Funky Friday

It's been a few weeks since I've posted, due to a general disinterest in writing and having other things to do - like play with the kids, or watch Around The Horn and PTI, or veg to CNN and so on and so forth. I have still been consuming as much music as before, I just haven't felt the urge to tell you about it. Well, that changes today with this funky Friday playlist.

Dinosaur L - #1 (You're Gonna Be Clean On Your Bean) - from a nice expanded reissue of 1981 LP 24→24 Music, this is some Arthur Russell art funk at it's best.
Dondolo - Dondolisme - seriously '80s flavored synth pop from France. Magnifique.
Underworld - Crocodile - from the forthcoming album, this is a pretty typical Underworld track with an absolutely monstrous bass riff.
MC 900 Ft. Jesus - Killer Inside Me - demented hip hop from the early '90s.
Felix Da Housecat - It's Your Move - a taster from the new Virgo Blaktro & The Movie Disco.
Heliocentrics - Distant Star - stellar space funk from the SF crew's debut Out There.
Imagination - Flashback - a nice slice of early '80s British soul with falsettos set on stun.
Jill Scott - Hate On Me - from her new album, this is definitely one of the tougher cuts.
Just Jack - I Talk Too Much (featuring Kylie Minogue) - a catchy slice of Brit hip pop with the lovely Kylie cooing along.
Duran Duran - My Own Way (Night Version) - this is one of my fave remixes ever. DD re-recorded this, adding huge strings and the big disco pacing. JT's funky bass on this is truly astounding.
