"We still do it real old school:" JBX playing 70s soul on WNYU's "Downtown Affair"

Thanks to P i  o  t r: Maayan Nidam's captivating set of gliding strings, clackety cowbells, jazz-funk bass-lines and renegade synths over at Resident Advisor

And thanks to Matos for alerting me to this intensely out-there set from nsi. from a couple weeks back. As he described it:
