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...

Syl Johnson – Is it because I’m Black (David August Live Reconstruction)

Posting a couple of days late as it's my birthday and I have been buys. As it is my birthday I have decided I'm going to post whatever the hell I want, and what I want to post is David Augusts awesome rework of Syl Johnson's classic 70's ode to empowerment "Is it because i'm black".   Call it a reconstruction, call it a remix, or call it a re-edit the fact is it thumps...

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...

Tiaan – Devils Touch

Sometimes you need to indulge in some guilty pleasure, and todays choice, Devils Touch, is just such a track.   Don't really know much about Tiaan, other than she's form Australia and daughter of Doug Williams and in truth Devils Touch passed me by at the time picking it up a fair while after it broke the charts. But it's a wonderful electronic-tinged scando-pop song, reminding me a lot of artitsts such as Aluna George and the whole Naked Music sound and in...

Kon – Awe Baby (Medlar Remix)

It's been wonderfully hot this past weekend, like 37° hot, and clear and dry and basically wonderful, so I've been chilling out around the pool with some pretty mellow tunes over the last few days, top pick of which is the wonderfully brilliant Medlar remix of Kon's "Awe Baby" on BBE.   If you've heard the original from Kon's 2013 LP "On my Way" the remix will be familiar but different enough it worth while. Taking the bulk...

Free n Losh – Runnin

Posts have been a bit sporadic over the last couple of weeks due to sheer business and travel. I have been fully missing in action so it's good to throw something up.   and it will be a quick one tonight, a track we got sent quite a while back, but a track that I have been playing a lot recently as I sit in traffic, under the beautiful  sunny weather we are experiencing in...

Merry Clayton – Southern Man (Scrimshire Edit)

I do love a cheeky cover version, especially when someone takes a version of a classic and absolutely owns it, as is the case with this awesome Merry Clayton version of the Neil Young favourite Southern Man.   The story behind Southern Man should be well known, briefly it's a commentary on the racism of the US’s Southern States. As Neil young tracks go it's pretty darn funky, but the Merry Clayton version turns the...

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...
