D’ANGELO IS BACK!

He’s back.

And sounding as good as, if not better, than when he last graced us with his ridiculous talent, more than 10 years ago… Can NOT wait til his concert on Monday at Paradiso, Amsterdam. Words fail me. And that’s rare.

Want more proof?

Pics JZ Festival

Mr.Windmill & Jay.Soul at JZ Fest 2010 pics

Here’s a link to some pics of my Mr.Windmill & Jay.Soul gig at Shanghai’s annual JZ Festival, 16 October on the Antidote Groove Stage. Only played our own tunes and got help from Willow Neilson (Australia) on tenor saxophone and Hwa Fu (Taiwan) on flugelhorn & trumpet. Great collabo, really enjoyed it.

To celebrate our gig tomorrow at Shanghai’s biggest music event JZ Festival, we’ve decided to make both Mr.Windmill & Jay.Soul EP’s a free download at Bandcamp for a limited time!

Free as in: costing €0,00. A quick conversion learns this roughly translates to a mere $0.00 and also equals around a very affordable 0,00元..

500 downloads max, so get them both while you can: Shanghaii Lights EP & Perculationn EP. Then, as always, play loud and enjoy.

Rocking With Rich

Click to see bigger image

If you’re anywhere near Shanghai, come check my good friend Rich Medina gracing the decks at The Shelter this Friday. For those that don’t know, Rich is one of the world’s top dj’s when it comes to playing a mix of funk & soul, afrobeat, hip-hop, deep house and more.

Among many other things: he’s been holding down a 8 year weekly (yes, that is WEEKLY) residence at New York’s hotspot APT (Lil Ricky’s Ribshack), did a weekly party with none other than Tribe Called Quest’s Q-Tip over the past year and is the mastermind behind the hugely popular Jump ‘n’ Funk Afrobeat parties in NYC and beyond. He’s also travelled to most corners of the world to lay his funk on the masses. Oh and he’s a spoken word artist and producer too.

Support by The Lab dj’s and yours truly.
