DJ Moogaloo: Mucky Groovers Mix

This month DJ Moogaloo is playing some rude records at the Mucky Book Club, Hoxton Hall, London, on the 15th November, so thought he might do a mix.

Some of the tunes have people “enjoying” themselves over organ wigouts and funky bass lines  others have double entendre lyrics, I mean is Elvis actually singing about his relationship with a car?

Erotica – Rita
The Witch Doctor – Over Night Low
Turn Of The Lights – Larry Joung’s Fuel
Exit – Erotica
Playa Ardiente (Jungle Fever) – Anel Y Los Chavos

RPM this Saturday!

We are back at The Farmhouse this coming Saturday, 28th July, after a great weekend at Lounge. DJ Moogaloo will be spinning fantastic speed lounge, Bollywood, mod spins and classic soul, and Jeff’s back with late 70s and 80s electro, hip hop, rare groove and funk! See you there!

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

RPM at LOTF

We had a great weekend at Lounge On The Farm, hope you all did too! Plenty of sunshine and summertime grooves in the Farmhouse Bar and Roller Disco tent… here’s us starting the early afternoon set on Fri!

RPM at Lounge On The Farm!

The RPM DJ tag team are playing at the brilliant Lounge On The Farm festival again this weekend. Very excited!

We are playing our usual eclectic mix of lounge, afrobeat, latin, funky rock, psych, soundtracks, bollywood, disco, electro, old school hip hop and more all day Saturday 7th July at the Farmhouse Bar and also spinning disco, funk, boogie and electro at Roller Disco on Friday afternoon and Sunday afternoon.

RPM tonight!

We’re really excited about tonight’s Rpm! It’s the first night since last month’s sell-out show so we’ve upped our game, got the full rpm tag team out, and really dug deep to find some incredible new tunes for ya! See you later!

RPM this Saturday, 21st April 2012

That seems like a very looong month since the last RPM, so we’re back with a vengeance this Saturday (on the third Saturday of the month again) with our bags packed extra-full of choice tunes for your listening (and dancing) pleasure! See you on Saturday at The Farmhouse!

If there’s anything we’ve played before that you really want to hear again, or anything that fits the RPM house style and you think we might just have nestling somewhere in the RPM vinyl vault, just bung us a tweet, mail, Facebook message or a comment here on the blog and we’ll do our best…

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.
