Teemu P – “Roskooppi” – No.54



Roskooppi takes another detour to the land of jazz and soul. After receiving a few requests to revisit the themes of Roskooppi #46 I decided that it was time to play something slightly different from the usual fair. The set is a mixture of old and new from 1970’s Romanian jazz of Guido Manusardi to Eugene Harrington’s modern take on basement jazz. Starting it all of is Shuggie Otis with his track that got brilliantly sampled on Gus Gus Feat. Mayburg – Hateful (Ada Remix).

Shuggie Otis – Aht Uh Mi Hed [Epic]
Eugene Harrington – She Always Asks (How Come There’s No Words) [NOECHO Records]
Guido Manusardi – Arriving Soon [Sonar Kollektiv]
Radu Ghizasan – Nunta [Sonar Kollektiv]
Nieminen & Litmanen – Soul Dress [Grandpop Records]
The Sun Ra Arkestra – Egypt Strut [Golden Years Of New Jazz]
Eddie Gale – The Rain [Blue Note]
The Rongetz Foundation Feat. Gregory Porter – Gogo Soul [Brooklyn Butterfly Sound]
The Herbaliser – The Real Killer [Ninja Tune]
The Shaolin Afronauts – Brooklyn [Freestyle]

Black Box #64 | Tribute to Gil Scott-Heron


Black Box #64 – This time round we pay tribute to the late great Gil Scott-Heron in the only way that will do him justice – playing his own music. We also check out a chunk of Jazz and electronic stuff that is well worth checking out. How apt that this show should be the number as the years in his life. I found it hard to write about him in a way that would do him justice… so perhaps this will be my way of seeing him off. Hope you enjoy.

Gil Scott-Heron – My Cloud
H20 Gate BLues
