Three on a Thursday #172


Back to some sort of regularity!

(OK, a day late due to different version of being on different laptops, but hey, two in two weeks right?)


Seems like DJ Yoda has grown up a little from his hyperactive cut ‘n’ paste days (fun though they were). The all-new tartrazine and sugar free beatsmith dropped his new album, Home Cooking, on 12th April, and it’s far more song-centric than his previous efforts, with a stellar cast of collaborators, including Andrew Ashong, the Jungle Brothers and Eva Lazarus.

It’s quality throughout, but the track that popped after the first couple of listens was Thornton Heath featuring Omar, a lovely little neo-soul bubbler, with a very Kid Koala-esque scratch trumpet line.

Track 2 comes courtesy of Italian DJ, producer and crate digger, Woxow,
who has bought us Chaos, somehow managing to cajole rocksteady legend Ken Boothe, J5’s Akil and Blurum13 onto the same reggae drenched beat, which has then been ably flipped by DJ Maars. Lovely, and the B-side by Smile Davis ain’t bad either.

Last up this week is Get a Hold On This from self-declared “Plymouth’s 14th best DJ”, Aldo Vanucci, and what a neo-northern soul banger it is.

Big bass guitar line, stomping, shuffling drums and Kylie Auldist sounding like all of the The Supremes all rolled into one antipodean soul diva, this is a proper dancefloor belter.

Cracking remixes from The Allergies and Dr Rubberfunk on the flip as well …
