Three on a Thursday #120


f10cf618a58f9d0ba282459d5927d293Two in two weeks for you – how’s that for an attempt at being consistent again

(won’t last)

Starting on a surreal tip, fancy a cover version of a classic soul track?

In a different language to the original?

Chinese different enough?

If so, laydeez and gennelmen,  I give you the legendary  Nancy Sinatra’s anthem – Bang Bang, covered by Betty Chung.

It’s all the ace!

(HT to the man, the legend, the Funky Russian, DJ Vadim for this one)

I’ve been loving 22tracks recently. For those of you who don’t know is a site/app where genre based track lists of 22 tracks are curated by various DJs and artists, updated pretty much weekly

Playlists are listed be genre and city, with London, Amsterdam, Paris and Brussels represented. Genre’s atend to be keyed to the city, so more hard house in the ‘Dam and more Bashment in London. The selectors are pretty decent, throwing up a load of odds and sods I’ve never heard before.

This next track was on Chris P Cuts London Hip-hop playlist, and features the well known producer, Kev Brown, looping up guitar slides and piano lines over a wonderful kick drum, aided and abetted by Hassan Mackay and Kaimbr on the accurately named Dope 

Last up this week is another lift from 22tracks, and yes I am a little obsessed. This one comes from the Funk playlist from Paris’s Psycuts and is from Kiwi Funkateer, Julian Dyne.

Maddingos drips with Quantic-esque dusty horn stabs, with a riotus carnival of drums firing underneath, an some bloopy synth driving things along. Nice
