⏩ Lets fast forward a few years from last week to March 2011 for Marie Howard Shaw’s #FinesseFriday selection, Funky House Finesse 36.
This week’s mix from the archives takes us on a thorough house music journey from the soulful sounds of Frankie Knuckles and Shapeshifters through to some banging club anthems from the likes of Olav Basoski and Lenny Fontana.
Massive thanks to Marie Howard Shaw for her selection this week – another long-time listener and supporter of the podcast who discovered our mixes at a 2009 beach party in Montenegro and has been listening ever since. Great choice demonstrating how our sounds have evolved through the decades too.
