In September 2007 the second 7″ record, with Dutch Soul singing sensation Jimi Bellmartin was released. Jimi stormed the charts in the early 1970’s with funky songs like ‘So Fine’ and ‘Moviestar’, and even held the no.1 position in Latin America for several weeks. During the past few decades he has toured with people like Eric Burdon, Percy Sledge and Lou Rawls.

The groove here is nearly all modern deep funk — of the Quantic, Daptone, Truth & Soul, and Tramp Records variety — served up with just a bit of the modder touches that used to grace Record Kicks in years back, but which have now mostly been replaced by grittier tunes that are very much in the best tradition of the JBs or The Meters!
