Mercenárias 'Inimigo'



In preparation of my trip to the Central American jungle on Saturday, I've been listening to a lot of Panamanian funk and Peruvian psych (as recommended by El Guincho) and this track from the really quite brilliant Soul Jazz comp, The Sexual Lift of The Savages.

I used to play this a lot at our old club night. Nobody liked it much, except me.

James Fox - 'New Jack Swing'



I hated new jack swing when it was in it's heyday. But that was just an early onset of indie snobbery, deep down I loved quietly grooving to Guy and Al B Sure. This doesn't sound like either of those, it's house. Which is also good.

Jacques Greene - 'Another Girl'



The Koreless remix of 'The Look' is also amazing

The Supremes + Joni Mitchell = Krautrock!

In the 70's, long past their peak, The Supremes released this cover of Joni Mitchell's 'All I Want'. It comes from their Jimmy Webb produced self-titled album and was released in 1972, the same year Neu! released their debut album and coincidently features a Klaus Dinger-esque motorik beat!
