Managed to make a Lazarus-eque recovery after my weekend of knocking at Deaths door - seriously the wife was on the verge of doing the Old Yeller routine, and taking me out the back of the shed and putting two between my eyes execution style if I didn’t quit my moping. Good job she saw sense, admittedly after half an hour of pleading, else you lot wouldn’t have any tunes to listen to, would you?
Here you go then!
Yet another one that’ll cause you to smile so wide you face may drop off from the multi-talented Mr JFB. Fizzy Bubla features his now familiar scratches and *that* bass sound to give you a track that goes toe to toe with the stylings of the Krafty Kuts / A-Skillz / Featurecast crew, and comes out quite nicely in the ensuing fisticuffs …
Soon to drop on Disco Cakes – keep an ear to the ground
Track 2 this week is the now-almost-mandatory slice of nufunk for you, this week provided by Mr Confuse and his rhythm and blues infused dancefloor chug. Too Hot fairly bangs along amidst a swirl of Hammond organ an a insert-collective-noun of solid boom-bap drums – maybe a crunk? – and a great duet vocal from Elaine Thomas and Dan Salem. Niceness.
Out on Legere Recordings right now
Last one from me this week is a slow nu-soul/hip-hop number from the strangely named Tall Black Guy. WaterNoEnemy takes the Fela Kuti classic from ’75 and brings it right up to date with an rework in an MPC style – though he reliably informs he uses Acid 7.0. Serious late night brilliance, right here.
