Three on a Thurday #79

Bit of a quick one tonight – busybusybusy

Onwards to the tunes ‘eh?

I’m a big fan of the work of both of these first two artists. DJ Nu-mark manned the tables behind one of the greatest hip-hop groups of the mid-late 90’s, Jurassic 5, whilst Quantic  has spent ten years conquering genres from Soul & Jazz to Electronic thru to Latin, Reggae & Cumbia with  two albums under his own name plus others as Quantic Soul Orchestra, Flowering InfernoQuantic and his Combo Bárbaro and a shedload of other collaborations.

As you’d expect is a slightly off-centre mish-mash of Latin and South American samples, with some hippety-hop chucked in for good measure. Taken from his upcoming release Broken Sunshine, this is Tropocalifornia.

The Bill Withers original of Grandma’s Hands is an utter classic. Though it’s been sampled to death it’s still brilliant, and messing with it is borderline sacrilege. This version however, ain’t bad.

Whilst rummaging through old emails I spotted an old one from Wah Wah 45 label boss Scrimshire, pointing out a freebie E.P they dropped over the summer, which contained his edit of this Merry Clayton cover.

It’s rather ace.

Been a big supporter of this next lad since the days when he was merely Panue. Monetrik hits the ‘lazy summer’ button on On a Clear DayIt might be booting it down outside, but this reboot of The Peddlers / On a Clear Day You Can See Forever should brighten the mood

Obsessive music nerd for since his formative years, Sherlock Ohms finally pulled his finger out and started inflicting his collection of Funk, Soul, Hip-hop, Reggae, Breaks, Beats and random ephemera on the unwitting public in mid-2008. Since then he's graced the airwaves of Big Chill FM and Purple Radio, the stages of the Festinho festival, and the DJ booths of the UK fluffing for the likes of DJ Moneyshot, Boca 45 and Ugly Duckling. Whether it's early morning chilled wig outs, or eclectic party starting beat fests there's a reason they call him 'No Shit Sherlock' View all posts by djsherlockohms
