SO CRATES Mama Danced On Soul Train 7″

WE ARE EXCITED TO PRESENT THE NEXT RELEASE ON THE NORTHSIDE LABEL, COURTESY OF MELBOURNE HIP HOP GROUP SO.CRATES, MADE UP OF BEATMAKER SKOMES & WORDSMITH CAZEAUX.OSLO.

In the late 1970’s Cazeaux O.S.L.O.’s mother contributed to the Brown [read Black is beautiful] American cultural treasure chest by dancing on a television show called Soul Train. This is fresh, truly fly and absolutely cold crush. He made a song about it. That’s the truth.

It was first performed at an instore appearance at Northside Records in 2018 which brought the house down and Chris Gill has been hassling the band to release the song ever since. It only seems fitting Northside ended up pressing this gem to wax!

On the A-Side we have the original version in true So.Crates boom-bap soulful fashion, and on the B-Side Skomes digs into his UK Garage roots and ups the tempo for the club! Fresh!

GET DOWN WITH US FOR THE LAUNCH AT THE CURTIN THIS FRIDAY NIGHT!

Australia’s FIRST ever XMAS funk 45! OUT NOW!!!

Australia’s first ever XMAS FUNK 45. In keeping with the classic tradition of rocking the funk over X-MAS we get to release a tribute to James Brown on the 10th Anniversary of his death. The first ever release from KARATE BOOGALOO (The Rhythm Section of the Cactus Channel) is set to scorch your speakers. With a respectful cover of the song that would introduce James and the band the boys make is super funky! Recoded in front of a live crowd this is the bomb!! The b side features an orginial song about giving! Nows the time!!! The tracks pops off on a super fun bass line. Then Hudson stretched out on the drums at the end in a Clyde show of respect. A piece of soulful Australian history. Look forward to more heat from the KB’s soon!

In order to help you feel the Joy Of Giving we will sell them for $14 each or you can get 5 for $50 to help spread XMAS soulful joy. The first 150 will come with a commemorative sleeve. This is a release I am PROUD of….
