Scorpio Man

photo: 
a propos: 
A new colossal star rises in the twilight of funky soul jazz as Ernie Hawks releases his debut album "Scorpio Man" on Timmion Records. The impressive trombonist/flutist, is known to hold no punches, when performing live in the ranks of The Soul Investigators. Here he delivers a fierce selection of S.O.U.L. and Cymande flavored instrumentals that also bring to mind some of the finest sample-fodder library music.The album's name, "Scorpio Man" might come from the stinging and slightly intimidating style Hawks handles the trombone slide, known to pierce the hearts and souls of the ladies in the front row during his live performances. On this album, Ernie rides to battle equipped only with the flute, but this does not mean we will be exposed to some smooth jazz snooze fest. Rather Ernie handles his instrument with muscular rawness at times and moody ambiance at others, sliding with ease into any groove that the extended Soul Investigators band lays down."Scorpio Man" is no one trick pony, and the listener will be shifted around from the exhilarating psych funk of "Scorpio Walk" all the way to the airy moods of "Street of Tears". Take a chance with the Scorpio Man, his sting will give you a funky high much better than what they sell in the streets.

Going In Circles

photo: 
a propos: 
Starting from where the "Cold Game" LP left us, the new album offering from Myron & E and the Soul Investigators finishes the saga of this Finnish-American marriage of soulful ecstasy. "Going In Circles" picks the rest of the tracks from the Stones Throw released "Broadway" from last year in the form of previously unreleased extended mixes, adds a 7" only track, as well as a brand new soul stomper."Dangerous" has only been available on a limited 45 from Stones Throw, and can now be heard in its full extended studio cut glory. Also featured is the "They Don't Know" original mix, which was just recently put out by Timmion on a 7". Same goes for the dance soul of "Behind Closed Doors", which hasn't been available in album form before, and is just getting its first 7" release.If we lay these past vinyl release issues aside, "Going In Circles" is once more an album to heard in its entirety. Packaged in a glorious pasted back sleeve, it will compliment any vinyl collection. If somebody is thinking about buying their first soul album, they might as well get going with this.It’s time to take another look at Myron & E, the duo of soul brothers from California, whose debut album “Broadway” was released by Stones Throw Records during the summer of 2013. “Going In Circles” is the second in a series of two Myron & E albums, which will be released by Timmion Records. It features tracks from the first album, an early single cut with The Soul Investigators, and a fresh new instrumental to groove on.The album sleeve has a photo of Myron Glasper and Eric Boss sitting on an iceberg, in Helsinki in the Spring of 2009. This iceberg was a monument to the heavy snowfalls Finland received during the winter, still standing months later, and providing an ideal stage to shoot some cold game. This is the true tone Timmion wants to paint with its private alternate pressings of the music The Soul Investigators recorded with Myron & E from the year 2007 to 2012.Some of the music The Soul Investigators play might sound cheery at first, but deep inside beats a heart full of authentic Finnish melancholy, reflecting the finest escapist moods of classic American soul. Myron & E reach the music potently and complementing this brand of unpolished soul to the fullest.Timmon Records in Helsinki, Finland - the home of Myron & E's band & collaborators The Soul Investigators - have released their own custom versions of the Myron & E recordings, cut right at home in the Timmion Cutting Laboratory. The two LPs - Cold Game and Going in Circles - are strictly limited edition vinyl releases, packaged with old school thick cardboard sleeve and "tip-on" cover. Going in Circles LP contains the full, original versions three tracks from Myron & E's Broadway (the U.S. release on Stones Throw) and four others which aren't on the U.S. release.

TDJ

photo: 
a propos: 
Amazing debut album, following on various now in-demand 12's where deep house, touching techno, acid, r&b and jazz all come together. 500 numbered copies. Huge tip! Having earned a solid reputation via well-regarded EPs on Delsin and HPTY, Finnish mystery man Trevor Deep Jr returns to the latter to deliver a debut album some four years in the making. Seemingly inspired by the twin attractions of early Chicago deep house and the stargazing futurism of Detroit, the limited, hand-numbered TDJ is packed with melodious, analogue-rich workouts. While the A-side sticks largely to his usual deep house fare, he successfully mixes things up a little on the flip. Check, for example, the dub house/deep techno fusion of King Sporty hook-up "Nina Dub", the sweet, lilting, live nu-jazz of "Roba Rouge", and the yearning downtempo soul of "Let You End", featuring the luscious vocals of Niko Marks.

Plays... Soul Groove

photo: 
a propos: 
BACK IN STOCK !!!Happiness is something you either have or don't at any point in time. Looking at the grim line-up of the Finnish old-school graveyard creeping funksters, The Soul Investigators, one would assume these times might be at short supply. That or the album title of the latest Nicole Willis LP would be at least a tad ironic. When the needle drops on the instrumental version of the "Happiness In Every Style" album, these preconceptions melt right away. The opening guitar riff of "One In a Million" sinks the listener straight to the fuzzy warmths of joyful instrumentals not far from the best offerings of The TSU Toronadoes. Darker shades of soul are naturally explored as well in tunes such as "Bad Viberations" and "Vulture's Prayer", where Jimi Tenor takes to his axe of choice, the flute. Things are finished with the hypnotic balearic disco of "Hot Sauce", now also available on Timmion's first 12" single. Letting these compositions breathe without vocals is a luxury, which can be afforded by anyone with a lust for vinyl and a few coins to spend. As usual, the package comes in a thick deluxe tip-on sleeve. The small vinyl only pressing runs out quickly so we encourage jumping on it with haste. Comes in heavy tip-on sleeve!

Hot Sauce

photo: 
a propos: 
Food and funk music have a strange connection, which is hard to describe, and even if tried, probably delivers somewhat messy and unappetizing results. There are plenty of 70's funk LP sleeves that can be referenced for evidence.With all this in mind Timmion offers its very first 12" single lifted from the upcoming "Happiness In Every Style" album by Nicole Willis. The track features Nicole rapping her way through a highly funky potage. She promises home cooking, biscuits and everything else for anyone listening, peach cobbler for dessert to top things off. It is certain that when hearing this call, one can do nothing else but jump straight to the dancefloor.Those who want to skip the main-course and head straight for the dessert, can flip the disc over, and be exposed to the hypnotic balearic-funk business that just kills things for 6 and a half minutes. A bit like Isaac Hayes and Barry White originally meant it to be done, but à la mode by the The Soul Investigators. The instrumental deserves to be pimped for across-the-board appraisal.

Happiness In Every Style

photo: 
a propos: 
This Autumn, Nicole Willis rolls out with her third album made together with The Soul Investigators "Happiness In Every Style". It is bound to send shivers through backs all around the world. As the name suggests, the new album will offer variety and tilt towards a more positive note after the murky "Tortured Soul" from two years back.This means Nicole and the boys have made things a bit more soothing for the listener, offering upbeat modern soul and even embrace more sophisticated melodies alongside their highly evolved raw funk sound. To get a taste of this, one only has to put on "Let's Communicate" or "One In a Million" to have their hands clapping and toes tapping in no time, or respectively, witness the dance floor explode. From minor key ballads such as "Thief In The Night" to the unapologetically poppy "Angel", the new album is bound to bring to the hearts of humans in every shade and style.Whether you know Nicole Willis from before or not does not hold any weight here. After hearing her with The Soul Investigators on this new album, you will know they are for real, and out to offer you everything you need to fill up your soul supply. With Nicole's insightful lyrics and the band's hard-hitting music you are in good care.LP comes with tip-on old school style cover and MP3 download card !
