'FORWARDSBACKWARDS' RADIO SHOW PLAYLIST - SHOW 001 & 002 ARE available NOW !
check it out !
1.DJ Mitsu The Beats -New Awakening -Planet Groove album & 12'' -Japan
The DJ from Gagle comes through with his full player and our lives are herein
enriched.'Right here'featuring Dwele is awesome but theres also tracks
featuring Mark De Clive Lowe,Rich Medina(classic! ),Little Brother,Lady Alma
(alma horton) etc.Fine debut and those beats are PHAT.The 6 track 12 features
the lady Alma track plus the jazzy 'm.o.o.d for otis'
and 'jazzorgy'tracks.the 12 sold out in 7 days !!
lovely stuff that im buggin out to.Top Effort !!
2.steppah hunter-walk this step-seiji black forest gateau mix - compost
records - Germany 12''
tuff biznizz and what a great title.Its hardly desert tho...this is main meal
3.chaka domu & buju volcov -soul jah -Bestseven/sonar Kollektiv - German 7''
Top piece of plastic as jamaican reggae dancehall meets future broken beat
science on daniel best's label.Apparently Francios Kevorkian loves it.
4.Terry Hall - They gotta quit kicking my dog around -Honest Jon uk 10''
Lets face it they run a wicked record shop that's been around since i was in
short trousers,James Lavelle used to work there and they do a damn decent
selection of jazz/reggae/hip hop/broken/deep house at some of the cheapest
prices in london.Anyway this is a one sided 10'' with a latin cuban party
throwdown.Instant classic stamp all over it.Apparently this is fronted by the
ex member of the specials & fun boy three but maybe them boys are pulling my
leg !?? Sounds like a stonking Fruitmeat release but er....isnt !
5.John Beltran - Kissed by the sun -Ubiquity - usa 12''
Newie from John with a 4 tracker featuring ayro on the title track.Summer
latino vibes are here !
6.Dimitri From Paris -Live Jazz/This is your life-Suave Records - Japan 12''
Taken from the cruising attitude album this first 12 is a 3 tracker with a mix
from soulsauce ultilising the dolcet tones of victor davies on the this is
your life track.
7.Bobby Hughes Combination -Microneseren-stereo deluxe - german 12''
nice artwork on this new 12 from norways finest.im down with the jazzy
pressure drop mix but theres an excellent original mix and even a cuica
electro version.in the box it stays !
8.trevor whatever -havana -ninja uk 12''
taken from the new danceclass single trevor hits cuba's capital with a rump
shakin party pleaser.love it.
9.Truby Trio - A festa / Jaleo -Compost 12'' Germany
3 tracker from daddy truby & da boys.Two remixes from Cuica which is my
favorite but also a subdued much hyped Senor Coconut remix.Summery stuff !
10.Incognito - on the road - danny krivit re edit - Ibadan 12'' - usa
Its a dope mix that's been around since middle of last year and it finally
gets a press on a 12 with same track both sides.Essential stuff and richard
dorfmeister started his set with this record last saturdayin vienna.
11.Mika Nakashima - Love Addiction -Yukihiro Fukutomi remix -Sony Japan 12''
Luckily for us foreigners there are nice jazz based instrumentals on this 12
from the gorgeous Mika Nakashima.Shinchi Osawa (who incidently has just
released his new Mondo Grosso album,'Next Wave' in Japan aswell)produces the
original with Ryota Nozaki (mr jazztronik to you)who has arranged the strings
from chieko kinbara.Fukutomi toughens it up for the dancefloor but retains the
main essence of the track....
12.agent k -rideaway/getaway -giant step - usa 12''
old track gets re booted via giant step with mixes from blaze and spinna.forge
baby played spinna on his show last sunday but i much prefer the blaze mixes.
13.electrosacher -evenings ep -ohm records -italy 12''
great jazzual 12 on a label thats new to me.paine beefs up the beats on his
best mix yet but original stands tall.
14.Various -Electric Soul Compilation - Electric Chair -uk 12 sampler
3 tracks from the ever faithful unabombers which comes out in september.YBU
soul magic (which is exactly that)next to Detroit Experiment's think twice and
Phil asher's focus classic floorfiller 'Having your fun'.Need the full album
if this is anything to go by...
15.nigel hayes -movin on -sunshine - austria 12''
consistantly wonderful mr hayes comes through with a summer scorcher that's
juicier than an armful of ripe nectarines.latin & rhodes with added female
vocals with blacksoul & fred everything mixes make this essential.
16.Jellybean Soul - Keys of Life -Jellybean - US 12''
Got to give respects to Shuya Okino who played this first at The End and to
Vinyl junkies who have been stocking this for months and i didnt even know
(late AGAIN !! )Jazzy keys and lush vocals play over an irresistable house
17.Kenny Thomas -Crazy World -Su Su - uk 12''
SOUL.dont even ask me about it....just go and buy it.You know it makes
sense.Pure Class for the boogie massive.
18.Fertile Ground -The Moment -Seiji Remix - Counterpoint Records
Seiji makes it ruff n ready on Navasha Daya's incredible vocal.Anthem at Co Op
already and Forge baby after dismissing the mix initially played it 3 x on
Kiss Fm.Ayro on the flip.
19.Colorblind -Novo Dia -Plein Gaz - French 12''
Those lovely boys from Lyon in France...DJ Spider and Jun Matsuoka deliver a
tasty 12'' on their own label with a spanish mix from Wagon Cookin.
20.DJ Gregory -Elle -Faya Combo -French 12''
Massive.I know,i know....im soooo late on this one and i missed out on the
double pack which has lots of more mixes.This is the without doubt the sound
of summer 2003 .it will cross over many dancefloors and it works every
time.Defected apparently have picked it up for a uk imminent release so no
doubt there'll be more versions to follow on the uk 12s.Its also on gilles
21.Calm - sketch on banana paper - Rambling - Japan 12''
Calm goes for the dancing juggular vibe and comes with a nice electronic vibe
on a beautiful deep houser.Chari Chari mix on da flipside and both tracks
taken from the banana connection cd album from last year.Should feature on my
next Japanese compilation for american label Kristal Entertainment aswell
later this year.
22.pharcyde & soul unit -casanova- soul unit usa 12
pharcyde go latin cuban hip hop.tasty.
23.miyazawa -a tango for guevara & evita -truby treatment - future world funk -
Longest title of the week award goes to this little beauty.Think the tracks is
from a sterns music album as rainer and the gang go club floor friendly to
this latin influenced ditty.
24.ocote soul sounds -look sharp/divinorum -fruitmeat -usa 7''
great 7''of a latin funk & afro brass stabbing nature that will stay in the
box as a ''get out of jail'' kind of record for the dancefloor.Great
25.Fuzz Against Junk -Latino -Location - uk 12''
Nicola Conte (the nu bossa king supremo )gets his group of merry musicians in
the studio to deliver another stonking jazz bossa beauty...but dont just
satisfy yourself with his remix as theres a decently delicious original re
recorded version on the 12 aswell.Quality.
26.Drumagick -Maladragem - Schema -italian 12''
Wikked brazilian drum n bass track that is guarranteed to fill any gaps on a
faltering floorspace.Expose yourself to dancing glory ! Rejoice !! killer.
27.Various - The Room 10th Anniversary - 3 x seperate 12''singles - Sony Japan
3 seperate 12's celebrating with shuya okino 10 years of his club,The Room.On
the brown 12'' you get a James Mason cover of 'Free' from Cosmic Village and a
new jazz track by sleepwalker (plus 2 ).On the Olive Green 12''you get a
Makoto remix of KJM plus a mad jazz track from Breath -a new project from Masa
of sleepwalker & Calm and a mix of Mondo Grosso's Cenario(plus 1).On the Cream

of Monday Michiru's 'Talk' (plus 1)12 tracks over 3 singles.Theres only 800
copies of each 12 so yo gotta be quick. Go !
28.clyde feat capital a -serve it up -mantis -uk 12''
took a bit of tracking down to pick this up but a little diggin in one of
londons finest second hand emporiums turned up this new 12 from Derby mantis
recordings.Capital a (a san francisco rapper who worked on king britts sylk
130 project & the jazzanova album)lends his subtle rap to clive astin's (as
clyde)production assisted by jane hamilton.Theres a brooks hip houser and Tony
Nwahchuku (attica blues)mix on a more tasty electronic tip on the
flipside.Original mix is the one but tony puts in a great effort.
29.Transporter - Glaze - Crippled Dick Hot Wax 2x 12''lp
Initially i was confused (and thats not hard....)as one slab of vinyl is
pressed at 33 and the other at 45rpm.Great album which is difficult to
classify....Don't sleep on this one..Check it out....
30.Pharrell - frontin - startrek - usa 12''
Soulful stuff with attitude .Cross over potential is presently winning many
fans including da forge an da peterson....must be the Neptunes production
which to me sounds rather...PHAT !
mix LP OF THE WEEK IS JAZZNOTJAZZ -'HIPHOP EXPERIMENT' selected by Breakthough
on KSR Japan.....SLUM...JAY DEE...REDNOSE DISTRIKT..SHADEZ OF BROOKLYN &
INVERSE CINEMATICS ALL RUBBING SHOULDERS AND SOUNDING GREAT....
