DJ Shan Presents Groove Therapy feat. CERRONE – 2nd June 2023

Today on the program OB and I are truly in the company of greatness as French disco legend CERRONE joins us on the show. I take a deep dive into his classic breakbeat “Rocket in the Pocket”, we chat about his work with The Kongas, Don Ray, Lene Lovich, and Jocelyn Brown – AND he even jumps into the mix to give us a glimpse of the what we can expect ahead of his first Australian visit next week.

Let me know you’re tuned in…

I love to know that you and your friends are listening to the show. Hit me up on the email with any shoutouts and requests. I might not always get to them through the program, but I’ll always do my best to mention you in the coming weeks.

Classic of the week…

Version excursion…

This week I do a deep dive into one of the most sampled drum breaks “Rocket in the Pocket”, which I first discovered through its use in so many early Hip Hop tracks in the 1980s – Interestingly, it was several years later that I realised the drum loop I was so familiar with was in fact being sampled at the completely wrong speed as it was favoured at the 45 RPM speed rather than it’s original speed on 33 RPM.
