Three on a Thursday #50


Wow – #50, how did that happen?

Seems like it was only yesterday that I was working out what exactly I could do with this blog, other than putting my own mixes up on here and decided to share a few of the audio gems that my incessant music geekery found out, and here I am a year later (yes, I know, I missed a couple) having shared 150 tracks.

Speaking of which, lets get onto to the tunes shall we?

 

Kicking off with the dulcit tones of Chuck D , before hitting the flute loops hard, like a crunked up Ron Burgundy, Blackbeard’s Delight is a proper little booty shaking little mid-tempo stomper from Breakbeat Junkie vs DJP. I especially like the dropout in the middle with the crowd noise …

Coming soon on Big M Productions

Old School Reggae/Dancehall/Booty shaking breaks legend meets the New School on this next cut, with Monkey Mafia and Mr Benn teaming up to give us a  serious slice of skanking goodness. Currently the top contender in the ‘bouncing bassline’ category for far this year, this is Royal Ascot (Mr Benn Remix).  Out soon on Nice Up!

I will forgive them for rhyming ‘Rasta‘ with ‘Pasta‘ – if anyone else tries it mind …

With vocal harmonies that seem to hark back to the 70’s, combined with thoroughly up to date hip-hop vibe, big funking basslines, and some red hot sampler action – it’s got to be those scamps Three Kings High. I’m fairly sure I’ve heard a version of You Ain’t Saying Nothing New before, but as it wasn’t the completed work it doesn’t disqualify it for Three on a Thursday. If you like your soul served with attitude then wrap your ears around this one. There’s also a ‘guys and gal working hard in the studio’ video to go with it.
