Welcome back listeners after a fair few months break. I've been gallivanting around the planet getting up to all kinds of mischief, and now I am going to try and make up for lost time by packing a bunch of amazing tracks into this episode. Special mentions include "Ill Gates" (aka the Phat Conducta), Sydney-sider M.O.R. from his latest album Masters of Ribongia, a sneak preview track from Shafiq Husayn's new album set for release October 6th and a glorious jam by Dam Funk from Toeachizown Vol 3: Life. Even though there is a crapload of great new releases which we touch on for the first part of the podcast I can't help but go back a bit and play you some really really old school tracks, possibly because there is a fair few tracks in this podcast that SOUND like they could have been written in the early sixties. Artists like the Gas Lamp Killer, Poets of Rhythm, the Phenomenal Handclap Band, and the Heliocentrics have been so incredibly influenced by the psych, soul and funk era, so we just have to pay some serious homage to some o/g's: Ike and Tina Turner, the Fibonnacis, Durutti Column and Eddie Kendricks, the latter who clearly inspired Erykah Badu with the track "My People....Hold on". Now that I have heard the original, I can't work out which version I like better. They are both so great, which I guess is a sign of the times.


As far as I know, I am not a robot.
