Three on a Thursday #70


Another week, another trio of top tunes!

Aren’t you lot lucky!

There are some samples which are so good, they crop up again and again and again. Indeed some that entire genres of music are built around.  Hardly Subtle know their stuff and have put together a tour of one of the more famous hooks to have done the rounds.

Sampling the Mac Miller ‘original’, Dave Remix and Aldo Vannucci drop their Party On 5th Ave (Hardly Subtle Education Mix), taking snippets of the best of the tunes that’ve used the same Marva Whitney sample, including Mark the 45 King’s  900 numberChad Jackson’s Hear The Drummer Get Wicked,  DJ Kool’s Let Me Clear my Throat, and no doubt some others that I’ve missed, all in a Jive Bunnys megamix stylee.

Quality stuff.

If you play this next tune enough, maybe the gods will smile on us, and actually give us the weather to go with it

I first picked up on Backbeat Soundsystem when they provided the vocals on a Racakbeat and Bar-Low track, and they’ve returned in short order with Fighting Bull. Proper summery UK reggae ahoy.

I reviewed the latest cut from this next artist earlier on this week, and in the ensuing banter over Facebook, he pointed me at his ‘very different’ previous release called Vanish

Frameworks E.P. is a belter, with its four tracks taking cues from the polyrhythmic beats of Lamb and Thievery Corporation, the soaring mellowness of The Cinematic Orchestra, and the analogue lusciousness of Bonobo

In short, it’s the tits, and picking a single track off it to feature here was hard, but, if it has to be one, it has to be Somehow.

But seriously, bung him a couple of quid and bag the lot.
