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.

With my 'Ideal Friends' radio show dedicated to David Bowie, my set ended up heavily 80s and 90s influenced with remixed classics from Major Tom himself, as well as other edits from the likes of Frankie Goes To Hollywood and Yes. Plus, classic HipHop tunes from Chad Jackson (Hear The Drummer Get Wicked) and Jurassic 5 (Concrete Schoolyard). All this as well as the usual choice cuts of brand new funk, nudisco, indie, breaks, deephouse and folk. Not to forget a jazz / funk / dub version of the classic 80s rock track from Berlin 'Take My Breath Away'. Want some Elvis Presley? He made it onto the playlist as well.

Check out my latest 'Ideal Friends' radio show originally broadcast live last Sunday. You can listen to it in full using the player below and l dedicated the whole gig to Sir George Martin, legendary Producer of The Beatles. He was born 3rd January 1926 - Happy 87th Birthday! The show featured the usual blend of brand new hiphop, funk, indie, breaks, beats, downtempo and nudisco alongside classic tunes from The Stone Roses, The Beatles and The Chemical Brothers. I even mixed together a breakbeat version of The Prodigy's 'Poison' into the classic 1979 soul / disco Randy Crawford hit 'Street Life'. Top notch!
