Jumping The Gap Show Flashback
Uno... dos... tres... Let's Go!
A show dug up from the archives today, which didn't make it to Mixcloud last year. Dusted off and with all microphone breaks now removed for talk-free grooving, it kicks off with percussionist superhero Willie Bobo and a Latin Brothers LP from Colombia's oldest record label, Discos Fuentos. Before long we're right up to date with fiery edits from the Killer Funk, Tremendo & Resense labels as everyone from Santana to Tom Jones get tassel-teasing, hip-shaking make overs. Hold on to your underwear! We also got stuck into a Lord Echo release towards the end, which means you get to hear what happens when a Kiwi producer has the surprising "black seed" of an idea to cover Sister Sledge. The result is pretty terrific. See, we're always "thinking of you". Happy listening... Paris
