Prince’s Acoustic ‘I Feel For You’ Demo, Fresh From The Vault

In 1984, Chaka Khan enjoyed a career-revitalizing smash with “I Feel for You,” a spangly, funky, Grammy-winning R&B crossover that featured a harmonica solo from Stevie Wonder and a guest rap from Melle Mel. The track had already been covered on records by The Pointer Sisters and Rebbie Jackson, as well as Prince‘s self-titled second album, but Khan’s version is the one that became a classic. Before any of those versions, though, the song existed only as an unreleased acoustic demo by Prince, who was just 20 at the time.

So nice to hear this on a Saturday morning, In honor of the 40th anniversary of Prince’s second album, The Prince Estate and Warner Records are pleased to announce the surprise release of a previously unheard, solo acoustic demo recording of the Grammy-winning Prince track “I Feel for You,” available on streaming services and as a limited-run 7” vinyl single.

MUSIC DOCUMENTARY: MIGUELITO + Q&A by Sam Zubrycki | Groovescooter

Sydney DJ, Crate DIgger, Musician & Film Maker, Sam Zubrycki made this amazing documentary that traces the disappearance of the Puerto Rican singer Miguelito and the rediscovery of his life and music decades later.

Watch the Australian Premier this weekend as part of Antenna Film Festival & presented by our good friends at Groovescooter.

Happening tomorrow at Palace Cinema in Paddington.
Info below

Sam Zubrycki | Australia | 2019 | 93 min | Australian Premiere

In 1973, an album by an 11-year-old salsa singer was played by every radio station in Colombia and Puerto Rico.

Discovered by renowned New York record producer Harvey Averne, Miguelito’s early success rescued him from poverty, but his subsequent disappearance and the cult status of his one album became an obsession for Australian filmmaker Sam Zubrycki.

An upbeat road trip through Latin America becomes a quest to find Miguelito and the reason for his mysterious vanishing, uncovering memories from many fans affected by his music, alongside wonderful performances showcasing the musical depth of the Caribbean.

The tale of a once-forgotten salsero is brought beautifully to life.

Sam Zubrycki is a guest of the festival and will take part in a Q&A after the screening Co-presented with Groovescooter
