After a two week break we’re back with some killer new sounds from Melbourne’s very own The Bamboos

with a cover-version of Max Sedgely’s floor-filler ‘Happy’…The Root’s new album ‘Game Theory’ out now

on Def Jam…Remix action form Stockholm’s finest Opolopo (My copy of his new Especial 12” ‘Life’s A Dance’ didn’t arrive in time for this weeks show, but if you haven’t already heard it, do yourself a favour and BUY IT! – Essential is not the word)… Your’s truly on remix duties for London’s Ok Ma out on R2 records in an 80’s flavour…Soulful sounds form Bilal, Nicolay and Amp Fiddler (check the ‘Afro Strut’ LP on Genuine)…

More Antipodean innovation from Melbourne’s Soul Mirage (AKA Simon Gorman)… Jimi Tenor has a new long-player coming out next year entitled ‘Joystone’, we hear ‘Smoking’ , featuring the West African percussion group Kabu Kabu…Cosmic righteousness from The Heritage Orchestra with the 10-minute epic ‘Sky Breaks’ on

Gilles Petersons Brownswood imprint… ‘nuff good music to soak up until next time…Ate mais tarde!!!!
