Jumping The Gap 23 Mar 2016
Leaping the great ponds between South America & Africa, the US and Europe, today there were fresh remixes by Terry Laird of St Germain's latest offering and Patchworks & Voilaaa of new French disco-tropical project Magic Source. Edits too of funksters James Brown, Roy Lee Johnson & Earth Wind and Fire, as well as Spanish gypsy psych-funk flashbacks and a fantastic new druggy rethink of Smokey Rombinson's 'Theme From Big Time' on the Whiskey Disco label from the new-to-me producer, Rulefinn.
If it's 80s boogie, hip hop, Brasilian & Afro you're after, it's all here, plus a new ska-infected outing on the Record Kicks label from The Tibbs. Talking ska, The Selecter were playing Sydney later this night. Kind of bummed I couldn't get there (but really what better excuse than seeing Kamasi Washington instead for his debut Sydney show... which was great) so we aired a few 2-Tone tunes from Pauline Black & band towards the end.
Happy listening - Paris
