I’m pleased to announce that Paris recently featured a guest mix by Aloha Got Soul—a mix of seven Hawaiian 7-inch records for his Seven Deadly Spins segment.
Paris introduces myself and Aloha Got Soul with factoids and tidbits in the original broadcast:
“Now, a very special treat for you all the way from Hawaii: Roger Bong is the guy behind a great website all about Hawaiian jazz, funk, soul, and rare grooves, and is the latest guest to provide an exclusive 7-inch vinyl mix for our Seven Deadly Spins segment…
“Bong moved to Hawaii when he was 7—that’s a bit spooky for our mix series, isn’t it? And he got more heavily into the island sounds via DJ Muro’s Hawaiian Breaks mix. But now he is a complete nut for the stuff himself.”

Thank you, Paris, for featuring Aloha Got Soul on Jumping The Gap! The original broadcast (1 hour 25 min) is available on Mixcloud.
Jumping The Gap on 2SER is “a weekly plunge into psych-funk, soul, disco, reggae, soundtracks, free-jazz & beyond…” But it’s more than just good music. Paris often collaborates with music aficionados on-air, including a recent broadcast featuring Gerald Short of Jazzman Records (a label which reissued Lemuria’s “Hunk of Heaven”). Paris also runs a record label called Groovescooter Records.
