Midnight Magic - Beam Me Up

This is a summer disco track that just makes you wanna dance the night away. The piano playing is extremely groovy. Jacques Renault has made a fine up-tempo remix of the track. Here is the original.

Brazilian sleaze

Sorry for the bad sound quality.

Wally Badarou

Figured it was time to add one of my favourite groove makers, Wally Badarou. As a synthesiser specialist, Wallys keyboard is to be heard on albums by artists like Herbie Hancock and Talking Heads, just to name a few. But my favourite work has to be his solo instrumental album Echoes from 1983. It features a wide range of perfect synth grooves, and I think the studio sessions in Bahamas must have given some tropical inspiration too.
Check out this great interview with the man himself.
