Forgotten Treasure: Mike & The Censations – There Is Nothing I Can Do About It (1966)

Wowza. This discovery just makes my day… I just shared my “future classic” pick of the day, a really great Nicolas Jaar remix of this track. I instantly wanted to dig out the original which wasn’t easy to find because the remix EP had no official credits and didn’t have …

Forgotten Treasure: El-B “Serious” (Zed Bias Remix)

If you are a regular MIMS reader you know all about my undying love for UK Garage and 2step. And if you know about that you probably know that El-B and Zed Bias are my favorite producers on the rougher side of those riddims. I also love tons of others …

Forgotten Treasure: Kadenza “Let’s Do It” (1982)

What an absolute killer 80’s boogie track from 1982 out of the UK. Let’s Do It by Kadenza was released by PRT Records (previously known as Pye Records) and up until Niles from Moovmnt.com (awesome site, check it out!) posted about this, I had no idea about this gem! Not …

Forgotten Treasure: Howard Jones “Like to get to know you well”

Holy crap what a glorious piece of 80’s cheese! I was too young when this came out (1984) to remember this but it’s just the kind of song that you’ve heard a couple times in your life, maybe at the hair dresser, in a taxi cab, something like that. Anywhooo. …

Forgotten Treasure: Benis Cletin “Jungle Magic” (1979)

Loving this one because it’s a great pick for both my daily selections. It is both a forgotten treasure (originally released in 1979) and a future classic because since it has just been reissued for a whole new generation to hear. A pair of killers from Sofrito to wreck the …

Forgotten Treasure: Art Blakey & The Jazz Messengers “Ping Pong” (1961)

An absolutely essential dance floor jazz nugget for you all today. My good homie Andy Williams put me on to this track from Art Blakey, arguably one of the best and most influential drummers in the history of jazz! During the early ’60s, Art Blakey & The Jazz Messengers were …

Forgotten Treasure: Ti-Paris “Ti-Paris et sa guitare”

I have a lot of memories that revolve around music and my family.  The most beautiful ones, are those with my grandfather. He is a lover of the Haitian music and generally, the music of the Caribbean. The summers at his place and when he puts his hawaian shirt all unbuttoned one …

Forgotten Treasure: Eddie Hinton “I Can’t Be Me”

Eddie Hinton fits right into to the Forgotten Treasures section. I didn’t know about him at all until I read a little story about “Blue Eyed Soul” today, a term that media came up with for white artists who sang R&B… Yeah, it was a different time I guess. But …

Forgotten Treasure: Parliament “Funkentelechy” (1977)

Since it’s George Clinton’s 70th Birthday the Forgotten Treasure pick of the day had to be at least one from the absolutely insane 50 year catalog from Dr. Funkenstein himself. This track is taken from the 1977 Funkentelechy Vs. the Placebo Syndrome album, arguably one of the best of the …
