Playing tracks by
Direct Flight, Marc Mac, LUCIANO, Bazeado, Ian O'Brien and more.
So this was a mix I created for the arrival of Spring (back in 2007 when I was living in Melbourne - thanks Simon Bajada). I thought it would have some relevance to those living in the Northern Hemisphere (where's it's just about to break into that magical season!)
Although the mix isn't as 'technical' as I would have liked, the vibe is there, and includes some personal favs:
- Da Lata's remix of Luciano's 'life' (an all time favourite of mine)
- Ian O'brien's 'Natural Knowledge' (sampling one of my favourite funky drummers Billy Cobham), a crazy future jazz epic - the tune's timing revolves round a 10-10-10-8 bar sequence! but still works for the dancefloor!
- Spiritual South's huge Jazz Room re-work from the mid 2000s
- & one of my favourite artists/producer/arranger and keys players (who I got to meet in 2010) Jazztronik (Ryota Nozaki) with none other than Flora Purim blessing the track!.......this mix is a very clear representation of the Cutucada nights/sound....enjoy
