Kat 010 - Mammatus Mindtricks

Really feeling this track from Kat010 (keyboardist for Crown City Rockers). While Crown City Rockers isn't fully my cup of tea, this here is the type of ish I love. Reminds me of Stereolab with a touch of experimental Stevie Wonder. Taken from her Natural Phenomena album.

For Amy

A real shame, innit?
This here is one of my favorite moments spawned from the impeccable Back to Black album she gave us.

Omar - Dancing...and being LEGEND!

Just heard Omar on this week's Gilles Peterson. OKSG and I LOVE this catand have been fans since we first heard him on acid jazz compilations in the early 90s; he is a modern soul music LEGEND. Too many people sleep on him, don't you be one of them. Here's your marching orders:

Listen to him on Gilles,

listen to him on this Tru Thoughts podcast (MP3),

and get into this video. I am devoting my life to this track at the moment.

Sum Summer Mixes

Summer is one of our favorite times of the year for obvious reasons. Whether you are relaxing on rooftops, in backyards, on the beach or just in your room, these are some excellent mixes that will make all that relaxing even more enjoyable.

Nguzunguzu - XLR8R mix
Nguzunguzu's mix of unique 'mythic' bass/ dance music will have you dancing at moments but mostly modding your head and grooving to the big sounds.

Flying Lotus - Lovers Melt 2
A follow up mix to his Lover's Melt podcast mix for Stones Throw, here Flying Lotus breaks out the soulful, funky and jazzy sounds mixing everything from Stevie Wonder to Curtis Mayfield, CAN and Donald Byrd. Alot of my favorites on here as well. This is a grand mix round these parts. [highly recommended]
