Three on a Thursday #156

e42518_i38692_s4Ok, I’ll admit it, in a haze of cheese, turkey and Quality Street, I forgot what day, hell, what week it even was it was, hence the non-emergence of anything on the blog from me, since before Christmas.

Ooops – best rectify that now.

(Oh, and many thanks for The Canteen and the thoroughly goofy and highly talents Mustard Brass Band for having me play on the 23rd – check those guys and gals out, especially if you like barefoot breakdancing tuba players, as pictured above)

First up in the  ToT of the year is courtesy of an end of year summary from re-edit legend Greg Wilson. I’d not heard of  Discotron before, and Ghetto Funk to me was a genre, not a track …

Kicks and claps build to a low down chug with a touch of a Q-Tip vocal sample into a wall of strings. Lovely little mid-tempo discofied hip-hop influenced dancefloor winner I reckon.

Available on the My Nu Joint EP over on Bandcamp

Next is Beat Bop, a mellow little hip-hop work-out from the early 80’s, courtesy of Rammellzee & K-Rob,

Aside from being a wonderful little slice of alternative hip-hop, with it’s simple loop and vocal effects, it’s perhaps best know as being the tune over closing sequence of Style Wars, as well as being produced by legendary grafitti artist/painter Jean-Michel Basquiat.

Last up this week comes courtesy of another little end of year round up from the King of Cardiff Beer and Beats, the Cwrw Guru himself, Marky de Sade.

The world and his wife must be familiar with California Love, the iconic 2pac & Dr Dre  G Funk number, but I’d not heard the awesome Sly5thave orchestral cover version.

If its your kinda thing, there’s an entire album of orchestral Dre covers over on his Bandcamp
