Recommendation of the Day – Karmasound – La Búsqueda

This album is fast becoming something of a ‘go to’ mood enhancer for me.  If I feel like I need a little lift (let’s face it who doesn’t these days) I reach for this album.  I’ve been a big fan of Karmasound since discovering his EPs on the always on point Phuture Shock label, but nothing prepared me for this album.  It’s on the jazzy broken beat tip that you might have noticed is a favourite with me, but this album is so much more than that.  Have a listen, I guarantee it will bring a smile to your face.

Recommendation of the Day – Footshooter – Libations & Movement

Time for a new feature in these crazy times we’re living through.  I thought I’d post a music recomendation every day to keep us all sane.  First up, a brand new EP of amazing music from Footshooter for the Dance Regular label.  Following on from his releases on YAM and Rhythm Section (as one half of Saul) we now have this epic new EP Libations & Movements.  Loads of great guests on this one; singers, rappers and poets adding to the vibe.  Musically it’s a rich soulful, jazz inflected broken beat tapestry that sounds great on the home stereo but no doubt will rock the club, when that kind of thing is legal again.  One track is available to stream at the moment and comes with bandcamp pre-orders, but you can get a sneak peak at a second track towards the end of my mix here too.

The return of MyHouseYourHouse, tune in tonight at 6pm

MyHouseYourHouse was one of the original streaming stations dedicated to dance music.  I was proud to be involved for a good number of years with my Repair Your Soul shows and later alongside my good friend Dave Sector with the Beyond Sector 12/12 shows.  The MyHouseYourHouse team have decide to get the band back together for a limited period whilst the world is in Covid-19 lockdown.  They’ve already had excellent sessions from the likes of Red Rackem, Beane Noodler and main organiser Alex Traska.  The full schedule can be viewed on the website.  I will be bringing back Repair Your Soul this evening from 6pm for an old school vinyl session.  Plenty of vintage House and Broken tunes all lined up, with a couple of funk bombs.  It’s a video stream too, so you can have a little peak into the chaos that is my attic/studo and laugh at the look of concentration on my face.  Join us from 6pm GMT here
