Stinky Jim - Friday Night Set

Stinky Jim is the host of 95bFM’s long running, weekly Stinky Grooves radio show. Unlike the firm focus on strictly new and upcoming material that characterises Stinky Grooves, Jim’s Friday night sets at Love Bucket are a curated stroll through a lifetime’s worth of music love, listening and involvement.

Ranging from raw rockabilly, country and premium grade rock’n’roll to crucial cumbia, righteous reggae, simmering soul and feisty funk as well as most points in-between Jim’s 6+ hour sets are never predictable and impeccably plotted..

Corysco’s passion for vinyl and the fusing of the contemporary with the old-school further developed back home in Brazil. In 2013 Corysco moved to France, quickly becoming a familiar name in the Parisian nightlife, consistently performing in many well-know clubs and bars around the city.
