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!

Dâm-Funk speaks ‘from the gut’ | The Martlet

It’s overdue for funk music and everything related to it to have some respect now. We’ve come a long way from the rainbow Afros and platform shoes. It’s time to take this music more seriously without taking ourselves too seriously

Man… I read this article and saw a kindred spirit. One of the only peeps from  the nu-skool that’s reppin’ The Funk.

 

Gives me hope!

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.

 

Wilsoni’s BBC Playlister Playlist 29/04/2015


I’m a big radio fan, and my life soundtrack is pretty evenly split between my mp3s on shuffle and BBC 6 Music.

The Playlister is a great invention! In my formative years, my bedroom coated in a thick layer of post-it-notes and scribblings – an attempt to chronicle ear-grabbing audio. It’s a bit less tangible (which makes me a little sad), but a lot more convenient.

Here’s what piqued my interest throughout my radio bingeing sessions – and hopefully what will become a monthly feature.
