I ranked my favourite Jamiroquai albums in reverse order for you to debate or agree with. My list of best to worst Knxwledge albums was tongue in cheek but it appears people are taking it seriously enough to search for his best albums and finding the article. I was tempted to do the same for Jamiroquai but decided against it. And rather than have a…

It’s time to get a groove on with Fullee Love on his new single, Deney Terrio. I’m writing this on a Monday morning and lord knows we need all the motivation we can get after a weekend of not working (if you’re fortunate enough to not work on those days). Deney Terrio is definitely the right way to start. It comes from Fullee Love, better known…

The new Jamiroquai video is here for Superfresh, featuring lots of lights and a little less of Jay. While Jay Kay recovers from a back injury, a few tour dates have been cancelled over the past few weeks. But that hasn’t stopped a new video from being produced. Superfresh is the fourth track on their latest album, Automaton, with a rich disco vibe harking back…

Harvey Sutherland and Bermuda’s “Why Look Back?” is our Song for Sunday. The clocks have gone forward which means we’re creeping towards summer. That also means the folks down in Australia are inching ever closer to their winter. But that hasn’t stopped Aussie keyboardist Harvey Sutherland and his band Bermuda from salvaging the last of the summer rays for their latest EP Expectations. It’s brilliant…

Obscure disco albums are pure gold dust. Kiki Gyan’s 24 Hours In A Disco 1978-1982 is just one of those gems. Being hailed as Africa’s answer to Stevie Wonder is a heavy burden to carry but Kiki Gyan attempted it in the 70s as a plucky teenager. Starting out as the keyboardist for highlife band Osibisa at the age of 15, Kiki took the band’s style of music literally and found himself…

Ernesto Chahoud aka DJ Spindle provides the sounds for Jakarta’s tenth radio show episode. While to some the name “Beirut Groove Collective” may sound like a hipster’s art rock band fantasy, it is the real brainchild of Lebanese DJ Ernesto Chahoud, better known as DJ Spindle. “Middle Eastern Heavens II” is an exclusive mix for Jakarta Records’ 10th radio episode. Middle Eastern funk and disco…

Get down to some Japanese funk from the 80s with this two-part mix on YouTube. When it comes to technological advancement and musical adaptation, Japan are light years ahead. During the 80s, they provided some fantastic jazz and pop renditions and still do so today but where many music buffs find gold are in the funk/boogie/rare groove records from the Land of the Rising Sun….

This 1978 disco episode of 60 Minutes is our Throwback Thursday presentation, starring Studio 54. A year before some racist folks tried to kill disco, Dan Rather of 60 Minutes presented an episode on the disco movement. The hub of disco during its heyday was of course Studio 54 and the infamous nightclub acts as the documentary’s focal point but you also get an interesting…

It’s the 35th anniversary of the infamous Disco Demolition Night held at Chicago’s Comiskey Park. Witness the footage and the real meaning from Steve Dahl. On the night of July 12th during the “twi-night doubleheader” between local baseball rivals the Chicago White Sox and the Detroit Tigers, former DJ Steve Dahl lead a mass deluge of angry Chicagoans onto the field at Comiskey Park to declare the “death” of…
