“After scouring record shops, markets and the internet for the best music for our sets we became increasingly frustrated at the cost and poor quality of the records that we wanted to play out. Whilst being happy to use digital alternatives in their place, good quality WAVs for some of the more obscure tracks became near impossible to find. So from day one we began to make a list of all the tracks we played out that were unobtainable on vinyl and those we could only have dreamt of playing that it seemed were lost to time. This list became the bedrock for Deptford Northern Soul Club Records, and with the help of Northern fans up and down the UK it grew to the point where we began searching for the rights and the highest quality audio to reissue. We are so excited to begin sharing releases soon. KTF!” Will and Lewis, 2019
DNSCR008 - Willi J & Co. - Boogie With Your Baby / Rare Function - Disco Function
Two super rare and mystery-shrouded party-in-the-house sides from 1976, Willi J Coe’s Cleethorpes anthem ‘Boogie With Your Baby’ was a no-hit wonder that goes for around £100 if you can find a copy on the original short-lived Ki Ki label.
Produced by Willie J Key and arranged by Bob Holmes (Joe Tex/Freddie North/Slim Harpo) it’s a slice of funky party disco, a proper floor shaker! Rare Function’s ‘Disco Function’ was originally on Soul Unlimited in 1976 and fetches around £50 a copy these days.
Sampled by Luke Vibert in more recent times it’s a brass-stabbed party anthem with a nod to Kool And The Gang when they were funky.
