Gupsy Aujla

title:: AfterShock
label:: Xplosive Soundz

Gupsy Aujla is a 25 year old bhangra artist. AfterShock is his second album, following up the LP Out of Nowhere.

The music shares community with such artists as Bikram Singh and the Scottish duo Tigerstyle.

Cannibal and the Headhunters

title:: Land of 1000 Dances
label:: Vampisoul

Varese Sarabande and Vampisoul have been battling it out, documenting the Latino sound of East LA from the 1960s, and this Cannibal & the Headhunters collection is no different.

In fact, it looks like both labels reissued the exact same disc with different cd titles, but the same songs, and even the same bonus tracks.

Boris Gardiner

title:: A Soulful Experience Is Happening
label:: Vampisoul

Boris Gardiner was a member of Lee "Scratch" Perry's band, The Upsetters (you can hear Boris Gardiner playing on Junior Murvin's Police & Thieves).

A Soulful Experience Is Happening on Vampisoul features his first two solo albums, A Soulful Experience & What's Happening, both released in 1970.

Saint Etienne

title:: Dance Remixes Volume 1
label:: Savoy Jazz

Dance Remixes Volume 1 is a nifty US released EP with 7 mixes of the song Stars Above Us from the record Tales From Turnpike House.

The song was well-chosen as a remix track, as it is a disco-fied stomper that is completely bouyant and upbeat.
