DJ Moogaloo: Straight From The Play Box Mix

DJ Moogaloo: Soul Flavoured Jazz Divas mix

This month DJ Moogaloo has really pulled out all the stops and compiled a superb series of mixes themed around female jazz singers making soul records. This is one of our favourite subjects and you’ll hear many of these records played at RPM regularly.

Here is another between the gaps genre, when great female jazz singers get groovy, some just dabble with the odd track, or LP and others like Marlena Shaw sit right in the middle of the two. They do end up with a unique quality soulful sound, often with scatting.

Here are the links for Parts 1 and 2; Part 3 is in the works too, you lucky people!

Soul Flavoured Jazz Divas

Part 1
Night Owl – Cleo Laine
Save Me – Nina Simone
Get Ready – Ella Fitzgerald
Woman Of The Ghetto – Marlena Shaw
Compared To What – Della Reese
Inner City Blues – Sarah Vaughan
Let’s Wade In The Water – Marlena Shaw
Hey Jude – Ella Fitzgerald
Funkier Than A Mosquito’S Tweeter – Nina Simone
Aquarius- Cleo Laine
Part 2
Sunshine Of Your Love – Ella Fitzgerald
My Love’s A Monster- Clea Bradford
Right Now – Salena Jones
Liberation Conversation – Marlena Shaw
Willie And Laura May Jones – The New Zealand Jazz Orchestra
Catch A Robber The Toe – Sylvia Mcneil
It Was A Very Good Year – Della Reese
Ain’t Got No; I Got Life – Nina Simone
California Soul – Marlena Shaw

DJ Moogaloo’s funky bag of pipes mix

Did you know that it’s possible to get funky with a set of bagpipes? Us neither. So DJ Moogaloo got busy on the old ones and twos once again and proved us wrong with this incredible array of crazy, tooting parpy grooviness… no kilt required!

Bagpipes were never meant to be funky. Their imprecise drone sound was meant to signal the threatening sound of a Scottish clan on the march and to inject fear into their enemies, not make you nod your head and wig out.

Well this does not seem to have stopped some crazy people from adding a pinch of the funk to the bagpipe sound.

Some are traditional bagpipe music, just with funky drums, driving bass and maybe some freaky electronics, others are out and out funk, with the bagpipe woven in.

I don’t have a vast collection of this sort of thing, and I think even the short mix here might try some people’s endurance, but it is good fun.

Funky Bag of Pipes


Scotch On The Rocks – Robert Murphy
Listen Heah – Bros In Co-Op
The Hens March To The Midden – Jimmy Pride
Malika – Rufus Harley
Pop Pudding – Robert Murphy
The Funky Beggerman – Jimmy Pride

DJ Moogaloo: Journey to the East – sitarsploitation mix!

DJ Moogaloo’s been sweating over the Indo-Jazz Fusion and Bollywood breaks and beats in order to bring to you this fabulous sitar groovers mix – we’ll be spinning a few of these at forthcoming RPMs so come prepared to wig out!

I took part in a CD swap for in 2011 and this is the mix I came up with. It is kind of representative of my tastes in music, so a bit of a mixed bag and as it is aimed at fellow record collectors most of it is quite obscure and all from original vinyl (Except the last track which was never released and was recorded of the TV).

I came up with the title “Joy of Funk” partly a play on words of “Joy of Sex” but mainly because I felt that what tied it all together was a celebratory joyousness. There is nothing moody of deep here, just a groovy uplifting mix of great tunes.

We have electronic belly dance, bollywood, funk, library music, hammond organ groovers, tropicalia, Brazilian Telenova Soundtracks and anything else that I like. Hope you enjoy them to 🙂
