What a playlist to get through today. So much new music plus some gems i thought i would throw in. An album of contention it would appear is 2004's Madlib Blue Note album. I personally love what the man did with the old masters but I hear a lot of jazzers feel it is a cop out. Hah! All I can say. I am sure the proof is in the pudding and if the Mizell Brothers can stand up and say dope then we gotta respect it.

Lots of new material out of NZ this week (it is New Zealand music week and if you want a real taste, not just my watered down version of it then check out the Jewelschool mix). One man of note who is going to be a great addition to the already swelling pot of culture over there is St Liquor-ish. I play two of his tracks on the show and will play more! Brand new tune from The Tornadoes as well (Julien Dyne on drums I believe.

A great new wobbler from Mr. Scruff. Can he do anything wrong? And also new material from Flevans. I am not a great fan of the whole album but there is some quite cool material on it including this track, "All To Play For" feat. Shona Foster.

Rainer Trueby is also back with some amazing house at the end of the program. The title of the 12" will raise some hairs being Ayers Rock (it's called Uluru Rainer!!!) but the A Side is a deep house rework of the classic "To Know You". I am convinced!!

Until next week.
Keep warm and stay relaxed.

peace
