Ahhhh, the computer nerd in me likes the number 128, so I’m kinda glad we made it to this one.
This weeks we’ve got some hip-hop (quelle supris), and a sprinking of reggaeish dubsteppy nonsense, and some funked up Soul Sisters
I first stumbled across these miscreants in the hallowed racks of the legendary and now sadly turned-into-yet-another-bloody-coffee-shop Imperial Records, where I found their debut ‘Music for the Mature B-Boy’ which if you haven’t heard you *really* should.
It’s been a while since these boys have released anything, but there’s an album in the works, Still Hungry, which features this huge pile of swirling Hammond chords over a rattling 130bpm skittering break called Diamond Hammer
After some judicious rummaging, I pulled out some belters, the best of which (ok, the best which I didn’t already have) is probably this reboot of Ella Fitzgerald‘s cover of Creams Sunshine of Your Love, done by Cee-roo
Last up this week is a mellow wee number which comes to me courtesy of Bristol Reggae big boy, Mr Benn.
Been a fan of Gardna’s flow for a while and this slightly dubsteppy-but-with-a-touch-of-tropical-bass-late-night-bidness tune he’s done with Kreed is a rather appropriately titled Midnight – out soon on Boom sound Recordings
