For this week’s show, I wanted to play a few rarities related to Michael Jackson, so I reached into the archives for a few very cool things, including one from the “Motown Remixed Vol. 2” CD, the Miami mix of the Jackson 5’s “Dancing Machine,” which reimagines the Jackson 5 as a satin-shirted salsa band in Miami. Pretty cool stuff, actually. I also played Todd Terje’s remix of “Can’t Help It,” the original of which tends to be overlooked on “Off the Wall.”
Other good stuff of note this week: The new “Viagem 2” compilation of Brazilian music from the ’60s, put together by Nicola Conte, the outstanding downtempo/ambient CD “Grains” by Nuremberg-based Boozoo Bajou, and the new release by Brazilian singer Clara Moreno, “Miss Balanco.”
The entire setlist is here as a Google Spreadsheet.
