Mix Forty Three

Mix Forty Three falls on New Years Eve 2011 and so there's one or two tracks chosen especially for the occasion, which we think you'll enjoy. This mix features the return of Willie Bobo, the Isley Brothers, Bill Withers, McFadden & Whitehead and The Round Robin Monopoly for the first time, as well as Slave, Earth Wind and Fire, Vernon Burch, Kinsman Dazz band, Incognito and Prince. Mix Forty Three is just what you need to see in the new year! Thanks for listening and we wish you all the best for 2012.

Image of the month

This month's image is of Patrice Rushen taken during her performance in London this summer, which VibeRide was at and thoroughly enjoyed. I like the unusual angle of this photo and how the purple and blue light has the effect of highlighting Patrice against the background. Check out michaelvalentinestudio.com for more images from the gig.

Mix Forty Two

Mix Forty Two takes you into Christmas 2011 and is your funk-filled cracker. It features Alton McClain & Destiny and solo work from Philip Bailey for the first time, as well as Chic, Incognito, David Bendeth, T-Connection, Sister Sledge, George Duke, Prince and Donald Byrd who celebrated his 79th birthday recently. Forget the cheesy Christmas songs, get some funky & soulful grooves on.
