Jumping The Gap :: 12:00pm 6th Oct 2021

Sydney turned on another glorious sun-filled day today and the sky was blue from ear-to-ear (for those lying on their backs in the park) so summer vibes aplenty in this 2-hour mix, whether African, tropical, disco or whacky funk. The new album from Brits MF Robots (released this week) got a run, as did the newly reissued 1984 Netwerk LP, plus Da Lata's superb Brasilian-influenced latest single, Jules Habbib's new Basement Membrane project out of Melbourne and Italian Nicola Conte with Gianluca Petrella. Plus flashbacks to a fave from Boz Scaggs, Harari, Tyrone Davis and more. Lockdown's almost over... Hurray! Read More

Jumping The Gap :: 12:00pm 22nd Sep 2021

Been listening to lots of Cuban music again lately, so how wonderful to get a brand new single this week from ORQUESTA AKOKÁN (remember when they played Sydney a few years back with likeable showman José “Pepito” Gómez at the helm?). We let them open the show today and also served up some more Latin rhythms, including the new album from Sydney's polyrhythm firebrands OYOBI. There was also the new Under The Influence to play a few tracks from, plus other funk, boogie helium-soul, fresh house (from Croatia) and queer disco... Hope you enjoy the replay while you picnic/dance in Sydney. Read More

Jumping The Gap :: 12:00pm 15th Sep 2021

Soul-funk/boogie treats from Indonesia today as we previewed an upcoming collection by DJ Munir (Midnight Runners) on Cultures of Soul, called 'Tanamur City'. Newies too from Mancunian soul man Victor Haynes, Digital Afrika on Carl Cox & Christopher Coe's Melbourne label Awesome Soundwave, fresh GAMM remixes, and Tramp's 45-repressing of the otherwise expensive Teresa Harris & The Gene Parker Quintet 7". It features the crazy but loveable Teresa Harris workout 'U.F.O.' on the flip, but we opted for her beautiful 'Good-Bye'. Alongside are Afro, disco, boogie, Lebanese & tropical rhythms, plus a '90s British house flashback featuring legendary vocalist Loleatta Holloway taking Paul Weller's cathartic mood-lifter 'Shout to the Top' to heavenly... tops.
