I got a really good response to the first episode (thanks
everyone!) so here we go with the second; you can expect a new one
every month. I'll be aiming to keep it an easily digestible size
every time, and to make it something to look forward to!
Can't let this post go by without wishing Michael Jackson a
peaceful journey - that was definitely one of those "where were you
when you heard?" moments. I just had to include one of his tracks
this time around...
Peanut Butter Wolf ft.
: The Undercover
Not a club tune; definitely glad to
get a chance to play this one as it'd been on the shelf for
: Love To The
: Dance On Glass
Chester Copperpot with LongShot on
the mic (see what they did there?)
De La Soul
Originally available on the
Japanese release of the "The Impossible: Mission TV - Pt. 1"
compilation of unreleased tracks, though this is on a 12"
The "Infamy" album wasn't a popular
one but when the weather turns cold and the nights get longer, this
is an essential headphone track.
Kombo ft. Krondon
I got this 12" for 99p without even
listening to it - winner. The other side, "Sands Of Time" is
excellent too, though much more laid back.
: New York (Ya Out
From the post-Eric B "The 18th
Letter" LP, DJ Premier on the production for some classic
The "Vendetta" album wasn't all
that but this track cannot be denied.
: How Does It
From the 2004 "My Everything" album
on Blue Note; definitely one of my favourite female vocalists, and
the title links nicely with the next vocal track in the
: The World Is Yours
(Tip Mix Instrumental)
: Move Like This
: Sugar Hill (Remix
Dark and bright all at the same
time, this killer track has been getting a lot of play on my iPod
lately; the documentary of the same name is well worth checking
too, I got it for £4 on DVD the other day.
If you do hear anything you especially like do let me know, and
please support the artists - find more output of theirs on Spotify
to get a feel for it, go to live shows if you can (that's where
they really get paid) and buy the stuff you like the most!
