Woods Empire “Universal Love” (1981, Tabu Records)

I found this record at People’s Records in Detroit in 2012, not knowing what it was, but just loving the awesome, spaced out cover. I later realized luck had struck me, and I came home with a beautiful modern soul, rare groove gem. Woods Empire, based out of the serene …

Forgotten Treasure: Jeff Floyd “Don’t Leave Me” (1984)

This one is for all the Boogie Funk heads and collectors. A track that routinely fetches selling prices around three and sometimes four figures. I think one auction just closed at over 2,000$ on Ebay recently. In this case the hype is well deserved because: a) the track is very rare …

Forgotten Treasure: Lisa Lisa and Cult Jam & Full Force “I Wonder If I Take You Home” (1985)

I’ve been telling anyone who will listen that Latin Freestyle is due for a re-evaluation. With the sci-fi electro of Cybotron, Hashim and Man Parrish explicitly informing a lot of today’s most interesting dance music production—its wiggly synths and mechanized funk percussion creeping into the Night Slugs camp’s output, among …
