Note From Dada!
O ένας σκωτζέζος και επιτυχημένος Dj (Keb Darge) και ο άλλος βρετανός μουσικός-τραγουδοποιός (Paul Weller), γνωστός εκτός από τη σόλο καριέρα του και για την συμμετοχή του στο συγκρότημα τον Jam. Τα δύο αυτά καλόπαιδα, που όπως αναφέρεται και στο ένθετο γνωρίστηκαν στην τουαλέτα ενός πάρτυ καθώς "συγχρονίστηκαν οι ανάγκες τους", μοιράζονται εξ' αδιαιρέτου αυτό το cd, βγάζοντας στην επιφάνεια διάφορα R'n'B και Soul διαμάντια των δεκαετιών 1950-1960, από τις πολύτιμες δισκοθήκες τους.
Ενδιαφέρον παρουσιάζουν τα κομμάτια που επιλέγει ο Weller, γιατί εκτός της δισκογραφικής και μουσικής τους σημασίας, αναγνωρίζεις ότι κρύβουν και κάποιες από τις επιρροές του ως  μουσικού και τραγουδιστή.

Καλή Ακρόαση

About Keb Darge
Keb Darge is a Scottish DJ of the genres of Northern Soul and Deep Funk music.
He began his career in local disco dance competitions (dancing in the "northern soul style") in the North of Scotland, and made an appearance in the nationally televised 1979 UK disco dance finals. He was also a dancer for the Wigan Casino, whilst collecting Northern Soul records. Soon after, he was DJing in Wigan at a club next to the casino, and around Scotland as well with his record collection throughout the 1970s.

At the age of 22, Darge moved to London, ceasing to be a DJ. Music promoters from then approached him, asking him to come back to DJing. He obliged, and gave the Northern Soul phenomenon exposure in London through his performances, bringing in people from northern England to move to London who were previously associated with Wigan's Northern Soul scene before it dissolved.

After a while, Keb sold off most of his northern soul records due to a divorce in 1987, he remarried twice since but both marriages again ended in divorce, he is now happily married to a woman from the Philippines. Meanwhile he worked in various jobs: butchers boy,window cleaner even delivering leaflets to make ends meet. But he had left over in his loft many other records of what he then referred to as "junk music" that he picked up in the United States on his many jaunts to find northern soul records there and in the UK. This "junk music" would be the beginning of what Keb would later call "Deep Funk", having underestimated the potential of these leftover records.

In 1989, during the heyday of acid house in the UK, Keb decided to play these funk records, and managed for a short while to get a night to perform regularly at "The Wagclub", a club specializing in acid jazz. After his night there ended around 1992-93, he met fellow funk record collector Mark Cotgrove, aka Snowboy, at Club Ormones in London where the first funk-only night in the city was held, called "Deep Funk". The night was named by Keb (he would later go on to use the name to describe the sound of the funk records he would play), but arranged by the club owners.

After this, Keb and Snowboy wanted to further expand on the "deep funk" sound, and decided to start their own all-funk night in on old restaurant, but this failed to catch on after a few months due to the burgeoning popularity of house music in the UK at the time, forcing Keb and Snowboy to close up shop there.

But shortly afterward, they heard about a venue called Madame Jo-Jo's, a strip club located in the Soho district of London. They managed to arrange with the club a night for them to perform weekly. The club accommodated them, and Keb & Snowboy's funk nights there became an instant success (and still are the leading club nights for funk in London today). Madame Jo-Jo's closed down their strip nights, becoming a full-time music club, partly due to Keb's success there.

Today, Keb still holds a funk night at the club every Friday, called "Legendary Deep Funk". He also tours around the world DJing, and also runs a record label, Kay-Dee, with fellow funk aficionado & producer Kenny Dope.

He has released several albums of compiled classic deep funk tracks, most notably the Funk Spectrum and Keb Darge's Deep Funk compilations released on BBE Records. Keb Darge is a leading authority on deep funk & soul music of the 60s and 70s, and has achieved practically legendary status among his peers.

Besides DJing and helping to produce the modern-day funk group The New Mastersounds, Keb is also quite experienced in martial arts, having been a former Tae Kwon Do world champion, he has a passion for militaria and is an avid collector of military miniatures.

In 1995 Keb had a cameo part in the cult surf film Blue Juice starring Sean Pertwee and Catherine Zeta Jones, where he can be seen dancing in the village hall. he spends most of his time now looking after his son Harvey James Darge and his newly wed wife Edita.

About Paul Weller
Paul Weller (born John William Weller 25 May 1958), is an English singer-songwriter.
Starting with the very successful punk-rock band The Jam (1976-1982), Weller then went on to branch out musically to a more soulful style with The Style Council (1983-1989). In 1991 he re-established himself as a successful solo artist, and continues to remain a respected singer, lyricist and guitarist, a fact reaffirmed by his recent awarding of the 2009 BRIT award for 'Best Male Solo Artist'. He has remained essentially a national rather than an international star, which may be unsurprising considering much of his songwriting is rooted in British culture. He is also the principal figure of the 1970s Mod revival and is often referred to as the Modfather.
