Alice Russell is probably best known for her work done on the Tru Thoughts label, and in particular with Quantic. This Brighton soul singer is a very busy girl indeed and seems to pop up all over the place on various collaborations, as well as releasing her own solo albums. Here is a sample of some of her work done outside the obvious.

I haven't posted any funk for a while, so i thought i would give you a couple of tracks off a compilation released last year called "Fallin' Off The Reel". Enjoy.

Andy Rantzen was once one half of Sydney electronic outfit Boo Boo & Mace(formerly Itch-E & Scratch-E), the other half being Paul Mac(Paul McDermott). Paul, since the parting of their outfit, has had a successful transition into the commercial music scene here in Australia, and has most recently worked with Daniel Johns, forming The Dissosciatives, and then working on Silverchairs latest offering.

I have been struggling for time to post over the last few days, but here is a couple of disco tunes off a double CD release(1 mixed, 1 unmixed) called "Kenny Dope Vs. P&P Records". Obviously compiled and presented by the master Kenny Dope, it is filled with some quality disco cuts.

Do you ever get a song that just continually gets played when you have your MP3 player on shuffle, whilst others are neglected? I have one such song that has been red hot lately, fortunately i love it.

Here is a couple of cuts off the I:Cube album Picnic Attack(1997). An interesting listen from an artist around the start of the whole French filtered house scene blowing up with the success of Daft Punk's Homework, released for the second time the same year. One of the tracks in this post(Disco Cubizm), reminds me a lot of the Cassius track "Feeling For You", which was certainly a big success here in Australia.

When i first started purchasing music, i really had no idea about record labels and the role the played, especially in the underground music market. One of the first labels that i really got into was the now defunct label Nuphonic. I especially enjoyed their compilation series, of which i have a few of, so here are five of my favourite moments from Nuphonic.

I am a big fan of the work that the Glaswegian boys do over on the Ooft Music blog. And if you head over there at the moment they have a retrospective of some of their favourite edits they have posted this year, so if you haven't already, check them out.

There is something i have always found mesmerising about the piano. Out of all the instruments, it is the one that probably speaks to me the most, and that my ear tunes into above all other sounds when it is played on a track. So, here are three of my favourite songs, just a singer and their piano.
I could have easily had "Ordinary People", but as that was flogged on commercial radio here, i have taken this amazing version of "Lifted", taken off his Solo Sessions(Live At The Knitting Factory) CD.

I must admit, i had not heard of keyboardist Carlos Franzetti until stumbling across this reissue of this apparently once rare 1977 (i did find one source that stated 1970, but most say 1977) release "Grafitti". Upon further digging, you find this Argentinian born musician has a long list of impressive credits listed here. This album has a fusion of 70's jazz, funk, disco and latin, and on the whole, is a pretty good listen.
