Webster Lewis 'Do you believe' Live @ Club 7

About a year ago, I played this party at an old rough office space. It was the perfect enviroment; a tiny dark backroom with space for about 40-ish dancers. And it certainly one of the best nights all-time. It was one of those moments where you feel in complete control of everything. I could take anywhere, and a everyone would follow. And playing this track at 3.30 in the morning, and still keeping everyone with you is a one motherph-cking natural high. I tell you.
I didn't air all of its 17 minutes of glory, but a good 10 minutes.
So here you go. From the fairly recent Live at Club 7 LP, 'Do you believe' by Webster Lewis, recorded from the Club 7 in Oslo.

This is one reason why I still get a fantastic buzz from music!

Wilma Reading - Beginnings

Wilma Readings On Fire LP on dutch label CNR, is one of those records i've kept an eye on for a quite few years before finding it. Rarely comes up for sale, and usually on Japanese sites for a fairly high market price. It's more or less about 1 track, but what a track. First heard on one of Mad Mats fantastic compilations - High Jazz, which accordingly to some rumours also is the work of a Gothenburg based dealer.
Nevermind, the track - Beginnings, is a fantastic vocal jazz track for any party.
This is a vinyl rip from the original LP, therefore it's mono, it has some crackles. But you know what, - if you play this stuff from mp3, it needs some of the authentic dust anyway. So here you go

Shop mix

I rarely play records in stores, probably haven't done it in 10 years. Anyway, I was doing this gig on Friday night and had some hours to kill on the Saturday, and got booked for this shop. A huge room with, actually, a decent sound system. I don't think they normally get dj's who plays this kind of music; quite amusing watching the emo-kids and semi-hipsters to stroll around to Carmen Lundy.
These things tends to be quite tirening, so to stay focused I put my recorder on. So here you go; straight down to tape. Soul, jazz, funk, brasilian, bits of boogie and anything nice in between. We'll see if I can be bothered to pin down a playlist, after all there's about 2 hours of music...
