#530 :: Kingston Factory Presents ... The East Coast Sessions (12 December 2018)

New sounds from around the globe to start this episode off, then a full entire album. 
We play entire albums on GO FEET! Radio for one reason, because they're damn good. Period. Kingston Factory Presents East Coast Sessions is one of those albums. It's so good we fell in love with it from our first listen. It features loads of top musicians and producers on the modern scene with strong links to the originators of Jamaican music. Producer Esteban Descalzo has done a marvelous job. You can purchase Kingston Factory Presents…The East Coast Sessions from Liquidator Music.

528 :: Guns of Auckland Ska Fest, Bluesfest, and Beyond (28 November 2018)

Here's a big shout out to the Auckland Ska Festival kicking off this weekend at Galatos 3pm. A special mention here about Atsushi Moisty - he got a big shout out from David Rodigan on BBC Sounds. Here's what Atsushi had to say:

"Oh wow, I have never thought that my song would be played on BBC. This made my day!! David Rodigan played Sound of the Ska (early classic from the Moisties which is also on Rudies All Around compilation - worldwide release). And I have never thought that David Rodigan would complement the recording by comparing to Federal Studios recording of Jamaica. If anyone wants to listen, follow this link, it’s around 1 hour 12ish. I just feel very humble. More life!"

In the mix as well are tracks from more artists just announced for Bluesfest Byron Bay 2019. And a whole lot of tasty tracks to help you ease into the weekend. Enjoy.

#527 :: Trojan Records / Pama Spotlight (21 November 2018)

People that are a part of fandoms love to come up with debates about the superiority of one versus another: Star Wars vs. Star Trek, Marvel vs. DC, and so on. One that I’m surprised I haven’t heard too often from the reggae side of things is Trojan vs Pama. Seeing as they were the two big UK record companies operating in the late ‘60s/early ‘70s, it seems only natural that fans of the genre would try to pit them against one another. Since Trojan is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, and Pama is celebrating 51 year, we thought we’d put together a mix of tunes released on both labels (and their many subsidiaries)! 

Harry J All Stars - Liquidator (Trojan/Harry J)
Joya Landis - Out The Light (Trojan)
The Pioneers - I Need Your Sweet Inspiration (Trojan)
The Maytals - Watermelon (Trojan)
Symarip - You’re Mine (Trojan)

The Dynamites - John Public (Duke)
I-Roy & The Jumpers - Hot Bomb (Green Door)
Neasden Connection - Tchaikovsky Piano Concerto, No. 1 (Horse)
Scotty - Sesame Street (Song Bird)
Dandy Livingstone - Sister Big Stuff (Big Shot) 

Alton Ellis - My Time Is The Right Time (Pama)
The Viceroys - Chariot Coming (Bullet)
Mr. Foundation - Maga Dog (Supreme)
Derrick Morgan - Man Pon Moon (Crab)
Little Roy - Bongo Nyah (Camel)
The Soul Rhythms - Soul Call (Gas)
