Tu Jamas (7")
Cat: SG 039. Rel: 15 May 17
International
  1. Tu Jamas (4:14)
  2. Solo Tu Amor (4:55)
Review: Although best known as the lead singer of well-regarded Japanese funk-soul band O.A.S.B, Amy Akaoka has long dreamed up recording a salsa album in the style of '60s and '70s pianist and bandleader Larry Harlow. This tasty two-track 7" single is her first release in the style - the album will appear later in the year - and is as summery, breezy and life affirming as you'd expect. She begins with "Tu Jamas", where male backing vocals, jaunty pianos and her own passionate lead vocal ride a sweat-soaked salsa rhythm. Turn to the B-side for the horn-heavy delight that is breezy salsa shuffler "Solo Tu Amor". Naturally, both are hugely authentic to the style of salsa championed by Harlow.

Sorrow Tears & Blood (7") (1 per customer)
Cat: SG 042. Rel: 11 Sep 17
International
  1. Sorrow, Tears & Blood (4:50)
  2. Dear World (3:57)
Review: Congolese musician Kiala Nzavotunga is something of an unheralded hero of the Afrobeat scene. Since deciding to visit Nigeria in the early 1970s he's played with many legendary figures and bands, including Fela Kuti, and famously founded one Europe's first Afrobeat band, Ghettoblaster. Now based in Japan, Afroblaster is his latest musical endeavour, and this is the outfit's debut single. A-side "Sorrow, Tears & Blood" offers a contemporary update of the Fela Kuti/Africa '70 sound, with a straighter 4/4 rhythm that should appeal to disco and house fans as well as Afrobeat enthusiasts. On the flip, "Dear Blood" offers a more traditional take on the style, with Kiala's vocal riding punchy horns, flanged funk guitars and a Tony Allen style drumbeat.

Jazz
  1. Pista Libre (part 1) (4:49)
  2. Pista Libre (part 2) (3:23)
Review: Percussionist Takashi Nakazato is no newcomer to the Japanese nu-jazz scene, having been a regular contributor to Jazztronik records since the dawn of the millennium. Pista Libra Parts 1 & 2, though, is his debut solo 7". He kicks things off with Part 1, when ascending and descending Latin piano lines and snaking sax solos ride his own impeccable, salsa-tinged percussion. As the track progresses, Nakazato introduces some delightful jazz guitars, too. On the flip, "Part 2" is an altogether heavier beast, with Nakazato fully showcasing his range of percussion skills while sharp funk guitars and manic drum solos rage above. It sounds like the sort of sweaty jazz-dance workout that many would associate with British percussionist Snowboy.

Good Guy (limited 7")
Cat: SG 032. Rel: 18 Apr 16
Funk
  1. Good Guy (3:22)
  2. Bad Boy (3:44)
Review: In amidst a veritable deluge of seven inch-shaped sharpness from Japan's crucial Soul Garden label this week comes this absolute must grip 45 session from Q.A.S.B. The nine-piece Tokyo funkateers have been holding it down since 2005 and this seven picks out a horn heavy highlight from last year's Q.A.S.B. III LP in the shape of "Good Guy." Throwing down a similar vibe to the Quantic Soul Orchestra, this track is all about the lead vocal from Amy A and those warm, tooting horns. Face down and QASB engage flipmode, slowing the tempo down and cranking the sass up on "Bad Boy". If seven inches were vegetables this would be one hot pepper!

Get Down (7")
Cat: SG 049. Rel: 06 Nov 17
Funk
  1. Get Down (4:56)
  2. Double Decker (3:59)
Review: Long-serving Japanese band QASB tend to have two musical modes. Their releases are either sweet and soulful or funky and fulsome. This 7" definitely sits in the latter category. A-side "Get Down" is a cheery, up-tempo workout full of rising orchestration, bouncy disco-funk grooves, jazz-funk flourishes and a vocal from A Yu Mi urging us to shake our stuff on the floor. The party continues on the mostly instrumental flipside "Double Decker", a sumptuous, all-action affair full of sparring instrument solos, sweaty disco drum breaks and dreamy freestyle vocal improvisations. It reminded us a little of Pleasure's "Joyous", which is no bad thing.

Hold Me (7")
Cat: SG 050. Rel: 06 Nov 17
Soul
  1. Hold Me (4:57)
  2. You Make Me Feel (4:20)
Review: Japanese soul revivalists Q.A.S.B has been busy of late. This is their third single since July, a release rate that suggests their fourth full-length will soon be landing in stores. "Hold Me" sees them at their sunny, lazy and languid best, with A.Yu.Mi adding sultry vocals to a warm and groovy backing track rich in eyes-closed saxophone solos, clipped guitars and slowly rising horns. B-side "You Make Me Feel", an even more starry and sparkling cut with sweeter vocals and punchier horns, is almost as good as the A-side, especially when the jazzy electric piano solos drop in towards the end of the track. Proper "eyes-closed" material, all told.

Soul
  1. Thinking Of You (4:17)
  2. Thinking Of You (feat Hiro-A-Key) (4:16)
Review: Having been a feature of Japan's revivalist funk scene since the mid-2000s, Q.A.S.B should be a familiar name to those who dig for dinked soul sevens. "Thinking of You" is their first single of 2017 and arrives a couple of months before the due date of the Q.A.S.B IV full-length. The title track, which resides on side A, is a superb piece of relaxed, summertime soul that increases in heaviness towards a sweltering, funk-fuelled conclusion. Turn to the flip for an alternative version in which male vocalist Hiro-A-Key joins the band's regular female singer to turn the track into a super-sweet duet rich in gently rising horns and sumptuous soul grooves.

Slugfest (limited 7")

Funk
  1. Slugfest (4:19)
  2. Yellow & Green (4:05)
Review: Fans of Osaka funk fusionists Stepak Takraw are spoilt this week with a deluge of musical goodness by the band arriving courtesy of Soul Garden. After spending an hour or so assessing the respective charms of these records from the crew, it's this Slugfest 7" that stands out in particular. Up top the title track pulls no punches, a slick lick of funk guitar riffage acting as the lead for the band to follow and lay down a taut, fast paced funk composition that leans on their well-honed talent for throwing cumbia elements into the mixer. "Yellow & Green" is there for those who prefer their funk to sound a bit more traditional.
