    [review] Laura Vane & The Vipertones – Roof Off 12" (UNIQ 164)

    Posted on September 27th, 2009 by zephirnl

    I already mentioned them reminding me of ‘Gorillas in the mist’ in this tweet (in response to this tweet, in turn a response to this one). Now that the day has come to actually write something, let’s start from this comparison. Like gorrillas in the mist, Laura Vane & the Vipertones will hit you hard [...]

    [review] BadboE – Break the Funk (ad011cd)

    Posted on September 16th, 2009 by zephirnl

    It might seem simple to review this first BadboE full album release. I mean, it’s just a bunch of samples, rehashed and reworked with a funky breakbeat so it works better on the dance floor, right?
    Wrong.
    Yes, this album is full of samples. Yes, it is full of funky breakbeats. And hell yes, it will work [...]

    [review] Kylie Auldist – Made of Stone (TRUCD197)

    Posted on August 4th, 2009 by zephirnl

    Originally, this was intended to be a thorough front-to-back review similar to my recent Quantic & His Combo Bárbaro LP review. But two things have made me decide to make it a short, small review. The most important one is that all the writing I engage in should be aimed towards one goal, and one [...]

    DJ set 19-07-2009 @ ECU (SJU)

    Posted on July 28th, 2009 by zephirnl

    Recently I had the honour to entertain a bunch of singers and choirists (is that a word?) to get them to relax and enjoy themselves after some intense workshops and singing sessions. Although it was on a sunday, I tried to give the people of ecu2009 an energetic mix to let their feet catch up [...]

    [Review] Quantic and His Combo Bárbaro – Tradition in Transition

    Posted on July 2nd, 2009 by zephirnl

    A while ago I reviewed the 7″ single Linda Morena, by Quantic and His Combo Bárbaro. The song I based my review on back then actually was the album version of Linda Morena, instead of the much shorter single edit (8:29 vs 4:58). This will probably mean they have drastically reduced solo time, but [...]

    DJ set 27-06-2009 @ Jazz-A-Palooza (SJU)

    Posted on June 29th, 2009 by zephirnl

    The Jazz-a-palooza festival ended with the live funk explosion by the Rare Groove Orchestra, which incinerated the place and rained our pores. And from what I’ve heard it’s a pity I had to miss the Dutch Organ Group.
    So to our great pleasure we had the honor to finish the festival, and we poured out the [...]

    Posted on June 16th, 2009 by zephirnl

    It wasn’t crowded, but still a good time to funk out. Due to a human factors error in transferring the recordings, only the first half hour is preserved. But please enjoy!
    Don’t forget to drop by the 27th for the Jazz-a-Palooza afterparty, preceded by two dutch funk/groove monsters (DOG & RGO) we will groove that party!
    Track [...]
