ALL HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
'Hope' CD - profits to children of Iraq. If you haven't got your copy already - where have you been? Features Bassment Jaxx & Yellowman loving and dubbing the world up on 'Love Is The Answer'
A Guy Called Gerald 'Black Secret Technology' and 'Essence' (if you haven't already got them). Drum n' bass masterpieces.
Sasha 'Airdrawndagger' - mainly breaks and some heart-stoppingly
beautiful, ethereal moments, Sasha has managed to craft an album that satisfies intensely both the old-school and the new generation of breaks/ progressive house heads!
Funky Monkey 'Join Us In Tomorrow'. Funk, dance, Sarah Cracknell guest spots and a cover of Stevie Wonders 'Saturn'
DJ magazine (30 may - 12 jun edition) World Series mix CD - breaks from Australia mixed by Phil K. Hear the (r)evolution going on in Australia making it breaks capital of the world (according to a lot of dance music journos and I'd have to agree with them). Features the 'Pacific' of Australia, 'Summer Breeze' by The Free Radicals (a tune that'll almost certainly make you cry it's so beautiful)
Jazzie B 'The Africa Centre'. A mix of tunes that used to get the Africa Centre (the place where Soul II Soul started) going right off!
Layo and Bushwacka! 'Night Works' Quality, quality breaks. Let The Good Times Roll...
I've not heard them yet but people are 'raving' about the new albums by Hybrid, Plump DJ's and UNKLE
Global Undergrounds - Dave Seaman Melbourne, Deep Dish Toronto, Nick Warren Rekjavik and any Tenaglia
Anthony Pappa - Global Underground Nubreed
Destinations Du Monde 003 - Manchester (funky, yet chilled - perfect Mancunian grooves for a summer up North!)
I could go on and on but these are a few of my favourite things!
There's certainly a lot of brilliant music being made.
