Soul Kitchen 10 (V1 Part I) – The ‘Raindrops’ Mix

I have captured the signal, and subsequently triangulated the vectors, transduced the amplitude modulation via the concavity of my ears, and compressed the data down in order to express it as a function of my music collection.

Soul Kitchen 09

This month’s mix is a nod to the cassette counter-culture with two mixes for two sides.

Side A is a rather chilled out affair, and brings Black Sabbath together with Dusty Springfield, and Common.

Side B picks things up, and moves into Disco and House territory with some great remixes and re-edits from years gone by.

Enjoy the virtual mixtape, which is dedicated to my brother for two reasons. First, he is celebrating his birthday this month, and second, he had more cassettes then I did when we were kids. That is until I got a job, and started spending all my money on music…

01 = Planet Caravan – Black Sabbath
02 = Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere – Neil Young

Soul Kitchen 06 – The ‘Scribble’ Mix

Flying on a diet of re-cycled breath, watching cities shrink, the sky wraps around us.  Leave letters of love and devotion, disconnect some basic emotion and jump to the groove, pumped up strobes and smoke.  Dance in to the dark but don’t cross the white line, it’s a long way down on the other side.

Soul Kitchen 04 – The ‘One Note Samba’ Mix

‘One Note Samba’ was originally written and performed by Antonio Carlos Jobin in 1963 on his classic Bossa Nova album ‘Jazz Samba’. Fast-forward three years and, in an effort to step-up record sales, Sergio Mendes hired a new singer (Lani Hall), switched record labels and released ‘Sergio Mendes And Brasil ’66’, which contained the cover version of ‘One Note Samba’ included in this mix. With the support of his friend and mentor, Herb Alpert, the album was a huge success and sold over one million copies.

The song has been covered numerous times since Sergio Mendes’ “little samba built upon a single note” and is a favourite late-night tune amongst DJs who know that “other notes are sure to follow but the root is still that single note”.

Soul Kitchen 03 – The ‘E=MC2’ Mix

The third installment of Soul Kitchen is here and features the best new tunes in my ever-expanding musical collection. This month’s mix features one of my personal favourites from the 80s – ‘E = MC2’ by Big Audio Dynamite.

After Mick Jones left the Clash he formed BAD as a vehicle for his varied musical interests including, Punk Rock, Dance music, Hip-Hop, Reggae and Funk. Their first album, ‘This Is Big Audio Dynamite’, featured the single ‘E=MC2’, which is regarded as one of the first songs to make use of the emerging sampling technologies. The song contains snippets of dialogue from several of Nicolas Roeg’s 1970s films such as, ‘Performance’ (starring Mick Jagger) and ‘The Man Who Fell To Earth’ (starring David Bowie).

This month’s track listing is:

01 * A Fool In Love (Edit) = Ike & Tina Turner
02 * You’ll Never Find (Dub Version) = Dub Pistols ft Rodney P
03 * I Don’t Know (Fusion Region Mix By Mitsu) = Steppah Huntah
