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.

I got a tip from Chris Gill of Northside Records, that this great youth funk band was about to perform at a fundraiser for the Merri Creek Primary school. I ran there just in time to catch them. I’ll be playing their 7” on the radio show this week!

People, meet 17-year-old 10-piece funk outfit THE CACTUS CHANNEL.

Might as well share another great moment with yall.
…was digging for records at Northside in Melbourne, and these cats were outside having lunch. Chris (owner of Northside) suggested I have a chat with them, and then I realized that it was Lotek, who produced the music for Roots Manuva. Now, these are HUGE records for me, so I was quite excited to meet him. Next to him was Aussie beatboxer and emcee Morganics, fresh as well. We stepped into the alley and recorded this right quick before they left.
