Im Glad That Youre Here Don Dayglow Ewan HoozamiJazz fusion drummer Alphonse Mouzon was perhaps not the most likely person to release late period disco hit I’m Glad That You’re Here in 1981 but he clearly wasn’t a man to be pigeonholed.

CHRISTIANA: Lights More Lights (MANOSJMT edit)(2017) Free download

Lights More Lights Christiana ManosjmtNot a man to sit idly and twiddle his thumbs when it’s colder than an inuit’s outside toilet, Manosjmt has been having a fiddle around with 70s and 80s Greek folk singer Christiana.
