Diddy Wah goes gospel

Diddy Wah - 7 hours 42 min ago
Monday was Easter Monday and so I got my gospel on for this sanctified instalment of the Diddy Wah radio saga. Joshua, Elijah, Shadrach, Meshach and all the old testament crew were shaking hands, shouting, marching and generally feeling alright. It was a happy day.

Each time I cling to your kiss, I hear music divine

mp3: Richard Berry - Besame Mucho

Here's one of the Richard Berry records that Flip released between Louie Louie in 1957 and Have Love Will Travel in 1959. Yep, you guessed it, Besame Mucho arrived in record stores for the first time in 1958. I've posted several versions of this, famously written by a fourteen year old girl and the most covered Mexican song of all time, but this is my fave so far.

Chanson – 1978 – Chanson

Funk My Soul - Sun, 2014-04-20 13:40

Starting of as a broad assemblage of studio musicians, Chanson were led by bassist James Jamerson Jr. (son of the famous Motown bassist James Jamerson) and guitarist David Williams. The two of them met while playing with Temptations and they hatched the idea of Chanson. They released the superb debut album with such hits as the #21 Billboard Hot 100 chart smash “Don’t Hold Back” which also entered the R&B top ten at #8, plus the top twenty US Dance Chart classic “I Can Tell“.  The album also featured Earth, Wind & Fire‘s horn section, and Boz Scaggs‘ rhythm section which will assure a spot in everyone s soul music collection. Tracks A1 Don’t Hold Back 4:23 A2 I Can Tell 7:03 A3 I Love You More 3:49 B1 Why 4:25 B2 Did You Ever 4:33 B3 All the Time You Need 5:10 A duo comprising guitarist David Williams, and …

ALISHA not just Baby Talk

Disco Vinyl - Sat, 2014-04-19 21:58
Born in Brooklyn, N.Y. April 16, 1968, Alisha Ann Itkin in art ALISHA came onto the scene in 1984.  With a sound truly influenced by Madonna yet with the pulse on the N.Y. underground ELECTRO scene she had her moment.  Unfortunately her career peaked before even hitting the age of 20.


Though she had three albums one in 1985, one in 1987 and the last in 1990 to me it was all about that debut album.  With both Mark Berry and Shep Pettibone on her team how could she lose?  An impressive 5 twelve inch singles were released off an album with only 6 songs!  How's that for working the marketing to the fullest?  She was also one of the few NON latino artists embraced by the FREESTYLE community.




In December 1985 she had her biggest hit when Baby Talk went to #1 on the Billboard Dance Chart.  But I think my favorite was Stargazin' because it was the least played out and I really love the lyrics.  Just a few years older then Alisha I too had stars in my eyes at the time.  But I guess I just had to content myself with being one of the most fashion forward and in your face kids on The American University quad.  AN ALISHA ZIP

ENDGAMES from SCOTLAND

Disco Vinyl - Sat, 2014-04-19 15:00
ENDGAMES were formed in 1980 in Glasgow, Scotland and put out a few synth pop records.  Several of these have become quite collectible and sound great even today.  In my zip I'm going to give you a couple of my favorites both from 1983, Love Cares and Ecstasy.
ENDGAMES ON SOUNDCLOUDWaiting for Another Chance from their 1983 l.p. Building Beauty was a big hit in Germany breaking the Top 30 while Miracle in my Heart the b side of the delicious Ecstasy was later sampled by Heavy D.


If you haven't heard them I suggest you get their two album Building Beauty and Natural.  You should find plenty to enjoy.First, Last for Everything from 1982 is probably their biggest classic and a real seminal electronic dance song that went on to be a WBMX classic spun by greats like Frankie Knuckles.

Mäng

Another Night on Earth - Fri, 2014-04-18 22:31
I dont know anything about Marju Kuut, I suspect she is the wife or sister of the very brilliant Uku Kuut ??? Well obviously there is a connection... Uku produced her 1992 album 'Zuke' for one. I'm a major fan of Uku and this strings heavy beauty by Marju popped up on his Souncloud feed earlier today (it is also downloadable for the moment). 'Mäng' was previously available on the 22 track compilation of her music called 'Raagus Sõnad' out in Estonia in 2005; it was written by American songwriter and musician Leon Russel. What a gem!
 

absolutely straight

Another Night on Earth - Fri, 2014-04-18 21:25
I'm not breaking any new ground here, just highlighting a track that's been getting a fair bit of play at a.n.o.e. headquarters of late. Phantom Band were made up of a couple of ex Can members and some Dunkelziffers. According to Discogs they initially focused on the Fusion Jazz sound of late Can before shifting in an Art Rock direction. Thus their debut eponymous lp would be the one that peaks my interest most... Weirdly the album's soft blue, chalky, new age/world music sleeve feels disconnected from the good stuff inside it (maybe im reading it wrong); i somehow can't bridge the magic sounds of Hulger Czuckay, Dominik Von Senger, Helmutt Zerlett and Conny Plank with it's thin 80's veneer. Anyway, i been spinning 'Absolutely Straight' quite a bit... those drums, those keys, the spacey bits, it's inventive jaunt... it's anything but absolutely straight... check it if you don't know it..

Johnny Adams - Come On

Diddy Wah - Fri, 2014-04-18 11:54


mp3: Johnny Adams - Come On

Johnny Adams had a very long singing career, but this is from way back near the start of it. Come On was released in 1959 on Ric Records out of New Orleans, Adams' home town. I love the way NOLA R&B is all interconnected; the fantastic production is thanks to a teenage Mac Rebennack. The backing vocals are the icing on cake for me, so I guess that makes the whistle solo the cherry. I played this record twice at Joe's last night, but that wasn't nearly enough.

BOOT AND TAX - Fusci Ep - Optimo Trax

Disco Safari - Thu, 2014-04-17 10:35

Boot & Tax return with their second EP following the success of the sold out "Acido" EP which received a multitude of plays from a plethora of djs in a profusion of discotheques.
These Milanese maestros deliver four dance floor delights in their own inimitable and distinctive style. Working across a range of tempos and incorporating more of Boot's great vocalising they also manage to weave a Jaw's Harp solo in there and make it seem like a potential replacement for the TB 303.
This also takes us to 50% of Optimo Trax so far being of Italian origin. We're not entirely sure how this happened but despite rumours to the contrary, we are open to releasing music from other countries within or outwith the EU.

Optimo Trax OT 008 is released on 12" and digital June 2014. Distribution by Kompakt and Rub A Dub.


Tracklist:

A1 - Fusci
A2 - Confuzed House
B1 - Occhi Blu
B2 - Il Canto


planet of winds

Another Night on Earth - Wed, 2014-04-16 17:21
Ralph Lundsten is a real favourite of mine, though mainly his 70's and early 80's records. Diggers know him well and many a leftfield Disco dj has been heard playing that amazing Discophrenia record. He's incredibly inventive and can weave a thick fog of scenic atmosphere's like few other, his music is also often filled with beautiful intricate and evolving melodies... this makes him easy to obsess over... which i do. So... here's 'The Planet Of Winds' from his 1977 lp with The Andromeda Allstars, an amazing easy funkin groove underpins this journey to far gone places. Huge!
