1. LEO SAYER - Easy To Love (Vincent Velocette Edit)

LEO SAYER - Easy To Love (Vincent Velocette Edit)

He was first person I ever saw live you know. Cleethorpes Pier, it was. 1973 or maybe 1974. Also saw the Fenn Street Gang live there. Peter Cleal was well posh. Anyhow, did this edit some years ago and then forgot about it, but since it's just appeared on Matthew Burgess's splendid mix on Emotional Pop (http://www.emotionalpop.com/ep34-matthew-burgess-who-dares-to-love-forever) thought I'd re-up. Here you go.

2. TWEET - Boogie 2Nite (Fat Camp Mix)

TWEET - Boogie 2Nite (Fat Camp Mix)

Me and Paul Noble did this mix shortly after the original came out. It was originally released - very briefly - on Disco Sucks about 6 years ago. Greg Wilson started playing it some time after it had been released and we started getting requests for it. Now's the chance to fill your boots.

4. FOX - S-S-S-Single Bed (BB edit)

FOX - S-S-S-Single Bed (BB edit)

Noosha was a teenage fantasy figure for me and many of other pubescent boys of the 1970s. She also made great, funky pop records. Here's one of them.

5. RARE ESSENCE – Body Moves (Fat Camp Edit)

RARE ESSENCE – Body Moves (Fat Camp Edit)

Paul and I did this about 12 years ago where it has subsequently lain in a metaphorical cupboard under the stairs, looking sad and ignored. Have fun with it.

6. MANG DYNASTY - Crash The Box

MANG DYNASTY - Crash The Box

A new tune by myself and Raj aka Ray Mang. The starting point for this was afrobeat, though the end point was somewhere completely different. That's the fun of being in the studio with a world full of samples and ideas. Unsigned. Anyone listening interested in signing it, get in touch.

J5 - Mirrors In My Mind (Fat Camp Edit)

The original edit of this came out in 2002 on Moton and was a really big record for Theo Parrish at the time. We also did another version – this one, which has never been out before.

10. Solid Steel Radio Show 25/9/2015 Hour 1 - Bill Brewster

Solid Steel Radio Show 25/9/2015 Hour 1 - Bill Brewster

Solid Steel in association with Serato (25th September) Our guest in Hour 1 needs little introduction, having documented DJ culture for many years through his writing and DJ History website, as well as being a well respected DJ. When asked for a few words, he wrote; Never forget that DJing is entertainment. As much as us nerds and geeks love digging for new and oddball music, you’ve still got to entertain the crowd in front of you. Which, in this case happens to be you. Hello. How are you? Really? Me too. The advantage of entertaining you rather than a dancefloor is that I can afford to go off the chosen path occasionally and take a few diversions (it’s not that often, for example, you get the chance to play Yoko Ono without the threat of physical violence hovering somewhere in the foreground). Even so, it’s important – to me, at least – to offer something that dips its toes in between the dancing part of the job and the entertaining (pull up a chair, crack open the Diazepam). As in my most of my club sets, I try and balance between the brand new, new-to-me and ones pulled out of the festering mess where my records reside and combine them into a delightful musical soufflé. If you’re counting the calories, best wait a while before dipping into this. I’ve spent a decent chunk of this year compiling a series called Sources for Harmless (30 CDs in total… Phew), it’s brought a few old favourites up to the surface to get some air, so Clandestine’s ‘Radio Rhythms’ on Sleeping Bag is on here; arguably the nearest hip hop ever got to country & western. The opener is by Aax Donnell and Eric Malone and is one of those ridiculous and brilliant Italian records that I have a weakness for. Aax Donnell was also in Traks, who cut some great stuff in the early 80s. The Jill Scott song ‘Gimme’, I’ve been playing since it came out over ten years ago and never got bored of playing. There’s a whole raft of new stuff, some of which I got in the past week, some I’ve been playing over the summer. There are a few things on here you might not know, but equally there’s Fatima Yamaha, my favourite tune of the summer of 2015 (and yes, I’m aware it originally came out in 2004), to even things out and since there’s a new Prince album, a bit of that too (buy it, it’s surprisingly good).

16. BILL BREWSTER Presents FUNKY CHRISTMAS 2017

BILL BREWSTER Presents FUNKY CHRISTMAS 2017

Let me save you from you mates' shocking taste in Christmas music. Yes we all Slade, but frankly no-one needs to listen to Merry Xmas Everybody anymore. I spent a week dredging up my favourite Christmas tunes, that range from Ella Fitzgerald singing the hell out of Have Yourself A Merry Christmas to Donny Hathaway's celestial This Christmas. Thirty four tunes, 90 minutes of music. You're welcome (and mine's an egg nog). Babz Gonzalez - Be-Bop Santa Claus Lowell Fulson - Lomesome Christmas Isaac Hayes - Mistletoe & Me Jimmy Smith - Jingle Bells Cleveland Robinson - Xmas Time Is Here Again Rufus Thomas - That Makes Christmas Day The Temptations - Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer Marvin Gaye - I Want To Come Home For Christmas Otis Redding = Merry Christmas Baby Louis Armstrong - Christmas Night In Harlem Brenda Lee - Rockin Around The Christmas Tree Louis Prima - What Will Santa Say Music Lab Collective - All I Want For Christmas Staples - Who Took The Merry Out Of Christmas The Emotions - What Do The Lonely Gladys Knight - Do You Hear What I Hear Meditation Singers - What The World The Dramatics - Santa Claus Is Coming To Town Donny Hathaway - This Christmas The Bionic - Disco Claus Short Stuff - Merry Christmas Baby The Emotions - Black Christmas Stevie Wonder - What Christmas means To Me Music Lab Collective - Merry Xmas Everybody Charles Brown - I’ll Be Home at Christmas Ella Fitzgerald - Have Yourself A Very Merry Christmas Chet Baker - Winter Wonderland Ramsey Lewis Trio - Sleigh Ride Pearl Bailey - Jingle Bells Brenda Lee - Rockin Around The Xmas Tree Mabel Scott - boogie Woogie Santa Claus The Hipsters - Rockin Rolling with Santa Big John Greer - We Wanna See Santa Do The Mambo Allen Toussaint - Silent Night
