Grace Jones – I’m Not Perfect (But I’m Perfect For You)

Aside from the well known tunes I’ve never delved too far into the Grace Jones back catalogue which I’m now regretting after hearing this slice of electronic 80s awesomeness. As suspected I just looked it up and it was produced by the one and only Nile Rodgers, a man responsible for more amazing beats than, well, anyone. Even though many people know lots of his tunes he actually doesn’t get the respect he deserves. Maybe I’ll do a few posts in the future of more underground songs he’s produced or ones that people might not be aware of.

Chaka Khan – I Know You, I Live You

Chaka Khan is amazing, she’s recorded so many great tunes yet somehow this is a fairly recent revelation to me. Everyone knows the hits so I hope I don’t need to educate anyone there and of course you all get down to I Feel For You when it goes the jukebox but have any of you actually listened to the album it’s from in full? No? Then do so immediately, there are some killers on there!

Anyway, this is one from 1981 and has a chorus that I can never get out of my head. What a riddim.

Logic – Jazzy Hip Hop Instrumentals Mix

Haste – Live at Off The Record – 28/9/2013

I played a vinyl only jungle set on the 28th September at one of my favourite bars in London, Camden’s Lockside Lounge, for Off The Record. I generally play with a laptop now when I’m out and about (it’s been a while since I’ve played old skool anywhere) so it was nice to play some proper records. I definitely didn’t miss the transportation side of things, though.

The crowd were just a Saturday night bar crown so I wasn’t able to dig too deep, hence a few anthems in here amongst a few others that I thought might work well. The first tune was actually Seiji‘s last one, he played a wicked set of various bits and bobs including some lovely classic house and garage.
