    Playlist for MONDAY APRIL 30 . 2001
    Archived for online listening:

    Pick of the Week: Phuturistic Danciní, Mission One, a wicked,
    groovalicious new compilation released on Bitasweet, home of the Bugz In
    the Attic crew. Fans of nu jazz, broken beats and all things sweet will
    definitely want to check this one, featuring top-notch tunes by the
    likes of G. Force & Seiji (their "Naturally" literally gives me
    goosebumps), Kudu, Da One Away, Afro Force, New Sector Movements and
    others. Recommended. Check for more
    info and MP3ís.

    Guests: Montrealís Freeworm drove straight from home to the CKLN studio,
    making it in time to chat for a wee bit about his album (the wonderful
    Vegetation = Fuel on Hydrophonik), his approach to sounds and music,
    live performances and much more. Very sweet, genuine, grounded and
    talented, Vincent Letellier aka Freeworm went on to wow people with his
    sounds and good vibes when he and ëvocalistí Chim Wewe performed live at
    Glide later that week.

    Playlist for MONDAY MAY 7 . 2001
    Archived for online listening:

    Pick of the Week: Two years in the making, Block 16's debut Morning Sun
    has obviously been lovingly crafted by the trio of house producer and
    frequent Idjut Boys collaborator Raj Gupta aka Laj, classically trained
    Faze Action keyboardist Pete Zivkovic, and DJ/producer Glen Gunner of
    Street Corner Symphony. Brimming with emotion, positivity and talent,
    the appropriately titled album absolutely exudes sunshine. Guest
    vocalists include Jhelisa, Jon Lucien, Robert Owens and the late, great
    Bim Sherman. Released May 22 on Nuphonic (distributed by Fusion 3 in
    Canada) and easily one of my faves of the year. Stunning.

    Guests: It was a crazy busy one as I was lucky enough to bring listeners
    two separate interviews with some of the nicest folks currently making
    dance music. Firstly, I had a lengthy in-studio chat with former
    Torontonian and soulful vocalist extraordinaire Lisa Shaw (Naked Music)
    and her husband and frequent collaborator, producer/DJ Swingsett (Ism,
    Esho Recordings). Later, listeners enjoyed (and, judging by the many
    emails I received after, they did enjoy!) a conversation I had with Ben
    Watt of Lazy Dog and Everything But the Girl. Tracking him down from
    city to city was worth it indeed. Check the online archive if youíd like
    to hear these interviews.
