SMOOVE: Recorded Delivery

SMOOVE: Recorded DeliveryEight years after his original Jalapeno Records remix comp. First Class dropped, Smoove finally follows up with the sequel, Recorded Delivery. Eight years! Why the wait? Well that’ll partly be the small matter of writing, producing and touring the three Smoove & Turrell LPs that have come out in that time, all those live DJ sets and many of the remixes which are collected on this – so many in

NICOLE WILLIS & BANDA PALOMITA: I Call Your Name (SMOOVE remix)

NICOLE WILLIS & BANDA PALOMITA: I Call Your Name (SMOOVE remix)You’re Nicole Willis, you’ve got a brand new band (Banda Palomita), you’ve got a brand new musical bag that’s heavy on the 80s influences and you need a remix of your electro boogie single, I Call Your Name. So who you gonna call? No, not Ghostbusters! You’re going to call Smoove and get him to don his disco hat, and I think we all know that is a very ‘disco’ hat indeed. He’ll probably

JOHN TURRELL: The Kingmaker Remixed Pt 2

JOHN TURRELL: The Kingmaker Remixed Pt 2 When John Turrell got a well-deserved re-release of his solo debut album, The Kingmaker, last year on Jalapeno Records, it was surely only a matter of time before the remix package came out. Or rather packages since this is The Kingmaker Remixed Part 2. But where on earth was the singing half of Smoove & Turrell (the jewel in the crown of Jalapeno Records’ artist

IZO FITZROY: Say Something

IZO FITZROY:  Say SomethingRight, new Izo FitzRoy single out – Say Something. No, not you, doofus! That’s the name of the single! Third track off last year’s Skyline album, you may remember – rolls along on a cracking drum break, decorated with a jazzy bit of piano while FitzRoy lambasts an unsupportive lover in her bluesy rasp? What could improve on that? Well, the singles package

SMOOVE: Main Sourced 7″ audio premiere (2017) + Video

Rating: ★★★★★ Fans of that ol’ boom-bap will no doubt be familiar with a certain classic of the genre – Breaking Atoms – the debut LP from Large Professor’s crew, Main Source. A veritable samplefest, there’s no doubting its influence or the fact that it has stood the test of time. In fact it’s the sort of thing that the likes of Smoove have been aurally mainlining since it came out. That’s got to have an effect on a man, surely? Er – a little

PETE ROCK & SMOOVE: ‘Ghettos Of The Mind’ remix (2016)

Ghettos Of The Mind SmooveRating: ★★★★★ Ghettos Of The Mind by Pete Rock & Smoove? I thought it was Ghettos Of The Mind by Pete Rock &…ohhhhhh! You see what Smoove did there? Well – it does say ‘remix’. It’s Smoove’s tribute to that golden era of hip-hop when breaks were fat and lyrics were fly, of course. Which is why this remix features an epic strings n horns-drenched breakbeat to underpin Pete Rock and

WACK RECORDS 16: SMOOVE Nowhere To Go/ Return Of The Beats 7″ (2016)

Wack 16 SmooveRating: ★★★★★ If only at least one of the booty soul breaks cuts off Beatnik City’s epic Northern Breaks Vol. 1 could appear on vinyl sighed the monkey previously about said EP. Yeah – like that’s going to happen – Beatnik City are thus far digi-only. If only one of the dj/ producers involved had their own party breaks label and were all set up to do vinyl. Enter Wack Records (prop. one S. Moove) and Wack 16 – featuring a Vandellas-on-steroids

SMOOVE: For The Love Of 45s Smoove DJ Mix (2015) Free download

For The Love Of 45s DJ Mix SmooveSmoove parks all that neo-disco business for a minute and returns to his roots with a party-friendly, b-boy funk, hip-hop and latin mix that includes a number of cheeky one-off cuts (dubplate 45s one trusts) done especially for…well…For The Love Of 45s.. That’ll be one hour ten minutes of prime, fluidly-mixed, block-rockin’, old school action then. Well, I say ‘block rockin’ but
