Fusing the soulful sounds of the 80s such as Rare Groove & New Jack Swing with a new skool off kilter Hip-hop sound and touches of House, Stevie J aka West London based beat maker, Funkineven 1956 steps nicely into the warm, fuzzy and funkadafied musical family that is Eglo Records alongside fellow siblings Floating Points, Fatima and Shuanise.

And seeing as we're steppin' into that Gilles Peterson / Ross Allen type territory with these it's a good excuse to drop a couple of Seiji tracks aimed at the other end of the dancefloor, some dope Broken Beatish bounce alongs. Now I know there's some emcees out there that could jump on these and bring a bit more of our flavour to them, you might even find a few more over at his blog too.
