Stranger To Happiness - Sharon Jones - Daptone

After the shock of a cancer diagnosis (apparently caught very early according to doctors) revealed at the tail-end of last year, which resulted in cancelled tour dates and a delayed album release, it’s perhaps a bit of a surprise to see this single released right now. Yet another anthemic soul belter, this only bodes well for this modern day queen of soul. Prayers to you Miss Jones. 

The Dubkinetik EP - Madd-Inc vs Sax3 ft Papa Levi & Daddy Colonel - Sub Slayers

Hardcore legend Lennie De Ice and Kool FM's Madd-Inc come together with a couple of vintage ragga chatterers - Papa Levi and Daddy Colonel - for a dubwise juddering growly bashy original that contains all the elements to make it ripe for some Sub Slayers mainstays to overhaul. Liondub turns it 175bpm jump-up jungle, while King Yoof takes it into the realms of 140bpm future jungle with his trademark steely beats and reggae stylings. Leading d&b figure DJ Rap, no less, turns in a slightly out-of-sorts electro-dubstep revamp, and Madd-Inc himself ruffs it up into deebee too. Killah!

Utopia (The I-Robots Reconstructions) - Giorgio Moroder vs I-Robots - Deeplay Digital

Giorgio Moroder had quite a year, with the Daft Punk link up and finally finding himself behind some DJ decks in his Seventies. Here's something from THE Seventies, worked up by Opilec Music boss I-Robots. The track was originally included in a partially mixed album in 1977 and here are newly extended versions. '1977 Reconstruction' is simply the original extended to almost 7 minutes, '2014 Tape Reconstruction' brings things up to date with beefier production.

Exodus - Johnny Yono - Lange Recordings

One of those tracks that lies in wait, doing not very much at all, before clocking you over the back of the head with one huge moment. When it comes, it's more than worth the wait.
