November Podcast DOWNLOAD (#64)




November's Podcast is now in the bag. If you didn't reach on Thursday night then you can check it out at your leisure - obviously it would be better if you got off your lazy arse and tuned in when it went out live, but I don't mind. Not at all.
Just be aware that I know where you live. I know your secrets. I know you still have Freddie - your childhood bear - in close proximity. Just tune in on the last Thursday of the month and we shall say no more.

Toodle-pip, gang!

5 Rock Veterans Who Can't Handle Hip-Hop

Gene Simmons: "I am looking forward to the death of rap"

I think we're all aware that not everybody likes us - but we don't care.
Ageing old rockers declaring that they think 'rap is crap' has been going on since the days of the Sugarhill Gang and isn't anything new at all.
However, bucking the trend are 5 rock stars who DO like hip-hop as well.

So read on and let's cheer those with sense and hiss & boo those without.

Record Review - Remark - Soul b/w Being Human


"Can't Deny It, 'Cos There's More Than Meets The Eye"


There is a sense of heavy urgency with a huge, busy beat helping the song to convey it's message in this full-on sonic assault.
The a-side, 'Soul' is a return to form from Sublime Wizardry MC, Remark aka The Remarkable One as this 7" offering (a self-released, totally independent exercise) shows.
The layered samples are reminiscent of Public Enemy production circa 1990 (the "I know you got soul' vocal sample is a subtle nod) and work well in this isolated aural paranoia where the one lone voice is screaming out a message of sanity.
At points there is so much going on in the mix that Remark's voice is almost enveloped by the production which is a shame as 7" Soul is one of the more salient pieces of wax in this increasing world of fluffy, throwaway rap.

'Being Human' on the flipside begins with more great cuts from DJ Tones as he rips up the legendary pop-ska group, Madness. This is a much smoother track but not easy like a Sunday morning kind of smooth. Still keeping that wicked flow over an almost dub-heavy rhythm with crashing, full-flavoured reverby, as-fat-as-ya-like snares.

As much as I love both tracks I really do like the production on Being Human more and I'm not sure why. It's very subtle but maybe it's just the little touches like the reversed keys at the intro or the extra crunching drums that come in just at the right time.

Remark always has that experimental steez with non-compromising lyrics destined to make you think while you nod your head and clap your hands to what he's doing - always on tempo, Jack.
In the background providing the extra sheen is DJ Tones polishing that wax like Mr Miyagi. Super-quick and clean cuts just elevate Remark's vocals and give the songs that further stroke of professionalism.

As well as producing this fat slab of wax The Remarkable 1 has also overseen a music video for each cut. Taking that Roy Castle approach and bringing the dedication because that's what we need.

This release is available now on limited edition 7" vinyl and digital download. Go HERE to get your copy but hurry if you want the physical.

Ever forward, ever upwards.
Listen, I don't care who you are. Go out and buy. This. Record.
Food for ya cranium lets you see the essential, chomp it all down and release your potential. Don't be another flunky bowing down, deferential, this is what you need to become influential.

Support UK rap.

ABU Podcast October Super Special




Ladies and gentlemen.....

This Thursday is the ABU Podcast Thursday. I am being welcomed by my fellow music men - LG from Digging 4 Victory and Waxer from Disco Scratch - as we do our second collaboration this year.

Now, over the summer all three of us were enthralled by an 8-part supernatural drama series on Netflix called, Stranger Things. In brief, it is set in 1983 and focusses on a little rural town in Indiana in the USA and a bunch of childhood friends of which one of whom goes missing.
Imagine a spooky tv series directed by Steven Spielberg and John Carpenter back in the early 1980s featuring a great period synth-laden soundtrack and you're halway there.

With Halloween on the horizon we decided to get together and produce a 2-hour mixtape with each of us concentrating on a specific part of the series of no more than 40-minutes long.

Make sure you tune in to hear the results this coming Thursday (27th) from 9pm on http://discoscratch.co.uk/radio. Groundbreaking stuff.


If Stranger Things has largely passed you by then check out the trailer below and see what you think.

Andy Cooper (Ugly Duckling) - It Was James Brown

Fantastic single from Ugly Duckling's frontman, Andy Cooper.
'It Was James Brown' is a great little ditty showing how much of an influence JB has been on hip-hop - not that we needed reminding, but this is nicely-produced using short snippets of the 'Godfather''s greatest hits.
At just two minutes long though it leaves you wanting a whole lot more.

We Got Twitter, Yo

Ageing B-Boys....keeping up to date like it was 2009, yo.
We got our Twitter groove on. Just check to the right of the page - if you're on a laptop/PC.
Those fancypants kids on smartphones don't get this option unless you select 'view web version'.

Keep up to date with all the useless drivel that we're too lazy to write about in the blog.

ABU - we're gifted and we're goin' far.

Pip-pip,
Repo
