It’s really hard to tell it better then Rodney Carmichael did in his write-up on this album(where you can also listen to all the tracks online), we still could not afford to overlook and not highlight it in our news blog. Being it a soooo long awaited album, Which Way Iz West (that we knew for years it was worked on and just pushed back all the time) but now our dreams have proven to come true and we are finally confirmed that MC Eiht finally drops this album, making it his first full-length solo album in a decade. Executively-produced by himself & DJ Premier, this album was predominantly produced by Eiht’s long-time partner, Brenk Sinatra (a producer from Austria with whom they released Keep It Hood EP before) while 3 tracks out of 15 were still produced by DJ Premier. The album features CMW, Kurupt, WC, Lady of Rage, B-Real, Xzibit, MayLAy, Bumpy Knuckles, Big Mike, The Outlawz & DJ Premier himself.
This album is released in both CD (pre-orders are open) & Vinyl (will be announced soon) formats and available for ordering exclusively @ PREMIERWUZHERE Webshop (which has been referred to by DJ Premier on his Facebook page as “the only place you can get the cd or vinyl around the world”).
After a lil’ break, the French-own Boogie Butt Records label is back with their first modern funk compilation featuring such artists Dee Nasty, Modogsta, Funkmaster Ozone, Parisian Soul, Lord Funk, SNS, Djazzafonk, Will The Funk Boss. This is their 13th release and it serves as the real nice & solid addition to their catalogue.
This compilation was pressed on vinyl as an edition limited to 250 copies. It’s just been released & is already available for buying on DISCOGS,contact the label at their FACEBOOK for a copy or grab it @ BETINOS ONLINE SHOP.
“Star Child” is the reissue of his very successful album that he released in 2013. While the first press had a discobag cover, this new press is better quality sleeve with a 3mm border. And if you order on Dogg Master Bandcamp, then he additionally offer the CD album (Original 2103 press) and the digital download as cool bonuses. And on this reissue B4 track “Supa Dupa Guy” was replaced with “Love The Way You Dance” so all the above mentioned differences and dope bonuses justify the purchase very well even if you have the original 2013 vinyl press in your collection! Release date is June 15th but the vinyls are in stock and ready to ship against orders…
“Delicious” is 2nd single off Dogg Master’s upcoming album to be released some time during this autumn so you have another track (along with its instrumental) to taste and get ready yourself more for his next album. This time it’s a blue vinyl also placed in a transparent PVC sleeve with a sticker on it. Once again (as it was the case with O.C.Girl 7″), it’s Limited edition of 300 copies so these won’t last long but would be sold out pretty fast, so hurry up and go to Dogg Master Official Bandcamp for your copy. Pre-orders have been opened by now and these 7″ records are expected in stock some time end June or early July.
Moniquea has already established herself as one of the foremost female artists in the modern funk scene with her 2014 MoFunk Records debut album “Yes No Maybe”. With her follow-up, she continues exploring and expanding upon the boogie/modern soul sound of her debut, and at the same time, ventures bravely into a new sound inspired by the new wave and synth-pop sounds of the 80’s. Thus, the album title: Blackwavefunk. Executively produced by XL Middleton & Eddy Funkster, the album was mainly produced by the one and only XL Middleton with a little exception of one track “Knew It” which was produced by Turquoise Summers while other two tracks “Why Can’t You See” and “Check Your Sources” were co-produced Eddy Funkster and Moniquea respectively. By all means, this is a great modern funk album which is gonna turn classic after some time.
