Into the VALLEY OF MF DOOM Part 2 – New Mix

2 03 2010

Yes yes pagans

As the legendary MF DOOM plots his first visit to Europe in many years, I felt it was appropriate to drop part 2 of my MF DOOM anthology. Skits, special herbs and full blown classics fill out an hour of hip hop genius. Enjoy!

Mix! A REINFORCED Sound Episode *2*

19 01 2010

Following on from the popularity of my first Reinforced Sound tribute mix – click HERE, I’ve put together another journey through the immense Reinforced Records library

This mix is very similar to the first one – a combination of hardcore tracks, rollers, breakbeat vibes – but adds a dash more jazz to the sound, using some sweet sweet samples – check out Fusion Forum’s “Vintage Keys (The Art)” to see what I mean. Another favourite is Chris Energy’s  “Around” from the Drum Perspectives EP – really technical drum programming from a man who now sells some wicked vinyl down Brick Lane! 🙂

Oh yes, and I know 4Hero’s ‘Dauntless’ was on Talkin Loud… just needed to put it in there!

As always, feedback welcomed. Enjoy!

Mix! A REINFORCED Sound Episode 1 – Tribute to ‘The R’

24 12 2009

Reinforced Records mean a lot to me, and it’s fair to say, their pioneering sound shaped my current love of music and helped educate me about music of the past.

I won’t provide a long, detailed bio on the label – there’s plenty out there on the web, like this one: http://www.discogs.com/label/Reinforced+Records

However, it’s clear that the diverse jungle / drum and bass sounds they put out on (seriously loud) vinyl spawned many many imitators, founded more than one ‘scene’ and inspired / developed artists such as Seiji, Domu and countless others. And when I say ‘scenes’, I’m referring to them being the grand-daddys of the drum and bass era, and also the catalyst for the nu-jazz / broken beat movement. It’s easy to overlook the influence Reinforced had on the music we love today, but just take a look at their discography and you’ll know how far they reached

I’ve been meaning to do these mixes for a while – well, I actually did a series of Reinforced compilations but they’re somewhere at home on D90 tapes! biggrin.gif
I’m not going to include every single track in this new series of mixes, but I will be going across the collection from 1993 thru to 2004

Enjoy and feedback welcome!

We’re Back! SpaceBass at Big Chill Bar – Sunday 1st Nov

26 10 2009

Hey rastas

We’re back at our spiritual home, the Big Chill Bar just off Brick Lane

Our last event with Diesel (X-Press 2 / Moton Records) was an absolute screamer – 6 hours of ridiculous bank holiday music shared with a party crowd that will be remembered for a long time… well, until we do our next party, which funnily enough is on Sunday 1st November

It’s a residents session at our favourite east-end venue, with a musical menu better than anything you’d see on Masterchef. Boogie to disco to deep house to shallow house to detroit to dalston to dubstep to funk. Old stuff, new stuff. Trust us, it will be proper.

Great Sunday food, a funny crowd sprinkled with the odd freak, and you’ve got a recipe for ACTION. Hope to see you there

New Mix – Strictly For My Ninjas vol 2

26 10 2009

Bit more digging into what I love the best…. cross genre business, mixed in one take, a bit erratic but basically that’s me. Spinning between the smoothness of Rodney Franklin’s ‘Felix Leo’ and Chaka Khan, to Mark E’s finest and then onto my re-edit of Mr Bumpman. Get’s a bit detroit in there for a bit, then ends a bit jazzy. You know the steez. Enjoy
