WILLIE WEST: Fairchild (ZEMERALD DJ edit) – Free download

WILLIE WEST: Fairchild (ZEMERALD DJ edit) - Free downloadIt seems like a long minute since there was a free download on the ground at MB – and an equally long minute since we saw anything from Zemerald – a man with a good ear for a funk edit if ever there was one. In fact the last time was four years ago (!) and even then he was saying he didn’t have the time for music that he once did. Tell the monkey about it. Happily our man’s found the time to

Gotta Be Funky ZemeraldAhh Zemerald – where have you been? What’s that? You don’t have time for music these days? Sad times indeed. But I feel your pain – kids – bills – the day job – the ex. It’s – sorry, what’s that you say – you’ve still managed to knock up a quick edit for the punters – and it’s got funk and a bonafide soul queen on it? Awwww – youuu! Gotta Be Funky and you’ve certainly made sure it is

DAVID BOWIE: Starman (ZEMERALD remix) Free download + DJ TANNER video

Starman Zemerald remix David BowieYesterday saw the passing of another musical legend but while David Bowie’s most famous persona, Ziggy Stardust, may have been all about the glam, let’s not forget he shared a penchant for outrageous spangly suits and boots with George Clinton’s Parliament/ Funkadelic crew. And the similarities didn’t end there for in the mid-seventies our Dave had a funk/soul period during

ZEMERALD: So Much Trouble In My Mind (2015) Free download

I Got So Much Trouble In My Mind ZemeraldSo Much Trouble In My Mind? Would this be Zemerald having a crack at re-working the squelchy funk classic that is Sir Joe Quarterman’s 1972 cut with a view to updating it for the now and presumably avoiding detection by Soundcloud’s copyright ‘bots? The answer is, yes, it certainly would as the man from Jersey chops-up the arrangement of the original, puts the

ZEMERALD: Sucker Punch Dance (2015) Free download + video

Sucker Punch ZemeraldRating: ★★★★★ It’s that Zemerald booty time again! This time it’s in the form of funky b-boy breaks which takes as its basis The Mandatory Eight’s horns-rich Sucker Punch and seasons with a pinch of Salt N Pepa for the street flava of Sucker Punch Dance. Talking of ‘street flavour’, there’s plenty of fisticuffs on the accompanying video which features all manner of idiots brawling

About Her ZemeraldOne for jilted lovers and fans of both trip-hop and drum n bass everywhere as Zemerald‘s latest takes the vocals off a version of The Zombies’ 1964 mod-jazz-beat/rock single She’s Not There and slows it right down for that downtempo moodiness.

KATAKANA EDITS: Vol. 24 (2015) + ZEMERALD ‘Got To Get Got’

Vol 22 23 Katakana EditsRating: ★★★★★ I don’t know – no Katakana edits in your inbox for ages and then three come along in the same week. In case you’re wondering about this, the reason is the same as for when three buses arrive at once – the one in front is late, the one in the middle is on time and the one at the back is early. Obvious really – a bit like giving this bunch of booty mashes the full MB thumbs up. Basically

ZEMERALD: Cookie Jar (2015) Free download

Cookie Jar ZemeraldThat man Zemerald has had his hand in the groovy cookie jar again and this time he snaffles up the crunchy goodness of the Reverend Barrington Stanley’s groove – er – Cookie Jar. He’s not going to just dunk it in his brew like that though – even if it is straight out of the funk rarities selection box. No, no, it’ll need re-baking with a bit of extra percussion and then some extra

ZEMERALD: Je Suis Charlie (2015) Free download

Je Suis Charlie ZemeraldThe stench of hypocrisy on all sides has reached a new high this week in the wake of the Charlie Hebdo attack. Western leaders have pontificated about how freedom of speech is inalienable – except when a gagging order is required about a member of the Royal Family engaged in questionable activities or a dodgy arms deal is going down for example. All manner of people
