I’ve been meaning to put this up since catching yet another brilliant set from Toby Kaar in the Pavillion over the festive period. The man’s an expert at getting people to throw ridiculous shapes on the dancefloor with his eclectic sound. This remix from Fela Kuti is one of the my favourite’s from Toby, it just gets funkier with every listen. His soundcloud page is open for business again so get downloading. Also check out this hilarious interview with Toby from December.
You may notice that I’ve not chosen Gorrilaz as one of this weeks three recommendations. It’s not an oversight, I simply never have and never will understand the hype about them. I really tried with Plastic Beach but I’m afraid I’ve thrown the towel in on Albarn and co at this stage. Darwin Deez gets the nod for his dancing displays.
