Not one of Mr Fingers more known tracks but I'm def playin' this one 2night. Taken from his "Back To Love" album on Blackmarket Int Records I remember this got regular spins when it came out. The album also includes another heavy soul/house cut called "Never Take Your Place". But the rest of the album really sucks though with sum pretty lame lounge/r&b tracks (zzzz...). He should stick to house!
Tomorrow (Saturday) we got a double line up at Raw Fusion with J-Heart from LA and Hugo Mendez from London. J-Heart have made a name for herself in and around LA spinning 80s boogie, r&b and hip hop. She's tight with peeps like Dam Funk, Soulsession, Frank (J-Dilla) etc. Hugo Mendez on the other hand is one of those hardcore vinyl diggers that goes knockin' doors in Africa or in the Caribbean for those rare world/funk nuggets. He's worked on several comps retro and throw dope parties in the London area. If u'r in Stockholm...don't miss out!
I was ripping in Leon's classic "I Want' A Do Something Freaky To You" when I skipped through the album and found this monster tune hidden away as the last track. It sounds a bit like The Staple Singers "I'll Take You There" but better. Proper feelgood biz...loveleee!
There's been plenty of hot releases on GAMM since we first began with Red Astaire's classic "Follow Me" back in 2003 (now available online at Juno Download). But one of my personal faves is Beatfanatics rework of Free Life's gospel infected "There's Something Better". Its quite simply one of the best end of the nights tunes ever recorded with a guaranteed feel good factor. I'm serving u both the original and Beatfanatics rework...jus' take u'r pick!
Now this is what I'm talkin' about, can this cat do anything wrong?? Peven is my man...jus' check the video clip's below...in-fuckin-credible!!! You don't see shit like this no'mo? Especially check the wicked drummer in the first clip...this is what happens when u'r gettin' down with soulful music...inspiring!
Btw, Peven just got a new hot album out...buy it here
