Right, just to state this will not be a ‘three of the most tenuous Christmas themed bootlegs that I’ve had inflicted on me this week’. It will be a proper Three on a Thursday, with quality tunes.
First up we’re playing the bass-weight game. Regular blog-bothers Ewan Hoozami and Dave Remix have joined forces and given a wobbly workover to everyones favourite cut and slice merchants anthem The Avalanches and their classic Frontier Psychiatrist. Behold – Box Rocket present Avalanche Psychiatrist – hold on to your speakers!
Number two this week comes courtesy of Cardiff head, and fellow Purple Radio jock, Marky De Sade – as I was scrubbing the ‘net for this week tunes, he kindly dropped a link to his Top Twenty of the Year, and this acid drenched chuggy wobbler entitled Von Glooperstein originally by Hizatron, but given the ole switcheroo by everyone favourite tea-and-beat-merchant, Mr Scruff is probably the pick of the bunch for me – hypnotic wee bugger innit …
Lastly this week it’s a slow little stepper from Portugals finest, Dedy Dread. Go Miller samples a bunch of loops from the Jazz-Swing king himself and lays them over a nice little snapping beat – simple, but then that’s often best.
