Three on a Thursday #94


2013-03-10 12.20.15

I’m back (and I’m on time for once!)

This week almost writes itself … enjoy

First up is a track from the Granddaddies of conscious hip-hop, De La Soul. Get Away  (feat. the Spirit of the Wu)  is a rant, or at least as much a one as you will ever get from the pioneers of the Daisy Age, against the corporate, soulless, image obsessed parody of itself that commercial hip-hop has become.

Seriously loving this, both the tune and message. Why can’t it all be like this

It wouldn’t be a Three on a Thursday without something to shake your rump to, and this week it comes courtesy of Krafty Kuts.

Proving that every cloud has a silver lining, after breaking his leg on the slopes at Snowbombing a couple of weeks back, he’s just dropped a reboot of The Party Squad’s Lighterman which he made whilst holed up recovering.

Cue a dancefloor busting, beat breaking. skanking monster of a track – the boy is back to his best!.

Last up this week is a wicked little Rufus Thomas number ths been thoroughly Ghetto-fied by one of the most reliable producers in the genre, Slynk. So reliable in fact, that this is the second week on the bounce that I’ve featured his tunes …

Just listening to his Fried Chicken Remix makes me hungry
