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...

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...

Dayspired – Four by Seven

Sometimes there are tracks that just cut through all the noise. That can be for many reasons, sometimes that can be production, or vocals, sometimes just the sound of something can grab you and wrench you out that commuters dream state and into the fresh air.   Which leads me to Four By Seven by Dayspired.    It's hard to describe Four By Seven. I guess Electronica, but it's certainly a track that covers a lot of bases. Modern Jazz,...

H1 2016 Mix

So, as you know Aapie and I have full time jobs and families, so we do this on the side, when we can. We often talk about doing mixes or summaries of posts we have stuck up but rarely get time to do it. In fact i pretty much did a mix of a few tracks from 2015 that i never got round to finishing. Anyway, i finally pulled my finger out and complete a...

Plantlife – When She Smiles She Lights The Sky (4Hero Remix)

Just a quick one tonight, but when this track came on this morning, it had to go up. It's one of my favourite tracks of all time and one of my favourite remixes.   I have to be honest, I really don't like the original, but 4Hero keep the bare minimum and turn it into a broken beat, jazz house, barnstormer. Honestly, I don't know where to start, it is so awesome from top to...

United Future Organisation – Doopsylalolic

I have to say that I'm a bit all over the place at the moment, when it comes to music. Things have been a bit crazy and so I have a huge backlog of stuff to check out and it's been hard to find the time to blog.   Anyway, call for sympathy over, I didn't really play much on a pretty harassed journey into work (I had to be on time this morning and so...

Breakwater – Say You Love Me Girl

So as Aapie pointed out yesterday, day to day life can get in the way of us checking stuff out and posting stuff. Some nights I have all the best intentions of sticking something up or checking something out nut I never quite make it. Anyway, enough with the excuses, tonight I am going to go with a classic piece of funk/soul by the mighty Breakwater. I thought one of us may have posted this before...

Jon Lucien – Would You Believe In Me

I am covering for Aapie this week who is on holiday and I was going to have a theme but then thought that might be cheating and that I should really try to put up stuff I have listened to on my commute. I did listen to today's track but I did cheat a bit as I remembered it over the weekend and loaded it up.  Jon Lucien's Would You Believe In Me.  I bumped  into...

Mori Ra – Edit 47

A quick one tonight. I am off to see Morrissey tomorrow night and so was listening to his stuff on the way to work. I’m not going to post something from him, I’m going to post a track I’ve been meaning to for a while. Edit 47 by More Ra.. I posted a lovely edit by Japanese edit maestro Mori Ra before and this is another beauty. A lovely 80s synth edit with jazz flourishes...

Theo Parrish – Life Spice

Well the New Year started with one hell of a week, and it's all I could do over the weekend to catch up with the deluge of great music that's currently out there. However in a midst all of it there was one LP, and one LP only that was always going to get a feature and that was Theo Parrish's new LP American Intelligence which finally saw a digital release on Monday. Really I...
