We have a sprawling catalog (3000 active skus at any time) and it’s easy for things to get lost in the shuffle. I’m starting a new feature that highlights some of these lost items that you should own. Many of these titles probably won’t be restocked after this. Here’s a few write-ups, but view the whole selection here.

A Snack pick. This Roy Ayers production is sneaky boogie killer and a rare find in the Uno Melodica original. Much different than her work on Blue Note… she sings on this (but also brings the fonky flute in the breakdown).
This Timmy Thomas edit was featured Still Music’s edit imprint Stilove4music back in 08. Chicago mainstay Rahaan pays excellent homage to this groundbreaking drum machine track, raising the umpfh levels for DJ play. His edit of The Flirts “Calling All Boys” on the same record is pretty epic too. Checkout all of Rahaan’s titles at the Lab.
I take for granted that everyone knows how incredible this record is. Peanut Butter Wolf originally put us onto “Spread Love” in his Record Check, while J-Rocc showed us how to use Brazilian Rhyme correctly. Even the Roc can’t say anything bad about this record. Truly timeless.
Another Snack selection. As musical prejudices slide off in this melded world, you really start to appreciate the masters. Nile Rodgers & Bernard Wright are definitely up there, constructing seamless magic like this. Sidenote: Snack just told me Nile Rodgers (who is responsible for countless hits including Bowie’s “Let’s Dance” and “Like A Virgin”) also did DJ nerdus favorite and Lab bestsller “Why” by Carly Simon.
