Oops – missed one.
Sorry guys, life got in the way … means I’ve dug a bit deeper this week though
If you like the tunes I drop on the blog, then pop down to Mr Wolfs this Saturday night for a 4 hour sesh of the finest bouncy beaty tunage to make you dance. G’wan, it’ll be ace.
Just a quick update on September’s gigs, I’ll be back with those lovely lovely lads at WHOMP on the 29th at Basement 45 giving it the beans in Room 2 alongside the beats and breaks boys, whilst Room 1 gets all chunky house.
If you can’t wait that long, I’m giving it the super-sub treatment for one of Bristol’s finest, Ewan Hoozami, at Mr Wolfs on Saturday night, from midnight.
Do pop down, there’s a love.
Darlingtons finest funk band (ok, it’s not a long list, but still, these guys and gals are damn good, so hear me out) Weekend Sun are back with another batch of beats on Hero Records.
The title track, You’re Good To Me is a proper funk shuffler with a beautiful soul vocal from Esther Taylor. Cracking litle sax solo in there as well.
The flip side, Her Name Escapes Me is a far mellower affair, with slinky strings and a bossa-nova beat that hits the perfect ‘summer evening’ vibe.
On remix duty for the A side are the Renegades of Jazz, who lift the energy levels and drop a stack load more horns on it – always a popular move in my book – before a triple play from Hero No 7. with the Distant Hero and a pair of B-Boy mixes, the first of which makes things a little darker before the latter two sign out with a properly beaty take on life
If you’re liking the sounds, it drops on 28 August on limited edition 7″ vinyl via Kudos, and digitally soon after.
Three quarters of the way to the Century … can’t quite believe it. By my count that’s 225 hand picked, lovingly curated tunes I’ve educated you lot with – the least you can do is come to my next gig at Number 51, Stokes Croft tomorrow <- shameless plug or what
Ahem, sorry about that. Music you say?
Ooops – a little late with this one, mostly due to ‘going for a quick pint’ with a mate last night, which lead to a messy pub crawl and a horrendous head this morning.
Well, less wittering, more tunes.
The collabo list on Mr Boss’s The Landing II reads like a who’s who of UK Hip-hop right now, with everyone from the young thrusters Fliptrix and Ramson Badbonez from High Focus to the (relatively) old heads of the scene, Stig of the Dump and Dr Syntax, so this promises much … does it deliver?
Quick blurb this week, as I’m hella busy, Just a quick note to let you know I’ll be spinning some mellow beats at The Volunteer, for their little beer festival tomorrow
