The Basics - Land of 1000 Dances     Soul, R&B, Indie 20/12/2019
The Basics like music a lot more than biographies, and fortunately (or not), this would appear to manifest in their writing. Music = good, bios = not very good.
First written and recorded by Chris Kenner in 1962, the song "Land of 1000 Dances" became Wilson Pickett's biggest hit in 1966.

The "na na na na na" hook happened by accident when Frankie "Cannibal" Garcia, lead singer of Cannibal and the Headhunters, forgot the lyrics.

The Basics has been performing it since 2006 and do it pretty well.

Karate Boogaloo - Doing It To Death     Soul, Instrumental, Indie 17/12/2019
Making up the rhythm section of long-time Melbourne soul favourites The Cactus Channel, Karate Boogaloo remind us of the beauty of colouring outside the lines.
Happy Holidays and Seasons Greetings from KB. We landed on ‘Doing It To Death’ pretty naturally. It got thrown up with a heap of other stompers and in retrospect we chose this because it is emblematic of The JB’s beautifully considered simplicity, and James Brown at almost his most outrageous, evidenced in the key change halfway through.

Sally Sa - Hip Hop Lover     Soul, Roots, Reggae / Dub 06/12/2019
Sally Sa, the singer/songwriter from the East Coast of Australia has followed up on her recent singles "Mama" and "Hourglass" to announce her debut album Speaking My Mind.
A brilliant example of what to expect from the album can be seen through the track "Hip Hop Lover!". "I wanted to write an ironic song about hip hop, but not a hip hop song-written purely in the influence of jazz. Even Glenn Bloomfield (who plays most instruments on the album) didn’t know what I was doing in the studio.

Jacki Tut - Good For Now     Soul, R&B, Hip Hop, Jazz 29/11/2019
Jacki Tut is a South-Sudanese Australian artist from deep in Melbourne’s South-East. Moving through RnB, Soul and Hip-Hop to cultivate her sound, Jacki draws inspiration from navigating young adulthood.
Tut’s vocal style is fluid, she makes it seem so easy but the kick to her lyrical delivery at times draws a line in the sand and warning us not to fuck with her. Good For Now is compelling and Tut’s rich vocals, while easily reminiscent of the likes of Solange and NoName, are entirely her own.

Abigail Alexander - Heart and Soul     Soul, Pop, Alternative, Easy Listening 28/11/2019
I show my vulnerability through my songs, I want to let people know it’s okay not to be okay. I'm not perfect, but I got through it.
When I wrote this song I had come to accept wholeheartedly, who I am as a person. It took a lot of hard work to get to where I am today, I wanted to say to others “you are not alone”.
