Three on a Thursday #24

Evening all – apologies for the lateness of this week’s Three on a Thursday – the bad thing about buggering off to Cornwall for a long weekend means that the work piles up for my return. ICK. Never fear though, Three on a Thursday is still here to warm you up for the weekend.

I’d also like to say ‘ta!’ to the Funk Hunters for featuring my Hip to the Hop mix on their weekly mixtape dig! – I wondered why the number of listens it was getting had shot up today …

If you like this kind of thing, I’m playing at Timbuk2 for the Dub Box Summer Sessions this Friday, giving it some red-hot room 2 action, so pop down and say hello if you’re about

First this week is a reworking of a classic Etta James track, All The Way Down by a bloke called Simon’s Said, who’s given it a little tweak and tightened the bass and drums up, which is just what was needed . I picked up on this one thanks to the rather awesome Prince of Ballard, whose Armed Snobbery blog should be required reading for you all.

Next is a combination of a couple of previous features from the Three on a Thursday – Panama Cardoon’s Jazzybell featured in TOAT #18 and Fab Samperi’s Alcoholic Drinks turned up way back in TOAT #6. Panama has been working his magic again, taking what is a belting source track and adding an acapella of Mos Def’s Next Universe over it, to give you Alcoholic Universe (Panama Cardoon Edit).

Summery jazzy vibes, combined with one of hip-hops finest spitting over the top – don’t mind if I do …

Last up is an odd little number from the Philthkids called Looking for Another Love. It’s lovely little mellow late night track, with some quality rounded kickdrums and straight-out-of the-808 school sounding claps/snares, but it fairly bounces along at a stonking 150bpm or so, which apparently this is fairly common for Juke/Footwerk tunes – check out some of the crazy dance routines these kids have got going on …
