Repo's Rumsey Rubadub Mix


When I did a session at Norwich's Hip Hop night at The Rumsey Wells the other Saturday I thought most of the tracks seemed to flow well with each other. And since it wasn't recorded I decided to have a crack at recreating the mix at home.
Golden-Age cuts along with some beats for the dancefloor b-boys.

Have a listen below or right-click and Save for later.

Repo's Rumsey Rubadub

If anyone has any mixes of their own featuring a similar style, genre and era - I cannot stress the word 'era' any more importantly (well, I can put it in bold) - then let me know and I'll happily feature it.
I think you are all knowledgeable on what to send, yes? Anything clearly destined for my spam folder will be held up and ridiculed - I reserve that right.

Hugs,

Reeps

The October 2012 ABU Takeover Show - DOWNLOAD


Disco Scratch was back on the air on Thursday - although a few, me included, had issues trying to connect - and it was the ABU Takeover Show.

Once again it was the DS chatroom that proved where where the action is. And due to the lack of female interest last night, it was a rather sweaty, heaving, testosterone-heavy onslaught of filth certainly not recommended for the uninitiated. And remember, what happens in the chatroom STAYS in the chatroom...!

A couple of Halloween treats this month rather than the full-on scare-fest that was last October's Show. along with the usual Album Spotlight, Funk Trunk, Roots Of The Roots (double-helping) and all manner of general hip-hop silliness that accompanies the Takeover Show.

ABU Crew Live In Norwich TONITE


 I will be guesting tonight at the premier monthly hip hop night in Norwich (downstairs @The Rumsey Wells) alongside Mr Eps (as heard on Future Radio). Residents DJ Just-1 and Chrome will be rocking the decks as usual.

As always it'd be great to see any of you down there. It's always a jovial atmosphere and the music selection is spot-on.
Opens at 8pm until midnight.

Grandmixer DST Source Sample

I found this today but it's got me thinking that I may go on another time-consuming search.

It's the 'scream' that's heard in the Grandmixer DST track, Why Is It Fresh? at the part where the guy says, "now why don't we make believe we're in school....".
I found the scream whilst listening to a Power Records rip on Youtube. It's all rather silly with some over-the-top voice actors and the scream appears behind some speech. The fact that it's not entirely clear makes me wonder that it was a stock piece of audio and must've been taken from a larger library of sounds.
I fear I shall not rest until I've found the proper source.....

This goes out to my boy, Irish Craig in particular.



Go to 4 mins 35 for the scream.



The scream is here at 4mins 27 of this Captain America adventure.

Inch High Takeover on DSR THURSDAY 11th

 
 
The Queen is in session! 
It's another Inchy Takeover on Disco Scratch Radio TOMORROW evening (11th Oct). Funkety-funk and hippity-hop all being played from vinyl. Mmmm, nice.
 
Inch High73 always provides a dope mix whenever she springs up on DS or indeed via her Soundcloud page and so is well recommended and receives the official ABU double-thumbs-up.
 
Tune in as always to http://discoscratch.co.uk/radio/ at 9pm. There are a number of ways to listen once you've hit the page - personally I try to listen to anything on the net via a stream to VLC (iTunes and Quicktime are long-time bugbears with me and I WILL try to avoid any use possible)

ABU Podcast September 2012 - Patti Astor Interview


What a night that was.

Last night was the (slightly later edition) Ageing B-Boys Unite! Takeover Show (listen to it just below)......

 Ageing B-Boys Unite! Takeover show

......on Disco Scratch Radio and in an exclusive interview I was privileged to be able to speak to the legendary Patti Astor.

Fred, Patti & LEE
Patti has an encyclopedic memory and seems to remember everything that went on whilst she was busy being Queen of the Downtown Scene in the early 80's. Check the show if you haven't as she has some great anecdotes.
Also if you didn't know, Patti is set to release her autobiography, 'Fun Gallery... The True Story' this Saturday (6th October) which is guaranteed to hold more than it's fair share of historical hip hop stories, legendary artists and Patti's whole back-story.
There is a special book launch being held in New York City at Clic Bookstore and Gallery, 255 Centre St , New York, New York 10013. A Facebook Group has been set up, too which you can visit here.

In the interview we mentioned a couple of her earlier films, Bachelorette Pad and Get Tux'd (which features performances from Ice T, Prince Whipper Whip and Hen G). Here they both are on Youtube.

Note: for the completetists, even though this was broadcast at the beginning of October I have labelled this as September just to stop any confusion when the 'proper' October show is broadcast at the end of the month. Word!

The ABU! Podcast - Patti Astor Special TONITE!



Tonight is the ABU! Takeover Show on Disco Scratch Radio. And we have a scoop.

For the first time, we have a special guest in interview. But being that ABU deals strictly with the original old school we have someone who comes from the real heart of hip hop during the first era of hip hop. I am very pleased to say that our inaugural guest interviewee is none other than Patti Astor.

Patti was right in the centre when hip hop was at it's earliest stage. Being in New York City, she witnessed the people who would soon become instrumental in making the culture what it became and regularly rubbed shoulders with luminaries such as Fab 5 Freddy, Dondi, Rammellzee, Charlie Ahearn, Glenn O' Brien, Keith Haring, Crazy Legs, Kenny Scharf amongst many others.

Please join me tonight as Patti has crazy stories to tell and a varied musical taste as a background to speak over. Listen as she talks about the events behind Wild Style where she played Virginia, the journalist looking to break the story of hip hop in the South Bronx.

This is really not to be missed.
Tune in tonight at 9pm (GMT) at the usual place Disco Scratch Radio
