Rain was back today after 2 days of glorious sunshine. I was away last week locked in iso with covid, but being free again, I was feeling sunny, so a 2-hour mixup of feel-good vibes. Returning to Egypt again (this week with a preview of the upcoming WeWantSounds label's 'Sharayet Harayet el Disco' anthology of Egyptian golden era cassette boogie & disco, we also jumped around the rest of the globe: from Japan to Barbados, South to West Africa, Stateside gospel-disco to provenance-vague jazz-dance. Ahead of soundtracking your Sunday roller skating sesh at Darling Square’s outdoor rink later this month, I threw in a couple of bounce-rock-skate-roll jams too. Hope you enjoy. Read More
