Streetlight Records

Following the hugely popular first 'Acid Jazz (Not Jazz)' release in 2022, label-heads Eddie Piller and Dean Rudland return with a second volume - We've Got A Funky Beat. The record further takes in the club sounds of the original acid jazz scene in the early '90s, where obscure funk, soul and rock records were mixed with new productions that turned up at the Acid Jazz (then- Denmark Street) offices on a near-daily basis. A document of an era, before the internet, where clubs and record stores informed the tastes and direction of the burgeoning London music community, and close-knit groups of producers, musicians, label and shop owners that were constant companions in search of the new sound. Ballistic Brothers and X-Press 2 appear alongside unsung heroes such as Night Trains and The Hightower Set, all presented in a beautiful geometric graphic sleeve, with a printed inner sleeve documenting the original release designs.
