The majority of the show this week is a tribute so some of the amazing acts I saw perform at the Big Chill festival over here in the UK last weekend. There were some amazing artist that played and some of the highlights for me would definitely be Ursula Rucker, Seasick Steve, the Heritage Orchestra and also Sebastian Tellier (who managed to sing an entire song whilst smoking a cigarette through his nose

) So what I have done, is put together a special mix, playing the tracks I heard in order I saw them performed

But before that, I just had to sneak in a few new tunes I have been playing, including some future classics from Freddie Cruger with his take on Saturday love, the mid-80s Cherrelle and Alexander O'Neal duet of the same name and a crunching floor filler from Pharoah Roach taken from the upcoming Jazzanova Broadcasting LP.


As far as I know, I am not a robot.
