Ah, the delights of playing tunes with your mates, drinking a few beers and then attempting to write a blog post – oh dear …
Get a little excited as I’m writing this one – incoming WHOMP night this Friday at Basement 45 in Bristol. Sadly the front room is mostly house ( 🙂 ), but myself and a few good buddies with be bringing a fat sack of party breaks and beats (as well as some minging knitwear) to rock room two – schaaaaaawing!
Onwards to the tunage!
First up this week is a track from an old favourite, Jim Sharp – bringing back the totally classic James Brown beats, and twisting a G-Funk-esque line around it to give you 6 Million Drummers Get Wicked. Familiar samples, but done really very nicely.
It wouldn’t be a Three on a Thursday if it was funk-free, and this week it comes in that meaty, beaty, big and bouncy flavour named ‘Ghetto Funk’ – so Ghetto Funk in fact, that that’s the name of the label that this track from J-Roc is being released on.
A mellow slice of hip-hop from the wrong side of the Severn Bridge for you last this week. DJ Killer Tomato was last seen on this blog hiding behind a wall of mental scratches on his excellent reworking (and revox) of Nas & Damien Marley’s smash ‘As We Enter‘ , but he’s toned down the scribble skills this time round on Graff Track. No idea who the MCs are, but it sounds pretty damn tidy to me.
According to the blurb that accompanies this track, it’s an exclusive of the soon coming Hard Copy Mixtape – I’ll definitely be keeping an eye out for that one
