I've a wide taste in music but especially modal jazz, reggae (I do some reggae DJ'ing), drum n bass, British and Australian punk, new wave and indie, soul, funk and lots inbetween

I am a reggae moderator and happy to give any help or advice on reggae submissions - just email me.

Also do some writing about boxing at 15rounds.com

None of my music is for sale. Cheers!

Interpretations of other people's work is perhaps what Jose James does best. His Billie Holiday collection was peerless. This is collection of Bill Withers pieces is great too

Fair enough, but I think you enjoy it more if you see how they got there. I'd go in chronological order

late to the party getting hold of this, but its really excellent. Quite a few vocals samples that I know I've heard somewhere before, that will keep me busy tracking down for a while. Get a copy if you can

This managed to sit in my new records pile for nearly 2 years without me playing it. Mistake. Its lush and deep and summery and you can play any of the tracks out

its the vibes that make this. And the breathy Korean vocal. It just breathes summer
posted a review of Sweet William (8) - Jasmine. 3 months ago
Its a pity that almost no-one outside Japan will hear this because its really excellent. I only speak a few words of Japanese so I can't tell you anything about the rap, but the beats are interestingly fragmented cuts of jazz and found pieces of urban ... See full review

Great lyrics, but Tracey's voice has gone and Ewan Pearson doesn't seem to have put a lot of thought into the production. So its ultimately a bit light

Fair enough, but I don't agree. I DO agree that Black Focus is a better record - but that was close to perfect. This is just extremely good

The Trinadadian Deep side is an absolute stonker. Old school gospel keyboards based floor filler

An early contender for 2018 record of the year. I was playing this when a friend came round and she said "oh a new St Germain record"

At the time of course, everyone hated this. But its stood the test of time pretty well. Ok so some of the rapping is weak, but the horn and samples work well together. As always Miles was trying to stay contemporary and doing a pretty reasonable job. ... See full review
