I am gonna be brief this month, its late, I think I'll let the music do the talking.
Its a funk-heavy selection with plenty of classic hip hop references and a few new something somethings thrown in for good measure.
As usual all the tracks and the original artwork are free to download at: www.midnightsushiclub.blogspot.com
2. Lilo Thomas has been a bit of a revelation to me this month, this beat like a brand new boy-racer won't stop doing donuts in my mind. Its the part that sounds like a car screeching round a tight corner. Tight? yes.
8. Dilla done did it again. This cover of the the classic 80's tune by Man Without Hats has a little more bass and a little less vocal, I can't argue with the outcome.
12. A track from Sharon Jones's new album 'I Learned The Hard Way'. She manages to create a timeless sound over and over, thanks to a dedication to old skool recording techniques and the tightest big band around right now. Anything Daptone Records put out is a must for me.
16. A sensitive remix of a feel good classic. The second remix I've selected in a row by the guys from Toronto. I was out there last winter and enjoyed every minute, slippery after a few Pale Ales though...
