MIMS Forgotten Treasures Compilations


MIMS “Forgotten Treasures Compilation #3″

Here is third second compilation of  “forgotten treasures” which is – if you’re new here – one of the pillars of this website. We plan to put out one of these every month to go along with our monthly MIMS night in Montreal (every second saturday of the month at Belmont).

The idea is to ask our DJ and Producer friends to pick one track they’d like to share with you. The third volume has 16 tracks, some you might know about but if you’re like us, most you either didn’t know or completely forgot about. (Link for previous editions below)

16 beautiful pieces of music for you. Jazz, Soul, Techno, Brazilian, Boogie Funk… connecting the dots!

01. Clive Hicks – Think Twice (pick by PAUL NICE)
02. Spunk – La Bimini (pick by MOOVMNT)
03. Rasa – When Will The Day Come (pick by DJ EVO)
04. Terry Callier / Zero7 – Love Theme from Spartacus (pick by FRED EVERYTHING)

    Wow, an excellent compliation! Very educational. Aside from Rasa (whose Our Day Will Come LP is a regular in thrift store vinyl bins everywhere), Terry Callier and Elliott Smith, I was not familar with any of the artists on this mix. Happily, this comp made sure that like Clinton Sparks always says, “I got familiar”.

    Hipnotic’s Lonely Rhythm and Spin’s Beautiful Queenie are near-perfect grooves; never had a clue Dwele did a (really dope) remix of Natasha Bedingfield of all people; Dick Hyman’s moog rework of JB is insane; Clive Hicks’ library funk is up there with the greats of that era…man, I can go on and on…nothing but heat.

    I’m definitely going to look more into Jeff Phelps (the unknown precursor to Dam-Funk and Sa-Ra without a doubt) and Spunk (La Bimini is sublime).

    Please keep it comin’. The only thing better than great music is new and/or undiscovered music!

      Correction: The title of Rasa’s lone LP is Everything You See Is Me. For what’s it worth, When Will Our Day Come was always my favorite track of the album, along with Within the Sound. The great Anthony Jackson funks up WWODC (and many of the other tracks) via the bassline.
