James Holland presents a fresh analysis of the legendary 1943 Dam Busters raid, a low-level night mission that took 19 Lancaster bombers deep into the heart of enemy territory to destroy German dams with a brand new weapon - the bouncing bomb. Of the many extraordinary things about the Dams raid, the biggest is that it almost never happened. When finally green lit, it set off an incredible race against time to form and train a new squadron. Their mission was to deliver a weapon that did not yet exist. Unprecedented by any scale, and even more remarkable because the crews were not the experienced elite that legend sometimes suggests, Holland believes this truly is the greatest raid of all time.

House, Funk, Disco

Although not primarily known as a DJ, Los Angeles electrofunk hero Dam Funk boasts a killer record collection. That much is proved by this superb contribution to the DJ Kicks series. This DJ-friendly digital edition is chock full of highlights, from the deep, synth-heavy modern boogie of Moon B's superb "Ooof", and the bouncy, deep Chicago house of Gemini's "Log In", to the smooth, eyes-closed Yacht Rock grooves of "True To Yourself" by Terry Palkovic. Predictably, he's also found room for a string of lesser-known boogie and synth-funk gems, including all 14 minutes of Randall & Schippers' smooth "Love Jam", the sparkling boogie-soul of Take Three's "Tonight's The Night (For Love)", and a killer chunk of 1983 electro from Uncle Jamm's Army ("Dial-A-Freak", an early outing from The Egyptian Lover and friends).

Ambient, Modern Classical

Mary Lattimore’s music functions as a kind of emotional synesthesia. Rather than seeing colours when she hears notes, Lattimore feels things: sadness, hope, longing, memory. She funnels all of that into stirring songs composed on her harp. “I feel like a lot of my music is me channeling feelings or memories,” she says. “I just do whatever I want, and try to paint a picture of a memory.” The memory that provides the basis for At the Dam is particularly striking. Lattimore received a prestigious fellowship from the Pew Center for Arts & Heritage — a rare honor given out to just 12 people every year — and she used the funds to take a road trip across America with a friend, writing and recording songs at each stop along the way.
