Genre bending tunes that cross the globe and blur the boundaries between Soul, Jazz, Funk, Latin, Hip Hop, Broken Beat, House, and other left-field Electronica.

Well what can I say. Almost four weeks since my last show. Don't worry next year will be more organised than i have been the last two months. Just insanely busy with the label and touring.

The best part of it is i have got some amazing tunes on this weeks show. Brand new act out of the UK Ed Meme and The Forms, recently signed to Straightup Recordings. EP out in the new year. New releases on Knowfoowl Records run by Sydney man, Huwston. Tunes from Rephrase with an Edseven remix and Watusi along with a fantastic new act off Tru Thoughts called Saravah Soul.

Moving on to a sweet little jazz set where for me the highlight is from a man I only recently heard about (cheers to Chris at Northside Records, not just for this album for years of listening) Johnny Frigo out of Chicago. Now pushing 90 years old and still playing amazing jazz music!!

The last part of the show is dedicated to some bigger production new releases. Some serious dub off Poets Club Records 10 year comp. A tune from this years Australian Hip Hop album of the year from N'Fa called My Style (featuring Roots Manuva) plus some new material from the upcoming Kidgusto album.

I hope to get a chance to do my xmas mix next week, if I don't will wish you guys now a great holiday time and see you in the new year with more insane Constant Time.

Drop me a line if you would like to know more!!
