Jumping The Gap Show 29 Aug 2012
With all mic-break chatter removed, this 60 minute excerpt from the last show of winter straddles everything from Germaican punk-opera by queen of the head-hammer Nina Hagen, to Japanese obscurities - including an unnamed vocalist scatting her way thru a Herbie Hancock classic (which we lifted from DJ Hatamoto's 'JAP's' collection - sorry, I'm still to upload his fantastic mix from a previous show). In the middle I mixed up a few other recent additions to the collection, including edits from the latest Black Aroma EP on Blend It, some Earth, Wind and Fire, Johnnie Taylor, Blue Magoos & The Conti Family whose Lil' Bongo Boy adds more rhythmic breakdowns to a mix that's fairly heavy on percussive elements. Skanking in at the end is one of two standouts from the newly released Easy Star All-Stars 'Thrillah' album which re-versions Michael Jackson's synchronised zombie-dancing classic LP tune-for tune. Hope you're weekend's a goodie. Ciao4now - Paris
