This one will be a bit of a mad dash this week and I’m writing this whilst allegedly packing for the family holiday, and discovering which bits of our camping gear is still covered with Gilcombe Farm mud from a more than slightly soggy, but still awesome FarmFestival.

How do you lot decide on which gigs to go to? I’m currently enjoying a surge in opportunities to go out, now the kids are a little older. Saw the awesome Mr Thing on Saturday, and tomorrow I’ve a choice of Powercut and Mr Lingo at Hy-Brasil or The Allergies and the Old Market Assembly.
Should you happen to spot a very tall beardy speccy chap in a flat cap down the front, at either of these, buy me a pint, eh?
Been a good music week so far, Excellent gig by Lack of Afro at the Lantern on Friday, and the new Sherwood and Pinch to have a go on, and digging for some lovely lovely tunes for you lot to listen to.
You should know the drill by now – some funk, some reggae, some beats, some breaks, some bleeps.
Get involved (below the fold obvs)
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 …
Here we are guys and gals, after a brief hiatus caused by my galavanting around the world, another Ctrl:Alt:TheBeat for you with tracks from Dirty Dike, DJ Rudd, Roast Beatz, The Funk League and whole host more.
(many thanks to Stu ElevenThirtyEight for playing it out for me)
Wow, I’ve been unbelievably shit at uploading these recently. Many apologies.
Been a while since I’ve posted one of these, what with one thing and another … still, hope you guys like it.
Here’s my ‘stand in’ slot from 23rd June – someone who was down to play the slot did a no show, so I jumped into the gap and winged it a little – great to play straight up and down hip-hop bangers, must do it more often.
I’m writing this in a demob happy mood, as I’m off to Cornwall to brew beer with a mate, and hopefully catch a few waves … either that or install myself in the local, cursing the lack of a decent swell.
So to warm you up for your weekend, here’s some Atlantic soul, a late night ghetto funk chiller and some crazy tweaked Italian jazziness. Enjoy!
