Vulfpeck – Back Pocket

Posts have been a bit thin on the ground between Aapie and I for a number of reasons. Mostly to do with us being old gits with jobs and families (neither of those are bad things by the way and I'm not complaining). additionally, i have been meaning to post this track fooooorrrreevvvvvvvveeeer.   Why? well because it is funky as hell. You have probably heard of Vulfpeck, the American funk/indie band. Their last album got...

Sudden Impact feat Jessica Lauren – Clear Space

Ooh its just going to be a quick one tonight and i am taking it back to the early nineties, just at the death of Acid Jazz and the beginnings of big beat/break beat.   I was working from home today and so was checking out some music. Then my son stole my tablet for a while so i went to vinyl for the first time in quite a while and started playing through some...

Jean Tonique – Un Reve A Deux

Just a quick one tonight but i wanted to pop up this track that has been soundtracking my sun filled journeys to work and my lazy moments by the pool.   The French producer/multi instrumentalist Jean Tonique has been getting a lot of coverage for a while (or so i read) and this track is from 2016 (i think). Whatever, it is fantastic – Aapie and I are suckers for this kind of thing. A...

Parisian Soul – Keep On Dancing

It's been a while since I posted, mainly because I've been flogged at work, and stuck traveling a lot. I literally only got back yesterday form two weeks away so today being my first day off in similar time I decided to catch up on some new music and was promptly gob smacked by the new Parisian Soul 12, and the track Keep on Dancing.   It's about as simple a track as you'll get, a thumping...

Talking Heads – This Must Be The Place (Naive Melody)

When I decided to do todays post I had to check back through the archives because i just couldn't believe neither of us had blogged it at any point. Yes, it's a chestnut, but for good reason as it might just be one of the best songs ever written (actually no might about it – it is). It's certainly a point where Fourbearsjr and myself's musical taste really first converged, as kids we both listened to...

TM Juke & The Jack Baker Trio – Put Your Hands Up For Detroit

Absolute blast from the past here in TM Juke & The Jack Baker Trio funked up cover version of Put Your Hands Up For Detroit by Fedde Le Grand and it's pretty much exactly what you think, a super funk version performed by a life band.   I was always a fan of TM Juke ever since i heard "Life, Rainfall" many years ago. That was a very sample heavy track, and it's nice to see how he's...

Sorcerer – Pineapple

You may have noticed we had some issues with the website the last few days, but we're back up and running now, so i'm gonna get in early and start the week off with a cracking piece of feel good disco tinged electronica from Sorcerer, Pineapple.   I've always found sorcerer an interesting artist, the mix of live guitar and electronic production is obviously nothing new and the sound is often lumped in the new Balearic sound but...

Baby Charles – I Bet You Look Good On The Dancefloor

Look, I am going to make this really easy for you. This came on this morning and made me remember how good it is. New funk and funk covers became/are quite common/popular. Some miss, but this just works brilliantly.   obviously it helps that the arctic monkeys original is a truly immense track but it suits funk so well, plus it is done so well. The drums/percussion just fire it along and the vocal is...

Dreamcast & Sasac – Liquid Deep

Just a quick post tonight but I wanted to stick something up as I have been coming across some really lovely stuff which I have been blasting out as I cruise to work (oh yeah).   I actually came across this track while flicking through soundcloud (I think) and to be fair I don't know a huge amount about the artists/label other than the first is from Sweden and the later is Washington DC based PPU. But what...

Booker T & The MG’s – Soul Limbo

They don't create them tunes like this anymore. So, the other day I was driving to work just randomly playing through stuff on the USB stick in my car when todays track came on and it got me thinking.   Maybe it's because I'm older, maybe it's because the internet has demystified finding out what the name of a track is or who it's by, but I can't think of many theme tunes these days where I...
