MC Cormac – Yes I Will [prod. Zack Young]

I know things have been a bit sporadic of late, but as mentioned elsewhere we've both been on extended breaks for family, holidays and work. We took a decision a while ago to stop posting every day and concentrate on just posting when we really wanted to share something – so for me, today is the day and i'm sharing a quality piece of hip hop from MC Cormac.   Hip Hop is such a debatable...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

Bacao Rhythm & Steel Band – P.I.M.P.

Just a quick one tonight, but i wanted to share a track from one of the albums i have been slaughtering over the summer (i am still on leave by the way so still on the freebie express).    The album 55 by the Bacao Rhythmn & Steel Band has soundtracked a number of BBQs and afternoons by the pool. Its perfect for it considering its an album of funk covers driven by some excellent steel drum...

The Meters – It Ain’t No Use

It's not been a very productive few days, and music hasn't been top  of my to do list, but I grabbed my Nexus this morning and decided it was a day perfect for listening to some funk.   In all honesty we don't really delve into classic funk any where near often enough, but both of us are big fans of groups like the HeadHunters, The JB's, BT Express, Rare Earth, Cameo and today’s choice...

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...
