Wow. What a dream team of two generations of funk-lovers. SOUL CLAP flew in GEORGE CLINTON for a three-day session and this is what came out if it (well, there will be more!): A monster FUNK JAM called “Peep this”, you have to listen to. Premiered on Gilles Peterson’s radio show yesterday! The track also features Nick Monaco (production), G Koop (bass) and Greg Paulus (trumpet).

Sydney’s Plastic World are slowly turning into my favorite Australian electronic-pop label. After bringing us Retiree and GL, they now follow up with Savoir. I must say it was instant love that I felt for Retiree and GL, but it took two songs to make me a fan of Perth band Savoir. New track “eternal” is such a great tropical, smokey slice of percussion-heavy african-influenced modern, electronic disco, it made my day. “Eternal” comes as a 12 Inch together with “Malala” on november 24th.
Hey! This feels alright! First time you and me heard Nate Salman’s voice is on the track “Why” by Chaz Bundick’s (Toro Y Moi) dance project LES SINS. He also has his own band in California called The Waterstriders. But now for the first time he decided to give it a go on his own. The first solo-track he is sharing is a very beautiful electronic indie-soul track that Nate thinks of as “a remedy for days when it feels like we’re waiting for the world to end”. Listen and you get what he means. Really hoping there is more to come.

Oh la la. This is crazy! TOTAL GIOVANNI is a spaced-out disco-crew of 5 charismatic weirdoes from Melbourne: Spike Punch, Vincenzo Del Negro, Shidi Amin (aka Sideboard Ford), Cavallo Nero (aka Hornelle Equinox) and Shattered Guru (aka Jingle Bello). Together they finally release their first track on uebercool Melbourne label Two Bright Lakes. Imagine LCD Soundsystem produced by Nile Rodgers and you are not halfway there!
