Michael Jackson – Black & White
King MJ – this tune is amazing on every level and the video is incredible. This one speaks for it self. RIP MJ x
A$AP Rocky – Canal Street
A$AP Rocky is one of my favourite rappers and this track on his At.Long.Last.A$AP album is my favourite. His style & flow is second to none.
Childish Gambino – Redbone
This is a JAM. No matter what mood I’m in this will cleanse my ears and put me in a good mood. So good, Childish Gambino at his best.
Double Hill – Purple Hills
Amazing timeless record which I lose myself when listening to it.
DJ Rolando – Jaguar
Masterpiece. This track is a belter – vibes are always high when this gets played. The melody in this is so nostalgic !!
A Tribe Called Quest – Electric Relaxation
This is classic hip hop at its best, it’s all about the beats in this track.
St Germain – Sure Thing
Pure Vibe from St Germain – perfect for home listening. Beautiful composition and the guitar riff keeps rolling throughout.
O.V. Wright – Let’s Straighten It Out
The Piano riff at the beginning of this track just pulls you in. Again, another great track for home listening for those chilled out Sunday afternoons.
Michael Boothman – What You Won’t Do For Love
Originally released by Bobby Caldwell in 1978 but re-released by Trinidadian guitarist Michael Boothman with Charmaine Forde on the vocals. This track is class.
The Rolling Stones – Can’t You Hear Me Knocking
A classic from The Rolling Stones. The jam at the end was actually recorded by accident, but as it was grooving so well they kept the tape rolling.
Jansons & Senzala – JNZ
Richy Ahmed’s agenda setting Four Thirty Two label welcomes back Jansons and the Senzala duo for two terrific tracks that are designed to detonate the dance floor. London duo Senzala is made up of Jonni Santos and Sam Holland, a pair who have impressed with their inventive sounds and rich musical palettes on labels like Pets Recordings and forthcoming releases on No. 19. Fellow Londoner Jansons, meanwhile, has been tipped as one to watch, with numerous plays of his recent releases on Four Thirty Two, Knee Deep In Sound and VIVa across all the BBC radio specialist dance shows.
Both these artists released individually on Four Thirty Two in 2017 making a real impression, now they combine their considerable skills on this excellent two track single. Opening up in brilliantly arresting fashion is ‘JNZ’, a big-hearted house track with bouncy rubber kicks and scattered percussion, bringing a loose sense of funk to the groove. Perfectly soulful, pitch shifted vocals (from Margaret Grace, for the spotters out there) bring an inescapable ‘hands in the air’ vibe that’s already tearing up some of the more discerning dancefloors out there, and already big with jocks like Jamie Jones, Richy Ahmed, Hot Since 82 and many more.
On the flip is ‘Aura’, with its razor sharp hi hats and exuberant drums molding an expertly functional track. Withering sci-fi synths shoot through the mix as frazzled chords bring more energy and atmospherics to this full fat house banger! Label head honcho, Richy Ahmed, explains more; “finally ready for release, the ‘JNZ’ track has been the biggest tracks in my record box over the last 5 months, it’s one of those rare cuts that always gets an amazing reaction where ever it gets played, I’m really chuffed that this is coming out on Four Thirty Two”.
A cracking new single then from Jansons & Senzala, new school house heroes to definitely watch out for over the coming year!
