Looks like we did it Nigeria.

Post election and we are still in one piece(ish). One for the history books!

Things are looking good for future funk producer, Onra. His next album ‘Fundamentals’ is set to be released in May. I’m a big fan of his stuff as he is a master of reworking underrated gems from the 80s.

Teaming up with rapper Daz Dillinger and the ever cool and groovy Olivier Daysoul, ‘Ridin’ is a fresh spin on the west coast sound that we all know and love from the 90s.

Driving around with your top down and sunshades are well advised when playing this record.

Enjoy.

So we are half we through the week which is a good thing because I need to sleep a ton on Saturday. Seriously, the media hustle is real. Feeling a need for some soul, I had to brush up this classic by Womack & Womack. It’s called ‘Baby I’m Scared of You’, from their 1982 album titled Love Wars.

The funky bass, tight conga drums and airy lyrics are just right to get through the day ;D

Our soundbite of the day comes from the funk cat, Jay Kay, the enigmatic front man of the British funk/acid jazz band Jamiroquai. Too Young To Die was their second single from their debut album, Emergency on Planet Earth. The original version runs for 10:18 but was cut for the album version.

One of my favourite DJs, Late Night Tough Guy (LNTG) transforms the classic, giving it a summery laid back groove while at the same time staying true to the original.

I know a daddy to be in Uganda who will be dancing up a storm to this one!
