I’m back again to delight your ears with more odd bleeps, beats, breaks and wobbles (whilst shamelessly pimping gigs obviously)
Oh, did I mention gigs? If you’re about in Bristol over the weekend I’ll be giving it the beans upstairs at Big Chill Bristol with Trilby Tricks, whilst P.O.D.G.E., Ewan Hoozami, Slim Goodgroove and the mighty Featurecast go large in the main bar. Would be ace to see you there!
Right – tunes!
Despite the entire Greek economy going tits up at the moment, some chaps still have the time to concentrate on the important things in life – namely making quality beats. Panama Cardoon is back and hitting us with one of the sickest horn lines I’ve heard in ages. Oye! is a serious slab of summer fun, which in a summer as crap as the last one has been, is a much welcome relief – I defy you to listen to this and not crack a grin … and if you like it, keep an eye on Spring Strut Records over the next few weeks …
Next up is a refix of the Tempo Riddim by arch reggae-hop wizard and Nice Up! records stalwart J-Star. He’s hammered vocals from hip-hop royalty in the form of Cypress Hill and Wyclef Jean over the top to give us Tempo Bye Bye, originally the flip to the limited 7″ Hot Sleng Dubplate from ’07 . Boom indeed.
Last one this week is a banger which winged it’s way to my inbox from across the Irish Sea, courtesy of Johnnypluse and the Bulabeats boys. Dusty Tonez has dropped som seriously burbling synth bass, a set of slinky guitar stabs and quality drum line give you Ghetto Maestro.
The single drops on the 26th September, over on Junodownload (with some damn tasty remixes I might add)
