Jumping The Gap Show 12 Sep 2012
An overdue look at some funky outings on Kay-Dee records today, the label run by Brooklyn's Kenny Dope (Gonzalez) & Scotsman Keb Darge. The pair might share initials (hence the label's name) but whilst Darge is a serial funk-soul-r'n'b-jump-blues nut, Dope spreads himself more widely to cover hip hop & also house/garage with his Masters At Work project . We focused today on Dope's funk remixes on Kay-Dee for everyone from Brass Construction to Gizelle Smith & The Mighty Mocambos. Mixing these up with newies by Oz Village residents Loose Change, to oldies by Tower Of Power & Turley Richards, who reminds us that we live in a beautiful country. The short-lived Posmontier Brothers Quintet rolled out some wiggy jazz-funk, we air recent Funkadelic & Marvin Gaye makeovers, & for a random 'where-did-that-come-from?', Aussie singer Noosha Fox invites us into her cosy bed. Who could resist? Let's all sleep in tomorrow, it's the weekend after all. :-) Paris
