ABU! Disco Scratch Takeover Show - July 2012

It was the last Thursday of the month so it was Podcast-time just the other day.

After the initial two tracks I decided to carry on the show with a continuous mix with some Hardnoise, Strafe and Chuck Chillout amongst others.
The DJ Track Of The Month was taken from Biz Markie's Goin Off album from 1988 and is Cool V's Tribute To Scratching which was of course, Cool V's turn to shine. There was another version released on Hot Chillin' a little while ago but I have to keep things original here and so used the album version.

The Album Spotlight is provided by The Pharcyde and taken from their great debut, 'Bizarre Ride To The Pharcyde' from 1993 (Delicious Vinyl). Many thanks to Jim Cee for suggesting the tracks this month.

And of course, this month there was a special guest in the house. Regular listeners to Disco Scratch Radio will no doubt be familiar to one Schnoogly Boom Boom McCutiekins who is the producer of such hits as Puff Outta Tipton and his recent Fluff Tipton.
Now I say he was a guest "in the house" but in fact he was not actually live in the flesh but rather live via a Skype conversation. Therefore I cannot tell you what he really looks like.

So, all this plus various classic hip hop and Electro oddities await you in this month's edition. And I must mention that ABU! was blessed with two voicemails from two separate celebrities; one from K-Sly who gave us a really great drop for the show; the other was from Bionic of the London Posse who gave us a brief insight into the harsh pitfalls of living with Rodney P.

Disco Scratch and ABU! will now be taking a break for the summer with no live shows until September 6th when Waxer will return for the regular Thursday evenings.

Also this month's show contains some NSFW content due to the special guest ;-)

That, my anonymous friend, is none other than the gorgeous Rachel Riley from Channel 4's Countdown.

Dope as ever Ben, the interview with Shnoogly & the Puff Outta Tipton track were a comedy masterclass plus I never tire of listening to House Calls and Brothers on the Slide. Also think that Kool Chip/Chuck Chillout LP is very underrated, although I must say I've never much liked Last Night.

Question: who is it that says "yes!" at the start of the ABU theme? Sounds familiar...

Have a great summer old son!

Repo said...

Indeed, Mark. I don't think I ever play much Wreckin Crew which is a shame as they were THE West Coast group I remember being really into at that time. If it didn't have heavy, rhythmic breathing in the tune then fugeddaboutit. And I do like a bit of DMX drums.

And that mystery voice at the beginning of the ABU theme is none other than comedy-Hobbit Bill Bailey. It's from one of his live shows I have on dvd.
Damn. Letting the secrets out... ;-)

Ah, thought it sounded familiar. Yes, I like this "Bill Bailey" of yours.
