Ok, 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)
Two in a row – my word I am spoiling you lot aren’t I?
This week we’ve got some funky swinging bassy nonsense, some straight up and down soulful reggae, and a deep house-y chilled piece of business.
Onwards! Continue reading
Rapid one this week, my dear darling daughter has *finally* gone to sleep.
Just as heads up,I’m going to try and be a smidge more active on the blogging front – I’ve been a bit slack recently, so best sort it out, eh?
Keep your eye peeled, there’s a couple of bits and pieces in the pipeline.
I’m back (and I’m on time for once!)
This week almost writes itself … enjoy
Another week, another trio of top tunes!
Aren’t you lot lucky!
Wow, I’m on time with a Three on a Thursday, despite dragging myself in from beers in my rather sunny garden. How lucky are you lot?
It’s that time of the week again …
As you might expect, a load of the tracks that I’ve heard this week have been in some way ‘commemorating’ the untimely death of Adam Yauch, aka MCA from the Beastie Boys. Most, to be honest, are weak as fuck bandwagon jumping horseshit, and the people who made ’em should have a bit more respect.
Seriously, absolutely nothing I’ve heard on this tip is much cop at all, so I’m not recommending it.
Right, rant over. On to the tunes.
Just a quick holler for you hip-hop heads out there – I’ll be up on Purple Radio on Thursday dropping a solid hour of beats in a guest appearance on Hip to the Hop from 9-10 BST (listen in here)
This is my second appearance on this slot, with the first being one of my most popular shows, garnering over 1000 plays on soundcloud, a feature on the the Ghetto Funk blog, courtesy of the Funk Hunters, and lots of nice comments from randoms to fluff my already overactive ego, so this one better be a worthy successor eh?
Here’s a link to what you missed last time …
Ahoy kids, it’s that time of the week where I bless your ears with three of the best tunes that I’ve stumbled over in the previous week. Aren’t you lucky?
Brace yourselves, I’m going in dry!
Ahoy kids – running it close to the wire again, it’s Three on a Thursday time again!
This week brace yerselves for some Kiwi FunkHopSoul gubbins, a Latin beats workout and a wobbly pile of Funk and Hip-Hop samples …
