I heart Quantic. The first single of this batch is number 2 of the Marulasoulfood series of the label I work for, with a nice sleeve and a recipe for some great dish on the backside (I’m sorry, haven’t got the sleeve here with me at present so I can’t tell you what dish – I’ll update when I get home, promise Here it is: “Bacalao estilo Pendulo / Pendulo style cod, courtesy of El Pendulo, C/Reloj 16, Madrid) – music and food recipes, what more could a man ask for? The singer is of course Alice Russell, the remix done by Señorlobo, with whom I will be spinning some tunes tonight at the same Marula club we do the Soulfood series with, and the mythical Watch TV.

On the three Flowering Inferno singles good Will Holland, as his mama calls him, is on a tropical reggae tip playing many instruments himself and inviting a string of Caribbean musicians to play with him. The 45s are the only tracks on vinyl off the Death of the Revolution album – on the CD there are four more.

The last single is the second Black Gold single, a series by Tru Thoughts. Quantic and his new project, of which the album Tradition in Transition will be out in July and is absolutely all killa no filla – believe!, delivers a cumbia version of Portishead‘s “Wandering Star”, while Nostalgia 77 hooks up with The Fiction Trio to turn horrible Eminem‘s horrible “My Name Is” into a dope jazz tune. Both tracks are off the Tru Thoughts Covers album, to be released later this year.

As said, tonight Quantic will be spinning at El Sol at the fabulous Lovemonk Fiesta with live gigs by Soul Vigilantes and Speak Low, and at the afterparty at Marula, where we Lovemonkeys will be dropping tunes as well. Consider yourself invited.

7-inch series, part 491 – Open Foraina

Open Foraina &anp; Jack Quiñónez – Fala tanto
label: Lovemonk
year: 2008
side a: Fala tanto
side b: Fala tanto (Instrumental)

7-openforaina-falatanto.jpg

Nice laidback tune from Javier Sirena, a guy from Madrid living in Brazil, and Colombian singer Jack Quiñónez. Jazz-tinged funk with a touch of Latin-American sounds, just the way we like it here at chezlubacov HQ. This is the third installment of the Marulasoulfood series on Lovemonk, a collaboration between the label and the funky little dancehall that is Madrid’s Marula Café.

7-inch series, part 490 – Makala

Makala – Partió la tabla
label: Lovemonk
year: 2008
side a: Partió la tabla
side b: Cartoon Tune
www.myspace.com/djmakala
7-makala-cartunes.jpg

This single isn’t even out yet – boy I’m hip to the bone. Makala appeared on these pages before with his Achilifunk-related releases on the same label. The A-side is a Latin-fueled breakbeat stomper about a surfer who broke his board while the B-side is a, err, cartoonesque cut-n-paste dittie. Which is nice.

7-inch serie, deel 409 – Mantecao Y Su Combo

Mantecao Y Su Combo – Achilifunk Edits
label: Lovemonk
jaar: 2008
kant a: Achilifunk (Blackbeard Edit)
kant b: Achilifunk (Danny Breaks Remix)
www.myspace.com/achilifunk
7-mantecao-achiledits.jpg

Over de Achilifunk-compilatie heb ik al vaker geschreven hier, dus dat ga ik je niet nog eens mee vervelen. Dit is de promoversie van de single die een paar weken geleden officieel is uitgekomen, met twee gepimpte versies van “Achilifunk”. Ze voegen niet verschrikkelijk veel toe aan het origineel, maar het blijft goed.

De enige officiële vinylrelease van Achili Funk mocht deze single zijn, Lovemonk heeft geen toestemming gekregen de hele compilatie uit te brengen op mooie glimmende zwarte plakken. Onbegrijpelijk. Ik vraag me af wat copyrighthouders ertoe beweegt expliciet nee te zeggen tegen een release op vinyl. Het enige argument zou kunnen zijn dat ze de nummers zelf willen uitbrengen, maar dat gaat hier niet op, of in ieder geval voorlopig niet, want dat gebeurt niet. Hel, ze zijn zelfs te beroerd, of liever gezegd, te stom, om de platen van Camarón een heruitgave te geven op vinyl, terwijl ze daar gewoon vet geld mee zouden kunnen verdienen. Want de tweedehandsjes gaan niet voor minder dan dertig euro per stuk van de hand, en daar verdienen ze niks op natuurlijk.

Maar ik dwaal af.

Achili Funk, dusch. Vorig jaar tijdens Sónar zijn we de eerste avond naar de officiële presentatie van de verzamelaar gegaan. Hij vond plaats in de KGB, een discotheek die ik regelmatig bezocht tijdens mijn eerste tour of duty in Barcelona, weg terug in 1989. Toen was het een soort new wave-tent, en te oordelen naar het nog altijd niet veranderde interieur is het dat nog altijd, dacht ik. Vreemd dus om daar naar rumba catalana te luisteren, maar het was zo – tegenwoordig is er zelfs een wekelijkse rumba-avond. Mantecao trad op, en ook Los Fulanos met Peret zelve (in deze contreien vooral bekend van zijn hit “Borriquito” en zijn deelname aan het Eurovisie Songfestival van 1974 (met “Canta y sé feliz”, ABBA won dat jaar met “Waterloo”), en Txarly Brown deed de plaatjes. Geweldige avond, ondanks het feit dat je vijf euro moest betalen voor een biertje. Dat is dan weer wél veranderd in KGB.

Mantecao’s “Achili Funk” is zelf ook een bewerking, en wel van het in 1969 in Spanje zeer populaire “Achilipú” van Dolores Vargas “La Terremoto”. Hoewel het ook is opgenomen door vele van haar collega’s, zoals Lola Flores en de fantastische Las Grecas.
