I was in a pretty funky mood for today's show and it came across in my playlist. I ended up playing loads of #funk with more than just a little support from some #deephouse, #nudisco and #indie.  'Track of the Week' for this week is an incredible mashup of Queen Vs Outkast / AC/DC / Snoop Dogg / The Beatles and Crowded House. It's been around for a while, but I love it so I ended up giving it top billing.

Better late than never I'm writing about my 'Track Of The Week' on Reelhouse FM from a few weeks ago. It was a superb Nudisco / Chillout track from 5 reasons called 'Miami Sunset' and it's released on the No Static label. This is what they have to say about it...

"5 Reasons are bringing the sunshine to the colder months of the year and getting ready to gear you up for some hot weather, sunshine and uplifting disco music. Miami Sunset is everything you would expect it to be from the prompting title, a perfect soundtrack for cruising around with the top down on a warm summers night. The track holds a perfect groove with that slightly funky edge giving you that smile that a great Nu Disco track should!"

I can't say it any better than that! It was released on March 11th and you can download it now here from Juno.  You can also listen to a sample of it below and slightly further down is a player where you can listen to the full radio show where it was originally the  'Track Of The Week'.  Enjoy!

You can listen to the full show now using the player below.  Full of cold I wasn't feeling too well (A.K.A. Hangover), but I still couldn't resist walking a cheeky dinosaur past some girls in the West End. Rambling I may be, but if you listen to my show it will make sense.  :-)

Better late than never I'm updating you on my 'Track Of The Week' from last Sunday's 'Ideal Friends' radio show on Reelhouse FM.  You can listen to the full show online so please check it out here now. The chosen track (drumroll!) is a superb Nudisco collaboration between  Phonetica and Soulemotion released on the Spacewalker Recordings label. 

Phonetica is a project of three lads from Latvia - Max Lomov, ZaZzy and Bogdan Taran. Soulemotion are a Latvian jazz / funk band. The track that I chose as my track of the week was their new EP 'Impossible Love' and in particular the Casio Social Club 'Acid Sunrise' remix of it. I'm not the only person who thinks it's good. Check out the review below taken from 4clubbers.net


"Classy and engaging It opens with a 303 style bass-line and precisely reverbed vintage percussion. The drums are quite light hearted under such a strong bass-line but they are grooved and shaped to perfection alongside the use of the original house piano. Everything about this is precise and interesting".

You can listen to a preview of it using the player below. Buy in on Juno to support the artist! 
 
 
My 'Track Of The Week' on this weeks 'Ideal Friends' radio show (listen to the full show and see tracklisting here) is a SUPERB #nudisco tune by Mexico's collaborators Bufi & La Royale . Released on the Electrique music label this a mid-tempo bomb featuring a future funk vibe, electric rawness and a dreamy pop aura. Sound good? You bet it is. Sublime is the word to describe the mellow funk / disco vibes and it's the perfect cool dance floor opener. You've got to listen to it... now!

My latest show was dedicated to Paul Simon (The album 'Graceland' was released last week in 1987) and as always it went down a storm. You can listen to it in full now using the player below. There's loads of nudisco, funk, deephouse and brokenbeat mixed up with Indie and lots more. Hiphop was even mixed into INXS (yes, the 80s rock band) and as always a classic retro Indie tune made an appearance.  Is that not enough?! Ok, will an appearance by Queen and Morecambe & Wise satisfy you? We're on then! 

Don't forget, you can listen to 'Ideal Friends' live and online (available worldwide) every Sunday 12pm - 2pm (GMT) on and it's broadcast on ReelHouse FM. Hope you tune in live!
