Fitzzgerald | Human Drizzle: The Mixtape, March 2016

Our good friends over at Wotnot Music have some exciting plans ahead. With releases on the horizon from K15 and Alphabeats Heaven, and appearances from Mono/Poly and Body San in sight too, 2016 looks set to be a fruitful year to say the least.

Continuing to champion the very best in fresh new talent, their first release this year comes from the Belarusian producer and DJ Fitzzgerald. The London-based label has done us a solid and let us air his excellent, fun-filled mix to coincide with said release. It’s just shy of 50 minutes of vintage disco, funk and boogie courtesy of S.F.B and Patchworks, alongside some more jazzy sounds from Funktion and Jack J amongst others. It’s bound to get your Fridays movin’:

You can check out ‘Genius Of Love’ below, the first cut from the ‘Far From Here’ EP which hit the shelves today. The shuffler of a tune builds around bouncing synth chords and live drums, and it sits nicely with the eclectic sounds of the two other tracks on the EP – there’s Bollywood disco on the ‘Indian Breakfast’, and some funk-infused blues on the Forrest Gump-sampling ‘You Wanna Chocolate’. Both very nice.

Head over to the Wotnot site to grab a copy.

Motor City Drum Ensemble & Young Marco @ La Belle Electrique, Grenoble

Two of the finest selectors around gathered in Grenoble’s La Belle Electrique last weekend so we thought we should pop by.

Young Marco has been making a name for himself this year as an unpredictable crate digger as likely to play industrial techno as intergalactic disco. The enthusiastic Dutchman decided to open and close the night, throwing out Fatima Yamaha and Floorplan classics mixed in with this unbelievable piece of Brazilian Funk from 1977:

The pattern of obscure world music would continue unabated as Danilo Plessow tagged in for the small hours. He provided a lesson in joining the musical dots between funk, disco, house, soul and pretty much everything else. Some highlights included funky house from Bosq of Whiskey Barons and the finest in Estonian afro-house from Ajukaja. Tuck in to a snapshot of our evening.

Oxford – Mirage 84 (Neptune Safari remix)

No vocals on this one, just a very casual four minutes of slowed-down disco-funk for your listening pleasure this fine Tuesday morning. We know little about Neptune Safari, apart from the fact that he’s from France and he obviously spends far too much time in the sun. Back in April he had a go at remixing Lifelike and Kris Menace’s track ‘Discopolis’ – again showing off his impeccable production skills and creating another feel-good jam.
