Three on a Thursday #134



Oops – one day late.

Still it’s to your benefit, as I was out watching two of Bristol’s finests funk DJs at The Lanes last night – The Allergies and Boca 45 (guys, it was lovely to see you lot again)

Still, belated tunes eh?

I was rummaging through old UK hip-hop albums today, and stumbled across and early Dr Syntax album I hadn’t heard before, Self Taught.

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 BrotherWhat a proper funk stomper.
