Three on a Thursday #37

Erm, yeah – a bit late. Long days at work leads to me sitting down with a beer, which leads to a lack of motivation to blog – well, a short attention span, which is much the same thing.

Managed to get my shit together for long enough this evening to drop a smidge of science for you though, never fear – which this week consists of glitch-hop, hip-hop and some silly bassy funky nonsense …

I’ve been a fan of Gramatik since I heard a few of his tracks on a Cold Busted sampler a couple of years back, and this latest scuzzy synth-laden squelchy hiphop tweak of the Gossip‘s Dimestore Diamond is a cracker. If you like this sort of thing , it seems he’s fallen out with his old label for milking money from his back catalogue, so if you check out his facebook fan page he’s encouraging people to download his entire back catalogue …

I do have a soft spot for French hip-hop – there seems to be something about the flow of the language which just sounds cool as fuck – and was espousing this school of thought to a French friend of mine, Neil-Olivier – much wine had been consumed of course – and running through my collection of Saian Supa Crew, DJ Cam and Fonky Family  He was amazed I’d never heard of Akhenaton, and showed me this quality track called C’est Ça Mon Frère – I reckon this could become a stalwart of my ‘lazy summery hip-hop set.

Last up this week are yet another bunch of Canadian Ghetto Funk Monkeys, the Funk Hunters. They’ve just dropped the rather tasty Harvest Edits EP for free over on the Ghetto Funk blog, and its stacked to the brim with belters. Pick of the litter for me is the first track, Why Did You Do It which takes the Stretch original, and thoroughly violates it with a wobble. Noice.
