So I’ve returned from a great weekend in London where I got to see two of my favourite artists of all time – Mr Booker T Jones & Stevie Wonder. I also managed to spend some time dj’ing with my soul sister Corrina Greyson in Joe’s Bar, Camden which was a thoroughly enjoyable evening of music & dance and highly recommended if you’re in the Camden area of a Sunday evening.
So onto today’s selection and for the first time in a while a cool little piece of nu-funk courtesy of Brighton’s Baby Charles. Some of you might know of the band due to their 2009 cover of The Arctic Monkey’s “I Bet You Look Good On The Dancefloor” which received regular radio airplay. The band released 4 singles (3 of which were on one of our favourite modern labels – Record Kicks) between 2006 – 2009 as well as an eponymously titled LP in 2008.
The record I have chosen to feature today was released in 2008 and is the b-side of “Hard Man To Please” and featured on one of the excellent “Soulshaker” compilations also released on Record Kicks. This is a great instrumental funker perfect for the dancefloor, make no mistake.
Just a little reminder for those of you who might have missed it but my “Soul Party” radio show returned last Thursday night.
