Wilsoni’s BBC Playlister Playlist – 30/09/2015


I swear, I’m tagging so many tracks from 6 Music that I can’t keep track of potential doubles in these playlists? But it’s cool – it’s all good listening!

Some Really Heavy Grooves this month, too many to mention – T.S.S. Groove, Gary Clarke, Jr., Tuxedo, Kate Tempest, The Souljazz Orchestra… Plus some heritage tips from the likes of Shuggie, Sly, Liquid Liquid and Jimi, and the Theme from The Warriors to celebrate the gang coming out to play in Coney for one last time earlier in the month Even some reggae thrown in for good measure 😀

Enjoy. Stick it on in the background, and try to stop your toe tappin’.

 

Wilsoni’s BBC Playlister Playlist – 28/08/2015


Here’s your lot from August. Bit of 1st World Problem this month as the BBC updated the iPlayer Radio app and removed the alarm function (click that link and read the comments, if you’re interested – I’m not the only person who was a bit miffed about it), so I’d been having a hard time listening during the week ’till they brought it back. Good thing it’s all about Funky Saturday – Huey, Gilles, and Craig Charles.

Anyway, a lot of classics in this month’s playlist – Rick James, AWB, Esther Williams… a few I got hipped to from playing GTA in Uni from the likes of The Pointer Sisters, Galaxy… Some selections from the week David Lynch was on promoting his curation of the Meltdown Festival on the Southbank… And one of my all-time favs in the form of “Skin Tight” by the Ohio Players.

Pick of the month – it’s gotta be “We Continue” by Dam-Funk. The album’s due to drop on September 4th.

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!

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.
