Chantal Curtis – Hit Man

Great hit in the target! Original touch with the jewish harp (love that!). And this chants… (starring the diva Chantal Curtis)

You’d better watch out for the Hit Girl !…
or she will “Get Another Love“, LP released on Keylock Records and produced by Pierre Jaubert in 1979.

You Make Me Feel

SylvesterYou Make Me Feel (Mighty Real)

This song appears on Sylvester James‘ third LP “Step II” produced by Harvey Fuqua and released in 1978 on Fantasy.

That’s a fact: he was a real show man.  R.I.P. (biography)

It must be one of the best soulful disco songs ever!
The anthem! (more…)

Feel Alright

Komiko – Feel Alright (1982)
(Listen to the full track)

Not much to say about this song except it is a groovy thang! Beautiful soul chant, bassline and a few effects full of funkyness produced by Gary R. Turnier (from Gary’s Gang) and the influent Darryl Payne.

Nami Shimada

Nami Shimada was (she retired from singing in 1990) a J-Pop artist and although I’m not fond of that genre, a few tracks she did, like Sun Shower released in 1989, are really more Garage or House than Pop. And they are good.

On a side note, Nami Shimada now appears to be DJing in Japan.

Here’s a quick selection of a few 80s funky tracks you MUST play when you invite me 😀 A common feature is the use of a massive groovy bassline… and sometimes quite a catchy vocal loop.
