Ahoy kids, I’m back!
Apologies about the lack of a ToT last week – sadly had to spend 8-9hrs driving to and from visiting a very ill relative and really *really* wasn’t in the right headspace to write anything.
That’s not happened this week though, so we’re back with the beat (and rhymes – yes – it’s a bit hip-hop heavy this week …)
More loveliness incoming from the guys over at Cast-a-Blast in the form of the Outta Here EP from the MustBeat Crew.
Those nice gents from Cast-a-Blast have blessed my inbox with yet more promo loveliness, this time from DJ Tzinas which I felt compelled to share with you this morning – raging hangover, or no raging hangover.
Best get the coffee on and hope inspiration strikes ‘eh?
I don’t know what’s going on at the moment, but there’s a serious pile of seriously good releases piling up in my inbox, that I feel the urge to share with you crazy kids.
Today it’s the latest offering from the guys at Cast-a-Blast records dropping their latest chunk of reggae-hop stylings from Dedy Dread & DJ Rebel.
Criss & Shine is a mutant reggae hop swing beat stepper with a lovely bounce and vocals from the self styled “Indian Ragamuffin” Delhi Sultanate representing.
The Blend Mishkin remix drops his trademarked wobble into mix, making the original a more electroesque affair, nudging it closer to a dancehall style, and making it a surefire winner for your ‘warming the crowd’ crate. I can just imagine the winding booties every time I hear this one.
Turntable Dubbers adds an almost Iberian tinge to the track with a Spanish-esque guitar chords to the fore, before a Bollywood string line hits you … clever stuff.
This one drops on the 19th Sept ’11 and is well worth a few of your hard earned shekels.
Yes, ok, mea culpa, mea maxima culpa. It’s only the second Thursday I’ve missed in six months – largely down to a week of 12hr days stuck in a hotel in the arse end of Paris with no wifi. Whoever said business travel was cool …
Right enough whinging, on with the show.
Thanks to those of you who came down to Timbuk2 on Friday – good news is they loved it and I’m back giving it some red-hot room 2 action on the 12th August whilst Nebula bosh out the DnB in the main room. Excellent.
If you can’t wait that long before a slice of Sherlock, I’m playing the upstairs bar on Big Chill Bristol with the man like Powercut from Funk from the Trunk
Onwards to the tunes!
Yet more niceness in my inbox courtesy of the Cast-a Blast crew, and in the week before St Pauls Carnival in Bristol – it’s almost like they knew I was after some new reggae based beats to air …
