PEDE004 – Shawn Lee – Psychedelic Percussion
Posted May 25th, 2012 at 4:02 pm
Shawn is no stranger to the music industry having released over 10 artists albums to date and a collaborations list to make your eyes pop out.
He took time out from being a rockstar to make this classic percussion album in his London studio 'Trans Yank'. When I went around, the cigarette pack was still taped to the congas making a rattle sound on Cajon On The Range, as were the pots and pans that his wife had called me to ask him to bring home. And yes, there is a hair comb on Totally Tubu...

PEDF042 – House Works – Funky basslines
Posted November 24th, 2011 at 11:36 am
To the industry Nicolas Scaravilli (aka Kid Creme) is an innovator. To some a genius.Â He single-handedly kicked offÂ a style of funky house that spawned a genre ofÂ house music. Content with only releasing a record everyÂ 2 years he certainly cannot be described as over exposed. To have the privilege of releasing an album of 11 tracks from such a tastemaker is reason to celebrate indeed.
Admittedly Nico and I are old friends.Â We started making records together as teenagers. He was ...
