The Notations – Super People

Having eluded me for a years now, I finally caved in and copped one of these recently.  I just got it in the mail today.  I would consider this a fairly well known funk/soul record that has made it to a few compilations and re-issues not to mention having been sampled by early nineties Hip-Hop duo Channel Live and Big Daddy Kane.

I always though this was either a Curtis Mayfield tune or at the very least one of his productions.  It’s neither apparently, his name doesn’t appear on the record any where.  Gemigo Records was owned by Curtis so im sure he was a huge influence on this song’s sound regardless.  You can always hit the comments with any info you got.

First Touch – Pleasure For Your Treasure

I’ve been keeping this song under my hat for the last little while, but i think these dudes deserve some shine.  It’s a current staple in my dj sets and the whole album is nothing short of “tight”. If you like Dam Funk, and 80’s synth boogie, then First Touch will be right up your alley.  The whole album has been circulating the internet, so with a little effort you should be able to find it.  The self titled full length was offered as a free down load on www.highsteppin.de site but the site seems to be down now.  Google dat!!!
