It’s my last few hours in Stockholm, and so I need something to keep my spirits high along my journeys back to London. I’m starting to get an itch to leave the big smoke for somewhere even colder. Call me mad. Anyway, this remix by Lewi-P is funky and fresh and a great way to start the week.
This is such a feel good mix of sounds- if you’re into your Prince and Jamiroquai you will love, love, love this. Download this free cheeky bootleg from Jem Stone that’s been causing major damage in his sets of late. SexyMuthaFlapper is laced with Jem’s current electro-swing vibe, as can be heard on the ‘Jem Stone’s Perpetual Lotion‘ EP, out now on Freshly Squeezed.
Always a sliver lining at the end of a shitty week! Jamroquai came on my doorstep and gave me a massive smile. It’s sad that you’re into someone that much but it has been yonks since he last released anything. The artwork is sexy as fuck (albeit a paper case, which always makes me feel like an album is in ‘transition’ rather than ‘here to stay’). Going to upload it on iTunes and hit the gym!
He does the best album covers, don’t you think? Apparently the photo above was taken at the Hard Rock Calling festival that was in London earlier this month (which I was at, so maybe my head will be in there somewhere!). The deluxe edition is in the post right now… Super excited! I really hope I win tickets to his gig at Jazz Cafe next month. That would be the best thing ever!
Above is the full version of White Knuckle Ride. Yea! Also, you’ve got 6 days left to listen to Jamiroquai on BBC Radio 1. Skip to the 1hr55 mark to hear the interview and 2hr22 to hear the full song again. Funky to the max. Check out some clips from his recent London gig here.
Words cannot describe how amazing this gig was. I don’t think anything will top what I witnessed last night at Club Debut. This was a warm-up gig for Jamiroquai’s appearance at Hard Rock Calling in Hyde Park on Saturday. The bass on ‘Little L’ is just out of this world! Rock Dust Light Star is a new track from their upcoming album- hear a snippet of new single ‘White Knuckle Ride here.
Tickets for an intimiate gig in London with Jamiroquai on the 24th of this month (next Thursday) go on sale TODAY (15th) at noon on his website. It’s in a tiny venue in London Bridge and something like 1000 people ‘liked’ his Facebook status when he announced the gig last week so good luck getting tickets! If you don’t manage to get tickets then you can still catch him next Sunday at Hard Rock Calling in Hyde Park with Stevie Wonder. UPDATE: I’ve uploaded some really good videos from this gig here!
