African Bump

A great limited 12" just right for the xmas party season is from Tom Noble reknown disco/soul/funk/j-pop re-editer. This tight little track is brought to us by the Peoples Potential Unlimited record label, containing two great edits. Apparently its an unreleased record by obscure mexican group called "Grupo Santa Cecilia"...wicked!

Back in 2001 (before i moved over here,) I came to Japan at the request of the Audio Sutra record label (can`t believe it`s nearly 10 years already) who had organised a 5 city "make love not war tour" taking in Tokyo/Hiroshima/Kumamoto/Okinawa/Sapporo...During that tour there was one beautiful piece of sublime wax that was undoubtedly the "tune of the tour"

Dropped into the mix by that prodigious DJ/Producer Ian Simmonds who accompanied and headlined the tour. Stacey Pullen`s "Vertigo" a tune once heard loud over a quality sound system, bristled your emotional responses big-time. With the angelic-style female vocals over a deep bruken beat & hypnotic landscape of strings, the resulting sonic soundscape is powerful yet delicate.
(Pullen's claim that it reduced one listener to tears in the studio)
Is something i can attest to, i saw many a watery eye on that tour after this tune was dropped.

(big props to my man @ innersounds who dug up a copy for me)

Guest Mix - Drums & Other Funky Patterns

Another great guest mix this time from Musician/DJ/Teacher Soulspy Aka Max Schneider from uberkool Berlin. As well as producing music solo he also produces as one half of SoulPatrol in collaboration with Dj Michael Rutten releasing tracks on INFRACom & Compost records in Germany as well as providing music for the Nippon connection film festival.

With "Drums & Other Funky Patterns" Max delivers 76 minutes of pure jazz/funk joy!

Originally mixed quite a few years ago for a friend who wasn`t too partial to the music or so he thought....But with Max weaving his way thru such gems from Nina Simone, Max Roach, Prof Longhair and Eddie Bo, he undoubtedly became converted...Enjoy.

Funk in the Fridge

National holiday today here in Nippon and i`m feeling rather chilled and this just popped up in my musical subconscious. Written & Produced by Mark Pritchard & Tom Middleton AKA Global Communication, Link, E621, Reload, Secret Ingredients & Chameleon. "Maiden Voyage ep", released in `94 on the now de-funkted "Dedicated" label.
From the rainforest intro, the tune just grooves along at a leisurely funky pace....Beautiful and just so right!

I Am Your Mind

(artwork reproduced with kind permission from HVW8)
(all rights reserved)

I normally don`t like reworkings of my favorite jazz/funk artist the legendary vibraphone player Roy Ayers...but "I am Your Mind" by Parisian DJ/producer/remixer Pépé Bradock is an exception. Here his recontexualisation of the original piece of music with his own special style of subtle tweaking of the electronic knobs brings a sparkling brew of rhythm that invokes feelings of swaying through fields of sunflowers listening to that spiritual voice in your mind harmonising together, wanting to be your friend, wanting to be free, just listen to me.

Lifted from his unique collection of his finest remixes from the past decade, Pépé Bradock`s "Confiote De Bits/A Remix Collection" on bbe is an essential dose of music to have in one`s record box...Njoy!

Warp20 - Tokyo

Although they inspire a love/hate relationship with many in the electronic music scene, there is no doubt WARP records over the past 20 years have cut an imposing figure as one of the most influential independent record labels around. Already holding celebrational parties around the world, this weekend see`s the label take on conjunction with electraglide. Including in the line-up is the man from the "Rotters Golf Club" DJ Andrew Weatherall, and new acts such as Hudson Mohawke and the psychedelic hiphop of Flying Lotus.
I`ve always been a bit partial to Boards of Canada myself and this track from the recreated versions of Warp songs by Warp artists released on the box set that coinsides with the anniversary.

Golden Dream

In a vintage soundtrack studio somewhere in Paris previously inhabited by the likes of Nina Simone and Serge Gainsbourg and many others.
Mocky that chameleon-like cult figure of leftfield music, multi-instrumentalist playing drums, bass, rhodes, piano, guitar, percussion, bells, recorder, vocals, whistle, organ and toys as well as writing the string arrangements, produces a new future jazz/imaginary soundtrack/retro classic, that must be heard.
Equally soothing for the winter months or basking on sun drenched beaches..enjoy!

Definitely Not Forgotten!

Another little break taken here at mytea@om, many things had to be organised before the long winter hibernation that is life here in these northern climes of Nippon...Also its good to take a back seat once in a while and evaluate everything with fresh enthusiasm...Hope you all didn"t miss it too much!

I had become a wee bit nostalgic while away, crawling thru some dusty old classics and came across this gem from the early 90`s...From the boys that defined progressiveness. The Professor (Neal Barnes) and Pauly D, AKA LEFTFIELD. It has and always will be one of my greatest pleasures to have known them personally....They even helped us out when I and 2 co-founders started our own independent dance record shop around the same period....(big respex always to you boys)
This track was caned back then and could still get an airing today and give you goose bumbs!...Released on the Outer Rhythm label......enjoy!

As we move into that falling leaves time of year (well for some of us anyway) and today being my beautiful wife`s birthday, this post is dedicated to her.

22 year young

(check out his new Vacuum EP) An accomplished classically trained pianist since the age of 16, his jazzy synthed out retake of the early 80`s classic by Real To Reel - Love Me Like This is 8 minutes of pure future cosmic boogie/house bliss....Released on the UK`s EgLO/ r2 Records back in February, this track gets me all warm and fuzzy inside, a bit like my other half...Enjoy!

Lifted from his Capitol Records 1978 LP "New Warrior" but also released as a 7" promo..."groove, (aint no doubt about it)" is one of those tunes that used to rock the old london warehouse parties in the 8T`s..

After The Party!

The second choice porky prime cut this week and a second track from Connaisseur, is from Pol_On, called the "Omorp EP", on Outils Du Connaisseur. Pol_On are a project by Warsaw keyboard player DJ Mike P and Katowice Academy Of Jazz graduate and respected Jazz musician Kacper Bogacz. Their musical spectrum is present and wide, but always digs in and nods to the past. "After The Party" demonstrates Pol_On’s musical talent best. A smooth and timeless Jazzy House-cut with faultless live instrumentation. Once you hear the sax, it will stay in your head for ages…Double niceeee!!

United 8

No it`s not the number of goals that an opposing team will score against my beloved football club later today, but a cracking tune from 1972 given a well deserved re-press by Atlantic in 2004. "getting uptown (to get down)" is the kind of tune that you just can`t keep still when the ole plug-holes hear these vibes. With the shakers, tambourine, horns, guitar, drums all mashing together in one fine damn funky groove....enjoy!

The Elephant In The Room!

As we`ve reached the 8th anniversary of the 21st century’s most defining event so far, something to ponder from a couple of years ago but still relevent today.

The Elephant in the Room is a documentary following British filmmaker Dean Puckett through his journey into the 9/11 Truth Movement: a global movement of ‘alternative thinkers’ who believe that the official explanation about what happened on 9/11 is totally or partially inaccurate.

(The majority of the 9/11 Commission members have now publicly gone on record to express their conviction that the Bush government agreed to lie about the official story.)

The filmmakers travel from middle England, across Europe and to New York for the six year anniversary of the attacks, where the film takes one final twist as we are introduced to the 9/11 first responders who are suffering from various grave health difficulties due to the toxic dust that they breathed in trying to help their country during the weeks after this tragic event.

Told with a personal hands on approach that avoids advancing any one position, the film asks the question: are these crazy conspiracy thinkers? Or is 9/11 Truth a credible political movement?

You decide!!

Also available in 10 parts on YouTube

Conspiracy theory or hidden truth? The 9/11 enigmas..

"Gimme That Funk" # 17

Arguably one of the finest funk classics , The Eddy Jacobs Exchange "Pull My Coat", released on Columbia in `69 and later given a re-rinse on the Jazzman label, is a hard-groovin` drum snapping, JB`s styled number that has been smashing the underground funk & hip-hop scenes for years before 7" singles first started changing hands for silly money on t`interweb! (original copies going @ $125 large ones).....Enjoy!

Widedubz - Fire In The Dance

Something fresh for the weekend...A recent discovery i made from a multi talented DJ/Producer/Film Maker/Synth player from the UK named Dj Bustawidemove is this rocking little skanking (as yet un-released) number called "fire in the dance" (check out his myspace page for more quality tunes)

Originating outta the East-Side of London, Bustawidemove has been djing and producing music for over 10 years. Coming from a DJ/Sound System background. He cut his teeth DJing "Jungle" in the mid 90's with ledgendary sound systems Exodus and Headfuck. Being a big fan of the UK steppers scene he put aside his jungle selection and turned to Reggae, regularly playing at Reggae Roast parties in London. He`s also a member of the Live band Step 13.
Keep an eye on this guy cause there`s "big tings a gwan" from him in the future.

Busta has kindly allowed me to offer up the un-released tune here for y`all, so grab it while you can....respex my man!

Fire In The Dance download

He has been busy in the studio recently and is finally ready to step out with his own label wide dubz recordings . The first release "Soul soundmurder" featuring vocals from Lucy Randell (The Streets) is released on Monday 7th September from all good digital outlets....Already getting airplay on Radio 1/1Xtra in the UK.

Funky Flute

Coming on the flipside of Timothy McNearly`s own SHAWN label track "Funky Movement No.2". The Laid back flutey funk of "Sagittarius Black" is in my humble mind so much better. The intro flutey swells helps the drum beat kick in while the wah wah and the piano electric keeps it chugging along...So simple so nice! Given a 2008 re-issue on US funky label Truth & Soul
