Three on a Thursday #68


Hmmm, lesson learned today. Trying to brew beer and write a music blog is harder than you think …

After the almighty palaver we’ve had with todays brew, what with stuck sparges, duff thermometers and minor burns, I’m glad I’m only having to listen to tunes now

Oh tunes? Right this way …

First up this week is a track from yesterdays review – incestuous or what eh? – Mash and Munkee‘s debut is a corker, and the opening track, Here We Come! should do the business. Big jazz funk horns, quality drum break and some b-boy teasing bass, this is a tour de force in modern dancefloor orientated Funk.

Next up is on a bit more of a mellow tip. I’ve been a fan of Ralph Ripshit since I first heard his vocal on a Secondson beat for Ralph’s Party (which coincidentally was when I first heard DJ Moneyshot cut). This is the first piece of his since the mighty Best Name 12″ that’s really flicked my switches, and its flicked them HARD.

Something  is  a mellow slice of summery hip-hop with Ralph turning his talented vocal tricks over the top. No-no-no, the track is  called Something, I’m not just being vague. Props to JeeJaa on the beat on this one, it’s smooth like butta …

Last up this week is a classic soul cut from the late great Solomon Burke. I knew odd and sods of his work, but I’d never heard None Of Us Are Free, till this week and it’s brilliant. Blues drenched swirling organ line, lovely snare work and a heartfelt vocal – this is how it should be done.

(HT to Photocritic for the heads up
