Three on a Thursday #174


First camping session of the year done, followed by kids birthday parties and other craziness – I’m glad I’m back to listening to tunes tbh, it’s a lot less hectic!

If you like what I do here, then catch me playing at For The Love of Music over in Gloucester in July – many of the tunes I’ve pimped will no doubt be played there.

Firs track this week comes courtesy of the Mukatsuku label. I’ve long loved their eclectic mix of Afro and Cuban tinged disco, odd reggae covers and the occasional blinding funk stomper (I’m looking at you Chiswick All-Stars) and this weeks recommendation soundly falls into that last category.

The Soul Grenades have taken Daft Punk, Nile Rodgers & Pharrell Williams modern classic Get Lucky and spun it into a raucous brass drenched tornado of New Orleans style funk – Louie Louie on the flip ain’t bad either.

As ever, it’s Mukatsuku, so it’s vinyl only … go find it on Juno.

I love me some High Focus – this lot have been smashing out some of the best British hip-hop for a good few years now, and the latest from Ronnie Bosh, You Know, is up there with some of their best – the Dirty Dike beat on it is obscene!

Last one this week is some good old fashioned funk from Roscoe & Friends. Originally released in 1965, Barnyard Soul is a solid slice of classic New Orleans style good stuff, and is the only release I can find from Roscoe Bowie, who was better known as a writer and arranger for The Carltons and The Ascots.
