Record Kicks: Here's to another 10!

With the incredible statistic of 109 releases from 51 international artists, I'm very happy to wish Record Kicks a very happy 10th anniversary!

Over the past couple of years, I've been as big a flag-waver for the label as anyone and have been fortunate enough to add to my own collection, music from Nick Pride & The Pimptones, The Liberators, Dojo Cuts and The Baker Brothers to name just a few.  Over the past ten years, the Italian-based independent record label has been one of the biggest advocates of contemporary funk music, practically scouring incredible bands from as many corners of the world as it can find them. 

If you're unfamiliar with Record Kicks then we really need to do something about that... Leading the celebrations are two fantastic acts that genuinely delivered brilliance in 2012.  First off is The Third Coast Kings, whose interview we carried out with them will be on this site within a couple of days.  Their new single, potentially the show-stealer from their self-titled debut album, 'Give Me Your Love', can be seen here:

  ... and the act that we very recently featured in an exclusive interview on this site late last year, Hannah Williams & The Tastemakers, who are now prepping their brand new single, a cover version of Barbara Lynn's 'I'm A Good Woman':

It's been an incredible ten years for the label and their uncanny ability to unearth talent in the way they do means - as fans - it's been an incredible ten years for us too.  The Blue-in-Green Sessions would like to toast Record Kicks to another even-more-successful ten!
