Weekend, woop! If you”™ve not yet planned anything, some of the Spotisfaction crew will be attending the Midsummer Fiesta in Cheltenham”™s Montpellier tomorrow – if you”™re going, come search us out and we”™ll chill in the sun together, a blissed out posse of music-loving nerds. It promises to be a wicked day out, with live music by Waiting For Kate, The Divine Secret and others.

My playlist today is stuff I”™ve been listening to for the last couple of weeks. Some of it”™s new, some of it is obscure. Hopefully all of it is funky and will bring a smile to your face.
Favourites include Jazzanova, who are a band I”™ve got all the time in the world for. They”™ve recently stepped back into the studio, so it”™s only right they”™ve got me salivating enough to feature them pretty heavily on my playlist in one form or another.
I”™m also a pretty massive fan of Japanese jazz fiends, SOIL & “PIMP” SESSIONS – honestly, if you even remotely like modern jazz/funk/soul, check them out. You won”™t be disappointed. My favourite track of theirs is Mars (which would have been on this playlist if I”™d not already featured it before).
A lot of credit for this playlist goes to an ex-housemate of mine, Ryan French, who got me into the majority of stuff that features. Big love, stranger. Still waiting for you to make us a playlist, though”¦ ;)
