiba who works at JETSET. Aubey Adams's piano is sooo beautiful, anyway.

MUTE CITY EP

CID RIM - MUTE CITY EP

☆大推薦☆ウィーンのジャズ・ドラマー/マルチ楽器奏者Cid RimがLuckyMeデビューです!!

EP |  ¥1,500 |  LUCKYME (GBR) |  2014-06-27 [再]  | 
Cid Rim's new ep was good. I don't know his music background or anything about him. So I have no idea what I should write about it... I just like this ep, especially the tune called "Fade". I feel some ravey mood from it. I like Rave music too, by the way.

WE DON'T KNOW

DJ NORI - WE DON'T KNOW

ドイツ名門"Running Back"からDJ Nori X Maurice Fultonによる話題作!!

12" |  ¥1,250 |  RUNNING BACK (DEU) |  2015-03-28 [再]  | 
Japanese living-legend house DJ, Nori's new ep gave me a big surprise. The title tune is like Avan-pop sound! I really love it. He comes my store sometime. He is not only a great DJ. He has a great personal grace too. という訳で、意味なく中学生の英作文以下なチャートを書いてみました。日本語で書くと愚痴がでそうなので。おまけに誰も読んでいないし。もちろん今回も順不同です。では、最後に一言、I own a small used record store called "Weekend Records" near by JETSET TOKYO, English speakers welcome!
