Hailing from Norrkoping, the young Swede is widely known for his “dope house” signature, a style that fuses a mixture of 128-bpm house along with ominous sound effects and drops, all combining to create a massive sound you won’t wanna turn off. With “Monument” and “Cleopatra”, The Reef brings that fire and more than satisfies society’s gargantuan appetite for bangers.

A – NO TROUBLE ON THE MOUNTAIN
AA – STEVIE FLARE

Wah Wah 45s are proud to present the brand new single from one-man horn driven funk music machine, The Gene Dudley Group.

Following on from last year’s debut long-player, and a run of gigs and festivals with his band, including touring Europe as Stones Throw artists Myron & E’s new backing band, Gene Dudley returns with a taste of things to come and his first ever vocal offering on 7-inches of wax. Those vocals come courtesy of London singer and erstwhile DJ, the wonderfully monikered Anne Frankenstein, whose contribution to Gene’s canny cover of Richard “Groove” Holmes’ classic No Trouble On The Mountain is something of a floor filler and a rather fitting release in Wah Wah 45s’ fifteenth year, as Holmes’ original was one of the label’s first ever 7-inch releases!

On the flip comes the first real flavour of Gene’s forthcoming sophomore LP, due to drop (on vinyl too!) this November. Stevie Flare is a much more up-tempo and foot friendly affair than previously outings, and has something of a tropical feel courtesy of warm highlife style guitars as well as those trademark Gene Dudley horns.

Look out for the Gene Dudley Group live band playing at a venue near you this autumn, including a special session at London’s Jazz Café on October 24th for none other than BBC 6Music’s funk & soul ambassador, Craig Charles!

L.A. Noire Remixed is the fruit of a partnership with Verve Records that provides a modern take on the music found throughout the world of L.A. Noire. This unique EP is a collection of six jazz standards re-interpreted by some of today’s most acclaimed DJs, producers and remixers, including Dave Sitek, DJ Premier and Truth & Soul.

L.A. Noire Remixed will be available for purchase on iTunes on May 17th.

Back with a bang after the release of their debut album, Hello Kitten on Pedigree Cuts earlier this year. The electro swing, kick-ass Kitten and The Hip are bringing you more head banging pop!

The delectable duo have teamed up with the likes of Skeewiff, Rory Hoy, Vassili Gemini, UnBalanced and Another Fine Day for 5 fabulously ferocious remixes of their lead single ‘Don’t Touch The Kitten’ ….Meow.

With their recent appearances on The X Factor, it’s clear the British public and press can’t get enough of these two. No doubt 2014 and 2015 have big things in store for Miss Kitten and Mr Hip.

The Downtown Rulers Club tips its hat to a vast genealogy of soul music from hard-hitting JB funk, to classic Motown, and more recent neo-soul.

The brainchild of Beto Martínez (guitar) of critically acclaimed Brownout and Grammy Award-winning Grupo Fantasma, and Alex Chávez (vocals and B3 Hammond) - seasoned member of both the Austin and Chicago music scenes - the Downtown Rulers Club’s stripped down approach uniquely colours contemporary soulful grooves with vintage grit and flare.

Their debut EP was recorded by Martínez at his Leche House home studio and highlights his own signature ‘tighten-up’ guitar work, Chavez’s song-writing, and features Greg Gonzalez (bass), Jeremy Bruch (drums) - formerly of What Made Milwaukee Famous - and the powerhouse arrangements of the Grupo Fantasma horn section.

A soulful mix of ballads, throwback grooves, and funk-inspired vamps, the EP’s four tracks are sure to please the likes of true soul music fans.

Lyrics:

“We know nothing / no one knows what to do It’s a pain/ in it’s the world upside down
One step forward / two steps backwards Nobody knows anything like King Dagobert!
It makes us crazy / and so we grumble & moan We have all taken / this is the moral of the story Of the world upside down…

1/
24h / connected to the satellite
We punch each other / as we speak on park benches
No more us / no more dosh/ special report in Shanghai —- (in Shanghai) What‘s it says? / That it’s not the end for the Youth?
We know nothing / no one knows what to do
It’s a big pain / in this world upside down
We no longer have the time / finished all good manners! Nobody knows anything like King Dagobert!
It drives us crazy / and so we grumble & moan
We break everything / it’s phenomenal / it’s quite normal isn’t it? In the world upside down…

2/
7/11 / it is not very clear / the is romances / accusations at the house of laws No more party anymore in the marital community
Front page news/ with initial A.S - (A.S)
What’s the latest?
Who is rotten?
Oh…Inconclusive…
!We know nothing / no one knows what to do
It’s a big drag / this world upside down
We step up front / and we hand up in the back
Nobody knows anything just like King Dagobert!
It drives us so crazy / and so we grumble & moan Without virtue / all is unpacked with all the latest scandals Of the world upside down…

3 / From 4 am to midday / I like to wake up / is grey outside
Atmosphere not too bright / so I dream
And I tell myself / it’s a perfect day / nothing more to do … (at least I think so) Because in my bed
It’s the good life!
Life without puzzles!

We know nothing / no one knows what to do It’s a pain / in this world upside down
One step forward / two steps backwards
No one gets it as good as King Dagobert!
It driving us crazy yes/ so we grumble & moan…

All is taken / this is hell
All is hidden / what a farce
Can’t feel up the car / what a cheek!
Soon it’s the deep hole / and the end
Where we’ll ‘relax’ like King Dagobert … with no more worlds upside down!”
