Unfortunately Gaslamp Killer's flight got held up in Sydney, but we still got to give away tix to his show as well as copies of RRR's album of the week from the Bamboos.

Sadly another tribute this week, for the recently passed Marc Moulin, the Belgian keyboardist who was a true innovator with groups like Placebo and Telex as well as his solo work, providing a body of jazz, funk and electronic disco that has since inspired countless hip hop and techno musicians. He was still recording for Blue Note in the 2000s and will be missed by many.

I figured out the Jazmine Sullivan puzzle that was bugging me last week, so did a Trainspotters' Corner featuring the tunes by Art of Noise and Stevie Wonder that informed her cut 'Fear'.

Other notables: Luciana Souza's Joyce-style scatting on a new version of the classic Aquelas Coisas Todas, Quasimode re-connect with the amazing Carmen Lundy, Mayer Hawthorne puts the hip hop in doo wop, Zephaniah and Oriol representing the 80s boogie revival, and for the beatheads a new Onra album and Reebok comp put together by Jay Scarlett.
