Another 2-hour Jumping The Gap mix-up, today we were trucking new tracks from bugged-out-in-the-attic future-funk keyboardist Kaidi Tatham, L.A.'s fidget-funkster Johnny Kosmo, Composter DJ Rasoul, West-African Bandé Gamboa and more of that STR4TA LP on Gilles Peterson's Brownswood label, plus fresh holy grail reissues by Kenny Mann with Liquid Soul, reggae-boogie one-timer Michael Paul, Armenian Harout Pamboukjian and Venezuelan jazz-fusion collectable Esperanto. From Guadeloupean goodies to Stateside funk, kooky French covers, disco, house, Afro and jazz-freakouts. Read More

Jumping The Gap :: 12:00pm 7th Apr 2021

Today's 2-hour mix Included new singles from Dimitri From Paris, multitudinous London outfit Soothsayers (remixed by fave mod-dub producer Prince Fatty no less) alongside the finally-released debut STR4TA LP conceived by Gilles Peterson and Incognito's Bluey, and a fresh reissue on Afrosynth Records by Sth Africa's Captain Mosez. So we ditched the train and jumped in the Captain's aeroplane to jetset from Panama to Philadelphia, sunny Florida to sometimes-sunny Sydney, Rio De Janeiro to Lancashire. Expect anything from Salsa to Soul, disco to house and dub. Gee - even the dearly departed David Bowie and Homo-Erectus orgasm-addict Pete Shelley get their unexplained toes in the dancing circle!

Today's 2-hour JTG mix refuses to concede summer's over in the southern hemisphere. So join me pool/puddle-side in rainy ol' Sydney where everything from sunny highlife polyrhythms to swoon-worthy Armenian disco-funk skinny-dips with Stateside boogie, soul and percussive house. New releases today include Menahan Street Band, Young Pulse teaming up with Sth African vocalist Natalie Nova, DJ City and Paul Older (on the Public Possession & Slightly Transformed labels respectively), the latest album from A Certain Ratio on Mute, a fresh Athens of The North single and tasters from the wonderful Silk Road: Journey Of The Armenian Diaspora 1971-1982. So shed some/all your clothes and dance with me. Read More
