Happy new year!* I hope you had a lovely festive break with your families and loved ones - now it's time to work off the turkey (or continue to wallow in year-round cheese-induced heartburn misery - some of us belief this shit is for life, not just for christmas)...
There's not too much on the tear-your-face-off front this month and much of the first half of the show is given over to funk, hip-hop, disco and re-edits. We also have a Record Of The Month from The Allergies in the form of "Seven Days" - more infectious than norovirus but certainly far more pleasant - check the Heartbreaker EP preview out here (it's chock-full of winners).
I'm also bowled over by that Yannah Valdevit record (Zed Bias on co-production). Then again I always had a soft spot for Sweet Female Attitude too, so maybe i'm just a sucker for a girly voice over a shuffling garage beat. There's also some arms-in-the-air classic dance rejigging going on from the ever reliable Groove Motion (you can't miss it).
My sister Laura was tuned in and assured me it's "good music to do coursework to", so if you're in the same study/revision-mire as her at the moment, get stuck in and: good luck to you!
This show is dedicated to Fontella Bass (July 3, 1940 – December 26, 2012) - RIP.

* The eagle-eyed/OCD-afflicted among you will have probably noticed the lack of a December show. I did broadcast Electric Vindaloo last month, but unfortunately the "studio" was hit by a powercut halfway through which meant a big gaping hole in the middle of proceedings. In the end I decided to abandon salvaging the recording and move on to a new month, and indeed new year...
