About djsherlockohms

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'

Summers here!

And just in time for Glasto as well, which to be fair descends into a Somme-like mire of cowshit and mud, complete with Trenchfoot and dodgy-food-van-related dysentery pretty much every other year.

Not that I’m jealous of those going.

Obviously.

Not even a little bit.

The rain it raineth on the just
And also on the unjust fella;
But chiefly on the just, because
The unjust hath the just’s umbrella .

Soggy out there isn’t it? And I’m off camping in it as well.

See you next week once I’ve dried out.

First camping session of the year done, followed by kids birthday parties and other craziness – I’m glad I’m back to listening to tunes tbh, it’s a lot less hectic!

If you like what I do here, then catch me playing at For The Love of Music over in Gloucester in July – many of the tunes I’ve pimped will no doubt be played there.

Last night was mad prep for my eldest’s 8th birthday today (Happy Birthday Charlie!), so no red hot Thursday action from me, but I’m making up for it now.

Tracks below the break, as per usual.

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 …

First for a while, as, well, life isn’t it.

Got a couple of gig announcements up on the page up there if you’re interested as well.
