What a shock - the legend + GODFATHER of Soul James Brown died yesterday.
This magic man opened the door to sound of funk and it's funky flavours.
I hope he teaches the old man upstairs how to dance !

Here's a couple of mp3's to give thanks to the main man:

Soulful Christmas - James Brown ***mp3***
(Jazzman :::
JM. 036 (JMXMAS. 001) ::: 2004)
Published by Unichappell Music Inc / Dynatone Publishing Company.
1968 UMG Recordings Inc.

The Payback Mix - James Brown ***mp3***
(Keep On Doing What You're Doing But Make It Funky)
Mixed by Matt Black & Jonathan More (Coldcut)
(PolyGram 1988)

Out in 1988 (18 years ago !) blending together some of his many great moments and has become the definitive and authorised mix of his greatest hits.
With the help of relative newcomers at the time, Matt Black & Jonathan More, later to become the awesome Coldcut, this single reached No. 12 in the charts that April and the live mix apparently received an eight minute standing ovation at the DMC 'Disco' Mix Championships at the Albert Hall the same year !!!

*****N.B. These mp3's will be available for this week only *****

I've even had time to mash up Mr BUSH with the classic 'Imagine' (Does that make ME a terrorist I wonder ?!)

    Here's what the maestro Swampmaster said about it on the Lemon Jelly forum:

    .....this izza updated version ov mix from 2yrs back. iv added a coupla trax, some extra “goals” bitz & a few other tweaks here & there. cheerz to ted fer cover.

    fer maximum listening experience:
    1. play loud
    2. start play 67mins b4 eng-er-land kick off time (or any game yr interested in really, but obviously particularly relevant fer eng-er-land matches, hehe)
    3. dredge out every future footy tournament (particularly good in werld cup) and repeat…

    this mix started life in 1998 during the world cup in france. i woz guesting bi-weekly onna local radio station, crash fm, where me mate woz presenting nitely evening prog. it woz kinda interestin whether i actually had enuff footy rekkids to make a decent slot. it woz more ovva sequence ov rekkids back then. altho iv kept to original traxlist (almost) itz actually a mix now.

    during last world cup, japan 2002, i really enjoyed spinnin all versions/mixes ov “werld in motion” b4 eng-er-land matches. so, i decided to try & meld togever 3 versions: “original”, “carabinieri mix”, “no alla violenza mix”. in original selection it woz jus 1st 2. anywayz, it turned into a 15min megamix, phew! sumfin i aint tried b4.

    SECRET KLF MIX: The Sound Of Mu(sic)

    Posted in

    Hi there, I was just tracking back using Add Stats this monday morning - clicked on one of the search links and found this post on Dub dot dash dating back to August 25, 2005(!).

    It's great mix-up of the classic 1990's CHILL OUT album - the beginnings of the ambient scene.

    The blurb reads that it's a soundtrack to a documentary coming out sometime in 2006(!).

    In true KLF style thats all I can find out - If you happen to know more - please drop me a line!

    SHED BOOGIE TUNE (02.05.06) ::::: Steady Diggin Workshop : Doin' It Well / Dippin' Biscuits / Ghost Biter

    Posted in

    Steady Diggin Workshop : Doin' It Well / Dippin' Biscuits / Ghost Biter
    Carbon Imprints 7" - CI7004

    Side A
    Doin' It Well (pt. 1) (Carbon Imprints 30sec mp3)
    Side B
    Dippin' Biscuits (pt. 1) (Carbon Imprints 30sec mp3)
    Ghost Biter (Carbon Imprints 30sec mp3)

    Carbon Imprints drop another quality seven from the highly rated Steady Diggin Workshop. First off the bat is the Afro stomper "Doin It Well (Pt 1)". With its driving bassline, percussive drum patterns and chugging acoustic guitar, punctuated by sharp brass riffs, the words 'Kuti', 'Upsetters' and 'Popcorn' spring to mind. On the flip there's a bonus beat of the same track under the title "Ghost Biter", which also snatches parts of RJD2's "Ghostwriter". Lastly you get the monster basslinedriven clip cloppin' funk groover "Dippin' Biscuits" for hip hop tempo party warmin'.

    Side A
    Sounds Good (Piccadilly Records 30sec mp3)
    Side B
    Pickinit (Piccadilly Records 30sec mp3)

    In 2005 Flevans (tru Thoughts) hooked up with the Jack To Phono label to release his debut 7" under the name Mooch. The full length Mooch album, "Sounds Good", is now completed, featuring contributions from Backini, Dr Rubberfunk, JFB and Johnny Tarr (Blackgrass), and this 45 pulls two cuts from it as a sneaky preview Title track "Sounds Good" has an infectious rolling bassline and killer vocal hooks, while "Pickinit" is a real head-nodder; a laid-back funk track dripping with wah wah guitars.

  • SHED BOOGIE TUNE OF THE WEEK (1.03.06) ::::: A-ko EP

    Posted in

    One of my favourite tunes from last year "Soul '69" gets another outing on the new MPM (022) 12"

    The Iowa-based DJ / producer A-ko returns with his first 12" EP, two brand new tracks of funky hip hop / b-boy breaks, one for the dancers and one for the headz, plus two reworked cuts from his long-gone "Soul '69" 45.

    First up is the funky rock breaker "Chicago", which is followed by the more sedate hip hop / downbeat smokers track "Fire".

    Over on the flip there's a Clean Cut version of b-boy breaker "Soul '69" which is sure to get the lino shining. Lastly Devil McDoom takes on "Untitled", giving it a cinematic B-movie 60s psyche-funk twist - a spooky one for the DJ Shadow heads.

    Side A
    1. Chicago (Piccadilly Records 30sec mp3)
    2. Fire (Piccadilly Records 30sec mp3)

    Side B
    1. Soul '69 (Clean Cut) (Piccadilly Records 30sec mp3)
    2. Untitled McDoom'd (Piccadilly Records 30sec mp3)

    SOUL69 / UNTITLED (7" MPM 012)
    10 January 2005

    Grimes, Iowa isn't exactly known for it's music scene. 5.399 people call this place home and A-ko doesn't even live in Grimes but a few miles outside where a 26.4k dial-up connection keeps him in touch with the beatmaking world. His favourite hang-out is where I spotted his raw talent.
    Now that A-ko has finished high-school it's time for RJD2 (or your other favourite "instrumental hip-hop" producer) to watch his back because this kid is so fresh and his beats are anything but clean (or cleared). So you better enjoy his DIY funk before he gets famous.

    >>> This is what he says about it: "....a friend of mine works part time at a modern furniture store in Milwaukee and has been after me for months to make a mix that she can play in the store. She was very persistent, so here it is. While I usually try to make mixes that demand some attention, this is something to play in the background while you go about your business. Some of the tracks may be overplayed for some of you, but there are some new numbers here as well. If you get a sudden urge to buy a new couch, it's the music's fault, not mine....." DJ Riko

    Posted in

    Sorry I havn't posted for a while - life on the go and all that!

    Here's something I've completely missed last year - the most talked about blend of 2005 gets pressed on vinyl and given a proper release after almost a year of download action.

    If you've not worked it out from the title, this mash-up takes Blondie's classic disco-not-disco anthem and adds Jim Morrison's vocal from "Riders On The Storm", with Debbie Harry's rap sandwiched in between, which works a treat.
