"The super rarity disco funk Something Got A Hold On Me by Chuck Armstrong gets its first ever official reissue, as Emotional Rescue continues its series of looking at some of the artists working with King Sporty°«s Konduko label. A long time South Florida native, Armstrong released numerous gospel toned soul 7°…s for labels across the US, starting in 1962 with Cleveland°«s Gemini Records before going on to release with Detroit°«s Black Rock and Nashville°«s Sound Stage 7. First working with Noel Williams on the 1973 single, Black Foxy Woman, before releasing his now sought-after album Shakin°« Up in 1976, he returned to Konduko 3 years later to explore the shift to disco and boogie with William°«s masterly production. Coming in at 10 minutes of deep, bottom rattling disco funk, William°«s teamed Armstrong°«s vocals of hypnotising love with his in-house Root Rockers band to devastating result. Their unrelenting groove and horns, plus Betty Wright & co°«s backing vocals counteracting with William°«s studio skills, is further exemplified in a wonderful dub laden Discomix by Psychemagik. Having released a sneaky edit a few years ago, it seemed fitting to bring the duo of beat diggers, tape manipulators and world travelling DJs, into the °»official°… fold by commissioning a new rework that extends, loops and arranges this classic around a nice heavy dose of dub effects for daze.
