Kells, King of R&B, and Mr. Big Ron Isley together for the ultimate sexy-time croonathon! Honestly, what could be better?

Answer: not much.

Mtume – Prime Time

Everyone knows Mtume for Juicy Fruit, the track that Notorious BIG used for the backing of Juicy. What you might not have known is that there were plenty of other great songs by the band and that James Mtume, their founder, has a list song writing credits longer than something incredibly long indeed. You should be well aware of one of them, at least

As a side note I just realised that I’ve been pronouncing the band’s name incorrectly for a long, long time. Anyway, this tune’s wicked

Kids Sing Iron Maiden

Wish we sang this in my school. Wait for the guitar solo.

Grant Nelson – di5c0nn3ct

Lovely bit of rollin’ house from one of the most prolific producers I’ve ever come across. Good to see that Grant’s still putting out tracks after all these years. Will most definitely be grabbing this one next time I pick up a few tunes!

The Teardrop Explodes – The Great Dominions

Great moody ambient indie from way back in 1980. Headed by awesome nutter Julian Cope The Teardrop Explodes made some wicked post punk goodness. Love the beatless(ish) vibe on this one, really need to explore their back catalogue a bit further and discover a few more gems!

This comes from the “Killamanjaro” album which apparently originally going to be called “Everyone Wants To Shag The Teardrop Explodes”. I think we can agree that this is a much better title!
