Three on a Thursday #137


microphone2On time this week eh?

Erm, yeah.

Sorry.

I blame the Rioja.

Ah well, onwards

First up in a lovely little track on 7″ (and Bandcamp, but what isn’t these days …). The A-side, The Zone Identity’s  Funk-I-Tus is a tidy number, but for me it’s the flip where the action is

I vaguely remember spinning some J-Zone stuff in the past but Let The Music Take Your Mind is a new one to me, all Hammond sweeps over a funky-as-hell  bass and breakbeat line

(h/t to Roy Moneyshot from The Allergies for this one)

I do like me a little bit of Drum and Bass, as can be seen from some of the recent posts on these pages, and many of the tracks I find come courtesy of my man, Nibbers.

Grumpy cuss by day, excellent selector by night, he’s turned me on to another belting roller by Addiction and Villem, entitled  Someone Somewhere.

 

Harangue the DJ is one of my favourite music columns, I’ve been known to lose hours in there rummaging for the tunes that the interviewees mention – some are rubbish, others truly aren’t my style, given that many of the DJs they talk to are far more on the house & techno end of the scale, but occasionally I stumble across some amazing things

Oren Ambarchi’s Hubris Pt. 1 is a sprawling 21 minute epic of downtempo lushness. It’s the kind of thing I can image sitting on a tropical beach somewhere watching sunset with a ridiculous cocktail in hand , and this on the system

Obsessive music nerd for since his formative years, Sherlock Ohms finally pulled his finger out and started inflicting his collection of Funk, Soul, Hip-hop, Reggae, Breaks, Beats and random ephemera on the unwitting public in mid-2008. Since then he's graced the airwaves of Big Chill FM and Purple Radio, the stages of the Festinho festival, and the DJ booths of the UK fluffing for the likes of DJ Moneyshot, Boca 45 and Ugly Duckling. Whether it's early morning chilled wig outs, or eclectic party starting beat fests there's a reason they call him 'No Shit Sherlock' View all posts by djsherlockohms
