I've been looking for this album for ages!
I heard the Marvin Gaye cover over three years ago (i think i was in Kings Cross and Gilles Peterson or Norman Jay were playing)but never managed to find out who it was by on the night. I like to discover these things as the world presents them so didn't invest a great deal of effort trying to find it.
I was recently in Tel Aviv and this was playing in a local bar, a quick chat with the DJ gave me what i needed and now this is on my regular playlist - looking forward to playing it this summer!
Great Album - looking forward to the next discovery.

Wow, I saw them live in Shoreditch London and straight after had to buy this album, one of the best purchases I have ever made, what a great talented group of guys. Buy it for when you are having a BBQ and you need something cool in the background, Buy it for when you are on a long commute to work and you need cheering up and, buy it when you just need to boogie!
Enjoy it folks!

a truly brilliant melding of big band jazz, hip hop, soul and blues. I discovered this after following links on related artists from another band on spotify and enjoyed it so much I bought the album (as I always still like to do) and haven't been disappointed.

I first heard Hot 8's cover of Sexual Healing when I saw Koop a couple of years back and was blown away. What a tune!!! I ran over to ask the support DJ who it was and he told me it was the Hot 8 Brass Band. Tried to order online the next day but to no avail and had forgotten all about it until I spotted that DJ Yoda had it on his Fabric album. Bless him! Found the album on amazon and ordered it straight away. No idea what the rest of the tracks are like but frankly I couldn't give a hoot, unlike those cheeky Hot 8 dudes. Buy this now and impress all your mates by sticking it on at the next party you rock up to.... Awesome!!
