Following on from the phenomenal success of the recent Italo House and Remixed With Love compilations ZR returns with another humdinger of a compilation to start of 2015.
Supafunkanova Volume 2 has been selected by Joey Negro and Sean P who together have compiled many previous albums including "Disco (Not Disco)", Destination Boogie and the ever-popular Soul of Disco series. The dynamic duo continue to dig deep, compiling high quality albums filled with lesser known disco and boogie. As the title suggests, Supafunkanova focuses on the funkier end of the 70s & 80s, showcasing some of the bumpier grooves recorded in the disco era when even James Brown had to take notice of the Saturday Night Fever inspired disco explosion. It will come as no surprise to hear some particularly hard to find gems have been unearthed here, and ones that aren't just rare but genuinely merit being re-issued.
We've been working on Volume Two for some time now as the first instalment was released way back in 2007. It takes a while to put these albums together, tracking down the owners of these musical gems, finding the right image for the sleeve but it's finally come together. Once again ZR give outstanding value with 20 tracks spread across a Double CD with highlights including the boogie synth infused Airplay "Drive Me Crazy" and the "White Horse"-ish "Cool Out' by Magnum Force. Things get more DC GoGo style on "Super Stimulus" by Stimulus, ex Skullsnap Sam Culley gives us the uptempo jazz funky "Walk", whilst the soulful Teena Marie-ish Sound Reason" by Splash gets an exclusive Joey Negro edit.
