Lots of cdr action this week including an exclusive live cut from The Bamboos recent gigs at the Adelaide Festival. New Zealand producer Dave Wright’ Solaa project deliver some soulful moments alongside the Mark de Clive-Lowe-produced Rasiyah bomb ‘U Better Run’. Remix action from Melbourne’s very own Bennson (props in this months Straight No Chaser) and another new sneaky remix of Angie Stone from UK producer wunderkind Opolopo. Check the deep,live future-jazz of Me’Shell Ndegeocello’s Luqman (from the ‘Dance of The Infidel’ LP – this track feat. Jack DeJohnette, Don Byron & Oliver lake!) and Reel People’s ‘In The Sun’ for two sides of soul. Brisbane act The View From Madeleine’s Couch deliver a beautiful version of the classic ‘Berimbau’ to bring up the Brazilian quotient…
