Furious Styles Show: 4 on Soho Radio

image

Many styles - Furious Styles - present on this here new show for Soho Radio. A full technical glitches shouldn’t spoil the enjoyment of a show that starts with Curtis, ends with Mr Scruff and shimmies from Soca disco, to African funk via Floating Points, Public Enemy by way of Isaac Hayes. Tracklist for your perusal if you’re that way inclined, but I say just get with the music. Out to Mark Broadbent, Trevor Jackson, and everyone else who has inspired me musically  this week.

More Boom for your box - Furious Styles Radio

This week’s Soho Radio show started with the Dennis Bovell produced sound of The Slits and ended with the Mizell Brothers’ peerless production of Johnny Hammond. Along the way there was some Nigerian disco ( ain’t there always), some Tom Waits,  new music from Jim-E Stack and Clap Clap,  old music from The Beatnuts & Public Enemy, the best cut from a lesbian vampire soundtrack,  and of course something Purple from the very early Prince era.

Beat It (Demo)
Michael Jackson
The Ultimate Fan Extras Collection

Reblogged from lacienegasmiled

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.
