Various Artists – Loving Mighty Fire Nippon Funk Soul and Disco 1973-1983

Compilation of Japanese funk, soul and disco for Ace Records offshoot BGP International. From mavericks like Haruomi Hosono of the Yellow Magic Orchestra, with his low-down proto-disco groove, to soul singer Minako Yoshida belting it out on the epic title track; jazz vocalist Yasuko Agawa (of LA Nights fame) sweetly covers Roberta Flack, while Memphis soul group Ebonee Webb, funk up a Japanese folk tune, and that’s just for starters. This compilation shows that Japan not only voraciously consumed soul and its offshoot genres, but – unknown to the rest of the world – it carved out its own sound too. Comes with original sleeves and label artwork, and voluminous sleeve notes.

Darshan Jesrani – Mirror Test

“Mirror Test” conjures that rare mood between darkness and elation, contemplation and celebration, and drives it home with an infectious, jacking rhythm section which recalls the late-80s NY club music of Boyd Jarvis and Paul Simpson, and labels like Easy Street and Fourth Floor, but imbues the sound with a toughness and precision only possible today. Analog synth figures, glassy and angular, ricochet around the track, trading jabs with funky snare work and robotic, stabby chord patterns to create a hook-laden machine groove which demands repeated listening.
The record’s B-side feature, “Replace Yourself,” is the subtler, dreamier, more futuristic of the two. Unmistakably urban with its swinging, bottom-heavy groove and strange, architectural chord work, it seduces and transports. “Replace Yourself” dares you to do exactly that.
