The Japanese duo return with a new collab project. Japan’s influence on hip hop should not go unmentioned. The nation gave us anime which has become synonymous with the genre’s lo-fi variant. Some of the greatest DJ’s were born there: DJ Kentaro, DJ Krush, The Silent Poets, and the late Nujabes. From the underground, Bugseed continues to reign supreme. His heavy style of boom bap…

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…

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…

To whet your appetite for their upcoming album, here’s a funk/rare groove/acid jazz/house mix courtesy of DJ Spivey. We’ll let DJ Spivey describe the mix: I still remember the first time I stumbled on that first Jamiroquai CD. The year was 1993 and I walked by that Disc many times while shopping for 12 inch House Cuts at Record Time Music Store, right outside of…

DJ JaBig recorded a live Jamiroquai DJ mix in a Montréal last month and it’s now available to stream and download. You can’t beat a good DJ mix, especially where Jamiroquai are concerned. The best house DJ of the moment, according to Casol Magazine, the Canadian disk jockey recorded the DJ mix back in June and packed it full of the group’s greatest hits as…

Nick van Gelder drums up a treat with Brighter Star. The shrewder music aficionado’s amongst you may recognise Nick van Gelder as the first drummer for Jamiroquai before he left the band in 1994. Since then, he has been touring with other bands extensively and in April last year, he released Groovitas, capturing that old acid jazz vibe that kept the 90s so funky. Before…

Lakim delivers a dope flip of an already dope Jamiroquai track. I don’t think I’ve ever heard a bad Jamiroquai flip and Lakim hasn’t bucked that trend. Not only has he chosen my favourite Jamiroquai track to switch up, Space Cowboy, he’s given it an even jazzier vibe with some nice drum licks; Jay Kay would be proud. Hell, it’s got me listening to the…

We watch Jamiroquai keeping it live and funky in 1995 on this week’s Throwback Thursday. It was Jamiroquai front man Jay Kay’s birthday a couple of weeks ago and at the age of 43, he’s still going strong with the band who are currently working on a new album. For this week’s Throwback Thursday, we have a live performance from the group filmed way back…
