A little late to the party today, but better late than never ‘eh.
Been a quiet week on the music front over here at Chateau Sherlock, but a little digging has turned up some right gems for you, with nufunk treats, hip-hop feats and some utterly slablike concrete beats to finish you off with …
Picked up on the Funkanizer a couple of weeks back, due to the lovely Mr Spinforth of the Hong Kong Ping Pong posse when he scoured one of their previous efforts over on the mighty Ghetto Funk blog. Their latest offering, Black Wavy Funk flicks all my switches, combining as it does an overdriven guitar hook with just a touch of wobbly bass underneath it, old school funk and hip-hop cuts and some lovely little vocal samples. A quality little horn line caps it all off, and makes it a shoe-in for Three on a Thursday.
I was introduced to Homeboy Sandman‘s number, The Carpenter, by DJ Moneyshot after he dropped it at his weekly Peep This! night at the Bank of Stokes Croft last night (which was excellent, and I highly recommend you bang it in your diary for the forseeable future). Lifting a horn line that sounds like it should’ve come from Bullit, and a drum break with a gorgeous cymbal line, not to mention Homeboys totally sick flow this slice of indie hip-hop has ‘sure fire winner’ written all over it. The video ain’t bad either
Last one from me this week is a bit chunkier than my usual selections. Robot Koch has done a number on Stagga‘s Wild for the Night, giving is the most beastly bassline since Radioactiveman / Uranium, but with a lovely, wonky hip-hop vibe to it. Top Darts.
