Miles Bonny “Forgotten Treasures Mix #12″

We try to do something a bit different than other mix series with our series called Forgotten Treasures. We ask artists we love to come up with a mix that is based on influences and is very personal. We are really happy to hav...

Forgotten Treasure: Baaska & Scavelli “Get Off The Ground – The Bottom End Version” (1976)

Widely regarded as the holy grail of the rare jazz dance scene, Baaska & Scavelli‘s “Get Off The Ground” is a track that is the very definition of a forgotten treasure! One of the most in demand and hard t...

Forgotten Treasure: Bennys Badekar “Blaekspruttesangen” Music by Hans-Henrik Ley (1971)

I was playing a guest set on the legendary WEFUNK radio show a couple weeks ago. After an hour of playing tunes and hanging out with Professor Groove (co-founder of the show with Static) I played a German Soul track which made ...

Forgotten Treasure: Luv You Madly Orchestra “Moon Maiden” (1978)

Telling someone that you’ve stumbled upon a track that sounds like an Arthur Russell disco joint is a very serious (if not blasphemous) claim, likely to be met with a heavy dose of skepticism and social rejection. It’s risk...

Forgotten Treasure: Tyree “Acid Over” Tyree’s Mix (1988)

A guaranteed late night stomper! 3 in the morning, Hunee on the decks at an after hour party in Montreal. It began with an acid bassline, and then the silvery piano stabs. I recall fellow MIMS collaborator Doc’Trin and I...

Forgotten Treasure: Two Man Sound “Que Tal America” (1979)

I’ve always loved this cheeky disco track, a really guilty pleasure for me. I found a copy in Toronto a couple years ago and I’ve been playing it ever since. The kind of cover or band name that you wouldn’t re...

Forgotten Treasure: Octave One “Blackwater” Strings Mix (2000)

I can’t remember the exact moment when I heard this track, but I know it was the soundtrack to my trip to Leeds two weeks ago. I could have been walking to the city, taking a bath, having a tea, or even absentmindedly convers...

Donnie & Joe Emerson "Baby" (1979)

Forgotten Treasure: Donnie & Joe Emerson “Baby” (1979)

Before all else, let’s just take a minute to mourn the bygone era of gold medallions, home-cooked slow jams, and matching Elvis jumpsuits. Donnie and Joe Emerson were teenagers when they put together Dreamin’ Wild. ...

Forgotten Treasure: Funky Rainbow “What I Want Is What I Get” (1979)

Who ever said that the US has the monopoly on great Disco Funk? This UFO all the way from Trinidad & Tobago circa 1979 is there to disprove that notion. I found this awesome record from Funky Rainbow in the 45′s colle...
