I found this when I was recordshoping yesterday and it blows me off my feet. Electrifying italian disco! Fucking amazing. Well, that's what I think. What do you think?

I played a miniset at a gathering yesterday and one of the crowds favourite was Woolfys edit of Band On The Run which made me rediscover this marvelous edit. Here you go as well if you missed it when it came out.

Teddy Pendergrass passed away yesterday. One of the truly big and original voices in the field och soul and disco. His work as a solo artist as well as his work in Harold Melvin And The Blue Notes will be remembered as long as I'm alive anyway. Since I'm too tired to rip my vinyls right now I'll give you some golden Teddy moments through spotify instead.

Here's two teardrenched lovesongs from the one and only Four Tops from their second motown single, their follow up to Baby I Need Your Loving. It's not that uptempo this time, but sometimes you need to slow down as well, so here you go, from me to you, two golden motown moments with the Four Tops.
Four Tops - Without The One You Love (Life's Not Worthwhile) /mediafire
Four Tops - Love Has Gone /mediafire
from the 7" Without The One You Love (Life's Not Worthwhile) / Love Has Gone (Motown 1964)

Today I was in the mood for some classic detroit-deephouse. Since all good things got their roots in detroit I think I'll post some nice Motown groove later on today as well. Have a beautiful day til then.
Three Chairs - Roots of Detroit /mediafire
from the 12" Rick Wilhite, Kenny Dixon Jr. & Theo Parrish Present Three Chairs (Three Chairs 1997)
also available on the compilation Spectrum (Three Chairs 2009)

This DFA-act has been delivering good music for a while now and 2009 were no different in that aspect. This year was also the first time that I had the chance to see them live. Although their was not many people who showed up at their gig at debaser in Sthockholm and they had problems with the sound at the beginning, they made an excellent performance and I'd love to see them again in the future. Their album The Future Will Come is filled with great electronic dance music. I had a hard time picking just one song from the album. If you like the song I picked you should go and check out the whole album.

One of the most smart and original covers the past year came from one of the most interesting bands that came through, Florence + The Machine. The Source feat Candi Staton's clubclassic from 1991 got new life through this version and even if you didn't love the original I think you will find this version as beautiful as I have done.
Florence + The Machine - You've Got The Love (Jamie XX Re-work) /mediafire

One of the most hyped records during the past year was The Very Best's album Warm Heart Of Africa. The Very Best consists of Radioclit and singer Esau Mwamwaya from Malawi. As you might have noticed I'm very fond of african music and especially dance oriented stuff. The Very Best has done the whole world a big favour by putting african music on the international club scene and hopefully we will see a lot more of this in the future. The album consists of several good songs like the title song which became a minor hit, but my favourite right now is the more clubby Angonde. I hope you like it as much as I do.

One of the most intense albums of the last year must have been Fuck Button's Tarot Sport. I realised that when I was at the gym the other day running and had the album playing in the ipod. I just felt like running like crazy, and so I did. People must have looked at me and thought that I wasn't quite sane. But WTF. This is my nomination for the best gymalbum of 2009!
Fuck Buttons - Flight Of The Feathered Serpent /mediafire

After some really good 12"'s in 2008 like Kuk av stål norwegian Blackbelt Andersen released his first full length album which really is a compilation of his singles with a couple of new tracks added to it. The album shows that he is a norwegian we can count on. The whole album is great!

I hope you had a great new year's eve. I had a great night and I'm very excited about what this year has in store for me. Every new year is like a new start in life. Right now I'm catching up musically with 2009. During the last year I have mostly been lost in the 70's and 80's and edits of that period. Now I'm listening to alot of the things that I missed during the year and I will spread it with you all. Starting of with someone called Bibio. His album Ambivalence Avenue is a beautiful musical journey through different types of music like pop, hip hop, ambient and soul. Impossible to categorise, impossible not to like.
Bibio - Jealous of Roses /mediafire
from the album Ambivalence Avenue (Warp 2009)
