Michael Jackson being fantastic. 

lacienegasmiled:

As Jackson couldn’t fluently play any instruments, he would sing and beatbox out how he wanted his songs to sound by himself on tape, layering the vocals, harmonies and rhythm before having instrumentalists come in to complete the songs.

One of his engineers Robmix on how Jackson worked: “One morning MJ came in with a new song he had written overnight. We called in a guitar player, and Michael sang every note of every chord to him. “here’s the first chord first note, second note, third note. Here’s the second chord first note, second note, third note”, etc., etc. We then witnessed him giving the most heartfelt and profound vocal performance, live in the control room through an SM57. He would sing us an entire string arrangement, every part. Steve Porcaro once told me he witnessed MJ doing that with the string section in the room. Had it all in his head, harmony and everything. Not just little eight bar loop ideas. he would actually sing the entire arrangement into a micro-cassette recorder complete with stops and fills.”

Reasons why I laugh when people say he wasn’t a real musician.

The Time “Get It Up” on Soul Train.

Morris Day and company strutting their stuff for Don Cornelius.


The Time - Get It Up TIB-FUNK by TIB-FUNK

"Get It Up" was their first single from their eponymous album in 1981.

It’s fitting that they are miming and pretending to play their instruments on this clip: it was exactly the case in the studio too - Prince wrote all the tracks and played all the instruments himself* . He was gracious enough to share the vocals with his old friend Morris Day though. 

*edit - check out the full 9 minute version on Spotify to enjoy the Dr Fink keyboard solo (the only other musician involved, who wasn’t actually in the band)  to the fullest.

Grace Jones - From The Nipple To The Bottle.

Just stumbled across this in the collection. Wow. Love it when you haven’t though about a certain tune, or artist in a while, right?

 Fierce is the only word for it. The bassline is fierce. The drums are fierce.  Sly Dunbar & Robbie Shakespeare are behind the rhythm section by the way, which explains why the groove is so good. .

Oh and Grace Jones is also fierce, obviously. As you can see for yourself.  I met her once, in Ibiza. Scared the bejaysus out of me as I recall. 

Loose Joints “All Over My Face” (Male Vocal)

This version kills me. Crazier percussion, much more random.

The version you know with the female vocal is the one straightened out for the disco dancefloors by Larry Levan. Nothing wrong with that version either, hell no. But recently, it’s been about this eleven minute workout as far as I”m concerned. 

I’ve been jonesing on Arthur Russell (pictured) of late. If you don’t know too much about him you could do a lot worse than pick up the amazing compilation by Soul Jazz Records

Gilles Peterson, a VERY special guest, Darksky, myself and more playing at Dance Tunnel in Dalston this Saturday.  More info, and tickets here. Come.
