Jumping The Gap 24 June 2015
French label, Favorite Recordings are just that: a favourite, here at Jumping The Gap. I fell in love with them years ago, but then after a few too many reggae revisions, went through a lull in interest. In recent times their Gallic oddball disco obscurity unearthings + Brasilian boogie treats have reignited my love, so it was great this week to get a promo of a double whammy future 12" from them, especially because it's an original production from in-house producer Bruno "Patchworks" Hovart. His new Afro-Caribbean inspired project, Voilaaa is a corker as you'll hear. It wasn't the only Caribbean sounds we aired, also touching down on the isle of St. Maartens (what's with all the extra "A"s today?). Fittingly we also got amongst some fresh Afrobeat by London's Dele Sosimi, Rio de Janeiro discotheque vibes (also on Favorite) + plenty more.
Today's overall theme? Get Down! And so we cut-up/played word association fro a while.
Turn it up! Paris
