Oops – one day late.
Still, belated tunes eh?
I read about it on a hiphop blog a couple of weeks back, largely in the context of a track called Subcultures and how there’s an updated version knocking about, but after a listen through the track that stuck out for was Max Miller – the beat is pretty simple, but it’s the lyrical dexterity that hits you – especially when its delivered in such laconic style
Next up is a EPIC cover of a The Jacksons Shake Your Body by Suzy Brown, as dropped by Boca 45 last night.who does a wonderful job of reggae-ifying the original – I do like the stuff that Mukatsuku drop, and this is a belter.
(I’ve just looked through to the vinyl version of this one, and discovered I’ve recommended the flip side of this in ToT #123 …)
Last one this week was also from the gig last night, this time dropped by The Allergies. I know some of 70’s funk group War‘s work, most famously Low Rider, but I’d not heard Me And Baby Brother. What a proper funk stomper.
