[MPFree] Jimi Needles - Classic Revisits
> A bundle of FOUR Ghetto-Funky reworks, of which Swing Da Club is da stand out swinger, er, winner.
Still, any of these bangers can and should be used as secret dance floor bombs to make ‘people jump around’ as per Jimi’s orders. Needless to say, these go straight into the DJ playlist.
The name gives a lot away here - a mix of the world’s funkiest drummers - 100 or so of Funk, Soul, Rock & Jazz’s finest breakbeats and licks in a 20 minute mix!
‘Santafly’ by Martin Mull with The Sondra Baskin Glee Club
The best thing about christmas this year? A new compilation from #Tramp with awesome christmas songs. Funk, Soul, Jazz, its all there!
Nostalgia77’s music speaks to me; it is really good, the dusty jazz groove is strong. The songs also challenge me; this is by no means easy listening. Accessible enough to draw you in the first few bars, and then demanding full attention to really perceive and appreciate it. This music is not something to put on in the background while doing work or social activities. If you are stubborn and do use it as a backdrop, be aware that you won’t get the full experience out of it.
The new LP ‘A Journey Too Far’ will feature more of the awesome quirky singer Josa Peit who also featured on the last N77 album. The album will be released February 24 2014, but is already available for pre-order @ Etch Shop.
[MPFree] compilation. After the first Free collection of Electro Swing tunes, the scene has evolved and so has volume 2 compiled with love by DJ Eliazar for the Speakeasy Electro Swing party crew from Montreal.
Lots of ace tunes to love and bug out to. It’s funky, Jazzy, Swingy and dancefloory. Ah scratch that. Major dance floor bombs alert!
Paul McCartney - New (Produced by Mark Ronson) > Yeah you read that right. Mark Ronson. Producing Paul McCartney. And it’s good. I really dig the vibe here; positive, vibrant, and dare I say it… Retro. This may be a precursor of a McCartney solo album that I will actually listen to. Too bad we’ll have to wait until October.
[MPFree] @mrbirdmusic - Soul Troopers > Awesomely soulful funky groover by this ‘nu funk’ producer. Bird has managed to put consistently warm soulful sounding tunes. Go dig in! (also, currently This Is My Jam)
Bo Saris - The Addict > Never thought I’d be so curious and excited about a former dutch Singing Competition contestant gearing up to release an album. But this guy, he’s doing it so well. The soul is BIG in this guy and he’s taking his time to make it all sooo good.
