Matt spans the full show this week, giving part 1 an easy summer build up of quiet storm soul/funk. Curtis Mayfield on a hot summer night in Chicago is tough to beat! Breaking with a catchy oddball from Kid Creole, we move into deep 313-style house and abstract moods from Russ Gabriel and Rick Wilhite to Dan Bell’s Elevate imprint into one of Prince’s finest basement party cuts.

Part 2 chugs on with a little italo disco sequenced into recent melodic techno funk from Italy, jetting to Detroit techno from UR, Aril Brikha and Drexciya, which cracks the door to crucial breakdance-era electro from Jamie Jupitor and Newcleus. Space bleeps from UK’s B12 chart the course, and deep space electronics from the godfather Juan Atkins floats us among the constellations.
