Continuing the recent wave of hectic Stylin episodes, we managed to fit two guests and a tribute in this week. I was sad to hear of the recent passing of singer Irene Reid. While I can't claim to be the foremost expert on her very long career, I couldn't not pay tribute to a lady with a great rich jazz voice and tunes I love from the 60s to the 00s.
Martin Kwok dropped in to represent with a strictly-NZ selection including new Recloose material, new Nathan Haines featuring Ty and production by Chris Cox (Antipodean) and of course a brand new one of his own Dan Aikido Blends. Stylin listeners have been hearing the blends for a good few years now, but the big news is that many are being released on two 7" singles and a CD album via new Japanese label Black Belt Beauty.
LA-based all-round entertainer (singer, rapper, DJ, producer, etc) Aloe Blacc came directly to 3RRR from Melbourne Airport, immediately busting out his laptop to play us a bunch of fresh tunes. Amongst them, a cut featuring his vocals over Madlib's beat for 'Baby' before it was used by J Dilla and a heavy funk version of Brasilian standard 'Berimbau', re-edited from Aloe's recording of Egon's set at Peanut Butter Wolf's wedding!
Managed to slip a few tunes in myself too. Joey Negro's Sunburst Band are back with some killer midtempo boogie, Melbourne's Soul Mirage come with a couple of tasters for releases later this year and Detroit maestro Pirahnahead starts his new label with a soulful house monster. Plus house classic 'The Way You Love Me' gets remixed dubstep style and dubstep classic 'Night' gets remixed drum & bass style.
Stylin broadcasts live each Friday on Australia's best known community station, 3RRR-FM Melbourne.
