Wilsoni’s BBC Playlister Playlist – 30/07/2015


A couple of really great picks from the radio in July – despite the iPlayer Radio app removing the alarm function! Really screwed with my sleeping habits!
I terms of new stuff, Tame Impala obviously with some nice grooves, the new Beck track is catchy with a Fatback (though maybe lyrically a bit shallow in the chorus, eh?), a bit of Joni from my favourite album of hers, old acquaintance Chad Jackson’s No.1 blast from the past, and some delicious Rare Groove from Gilles’ show last Saturday.

Top pick of the month, though: Thundercat‘s new jam “Them Changes”. I LOVE this. Always keen to hear what Thundercat and FlyLo have got in store for us – the man’s virtuoso liquid vibes!

“Stand Up & Be Recognised!” played on Amazing Radio | 6th July 2015

Simon Raymonde seems to like my music (or his producer does, at least) as “Stand Up & Be Recognised!” was featured on his Amazing Radio show on Monday.

If you remember, Simon gave me my first radio airplay with “Empowerful Strut – WYSIWYG” on the same show in April.

You can listen to the show on Simon’s Amazing Radio page, or click here to jump straight to the part of the show where the song is played, around 4:30.


 The cool thing about Amazing Radio is that it’s for unsigned artists, and if a track gets a lot of attention on Amazing Tunes then it’s more likely to get radio play. So, you can find all my music at amazingtunes.com/funkmasta, and whilst you’re discovering your new favourite band you can give my stuff a ‘like’ or playlist it and I might get played again – I reckon it sounds much better squashed through the radio compressor!

Let me know what you think, leave a comment or message me on Twitter or Facebook.

Radio picks for another month. Not as many new tunes for June (that I picked up, anyway), but a few treats, including the Alabama Shakes single that I can’t quite decide what it is, but it’s definitely Funky.

Also, a track that I playlisted but couldn’t find on YouTube is “Pinch of the Death Nerve” by Leeds-based jazz-type outfit The Sorcerers. It’s great, got some nice Farfisa/Vox organ and dirty breaks. You can pre-order their album from Bandcamp – click here.
