Night Flight

Remember 80s Britfunk - Hi Tension, Freeez et al? Gilles Peterson (Acid Jazz founder) certainly does. Together with partner in crime Jean-Paul 'Bluey' Maunick, they recently created a throwback project - STR4TA - which reinterprets this much loved genre; keeping things tight and soulful at the back (in true 1983 style) whilst at the same time giving the grooves plenty of 2023 bandwidth to play around with. 

And with a summer ahead of us threatening some batshit crazy temperatures, I can't think of a better soundtrack to accompany it, wherever I might find myself - Medd Towers or Club Tropicana. If you've not heard them before, why not dip your toe in the water...
