There's Nothing Like Australia
"Wait until you hear the acapella I recorded of Katie Noonan… you’ll melt."

Where can I find the acapella??? I was so excited when I read this... — Asked by Anonymous

Go to KCRW.COM/JEREMYSOLE and you’ll see a link for my Aussie tribute show. It’s 3 hours of the music I dug up (or recorded) down under! In the last 20 minutes of it I feature the Acca from Katie.

So close... and yet so far away... crazy!!

Hey Sam,
Thanks so much for tuning in on the regular, sincerely. I wish I was able to visit more of the continent… I truly loved all I saw and heard, and everyone I met. Thanks so much for the kind invitation as well.

much love!

Melbourne-based DJ/Producer JULES INKSWEL booked me to mix with him at The Croft Institute last Saturday night. I could tell by their website that it would be an adventure to find it, so I filmed the search.

'Twas a great night, indeed - people were packed in there (on every floor), with Inkswel getting them sweaty to some Disco, Boogie and whatnot. I matched his style and then went to some Latin, Brazilian, Funk, Disco… then from 2-3am we went back and forth every other record. #classic

Some of the tracks he played that I liked the most were his own productions, and those of his friends. This backing track is “Marmalade Jam” by FlowerPot (Cuckoo Music).

Chris Gill of Northside records was kind enough to keep the store open a bit longer on Sunday so I could finish record shopping on my last day in Melbourne. He and Jake Savona were hanging out waiting for me, and Jake pulled out his melodica…

Had a great time (and amazing brunch) with LANCE FERGUSON (aka LANU) and his family - rapped about his projects THE BAMBOOS, COOKIN’ ON 3 BURNERS, LANU and his musical life on Tru Thoughts records. Lance is an outrageous guitarist, songwriter, producer and all-around mastermind. Definitely dig his arsenal of sounds.
On top of all those projects, his new outfit called THE FIREMEN will be playing their classic Blue Note and Prestige records-style jazz funk at Northside Records, in celebration of Record Store Day, Saturday 16th April at 2pm.
