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...

Voluntary Butler Scheme – Trading Things In.

I thought I would end the week with a bit of fun and maybe try to give you a song that will be stuck in your head for the weekend and beyond.   I'm sure I have mentioned before that I am a sucker for the 2 minute or so pop/indie song and tonight's track just about makes it in at 2.33. But it certainly passes the catchy as hell criteria. I was put on...

Sun Kil Moon – Neverending Math Equation

So it's going to be a short one tonight as I have covered mark kozelek/sun kil moon before and he is well known to most. I am a big fan of his work and I have been meaning to stick this track up for forever so when it came on today I did.   the weather in malta is really getting great now, beautiful, warm sunshine in the morning as I cruise to work and...

RJD2 – 1976

I've been revisiting RJD2's "Since we last Spoke" over the last few days and decided to throw up 1976 from that album.   I remember when the album first dropped, I was confused the album got absolutely slated but i completely loved it, and in some places more than the mighty Deadringer – I think most people expected RJ to head back to Deadringer territory but he flexed his creative muscles and delivered a really varied album that took in...

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...

The Handroidz – Vanguard

To coin one of Fourbearjrs favourite phrases, tonight is going to be a quick one, and i'm just going to opt for a track that has long long been a favourite of mine, The Handroidz – Vanguard. Vanguard as a track is one of those occasion where so many elements from different genres come together and it came at a time when the slo-motion electronica/deep house sound was still in it's embryonic stage. Down around the 94bpm range it's...

Ice Cube – Endangered Species (Tales from the Darkside)

Ok, so I'm going to keep with the theme Fourbearsjr started yesterday and go for a track that is as apt today as it was when it first came out, all the way back in 1990, Ice Cube –  Endangered Species (Tales from the Darkside).   The whole album is absolutely amazing, to this day it sounds as fresh as back then. The day I heard it it had the exact same impact on me as Straight...

Charly Brown – The Twilight Zone

Well seeing as I started the week with a throwback, i'm taking the easy option and sticking with it and going for another classic in Charly Brown – The Twiglight Zone.   The Twiglight Zone is one of those tracks, it landed at a time (1997) when Acid Jazz and similar was just starting to break into new directions and it's funked laced loopy grooves absolutely hit home with the jazz scene crowds as much as it...

King Roc – Welcome To Zion

First up, apologies for the tardiness of late – I've (literally) spent the last two weeks on planes or in places with sod all wifi (at least wifi capable of staying on long enough for me to post), so massive thanks to Fourbears for covering when he had better things to do. The New Year should see things settle down somewhat and a return to more regular postings.   Anyway, this week i'm again on...
