Mixtape, sir? III: Don't stop the music.

Another load of great tunes and another of my favourite Achewoods.


  1. James Yorkston - Woozy With Cider (Dusty Cabinets Remix) (Yorkston's mesmerising monologue, now set to Orb-y ambience. Very nice.)
  2. Bebel Gilberto - Bring Back The Love (Prins Thomas Miks) (One for the early hours this one. Dusky, smoky, jazzy disco meltdown from one of the most in-form men in dance music at the moment.)
  3. Roxy Music - The Main Thing (Rub 'n' Tug's Proton Saga) (The Roxy remixes thus far have been a little on the hit and miss side. This one, from the reliably excellent Rub 'n' Tug, thankfully falls into the former camp. Gotta love those big ol' pianos.)
  4. Timmy Regisford - Get Deep (Well, I say that it's Regisford, but because it's a bootleg, he's never actually formally said that it was him. Anyway, it's Roland Clark's classic 'I Get Deep' vocal, set to chunks of 'E2-E4' and Carl Craig's 'Sandstorm'. Totally addictive.)
  5. Basement Jaxx - Make Me Sweat ("R-O-X-A-N-N-E to the S-H-A-N-T-E" on the vocals as the Jaxx return to the sex-electro-funk that they used to do so well. CSS and Spank Rock, this is how you do it! Why was this not on the album though?)
  6. Two Lone Swordsmen - Wrong Meeting (Slinky electro-rockabilly, though nowhere near as ridiculous as that sounds, from Tenniswood and Wetherall's new album of the same name. Spooky, echoey chants in this one too, which is always a good thing.)
  7. Sly Mongoose - Bad Pulse (Padded Cell have just done a pretty neat remix of this but I still prefer the original from Japan's premier disco-funkers.)
  8. The Aliens - Rox (Okay, so it's basically just a slowed-down version of 'Robot Man', but The Aliens bring some welcome Balearic vibes to their overflowing schizo stew here. Think Primal Scream's 'Come Together', performed by sugar-addled mental patients.)
  9. Funkadelic - I'll Stay (I don't think I need to justify this choice. Primo cosmic funk from George Clinton and the gang.)
  10. Kathy Diamond - Over (Vocal) (A masterclass in sweaty anticipation that never quite delivers the release that some may demand of it. This just makes it all the more headily sexy, if you ask me. Wait until you hear the album, too. It'll make your fucking head spin.)
  11. Kongas - Anikana-o (Superlative afro-disco-funk. The sound of two separate carnivals having a big drum-off. Whistles and percussion aplenty.)
Yer Mam!'s 10p Mix-Up Volume Four (Disc One) Ripped, Zipped and Sent Into Space

One more to go too!
