Forgotten Treasure: Carly Simon “Why”

Forgotten Treasure: Carly Simon “Why” (1981)

What I love about our Forgotten Treasures section is that we pretty much make up the rules. Mainly, it doesn’t have to be about uber rare shit. We’re not trying to impress you all the time with our crazy knowledge o...

Forgotten Treasure: KLYMAXX “Don’t Hide Your Love” (1982)

You could say Klymaxx was ahead of its time. The all-female band was brandishing the girl power ideology a decade before the onset of riotgrrl or the appearance of leather-clad starlets like Avril Lavigne. They released albums ...

Future Classic: Funkineven & Fatima “Phoneline”

It’s no secret to anyone that we are huge fans of pretty much anything that comes out of the EGLO Records catalog. I played with label boss Alexander Nut last year, an amazing DJ and just great tastemaker in general and a...

Forgotten Treasure: Midnight Express “Danger Zone”

Forgotten Treasure: Midnight Express “Danger Zone” (1983)

Sometimes it’s just better to let a record speak for itself..or in this case the totally whacked out video for this boogie bomb. Tri-Fire records have made a slick 12” reissue so that everyone can enjoy 80′s f...

Future Classic: Toro Y Moi + Tyler The Creator “Hey You”

Future Classic: Toro Y Moi + Tyler The Creator “Hey You”

When we heard that Tyler and Toro Y Moi were doing studio sessions it definitely got our attention. Just wasn’t a pair of dudes we were expecting to work with but it does make perfect sense when you think about it a littl...

Forgotten Treasure : Diane Tell “En pleurer ou en rire”

Forgotten Treasure : Diane Tell “En pleurer ou en rire” (1977)

Producers of soulful and funky musique Québecoise during the late 70s and early 80s weren’t so numerous. I’m thinking of the duo JF William & Serge Laporte known as Bill, Georges Thurston also known as Boule N...

Forgotten Treasure: Spontaneous Overthrow “All About Money”

Forgotten Treasure: Spontaneous Overthrow “All About Money” (1984)

Pretty much the definition of what a forgotten treasure is right here! Very odd yet beautiful slice of synthesized experimental soul music from a group called Spontaneous Overthrow. Nathaniel Woolridge and Anthony Freeman, two ...

Forgotten Treasure: Max Berlin “Elle et moi”

Forgotten Treasure: Max Berlin “Elle et moi”

This is some serious sleazy disco action right here, straight out of Belgium from the gloriously cheesy 80′s. I discovered this record not that long ago and after about 5 seconds I was in love with it. Really simple, mini...

Forgotten Treasure: Sun Palace “Rude Movements”

Forgotten Treasure: Sun Palace “Rude Movements” (1983)

This might win an award for one of the best B-Sides ever. “Rude Movements” is the B-Side to a single called “Winning” by Sun Palace who only put out this single under that production name. It was a huge ...

Sparkz “Jacques de la Jungle” (Sparkz resync)

Sparkz “Jacques de la Jungle” (Sparkz resync)

Very nice little re-edit from the Montreal homie Sparkz. He’s a very quiet dude but the guy has one of the best batting averages out there. Average meaning, the number of stuff he sends me of his VS the number that I like...

Forgotten Treasure: The Whispers “Keep On Loving Me”

Forgotten Treasure: The Whispers “Keep On Loving Me” (1983)

I was racking my brain to find a “forgotten treasure” gem to share with you all and I remembered a bunch of cool stuff played by the homie Lefto last night in Montreal, as expected goodies from left and right, new a...
