Some heavy late eighties throwback Hip hop joints in this episode, including the fierce Powercut II cut-up that uses the magic Disco Machine sample, plus a selection of tunes built around Dennis Coffey's "Ride Sally Ride" sample.
Heavy selections with this latest episode, that travels around all styles, all eras, and all tempos.
Prince would have wanted us all to move on..
Kicking off this episode with a couple of classics from one of Reggae's surviving pioneers Johnny Osbourne, who is scheduled to land in Australia next week for his first tour down under. I keep on the reggae vibe for a minute with a track off the new DJ Vadim album before heading into a heavy 80s Hip Hop set with plenty of raw drum machine sure shots. I detour slightly into some classic 70s rock before settling into some new release soul joints from the likes of SWV, Cool Uncle, and Brian McKinght - But not before ending with some…
Last month marked the fourteenth year of this Groove Therapy podcast, so I thought it appropriate to change it up slightly by giving the series some new cover art. The usual collage of nine albums that used to make up each episodes cover has run its course. There are now a bunch of other non-descript podcasts who use that same motif, so I wanted to give the cover art a more striking and recognizable look, allowing me to highlight my feature pick for each episode - and for this mix that honor has to go to Missy Elliot who just…

It's been a minute, but the podcast is back with a brand new episode. Kicking off with a selection of bass heavy jams before we go deep into some Latin and Jazz joints. Things heat up as I turn up the tempos and get into a mix that goes back and forth between Disco, Boogie, and House bombs.
On the eve of his first Australian tour, I go through Big Daddy Kane's huge discography. Expect a lot of the classics back to back with the original sample sources.
Keeping this episode uptempo, we kick off with a brand new release from the Haggis Horns before hitting the dancefloor with a heavy selection of Soul and Disco. Bone Thugs & Harmony make a welcome return over a very funky backing track courtesy of Zhu, and Zed Bias takes on a classic Soul II Soul tune.
This week sees a welcome return from Janet Jackson, who has been out of the game for a number of years and has just dropped a new album entitled "Unbreakable". Puff Daddy also makes a return with a curious new release featuring Pharrell. I play joints off Lance Ferguson's latest project Black Feeling, which has just released the third volume in the series covering a stack of funk and soul classics performed by many of Melbourne's finest musicians under a variety of pseudonyms. Further into the show I feature a couple of stella new release 45's from DJ Format who…
