It’s (finally) Three on a Thursday time again.
Yes I know it’s Friday
No it’s not my fault. The little girl refused to sleep til 11 last night, and I didn’t have the time to do a proper job on this after those histrionics.
Tonight however …
First up is a new sound for me. I saw this one doing the rounds a couple of months back, but couldn’t lay my hands on a copy to listen to, but now I have Jus Now‘s One Time has its claws deep into me.
A mutant Soca/DnB/Brass workout number, I have no idea when I’d play this, or what the fuck I’d over mix in to it, but, by God is it GOOD!
Next one is one of the best “sounds like an old soul 45 dug out from the ’60’s but it was recorded last week in a studio in Hackney” tunes I’ve heard in a donkeys age. The Enticements have got the sound absolutely nailed on
It Ain’t Cheatin’ (If You Mean It), from the slightly ‘flat’ sounding vocal from the mic. to the bright guitar
The lyrics however, have a bit more of a ‘swinging’ sound to them if you catch my drift (actually, sod that, old soul tunes are often filth as well …)
Last up is a rarity from me these days, given that much of the tunes churned out calling themselves ‘Ghetto Funk’ are, quite frankly, godawful.
