Future Classic: SiR “Seven Sundays”

I get so mad at myself when I let great releases fly right under my nose to only realize a few weeks later that i’ve been caught snoozing! That is the downside of having a 1000 of music releases a week vs about 50 a week (all styles combined) in …

Version Excursion: “I’m Back For More” (Original by Leo’s Sunshipp)

A couple months ago I shared my fascination with Leo’s Sunshipp only record (read more), the underrated Soulful 4 track EP titled “We Need Each Other”. It’s tragic that there are only these few songs from them but the sheer beauty makes up for it. One of the EP’s beautiful easy …

Forgotten Treasure: Outlaw Four “Million Dollar Legs” (1980)

As a DJ, it’s not always easy to share records that you discovered years ago, while digging on your knees in a dusty basement. But then you remember that all the glory should go the the creator (I don’t mean God) and not the DJ/Collector. I’ve mentionned it before but …

I’ll always have a special place in my heart for the classic Beach Boys records from the 60’s, it’s the music I remember discovering through my dad when I was a 10 year old kid. As I grew older I was able to start to fully appreciate the depth of …
