Precious musical legacies may not be forgotten. Therefore, ReGrooved makes sure that one-of-a-kind records receive a well-deserved re-release. God’s Prescriptions, Camille Doughty’s sole solo effort, is a prime example of a soul/gospel album that earns the right to be heard, time and time again.
Born in mid-January 1944, Camille Doughty the singer proved to be gifted at age 10 when she joined the Green Spiritual Singers and performed with them throughout her home state, Ohio. At 12, she was six years shy of the minimum 18 years age limit to join the Young Adult Choir. However, her extraordinary vocal qualities warranted an exception in her case.
Two years later she was recruited by her uncle, Rev. Shellie R. Doughty Senior into the Inspirational Choir of the Mr. Herman Baptist Church, a renowned ensemble in Doughty’s hometown of Columbus. 1972 marked the year in which Camille finally went solo, urged on by numerous admirers of her singing capabilities. Since then, she has appeared in several concerts, radio programs and television shows in the United States. In many of her appearances, she had the opportunity to perform with celebrated professionals of the gospel genre.
All these efforts culminated in the release of her only solo record, God’s Prescriptions. Released in 1978 on Gospel Roots, it was never reissued... until now!
ReGrooved is proud to present a beautiful, supreme quality remaster of the original album, first released by the Gospel Roots label. It features her famous rendition of the traditional spiritual ‘Elijah Rock’ and several other standards, including ‘I Trust in God’, ‘It Don’t Cost Very Much’ and ‘I Asked the Lord’. Our third release is a wake-up call to those who have been touched by Doughty’s voice back in the day, as well as a beautiful introduction to new fans.

Fabric resident Anna Wall and production partner Corbi link up again for the first time since their debut EP 'DATs In The Attic' dropped on Ritual Poison in 2019. Between then, Anna has gone on to release music on her own label Dream Theory and turned in a gorgeous deep cut for music platform 22 tracks' final send off before closing. Corbi has been no stranger to production either, heading up important label Fina records and releasing stand-out EPs on Rough Recordings & Kouncil Cuts.
The pairing bring their newfound knowledge to LTWHT, shape shifting between colorful displays of breakbeat and melodic perfume. Ahead of the release, Anna & Corbi spoke of their love of digging into the past, delving into old techno and rave records and inspired by artists like LFO. While the influences are apparent their sound remains unique, contemporary and flourishing with personality.
Title track 'Persistence' opens with choppy breakbeats and deep subs, adding extra depth and weight; providing the perfect base for the record's shimmering synth lines. 'Consciousness' then conjures wide-eyed atmospherics, joining hands with a soothing, deep bassline and diamond shaped arpeggio. 'I'm just changing consciousness' is gently spoken as the track ebbs and flows across the oceans moon-lit surface.
Subtly euphoric and inherently introspective, B side opener 'Take A Moment' shows a developing side to the pair's growing sonic palette. Early trance meets breakbeat, in an emotive display of otherworldly electronics and primordial whispers. The tracks bassline and lead add an extra layer of playfulness, turning the track from a cerebral workout to a blissful dance around an open flame. The record comes to a close with 'Regardless' an acid inspired dream that unfolds amongst a backdrop of clouded pads and intoxicating patterns.

Arriving on Cheeky Sneakers and bringing the essence of UK rave with him is UK based producer Ravetrx who deliver four huge cuts of breakbeat, jungle and trance-licked hardcore for the masses.
'Run 'N' Hide' begins with fairly familiar territory for the producer. Sitting somewhere between techno, breaks and speed garage, this peak-time warper is a sure-fire party starter, before 'Show Me' transitions into breakbeat completely; it's deafening bass-kicks, euphoric builds and jungle-percussion providing a throwback to a golden era for dance music.
The familiar chords of the M1 ring out on 'Mind Games' - a classic trance love-cry brimming with emotion - before the 160bpm jungle riddims of 'Shebeen' provide a lairy and screwface-inducing climax.
A1 RAVETRX - Run 'N' Hide
A2 RAVETRX - Show Me
B1 RAVETRX - Mind Games

Club Glow co-founder Denham Audio is no stranger to linking up with friends. Running the label alongside fellow breaksmiths Mani Festo, LMajor and Borai, the rave-focused producer has established the imprint as one of a leading name in acid hooks, lairy basslines and whiplash-inducing breakbeats, and here - on Cheeky Sneakers - he readies the release of five varied cuts of lowend pressure and sky-high euphoria alongside Swankout, Thugwidow and Coco Bryce.
'Good Time' does what it says. A cut of happy-hardcore inspired breaks beamed straight from the Midlands; there is just enough headsy energy to keep the chin-stokers entertained, whilst inspiring an emotional, smiling release for those whose infatuations lie closer to ravey keys and Bangface Weekenders. Swankouts second collaboration - 'Keep On' - is a growling slab of screw-face electro and breaks, highlighting both producers' knack for finding the sweet spot between varying forms of UK music - fast, hardcore and dutty, it's a surefire party starter. Thugwidow is introduced on 'Testing My Patience'; the producer has been making a name for himself with some excellent releases on Sneaker Social Club and Circadian Rhythms, and here he and Denham Audio combine on a chugging steamroller of malfunctioning, soulful riddims.
It's a dreamy meet on 'Close 2 Me' - Coco Bryce recently collaborated with Amy Dabbs on an excellent jungle EP which received support from BBC Radio 1 and more, and here the Netherlands produce brings his native hardcore spirit to the surface on a pitched-vocal cut of jungle-techno.
Seeing out the release is a remix from emerging producer RAVETRX, who has recently enjoyed sessions on Rinse FM and NTS alongside Roni and Hooversound Recordings co-label head Sherelle.
A1 Denham Audio & Swankout - Good Time
A2 Denham Audio & Swankout - Keep On

ABC's 'The Lexicon Of Love' is 40 years old this month and we're thrilled to have frontman Martin Fry on the cover of the new Electronic Sound to mark the occasion. We have a superb ABC seven-inch – pressed on gold vinyl to match Martin's suit – to accompany the issue too.
A glorious mix of intoxicating pop tunes, slick and funky rhythms, head-swirling strings and super-smart lyrics, ‘The Lexicon Of Love’ still sounds great to this day. No wonder the album entered the UK charts at Number One and stayed in the Top 100 for an entire year. Our cover feature tells the inside story of the record, with Martin Fry taking us back to ABC's roots in the underground synth group Vice Versa. His memories of the early 1980s, a period he describes as "a whirlwind", make for a fascinating article. It starts with him recalling the day he stuffed his gold suit down the toilet in a Tokyo hotel...
We have lots more great features inside, including Dubstar, 23 Skidoo, Zombie Zombie, 700 Bliss, Mark Reeder, The Sound Of Science and, most notably, the last-ever UK interview with krautrock pioneer Klaus Schulze. A member of both Tangerine Dream and Ash Ra Tempel but best known for a prolific solo career spanning five decades, Klaus completed a lengthy email interview with our writer Jeremy Allen just a few days before he died in April. "Life has a way of surprising us all," he told Jeremy. "One thing is sure – nothing is sure."
We have something a bit special to accompany this month's magazine too – an exclusive gold vinyl seven-inch offering two superb ABC tracks, neither of which has ever been released in a physical format before. The A-side is the uplifting and extremely catchy 'Look Good Tonite', which Martin describes as "a love song, of sorts". We're certainly talking classic ABC here. The track was issued as a lockdown download on the group's website in 2020, but just for 24 hours. Flip the disc over for the orchestral and gently funky 'Sixty Seconds Later', which is both previously unreleased and previously unheard. We think we might be spoiling you with this record!

At some point in the mid-2000s Madlib got itchy fingers from waiting around to do a second Madvillain record. To keep himself busy he decided to make a bunch of new beats for MF DOOM’s bars from their seminal 2004 LP. Initially conceived for Madlib’s private stash, it turned out that the new joints were just too damn good to gather dust in his attic. Thus have we Madvillainy II: The Madlib Remixes, a generous album that pairs DOOM’s famous flows with another set of fire instrumentals from The Beat Konducta.

Following the success of their sold out inaugural release, Out of Sorts present their second vinyl release, Farr’s Wide Eye.
With Farr’s Bassline Interferometry becoming synonymous with the success of the first release, it only felt right to invite him back for his first full vinyl release, joined by Canadian artist, Ciel, on remix duties. For Wide Eye, the Vienna-based artist sets out on three new dancefloor excursions, each featuring his customary delicate melodies and complex percussion, whilst scouring different corners of the club music continuum.
The release starts with title-track Wide Eye, a deep piece of post-grime club bass which weaves a moody atmosphere between spacious vocals and rattling percussion, wrapped around a menacing acid line which cuts through the space to create a claustrophobic finish.
Reticle is a full-throttle club workout where warped bass, gunshots, rewinds, and rave-tinged vocals are all on the table, nestled amongst relentless percussion which bounces between razor sharp two-step, speed garage and dubstep sequencing. A tool for full dancefloor destruction.
Give Me Shelter takes a step away from the weightier side of things, showcasing how easily Farr’s customary rhythmic programming and sound design can be applied to a myriad of different genres. A delicate melody and deliciously colourful bassline are joined by a hypnotic vocal sample and intricate synth work to create a slice of peak-time euphoria.
Ciel has become known for her musical storytelling, and she rounds off the release in usual style with the Give Me Shelter ‘Safe Harbour’ mix. A cheeky irresistible lead melody and Balearic style percussion coalesce with airy synths to leave a sweet taste in the mouth.
