7 Day Weekend – Party Monster


7 Day Weekend comes from the land down under with a electroclash, Art School rap, new wave sound.   This song is tongue-in-cheek fun.    



Recloose – Dust (ft. Joe Dukie)


Protege of Carl Craig, released this single with lead vocals by Joe Dukie.   Track has a mixture of Afro beat, dub, house, soul and a splash of pop lyrics.   Gilles Peterson named this tune the track of the year for 2006.

Here’s a video from another track from Recloose called “Mana’s Bounce”


Candie Payne – By Tomorrow


Candie Payne hails form Liverpool and has that revival Motown sound I love, think Amy Winehouse and The Pipettes meets St. Etienne.   This track would fit nicely on a James bond sound track, I’m of course taking about a 1960’s Sean Connery, “BOND, JAMES BOND” version.
