Back in 1997, I was invited by Valentino Kanziani to play at “Morning Grooves”, the Sunday morning at slovenian club Ambasada Gavioli. For many years to come, after playing Saturday night, me and my blond dreadlocks would jump in my Fiat 127 and drive to Slovenia. What music do you play at an after-hour? It was usually a very different selection from what you would listen during the night from the same DJs, it was much deeper atmospheres, with jazz or ethnic influences, it was still dance music and most of the people came because that’s what they wanted to dance to, but now and then you would also get one fella too high on something begging you to play harder in front of the DJ booth. Alas! Seeing what is played at after-hours nowadays it seems like the latter have prevailed.
During the first few minutes, you can hear the classic consumed tape noise, the record is Loni Clark “Rushing” (Mood ll Swing Dub) and ironically it goes like “I won’t slow down, no, can’t can’t slow down!”
