Here's a show I did for Shoreditch Radio (www.shoreditchradio.co.uk) to see out 2011. For those of you who listen regularly you'll notice that this is quite a departure from the usual RARE GROOVE SHOW playlist.
There's always room for good hip hop which acknowledges its own soul and jazz roots. My favourite hip hop generally comes from the period 1993-1996 when sampling by A Tribe Called Quest, Pete Rock, DJ Premier and their contemporaries was at its best.
Listen, enjoy, comment!

I've decided to see the year out with some wintry vinyl vibes from Pharoah Sanders to Leon Ware.
In this rare instance I am providing a tracklisting. Do the right thing and do not download these tracks for free. Pay the artists and respect those who dig.

At www.shoreditchradio.co.uk each presenter was asked back in May 2011 to record an 'Artist Analysis' of someone who had been an inspiration to our respective shows. Four obvious names sprung to mind for THE RARE GROOVE SHOW: James Brown, Stevie Wonder, Roy Ayers and Marvin Gaye- the bedrock of jazz influenced soul music.
James Brown and Stevie Wonder went pretty quickly to other presenters. I didn't feel I could do something new with Roy on my turntable and mixer set up and I was also missing one or two rarer tunes. So I went- very happily- with Marvin Gaye who, of these four, was the singer I started listening to earliest. Marvin also reflected the melancholy mood I was under at the time due to 'flu and I knew which of his songs I'd start the tribute with. You'll hear in my voice that I was suffering with a heavy cold.
Here it is: Do tune in to THE RARE GROOVE SHOW- every other Wednesday on Shoreditch Radio and download other shows at www.shoreditchradio.co.uk

I came to disco fairly late. A Joey Negro compilation for Harmless Records first sparked my interest in bands such as Wood, Brass and Steel, The Universal Robot Band, First Choice and crossover artists such as Candido. Around the same time I also developed an interest in one of the most inspiring of all DJs- Larry Levan. A role model for any aspiring eclectic DJ, Levan would play literally anything and never allowed himself to be hindered by genre.
Since then I have begun to dig into labels such as Prelude, P&P Records, Salsoul and the major labels such as Columbia and Atco (part of Atlantic) that supported artists such as Ashford and Simpson who produced a succession of smooth quality disco hits in the late 70s. Patrick Adams is a producer I love and although his compositions don't feature heavily in this mix I will upload a Patrick Adams special in the future.
This mix was in three parts originally and formed a www.shoreditchradio.co.uk RARE GROOVE SHOW back in the week that Loleatta Holloway died during March 2011. I have spliced it together, as best I can, to become 1 hour long 'mix'. Loleatta features on the wonderful disco classic- Love Sensation.
I hope you enjoy it. Feedback or questions about the tracklisting is always welcome. If you wish to read in more detail about disco music then I recommend TURN THE BEAT AROUND: The Rise and Fall of Disco by Peter Shapiro.
Thank-you for your support.
