Here are all of DJDaveAardvark's jams.
by Marvin Gaye
Watch Mad Professor remix Marvin Gaye live, on a radio show!
Jammed: 21st Sep 2015
by Owiny Sigoma Band
New wave electronica fused with Kenyan music, kind of...... Unique band with a great sound. The whole album - Nyanza - is fantastic, and this song is probably my favorite song of the year so far....
Jammed: 16th Sep 2015
by Ghetto Brothers
The Ghetto Brothers band were members of the New York gang, The Ghetto Brothers, who were instrumental in brokering a truce amongst rival gangs in New York - an event seen by some as the beginning of Hop Hop Culture. And they made some mighty fine funk! (If you want to know more details, see the film Rubble Kings)
Jammed: 9th Sep 2015
by Duke Ellington & His Orchestra
Produced by pioneering Krautrock engineer/producer, Connie Plank (!), Afrique is an absolute classic - only released recently, but instantly one of my favourite Ellington pieces....
Jammed: 9th Aug 2015
by Jack Bruce
Beautiful solo version from German TV program "Swing In".
Jammed: 18th Nov 2014
by Mississippi John Hurt
Jammed: 4th Nov 2014
by Screamin' Jay Hawkins
Being a B-side it's not too well known - but I think it's one of his best!
Jammed: 1st Nov 2014
by James Brown
Not usually into celebrities doing adverts but this one's great....
Jammed: 28th Oct 2014
by X-Ray Spex
One of my favourite tunes as a child, and I still love it to bits....
Jammed: 22nd Oct 2014
by The Space Lady
The Space Lady is one of the most utterly charming & idiosyncratic street performers going, and over the years has become a cult figure. I think this is probably my favourite cover of a Beatles song....
Jammed: 12th Oct 2014
by Neneh Cherry (with Rocketnumbernine)
This is really something special.... The music Neneh Cherry is making now will never be as famous as some of her early stuff, but for me she's only just starting to make her best music..... Here's an extended live version of Weightless.....
Jammed: 25th Jul 2014
by Pastor & Mrs. Jim Colerick
Here's something which scores 11 out of 10 on the What-The-Fuck-Ometer.....
Jammed: 7th Jul 2014
by Véronique Vincent & Aksak Maboul
Amazing unreleased avant electro-pop from the early 80s finally about to get a release on Crammed Discs. This has instantly become one of my favourite tunes of the early 80s......
Jammed: 24th Jun 2014
by Gal Costa
#BrazilWeek Gal performs a revolutionary political anthem live on TV. The song's author, Caetano Veloso was jailed and then exiled by the military government shortly after this performance. See this link for the context: http://hackingportuguese.com/2013/03/divino-maravilhoso/
Jammed: 14th Jun 2014
by Sun Ra
It's 100 years since Sun Ra arrived on earth! So, to celebrate Sun Ra Centenary, here's a unique video the Arkestra made with Bill Sebastian. Bafflingly, this version has not been released on any albums.....
Jammed: 21st May 2014
by Nghệ sĩ đàn bầu Vân Anh
A Vietnamese orchestra plays Ghost Riders in the Sky, with an amazing lead instrument called a đàn bầu which can sound remarkably like a Theremin at times!
Jammed: 3rd May 2014
Great German version of These Boots Are Made For Walking.....
Jammed: 20th Apr 2014
by Morton Subotnick
Hugely innovative 60s electronic piece. While the sound textures are typical of early electronica, the pulsing looped rhythms are an innovation. Recently reissued (and nicely mastered) on vinyl.
Jammed: 1st Apr 2014
by Barbara Lynn
The single came out in 62, and judging by the outfits I'd guess this clip is from then too - but it's unusual for a music clip from then to be in colour. Anyway, it's great soulful ballad...Enjoy!
Jammed: 6th Mar 2014
by Rufus Thomas
Joyous dancing to the wonderfully eccentric Rufus Thomas, live at the Wattstax festival. One of my favourite music clips!
Jammed: 1st Mar 2014
by Merry Clayton
Great soulful rendition of the Neil Young song from Merry Clayton (best known for singing on the Stones "Gimme Shelter". She also did a great solo version of "Gimme Shelter").
Jammed: 6th Feb 2014
by Sun Ra Arkestra
Great live footage from the Montreux Festival. There's a double album of this gig, but none of these tracks are on it - their sets were always far too long to fit on an album in their entirety...
Jammed: 14th Jan 2014
by Charles Mingus
Mingus & Eric Dolphy at their peak.... Breathtaking!
Jammed: 21st Dec 2013
by Urbano de Castro
From the first LP recorded & pressed in Angola, which has just been reissued as "Rebita - Analog Africa Limited Dance Edition No.4", this is quite simply one of the most glorious songs I've ever heard......
Jammed: 25th Nov 2013
by Muddy Waters
Great footage from the 1960 Newport Jazz Festival....
Jammed: 28th Oct 2013
Wait! There's more…
