The Greg Foat Group - Sci-Fi Bugalu Mix

The Greg Foat Group - Sci-Fi Bugalu Mix
(MP3 Podcast on 2011-09-31

In the interview we've just published, British pianist Greg Foat explains he's also DJing in great cities around the world, so we've thought he would be very natural contributor DJ to our great mix series. And indeed he's dug in his fine vinyl collection to cook an exclusive mix he introduces like this:
"The Sci-Fi Bugalu Mix is basically a fun party mix with a touch of sci-fi weirdness. There's a lot of classic soul jazz tracks, a couple of deep funk and crossover tracks, a bit of westcoast and some British library! It's pretty much all uptempo dancers, it's a kind of nostalgic mix to remind me of when I used to DJ out this on vinyl and dance like mad in the late 90's! I also have a lot of fond memories hunting down these records in junk shops, thrift stores, charity shops and record stores".
